* Players, in theory, had [[InAndOutOfCharacter no knowledge]] of the rules, so anyone {{metagam|e}}ing ("I get plus one for being behind cover") could be executed for it. (If they ''did'' look, they should simply factor the rules into their schemes without admitting they know, because it's NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught)

NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught[[note]]The assumption that GM will follow the rules, however, is probably not one players should make.)[[/note]]

** One module has a hilarious point about how the Infrared citizens work in the salt mines - but salt is ''white'' and therefore Ultraviolet clearance to handle. As a result the Infareds work in the dark, and actually long since ran out of salt to mine and have been mining rock as seasoning, but who'd ever know?

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Really, the actual adventure often takes a back seat to the creative ways the [=PC=]s can screw each other over[[labelnote:*]] Sabotaging a mission is treason. Failure to punish treason is also treason.[[/labelnote]].
** Often? If the players aren't backstabbing each other every time they get a chance they aren't playing this game right! This game depends on the players being backstabbing weasels.

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Really, While there is technically some sort of mission the actual adventure often takes a back seat [=PC=]s are trying to finish, the real point of the game is to gleefully accept your true role as "backstabbing lying weasel" and come up with ever-more humorous and creative ways the [=PC=]s can screw each other over[[labelnote:*]] to ''sabotage'' that mission[[labelnote:*]] Sabotaging a mission is treason. Failure to punish treason is also treason.[[/labelnote]].

* HistoricalCharacterConfusion: The Computer holds that Communists are Public Enemy Number One, [[ForbiddenFruit making some rebellious types think that there must be something in it]]. However, they're sketchy on the details, and instead of UsefulNotes/VladimirLenin and KarlMarx, they follow the teachings of Music/JohnLennon and [[Creator/MarxBrothers Groucho Marx]]. Close, but, no cigar.
