The big news so far this month is the return of our Online Catalog. You can now order Chaosium books at http://chaosium.com/online-store/scstore/ if you’re having trouble finding them locally. At present, you can buy all of our in print books as well as Miskatonic University Diplomas there.
Our latest release, H.P. Lovecraft’s Arkham shipped to distributors in March, and should be on store shelves by now. This city sourcebook includes Call of Cthulhu d20 stats and can be used with both Classic Call of Cthulhu and the WOTC d20 version. More details about this book can be found at the end of this update.
Our next release, Disciples of Cthulhu 2, is still at the printer. I expect this book to ship to distributors in early May. That would put it on store shelve by mid-May in all likelihood. Of course the book might ship sooner if all goes well, so think happy thoughts everyone! More details about our newest Call of Cthulhu fiction anthology can be found at the end of this update.
After Disiples of Cthulhu 2, the next four books to release will be H.P. Lovecraft’s Kingsport (COC & COC d20), Secrets of Japan (COC), The White People and other Tales (COC Fiction), and a reprint of our Encylopedia Cthulhiana (COC & COC Fiction). The exact order in which these titles release will depend upon how fast we get the last art bits for the new books. Right now, it appears that White People and Other Tales will be the next book to be printed.
We’re still looking for some GM’s to run demonstration games of Call of Cthulhu at the upcoming Origins Convention. If you’ll be attending and have some time to spare, drop us a line! (mailto:[email protected])
Once again, we’d like to single out steadfast web monkey Matt “Trollboy” Wiseman for helping us get our site and email lists transferred to the new server, as well as helping us with our upcoming online catalog. Thank you Matt!
Thanks for your continued support everyone!
Charlie, David, Dustin & Lynn.

H. P. LOVECRAFT’S ARKHAM
Unveiling the Legend-Haunted City
By Keith Herber
Dual Stat d20 and Classic (BRP) Call of Cthulhu
Fold Out Map
“Behind everything crouched the brooding, festering horror of the ancient town . . . the changeless, legend-haunted city of Arkham, with its clustering gambrel roofs that sway and sag over attics where witches hid from the King’s men in the dark, olden days of the Province.
“It was always a very bad time in Arkham . . . .”
-H. P. Lovecraft
ARKHAM is a small town along the Massachusetts coast-the setting favored by author Howard Phillips Lovecraft in his tales of monstrous horror.
All in all a quiet place, Arkham is best-known as the home of Miskatonic University, an excellent school becoming known for its esoteric and disturbing volumes residing in its library’s Restricted Collection. These tomes form the foundation of all current efforts to thwart the dire desires of the Mythos legion.
H.P. Lovecraft’s ARKHAM contains extensive background information about this haunted New England town-written to be used by serious investigators as a base from which to further explore the mysteries of the Cthulhu Mythos. Pertinent buildings, useful people, and important locations are described in depth. A 17×22″ players’ map of Arkham is bound into the back, and four thrilling adventures complete the package.
Includes the H.P. Lovecraft short story “The Dreams in the Witch-house” (1933)
Fully compatible with both Call of Cthulhu from Chaosium Inc. and Call of Cthulhu d20.
Part of our expanding 1920’s Lovecraft Country line.
This book contains material previously published as Arkham Unveiled (1990) and Compact Arkham Unveiled (1995). Each book long out of print.
Disciples of Cthulhu II
Blasphemous Tales of the Followers
5.25 X 8.5 inches
Call of Cthulhu Fiction
Edited and Introduced by Edward P. Berglund
Bad things tend happen to people who go where they are not wanted, or who over-stay their welcome once they reach their destination. This book contains thirteen new personal explorations of the Cthulhu Mythos. As its title suggests, this is a companion volume to Edward P. Berglund’s earlier classic Mythos collection, _The Disciples of Cthulhu_. Both books are published by Chaosium, but their contents are entirely different. All of the stories in _Cthulhu II_ are original and have never been published before. All the stories record the dire fates of people whose destinies intertwine with the Mythos.
This book is part of an expanding collection of Cthulhu Mythos horror fiction and related topics. Call of Cthulhu fiction focuses on single entities, concepts, or authors significant to readers and fans of H.P. Lovecraft.
Includes 13 new works of fiction based upon the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft.
Part of our ever expanding Call of Cthulhu fiction series.
