Oh. My. God. Japanese samurai protecting silver shipments in 17th century Mexico were a Thing!

Why hasn't this been turned into an anime series yet?

(From the book 1493 by Charles Mann. Which you should get and read right now if you haven't read it already.)

Not a creature on Pluto, just an iceberg. #DeltaGreen has dealt with the more detailed pics.
NASA revealed new high-resolution images of Pluto, including a visual of the dwarf planet's Sputnik Planum region. Look closely and you will see a snail-like object that seems to be trekking on the icy region's surface.

Thousands of archaeological artifacts — and maps detailing where more can be found — are kept inside the national wildlife refuge buildings currently being held by an armed group of protestors angry over federal land policy.

When bats flock in the smoky shape of a Yellow or Elder Sign, #DeltaGreen agents get nervous.
Bats are fascinating creatures—both from the point of scientific research and their place in the canon of the horror genre as spooky creatures of the night. So whether you’re a science person or a horror person, this shot of millions of bats streaming into the sky is either great, or great and fearsome.

What's in the massive canyon beneath Antarctica? If #DeltaGreen does its job, you'll never have to know.
Every week, we’re bombarded with images of dazzling terrains on Mars and Pluto, but there are still geologic wonders to be discovered right here on Earth. Case in point: a new study suggests there could be a canyon system more than twice as long as the Grand Canyon buried beneath an ice sheet in Antarctica. If confirmed, the frozen chasm would be the world’s longest by a wide margin.

In Episode#2, Game School talks with Shane Ivy and Allen Goodall about the game Godlike. Godlike is a street level superhero game set during WWII. Chad Parish runs this episode solo playing the super soldier Plaster as he runs up against a band of Nazis.

Agents, it's that time of year again--for the annual Delta Green Shotgun Scenario Contest!

As usual, the aim of this year's contest is to write short scenarios. In keeping with the Man in Black's original definition, mere scenario seeds are perfectly welcome, including evocative artifacts, species, themes and cults. Everyone is invited to participate and advertise.

RULES:

1. Entries must be set in the Delta Green-verse.

2. Entries can be of any length. However, any entry longer than 1500 words* will be at a disadvantage in the voting. Specifically, every vote for long entries will be counted as 0.5 votes for purposes of determining victory.

3. Scenario titles and stats blocks do not count toward the word limit. Narrative NPC descriptions do count.

4. You may submit as many Shotgun Scenarios as you wish.

5. Submissions are anonymous until the contest has ended, except to the contest administrator.

6. To submit an entry, email it to the contest administrator, epossing AT yahoo DOT com. The administrator will post each text with its word count to the DGML as soon as possible, and archive it on the Delta Green wiki (<http://fairfieldproject.wikidot.com/shotgun-scenarios>) with appropriate formatting.

7. Submissions may be sent in the body of the email or as text attachment (doc, rtf, etc). No PDFs please.

8. The last day for submissions is Thursday, December 31, 2015.

9. The authors of the top three scenarios by anonymous vote are the winners. This will be decided through a list member poll on the DGML Yahoo! Groups page, ending at midnight on Sunday, January 23, 2016.

10. Authors are free to vote for their own submission.

11. The contest administrator may submit but does not vote.

*Note: Word count is as determined by the GNU wc utility. The rule of halving the effective vote count for long entries comes from the 2006 edition of this annual contest.

PRIZES:

First place prize is a $20 gift certificate to Drivethrurpg/RPGNow.
Second place prize is a $10 gift certificate to Drivethrurpg/RPGNow.
Third place prize is a $5 gift certificate to Drivethrurpg/RPGNow.

Good luck everyone!

The chilling cosmic terror of the Cthulhu Mythos meets covert action and modern conspiracy. DELTA GREEN brings down the thunder at Kickstarter, with the core game long since unlocked and new resources and scenarios being unlocked almost every day.

Massive new sourcebooks are coming:

IMPOSSIBLE LANDSCAPES, a campaign against the King in Yellow.

CONTROL GROUP, a campaign of introductory scenarios.

DEEP STATE, a look at the secret organizations and companies that surround modern-day Delta Green.

And much more when we unlock those.

Back DELTA GREEN at Kickstarter. Get the Agent's Handbook, or the expanded Case Officer's Handbook if you plan to run a campaign yourself. Get THE FALL OF DELTA GREEN, a Gumshoe game by Kenneth Hite and Pelgrane Press. Get OPERATIONAL HISTORY and the HANDLER'S SCREEN. Collect all the adventures and other bonuses that backers have unlocked.

Download the quickstart kit -- rules, scenario, playable characters -- and start playing today.

The apocalypse is here. Let's face it together.
Lovecraftian cosmic terror meets the War on Terror. The award-winning RPG setting comes thundering back in a new Cthulhu Mythos game.
