With the back of his shovel, Old Klaus Mehler is now patting down the soil on the grave plot after we got notification from Kickstarter that 713 souls pledged $41,611 to help send the Graveyards of Arkham project into eternity.

The Chaosium team thanks the backers for their support over the past 21 days. The campaign succeeded our expectations (we hoped to get to 666 backers). Now we must put our efforts into the next phase of this Kickstarter - production planning for the Graveyards of Arkham shoot in Los Angeles in late September, and delivering the backer rewards as quickly and efficiently as we can.

To that end, with the crowdfunding campaign barely fresh in the grave, Chaosium's Michael O'Brien (MOB) and Brian Holland, executive producers of Graveyards of Arkham, lost no time to go visit the Good Time Society studio in Los Angeles literally the same day the Kickdstarter ended, to plot and plan.

Good Time Society are our official production partners. Founded by Becca Scott and Jake Michels, shown here with MOB and Brian, Good Time Society is a production company that creates community driven gaming content focused on inclusivity, comedy, and creativity.

Chaosium has worked with Good Time Society many times since their debut, including the popular Call of Cthulhu series The Calyx, and the blockbuster one-shot The Auction in 2021.

You can see next steps at Update #15 on the Kickstarter page.

Exciting! The Graveyards of Arkham film shoot starts in a few hours time at the Good Time Society studios in Los Angeles!

Cast and crew have assembled, the magnficent set is prepared, costumes are ready to be fitted, and we're good to go – and all of this is made possible thanks to our wonderful Kickstarter backers!

Here's a few quick snaps of the studio, while things are getting underway. We'll post another update at the end of the day's shooting, and every day while the filming takes place. This is going to be fun!

The folks at Good Time Society sure have knocked it out of the park for Graveyards of Arkham with their amazing set for the production! It's now a wrap for day one, with the filming of both episodes one and two, as well as appearances from two of our guest NPCs!

We'll be back with even more tomorrow, but for now please enjoy some photos!

It's a wrap on Day 2 of the Graveyards of Arkham shoot! Episodes 3 and 4 have been fittingly horrific, and we truly cannot wait for everyone to experience this story together!

Now begins the heart-breaking tear down of the set, and the cast is returning home. Here are some more behind-the-scenes shots from Day 3!
