Once again, turmoil is brewing in the underground crime world of New York. The city is slowly being taken over by La Cosa Nostra, the New York underground mafia. They are recruiting members at record numbers and they can be seen in every night club and bar scaring away customers. And now Joseph Hollis, the High Philosopher of the Order of Socrates, and mayor of New York, has learned of a secret plan by his rival faction, La Cosa Nostra, to go on a crime spree and make off with money, valuables, and ultimate control of various establishments in New York.

Mr. Hollis, being not only concerned with the livelihoods of the patrons of his city, but also with his rival faction gaining too much power, has decided to put together a team of trusted Order of Socrates resistance operatives to foil the plans of La Cosa Nostra. Unfortunately, there has been a lot of attrition lately, and certain people have been going to the highest bidder to offer their services as a spy working from within the Order of Socrates. Joseph is aware of this and he's put together the best possible team he can think of, but unwittingly will be inviting some spies for La Cosa Nostra to his team of operatives.

As long as the loyal Order of Socrates operatives can figure out whom amongst them is untrustworthy, their mission should be a success. But if they trust the wrong people, La Cosa Nostra will succeed and cause severe damage to the New York economy, while gaining enough power to take over the city.

Will the mayor and his team be able to restore order to New York? Or will the underground mafia, take over the city's resources? That's for you to decide in this version of The Resistance: Order of Socrates Restores Order

Okay ive lost count of how many pages of paragraphs ive skipped, (emma's right about the donkey's thing) All i can say is on the last game played when illicit and i were on a team and she sabotaged and i did not, there was absolutely NO pre-planning on that move between her and i, *i* voted sucsess there and *hoped* that because she wasnt new to the game like i was that she'd know to vote sabotage and i left it to her, it was COMPLETE luck and chance that she voted that way, I may be clueless, i may be stupid but guys one thing i am not is a cheater. Call me anything else want, but you cant call me that. So everyone lets keep the 'short' replies, well...Short?

OK Ms Helen, time for you to PROVE you're Resistance. (This oughta be good...)

You've got "NO CONFIDENCE". Boy, that kind of needs to end up in a spy's hands, doesn't it? So, give it to ANY of the following (don't care who): Illicit, Riza, Cekuray, Molly. That'll help "prove" you're clean.
You've got "STRONG LEADER". Again, that card really helps the spies force 5 failed missions doesn't it? Give it to a different member of the above group. Again, don't care who.
And, "TAKE RESPONSIBILITY". That one lets someone take the other cards you gave away, or Marc's "NO CONFIDENCE". (not counting Opinion maker here, since it's kind of a sucky power) So, give it to a THIRD member of that group.

You, of course, will not do that, because then the spies lose a lot of power. And on the off chance you do to "clear" yourself, then well, the spies lose a lot of power.

There's 2 camps here: The "Serges and Eden are spies" camp, and the "Biggie/Helen/Jason/Marc are spies" camp. So, give the powers to the other 4 people. At MOST, one spy would get a power that way.

Your move, Helen.

screwed up the logic in the last paragraph above:
Edited:
There's 2 camps here: The "Serges and Eden are spies" camp, and the "Biggie/Helen/Jason/Marc are spies" camp. So, give the powers to the other 4 people. At LEAST, one Resistance member would get a power that way.

(Explanation)
If me and Eden are indeed spies, then there are only 2 other spies in the game. Both of them could be in that group of 4 i mentioned. By giving one power each to 3 of them, you in fact ensure that one resistance member gets one.
If I'm being truthful, though, then there are NO spies in that group, and the resistance gets THREE powerful cards.

If I were Helen, I would propose the following team:

Illicit
Helen
Molly
Biggie
Marc

This does scare me a little, however, I believe that Cek is a pretty safe bet to be one of the other spies, because he talked a TON last game, and has said next to nothing this time. Why? Because Serges and Eden appeared to have this in the bag from the beginning, so he didn't NEED to put suspicion on himself.

I'm pretty sure that Illicit was outed as Resistance to throw us off their trail and try to get Illicit to trust them. Of course, Illicit, like me, has the added bonus of knowing Serges pretty well, and is hopefully suspicuous of how conveniently this has all worked out.

I'm pretty sure on Helen being resistance now that I know Serges and Eden are spies, and Marc didn't vote to sabotage the last mission so I believe he's resistance as well.

Clever suggestion, Biggie. You know the 5 on that team will vote yes, which means only one more would need to vote yes to approve it. Since Jason is off, and 3 spies are on, his YES vote passes the mission. So far, Marc is the only person who could reject it in that case (until Helen gives the powers away), which means a spy win.

1st mission
Two spies plus a resistance player. S1+S2+R1. All vote success.

2nd mission
Same people plus a spy. S3 understands she has to sabotage the mission. S1+S2+R1+S3. One sabotage.

3rd mission
R1 replaced by R2. R2 forced to post mission result publicly. S1+S2+R2+S3. All spies vote success.

4th mission
Same people plus a resistance. The only dark spot of the scenario. Which two spies vote sabotage? If S3 is the one itĘs too risky. So she decides to let the others sabotage this time. Of course this would require not only smart but also experienced players. Is this the case? If so then S1+S2+R2+S3+R3, two vote sabotage.

*S1 and S2 were forced to pick one another in their missions since they were self-declared resistance. Otherwise how can a resistance player not place confidence in an identified brother? All the others just believed they were resistance.

Disclaimer: I wonĘt take any blame if this leads to spies winning the game. Just a “possible” scenario.
