Synopsis: At Gencon 2012, we were fortunate enough to play and record the playtest of a World War 1 scenario written by Mr. Glancy and Frank Frey. In the Blegian city of Leuven, a man is murdered in an impossible manner – taken out of a locked room and thrown from a great height, his body dashed across the street a great distance away. The German occupation force wishes the murder solved quickly and without incident. To that end, they’ve assembled an unlikely task force of Belgians, Americans, and Germans. Given the backdrop of war, atrocity, and the occult, can this group of investigators find the real murderer before it’s too late?

Scott Glancy of Pagan Publishing ran an epic Delta Green game at PAX 2011, based on material from our very own Tom Church’s Divine Fire scenario. In this case, the secrets of occult nuclear technology first developed by the Nazis were eventually acquired by the Libyans. Now a group of specialists must retrieve the scientists behind it and stop the program while the Libyan civil war rages on! Of course, things don’t go according to plan. Find out exactly what goes wrong and how the team reacts, especially when they meet a familiar face…
At Gencon this year, Caleb and I sat down for a chance to play in one of Adam Scott Glancy‘s WW1 Call of Cthulhu games. This time, we were pilots for British Army on a night time bombing mission. 3 de Havilland DH4 planes, each with a pilot and gunner. Unfortunately, one of the bombs was dropped on the wrong place and certain seals are broken. Find out what the hapless pilots awaken and if they make it back to friendly territory!
In this investigator’s opinion, COL Wade’s motive for launching OPERATION OBSIDIAN was his obsessive need for revenge. This investigator now believes that COL Wade was more deeply affected by his previous experience at Angka Watt temple complex ruins during OPERATION GLASS SLIPPER than his post-mission psychological examination revealed. OPERATION GLASS SLIPPER was successful, insomuch as the entity known as the Black Buddha was detached from this dimensional reference, but it was not killed. CAPT Wade’s responses to Dr. Roth indicated he believed that the entity would have been eliminated if the team had access to sufficient firepower. It is this investigator’s belief that OPERATION OBSIDIAN was COL Wade’s attempt to test that theory. Unfortunately, Wade’s methods were…unsound.
