Achtung! Cthulhu started life as a roleplaying setting for the Call of Cthulhu and Savage World games. We first launched few stand alone adventures before running the massive Achtung! Cthulhu Kickstarter which funded 11 books in the range, accessories and a line of miniatures.
In the Achtung! Cthulhu universe, a band of Allied heroes fight the Secret War against the Nazi Black Sun and their rivals Nachtwolfe. Powered with ancient secrets and terribly Mythos allies, Black Sun and Nachtwolfe are on the verge of unleashing terrible weapons upon the Allied forces. You'll be able to follow their exploits through the roleplaying games, boardgames, graphic novels, audio adventures, wargames, card games and much more being released over the coming months.
It all starts with the Achtung! Cthulhu Investigator's and Keeper's Guide which are you gateways to the world of Achtung! Cthulhu
