New releases will always appear on our website before they become available in game stores or elsewhere. And some items are Chaosium.com exclusives! ...so save your SAN, embrace chaos - order direct from us! Sign up to our Ab Chaos newsletter via Facebook or on our front page and never miss out when new products are released.
  2. Not yet. Still waiting for the last Kickstarter surveys to come back...
  3. Good news for British and European RuneQuest fans - Chaosium now has copies of RuneQuest Classic edition available from our UK warehouse! Order here for local shipping: http://www.chaosium.com/runequest-classic-hardcover (NB we already have copies in our US and Australian warehouses.)
  4. In fact, I don't think think matter in Glorantha is made of atoms. If you could magnify small enough, maybe with the God Learner equivalent of an electron microscope, I reckon you'd find that reality is made up of tiny-weeny runes themselves.
  5. Greg Stafford's The Sea Cave in The Old School RQ Source Pack would be ideal!
  6. The Fan Super Builds web series made an evil Cthulhu fountain, and there's a quick flash of the Call of Cthulhu RPG starting at the 1min 12sec mark... https://www.go90.com/profiles/va_6a92c0971f2343d3a0800da6c91aa8fb
  7. Taking Actual Play to the next level - *animated* actual play for Call of Cthulhu:
  8. Call of Cthulhu: The Coloring Book is available now, exclusively from the Chaosium website - http://bit.ly/2jKuqck Here are some interior layouts, and the contents page:
  9. Thanks, we'll correct in the final version! It's 'Duckpoint' (one word).
  10. A new update has gone out to backers, noting that the Kickstarter surveys have gone out and soon backers will be receiving an invite to log into BackerKit, from which we'll be organizing fulfilment. We will also be using BackerKit to send out the PDF downloads of the Nomad Gods rulebook, the intro Dragon Pass map and the full Print and Play version of the game. More details here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/448333182/khan-of-khans-family-game/posts/1804577
  11. Here a link to the Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/golden-goblin-press/the-7th-edition-guide-to-cthulhu-invictus
  12. Cold = “compared to the Golden Age Sun”
  13. Call of Cthulhu - The Coloring Book is now available. 28 eldritch scenes of Lovecraftian Horror for you to color. Available to order now at Chaosium.com from our US, UK and Australian warehouses. http://www.chaosium.com/call-of-cthulhu-the-coloring-book
  14. Khan of Khans fan Andrew Watson has had a first pass at creating solo-play rules for Khan of Khans, here at Boardgame Geek: https://boardgamegeek.com/article/24947848#24947848
  15. $47,354 pledged, 473% funded, 1,345 backers - holy cow! Following the successful funding of the Khan of Khans Kickstarter we posted an update outlining to backers what happens next. You can see the update in full on the Kickstarter page, but these are the key points: Chaosium will put its efforts into the next phase of this Kickstarter - delivering all of the rewards as quickly and efficiently as we can. The main sequence of next steps will be as follows: Kickstarter is going to start processing backer payments by officially charging you via the payment method you set up when you pledged. It will take about 5-10 days to complete all backer payments. After payments have all been processed we will email you a survey from Kickstarter, asking you a few simple questions. It will mainly be centered around you providing us with your mailing address, and asking if you purchased any add-ons like the Nomad Gods PDF. The Khan of Khans forum on http://basicroleplaying.org will go live within 24 hours of this Kickstarter ending. While we will always provide updates via Kickstarter first, if you have any questions you are welcome to ask them in this new forum, along with exchanging raid strategies, Khan wisdom, and anything else related to the game. We at Chaosium post there frequently. We will then be sending each backer an email invitation to BackerKit, our chosen fulfillment partner. For those of you not familiar with BackerKit, it will help us with tracking and shipping you your rewards. Once you have been set up in BackerKit we will start sending out the Art Boards and Framed Prints to the backers that have them in their rewards package. We will distribute the Full Print-and-Play version of the game to you via BackerKit download. We will distribute the Nomad Gods PDF and the intro Dragon Pass map PDF to you via BackerKit download. We will be selling extra copies of the Khan of Khans game in BackerKit. We will set up t-shirt sales and similar related items in our Chaosium store on http://www.redbubble.com/people/chaosium We have already started working with the game manufacturer, and as we have production updates we will post them via Kickstarter updates. More soon! we wanted to get this update out sooner rather than later. As always, thank you to all the backers for supporting this project.
