Scenarios

Several scenarios have been written specifically with Delta Green in mind. Due to DG's respect for Lovecraft and other Mythos originals, it is usually easy to adapt non-DG modern Mythos materials for use with DG agents, especially since the history of DG stretches back to Innsmouth.

  • Future/Perfect (2016): A four-part campaign by Dennis Detwiller. The Permian returns to bite the present.

A detective discovered a hidden lab, outfitted with bio-hazard scrubbers. A CDC specialist found unidentifiable samples—samples that indicated that ''something'' had gotten loose.

    • Blacksat: A simple satellite repair leads them to truths of mathematics and physics beyond all human wonder and fear.

    • Wormwood Arena: The Agents must investigate the cult, perhaps even infiltrate it, and stop a catastrophic incursion before it begins.
  • A Victim of the Art (2019): A serial killer is at work in quiet Glenridge, Long Island. Bizarre mutilations mark the victims of the “Glenridge Chiropractor,” as national news and the conspiracy theorists at ''Phenomen-X'' call the killer.

    • Ex Oblivione (2019): Vicious murders stain the Arizona desert. Crazed words scrawled at a crime scene hint at Y’ha-nthlei and the sea. A handful of Agents have a chance to claim vengeance for ancient wrongs—or suffer it.
    • The Child (2020): A traumatized child looks to the Agents for protection from voices that never cease.
  • Impossible Landscapes (2021): A mind-breaking, multi-decade, four-part campaign centered around the King in Yellow. It also contains the most recent version of Night Floors.
  • Jack Frost (2021): A rural Alabama valley has always been prone to severe cold snaps. On 22 DEC 1998, the worst “Jack Frost” storm in history hit the farming town of Willis. A lingering, otherworldy freeze and sudden flood killed dozens. The players, Agents of MAJESTIC, are tasked with dealing with it.
  • Iconoclasts (2022): A team of Agents is brought to a scene of horrors all too real: Mosul in 2016, held by the self-styled Islamic State in a reign of depraved brutality.

A night of death leaves them scarred forever. But even as one terror fades, another awakens. A decades-spanning campaign based on Caleb's Stokes influential series for RPPR.
  • Puppet Shows and Shadow Plays (2023): A remaster of the original scenario from the original 1997 Delta Green sourcebook for the Delta Green: The Conspiracy Kickstarter. Will be printed as part of the Incursions book for the same Kickstarter.

Fan-made for Delta Green

There are a lot of false starts on the Internet, but the following fan-made scenarios are complete:

Incomplete

Many other campaigns have been suggested on the mailing list over the years, though the material on them is not yet collected in this wiki:

  • New Cult of Cthulhu. The ancient cult reforms as an elite dedicated to sociopathic materialism. This idea prefigures the Cult of Transcendence, and late-2000s financial crisis. Message 18319.
  • Black Brotherhood. The Iraq War was a smash and grab on Irem between rival Mythos cults. Message 18496.
  • The Shan cross the Atlantic and infiltrate MJ-12 (and Delta Green) after the Accord breaks down. Message 18297 (copied into Delta Green after 9/11).
  • War on Dregs. Delta Green attempts to ignite conflict between the Fate and other Mythos/crime groups, in particular the Disciples of the Worm. As things heat up, DG begins to use ghouls as infiltrators. Message 26272 and thread.
  • Office #44 takes the role of the Karotechia and is wiped out by a DG operation in North Korea. Message 32308.
  • Crossover with the X-COM computer game franchise, particularly UFO: Enemy Unknown (1994). The suggested backbone was an attempt at subjugation and religious conversion of the Earth by vengeful insects from Shaggai and their light-tolerant slave races, opposed by PCs as BLUE FLY soldiers in an uneasy alliance of some of the canonical organizations. Message 32362.
