    44 KB The Great Paranormal War YoungWritefag 05/05/09(Tue)16:39 No.4474202  
    I said I'd compile all the posts into one thread, here it is.

    In the desperate years of the second world war (Great Paranormal War as it became known to the Russians), the Nazi's fused super science, their penchant for mass-murder, and the occult into a scourge that would haunt the steps of man forever. Hitler, realizing that he could never complete his victory over the Soviet Union with the dwindling manpower of Germany, turned his attention to something the Fatherland had plenty of, the dead. Himmer's freshly formed SS Division of Paranormal Ops, teamed with the Black Arts and Sciences Department of the German government set to work creating the Fuhrer's ultimate army.

    Initially, they met with failure, while the "Scheusal", which roughly translates into "zombie" was tough to kill. It was also highly unreliable, as they would wander off in the direction of the nearest attainable food source, which in many cases tended to be the Wehrmacht's own troops. One SS report also stated that it had a detrimental effect on morale and "caused considerable difficulty in rallying men as they watched their former comrades in arms devouring enemies or allies.". For the Germans, this was only the first misstep on the road to perfection. Next, Himmler chose a corps of especially racially pure SS officers, whom, after participating in a "Blood Ritual" believed to be an oath of eternal service devised by the SS Paranormal Ops teams, he had ritually slaughtered. Using some arcane means, he had the souls of these men implanted in specially created hosts.

    These hosts were to be the leaders of Hitlers new Dark Army. The BA/S department through the use of historical documents, dug up the remains of dead knights of the Teutonic orders of old, and had their bones placed in specially designed armor, daubed in runic symbols sacred to the SS. Ritually sealed, and imbued with the souls of resurrected SS officers, they walked again. As they had no human body to limit them, these creatures had near limitless strength, and were equipped with weapons that would slow a normal man to a crawl, such as the feared MG42, or Flamethrowers... some wielded darker weapons that they brought back from the other side with them. To make matters even worse for the Allies, they were virtually indestructible.

    Hitlers new dark Teutonic Order were the perfect leaders for his armies of undeath. The new "Scheusal Mk. II" was programmed with a spell that bound it to the will of the Black Knight leading the company. Driven by his fanatical will and murderous intent, they became devastatingly effective soldiers, only killed by headshots, and frightfully strong they could rip
    men to shreds. The SS also made the morale improvement of masking the faces of the reincarnated dead with gas masks, and giving the detachments names like "SS Plague Weapons Division" and the like, to keep average soldiers away.

    They were first tested at the city of Leningrad, a place of much consternation to the Third Reich. The siege had dragged on for almost as long as the armies of the Reich had been in in Russia. The people, starving and weak, held on with dogged determination, and no end seemed in sight. Himmler thought of this as his chance at a shining achievement for his aptly named "Deaths Head Legion".

    They took the city in three days. The unstoppable hordes of undead smashed through the barricades, and butchered the defenders. Where fortified buildings gave the horrified Red Army soldiers a chance to slow the oncoming horde of monstrosities, they were blasted or burned out by unstoppable Black Knights. The ravening horde then fell upon the populace. Only a few living SS officers joined the dead army to observe their effectiveness, and barely any remained sane enough to report back what they had witnessed in those two terrible days. Through them, and the transcribed ramblings, they gathered reports of soldiers feasting on flesh, and the Knights feasting on something darker still... souls, ripped screaming from their human forms, and devoured. When the German Army entered on the sixth day, they found the fortress city nothing but a charnel shell. The streets ran with blood, piles of corpses were everywhere and the air hung heavy with horror. Nothing was left alive, all was consumed. It was a victory that had not been seen since Paris, and the German people would know none of it. The press corps was not allowed within a mile of the city, and signs like "Verboten, Typhus!" cropped up everywhere. For the SS and Himmler, however, spirits could not be higher, and Hitler would use this dark army to crush the resistance at Stalingrad.

    It was not until the battle of Moscow that the tide could be turned.

    The battle of Moscow had dragged on for weeks, even with the army of the unliving, but progress was steady. With its ranks swollen by the harvest at Leningrad and Stalingrad, and every Red Army army soldier that fell became a new recruit. Sometimes, the DA/S department wouldn't fully program the newly dead, and would simply unleash the mindless, hungering fiend on the populace of Moscow. Many reports were taken by Commissars of men screaming and raving about dead brothers and friends coming back to eat them before finally shooting themselves. Himmler took particular pleasure upon hearing such dispatches.

    The Allies, desperate for a countermeasure, had pooled their resources to develop a weapon against the undead legion. Stalin gathered every Gypsy, palm reader, fortune teller, and tested them ruthlessly to find those who were truly gifted, and those who were not. The psychics who succeeded, went on to further training, those that did not, were shot to preserve secrecy. The survivors were put through rigorous training that enabled them to sever the energy linking the Dark Knights from their soldiers, and in some cases, free the tormented souls of their undead shells completely. The Dark Knights however, had joined willingly, and so were much more difficult to spiritually removed, all alone however, they could finally be destroyed with overwhelming firepower. Further, the psychic weapons provided some shielding against the darker powers wielded by the Knights, and the Cultists which had joined the ranks.

