Sympathy for the Devil !


This Kickstarter campaign was the occasion for me to see one of my creations come to life: the FFI deck with eight separate cards to transform it into an Investigators deck for Shadows over Normandie.

Moreover, the Heroes of Normandie 2.0 decks are more than ever compatible with Shadows over Normandie since they have the same format (50 cards with an alternative bonus on the side of the cards). It will now also be possible to create battles between regular army units, unaware of the existence of the Mythos and the Secret War, against factions of Shadows over Normandie. The history of Achtung! Cthulhu offers stories of combat between “normal” soldiers who suddenly find themselves confronted with the Mythos without being psychologically prepared for it and with no esoteric knowledge or equipment to fight the supernatural forces unleashed against them. Participation in this Kickstarter campaign is the perfect opportunity for Shadows over Normandie fans to explore other facets of the Achtung! Cthulhu universe and I’m hopeful that I can come up with some story ideas if the community supports the concept.

Having found the idea of converting Heroes of Normandie decks into Shadows over Normandie decks not so bad, Yann proposed me to create the same thing for all the historical decks, those of Heroes of Normandie but also those of Heroes of Stalingrad. I obviously jumped at the opportunity to bring even more variety to our favorite game. So I’ve created six cards per deck for a total of 30 cards, representing six new factions (the German cards for the decks of Heroes of Normandie and Heroes of Stalingrad will be the same, with the backsides corresponding to the game for which they are intended). A few completely new cards have slipped into this deck as well, but most of them are already existing cards but in new combinations giving each deck unique gameplay.

In Achtung! Cthulhu, the alignment of the different factions is not necessarily mirrored by what we typically expect of a WW2-era nation. The most famous factions (Majestic, Section M, Black Sun) tend to position their allies as opponents of the Mythos and the Black Sun as users of esoteric forces. However, the Achtung! Cthulhu universe lacks generalizations and also offers Investigators from the German army or American or British units drowned by Cults of the Dark Gods.

It’s this aspect of the universe that I wanted to offer you in this Kickstarter campaign. This is what we have in mind: German Investigators, American King in Yellow worshipers, British sorcerers or a cult of bloodthirsty Russian madmen. You dreamed of having Americans against British or Germans against Germans? This conversion set of 30 cards for Heroes of Normandie and Heroes of Stalingrad decks should fulfill all your hopes.

In summary, by participating in this campaign you will have the choice between:

  • 6 historical military factions that don’t know the Mythos,
  • 6 pure Shadows over Normandie factions,
  • 4 intermediate factions.

We intend to offer you this card pack as an Add-On.

But we will only do so if you are interested because we cannot afford to make bad choices that would negatively impact our cash flow.

The price of this extension could be 10 euros.

So I’ll leave it up to you to tell us what you think and if you are interested. Depending on your answers, we will open this KS option or not. The ball is in your court!!!

  7. avatar 52. Edward Covarrubias said :

    I would be interested. I think that would make the game even more fun.

  8. avatar 51. Petz said :

    Bonjour, excellent idée! Je viens de backer le KS en « full support » et prendrai également ce deck en add-on si vous le proposez. Prenez bien soin de vous!

  9. avatar 50. Laira said :

    No. I would like the scheduled HoBR to go first, please.
    Please focus your attention on delivering the promised HoBR expansions and developing the promised HoBR new base game.
    Do what you said you would, instead of delaying further by distracting with new projects. Instead you hold the payed HoBR hostage.

  10. avatar 49. Jerry said :

    Yes but still annoyed you never finished the solo system you promised for HoN

    Yup – I’m up for it!

  18. avatar 41. patrick said :

    Yes please do. What I would consider for all of you in cost savings is giving people the option of opting out of the pin ups and collector cards and war bond etc. That stuff can’t be cheap and not everyone is interested. I back a lot of campaigns where I bin that stuff because it doesn’t impact game play and it’s just more stuff that doesn’t need to be around. By optionally not including you may save a ton on printing costs.

  19. avatar 40. Friedrich Roehrer-Ertl said :

    Sure, I would love that option – go for it, you Pigs!
