  • The best gaming advice: Talk to each other like reasonable adults.
  • Dice fudging is bullshit.
  • Ignoring rules is a sign that you're playing the wrong game.
  • Rather than hack on the rules of a game, stop to consider that a different game might better do what you want.
  • Rule Zero is bullshit.
  • System matters.

Brevity is characteristic of okeefe's answers. … It's a complete solution to the problem, in a small package. —SevenSidedDie

@Zibbobz A quick "What are you, stupid?" from the GM works wonders for this kind of situation.

comment How does the GM effectively help players find Traits?
Is this primarily about picking traits as part of character burning, or do you mean in general?

comment How can I create a Prisoner's Dilemma-style choice in Paranoia?
Sure, misdirect. Paranoia only works (for me) in small bursts anyway, so it's only going to be a couple of sessions at most.
