On this episode of Under the Library:
Eddy wakes, ravenously hungry, to see Buddy examining the mysterious book. As they discuss who will hold onto it, Colette knocks on the door. She shares her sketches of the murder house and the abduction, and Buddy examines them closely as Eddy crunches on crackers in the background, and Colette herself sits across the room, lost in horrible thoughts.
In a flashback, we learn that Sam researched Bloodstone in the local library. He learned there was a shocking loss of life in the mines, and lingering questions about the fate of the miners’ wives and children.
Sister B brings her new brain sample to Ethan at the pharmacy, who is anxious and visibly disturbed by the sample. He admits that men came to the pharmacy looking for Sister B, and he spoke to them. The Sister realizes the men hurt Ethan, and as he begs her to slip out the back, a bell rings and two men enter the pharmacy.
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 fictitious) 1942 New Mexico and follows the misadventures of Collette (Emily), Eddy (Scott), Sam (Rick), Sister B (Wayne), and Buddy (Arthur). 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.
