Update about Éditions Sans-Détour regarding preorder customers

Posted by Michael O'Brien on 2nd Jan 2019

Please be advised we have told Éditions Sans-Détour to cease all presales of Les Masques de Nyarlathotep (Masks of Nyarlathotep) and Le Jour de la Bête (Day of the Beast) on their website. As the license has been withdrawn due to non-payment of royalties and other cardinal violations of the contract, ESD has no legal right or authority from Chaosium to continue presales, or offer these books for retail distribution, or elsewhere.

Chaosium has already publicly assured existing backers of the Masks/Day of the Beast Ulule crowfunding campaign that ESD will not be prevented from fulfilling their obligations to them (although we ourselves have not been paid). Chaosium unilaterally extends this special limited license to those who have already unwittingly made a presale purchase direct from ESD (up to Jan 2, 2019), so ESD can fulfil their obligations to them too.

Anyone who has purchased a presale of Masks or Day of the Beast elsewhere (including game stores) should seek a refund from where they bought it.

Chaosium reserves all rights to seek legal relief against ESD as specified under its (now-lapsed) contract with ESD.
