Open letter to chaosium

Recommended Posts

An open letter to chaosium 

As a fan of the greatest rpg call of cthulhu since 2nd edition I need to say I love the 7th edition but I do need to ask (beg) for the following settings and campaigns.

1. Dark ages -  need I say more?

2. Gaslight - cthulhu by gaslight needs to come back

3. Colonial - imagine playing in colonial Arkham 

4. Dreamland - please release this for 7th edition 

Can we also get a 7th edition of the brotherhood of the beast module? Lovecraft.jpg

If I remember correctly, Chaosium announced at last year's Kraken convention that they were working on a new edition of Gaslight, along with a Gaslight campaign called "The Curse of Seven" or something like that. A Dreamlands book was in the works too. @Runeblogger might know more.

With the exceptions of the Colonial one and Brotherhood of the Beast, all of these are in the works.  A snippet of preview art has been shown for Dreamlands, which is tentative for 2020 I believe.

In another thread (either on this site or Yog-Sothoth.com) Chaosium have said that Dark Ages has mutated into a medieval supplement that is being worked on. Chaosium stated they want to redo all the "big" campaign books for 7th Edition as well but I think they said Shadows of Yog-Sothoth was first on the list. So all are in the pipeline except for a Colonial supplement.

I think the nearest to release is either the Dreamlands book or Gaslight book.

Yes, below you can read the list of upcoming publications, as revealed by Lynne Hardy:

Waiting for the sun...

True true...but first I'd prefer to see new Dunwich, Arkham, Innsmouth and Kingsport area books.

Colonial era supplement is in the hands of Sixty Stone Press, a licensee.

Apparently Sixtystone Press doesn't have a web presence.  All my searches go to DrivethruRPG or various blogs.  No .com out there.

That's because USAian norms aren't universally observed.

http://www.sixtystonepress.co.uk/

(that said... there seem to be some problems with their site; so maybe they're doing a revamp, or even decommissioning it, in favor of blogs/vendors/etc only (I've seen some vendors doing this:  they have an "official" FB page, Twitter, etc... but no actual website of their own.); or maybe their web-hosting service is just glitching and returning empty HTML.)

Hmmmm.... OK I'll just assume you were not Intentionally try to be an .......

Not finding a .com among normal people doesn't mean it has to be an actual .com.  most understand it means a webpage.  USAism?  Hilarious.  I guess we just have to find reasons to be upset.  Back to topic the .co.uk link did not come up any web searches. Many references on blogs, reviews and stores referring to products.  But no actual company link. Odd, but not unheard of.

But thank you for their link.

It was literally the 1st result in my search.  Top-most link.  No  search-term finesse, just explicit quotes around "sixty stone press" on Google.

I've got no idea how your search found "many references" and yet did not find the most-relevant.

But I guess I'm not "normal," nor any of my friends, as I don't recognize .com to be a regular synonym for website, and have never before met that usage.

USA+suffix, in contrast(USAian, USAism, etc) IS something I've seen and used for at least a decade or so online.

So... hilarious? ... I guess.  Whater floats your boat, or offends you, or amuses you, or whatever...  I'm not the one who "assume(d) you were not Intentionally try to be an ...... " so if you took offense, I'm sorry.

Just to say - 

in 2020, we are working on:

Cthulhu by Gaslight

Arkham and a Guide to the Miskatonic Valley

and Dreamlands thereafter.

Good news may also be had concerning things like Mansions of Madness, Malleus Monstrorum, Children of Fear, and something else.......

Wonder what new cosmic horrors are to be unveiled.

You mean Lewis Carroll, don't you? 😉

No it's another one 😛, if you read the graphic novel From Hell by Alan Moore based on the book The final solution by Stephen Knight.

@MOB,Are there any plans for a book on Mythos Tomes or Artifacts?

Various tomes and artifacts appear in just about any Call of Cthulhu scenario but we do not have a dedicated book about them in the works.

This is good news. Given the prices on the secondary market for prior editions' Lovecraft Country sourcebooks, new editions of those will be very welcome for hardcopy aficionados.
