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: Everyone else in the Complex is in league against the PCs.
(Irrational) General kind of weirdness or irregularity that prompts The Computer to assign a mission to the Troubleshooters: Mysterious duplicates or analogues of the PCs or other YELLOW R&D weapon calibrator (indifferent bystander, psychotic, kill-crush-smash-destroy)s are active in Alpha Complex.
(Someone) Person, people, organization or agency responsible for the situation: A High Programmer who has started a lottery or other credit-making scheme and has illicitly pulled needed supplies from some vital installation. (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: Waste disposal is breaking down; garbage is backing up in the hallways and will soon flood the complex. The threat is real.
Mission Alert: Anonymous hardcopy message slipped under door of PC's workplace. Recognition password (to be given to briefing officer) is wrong. The information is replaced by extortion threat from anonymous hacker: "Send 100cr to this Gray Subnet account and I'll send you the data."
Briefing: Briefing is in crowded Bright Vision Re-education Center. Briefing officer has left a recording device with the mission on it, but the mechanism is jammed at double speed with no rewind option.
This Mission: Deliver this power vest (Experimental R&D equipment, charged with high voltage, does S4K energy damage to attackers using bare hands, metal hand weapons or force swords) to ULTRAVIOLET playing a card game that includes pictures of the PCs on the cards. Though the item appears treasonous, rest assured it is perfectly above-board. Perfectly.
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: 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.
