    Cool number station shit you could do with a party.

    They go and investigate an underground base or lab in a city. The party returns above ground, the city is destroyed, the sky is blood red. The only signal of any kind they can receive is from an unknown number station somewhere nearby. It sounds something like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/26/UVB-76.ogg

    Odds are good that they're messages transmitted in cipher. Really nothing creepy about it. For creepy, or more accurately insane, check out Dead Hand.

    Was an automated retaliation protocol set up by the USSR at the height of the Cold War intended to ensure that in the event of an American preemptive nuclear strike, Russia could retaliate even if its entire government was wiped out. It came so close to being fully automated - if various radio towers were hit and stopped transmitting, seismic sensors reported abnormal activity, etc... it would initiate an automated nuclear counterstrike against the US. However, the Russians realized how bat shit insane this was, and the system was implemented only being semi-automated.

    Dead Hand is still operational.

    A boy named Jorge da Costa Alves (who was 18 at that time) was flying a kite at the Morro do Vintém (Vintém Hill), in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil when he found two dead men. Immediately, he made his way back home and called the police. Soon the spot was full of police officers, firefighters and journalists.

    The bodies were next to each other, slightly covered by grass. They were wearing suits, lead masks and water-proof coats. There was no sign of violence to the bodies or to the surrounding area. Next to the bodies, the police found an empty bottle of water and a packet containing two towels. The masks were a type typically used for protection from radiation, and it is these masks that have given the case its name. Police found a small notebook stating: "16:30 estar no local determinado. 18:30 ingerir cápsulas, após efeito proteger metais aguardar sinal máscara", which translates to "16:30 be at the agreed place. 18:30 swallow capsules, after effect protect metals wait for sign mask [or 'mask sign']".

    In February 1948, distress calls were picked up by numerous ships near Indonesia. The SOS calls came from the Dutch freighter SS Ourang Medan. The signals claimed, "All officers including captain are dead lying in chartroom and bridge. Possibly whole crew dead." This message was followed by indecipherable Morse code then, "I die."

    Within hours of the first distress signals, the first rescue ship arrived on the scene. Upon arrival, the rescue vessel tried to hail the Ourang Medan but there was no response to their hand and whistle signals. A boarding party was sent to the ship and what they found was astonishing. All the crew and officers of the Ourang Medan were dead, their eyes open, faces looking towards the sun, arms outstretched and a look of terror on their faces. Even the ship's dog was dead, found snarling at some unseen enemy. When nearing the bodies in the boiler room, the rescue crew felt a chill though the temperature was near 110°F.

    The decision was made to tow the ship back to port. As the ship was prepared to be towed, smoke began rolling up from the hull. The rescue crew left the ship and barely had time to cut the tow lines before the Ourang Medan exploded and sank.

    How about this?

    The party stops at a small inn in the middle of the woods. There's a small cabin out back. The party is treated well by the host, fine meal and all, but one of them senses it's odd. One of the party member sneaks off at night (hope you got a sneaky type in your party) to see what's in the cabin. To their horror, it's a whole family, butchered and slain. That character then runs to tell the rest of the party. From here you can branch into:
    -the party wakes up, kills the innkeeper, but later found out that the innkeeper isn't the killer.
    -the rest of the party is already slain by the innkeeper.
    -the party wakes up and finds the innkeeper similarly butchered in the innkeeper's own room. WHO WAS INNKEEPER

    And as an added bonus, that tasty meat last night? That ain't pork.

    Horror is based on sharp contrasts. Sound goes a very long way toward that. I use Atmosphere Deluxe, but there's a free light version and other sample players.

    Normality is established with street sounds, traffic, people talking, children playing, maybe some birds, and Easy Listening music.
    Mystery scenes get spooky score and unexpected sudden sounds like night birds, things rustling or crashing to the ground, and first subliminal sounds of a soothing character.
    Horror gets wicked shit like Kronos Quartet mixed with mean subliminal aggravators and the occasional stressed heartbeat or heavy breathing.

    Dim the lights a little, turn up the AC, put a CD with occasional short disturbing sounds on repeat in the other room and NEVER play during daylight.

    I had an internship with the CIA and was assigned to assist a field agent search for sources of SSTV radio broadcasts. I wasn't allowed to know where we were, but it was obvious we were in Alaska, or Canada given the fact that day break lasted the entire week.

