Pagan Publishing, the independent game publishing company, has
breathed new life into modern horror roleplaying in the Call of Cthulhu universe. Their combined works Delta Green and Delta Green: Countdown are being hailed by many as the best horror/conspiracy game supplements ever made.
Unfortunately, they are based in the Chaosium Call of Cthulhu system. While it isn't a horrible system (maybe "dog with fleas" would be a good way to describe it), it isn't as rules-light and minimal as other games are, like FUDGE, Star Wars or the D6 System. Luckily, Craig Griswold came along and put a set of D6 System-based rules together for modern horror/conspiracy role playing called Into the Shadows. This phenomenal piece of praxis can be downloaded free over the Internet.
If we were to combine the two, we could easily play with some of the most interesting, horrifying and well-supported game material in a rules-light environment: Call of Cthulhu and the Delta Green line of supplements is a phenomenal, roleplaying-inducing setting. It is only natural to want to use a minimal system that is also geared towards roleplaying. That is what I attempted to do.
