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' secret societies have turned against them.
(Irrational) General kind of weirdness or irregularity that prompts The Computer to assign a mission to the Troubleshooters: The economy has grown even stranger than usual.
(Someone) Person, people, organization or agency responsible for the situation: A subsector's Infrareds, who have gone off their pharmatherapy and are now conspiring against The Computer, led by INFRARED algae pizza delivery person (bureaucratic obstacle, wild eyed, incoherent, even frenzied). (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" believes (accurately?) the PCs are assassins sent to kill him; he tries to kill them first. Meanwhile, the PCs must complete their mission. 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: 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.
Mission Alert: Text message on PDC. Message is intact and correct.
Briefing: Briefing is in heat-resistant mitten knitting sweatshop. Officer skims through the entire briefing as if he expects those present to know all details already, then walks out without allowing questions.
This Mission: Traitors with Adhesive Skin (s) are active in RED (Tension 4) Proper Bedding Maintenance Hall of Fame. Use this Skin Core Sampler to obtain their genetic material for study.
Outfitting: Infrared Market: A dingy, dirty corridor. PURGE runs this market, and will terminate any group who "misbehaves" (in PURGE's stern judgment). Lots of weapons.
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.
