About This File
Based on the id classic, “Wolfenstein 3D.” Stein.wad takes place during the 1940’s in an alternate reality in which clandestine research efforts and appeals to ancient, evil deities are about to give Germany an overwhelming advantage in World War II. This series includes period-accurate imagery and design elements relating to the setting and theme. Anyone who may be offended by the theme or images used in the series should refrain from playing it. The story is as follows…
In May, 1943, British intelligence received credible information regarding a German research facility at a remote castle named “Wolfenstein.” Not much is known about the nature of the research done there, but rumors abound. Some think powerful new weapons are being developed there. Others think that doctors use the fortress to conduct experiments on human subjects – using surgeries, drugs, or both – to engineer the perfect soldier: larger, stronger warriors who can go days or even weeks without sleep.
Little is known of the Commandant of Wolfenstein’s forces. He is said to hold frequent staff meetings. The meeting times, locations, topics, and members are all kept secret from those not attending. Even the lower officers consider the Commandant rather mysterious, if not a bit eerie. He is never seen in person by anyone other than his closest advisors, who relay his orders. Due to the isolated environment and the secretive nature of the facility, it seems possible that the Commandant may be distancing himself from the central command in Berlin and becoming something of a cult figure within the castle. As the top covert operative and intelligence agent in the United States, the Allies have asked you to infiltrate the castle, determine the nature of the facility there, and report back to our operatives in Europe for extraction. You are cleared to use your firearm at your discretion. Remember, this operation will turn the tide of the war.
