On the print release of the new two volume Malleus Monstrorum Cthulhu Mythos Bestiary for Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition, we spoke to one of the co-authors (and creator of the original edition), Scott David Aniolowski:Q: What was your first involvement with Call of Cthulhu? Do you recall your first game?A: The first time I played Call of Cthulhu was sometime in the early 1980s.

Out of the Suitcase #4: ​cataloging a bit of Chaosium history

January 13th, 2021|

Chaosium President Rick Meints shares stories from a life-time as a collector of all things ChaosiumLast Saturday, during an informal discussion about Chaosium history on Discord, I briefly mentioned the old Chaosium catalogs and what wonderful information they contain. The catalogs provide snapshots of the company's products for many moments in time. From 1975 until right around 2000 Chaosium didn't have an online store. In fact, for the first 10 years of our existence you either bought our games in person at a game store or convention, or you could buy them directly from us via mail order. I suppose that some of [...]

Birthed from the CultsAs Jason explains, when Jeff Richard—Creative Director of Glorantha and primary RuneQuest author—was working [...]

Out of the Suitcase #3: ​Sometimes things are less dicey than they seem…

January 10th, 2021|

Chaosium President Rick Meints shares stories from a life-time as a collector of all things ChaosiumBelieve it or not, the scholarly pursuit of understanding and cataloging the specific color of the dice included in each Chaosium boxed set has been seriously undertaken by more than one gaming historian. Knowledge is good. I helped each of these efforts to gain enlightenment*. I'm a big "list" sort of guy by nature and habit. Recently, some fans were asking about the specific dice, and their color, used in the early Call of Cthulhu boxed sets from the 80s.Unfortunately, the answer is somewhat disappointing. The Chaosium [...]
