This is a website for Marc Brown's Call of Cthulhu / Delta Green
role-playing campaigns that have been run periodically since October
2003. The game is running on Tuesday evenings until December 2006.
I can claim no responsibility for the devious nature of the plots,
nor the mean-spirited scrapes the players find themselves in for
this is not my game. I am a player, but one with an insatiable need
to record, correlate and disseminate.
The information on this site comes from my own personal need to
make sense of what the hell is going on. As if the large cast of
characters, numerous unfollowed leads and simultaneous investigation
of several cases was not enough, Marc is now running three parallel
campaigns. In addition to the original adventures of the mid-west
team, Marc now also runs a separate campaign for the north-east
team and an irregular series of games for the north-west team. Obviously,
something that happens in one campaign can affect the other two.
Makes you want to throttle him, doesn't it?
Hopefully, the information here is clear, concise and above all
edifying. It isn't really designed for anyone outside the gaming
groups, but if you're such a person and you have wandered in then
please make yourself at home. Navigate by using the menu to your
left, or the sitemap page.
The information on the site is divided into several sections:
This is an overview of the setting itself. It discusses the remit
and resources of the evidence response teams, as well as the hierachy
within each team. Generic information that is not specifically related
to dates, cases or people can be found here.
A detailed account of each session played during the campaign. Currently
only sessions for the mid-west campaign are featured, but I hope
to expand this soon.
A chronological list of all events that have taken place since the
campaign began on 26 September 2000. Again there is a significant
bias to the activities of the mid-west team, but I'm working to
fill in the gaps. The timeline gives only the briefest overview
of what happened when. It links back to more extensive accounts
elsewhere on the site.
A very brief summary of cases on the books of the mid-west evidence
response team that the agents have not quite got around to starting
yet. It must be all the time they spend in hospital.
A brief synopsis of each case investigated by the agents. This is
where theories and summaries of "what was really going on"
can be found. Summaries for cases that are still in progress are
listed but may obviously be changed.
A complete list of every player and non-player character in the
campaign listed by surname. There are an extremely large number
of entries in this list, so it is subdivided by letter of the alphabet.
This is where you can find information on all the 'goodies' the
mid-west evidence response team has been given, have stolen or are
currently keeping for evidence. Many of these items are loose ends
that need chasing up.
This is a record of all the special agents that work for the mid-west
evidence response team. These are the PC backgrounds that flesh
out the back story of the characters before they joined evidence
response. This section also chronicles the personal highlights of
each agent since joining the team.
One last thing: as this isn't my own role-playing campaign I do
not have a comprehensive understanding of the setting, and haven't
a clue what direction the plot is heading. This site is probably
replete with mistakes and misspellings. Please feel obligued to
point out any that you find and I'll correct them. Also I feel beholden
to point out that this site is not all my own work. I've used Malcolm's
notes on several occassions (particularly on the Apache Joe case).
And of course, I suppose I should thank Marc without whose devious
imagination none of this would be possible.
