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 just aren't good enough to handle their assignment.
(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 High Programmer who mis-programmed a CompNode so badly the entire node must be re-imaged and rebooted (the situation is cover for this.) (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 RED (Tension 5) empty corridor may grow into a major problem. The PCs must fix the malfunction and deal with the problems already created. 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 high-clearance official's malfeasance will be exposed, and drugged (thymoglandin, hydropsionic acid) wishes to frame the Troubleshooters for the official's crime.
Mission Alert: Via Explodatron (small, nervous bot that exists to explode in hopeless situations, taking enemies and PCs with it) functional. 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 Pro Tech's paint-mixing facility. Officer has serious coughing fit every few words, disrupting every sentence, and becomes increasingly angry with every request to repeat himself.
This Mission: Recent excavation has uncovered an ancient stockpile of nuclear material beneath RED (Tension 5) empty hospital drug vending area. Retrieve all you can.
Outfitting: PLC: A PLC shop that has none of the equipment needed, but is willing to make appropriate substitutions, could be potentially cool stuff.
Debriefing: The debriefing room is locked when the PCs arrive, and no debriefing officer ever arrives no matter how long they wait.
