After years of anticipation, the Battery Boardwalk has finally opened its doors to the general public. The residents of Sleuthville come streaming in through the ticket booth--a line stretching as far as the eye can see. Among those gaining entry is a group of elite detectives with complimentary day passes to the attractions, invited specifically to keep an eye on things. A week prior to opening, the higher-ups at the Boardwalk had received anonymous threats of sabotage and murder if the Boardwalk was not torn down immediately. However, the proprietor was not one to submit to intimidation. Thus, on opening day, a group of highly-ranked detectives were tasked with keeping the park safe.

Unfortunately, there have been rumors floating around that some in the ranks of the elite had been approached by the mysterious threat-maker, and were now working for him to guarantee the day would end in disaster. It is said only those who turned to the dark side knew who the others were; everyone else had to eye each other with suspicion and make their own judgements. Although the team has been compromised, there is no time to vet and assemble another one on such short notice. Yet the day is young and there are plenty of opportunities to ensure opening day is a success.

The detectives’ job this fine day is to make the rounds of the park and keep an eye out for any suspicious or potentially dangerous activities. If opening day goes off without a hitch, the Boardwalk is sure to bring in millions, and the detectives would stand to receive a substantial cut for their services. But if it were to fail, then Sleuthville would be plunged into financial ruin and return to the days of never-ending guilty clients and exorbitant Shady fees. Oh no.

Will the Battery Boardwalk’s grand opening be an unparalleled success, or will it go down in flames accompanied by nothing but the screams of disappointed visitors? Stay tuned to find out in this installment of The Resistance.

It would be illogical to put 2 spies on a team. Plus Miss Snopes is a spy. So that only leaves one other person.

Sal, I can agree with you on typing stuff out while you've still got it clear in your own head so that you don't forget it, but I'd still love to see that rewrite. I don't think you've outlined where you stand anywhere here yet (I might have missed it, I'll be re-reading the whole thing again anyway so I'll keep an eye out for it then), although you have congratulated us numerous times on being so very confusing (well, the newer Resistance players at least :P) - saying that you're not sure who's who in game of Resistance is not telling us where you stand, everybody (Resistance) started there!

I'll try to go through everything now and figure out what I'm trying to get across. If anybody else has any thoughts, please, add them.

I believe that everyone has voted as their allegiance should indicate. I think that the Resistance has voted yes and the spies have voted no. We shall soon see.

You' have the time stamp, you'll have to go back to see the way people voted and you'll know what I think.

Sal, I have been solidly Resistance the whole game. You may be wary of what I say, and sure, I can say one thing and do another. But my actions, my votes, at every point has been Resistance because I am Resistance.

Sal, I have been solidly Resistance the whole game. You may be wary of what I say, and sure, I *can* say one thing and do another. However, my actions, my votes, this entire game have been firmly Resistance. I'm not comfortable sending a random team first thing every mission, so I vote NO. I don't trust teams all that easily, especially not the very first proposals.

I'd like to end the game with this mission being the Resistance's third win. I think the team we should go with now is a team of miss snopes, Sal, and Bela. I'd posted what I knew yesterday, and if I had to form a team, I'd have to pick between you and Zara, and Aspen and snopes. I don't have much at all to go on with that pick, but I think it's our best bet for now. I know you think Aspen is more likely to be Resistance because your mission with her was a success, and I shouldn't be pointing fingers when Mission 1 was the same with us, but like you said yourself, that is a great way for a spy to remain hidden and appear trustworthy. I don't know why you lot think I might be a spy; when I'm a spy, I sabotage everything, every chance I get! I know that's not the best thing to say when I'm trying to get on a team, but I'm very serious about that. I'll remind you Sal, to have some faith (and I really really hope you're not pulling a long con!) :D
