The Computer

All Knowing, Awe-Inspiring, and Always Right


The Computer deals with Troubleshooters primarily before missions, arcs, and occasionally episodes. Rarely, The Computer will deal with Troubleshooters during an episode. Debriefing occurs upon completion of a mission or failure of an episode, the latter of which The Computer is extremely unhappy.

A Disposition Scale is used to measure The Computer’s current attitude toward a Troubleshooter. This disposition is affected by Troubleshooter/Computer interaction as well as successful (or unsuccessful) completion of a mission.


The Computer is always right. It lividly HATES Mutants (almost as much as Commie Traitors!). The Computer is the sole deity, leader, and friend of our wonderful universe of Paranoia.
