Robots of Unusual Size

26 likes

The first brand new Paranoia mission outside of the new box set is now available on Drivethru. We are proud to present: Robots of Unusual Size!

You can grab your own copy right HERE.

Contained within this document you will find an exciting(ish) mission for a group of RED clearance Troubleshooters. In their loyal service to the Computer they will venture Outside Alpha Complex (!!!) aboard a Robot of Unusual Size. They will encounter Treason, Self-Interest and Buttercups, all of which are bad. They will of course deal with these threats to Our Way of Life in the regulation manner. Not knowing the regulations for dealing with buttercups is of course treason. Thank you for your cooperation.

      I returned to work after easter to find the box on my desk waiting for me (I haven't opened it yet - computer says no) I shall look forward to exploring the details this evening!

      Volker: Not gone to print yet will be following as soon as they are done!

      I just noted that Ultraviolent and YCBBB were not included in my shipment. Will they arrive later or were they forgotten?

      Andrew: We are looking into another run of Computer Dice.

      Stephen: Should be with you next week!

      So I think I'm in need of additional computer dice. I want my players to all have one. To play with it. To roll it when they aren't doing anything. To accidentally summon the computer while fiddling around bored. But I don't see any way to order more on Mongoose's site! I even tore open my copy of the Ghostbusters RPG and discovered that they replaced the 1 with the ghost symbol, not the 6. How can I give you more money?

      I'll be sure to check this out... IF YOU EVER SEND ME THE PRODUCT.

      I have purchased this and a quick look through leaves me quite impressed, yeah it would have been nice to get it for free as a reward for having to wait for so long, but you know what, its worth paying for.

      And @Art, there are only a couple of backers with quality concerns, I think you are mistaking the fact that you backed the directors commentary as meaning you would get a boxset worth £75, sorry dude but the boxset was worth £30, and thats before the £ crashed after Brexit.

      You have to look at it as if you paid £30 for it, and if you do that then I think youi would have to agree that its pretty good.

      Personally my only gripe from what I have seen is the dice, they were pretty poor, and the quality of the GM screen, but the content of the game is well worth it.

      @Matthew Sprange - Shhh.... just take my money already ;)

      Art, a kickstarter backer is not an investor in any sense of the term. You are a customer who simply preordered a product.

      That said, news about an updated PDF that fixes some of the issues would be nice. Many of them are just editorial in nature, but there is that while DAIV thing as well. I'm sure it's in the works, but is there an ETA of any sort?

      Chris: Actually, this mission was a completely new commission, done after everything else was complete (also a new writer for Paranoia, M J Dougherty - a name that will be readily recognisable by any Traveller fans).

      However, the thought of giving you guys a further (free) treat has already crossed our minds :) It won't be this adventure, but please know we are mulling it over.

    14. Chris Fernitz on

      For as long as it took to get the product, I feel backers should be getting this for free! Especially, since this was probably being written and proofed with the core set! My 2 cents!

    15. Matthew Sprange 8-time creator on

      Volker: Potentially, it could be compiled into a book later down the road, but the current plan is for this type of mission to be PDF only.

      @volker, according to the release schedule (linked bellow), the mission will only be in pdf.

      Will there be a print version down the road or will this be fluidware only?

    18. Art Steventon on

      When will you address the quality concerns raised by several backs already?

      Or is this now where you start ignoring your investors as, as far as your bothered, you've 'delivered'?

      David: I am afraid this one is not part of the Kickstarter.

      Do we need to pay extra for the new mission, or will backers receive it for free?

    21. Kaarchin on

      Wait!
      I received my box yesterday. I'm not ready yet.
      And it's Princess Bride's themed!
