Agent Stanfield was tasked with finding the truth behind an artifact that has recently surfaced. He has since vanished. The artifact in question is what appears to be a part from one of Russia’s Venera probes, the only probes to have landed on Venus. A team of agents has been brought in to find Stanfield and retrieve the artifacts. He was last seen in Russia, beyond the jurisdiction of the United States.
In early August 2008, Russia invaded the Republic of Georgia from the North. The Georgian government had expected a Black Sea landing and had deployed its army in the west. Taken off guard, a special forces team was hastily assembled and dropped into the northern part of South Ossetia -a place formally part of Georgia but with many rebel groups wanting to break away. Their mission was to destroy the Roki Tunnel, delaying the Russian army until the Georgians could redeploy. Historically, they failed to destroy the tunnel and instead destroyed a bridge further south and ambushed the Russian armored column, delaying the Russians about a day, but it wasn’t enough. All were lost, but they destroyed a lot of Russian hardware. In this alternate history scenario, a group of Georgian special forces operators attempt to hold back the Russians as long as possible.
Allied intervention in the Russian Civil War was a complex and murky affair, but it did result in many American troops being stationed in Vladivostok in 1919. One company of soldiers was given a mission to bring supplies and munitions to allies near the front, which can only be delivered by an armed and armored train. Little do the soldiers know they will encounter more than cagey ‘allied’ soldiers, corrupt officials, and bandits. Something dark and monstrous lurks in the wilds, something powerful enough to prey even on a train filled with soldiers. This game was recorded at Gencon 2013 and was run by Pagan Publishing‘s Adam Scott Glancy. Enjoy!
