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 have enough resources but too little time to win.
(Irrational) General kind of weirdness or irregularity that prompts The Computer to assign a mission to the Troubleshooters: Changed perceptions only certain characters (INFRARED drug therapy results assistant (sadistic hindrance, drugged (sandallathon, visomorpain))), 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 Pro Tech, 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: 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 real.
Mission Alert: Text message on PDC. Message is intact and correct.
Briefing: Briefing is in MemoMax archive vault. Briefing officer sits with his back to the PCs; he passes notes to a terrified Infrared citizen, who reads them aloud.
This Mission: Neutralize RED R&D weapons beta tester (indifferent bystander, buzzing, high on Wakey-Wakey) in crowded computer interface (IR: public terminals area; R-Y: Computer cafe; G-B: private terminal, I-U: communications nexus).
Outfitting: PLC: A PLC shop that has none of the equipment needed, but is willing to make strange or incorrect substitutions, could be potentially cool stuff.
Debriefing: Debriefing conducted solely by R&D scientists. They ask many questions about equipment, giving the impression the only reason for the mission was to test equipment. After the scientists leave, The Computer covers the treason accusations.
