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 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.

It seems that is very tricky choosing these 4 names. :)

Do we even get to find out who were spies?

It doesn't take much to guess
that I was a spy - I confess.
There were some issues I couldn't address
And in the end I couldn't care less.
There was a certain lack of finesse
and opinions that tried to oppress
for the game to properly progress.
It certainly caused Molly stress,
to see the game go into recess.
But hey, nevertheless,
there's no use in pointless excess,
in dwelling on what turned into a mess.
Redress, reassess, convalesce,
and then quietly... acquiesce.

*Takes a bow*

I was trying to come up with a witty little ditty like Squirrel, but I gave it up as a bad job :)
