On this Episode of Under the Library:
Carly and Jo tell Sister B that Richard is dead, and they share details about how he died. Sister B seems strangely unaffected and shares a theory that it was a trick and Richard isn’t actually dead. Jo can’t deal with this and heads to the kitchen for a glass of water (and slips out the side door). Sister B heads for the bedrooms to talk to Carly, but Carly asks her to leave.
Back in Los Alamos, Buddy tails Lana until she disappears down an alley beside the locked theater. He rejoins Eddy and the two return home to sleep, planning to continue their investigation in daylight. They find piles of pallets in the back of the alley below a window. They climb up and, finding the window unlocked, enter a small dressing room on the second floor of the theater. It’s silent, no sign of Lana, and they eventually head down to the first floor. Backstage there are strange patterns drawn on the floor in white powder, probably the remnants of a ritual.
After slipping out of the house, Jo walks down the road and sees a familiar truck. Sam pulls over and Jo fills him in on the day. She hesitantly asks if he can get rid of the Russian nun because she’s untrustworthy and made Carly faint. Sam agrees, and leaves Jo to take a walk by her old home.
Under the Library, an actual-play Call of Cthulhu podcast, where cosmic horror is steeped in mystery and slathered with self-deprecating humor. Our main storyline, a sandbox created by our Keeper (Michael), is set in (a fictions) 1942 Los Alamos NM and follows the misadventures of Boone (Chris), Jo (Emily), Culligan (Scott), Bello (Rick), Rutherford (Wayne), and Franny (Artur). We focus on narrative, improv, and character building. We may stick our heads in front of a train because that’s what our character would do, and when we look under the bed even the Keeper may not know what we’ll find. We’re crafting a story, creating flawed characters, suspenseful events, and fulfilling revelations. Call of Cthulhu is a horror TTRPG; characters die horribly graphic deaths. It’s for mature audiences, but played by immature people.