    Not to be outdone, British Military Intelligence, and the Office of Strategic Services began work on what became known at the highest levels of the western allied governments as the Spiritual Warfare Division. With aid from the Vatican, weapons to combat the dark arts were developed. Shotgun shells filled with exorcised salt as well as lead were produced, bullets with holy water ampules contained inside, flamethrowers with blessed oils from the holiest churches in Christendom, knives and bayonettes were blessed and hammered out of silver and steel from Crucifixes. Joined by willing Priests drawn from all the Allied countries, Poland, America, Free France and even some Italian refugees. There was even an Indian battalion, where Shaman and holy men from the Apache, Comanche, and Sioux joined the ranks. Now even the very Earth rose in anger against the unholy Reich. These men, trained like soldiers, but with the hearts of clergymen, when the time finally came led the assault on Castle Wewelsburg.

    The Siege of Castle Wewelsburg became the battle for the soul of humanity. While largely kept out of the press until after the battle, it was well known to people of the world that the dark forces unleashed by the Nazis had to be contained and destroyed, or they would overwhelm everything in time. This became especially clear when the Nazi's, in desperation, attempted to use bloated zombies to cross the channel at the Pas de Calais. While almost all were destroyed in direct action by the Spiritual Warfare division, a few managed to slip through the protective cordon and wreaked havoc on close in land towns, causing many to be Quarantined until the undead menace could be quelled. As the Western Allies mustered their forces for battle at Wewelsburg, the Russians had turned their new psychic weapons into the physical manifestation of Slavic vengeance.

    At Wewelsburg, the allies began with a mechanized assault, using specially blessed and exorcised tanks and armored fighting vehicles, resistant to the corrupting and corrosive spells wielded by the Cultists and Knights, as well as the new "Pentagramic Shells" and "Baphomet Cannons" developed by the BA/S department. Which had flayed the souls of so many soldiers of the Allies. Allied artillery, inscribed with prayers of exorcism and purification pounded the walls of the Nazi fortress, finally breaching the gate, and allowing allied infantry inside.

    Hundreds died as Himmler unleashed his newest creation, the Ende Garde, or Death Guard. Huge flesh golems created out of the congealed flesh of SS dead, were only a half dozen in number, still in the test phase, but proved insanely tough to kill. Slowly but surely, they were lured outside, to be destroyed by lightning from the hands of Shaman, combined fire from the blessed weapons of the SW Division soldiers, or in one case banished by the hands of a single SW Division Priest. Only then could they fight their way into the bowels of the black citadel. Fighting through fanatical SS Troops, driven to depravity and insanity by the dark forces they had been exposed to, the Western Allies discovered the true depths to which the evil Reich had sunk.

    In the miles of excavated catacombs beneath the castle, untold horrors were discovered, few SW Division soldiers would speak about what they saw, even to high command, but what reports could be compiled defy belief. Piles of plague infected concentration camp victims lay ready for reanimation, to be sent via the channel to England, and specially designed U-boats to the coast of America. Body parts and organs of fallen Waffen SS daubed in vile magick runes, lay in semi congealed soup, ready for injection into molds that would allow for easy mass production of the Ende Garde super soldiers. It was clear that Himmler to produce these on a scale similar to the Scheusal Soldaten, and had them led by the Dark Knights. Given only a few months more, the Third Reich would have overwhelmed and swept aside the armies of the Allies in an unstoppable wave of dead flesh. More alarming, it came to the attention of the OSS that the SS Paranormal Ops division had begun to merge the cultists and Dark Knights, creating near indestructible undead warriors, that could raise freshly dead soldiers right on the battlefield. Distressingly, none of the few that remained could be found, and had apparently escaped into the woods of the Rhineland.

    >(From another anon, which I spiced up a bit)
    Perhaps the most famous of the British answers against the Nazi's new Teutonic Order was Lieutenant-Colonel Jack Malcolm Thorpe Fleming Churchill, more commonly known as "Mad Jack" by his troops and "Britannia Triumphant" among the public. Leading a handpicked squad of Commandos, Churchill's primary mission was to seek and destroy Black Knights. His legendary success can be attributed both to his personal character, and to the sword that was his primary weapon: what many historians agree was Excalibur itself. Regardless of the sword's identity, there are numerous eyewitness accounts of it shining brightly as Churchill used it to cut Black Knights in half--the same horrors that had taken artillery rounds without pause. Churchill also is claimed to have been able to disrupt the magic controlling a Scheusal's mental processes by playing a set of bagpipes, but these allegations have yet to be given proper documentation. Churchill's Commando group was handpicked from England's finest; being knighted for exceptional gallantry was a must before any man could even be considered for selection. The British propaganda corps noticed this, and dubbed this Commando group "The New Round Table." "Never have so many owed so much to so few." Winston Churchill's words, after the defense of London, where he led from the front with Tommy gun in hand, and was saved by Mad Jack's timely relief.

