Well I finally got this and all I can say is WOW!!! Great job and cannot wait to toss my players into the mix. Mind you my players are very keen on the Slaine' game I am about to run so hopefully I can use this as a filler game when everyone cannot make it.
Paranoia XP makes citizens happy, being happy is mandatory, pick your copy up today at your local Game shop, if they do not have a copy, tell them to get several copys, cause it makes people happy, and people who are not happy are traitors, DON"T BE A TRAITOR!
Everyone has a mutant power, everyone is a member of a secret society, everyone is a Traitor! Well, everyone but you! It's your job to prove it to Friend Computer!
Through the good graces of my friend The Computer and the excellent Alpha Complex postal system, I expect to hold Paranoia XP and the GM screen in my quivering appendages later today. This will be fun! All hail The Computer! 8)
(Side note...we could really use some Paranoia-oriented emoticons...)
This is good stuff. The new bits (service firms, psuedo-capitalism) are going to take some getting used to, but I really appreciate the extra details on how Alpha Complex "works." I also have to admit [editorial subtext mode] that, despite the comparisons to China or Singapore, Paranoia XP does a great job satirizing the current state of the American political economy.[/editorial subtext mode]
