“Achtung! Cthulhu” Setting for Call of Cthulhu and Savage Worlds Setting Released!


It’s not every day that I get to write this, so give me a moment to enjoy the following words put together:

World War 2 Cthulhu RPG sourcebooks.

The just feels good to type!

These words have been brought to us by Modiphius, the company putting out the new “Achtung! Cthulhu” sourcebooks for both the Call of Cthulhu and the Savage Worlds settings, the latter care of the Realms of Cthulhu setting. This setting covers the globe, promising to give us a mix of all things World War 2 with a healthy dose of the surreal that can only be brought when our favorite tentacled monster is mentioned. As a huge fan of both systems, this has a lot of potential, both for atmosphere and character development as well as everyone’s favorite pastime, shooting Nazis and horrors from beyond.

Right now, they have the first sourcebook, Zero Point Part 1 – Three Kings on sale at RPG Now for Call of Cthulhu, and a bundle with the Realm of Cthulhu sourcebook for $15! You can find out more at their website, where they are planning on hosting their growing community, as well as free downloads and information on all things “Achtung! Cthulhu”!
