Achtung! Cthulhu - FATE Guide to the Secret War
Publisher: Modiphius

Contains some useful techniques and worldbuilding for running Cthulhu near ww2.

That said, the "history" component of this work is definitely more hollywood or pulp than historically accurate.

The Keepers guide almost completely leaves out the eastern front against the Nazis and focuses entirely on the Western allies. The Americanization of WW2 narratives is upsetting to me.

  • This is a good product, but not a great product. It includes a lot of very useful stuff if your interested in running a weird ww2 game in FATE, but it misses out several things that would have been great, like a coherant means of handling armoured vehicles. It's main fault is in the magic section, which attempts to mimic the feel of magic from Call of Cthulhu, and falls flat because of contradictory statements about how magic is handled in game, requiring the entire section to be extensively houseruled to be playable. A lack of attention to detail has hurt an otherwise superb product, and this is I feel a reflection of the fact that the conversion to FATE was not handled as well as it could have been.
  • Still a good product, and still worth the money. But mildly disapointing in places.
