Basic Information

The Thule Society was an occult secret society founded in Munich, Germany in 1911. It is most commonly known for sponsoring the predecessor of the Nazi Party. It was dissolved by the Nazis in 1935.

Ironically, many of the Society's interests were then taken up and carried forwards by some of the odder Nazis, notably Heinrich Himmler, who was noted for his obsession with this sort of thing.

Game and Story Use

  • The Thule Society can work as occultist counterparts to the Nazis in a pulp game.
    • Alternatively, it could operate as the "supernatural enforcers" of the Nazis during that era, as well during World War II. This is at odds with the dissolution of the group by the Nazis in the real world, but cheerfully ignoring that is entirely in-genre.
    • Consider, for example, a wainscot fantasy game set in 1930s Germany - all the usual supernatural problems, plus the Nazis trying to take over the magical community as well. Presumably there will be those who welcome the new era, whether from pagan-revivalism, mundane politics or because the severely materialistic communists appear to be a bigger threat; but anyone who practices kabbalah or any kind of magic that might be considered "decadent" is liable to have problems.
