An excellent end to a well played and run game 10/10 to everyone involved.


I was really happy to hear Jonathan stick to his guns and make the tricky decision to not only involve the locals but to also follow through and have them detain the Agents.Its never an easy choice to involve the police in a game but I feel that D/G especially is a suppressors over shotguns style of game. Was surprised to hear some players comment that they thought that just declaring that they were Federal would make things right as I'm pretty sure the police would still detain them just to check that their badges didn't come from e-bay.
Which would have resulted in a similar outcome when they found out that there was no official reason for them to be there.
As for introducing new characters, I think the easiest way is just to have D/G send a F.N.G as I've found introducing a non read in character super tricky and the investigation stalls as the players get through their suspicious/incredulous part.
Really looking forward to hearing more D/G from you guys as it's an interesting and frustrating setting.

Remember your Handler is only a burner phone call away and the 9mm retirement plan is always an option.

Thanks for the kind words Mark. I feel like I was finally starting to understand the game and setting by the end of this scenario! Shame the team somewhat disintegrated, but I think I came up with an interesting way to work around that for our next scenario, Extremophilia. Hope you enjoy that as well!
