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 results of the vote on shell's MISSION 4 TEAM 4 Proposal are in.

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

The mission proposal has been REJECTED by a vote of 5-3. The votes are as follows.

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

Leadership will now move on to Zara, 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 5: YES/NO" within 24 hours after the proposal.

Yes I do want to use strong leader.

That team was meant to fail, but it was Missy I expected the yes vote from, not Zara.

Now for an explanation of my team choice last time. I knew Sindy,Bela, and Sal would vote no. Mainly because they were not on the team. Resitance would vote no for obvious reasons and spys would vote no because a yes vote would be like waving a red flag saying spy right here.
Ty and Aspen's votes I was unsure of but thought it would be nice if they voted yes.
It was Missy and Zara that I had reservations about. Mostly Missy, she has gone through this whole game with hardly anyone considering her as a spy. I was hoping to out her with this team. Instead it was Zara with the yes vote.

Unless someone can convince me I'm wrong I will be offering the team of players who voted no. I'll do that later today to give people a chance to argue their points.

To be honest, there was the slimest of chances that team was a clean team. That's why I held off on my vote for awhile. But when Ty asked me to tell him how to vote, that only confirmed my suspicions that he was a spy. Ty you are intelligent and articulate, you have been able to come to your own conclusions, so you wanting me to tell you how to vote seemed rather fishy.
From the beginning I tried to clue in my fellow resistance. I needed a team that "made sense" not I needed a team that would succeed.
I actually really believed in Zara's team choice, only Missy had me worried. So I pretty much said.. this team will fail and then Zara can present the team and we will all have to vote Yes on it if the Resistance had even a slim chance of staying alive to fight another battle with a 5th mission.

Hey everybody! I have the rest of today and part of tomorrow morning off, and a very messy Resistance situation that I have had to neglect for a while now. I've been written off as a filthy spy. Let's go!

And how exactly have I written you off as a filthy spy when I am proposing you to go on this fifth team? One that if the resistance vote no to will cause the spies to win by default. Maybe devote some time to reread the three post I posted directly above you.

I guess this was vague enough to not get my thoughts across.

*Unless someone can convince me I'm wrong I will be offering the team of players who voted no. I'll do that later today to give people a chance to argue their points. *

That will be a team of Sal, Bela, Sindy, shell, miss snopes. I just didn't want to list the names because it is not my official proposal at the moment. I want to give everyone a chance to weigh in before I make it official.

Shell, I was asking you about your thought so I can know how to deal with you, not to vote. Because as I said, you are one of my suspects. And I know clearly that you are holding the strong leader. That means you can totally control the team you want and force all of us to accept what you want. So what I asked you is for sure if we have any chance to win this game. Because if you are a spy, we are done. Actually, at that time, I still had a very little hope that you will forget to use strong leader (if you are a spy) so we can have 1 more chance. But it comes obviously that you don't :D

OK! So if you are a spy, nothing else to say. We lose. The only hope is you are a resistance so we can have 1 more chance. At this point, hope is only thing I have. Go, shell!
