Achtung! Cthulhu is packed full of heroes, but there are six individuals who have well and truly seized their moment; six drawn in to the chaos of the Secret War, whose very actions are instrumental in giving Section M, Majestic and the Allies a fighting chance against the insidious power of The Order of the Black Sun and Nachtwolfe's. As the Third Reich's war machine prepares to conquer the world and Cthulhus minions work to undermine all of humanity, these few inspire a host of other courageous souls to rise up in defiance!
The iconic heroes of Achtung! Cthulhu detailed herein Professor Richard Deadman, Captain Eric Badger Harris, Ariane Dubois, Natalya Petrova and Corporal Akhee The Eye Singhs are the subject of many of the pictures, comments and short stories found throughout the books, games and miniatures. This dossier presents a more formal introduction to these notable characters. In 2014 we will be launching the official Secret War Campaign that will let you take these heroes (or those of your own invention) from their very human roots right through the most famous missions of Section M and Majestic, to a climatic finale in the Achtung! Cthulhu universe. The Secret War Campaign will also include new rules and suggestions for running truly epic adventures against the worst the Third Reich and Cthulhu can muster.
The history of mankind is littered with the stories of heroes: those whose lives intersected at some defining moment some event that triggered a deep determination, steely courage or fearless action. These precious few souls are often badly equipped, poorly trained or just in the wrong place at the wrong time but some higher force, some act of fate, has given their star a chance to burn brightly, to achieve the things we mere mortals can only dream of.
But do not so readily desire the burning fire the terrible price these mortals pay to be ranked among the heroes for they rarely emerge unscathed, carrying with them forever mental scars, physical wounds or memories of such terrible things.
