We formally welcome these members of the Chaosium team to their new roles!

Kuba PolkowskiKuba Polkowski, formerly working as an art director for Chaosium, is now lead producer for our new board games division which is led by Chaosium Vice President Daria Pilarczyk. Kuba’s major focus is the board game version of Horror on the Orient Express, announced to great excitement at Gen Con this year, and due to be launched on Kickstarter in March 2024. 

Horror on the Orient Express, designed by by Adam Kwapiński (Nemesis, Frostpunk) and Michał Gołąb Gołębiowski (Destinies), is the first in a line of planned  blockbuster board games based on well-known Chaosium IPs by high profile designers.


On the departure of James Lowder earlier this year, Susan O’Brien took on the additional role of Chaosium line editor for fiction.

Susan is overseeing the launch of fiction titles based on Chaosium’s established game lines including Call of Cthulhu, RuneQuest (Glorantha), 7th Sea, and Pendragon. Susan's first title, for a new Pendragon line of fiction, is Arthur the Soldier, book one of Chris Gidlow’s The Ruin of Britain trilogy. 

Susan is also managing the recently-announced partnership with Aconyte Books to publish fiction for Regency Cthulhu and Cthulhu by Gaslight.

Having now passed the baton of board games to Kuba, Susan will continue to work with him shepherding through to release the current board game projects Red Thread of Fate and legacy titles Credo and White Bear and Red Moon aka Dragon Pass
