On this episode of Under the Library:
This week on Under the Library, Sam leaves Elroy’s room to talk with Buddy and Collette, and they discuss the possibility of going to Bloodstone. Later in the conversation Henry overhears Sam talking about exploding heads and confronts him, chasing him off at gunpoint.
Buddy and Collette leave to visit Dr. Gardener and on the drive Collette admits she’s tired of living the life of a fugitive. When they arrive, Ellen the assistant engages Buddy in conversation made awkward by her extreme nervousness as Collette (alias Lulu) heads into the back with the doctor. Their conversation quickly stalls as Collette asks very specific questions while refusing to share information about her situation.
In the meantime, Sam drives back to the farm and his family. He retrieves the bike from the back of his truck and leaves it on the porch as he enters the house. Cheryl is nowhere to be found, but Amos is thrilled to finally receive his new bike! Sam finally finds Cheryl on the back porch and proposes a family vacation to Bloodstone.
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.
