Addit: This campaign includes Jack Churchill – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Churchill in it. He was an unusual character in World War II. He carried a long bow, bagpipes, and a Scottish broadsword in battle.
This was an easy Weirdness Wednesday day as I recently saw a Kickstarter campaign https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nazidracula/nazi-dracula-must-die-campaign-setting-for-dnd-5e. This is an alternate history world set during World War II. In this world, Nazi Germany has used arcane means to try and win the war. I thought it was good they are addressing certain issues up front. They have also talked with a Jewish consultant to ensure the Holocaust is dealt with in a fair way without minimizing it.
As I mentioned in an earlier post Newest Bundle of Holding Dracula Dossier Bundle – October 12, 2020, Dracula and vampires have been showing up regularly in things I have been seeing for the last few weeks. I don’t think vampires exist although there are some who claim to be vampires who unwisely drink human blood. I saw an article by a local newspaper reporter who interviewed some vampires about 20 or so years ago. I don’t recommend drinking blood of any sort, human or otherwise.
Why back this project?
You get to fight Nazis!
You get to kill Dracula!
Crystal Quill Press is committed to paying fair and livable wages to those working in the RPG industry. As part of that commitment, we are paying each of our designers 20 cents per word on this project and editors 10 cents per word.
Lastly, we are working with Jessica Price and other cultural consultants to ensure we respectfully address sensitivities regarding World War II while not erasing or minimizing the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime.
