New OSR Cult - The Fangs of The Fatherland For Your Old School Campaigns

With the collapse of the worship of Baal Hammon's Carthagian religion & society many gods would have simply faded to the 'Other Place'. Instead "the beast" aspect of the god was taken to the darkest pits of the Inferno & merged with its other self in the form of  the collective devil thing  Zeus Amun. The howling wolf prince of Hell was the product of centuries of neglect & violence among the demons & devils. It found its place among the rabble of the Inferno & thrived. Its cults returned to Earth with an infernal  vengeance. The cults thrived among the werewolves where its mark was welcomed.

The god thing took command of the alien tribal warriors  known as eye killers as his own personal guard creatures & began healing wounds between desperate cults. He became known as a peacemaker but it was all illusionary. The devil was consolidating power on Earth.  He knew of the wars that were coming in Hell & the Inferno.

"According to the "Dictionnaire Infernal" by Collin de Plancy, he commands forty legions of demons and carries the title of prince. He is also an entity many looked to reconcile friends and foes, and procure love for those seeking it. The Egyptians viewed Amon or Amun as their supreme God; they represented him with the blue skin, in a rather human form."

Each new werewolf of his influence that was created was another piece in his bid for mastery on Earth. He appeared in his blue skinned man guise to many black magicians & casters giving them knowledge of the weaknesses of enemies. He was & is a demanding master needing a sacrificial murder among is worshipers every forte night.

"He was written about by Johann Wier in 1583 in the "Pseudomonarchia daemonum"
"Amon, or Aamon, is a great and mighty marques, and commeth abroad in the likeness of a Wolf, having a serpents tail, [vomiting] flames of fire; when he putteth on the shape of a man, he sheweth out dogs teeth, and a great head like to a mighty [night hawk]; he is the strongest prince of all other, and understandeth of all things past and to come, he procureth favor, and reconcileth both friends and foes, and ruleth forthy legions of devils."
And much later by S. L. MacGregor Mathers in the Goetia
"The Seventh Spirit is Amon. He is a Marquis great in power, and most stern. He appeareth like a Wolf with a Serpent's tail, vomiting out of his mouth flames of fire; but at the command of the Magician he putteth on the shape of a Man with Dog's teeth beset in a head like a Raven; or else like a Man with a Raven's head (simply). He telleth all things Past and to Come. He procureth feuds and reconcileth controversies between friends. He governeth 40 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this which is to be worn as aforesaid, etc.""

In 1939 deep in the German Black Forest members of the Thule society called down Aamon's essence in a bit to make a an elite corps of S.S. super soldiers. The plan worked a bit too well & the 'Fangs of The Fatherland' were born that night. Violent beyond human understanding & cunning as their devil father the Fangs were the perfect terror weapon. The Fangs obeyed the will of their devil father rather then the high command. This has sparked some violence among the Thule society & the Fangs.

'The Fangs of The Father' can only be created in a barbaric occult rite with 'the fluid of the Aamon' a dark potion indeed. Created through a combination of sacred herbs, the blood from a murder, & prepared by a witch sacred to Aamon. This occult practice & many others has created resentment & outright war among other groups of werewolves who view the 'Fangs of the Fatherland'  as evil incarnate. There has been an on going war between the Skalds of Odin & 'the Fangs of the Father' for years now. The Skalds are bardic werewolves who view the Fangs as abominations. 'The Fangs of the Fatherland ' gain some very attractive benefits from their devil master. They will live for 1d20 extra years & have a +2 Charisma when in human form. The fangs gain a +2 on any melee damage from their supernaturally powerful claws.

"The Fangs of The Fatherland " gain the 'Dark Speech' supernaturally  can understand speech of other evil creatures. One or two Fangs have been attached to certain occult related Nazi units & raider groups that rage across the planes looking for artifacts,relics, & treasures. As of 1952 the 'Fangs of The Fatherland' operating in America & have been seen helping American fifth columnists. There is also evidence that they are aligned with certain black wizard sects & witches covens.
The Fangs of The Fatherland can appear whenever the interests of the Reich are. They are very dangerous & extremely evil. They maybe encountered across the planes or in many dungeons.

Note - The Fangs of the Fatherland are NPC bad guys & very dangerous for PC's to encounter. The Fangs should only be encountered rarely or spoken of in whispers. A pack of the Fangs should only be encountered by experienced NPC's.
