Unconventional Diplomacy Cover trade dressing 700

The Laundry is a secret branch of the British Civil Service, dedicated to protecting the United Kingdom against Horrors from Beyond. In your time in the Laundry, you've seen your share of terrible, frightening documents - grimoires bound in human skin, soul-eating computer code, ISO9001 compliance assessments. None, though, are as terrifying as the thing sitting on your desk.

It's a plane ticket. The Laundry's budgets are more tightly bound than a summoned shoggoth. If they're paying for your flights, then something hellish is about to happen overseas, and you're in the firing line.

Enjoy the complementary peanuts as you hurtle towards six potential apocalypses. This collection of scenarios for the Laundry Files opens up new and unimaginable vistas of cosmic/comic horror.

Unconventional Diplomacy for The Laundry RPG written by WJ McGuffin, Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan, Paul L Matthews, Brian Nisbet, Jack Graham, and with cover art by Malcolm McClinton: Coming Soon...

cultists-under-the-bed-cover600
Available now in PDF from RPGNow - Cultists Under the Bed for The Laundry.

Our reality is ruled by monstrous gods, invisible horrors that hunger to consume us. Some deluded bastards worship these gods, trading obeisance for power or magic or the privilege of getting eaten last when the world ends. Cults are like cockroaches, breeding in the shadows, gnawing at the walls of society, fearful of the light… and bloody hard to kill.

This supplement for the Laundry Files roleplaying game delves into the murky realm of the cultist and the conspirator, detailing eight of the nastiest, most tenacious foes of the Laundry and dozens of minor ones.

Cultists Under the Bed is a 128 page black and white PDF by Andy Klosky, WJ MacGuffin, Paul L Mathews, Brian Nisbet, Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan, and John Snead, featuring art by Malcolm McClinton and Scott Purdy.

The Laundry Files Roleplatying Game is based on the best-selling 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.

God Game Black is the newest supplement for The Laundry RPG, based on the Laundry Files novels by Charles Stross, and is available for pre-order now.

The game’s played in the corridors of power in Westminister and Washington. It’s played in alleyways in Bangkok and desolate hillsides in Afghanistan. It’s played in the skies of distant alien worlds, where terrible things slumber behind the wall of pain. The game’s played with bullets and with secrets, and they’re both equally deadly.

Our opponents in this game are cultists and monsters. Some of them are deluded pawns. Others know what they’ll unleash with their next move. If we lose the game, we lose everything.
