One half adventure and one-half weird gazetteer, this module is jam packed with faceless ooze priests and bubbling gelatinous horrors. Carnivorous sentient fungi grown to monstrous size in massive corpse gardens no human eye has ever seen. Eldritch stone plinths jutting from impossible depths and mold-eating albino prophets. Ossuaries turned oracles and scabrous undead things scrambling around in the dark. Psychedelic mists hanging over ooze farms and ancient things sleeping deep within flooded causeways.

  • PRODUCT TYPE: module
  • RETAIL PRICE: $9.99
  • DESCRIPTION: Terror lurks within the gloomy woodlands surrounding a sleepy English Village. For two to six players and can be played in one or two sessions. Set in the modern-day, in a quiet valley somewhere in the north of England, this adventure concerns the demise of an age-old tradition in the quaint village of Muscoby—and the consequences of forgetting the Old Ways.

46 static protocol.JPG

STATIC Protocol by Arc Dream Publishing
  • SYSTEM: Delta Green RPG
  • PRODUCT TYPE: module supplement
  • RETAIL PRICE: $19.99
  • DESCRIPTION: Enhances Impossible Landscapes, a campaign adventure series, by collecting even deeper research from its sprawling timeline. Agents can piece together these fragments as they pursue secrets they may regret about the King in Yellow. It first touched the stage in the dying light of the 19th century and has arisen again and again to bring to human souls the bitter satisfaction of despair. Delta Green, a conspiracy dedicated to stopping unnatural terrors, enacted the STATIC Protocol as a ruthless response to the threat of The King in Yellow. Gathered together are secrets of otherworldly power. Of murder and memory that lengthen like the shadows cast by sinking suns. Of an invitation to a masquerade that never ends and is the end of all things. Of the bitter truths of Carcosa, The King in Yellow, and the Yellow Sign.
46 sigil & shadow.JPG

Sigil & Shadow by Osprey Publishing
  • SYSTEM: d00Lite system
  • PRODUCT TYPE: digest sized hardcover rulebook
  • RETAIL PRICE: $35
  • DESCRIPTION: Set in a mirror of the modern world, this game of urban fantasy and occult horror sees PCs take on the roles of illuminated heroes and shadowed monsters to face the rising tide of supernatural forces. Ancient nightmares lurk behind the closed doors of board rooms, entities from beyond time prowl the city streets, forgotten rituals are reborn as viral memes. Focuses squarely on the story rather than the mechanics - who the characters are and what they do, not how they do it. Easy to adopt to any mythos, campaigns can be built around a wide range of plots, with PCs taking the role of anything from paranormal investigators and monster hunters to members of occult cabals or secret societies.
46 cocaine & alligators.JPG

Cocaine & Alligators by Exalted Funeral
  • SYSTEM: Troika! Numinous Edition
  • PRODUCT TYPE: softcover supplement
  • RETAIL PRICE: $15
  • DESCRIPTION: 36 Backgrounds, a short adventure, and a bunch of wild stuff based on actual Florida Man headlines and the author's experience living in Florida. This may be the greatest supplement for RPGs ever produced. Maybe. At the very least you can bring this to your next game and ask your GM if you can use one of the backgrounds as inspiration. If your GM asks why, just say that every game needs Cocaine & Alligators.

Just as a general heads up for people: The Delta Green single adventures, like the one above, seem to get collected into compilation hardcovers once 4-6 get published. So, if you're interested in more than one, it kinda makes more sense to wait for a nice big hardback book (plus it's cheaper than buying them all separately).
FWIW, this publication is not a single adventure. It's more of a Handler's kit of information for the expansive campaign mentioned in the write-up.
Waiting for this to be reprinted in a larger work is likely to be a futile interim.

Thank you! I have to admit, I got a pretty good laugh out of the mistake. Someone that buys my book based on that description is going to be very very disappointed. Vol. 2 is kickstarting soon so maybe they'll come up with something really wacky for that one too...

I appreciate you telling me so I could correct the description. Sounds like a useful book.

Well TBH, the "corrected" description is from the parent product, which is a digital only offering. This printed product is actually three adventures that are expanded from the one-pagers in that original release. But like I said, close enough, so not worth the effort on your part to change it again.

"Scritch Scratch" was a part of Free RPG Day a few years back. Not sure if they added or expanded anything in it, though the price seems pretty reasonable if you weren't able to get a copy and want a print version.
