    Deception is a right. Truth is a privilege. Innocence is a luxury. Born of the U.S. government’s 1928 raid on the degenerate coastal town of Innsmouth, Massachusetts, the covert agency known as Delta Green opposes the forces of darkness with honor, but without glory. Delta Green agents slip through the system, manipulating the federal bureaucracy while pushing the darkness back for another day — but often at a shattering personal cost.

    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 doing your job.
    Delta Green is about the end, and how much of it will you live to see.

    And I am looking to run this amazing tabletop RPG for 4 players every other Sunday afternoon. Is there interest? I sure hope so!

    (I will run this RPG concurrently with our ongoing Burning Wheel campaign.)

    Sounds interesting but I couldn't keep up with both Burning Wheel and Delta Green at the same time - that's too much R in my PG.

    Yeah, I realize that for many folks currently in the Burning Wheel campaign it might be a tad too much. I just really want to play more RPGs, get better at running them and run different types to keep my wandering mind sated.

    Too bad though, since I am really excited about this. But if there isn't interest, I'll see if I can find a different group to run it with!
