Delta Green: Puppet Shows & Shadow Plays

Selected Option:


Thirteen people have vanished along Highway 70 in the Arizona desert. That stretch of road—the press already calls it the “Devil’s Highway”—runs through the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation. Tribal police and state investigators are at a loss. Now the FBI steps in. It sends your agents. They may find a trail of terror that leads far from Arizona and a deeper evil than they can hope to overcome.

Set in the late 1990s, “Puppet Shows and Shadow Plays” is an introductory scenario for Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game. It accompanies the Nineties sourcebook Delta Green: The Conspiracy. The players’ Agents can be members of the Delta Green conspiracy or newcomers who have no idea what to expect. The Devil’s Highway may drive survivors to a grim initiation. Once they see the unnatural threats that Delta Green confronts, can they ever turn away?

I'm currently reading it. Exciting material so far. Noticed a minor error on page 5, paragraph 1, line 5. The word "officer" is repeated twice in a sentence.

I’m always curious about the runtime on these. Like, if I devote 5+ hours to a session with 3-4 players, could it be done and not feel rushed?

I have the original version of this scenario. I assume the newer version had been updated to use the latest rules but has there been any other changes or additions? The original was already a great scenario so I’m a likely buyer!

I also have the original. There have been a couple of minor changes, more than anything in Convergence or A Victim of the Art that brought those up to the new rules. None of the changes radically alter the scenario but without getting into spoilers, one is nice and allows you to tie it in to a longer campaign. Overall, I think they make it worth picking up.

I will definitely pick it up when it is available on roll20. Looking forward to it.

IIRC, the only substantial change was revising/expanding the nature of the Coyote.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
