Of course, we’ll have stock of all your C7 favourites on the booth – Doctor Who Time Clash, Dalek Dice, Doctor Who Card Game, One Ring, Adventures in Middle-earth, Lone Wolf Adventure Game and more.

A note on web orders
Since it's all available hands on deck for this grandest of shows, all non-US web store orders won’t ship out until we've returned from Essen next week; however, PDF links will still be sent as normal. Orders within the US will not be affected. Thank you for your patience!

See you in Deutschland!


Here's a sneak-peek at the gorgeous cover by Ralph Horsley.

Terror of the Darklords is designed to take Players through a series of interconnected adventures in which they will uncover a nefarious plan to crush Sommerlund. With teamwork, a little luck, and a great deal of stealth and cunning, all of the participating Kai might just survive to reach the climactic ending and become fully fledged Kai Masters.

The campaign is comprised of five separate but sequential adventures, each one a mission in its own right:
Adventure 1 – Something Wicked This Way Comes

The first indications of a possible invasion of Sommerlund are realised. The Kai must choose between a doomed rescue attempt or risking their lives to save a village of innocent woodsmen from destruction.

Adventure 2 – Treachery in Toran

Sent to track down a traitor, the party must pursue their kidnapped Kai Master across the reaches of Northern Sommerlund. Along the way they uncover a trail of evil...

Adventure 3 – Confrontation in Cloeasia

The Kai must pursue the agents of evil from Toran to the town of Kadan. Their overland route is beset with peril, challenges that threaten to end both their desperate race and their lives.

Adventure 4 – A Situation in V’Ka

Following hot on its heels, the Kai Lords track their quarry to V’Ka, the swamp fortress of the Gourgaz. Here an army of Swamp Giaks is being mustered in preparation for the invasion of Sommerlund!

Adventure 5 – Restless Ghosts of Maaken

The Kai arrive at the ruined city of Maaken, on the edge of the forbidding Maakengorge. They must overcome a deadly test and make the ultimate sacrifice. Only then can the evil plan of their foul enemies be thwarted, Vashna returned to his grave, and Sommerlund saved from devastation!

Only the bravest and truest of heart can hope to triumph over evil. Get ready for the greatest campaign of your lives.

For Sommerlund and the Kai!

Written by Joe Dever, August Hahn, Vincent Lazzari, Pete Nash and Ken Spencer.

In US and UK stores now - Cthulhu Tales!

In relating the circumstances which have led to my confinement within this refuge for the demented, I am aware that my present position will create a natural doubt of the authenticity of my narrative. – The Tomb, by H.P. Lovecraft

The dawn of the 20th century. New England, America; Lovecraft country.

Home to university libraries filled with worm-eaten tomes, legend-haunted towns populated with degenerate locals and their rustic superstitions, Cyclopean ruins from long-forgotten aeons, and the disquieting glimpses of things from beyond…

You are the unwilling guests of an antiquated sanatorium, perhaps the infamous Arkham Sanatorium, or maybe the Danvers State Asylum.

Your only hope of escape is to convince your fellow inmates, and perhaps yourself, that you do not belong here. And so you begin to explain the sinister series of events that led to your unjust incarceration.

Unfortunately, your memories are populated by the stuff of nightmares…

In Cthulhu Tales, each player tells their story using a hand of Story cards. The other players play Hazard cards to disrupt and darken the tale. In the course of the game, the narrators receive Treatment tokens, representing the misguided therapies and medication administered to them by the terrifying medical staff.

When everyone has told their tale, the game is over. Count up each player’s Treatment tokens and the player who underwent the least therapies is the winner.

Designed by Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi, the designers behind award-winning games such as The One Ring Roleplaying Game, Hobbit Tales, The War of the Ring and many more, Cthulhu Tales brings horrifying and darkly humorous story telling to your gaming table.

Inside the box you'll find:

• 132 beautifully sinister and disquieting, large-format playing cards with artwork from the C7 art team Scott Purdy, Jon Hodgson and Sam Manley
• A board to guide your tale-telling
• A 16-page full colour rulebook
• A 12 sided die, or perhaps if the stars are right, a unique Cthulhu Tales 12-sided die
• A set of Treatment tokens


We’re recruiting an Office Assistant for our Swindon, UK headquarters.

This is a permanent job role based in Swindon and is unsuited to remote workers. Applicants are invited to apply with a cover letter and CV through the linked website.
