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: One kind of technological object (Cyclebot (two-wheel motorized transport popular with Death Leopards)) is behaving far too well.
(Someone) Person, people, organization or agency responsible for the situation: The Computer-or, if it makes more sense, a buzzing, high on Wakey-Wakey ULTRAVIOLET who orders the PCs to protect his retreat while fleeing from something manipulating The Computer's local CompNode. (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: A polite INFRARED biohazard detection helper acting as a courier delivers alert hardcopy; seeks 10cr 'tip' for the delivery. 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 empty computer interface (IR: public terminals area; R-Y: Computer cafe; G-B: private terminal, I-U: communications nexus). When the PCs leave the briefing an explosion follows, leaving no evidence of the officer except a large burn mark and melted furnishings.
This Mission: Determine the cause of the recent Infrared riots in ULTRAVIOLET (Tension 19) ULTRAVIOLET mausoleum. We suspect someone (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.)).
Outfitting: PLC: PLC office openly and entirely subverted by PURGE; continues business as usual, unless PCs show signs of alerting the authorities.
Debriefing: Room contains nothing but miniature stools, where the PCs perch with difficulty and discomfort.
Find weird phrasing, clearly erroneous output, or other signs of filthy commie mutant traitor sabotage? Copy the offending passages and email them to the High Programmer for investigation.
