Delta Green

Game NameDelta Green
Game SystemOther Roleplaying Games
Themeclassical conspiracy/Cthulhu Mythos
FlavourGritty modern realism
Plot Summary
Delta GreenAsk any two Delta Green agents “What is Delta Green?” and you’ll get two very different answers. It is an enigma. Its mission requires concealing itself from the public, from the rest of the U.S. government, and even, sometimes, from its own agents.

It is likely that even a veteran agent has met fewer than five Delta Green operatives. That’s it. There are no cubicles. No secret bases. No newsletters or human resources intranets. No badges or letterhead. Every team is spread out, coming together only when a mission demands it. Details about the leadership are off-limits. If there is a headquarters, you’ve never seen it. If you do know more, you know to keep it to yourself. Such knowledge could get people arrested or killed. The group is more like a secret society than an agency of the federal government. Every Delta Green agent spends most of his or her time working a “real” job. Many are FBI, CIA, or military, but nearly any profession can be found in Delta Green’s ranks.

Delta Green recruits a new prospect only after confirming that he or she can handle the work and the unconventional demands the group makes. They usually look to federal agents and special forces, adaptable professionals trained to cope with overwhelming stress and danger.

Sometimes prospects are recruited from other fields, such as science, anthropology, or medicine. If the prospect has encountered the unnatural, all the better. Delta Green wants people who recognize the depth of the danger. If your first instinct is to go public with an unnatural discovery, it’s likely you are not a Delta Green recruit but a Delta Green mission.

Assets
Delta Green: Need to Know
Delta Green Character Sheet: Form Fillable Google Doc (Make sure to make a copy/rename/ then fill out)

RecruitsI am looking for 2-3 new recruits. I have one veteran agent. Please take a look at the above Need to Know document and come up with a possibly Delta Green adjacent: Does not know Delta exists but might possible have bumped against them in the past.Friendly. You do not have to fill out a character sheet and do not roll any dice on this thread. Use the following as a template:

IMPORTANT: This is a gritty, bleak setting. We will bump up against RPGX's touchlines. The world is a dark place but at least in Delta Green you get to even the score. You have been warned.

* Starting Date: February 2001
* Current Team: Computer Scientist and Doctor
*Area: Maryland/DC

Looks interesting! Do you know what kind of posting rate you're expecting to make / from players for this?

@MercurialJack: This will not be a fast paced game. I would imagine 1 to 2 posts a week would be ideal. I definitely prefer quality to quantity.

Dossier
right-aligned image
Book Jacket Author Photo
Background check – career outline.

Name: Theodore (Teddy) Proctor
DoB: September 12, 1970
Place of birth: Salem, Massachusetts
Father’s occupation: Manager, The Salem Inn
Mother’s occupation: Librarian, Salem Library
Siblings: Joann (Proctor) Sullivan, Liam Proctor

Education: B.A. English, Tufts University, 1992
Master of Liberal Arts (ALM) in Extension Studies, Field: Creative Writing and Literature, Harvard, 1995

Work: Media Specialist and Author
Contractor, Department of the Interior; TS Clearance

Selected Works:
Heirlooms in the Corn Field
In 1798 the Whatly family finds a strange sigil in their corn field, they think nothing of it until strange and fascinating events begin to take place all around them. Blessed with a bountiful crop the Whatly family prospers and grows until the 100th anniversary of the sigil. The deal done; the strange forces that once blessed the family begin collecting their debt. When 3 children go missing from the nearby town PI George Samuelson is sent to investigate.

Depths of Circumstance
The year is 1915. World War 1 rages in Europe, but the Great War has yet to hit home in the States. The steamship SS Oseburg is just a few days out from port slowly making its way to Boston, Massachusetts. Its unsuspecting passengers anticipated a calm journey; however, eerie and mystifying nightmares plague the people aboard; rumors circulate of dark shapes hidden in the water behind the ship just beneath the waves; and tensions rise when a body is discovered in the ship's chapel, remnants of a strange ritual littered around the corpse.

