We have pressed the reset button...

In 1975 Chaosium started out as a quirky boutique game company. We were all about creativity, artistry and craftsmanship. With every game we provided you with new realms of imagination and entertainment. Over the last few years we forgot that, and lost our way.

The Great Old Ones have Returned…
Greg Stafford, founder of Chaosium and creative force during its heyday, is now President. Sandy Petersen, world renowned game designer who brought Cthulhu into the light three decades ago, has rejoined the team as well.

Greg says: "Chaosium is part of my legacy. My intent is to restore it to its rightful place in the world of gaming. Something we can all take pride in, and something that fans will look forward to.Where 'what’s next?' is answered with 'I can’t wait'."

The Stars are Right…
Sandy says: "I am excited to return to active participation in the Call of Cthulhu line, and I’m eagerly looking forward to working directly with Greg again. We are Chaosium's original team from the 1980s. My first focus is going to be the Call of Cthulhu 7th edition Kickstarter campaign."

Our main plan is simple (but will be a lot of work):

Quickly sift and sort through the current company problems
Immediately ship the remaining Horror on the Orient Express backer rewards
Focus on the Call of Cthulhu 7th edition Kickstarter backer rewards
Return to regularly making awesome new games.

We offer new hope, and ask only for your patience."

Greg Stafford, President and CEO of Chaosium Inc.
I’m puttin' the band back together.

Didn't see this one coming. Great news hopefully, as many would agree Chaosium has lost its way a little. I'm optimistic for the future (until it ends and we're all eaten obviously.)

May we get an honest and straight answer about the 7e books status. Please?

I haven't followed CoC all that much, but is 7th Edition going to get a print version? I think I saw the e-books before Christmas, but I've heard nothing about a print book.

I'm not being impatient or demanding or passive/aggressive or anything: I honestly don't know if they plan to release that or not.
