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 Commie mutant traitors are losing, and that's bad.
(Irrational) General kind of weirdness or irregularity that prompts The Computer to assign a mission to the Troubleshooters: The security clearance system has provoked an intractable crisis.
(Someone) Person, people, organization or agency responsible for the situation: A secret society mission that went disastrously wrong, led by paranoid with semi-automatic slugthrower (HE or HEAT) and electromagnetic clothing (Experimental R&D equipment, makes wearer a living magnet; can stick to metal walls, watch out for knives!) (The armor is more protective than the standard model. Much more protective. Prevents injuries almost entirely. It's also much more cumbersome.). (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 INFRARED (Tension 1) crowded corridor 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 real.
