We're making great strides laying out The Lone Wolf Adventure Game and will have some extracts and art to share with you soon!
Learn more about The Lone Wolf Adventure Game here.
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:

Celebrated tabletop games publisher Cubicle 7 Entertainment announced today that it had left the Rebellion group of companies following a successful management buy-out led by Cubicle 7 CEO, Dominic McDowall.
"I’m excited to be taking Cubicle 7 into its next phase of development,” said McDowall, “Rebellion’s investment and mentoring has given us a great start, and now we’re ready to go it alone. I’d like to thank Chris and Jason Kingsley and everyone else at Rebellion for their invaluable support, advice and inspiration.”
Rebellion CEO and Creative Director Jason Kingsley said, “Getting involved with start-ups and small companies, nurturing them and helping them grow is enormously rewarding. It’s great to see Dominic and Cubicle 7 taking what they’ve learned as part of Rebellion and following their own path. I look forward to their future successes!”
Cubicle 7’s customers will be unaffected by this change, there is no impact to the company’s release schedule, licenses, Kickstarters, or existing customer pre-orders.
