The Laundry is a secret branch of the British Civil Service, dedicated to protecting the United Kingdom against Horrors from Beyond. In your time in the Laundry, you've seen your share of terrible, frightening documents: grimoires bound in human skin, soul-eating computer code, ISO9001 compliance assessments. None, though, are as terrifying as the thing sitting on your desk.

It's a plane ticket. The Laundry's budgets are more tightly bound than a summoned shoggoth. If they're paying for your flights, then something hellish is about to happen overseas, and you're in the firing line.

Unconventional Diplomacy features 6 sanity-challenging scenarios:

THE SCRAMBLE FOR BURANDA – Three British aid workers vanish in Africa, right on the border of the isolationist nation of Buranda. Getting them home is your secondary objective. The primary mission is to clear up a very old loose end and recover the fabled Dagger of the Bloody Tongue – and avoid an international incident while doing so.

CASE ARSON SPARKLEPONY – Something weird is about to happen at the Burning Man festival, according to the precognitives over at Predictive Branch. That means, one, Predictive Branch is as much use as a chocolate heat sink on an over-clocked summoning grid, and two, it's time for a jaunt to the United States. Just try to stay out of the Black Chamber's unblinking gaze.

LEGACY CODE – In old institutions like the Laundry, you don't just get pilloried for your own mistakes. The errors and failures of all those who have gone before land on your desk. Some eldritch entity just filed the mother of all bug reports. Time for some tech support with extreme prejudice.

POCKET FULL OF PRIAPUS – One of your co-workers ran into a spot of bother in France, and is currently sitting in a jail cell in Paris. For various reasons, this needs to be kept quiet and under the radar of our European Partners. Could you just pop over, clear his name and close his case for him, there's a good chap?

DARKNESS BEYOND OUR WORLD – Jeremy Walshe works for the Laundry. Jeremy Walshe was supposed to fly home from Washington today. He didn't get on the plane, and he's got a head full of secrets that need to be secured. Fly out, find him, and get him back to the UK before anything eats his brain. What can possibly go wrong?

YE LIVELIEST AWFULNESS – Earlier this afternoon, the police helped eject a troublemaking nuisance from the US embassy in London. Crazy cranks are ten a penny these days, but three things about this guy stand out. First, he was raving about gods and monsters. Second, he vanished soon after being kicked out. And third, he said his name was Howard Philips Lovecraft…

    If your Laundry officers have been sitting around for a while getting complacent in their knowledge of what's going on, these six adventures should light a fuse under them! Each is well considered, a delightful balance between arcane manipulations and [...]

    Scanned image
    These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

    For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

    For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
    Original electronic format
    These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
