  1. In partnership with DriveThruRPG Chaosium is launching a new way for Call of Cthulhu creators to write and share their original material, and make money too. Starting soon! More details here: https://www.chaosium.com/blog/introducing-the-miskatonic-repository
  2. To avoid the fine tradition of further speculation in the face of an absence of facts, here's a different spin on the issue: what would you, the lowly customer, want to see between the covers of BRP Essentials?
  3. Going by the title and cover (which I couldn't find a full version of or I'd attach it), it looks like 'Alone Against the Wendigo' finally getting update to Seventh Edition as 'Alone Against the Frost' and is next on the release docket. I'm glad to hear that we will now have all three of Chaosium's published Solitaire adventures in Seventh. https://rollingboxcars.com/2019/09/13/editors-desk-chaosium-announces-the-impending-release-of-alone-against-the-frost/
  4. I hope it's okay that I put this up. I'm a writer, and I plan to put the adventure scenarios I create on itch.io, as a pay-what-you-want scenario modules. I'm writing mostly Call of Cthulhu scenarios right now, and I'm interested in knowing how much content I can pull from Chaosium books. Am I legally allowed to put up my writing as pay-what-you-want modules if I take some of the described cults in Pulp Cthulhu, or the monsters in S. Petersen's Field Guide to Lovecraftian Horrors? In putting this up, I hope to accomplish two things. 1. Get answers to my questions. 2. Allow futur
  5. Chaosium is contributing to Women in Tabletop Gaming Month. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting interviews with women creators who have worked with Chaosium in the past, continue to work with us now, and those who are just joining the Chaosium family. We’ve managed to gather together a fascinating group of women from all facets of the gaming industry (from writers and artists to publishers and graphic designers), all of whom have helped build Chaosium’s various gaming worlds over the years. Lynne Hardy, our assistant Call of Cthulhu line editor who compiled the interviews says, "I hop
  6. The groundbreaking and revolutionary early history of our company, as recounted by Geek and Sundry's Benjamin Riggs, a wonderful read! (Also tells the strange-but-true story of how our illustrious founder Greg Stafford came to own the first-sold copy of Dungeons & Dragons, literally straight off Gary Gygax's printer!) https://geekandsundry.com/tarot-cards-told-him-to-start-a-game-company-the-dawn-of-chaosium/
  7. So... I have long presumed that Cthulhu profits are the core of the Chaosium business; that -- beloved though they are -- Runequest & Glorantha (and all the other lines, including card-games, etc) are simply too small to keep Chaosium going... at least, not at the scale they are going. There is the Cult of Chaos (organized play aka "demo monkey" program), which AFAIK nominally allows RQ/HQ/Glorantha content, but ... well, there's not much THERE there, for non-CoC stuff. I understand that Chaosium INTENDS to have ths stuff in place... eventually... I recently looked at the
  8. A quick note from Susan, our board games line editor: Exciting news—our next board game is close! Last year, after some 25 years away, Chaosium got back into boardgames. This first foray brought together German board game wizard Reiner Knizia and "the Grand Shaman of Games" himself Greg Stafford, for the family game Khan of Khans set in the mythic world of Glorantha. Very soon we'll be back with a Kickstarter for our first Lovecraftian board game since 1987! I'm excited to be working with Reiner again, exploring the world of horror in a fast-paced, fun-filled, push-your-luck
  9. Fantasy Flight Game's Masks of Nyarlathotep Expansion for Eldritch Horror is now out in general release! And there's a flyer in the box about the forthcoming new edition of Masks for Call of Cthulhu, with a link to this landing page: https://www.chaosium.com/masks. When Chaosium's new edition of Masks is released, it will feature a similar shout-out to the FFG board game. This is all part of a closer collaboration between Chaosium and Fantasy Flight Games.
