In the programme given away at Dragonmeet back in December was a brand-new asset for use with The Laundry RPG – Casefile ORNERY OCTAL – and it seemed to go down really well with fans. Well, it turns out that there are more Laundry fans than Dragonmeet attendees, so by popular demand we’re giving it away here to download for free.

This is but one of the assets found in the forthcoming Targets of Acquisition, a PDF-only supplement that features files on some of The Laundry’s most coveted occult artefacts, as well as plot hooks and advice for using them in your games.

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.

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:

"It takes the nihilistic horror of the Cthulhu mythos and makes it into a joke, just so that it can then turn it back around into a nihilistic horror setting once more. God spare England, because Cthulhu won’t."
- rpg.net review
"If you happen to be a fan of Charles Stross’ “Laundry Files” who games, then The Laundry is going to be near perfect for you. If you are a fan of Lovecraftian investigative horror, then The Laundry presents another approach to the genre, one that is more focused, much drier in feel, and with a very much drier wit. Lastly, this is the only RPG of Lovecraftian investigative horror that bothers to discuss a pension plan, so you know The Laundry makes sense."
- Reviews from R'lyeh
"The Laundry is probably the best horror setting I've ever seen. Funny, quirky, and totally dark, there's nothing in the Laundry that's not to like."
- drivethrurpg review

Unconventional Diplomacy Cover trade dressing 700

We’ve talked quite a bit about the six new scenarios in the latest Laundry supplement, Unconventional Diplomacy (we’ve even put one up for free download here), but one thing we’ve not mentioned are the six shorter adventure seeds that line developer and author Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan wrote for the appendix of the book, titled Diplomatic Flashpoints.

As Gareth explains:

The appendix gives briefings on several potential flashpoints where the Laundry’s Unconventional Diplomacy section might send the player characters. In each case, the mission is not to thwart a Mythos threat, but to keep the Mythos threat content and compliant so it signs on the dotted line. (At least, that’s the starting point: if a cosmic horror won’t come to the negotiating pentacle in good faith, then the PCs may need to apply the big stick end of diplomacy and banish the horror instead.)"

These briefings are all formatted like an in-world briefing document, so they can all be handed directly to the players as handouts to kick off a new adventure. We’ve put the first of these, FISHING BOAT BLUE, up for free.

This flashpoint concerns the upcoming Scottish referendum for independence and, obviously taken with the idea, Gareth’s written an extra scenario synopsis concerning none other than Nessie herself over on our forums.
