Important individuals

Martin Andersson

age 23

Student (Gothenburg University, Sweden)

STR 9 CON 10 SIZ 14 INT 14 POW 15
DEX 10 APP 10 EDU 16 SAN 50 HP 12

Phobias: Fear of spiders

Mental Disorders: Extremely protective of his books

Skills: Art (Appreciate Bagpipe Music) 90%, Art (Play Duke Nukem 3D) 69%, Art (Sing) 0%, Art (Tell Politically Incorrect Jokes) 85%, Astronomy 5%, Biology 16%, Chemistry 12%, Computer Use 18%, Credit Rating 25%, Cthulhu Mythos 40%, Dodge 67%, Drive Auto 45%, History 50%, Library Use 69%, Listen 55% (5% when reading), Literature 45%, Mathematics 10%, Occult 20%, Other Language (English) 68%, Other Language (German) 19%, Own Language (Swedish) 90%, Persuade 55%, Physics 10%, Sneak 30%, Sports Trivia 0%, Spot Hidden 40% (5% without glasses or when absentminded), Swim 35%, Useless Trivia (B-Movies, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror, Lovecraft) 95%.

Weapons: None, except an extremely foul morning temper and a twisted sense of humor.

Equipment: Backpack, papers, pencils, pens, boring books on translation theory and Swedish grammar, Swedish driver's licence, usually at least one good book to read on the bus and during breaks.

Equipment at home: Collection of videofilms (mostly lightweight entertainment), CD collection (bagpipe music and even less mentionable stuff),

RPGs (Call of Cthulhu, Shadowrun, GURPS Discworld, Blue Planet), book collection (954 volumes, mostly Sci-Fi and Fantasy).

Appearance: 1.83 m., 77 kilos, very short light-brownish hair, blue eyes, usually unshaven, wears glasses, jeans, long-sleeved shirt, sneakers.

Notes: A nice fellow, if somewhat shy and quiet. Can be very boring and easily gives an impression of egocentricity. Because he is at heart a scholar and theoretician, he is incompetent at using technology — he hates cell phones and answering machines, and is barely computer literate. Violently allergic to horses, slightly less allergic to cats, dogs, and work. Nearly eidetic memory for things he finds interesting; thus he can quote Lovecraft's poem "Nemesis" verbatim, but he can't remember the score of yesterday's soccer match, or even which teams played. Will under no circumstances lend a book to a friend in need, unless he can be 110% certain it will be returned in the same condition. Sometimes signs his name "A. E. Martin Andersson", to make it look a bit more interesting.

Uses as NPC: Almost nonexistent. Completely useless in a fight, because he is so clumsy that he would only hurt himself. However, his passion for all things Lovecraftian could be of some use (he can always amaze his friends with all kinds of useless trivia about HPL and the Cthulhu Mythos), and he can read Late Medieval Swedish after a fashion (though his actual ability to translate it is not very good). Because of his less-than-sparkling personality and unobtrusive manner he is very difficult to notice, and would therefore make an excellent spy or eavesdropper. He is very protective of his own skin and would never do anything dangerous or illegal, but threatening to take away his books could possibly work miracles. In any case, he could be used as cannon fodder.

Jay Armstrong

Nationality: US

Ethnicity: Various Caucazoid, irrelevant as most of my "identifiably ethnic" relatives were long dead before I was around <predictable white American answer, no?>

Simulation Stats:

STR, DEX somewhat above average 13yr. old. Damned shame considering I'm 26.

CON:Average. I get sick a lot because of some acid-reflux nonsense, but on the other hand, I've taken shots to the face and groin that would shock-trauma a lesser fella. I'm hard like a Rock-Em-Sock-Em Robot, but I puke a lot. Kind of a lifestyle tradeoff.

APP: Depends on ya preference, baby. Either somewhat above (handsome N.Euro lookin' fella) or below (skinny and stupid-looking)

INT: Above the 'States average, which isn't saying much. About 10, maybe.

EDU: Umm, I go to a State School. This is my second swing through college. Not very promising, I'm afraid. To my credit, though, I'm really a lot more able at critical thought and introspection than many others. And I _think_ I know a lot… 13-14?

SAN: Oh, I am so sane and grounded. You wouldn't believe. 85 at least:)

Idea: Who cares.

Luck: My Dad's side's Scots-Irish (AKA: "cattle-thieves"), my Mom's pan-Euro Judaic ("running targets"). Oh, and we ended up in_ America_. 13%, maybe.

Money/Assets: Middle-class white fella w/college diploma, and all of the intangibles that such brings…in terms of strict cash, though, I'm doing just fine as well. Numbers? None of your business.

History: Nothing in-game useful, compared to some of the Renaissance men and women we have here, so forget it.

Useful Skills: I can correct written grammar and spelling mistakes really well. But so can a cheap word-processor. I can thrash around like a spastic, and kick people wiv me oxblood bovvas real elegant-like (Steelcap Kick 40%).Other than that, I can talk a lot about useless but fun tripe, and Speculate Aimlessly (50%) about anything else pretty convincingly.

Equipment: Way to much dumb gamer stuff and comic books. Somewhat lighter collection of Real Literature. Lots of tapes of some of the most mean-spirited bands ever…go ahead, ask me me about my musical preferences, I dare ya. Aforementioned steelcaps. Jean jacket.

Other Game Notes: All of the above is pointless, of course, serving only to briefly aggrandize myself in my own eyes. In-game, I wouldn't be an NPC or a Masked Nemesis or whatever. The most prominent position I could realistically hope to achieve would be as "(yet another) dumb jerk who stayed around long enough to see What Was Boiling Over the Horizon, was frozen in a rictus of ecstasy and fear, and subsequently died of heart failure prior to being the First to be Trod Underfoot".

However, assuming things went my way a little better, I might also be useful as "One Individual In An Incensed Mob sent by the devious DG Agents to disturb the everyday goings-on at the Local Organization, which turns out to be front for the Karotechia-Yuggoth Boogie Down Azathoth Posse, and in the Turn of Events that follows, is Blasted Into Nothingness, but serves to Draw Out said cult as Being a Bad Thing, leading to the legitimate Arrest of said cult members". Other than that, I'm of no use to a criminal conspiracy. Hell, I can't even *shoplift* very well.

(Always available in 1999): P90, BMW 320i, bottle of Volvic and sometimes a bottle of "Strohrum", camping gear, some survival gear, loads of books, thousands of MBs of useless data, lots of CDs, 2 photos of "the blonde",

(Available under the same conditions in 2005): Roughly the same set of tools and handbooks (although mostly newer stuff), and a Mercedes Sprinter Van (Quite a lot of room in there, and it is pretty fast, too!)

Apperance: 183cm, 93kg, brown hair, grey-green eyes, (Still about the same)

He could be contacted by agents for his contacts. Within two days, he can get them anything in the field of computers, electronics and within four days, smaller russian, military hardware (bigger things take more time, which is no wonder, since the stuff is aquired through the sons/daughters/nephews/… of the usual dealers). Usually he can be found either at home, in the Friedrich Dessauer Gymnasium (a nice school if you want to study something useless) or at his "potential" girlfriend´s. If not present in one of this locations, he could be in the local RPG club or at a private party somewhere around. He likes getting drunk, in order to avoid noticing to much about other people (see insanities and my "madnessmail" some time ago) but for almost two years by now stays away from other girls. During conversations, he mostly sits back, listens and corrects mistake in an insulting way.
Simply put, I have no idea, why I could be contacted. Since I've been out of my old schools, I'm also out of contact with our friendly-former-russian fellow citizens, so at the moment, I think, I wouldn't even be able to get my hands on Bundeswehr toilet paper.

