Delta Green Agent's Handbook
« on: September 28, 2016, 01:26:13 AM »
I've been listening to, and very much enjoying, the "God's Teeth" Delta Green campaign. So much so that while I was haunting my Friendly Neighborhood Game Store this evening, I picked up a copy of DG:AH and leafed through it. It looks interesting, and I'm tempted to buy it.

Except...there's not a word about Mythos Things Man Was Not Meant To Know (tm) in it. No real adventure design or Gming advice.

I was under the impression (enhanced by the book itself, which bears the legend A Role-Playing Game of Lovecraftian Horror and Conspiracy) that this was a complete game. Apparently, I was mistaken, and it's only a sourcebook. Which is a little disappointing. It means I have to buy TWO Delta Green books. Curse you, Arc Dreams! <shakes fist futilely at the heavens>

Agent's Handbook has all the rules you need to play the game. It does not have any of the setting info, which is the upcoming Delta Green: The Role Playing Game book. The PDF for that is out in December I think.

HOWEVER, you can run DG with just the Agent handbook. This has a scenario and pregens and is free: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/175760/Delta-Green-Need-to-Know

There are several other published new DG scenarios in PDF form: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/521/Arc-Dream-Publishing/subcategory/1459_8165/Delta-Green?test_epoch=0&page=1&sort=4a

Well, I ordered the Agent's Handbook and Need to Know from Amazon last night. I should get them tomorrow. Good to know that the full RPG will be out in December.

Yeah, I felt pretty sad when I realized that by upgrading from Agent's Handbook to full RPG book I'd delayed my physical copy by a long time. I have Need to Know though, and it's great.
