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.
March was a big month for The Laundry Roleplaying Game, in which you take on the role of secret government agents who fight Cthulhu Mythos horrors and bureaucratic supervisors using computational magic programs installed on their Necronomiphones. We had a massively successful Bundle of Holding, which saw over a thousand new recruits join up to help face down CASE NIGHTMARE GREEN, as well as a post about an orc that seemed to go viral. And, we revealed the cover to the forthcoming new supplement, AS ABOVE, SO BELOW, which concerns the special forces and the bureaucrats who send them on missions.
Cthulhu Britannica was also blessed with not one, but three new releases too, as we launched our new Call of Cthulhu 7th edition campaign, The Curse of Nineveh, as well as a pair of fantastic, deluxe handouts, The Journal of Reginald Campbell Thompson and The Journal of Neve Selcibuc. These three books work especially well as a set, as we discussed here. And that’s not all that’s in the works for Cthulhu Britannica either – we teased a little of our Cards from the Smoke gaming accessory, and the cross-over supplement, World War Cthulhu: London, for playing games of Call of Cthulhu during the Blitz is just around the corner.
On the subject of Call of Cthulhu, we’ve been teasing information for our next Kickstarter recently too, World War Cthulhu: The Cold War. This is a Call of Cthulhu setting full of thrilling espionage, tense horror and sudden betrayal set at the height of the Cold War, and you can find out more about it here – and back it on Kickstarter soon.
As well as celebrating 10 years of Doctor Who being back on our TV screens, in a timely turn of events we also released The Ninth Doctor Sourcebook too, the latest in our series of Doctor sourcebooks. The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook is also due in stores this week too, bringing you not only details of the Eighth Doctor’s televised adventures but also a brand-new campaign.
Finally, the team were in Las Vegas recently for the GAMA Trade Show, where we got to meet our fellow publishers, distributors and retailers face to face, and divulge some of our plans for the next year. Jon gave us his thoughts about the show here.
Phew! What a busy few weeks it’s been! Just wait until you see what we've got planned for the next few months…
