[Mongoose] New Releases: Paranoia and Dragon Warriors

By on 21 January 2010

Two new releases will be hitting your local games stores this week – a new Games Master’s Screen for Paranoia, and a brand new supplement for Dragon Warriors.

Paranoia Games Master’s Screen

No Paranoia Games master should be without his Mandatory Screen. How else can he hide the Computer’s vital secrets, while cackling as the next hose-job is unleashed upon unsuspecting players?

With all the important tables and charts, ready to be ignored, the new Paranoia Games Master’s Screen is constructed from quality heavy-weight cardstock that will stand the ravages of many years’ gaming.


Suitable for use with Troubleshooters, Internal Security and High Programmers.

Friends or Foes
FRIENDS OR FOES describes 36 fascinating characters from all over the world of Dragon Warriors, and interconnects them in a weave of plots and history that can be used to underpin any number of adventures. There are corrupt nobles, weird sorcerers, people cursed by the Fae or tormented by the past, merchants and mercenaries, priests and peasants, and even a selection of notable monsters such as Jasper the Gargoyle and the Silver Stag.

Consider Baron Darcheaux, haunted by the ghost of his dead son; Father Corbin, the man of faith cursed by the lords of the fairies; Rocelin the Minstrel whose songs will chronicle the adventuring deeds of the player-characters; Thomas and William the brewing brothers whose rivalry is almost as potent as their beer; or Tuanku, the beautiful diplomat from the southern isles who appears to have a rusty nail embedded in the back of her neck. All characters have full game-stats and a selection of adventure-seeds to get them involved in the players’ campaign.

The book also contains GM notes on creating hirelings with personalities, and an alamanac of stats for basic NPCs from bandits and town guards to poachers, pilgrims and primitives. No Dragon Warriors game is complete without FRIENDS OR FOES!

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
