The Chaosium was founded by visionary game designer Greg Stafford in 1975. For more than forty years,
Chaosium has captivated gamers, readers and mythic adventurers worldwide. Its award-winning roleplaying
games, boardgames and fiction have been acclaimed as some of the most engaging and innovative of all time.
It is two years since the passing of Chaosium company founder Greg Stafford. As one of the greatest game designers of all time; winner of too many awards to count; and a friend, mentor, guide, and inspiration to generations of gamers, “the Grand Shaman of Gaming” influenced the universe of tabletop gaming beyond measure, and we still feel his absence deeply.To honor Greg Stafford and with his family's blessing, over the next week on Chaosium.com, we'll be making several special announcements commemorating Greg and his legacy. #WeAreAllUs
