Those of you lucky enough to be at the GAMA Trade Show, eagle-eyed internet super sleuths and uber-fans on our forums might have already seen the cover image for our next supplement for The One Ring Roleplaying Game: Horse-lords of Rohan.
But, for everybody else, we thought we’d show it in all its glory today!
On the shelves of US gaming stores now – The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space.
Each of the Doctor Sourcebooks is a must for fans of the show and gamers alike, as they're a complete guide to the televised adventures of each of the Doctor's incarnations, presenting detailed information about each episode alongside material for use in the game, from NPCs and gadgets to aliens and creatures!
But The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook is more than just a guide to the show – it also contains a complete, 12-part campaign too, the Doom of the Daleks.
You can never have enough dice, that's something every gamer knows to be true. And, with that in mind, we’re pleased to announce that our new Green Dice Set for use with The One Ring Roleplaying Game is available to pre-order on our webstore now! They will also be available in all good games stores in May.
We’ve also restocked the original bone-coloured version of The One Ring Dice Set, just in case you don’t have enough dice – we’re joking of course, we know you can never have enough dice!
Hitting the shelves of US gaming stores this week –The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook!
The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook is the latest in our line of supplements for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space covering the adventures of each incarnation. It also contains an epic twelve-part campaign – Doom of the Daleks – that sees the Doctor’s companions journeying back through his timeline to save him from the Daleks’ most insidious weapon.
Welcome back! We’ve all been away over Easter taking a well-earned break, but are back at our respective desks and raring to go!
We’ve got all sorts of news and new products for you over the coming weeks, from Keltia and The SOE Handbook for World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour, to covers for forthcoming One Ring supplements, our next Kickstarter and more besides – as always, keep an eye on the website! The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook is also in US stores this week, and we’ll be taking another look at that tomorrow.
But, today we thought we’d take a quick look back at some of our recent news and new releases, to bring you all up to speed.
We're making great strides laying out The Lone Wolf Adventure Game and will have some extracts and art to share with you soon!

The Laundry RPG recently appeared in a Bundle of Holding deal, and we were bowled over by the response. The Laundry is now in the hands of hundreds more gamers.
As is inevitable with such a darkly funny book, parts of it have started appearing on social media as new Laundry players share their personal highlights with their friends. One particular section from the print edition of the core Laundry manual seems to have really struck a chord. At the time of writing it's been retweeted 647 times, with 520 favourites. It has had 145 +1s on Google plus and 126 shares. It's just reaching Facebook now as far as we can see.
We've never really gone viral before (there was that one time with the Yggdrassil video on youtube but that's another story), so we thought we'd share.
@hishgraphics shared this shot of the Laundry core book, and it's gone crazy:
About The Laundry
The Laundry Files Roleplaying Game novels by Charles Stross. In the game, you play officers of the Laundry, that eccentric and underfunded agency dedicated to protecting the United Kingdom from unthinkable horrors. The Laundry uses the Basic Roleplaying System - the same system that powers the classic Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game (so you can easily convert adventures from one game to the other). As Laundry staff, you're trained to deal with the weird and ghastly spawn of the Mythos, you're equipped with the best equipment your committee-approved mission budget can buy, and you've got back-up on call from the SAS.
All of that means you're only terrifyingly underprepared, as opposed to completely screwed, when the shoggoth hits the fan.
Some reviews of the Laundry RPG:
The GAMA trade show is an annual get-together for games manufacturers, distributors and retailers. It all happens in Las Vegas, and just as in previous years Cubicle 7 was in attendance - this year, however, we were co-sponsors for the first time!
Being based in the UK Las Vegas is a long way for us to travel but we find GAMA to be well worth the trip. It's a chance for us to meet face to face with our fellow publishers, distributors and retailers.
Our busy production schedule, and the way the hobby games industry is set up, means we don't always get a chance to communicate as much as we would like with our partners and contemporaries. The GAMA trade show offers precisely that chance, in a dedicated space.
It's not an event we've spoken much about before here on the Cubicle 7 website, but this year we decided to change that with our report about what we got up to at this year's GAMA trade show. What happened in Vegas isn't staying in Vegas!
“Do you want to come with me? But if you do I should warn you: you’re going to see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past, aliens from the future, the day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won’t be quiet, it won’t be safe and it won’t be calm, but I tell you what it will be: a trip of a lifetime!” – The Ninth Doctor
10 years ago today, after a hiatus of nearly a decade away from our TV screens, Doctor Who returned with the episode Rose – and started the trip of a lifetime that we’re still embarked upon today! On today’s blog, we thought we’d take a look at the past ten years of Doctor Who, through the lens of our own games and supplements!
Yesterday we released two new Call of Cthulhu products for our Cthulhu Britannica line: The Journal of Neve Selcibuc and The Journal of Reginald Campbell Thompson. Both these books are not only standalone works of fiction, but they’re also designed as handouts for use with The Curse of Nineveh campaign. In today’s blog, we thought we’d take a more in-depth look at how all three books can be used together…
All pre-orders come with a complementary copy of the PDF versions. The PDFs are available now, the print copies are expected Summer 2015. Pre-order at our webstore, at your local games store, or pick up the PDF versions now from here and here.
