Nazi Cults, Ancient Artifacts, Secret Bases, Dauntless Heroes, and Horrors Beyond Comprehension in this Pacy, Pulp—Influenced World War II Roleplaying Extravaganza!
“Each and every man under my command owes me one hundred Nazi scalps!” – Lt. Aldo Raine
London, UK (August 17, 2021) — Today, tabletop RPG gurus Modiphius Entertainment announce the full range of Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20, books, dice, and accessories will start shipping from the Modiphius Website on September 28, 2021, with all print customers receiving final digital versions from today! Retail editions are expected to follow in October and November from your friendly local game store.
This heart-pounding 2d20 pulp adventure setting and rulebooks pits the brave men and women of Britain’s Section M, their dauntless counterparts in United States’ Majestic, and the tenacious underdogs of the French Resistance — against the terrifying menace of the Nazi Black Sun cult and nameless ancient evils from beyond the stars!
Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20 — originally created by Modiphius founder Chris Birch, and developed by narrative designer and Cthulhu author John Houlihan and respected game designer Nathan Dowdell (Conan, Star Trek, John Carter, Dishonored, Fallout, and Dune RPGs) — launches with a full roster of core books, bundles, and accessories to give you a chance to battle Nazi occultists and elder gods in a thrilling cinematic World War II adventure which promises a rollicking tabletop ride.
Since the Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20 pre-order launched in March, Modiphius has released a regular roster of monthly missions including Operation Vanguard, Under the Gun, Seventh Inning Slaughter, and Operation Falling Crystal, which have already received rave reviews. These single missions will soon be joined by two more epic campaigns: Shadows of Atlantis and Forest of Fear in 2022.
Battle fearsome Black Sun troopers who utilize ancient magics and incantations to summon extra-dimensional monsters! Use good ol’ fashioned teamwork and bullets to stop the technological prowess of the terrifying Nachtwölfe – the Night Wolves – and their powerful wunderwaffen! Save the world from the Nazis and strange alien races that live amongst us — like the Deep Ones, Mi-Go, and nameless horrors from unspeakable realms! All this from the comfort and (relative) safety of your tabletop.
“Achtung! Cthulhu is our most beloved in-house RPG here at Modiphius,” said John Houlihan, current Achtung! Cthulhu overlord at Modiphius Entertainment. “We’ve created an amazing, cinematic, pulp-influenced world of World War II action and adventure here which will thrill fans of Indiana Jones, Hellboy, and Overlord and we cannot wait for players to dive in and experience it for themselves. No other game lets you punch so much evil – from Nazis to Mythos monsters to Elder Gods – in the face and that’s guaranteed!”
