Chaosium Inc. Newsletter

The latest news from Chaosium...

#32 the straight scoop from the well of chaos...

PAX AUS is happening this coming weekend, and Chaosium will be there!
Courtesy of our Australian fulfilment partner Aetherworks, we'll have the full range of Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition and other Chaosium products for sale at the Aetherworks Booth (TT706).
We also have a dedicated team of Keepers running non-stop Call of Cthulhu from 11AM - 11PM each day, plus some RuneQuest and even a demo game of the new edition of CREDO currently in development.
And, we're also taking part in two panels: "Cool of Cthulhu" and "Kickstarting Yourself to Death - Chaosium's Cautionary Tale."
So do come and say hi (or G'day) if you're coming to PAX AUS!

Hardback Print Edition (+ free PDF) available from chaosium.com
Wednesday 2nd November 
The Coming Storm is the first part of an epic HeroQuest Glorantha campaign taking the Red Cow Clan through the opening days of the Hero Wars. This book provides everything you need to run a classic clan-based Sartarite campaign.

Note: if you previously bought the PDF version of the Coming Storm from our website, we'll credit your early purchase so you can get the physical copy + PDF for the same price as those who buy when the hardback version becomes available. Look out for the coupon we'll send you by email.


Chaosium is a proud sponsor of Dragonmeet, 'the UK's friendliest games convention' and largest event of its kind in London. This year it's happening on ​Saturday 3rd Decemberfrom 10am - Midnight, at Novotel London West, Hammersmith.

Licensee Focus


The Dhole's House is a free 'online toolkit' for both Keepers and players of Call of Cthulhu7th Edition, developed by long-time fan Lee Carnell.

Members can create investigators that are fully compatible with Call of Cthulhu 7th edition and print off a PDF character sheet, all in a matter of minutes. All Investigators are saved and can be updated via the 'Character Control Panel' as the campaign unfolds.

Site members can also contribute to a Character Library, allowing anyone to download PDF character sheets for Call of Cthulhu investigators for use as PCs or NPC's. The Library is searchable by occupation and gender.

The Keeper section of the Library includes a handout generator for quick creation of in-game artefacts including three different types of telegram, visiting/business cards, newspaper clippings and calendars.

Go to https://www.dholeshouse.org to try out the investigator generator and toolkit.
And a final reminder: the Hudson and BrandKickstarter, from our friends Stygian Fox, is in its last hours. This is a superb Cthulhu By Gaslight resource detailing a ready-made Victorian anti-Cthulhu Mythos organization - well worth a look!
What is Ab Chaos?
(...from Ab Chaos #7, May 31 1992)

Ab - Latin "from"
Chaos - (1) Any condition or place of total disorder (modern vernacular); (2) the disordered state of unformed matter which preceded creation (since Milton, Paradise Lost); (3) the dark, empty space which preceded creation (Greek Mythology); (4) the [formerly] Californian roleplaying game company.

Ab Chaos is an informal newsletter for Chaosium fans. Through our history we have tried to serve the players and gamemasters through craft and art as well as (and sometimes at the expense of) marketing and moneymaking. We appreciate your loyalty, and offer this communication to those who are curious about us, beyond the mere "product".

It is planned to be informal and irregular. We are, after all, not the Orderium.
