After the rural community of Palerock is devastated by a freak storm, the townsfolk are left to pick up the pieces and rebuild their lives. Nearly everyone in town has lost loved ones in the disaster, and many of the locals have turned to a bizarre source of comfort. On the outskirts of town, an old man has set up a telephone booth where his grieving neighbors can dial up the dead and have a chat. Is this a harmless method of coping with loss, or is something more sinister afoot? When a string of unexplained deaths brings the community to Delta Green’s attention, three agents must investigate to find the truth.
When The Crash came, with its pleading Vectors and shambling Casualties, death marches and Recession, it was only natural that people would turn to religion. The people of Bountiful, Utah, flocked to the temple, trusting in The Lord to see them through the end. But the world went on, and now, five years later, the safe haven of the Bountiful Enclave seems more like a pen than a refuge. Five Takers, eager to make a name for themselves, set out on a mission of mercy to put a client’s beloved parents to rest. On the way, they’ll encounter forgotten scenes of horror from the early days of the apocalypse, impossibly trapped Casualties, and nearly impassable obstacles. Can they reach the retirement community, locate the client’s family and get the job done, or will they join the ranks of the dearly departed wandering endlessly within the retirement community’s gates? Listen to find out, as we kick off another Spooktober with the first installment of our Red Markets campaign!

The San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 was the worst disaster to ever hit the city, and one of the worst disasters the U.S. has ever faced. The city was almost completely destroyed, and it took years to recover. But in Chinatown, where the city’s poorest citizens lived, the destruction was complete. Between the earthquake itself and the destruction caused in trying to recover, not one building was left standing.
Into the rubble go the children of Chinese immigrants, going home to try to pick up the pieces and find their families. But the earthquake did more than just destroy buildings and take lives — it released something that was trapped. Something evil and angry. Something that wants revenge.
If you want to learn more about the San Francisco earthquake, and the architectural style that rose from the rubble, listen to this great episode of 99 Percent Invisible.
