In Assault on the Mountains of Madness, Achtung! Cthulhu players will follow in the snowy footsteps of the Pabodie expedition from HP Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness and take part in an epic, full-blooded campaign at the far flung ends of the earth.
Inside you'll discover the secret history of the final days of World War Two, when the Allies join forces with the Soviets to battle the Third Reich in the most dangerous theatre of war yet... the snowy plains, icy mountains, and subterranean tunnels of Antarctica.
Together, your brave soldiers must battle Nazis, occult conspiracies, monstrous foes and ancient horrors, as well as the very land itself. At stake is both your own survival, and the very fate of the world itself!
