The Resistance: Lurker Edition

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.

Happy belated birthday Ty.

I have been reading the thread and everyone's suggestions. I have however, found it hard to follow some of them because (don't tell her I said this because I love her dearly) the announcer has sometimes indicated Missions 2 or Mission 3 and then not follow it with a team number. I am totally confused as to some of them. I wouldn't care but some of you are numbering the teams, which is perfectly understandable, but I can't seem to be sure which is which.
Since I have tried to be cooperative this entire game, I wish that those of you who have suggestions (which right now, I'm sure are better than any of mine) PLEASE just paste and copy them on the thread so I'm sure that I'm looking at the teams YOU want to suggest. I thank you all for your help in advance.

Bela suggested: Sal, Missy, Aspen, and Bela

Sindy suggested: Ty, Sindy, Aspen & Shell

*I think Ty suggested this but anyone please correct me if I'm wrong here:

shell, Ty, Sal & Bela (but remove either he or Bela & replace with someone else)

Thanks, Sal, for your wish.

And thanks, missy, for your copy. That's my suggestion. But it's only for the case you are willing to take risk with this mission. I really don't like it.

I have looked over the first two missions and tried to make some headway in picking a team. I am still uncertain and find things that I like about each team. I am wondering if everyone would like to weigh in? Pick one of the three teams proposed, pick one of your own, but I'm looking for a consensus, if possible.

A belated happy birthday to you, Ty! :D

I'll also say that if you feel pretty confident about shell, you could swap her out for Missy in the team of (Sal, Aspen, Missy, Bela) I suggested. However, that might be too close to the team of (Sal, shell, Ty, Bela) that failed. If you all prefer that I stay off this team, I would suggest a team of (Sal, shell, Aspen, Missy), although I'd *really* prefer to be on the team (I'm picking one of Missy and Zara in this case, but I'd prefer not having to do that).

shell, what team would *you*suggest?

Sorry I missed your Birthday Ty. Hope it was a happy one!

Honestly Bela, I don't know. I'm thinking I like Ty or Sindy the best but maybe change
Sindy's to

Sal, Sindy, Aspen, & Shell

Or Ty's to

Ty, Sal, Bela, Sindy

Question for shell: any particular reason(s) for your selections?

Question for Sal: if absolutely no-one were here to advise you, what would your team selection be?

Rhetorical question: why do these last 3 posts from Sal, Bela and shell sound like across-the-table-talk between spies?
