Achtung! Cthulhu: Code of Honour

Code of Honour - Zero Point 1942, is the third instalment in the Achtung! Cthulhu: Zero Point campaign from Modiphius Entertainment and the pen of Sarah Newton.


Set in Istanbul, Code of Honour features detailed maps, rules for spying, new grimoires and more. The PDF is available from DriveThruRPG and the Modiphius web shop.


This is the first time I've noticed a significant price disparity between places like DriveThruRPG and the publisher's own web shop. If you want to save a few pounds/dollars, pick it up from Modiphius directly.

Code of Honour: Zero Point 1942


Welcome to the City of Spies!


"I'm involved in a dangerous game,

Every other day I change my name,

The face is different but the body's the same,

Boo, boo, baby! I'm a spy!"

– Popular song in wartime Istanbul


Istanbul in 1942 is a neutral city, packed with spies. Everyone's here - the Nazis, the Soviets, the Brits and the Yanks, the Japanese and a host of other nations, all waging a deadly war of wits against a backdrop of cocktail bars and polite smiles. From the infamous Snake Pit in the Park Hotel, to the jazz clubs and fashionable restaurants of Istiklal Avenue, to the warrens of alleys around the spires and mosques of Fatih and Sultanahmet, it's a city in ferment. While Turkey desperately tries to stay out of the war, the Führer's armies mass less than a hundred miles away.


But that's not all. Something even more terrifying is going on beneath the ancient streets of the Sublime Porte. Meddling forces have unearthed an ancient treasure, setting in motion plans centuries old which threaten to change the course of the whole war - and even the world!


Code of Honour: Zero Point 1942 is a multi-session Achtung! Cthulhu adventure with a difference. It features:

  • Descriptions and personalities of Istanbul in 1942
  • A detailed map of wartime Istanbul
  • Rules for tradecraft and spying
  • Secrets and mysteries of Istanbul, including new grimoires
  • A multi-session adventure of lethal conspiracy
  • Can you fathom the mystery of Code of Honour, and win this deadly battle in the secret war?


Price: £9.99 (Modiphius) or £12.87 (DriveThruRPG)

DriveThru charges 30%-35% hosting fee, so it looks like Modiphius’ lower price on their site reflects that as a savings for buyer.

Indeed, but usually I see the same price across locations. DriveThruRPG also takes a bigger cut if you're not exclusive to them. I can see it making financial sense therefore to charge more on DriveThru...etc.

Is this a physical book or a pdf?


Nevermind, I re-read the text and answered my own question :P

This looks like its going to be an awesome resource book let alone as an adventure.
