The Nazi Defences (Weird Wars II / Savage Worlds) (Inactive)

Game Master PhilOfCalth

During the bloody days of October 1944 in the town of Kelmis, only a few Km from the battlefronts of World War 2, local folklore and history is becoming current fact. It is up to the more able bodied patients of a military field hospital to find out what's going on.


October 7th 1944 - Kelmis, Belgium
The Americans bring the fight to German soil, but the Nazi defensive line is extremely effective. The push to take Aachen has been going on for 5 days and it is slow. Poor luck and tenacious defenders seem to threaten the push at every step, and the body count mounts.

Meanwhile, in a field hospital set up in a cathedral in the Belgian town of Kelmis spirits seem to haunt the dying and healthy patients go missing in the night.
