This Is the Apocalypse. 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. Delta Green agents fight to save humanity from unnatural horrors—often at a shattering personal cost. In DELTA GREEN: THE ROLE-PLAYING GAME, the players are those agents. They fight to keep terrors from beyond space and time from infecting the world and claiming human lives and sanity. The Handler is the game moderator who creates and interprets their world, presents the mysteries that they investigate, and describes the awful aftermath of their sacrifices. This two-volume set includes both full-color, hardback rulebooks for DELTA GREEN: the AGENT’S HANDBOOK and the HANDLER’S GUIDE.
The Ennie Award-winning AGENT'S HANDBOOK is a players-only core rulebook of DELTA GREEN: THE ROLE-PLAYING GAME. It includes: Rules for creating agents, with dozens of professions from throughout the U.S. government and the civilian world. Rules for tense, fluid investigations; players who use their agents' skills in clever ways have the best chance to succeed—and survive. Nerve-wracking rules for combat, where random disasters can undo the most careful planning and the human psyche is as vulnerable as the body. Mind-melting Sanity rules, which see agents gradually and inevitably deteriorate from too much exposure to trauma—and sometimes snap in an instant from overwhelming terror. Rules for “home” scenes where players can see what their agents are fighting for Intuitive rules for equipment and assets, which let you determine on the fly whether something is available without having to plan it out ahead of time. Dossiers of the federal agencies most likely to be featured in Delta Green games, focusing on the details players want to know when they play their agents. Terrifying full-color illustrations by co-author Dennis Detwiller.
