  7. Chaosium founder Greg Stafford passed away in October last year. Greg's last public engagement was the 2018 ENnies Awards ceremony at Gen Con 51. He said he was immensely proud of the work Chaosium had done in recent years, particularly since 2015 when he returned as chair of the board and brought the Moon Design Publications team into the company. Greg recognized that everyone’s success in the gaming industry was down to the enthusiasm and support of the fans. We at the Chaosium recognize that countless tabletop roleplaying fans are fans (including us!) because of Greg Stafford and what he achieved. From the outset (to quote Greg's own words) Chaosium “was never content to imitate, but instead published games that were original in their style of play, content and design”. It is our aim to continue Greg's legacy: we are all conscious we are carrying on the tradition of innovation and creativity that Greg started when he founded The Chaosium in 1975. We appreciate the wonderful support and encouragement we get from Chaosium fans old and new around the world. #WeAreAllUs Chaosium is one of the choices for Fan's Favorite Publisher in the 2019 ENnie Awards. We hope you might give us consideration, and vote for the other categories Chaosium has been nominated in too, along with our licensees, partners and friends! http://www.ennie-awards.com/vote/2019
  8. Call of Cthulhu's new Australian supplement Terror Australis has already earned the distinction of being acquired by the National Library of Australia, as a work "of national significance relating to Australia and the Australian people". As Kotaku writes in their piece In His House At Australia's National Library, Dead Cthulhu Waits Dreaming, the NLA's acquisitions team reached out to us at Chaosium and we cheerfully obliged, considering it a great honour as well as a tremendous credit to all the talented authors and artists involved. And now Terror Australis has also scored two ENnie nominations - for Best Setting, and for Best Cover Art! Please support Chaosium and our licensees, partners and friends - ENnies voting is live now, and runs until 11.00PM EST on July 21st: http://www.ennie-awards.com/vote/2019
  9. The Vintage RPG Podcast tried out our ENnie-nominated game Miskatonic University: The Restricted Collection and loved it ("It's a great companion to 2016's Khan of Khans!"). They talk about that gameplay experience at the start of this episode. Then - after their next segment talking about some old book called The Dungeon Masters Guide - they interview Chaosium's MOB (starts 24:50) about MU, recent Cthulhu castles he's visited, the Miskatonic Repository, how Australia is Chaosium's Mythos testbed, and more!
  10. The Glorantha Sourcebook has been nominated for BEST SUPPLEMENT in the 2019 ENnie Awards. It is an essential resource for the world of Glorantha, the world of mythology, gods, and heroes that inspired roleplaying games, board games, computer games, comics, fiction, and more...

  15. Our first creative collaboration with German board game design genius Reiner Knizia scored us two Gold ENnies in 2018, for Khan of Khans (Best RPG-Related Product and Best Family Game). And Reiner's done it again, with his new Chaosium game Miskatonic University: The Restricted Collection getting a 2019 nomination for Best RPG-Related Product. Both Khan of Khans and Miskatonic University feature the brilliant graphic design work of multi-award winning graphic designer Ian O'Toole.
