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 have enough resources but too little time to win.
(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 High Programmer who mis-programmed a CompNode so badly the entire node must be re-imaged and rebooted (the situation is cover for this.) (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 "Someone" in a IR marketeer living quarters is flooding the networks with viruses. The threat is real.
Mission Alert: Text message on PDC. Message is intact and correct.
Briefing: Briefing is in crowded computer interface (IR: public terminals area; R-Y: Computer cafe; G-B: private terminal, I-U: communications nexus). Officer has serious coughing fit every few words, disrupting every sentence, and becomes increasingly angry with every request to repeat himself.
This Mission: Neutralize YELLOW Armed Forces master sergeant (information source, dreamy, dazed, probably a Mystic) in crowded Armed Forces dormitory.
Outfitting: Infrared Market: The market is run entirely by Internal Security as a sting operation. Every buyer risks arrest and termination.
Debriefing: Debriefing takes place in a cinema with stadium seating, popcorn and Bouncy Bubble Beverage, with security camera and bot recordings of each PC's less commendable activities projected onscreen.
Find weird phrasing, clearly erroneous output, or other signs of filthy commie mutant traitor sabotage? Copy the offending passages and email them to the High Programmer for investigation.
