Hi all. I remember someone posting here last year about the idea of a MLwM game set in the Alpha Complex of the Paranoia rpg.

I posted some thoughts on the newly announced Paranoia XP over at The 20' by 20' Room, expressing among other things my hope that the designers would check out some of the cutting edge games coming out of The Forge, and Allan Varney, head writer for the new edition, made this reply:

I'm taking MY LIFE WITH MASTER as one of my principal inspirations for the new rules.

He also said:

Jared Sorenson has kindly made available his complete published works, and I have looked them over with admiration. I also lurk on The Forge, and have downloaded many a free game by Zak Arntson or Jeff Diamond.

Not sure if that's new news to everyone here, but I thought it was pretty swell.

I believe I suggested that, in response to an offhand comment by Jared in this thread.

I have always thought that InSpectres was the way to go for a new edition of Paranoia. Imagine being able to sit back and watch as the players come up with their own hosejob missions. Debriefing "flashbacks" would, of course, be the equivalent of confessional moments...

I like it. :)
