Delta Green: The Enemy of my Enemy

A former Delta Green operative lost his limbs on a mission and retired but the Program still monitors him (as with all retired agents). He recently demonstrated the ability to chase down a group of violent teenagers, causing the Program to question how he was able to accomplish that feat. A team of agents are brought in to investigate the operative. Can they make an accurate judgment? Find out in this special one shot run by DG co-author Adam Scott Glancy!

  1. Wow…It really shows how much whiskey we had that night…Glancy sounds fine, but Ross and I…well…not so much… 🙂

  2. For those interested in what Glancy was talking about, in relation to Japan turning Nyarlathotep into a schoolgirl, the series is called “Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos.” There are three seasons, all free on crunchyroll, with the main cast consisting of Nyarlathotep, Chtugha and Hastur (Sorry Ross, I don’t remember there being much in the way of Carcosa)

    In all honesty, it’s pretty funny, which is what it aims to be, as well as self-aware as to bathing cosmic horror in Fraggle Rock-level antics. But for all of that it’s clear the writer is probably as knowledgeable about the mythos as most of the RPPR cast; there are a metric shit-ton of references through every season that most casual watchers wouldn’t even have a clue about, let alone notice.

    Now, if you want something that will truly upset Glancy, there is a manga series called “The Sister of the Woods with a Thousand Young,” and as you might guess by the name, it’s about Shub-Niggurath. The story is about Shub-Niggurath being summoned accidentally by an orphan and, after taking the form of a girl, promises to fufil the orphan’s wish of having an older sister. It’s uncomfortably sexualized even if nothing actually happens, but I feel like I should warn you that the manga is basically the PG-13 reboot of straight up hentai (porn) of the same name, by the same author/artist. I’d maybe suggest reading the tame version for the sheer bizzare nature of it, but avoid the other side at all costs. Either way, expect to roll some RL san-checks for these.

    TL;DR: “Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos” is a fun watch if you’re already baptized in anime culture and can get past the absurdity of the base concept, but be very wary of “The Sister of the Woods with a Thousand Young,” and for the love of god, make sure you actually find the tamer version if you commit to reading it.

  3. Love the anime reference, always liked that series.

  4. Another alcohol fueled game. A fun listen, but I’m not sure I really like how DG played in this style turns from horror, conspiracy and tension, to “let’s solve the problem and be hilarious on the way”… with bonds just turned into resource management and what not.

  5. Well, considering how drunk the players were, it was a bit difficult to maintain the mood that’s expected from Delta Green.

  6. You can, indeed, tell when Ross has tipped a few back. 😀

    Also, as mentioned, Drunk Ross is hilarious- though not really conductive to a DG mission.

  7. I thought Glancy was talking about this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demonbane
    but in retrospect that turns the Necronomicon into a loli schoolgirl, not Nyarlathotep. (Though Nyarlathotep does appear.)

  8. Just started listening but were you drinking smith and cross rum? Love that rum but it is a tall drink of water and so funky.

  9. Happy to see the return of Sean and Anne ‘Oakley’ to RPPR.

    The cult was a great tactical challenge for DG operatives because of the dream limbs. It is also a good dark mirror for DG teams, because both the cult and DG operate in response to cryptic messages from aloof handlers. Ideally this scenario should have the players really question the ethics of A cell. Alternatively the players come to the conclusion that they are simply an expendable murder squad not unlike the cult they are confronted with.

    The cairn for the dog was a great red herring.

    Another ASG masterwork.

  10. Anne! Back from Masks, so missed!

  11. Is there any way to cut out the eating noises? I had to stop listening early on because of it.