Phobias: (sometimes) Spiders (That one is hardly a problem anymore)


Hatred - most people after about four months (I can manage most people for more than a year by now.)
Hatred - humanity in general (not very hard, to be true) (Well, I still prefer to be left alone:)
Slightly paranoid (Still there)
Changes schools like others change their underwear (Well, eigth school by now, but since I will hopefully be through with it next year, I don't have any more chances to change)

[1] - Whilst I've never considered myself particularly lucky, I am certainly more mentally resilient than a lot of those around me.

[2] - My girlfriend keeps calling me a violent little psychopath, she could well be right.

[3] - This should be more considering I majored in it but I've forgotten a whole heap. Give me some text books to work from and it probably goes up by 20% or so.

[4] - I know far more about the Mythos than any of my characters ever have, and I've had a character with 15% before. I figure 22% is probably fair…

[5] - I'm brilliant at confusing the computer in Paranoia. How well it would work in real life I've no idea. Although I've been told I instill a sense of trust in people a couple of times before.

[6] - I've never fired a real gun before but I'm addicted to stuff like virtura cop etc. I think the amount of time I've spent playing it with both guns simultaneously and just going for head shots, I've at least got the aiming at stuff part down…

Physical Description: Standing 6'2" and weighing in at around 100 kg. Black hair (dye job) that is almost down to his shoulders and getting longer, with a Goatee. Almost always dressed in Black dress pants with a black T-shirt or dark coloured shirt, and wearing a pair of dress shoes with steel caps.

Equipment / Possessions: '79 Honda Accord (okay condition), Alloy Baseball bat (in car boot), One working PC (plus lots of bits, working and not), A Cage (2m x 1m x 1m, bars about STR 10 - 12), Not enough RPG books (has a copy of Countdown, but no copy of Delta-Green), Plastic Baretta (spray painted black)

Background: Born in Geelong, he has since moved to Melbourne to study Chemistry and computing at Monash University. He works as a computer technician for the University at a nearby hospital (Monash Medical Center).

Personality: Reasonably friendly and easy going. Occasionally irritable when roleplaying at 2 in the morning. :) If he gets really angry it will probably end in a fatality.

Use as an NPC:

Owing to a combination of poor security procedures and lack of knowledge on behalf of the hospital staff, he has access to a large amount of potentialy sensitive information and is able to monitor all e-mail traffic through the hospital network. Whilst not generally useful this information might be needed in a specific instance.

Weapons: Being a Gunfondler and member of the police, assume that in short order, he can get his hands on a handgun or shotgun. As a Dojo member, be assured that he can injure himself badly trying Martial Arts (note appreciable lack of Martial Arts Skill). He's not a bad brawler, though. *Note that his puns can actually do 1d6 of physical damage to his audience.

Equipment: Chevy Cavalier, A couple hundred books of all shapes and sizes, a hundred tapes and CDs with everything from rock to jazz, a baritone saxophone in a beat-up case, an old student model clarinet that he refuses to upgrade, an old Pentium that he likewise refuses to upgrade, a clipboard with notebook paper and musical manuscript paper, lots of RPG books (like we didn't know this??).

Appearance: 5'8"; 260 pounds, chestnut brown hair work short, brown moustache and goatee, glasses. Generally dresses in jeans and a t-shirt.


Born and raised in the suburbs of Washington, DC. Spent a bit of time in college, mostly earning himself 31 credits in General Studies. Worked as a police dispatcher for Maryland State agencies for ten years now. Is engaged to a wonderful Canadian gal, which accounts for his recent change to a sunny demeanor.

Jimmie is a relatively easy-going person, unless he's involved in a debate, which he loves to do. Players will find him a fount of knowledge about all sorts of trivial things, and about police work and music, which are his fortes (no pun intended). Players will likely find him hanging with his friends, singing in a choir near Washington DC, or playing in a jazz band. Otherwise, he's hanging out at Borders Books and Music, waiting for the newest books to come out.

In general, players should find Jimmie genial, but a bit frazzled, unless his fiancée's around to keep him in line.

Equipment: Psion palmtop, mobile phone, Leatherman(tm) pliers (matte black, of course).

Weapons: Hasty Retreat.

Notes: Born in Edinburgh, Scotland 10 days after they landed on the moon. Usual abusive childhood and death of parent led to a reclusion into the world of role playing games juxtaposed ironically enough with the need to express himself in acting, which he first did at age 15 in Goldsmith's "She Stoops to Conquer".

After leaving home at 17 he spent several years on the "dole" doing odd jobs (bartending, grape-picking in France) until he managed to get into the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow. He studied there for three years and had a thoroughly good time, even though he does say so himself.

During that time he took part in various RPG campaigns the most notable being a game of AD&D that had been going on for 8 years with the same people. He finally saw roleplaying done properly.

After drama school, he moved to London and returned soon to work, as all Scottish actors must do, on Taggart. Ironically enough, James McDonald who plays Taggart's sidekick was also a roleplayer.

Several parts in plays, films and television led Scott to the Ukraine to play Lt. Price in Sharpe's Company. It was there, on a battlefield, on horseback, surrounded by the smoke and melee (at least that's how he likes to remember it) he met the Spanish actress Assumpta Serna, who ultimately became his wife 8 months later in the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada. By this time they now lived in Los Angeles (a place where she had lived on and off for about 8 years). To cut a longer story short, up to present he; has been made persona non grata in Cuba (run in with the police on Honeymoon), is the voice of "Carnage" in the Spiderman cartoons as well as numerous voices on Gargoyles and Batman. Worked on various trashy American tv shows (90210, Baywatch Nights), worked with some great heroes of his (Tim Curry, Ed Asner, Keith David), starred in an ABC pilot directed by Marshall Herskovitz called the Castle, set in 13th century England and shot in Ireland with Patrick McGoohan (very interesting man Mr McFadden), James Cosmo, Billy Campbell and James Marsden- which didn't get picked up, recorded a book on tape ("as it is in heaven" by Niall Williams), appeared in an internet pilot called "Royal Standard" in which he plays "Loki" the contemporary embodiment of the Norse God of Mischief or as we know him Nyarlathotep (can see it in June at http://www.den.net ), . His great regret is that he did not have the opportunity to play CoC with Robert Bloch, who was a close friend of Curtis Harrington (Killer Bees 1974) who is a great Lovecraft fan. Curtis was to arrange so that he Robert and Scott could get together and Scott could Keeper for them a scenario.

Robert died before this could come to fruition.

His most recent claim to fame is that he is the voice of Obi Wan in all the new Star Wars:Phantom Menace games for PC, PSX and N64. Because the games follow the movie's plot he knows what happens in the end but promises not to tell you all, knowing the damage it may do to your collective sanities.

He has taken a great deal of pleasure in this pastime know as role-playing over the years and sees it as an an art, neither pure acting or storytelling, writing or directing, but somewhere to the middle of all of those things.

