Paranoia (2017) Group Character Generation Question
Just want to be clear about something. Each round, each player picks a skill and it goes up for them and down for the next player in the order. The rules say that you can't modify one of your skills that are already set, and that the group can only choose each skill once per round. This goes on for five rounds, and the game claims that everyone should have five positive skills and five negative.
But it seems someone can choose a skill that will penalize the next player in a category they've already selected. This contradicts step 5, which claims everyone should have five positive and five negative, and isn't explicitly permitted or explained by any part of the rules. So what happens?
Player 2 takes Guns +1
Next round, Player 1 takes Guns +2, causing Player 2 to get Guns -2.
Should the rules say that Player 1 can't take Guns +2, because Player 2 is already set? Does player 2 get Guns -2? Or maybe a sum of Guns +1 - 2 = -1?
