Cthulhu?

One of my PCs is going to be an agent from another Alpha Complex. I thought it would be fun to give him a secret society that didn't exist in the current Complex with orders to recruit members, and my thought is that he's going to be a Cthulhu cultist. Have any of you done this before? Should I give...

Re: Arguments against Clone Immortality

Obviously any GM can do anything at all, but in the rules as written it seems pretty clear: "It is important to notice that the new clone body is a legally distinct entity from the previous, dead clone, and that aberrations in the genetic template caused by terrorist intervention (including but not ...

Re: Clone origins

Whatever the method, it certainly allows for a lot of mutations to enter the gene pool. I've always felt like the computer makes up new clone DNA based on existing clones. Wasn't there a bit in the old XP-era Underplex book where some pre-apocalypse humans were stored in cryo-storage and they weren'...

Re: Arguments against Clone Immortality

I think that Friend Computer is with Lem, since the new clone is no longer considered guilty of any treason committed by the previous clone. Or am I missing your point?

Re: Paranoia on Twitch - 11/17 at 6:30pm PST

I hope that went well for you! I ran a Paranoia game on Twitch last summer and it never occurred to me to post here about it. Is it preferred that we ask permission here before running stuff on-line? Is there some sort of OGL or similar? What's the process if we want to distribute our game materials...

That's actually really good to know. Thanks for the heads-up.

Agreed, but I wish they'd still sell the pdf. It's been a long time since they published any edition of Paranoia. I know they keep saying that another edition is "soon", but they've been saying that for a long time.

Re: Why is a hard copy of The Little RED Book so much?

I'm in the same boat (have XP, want Troubleshooters). I know that they want to promote their upcoming Paranoia card game, and I've pre-ordered, but I think I'll always be more of a dice chucker than a card flopper at heart and so I'd love to throw Mongoose some money for a pdf or two. (I'll certainl...

Re:

Ultimately, I think Paranoia's dramatic tension comes from the futility of the Troubleshooter's situation. No matter how hard you try the bottom line is your character is a mutant traitorous secret society member with a secondary assignment to kill one or more of your fellow Troubleshooters, who, s...

My copy seems to be missing several illustrations. In their place is a description of what the illustration would be. I've found these on pp. 36, 37, and 47 so far. I bought a copy of Service, Service! this week and I have the same descriptions in those places. Also, the bookmarks in the pdf don't ...

Re: What about Paranoia?

That thing in the works -- was it the removal of the Paranoia pages on this site? :( *pops some happy pills* The secrets of The Computer are completely secured from the Commies now! Hooray! We started a new Paranoia campaign last week. We're using the XP rules (because that's what I could find). I ...
