5Dec/17Off

Following our announcement that our Call of Cthulhu license is set to expire on January the 1st 2018, we are throwing a grand everything-must-go sale on all our Cthulhu lines! It begins today with physical copies, so squirm over to our store right now and ensnare a bargain in your slavering mandibles.

Here's the science part:
• On January 1st 2018 we will take all of our current, licensed Call of Cthulhu products off sale permanently. They will not be sold by Cubicle 7 after that date.

• Before 1st January we’re reducing the price on almost all of our Call of Cthulhu licensed game titles. These are: World War Cthulhu: Cold War, World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour, The Laundry, and Cthulhu Britannica.

• You may still see some of these fine games in your local game store for a month or two, but there will be no restocks available. As they sell out they will not be replenished.

• These games will not be reprinted or republished by Cubicle 7 in their current form using the Call of Cthulhu rules.

• Currently, our plan is to reboot these lines with a new system or systems. It is a little too early in that process to confirm any more details with regard to the potential for backwards compatibility. We're exploring a lot of exciting options right now, and we will keep you posted on our website, newsletter and social media.

• Because some of these titles are newly released, and pre-orders have been only open a short time, we will not be discounting those titles out of respect for our customers who pre-ordered or Kickstarted those titles. A huge thank you to those customers – we really appreciate your support.

We hope you have enjoyed our Call of Cthulhu settings and supplements. We certainly had a great time working on them.

Cubicle 7’s Call of Cthulhu license expires at the end of the year and by mutual agreement with Chaosium it is not going to be renewed. There are no hard feelings on either side, and we are still on great terms - these things happen. Call of Cthulhu is Chaosium’s baby and we wish them all the best.

We’ve enjoyed working with Call of Cthulhu and Chaosium, but we’re also looking forward to the challenge of designing our own game systems for Cthulhu Britannica, World War Cthulhu and The Laundry. Putting together games that really showcase the themes of their setting is what we do best, after all! Keep an eye on the newsletter for more information in due course.

Stay tuned - we'll be holding a sale on our Call of Cthulhu titles in December!

20Jan/16Off

Covert insertion, a HALO drop into enemy territory. There are some things the spooks can’t handle, some problems that can only be resolved through superior firepower.

An emergency committee meeting in an anonymous briefing room. The shuffle of papers, the murmur of voices. The minister wants a proposal on his desk by 9, but no one knows what’s really at stake.

As Above, So Below – the latest supplement for The Laundry Roleplaying Game, the game where you play civil servants tasked with protecting the United Kingdom from the Mythos – is on sale from today in US gaming stores, on our webstore and in PDF format from DriveThruRPG. As Above, So Below is two supplements in one, covering both gaming the machinations of the politicians in Mahogany Row, and playing the Special Forces operatives tasked with carrying out their orders.

About As Above, So Below

When the going gets tough, the Laundry calls in the professionals. This sourcebook gives rules and guidelines on incorporating special forces missions into your games of The Laundry Roleplaying Game. The spies have done their grubby work – now it’s time for the SAS to drop in and put down the alien horrors with courage and high explosives. Visit alien dimensions and the most remote, unfriendly regions of our own world, meet interesting locals, and kill them before they kill you.

The decisions that matter aren’t made in the field – they're made in conference calls, in committee meetings. This sourcebook add a political dimension to your games of The Laundry Roleplaying Game, letting the players climb the ladder of promotion and take charge. Management isn't always a bad thing – it's power by another name, and bargains with ministers and Auditors work just like bindings with eldritch entities. Sorcery is the continuation of politics by other means.

Two sourcebooks in one, exploring two very different facets of the Laundry. The military, and the political. The sharp end, and the hand that guides. As above, so below.

This 128-page, black and white, softcover supplement contains:

  • Background on Special Forces organisations.
  • Rules for creating Special Forces characters.
  • Advice for running Special Forces scenarios, including Occult Engagement Protocols.
  • Advice for running Political Games, including rules for promotion, mentors and committee meetings.
  • A new mini-game for playing high-level meetings.
  • Three new scenarios, using the new play-styles introduced in the book.

As Above, So Below is written by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan, Martin Dougherty, Jason Keeley, WJ MacGuffin, cover by Malcolm McClinton and illustrated by Jon Hodgson and Scott Purdy.

You can buy As Above, So Below at your local games store now. Stores participating in the Bits and Mortar scheme also come with a complementary PDF. As Above, So Below is also available to order from our webstore too. All orders come with a complementary PDF copy.

You can also buy As Above, So Below now at Drivethru RPG.

 

About the Laundry RPG

Laundryline

The Laundry Roleplaying Game is based on the 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.

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.
