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.

I can't decide if I want this vote to go through in order to expose that you do, in fact, have a spy on this mission. On one hand I feel that is the only way my co-Resistance members are ever going to realize I am Resistance. But on the other hand, approving this mission team is a 100% certainty of a sabotage which would even the score 2-2.

Mission 4 Result:

miss snopes relays instructions to Aspen and Bela, who quickly run to retrieve the large tarp used earlier to rescue some of the Big Wheel riders. Meanwhile, miss snopes ventures out on the Helter Skelter slide on foot, taking great care not to slip. As quickly as she dares, she makes her way down to where the young boy dangles.

Bracing herself against the sides of the slide, she reaches out and grabs the fabric of the carpet just as it is about to tear. The boy dangles in midair for a second before he loses his grip. There is a split second of horror as the boy falls. Luckily, Aspen and Bela have managed to get back and ready the tarp just below the area. Passersby have offered to help hold it out.

The boy plummets into the tarp. There is a loud ripping sound as the middle gives way...

Mission 4 consisting of Sal, Aspen, and Bela was a FAILURE.

The team members voted as follows:
???? SUCCEED
???? SUCCEED
???? SABOTAGE

Bela, leadership will now pass to you for the next mission.

Mission 5: Carousel Calamity

Bela ran her hand down one of the wooden carousel horses, smiling to herself. It had certainly been a long time since she had ridden one of these. Upon looking around, her eye was caught by the gleaming brass rings which hung behind the counter guarded by Dorian Pivot. Shiny...

However, Bela did not have time for fun. The day had been marred as much by disaster as by heroics, and there was no telling what might happen next if she wasn't vigilant. Taking a step back, Bela watched as the young and young-at-heart boarded the carousel. Soon, it began to turn, churning out a lovely nostalgic tune as it moved.

Bela watched the ride pick up speed as the horses bobbed up and down. But something was wrong. The carousel seemed to be turning too fast. Screams of joy soon turned into screams of terror as the carousel went full-tilt, spinning with speed beyond reason. The usual mischievous smile disappeared from Dorian's face as he rushed over to the controls. Bela, alarmed, quickly sprung into action.

Mission 5 will consist of THREE team members.

Bela, the team leader, has been given one advantage to distribute to whomever she sees fit. It is:

KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON YOU - Receiver of this card may look at one team member's action (Success/Sabotage) on a mission they are on, after the results of the mission are in.

Bela, please assign this ability when you're ready, and then propose a team.

Grrr.

I'll give the card to Sal, he's the only one who hasn't gotten a card so far. Unfortunately since it's the last mission, it's useless.

I propose a team of myself, Sal, and miss snopes.

Quelle surprise.

Looks like curtains for the Boardwalk.

A repeat of the Mission 2 failure. That one was Sal, Bela and Zara. Mission 4 failure was Sal, Bela and Aspen. I know how I voted. I therefore know that one of the spies must be Sal or Bela.

Aspen? I was suspicious for a while but she wasn't on Mission 2. She also confirmed the message I'd got from using OVERHEARD CONVERSATION. And there can't have been two spies on Mission 4 as I know who the other one is.

If this team goes ahead it's another failure. If this team is vetoed and leadership passes to Aspen, then Bela can use her STRONG LEADER card to regain leadership. Vetoed again? Leadership passes to miss snopes. There isn't a single scenario where the Resistance can now win. Unless There is something obvious that I'm not seeing.

Also I think there is a limited number of times we are permitted to veto. Maybe someone could clarify on that?

At the moment it seems like ' bye-bye Boardwalk'.
