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 Computer has taken a personal dislike to the PCs.
(Irrational) General kind of weirdness or irregularity that prompts The Computer to assign a mission to the Troubleshooters: The Computer has decreed a new holiday with odd customs and practices, and everyone knows about it but the PCs.
(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: Surplus Armed Forces weaponry floods the IR market. Citizens (YELLOW PLC "Yellowpants" management consultant (sadistic hindrance, drugged (sandallathon, visomorpain)); INFRARED algae pizza delivery person (sadistic hindrance, believes himself possessed by demons); VIOLET Tech Services Bot Allocation Advisor (bureaucratic obstacle, gullible (worryingly lacking in paranoia))) happily demonstrate their new armaments in many locations (BLUE (Tension 13) ULTRAVIOLET mausoleum; ORANGE (Tension 7) crowded food production area (IR-Y: Food Vats, G-U: hydroponic gardens); YELLOW (Tension 10) illegal sports arena (or other big room)). The threat is a lie.
(Out To Get You) General real threat posed by the situation, or the consequences if the situation is left unresolved: The "Someone" believes (accurately?) the PCs are assassins sent to kill him; he tries to kill them first. Meanwhile, the PCs must complete their mission.
Mission Alert: Stamped onto side of Old Reckoning artifact sought by three secret societies (Sierra Club, Computer Phreaks, and Illuminati (undercover as Mystics)). Recognition password (to be given to briefing officer) is wrong. The information is obscured by advertising (pop-up ad, jingle, viral marketing, etc.). Sponsoring advertiser may possibly have record of unaltered alert.
Briefing: Briefing is in acid-etched sinkhole under food production area. Briefing officer wears camouflage suit (Experimental R&D equipment; works like Chameleon mutant power; one shot can render it completely useless) and fiddles with an exotic-looking plasma generator (V1V energy); expects attack at any moment.
This Mission: A Vulture Squadron has been infiltrated by no less than 13 Commie traitors. Remove them; ensure they fall in the line of duty, so we can honor them as fallen heroes.
Outfitting: PLC: A PLC shop that has none of the equipment needed, but is willing to make strange or incorrect substitutions, could be potentially cool stuff.
Debriefing: Debriefing conducted solely by R&D scientists. They ask many questions about equipment, giving the impression the only reason for the mission was to test equipment. After the scientists leave, The Computer covers the treason accusations.
