Chaosium released their 2012 release schedule today.

Some cool stuff on there. I have to wonder if "Pulp Adventures for BRP -- BRP Sourcebook" is what is left from whatever was done for Pulp Cthulhu.

Atomic Age Cthulhu -- COC Adventure Collection

This popped out at me. Cold War Cthulhu has a lot of promise.

if they're all full books then cool, If most of them are monographs, no thanks. Also, id read 2012 as 2012-2013.

Steff, Lower down the page it does say "Additionally, we have many, many monographs in the works." implying that the listed works are not monographs.

I'm excited for the Atomic Cthulhu, the CoC adventures, and the BRP pulp stuff.

There's a discussion from one of the authors on this site too!

"Shan Campaign"?! I would be all for that! I always enjoyed those crazy crazy insects from Shaggai.

Yep. Saw that. Will wait and see. They've done this before.

A few of these upcoming products have been (unofficially) announced previously in various threads here on YSDC. There's a page on the CthulhuWiki (with many sparsely-populated product sub-pages) which tries to collate all the "intel" on what's in the works, not just by Chaosium but by all the licensees. There's lots of intriguing stuff being worked on ...

They get more than 5 of those out (even giving them the 1st 2, which are already out in PDF) and I'll be absolutely dumbfounded. From what I can see at the moment, they have no money. Or, as I like to call it, business as usual for Chaosium.

Frankly, I think Steff's estimate of this being a release schedule for 2012-2013 is being unbelievably optimistic.

Yep. Jaded old bugger. Or Buddha. Both work.

While they HAVE paid me correctly and on time (well ok, a little lagging behind) for any maps I've done for them, I know a few who haven't been paid. This has led to hardship for some, no joke. I'd more impressed if it was a list of people they have finally paid than a list of titles.

Huh. Being paid by Chaosium. What must that be like? he ponders....

I have to agree with you, but right now, I would be surprised if Chaosium got more than one of those titles out this year, let alone on schedule going on its record in 2011. Yes, Chaosium published more than a single title in 2011, but only one of them was a new title and not a reprint, and even then that title was material not used in a book published in 2009.

Every other title for Call of Cthulhu in 2011 was a reprint.

Hey Pookie, refresh my memory: what all did they publish in 2011? I can only vaguely remember a few monos... and even then they didn't get out dead tree copies of some of the contest monos -- right?

RPG.net lists the hardcover version of the current rules, which would be the disappointing thirtieth anniversary edition; H.P. Lovecraft's Dreamlands; and Cthulhu Invictus Companion, the only title with any "new" material.

I have the feeling that many of the titles that are listed as having been released in 2010, actually came out in 2011, but that could easily be my memory playing tricks. Or that the releases in 2010 were memorable for less than positive reasons and have stuck in the memory, of which I would suggest, Call of Cthulhu Keeper's Screen is only a highlight.

OK, I just did a quick scan through Chaosium's news articles for last year, and came up with:

Keeper's Screen (reprint)
Invictus Companion (NEW!!!!!!!!!)
BRP hardcover (reprint)
Eldritch Evolutions (fiction)
Curse of the Chthonians (reprint)
CoC 30th Ann Ed (reprint)
BRP Magic (reprint?)
Dreamlands (reprint -- but 2011 or 2012?)

Yeah, I'd say that new 2012 schedule is VERY optimistic.

I recapped the entirety of 2011's Cthulhu gaming on my blog- http://winstonp.word...cthulhu-gaming/ .

Based on that list, I agree with Kevin and his very sensible skepticism.

Cheer up chaps, its the gaming industry.

Plus, as the world's ending in December, a few books released will be all we need!
