Patsy has brought our most popular Delta Green campaign to life in this stunning image!
To be specific, agents, from left: ex-cartel enforcer Klaus Jimenez; Astrophysicist Neil Shell, just before getting crushed by the abyssal sea; Agent Alex Moore; Agent Arthur Provost; Doctor Kamarov; Agent Domnhall Kellogg (with Aidan making an appearance alongside), Dr. Lydia Cantrell, Prof. Herbert Winkel, and Agent Alan Harper.
Below, we have, top row: A very ominous white poodle; Sorcerous drug entrepreneuse Chi Binh; The monstrous Russian cultist known only as ‘Grandma and her colleagues, attended by adorable household pets; and the burnt ‘Hello Kitty’ binder that started it all (She’s a cat! Like Bast! I finally get it!).
Bottom row: A very upset black bear; Conradin’s cult of alligator-humanoids; Nyarlathotep, in his guise as an overly-touchy motocross rider; the nameless predator, who hunts even the Gods themselves; The King in Yellow, with his personal phone app; and Claramonda, the friendly neighbour who may or may not actually be a giant spider.
We’re starting a new series on RPPR Illustrated to highlight some of our favorite campaigns we’ve recorded over the years. Our first is our Base Raiders picaresque romp, Gate 9! Just an average night at the Brass Door.
Thank you all for your support! It means more to me than ever especially given the state of the world. I hope to see more of you at our next RPPR Livestream, this Saturday (May 9) at 1 pm CST on the Patreon Discord. We’re going to watch some media mentioned quite a bit on our podcast but you’ll have to tune in to find out what’s on tap this week!
The developers of a new city took a few occult shortcuts and before you know it, there’s extra-dimensional horrors tearing through the population. A collage of scenes from our one shot July Park. Listen here for more architectural insanity!
Shaun is always fun in a game and Patsy has captured many memorable moments.
Across the top, left to right:
- Bloodied but unrepentant atop his battlements, Nagalisitu’s Maximilian Klingzor tells Daryl The Squinty-Eyed exactly what he thinks of him;
- From The Grapevine campaign, the Taker once known as The Red Queen talks business over tea with the refined Mister Pennyworth;
- Cutty of Fallen Flag loudly objects, not for the last time, to a most unusual deer.
Along the bottom, left to right:
- The ruthless sicario Klaus Jimenez stalks Tcho-Tcho through a cannabis growhouse in God’s Breath;
- The titular ghost-cowboy of Cottonwood overseeing his many canine servants in the streets of Paige, Texas;
- The enigmatic matriarch Oma squirrels away some of her many secrets in the similarly dense and ambitious mystery game, The Weight Of Her Shadow,
- in Gate 9, Ivan Delouis visits his stable of Golden-Age, golden-years supervillains inside their pocket-dimension retirement community.
Jason and Renee have been a power couple of RPPR so we’re celebrating their games with a montage of some of their best moments!
Top row, left to right, we have Langdon Skarl from Nagalisitu (favored enemy: other PC’s nemeses) wielding his signature weapon; Samuel Morse and Miss Beatrice Lemone of The Mystery of Brighton Lodge, uncovering secrets and lies; Ethel Voltaire and VAL-1138 of Abundance, showcasing very different reactions to a fleeing suspect; a commemorative photo of Lala Lafleur and Dr. Anthony Porter of Midnight Sub Rosa, proudly watching a mansion burn down.
Bottom row, left to right, we have the merry thrill-seekers of GHOST PUNCHERS– Hot-pink Floyd in the Ouija halfpipe, India Jones coming to a very anticlimactic end, Moe Hogan conducting an unorthodox interview, and Bonesaw juicing up with some haunted whey powder; The heretic-hunting team of Battle Sister Henna Orton and Battle-brother Trojohn from Blessings Unheralded; and finally the unflappable housekeeper Hobson and the traumatised Chauffeur Francis of The Halloween Party, enjoying another normal day serving the Blackwood family.
A little over 10 years ago, I began RPPR Actual Play. Since then, we’ve had a lot of great games. Patsy picked some of the more memorable characters I’ve played:
“In the centre, we’ve got the big boss of Role-playing Public Radio, Ross Payton, enjoying a well-earned tot of rum from the comfort of his brutalist mcmansion. Around him, anticlockwise from top left, we have a few choice NPCs- Warbot 5000, the surly twitch-streamer robot from Gate 9; Balgron The Fat, the amiable but devious goblin from The New World; Cool Rat, the super-rad mascot villain of Sucrose Park; and the sinister Deer Hunter who terrorised Fallen Flag.
On the outside, anticlockwise from top left, we have Sheldon Baker, Ace Reporter from Bryson Springs, as he begins to ‘see the strings’; Hard-boiled social worker McBain from The Haunting, grittily reviewing his new case; Agent Provost of God’s Teeth, leaving a token of his appreciation for his co-workers; Kowloon and Ludwig the architecture-quoting dronkey of the Brutalists, friends to children everywhere; heroic military engineer/newspaper editor Castor of Nagalisitu, delivering a mighty dressing-down to a treacherous comrade; and Bartleby of Know Evil, fighting for their life against a horrifying Exsurgent threat under the surface of Luna.”

Adam Scott Glancy, co-author Delta Green and friend of the podcast, has contributed to many of our finest episodes. Patsy created a great collage of the finest moments in his games.
Across the top, left to right, we have the doomed trek across the Alps from Lord Of The Peaks, the house besieged by flying vampires in The Uncorrupted, and a most unusual dogfight from The Night Mission.
Below, we have the sinister court of Ape-Caesar from New Rome, Bronze-age worm sorcerers meeting twentieth-century firepower in U-boot Heraus, a rock-paper-scissors game deciding an enemy Taker’s fate in The Torus, and the franken-dog test subjects from The Wounded.
At the bottom, we have the detritus of many nations and many wars, representing the forty-minute history lesson that begins most Glancy games- or as I like to call it, the best part.
This month we’re celebrating Bridget’s games!
Top left-to-right, we have a veteran furry-porn artist contemplating the design of the God Of Roadkill; The Witch of Dream-away Camp making her presence known; Wolf Knight from Bridget’s Shadowrun games making her usual dramatic entrance.
