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!

I'm a cord cutter and love hulu. They do a great job of providing up to date programming for most shows and the service is quite reliable. Their original programming isn't quite as good as their competitors, but pretty darn close. My main gripes are, 1) No CBS of CW shows, so I have to use differ...

So, there isn't much to be said other than subscribing to Netflix is almost a necessity if you enjoy television. Their original programming is amazing and they have a great backlog of older television shows and some movies. The only thing I am disappointed about is that their movie selection is s...

I have been a GQ magazine reader for years and their website has just as high quality as the print publication. Now, specifically, they are doing a great job covering the 2017 political climate in a fair and unbiased way.

The History of Byzantium

by Carol W.

Good follow up to the History of Rome. Clear Narrative, I like that he generally sticks to mid-length episodes, but alters the length when needed.
