On this episode of Under the Library, a Call of Cthulhu Podcast:
Colette’s dream merges with reality as she awakens to the sound of screams in the train. She heads toward the front to investigate, stopping to help Amanda usher the bloody woman to her compartment.
In the meantime, Sam has left Amanda behind, moving into the dining car to find Buddy attempting to burn the cover of the book and then spearing it on an ice pick. Buddy then tries to light a page on fire, and manages to light himself instead. Colette enters the car to see Sam tackle a burning Buddy, and as our session comes to a close, Colette notices a few drops of blood on her cuff.
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.
