Pardon the long title. I have an idea for a Delta Green scenario inspired by Kali Ghati, the film The Objective and a recent thread about cults dedicated to Cthuga. Basically, the Agents will have to make a long journey from a US base in Afghanistan to a remote part of Northwest Afghanistan in order to check out what Delta Green believes to be hypergeometric activity detected by observation satellites.
I want to include some level of resource management in this scenario (limited fuel/food/water) but I don't know exactly how to go about it so any suggestions are appreciated.
Seeing as the scenario is ultimately a journey from point A to point B, and there are a number of events I want the Agents to experience, I was also wondering how I might be able to minimise railroading of the players. I guess I could offer various 'crossroads' for the Agents to choose with their own time and resource management costs or which lead to different events, but any examples or different suggestions anybody has for this would help.
The thread about handling descriptions of travel helped me too in thinking about how to describe the journey and not make it seem boring or uninvolved, but with the journey predominantly taking place in what is effectively a wasteland with few landmarks of note I don't know how much good unique description I can do before it just becomes repetition of how desolate and dry the plains are. Again, any suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any replies, I can elaborate on my ideas and comments if necessary.