    Most of what we were looking for were just SSTV broadcasts left over from the cold war. It's amazing they were still operating, their water wheels should have frozen over.

    Basically we went to a point on snowmobile, listened for a broadcast, checked the image and went on.

    I don't know if you've ever heard an SSTV broadcast, but it's fucking creepy.

    Anyway we're pretty much done when we pick up a signal that isn't supposed to be there. Looking at the image it showed up it was clear is was not by a river and must be some one else's. He thought it was a a Russian spy camera, I thought it was a hunter's.

    We picked up some radiation from our Geiger counter and stumbled on a crater with what looked like an old soviet rocket with a cluster engine. We went too far out of our way to continue on and a blizzard was picking up so we took a few pictures and set up camp a few hundred yards away under some trees.

    We were going over the mystery broadcast again in out tent when a different image began to show up. The scan was slow, but it was an aerial view of our camp.

    We panicked and grabbed out guns but there was nothing in the sky.

    Then all of a sudden a noise rang out. It was unbearably loud and shook the earth. It sounded almost like a whale's song. It went on for about a minute and then stopped.

    So did our mystery broadcast.

    I may have slightly embellished it, but in the "New Discoveries" part of the wikipedia article..

    >The inscriptions led to a dating of the mechanism to around 100 BC. It is evident that they contain a manual with an astronomical, mechanical and geographical section. The name HISPANIA (ΙΣΠΑΝΙΑ, Spain in Greek) in these texts is the oldest reference to this country under this form, as opposed to Iberia.

    I'm partial to the story of the Monster with 21 Faces:

    >It started with two armed men who broke into the home of the president of Glico, kidnapping him in front of his family. The men held the executive in a warehouse, calling the company and demanding 100 million Yen and 100 kilos of gold bullion. The victim escaped the warehouse before he could find out whether or not his company was willing to pay to ransom his ass. None of the bad guys were caught and that's too bad, because the "Monster" wasn't through.

    >A couple of weeks later, several cars in the company parking lot were set on fire. Then, the "Monster" began to send letters.

    >In the first letter (sent in a plastic container along with hydrochloric acid because why the hell not?) the Monster claimed they had poisoned Glico's candies, which resulted in Glico losing $21 million dollars worth of product that had to be pulled from shelves. The number may be a coincidence, but then again, who knows? The Monster taunted the police by detailing in a letter its method of entry, what typewriter it used to write the message and where it found the container with the acid in it. It didn't matter; cops scoured the country for them and came up empty.

    >Soon enough, just to prove they were toying with everyone, the Monster suddenly sent a letter stating its forgiveness of Glico, and moved on.
    >> Anonymous 06/24/10(Thu)11:50 No.10713202
    >The Monster then turned its attention to another food company: Morinaga. Another letter was sent, similar to the Glico one, only this time, investigations turned up a total of 21 packages laced with the highly toxic sodium cyanide. Being the polite kind of shadowy creepy terrorist/terrorist group, the boxes were helpfully labeled with "Contains Toxins," an example all criminals should follow.

    >The police, getting desperate, thought they caught a glimpse of the mastermind behind the Monster during a money drop (the group had demanded cash from another company). An officer described the criminal mastermind as a man having "eyes like those of a fox," which would give him the nickname "The Fox-Eyed Man."

    >The same mysterious man was spotted again later, in a car during a sting operation. He escaped, but the cops found the car, and a radio transceiver that he had been using to listen into all of the police communications during the sting.

    >So finally they've got a description of one of the bad guys! That resulted in... nothing. The Monster tormented several corporate giants for years, mocked the police, walked the streets as some of the most wanted men in the world and not a single one of them ever got caught. A police superintendent got so frustrated by being outmaneuvered by the Monster that he resigned in disgrace. Oh, wait, we misread that. He actually, committed suicide by fucking setting himself on fire.

    >Before disappearing into the night like goddamned Keyser Soze, the "Monster" released a letter mocking the dead man, and announced it would stop torturing food companies, apparently taking this entire thing as some sort of childish game. The Monster's final words to the public:

    >We are bad guys. That means we've got more to do other than bullying companies. It's fun to lead a bad man's life.

    The monster had 21 faces, all of them Guy Fawkes masks.

