Are there any for Delta Green? What about Shotgun Scenarios?

Also interested in any scenarios of any system that have an X file flavor to them.

Thoughts?

The first edition of Delta Green from the mid-90s has a very "X-Files meets Cthulhu" vibe to it, so if you track down the original books (Delta Green, Countdown, and Eyes Only, in particular), you'll get exactly that in terms of the sourcebooks, but with only one adventure AFAIK that deals directly with the grays.

Spoilers follow:

 

The main book, Delta Green 1st edition, pitches one of the main antagonists as being the Fungi from Yuggoth who study the human race via some "puppets" that are effectively gray aliens. They do this because, in the past, direct contact with humans resulted in much insanity and problems... they are using the more humanoid appearance of the grays to better deal with humans. Majestic-12 collaborates with the grays, very much like in X-Files, and by and large they are unaware that these are "fake" -- they just enjoy getting cool alien technology in exchange for a few hundred American lives. Delta Green however is starting to realize what's going on, and thus are on a collision course with MJ-12.

This main book has 3 scenarios, one of which is an extremely deadly one where you are going directly on the grays/Mi-Go's turf. Agents typically don't survive that adventure and those that do are changed forever... I'll let you read it before saying more.

Outlook has mostly a bunch of factions you can use, including The Outlook Group, effectively the psycho-paranormal division of MJ12, and Phenomen-X, which is a reality show about aliens whose journalists and staff can be PCs, allies, or enemies. There are 3 adventures in there but IIRC none of them have any grays in there.

Eyes Only has an entire chapter called "Machinations of the Mi-Go", which of course deals with what the Mi-Go are up to, what their technology is, etc. This includes some bits about their "gray aliens" subterfuge.

WOW! This is SUPER helpful! I only recently got into Delta Green and only have the newer books. I recently read PX Poker Night and it is very much about what we are talking about (I wont give spoilers here). I will start investigating these!
