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.

It's OK for Sal to use the card on me, Sindy. I am totally fine with it. However, may I ask why you want him using the card on me?

Why do you want him to use it on Bela or Shell? Why is the sky blue? That's just where my curiosity lies. The choice is up to Sal. I'm just voicing my opinion.

*If* Sal is a spy and there was another spy on the team, of course he's going to pick whoever is *not* his spy partner. Shell hardly moves the needle on my spy detector (although I realize just because she's been quiet doesn't mean she's not a spy). So, if you didn't sabotage the mission, that will be a strong indication (to me at least) of who did (Bela). Or maybe Bela's a spy and put all three spies on her team. That would be an unexpected move and therefore good spy cover.

The 1st and the most important reason is because I know myself a resistance (lol). But you might find it unreliable but I must believe myself so it's obviously that I will want to check the 2 others.

You might also consider the second reason which is I am the member of the 1st team. I know it's not certain that I am resistance to you but at least I think it's better than people come from nowhere.

The third reason is shell is going to gain her power. And it might help a lot if she is a resistance. So to know her a resistance for sure will make things much better that we have a strong base to move on.

But as I said, it's OK for me if Sal wants to check me. I just worry that if so, we will a bit waste the power.

So at least one of Ty, Bela and shell is a spy. OVERHEARD CONVERSATION would be a wonderful power right now, unless it went to a spy.

Come on Sal, I'm chomping at the bit to put my two cents worth in. But I really need to see what your next step will be and why.

Ooh, it'd be great if we could check on shell. She is picking the next team and distributing powers and all, and this is info Sal will get via PM; that link will tell us a few things in time too.

So the info is PM'd? Well, that makes it pretty useless ultimately. I thought it would be posted. :/
