Delta Green RPG (June 2018) & Operations (new)

Tuesday 8 October 2019
In October 2019 we launched our annual “October Horrors” sequence with two offers featuring Delta Green, the standalone RPG from Arc Dream Publishing about covert agents fighting the mind-rending perils of the Cthulhu Mythos. We revived and renamed the Delta Green RPG Bundle (originally presented in June 2018 as “Delta Green +2”) with the core rulebooks and early supplements, and this brave (if high-strung) offer got an all-new companion, Delta Green Operations, with recent supplements and scenarios.

Humanity’s fate was sealed aeons ago. The stars align, and alien entities seek to reclaim what once was theirs. But behind the scenes, some among us are fighting back. Born of the U.S. government’s 1928 raid on the degenerate coastal town of Innsmouth, Massachusetts, the covert agency known as Delta Green opposes the forces of darkness with honor but without glory. Unlike the antiquarian researchers in many traditional Mythos games, agents of this conspiracy confront mind-shattering weirdness with modern technology as well as ancient spells. Perpetually at risk of both insanity and treason, DG operatives face not only hostile aliens, but subversive elements within their own ranks. They fight to save humanity from unnatural horrors — often at a shattering personal cost.

DG‘s compelling mix of conspiracies, UFOs, intelligence tactics, and Lovecraftian terror has brought it unsurpassed praise. In the comprehensive RPG. net Game Index of 20,000 roleplaying games, the original Pagan Publishing Delta Green (a supplement for Call of Cthulhu) ranks #2 — and #1 is the DG supplement Countdown. We presented the Pagan DG supplements in our March 2014 Delta Green Pagan Bundle. In 2016 the co-creators revamped the setting as a standalone RPG from Arc Dream Publishing, funded in a smash September 2015 Kickstarter campaign. We presented the new line in June 2018; at that time we called it “Delta Green +2” to distinguish it from the 2014 Pagan offer.

[from June 2018]

This revived and renamed Delta Green RPG Bundle had the Delta Green Agent’s Handbook and Handler’s Guide core rulebooks plus many operations (scenarios) and fiction. There were three titles in this revived offer’s Agent Collection (retail value $40), including the Delta Green Agent’s Handbook player rulebook (plus the Briefing Documents, the Need to Know quickstart rules, and other play aids) and two Delta Green fiction collections: Tales from Failed Anatomies by DG co-creator Dennis Detwiller (funded partly through his Patreon campaign) and the anthology Extraordinary Renditions, with stories by Kenneth Hite, Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan, all the original DG creators, and many more.

Those who paid more than this offer’s threshold (average) price also got this revival’s entire Handler Collection with four more titles worth an additional $65, including the DG Handler’s Guide rulebook and Handler’s Screen reference charts, the six-scenario collection A Night at the Opera, and the ready-to-play scenario Kali Ghati.


This all-new companion offer added recent supplements and scenarios, including the major releases Control Group and The Complex. There were ten titles in this offer’s Starter Collection (retail value $40), including three tense DG operations (The Last Equation, Lover in the Ice, and Sweetness); the Agent Dossiers with dozens of pregenerated player characters; three full-color issues of the superb Cthulhu Mythos gaming magazine The Unspeakable Oath (Oath #23, issue #24, and issue #25); and three fine examples of Delta Green fiction and drama: Down in the Delta, The Way It Went Down, and a two-scene play by DG co-creator John Scott Tynes, In the Court of the Yellow King.

This offer’s Bonus Collection added eight more titles worth an additional $61, including the new scenario collection Control Group; the newly published The Complex, a rundown of agencies and entities that employ DG operatives; the full-length operations Future/Perfect Part 1 and Part 2 and A Victim of the Art; and The Unspeakable Oath issue #25. And the two final installments in Dennis Detwiller’s full-scale Delta Green campaign, Future/Perfect Part 3 and Part 4, debuted in this offer.

Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to these two Delta Green offers’ designated charity, Human Rights Watch.
