[Mongoose] New Releases – RuneQuest II and Paranoia

By on 22 March 2010

There are three new titles winging their way to your local stores from Mongoose this week. Two for Paranoia and one for the brand new RuneQuest II RPG!

Arms & Equipment

An adventurer is only as good as his equipment, so the saying goes – and with this mighty tome, your adventurer will be the best-equipped he can be. From new weapons and armour, to the more mundane items that keep an adventure going, Arms & Equipment is a complete catalogue that will keep players coming back for more after every adventure.

Arms & Equipment, like the rest of the core RuneQuest line, is a luxurious book, with a complete leather-bound cover.

High Programmers

The mandatory enjoyment of Paranoia’s 25th Anniversary continues! With this ultra-high-security book, players can forget the troubles of the little people of Alpha Complex. No more hose jobs as Troubleshooters, no more policing the madness that is Alpha Complex as a Blue Clearance Trooper. No, the life of a High Programmer is one of luxury!

As High Programmers, players will enjoy the fruits of their labours (and those of everyone else) as the pre-eminent leaders of Alpha Complex. There is no way their plans will be scuppered by Alpha Complex’s nightmarish bureaucracy. No way that rival High Programmers will seek to bring about their demise. No way that the citizens below them will revolt. No way that the Computer will find even more insane challenges that cannot possibly be completed.

No way at all. Uh huh.

A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Termination Booth

You’ve got tickets to a termination, and for once, it’s not your own. You’re going to watch noted traitor and enemy collaborator Herman-G fry. It’s the event of the monthcycle, and your seats are so close to the main event you’ll be able to smell the smoking boots. What’s that? A mission alert? You’re being ordered to escort Herman-G to the termination booth? Well, what could possibly go wrong?

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.
