More About Achtung! Cthulhu

Discover the secret history of World War Two - stories of the amazing heroism which struggled to overthrow a nightmare alliance of science and the occult, of frightening inhuman conspiracies from the depths of time, and the unbelievable war machines which were the product of Nazi scientific genius - and how close we all came to a slithering end!

Play a huge range of classic wartime heroes such as Russian political officers, German U-Boat commanders, British commandoes, RAF pilots, US rangers, Washington investigators, London journalists, Hollywood starlets, and resistance fighters from all across Europe, who must all unite in the battle against the darker side of World War Two. Play a full campaign leading from the opening shots of the War in 1939, through intrigue and adventure in Occupied Europe, the siege of Berlin in 1945, and finally the cold wastes of Antarctica in 1946!

Featuring stunning art by illustrator Dim Martin and maps by Michal E Cross, each Achtung! Cthulhu release will be packed full of evocative and inspirational scenes and is designed to be a totally standalone product letting you jump right in to tentacle fueled wartime adventures! 

Written for the popular Call of Cthulhu, Savage Worlds, Trail of Cthulhu and PDQ roleplaying systems, Achtung! Cthulhu will thrust your characters in to the midst of a dark and desperate struggle, as Cthulhu's minions take advantage of the chaos wrought by the Third Reich to topple civilization! The massive world-spanning Achtung! Cthulhu setting features occult conspiracies, terrifying Nazi war machines, and an ancient evil so powerful that it threatens to tear the world apart!

I guess sales didn't go well, as I can't find part 3 of the campaign. Is there an official (and hopefully easy) way to convert the BRP/Savage Worlds edition to PDQ?
I've played part 1 of the campaign with Savage Worlds and PDQ rules and our group prefers PDQ.

It's actually been out for a while :-)
There's no official conversion method for PDQ but I've found it easy to improvise

Thanks for your quick reply! :-)
I should have phrased it more clearly, I guess. I knew of the Savage Worlds version of part 3, but was looking specifically for the PDQ version. My comment of the sales not having gone well was referring to the PDQ branch of Achtung Cthulhu only.
Anyway, thanks for pointing me to it, I guess I'll have a look at both versions of part 1 again and see how to best convert the stats to PDQ.

At the moment just adventure conversions if sales go well.

Will we ultimately see also a PDQ version of the Investigator and Keeper Guides?

Hi Robert this is a separate release to the Savage Worlds and Call of Cthulhu versions. This is just for those who like the PDQ System.

Does this break the compatibility with Savage Worlds? I am a Savage Worlds GM and I own the bundle.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
