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.

I can't thank you all enough. I have always said that Sleuth is the finest community around. You good folks have proved it again. I don't know that I can put into words how much I appreciate your kindness and how touched I am by your good hearts. Thank you all, so very much. I am getting so that sometimes I can sit for a couple of minutes and will try to get this game moving again as soon as possible. I'm hoping for the morning at worst, but we shall see. You are all such good and decent people, I am truly moved. :)

Still hurting but I am going to do this from the TV (couch). I propose a team of:

Sal (most requests)
Zara (fewest requests)
Sindy
Bela

I think we had better see something of Zara and miss snopes before the last round, so I chose one.

Good to see you back Sal - hope your back is better : )

Sadly I will have to vote against this team because of my suspicions re Bela as a spy (sorry).

Zara, I respect your thoughts. I tried to incorporate some of everyone's opinions and one of my own. I tend to think that we learn more by confronting than by avoiding, but if I had a strong feeling, as you evidently do, I'd probably do the same thing.

I am a bit better and I can now be somewhat comfortable enough to do this from the couch. I tried putting a pillow and blanket on my office chair to use the PC but I' m not ready for that yet. However, one of my cats seems to like it just fine.

Your cats must be very cute, Sal. And hope you feel better very soon.

I am thinking about your proposal. Normally, I would reject this team. However, I would like to hear from the others before I make the decision. Sorry :(

Your cat is probably wondering why you didn't pad the chair for it a long time ago.

I have a feeling this team might be a spy riddled team, but I'm going to vote Yes. I'm curious as to what will happen. I think this team can tell us alot.

Also just to let you all know, it appears I am going to be chaperoning my daughters band camp this year. I will be in an area that has bad reception. I will be leaving August 6 and will be back on the 11th.
