Hello,

First i like the idea of a WWII campaign and the book is good.
One thing disturb me. The characters jump in hostile territory without an appointment with local resistance.
It is very strange for me, the PC can not make radio contact with the resistance before ?

How do you explain it in your sessions ?

Alhough Czech born Frantisek Moravec has been in touch with the resistance it's still the early stages of the war, technically Great Britain isn't even at war yet so I think it's easy for the Keeper/GM to state that they've not been able to get in touch with the local resistance and with the tales coming out it's vital they get in there without any further wait

Hi, I've downloaded 3 Kings, very much like what I see and am keen to start up a game as soon as possible.

I wondered, however, if there are any Achtung Cthulhu specific character sheets. I suppose I could use the modern or 1920s sheets from the rule book but it would be nice to have something more period specific.

Ideally I'd like to run the campaign without the players initially being aware that Cthulhu was involved, so it would be good if there were sheets just marked "Zero Point" or something equivalent and not mentioning the big guy at all.

So, any plans for specific or generic character sheets?

Cheers

Hi we're working on some sheets at the moment - they take a little while to get right but shouldn't be too long

This post contains info that's Keepers only, I'm going to try to hide it behind a tag, but I can't guarantee it'll work...

[spoiler]Players planning for Episode 4 are bound to ask Angel how he got himself in and then everyone out previously. So, how do people think he did it? Everything looks _very_ secure.[/spoiler]

I was wondering what sort of rank your Savage Worlds characters should be if you are making your own for Three Kings rather than using the pregenerated ones. I couldn't see it listed anywhere in the PDF.

Hi David they can be starting characters but depending how the GM plays the missions you can give them more abilities/ranks if you like and beef up the encounters

About to run the first adventure - using Realms of Cthulhu/Savae Worlds - this weekend, and I was wondering if anyone had ideas for an additional PC (I have 5 players)?
I was thinking some sort of medical doctor at this stage... but I'm open to other suggestions (or ideas from people more experienced with SW about how best to create such a character).

Also Chris, are the other pregen characters starting characters, or do I need to beef an additional pre-gen up a bit (and if I do, what do you suggest)?

Looking forward to finally running this!

Hi yes they're just starting characters but feel free to tweak things if you think the newbie is missing something important

Thanks! I've got a thread on rpg.net where I'm discussing as well:
http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?680985-Achtung-Cthulhu!-Additional-Savage-Worlds-pre-gen-for-Three-Kings

I did have another question - the background and fonts used for the half-page "character sheets" - are those available anywhere? I'd like to make the 5th character look as similar as possible to the others...

Ok, so I managed to grab the background and font names from the PDF, and download the fonts (yay for publisher's using freely available fonts!), and I've produced a nice fancy version in the same format as the original pre-gens.
I've also produced an updated (to SW Deluxe rules and including more actions) AC! themed Combat Survival Guide. These use art which presumably you have copyright on though Chris, so I was wondering if I could get permission to share (as a fan made resource)?

Out of curiosity, what were the fonts used?

CraigBishell said Apr 02, 2013 20:18:32
The heading font on the character sheets is "typical writer" (the type writer type one):
http://www.fontspace.com/carl-johanson/typical-writer

The main body text is "Goudy Sans LT Book".

The first definitely has a free licence, but I can't find any licence information on the second so I won't provide a link (the first page of google hits is for freely downloadable versions)...

Cool, thanks! I eventually found the license site for Goudy Sans Book; it's on fonts.com for $19.99, which is quite reasonable for a decent font.
