We hope that you, your family, and your friends continue to be in good health.
Chaosium's warehouses in the USA, UK, Australia, Poland, and now Canada, are all shipping product normally. While delivery times may be slower than usual, the only country we currently cannot ship to is Norway.
We have also been advised by Diamond/Alliance, one of our major distributors, that they will begin resuming operations the week of May 18. This is good news for game stores!
Please remember that buying electronic versions of our products from Chaosium.com or DriveThruRPG is of course, unaffected. And 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.
We will announce any changes to our shipping and fulfilment status as the situation continues to unfold.
The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting communities everywhere. We are all in this together, all over the world, and it's never been more urgent to support the global response. We're supporting global relief efforts for the COVID-19 situation in several ways:
- Until the end of this month, we're donating 100% of the proceeds of the "Pay-What-You-Want" Gloranthan board game Last Faction Hero to the World Health Organisation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Last Faction Hero is available to download as a print-and-play game at our new page at itch.io.
- At our Redbubble merchandise store we're offering face masks featuring dozens of Chaosium designs to wear until the Stars are Right again! For every mask sold, Redbubble is donating a mask to the Heart to Heart International charity.
- At DriveThruRPG, we've included RuneQuest Classic in the Cov-19 World Food Programme Bundle. This charity bundle contains titles worth a total of $625.51, but is available for $19.95 – a saving of 97%. All proceeds from this bundle will go towards the WFP's efforts to prevent hunger during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On behalf of the whole Chaosium team, wishing everyone all the best until the Stars are Right again.
— Rick Meints, president Chaosium Inc.
