We have successfully located and established a base of operations at Schatten Castle. The Castle
itself is in remarkably, if eerily, excellent condition, even though it has been unoccupied for
nearly three centuries. Due to the history of the castle and the tales of horror associated with
it, many of the men refuse to venture into the lower levels alone. Many of them have reported odd
noises and claim to have seen things of a supernatural nature at various locations in the castle.
I fear that the men are letting the ancient legends and stories fire their imaginations on these
cold winter nights. But I digress from the subject of this message. We continue our search for
the Schatten Gateway and await your further instructions.

At long last, we have discovered the Schatten Gateway. All is on schedule per our last discussion.
The ancient texts are being deciphered and the Gateway has been activated. I must strongly urge
you to reconsider our orders. The amount of odd occurrences reported by the men has increased.
Even I myself have on occasion heard and seen things I cannot explain. If the Gateway is truly a
door to the underworld, as the legends state, I fear what we will release on the world. I do not
believe we will be able to control or contain what unearthly forces we will free from their long
slumber. We should not disturb the warriors of the past. I await your orders.

Orders issued 12-18-1941
An Allied listening post has intercepted several messages regarding what the Axis describe as
"The Schatten (Shadow) Gateway". It would appear that the Furher's fanaticism with the occult
may finally bear fruit. According to the messages the Axis have opened the gateway and are
planning to release some type of Supernatural Power on the Allies. Your mission is to breach the
castle and steal the Ancient Text before the Axis can finish deciphering it, then escape to the
waiting truck outside. The Axis cannot be allowed to complete this deadly project. If they
succeed all hope may be lost. Not only for the Allied Nations, but possibly for all of mankind.
Objective Game Description: The Allies are attempting to steal Reverse Engineering Logs from an Axis Facility. The Axis are trying to destroy the Mobile Radar station and the Power Generator to render the Allied Base useless.
- Allied Primary Objectives: Steal the Ancient Texts from the Axis occupied Castle and escape to the waiting truck.

- Axis Primary Objectives: Defend the Main Gate.
