Delta Green Role Playing Game

Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game is a tabletop role-playing game of conspiracy, suspense, and Lovecraftian terror. Players’ characters are agents of Delta Green: federal agents and special forces operators; academics who’ve seen too much and physicians who study the aftermath of horror; scientists and other specialists; and sometimes just bystanders who get caught up in events beyond anyone’s control.  Delta Green is a top-secret program that uses the cover of the War on Terror to investigate, confront, and cover up incursions of unnatural, otherworldly forces. Its exact structure and resources are known to very few. Its agents and their activities are kept secret even from each other. Their first priority is to quarantine unnatural horrors, because the unnatural is real and it kills.

Delta Green was directly inspired by the horror fiction of H.P. Lovecraft and other Cthulhu Mythos authors. Just as Lovecraft’s stories were about the intersection of cosmic terror and cutting-edge technology in the 1920s and 1930s, Delta Green is about that intersection today.  In every game of Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game, agents investigate horrifying events, seek ways to thwart them, and try to save anyone else from being exposed. They face lethal threats and awful discoveries. To keep a low profile, they rarely have the resources they want. They often must make terrible choices for the greater good, as best they can perceive it. The longer an agent is active, the greater the toll those stresses take on the agent’s health, sanity, career, and family.

Delta Green’s creators Dennis Detwiller, Adam Scott Glancy, and John Scott Tynes began working with longtime colleagues Shane Ivey (The Unspeakable Oath, Wild Talents) and Greg Stolze (Unknown Armies, Godlike) on the core rules of Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game in 2011.  They’ve spent the last few years developing Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game, iteration after ruthless iteration. Whole chapters and approaches to the rules have come and gone. Extensive playtesting helped them hone it to deliver game-play that’s fast, suspenseful, thrilling, and chilling.

Sophia And Her Ghost Friend

James Woodward and Gentry Smith, creators of the musical children’s book “When Rebecca Woogie Came to Town,” need your help for their jazzy new adventure: “Sophia and Her Ghost Friend!”   A story of adventure, monsters, and jazz music, “Sophia and Her Ghost Friend” is a rhyming, musical children’s picture book, complete in 1300 words. When young Sophia ventures into the spooky woods outside her village, she makes new friends and discovers music that brings monsters and townspeople dancing together. “Sophia and Her Ghost Friend” will inspire children to play a musical instrument and encourage dedication, practicing, hard work and friendship. Building enthusiasm for young musicians and young readers, the story will feature an interactive soundtrack designed to expand children’s music through various styles.

Their last musical book, “When Rebecca Woogie Came to Town,” saw tremendous success when it reached over 100,000 children across the United States in schools, libraries, and concert halls; received a 2010 Independent Publishers Book Award for Children’s Interactive Book; and was performed in live concerts with the Classics Philharmonic, Georgia Symphony, and Etowah Youth Orchestra. Now they are looking to do it again with an all new story and an all new interactive musical soundtrack, and you can help them bring it to life!

Your donations will make this new adventure possible and will fund top quality musicians & recording, provide top quality art & printing, and will contribute towards creating digital versions of the book, a musical concert work, and an entertaining and educational elementary school level program that will be performed across the nation for schools, libraries, and children’s groups.
