The room is silent, except for someone whispering. yes, pming people is perfectly legal, in a tabletop game you're allowed to pass notes provided you'd be able to do so physically in the game (via a communicator or whispering).

Re: ITT we play Paranoia [GAME IN PROGRESS]


The laser body appears to be a weapon of the sort carried by other troubleshooters you have seen. It has no barrel which you presume means it is unlikely to fire very well.

the PDC is a screen with buttons that could strap to your wrist. Currently it is displaying the symbol of the computer.
