Plot Summary>HERMES ALERT

//Urgent Transmission. Cell requests immediate response.//

At 01:30 GMT today, our Cell leader ordered us to intercept an NDD operation to recover a crashed alien craft. At 22:40 GMT today, three operational members of the Cell and three staff support members ambushed four NDD agents after they finished loading the craft onto a flatbed trailer for transport, presumably to Dulce. In the course of the interdiction, all operational members of the Cell were terminated.

We support personnel survive. One operative is wounded. We have secured the truck and are awaiting backup. The current location of the truck and craft is the Red Truck Stop and Diner on interstate 37, exit 46. We are filing this HERMES report using emergency pass codes given by our Cell leader. We understand we will have no further access to HERMES through this unit.

We will monitor a nearby phone. The number is 555-7457. We expect to hear the codeword 'bluebird'. We will repeat with the codeword 'lighthouse'. Repeat, we request immediate attention.

See <Annotation>

>HERMES HYPERLINK: ANNOTATION

//mission parameters and responsibilities.//

Responding Cell or Cells are hereby given full authority and responsibility for the truck and its cargo.

Top priority is assuring the safe arrival of the recovered craft at the Groom Dry Lake Research Facility in Nevada. Consult your HERMES link once Nevada is entered for exact drop-off location and procedures.

Second priority is ensuring the highest secrecy is maintained concerning the identity of the craft. Destruction of the craft is preferable to recovery by the NDD. Information leaks should be dealt with swiftly and completely.

Operative should expect that the recovery of the truck and its cargo to be of paramount importance to the NDD, and highest alert should be maintained for the duration of the transport. Operative should be prepared any contingency and should expect that the NDD may attempt to destroy the cargo if recovery seems impossible.

See <Personnel Profiles>


As the x-files mini-series is scheduled for this month I thought it would be fun to play the introductory game kit for Conspiracy X, available for free online.

In this RPG players are members of a secretive cell of xenohunters, codename Aegis, whom protect earth from both alien influence and that of the rival organization the National Defense Directorate (NDD).

Available Characters:

Dr. Carla Stevens
Cell Leader

Dr. Stevens was originally recruited to work with the Department of Defense, working on ultra-secret biochemical research, working on antidotes and countertoxins to potential biological warfare threats. Disillusioned by the amount of actual "good" she was doing, she moved to the CDC to prevent pandemics and outbreaks of disease and viruses. She had only been with the CDC for a matter of months when she stumbled upon Martha Hilston, a psychic for MKULTRA. Discovering the secret psychic program, she was recruited into Aegis. Her first cell, with Martha, met with disaster at the hands of the NDD, and only Martha and Carla survived. Carla was assigned Cell leader, a cell leader determined not to lose another agent again.

Brett Davison
FBI Agent

Brett Davison was abducted by the Greys at the age of 14. At least he's convinced himself he was, and in truth he probably was. But ever since the incident, he's been obsessed with alien activity and trying to find the truth. When the boom in interest in alien activity surged in the 1990s, he followed his small-screen idol and did everything necessary to get himself accepted into the FBI. Once recruited, he continued to ask too many questions until, in his determination, he tried to use his FBI credentials to access Area 51. Rather than being laughed off of the property, he was recruited into Aegis, though this will be his first mission for them. Little does he know if he fails in this 'audition', his memory will be modified and he will return to normal service.

Martha Hillston
Psychic

Martha was 13 (and had a different name) when her psychic abilities manifested. Initially, she thought she was simply going mad, but her hunches of what was happening in other locations were just too accurate to be ignored. Her parents thought something was wrong with her, and sent her for tests at a medical facility in Delaware, where she promptly vanished. After many years of training, indoctrination and reprogramming by MKULTRA, she has proven herself not the most powerful of their psychics. While she still has use in the program, she has been released into society to maintain a relatively civilian life - although on-call for the newly formed Aegis cell.


Thomas Lindermann

DEA Agent

Originally trained as a dog handler for the police, Thomas progressed and was recruited into the DEA, using his skills handling animals to help track drug shipments. Discovering what he thought was a case full of drugs, Thomas accidently stumbled upon an Atlantean smart-briefcase, the automated defenses sprung to life and it looked like it had taken the life of his dog, Caleb. An Aegis cell was nearby, most of which was caught up into a fight with the Atlantean, but Thomas managed to evacuate the two surviving agents in his car. He was recruited into the cell shortly afterwards, though it seems his dog, Caleb, has survived, appearing at his apartment a few hours later.

As an X-Files fan, I'm just going to say it's good to see such a game being offered here this month.

As a site Moderator, I just have to mention to please make sure that any links to the system sourcebooks are to legally available source materials. No worries, just mentioning it as it's an uncommon system.

I got mine off drive-thru rpg.com.

Here is it
(perfectly legal) on the Eden Studios website. It links to drive-thru RPG, though.

I'm overwhelmingly excited that you're actually running a Conspiracy X game. I heard about it almost by accident, and the manual got me hooked. I'd love to play as Dorian (the ICE investigator). Or anyone, really.

As I've run this campaign before as a DM, I do have some knowledge of what generally happens, though it's been a long, long time since I've played ConX and this campaign in particular. You have a solid promise from me that I will not metagame or reveal anything about what happens to the other players. I am a long-time roleplayer and I can work well within the confines of secrecy.

EDIT: I have a (legal) electronic copy of the core rulebook. I'm willing to share with Manimal6, as I can legally make one other copy.

OTHER EDIT: Game runs on unisystem, the basic rules of which are located here

Sweet.

I picked the free campaign just to see if I could drum up enough interest. If you know anyone else, let 'em know!

I am trying as hard as I can to convince some of my real-life roleplay buddies to come and join us.

In the meantime, can you lock me in as playing Dorian? Or rather...Detective Johnson? Heheh.

Brett Davison sound like he'd be fun to play.

Now that we have (3) players, I'm going to see if any more people join up, and then attempt to get things moving over the weekend.
