Paranoia Conversion to Basic Roleplaying – Skills

I’ve looked at the skills in several different ways:

  1. Skills that easily translate over from Paranoia to Basic Roleplaying.
  2. Skills that translate with a little adjustment.
  3. Weapon/Combat Skills.
  4. Treasonous Skills.
  5. Basic Roleplaying skills that don’t exist in Paranoia (more…)

Paranoia Conversion to Basic Roleplaying – Introduction

Paranoia 2nd Edition CoverI’ve always wanted to run a Paranoia campaign. I have the second edition, but found that the preconceptions around the system and setting have worked against anything other than one-off games. Basically the players are so keyed up to kill each other off that we don’t get to explore any of the slow building treachery, bureaucratic nightmares, successful treasonous plots and all that fun stuff.
