Spoiler Section (Highlight to Read)
As FBI agents, the investigators are brought into a case of 13 missing persons in the San Carlos Indian Reservation, Arizona, where they will have to work together with the state and the Apache tribal police. In fact, these people are all dead, killed by the ex-Green Beret Emanuel Santana, who is being controlled by the extraterrestrial parasite known as the Traveler.
The Traveler is not only being chased by the police, but also by the Majestic-12, a secretive, high-level government organization, who is trying to take possession of the Traveler for interrogation and dissection. As the scenario advances, investigators receive the help of Ms. Green, a Delta Green operative. At the end of the scenario, Ms. Green invites the investigator(s) to join Delta Green.

Campaigns / Scenarios: Delta Green (Campaign)
The scenario is a good source of information to anyone interested in the Traveler, with a detailed description of how he operates, moves and transfer itself from one host to another.
As stated by the author, this is intended as a beginning scenario with which to kick off a Delta Green campaign. As such, it assumes that the investigators are not members of Delta Green and have no substantial experience with the paranormal. The scenario is designed to three or four players, but if used as a beginning scenario for a Delta Green campaign, it should be run for one or two investigators.
