INTRODUCTION TO THE DELTA GREEN ROLEPLAYING GAME (COMING SOON)
Below is a work in progress. Those who pitched in for our last Kickstarter have been seeing the manuscript grow and change. There's a ton more to come. Keep an eye out for the Delta Green RPG Kickstarter. It's coming up soon (ish).
Players come to Delta Green for all kinds of reasons. They’re eager to solve a mystery, kill a villain or destroy a monster. These outcomes are possible, but never simple. Sometimes even seeing the threat in a Delta Green operation is enough to destroy a group of agents utterly.
So consider this overview a warning.
Delta Green is about fear.
It may seem to be about other things from time to time. About manipulation. About power. About control. It has all these things, but that’s not what it’s about. It lies.
Delta Green is about an agent, alone and off the record, breaking into an old woman’s house in Brooklyn because for a split-second she cast the shadow of a hunched, monstrous thing with jaws like a jackal.
Delta Green is about two women who pulled off the heist of the Mayan codex from the American Museum of Natural History, an operation six months in the planning, only to burn the stolen book in a pyre of gasoline and wood in an abandoned field, mourning their lost teammates whom it drove to madness.
Delta Green is about watching from the Blackhawk jump seat as something bigger than the forest snatches your strike team’s copters, each of them 11 tons, from the air like flies.
Delta Green is not about guns.
Delta Green is not about a bug hunt.
Delta Green is not about understanding.
Delta Green is about the end.
The end of everything. Your family, everyone you know, your country, all life on Earth. It’s about the end of everything and your place in it. Because you’ll end, too. That’s what the fear is about. That’s what the game is about.
Delta Green is about the end of everything and how much of it you’ll live to see.
