If any facility has a security system, it will always be less secure and cooler looking than its real world counterpart. All sensor systems must be visually engaging, all traps must have a bypass that relies on pure pluck and guile. Lock-down sequences will require doors to close in sequential order, as opposed to all at the same time.

Some specific elements of the Insecurity System are defined below. Mix and match for an interesting infiltration.

The system need not be high tech in nature. Old-school temples and ruins can have implausible mechanical or mystical devices that serve the same function.

The real-world versions of several of these elements, and the Hollywood methods of defeating them, have been tested by the Myth Busters, frequently with surprising results.

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.
