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.

The mission I proposed is right up above your own post, Bela. Don't know how you could have missed it.

Resistance, this is now the spy plan. They can afford to lose this Mission. Resistance has to pick a perfect team next Mission. They are now going to throw as much $*#% at the fan as possible to muddy the waters as much as possible. They will be willing to throw two spies under the bus to get to their goal because they only need one spy to win.

No I'm not using strong leader.
I think Bela meant your first team proposal. The one you used no confidence on.

Ok well... after glancing through most of the posts, I realize Sindy is a spy. If she is accusing me then that would be the only reason. So she won't be on the team I choose, obviously.

I don't know when I'm going to be able to long in again. I've been to the vet's twice and the 24-hour animal emergency service twice with two of my dogs twice in the past 10 days and I got home last night and one is limping now so I'll be back to the vet's in the morning.

If I can't log in again, I'm going to have to leave you with this:

I have been a spy target from the beginning of this game. Why?

Because a lot of people, even in a game context, have trouble lying about other people. I know I myself, the first two times I played as a spy, was literally almost sick to my stomach every time I had to post on the resistance thread because I knew I was going to have to lie about people. As a spy, it's much easier to take shots at someone you know has played as a spy before and thus has lied about other people in-game and you know they can handle it.

Other than taking a few token pot shots at each other these spies have focused mainly on me. That is why.

Zara, Missy, Sal, if you become leader of a new Mission team and get any good power cards, use them on me. Shell, the only reason I don't include you is because Aspen and Bela are right before you and if one of their teams goes through, that will mean the spies have won. :)

I have sent my vote in on this team, which is obviously "no."

Sorry I missed the last vote. I'm feeling a bit better and can sit at my desk for shortish periods. I try to catch up when I can and will try to do better. Am I correct in thinking that there is no team proposal currently awaiting a vote?

(Zara's alt here)

Sal, look 2 posts above you at Aspen's last post. She has made a team proposal for Mission 4, Team 2. Votes should be in by 20:55 today.

Thanks, Zara. I have been in the habit of looking to the Announcer to give the "official" notice and set the time of compliance as that has been my experience in past games. I shall have to pay closer attention to the individual player post rather than just scanning for the annoincer.'s notifaction.

This game The Announcer has let it run a little differently. I think it's because it sometimes has taken days to get a team proposed. :)
