The rival factions of the city of Shangri-La have been at odds for years. The Tigers seek to crush all opposition to the Prince’s rule, while the Tea Steepers are disapproving of the new Prince’s disregard for the peaceful traditions of Shangri-La.

To complicate an already fragile state of co-existence, quite a few nemesis hunters have gained the trust of both factions. Both factions, while obliged to be cordial to their new saviours, are feeling uneasy with what is apparently the new status-quo. The Prince’s soldiers have worked to ensured that the Monastery is off-limits to all visitors to Shangri-La, but this hasn’t stopped the Steepers from finding detectives sympathetic to their cause and collaborating with them " and the Tigers know it.

With the haunting clickety-clack-clack of countless pairs of Polka Dot Pumps ringing in his ears, the Chief of the Tigers of Shangri-La resolves to destroy the Tea Steepers once and for all. The Tea Steepers, fully aware of the plans the Tigers have in store for them, put together a team of detectives to put their plan into action. The wise monks of Shangri-La (after a few brainstorming sessions with the Scholars of Shangri-La " because you can never escape the Scholars of Shangri-La) know that there is but one way to protect their campaign against what they believe to be the Prince’s oppressive rule. However, the Prince’s Chief of Security has managed to sneak a few trusted informers onto the team.

Will the Steepers succeed? Will their champions succumb to the scheming of the spies? Will we ever figure out what's going on with Rasputin’s Egg? How many Sparkly Vests are the Tigers slowly processing to create"? Whoa, I nearly gave the game away there. Anyway, let’s find out!

I'm a little nervous about this play, but I see how it makes sense. I just don't want to add another loss for Resistance, and I'm very bummed that we haven't identified at least one spy for sure by now. We're 1-1, if we identify a spy for sure but lose in the process on this round, we're getting into mighty hot water if we can't identify the other in time for the next mission.

I think this is the best way to proceed, however. This is of course, banking on whether Riza chooses to use IN THE SPOTLIGHT. I'll be voting YES, I want to mark one spy off my list!

Everybody's voted; Yeti's mission team proposal (consisting of himself and DevilishWings) was APPROVED unanimously.

If Riza uses her "IN THE SPOTLIGHT" card on either player on this team, that player will have to post their SUCCESS/SABOTAGE" vote on this thread instead of PMing me with their vote. Riza, would you like to play your "IN THE SPOTLIGHT" card?

Right, as I'd hoped that little exercise seems to have proved Devi is a spy. Since Riza has been so completely unhelpful, I'm going to work on the hypothesis that she is the second spy. Therefore Sal, I will only approve a team that contains a combination of yourself, Molly, and I.

I play NO CONFIDENCE.

I knew I forgot something with that last post, LOL.

Yeti has played "NO CONFIDENCE", causing this proposal to fail.

Sal, you're the next leader. Please propose a team of TWO detectives for this mission (Mission 3, Team 2). You may put yourself on the team. Once Sal posts his proposal, everybody can vote on whether or not they approve his team by PMing me (Mission 3, Team 2, YES/NO). If a majority approves it, it passes; if not, DW will be the next leader.

Riza can choose to play her "STRONG LEADER" card *before* Sal proposes a team. Riza, would you like to play "STRONG LEADER"?

"IN THE SPOTLIGHT" is also in play, you know what to do.

Feel free to post here or PM me if you're thinking of using a card and would like me to wait until you're sure.

Nope, I don't want to use STRONG LEADER.

I do have a question though. Can IN THE SPOTLIGHT be used on oneself?

Okay, Bela. Far be it from me to try to suggest reasons for anything, but I do propose that the boys take a whack at it. I advance the proposition that Yeti and I make up the team.

I don't know, Riza, I think it's up to the game master. I'd say no. On one site I know of, the server's pretty much the game master, and you're not even allowed to give yourself a power card when you're a leader (which can really change things up; I want to do that if/when I put up a new game), so it's safe to assume you would definitely not be allowed to play a card on yourself.

Sal has proposed a team consisting of himself and Yeti. Time for everybody to PM me with your vote on this proposal (Mission 3, Team 2, YES/NO). If a majority approves it, it passes; if not, DW will be the next leader.

Cards in play: STRONG LEADER (Riza), IN THE SPOTLIGHT (Riza).
Failed proposals: 1

Sounds good to me! We'll know Sal and Yeti's allegiance for sure if this pushes through, its too late in the game for tricky spies to pretend with their votes! :)

Sal's team (Mission 3, Team 2: Sal Iva and Yeti Face) has been APPROVED unanimously.

The mission will now proceed; Sal and Yeti must PM me with their SUCCEED/SABOTAGE votes.

Remember, members of the Resistance MUST vote to have the mission SUCCEED, while spies can choose to SUCCEED or SABOTAGE.

Riza can choose to use "IN THE SPOTLIGHT" on either team member; if you'd like to do so now, post here and mention who you're using it on. The player she uses it on will have to post their SUCCESS/SABOTAGE vote on this thread as opposed to PMing me with it.
