On this episode of Under the Library:
At the train station, Sister B rigs a switch to briefly halt a passing train. She and Ethan climb on top, but the train lurches as she opens a hatch. Ethan is knocked off as she falls in.
In her room at the hotel, Collette packs her belongings and meticulously erases any sign of her presence from the room. Standing in front of the mirror, she flashes back to the facility. Meanwhile, after eating enough for 4 at Mamma Tacconi’s, Eddy heads back to the hotel and his knock jars Collette from her vision.
Sam packs and prepares the farm for their trip to New Bloodstone, instructing a neighbor to always leaves a cow out.
Buddy, also in his room at the hotel, finally opens the letter. It seems to be from his father, who abandoned he and his mother long ago. As our episode comes to a close, Buddy notices that the cancellation on the stamp is from 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.
