"Fate's Guide To The Secret War is by far the best, the most complete-in-itself book that ties the gorgeous Achtung! Cthulhu to a game system. Fate supports pulp very well; the Fate adaptations respect the spirit of the Mythos; the narrative approach creates ominous Cthulhu stories and helps spread terror around your table. I am playing CoC for decades, yet the strength of this book alone tempts me enormously to reset all my A!C escapades in Fate. ¬†- RPG Net review

In fact, a whole shoggoth's worth of Cthulhu villainy, enough for any Keeper to have his investigators dead, insane, or running for their lives in no time! The Keeper's Guide to the Secret War will be the essential wartime reference for any Fate Core Keeper or fan of the Cthulhu Mythos.
This edition presents new rules for Fate Core suited to playing in a Cthulhu Mythos setting and in a World War Two setting, including sanity and Mythos magic rules, ways to construct and use Mythos creatures, handling conflicts in a warzone, broadening intellectual skills and using all of them in investigation, and more! Achtung! Cthulhu merges these great flavours together, but the Game Creation chapter in the Keeper's Guide tells you how to tweak those individual dials for your Fate campaign.
