Is the Traitor's manual out of print?

Postby olsen667 » Tue Dec 09, 2008 3:43 pm

I'm having quite a hard time obtaining a copy of the traitor's manual, and after seeing it is no longer listed on your product page, i imagine it's probably out of print?
if so, will there be a reprint?

You can still buy PDF copies of The Traitor Manual from DriveThruRPG or RPGNow. Alternatively, rooting around your Local Game Store might reveal a first- (or second-) hand copy. Failing that, perhaps an online auction site?

I am afraid the Traitor's Manual has been successfully purged by the agents of Alpha Complex (it has sold out and will not be reprinted). You will still find electronic copies on Drivethru for the foreseeable future.

Would Mongoose ever consider offering a print on demand service, on a pay per copy basis? Or does the setup make that unlikely?

You said in the State of the Mongoose the "attach rate" for Paranoia supplements is quite low, which I guess explains the decision not to reprint... but if there is a possibility of single PoD copies, passing the entire inflated cost onto the buyer, would Mongoose go for it?

Are there any other Paranoia books that are OOP?

It would appear to be Games Master's Screen, Crash Priority and The Mutant Experience, all still available in PDF format.

Here, you know what might work: if the forthcoming 25th Anniversary edition of the core book could incorporate the expanded secret society and mutant power rules from The Traitor's Manual and The Mutant Experience...
