Moon Dust Men
President Eisenhower established Project Moon Dust in 1953 to locate¸ contain¸ and coordinate everything known about the alien presence on Earth. The public-relations and open-source arm of Moon Dust was called Project Blue Book. Blue Book ended its work in 1970. It is 1978. Your work never ends. This GUMSHOE campaign frame¸ Moon Dust Men¸ can be a sci-fi¸ conspiracy¸ or horror game - it's up to you to find the truth.
Moon Dust Men includes new abilities (Ufology)¸ new skills (Remote Viewing¸ Psionics)¸ aliens (Greys¸ Nommo)¸ and cryptids (chupacabr a¸ Mothman). This campaign frame introduces Backslash Points¸ a rule-variant for the "weird science" genre typified by The X-Files or Fringe.
A Moon Dust team comprises three to six personnel¸ usually including a linguist¸ a technician¸ and a combat ops specialist. All are airborne¸ or at least jump¸ qualified - UFOs don't always crash near roads or landing strips. The Air Force attempts to cross-train team members in the skills of the others to ensure a team functional capability despite any casualties that may be incurred in their employment.
Ken includes sprinkles of moon dust campaign frames for Ashen Stars¸ Esoterrorists¸ Fear Itself¸ Mutant City Blues¸ Night's Black Agents¸ and Trail of Cthulhu.
The ZIP file includes the PDF¸ EPUB and MOBI versions of this product.
