If you haven’t heard about this KickStarter yet either through other posts or podcast episodes then you really haven’t been paying attention. Achtung! Cthulhu mixes two delicious ingredients, namely Cthulhu and Nazis, in a World War II Call of Cthulhu/Savage Worlds campaign. As you would expect with such a great idea the KickStarter is going swimmingly, so well in fact that some of the stretch goals are getting pretty amazing. Right now they are in the midst of unlocking an ‘At the Mountains of Madness‘ adventure which is sure to chill the blood.
With this “Modiphius plans to create a stunning full colour 248 page hardback if the goals are met. Assault on the Mountains of Madness builds on the legacy of HP Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness and promises to reveal more of the continent (than the hapless investigators are likely to want), along with a treasure trove of cool accessories to bring the world to life.” If you have ever read Lovecraft’s book then you are most likely already excited beyond words. If you haven’t read it you should give it a shot. It’s a short book and one of Lovecraft’s very best works.
The art for this book also looks great (as seen below) and up to the usual production standards of Modiphius as seen in their Zero Point campaign. Head over to the KickStarter page for more information on this adventure and the general setting.
“It is absolutely necessary, for the peace and safety of mankind, that some of earth’s dark, dead corners and unplumbed depths be left alone; lest sleeping abnormalities wake to resurgent life, and blasphemously surviving nightmares squirm and splash out of their black lairs to newer and wider conquests.” ― H.P. Lovecraft, At the Mountains of Madness.
