    The Fall of Delta Green


    PoC

    The Fall of Delta Green from Pelgrane Press adapts Arc Dream's Delta Green RPG to Pelgrane's own Gumshoe system, with Kenneth Hite creating a work focusing on the Delta Green of the 1960s leading to the official dissolution of the organisation at the end of the decade, following the fateful events in the jungles of Indochina.

     

    Curious? There's a sampler available (PDF, 37 MB) as well as free downloadable Character and Handler sheets on Pelgrane's web site, along with a Development Diary by Ken and a spotlight on Ghouls in The Fall of Delta Green.

     

    The Fall of Delta Green also highlights that increasingly tricky problem of when something is actually "out". When it's available in PDF to KS backers (January), in PDF to sell or general print retail? (US early/UK late June) It becomes difficult to determine when something is suitable for reporting as "news". As such these days it's probably better to think of Yoggie's Front Page as providing a highlight/feature point (like our podcasts) rather than up to the minute breaking information (though it can still do that). The quickest and most responsive methods today remain our forums and Twitter feed. We adapt to a changing world (as we've done for 20 years) – thank you for sticking with us.

     

    The Fall of Delta Green

    It is the 1960s. The stars are coming right.

     

    The United States declares war on poverty and sends half a million troops to Indochina; desegregates voting booths and shoots rockets at the moon. Everyone believes that if we put our mind to it and our backs into it, there's nothing we can't do to make the world better, for America and everyone else.
     
    You know that this is a lie. You are an Agent of Delta Green, an authorised but unacknowledged black program of the United States national security establishment, tasked to hunt and destroy the Cthulhu Mythos. You know that plans and ideals, peace and love, matter less than a single atom drifting in the galaxy. All you can do is rage against doom, burn out your mind and body, and damn your nonexistent soul keeping your family, your country, your planet, ignorant and safe for one more day.
     
    Written by Kenneth Hite, The Fall of Delta Green core book adapts Delta Green: The Roleplaying Game from Arc Dream Publishing to the Gumshoe system. It opens the files on a lost decade of anti-Mythos operations both foreign and domestic, the last days of Delta Green before the Joint Chiefs shut the program down in 1970.
     
    Players take on the role of Delta Green operatives, assets, and friendlies, in deadly one-shot adventures or a campaign spanning the years from hope to madness. Hunt Deep Ones beneath the Atlantic, shut down dangerous artists in San Francisco, and delve into the heart of Vietnam's darkness.
     
    The Fall of Delta Green features:
     
    • Lethal combat and covert action in the 1960s, featuring assault rifles, flamethrowers, mortar shells, spy cameras, truth drugs, and getting rid of the bodies Delta Green operations always seem to leave behind.
    • "Back in the World" vignettes that let you explore the human side of your Agent's life – and often track their slow destruction by Delta Green.
    • The rich world of the Delta Green Mythos, including a gazetteer of unnatural lands, the desperate truth of Hastur, and period takes on the top-secret MAJESTIC program, the Nazi Karotechia, the alien Greys, and the decadent Cult of Transcendence.
    • Detailed advice for making mysteries, magics, monsters, and Delta Green operations.
    • Interoperability with Night's Black Agents, Trail of Cthulhu, and The Esoterrorists: Use your favourite Gumshoe rules to battle the unnatural in the 1960s!
     
    The decade begins in sunny optimism, and ends in nighted disaster in the jungles of Indochina.
     
    After the summer of the 1950s, now comes the fall – the Fall of Delta Green.

    @PelgranePress generously sent along a print copy of The Fall of Delta Green (FoDG). It is indeed a handsome book (as you can see) and full colour rather than the originally stated two-colour. We'll be talking about FoDG in the early July edition of News from Pnakotus and afterwards it will become a giveaway!

    If you bought FoDG direct from Pelgrane Press then they have just added their Free RPG Day 2018 PDF file to your Pelgrane Bookcase Download section under your FoDG purchase (it includes a FoDG scenario and a Cthulhu Confidential scenario).
