Modiphius > Achtung! Cthulhu

Which system do you use?

posted Jun 19, 2015 06:55:36 by Paul Smith
I'm contemplating starting a session with some friends. Some of them have roleplayed before, others havn't. I have been contemplating Savage Worlds as the system of choice, but was wondering what you all use as I've not played any of the systems before, let alone run a game with them?

Has anyone tried A!C with CoC 7 and if so, what changes did you need to make?

Not with CoC.

I have played the two adventures that they put out for Trail of Cthulhu. And I have played the FATE version a bit.

I'll admit I was pretty disappointed when they chose not to put out a full Investigators/Keepers Guide for ToC.

I am yet to run a game of A!C, but the intention is to use Savage Worlds as I'm more familiar with that system.

I'm using trail of cthulhu for my setting, but i don't know how to convert backgrounds from Achtung! Cthulhu to gumshoe. is their a link for resources on backgrounds and wartime drives or do i have to create the material on my own?

We've used Savage Worlds in our first try of Achtung Cthulhu, as we got tired of waiting for CoC 7, and after using it, I think it was a better choice anyway. Achtung is more combat-oriented than CoC games typically are (at least the ones I've played in), which makes it a little less lethal to use Savage Worlds. The quick-and-dirty combat system of SW also propels the action better than I believe CoC would and the SW system makes the PCs a little tougher heroes, which seems necessary.

Savage Worlds and I can't wait to see Elder Godlike printed :) I run a game mixing Super-heroes, Time Trave (Quantum leap like, the pcs are travelling in another bodies) and the Cthulhu genre, and I was thinking of World war 2 for several plots.
Achtung ! Cthulhu will do the job. Savage Worlds will make the fun.
Coc isn't pulpy enough...
