It is August 1940 and the Netherlands is still reeling from the German Invasion just three months earlier. Queen Wilhelmina and her administration have fled into exile and an uneasy peace settles over the country, as the first embers of resistance begin to smoulder.

From the small Dutch fishing town of Nermegen, reports reach Britain’s Section M of a strange installation being constructed on the nearby Skellen Island. They also confirm the presence of Nachtwölfe, the Night Wolves, a Nazi occult organisation devoted to weird science and eldritch technology, who are said to rival Black Sun itself.

Seizing the opportunity, Section M dispatches a covert team by submarine to learn more about Nachtwölfe’s plans. Once in situ, the agents must contact the fledgling local resistance and gather detailed intelligence. Why are Nachtwölfe here? What happened at the forbidden site near the Arn river? What are these Night Wolves doing at St Olaf’s lighthouse?

The agents must piece together several component parts of this mystery, before finding a way to approach the heavily guarded Skellen Island itself. There, they’ll encounter advanced technology, strange, modified creatures, and face a deranged Nachtwölfe commander, intent on completing a bizarre bio-experiment, before confronting the horrifying truth which lies at the heart of Installation 41 itself.

Overshadowing all, is the malice of an ancient undersea race, who, provoked beyond measure by the unwise machinations of man are now ready to strike—a fearsome foe to contend with in Operation Vanguard, a brand new PDF only mission for the Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20 RPG! 

  • Operation Vanguard is a direct sequel to A Quick Trip to France, the FREE Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20 Quickstart for GM’s looking to run a continuing narrative campaign. 
  • Features a 29-page full colour PDF, with a daring mission for four to five audacious agents set deep behind enemy lines with full enemy profiles, NPCs, maps, and handouts. 
  • Action, investigation and mayhem abound, as players first cross swords with Nachtwölfe and become embroiled with the Deep Ones, a major Mythos power. 
  • Playable with the Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20 Quickstart rules, although the full Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20 core books are recommended.

This 28 page product gets you right into the mission, which is great for any short adventure. It includes some historical background that to me is a must for any real world adventure not based in the current era. The maps and player handouts are good [...]

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.