    There is no end to the shit that can be used in a game to make it creepy as hell, but what I like to hear about are the things you can use out of character to help with the freakyness. I remember a little trick I learned from /tg/ shortly after /tg/ was born. It works best if the game is already a bit creepy and you have the players in the right mood.

    "You open the door into the storage room. TYhe light from the hallway fills the room, reflecting off of the stacked metal boxes, the tears rolling down the your girls face, and a puddle of what you hope is motor oil in one corner. The door creaks loudly as it reached the end of its swing."

    When the players try to have their characters go to the little girl to help her, look at them confused and say "What girl?"

    It is very important that you say this with as much sincerity as you can muster. If you crack a smile at all, the effect goes from "WTFohgodohgod" to "The GM is being a dick".

    So, You'r PC's are a squad of mercenaries, directed by an AI commander diving into a enemy compound at the request of their immediate human commander. All's going to shit, but it's shit they can handle. They go in, blow the enemy to pieces, and then get stopped by a large vaulted door. Next to the door however, is a half walled up old wooden door. HQ is informed, scematics are brought up, and it is indeed, a side passage that leads around the vaulted door. They break the door down, and enter.

    So, the passage before them in unlit, and the first thing they see is some sandbags, and various desks and other mundane furniture set up as a barricade. If they inspect the barricade at all, they would notice that it's set up in a way that it's killzones are pointing towards the door they just came in from. Moving down the corridor, they find that the walls have caved in at some places, forcing them to go through abandoned rooms, three sets in total, one down a hallway to the left, third door down, the second in a hallway to the right, first door, and the third being a sort of a lobby for the main administrative area.
    >> Psyker Ted 06/24/10(Thu)12:35 No.10713778
    Now, the place is overgrown, seemingly abandoned some time ago. As they approach the first cave in, comms with HQ cut out, if they go back towards the entrance, the comms seem to have malfunctioned, and would still be out. So onward the party presses. The hallway they would need to go down is longer then expected, indeed, if they have a HUD device, or really any sort of a map, they would notice that the hallway is much longer then what is shown, leaving the end of the hallway still in darkness. The rooms they pass are a mess, torn up, and the furniture thrown around. The third room they pass, they notice that the wall adjoining it has been broken down. If inspected, revealing that it was not caused by any sort of natural means. If any were to go further down the hallway, they would start the see that at the end of the hallway a smooth, black rock dominates what looks like a door frame. If the players continue to look at it for more then a few actions, or one of them inspects it, they must roll a willpower check.

    "You fell as if something freezes up in your gut, your hand starts shaking, but your mind is filled with a sweet, sickly scent. You reach out to touch the black rock..."

    "Suddenly, before the tip of your finger touches it's unnaturally smooth surface, a hand shoots out, grabbing you at the wrist. Screaming fills the air, and a dread washes over the party as you all realize it isn't you."

    So, the PC's have an encounter with the unknown. A obsidian, vaguely humanoid shape starts to crawl out of the stone, using the player it has grabbed as an anchor. If the player wrenches free of it's grasp, or the team uses armor piercing ammunition against it, the freed player is pushed to the back of the party, right next to the room connecting to the next hallway. The team, if they try to communicate at all, speaks now in an entirely different language. The wall buckles and growns, cracks beginning to show in the once smooth obsidian. Soon, skeletal alien creatures start shedding out of the stone, with long, clawed arms and crocodile like heads, the things move frighteningly fast. The team may either run, or open fire. Play the scene out entirely, ending on two conditions, the first being that the creatures, intent on capturing the team, succeed, or second, that the team escapes to the second hallway.

    If they team stands and fights, they seem to only hold the creatures at bay with their firepower, but the creatures, far from being weak, seem to shrug off normal bullets, and only give to higher calibers or bullets designed for hard targets. Eventually, the team is overrun, the things dragging them back, and through the wall, any yells or communication, again, is in another language. Any inspection made by anyone but the one who initiated the contact reveals nothing, while the single other member reveals that they are a special operations team from either the enemies country/forces, or another country all together. Once combat ends with the parties demise, revert back to the scene where the person is grabbed.

    It was all just a memory, or illusion. Whatever.

    This gives the player a second chance to give warning, and move the party through to the other hallway.

