The Fall of Delta Green LIVE!
GM Ariel Celeste has some death to mete out to our intrepid players, Adam Scott Glancy, Andrew Migliore, Ken Hite, Andrew Leman, and Sean Branney! Will any of them survive? It will be up to YOU to decide!
The Scenario: After a young man with superhuman strength goes on a multi-state crime spree, DG agents are sent to his small hometown to investigate. There they find strange lights in the sky, oddly behaving townsfolk, and unexplained disappearances. Just another Night at the Opera in this classic Delta Green scenario.
Ariel has played games her entire life, and is experienced across the range of mediums in which they are found. An only child, her adventures with imaginary friends set the stage for the acting she would do through college and the roleplaying games she would find later in life. A long time Scrabble enthusiast and one-time competitive Unreal Tournament savage, she is drawn to the math of Caverna and is ever ready to bring her best Nero Wolfe impression to the suicidal madness of Delta Green. You can find her on Twitter @ArielContessa and occasionally on FB https://www.facebook.com/ariel.celeste.9047 or at cons running games for ConTessa.
ConTessa is a gaming organization dedicated to making tabletop gaming spaces more diverse by bringing marginalized-led events to conventions all around the United States. We run innovative and unique tracks featuring games, panels, workshops, and seminars led entirely by historically marginalized people, yet open to attendance by anyone. Our event runners are volunteers who pick their own games and content, making every ConTessa event as unique as the ConTessans who run them.
In 1998 Scott Glancy left a perfectly functional career as an attorney to join up with the role-playing game publisher Pagan Publishing, the nerd equivalent of running away to join the Foreign Legion. Today Scott is the man in charge of Pagan Publishing (much in the same sense that the last surviving legionnaire can be said to be in command of Fort Zinderhoff). Pagan’s most recent project is “Horrors of War,” an anthology of scenarios set during the Great War for the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game. Scott is a contributing author on the award-winning Delta Green series of Call of Cthulhu rpg supplements and has had Lovecraftian fiction published in several short story collections including the recent "Book of Cthulhu II," "Shotguns v. Cthulhu," and the upcoming “Swords v. Cthulhu.” You can hear his recorded games sessions on Role-Playing Public Radio, and listen to him bloviate on the Unspeakable Podcast and Podcast at Ground Zero.