    Among his most notable deeds were the development of the Pendragon Rounds. Jack Churchill was more than able to destroy a Black Knight at three hundred paces with this ammunition, which burned like a flare, and screamed like and eagle when fired. To this day, no one knows their exact composition, because Mad Jack took their secret to the grave, back in 1996. He also participated in the action that would make his name synonomous with British ingenuity and daring, in a commando raid on a Norwegian installation that gave the British forces their first Black Knight to analyze. Armed only with his trusty sword and aided only by his lieutenant known to most records only as “Percy”, he managed to capture twenty-seven SS soldiers and, inexplicably, an active Black Knight.

    Stalin, not wishing to tip his hand about his newly developed psychic weapons, had told SHAEF that he simply didn't have the forces available to aid in the destruction of Wewelsburg. This would come back to bite the Soviets in the Korean Suppression, as armor technology captured from the Nazis would lead to the development of the US "M8-Patton" Personal Tank, a massive suit of diesel fueled powered armor. Regardless, he massed his psychic soldiers, whom had used the years of German defeats and retreat to develop not only psychic defense, but psychic weapons against the Wehrmacht. On the outskirts of Berlin, soldiers began going insane, shooting themselves or their comrades, or simply walking out into the guns of the avenging Soviets. Women threw themselves and their children from windows, the old and the invalid dying of terror induced heart attacks as nightmares from the Eastern Front were transmitted directly into their brains. Tanks crumpled as incredible unseen force held them in a vice like grip. The captured were forced to slit their own throats, "To save us the ammunition..." one Commissar noted, "these fascist pigs are not worth the bullet." The truest revenge came in the final days of April, 1945. Until then, Hitler had proved remarkably resistant to psychic attack, his mind incredibly strong, as if driven and reinforced by a darker and stronger intelligence. Deep within his psychicly shielded bunker, and surrounded by psychic defectors from the USSR, he remained impervious to assassination attempts by psychic agents. So Stalin's agents chose to isolate him, first and easiest to turn was Goering, as they stoked the fires of his ambition. Each of his Generals, one at a time, accepted defeat and turned on him, the seeds of Soviet victory planted in their fear fevered brains.

    Eventually, paranoia, defeat, the malign influence of the darkness he sought to harness, and above all the despair of lonelyness weakened Hitler, until he too became vulnerable. The breakthrough was made by a psychic agent, known even to this day only as Agent Ivan. No concrete reports exist or have been declassified to this day of the exact events, but a Soviet defector during the following cold war spoke of Stalin psychicly being witness to Hitler's suicide, through the ministrations of Agent Ivan. With the death of Hitler, the strongest link in the chain that connected the Reich with the forces of darkness snapped, and Nazi paranormal activity dropped to near zero. Stalin ordered that great show be made to beguile the Allies into believing that the rumored Soviet Psychic Agency was indeed just rumor, and that would prevent the development of psychic counter measures like those used by the Nazis.

    Unfortunately for mankind, the few Black Knights that had escaped scattered themselves to the four winds. They would only emerge again at the head of a horde of undeath, usually reaping a frightful harvest before being defeated again, and driven away. It became the personal quest of "Mad Jack" Churchill to hunt down the last of these creatures, and to the day he died he protected the world against those who would use the dark arts to further there own agendas. For the people of Russia however, their suffering was not yet ended. Leningrad became a haunted shell of a city. After the war ended, the Soviet government tried to have it repopulated, only to find that a single unimaginably powerful Dark Knight had taken up the city as his own blasted citadel. Allied Intelligence believes, but cannot conclusively prove, that this creature is in fact Heinrich Himmler. Unwilling to fight for the tormented shadow city, the Russians gathered the most potent of their Psychic Agents, and walled the city off as the Agents erected a psychic dome of energy, sealing it forever. The dome must be forever maintained by the Psychic Agency, or the horrors contained within could be unleashed on a war weary world. So it remains to this day, the Dark Knight encapsulated in his psychic prison, plotting against the world of the living, waiting for the day of his release to haunt the steps of Man again.

    I did THINK about that. But when I put it down, it seemed lame, so I thought Himmler would make a better Dark Knightification.

    Alright, where the hell is Musolini in all of this? How the hell did the Vatican collaborate with England while in the middle of enemy territory? Why would England want to cooperate with the Vatican while they are very much Anglican? Shouldn't the royal family at the time been the ones to be in control of any blessed weaponry because the monarchy is also the head of the Anglican Church?

    Could the invasion of England have anything to do with Hitler's interest in Gaelic runes and artifacts? Could the English have employed men and women from all over England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales that had access to these mysterious artifacts?

    What were the Japanese up to in all of this? And the United States? The US did employ Navajo for encrypting military intelligence, perhaps the strange mysticism of the Native American Tribes could be put to use for the war effort. Diesel powered tank men fighting along side Native American shamans would be awesome as hell. I'm not well versed with Japanese culture, but the did have a god emperor. Perhaps something happened to give Hirohito incredible powers?
