Paranoia One-Shot: Welcome to Alpha Complex (Part 1)

This week, I cracked open the second hand copy of the second edition of Paranoia that I picked up from Oxfam a few months back.  What followed was an evening of slapstick comedy, general mistrust, outright betrayal and excessive bureaucracy.

The Dresden Files RPG: Session 1

Last night, my group started their first session of The Dresden Files Roleplaying Game.  This was my, and their, first time using the Fate system, and I think it went reasonably well.
