Re: Paranoia Primer for convention game

Which edition will you be using?

I don't have a handout, but I could dredge up my outline for explaining the setting. I found it takes about three minutes to talk about everything. Would that be useful, or are you definitely looking for a handout?

Re: PDF Mistake

The "Genetic Deviance Is Treason" card in the RAM deck is missing at least one line of text at the end (possibly more).

Re: Spot the Terrorist!

This was answered on Reddit. You discard the card after doing it once.

Spot the Terrorist!

My copy of "Spot the Terrorist!" (from the RAM deck) is missing the way you discard it. I could rule that it only happens once then gets discarded, but it feels like something that might be intended as on-going, at least for a while. Do any of the supplementary resources say how this card is suppose...

Intimidating Codgers

I'm confused by the rules for when a codger attempts to intimidate someone (from the survival guide, p. 58). The rules say that when codgers try to intimidate someone they have NODE -1, but when they try to use Violence or Intimidate they have NODE -2. How does this shake out in actual play? When do...

PDF Mistake

Do we report mistakes in the pdf files here? The Smashatron card in the bot module pdf has the Repairatron rules text.

Print-On-Demand Blank Cards

I know very little about how print-on-demand cards work so I have no idea if this is a reasonable request. If not then please just say so. :) The current option sends you sixty blank cards with four types of back: Action, Equipment, Mutant Power, and Secret Society. For my needs (which I recognize m...

Full-Time Troubleshooters

Now that being a troubleshooter is a full-time job instead of something done on the side after you've finished your day job at a service firm, is it assumed that there's just a big backlog of troubleshooter missions (so that there's never a day with nothing to do)? Do troubleshooters spend most of t...

Re: Secret Societies cards

Thank-you. I have a history of creating new secret societies (and mandatory bonus duties, for that matter), so I just want to make sure I know the ramifications of my meddling. :)

Re: Secret Societies cards

Aside from initially allowing players to randomly draw their secret society card, is there any mechanical advantage to using cards for this? As far as I can tell they never get used in combat, though I suppose players don't know this. I have a rotating group of players, and for many of them it will ...

The "upload worm" bot glitch card seems like a good template for this. Will we be able to buy blank print-on-demand bot glitch cards?

AugMem (GM Thread)

Have any of you GMs done anything interesting with AugMem limits? It looks like something that at least one of my players will pour his XP Points into in order to gain more, but there doesn't seem to be any actual benefit. Depending on which resource you read, AugMem seems to only be available if yo...

Have there been any videos of the new rules set posted? I've searched but have only found old-rules games.