    Bottom line was that they were about to take a trip through time. The AI commander is suppose to be their contact throughout this whole ordeal, intermittently fading in and out of contact. To themselves, I doubt any of the players would question the help at any point, so they would miss out on the important question of time. The important thing would be that the door they came through would be the furthest extent of the excavation. The next room would have been closer to their own time period, but full of STALKER type anomalies that only existed when certain conditions were met, such as an electrical field filling the room to the next hallway, that could only be de-activated by opening and closing doors down the hallway, consequently making it more and more dangerous to stick around. The door that was supposedly in the previous hallway, leading back out to the outside world, moves up to take the place of a jammed, invincible door in this hallway.

    In the end, the door that was supposedly connected to the area they originally wanted to get into, was the same type of door they came in through. After one last freaky encounter, they would step out into the Post-Apoc world of the future, with the HQ AI greeting them once more, and asking for their assistance to repair it.

    Then, obviously, the world would, as hinted at the end, end on the 6th of July 2027, at exactly 1:27 AM.

    This thing is just trying too hard. Hidden messages would be interesting, possible easter egg by developers. Having it be a prophecy collection would be a mindfuck. Having it be that, AND a doomsday hint just makes it seem like someone pulling everything within arms reach into it.

    Chaos theory also tells that this well. Even if someone knew the future and said the world would end, even the knowledge or the act of observation would alter that.

    Now prepare to get mindfucked.
    Some predictions come true because people subconsciously want them to. That's why, if someone has made a prediction about the world ending there are always people who want it to end as predicted. The significance of this is that the doomsday prediction itself increases the probability of the doomsday actually happening, provided it's within human control to cause or prevent it at the time.

    Similar things happened to me many times, although mostly with words instead of concepts. Still it's creepy.

    Back on topic, I was living in Bosnia and Herzegovina for few years and had really old radio in an apartment there.

    I was reading about TEMPEST studies and came upon a computer program for GNU/Linux operating system which used cathode-ray tube monitors to transmit radio signals. I planned to use my ancient radio to receive them. The radio was capable of receiving much larger spectrum of amplitude modulated waves than modern radios. What surprised me was that I was able to catch several stations which were transmitting buzzing sounds and beeps all the time. Too bad I didn't save frequency lists. In the end, I managed to eavesdrop on my monitor using radio.

    Here are few related links:
    It's disturbing to see that LCD screens can be easily eavesdropped too.

    Dead Hand is actually very, very relieving. If you think about the name, dead hand, you start to get the picture of a dead guy pressing a button to launch all the nukes. That was it's actual purpose - to ensure that, no matter what, Russia would be able to retaliate in case of a nuclear strike. This meant that no matter what Russia would never jump the gun, because they knew that they would always get their shot off, regardless of if their entire staff died. On that note, you are making the trigger for the system sound way too simple - the system had to be armed, it had to detect seismic activity, and the entire soviet government had to be dead for it to go off.

Vacuum decay is the ultimate ecological catastrophe; in the new vacuum there are new constants of nature; after vacuum decay, not only is life as we know it impossible, so is chemistry as we know it. However, one could always draw stoic comfort from the possibility that perhaps in the course of time the new vacuum would sustain, if not life as we know it, at least some structures capable of knowing joy.

    So have you guys heard of the Black Dog signal?

    Using a short wave radio on the Isle of Mann you can pick up a signal coming from he mainland. It's just a simple morse code message that loops "Stand by for further instructions."

    July 6th, 1989, in Los Angeles, CA... two nights in a row prior we'd had weird noises (as in: kind of like a metal sheet being shaken in a strong wind) in and around the neighborhood (area adjoining Santa Monica and Venice, near the Boardwalk). It was the speakers for a place called The Brig, and someone had left the radio on. Normally, during the day, you could hear whatever the last guy was listening to, pumped out into the street.

    On July 7th, 1989, it changed from music to a low hum, then a kind of pulsing shriek - not a mechanical or electrical kind, mind you - the kind people make when something bad is happening.

    It kept up for five minutes, then stopped. Started up again the next day - louder, longer and more clearly. Needless to say, nobody who lived near the place could sleep very well, cops got called and it got interesting when they cops got the owner to disconnect the speakers entirely: weren't hooked to the interior of the building. They were hooked to a parked car. No battery in the car, just a microphone and a big phonebook.

    I love LA.

