First run question

Postby Phyxius » Wed Dec 09, 2009 4:06 pm

Hello all,

I am looking to start running XP sessions monthly. No one involved has played before. I was going to start with Mr. Bubbles, but was wondering if My First Treason would be better?

I have ready Mr. Bubbles, but not My First Treason. Which would be better for a first run?

Thank you,

Jonathan

My First Treason is named because the player characters are Junior Citizens, rather than because it's a good starter adventure. It's got a fair few differences to a regular Paranoia adventure because of this, so it's not a very good starter! Mister Bubbles is pretty good as a primer.

"Mister Bubbles" is a pretty good first choice. The first Flashbacks mission collection has some good alternatives, such as "Robot Imana-665-C" (also presented in the new Troubleshotoers rulebook) and the introductory orientation "Pre-PARANOIA."

The official PARANOIA development blog has, in its right sidebar, a helpful list of links under the title "Advice on running PARANOIA."
