Press [Chaosium] 1000th Release for the Miskatonic Repository, Chaosium's platform for independent Call of Cthulhu creators at DriveThruRPG

Today Chaosium celebrates the release of the 1000th title in the Miskatonic Repository, Chaosium's community content platform for independent Call of Cthulhu creators at DriveThruRPG!

Chaosium vice president Michael O'Brien said, "We congratulate the hundreds of creators involved in reaching this significant milestone, many of whom got their first experience of publishing a Tabletop Roleplaying Game title in the Miskatonic Repository. They are now part of a thriving and supportive Call of Cthulhu creator community, producing works of amazing variety, set in mysterious locations all over the world and in time periods from Ancient Egypt to the far future."


Chaosium has helped foster new TTRPG creators through such initiatives as appointing Community Ambassadors Nick Brooke, Allan Carey and Bridgett Jeffries; by working with the Storytelling Collective to develop a dedicated Call of Cthulhu stream for their 'Write Your First Adventure' workshop series; and by sponsoring Miskatonic Repository Con. The #MiskatonicMonday posts at the Chaosium news blog also promote new releases in the Miskatonic Repository on a regular basis.

"We know Miskatonic Repository titles are popular with fans because they invariably feature in the Top Ten of DriveThruRPG's Top Selling Community Content list, and sometimes even at the top of the bestselling list for the entire DriveThruRPG site itself." said O'Brien.

And the thousandth title itself? That is The Strange Case of Anthony Hanson, a scenario set in the modern day by Leopoldo Rueda.

Also, do check out Leopoldo's previous Miskatonic Repository release, Horror at the Westmore Hotel – a Silver bestseller, and available in Spanish too.

What is the Miskatonic Repository?​

Under the Miskatonic Repository community content license, independent Call of Cthulhu creators can make their own work for use with the game line available to the public, using guidelines, templates, and art provided by Chaosium. This program for the Call of Cthulhu TTRPG operates in a similar way to the DM's Guild for Dungeons and Dragons.

"We encourage Call of Cthulhu fans to check out everything on offer in the Miskatonic Repository, and if they have an itch to create something themselves, Chaosium and our community are ready to help!", said Chaosium vice president Michael O'Brien.

And we have also recently marked the milestone of 250 titles in the Jonstown Compendium, our similar independent creator program for RuneQuest and Greg Stafford's World of Glorantha!