He apologises if his notes are a little extensive, but the life of an actor exists only in his past works and experiences, often undocumented.

Uses As NPC:

Scott is extremely good to have at a dinner party or a social event and has absolutely no problem mixing in any company. His contacts within Hollywood are not on the surface near the top of the foodchain but they certainly are closer to the big fish. It is said that there is 6 degrees of separation, Scott believes there to be only about 3, at least in the entertainment industry anyway.

Assumpta his wife, is probably a better contact. She speaks 6 languages and has been virtually everywhere there is to go. She used to have a secretary that once worked out that in 1992 she got on a plane once every 6 days…

Cleaning kits and various nasty ass ammunition for weaponry. Two avatars of Bast that constantly accompany him through his house while working on the computer, cooking, doing laundry, or trying to get romantic. See separate section for stats.

Equipment: Backpack, indestructible watch (honestly, he's tried), various identification papers that now look nothing like the owner (not false, just different), Keys to Thirty Things,

RPGs (Call of Cthulhu, Shadowrun, Gamma World, Top Secret S/I, Cyberpunk 2020, AD&D (any edition), BattleTech, Blue Planet), ragtag book collection (pick any military strategy War College requirement book, various heavy shit, various fiction shit, still more hard-to-read old shit)

Appearance: 1.65 m.

Roll percentile, on 00-49 will be wearing boxer shorts, on 50-99 will go "commando".

Notes: Usually starts all serious relationships by being called '"asshole". An unintentional byproduct of a carefully developed human screening process. Typically looking over shoulder for The Next Big American Lie. Will watch CNN for five minutes and everything else for approximately thirty seconds (except The Daily Show, cause its the most important Television Show, ever). Appears distracted and avoids eye-contact (not because he doesn't want you to think he's human, but because he's too short to see eye-to-eye with most people). A NORMAL right handed person, practices using left hand for important tasks (shooting, flipping the bird, hey, ambidexterity is trained, right?)

Uses as NPC: Definitely not for the faint of heart or the easily frightened or extremely sensitive. Has been known to start arguments when sex is not available. Also has penchant for looking at cops the wrong way (to his credit he has only ever pursued one with the intention of bodily harm, but the subject was a good little piggy and had a family in his house). Reportedly assumes a "Victory at any cost" attitude, up to the point of laughing maniacally while wailing and being wailed on in a fight. Not a good NPC to take with you on a stakeout, but definitely your man for picking the best restaurant to eat at or movie to rent or spraying bullets in no particular pattern.

* Now steady on, you chaps from the Colonies, do not get excited by the use of the word "Fags". It is a simple British slang term to refer to Cigarettes (a fine American invention), cancer sticks, snout, or the devil's inhaler. No reference to any minority groups of any sexual orientation is intended, so no inference should be taken. If anyone takes offence, then I could really care less, so go get a life, saddo!

Deceptively lean physique, pale skin with freckles, scars on knuckles. Commonly wears chisel-toe cowboy boots, jeans and t-shirt. Not often seen during daylight. Resembles vampiric mix of John Lennon, Charles Manson and Billy Connolly.

Notes: Born Prestwick, Scotland, currently living in Glasgow. Educated at Glasgow University (Electronic Engineering). Works as a computer systems consultant to video, prepress and Web industry. Mr Devlin is an anachronistic Luddite who prefers books to text files and has a violent love-hate relationship with computer technology, other road-users and life in general. Presently kept on the rails by his psychologist girlfriend Carla and his continued practice of martial arts. He is posessed of an eidetic memory and hence is a mine of information on many escoteric topics, especially computers, electronics, alcohol, curries, Oriental cinema and SF/horror stories.

DG agents will likely encounter him when visiting Scotland in (1) a bar, drinking imported Belgian or German beer whilst discoursing on the nature of sex and death, (2) waving his fist at the 'Yank tourists' from a speeding car or bike, (3) in relation to odd occurences in Scotland. He has numerous contacts in the Scottish computer industry, the media, the biker community and amongst fans in the SF/fantasy community. His girlfriend Carla works with mentally disadvantaged clients who, given the DG raison d'etre, may provide a more pleasant introduction to this unsusual character.

Agents might encounter Jay Dugger ("Til Eulenspiegel" on-line) in his professional capacity aboard USS FLETCHER (DD-992). Alternatively, use this NPC in your campaign for investigations involving Pearl Harbor or Air America. This character possesses a keen intuitive sense of self-preservation. This and his libertarian politics make him a reluctant friendly at best. PCs approaching him as private citizens will find him much more approachable.

Description: Height: 6' (180cm), Weight: about 165# (75kg), brown hair (rapidly going thin on top), kindly green-brown eyes, glasses, Vandyke beard and mustache (scattering of white hairs), largish nose, goofy smile, built rather thin but getting soft around the middle. Usually calm, enjoys life tremendously (in general—some specific points annoy him), reads a wide variety of topics, considers himself an open-minded sceptic. Tends to be rather harried these days (Japan has a lot of good points, but the stress-level is not one of them).

Equipment: Gaijin card, expired Texas driver's license, picture of wife, train pass, notebook full of ideas for gaming scenarios and stories, some sour-tasting candy or gum.

Role-playing notes: Stroke beard thoughtfully to cover for confusion. Mix up German and Japanese vocabulary, especially when trying to speak German. Automatically pitch vocabulary, speed, and clarity of English speech to match listener's English ability, and mix in occasional Japanese words even when speaking to native English speakers. If wife is present, maintain physical contact with her as much as possible (hand-holding, foot-touching, hair-stroking, etc). Communicate with daughter in laughably primitive Japanese, gestures, and tickling. If family not present, constantly bring them up in conversation. Watch sumo avidly. Dream of chicken-friend steak with lots of gravy. Check email and exchange rate daily, and then be almost late for work after spending too much time replying to DG-List emails. Try to resist acting like "Cliffie" from /Cheers/, but fail often. Be secretly proud of being the originator of the "eyelids/tongue/balloon-animals" thread.

Campaign notes: If the problem is presented as something interesting, SuperDave could be very useful as a researcher. Once he begins, he hates to give up. However, his utterly poor skills in the local language are an obstacle. Willing to edit people's writings, but only on request. Has a vast variety of contacts in the form of brilliant weirdos around the world. Usually encountered at work or home, but enjoys a nice walk in the park or visiting the local shrines and temples, usually accompanied by family (who, if threatened, could of course be used to control him—but this is likely to inspire ruthless revenge later).

Appearance: 5'7", 167 lbs. Black hair, brown eyes.

Notes: Andrew Gable, or "Gus" as he is known to friends, is likely to be contacted by agents for his extensive knowledge on Forteana and cryptozoology. Most of the time, he sits in a far distant corner away from everyone else and leers at every female who passes by (he will become hopelessly infatuated with her if she at all resembles Gillian Anderson).

Andrew Gable also has a noticable affinity for alcohol, and will be drunk 50% of the time he is contacted by the agents. During periods of drunkenness, he has been known to do bizarre things like sing "Ice, Ice Baby," sit motionless for up to two hours, or claim that the Beastie Boys are black. If at his apartment, there is a 95% chance that KMFDM will be playing on his stereo.

