Nazis & Nightmares -A swordsmen & skeletons supplement for supernatural World War II gaming

Suggested Price $1.00
In the tradition and using the system of Swordsmen & Skeletons, Nazis & Nightmares is OGL style World War 2 fantasy /science fiction / horror / super heroic roleplaying game, streamlined down to a single piece of paper, plays very similar to the oldest fantasy roleplaying systems, and is compatible with most games and supplements written in the 1980s and earlier. 
Please note that N&N is NOT a complete rpg, and requires Swordsmen and Skeletons to play as a roleplaying system and Milton Bradley's Axis & Allies (TM), any version, or a similar WWII board game to play as and track the campaign.

The World is at War and the Allies are losing.  
Hitler's mad scientific genius, the evil Herr Doktor VerbotenSchtuff has used mad science and twisted sorcery to bring supernatural help to his insane master.  Now killer-cyborgs, gremlins, foo fighters, flying saucers, vampires, the dreaded supernaturally powered SS Ubermensch and other horrors serve the Axis in its dark cause.  Even the incredibly powerful Midgard's Serpent and Fenris Wolf will, on occasion, arise to split battleships and swallow armored divisions whole.  Only your player characters stand in the way of Hitler and his plan of utter world domination.  They must balance the dual missions of raiding the Herr Doktor's deadly Fortress-Laboratories (to increase in power) with those of strategic necessity (to keep the Axis Powers from sweeping across the world) to have any chance of bringing ithis campaign to a triumphal conclusion.
In Nazis & Nightmares, the player characters weaer two hats.  They take the traditional role of of the heroic adventuring PC, but they are also Allied Supreme Command, playing against the GM (who commands the Axis powers) in a game of Axis & Allies (TM).  This game actually creates and advances the campaign, as Allied Supreme Command assigns missions to the PCs based on its strategic needs.  And you MUST THINK STRATEGICALLY TO WIN!
Be advised that this is not a campaign for the weak and meek.  If you can't handle a Total Party Kill, play something else, as, without BOTH excellent military planning and heroic roleplaying, N&N will set you up for exactly that.  
It's up to you, soldier.  Do you have the guts to save the world, or will the Nazi jackboot ultimately crush all?
Please note that Dragon Trove LLCs' supplement New Monsters for Swordsmen & Skeletons is also compatible and very helpful for a Nazis & Nightmares campaign, as it brings in more Axis horrors and more Super-Heroic powers to enrich the campaign.

This is yes about a page long, a little longer with the new edition. However this is a supplement for two separate games that either works off of or works with. It is an expansion swordsmen and skeletons that puts an OSR in a Weird War II setting. [...]

Original electronic
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.
