I recently found an awesome party/social game called "The Resistance" that my friends and I love to play. The premise is very similar to games like "mafia" and "werewolf"; you have a group of players, in which some of them are working against the group and have knowledge the others don't.

In "The Resistance", you are basically members of an underground organization known as "The Resistance" attempting to destroy the establishment. However, among you there are counter-agents, or "Imperial Spies" who are working to sabotage your efforts. The spies know who they are, as well as who else is a spy, but will for all intents and purposes appear to be working toward the goals of the Resistance.

The game takes place over a series of 5 "missions". The Resistance is trying to complete 3 missions successfully, while the spies are attempting to sabotage 3 missions. First one to 3 wins.

(Gameplay in next post)

So, people can send me PMs about the game to explain it right? Right?

I'll be around to answer anyone's questions about what the heck's going on, don't worry. Cekuray has already PMed me to clarify a few things :)

Here's the roster so far:


Special_K
Nicnic
Danny Mack
Cekuray
Molly Maltese
Jason Arends

The game has room for up to 4 more players, so let me know if you want in. We can run with 6, so I'll set a deadline for 12:00 server time later today. After that, I'll start the game by randomly assigning allegiances to each player via PM.

After that, I'll post the basic info to get the game started in here, and from there on out I'll only act as a game master, enabling the game to move forward and handling the various in-game events.

As always, PM me or post here if you have any questions!

I choose from the beginning that Molly should not be a leader. :))) Her Maltese origin sounds just like a counter-resistance spy.

OK guys, it's time to start "The Resistance!"

We have 8 players:
Special_K
Nicnic
Danny Mack
Cekuray
Molly Maltese
Jason Arends
M. Lacrimosa
Illicit

Which means, 5 of you will be in the Resistance, while 3 of you will be Imperial Spies, pretending to be members of the Resistance.

In a few minutes, I will randomly determine who the spies are, and you will all receive a PM to the detective name you signed up under, saying either "Resistance" or "Imperial Spy". This is your allegiance for this game. DO NOT DIVULGE YOUR ALLEGIANCE to anyone!

In addition, if you are a spy, you will receive a second PM with the names of all 3 spies. Remember, you are NOT to communicate with your fellow players via PM; all communication should occur publicly, on this message board.

As soon as all the start-up information is PMed, I will randomize the list of players and post it. This is the list we will use for things like turn order.

Stay tuned.

Everyone has had their allegiance PMed to them. If you're in the Resistance, you know your allegiance only. If you are a Spy, you know the identities of the 3 spies in our game.

For this game, the player order is as follows:
M. Lacrimosa
Nicnic
Molly Maltese
Illicit
Jason Arends
Danny Mack
Cekuray
Special_K

This means that M. Lacrimosa will be the first leader. When leadership has to change, it will go down this list in order; once it reaches the bottom, it starts again at the top.

Also, there is a chance that at certain points, something will refer to the player "above" or "below" you; that's based on this list, and wraps around as well.

Shortly I will post the details about the first mission. At this point, the game is considered "ON". Feel free to chat in here until the first mission briefing is posted.

I don't know why I keep cracking up about this game because I highly suspect there is little chance we don't screw this up :-)

Wait so who are we fighting again? Is it just "The Man" sort of thing. Like we are taking down an evil government or sumthin?