[1] Biology 6 & Cryptozoology 76. Ironic, ain't it?
[2] But still can't parallel park.
[3] Learnt through osmosis. Hey, it was at 8 in the morning.
[4] The answer to every equation is 5. Remember that.

Ever since I read my first H.P. Lovecraft story, "The Outsider," nearly nine years ago (my, how time flies), I've wanted to be a horror writer. The desire to write was strengthened in the next several years, as I voraciously read everything by Lovecraft I could get my hands on. I stood in awe of the self-contained mythology he had created around Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth, and all the rest, and knew that I wanted to create just such a mythology.

In subsequent years, I began reading authors like Arthur Machen, Robert E. Howard, and Ramsey Campbell—authors that either inspired, were contemporary with, or inspired by Lovecraft. I was more sure than ever that I wanted to be a writer and create my own mythology, but I was stuck at the point of not having one.

Then, after several more years of research on mythology and other areas, I made one of the most fortuitous mistakes ever. I was doing research for a paper I was writing on Nazis and the occult when I came across a reference to Jack Parsons, an occultist. A voice in the back of my head told me that this guy was a suspect in the Black Dahlia killing in Los Angeles, and when I read that Parsons died in a fire in 1952, I was convinced this guy was the suspect.

Of course, he wasn't: the suspect I was remembering was Jack Anderson Wilson, who had a similar name, and did die in a fire before he could be arrested, but wasn't the same person I was thinking. Nevertheless (and once again, fortuitously), I'd recently picked up the Delta Green sourcebook and the rest, as they say, is history. I started checking out anything and everything I could find on Parsons, Crowley, and all the others, and started developing a story.

Although I originally created the myth-cycle concerning Tuchulcha, Lam, and all the rest for my planned Yellow Twilight Darkening campaign, as you know the campaign fell apart and never took form. Which is all for the best—the adventures as written were too linear. I felt, however, that the Mythos was too good a story element to go to waste.

As a result, I'm attempting to write a series of fictional storiesand possibly even a series of novelsbased on the events that were to have taken place within the campaign's adventures. At the current time, I'm planning a cyberpunkish mythology dealing with the Tuchulcha stuff in the future.

I'm also toying with the idea of tying Gaeaa world I created that, similarly to Howard's Hyborian Age, is the Earth in the distant pastinto the Tuchulcha storylines. It should be easy enough—that has enough Lovecraftian flavor to fit in, and I use some of the same themes.

[1] She has a mean right hook, as blokes who won't leave her alone eventually find out.

[2] +10% when using on lecturers/tutors at University

[3] Mainly due to being friends' agony aunt. They have a lot of agonies.

Physical Description:

About 5'5'' (varies depending size of heels worn today), and 10 stone, Emma is fairly attractive. Usually wears casual clothes and and little make-up. She wears glasses and is rarely found without her bag containing all that is vital to her life. That'll be her debit card then.

Weapons: A very heavy bag.


Mobile phone (ALWAYS charged), pencil case, pad, wallet containing 3 forms of ID and her debit card, and her RPG folder which holds details of the evilness she plans to release on those who were foolish enough to let her DM.


Generally described by her friends as 'lovely'. Always tries to find a good point about somebody. Slow to get angry, but when she does, everybody within a five-mile radius knows about it. People who do manage to get on her bad side usually find themselves constantly the subject of various sarcastic remarks - however, she is rarely in a mood with anyone for longer than half-an-hour. Past that and you've crossed the line, you're NEVER being forgiven.

One thing that really annoys her are males of the species who can't take 'no' for an answer.

Use as an NPC: Hmmmm… Can handle herself in a fight, but is generally not seen anywhere near one. Most likely to do some research over the internet (or other sources) after being asked nicely. Also has the abilty to look completely helpless and get utter strangers to lend a hand.

Loss of either item is an indication of heavy san loss. John can be used as a surprise encounter in any office Delta Green is involved in.

As a temp, he can show up as the secretary or administrative assistant in virtually any office the Keeper wishes, government or not. Clever players can manipulate his assignments to, say, the offices of New World Industries. Who ever suspects the temp of being anything but incompetent?

May be the only person in existence to teach from The Unspeakable Oath (with Pagan's permission) in a high school classroom. This may also explain why he is exploring alternative employment options…

Anyone who contacts him will have to make a Sanity roll for him not to see them as crazed metal fans, and a successful Oratory roll to convince him that there's anything behind it. In combat situations, Daniel Harms makes a Run away roll or lies on the ground yelling, "Not in the face! Not in the face!"

The only way I would thik of working myself into an adventure woudl be…

a) I spot the agents doing something they shouldn't, but realise they're americans and therefore whtever they're doing has to be newsworthy[1]. Use me as a inept "plucky reporter" style character….who follows the characters around and attracts attention to them.

Weapons: Some of the heavier books he owns could conceivably be used as such.

Equipment: Bicycle, sturdy bicycle bags, 133 Pentium, approximately 1000 books, covering such subjects as role-playing games, SF and Fantasy novels, history, Science, mythology, psychology, and many more, as well as a collection of various magazines like Newsweek, Scientific American, and New Scientist. He usually carries at least one book with him, and usually several.

Notes: He was born in Erlangen, in northern Bavaria, and, despite a short stay in Edinburgh, Scotland, still lives in the vincity and studies there. He initially wanted to study physics because of his interest in astronomy, but changed his Minor to Bio-Medical Engineering after discovering that Astronomy was the only field of physics that had few job opportunities. His main goals are enjoying life and working none too hard (except for money), and hopefully graduating one day. Apart from that, he consistently refuses to take drugs or drink alcohol, in the hopes of attaining the mystical state of "knurdness", which allows humans to percieve the universe as it really is - without any distractions.

Delta Green agents might have to deal with him if he succeeds in his quest to attain this state, in which case the results should be spectacular. Apart from that, getting access to his huge collection of books might be useful - or then again, it might be a complete waste of time. Another reason for involvement with him might result from his work at his university's Department of Bio-Medical Engineering, where he has been involved in simulating heart cells on computers. Who knows what strange harmonics and insights might spring from this involvement with non-linear systems?

[1] The SAN bonus for mastering this skill was squandered with one too many "two o'clock feeding" incidents.
[2] He gets a bonus when dealing with fans of certain obscure conspiracy genres.

Roleplaying Notes: Speak softly (except when dissuading the 4-year-old from sitting on the 2-year-old's head), with a mild southern accent that shows strange New York phrases and accents very occasionally; listen closely, but appear scatterbrained as you inevitably start jotting notes for plotlines and narratives; bore everyone with tales of Cardinal Richelieu, real-world black operations, popular occult lore, or your brief jobs with the Wackenhut Corporation and the NYPD legal bureau; read unnecessary angles into every human interaction but force yourself to discount them; surprise people with your sense of humor; drive your family mini-van like a sports car and watch for cops.

Other notes: Ivey will mainly be useful to Delta Green agents as a collector of odd facts, some of which may have bearing on an investigation, others of which may be useless or misleading, and as a coordinator and contributor of information on the Delta-Green.com disinformation effort and individuals closely involved with it. Enemies with incomplete research may come to him before approaching DG front company Pagan Publishing to attack Delta Green. Incidentally, his wife and three young children make great Dependent NPCs to provide moral crises or hard (hopefully) choices to the investigators.

