Hello world! Goodbye World!

We have a weekly game night that comprises of three adults (apparently) and one teenager (just about) with a slightly unhealthy obsession with zombie and cthulhu related games... to date we've been sticking to quick, out of the box games like Fluxx, Zombies!!! and Munchkin. Recently D asked what a proper roleplaying game was like... he's been playing Skyrim a lot and had heard us talking about the various exploits we've had in rpgs in the past, so we've decided to give it a go.

While looking around for a system to start with, I came across the awesome looking Achtung! Cthulhu kickstarter from Modiphius and their existing line of products on RPGNow. What could be better than Cthulhu investigations in WW2? The stretch goals that have been hit so far are making this one a no-brainer to follow, plus there is a range of miniatures coming to accompany the campaign, which appeals to the painter in me too.

Given that the Kickstarter books aren't due until September time, we'll be starting with the Three Kings book and moving onto the second part of the Zero Point campaign using the Savage Worlds system as it seems to have a lot of scope and support for more widespread horror elements, not just Cthulhu.

I suspect with me in charge it's going to start going a bit Hellboy/Dust Warfare with weird tech and nazi cults appearing all over the place, so I thought it might be fun to start tracking what we do and how our exploits into a mythos infused 1940s proceed...
