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: Two or more service groups are breaking each other down.
(Irrational) General kind of weirdness or irregularity that prompts The Computer to assign a mission to the Troubleshooters: One kind of technological object (bucket and mop) is misbehaving.
(Someone) Person, people, organization or agency responsible for the situation: A Death Leopard gang. (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: Relayed through a public confession booth, read in the scrolling "Credit Due" message on a vending machine or overheard in a communal area. Briefing time is wrong. The information is missing, replaced by [INSERT DATA HERE] or similar. Secret society contacts or servile truckling to The Computer may fill in missing data.
Briefing: Briefing is in acid-etched sinkhole under food production area. Briefing officer sits curled up and rocking backwards and forwards in the middle of the location; muttering under his breath-
This Mission: An unauthorized vermin poison was accidentally deployed at crowded FunBall arena (or other large room). Go and retrieve it before it squashes something important.
Outfitting: PLC: Shipping containers stacked atop one another, each container listed for inscrutable bureaucratic purposes as being in a different sector.
Debriefing: Room contains nothing but miniature stools, where the PCs perch with difficulty and discomfort.
