Hello everyone. I’ll be hosting another game of Resistance, and I encourage all lurkers from the previous game(s) to come out and play! We’ll keep it simple with just gameplay and no story this time. And if you’ve never played before, feel free to jump right in, because we all need more imaginary problems to worry about. :)

The game takes place over a series of 5 "missions." The Resistance is trying to complete 3 missions successfully, while the spies are attempting to sabotage 3 missions. First one to 3 wins.

I will serve as game master. Once we get enough people to play (5-10 total), I will PM everyone their allegiance (either "Resistance" or "Spy"). If you are a "Spy," I will also PM you the names of your co-conspirators.

A "leader" will be chosen at random for the first mission. The leader has 2 important functions:
1) The leader will assign various "role" abilities to players. These are one-shot special powers a player can use to learn more information about someone.
2) The leader will assign players to the "team" for that mission.

Missions will have a varying number of players who are selected; the leader picks a team, then every player will vote on whether or not they approve the team by PMing me. Once all the votes are cast, I will post the voting results. If a majority approves the team, the mission starts. If not, the mission does not start, and the next player in line becomes the new "leader" for that round. This continues until either a mission is approved, or 5 consecutive mission teams are rejected (in which case the spies win automatically.)

Once a mission team is approved, those players will PM me their choice of action during that mission. Resistance players will ALWAYS choose to have the mission succeed by sending "Success," while spies have a choice: they can either elect to have the mission succeed (to throw off suspicion), or they can "Sabotage" the mission.

To every people, my English is not very good which can make some troubles in this kind of game. So I hope you don't mind me playing with you :D

MISSION 1

Sal is the leader for Mission 1.

Mission 1 will consist of THREE team members.

The first team leader has been given two advantages to distribute to whomever he sees fit. They are:

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Whoever receives this can force a team member on any mission to post his/her action ("Success" or "Sabotage") publicly on the thread, rather than via PM. This can be used one time, on any player, for any mission in the game.

OPINION MAKER: Receiver of this card must vote first publicly whether or not to approve a mission for the rest of the game. Must be used immediately.

Sal, please assign these abilities when you're ready. Keeping one ability for yourself is also acceptable.

I guess the first order of business is the distribution of abilities.

I will keep "In the Spotlight" and give :Opinion Make:r to Bela.

Spies beware!!! Since I have no idea where to go yet, I'm going down the line with the exception of Tyranomaster3. He's worried about his English, so I will try to give ham a mission to poke and probe get settled in before he has to select a team. Therefore, I propose a team of

Sal Iva
Sleuth Sindy
AspenK

Bela would have been next and that's how she got the Opinion Maker.
