Flashbacks and Stuff...

Postby Danforth » Tue Oct 20, 2009 3:00 pm

This has come up in one or two other threads, but with no reply, so thought I'd try to start a new one. (Also, it's been quiet in here of late... guess we're waiting on the brand new rulebooks... since the Troubleshooter one was mostly existing material)

Flashbacks 1 & 2 and Stuff 1 & 2 were the only titles not included on the CD-ROM that came with Troubleshooters: Black Missions. Any specific reason for their exclusion?

For Flashbacks, I might guess that Matt & Mongoose feel their own, established Paranoia line doesn't need updates of West End Games material front and centre anymore. And the Stuff volumes, being equipment books, by their very nature might make detailed rules/stat references, the sort of thing that might be less compatible with the new edition when compared to, say, missions. But I don't know for sure and haven't seen or heard any details.

The PDFs are still available, of course, so this isn't really a complaint ("Grrr! Mongoose only gave me fifteen free supplements with Black Missions! I wanted more!!") - I'm just curious.

Also missing were:

XP edition of the rulebook
Little Red Book
Mandatory Bonus Fun Card Game
Citizen's Guide to Surviving Alpha Complex

But it's just the completionist in me that keeps track of things like that

:D
