I have GMed a couple of sessions of Paranoia now, but I suddenly realised the other day a strategic error that I have been making with the setting.
I always imagined Alpha Complex as a series of white corridors, but that would mean only High Programmers could walk anywhere. So I changed my mind, imagining the corridors as a lighter-than-battleship grey. Still, if sticking to the whole security clearance issue Alpha Complex should be mostly black… including cutlery, food and drink, and so on.
In the historical documents of Alpha Complex (that is, the game's previous editions), what's the general colour scheme of Alpha Complex? How strictly are the colour coding rules applied?
