One such crew will attempt to accomplish multiple jobs at once while on site. Will they make a profit or will their greed doom them? Find out as special guest players Adam Scott Glancy (preorder Delta Green!), Peter Nielsen, (author of Galaxy Inc.) Micah Nielsen (check out Drunken Dwarf Designs for great LARPing gear) and RPPR’s own Faust (check out Thrilling Intent!)
A remote hypercorp research facility buried under the surface of Mars holds dark secrets and Firewall wants to know what they are. Before a team of sentinels can enter the base though, a Firewall hacker must open the door for them. The hacker has enlisted the aid of several random egos stored in the facility’s system as a last ditch effort to breach security. The base is already on lockdown and most of its personnel have mysteriously disappeared.
A Cultural Resource Management field archaeology team in eastern New Mexico has uncovered petroglyphs connected to a known cult (keywords CTHULHU, DAGON). The survey is being conducted after workers for Innskeep Energy discovered artifacts on the site. Preliminary research has indicated the site was connected to operation GRANITE ORION. Initial analysis of operation documents indicates that the site is in of itself dangerous and steps must be taken to prevent any development on it.
Agent ATHERTON works for the EPA and will take the lead for Operation UMBER FARM. We believe our best chance is to condemn the site as hazardous to human life to prevent future development. All artifacts connected to flagged keywords must be confiscated or destroyed. Civilians must not gain knowledge of the Group unless they are inducted as Friendlies. An office park in Santa Fe has been rented under a holding company Consolidated Synergy. Key cards, burner phones, and documentation for the company is being couriered to you now.

HOLDEN will act as your handler for this mission.
A group of bar buddies discover that one of their friends has radically changed his life and seems to be an abusive relationship. They investigate to see if they can help him out of the relationship but soon learn that things are not as they seem. The friend has delusions of another girlfriend, a perfect manic pixie dream girl, while a shady barfly knows too much about the dark secrets behind what’s going on. Four men plunge into the occult underground without knowing what they’re doing or exactly why.
A new group of takers has formed in the enclave of Trabajo, looking for work. A client in the Recession wants them to retrieve a painting, Thomas Eakin’s “Cowboy Singing” from a museum in Denver. Venturing into the heart of a city is never easy or safe, but the pay is worth it.
This is the first of three games I ran in different systems, linked by famous paintings, a triptych if you will. Enjoy!
