What about the Vault in Chaosium's online shop?


Recommended Posts

The Vault, which contained all the PDFs from Hero Wars and HeroQuest 1, has disappeared from the Chaosium online shop. Could well be, that this happened in the context of the 'Stay In and Game' Warehouse Clearance Sale, but as far as I can say, this has never been announced officially. (I do not assume, that "While stocks last!" applies to PDF only articles 😉).

Or do I miss something?

It's probably to do with the transfer of the heroquest trademark to hasbro. Once that  was agreed the stuff was only going to be available for a limited time before they ran into copyright and trademark issues. The article at the top of the page will give you the full lowdown.

The TM business shouldn't require the Vault vanishing  altogether though. Really early HeroWars branded stuff wouldn't be affected, and I thought it also had earlier edition CoC materials.

It did have CoC stuff too, yeah, and the hero wars stuff shouldn't have been affected. If it was intentional I hope they give us a reason soon. I already bought most of the books I wanted from it but it'd be unfortunate for it to be gone for good. I hope it was just a mistake of some sort, though the fact that things like the ILH are harder to find on DTRPG now makes me worried (you can still find them with a search, but they're no longer in the Heroquest category on Chaosium's page).

It was intentional, and we did it to focus on current game editions. If there's a PDF that used to be on chaosium.com that you want to buy, please search for it on DTRPG. As for them being hard to find on DTRPG, please search by title until we finish assigning some HW/HQ titles to the HeroQuest category to increase their visibility.

Sartar Rising 3-Gathering Thunder is not on DTRPG, please consider uploading it.
