Chaosium, Inc.

ChaosiumChaosium, Inc. is the legendary games publisher of 'Call of Cthulhu' located in Hayward, close to San Francisco, California. Aeons-old bonds of friendship, strengthened by the occasional sacrifice and BBQ feast, reach across the Atlantic or Pacific (depending on which way you look) and bind THE KRAKEN to this fine game publishing house. Welcome aboard, Chaosium!

Pegasus Spiele

Pegasus SpielePegasus Spiele is the German publisher of 'Call of Cthulhu' at home in the lovely Hessian town of Friedberg. Located in the vile, rural Hessian back-country Pegasus Spiele can be considered the German equivalent of Chaosium but more sinister and ruthless - as expected from a publishing house and game retailer run by Hessians. Their support for THE KRAKEN is not unexpected since we even share our minions to get the vile jobs done.

Ludik Bazar

Ludik BazarAll hail to Ludik Bazar and it's steadfast owner Piotr Borowski! The fine shop of new, used, discounted and rare games is not only the adventurous supporter and raw material provider of many projects of gaming wonder Grégory Privat but since 2010 official sponsor of THE KRAKEN.

Mad Knight Castings

Mad Knight CastingsWelcome on board, Mad Knight Castings! Andrew Taylor's Mad Knight Castings is the new and already legendary caster of marvellous Glorantha 28mm miniatures. They not only supply gaming superhero Grégory Privat with miniatures for his Rumble in the Rubble game but sponsor Broo miniatures for the Your Chaos Feature Workshop. Of course you can also buy their minatures at THE KRAKEN.

Moon Design

Moon DesignMoon Design , the publisher of 'HeroQuest' and other Gloranthan goodness, is run by the dynamic duo of Jeff Richard and Rick Meints. Founded in 1999, they are on an epic journey to publish more Gloranthan material than any other publisher before them. They and their extremely clever minions currently have the goal of setting Glorantha back 30 years (Ten years ago the goal was setting it back 20 years, but these things, ahem, take time). Next time you see one or both hand them a beer, ask them about Glorantha, and be prepared to be sucked into a game world like no other. Moon Design is a firm believer in the 'game local' philosophy of game conventions. The Kraken is one of their favorites, and they hope all of you enjoy the gaming vacation as much as they do. Needles to say they are proud sponsors of THE KRAKEN.

The Design Mechanism

The Design Mechanism The Design Mechanism is run by Lawrence Whitaker and Pete Nash, the writing team behind many great RuneQuest and Eternal Champion roleplaying games and supplements. They formed the Design Mechanism in 2011 to produce a new range of games and supplements, entering into partnerships with, amongst others, Moon Design Publications and Issaries Inc. They are proud to support THE KRAKEN a gaming event as fine as their games.
