I'm asking around to find out if that's what happened with the Vikings material. It's certainly possible it got repurposed. Sandy Petersen, Steve Perrin or Ken Rolston should know. Worlds of Wonder came out in 1982 and Vikings for RQ3 came out in 1985, so the time between the two products is not that much.

In this 'Out of the Suitcase' instalment, Rick looks at the special editions produced for Call of Cthulhu's 20th anniversary in 2001.

(BTW, this year is the 40th anniversary of Call of Cthulhu. We have some special items underway to mark this milestone too. Look out for these later this year!)

Although it is on the cover of the first edition rules booklet, Marvel Comics artist Gene Day drew this iconic depiction of Cthulhu several years before the RPG was even conceived of. Rick is trying to track down which publication Gene drew this for, and wonders if anyone can use their Library Use skill to find out more:

In 'Out of the Suitcase', Chaosium President Rick Meints shares stories from a life-time as a collector of all things Chaosium. Here Rick talks about one of the "best decisions I ever made", moving to the UK in 1995 and being welcomed into a wonderfully creative and energetic circle of friends collectively known as the Reaching Moon Megacorp.
