Tweet of the Day, I’ve Never Gotten Into Audiobooks… edition.

…but I know that people who read me do get into audiobooks.  And I did read and like Delta Green: Tales from Failed Anatomies. Heck, I’d hope that I would; I did the Kickstarter for it. So check this out.

Moe Lane

PS: I’ve actually wondered from time to time why I don’t get into audiobooks. Maybe I like going back and checking the text too much? It’s hard to do that with audio.  At least I perceive it as being hard.

Tweet of the Day, Successful #DeltaGreen Op On Atlanta’s I-20 edition.

They’re talking about a gas leak – or lack thereof – because a portion of Atlanta’s I-85 caught fire at the end of March (first picture below).  Ironically, that one was actually part of an Ordo Veritas veil-out.  OV and Delta Green tend to get along surprisingly badly, considering that they’re essentially in the same line of work…

Ooh, crossover adventures!  It’d be a memorable game.  And a short one, too.

My @DeltaGreen Shotgun Scenario “Operation HAMSTER DIAMOND.”

operation-hamster-diamond-google-docs

Alas, it did not win the Delta Green 2016 Shotgun Scenario contest.  Heck, it didn’t even get a vote (I was competing, so I didn’t think that it was appropriate that I vote for mine).  There was a missing sentence at the end and I needed to tighten it up a bit here and there before putting it up now, so that’s fair.

Still, I think that it’s a workable Delta Green scenario, so here you go. Also, check out the entries in that link! Sure, they didn’t recognize my greatness: but there are certainly enough adventures there to fill a campaign…

Today is the last day of the Delta Green Shotgun Scenario contest.

I have sent something in to the Delta Green Shotgun Scenario contest, and I can’t tell you what it is and I don’t want anybody to try to suss it out, either. The submissions are supposed to be anonymous. But if you haven’t finished yours yet, hey, you still have three hours left to get in on it…

The 2016 Delta Green Shotgun Scenario!

Heck yeah I’m doing it this year:

It’s time for the annual Delta Green Shotgun Scenario Contest!

As usual, the aim of this year’s contest is to write short scenarios. In keeping with the Man in Black’s original definition, mere scenario seeds are perfectly welcome, including evocative artifacts, species, themes and cults. Everyone is invited to participate and advertise.

Worth it for the bragging rights, although a gift certificate to DriveThruRPG is always welcome.  Effective 1,500 word limit; contest ends 12/10/2016.  I encourage folks here who know Delta Green to come up with something for it: the more the blasphemously gleeful gibbering their daemonical laughter at the ghost-haunted moon, is what I always say.

Adventure seed: A Clockwork Yellow. [Delta Green]

A Clockwork Yellow

Background: In 1995, some idiot in Burnaby, British Columbia decided to use The King In Yellow as part of an experimental and flatly illegal psychological reconditioning study using criminals.  And ‘some idiot in Burnaby’ is about as detailed as a description as one can make, these days: part of the fallout of that particular disaster was the permanent erasure from human language of the phonemes that made up that man or woman’s name. Don’t think about it too hard, particularly if you have a family history of neurological incidents.  The resulting disaster turned out to be of the ‘time bomb’ sort, rather than the ‘Azathoth has been summoned’ sort: while the staff all went messily and flamboyantly mad – like you do – the reconditioning appeared to …work, sort of.  At least, all the subjects went permanently catatonic, which is not the worst thing that can happen when you’re exposed to Carcosa, right?

Unfortunately, the investigation was handled by Canada’s anti-Mythos government agency (M-EPIC) – and, just as unfortunately, M-EPIC’s remit has mostly been involved with Ithaqua cults and the like.  Cleanup squads knew to close down the site and cover up the evidence; and the original researchers typically found new and exciting ways to commit homicide-suicide while still in custody, and before trial.  But the research subjects were allowed to live, in the hopes that they’d wake up.  Which they never did: the last one died in 2014, still on a respirator.  By then, the relevant M-EPIC staffers had all done the usual round of retirement, resignation, reassignment, gone mad themselves, or committed suicide; which meant that nobody was left on this plane of existence who still possessed any institutional memory of the original case.

Delta Green doing a creative contest!

This looks like fun:

Admittedly, I’m a better writer than I am a graphic designer, but it’s still something I can maybe finesse.

The horror that is 2016 has lightened a touch: Delta Green books!

Huzzah!

IMG_1704

And I hear that the 7th Sea books are on the way, which should help with the absolutely disastrous negative karmic environment just a bit, too. Gimme an update on Unknown Armies and I’ll even whistle a bit of a happy tune.  Well, a few bars at least. The full melody would need, I dunno, an In Nomine Kickstarter or something…

My PJ Lifestyle piece on the differences in tone between the 1st edition Delta Green and the 2nd.

Found here. Short version: …it’s interesting how a roleplaying game about government conspiracies and cosmic horror can shift over the course of eighteen years. 9/11 casts a very long shadow still, and Delta Green cannot avoid the effects any more than the rest of us did.

The utter frustration of tonight… they pick NOW to drop the Delta Green Agent’s Handbook PDF?

I’ve been staring at it for the last hour, only I couldn’t touch it because CNN WOULDN’T CALL THE RACE FOR HILLARY AND I SAID THAT I WOULD COVER THAT RACE FOR REDSTATE. Arrgh! But, thankfully, I can go read the PDF now.
