  1. Here's list of everything they published: Oriflam (RQ3 and wargames) 1987 RuneQuest boxed set 1 1987 Les Dieux de Glorantha 2 1988 Genertela 3 1991 Les Secrets Oublies 4 1992 Les Guerriers du Soleil 5 1995 La Voie du Sabre 6 1993 Dorastor 7 1997 Trolls 1989 Les Monts Arc en Ciel (Rainbow Mounds) 1988 Le Maitre des Runes 1994 Sous le Signe du Chaos 1989 Les Ruines Hantees 1991 RuneQuest Rules Hardcover 1991 GM Screen, 2nd Edition 1993 Le Roi de Sartar 1993 La Guerre des Heroes 1994 Les Dieux Nomades Oriflam also published 27 issues of Tatou magazine from 1988-1996, most of which contained RQ3/Gloranthan information.
  2. Monsters! Monsters! is a nice little game that came out in 1976. It's a set of rules for creating monsters and playing them as they try to stop adventurers from plundering their lairs and dungeons. It's not like All the Worlds Monsters or the Monster Manual. It doesn't have a bestiary, nor is it a compendium of monster stats. It's also only 40 pages in length.
  3. I would think that they hope their characters will get some sort of skill increase or bonus from it. That's fine, in abstract, but I would ask them a simple question: What specific benefit will your character get from having read everything HP Lovecraft wrote? If they say they expect their Mythos Skill to improve, I wouldn't necessarily have a problem with that. After all, their Max SAN takes a hit from that. If they expect that you will just tell them more stuff for no extra effort, then that's a different matter. Beyond the Mythos skill there are very few mechanic/rule advantages to knowing more about the mythos. There's no "identify mythos monster" skill, or "avoid mythos machinations" skill.
  4. You can also message me on Kickstarter. Just let me know what backer level and what email to send the invite to. pr-at-chaosium-dot-com
  5. We hope to have it for sale on our website within a month.
  6. The first edition of the screen didn't actually have it. I grabbed the wrong screen shot for the Kickstarter example, which used the 1988 screen by mistake.
  7. Mike Mason has begun figuring out and planning those sorts of things. He was involved with a number of these titles back in the day. It's still early days on where we go from here. The first step was purchasing the IP. As we have more information we will announce it.
  8. Nick's answer is correct, and I want to emphasize one detail: If the game store participates in Bits&Mortar they will be sending you the PDF. Please don't email Dustin and try to show him a receipt from a game store in the hopes that Chaosium will be supplying you with a PDF. That's not how it works. We only provide the PDF when you buy directly from us on chaosium.com We get regular requests for free PDFs from people who buy from Amazon, a local store, or even when they bought a used copy of the game, That's not what we are offering when it comes to complimentary PDFs.
  9. I'll politely point out that if I had more specific information that I wanted to provide, I would have given that information. Please do not ask us "when will this be specifically available" questions as a response to the information we have given.
  10. The Red Book of Magic was printed in Poland, and the Starter set was printed in China. Getting each of those two products into our other global warehouses poses different challenges, and different delays. What happens to one doesn't necessarily apply to the other. In the end, we will start selling each product as soon as we feel we are able.
  11. The US shipment is on a cargo container ship called COSCO SPAIN: https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:689390/mmsi:477776200/imo:9516442/vessel:COSCO_SPAIN ETA to Long Beach port is August 24th. After it gets unloaded and clears customs it gets sent to Minnesota, which takes a week or so.
  12. Chaosium announced the Stormbringer book "Castle of Eyes" in that same blue newsletter... It was supposed to be CHA2116 and retail for $18.95. Expected September - Castle of Eyes is a grandiose, epic campaign filled with visions of splendor and horror. After a millennium of fighting a catastrophic war, the ruling family of the castle suffers from decay and an intense fear of strangers from the outside world. Desperation and starvation threatens the people, and a brewing battle between competing claimants to the throne threatens to destroy all. The adventurers are caught in between, and are forced to assert themselves, becoming central figures in the struggle to control the throne.
  13. Unfortunately, we just don't know. Steve was the primary person handling the GoFundMe, so who even has access now is unknown.
