The New Chaosium
GREG STAFFORD & SANDY PETERSEN RETURN TO CHAOSIUM INC. (from June 2015)
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 vowed to provide 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 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, Chairman of the Board. I’m puttin' the band back together.
