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: An large-denomination plasticred the PCs cherish will be destroyed.
(Irrational) General kind of weirdness or irregularity that prompts The Computer to assign a mission to the Troubleshooters: A particular drug suddenly has inexplicably altered effects.
(Someone) Person, people, organization or agency responsible for the situation: A senior CPU efficiency consultant, who overreacted in imprudent ways in an effort to get proper paperwork filled out. (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 GREEN (Tension 11) crowded forms processing center may grow into a major problem. The PCs must fix the malfunction and deal with the problems already created. The threat is real.
Mission Alert: A drugged INFRARED drug therapy results assistant acting as a courier delivers alert hardcopy; seeks 10cr 'tip' for the delivery. Message is intact and correct.
Briefing: Briefing is in empty wiring conduit shaft. Officer has serious coughing fit every few words, disrupting every sentence, and becomes increasingly angry with every request to repeat himself.
This Mission: Deliver these emergency stun gun (stuns for one round) to a Troubleshooter team under attack. No, you don't need to be armed; it's a simple delivery mission!
Outfitting: PLC: Experimental "Mobile PLC" in a transtube car. Every so often the car must stop to load and unload supplies.
Debriefing: Room is sheet steel with a single chair in the center and a large sign: PLEASE SIT DOWN with arrow pointing to the chair. The debriefing officer spends the session pacing around the chair, and (if necessary) discourages PCs from sitting in it. Chair is lethal.
