ParaMilitary: Reichsraptor for the Cypher System

A recursion where WWII is still being fought in 1946.  Where Little Boy never reached Hiroshima and the U.S.A. didn't dare drop Fat Man.  Where the Nazi project known Die Glocke was a phylactery for Hitler and his "death" in the Reich Chancellery merely an apotheosis. Where Shaver's derro have joined the Axis powers. Where the greatest generation has to first accept the paranormal is real, before they can even begin to fight it...


France 1946

Mystics working for Crystal Ball have discerned that the Reich's program is in it's infancy and hope to sabotage it quickly.  Additionally, there are ongoing concerns on how the Reich acquired these monstrosities.





They guard enemy strongholds, telepathically communicating with their handlers and learning each and every one of humankind's weaknesses...
