But then, one of my co-conspirators on the project revealed this: newly installed at the Cubicle 7 store for pre-order!
|The Laundry RPG--The Mythos Dossiers|
the PlatinumWarlock's first-ever real RPG writing gig!
The Mythos Dossiers is a really unique sort of book. While one could call it the "Monster Manual" of the Laundry-verse, it's...not quite that simple. Rather, all of the material in TMD is written up as a series of files sent to the head of the Laundry organization, compiled by various field agents. As such, instead of just a series of stats or a generic description, the files include first-person sightings, autopsy reports, interviews, scientific reports and more.
Each of the authors--there were about 8 of us, all told!--were in charge of a specific monster (called Primaries), and would submit secondary documents for others' primaries. Yours truly was made Primary for a classic Lovecraftian monster--the burrowing Cthonian! I also submitted secondaries on serpent-people, ghouls, and shoggoths. But, I managed to finish out my personal work early, and was even afforded the chance to work in an additional Primary: Flying Polyps!
While I can't divulge too much about the book itself, outside of what I already have, it'll definitely be exciting to see it hit print! Some of the ideas that made it in really take some of the Lovecraftian classics and turn them on their head. I'm especially proud of the Flying Polyps...the mad scientist Dr. Juurian Groeningen will make for a fantastic NPC adversary for an entire campaign of his own!
Have a nice weekend, cats and kittens! :D
