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!

Haha, I understand where you're coming from Sal. There are no hard facts in this game- and the only ones we have just haven't been played yet. While out of the realm of logic, its still completely true that even Yeti and I could be spies in cahoots. I get what you're saying! :)

Good, Molly. No offense was intended, just a summation of my thoughts after each round. Which will probably stand until something alters them. And I think Yeti believed me whan I said I didn't care that much about winning. :)

Do I have to do anything yet? I have almost all the votes; results should be out soon. You can all start thinking of teams you'd pick.

And a reminder: with only five players, Mission 4 needs only ONE SABOTAGE vote to FAIL.

The team DW proposed (consisting of herself, Molly and Riza) has been REJECTED (4-1).

The votes:

Molly Maltese: NO
Riza Hawkeye: NO
Yeti Face: NO
Sal Iva: NO
DevilishWings: YES

Molly will be the next leader. Molly, please propose a team of THREE for Mission 4 (you may put yourself on the team). Once Molly proposes her team, everybody will vote on whether or not they approve the team proposal by PMing me. If a majority approves it, the mission starts; if not, Riza will be the next leader.

Riza, if you'd like to play "STRONG LEADER" now, you'd have to do so BEFORE Molly proposes a team. Would you like to play "STRONG LEADER", Riza?

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

If Devi were not a spy she would have used OPEN UP on herself. Never mind the suspicious voting history. Essentially if Devi were a monk, she wouldn't have been a very good one.

Oh, if it makes you feel any better Molly, I would feel bitterly disappointed if it turned out our budding friendship had been formed from a foundation of lies. I'm more inclined towards Riza or Sal being the spy.

It does make me feel better, Yeti. I would hate to bitterly disappoint you. :)

I don't see a peep from Riza, so I propose Sal, Yeti and myself for the next mission. :( I'm so sad I don't get a power-prizey thing too. There are some awesome cards that have yet to come out in this game!

I'm quite sure you won't bitterly disappoint me, but then I suppose not expecting it to happen is rather what leads to bitter disappointment. It is gutting to miss out on a power isn't it? But then you did get one at the start of the game. Let's not be greedy.

I think it's important Riza sits this one out anyway, since she's the one with the power. If she were a spy and were on the mission, she could find a way to 'accidentally' misuse it and leave us guessing who was who in mission 5. This way if she is a spy, we win, and if she's not then there won't be any suspicious misfires.

This is just great. I don't trust any of you anymore.
