The Origin

Snakes and Gestapo is a single-player role-playing campaign. Act 1: Consumed from the Inside is a translation from Dans le nid du mal - Acte 1 : Rongé de l'intérieur.

The Synopsis

Follow Friedrich Beck, an officer wounded during the September Campaign. Despite the fact he lost an eye during the Brest-Litovsk assault, he refuses to be a burden. Forced to stay away from the front lines, he dedicates his time chasing down deserters. In June 1941, after a series of murders in Leipzig, the Gestapo requires his services. Quickly, Beck and his partner, Captain Hammerstein, who is probably more Nazi than Hitler himself, are dragged into a sordid tale of serial murders. Be part of a Germany at war with the world.

Discover the Nazi’s totalitarianism culture from an officer’s point of view, and that of a father who will rapidly learn that monsters are more human than they appear. Enjoy a story written in the purest horror tradition, Howard Phillips Lovecraft-like, with some elements from such classics as The X-Files, in the day-to-day life of World War II.

Here is a single-player role-playing campaign which uses the gamebook concept. It has been adapted for a more mature audience by developing a game system sufficiently complex to satisfy the most diehard rolists. We have also eliminated instant deaths and implanted a points-of-experience concept. You will thus be able to make Friedrich Beck progress according to your vision of what is a good officer.

This document is a combination of fiction and historical facts which pays tribute to all those men and women who, within Germany’s borders, tried to fight against what was unacceptable.

The Demo

Here are the first 13 pages.
(Including the rules of engagement)

Here the page 16 to 19 (chapter 1). The final version after the corrections. The historical facts on the margin still need to be corrected.

The RPG Geek has the French title. RPG Geek administrators only accept this title because the French version has already been edited and the English version hasn't been.

How to pledge with Add Ons

First choose a pledge and add the Add ons price to the pledge (Use the ADD ONS SUMMARIZED just below). Example, you select the main infantry pledge and you only want the prelude and the dice.

Main Infantry = $42 CAD
Prelude = $15 CAD
Dice = $12 CAD
For a total of $69 CAD

You enter $69 on the pledge and send me a message (by KickStarter or by mail: ggagnon09@gmail.com) with the detail of your order. 

Why I do not use a pledge manager? If this KS beats all previous record, I will think about using a pledge manager. But I can manage 75 to 300 different pledges. That's my job, as a warehouse manager for LUMA Distribution, to fill out order and make sure everyone receives their pledge ;)

ERREUR DANS LA DATE DE LIVRAISON DU "PLEDGE" EN VERSION FRANÇAISE. LA LIVRAISON EST OCTOBRE 2018 ET NON 2019

La version française est disponible depuis novembre 2017 au Canada suite à une campagne Ulule en mars 2017. Ensuite, je n'ai pas trouvé de distributeur en France, la thématique étant trop "controversée" pour plusieurs. Cela a changé depuis août 2018 où j'ai pu passer une entente avec Posidonia Editions.

Pourquoi la VF est plus dispendieuse que la version anglaise? J'ai une entente avec mon distributeur canadien qui m'oblige à vendre au prix détail qui est de 50$ CAD. Si vous êtes un contributeur canadien-français, je vous invite même à commander votre livre directement d'une boutique de jeux et de simplement contribuer pour les "Add Ons" qui sont exclusifs aux sociaux financements. Vous économiserez même sur les frais de transport.

Si vous n'avez qu'un seul "add ons" a prendre, je suggère le prélude. La fiche de personnage et les dés restent optionnels (cependant, ils ajoutent a l'ambiance WWII tout comme le livret de propagande et le poster de la couverture). Pour ajouter un ou des "Add Ons" a votre "pledge", il suffit d'inscrire le montant en utilisant la table "Add Ons - Summerized" (copié juste en dessous pour vous).

Résumé des "Add Ons"
Résumé des "Add Ons"

Par exemple, vous prenez le "pledge - résistance française". Vous voulez les dés, le prélude et la version PDF de la fiche de personnage (parce que vous avez la super imprimante couleurs intégrée).

Résistance française = 50$
Les dés = 12$
Le prélude = 15$
La fiche de personnage en PDF = 4$
Pour un total de 81$

Vous inscrivez donc 81$ sur le "Pledge" et vous m'envoyez un petit message avec un résumé de votre commande. Vous pouvez l'envoyer directement en message privé sur KickStarter ou encore par mail: ggagnon09@gmail.com

Après la campagne, vous aller recevoir un message de confirmation avec un résumé votre "pledge".

Risks and challenges

The book has already been written and about 70% has been translated. We think the translation will be completed by mid-September and the complete integration will be over around 5 weeks later. The PDF should therefore be ready at that point. As for the printed version, it should be available in mid-December.

The risk is in the delay. This is why we put a delivery date near March 2019. We will have time to make a second pass on the work of the translator. Also, the printing process can be very long, especially if we print outside North America.

Why a relaunch? To guarantee colour. When the first campaign was launched, several backers were disappointed the designs presented (in colour) did not represent the reality of the project, that is to say black and white. And so I did my homework in order to offer a project 100 % equal to what is presented. The French version is in colour, I thus want to offer an English version in colour.
