Paranoia RED Clearance (the new one)

by Monday 24 June 2019
Mission alert! In June 2019 your friend The Computer presented the Paranoia RED Clearance Bundle, featuring the new card-based 2016 edition of the classic satirical SFRPG of a darkly humorous future, Paranoia from Mongoose Publishing. In the future underground city of Alpha Complex, Troubleshooters in service to The Computer search for and terminate traitors, including mutants, terrorists, [CLASSIFIED], secret societies, renegade bots, and DAIVs, which are [REDACTED]. Troubleshooters are there to save Alpha Complex from its greatest threats, unless they accidentally become its greatest threats.

By far the most popular comedic RPG in tabletop gaming for 35 years, Paranoia has had several editions. Past Bundle offers presented the 2004 “XP” version from Mongoose (June 2014) and, in March 2016, the original 1980s West End Games adventures that made Paranoia great. This offer presents the new, streamlined RED Clearance Edition rulebooks, forms, play aids, and several adventures, including the updated YELLOW Clearance Black Box Blues, widely considered the funniest RPG scenario ever.

Funded in a tremendous October 2014 Kickstarter campaign, the revamped Paranoia RED Clearance Edition has all-new rules, many devious setting updates, and enhanced backstabbing techniques to test on your fellow Troubleshooters. Everything is different, but everything is still perfect. Your friend The Computer says so.

There were three titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $51) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete Paranoia RED Clearance Edition (with the Players Guide, Gamemasters Guide, and Mission Book, plus print-and-cut cards) and its new Forms Pack and Interactive GM Screen.

Loyal citizens who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with four more titles worth an additional $67, including the introductory Guide to Alpha Complex, Gareth Hanrahan’s full-length mission Implausible Deniability, Martin Dougherty’s mission Robots of Unusual Size, and John M. Ford’s updated adventure classic The YELLOW Clearance Black Box Blues (Remastered).

Your friend The Computer instructed its loyal servants in Central Processing Unit to assign ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) to this offer’s designated charity, Human Rights Watch.
