Series: Dark Osprey
In the dark dungeons beneath Nazi Germany, teams of occult experts delved into ancient and forbidden lore, searching for lost secrets of power. This book tells the complete history of the Nazi occult programs, from their quests for the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Destiny, and the Holy Grail, through their experiments with lycanthrope and zero-point energy. It also includes information on the shadow war fought in the dying days of the Reich as the Nazis deployed strange flying saucers that battled to save their final stronghold in the Antarctic. For years, the Allied governments worked to keep this information from reaching the public, and sought to discredit those few who dared to seek the truth. Now, using a combination of photography and artwork reconstructions, the true story of the most secret battles of World War II can finally be told.

For the last twenty years he has worked as a full-time writer and role-playing game designer, contributing to many famous games including GURPS, Hero System, Vampire: The Dark Ages, and Savage Worlds. He has also written or co-written numerous books on esoteric subjects such as Cthulhu 101 and Where the Deep Ones Are. He is also the designer and writer of the Trail of Cthulhu role-playing system and its supplements. Born and raised in Malaysia, Darren grew up drawing spaceships, dinosaurs and the stuff of his imagination, which was fuelled by movies and computer games. Inspired by these, he went on to study animation and later graduated as a Computer Animator from Sheridan College, Canada. After a brief stint in 3D animation, he decided to trade in polygons for a wacom tablet. Now he works as a digital concept artist at Imaginary Friends Studios and is enjoying getting paid for his hobby. Apart from his passion for art and all things Medieval he is also a big fan of The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars and enjoys delving into Church history. He now lives with his beautiful wife in sunny Singapore.

Reviews for The Nazi Occult

The book, as with most Osprey offerings is short but packed with useful information. I highly recommend it for game masters wanting to plumb the depths of Nazi occult activities in a future campaign. There is even a short passage at the end that implies a sequel may be in the works for this book. I truly hope so. Livingdice.com
