Welcome to America at the end of the millennium. Do you know who is pulling the strings?
Delta Green knows. Things from beyond space and time that lurk and titter in the shadows, the slow rot at the core of humanity, the dark stars that whirl madly above--these are the true masters of the world. Delta Green has been fighting them since the 1928 Raid on Innsmouth, and the fight still rages on.
You are either a special agent of the FBI agent based in Phoenix, AZ, or a special liaison to that FBI office. Last month, people began disappearing near the southern edge of the San Carlos Indian Reservation, west of Phoenix, Arizona. The first people missed were an elderly couple, the Curtleys; they were due at their son's home for dinner a month ago. The Curtley's car was found on State Road 70 with a flat tire, but there was no sign of the Curtleys. At a nearby gas station on State Road 70 an attendant, Felix Royos, disappeared while working the night shift two days after the Curtleys vanished. Four day later, Ed Stoltz and Chris Martin were reported missing while fishing on the Coolidge Dam reservoir, less than four miles from State Road 70. Their camp was found abandoned, with no signs of violence or emergency. As the Arizona highway patrol and the Apache tribal police began to investigate, they noticed more disappearances connected to that area. The abandoned rental cars of two European couples - Rolf Trautner & Freda Ollenburg, and Mr. & Mrs. Van Olson - were found two weeks ago. Both cars were on the side of State Road 70, and neither showed signs of sabotage or mechanical failure. An Apache sheep ranger, Victorio Begay, as well as his wife and two teenage sons, vanished from their beds, leaving their flock unattended for at least a week. The Begay ranch is within fifteen miles of State Road 70. The national press has already picked up the story, dubbing the stretch of road "The Devil's Highway."
You have been brought in using the jurisdictional pretext that since there were no bodies, the disappearances are kidnappings and not murders. Privately, the FBI is concerned about tribal relations in the area and the possibility of radical Native American activity; your superiors wish to avoid situations such as the Leonard Peltier incident of the 1970's. You are to lend the local police all possible assistance, but are not supposed to take over the case. Your boss is Patrick Hobbson, Special-Agent-in-Charge for Phoenix. The liaison with the Arizona state police is Major Frank Garrett. The Apache tribal police liaison is Sheriff Mangas Colorados.
