Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20: Nachtwolfe Trooper

By John Houlihan

Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20 has had a wonderfully successful launch and we’re really glad so many of you have taken the chance to pre-order the game and enjoy the downloadable version of the Player’s Guide

While we await the PDF of the Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20 Gamemaster’s Guide, which is now in final layout,  we promised to release some profiles and stats on adversaries for GMs and agents to start getting their teeth, into via polls on the Achtung! Cthulhu Fan Page

Well, the first poll has concluded and the fans have spoken and so from a choice of Nachtwölfe Trooper, Mi-Go Drone, or Deep One Scout, the clear winner has been the Nachtwölfe Trooper with 45, 13, and 9 votes respectively. 

Here’s the full profile for the Trooper, with some escalation options too. Keep an eye on the Achtung!  Cthulhu fan page for more adversaries appearing soon! 

Nachtwolfe Trooper / NCO/ Lieutenant

Trooper NPCS

These are standard Nachtwölfe infantrymen, not usually enhanced by any scientific means, but trained in the array of advanced weaponry Nachtwölfe has developed from its Blauer Kristall technology. Troopers, NCOs and their junior officers hope to earn their spurs during service in the field. They can then go on to become specialists, ultimately earning the right to wield the force plates of a Stärkemeister
