    These are all still active projects. Galatians 6:9

    Time for my semi-annual request for a Credo! update ... any movement towards a release/Kickstarter/anything? Rick Meints stated above, almost two years ago, it was finished and ready for printing. It must still be sitting on a shelf somewhere gathering dust. What a shame.

    Without trying to sound weird, frustrated or angry, the last few replies have sort of derailed this thread. The Call of Cthulhu Classic Kickstarter is about reprinting material from the 1980s. That material is only available at collector prices, often costing hundreds of $$$. This reprint project is separate from any efforts being made by the current 7th edition team and the books they produce. This isn't slowing down or stopping any of their ongoing efforts. We've had lots of requests from people who would love to get a early retro edition boxed set of CoC. If Classic reprints aren't your thing, that's fine too. 

    If you want to discuss how you would like to update Shadows of Yog-Sothoth, please start your own thread. NOTE: SoYS is being worked on for 7th edition. Our starting point for that was the 2004 version, not the 1982 version.


    Hi Rick ... I don't think I've seen this addressed yet in any of the announcements or in this forum thread, so I was wondering ... will all the books in the CoC Classic reprint material in the Kickstarter be re-typeset/laidout in the same fashion as all of the wonderful Runequest Classic material you released? I love what you guys did with the Runequest Classic material and would love to see the same approach with this CoC Classic stuff. Thanks & Cheers!

  3. Hey Chaosium Intelligentsia! ... Time for my, what now seems to be, annual request for a Credo! update. Last post from MOB, a year ago, said 'Red: Thread of Fate' then Credo (KS?) ... 'R:ToF' has been out awhile ... so, Credo! soon? ... Rick M. stated it was ready for the printer a year and a quarter ago:

    The game is finished and ready for printing.

    Any news/update will be appreciated ... Thanks gang!


    p.s. Please don't let the update be that it's been cancelled .... extreme disappointment will follow if so :(

    I've not made a firm decision as yet, but I imagine if people like the way I have done it in in Vol 2, with more focus on the narrative and less on the stats (or those stats that are useful, like POW etc.), then future Rulebook editions will probably follow the same or a similar format.

    I like the new way the Greater Mythos deities/entities are presented in the new MM Vol.II, I think you should stick with it ... (interestingly, I just finished watching one of the "Sandy of Cthulhu" YouTube webisodes ... here ...

     and it sounds like the way you've presented the Greater Mythos beings is Sandy's preferred way as well (around 9:43) ... go figure) ... Though now there are statistical and presentation differences between the Greater beings as presented in the MM Vol.II and the Core Rulebook, and I was wondering if future printings of the Core Rulebook would be changed to adopt the presentation as in the MM Vol.II. 

  5. Thanks so much Chaosium! ... Have been slowly digesting the two volumes of the new 'Malleus Monstrorum', and I'm very happy with what I'm seeing, cannot wait to have these physically in my hands, they'll be gorgeous ... I like the route Chaosium went with the updating/presentation of the "stat blocks" for the Greater Mythos creatures/deities and such in Vol. II., but it begs the question ... Will the entries for the Greater Mythos entities presented in the Keepers Core book be updated to the same presentation as 'Malleus Monstrorum's' in future printings, or will the traditional "stat block" presentation remain? It would be nice if there was continuity among the books.

  6. Hey there good Chaosium folks ... Rick last posted in August that the new Credo was finished and ready for printing ... Are you any further in the process now that it's mid-October? Champing at the bit for this ... Also, are you still going to Kickstart it?



  7. Hi all ... A buddy and me are contemplating running Pagan Publishing's 'Grace Under Pressure' at Gary Con XII next March, and I was hoping to get some feedback from members of the community that may have ran this at a Con before. Looking for suggestions, pitfalls, and general advice for doing this. I'm planning on running it with 7th Edition, and we've already updated all the pre-gen PC's and have made notes on the various system related aspects of the scenario to bring it up to 7th Edition parameters. 

    As an aside ... When I attended Gary Con last year, I noticed there were several Official CoC events that took place in private suites as opposed to the general gaming area in the Forum area (those of you that have attended GC should know what I referring to) ... I was wondering if anyone knows how those private suite games were able to reserve those suites for running the games? It would greatly enhance the experience if I were able to have such a space to run GuP, as opposed to a large, loud, brightly lit area such as the forum.


  8. I seem to recall Rick Meints mentioning at some point that Credo was slated for a reboot. Any word/news on this oh Chaosium intelligentsia? One of my favorite Chaosium games ever ... heck, one of my favorite card/boardgames ever.

  9. Thanks for clearing that up for me Folks! ... Perhaps when Rick and Co. re-laid out the supplements for inclusion in the B&B book they could have added an editorial note stating that "Yes!, there should be tables here, but we have not included them due to redundancy". Or, better yet, simply removed the instructional text that alluded to the tables from the original 'Plunder' book. Oh well. Sorry for the confusion .. and Thanks.

  10. Thanks for the reply. But ... it looks like the table for Treasure Factors in the RQII rulebook is a straight %roll table, whereas the procedure described in the Intro to the 'Plunder' section of the B&B book mentions rolling d8's and cross-referencing on different tables. I do not have a copy of the original 'Plunder' supplement, but I seem to recall (from looking through that book ages ago) that the first half of the book were these tables I'm looking for, and are described in the B&B 'Plunder' section introduction. These tables seem to have not been included in the reprint. 

  11. Looking through the 'Borderlands & Beyond' compilation and reading the Introduction to the 'Plunder' section, there is mention of and directions for generating random treasure based on Treasure Factors. That section mentions generating this treasure on Treasure Factor tables. Where are these tables? Sorry if this is a newb question, but I've scoured the book and can cannot find the tables. Thanks for any insight.