[1] My (unfortunately now former) lady friend tended to (during our relationship) rate my appearance considerably higher, and even considered me "handsome", but her opinion on the matter at the time was admittedly quite subjective…:)

[2] Considered "mostly harmless"… Encounters with Life (and my relatives, who probably qualify as some Lesser Independent Species), together with severe local politics in the Society for Creative Anachronism, and one viewing too many replay of "Re-Animator" on the Late Show, have cost me a number of SAN points…:)

[3] I have been told I sometimes have the most terrible luck when traveling (cars I am a passenger in sometimes go off the road, run into deer on the Interstate, etc.), but the most incredible luck in surviving the resulting calamities… I am reputed by some to be a Weirdness Magnet…:)

[4] My original computer training was in an earlier era — punched cards, big mainframes, etc. Experience with desktop computers was picked up on my own, and I haven't done any serious programming in over 10 years!

[5] Primarily from reading HPL and some other Mythos authors.

[6] Entirely theoretical… Back in college, I got tired of writing endless business programs, and (using as references a US Army Explosives & Demolition Manual and a 1950's Army Engineers Logistics Manual) wrote a COBOL program that calculated the amounts and placements of charges for various demolitions tasks! (From all indications it worked well, although my Academic Advisor, on finding out about it, ordered me to Cease and Desist! A similar project in current days would probably result in my questioning by various agencies, or attempts at my recruitment by assorted groups of bad guys…) I have since collected other books on demolitions, and sometimes amuse my friends while crossing bridges by explaining where I would place the charges if I wanted to "drop" the bridge…:) Following 9-11 and the increased suspicion by some of people with my talents, I have not been as forward in speaking of them in public!:)

[7] I served as a Herald in the Society for Creative Anachronism for somewhat over 19 years (16 of those as a senior Herald in various staff offices), have trained several new Heralds, and, for several years, held a post as a Deputy Kingdom Herald for the SCA's Kingdom of AEthelmearc. Due to some complex political considerations, I do not currently hold an SCA heraldic office, although I still unofficially offer assistance when necessary, and have served as Cry Coordinator at Pennsic 32 - 37(Deputy Cry Coordinator at Pennsic 38, likely to serve in similar capacity at Pennsic 39).

[8] I learned to read at age 3 (much to the consternation of my First-Grade teachers!) and have been in and around libraries since I was 6 or so. I've worked for the WV State Library Commission, and patrons at various libraries sometimes ask me for advice, figuring I work there! (AFIK, I've never gotten one of them lost yet…):)

[9] Delta Green Gunfondler #688.

[10] Especially concerning Naval History & Submarines. More than once, while visiting a historic ship with friends, I have explained some things about the ship to my companions, only to soon find myself questioned by members of a tour group, who seem to assume I am a guide!:)

[11] Theoretical, mainly from reading books such as "Knight's Seamanship", and "Naval Shiphandling", and articles in "Proceedings of the US Naval Institute" with such titles as "Handling of Spruance Class Destroyers Underway"…

[12] Specialized dialect, derived primarily from Old French, used in heraldic descriptions of coats of arms. Sometimes usable (at a significant penalty) for (somewhat) reading French…

[13] Was once somewhat higher, but has deteriorated through low usage…

[14] Learned from my (former) lady friend Katrina (Lady Katheryne of Kring's Keep), who is currently writing a book on Polish names and heraldry for the benefit of SCA Heralds. Most of the little Polish I know consists of expressions that compliment her, etc….:)

[15] Mainly useful phrases such as "Surrender or die!" and "Where do you keep the chocolate?" (Take it from me, it's _embarrassing_ to confuse those two phrases!) Percentage would probably go up, with sufficient time to refer to Orkund's "Klingon Dictionary" — provided the Klingons do not disintegrate me while I'm flipping pages!:)

[16] Own a quarterstaff, but mainly use it to assist walking at outdoor SCA events, etc. A little theoretical knowledge of quarterstaff combat, but have never actually fought with one…:)

[17] Have only fired an actual firearm a few times (including black-powder muskets and more ancient varieties of "hand cannons" on a few occasions), but have some theoretical knowledge (see [9])

[18] Used a 35-pound Ben Pearson recurve (no pulleys, no fiberglass!), with wooden three-fletch arrows (from Wizard Archery) in SCA target shooting (until it got stolen from the storage place I had put it in!) The % score listed was my Royal Round Average back then, and would probably be slightly lower now due to much less practice!:)

Many times carries brown leather portfolio or attache case with various books, documents, etc. (varying day to day and with personal needs or mood)

(In SCA garb (stand-off scale 16th century — only at SCA events such as the Pennsic War) would leave some of the above behind, but would wear belt pouch with various stuff, eating knife (Gerber Mk II) in belt sheath, wide straw hat (on sunny days, at the insistence of my Pelican…), sundry awards medallions (Order of the Millrind, Order of the Keystone, Order of the Silver Crescent, Sigil of AEthelmearc, Order of the Green Comet) and (when on duty) appropriate Heraldic baldric of green wool with gold crossed trumpets…):)

Lots and lots and lots of books (far more than I really have shelves for); numerous photos of USN ships and aircraft; photos taken at military, space, and naval museums; assortment of tech literature, catalogs, etc from various military and paramilitary suppliers; plastic non-firing replica guns; various swords with scabbards; numerous SCA awards scrolls (on wall) and many photographs from the Pennsic Wars; collections of magazines such as "Proceedings of the US Naval Institute"; collection of audio tapes (mainly classical music), video tapes and DVDs; 2x dome tents of slightly different types; metal-framed cabin tent (damaged by a severe thunderstorm at Pennsic XXIV and not yet fully repaired); camping gear (suitable for camping for approximately two weeks at Pennsic, etc.); various model ships, aircraft, and spacecraft; Gateway desktop computer with printer.

Considerable experience for conducting library research. Knowledge of (and experience in) Heraldry and of the workings of the SCA (at least in AEthelmearc (http://www.aethelmearc.org)), in Medieval/Renaissance warships and Elizabethan-era Privateering.

Some contacts among the very few remaining game shop owners in Charleston WV area and a few mail-order firms elsewhere. Contacts in various military, technical, and historical fields.

Can sometimes be found at SF conventions (generally working Security or as a Gofer), or at events of the Society for Creative Anachronism (generally working in some heraldic capacity — official or otherwise, depending upon the political climate). Operationally oriented, with little desire for political games — which, of course, makes me a convenient target in others' schemes.

Prior to August 2000, could frequently be found in the company of Purple Kat (AKA Katheryne of Kring's Keep), an expert on medieval Poland. (This relationship has ended, and the lady married someone else…)

Notes: This character has been on the list so long he was here, in spirit, well before the concept of e-mail ever slouched out of the lugubrious and echoing depths of some eldritch computer whiz-kid's cavernously empty mesencephalus.

Tall, pale, upper-class looking despite his well worn clothes Lovecraft is essential as a source of inspiration, and can tap a wide and varied network of contacts. His background knowledge is not up to date but he's pretty reliable when it comes to the '20s and '30s.

Loves cats and is very fond of vanilla ice cream and spaghetti with meatballs. Suffers (enjoys?) extremely vivid dreams.

Meeting Lovecraft: Should the players meet HPL during a Delta Green game, a stiff sanity check would probably be in order.

A few thousand books, records and a battered Panda car are also available on short notice.

