World War Cthulhu is my system of choice so it's been great to hear you guys running it. I tend to leave the detection rolls for when investigators are in densely populated areas and mostly in occupied territory. It's the inclusion of N and his network make this interesting as our games I've started dropping little details about him into stories. I've also started to tease the idea of there being tension between N and SOE. This is going to lead to them facing off against a twisted SOE higher up running multiple world ending plots in London with N having been almost blown up and them being seen as traitors to their country so having to use stealth and cunning to defeat the evil. I love the fact the material lets make the network what you want. Hope to see more of it!

It is indeed very rich. We are back to WWII period but with Acthung Cthulhu. We were using DH as a temporary fill, but we can definitely create more scenarios using DH setting. There were many things unanswered that might be brought to life in later scenarios.
