From publisher blurb:
The PARANOIA rulebook, introducing players old and new to the world of Alpha Complex in a new guise, has revived the classic game setting. For the average player, however, it holds information that may prove dangerous for their characters (such as how the rules, Alpha Complex, and The Computer actually work).
Friend Computer, in its benevolence, has launched this new initiative, providing a slimmed down version that holds all the information a player needs to know in order to play the game, with as much background as a player needs plus the rules for character creation. The Games Master will still need the main rulebook, however the Little RED Book is all his players require, and they can now get on with the fun of actually playing the game rather than treasonously grumbling about the rules and then getting executed.
All hail friend Computer!
