Pre-Paranoia Question

Postby Phyxius » Tue Jun 19, 2012 4:08 pm

I am planning to run Pre-Paranoia and have a quick question on the characters. Is there any drawback to using Pre-gen characters from Mr Bubbles instead of making my own characters?

Thanks!

I believe some of the "Mister Bubbles" character backgrounds include prior experience as Troubleshooters, but I don't have the text at hand. Just ask your players -- rather, imperiously order them -- to ignore any reference to prior experience.

Thank you! I went back to the XP version of Flashbacks and found the prep page. The Redux version did not include that. Now I have everything in place.

Thanks!!!
