Delta Green is a game setting for Call of Cthulhu, the popular horror roleplaying game published by Chaosium, Inc. It is a game about mystery, discovery, and horror, in which the characters are more or less ordinary men and women who slowly unravel terrible mysteries about the utterly alien powers at work in the universe.

Based on the writings of Jazz-era author H.P. Lovecraft and a number of authors who wrote stories based on his "Cthulhu Mythos," Call of Cthulhu is nominally set in the 1920s, and its scenarios have always been written with a small group of investigators, largely without organization or resources, in mind.

Pagan Publishing's sourcebooks bring Lovecraft's "Cthulhu Mythos," and the men and women who encounter it, squarely into the modern day. They postulate a secret group dedicated to investigating alien and supernatural horrors, using the resources of the U.S. government to do so. Originally a unit of the Office of Strategic Services (the forerunner of the Central Intelligence Agency), Delta Green is now officially disbanded, its activities patently illegal; but its members carry on no matter what the cost, desperately facing the horrors that threaten mankind.

Delta Green was created by Pagan Publishing, an independent, small-press publisher under license from Chaosium to produce supplements for Call of Cthulhu. Originally developed in a 1992 issue of Pagan Publishing's acclaimed gaming magazine The Unspeakable Oath, Delta Green was published as a massive, award-winning sourcebook in 1997, to be followed by an award-winning sequel, Countdown, in 1999, and several smaller supplemental chapbooks and books of fiction.

Widely recognized as one of the finest Call of Cthulhu sourcebooks to date, DG won the Origins award (the premiere gaming industry award) for Best Roleplaying Supplement of 1997. Its sequel, Countdown, won the Origins award for Best Roleplaying Supplement of 1999. The fiction anthologies Alien Intelligence and Dark Theatres won the Origins awards for Best Game-Related Fiction of 1997 and 1999, and The Rules of Engagement won the Origins award for Best Game-Related Novel of 1999.

A War of Attrition is meant as a resource for Keepers of DG campaigns, containing information on locations, organizations, characters, and artifacts. Some are drawn from the game books and supplements themselves, some from magazines, some from fiction, and some from reality with a little creative license. In all cases, the utmost care has been taken to credit appropriate source material.
