This scenario, “The Birdcage,” is from the Spycraft supplement Combat Missions by Yours Truly. You can read more about Delta Green at Please note: This story hour contains spoilers!

Our cast of characters includes:

•   Game Master: Michael Tresca (
•   Kurtis “Hammer” Grange (Fast/Dedicated Hero/Gunslinger) played by George Webster

Because I plan so far in advance, at this point I have five or six scenarios ready to go depending on which players show up.  This is a necessity, because sometimes I’m never sure whom I’m going to get.  I didn’t realize George was playing until he arrived. Since he showed up first, I decided to go ahead and advance his plotline.

In Hammer’s case, it’s clear he’s being used as bait.  I felt like this scenario was successful in emphasizing Hammer’s character development and personal plotline. The original purpose of the combat mission – to capture four of the worst murderers in America – was ignored for the larger terrorist plot.  Or to put it another way, when you work for the Counter-Intelligence Field Agency, you worry more about terrorists than you do criminals.

And heck, if they’re patriotic criminals, all the better!
