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.

What I'm trying to say is that while I suspect Sal is a spy, I can't afford to put him in the spy column definitely because in doing so I may let an as yet undetected spy through the net. There's just not enough information out there. Hence my position from the very beginning that sending out a few teams on the first mission doesn't hurt and can in fact be helpful in gathering information.

Sindy has used NO CONFIDENCE. Leadership has moved on to Aspen. Aspen, please propose a team of four people.

Hmm. I kinda feel like I have been seeing the same names repeated and I want to mix things up a bit. Of course I will chose myself, I know I can trust me, but who else.

I guess I will go down the line from myself. I have yet to make any observations about shell marple, so that could be good. Bela kinda strikes me as the spy type, but last game she acted the same way and she was resistance so I have got a good feeling about her. I pick a team of Bela, Shell Marple, and myself.

Just wake up.

And seem we have a big chaos here. It's like you wake up and see the world changes dramatically just after a night. Lol
