The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program :: Episode 2 :: A Murder Most Mysterious

Posted by NerdyShow on September 30, 2015

COCFINAL 1400The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program is live tabletop roleplaying turned into a 1930s radio serial. What dark deeds unfold on the streets of Arkham?  And which unwitting souls – innocent or impure – will succumb to the maddening call… OF CTHULHU! This 8-part miniseries, entitled “The Black Birth”, is wrought with unknowable horror and black comedy.

Previously – The denizens of Big Momma’s boarding house were shaken from their sleep by a shrill scream and ghastly news. A police officer had come calling with questions about their housemate, Hannah Pickering, who had been found dead – the result of a savage attack. But the scream that woke them was that of the kindly Ma, who, while helping the officer, was struck by own tenant: Father Grandfather. The elderly bible salesman was taken into custody for his assault; yet shockingly by all accounts appears to not have been the murderer. Now, as the sun rises over Arkham, light is cast on the sinister leavings of the cruel night. These five unlikely companions find themselves faced with a mystery and a benefactor that can make it worth their while to solve it.
