Chaosium Inc. Newsletter

The latest RPG and game releases from Chaosium...

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

The great dust cloud shows that with a little less than two days to go in Chaosium's KHAN OF KHANS Kickstarter, more than 1100 backers have already joined our nomad horde on the vast Plains of Prax.

Who knows how many more may yet join us in the final days before we ride for plunder and glory!
You can back the full KHAN OF KHANS game for just $20, and it's from two of the best known names in tabletop design (Reiner Knizia and Greg Stafford). So come join us in plundering Dragon Pass!
The Kickstarter campaign concludes on Tuesday January 31st at 11.57am US Eastern Standard Time (4.57pm GMT)
Also check out KHAN OF KHANS with our FREE Print & Play, with rules available in English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and now Turkish!

And Glorantha fans! Don't forget, Greg Stafford's NOMADS GODS Rulebook—with Gene Day's awesomely old school fantasy 1977 cover—is available as a PDF add-on for $9 in our Khan of Khans Kickstarter!

Et stellæ sunt iure!*

- Cthulhu Invictus update -

In late 2016 we announced Golden Golden Press was granted the license to produce Cthulhu Invictus, the "Ancient Rome" line of supplements for Call of Cthulhu.

Here's what Golden Goblin are planning for their first release - carpe noctum!**

"Take your Call of Cthulhu game back in time to the Age of the Antonines, The Golden Age of Imperial Rome. Battle sinister cults, unspeakable horrors, and alien gods across the Roman Empire, from the misty shores of Britannia to the bustling markets of the Arabia, deep in the forests of Germania and across the stacks of the Library of Alexandria, from the Pyramids to the Parthenon, from the Colosseum to Hadrian's Wall, from the trading ports of North Africa to the coast of the Black Sea. Adventure, glory, death, and madness await."
Golden Goblin says, "Join us, for the glory of Rome! The Empire Needs You!"
Golden Goblin's Kickstarter launches on February 8th 2017, concluding on March 15th (The Ides of March). There are lots of exciting stretch goals planned, including a fiction companion, a Keeper’s screen, pre-generated investigators, additional content and scenarios.

*the Stars are right!
**seize the night!
Licensee Focus:


Fear's Sharp Little Needles is a modern day collection of licensed one-shot Call of Cthulhu scenarios from our friends Stygian Fox.
Described as "less like Dr Phibes or Nosferatu and more like true Detective and Hannibal", these adventures involvine mythos corruption of the Human psyche, with many featuring direct contact with entities from outside space and time.

The Kickstarter is now live and rocketing through the stretch goals!
...and ending very soon: THE STAR ON THE SHORE Kickstarter, a classic 1920's Call of Cthulhu adventure from our friends Dark Cult Games. Back it while you can!
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.