Appearance: 1.88 m high, massively built, brown hair and eyes (the latter hidden behind photochromatic glasses). Usually wears jeans, a shirt with rolled up sleeves and sneakers or other rubber-soled shoes. And a jacket with lots of pockets.

No tie if he can do without.


Born (1967) and raised in Turin, Italy; scientific studies liberally sprinkled with just anything that struck his fancy at the moment, from stage magic to social psichology. A lot of (often unpaid) odd jobs of the kind that writers do in order to fill their back-cover bio.

A committed anglophile, non-smoker and teetotaller.

Has a fixation (bordering on the fetish) for Queen Elizabeth Tudor and her times.

Under stress, can survive on tea exclusively for an undetermined amount of time.

Roleplaying Notes: speaks English with what was once called "a Southern accent" (geez! Like Tom Petty!), actually his plain Piedmontese drawl superimposed on his English. Often sprinkles his speaking with old-fashioned words, self-deprecating humor and odd quotations. Has a soft spot for lost causes and will generally side with the outsiders in discussions.
Always very kind to young ladies and cats, not necessarily in this order.
Extremely silent despite his bulk, he will generally hover unnoticed at the margin of the conversation nursing, in his own words, "a stiff lemonade" (more rarely a double coke).

Suffers from insomnia.

He usually haunts second hand bookshops, afternoon movie premieres and University halls, not necessarily in this order, and has a rather active on-line life. The players are most likely to get to him sooner or later, as he gives the impression of being always two phone calls away from everything and everyone else.
His name might also surface should someone run a detailed web search on the keywords "Ice Cave".

[1] No degree, mostly OJT and independent study.

  • Sticky hands
  • Brick/board breaking
  • Aikido style chi manipulation

Other languages: can translate the noun in most Latin-based languages. Maybe some verbs.


At home: bokken, knives or screwdrivers in every room. Some big heavy professional kitchen cutlery. Various reproduction medievel/asian swords. Anywhere else: 4" folding knife, pocket screwdriver, anything at hand, hands/feet etc.


Alpha male: can summon the presence (acting!) of a Marine DI and pretty much make everyone do as he says. Only used when sweet reason fails, as it eats up Magic Points and requires much smoothing of ruffled feathers after an application. Only uses it in a professional capacity, and not even then if executives weren't such political primates.

Big picture: can visualize complex systems in action, like an Air Traffic Controller.


In home: big messy library of eclectica, ditto music. Lots of general reference works. 3 working PCs and parts for several more. A garage full of consumer electronics parts, tools and heavy punching bags. A room full of books and exercise equipment. A full suite of emergency/earthquake equipment. Tools. Lots of jugged water, extra dog food etc. First aid kit equipped up to minor surgery. Without anesthesia, however.

Yes, I do have a lot of Heinlein on the shelves. Why do you ask?

Appearance: 5' 6"; 170 pounds distributed mesomorphically with the exception of a hard round belly , shoulder length dark burgundy hair, electric blue eyes behind glasses. Errol Flynn as Robin Hood mustache and beard. This is to hide the distinctive Kerry-spawn stiff upper lip and chin that makes changing a pillowcase an all-day job. Ba dum ching. Thank you! I'll be at the Comedy Inferno thru Thursday.

At work, habitually wears black. At home, an Aloha shirt, Levis, loafers, no socks.

Notes: As a messaging guru, could have some utility as a DG Friendly. Is very well connected in the movie studio IS community. Studied American Kenpo for years and supplemented that with Hwa Rang Do, Lua, Small Circle Jiu Jitsu, and sparring/comparing notes with prison gang members, Crips, Bloods, Rangers, biker bar bouncers, LEOs and instructors of various other martial arts.

Lives with two dogs that he raised with the methods of the Brothers of New Skete. Is accepted as the Alpha Male.

If forced to work with Oracle, Ricardo may, failing a sanity check, decide that the contract is not really worth it. 2) He also has a serious distaste of little kids (anything younger than 14 years) and tries to avoid them as much as possible. 3) When a new computer game from his favorites comes out, Ricardo must pass a sanity check or be completely convinced that his life can't continue without it.

Weapons: None above base

Equipment usually carried; Pocket watch, microcassette tape recorder (with extra microcassette), cell phone, pen, pencil, eraser, book he's currently (re)reading, small notebook, a magazine and diskettes and ZIP disk.

Equipment at home: Countless books and about 200 CDs (about half of which are movie soundtracks), computer, small toys and figures (specially proud of Captain Harlock), and of course his trusty PC which is continually changing parts. Looking around several old and outdated documents and magazines can be found, with everything from a 400 year old arrowhead to telephone bills coming up.

Appearance: 1.75 m high, a little overweight at about 78 kilos (he just started exercising and the benefits still don't show), green eyes and black wavy hair. He can usually be found either wearing or cleaning his black-rimmed glasses which don't have much of an augmentation but save him from splitting headaches. Usually wears faded black jeans, long-sleeved shirts with the sleeves rolled up, sneakers. Add his black leather overcoat is he is outside at night (or cold), and long black umbrella if raining. If going to a client he can be found wearing blue jeans (suit pants if in a dire situation), long-sleeved T-S hirt and suite jacket (either black or dark blue). Sometimes a tie if needed be.

Notes: born and raised in San José, the small capital of small Costa Rica (near 5 million habitants, about 1.5 million of which are Nicaraguans). Son of a history professor and a historian. A movie fan since a young age, Ricardo was attracted to computers by Captain Harlock's computer Tothiro and the movie Tron. He has ever since been obsessed with atrificial intelligence and artificial life with a side order of computer graphics, but unfortunately he gets very little time to practice because of his job. He has been working as a software developer for the last six years, with the last year being dedicated to his own business. A compulsive coffee drinker, he avoid smokers like the plague and is known to ocasionally drink some Irish cream before sitting down to write. Drank Diet Coke until they brought out the foul-tasting beverage known as Light Coke.

He is a compulsive reader and book buyer, and his collection includes anything from the 1930s edition of Homer's complete works to several books in computer science to quite a few Heinlein tomes a few comics (mostly Matt Wagner's Grendel) to a tome in physics and particle systems. He is prone to start both online and software projects which he only finished a year later than planned.

Ricardo has been married for two years, marrying out of mad love and still doing his best not to have a son.

Roleplaying notes: a strong willed individual, Ricardo refuses to give in when he knows (or strongly believes) he is right. In software issues he is more willing to concede a point to somebody of whose knowledge he is aware, but seriously despises anyone that talks like an expert without being one (he _doesn't_ consider himself one either). He speaks English fluently most of the time, unless he is tired or has a headache. Since he picked up most of his accent while working in an used bookstore, it tends to be a non-identifiable patchwork of accents from all over the world, and usually turns to the accent and manner of speech of the person he is speaking with. It has been pointed out that he does this when speaking in Spanish too. In conversation about a topic he is really interested on, he often drifts off wondering about it or starts talking with himself, wondering things out loud.

He tries to hang as much as possible around a friend's bookshop in San José called Mora Books, does his best to go to the movies once a week and is always reading something. He can be contacted by the investigators due to his extensive link of acquaintances, not all of which like him by far and about half of which were acquired in Mora Books.

[1] Ken's Cpt. Kirk is mind-numbing ( 1/ 1D3 SAN ).

