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.

So, he's essentially admitted that's how he knew who was going to vote SABOTAGE on the team he was on with Bela.

I may have gotten some of my facts about the teams wrong - I don't have time to back and reread everything. If I have my apologies, but the part about the strategy to determine who will sabotage and Ty's post on the message board are solid.

This is probably the last opportunity I will have to post today.

Steady on Resistance.

The results of the vote on Aspen's MISSION 4 TEAM 2 Proposal are in.

Aspen proposed a team of
-Aspen
-Bela
-Ty
-Zara
-miss snopes

The mission proposal has been REJECTED by a vote of 6-2. The votes are as follows.

Sal Iva NO
Tyranomaster3 NO
Sleuth Sindy NO
AspenK YES
Bela Talbot III YES
shell marple NO
Zara Bande NO
miss snopes NO

Leadership will now move on to Bela, unless shell wishes to use STRONG LEADER.

After that has been decided, will the next leader please propose a team of five people. Then everyone must PM me "Mission 4, Team 3: YES/NO" within 24 hours after the proposal.

Since I won't be getting the power cards for the next mission, will the power-getting leader please consider giving me an OC card (provided that one is given out)? I would use it on shell. If an OPEN UP card comes out and I'm assigned it, I would probably reveal my allegiance to Missy or shell. (Do you guys have any other suggestions? I think if we talk about it and reach a consensus, a spy first leader would have to sweat a little to explain why they would want to assign it any other way) I'll try to log in again in an hour or an hour and a half; what does everybody think of a team of Bela, miss snopes, Aspen, shell, and Sal? This is NOT my official proposal, I'll post that in an hour or so.

I wanted to be first leader really badly, shell. Plus I was on a team; the Resistance and spies are shunning me alike (except for Aspen, which I will count as a Resistance-y thing. I think a spy wouldn't take that chance on a pariah, they'd be trying to draw as little attention to themselves (through connections to other spy candidates) as possible). I didn't think it would be voted through anyway, but a few votes have surprised me before, so I took a chance.

I just LOL'd a little on noticing Sindh's Freudian slip in her 03:40 post today: Ty being a reluctant spy and not wanting to falsely accuse (shell) of being a spy. Implying that he wouldn't be falsely accusing you (Sindy) of being a spy after reluctant-spy-ly revealing himself to you? XD. If this is actually something, it would absolutely redeem this game for me. 😂

I know what I think of that team but I'm not saying it now. The spies already know who each other are and the way everyone has talked about their votes this entire game on the boards, they've known exactly how to play everything, almost every time.

Ty, if you were to propose a 5 person team right now, who would you put on it?

Sorry, been busy. Hmn interesting choice.
Going back under rock I crawled out from and pull out hair, trying to get this figured out.
A spy can hide during this mission so easily only to get a spot on mission 5 and pull out the win for the spies. If I feel there is only one spy on this team I might vote for it, I really need to find out about Sindy if I could get a card that would reveal her to me then it would help in making team 5 selection and the other person who would reveal needed information to me would be Bela.
