Chaosium has appointed Community Ambassadors for its Miskatonic Repository and Jonstown Compendium community content programs on DriveThruRPG.
The Miskatonic Repository is Chaosium's platform on DriveThruRPG for independent creators of gaming material for the Call of Cthulhu tabletop roleplaying game. It was launched in December 2018. The Jonstown Compendium, established in December 2019, fulfils the same function for RuneQuest and Greg Stafford's world of Glorantha.
The success of these fan-driven programs is evident by their thriving communities of creators and the rapidly growing number of titles available, with more added every week.
On Chaosium's behalf, they will act as a first point-of-call and helpful sound board for prospective Miskatonic Repository and Jonstown Compendium content creators.
They can provide advice with the various aspects of creating and publishing a community content work, including ideas generation, IP issues, writing, editing, art direction, layout, publication, and preparing a title for print-on-demand. They can also direct queries to the appropriate person at Chaosium or DriveThruRPG if need be.
"Nick was recently awarded the Greg Stafford Memorial Award for Gloranthan Fandom for 2020 for his passionate advocacy of the Jonstown Compendium. We're happy to formalise that advocacy with this appointment. And Allen is a highly experienced and award-winning content creator with a deep and dedicated love of the Call of Cthulhu RPG. We are pleased to have both on board to work directly with our growing band of independent writers and artists at DriveThruRPG," said Chaosium vice president Michael O'Brien.
