Just a quick update r.e. the Paranoia XP dev blog: some of the bits posted thus far make the game sound like it’s heading in a somewhat rules-heavier direction than fans of the old game are used to. I think this is actually just an optical illusion; what it is, is the world’s getting heavier. This extra poundage will apparently be optional, but it’s obvious where the designers’ hearts lie. Certain things give me hope, though, like this quick borrowing from Baron Munchausen.
