Unless I am missing something it seems that every action we take results in a clone dead or injured.  Is that just part of how the game runs or are we just doing a really bad job of role play / judgment?  New to this system so trying to get a feel for how it goes.

death and taxes!

This is a relatively peaceful and cooperative adventure, so far, compared to some of the Paranoia we played way back when!

Caution and rationality are not synonomous with loyalty.

Bud is very correct.  Some of the best Paranoia adventures end with everyone dying before the mission truly begins. 

I'd say that this one is super par for the course. 

Paranoia is not lot most RPGs.  In most games, you work together to achieve things. In Paranoia, everyone is looking out for everyone else to backstab them, plus Friend Coomputer is capricious and usually gives you bad equipment, incomplete/inaccurate intel, experiemntal equipment that is frequently fatal, etc.  Add in that one of the biggest written rules in the book leads the GM to kill players who bore them... and you get a high kill count.

Note that I have wanred you guys multiple times already! 

This is one reason that you have a six pack of clones - to make death not sting so much.

Fantastic!

Brighte 2 volunteering to be a step stool has me dying of laughter! Awesome play, Keeper!

P.S. Hoping to have a post for our clueless leader up shortly.

No doubt!  So loved Brighte-2 just stepping righ tback into the situation. 

As an FYI, Slipp is now considered to be Incapacitated (wounded x2).  You'll have to carry or drag him along to seek actual medical attention.

Uh-oh! Got Ammpe's post in after the explosion of Slipp's weapon... Should have refreshed the page before posting, I guess... I'll shoot for another short post in a bit to address these latest developments.

Blowzs is on the job

It took me a bit longer then I had hoped to get caught up on the reading and figure out where you clones had gone.  However, thanks to the wonderful efficiency of the computer and a solid meal of soylent green and vodka, Blowz2 is now up and running.  Well, not so much running as it is dark.  But up and whispering.  And hopefully soon doing the conga.  

Don't worry folks, Blowz is on the job!  What could possibly go wrong?
