Delta Green: Ex Oblivione Reviewed on The Daily Dope #444

A double dip of Delta Green from Arc Dream

I share my review of the Delta Green adventure Ex Oblivione and take a first look at the Need to Know quickstart and screen, both from Arc Dream Publishing. Plus a wee bit of gaming news from Flying Pig Games, Ubisoft, Chaosium Inc, Versus Evil, Dias Ex Machina, and more.

Summary
Ex Oblivione starts off extremely promising and I especially love the tie in with The Shadow Over Innsmounth. In fact, the adventure is top notch up until the Agents arrive in the Arizona town of Mustang. At this point, the wheels fall right off a as the climax seems almost played out as violence for the sake of violence; the players don't really have any recourse as the finale seems set in stone. The ending just seems slapped on, with little real gameable info for the Game Master to flesh out concerning the massacre, with the end game for the players to simply survive while hundreds of townfolk are slain. That might work in a horror movie but I just can't see many players enjoying that as part of an ongoing RPG campaign.
