The Computer has generated the following mission for your team. It has been carefully designed to ensure the maximum safety and satisfaction for your team.
Paranoia is the Irrational Fear Someone is Out To Get You(Fear) Dominant type of fear to install in the PCs: The PCs are themselves the greatest threat to Alpha Complex.
(Irrational) General kind of weirdness or irregularity that prompts The Computer to assign a mission to the Troubleshooters: A particular drug suddenly has inexplicably altered effects.
(Someone) Person, people, organization or agency responsible for the situation: A secret society mission that went disastrously wrong, led by wild eyed, incoherent, even frenzied. (The identity of the Someone need not be obvious at the mission's outset, and in fact things may play out more appropriately if the Someone is not discovered until late in the proceedings.)
(Out To Get You) General apparent threat posed by the situation, or the consequences if the situation is left unresolved: The Computer believes something horrible has happened, but gives the PCs no details, and forbids them to tell anyone for fear of starting a panic. The threat is real.
Mission Alert: A truckling INFRARED scrubot lint screen cleaner acting as a courier delivers alert verbally; seeks 10cr 'tip' for the delivery. Message is intact and correct.
Briefing: Briefing is in outside Alpha Complex dome . 4 suspicious, twitchy briefing officer(s) in highly defended position (e.g., seated atop a massive gun emplacement) at rear of GREEN (Tension 11) crowded enviro conditioning duct.
This Mission: An abandoned VIOLET (Tension 17) Junior Citizen fort (no Commies allowed!) has been infested by Commies. Demolish it, preferably with the Commies inside.
Outfitting: Infrared Market: The market is run entirely by Internal Security as a sting operation. Every buyer risks arrest and termination.
Debriefing: Troubleshooters and debriefing officer sit at a round table. Officer orders them to play a card or board game, while the officer encourages them to reveal details about their mission and about their feelings.
