  1. COVID-19 Shipping and Fulfilment Update - Jan 15, 2021 Posted by Michael O'Brien on 15th Jan 2021 We hope that you, your family, and your friends continue to be in good health. Our five fulfilment warehouses (USA, UK, AUS, EU, CAN) are all back and operating normally after the holiday break. The Covid-19 situation continues to cause some delays to postage times, but if you want to check the status of your order, you can always drop Dustin a line: dustin@chaosium.com. And remember, while you're waiting for your physical shipment from Chaosium.com, you have the PDF already
  2. In 'Out of the Suitcase #4', Rick looks at Chaosium catalogs going back to 1975 and what wonderful information they contain about products that did (and didn't) happen... https://www.chaosium.com/blogout-of-the-suitcase-4-cataloging-a-bit-of-chaosium-history
  3. In 'Out of the Suitcase #3', Rick discusses the somewhat fruitless scholarly pursuit by certain gaming historians to try to understand and catalog the specific color of the dice included in our early boxed sets: https://www.chaosium.com/blogout-of-the-suitcase-3-sometimes-things-are-less-dicey-than-they-seem
  4. While the final product is the perfect addition to any RuneQuest player’s library, The Red Book of Magic had a much more humble beginning. Brian sat down with Jason —the Creative Director of RuneQuest—and Jaye —Art Director for The Red Book of Magic—to chat about how this epic, arcane tome came into being: https://www.chaosium.com/blogthe-red-book-of-magic-from-concept-to-page
  5. As noted in this shipping and fulfilment update (Dec 22), shipping from our UK warehouse to addresses outside the UK is currently unavailable due to current disruptions to international freight movements in and out of the UK. No, only products from the UK warehouse. If the product you're after is only in stock the UK warehouse (like some of the stuff we're running out in the clearance sale) unfortunately for the time being this means you won't be able to order it if you live outside the UK. You can order products available from our other warehouses (but will have to pay for inter
  6. The monsters of the Cthulhu Mythos at your fingertips! Out now, the Malleus Monstrorum Keeper Deck. A Plethora Of Mythos Fiends are presented here on their own individual cards, with all relevant game information on one side, and evocative artwork on the other. Use the cards for quick-reference during your games, and as a handy image to show your players exactly what their investigators are facing! Like the other Call of Cthulhu Keeper Decks, this deck provides new layers to plots, enhance the story, and provide quick access to an array of fiendish foes. Available now from
  7. We are updating the MR guidelines with more guidance on this.
  8. We have kept our customers informed with updates (e.g. here) but unfortunately inconsistent and delayed shipping times in the Covid era are out of our control. We appreciate people being patient and also buying direct. That has helped the company in these trying times. If you don't have a legit PDF you don't get the discount coupon for the physical book. Our experience is "less scrupulous persons" don't feel the need to wait months before getting their hands on pirated copies of our stuff. But such people probably weren't going to buy a legitimate copy from us anyway, so that's not a f
  9. And here is the collectors' leatherette version of the Malleus Monstrorum Slipcase Set. This special edition of our Cthulhu Mythos Bestiary is a Chaosium.com exclusive - it won't be available elsewhere! Order now from our US, EU, and Australian warehouses, UK and Canada to follow.
  10. By 1453 the House of Osman, the founding dynasty of the Ottomans, had precisely two remaining members left. This despite previous generations of Osmans having multiple wives and concubines bearing children. One of them was Mehmet II, the soon-to-be Conquering Sultan, and the other was his distant cousin, Prince Orhan, who lived in comfortable detention in Constantinople (the Ottomans paid the Romans an annual subsidy to keep Orhan safely out of the way). But when Mehmet took Constantinople in May 1453, he took off Orhan's head. That left him the sole surviving member of the House of Osman.
  11. No, for parquetry. At least there are some highly trained dwarves who practice this esteemed art, as long as they have the right diet (lots of roughage).
  12. And these aren't just superior Roman-style roads, magic was part of their creation. Lacking rivers and sea ports, the Sartar dynasty created these wondrous highways specifically to facilitate trade and commerce, and travelling along these roads is preternaturally easy. It's like zipping along a modern purpose-built tollway (and yeah, there are tolls) instead of laboriously wending your way from one place to another on the tortuous back roads (yeah, where there are trolls, and worse). The moment your caravan leaves a Royal Road - even to an otherwise well-constructed road - the difference is pa
  13. Unlike the (much, much longer) RW Silk Road though, the routes through Dragon Pass can utilise Sartar's beautifully-engineered Royal Roads which greatly facilitate the movement of goods.
