The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program :: Episode 6 :: The Truth’s Slimy Trail
The 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.
The renters at Big Mama’s Boarding House have uncovered a dark secret. The young woman they knew as Hannah Pickering was but a mask worn by her true self: the debased and tormented Miriam Hetfield. Having read Miriam’s haunting diary, Cyril and Deloras, along with the deranged Father Grandfather, return to the boarding house to share their grim discovery with Sam and Hank Jr.
It’s now daybreak and the morning sun finds them considering the twisted past of their deceased friend, and the answers that may wait for them in her hometown – the backwater village of Dunwich.
