Now you can get the first episode of the forthcoming Achtung! Cthulhu Audio Adventure series for free! Acthung! Cthulhu is a campaign setting set during World War II in Lovecraft’s Mythos filled universe, published by UK based Modiphius Entertainment.
As the globe is engulfed by eruption of the second world war, storm clouds gather as the nefarious Nazi cult of the Black Sun attempt to harness unclean horrors and strange supernatural entities in their quest to conquer the known world and beyond. Facing them are the brave men and women of Section M and Majestic, secret Allied agencies who harness ancient tomes and arcane magic to thwart the Nazi menace. Welcome to the Secret War, a covert conflict fought in the shadows to preserve the world from horror beyond imagining.
Achtung! Cthulhu is a campaign setting supporting three different rules systems – Call of Cthulhu (sixth edition), Savage Worlds, and Fate. Two of those – Call of Cthulhu and Savage Worlds – are supported in the standard Investigator’s and Keeper’s Guides, with the Fate material in its own book (which combines the two guides).
