Citizen! Your friend The Computer has authorized the re-cloning of our March 2016 PARANOIA Classic Bundle, a commendation-worthy revival featuring the First (1984) and Second (1987) Editions from West End Games of PARANOIA, the satirical science-fiction tabletop roleplaying game of a darkly humorous future. Previously available only in pirated versions of varying quality, these DRM-free, non-watermarked image scans, created for this offer's original run and approved by the game's original designers, are the books that made PARANOIA great.

This collection includes some of -- actually, most of -- the funniest writing in the history of roleplaying. For just US$17.95 you get all six titles in our RED-Clearance Collection (retail value $35) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

  • PARANOIA First Edition (1984): The original three-book set, including the complete Player, Gamemaster, and Adventure Handbooks, about Troubleshooters in a future underground city in service to an insane Computer.
  • Gamemaster Screen and Adventures for First Edition: The 16-page insert booklet includes the classic introductory adventures "Robot Imana 665-C," "The Trouble with Cockroaches," and "Das Bot."
  • Orcbusters: Ken Rolston’s much-loved 1986 sendup of fantasy RPGs.
  • Clones in Space: The late Erick Wujcik (Amber Diceless Roleplaying) wrote this space-operatic exercise in explosive decompression.
  • Vapors Don't Shoot Back: The first full-length PARANOIA mission (1985), written by Curtis Smith (with Geoff Valley), sends the Troubleshooters into a covert contest between rival High Programmers.
  • Form Pack: Three forms (the Equipment Request Form, Equipment Complaint Form, and Form Request Form) and a three-page "Code 7" bureaucratic-runaround mini-adventure guaranteed to make new RED-Clearance Troubleshoooters use all the forms.

And if you pay more than the threshold price of $27.53, you'll rise in clearance and also get our entire ULTRAVIOLET-Clearance Collection with eight more titles worth an additional $45:

  • PARANOIA Second Edition (1987): The complete 128-page rulebook and the 16-page supplement The Compleat Troubleshooter (the one with the Mandatory Bonus Duties).
  • Acute Paranoia: The First-Edition rules supplement with longtime fans' best-loved adventure, "Me and My Shadow Mark IV." ("Something falls off.")
  • The YELLOW Clearance Black Box Blues: A virtuoso 1985 work by the late World Fantasy Award- winning author John M. "Mike" Ford. One of the most highly regarded scenarios in roleplaying history.
  • Send in the Clones: The one with the Funbot.
  • HIL Sector Blues: Ken Rolston's sprawling high-clearance Internal Security campaign supplement/mission/thingy.
  • The People's Glorious Revolutionary Adventure: Comrades! Now to be visiting Comrade Edward Bolme's Alpha State, glorious Communist Controlled Complex Population (CCCP) ruled by Tovarich Computer where every comrade is being RED Clearance. Is nyet true some comrades are more RED than others.
  • Alpha Complexities: Edward Bolme's 1988 extravaganza of invisible Commies, bloodthirsty scrubots, and the return of the Mark IV warbot.
  • Excessory Pack: The Second Edition GM Screen plus forms, a character sheet, and Cardstock Commies.
