Weird War: Secrets Beneath

Secrets Beneath is an original one-shot adventure module for Genesys. Set in the Weird War, an occult reframing of World War II, the PCs must deal with ambivalent spirits, untrusting prisoners, and of course the German Army.

I wrote this story as a soft sequel to an earlier Weird War one-shot our group played several years ago in which the German Army succeeded at a summoning. We played this new adventure over two sessions, each about three hours long. We enjoyed unraveling the mystery together, and then I made some revisions based on how it went. This module is the result of that refinement.

Four pre-generated characters, all members of the Allied Forces, are provided, should you wish to use them. They are +50 XP beyond starting XP. The module also includes a set of four secret backgrounds and four secret goals that can be distributed at random, to help give players some direction on their character’s behavior.

This module was inspired by the @RealTimeWWII Twitter account.  If you want to learn about history in small snippets, I recommend following them!
