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 simply can't wait! :) Still waiting on Bela, but I'll interject my thoughts here.

I'm confident now, since my team will of course be Sal, Yeti and myself. Banking on the fact that Sal and Yeti are Resistance too, since the last mission went off without a hitch, it'll be in the bag for Resistance! :)

My turn will come next regardless of if we approve or dont approve Devi's team, right? With that (at least seemingly) so solid as a Resistance win, I almost want to proceed with her team! My thinking is this: If we force Riza to use In the Spotlight and then tally up the Succeed/ Sabotages, we'll be sure to positively identify one or two spies, and proceed confidently on the final mission. Even if they Sabotage, it'll bring it to 2-2 and then the next round will be in the bag, and my faith in Sal will be ironclad-- we'll know for sure our final mission is a win.
If Riza still refuses to use in the Spotlight on Devi or myself, it can be assumed that she is indeed a spy. I don't know if I'm missing something in figuring that, any thoughts?

Either you or Sal could still be a delightfully devious spy. Riza is the most sketchy, but there's nothing concrete against her. Mission 4, rather than Mission 5, needs to be a Yeti, Molly, Sal team - with IN THE SPOTLIGHT used on either yourself or Sal. That way if either of you turn out to not be a true darling for the cause the redeemed Riza can take their spot.

Oh yeah, I guess I forget that I'm still a suspect. : | Well, that makes sense then, carry on.

I guess, if you are asking yet, I shall vote YES for DW's mission team.

I'm going to hold off on voting until all this power business has been sorted out, in case we all need to chat things over a little more. However my vote will be NO, and I find it very odd Sal that you'll vote through a team that absolutely has a spy on it at this stage of the game.

Yeti, I know the objective is to win, but the play of the game is still fun. Even though I am with the resistance it doesn't mean that I don't enjoy seeing all the smokescreens and guesswork and "logical deductions" being made. All right, for the sake of those who thinking that winning is the objective, I will hold off casting my vote, until Yeti votes. If that's permissable.

Hm, Bela hasn't messaged me, I wonder if it was taken to mean Devi will find out your allegiance, Yeti? Since she said I'm using my power on Yeti or something to that effect.

Either its suspect, or perhaps Sal is onto the same track I was on- I feel like there's AH HA! To be revealed in this round as I mentioned before. If it's because the three of us are the Resistance as I am comfortable suspecting, then Riza and Devi as the spy team will be neatly foxholed. There's a certain draw to it, I can see Sal's point and Yeti's equally.

The more I think about it, the less I suspect Yeti. Absolutely nothing he has done is suspicious. I'm going to trust him, tentatively. And I much prefer his mission proposal.

Furthermore, though Molly may be a good actress, she doesn't fool me. Very few people do.

I'm 99% certain that if this mission goes forward, it will fail. You already know I think Molly is a spy, and I'm pretty sure now that Devi is as well. So I vote NO. Anyone who votes otherwise is highly suspicious.

Sal, I know you appreciate logical deduction as much as I do, but I also know you like to win too. So. :)
