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: Alpha Complex works so badly it endangers the PCs' lives.
(Irrational) General kind of weirdness or irregularity that prompts The Computer to assign a mission to the Troubleshooters: Changed perceptions only certain characters (INFRARED impact armor tester (bureaucratic obstacle, psychotic, kill-crush-smash-destroy)), 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: An Armed Forces director, who mis-keyed some form entries and mistakenly diverted military resources to "Irrational" effect. (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 RED (Tension 6) abandoned Junior Citizen creche may grow into a major problem. The PCs must fix the malfunction and deal with the problems already created. The "Someone" doesn't want the team to succeed, and is actively working against them. The threat is a lie.
(Out To Get You) General real threat posed by the situation, or the consequences if the situation is left unresolved: A strange new Food Vat slime is causing antisocial and dangerous activity in consumers of Hot Fun. The Computer needs PCs to destroy the slime.
Mission Alert: Anonymous hardcopy message slipped under door of PC's quarters. Briefing location 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 Junior Citizen fort (no Commies allowed!). Officious, schoolmasterly briefing officer sitting at the head of a classroom with blackboard and chalk; tests PCs frequently.
This Mission: The food delivery system in GREEN (Tension 11) Sewer tunnel has become plugged. Unplug it.
Outfitting: Infrared Market: Squad of Internal Security GREEN goons patrols market, "just out for an off-duty walk," taking bribes to "look the other way" for each transaction.
Debriefing: Room contains nothing but miniature stools, where the PCs perch with difficulty and discomfort.
