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 suspect a High Programmer is out to get them.
(Irrational) General kind of weirdness or irregularity that prompts The Computer to assign a mission to the Troubleshooters: One kind of technological object (Vulturecraft (heavily armed, extremely snobbish aircraft)) is behaving far too well.
(Someone) Person, people, organization or agency responsible for the situation: An executive at one of the PCs' service firms, who wishes to covertly create the situation in order to procure a fat service-group repair contract. (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" has taken control of crowded decaying and pestilential wreck of an abandoned sector: garage / vehicle dispatch and is slaughtering enemies. The PCs are either trapped there or sent to deal with the problem. 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: Waste disposal is breaking down; garbage is backing up in the hallways and will soon flood the complex.
Mission Alert: Via high-frequency radio transmission that gives PCs excruciating headaches and sends petbots crazy with excitement. Briefing location is wrong. The information is replaced by extortion threat from anonymous hacker: "Send 100cr to this Gray Subnet account and I'll send you the data."
Briefing: Briefing is in private slime farm. Given in a transtube, on a recording with a folder of documents; recording self-destructs 5 seconds after stopping. wrong tape, right docs, right mission.
This Mission: An R&D genetic experiment is running loose in VIOLET (Tension 18) crowded grooming and hygiene station. Neutralize it before it causes too much damage. If it talks to you, ignore it.
Outfitting: PLC: A Multi-Purpose Chute with graffiti "CompUSUKS!" above it-a password (Comp-U-SUK-5) into an unlimited account on this compromised machine.
Debriefing: A pitch black room, with dim light filtering in under the entrance door. Unsettling clicking noises, like a trigger being pulled on a jammed gun.
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.
