Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game

Created by Arc Dream Publishing

Lovecraftian cosmic terror meets the War on Terror. The award-winning RPG setting comes thundering back in a new Cthulhu Mythos game.

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Sweetness, Landscapes, Opera, and Elder Dice
about 3 years ago – Tue, Mar 27, 2018 at 10:49:15 PM

The Handler's Guide and the slipcase set of Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game are still on track for delivery in late May. The latest round of proofs are coming in this week before they commence the full print run. If your rewards in BackerKit include "The Case Officer's Handbook" in hardback, you will get the slipcase set with both the Agent's Handbook and the Handler's Guide.

Inside Impossible Landscapes

On Patreon and Drip, Dennis Detwiller recently posted designer's notes and an extensive preview of Delta Green: Impossible Landscapes. Sign up at Patreon or Drip to see. Pre-order Impossible Landscapes in hardback or pdf at BackerKit.

Now Available: Sweetness

The newest Delta Green scenario is Sweetness, written and illustrated by Dennis Detwiller.

The Bernier family of Tampa, Florida, has been terrorized by a fire and weird graffiti. Police suspect a hate crime. The mark on the door, carved with a horn or a claw and smeared with blood and effluvia, makes Delta Green think otherwise. One of their experts says it’s the symbol of Kore, queen of the underworld, goddess of an ancient mystery cult. The sign has been seen in old tomes that had deadly hypergeometrical effects. It may be a far deeper threat than anyone suspects. Delta Green’s agents must discover the connection between a loving family and an unnatural force that might claim them all.

41 and a Wake-Up

The pre-order program for Delta Green: A Night at the Opera needs only 41 more orders. When it hits the goal, it gets a beautiful hardback printing. 

Maybe that Elder Sign will help.

Elder Dice Return

Our friends at Elder Dice are back with new sets of gorgeous, creepy dice for your game table. Check them out on Kickstarter now.

A look at the slipcase
about 3 years ago – Wed, Mar 14, 2018 at 10:04:07 PM

We have received a mock-up of the slipcase from the printer, and we are very excited. It features the name of the game on the spine, a green delta on the front, and a familiar pattern embossed into the surface.

With the books, it weighs about 7 lbs, so I expect it to count as Armor 5 in a pinch.

A New Link

Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game is now available on DriveThruRPG as a single download containing both volumes, the Agent's Handbook and the Handler's Guide. We have updated your BackerKit digital downloads accordingly. If your rewards include the "Case Officer's Handbook," which is now the slipcase set, that download link is for the two-volume set. We encourage you to redeem that link to add it to your DriveThruRPG library. And then please add a quick rating to tell others what you think of it.

International Options for A Night at the Opera

When we launched Delta Green: A Night at the Opera as a pre-order on the main Arc Dream web store, its international shipping rates were prohibitively high. That's because that web store is hooked into our main warehouse in the U.S., which delivers international orders via the U.S. Postal Service and charges USPS rates. 

We have implemented an alternative that may be better for those of you outside the U.S. You can now pre-order A Night at the Opera at BackerKit. We have set its non-U.S. shipping rates based on those of the U.K. warehouse which fulfills our international Kickstarter deliveries. That means the shipping rates are more reasonable for most customers outside the U.S.

 

If you already placed an order at the Arc Dream web store with its higher shipping rates, you can cancel that order and place a new one at BackerKit.

Rewards Status Summary

This Kickstarter project funded so many works that it's easy to lose track of them all. We have launched a new Kickstarter Rewards Report post at Delta-Green.com to show which rewards have already been delivered and which ones are still in progress. We will update the page from time to time, so check back whenever you get curious about what's still to come. 

Delta Green in Stores

We have a long line of Delta Green products in retail distribution and many more to come. See the March catalog at arcdream.com. Tell your friendly local game store to order from their favorite distributor. If the distributor does have it, the store can order straight from our sales agents at Studio 2 Publishing. 

Golden Geeks Reminder

We are up for Golden Geek awards! Voting is restricted to active BoardGameGeek users. If that's you, please vote!

Coming Soon

We and our friends have a lot of new work coming out. Some of it has been in development for a long, long time.

  • The Unspeakable Oath 25 is now in layout. After such a long hiatus, it returns with a deluxe, full-color issue—and a new Patreon program to produce more Cthulhu Mythos RPG materials of the same high quality.
  • This summer, watch for Elder Things, a compilation of Unspeakable Oath issues 22, 23, and 24, with all scenarios and mosters updated to Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition or Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game. 
  • Wrestlenomicon's playtest will wrap up this week and will go to its own Kickstarter project soon. We are editing the videos now.
  • An annotated, deluxe edition of Robert Chambers' The King in Yellow will be available as a pre-order soon. Samuel Araya's spectacularly creepy paintings are all finished, we have preliminary layout treatments, and Kenneth Hite is on hand to write the annotations after his current work on the new edition of Vampire: The Masquerade. This will be a beautiful book.
  • Look for a King in Yellow tarot deck on Kickstarter later this year. Kurt Komoda already finished a full run of card designs in rough black and white, based on the deck imagined by John Tynes and Dan Harms in Delta Green: Countdown. 

Thank you again for backing Delta Green!

And the Darkness Spoke

Dennis Detwiller’s Delta Green campaign of horrors in 1986 New York returns to Twitch tonight. We’ll start at about 6:15 pm Central time. Log in to twitch.tv/arc_dream to watch.

This will be Episode 3. You can watch Episode 1 on Twitch or YouTube, and you can read a detailed recap of Episode 2 on Delta-Green.com. We’re still learning how to produce decent video and audio, so we beg your patience. Episode 1 has some distortions and Episode 2 did not record properly. They say practice makes perfect. We hope you enjoy what's to become of our agents in Episode 3.

The latest round of playtesting for Wrestlenomicon is happening RIGHT NOW. Wrestlenomicon is a head-to-head card came of Great Old Ones wrestling, summoning, devouring, and squicking for domination of our puny world.
