The Call of Cthulhu Miskatonic Repository Convention is a three-day virtual convention celebrating Chaosium’s online collection of user-made content. All games are Call of Cthulhu 7e scenarios, and all of them are either scenarios published on the Miskatonic Repository or being prepared for publishing on the Miskatonic Repository. You can see our prior convention schedule and events here. This year promises to be better than ever, with more games, more panels, and more special guests. Best of all? It's all FREE.

The Miskatonic Repository is an online platform where anyone can publish and sell their content for the Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition roleplaying game by Chaosium. Publishing on the Miskatonic Repository only requires a regular user account on DriveThru RPG. You can publish materials in any language Call of Cthulhu has been published in! You can check out the Miskatonic Repository here.

We are also going to have a wide variety of guests on our panels, including the Chaosium Community Ambassadors Allan Carey, Nick Brooke, and Bridgett Jeffries, as well as Sean Branney (HP Lovecraft Historical Society), Michael Fryda (RPG Imaginings), Oscar Rios (Golden Goblin Press), Lynne Hardy (Associate Editor at Chaosium), and Mike Mason (Call of Cthulhu Creative Director at Chaosium).

For players: Player signups begin on September 17 at 12:00 PM EDT. You will have the chance to play scenarios prepared by their actual author.

For Keepers: Please submit your own scenarios that you have published on the Miskatonic Repository or are preparing for publishing on the Miskatonic Repository. If you do not have such a scenario, please feel free to run anything published on the Miskatonic Repository! Anything is fair game! Please use the new schedule system SUBMISSION BUTTON button in the right-hand side of this page. Please see event time slots below.

Discord will be used as the main engine for communication and for playing games. This is so we can organize the con and keep Keepers on time so the next group can use their respective slots. You can join via this link HERE.

For Keepers: Game submissions open on August 13, 2021 and close at 11:59 EDT on September 12, 2021. Submissions will be limited to scenarios on the Miskatonic Repository or being prepare for submission to the Miskatonic Repository, and all game systems should use the Call of Cthulhu 7e rules. Please schedule games in the assigned time blocks, as we need to keep online play spaces going and organized. We are an international convention, but due to organizational capacity, we are based in United States Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) (UTC−04:00). If it is 4PM Pacific, then it is 6PM CDT, and 7PM EDT as an example. Please convert any times into your local time here.

Everyone that attends agrees to the Code of Conduct found HERE.