[2] If there's a nut in a crowd, he'll gravitate to Ken; whether thanking him for saving their life in 'Nam, or imparting some tidbit of arcana Ken apparently just can't do without.

[3] Ken watched entirely too much TV growing up. Pretty much anything he might've seen on the tube or heard on the radio as a kid went right into his head and never came out. This gives an edge when playing trivia games. As scary as it sounds, some friends have come to depend on Ken's obviously wonky knowledge as relevant in certian RW situations.

[4] An auto accident left Ken with severe Epileptic seizures. During really bad ones, Ken has occasionally seen images he is convinced have actually happened later ( at least a 1/2 dozen times so far ).The problem is when he comes out of it, he rarely remembers anything more than the odd sliver (since its difficult taking effective notes when you're flopping like a fish). Medication has pretty much nipped this marginally useful skill in the bud; though going off-meds for a month or more should kickstart it back to the occasional game-useful level .

[5] An odd side-effect of receiving a head injury, Ken now has what he likes to call Supersmell.

[6] Four years of spanish classes in both JH & HS, as well as growing up in the barrio have done nothing for Ken; knowing only enough to either order food or get popped in the nose.

[7] A decorative solid-brass paperweight resembling brass knuckles.[8] Ken's had some exposure to firearms, but owns none. His healthy respect-for and fear-of firearms combine to assure he'll give them a wide berth.

[9] A fair archer as a kid, but hasn't done any in 20+ years.

[10] An ability acquired at the onset of puberty.

Physical Description: Ken is 1.8m tall and weighs a decidedly unhealthy 137kg. His dark brown hair, once long enough to peg him as a hippie or biker is now short, though still shaggy , and has started graying at the temples just like his hero Doctor Strange. Ken's unkept beard has contributed to him being mistaken for a Menennite on several occasions. He has a mustache and dark brown ( almost black ) eyes behind little round glasses. Ken is usually dressed in "Pizza-Hut casual " (dressed well enough to get into Pizza Hut without hassle ); usually covered by either a navy-blue, zippered & hooded sweater, or a too-big , green Field & Stream jacket. He's been wearing cheap, black-leather dress shoes pretty-much-continually since his days as a Security Guard in the mid '80s.

Equipment Carried: A beige Israeli Paratrooper Medical Bag packed with game stuff ( RQ & CoC mostly ), calculator, bag of dice, papers, pencil, and whatever novel he's reading at the time ( Sharpe's Battle, right now ). A large set of keys with several handy little tools attached; folding scissors, bottle openener, nail clippers, and an old-fashioned Spam key ( y'never know ). Cheap plastic lighter. A couple dollars in quarters. Wallet with non-license MS State I.D, an old college newspaper Press Card from '82, ATM Card, individually-wrapped alcohol pad, a couple of toothpicks, a single-edged razor blade, and at least seven dollars in bills.

Equipment at Home: Three bookcases: Two full of books and magazines; mostly history and mythology, but also including art; as well as a big stack of National Geographics dealing mostly with the Amazon & the Incas; the third bookcase being packed with assorted gamestuff, including a dozen notebooks filled with page after page of tiny, scrawled, SAN-blasting ( 1/1D6 ) usually game-related arcana, and several drawing pads. Three wooden crates of old classical records inherited from his wife's grandmother, and a plastic milk crate full of '80s records. A rotating plastic carosel with around 80 CDs, an updated second-hand IBM knockoff, a shelf packed with videotapes ( mostly Sci-Fi ), and a Pirouline can full of assorted art equipment; including non-photo blue pen and pencils, border tape, and three working Rapidographs.

Notes: Ken was born & raised in Orange, California ( Orange, BTW, has been featured in the films Gumball Rally and That Thing You Do, as well as being a regular location for filming the old '80s show Quincy.Runner Mary Decker, as well as brother & sister pornstars Buck Adams & Amber Lynn are also natives of Orange ). After a practically feral upbringing , Ken grew up living a life like something out of Clerks, Mallrats, Wayne's World, and Rush all rolled into one. During this period he managed to become an unacredited Art & Journalism major; flying through the major-related courses, yet tanking the General Ed requirements. In the late '80s he met his girlfriend Joolz; a Cajun Critical Care Nurse working in Los Angeles. After 3 years they relocated to her hometown in MS; spending the last 8 in The South. After 10 years together Ken & Joolz married, and have recently had a daughter, Kaitlin.

Initially shy and quiet around strangers, Ken is usually thought of as a nice guy by people who don't know him very well. His friends, however, think of him equally as a nice guy and a smart ass. Known for his odd sense of humor ( which has gotten him pegged a "trip" more times than he can remember ) and sacrastic wit , Ken is generally easygoing ; usually joking around in all but the most serious circumstances ( or when he's angry ).The flip side: Ken can be moody and often gets depressed; and can occasionly be an obnoxious, vindictive jerk. A few friends are convinced Ken was born about 600 years too late for his true calling; that of Scribe.

Use as an NPC: None that are immediately obvious. The most likely reason for contacting Ken would be for his contacts; over the years getting to know a pretty diverse assortment of people.

Appearance: 5'10", 190 lbs., black hair, blue eyes, blotchy complexion, poorly shaven, wears glasses, jeans, T-shirt, boots.

Notes: Chris Nichols is likely to be contacted by agents in desparate need of information on general Mythos and paranormal topics, especially The King in Yellow. Most likely, however, agents will find him most useful as cannon fodder. Agents are advised to just steal his binder on TKiY (it's the white one labeled with a Yellow Sign). If contact is required, Chris Nichols will be taciturn and sarcastic, but helpful; the presence of attractive female agents will get him to shut up and increase his pathetic attempts to be of use (field recommendation: send him to get the take-out; he's good at it). In actual combat situations, Nichols will make use of his Wet Pants and Scream Like a Girl skill.

Chris Nichols rents a spare room from a math professor at his college. Nichols can be frequently be found here amid stacks of print-outs and books, and floor-to-ceiling piles of old furniture. He will be reading print-outs or writing for the Secrets of the Kargatane website about 75% of the time. ….Face it, the guy's a complete loser; getting him killed in some op would be doing him and the world a huge favor.

Projects a laid-back, mellow attitude. Spends far too much time in front of computer, as evidenced by his waistline. Plays volleyball, softball and golf, all badly. Occasionally goes to family camp for fishing and hunting.

Players are most likely to encounter this NPC when investigating unusual phenomenon in Northern Ontario, particularly in mines. Not likely to be of much direct help, but can probably steer players in correct direction.

Fully equipped labs (plural), Mac Powerbook, CD and fiction book collection, more papers and textbooks, Passport and prebooked airline tickets all available at short notice.

Appearance: 6'0" tall, slim, brown hair (in serious need of a cut!) and green eyes, glasses, in various states of unshaven depending on the day. Usually wears clothes… and/or labcoat/scrubs depending on location. Girls have suggested that he resembles James Bond, but not when they are A. sober, B. wearing their contact lenses.

Notes: Born in Epsom, England. Occasionally goes back there. An alumnus of the same grammar school that brought you Nick "Crimewatch" Ross, and Chris "Cradlesnatcher" Woodhead (the chief inspector of schools). Currently employed as a postdoctoral scientist in the US. Currently Agnostic (considered becoming an atheist, but didn't really beleive in it). Perpetually stressed out. Non-smoker, whisky (single malt) and beer (bitter) swilling caffiene addict.

