Delta Green: Bestow

A group of untested agents have been asked to assist a rare book dealer who appears to be suffering from a mental breakdown. However, the dealer has fled into the Coxeter Museum, a small art museum and gallery. When the team enters the building, it quickly becomes apparent that the building’s interior is unlike any other structure they have ever encountered. It is a maze beyond their wildest imagination. Is escape even possible?

This scenario was an entry in the 2016 Shotgun Scenario contest. The map to the museum can be seen here. I also added another shotgun scenario, Unfriendly by Bret Kramer, as a hook to get the PCs into the museum.

Trail of Cthulhu: Uku Pacha

After the discovery of Machu Picchu, other explorers and archeologists searched for other Inca ruins. A confession of a Spanish occultist who died during the Inquisition is discovered in a library’s archives in the 1930s. It mentions a hidden tomb high up in the Peruvian mountains. Soon, an expedition is formed to look for the hidden tomb but they will find more than treasure buried inside.

Red Markets: Fallen Flag – Episode 13

Just One Last Score. Mr. JOLS. It is time for Fallen Flag to seek out Two Banners, a theme park held by a violent cult of archivists. The territory and its resources are invaluable, so Fallen Flag must push the cult out to succeed. Of course, there’s a reason why no one else has wiped out the cult. Their secret weapon may be too much for Fallen Flag to handle, but the die has been cast. Even if the crew takes the water park, what will happen to them? Will they reach retirement? Can they ever be happy again? Find out in the campaign finale of Fallen Flag!

Red Markets: The Great Dismal Swamp

In the decades before the Civil War, runaway slaves found refuge in the Great Dismal Swamp, an enormous expanse of forbidding wilderness on the border between Virginia and North Carolina. They were constantly pressed between the danger of capture and the extreme challenges of material survival in a landscape where even stone and metal were rarefied resources. To this day, only faint traces of their lives and communities can be found deep within the swamp. For one group of new fugitives in the 1850s, their struggles in the swamp are further complicated by a dark force offering an easy way out of their desperate circumstances. What will they choose to do with their hard-won freedom? Ethan adapted the Red Markets system for this scenario, adding some cosmic horror elements (as if economic horror weren’t bad enough).
