Mythos secrets in Dover - a Mephisto review

Under the gun

The adventure Under the gun has already been published as a starter adventure for the version of Achtung! Cthulhu based on the rules of the 7th edition of Cthulhu. There is now a new edition as part of the 2d20 version of Achtung! Cthulhu. The story remains the same: the players' agents are called to Dover because mysterious caves have been found in the chalk cliffs during the building of defenses against an invasion by the Germans. The player characters first have to deal with the traumatized individuals who have been exploring these caves. After that, they travel to the scene of the mysterious find itself. Here, a battle quickly ensues with several parties having their own interests in the mythos background of this place.

Under the gun is a fitting introductory adventure that highlights two central aspects of the game: on the one hand, gathering clues and questioning people - that is, classic investigative work - and on the other hand, what is even more prominent in Achtung! Cthulhu: the fight against the powers of mythos. As an introduction to the world of Achtung! Cthulhu for the 2d20 system Under the gun is well suited. Even layout and presentation have been enhanced compared to the previous edition.

Another short easy to run adventure for the world of Achtung! Cthulhu. The premise gets the characters started right away and the investigation and action are quick paced. The NPCs are clearly described and a page of handouts to print gives the players something tangible to make the session feel even more real. Also included is a printer friendly version of the adventure for those who prefer to run a session with paper instead of computer. All in all, it's a solid addition to the growing list of adventres for this setting.

This adventure can be played in one session. Easy to use as an intro adventure but it is set in mid 1940 so depending on where your campaign is set you might need to do a little reworking. The adventure layout is similar to the other adventure for this game. The maps are helpful and well done. I like how the npc stat info is layed out and easy to use for a game master. One thing that I like that you do not much is a dedicated handout section is included for a game master to use for player handouts. Another thing I liked was the further adventure/campaign ideas given at the end of the adventure. If you know some british folklore or do a litlte research those ideas can be developed with little effort. The only negative comment I have is that the adventure seemed short compared to the last one. I felt like the adventure needed another part or needed to add more to another part.
