Licensee Spotlight: Modiphius Entertainment

Achtung! Cthulhu Kickstarter CampaignLondon-based Modiphius Entertainment has scored some big name licenses recently for use with their own in-house 2d20 system, but Savage Worlds has always been a big part of Modiphius’ story.

In a far flung future, in a solar system riven by corporate greed and living under the threat of the ominous Dark Legion, the epic Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition for Savage Worlds has won a host of admirers for its dark, diesel-punk visions.

Mutant Chronicles from Modiphius Entertainment

Achtung! Cthulhu is where the tentacled terrors of HP Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos collide with the horrors and heroism of World War 2 in a heady mix of two-fisted pulp and historical adventure.  Both the Achtung! Cthulhu’s Keeper’s Guide and Investigator’s Guide are dual-statted for Savage Worlds, as are classic long-form campaigns like Assault on the Mountains of Madness, one-off adventures like The Trellborg Monstrosities, and the recent campaign release Zero Point: Code of Honour is due a Savage Worlds version at the end of January.

Achtung! Cthulhu’s ongoing FREE Living Campaign is also made for Savage Worlds, so there’s plenty to explore in this intriguing universe.
