Per a conversation we had on the latest episode of Beyond the Wall of Patreon, Chris has devised a surreal Jingle All the Way UA scenario.
.
 ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all thru the mart, not a customer was stirring, despite discount Paul Blart. The Day Shift had a truly busy day, true, but this left Darby, Ann and Mike with nothing to do. The night forecast to be nothing more than a bore, but then three strange customers entered the store…

Aaron – Abe – Beloved gutter mage from a yet to be published UA campaign.
Adam – Mike –  Optimistic prosthetic wearing All-Mart employee trying to contain the store’s weirdness.
Ian – Darby – Works at the All-Mart to uncover what caused her college friend’s death.
Vince – Ann – Ann took up a job at the All-Mart in the hopes that she might find her creator (psst Ann is a robot)

Actual Play – Delta Green – Fishing Hole

Fishing Hole

Jeremy- Agent Catlit
 
Patrick – Agent Poprdan
 
Vince – Agent  Breiner
*Note*

This scenario’s creation was based on a creepy pasta story  “My Uncle’s Bizarre Encounter in a US Intelligence Agency”.  At Gen Con I mentioned to Review Cultist of the Al Denta Rigamortis podcast that this pasta would make an excellent DG scenario.  This lead to us deciding to do a RPX / ADR crossover episode.  Be sure to swing by Al Dente Rigamortis to check out ADR Episode 233 ” My Uncle’s Bizarre Encounter in a US Intelligence Agency” in which Review Cultist and I discuss the twice mentioned creepy pasta story.  A great time was had by all.
