Chaosium, (kay-OSS-ee-yum) is a California corporation known for publishing high quality books and games, and for having a well-developed sense of fun.

In 1975 the company was founded as The Chaosium by Greg Stafford, visionary game designer and creator of the world of Glorantha and the Pendragon roleplaying game, among others. In 1980 it was incorporated as Chaosium Inc. Chaosium thrives in the mild climate, gorgeous surroundings, and gentle earthquakes of the San Francisco Bay area.

Our main office is in Hayward, located about half-way between San Francisco and San Jose. A short walk away is a very good micro-brewery (and one of the oldest!) and Charlie Krank’s home. Charlie is our president and resident BBQ expert.

Most of Chaosium's product lines are based upon literary sources. H.P. Lovecraft's 1920's horror fiction provides the basis of the classic Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game line which has won so many awards that the we have lost count, though we do know that there are more than 80 of them. Mr. Lovecraft also provides the inspiration for many of the books in our Chaosium Fiction line. We also publish Basic Roleplaying, the core of our roleplaying game systems, Magic World, and hundreds of game supplements, both in print and downloadable formats.

In 2015, Chaosium celebrates our 40th anniversary and in 2016, Call of Cthulhu its 35th!

It's given me a real insight into my own culture and the way that I communicate with ot...

by lorrainegehrin

Love the History of English podcast and its website. The maps are great and the audio samples, like the Gregorian chants or "Sumer Is Icumen In" add so much to an already terrific podcast.

I also bought from the website the Beowulf audiobook, which was terrific, and my husband boug...

The History of Byzantium

Very much enjoy The History of Byzantium podcast and website. I like the maps on the site and the ability to buy special episodes from the site.

I wish there was an easier way to get to specific episodes, or at least specific maps. Still, the site is so much better than many simil...

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.
