​COVID-19 Shipping and Fulfilment Update - March 27

Posted by Michael O'Brien on

We hope we hope that you, your family and friends are all in good health. 

Chaosium’s fulfilment warehouses (USA, UK, EU, and Australia) report that they are currently able to ship product as normal, with a few restrictions shipping to certain countries. We will announce any changes to this status as the situation continues to unfold.

Buying electronic versions of our products from Chaosium.com or DriveThruRPG is, of course, unaffected. 

Remember, if you buy a PDF direct from Chaosium, you get the full price of the PDF off the printed book if you decide to buy it later. That means you can start reading or playing straightaway, but get to split the overall cost of the book into two payments months apart. We get it though, if current circumstances mean this is something you can't afford right now. In the meantime, please enjoy some of the free material we're offering on our website (see the Free Stuff section), watch some of our videos at our YouTube Channel, or color in some eldritch scenes of Lovecraftian horror.

We continue to wish everyone all the best, until the Stars are Right again.