Roleplaying notes: Speaks Queen's English with a slight southern (and, so he is told, refined) air, unless drunk when he slips into his native Estuary English. He is a cynical idealist capable of making immense jumps of deductive reasoning with little evidence to back him up, which makes him an obvious target for the Mi-Go and gets his research papers and grants rejected (despite the fact that all the leaps are subsequently proven). Constantly complaining about his boss/co-"workers"(as if they do a stroke!)/the MRC/the IRS/anyone else who is currently pissing him off. Has a notoriously short fuse and colourful vocabulary, which gets him into trouble from time to time. Has an oddly dark sense of humour, with a perverse cruel streak. Doesn't keep in touch with his friends as much as he should. Can't stand cats (due to his allergy) or rabbits, but likes ferrets.

He is occasionally found in bookstores, record shops, airports or delicatessans, but mostly in the lab. Gaming with him carries occupational hazard warnings, as odd things tend to happen (stigmata, superglue, real-life-nervous-breakdowns, broken kneecaps, caffeine poisoning, vomiting (through nose), dice throwing and cross dressing [it was another player going through an identity crisis, honest!] are just some of the strangeness which have occured actually during game sessions). Players are unlikely to encounter him unless he is actively sought for advice (he likes Laphroig, which is a pretty good bribe to make him speak) or are total oddballs, in which case they will gravitate to him by a process of osmosis.

John is a full time web programmer, trying to come to grips with the possibility that he's not in Kansas anymore. He is currently working on a very secret web based project involving fractals, complex subsidiary algorithms and resonance imaging. He hopes to use this technology to contact an extra dimensional entity to find out what really happened to Elvis, Belushi , Candy and Farley. He believes that cats are just waiting for the opportunity to revolt en masse, and that someone has already invented the water powered alternative to the internal combustion engine; but who was silenced forever by a consortium of the industrial elite and various quasi military religious groups. As his age progresses, his sanity declines but he feels great and believes everything is just peachy.

Axel lives with his family just outside Gothenburg on the swedish west coast, where he currently studies social science. At the moment he makes a decent living through various crap jobs like cleaning and low-profile work for different companies, as well as selling artwork now and then. Of course, he dreams of a lazy life where he can earn a living through what he likes doing best; using his imagination.

This boy has a typical naive youthful disrespect for pretty much everything, including claims of the supernatural. His vast interest in horror has nothing to do with the way he percieves reality, even though half-forgotten childhood experiences has made him jumpy and nervous when alone. Actually, deep inside he has some sort of perverted addiction to fear. Faced with Delta Green, he will be intrigued at first, turning to scared but resolute when things go FUBAR.

Axel has an array of oil-paintings, sculptures and drawings concerning the mythos. When very young, he encountered the Hastur Mythos through various obscure and seemingly unrelated works of fiction. Hauntingly, numbly beautiful dreams of Carcosa has appeared now and then ever since, and currently a blasphemous work hangs above his bed; a vision from the Lake of Hali, featuring the twisted Yellow Sign. Axel is slowly going insane without really knowing it, and risks bringing horrible woes upon the world through his obsession with the King in Yellow.

Axel can also be used as a link to the Cult of Transscendence. He has several relatives in Stockholm, some of which are involved with things better left unmentioned. When researching the Cult, the agents might come across Axel and use him to infiltrate and spy upon the Cult, provided they know they can trust him of course…

The area around Axel's home has many legends surrounding it; the endless, deep swedish woods are just outside his window, riddled with ancient mounds and horrible …um… elks? Anyway, some say things still go on beyond those lush hills, unnamable things done in forgotten clearings at misty summer nights…

I'm not very big, especially for a man: only five foot nine or ten. I'm very light: only 60 kg. I'm more or less handsome, when you don't take notice of a slight stoop and the fact I don't have a lot of muscle. I feel that my high school education was a bit below par, especially on the history side, but I do read a lot and I have almost graduated at university, so that justifies an EDU of 17 I think. You may notice that my POW and SAN don't correspond, this is due to the fact that my will-power is quite high: I do not give up easily, but I'm quite susceptible to impressions: hence the low SAN. No ghost stories about my childhood, sorry, but I have been afraid of aliens for most of my childhood. My 16 INT is mainly based on the fact that that gives me an idea roll of 80% which seems about right.

Weapons: none


General astronomy 30%, Theoretical (astro)physics 80%, Computer use 60%

I'm not a very good amateur astronomer, hence the low score there. My main strength lies with theoretical work. Mainly statistical physics, plasma physics and gasdynamics. Working with computers is also an important part of my ‘job’.

Explaining stuff 70%

I'm quite good at explaining things. This would probably be my only useful skill as an NPC: the players could come to me to get things like higher dimensions, relativity and quantum mechanics explained.

Thinking I would be good at playing RPGs 99%; actually being good at it ??%

I have never played a pnp RPG in my life. I bought the CoC 5.5 in the spring and now I'm still looking for people to play with. And I'm looking for the DG book. But that would probably work a lot better if I actually went to the shop one day.

Art - playing the guitar 6%

Art - taking photographs 50%

Art - drawing and painting (both on and off the computer) 20 %

Yes, I know that 5% is the base skill, but I actually did play guitar, long, long ago. People say I'm pretty good at photography (notice I didn't use the photography skill: I can't develop film myself yet) and I would like to be able to create the same pretty pictures through drawing and painting, but I'm just not really good at it. It's still a great way to pass the time, though.

Own language - Dutch 85%

Other language - English 60%

Other language - French 10%

Other language - German 35%

I'm not really that much of a language buff, but I like to think my English is pretty good, and it should be because it's quite important for being a (grad) student. My German is mainly passive (I can read German books), active should only take some practise. I have had classical Greek and Latin at highschool, but I daren't give an estimate of my skills nowadays.

Library use 50%

I have a small job on the side working in the faculty library and I also have to work with the library as a student of course, giving me some skill here.

Occult 20%

Well, I'm interested in it, and I like horror, so that should give me some points here. And I'm reading Frazer's Golden Bough, so there you go.

Role-playing notes:

You are always allowed to turn me in a professor :). I'm quite kind and social, although some people find me a bit presumptuous sometimes. I'm always willing to help people. I live together with my girlfriend, though, so players will have to get through her if they want to get to me. I always try to be brave and confident, but my appearance isn't very awe inspiring, and my voice isn't very strong. My main asset is probably that I'm so helpful.

Phobias: none, really, but I can be afraid of the dark, heights and insects, but I can conquer those fears.

Personality: Sarcastic. Some people might be put off by this, but if you have a thick skin, you'd find him very amusing. Once describied as, "Really nice until he stabs you."

He's also widely read, knowing more than a little about a wide variety of topics. He has also traveled some in Central and South America and Asia. He can weave these bits into lectures of moderate insight and interest that go on for tens of minutes. He tries to be sensitive to boring his audience, but it's not all that easy to tell, sometimes.

He played in a band when he was younger, but has Put That Behind Him. He also seems to be the main writer for the DGWiki, and is starting to translate material for the French CoC website TOC. Is uncertain if this is a cause or an effect of not having a stable girlfriend.
