Chaosium Community Content at DriveThruRPG
The Miskatonic Repository is Chaosium's platform on DriveThruRPG for independent creators of gaming material for the Call of Cthulhu tabletop roleplaying game. It was launched in December 2018. The Jonstown Compendium, established in December 2019, fulfils the same function for RuneQuest and Greg Stafford's world of Glorantha.
Chaosium's Community Ambassadors
Want to create community content yourself? Allan, Bridgett, and Nick are here to provide advice with the various aspects of creating and publishing a community content work, including ideas generation, IP issues, writing, editing, art direction, layout, publication, and preparing a title for print-on-demand. Our Community Ambassadors can also direct queries to the appropriate person at Chaosium or DriveThruRPG if need be.
nb This year Chaosium itself did not submit any products for consideration as we've won our fair share recently (32 ENNIE Awards from 37 nominations in the last six years). But we strongly encouraged the independent creators in our Miskatonic Repository and Jonstown Compendium community content programs to enter instead.
