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.

My thanks to you, sindy, Bela, and shell, for your wishes.

Anyway, things are going to be confusing here. I think we should go step by step in picking a team. Let's see.

1st, Sal and shell must be on team because they had a link to each other by the confirmation of sal.

Right now, I'm trying to take everyone's ideas into consideration. It's a hard decision and I will have to make it soon, but I'm hoping to still hear from everyone or nearly everyone.

Answers for Zara:

Obviously I can't answer the question for shell.

As far as the question for me, I'd like to see a new face on a team. Neither you nor Missy have had a chance yet and I'd like to see one of those two on the team. Other than that, I see several selections (thanks everyone who has suggested something) that look like they could be good also. Sindy's looks good and so do Ty's as does shell's modifications of those teams.

Answer to the rhetorical question: The game has made you paranoid.

Oops, posted in the wrong skin again and posted only half of what I wanted to say.

So I shall try again.

@ Zara, for my change to Sindy's team I choose Sal for the reason Ty stated above. I chose to remove Ty because I feel he is most resistance. I think Sindy is too, and am not sure about Aspen one way or another. But if mission one was a true team of all Resistance, this mission should succeed.

For Ty's team I removed myself and put Sindy in my place. Mainly because I did not want Bela,Sal, Aspen to be all together on the same team. I stayed away from you and Missy because I thought this team might expose one spy. Adding either of you in adds a wild card into the scenerio.

I'm not one of these people who feel the only good team is one that is all resistance. Next two rounds we need to have 5 members. It is only going to get harder to exclude spys. If we can out one here, then mission 4s team selections might be easier.

Shell: Did you mean to make this statement: "I chose to remove Ty because I feel he is most resistance."?

Aaargh, I don't know any more; for my final pick I'm sticking with my suggestion of (Sal, Aspen, Missy, Bela). I guess I'm going to be sitting around twiddling my thumbs till OC or OPEN UP is out. :/

There's a version of this game without any power cards too. Eep! XD

Again, I'm totally volunteering to be offered OC/OPEN UP or have it used on me. It'll make M2 results that much clearer, but I should learn something if you shy away from using it on me too. :D

Thanks to shell and Sal for clarifying things. And lol Sal, okay - but let’s not pretend that it doesn’t happen ; )

I find myself agreeing with shell in regard to Ty and Sindy. I’ve also re-read much of the ‘case’ against Aspen and think it may well be a red herring, as Sindy suggested at one point. I feel that, overall, the reasons given by shell are pretty convincing and would be willing to support her suggestion of: Sal, Sindy, Aspen and shell.

*Looks over shoulder to see if she is being followed. Walks a little faster, looks over shoulder again. Turns right, looks all around, slows down trying to look calm and collected. Turns left , walks faster again while looking over shoulder for spies. Realizes she is totally lost and jumping at her own shadow.*

Yep Sal, I'm definitely feeling the paranoia.

Well, whatever team Sal picks at the point I will vote yes to. Whatever happens we should at least have more information to go on.
