Glad you took it in the proper spirit.

I'd love to have you in the game, but I do have standby players if you decide that you don't want to continue.

Pyroboom - please do not post in the game thread until I introduce your new clone. Thanks.

I'm not going to fry clones for a day or two with no posts - especially around a holiday. It's the "entire week with no posting while the party is in the middle of combat" that will get you cooked.

Subject: sigh


I warned you, did I not?

Congratulations, ladies and gentlemen - we have our first clone death on page two of the game thread!

Paranoia is a deadly game. Sometimes, you will die through no fault of your own. Sometimes, the capricious GM will allow Alpha Complex to kill you because he is a jerk.

This is not one of those times. At least, not fully.

If you do not post, and do not touch base with me, you risk clone death. If you log in to the site, please take a moment to post - or send me a one line PM telling me that you can't. If you are online and do neither of these, I get irked, and the blood of your clones is now fully on your hands.

I have had one player let me know that they are not sure if Paranoia is their cup of tea. Hey, no problem - it's not for everybody. If you don't care for it, please just let me know and I'll recruit a replacement player... no hard feelings.

Not posting or talking to me, on the other hand, is kind of rude.


Now, if you have been killed - but still want to play - do not despair. You get six lives in this game. Unless told otherwise, your new clone will have all of the same traits as your last clone - just on number higher on their name. That's it.

If you died, please allow me to reintroduce your character before you post to the game thread (but feel free to post here).

Subject: Keeping it real (deadly)


The firing laser cannon causes most of the team to take at least some sort of action, be that of running, dodging, heroically assisting others, or simply trying to stop the shooting.

Others, however, react far more sluggishly, as if the laser cannon were apparently a decoration, or, at worst, a distraction.

It is a given in Alpha Complex society that efficiency is something to be sought in all areas of life; waste - whether in resources, time, or effort - is something to be avoided. To do otherwise is treason.

As a result, modern targeting systems are a veritible model of efficiency. Consider, if you will, this yellow laser defense turret.

Presented with multiple threats, the targeting logic first elects to distribute the shots so as to distribute the damage and weaken the resolve of the attacking group. However, when a wonderful target of opportunity presents itself - in this case, two clones that seem unconcerned with the severity of the situation - the algorhythm takes advantage of their positioning and lack of urgency to line up an extremely efficient shot.

The cannon swivels, hums, and fires again; this time, the shot will surely be analyzed (and lauded) by R&D. The beam penetrates the left side of Ammpe-R-AGE's head, exits the right side... whereupon it continues, largely unimpeded, to enter the chest cavity of Brighte-R-NNU (who is apparently either in shock at her flesh wound, or is unable to handle the situation).

The two clones immediately collpase to the floor, perform variable amounts of twitching, then lie still. One shot, two kills.

Meanwhile, Slipp and Blowz are able to assist Artie to his feet, and the four remaining clones escape through the doorway into what appears to be a relatively safe corridor marked "SWR Sector".

As you pause to catch your breath and assess the situation, Friend Computer's voice chimes from a crackly speaker somewhere in the ceiling.
"Attention, Troubleshooter team MAO-17859 Dot R-2. Records indicate that your team has sustained regrettable casualties. Mission success relies upon a full strength team; please stand by as replacement clones are activated and dispatched to your location.

Have an enjoyable day in Alpha Complex."

The speaker falls silent.

In body bags, I presume... unless one of you does a particularly nice job and is vaporized...

It's Friday, folks. I know that I posted twice already, so for those of you who have posted already this week, I won't have you shot yet (though I'd love it if you could post).

I understand why PrincessAli hasn't posted, though she needs to do so soon.

For the rest of you... if you haven't posted anything at all, you run the risk of having a ventilated clone. Just sayin.

Subject: fast and furious combat...


The laser cannon hums cheerfully as it draws a bead on Brighte. The small woman tries to move away, and instinctively throws her left arm up to guard her face...

...bad move. The yellow beam burns a hole through not only the reflec armor, but through skin, flesh, and bone.

Also through flesh, skin, and reflec amor on the exit side. Plus a little hair as the beam just misses Brighte's face.

The process is horribly painful, but this beam was fairly narrow, and quite hot; the wound is cauterized as it is inflicted, and appears to have missed everything vital. Pain and a neato hole are the only real consequences (at this time).

Meawhile, Blowz bellows about turning the canon off. His fuzzy red has is tossed onto the controls, whereupon the communications officer mashes both buttons (cleverly avoiding directly touching the treasonous yellow button).

Pressing the yellow button causes the security door to whoosh open. Sadly, neither button press appears to affect the defense system; the laser cannon continues to hum as it swivels for its next target.

Actions?

Subject: the red button?


With Artie's approving nod, Steam confidently presses the red button on the console. As soon as he does, a slight humming sound can be perceived - but the door does not slide open. Instead, a computerized feminine voice speaks.
"At your service, citizen. Automatic defense system activated."

The hum immediately grows louder, and the laser cannon rotates towards the team and begins firing!

Artie is the unlucky clone chosen to be the first target - the yellow laser completely ignores his red reflec armor, and the blast knocks him to the ground. The team leader now lies, stunned, on the ground.

The cannon then rotates a bit as it pulls a bead on the next troubleshooter.


Actions?

Topic: Greetings, Salutation, Hola!
Subject: permission?


Psh.

Audalis is there for everyone's enjoyment. There is canon material for your use, but if you want to change things up... you are the DM, it's your world!

Example: I run games where the gods are unapproachable cosmic forces. I hate it when mortals kill off gods, assume their powers, etc... one of our staff members, on the other hand, ran a game where the party did kill off Audalisian gods, eventually ended all magic in the world. He and his players had a great time.

Isn't that the point?

Note that more than a little of the current canon material has come from regular DMs and players - they fill in the gaps for their own game, and if it fits the setting, it can become "official" info.


Your Forgotten Relams game probably looks different than mine. My Audalis game may be different from yours. We are all correct.

Enjoy!

Time for you guys to post.

Note that many of the MBD roles include special equipment. This equipment will be assigned along with the rest of your standard issue gear - so don't try to use it yet, since you don't have it.

For example, the Happiness officer will not yet be able to administer mood altering drugs; he needs to receive his supply first.

Subject: moving out...


With lunch forgotten, you leave the cafeteria into a red corridor, feeling what seems like hundreds of eyes boring into your back. A last glance over your shoulder reveals the mournful face of Dweebs, who apparently has the sense to stop trying to force humself on your team.

Turning left, you see a large red blast door on the side of the corridor. It is labeled "SWR Sector". Next to it is a small panel with a speaker and a black button.

Pushing the button has no immediate effect, though after a delay, a computerized voice politely asks for your team number, which Artie is able to provide - down to the "dot R-two".

After you proceed through the blast door, it closes behind the team, and you find yourselves in a small room similar to an airlock, with a yellow laser cannon on the ceiling and another large blast door in front of you. This door has a small sign with two buttons on the right of it. The sign says "SWR SECTOR. To activate automatic defense system and to open access door, use controls below."

Below the sign are two buttons - a red one on the left, and a yellow button on the right.