  10. 2017 - Chaosium's Year in Review Posted by Michael O'Brien on January 01, 2018 By Rick Meints, President - Chaosium On this last day of the year we at Chaosium look back on the whole of 2017 with great pride. While we always have things we can improve, we also need to remind ourselves of how much we have accomplished—especially in terms of bringing out new books and games that surprise and delight our customers. In general, 2017 has been a year of growth for Chaosium. We produced more books and games than we did last year, and printed them in greater numbers, while n
  11. Chaosium releases are notable for their high quality art and cartography. At the 2017 ENnies, Chaosium releases won awards for Best Cover Art (gold), Best Interior Art (silver), Best Cartography (gold) and Best Production Values (gold), among others. We strive to maintain this award-winning standard across our product lines, working with artists from around the world. Artists interested in working on Chaosium projects can enquire through our new Art Submissions page: https://www.chaosium.com/art-submission
  12. It is twenty years after the end of the global wars. Our world lies in ruin. Once-great cities are now nothing more than shattered hulks populated with bioengineered soldiers, giant rats, and rogue robots. This is the world of Rubble & Ruin, a setting inspired by the classic post-apocalyptic fiction of the 1970's and 80's, where players take the role of prospectors searching the rubble for surviving technology. Here you'll find a description of the ruined city and its denizens, a bestiary, information on hostile elements, common trade goods, and sample gangs. Character generati

  18. Anyone here planning on going to DunDraCon? http://www.dundracon.com/ Anyone planning on running (especially RQ ( most especially a playtester/demo-monkey running RQ:Next ) ) at DunDraCon? I see the good folk at DDC already have a special "Basic Game" track (adhering to a strict format) for CoC7 (also FAE & D&D5) ... http://www.dundracon.com/Submit_Game.php?Type=COC7 N.B. much-less-strict format can be had in the general game, but I believe those games are expected to run about 8 hours, instead of 4. For those who've never been to a 'Con -- it's really worth goin
  19. So I'm setting up a Call of Cthulhu game and I'm having some trouble choosing between all of the many ways I can run this. My friends say they would like to be a little more than the mundane average joe as they are used to running fantasy themed rpgs and not really anything close to horror. This is my first Call of Cthulhu game and want to make it entertaining for everyone. I have thought about Chronicles of Darkness/Hunter: The Vigil and making it CoC themed. I have also thought about D20 CoC (which uses DnD 3.5 rules) with Pathfinder rules. I am however a bit nervous about using the Cha
  20. In case you missed it, here's a link to the Chaosium Call of Cthulhu Gen Con Panel I recorded from Gen Con on Friday (Aug 5th) for those who couldn't go. Mike Mason, Sandy Petersen, Jeff Richards, Paul Fricker, and Lynn Hardy talk about new plans for the Cthulhu line and share some juicy new details. The youtube description contains a breakdown of topics and timestamps. Biggest news is a new campaign from Lynn Hardy, new Pulp Cthulhu campaign from Paul Fricker, new collection of scenarios from Sandy Petersen, and remarks about quality and production from all Cthulhu products dow
  21. Hey all, a new RQ Design notes is now up at the Chaosium page: http://www.chaosium.com/blog/designing-the-new-runequest-part-10/ ------- Good news RuneQuest fans - the manuscript for the core rules of RuneQuest has now been passed over to Jason Durall for copy editing! Jason's been informally involved with the design team from the beginning as a sounding board, but now he's taking on a very active role (including correcting any of the many mistakes and errors that may have snuck in as I finalized the draft). He'll also be writing the rules examples based on the ongoing characte
  22. The newest segment of the RuneQuest Designer Notes is up at the Chaosium mainsite http://www.chaosium.com/blog/designing-the-new-runequest-part-5/ Designing the New RuneQuest - Part 5 Posted by Michael O'Brien on April 27, 2016 By Jeff Richard A few thoughts on RuneQuest combat... RuneQuest combat is a fundamentally different experience than in most other roleplaying games. First, and I think most commonly talked about, the actions in a RuneQuest combat correspond with what we imagine might actually happen in a melee - someone swings a sword at you, you are in b
  23. http://us8.campaign-archive1.com/?u=c3792dc30db9982558880998c&id=303430ebda FIRST ANNUAL UPDATE - 2 June 2016 Rick Meints President, Chaosium Today marks one year since the Great Old Ones returned to Chaosium. I paused after writing that. The last 12 months went by so quickly, and so much has happened it is hard to take it all in. We in the new Chaosium have worked very hard to transform a company on the verge of bankruptcy into a thrivi
  24. As the new Director of Organized Play, I would like to introduce myself and invite you to join me at the game table this year. My name is Todd Gardiner and I am tasked with getting more people to have their first experience with Chaosium games and making more opportunity for existing players to play more in our worlds.Whether it is Call of Cthulhu, Heroquest, or any of our other great games, these games are top notch experiences and we want more people to have a chance to play them. To do that, we need more GMs running sessions. Both demos and full game sessions. It is our goal to su
