Sector Zero

Watermarked PDF

For use with the Paranoia roleplaying game.

Just as ‘Code 7’ is Troubleshooter dispatchers’ jargon for a mission that promises certain death, so ‘Sector Zero’ is Alpha Complex slang for punishment duty. Troubleshooters ‘sent to Sector Zero’ face a dispiriting assignment nobody else wanted. Maybe they must supervise Armed Forces latrine scrubots, or administer experimental R&D medications to insane super-powered mutants. Or maybe those benighted Troubleshooters get in so much trouble they’re assigned the missions in this PARANOIA collection, Sector Zero.

The three missions in this collection will entertain your players while making their Troubleshooters wish they’d called in sick.

‘Bubblegum Run’ sends the PCs on a couple of annoying errands into Junior Creches corrupted by Communist propaganda slipped into chewing-gum wrappers.

In ‘The Dinner Party’, a BLUE citizen recruits the Troubleshooters for a dire emergency, on which the fate of Alpha Complex itself – uh, doesn’t depend at all. In fact, he wants the PCs to prepare an evening party for several high-clearance citizens. Well, what a relief! What could possibly go wrong?

‘Lightning Rod’ sends the Troubleshooters out onto the immense dome over Alpha Complex to set up an R&D experiment. And then another experiment. And another. Hey, what’s all that ominous-looking grey stuff gathering overhead?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
