Protect and Survive

It’s 1984. The Cold War has gone hot. After a NATO military exercise, a full strategic exchange of nuclear and occult weapons has silenced the world. 

London has miraculously survived – saved by eldritch technology – but technology that has caused irreparable damage to the walls between worlds. 

The Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, has established a number of Rapid Reaction Teams. 

Your role is to work in secrecy and investigate phenomena and situations that are neither civil or military. 

Protect and Survive includes: 

– A full post apocalyptic campaign setting, including key locations and a suggested timeline of events

– Eight missions for your team to explore the horrors of post-strike London and environs

– Eleven suitable occupations

– Twelve new mythos monsters