    However I totally agree with Dead Hand and I would definitely feel comfortable with it if I was russia. I'd know full well if the US bombed me and my family while i slept, they'd receive the same kindness beyond the grave or not.

    Plus it's the most badass deterrent ever, right down to the name. Nobody risks launching anything when you're effectively staring down the barrel of a nuclear holocaust. you'd literally have to be insane to the point of reveling in the rape of the planet and the human race.

    Without Dead Hand, it would be worse. If the Russians had nothing to fall back on, they'd be a lot more anxious, because if there was a launch, they would have to make sure they got their own birds off before everyone in the control room was incinerated. This lessens response time and encourages you to react to a false positive without adequate information. Dead Hand lets you take your time.

    If he launches a single nuke then every nuclear country in the world will retaliate, and NK wouldn't have the stockpile to make everyone else a mess.

    There isn't a single country in the world that would support another country that started a nuclear war. Far too dangerous for everyone.

    The only reason mad = apocalypse is becuase the major nuclear countries are large, and that means that there'd be a lot of damage and nuclear winter, plus whichever country started it would have to hit it's targets allies or face even more retaliation.

    you don't seem to understand how long an icbm missile takes from launch to strike. we're talking about a several hour flight time.

    No, no, you don't seem to understrand what I was saying, nothing about necessity or usefulness, I was just talking reassurance, of which there is none, as no matter how you look at it, it was a preparation in the expectation of being hit by a small sun in multiple places at once.

    And on the opposite you have to scramble military responses, assemble the cabinet and prepare for actually retaliating etc etc. Shit takes AGES. remember the people who directly control this shit might not even be anywhere near the control room.

    Not really, there are people always sitting at the launch controls. they're constantly manned.

    In the us at least all it takes is an executive order to launch them.

    Best answer ever.

    Play a modern spy game with the purpose of knocking a number of enemy numbers stations out, since your bosses believe they're used by spies.

    Once you take out the first couple, there are rumours of things going awry, the group meet refugees on the road who refuse to talk about their experiences, with a dead, haunted look in their eyes.

    The moment the last one is taken out, all hell breaks loose.

    The only thing I have is about 35 minutes, it says nothing about actual range or the target though. I may have been thinking about the other half of any strike plan which would include bombers.

    So currently the only source I have is the stuff in the history books about the US almost ordering a launch but lacking the ability to hit before Russia could launch in retaliation and canceling.

    I wasn't talking about a long period of time though, when I said hours I meant as in 1 or 2 of them, which would be more than long enough to order a retaliation, since any initial lauch would be detected instantly.

    What's creepy about public assassinations isn't the fact that powerful people can be murdered anytime, anywhere. It's the fact that so many people can be persuaded to believe impossible versions of well-documented events.

    That really depends. If the United States is launching an all-out nuclear attack, you can be damn sure it's not a spur-of-the-moment thing. There's no guarantee that any of the control centers are in contact with the proper officials, or that they haven't already been compromised. In a worst-case scenario like that, nothing is certain. Which is one reason why Dead Hand exists. If everything is completely peachy and all of your techs are up to speed, you can confirm and launch in a few minutes. But even when you're not at war, things are rarely completely peachy.

    I guess Dead Hand really isn't likely to be needed except in the most dire of circumstances, but those are what it was built for.

    "What is true?" is a question people tend to avoid, at least most of the time. When you start digging, you quickly find things you don't like. Ignorance secures the mind.

    That's where the numbers come in, the enemy may have more successful launches, but when you've got 3 missiles for every pre-picked target, you're sure to be hitting at least most of them, no matter how many failures there are.

    That was the whole point to the giant nuclear buildup in the first place.

    It added up to more than three per target. Cheyenne Mountain had several gigatons reportedly aimed at it and a few bombardment plans for the pentagon, which the Russians were convinced had hardened structures underneath it, involved 1 warhead arriving every 3 minutes for 90 minutes straight.

    Unless nukes are designed to penetrate into the ground before detonation, the actual crater they produce isn't exactly spectacular.

    It's like letting a firework off in the palm of your hand. It might burn you, but it won't do much damage deep in.

    Contact detonations would make progressively deeper holes, and a target you're trying to penetrate that may be reinforced would call for contact detonations.

    30 nuclear contact detonations in the same place would leave you with a small (really radioactive) sea, never mind a crater.
