PAX Aus, Australia's largest gaming convention, is rapidly approaching (Oct 11-13) and Chaosium will be there!


Get the latest Chaosium releases from our booth, which we're sharing with our friends from Aetherworks and TYPE 40.

Cloisonné of Cthulhu

Panel - "Done with the Dungeon?"

You may have heard about Dungeons and Dragons, seen live games on Twitch TV, or maybe even played it yourself. D&D is awesome, and phenomenally successful, but it's just the tip of the tabletop iceberg. Michael O'Brien (vice president, Chaosium Inc) and a panel of leading Australian and International RPG designers discuss the limitless possibilities tabletop roleplaying games offer your imagination across every conceivable genre. 

Join Chaosium's Michael O'Brien, Chris Pramas (Green Ronin), Tonya Woldridge (Paizo), Brian Holland (White Wolf) and Penelope Love (Campaign Coins) on Saturday Oct 12 in the Ibis Theatre for this meetings of minds: with the audience's help pitching ideas, the panel will even design an RPG from the ground up!


We're part of the 'Pinny Arcade' Pin Quest this year, with the special Cloisonné of Cthulhu, availably exclusively from our booth. 


Thanks to help from our team of volunteer Keepers and GMs from the Cult of Chaos, we're running Call of Cthulhu and RuneQuest each day until closing.

The adventures on offer are:
