Arkham Horror revisited at Yog-Sothoth

Our friends over at Yog-Sothoth have scored in a major way: the site has just been allowed to post Return to Arkham Horror, the previously unpublished supplement for the classic Arkham Horror board game. Written by Keith Herber and Richard Launius, the 22-page PDF contains everything Yog-Sothoth could scrape together for the supplement, including “player mats, new cards, counters, dimensions, rules and the second edition ‘Arkham Gazette’.” Chaosium still plans a 15th anniversary version of Arkham Horror, tentatively set for release this June. I’m sure the PDF supplement will whet gamers’ appetites for more Arkham mayhem.
[EDIT: Now I’m hearing that Chaosium no longer has the rights to produce Arkham Horror, and hasn’t for years. According to one source, the game will be produced by another company later this year. Why the game is still listed as “Upcoming” on Chaosium’s website, I dunno.]

EDIT 5/22/05: Over a year has passed, and ownership issues seem to have been resolved again. See the story for details.
