Petersen Games

Petersen EntertainmentPetersen Games is the game publisher founded and run by none other than Sandy Petersen himself. Petersen Games' first game is the smashing Kickstarter board game hit 'Cthulhu Wars'. It would be unthinkable for them to miss supporting THE KRAKEN.

MODIPHIUS Entertainment

Modiphius EntertainmentModiphius are the publisher of the terrifying 'Achtung! Cthulhu' roleplaying game setting for 'Call of Cthulhu' and 'Savage Worlds' as well as 'Mutant Chronicles' and much more. They have seen great portents in the stars and so humbly support the great KRAKEN!

The Design Mechanism

The Design Mechanism The Design Mechanism is the publisher of the stunning 'RuneQuest 6' and the upcoming 'RuneQuest: Adventures in Glorantha'. They are proud to support THE KRAKEN a gaming event as fine as their games.


ChaosiumChaosium is the legendary games publisher of 'Call of Cthulhu', 'RuneQuest' and 'HeroQuest'. Aeons-old bonds of friendship, strengthened by the occasional sacrifice and feast, reach across the Atlantic or Pacific (depending on which way you look) and bind THE KRAKEN to this fine game publishing house and the other way around. The folk at Chaosium believe in the 'game local' philosophy of gaming events. THE KRAKEN is one of their favorite events, and they hope all of you enjoy the gaming retreat as much as they do. Needless to say they are proud friends of THE KRAKEN.

Editions Sans Detour

Editions Sans DetourEditions Sans Detour is the French publisher of 'Call of Cthulhu' and boy is their stuff nifty, pretty and cool. We are honored to include this illustrious publishing house to the sponsor list of THE KRAKEN.

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.
