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: An combination for a security lock the PCs cherish will be destroyed.
(Irrational) General kind of weirdness or irregularity that prompts The Computer to assign a mission to the Troubleshooters: Changed perceptions only certain characters (RED HPD&MC low-rent bureaucrat (indifferent bystander, gullible (worryingly lacking in paranoia))), including one or more PCs. The changed perception is smell/taste, touch, balance or other non-sight, non-hearing sense.
(Someone) Person, people, organization or agency responsible for the situation: The 21st-degree leader of the secret society Psion, who plans to expand his personal power and the might of his secret-society. (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: A minor malfunction in ULTRAVIOLET (Tension 19) empty HPD & Mind Control waiting room may grow into a major problem. The PCs must fix the malfunction and deal with the problems already created. The "Someone" doesn't want the team to succeed, and is actively working against them. 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: A drugged INFRARED algae pizza delivery person acting as a courier delivers alert hardcopy; seeks 10cr 'tip' for the delivery. Briefing location is wrong. The alert itself is damaging-text message contains software virus that crashes PDC or vidscreen, physical alert has toxins or is radioactive, etc.
Briefing: Briefing is in empty IntSec holding cells. Briefing officer is hiding inside an empty Cold Fun barrel and passes written notes out to the PCs through a small bunghole.
This Mission: Investigate accusations of GREEN HPD&MC junior executive planting evidence against VIOLET (information source, dreamy, dazed, probably a Mystic).
Outfitting: Infrared Market: A "Broke" market. Troubleshooters always leave broke, with stuff that's broke. Bad deals all around.
Debriefing: A compact office with one desk and a chair, occupied by the debriefing officer, with the PCs standing amid towers of forms, printouts and manila folders, all bearing the names of one or more PCs.
