Paranoia - Crash Course Manual

From the back cover:

"The Computer is Dead! Long Live...Anybody?

The Computer has accessed its last microchip; merged its last datafile; blown its last circuit. it doesn't matter why. It doesn't matter how. What matters is what the clones of Alpha Complex are gonna do about it now.

Post MegaWhoops Alpha Complex: dark Computer monitors, corridors dimly illuminated by emergency power, Tech Service, and Power Service personnel struggling valiantly to...do something. Anything. Meanwhile, clones rise up and destroy CPU HQ, while Secret Societies come out of hiding and start taking control. Alpha Simplexes spring up and declare their independence from the rest of the Complex. Somewhere, rumor has it, there are vast stockpiles of supplies, and maybe even a sector where The Computer still works. Mercenary Troubleshooter teams are hired to find out the truth..THIS IS POST-CRASH PARANOIA!

Crash Course Manual contains:
* 96 pages of gloom, doom, and dark designs -- not to mention more info about MegaWhoops Alpha than anyone could ever want to know!
* Paranoid fiction that will knock your jumpsuit off -- nearly 40 pages of stories and songs about everything from the "Moment of MegaWhoops" and "Tales From the Vulgar Scrubot" to "The New Fear and Ignorance."
* Capsule adventures, capsule adventures, and more capsule adventures - and a modestly brilliant mini-adventure, "A passage to NDA Sector" - to get you started in the Post-Crash Complex!
* The most treasonous document ever printed in any Paranoia adventure or supplement (no, really, we mean it this time). At last, "101 uses for The Dead Computer" can be revealed to the public!"

Paranoia - Clones In Space

From the back of the book:

"Space-the final frontier. These are the voyages of some unenterprising Troubleshooters, their mission: to seek out strange new life, new civilizations ...and terminate them...to boldly go where no clone has any business going.

Welcome once again to the darkly humorous world of PARANOIA. Instead of the daily humdrum life-or-death routine of Alpha Complex, in this adventure the Troubleshooters get to do something really exciting-explore Outer Space (Where the ceiling would be if the Outside had one).

These eager Troubleshooters get to enjoy the exciting, slightly gut-squashing effects of lift-off. The survivors get a lesson in weightlessness and a lucky few learn about the curious effects of hard vacuum. So much fun hardly seems fair.

All this leads to a question-What do you get when you mix together:

• Deranged computers in space stations (no relation to a 2001-year-old science fiction flick)
• Ravenous flesh-eating aliens
• Sneezes in zero-G
• Some low-budget special effects
• Really impressive extraterrestrials (out to conquer Earth, of course)
• And no less than 36 clones? Answer: A disgustingly fun mess!"
