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

*Pushes nic and her useless phone out of the way*

In the spirit of fair play and me being a bit thick, I won't be using the card because it's only fair to those that actually pay attention :)

*breathes a sigh of relief*

Riza, it's your proposal then. Remember, if it helps make everyone comfortable, I'll sit off the team. Then it can be the other 5 resistance members, and I'll hold the swing vote to make sure it passes.

I know I have already stated my point of view a few pages back on how this game played out so far. Since my post received no comment either in favor or against (ego issues? perhaps), other than biggie informing us "Algebra was never my strong suit" (which figures - no actual math took place in my scenario), I would like to know which of the following is true:
a) You didn't quite understand it / pay enough attention to it or
b) You find it unethical (if I may say so) for an outsider to intervene in a game that is already in progress and a few posts from the end.
If it is the former I am willing to restate my opinion (alert! fairly long post).
If it is the latter I completely understand it and that is the reason I didn't jump right on restating my hypothesis.
Also, it's only logical to assume that my theory backs the one that appears to be losing (i.e. biggie's theory), otherwise I wouldn't reappear with this post. (It would be fine by me if it were spies in an imperial squad, but they are spies in a resistance squad, hence imperials. Boooo!) If the other party is the one to suggest I shouldn't post it, it would be a win/win situation for me. So I believe an answer from the game master would be more fitting here (perhaps after consulting the players or at least some of them privately).
This sounds a bit diverting from the actual game cause, when all I intended was the opposite. Oh well.....
