Time Is Running Out | Back Acute Paranoia Today!

The great thing about Kickstarters is they give you fun projects to back. The bad thing? Kickstarters end. If you’re not careful, you could miss out. It’s been almost one month since Acute Paranoia launched as a Kickstarter campaign. We hit our £20,000 goal on the first day, and that total has grown...

Re: Paranoia RCE - contradictory NPC damage rules?

Hey, thank you very much for responding to my ill mannered moan. Having read through the rules, they do just say, "Make stuff up." What happened with my group was, we were playing the introductory mission from the mission book, and we got as far as page 28, when we were introduced to NPC's with ski...

Why is Paranoia so great?

Greetings, citizens! While we both know that 'Paranoia is fun, other games are not-fun, play Paranoia', I wrote a post explaining exactly why Paranoia is so great. What do you think?

Re: Paranoia RCE - contradictory NPC damage rules?

I find this version of the game so depressing. I purchased a game that basically says, "Just make stuff up". I could have done that myself and saved the price of the kickstarter. Sorry to be negative, but I has hoping for a game with a fun setting backed up by some elegant and inventive design. Ins...

Re: Paranoia RCE - contradictory NPC damage rules?

I'm not opposed to the idea of the GM not rolling but I would have found it more helpful if the game included a mechanic for the PCs defending against NPC attacks, so when the Pc act, they roll to attack, and when they are attacked, they roll to defend. It just makes things a little easier for me. ...

Re: Pregenerated Characters

Every one of the pregenerated characters in the Mission Book has five stat points but SIX positive skills. No indications of any Moxie being spent on that extra skill Allen Huh, never noticed that before. (That's because I either make new pregens specifically for a mission or have players go throug...

Re: Is the computer die intended to generate successes & failures?

Does the Computer symbol not count as a 6? For my personal opinion (and not Mongoose's), I use this guideline: If I want that action to succeed, then the computer symbol is a success because it is the 6 on that die. Then I use the Computer to extract a pretty penny for that success. If I want that ...

Re: Paranoia RCE - contradictory NPC damage rules?

So, let's say there is a traitor that a Troubleshooter wants to shoot at. Case 1 (Players book): difficulty level is 1. Player needs 2 successes to hit the target and inflict 1 damage. (This is actually backed up with "breaking stuff" rules) Case 2 (Mission book): traitor's defence is 1. Player nee...

Re: Secret society keyword confusion

1. How can "Free Enterprise" embrace both "diversify" and "progress"? Are they antipathetic to themselves? To nobody? Free Enterprise is all about profit, so they can be dysfunctional like this. Diversify? They want less uniformity so they can build their pyramid schemes and offer exciting new serv...
