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.

I'm going to have to agree with Aspen on this one. Of course, she is on the team and could be a spy hoping we all approve this team so she can sabotage it.

Why did I skip Ty?

Why did I put my pants (shorts) on this morning? Because I was pretty sure I'd be arrested at the golf course if I didn't. But it was a real reason.

I had no idea that Ty had ever played this game before and I knew he was concerned about his English. I thought I would give him a round to watch, poke and probe, a chance to get comfortable. As a member of the Resistance I realize that it's natural to be suspicious of everyone, but there has to be a starting point.

However you have, I think, convinced me that I too should vote "NO". If you are more comfortable with another team, then let's do it.

For the first team, I would say I agree with Zara. There is no reason to disapprove it (Actually there is one which is the exclusion of Sal on me :D). I don't think it's good idea to show up a very detail analysis about any plan now because I view it as trying to direct people without any thing based on (it looks like a distraction). The only thing I can say is that this first mission will favor us, the resistance, even if it fails (which I think impossible to happen although ironically, it's better for us to see this mission fail). So, I'm gonna say YES for the 1st team.

For Sal's unreasonable picking up for the 1st team (excluding me), I feel so strange too. So I understand Sindy's opinion. I will also keep an eye on him and even people in the first team he picked too.

Hey Ty, there's nothing wrong with your English. :)

My apologies.

I can communicate with formal or a little informal English, Sal. But some phrases or words you guys use I might not understand. And sometimes, I find myself make people to misunderstand my idea. So that's the point. (still don't know if you get my point exactly or not. @@)

Ty, my babci was from Poland. She spoke broken English but I understood her perfectly. If I say anything that's not clear to you, speak up and I'll do my best to better explain.
