It is rumored that the ornate palace gates of Shangri-La have finally been opened to the public for the first time in known history. The Prince is making his debut into the public eye with a brilliant gala hosted by the Prince himself: an exclusive invitation-only event attended only by the most prominent and affluent people from countries all over the world.

Some commoners have been invited to this rare event--but not as guests. The Prince's most trusted advisor has particularly collected special operatives to patrol the event: the world's brightest, swiftest, and most skilled. You will be entrusted with making sure that everything goes off without a hitch. But there are those who would rather see the event go down in flames, along with the Prince himself.

Five minutes before the event is scheduled to start, a report of a most alarming nature reaches the operatives' ears. There has been a breach in the ranks. Some spies have infiltrated the group! But since they have never seen each other's faces, there is no way to tell whose allegiance is true. The team has been compromised, but there is still a chance to save the evening.

The operatives' job this evening is to make sure the Prince's gala goes off without a hitch. If he is pleased at the end of the night, they will be rewarded handsomely. Sources say he is forgiving of small mishaps, but when pushed too far...

The Prince's reputation is at stake. Will his gala be a phenomenal success, or will it succumb to the sabotage of the spies? Stay tuned to find out in this installment of The Resistance.

(Those interested only in the end result may skip to the next post.)

Adam's team quickly makes its way outdoors, where an enormous ring of fire encircles the building. The air is thick with smoke and the team members' ears roar with the burning of the foliage. "How are we going to put this out?" Jason yells, swiveling his head from side to side.

"I have an idea, though it's crazy," Adam says loudly. "According to the blueprint of the palace, the main water valve is located just beneath..." he explains, gesturing wildly.

The team breaks and they all rush back indoors where the plan is relayed to the Prince's closest advisor. Immediately, servants are deployed to help herd the guests upstairs, to the very top tower of the castle. The Prince refuses to leave, and stands his post at the top of the staircase. All the windows and doors to the outside are sealed shut.

"Open the main valve!" Adam orders, and the Molly, Nic, and Jason wrench the wheel counter-clockwise. Instantly, a torrent of water rockets forth into the ballroom, flooding the entire first floor in a matter of seconds. The team rushes up to forcibly grab the Prince and carries him most unbecomingly over their heads as they dart up the stairs to the tower, the water already lapping at their feet. Groans issue from the front palace doors as the pressure builds inside. The palace has become a virtual fish tank.

With a resounding crack of splintering wood, the front door bursts outward, and the water surges out in a giant wave onto the grounds. The fire is instantly extinguished.

A cheer erupts from the tower above, where the guests have been watching the whole show. The Prince, thoroughly ruffled, gets to his feet. In full view of the guests, he tilts his head in a bow towards the operatives.

Their futures are assured.

The Mission 3 team was made up entirely of Resistance, and therefore the members would have all voted to succeed. In an attempt to save time...

RESISTANCE WINS!!
