Elder Godlike: Beyond the Limits of the North

Elder_Godlike_CoverElder Godlike is a new crossover RPG that combines Achtung! Cthulhu with Godlike – in other words, superpowered Allied soldiers fighting Nazi super soldiers AND Nazi sorcerers! I playtested the game in 2014 and the game has finally come out. Beyond the Limits of the North pits an Allied commando crew against the Black Sun cult, an insidious Nazi organization devoted to exploiting the Cthulhu mythos as a weapon of war. They have taken over a small fishing village in Norway and the Allies are worried about what they could be doing up there. So worried they send a crew of superpowered commandos to stop them, at any cost. As the landing force draws near to the coastline, the huddled soldiers wonder what horrors they will find in the village.
