Chaosium News & Rumors

The R’lyeh Report

Volume 6, Number 6

September 13, 2002

Transmitted by the Leng Embassy, Silverton Colorado.

Welcome to the September 2002 issue of the R’lyeh Report, featuring all the latest Chaosium news and views.

Howdy Folks!

As I gaze out the Leng Embassy office window I can see aspen turning to gold, which means Autumn is here. Where did the Summer go?
I reckon I missed it while preparing for, attending, and catching up from Origins & Gen Con. 🙂
I hope your Summer was full of Chaosium gaming and good times with friends.

This month we have a couple of new releases to announce. We’ll be revisiting Lovecraft Country this fall with the release of
sourcebooks for Dunwich, Arkham, and Kingsport. These books, along with the upcoming Miskatonic Sourcebook will give Call of
Cthulhu keepers a very detailed Lovecraft Country setting in which to run 1920’s campaigns. We’re very excited to be returning to
the very roots of our Call of Cthulhu line.

We also have plenty of Call of Cthulhu fiction in the works as well. The next few months will see several new Mythos works as well
as reprints of classic tales. Our ever expanding Call of Cthulhu fiction line will include new edition of the Necronomicon and a
reprinting our our classic Encyclopedia Cthulhiana as well.

Our Eternal Champion line has experienced some bad luck of late. Several titles have fallen into limbo along with their authors.
But we’ve received a couple of proposals recently which will hopefully lead to new books for both Stormbringer and Dragon Lords of
Melnibone. There is also a book in the works which the author has asked us to keep secret for now. Once we have the book in house,
we’ll announce it in a future R’lyeh report.
