Re: Alternate Alpha Complexes - A website

Here's some more updates to Alternate Alpha Complexes... - Time Tunnel - Vatman22 Complex - How To Create Your Own Complex/Setting I think that last link may be super-important. Obviously, Alternate Alpha Complexes cannot be a complete documentation of every single complex ever made by fans or Famou...

Re: Arguments against Clone Immortality

I assumed the new clone is no longer considered guilty of a treason committed by the previous clone, if the previous clone was already punished for that treason (since the new clone would remember the punishment and thus will be deterred from future treason). For example, this is how the scenario no...

Arguments against Clone Immortality

This dialog , written by Stanislaw Lem, is essentially an argument against the possibility of "clone immortality" (the idea that you can essentially 'live forever' by cloning yourself and your memories). Clone immortality tends to be used in games like PARANOIA and Eclipse Phase, so it's interestin...

Re: Why is Paranoia so great?

+1 from me. I like the fact that you mentioned the "satire and dark humor", as that's probably the biggest selling point for PARANOIA (at least in my opinion). And because the game is so flexible (and the GM is always right), it's very easy to drop in new mechanics and fluff into the game, to satiri...

Re: Alternate Alpha Complexes - A website

Recently updated the site to include information on the Mezcalinzan complex and the elusive "Spy For Another Alpha Complex" secret society . Probably will no longer be updating the site, due to me no longer playing PARANOIA. But it might still be useful for you. When writing this site I gave links t...

Re: Any plans for a reprint/rerelease?

(anyone remember how glorious the first relaunch was, with a supplement nearly every month?) Yet the supplements were eventually canned most people preferred missions instead. Hence why the second relaunch focused mostly on releasing missions (with all fluff stuffed within the main rulebook). And f...

Re: Alternate Alpha Complexes - A website

Considering how 1st Edition and Internal Security * both agree with Iron Domokun, and that it is a way to easily generate an Alpha Complex, I really should add that "complex" onto the website. It is, after all, just as "legitimate" as the other complexes on that site. However, Iron Domokun, the publ...

Re: Alpha Complex - The Map

1st Edition has a map of CBI sector, which was used in the pre-generated mission creatively titled Destination: CBI Sector . I like the idea of using this map as a template of all Alpha Complex sectors. http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/8334/mapxh.png The map doesn't really add a whole lot of detai...

Alternate Alpha Complexes - A website

Alright then, I hope what I am doing is allowed and tolerated, because I'm still a little hesitant. There has been hints of other Alpha Complexes existing outside of the Alpha Complex the players are in. This serves as a useful mission hook for players, as well as the basis for the mysterious "Spy f...

Re: Flashbacks Redux

They will thus spend most of their time and new “power” trying to not have the adventure run its intended course. And that's alright. Once the players get to a position of power where there are completely responsible for the [CENSORED] project and know they are in a hosejob, I'd be perfectly fine i...

It's a good point-and-click PARANOIA adventure game. The developer, Adam-R-LON-1, may be working on a sequel, though it could fail. Even so, this is a fun game that I hope you guys tried out. I'm suprised it has not been posted here before...

I like to do that all the time. :)

But in fairness, if you want to learn all the subfactions and splinter cells of the society, buy The Traitor's Manual. It has a lot of details about the 16 main socieites, details you may use when crafting your own society.

If I invent a society, it's only for a one-shot deal, to further a campagin or a mission. Once that is done, I throw it away.

More likely, I make subgroups of the main societies in general. Basically groups that are spilnters and believe in ideas that the main society would not accept.

Hm...if one takes a liberal interpertion of the backstory of PARANOIA, Alpha Prime could be the Great Brain...lots of Alpha Complexes were made pre-Oops...but once the world ended, each Alpha Complex accuses all the other Alpha Complexes of treason, hence fracturing the Federation and creating today.
