Michael O'Brien

Call of Cthulhu Quickstart in Ukrainian
Earlier this year Chaosium formed a licensing partnership with Ukraine-based games publisher Geekach to produce a local Ukrainian edition of the Call of Cthulhu tabletop roleplaying game.

And now we delighted to say that – under very challenging circumstances – Geekach have released the Call of Cthulhu Quick-Start Rules in Ukrainian as the first product in the line. The Quick-Start Rules also include the classic introductory adventure 'The Haunting', a rite of passage for Call of Cthulhu gamers world-wide. Currently available as a free download, and print copies will be available soon!

Раніше цього року Chaosium уклав ліцензійне партнерство з українським видавцем ігор Гікач, щоб створити локальне українське видання настільної рольової гри Call of Cthulhu.

І тепер ми раді повідомити, що – за дуже складних обставин – Гікач випустив Правила швидкого старту Call of Cthulhu українською як перший продукт у лінійці. Правила швидкого старту також включають класичну вступну гру «The Haunting», обряд посвячення для геймерів Call of Cthulhu з усього світу. Наразі доступно для безкоштовного завантаження, а друковані копії будуть доступні незабаром!

Somebody (Chaosium?) needs to translate the local Ukrainian scenarios into English and share the profits. Make some money, you'd be helping the Ukrainians too.

This year's KRAKEN gaming retreat at the Prussian Château Schloss Neuhausen welcomed Ukrainian gamers Tasha Dashkevich and Oleg Slovesny of the YouTube TTRPG channel IdeaRoll – and they brought print copies of the new Ukrainian Call of Cthulhu Quickstart rules! Our local 🇺🇦 partner Geekach have worked under very challenging conditions to produce this. Вітаю!

Earlier this year we shared an article by the Counteroffensive Substack which looked at the surge in Ukrainians playing #TTRPGs since the conflict in their country began as an interlude from the trauma and realities of the war. Tasha was one of the Ukrainian gamers interviewed for it. She said playing TTRPGs "helps anchor to a sense of normalcy, reminders of brighter yesterdays, and hope for a new future."
