While excavating land around Catholic church near Norfolk, Virginia as part of a larger renovation, local construction workers have unearthed a strange burial site. Inside a hillside crypt nearly 200 yards from the church, workers found nearly 30 skeletal remains arranged in a circle along the walls of the crypt. Each skeleton was found to have had it's skull removed and placed in front of a central skeleton holding a long blade with spiral etching. Initial observations from friendlies on the site have determined that the blade may be a point of concern. Delta Green activates a cell to investigate the site and identify any potential vectors.

Podcast cover

Since time immemorial you and your people have toiled in the shadow of the cyclopean ruins. Of mysterious origins and the source of many a superstition, they have always been considered a secret best left unknown by the folk of your hamlet.

The landscape was full of machines and scrap metal connected to the facility in one way or another. Always present on the horizon were the colossal cooling towers, with their green obstruction lights. If you put your ear to the ground, you could hear the heartbeat of the Loop – the purring of the Gravitron, the central piece of engineering magic that was the focus of the Loop’s experiments. The facility was the largest of its kind in the world, and it was said that its forces could bend space-time itself. In the town near the Loop, a group of kids find themselves embroiled in a mystery about a product launch of a new line of action toys.It seems the weirdness from the Loop is leaking out!

Rank #8: Red Markets Beta: The Brutalists episode 1

Podcast cover
Read more
The Red Markets beta campaign has begun! This session covers enclave generation and the first job. In case you weren't aware, Red Markets is a work-in-progress RPG created by Caleb. We discuss its creation in detail on the Game Designer Workshop series on RPPR. Set in the near future after a massive zombie infection has wiped out millions, the USA is divided into two regions: The Recession (mostly east of the Mississippi) and the Loss (the rest of the country). The undead have been cleared in the Recession, so the grueling work of rebuilding civilization has begun there. The Loss is still overrun with 'casualties', the new term for zombie. Still, communities of refugees band together in settlements called enclaves. Life in the enclaves depends on groups of desperate but armed survivors called Takers who risk life and limb to perform dangerous freelance jobs for pay. If you need something done in the Loss and you have the money, you hire a group of Takers to do it.

This campaign concerns a group of Takers called the Brutalists in the ruins of Chicago. In their first job, they must travel to a small dam far from the safety of their enclave. What secrets are hidden within the structure? Eager for work, the Takers agree to the job and head out, uncertain of what they will find...

A call in the dead of night to go to an office park a two-hour drive away. It is an emergency. When the team assembles, a woman who smells of smoke and death, hastily tells them the job.

“We need you to pose as the new management team of the local office of McPherson Logistics Solutions, which as far as anyone knows, is an international shipping company. They were led by a group of hostiles. They’re gone now, thanks to us...There’s a basement. It is dangerous. It must be secured. We have a keycard that works for the front door. That’s all we can offer.”

A group of Royal Italian Army soldiers has been ordered to check up on an observation post high up in the Dolomite Mountains. The Austrian army is the least of their concerns.

If we look too deeply into the roiling chaos of reality, chaos may look back. The Olympian Holobeam Array, funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy, was built to delve into a fringe theory of physics. A few hours ago, the Holobeam Array went online. A few minutes ago, it went offline in a catastrophic power surge. Its engineers soon restored power and communications. Its lead researcher said everything was fine. Working Group Icarus is sent in, under cover of a Department of Energy safety inspection. The Agents have no idea what they’ll find when they reach the Array.

Rank #14: Delta Green: Future Perfect

Podcast cover

Sponsor: If you enjoyed this AP, you can buy the scenario it's based on! Please support Arc Dream by throwing them a few bucks for their work on Delta Green.

Synopsis: Decades ago, an explosion leveled the Hunt Electrodynamics Plant and put most of Hellbend, California, out of work. Now the town is nearly dead. Only eighty-two people call the crumbling remains of Hellbend home, and those few don’t look to the future. They get by on what they can, selling gas and goods to tourists on the way to the Death Valley National Park and biding their time. In another few years, Hellbend will die a natural death, shriveling up in the 110-degree summer heat, leaving behind a skeleton of ruined buildings as a monument to a better time.

But in the last month, something else has worn away at the town, something decidedly unnatural. If the murder rate in Hellbend continues, it’ll die a lot faster than a few years, and a lot more violently than just another victim of some dead industry.

Someone or something is killing the residents of Hellbend, California. No one knows who or what it is. Working Group Icarus has been tasked to find the killer and stop them.

Rank #17: Delta Green: Dream-Away Camp

Podcast cover

Grace & Glory Camp for Wayward Youth: Train Up Your Child has been operating in the North Idaho wilderness for almost twenty years. Promising to shape troubled teens into productive members of society, Grace & Glory has enjoyed scenic vistas, an abundance of fresh air, and very generous zoning regulations from the local township. However a particularly violent incident at the Old Quarry involving the camp's troubled teens and a camp counselor threatens to upset the natural balance.

Local law enforcement is called in to investigate, but the unnatural nature of the crime and reported Occult symbolism of Grace & Glory sees Delta Green staffing the investigative team with friendlies and a handler. What horrible secrets will they uncover? OPERATION: SHADOWS REST is a time-sensitive probe that may warrant the use of extreme and overwhelming force in the face of a deadly memetic hazard. Who, or what, is “Our King” mentioned in the yellow camp bibles?

Content warning: Dream-Away Camp contains explicit or implied scenes of violence that listeners may find disturbing.

It’s been a long day’s travel, and the sun is just beginning to go down as you see an inn in the distance. As you draw closer, you see the sign of three feathers hanging outside, and notice that the place is unusually busy.

Inside, the inn is bustling. servants are hurrying to and fro, and the innkeeper is engrossed in conversation with a scribe who carries a visibly bulging purse. “Welcome,” he says at last, “I’m sorry to have kept you waiting for so long, but as you can see, we have a distinguished guest tonight—the Gravin Maria-Ulrike von Liebewitz of Ambosstein, no less...I hardly know whether I’m coming or going with it all. Now, then—you want a room? What am I saying, of course you do. Ah, excuse me again, I’ll only be a moment.” You wait for another few minutes as he directs a train of servants to the Gravin’s rooms. “So sorry,” he says as he returns to you, “It really is mad this evening.”

This scenario was run by Noah of the Maple Syrup, Blood Money podcast.
