Delta Green: Pulvis Et Umbra Sumus

Reminder: You only have a few days left to get your RPPR Enamel Pin by backing our Patreon!

Delta Green has an unusual asset, a person who can provide vital information on any number of investigations. She is a volatile asset though, so keeping her…intact requires work on the part of Delta Green. But when she reports on a potentially cataclysmic threat, a cell of agents is dispatched to investigate a small community in Maine to find the threat. This scenario is taken from Fear’s Sharp Little Needles.

  1. hmmm

    what was the poooint about the crystal legs lady intro? that coulda been a whole scenario by itself, and it was super cool as far as it went, but most Delta Green games don’t have a “how you got the oracle that let you know a Night at the Opera was coming” stage, right? it was almost like the beginning of God’s Teeth done rull summary, right?

    it was still pretty fun, tho, I miss Caleb and Bill teasing Ross and Aaron and Tom were comfortably familiar too

    1. Thematically, DG is about dealing with the unknown and chaos you can’t understand. I thought an incongruous setup would emphasize that.

    2. The written scenario is too short for a full game.

    3. The scenario, as written, doesn’t have a great angle for DG to get involved. Having an oracle that magically points them in the right direction before the ritual happens explains that.

  3. I really liked the starting setup, and the entity was “fresh”. Really cool.

  4. I also liked the starting setup – I’ll use something like it in my next DG game. Overall, I thought the scenario worked pretty well.

  5. The setup and ensuing game were great! Huge sanity losses. I thought- “must be dealing with a GOO or something.” I will have to check that one out in the lore.

    Love it when the players have to decide to sacrifice their own lives or live a hermit life, etc… Great episode.
