R&D is in deep trouble. There is a slim but real chance The Computer will disband R&D entirely and redistribute its resources to other service groups. But you are not part of R&D, so that is not your problem, right?
Troubleshooters! Citizens in TRK Sector report that many small items have mysteriously disappeared. This is clearly the work of that notorious thief the Small Item Bandit! (Name pending approval by the Ad-hoc Workshop for Marketable Traitor Nicknames.) That is why you have to go there, arrest the Small Item Bandit and recover what they stole. And yes, we are absolutely, 100% sure the missing items never got sucked past the event horizon of the black hole sitting right over there. On a related note, there is no black hole right over there. Understood, citizen?
The Hole Blame is a mission for Paranoia and the third (of four) in the Project Infinite Hole campaign. (Owning and playing the previous missions is not required but is a rather good idea.) Players and GMs alike will love a frankenstein Briefbot, an active Public Hating Square and up to eight in-mission mini-missions that trick the team into getting Friend Computer to finally recognize that large singularity – even though not a single citizen admits that it is right over there.
Hey, if no one says it exists, do you want to be the one pointing it out to Friend Computer?