Ctrl Alt Del
Something is in the internet, and its hungry. It all started as an Urban Legend. A video circulating around the usual dark internet sites that specialize in the weird, creepy, and bizarre – but when a group of college freshmen watch the video in the dormitory, they each begin disappearing one by one. Fred Chamberlain, a security guard on campus, was the first to find a body. It wasn’t one of the missing students, it was a professor of computer science, his eyes plucked from his head and a strange message blinked on his computer screen: स्वातन्य

On Thin Ice
Some things are better left forgotten. When a group of archaeologists find what appears to be the remains of a massive, undiscovered dinosaur frozen in the ice of the Arctic, they begin the arduous process of recovering the fossils. When they begin to chip away at the ice, they find that there are other things hidden within, dark shadows which haunt the minds of those involved, eventually driving one of them to murder.

Agent’s notes: Specialist in Plausible Deniability and Psychological Operations

Writing sample: Teddy sipped the brandy at his side as he starred at the blinking icon on the screen in front of him. The fruity subtlety of the liquor played on his tongue, as notes of oak came and went. A stack of Manila folders sat sprawled out on the desk. The photos and papers within were incomplete, redacted, marked Top Secret; Do Not Disseminate. The information contained in the documents was hard, nigh impossible to believe – but it wasn’t Teddy’s job to understand it or to rationalize it. It was to take a tiny granule of the truth and turn it into a best selling a novel.

A novel that would slowly seep into pop culture, maybe even get a movie deal. It had to be popular enough that if someone stumbled upon the truth they would be ridiculed and laughed at. For example, if someone reported a child killing clown living in the sewers, they’d be accused of reading It a few too many times.

That’s the point.

Hide the truth in plain sight.

Teddy took another drink and thought about one of the classes he took at Tufts – Turn of the Century American Literature. The professor had specialized in Mark Twain.

“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.”

The secrets hidden away by the Department of the Interior were haunting and left the world in a state of implausibility. Monsters from folklore, occult terrors, and the secrets buried and lost by long lost civilizations and forgotten continents better left to the dead. Things society wasn’t ready to handle, things society had to be protected from – and that was Teddy’s job. To investigate these secrets, find a tiny bit of digestible truth in it and serve it to society as a gluttonous meal.

Click Click Click

The key’s began to click and clack and a new idea began to take form; Whistles on the Wind – a story about the beasts that stalk the forests of Appalachia.

 


I’ve never played this game before but as a big Mythos fan with an Elder Sign tattoo I felt obligated to apply.

@wodine: nice! I forgot to add that the scenario starts in February of 2001. We can adjust the dates accordingly.

Oh yeah that's not a problem. I just assumed modern meant today but the dates can all just be dialed backwards as appropriate.

Hey all: Quick update as I was not clear on the original post: Your character would be what is know as a friendly. You do not know of anything called Delta Green. You may have suspicions... maybe... but nothing more. @Aethera: Your corpsman might have noticed the removal of patients and thought it was suspicious... but nothing more than that.

Also the Veteran of the team is a doctor. I have zero issue with you being a Corpsman as well. I care only for the story and the writing.

@wodine: I love your app! I'm interested how Teddy will handle leaving his comfortable desk and being thrown to the wolves. The plan is for everyone to have a little bit of an introduction to get the ball rolling and then assemble the team.

Honestly, probably not well. But that's the fun of horror!

I'm assuming the profile "Agent's Notes" are written from the perspective of whomever Delta Green sent to do the background check, not from Frankie's point of view. I've italicized the note about Delta Green so it's separated somewhat.

I'm good with being a corpsman with a veteran doctor. Probably should've asked, but oh well. She's definitely trained to be in the field (even if she's more support at "present") so she's not a civilian. Hopefully that will be enough difference between the characters.

Out of curiosity, who's playing the veteran MD?

Potential interest, just need to think of a character that would work.
