On this episode of Under the Library:
At the pharmacy, Sister B discovers that the men who questioned Ethan also hurt him. This makes her decision easy as she deceives the men by pretending to exit through the back door. As they approach she shoots one, killing him, and wounds the other, intentionally leaving Ethan an opportunity for revenge.
At the hotel, Buddy notices a spot marked “ring” on Colette’s map, and she shows them the ring she discovered at the murder house. Colette is still thrown by the previous night’s visions, but reluctantly agrees to leave the hotel and get some dinner with Eddy and Buddy.
Sam, still in the bar in the Straits, continues to talk with Jim the bartender. He learns that a man named Elroy disappeared and then reappeared, a shadow of his former self. The community pays for his room at the hotel. Sam then heads to the general store and meets Belinda, Jo’s former boss. Although she’s initially hostile, she recognizes that Sam cares for Jo and gives him Jo’s old notebook.
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.
