Mob history is to be made tonight, and you are along for the ride.

Sonny Capellini, The La Cosa Nostra boss of the Brooklyn area and a few of his closest compatriots were found dead in his home two nights ago, victims of blasts from sawed-off shotguns. Fuggheddaboudit. Theories suspect rival Emil "The Butcher" Bocelli, a higher-up with no small means at his disposal. Emil wanted to assume his place as the top man in the Brooklyn outfit.

However, the Santanelli's have cracked open the books and are hesitant to appoint the wild-card Bocelli, for fear they might have trouble from him later on down the line. They favor Jimmy "Legs" Tarabotti, a well-respected mobster who has no beef against the Santanelli's. However, La Cosa Nostra isn't about to lose more manpower over this.

Jimmy "Legs" Tarabotti has been sent for, and if he makes it to the meeting in a warehouse on 34th tonight at midnight, he will assume the mantle of the entire Brooklyn outfit. If he doesn't make it, the outfit goes to Bocelli.

You are a close-knit crew of Tarabotti's supporters, but word on the street is that Bocelli bribed a few of his men to the other side. Its possible, with their sabotage, that Tarabotti will be dead far before midnight. Only the final strike of the clock will tell.
Can you keep Legs Tarabotti alive until he becomes the most untouchable man in New York? Find out in this game of...The Resistance!

MISSION 2: Sneaking Tarabotti Out

Tarabotti puts his faith in Riza Hawkeye to assemble a team to give the orderlies the slip. After much deliberating and suspicious looks on the part of nic, she proposes that Danny Mack, biggie528, Marc Lacrimosa and Cekuray are up to the challenge. With no time wasted, Riza hustles the rest of the crew into the waiting cars, where they bide their time with bated breath.

Inside, Biggie and Marc high-five, and flipping their aviator sunglasses over their eyes and adjusting their leatha jackets for effect, they promptly saunter over to the far end of the wing and start flipping gurneys and poking holes in IV bags without further ado. Whooping and hollering, they gallivant about causing destruction to the hospitals property while the orderlies shriek bloody murder and run after them.

Danny Mack and Cekuray wait until the coast is clear, and help Tarabotti hobble out the door, his hospital dressing gown flapping in the wind. They make sure to grab his effects on the way down to the waiting car.

Biggie and Marc join them a moment later, flushed in the face and grinning from ear to ear. A parade of angry orderlies follows them by a hair, but are left in the dust by the car squealing out of the parking lot.

Congratulations. Mission 2 was a SUCCESS.

????-SUCCESS
????-SUCCESS
????-SUCCESS
????-SUCCESS

The prognosis for making it to the warehouse on time doesn't look good. The crew drove Tarabotti to the hospital to be treated for his gunshot wound while the rest of the gang met them there. The doctors want to keep him overnight for monitoring. Eh, whats a flesh wound, right? Jimmy Tarabotti is frantic. He asks Riza Hawkeye to help him assemble a crew to give the orderlies the slip...from one friend to another.

Mission 3: Makin' Good.

Tarabotti is pleased. Due to the quick thinking of his associates, the crew is back on schedule. However, there is a side stop to be made. Tarabotti plans to present a gift to his benefactors upon assuming his mantle. This gift comes in the form of a cash-cow new dive club in town which have opened their books to him and are raking in the dough. Tarabotti needs a crew assembled to go in, bust some knee-caps, scare some bookies and come out with the first in a long line of regular payments. He looks to trusted crew member biggie528 to help him assemble this crew.

Biggie, you have two abilities to pass out or keep for yourself. They are:

OVERHEARD CONFIDENCE- You must look at the player card above or below you on the list to learn their allegiance.
and
KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON YOU- You may use this to learn how the player voted in a mission after results are taken.

Biggie, please select four players for Mission 3 Team 1 Proposal.
