Modiphius Previews Achtung! Cthulhu Quickstart Guide

Achtung! Cthulhu, the popular alternate-history RPG setting of Nazis and Great Old Ones is coming to 2d20, Modiphius' popular game system. A Quickstart Guide is soon to be available, but Modiphius couldn't contain themselves and wanted to give everyone a look into what this new guide will be like.

From the post:

As January, always the longest month of the year, draws to a close, we’re edging ever closer to the long awaited advent of the Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20 Quickstart, your first chance to get your hands on the 2d20 version of the game. It’s been a while coming and we can’t wait to share with you the first proper look at the new incarnation of Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20. Here’s a quick guide to what you can expect.

The Intro

The Quickstart opens with an explanation of Achtung! Cthulhu itself. One of the aims of the new system is to attract new players to the setting and this section details how the game came into being and comes with a personal introduction from creator Chris Birch. Following this is a breakdown of the four main human factions: the Allies’ brave Section M and dauntless Majestic, and the Nazi villains, Black Sun and Nachtwolfe. By the time you’ve read this, you’ll have the complete backstory on how the Secret War began!
