The Laundry

The Letter

You had a train ticket delivered to your door for a one-way trip to Great Yarmouth for Friday on the 9th September accompanied by the following letter :-

“Dear Sir, Madam, Other,

Welcome to the Laundry, thank you for your co-operation in joining this organisation. As you have signed The Official Secrets Act Section III in your own ink we are delighted to inform you that your selection of field operative has been successful.

Please find enclosed a train ticket to Gt. Yarmouth (with changing trains in Norwich) of which we would like for you to attend. From there you will be escorted to our Training Facility in Dunwich Village. Please note that attendance is mandatory.
This training will begin your introduction and orientation to the Laundry and also start your Field Operatives training Course which will permit you for Active Field Duty.

During this orientation, you will also be assigned your job role within the Laundry during this time as has already briefly been discussed with you when you signed the Official Secrets Act Section III.

Please bring with you a form of photographic identification such as a passport, Drivers Licence, (old) Works Identification, Student ID or other. If you do not have photographic ID, please could you obtain four separate photographs, each from different angles, each of you wearing different clothes with you instead.
Additionally, please bring enough comfortable casual clothes suitable for the coast at this time of year and some spending money for evening festivities. Please note that food and board will be provided as will any training implements you may require.

On behalf of the Laundry Services, HR would like to personally thank you by way of this letter for giving them a sample of your Blood, Tears, Skin, Hair, Spinal Fluid, Urine and Stool so that your identification can be verified if ever the need arises.


The trip to Gt Yarmouth was a uneventful one, it rained as typically it does in September and after leaving any sign of longitudinal peaks for the passed 30 minutes, you arrive at Gt Yarmouth Station.

Exiting the Train, a large portly gentleman in a navy fisherman’s coat with a bald head and large bulbous eyes is holding out a sign saying “Capital Laundry Services” and you are then directed to a mini-coach where there are a collection of different people from all walks of life on board. The ‘Fisherman’ guides on other people and eventually gets on the coach himself and starts driving.

After about an hours journey (it’s now about 4pm), the driver pulls into a small cavern where there is a stone harbour with a two tier boat just big enough to hold a standard class of children. “Only way to Dunwich is by Sea” comes the driver as everyone is led onto the boat.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
