Welcome to the CthulhuWiki

The CthulhuWiki (aka 'Wikithulhu') is an information resource relating to 20th Century Horror and Weird Fiction writer H.P. Lovecraft and works inspired by his writings, including the Cthulhu Mythos, the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game by Chaosium and the web site.

Wikis live off user contributions. Something in the forums needs preserving or writing up? Then why not preserve it here? Always wanted to write an entry about your favourite Call of Cthulhu supplement? Now you can.

An article a day? A week? A month? Whatever your timetable, help build the CthulhuWiki into a resource for yourself and other Lovecraft and Call of Cthulhu fans...

Tasks for Everyone!

These are the major TODOs. You can help by completing them yourself!

Parse the Dumping Grounds

The following pages need to be broken down into component pages and categorized properly.

Propose Additional Style Guides

See the Style Guides pages. Go to Template Ideas and post what you think is essential information for each Writer, Artist, Book, Magazine (a list of adventures, dates), Game, Adventure/Scenario (a reference to each book/magazine it shows up in), etc.

Handle Trivial / Confusing Pages

See the list of Category:Confusing Pages for more details.

Consider Sub-Categorization of CoC:Supplements?

See Category:CoC:Supplements and determine if we need a category for Sourcebooks, Rules, Scenario Compilations, Campaign Books, Monographs, or not. Discuss here.
