Creating an alternate laundry career system:

I'm in the middle of recreating my mission-system, basing it more on status than I've done in the past. This means that players will move through scenarios and their "level" according to the teams combined status. The easiest way to build this was to rethink how a laundry career Works. 1: Being outs...

Re: Future system for Cthulhu ranges?

You could also exploit the fact that the laundry does have portals to other dimensions, which would allow you to create an interdimensional section that explores other Worlds, whose creatures sometimes come to earth. There would be no hindrance in creating lovecraftian beings by letting them be extr...

Re: When and what is the next laundry suplement ?

I was thinking more in the line of just posting stuff here :) There are laundry readers out there, reading our posts, but there's too little forum activity from other dedicated game-masters in general. This may change over time because stross is still building up on the universe. I also believe that...

Re: Creating a custom campaign, looking for input & possible pitfalls

Not totally :D they can lose their man on the inside, which will suddenly turn them into a rogue and illegal Group that will get hunted Down and either get geased or put into some high security cultist prison... That rarely happens to externals. If the players does a good job, they could become exte...

Re: Creating a custom campaign, looking for input & possible pitfalls

The original story on delta green is that it's a lot of splintercells that revolted to the governments way of doing Things. It is supported by freelancers and friendlies within the larger system. Why not do exactly the same with your Group. Make it into small Groups that does not fully support all t...

Re: Now live on Kickstarter: Unspeakable Sigil and Sign

If you cannot see the players in the roles as cultists, you will miss out on a lot. I've been running a hybrid where players sooner or later have to infiltrate a cult and gets licence to do evil stuff so they fit in with the other cultists. Players can enjoy the internal intrigues of a doomsday cult...

Re: When and what is the next laundry suplement ?

It's what I have been doing for a while back :D Since my players and I have reverted to ordinary D&D due to a new friend I have had neglegted the laundry a bit, but since the overall feel of the game has some appeal I will return to it eventually, so I might go ahead and make some big scenario piece...

Re: When and what is the next laundry suplement ?

Have anyone in your organisation been set to scour all of stross's material for just about anything printable that could be put into use in new releases? I usually read fantasy material with a notebook at my side, and you will be surprised how many things would actually be extracted from even a sing...

Re: Laundry Wiki

I have had some assassination scenarios where the players are set up to assassinate some of the great old ones or outer gods, with a huge budget and full access to the stats of the monster, and some of these scenarios were actually some of the best I've had with the players. They know their own skil...
