Call of Cthulhu: Blood and Forge

An middleman named Mr. Bartlett hired a crew of mercenaries in 1899 to help his client ‘acquire’ some land in Montana near the town of Eden. The crew rolls into town expecting to intimidate a few locals into signing away the land but they find something far darker, something forged in blood.

Stories from the Grave: Dark Ultimatum – A Neil Breen Tale

The Shadow Council wants to control society through fear and violence. To that end, they use their most deadly secret agent to devastate Las Vegas. Can a group of survivors find the agent and convince him to see the errors of his way? We ran this using Stories from the Grave, a RPG from the same people who made Slasher Flick and aims to emulate anthology horror movies and shows like Tales from the Crypt.

Delta Green: Night Floors – Featuring Pretending to be People

The cast of Pretending to be People, a Delta Green AP podcast, agreed to let me run them through Night Floors, perhaps my single favorite DG scenario. An artist in New York City has gone missing under circumstances unusual enough to merit Delta Green’s attention. A team of FBI agents comb through her apartment building for a clue only to find a mystery that perhaps should not be unraveled.

Night’s Black Agents: Direct Action

Protests rock Seattle over a G8 summit meeting held there and new laws expanding the powers of the police force. A group of intelligence experts are retired from their former careers and now work with activists to teach them basic tradecraft and help journalists reveal the truth. Why? They all share one thing in common – guilt over theirpast actions. Crowdfunding news sites pay you consulting fees, which pays the bills. That’s enough. Today’s protest should be interesting – street theater, big demonstrations, riot police…What could go wrong?
