Note: Quelmar's Alpha Complex highly resembles the stock Alpha Complex of the Paranoia RPG, with very few alterations. For specifics on how to run Quelmar's Alpha Complex, see GM: Paranoia

Alpha Complex is the name of the final (of many) ███ to inhabit the ███ of ███.

About[edit | edit source]

Alpha Complex is controlled by The Computer (Though it is anyone's guess WHICH Computer)

Everyone in the Alpha Complex has a Security Clearance which ranges from Infrared to Ultraviolet.

Clearance
Infrared
Red
Orange
Yellow
Green
Blue
Indigo
Violet
Ultraviolet

Ultraviolet Citizens were also known as "High Programmers".

Alpha Complex is clear of any communists, mutants, or traitors. This spotless reputation is thanks to the many servants of the Computer known as Troubleshooters

Citizens of the Alpha Complex are given access to "PDC"s, the equivalent of iPhones, but obnoxiously built, like the worst version of a Blackberry PDA.

The local police force of Alpha Complex was known as IntSec (Internal Security). Another less successful and more wild group of "law keepres" were known as Troubleshooters.

It is always year 2468 in Alpha Complex.

Citizens were grown in vats and decanted upon rapid growth. Upon death, a clone of the dead citizen was decanted to resume the previous citizen's work in the utopia.

Note: The Alpha Complex Was Designated for use with HDR Color Space Only. Usage of other colorspaces distorts the true nature of the city and is considered Treason. Treason is punishable by summary execution.

Areas of Alpha Complex[edit | edit source]

The Productions, Logistics, and Commissary (or PLC) was a brutally complex series of beureucratic pipelines that citizens of the complex are often required to defer to when requesting information from the Computer or from higher clearance citizens.

The average wait for information from the PLC is 15 years.

The Clearance Reassignment Department (Known as CRD or Creed) was in charge of demoting or promoting citizens who have to quickly undergo an radical change in lifestyle.

Troubleshooter HQ was the area of the complex where troubleshooters would gather to receive their missions, at least at one point in time. Frequent high level overturns and firings of traitors among the troubleshooter ranks mean that the method in which Troubleshooters reported to HQ changed constantly, almost never being the same.

Sectors[edit | edit source]

  • BUD Sector
  • DON Sector
    • Location of "Patch Job" in the Get Submodule campaign. Home to at least one subway station.
  • TLC Sector
    • Notorious for being where all the Scrubs are (and many people who do not want them there)
  • PLC Sector
    • Home to a real jerk of a red R&D supplier named Tom

    • Home to Mabel-B, a matronly blue citizen who Hendrix loves to lick.

Non Sectors[edit | edit source]

  • The Sewers
    • A region deep under Alpha Complex which empties out into the nearby sinking ocean. Contains at least one way to sneak out of the alpha complex. Also contains a labyrinth.
    • Contains at least 1 rat.
    • Contained "The Chamber of Secrets" according to Cinnabon. In fact an airtight sewage chamber that flooded and trapped and killed anyone foolish enough to step into it.

Troubleshooting[edit | edit source]

"Troubleshooting is like volunteer firefighting, just not voluntary and with more firefights"

Troubleshooting was the prestigious job done by the most loyal workers of Friend Computer, whose job was to search out everyone who was a commie, a mutant, or a traitor.

"Mike-U-5" was the first Trouble Shooter according to the large statues and plaques built in his honor.
