On this episode of Under the Library, a Call of Cthulhu Podcast:
Johnny Daunte exits the dining car, heading towards the locomotive and hoping to notify an authority of the incident. He eventually reaches the conductor, who gives Johnny full authority to direct the clean up and investigation. Johnny instructs the staff to wrap the remains and store them in one of the food prep fridges.
In the meantime, Colette watches Buddy shoot and stab the book, but to no avail. As they leave the dining car Buddy refuses to talk to Colette and only wants to protect the passengers from the book. Buddy flees down the train as Colette seeks out Amanda to update her on the situation.
As our session comes to a close, Buddy has locked himself in his compartment with the book as he hears a voice ask “are you mad at me?”
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.
