Cubicle 7 Granted Call of Cthulhu and Basic Roleplaying Licenses

By on 15 July 2009

Cubicle 7 Entertainment is pleased to announce that we have signed two licenses with Chaosium Inc in regards to their CALL OF CTHULHU and BASIC ROLEPLAYING game lines.

The first license covers the creation and publication of CALL OF CTHULHU adventures and supplements. The first of these is CTHULHU BRITANNICA which is released in August. This new collection of horror scenarios features five tales of horror and the weird, set within the green and pleasant land of England. Each scenario focuses upon a different time period, from the streets of Victorian London to the far future when End is almost nigh. Although each scenario can be played as part of an existing campaign, they also come with a set of pre-generated player characters, allowing all to be played and run with the minimum of effort. Our CTHULHU BRITANNICA series then continues with FOLKLORE in November. This sourcebook gives life to strange tales and strange places where myth meets mythos in Britain’s darkest corners.

Cubicle 7 have also signed a license for the BASIC ROLEPLAYING system which is being used to developed a brand new game based upon the works of a popular award-winning author which we will announcing later in the year.

“We’re delighted to be publishing material for Call of Cthulhu. One of our long-held ambitions is to contribute to this fantastic game,” said Dominic McDowall-Thomas of Cubicle 7. “We’re also very excited to be able to use the Basic Roleplaying system for our upcoming unannounced licensed game – it’s a perfect fit.”

“We’ve known Angus Abranson for well over a decade and long desired to work together with him on something. Now he’s teamed up with Dominic, and formed Cubicle 7 Entertainment, it gives Chaosium great pleasure to award them licenses to publish supplements for Call of Cthulhu as well as BRP books. We’re looking forward to a long and successful relationship and many swell Chaosium licensed books to come!” added Dustin Wright of Chaosium.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
