Back Cover Text

As Above, So Below

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. Even though you're going up against unknowable horrors, you don't have the luxury of fear, because lives are on the line here.

An emergency senior committee meeting in an anonymous briefing room in Whitehall. The shuffle of papers, low murmur of voices. The minister wants a proposal on his desk by 9. Army liaison confirms they have the assets in place. Not that they know what's really at stake. They're not cleared for what you know, but lives are on the line here.

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 your 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 b 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.
