DIE KREUZ UND CRYSANTHEMUM
The Cross and Crysanthemum is a pacifist group that exists in both the Reich and the Empire. Its members try to promote cooperation and greater understanding between the two Empires through friendship and cultural exchange. Both governments tolerate the existence of the group, but members are always being subjected to surveillance and harassment by the Gestapo and Tokko.
The Ancestral Heritage Society founded in the 1930’s by Heinrich Himmler. Members of this group consist of historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, philosophers, fanatical SS and NSDAP members, and curious citizens. The group’s aim is to maintain proof that Aryans are the superior “race”, and to research possible links to Atlantis and some advanced Alien (Aryan) culture. The organization is administered by the Hauptamt SS.
This organization, located in the Ruhr Valley, was founded by several large mining concerns during the late 1920’s. The organization serves toprotect mining interests by giving money and support to various politicians and bureaucrats.
