We don't have many bragging geeklists about awesome orders over here on rpggeek. Unlike over at BGG no-one's trying to impress anyone with their purchases. However, I hope you'll forgive this list which combines two orders in the last two weeks from Chaosium. As an outside US resident, I really appreciate their offer of free shipping worldwide for orders over $125. That's saved about $80 of shipping costs in the last two orders!

So having completed one order, as soon as I realised there was 30% all orders until the start of May I had to place another...and it just arrived this morning! My main purpose then is to salute the quality of the Chaosium works, plus those of all the other designers and publishers.

Please feel free to comment on any of these items - I am the only Call of Cthulhu keeper for my group so I'll be reading it all myself, anyway. Also feel free to suggest other Cthulhu and BRP items I should think about getting next.

This was the item that got me started on my first order. The oriental and English civil War scenarios are the ones that I'm most interested in.

I've been reviewing my way through the "Secrets of" series, so it was good to add this one. New Orleans is such a fascinating mix of cultures on the American mainland. 'Tell me, have you seen the Yellow Sign" has always been a favourite scenario set in this city.

An interesting steampunk setting and scenario for Cthulhu in an alternative colonial America.

Oh, and two T-shirts to complete my first order. The Airfield shirt for my ex-RAF navigator player, the Dairy one for me (well, my sister makes cheese).

Well, time to get the updated BRP rules, especially so I can run....

Chi-powered Martial artists in a semi-mythical Dragon Empire. Build up heroic kung-fu fighters, wade through piles of mooks then face off with awesome foes just like in your favourite Shaw Brothers movie. Looking forward to seeing how that works in the BRP world.

I enjoyed the free downloadable adventure, so it made sense to add in this new source book for HPL's most famous fictional town.

Chick and Chad talked me into this one. I really enjoyed Machine Tractor Station Kharkov-37 and with my two years of school Russian I've always had an interest in going mad, soviet-style.

(In Russia, Cthulhu calls You!).

Another positive review, and a book produced by two of the big hitters from Chaosium. A fine postscript from Keith Herber, who will be sorely missed.

Worlds of Cthulhu 1, 4 and 5 - particularly to get Call of Cathulhu. I had no idea these "magazines" had such great production with perfect binding and great photos and pictures. Lots of bedside reading here.
