…and it’s looking pretty useful. For those unfamiliar with the Laundry RPG, it’s the roleplaying game supplement based on Charles Stross’s Cthulhu Mythos/spy genre crossover series; think, well, “Cthulhu meets spies, and dump in a lot of math.” Mythos Dossiers The (Laundry RPG) is set up as a variety of documents, photos, drawings, and transcripts for a bunch of different Mythos monsters; the idea is to photocopy each section, toss them in a file folder, hand them to your players, and tell them to investigate. What makes this supplement useful is that while it’s obviously designed for the Laundry RPG you can still use the material for any Cthulhu-themed game where there’s a government awareness of the Mythos: for example, switch out “Black Chamber” for “MJ-12” and “the Laundry” for “PISCES” and you’ve got adventure hooks for Delta Green. Each individual section has an obvious, independent adventure hook; you can easily flesh out most of them into a full-fledged campaign.
All in all, I liked the supplement: my only problem with it is that Cubicle 7 (the game publishers) never got back to me on how to get my PDF copy downloaded. That’s a little problematical.
