The Delta Green Shotgun Scenario contest more or less annually invites members of the Delta Green Mailing List to write brief Call of Cthulhu adventures for the chance of a reward. The 2014 winner will be published in The Unspeakable Oath. The top three winners will receive gift certificates to DriveThruRPG ($20 for first place, $10 for second, $5 for third) and free web hosting for a year from fellow DGML members.
