View Full Version : Paranoia over voice chat

2011-03-21, 05:05 PM
I suddenly got the idea to try to introduce Paranoia to my Skype-based DnD group, but since I've never GM ANYTHING before, I instantly went online looking for tips.

I read a few threads on this forum about it, which were certainly helpful. I've only played Paranoia (Zap-style, which is what I want to play with my group now) via IRC chat, which worked pretty well I think. The tips I read online though often assumed the group was playing in real life.

Are there any specific tips for running a game via voice chat? I know I could "pass notes" via individual PMs, but any other advice would be helpful. Thanks.

Buy/download a voice synthesizer to speak through when acting in the role of Friend Computer.

Randomly cut out your Skype at appropriate times. Leave them scrambling in the dark for a little bit, whilst you make them incredibly paranoid. If your group is down for that.
