  • Sans-Détour Stripped of Call of Cthulhu Licence


    PoC

    Earlier today Chaosium released a statement announcing the removal of the French Call of Cthulhu licence held by Sans-Détour, a company known for its high production value publications and extensive limited edition RPG sets.

     

    The statement describes how Sans-Détour have failed to pay required licence fees to Chaosium since late 2016, and that Chaosium are now investigating legal action against the RPG publisher. This turn of events obviously puts SD crowd funders (such as Les Masques de Nyarlathotep et Le Jour de la Bête) in severe doubt of fulfilment.

     

    In the same Press Release Chaosium have also indicated that a new French language Call of Cthulhu licensee is in the works to replace Sans-Détour.

     

    Sans-Détour have yet to comment on the matter.

    Ludikbay and Sans Detour declared bankruptcy and did not pay off the debt they owed to both Chaosium and Petersen Games. It was in no way Chaosium's nor Petersen Games's desire to end our deal with Sans Detour. 

     

    In Petersen Games' case, they had accepted delivery of a huge amount of our product first, for which we were never paid. I believe at least some of that product (French edition Cthulhu Wars items) made its way to our backers, but like I said, Petersen Games wasn't paid. If I sound a little bitter, it's with reason.

    Ludikbay declares bankruptcy, but not sans detour (yet), those are both different companies legally, even if the CEO is the same person, and they were working closely together (as ludikbay was contracted to manage stocks and sending orders from sans detour). 

     

    Juste to clarify : I'm French, i own the complete call of cthulhu collection from ESD, both V6 and V7, gaslight, delta green and acthung.  I give them a lot of money in the past 2 years, and i'm truely shocked by what they've done... I just hope they'll find an agreement to deliver the two big campaigns to the backers... After that, i'm done with them...
