From publisher blurb:
In the ever disputed lands of Alsace and Lorraine, south of Colmar and near Mulhouse, is the small town of Wittenheim - a place with a statue full of gossip and legend. In the market square of the little village stands a lovely and ancient bronze that the locals claim to be Athena. Dressed in long flowing cloth, she stands behind a large round Greek shield with her hand on the top edge, and holding a dory longspear in the other. Proud she stands and clearly victorious because of the grand laurel crown on her head. None know when Athena made her way to Wittenheim, but she is their patron, their beloved, and many locals claim their guardian angel through conflict after conflict in the region.
It is currently 1872, and Germany has only recently demanded Alsace-Lorraine as part of peace with Napoleon III’s France. Tensions are high as the previously French region is being re-incorporated into the German state once again.
This is a Quick Start Module for Beta Maxxthulhu RPG. Inside you will find:
- A reduced version of the rules
- Six pregenerated Characters
- A module ready to play in 3 parts centering on the town of Wittenheim
In this module your Team arrive in Wittenheim, and have just agreed to a contract which needs them to investigate the local Statue of Athena. The Statue has been the subject of wild rumours for centuries, and the incoming Burgermeister wants to know if they are just wild tales or if there is something more to it all before they consider moving the statue to stand outside the town hall. Normal town life seems to be happening in Wittenheim, and the locals while a little nervous about outsiders, are happy to talk about their alleged guardian angel of bronze. But once there is an angry dispute in the town square, right near the Statue, things take a very strange turn and the locals of Wittenheim will never be the same.
