Chaosium has been pumping up its selection at RPGNow. From what I can tell, if it's offered at Chaosium's site, its offered at RPGNow too. This means that a lot of the classic Call of Cthulhu adventures are now available. The shame is, except for possibly around Halloween, I have virtually no chance of running this stuff with my extremely hard to corral group.
What I find really interesting is that they are offering the Basic Roleplay Monographs. These are like small print run settings or adventures, such as Agents of the Crown (Victorian) and Aces High (Western). If you are a Basic Roleplay gamer, you options are increased exponentially.
I need to figure out how close the BRP Fantasy rules hew to Runequest 2nd edition. Might be my new Old School backup game...
In any case, I have way to many options to review from Chaosium. Drop a line and let me know what you are interested in me giving a look to. A sense of direction is always nice ;)
