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.

OOH, POWERS!! I've never had powers before. :D

I'm going to give KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON YOU to Sal. I'll keep NO CONFIDENCE for myself. Sal, I believe you're Resistance so this is my olive branch of trust to you. If you're a spy you'll have a hard time explaining why you don't want to use it when we all know you should. :)

I propose for my team Sal, Ty, myself and Aspen K.

Let the debate begin!

Sindy has given Sal KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON YOU.

It is now time for the players to vote to either approve or reject this mission proposal. When you do vote, please send me a PM stating "Mission 2, Team 1: YES/NO." 24 hours.

@Ty

There *is* a reason a spy would not want two spies on the same team. How do you (as a spy) know which one should vote SABOTAGE? You can't communicate during the game, so if you're a spy on a team with another spy you run the risk of both of you voting SABOTAGE and outing two spies at once.

On the flip side, putting another spy on a team with yourself can be good cover if you both lay low the first mission. HOWEVER, you only have five missions to win 3 out of 5 so it's always risky to make the decision to not take the opportunity to sabotage a mission when you have the chance.

I know it, Sindy. And everybody here knows it too, I believe. What I wanna say is you based on that point to suspect people but you, yourself, are the one whom that reason points to.

For announcer: I have a question: are those cards above single use or multi uses?

Thus explaining why the universe has never favored me with powers before...

Ty, I'm pretty sure they are single use cards.

Well, Ty, here we are with the same players so if I'm a spy I'm potentially putting myself on yet another team with another spy and running the risk of outing two spies at once or throwing yet another mission by "laying low."
