I have mentioned in the past that I have planned to write an expanded background for NW68. I want to make this project came to life in 2015 and I am wondering what would be a good starting based on the background information from the NW68 rulebook?

I am not sure what the original author/designer intends, but look up all the crazy conspiracy theories that surround SS General Hans Kammler. That would be a good starting point...

I recall the first time I heard of him was in a former Jane's Defense Weekly editor Nick Cook's book "Hunt for Zero Point". Great read if not very believable. Reads like an X-Files case.

Wikipedia is a decent starting point. Look up Hanebu, Black Sun, Nazi Bell, etc and follow the sources from there.

Never heard of Kammler. Thanks for the tip!

I find these conspiracy theories very interesting in an entertaining way. :-)
A result of this is a little print and play game I design called Neuschwabenland:

There are also many conspiracy theories regarding this German Antarctic Expedition in 1938/39. A good inspiration source!
