Memories of a Past Better Left Forgotten ...

A terrifying World War Two Campaign, fully compatible with the Call of Cthulhu, Sixth Edition and Savage Worlds roleplaying games.

Discover the secret history of the earliest days of the war: a tale of murder, greed, and deceit, where forbidden knowledge is more highly prized than a man’s life (or his sanity); the quest for an ancient artefact of immense power; the race against the occult forces of the German High Command and even against time itself ...

-- Alexander Towton, Section M

Shadows of Atlantis adds a new dimension to the Secret War, including:

  • A multi-part adventure campaign that takes your investigators to the four corners of the Earth and beyond
  • The forgotten story of one of the world’s most fascinating lost ancient civilisations: Atlantis
  • Four different teams of pregenerated characters, allowing you to experience the action from a different viewpoint in each theatre
  • New hideous creatures, terrifying threats, and unwholesome knowledge

In fact, a whole dossier’s worth of useful historical and fantastical information to help you save the world from an ancient threat from beyond space and time.
