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: One kind of technological object (hand flamer (S3K energy)) is misbehaving.
(Someone) Person, people, organization or agency responsible for the situation: An R&D experiment that went disastrously wrong, created by psychotic, kill-crush-smash-destroy. (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 a lie.
(Out To Get You) General real threat posed by the situation, or the consequences if the situation is left unresolved: A biological agent will transform or devastate the PCs or a large population. The Computer sends in the Troubleshooters as guinea pigs.
Mission Alert: Anonymous hardcopy message slipped under door of PC's quarters. 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 crowded transtube station. When the PCs leave the briefing an explosion follows, leaving no evidence of the officer except a large burn mark and melted furnishings.
This Mission: We suspect INFRARED reactor fuel rod replenisher (information source, drugged (sandallathon, visomorpain)), who's infiltrating a Armed Forces firm for Internal Security, of being a double-agent for Internal Security plant (hiding as Free Enterprise). Infiltrate the firm and see where his allegiance lies.
Outfitting: C-Bay or other online auction site: Price: list price. Delivery: please allow 24 hours for delivery to PCs' specified address. Nothing at all unusual about this transaction. Or is there? Sounds a little suspicious, doesn't it? Absolutely nothing wrong? Really? Hmm....
Debriefing: Debriefing room is well appointed with luxurious carpet, comfortable chairs and refreshments served throughout. Soothing musics plays throughout the session. Laser emplacements are visible in every corner and track the PCs' every move.
