http://www.costik.com/paranoia/News 2/19/2004: I'm pleased to take part in the relaunch of the classic tabletop roleplaying game Paranoia, a satiric science fiction setting designed by Greg Costikyan, Eric Goldberg, and Dan Gelber, and originally published by West End Games in 1984. After many years, Eric and Greg have secured the Paranoia rights and have licensed Mongoose Publishing (Swindon, UK) to publish a new edition, tentatively titled Paranoia XP. I will write much of the main rulebook under Greg's direction, with substantial contributions from my good friend, bestselling novelist and game designer Aaron Allston. We plan to make Alpha Complex even more pertinent and darkly humorous.
I'm excited to return to Paranoia, one of my favorite games. I wrote an early adventure, Send in the Clones (collaborating with my old boss at Steve Jackson Games, Warren Spector), as well as smaller contributions to several other supplements. You can track the new edition's development on Greg Costikyan's new Paranoia XP blog. For more background, check the fine Paranoia-Live fan site.
