Modiphius has released a new pre-made adventure for Achtung! Cthulhu titled Zero Point – Code of Honour.

Istanbul in 1942 is a neutral city, packed with spies. Everyone’s here – the Nazis, the Soviets, the Brits and the Yanks, the Japanese and a host of other nations, all waging a deadly war of wits against a backdrop of cocktail bars and polite smiles. From the infamous Snake Pit in the Park Hotel, to the jazz clubs and fashionable restaurants of Istiklal Avenue, to the warrens of alleys around the spires and mosques of Fatih and Sultanahmet, it’s a city in ferment. While Turkey desperately tries to stay out of the war, the Führer’s armies mass less than a hundred miles away.

But that’s not all. Something even more terrifying is going on beneath the ancient streets of the Sublime Porte. Meddling forces have unearthed an ancient treasure, setting in motion plans centuries old which threaten to change the course of the whole war – and even the world!

Code of Honour: Zero Point 1942 is a multi-session Achtung Cthulhu adventure with a difference. It features:

  • descriptions and personalities of Istanbul in 1942
  • a detailed map of wartime Istanbul
  • rules for tradecraft and spying
  • secrets and mysteries of Istanbul, including new grimoires
  • a multi-session adventure of lethal conspiracy

Can you fathom the mystery of Code of Honour, and win this deadly battle in the secret war?

Modiphius has released their newest Lovecraftian supplement for, and in fact the climax for, Achtung! Cthulhu Secret War Campaign.

In Assault on the Mountains of Madness, Achtung! Cthulhu players will follow in the snowy footsteps of the Pabodie expedition from HP Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness and take part in an epic, full-blooded campaign at the far flung ends of the earth.

Inside you’ll discover the secret history of the final days of World War Two, when the Allies join forces with the Soviets to battle the Third Reich in the most dangerous theatre of war yet… the snowy plains, icy mountains, and subterranean tunnels of Antarctica.

Together, your brave soldiers must battle Nazis, occult conspiracies, monstrous foes and ancient horrors, as well as the very land itself. At stake is both your own survival, and the very fate of the world itself!

Assault on the Mountains of Madness is a vast 248 page colour hardback campaign with a writing team led by acclaimed author Jason Durall and featuring Bill Bodden, Alex Bund, Alex Flagg and Paul Fricker. It boasts a wealth of fantastic cover and interior art from some of Modiphius’ finest illustrators like Dim Martin, Pierre Droal and Yap Kun Rong.

It’s designed to be the climax to the entire Achtung! Cthulhu Secret War campaign and will send your investigators on adventure to one of the most remote places on earth, where they’ll face enemies from both this world and aeons past. Achtung! Cthulhu fans are advised not to miss this spectacular conclusion to the Secret War!
