On this episode of Under the Library, a Call of Cthulhu Podcast:
Buddy rushes back to his compartment to question the book about the illness that Sam suspects is spreading, and it answered with a series of inscrutable pictures and patterns.
Days pass, and as the train draws closer to Bloodstone, Johnny and Colette talk about Eddy, his notes, and his plans for the future of the investigation in Bloodstone. They also speak to Sam, who shares his own connections to the town.
On another train, Sister B wakes, head pounding, and realizes that the train has slowed. She hears voices yell outside and realizes she’s been unconscious a long time.
As the episode draws to a close, Johnny, Colette, and Sam realize that the only way to answer their questions about Eddy would be to talk to Buddy, who has been strangely withdrawn, holed up in the rear compartment with the strange book.
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. Find us at https://underthelibrary.com.
