On this episode of Under the Library:
Leaving the pharmacy, Sam opens the journal that Belinda gave him and recognizes Jo’s hand. He heads to the hotel to find Elroy, and arrives to see Colette bursting out of the restaurant next door. Sam recognizes Colette from their brief encounter at Richard’s house. She denies it, claiming her name is Lulu, and Buddy joins to support her.
Eddy, who hung back to watch for a tail, rejoins the group as Sam feeds Colette’s paranoia with stories of a transmissible disease spread from the facility. Eddy, realizing he’s still ravenous, starts in on a bag of Sam’s circus peanuts.
Sister B has killed the second man in the pharmacy, guiding Ethan’s knife into his abdomen. She pats the men down but finds no identification or unique traits, only matching burn marks on their biceps. She orders Ethan out of the pharmacy with her and they return to the convent, where she enlists the nuns’ help in traveling to the train station as soon as possible.
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.
