Title: TITLE UNAVAILABLE [Paranoia XP or 25th Anniversary: UNDISCLOSED NUMBER Players]
Post by: Kroack on June 08, 2010, 05:39:36 PM
Game Title: Unavailable At Your Clearance Level.

System: Paranoia XP or the Anniversary Edition, they're pretty much the same. You're not supposed to show knowledge of the rules anyways. MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY!
  
Players Wanted: 4-7, more if it will be entertaining.

Posting Rate: LOW POSTING RATE WILL RESULT IN SUMMARY EXECUTION. HAVE A NICE DAY.
 
Special Rules: Disregard service firms, unless you want to be in one. You can pick your mutations and secret societies. Please [spoiler=Ultraviolet Clearance]
If you are viewing these words, please report to the nearest termination booth, or await Internal Security. Would you like some music to listen to?[/spoiler] those two categories when we get to character creation.

Advancement Rules: Hahahahaha. Hahahahaha. hahahahahahahahaa.

CONGRATULATIONS, CITIZEN. WELCOME TO THE BELOVED RANKS OF TROUBLESHOOTER OF ALPHA COMPLEX. YOUR MANDATORY DUTY, IF YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, IS TO HUNT DOWN COMMUNISTS, CAPTURE TRAITORS, AND FIX ALL OF ALPHA COMPLEX'S NONEXISTENT PROBLEMS. BECAUSE THERE ARE NO PROBLEMS, CORRECT, CITIZEN?

WHAT IS THAT CITIZEN? YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOUR SPECIFIC MISSION DETAILS ARE? I'M SORRY, BUT THAT INFORMATION IS ABOVE YOUR SECURITY CLEARANCE. REPEATED INQUIRY IS TREASON. ARE YOU A TRAITOR... CITIZEN?

Welcome to Alpha Complex. A world where up is down and down doesn't know what it is. Alpha Complex is led by an insane piece of hardware known as the Computer. Obsessed with destroying anything that may or may not harm its Utopia, the Computer has promoted you to RED security clearance, handed you a lazer, and sent you on your merry way. Watch your head on the way out. And your arms. And your legs, torso, or internal organs.  

Note- If you don't have either core rulebook, no big deal. Tell me what sort of character you want and I may be generous and create your troubleshoot at your specifications, but don't count on it.

Hello Friend Computer. Did you get the e-mail list of mutant tractors I sent you? That is what we're supposed to be looking for, right?

TRACTORS, CITIZEN? KNOWLEDGE OF MUTANT INFILTRATION IN AGRICULTURE AND BOTANICAL SECTORS IS TREASON!

I kind of want to check out Paranoia, so I may be interested in this, but I also may be playing and running pbp games, so I don't want to overcommit myself...

Join up! Don't take this game too seriously. I'm going for a classic vibe, leaning towards zap and all its assorted craziness.

Doesn't really matter. No matter what book you have, you can play. I'll make characters for anyone who can't.

Cool, I'll have mine up tomorrow. I'm thinking of making a character that is based on Winston Smith (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winston_Smith).

I have the book, but if you could generate a dude for me, that would be amazing.  Otherwise, I'm not sure I'll have one to you in a timely manner.  I am getting ridiculously busy with other PbP games over at NerdBound and real life games.  However, I really want to play Paranoia, especially the insane zap style antics.  I'm in if this gets going.

I've been looking for a pbp game i could get in on without having any books. I'm in. I don't know what type of characters are normal for this, but i had a concept of someone like Kevin Flynn from Tron.

I'm definitely up for playing this I don't have any rules so I'll try and give you an overview of what I want when I get back and you can run with it?

I'm curious how you would run this in PbP? I've played it around a table, ran it infact, finding that the quick pace is what led to zany action.

Okay, it looks like we have at least 4. Maybe 5 or 6 players. I'll PM a mod and get ourselves a permanent child board.

Yeah so I'm just going for a character that values machines over humans and really does not care about his own wellbeing just generally a bit psycho. I'm not really sure of a good way to elaborate on it more than this since it seems like characters in this game just have one exaggerated part of thier personality.

I'd be interested. I know a bit about the setting, but don't have any book or anything.

I'd be willing to play just about any character you throw at me, but I don't have the resources to build one myself... :) Of course, control over my character was never mine, since I have not received clearance to know myself, friend Computer.

If you need another person, i could give it a try.  I never played and dont have the rules so i would welcome you to create a character for me.

UPDATE

I am no longer taking character request. If one of the mods we be so kind as to lock this thread, that would be nice.

Post your character concept in the Paranoia Child Board.
