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.

It's unfair, Sindy. Please be generous :(

So either everyone was Resistance or there was ONLY one spy on the team.

Ooh, Missy. Ask for my allegiance! Pick me! Pick me!

Oh, sorry. Zara, ask to learn my allegiance. Pick me! Pick me!

Oh, shoot. You can't. You have to pick between Shell or Missy, or you could give the card to Missy and she can learn my allegiance.

I'm shutting up now.

(Zara's alt here)

I'm on a course this morning but will be back on in a few hours. Some serious thinking to do in the meantime.

Being Resistance, I know that there was one spy on the last team. I have a strong sense of who that is.

I will therefore keep Establish Confidence for myself and use it on the person I think is most likely to be the Spy. I will give Overheard Conversation to another player. I hope they might use it on me in order to establish - once and for all - that I am Resistance, but the choice is theirs.

I feel that the reasoning behind my decisions (below) must be fairly apparent, but if anyone would like a more detailed explanation, I’ll be happy to provide one.

Mr Announcer, I am keeping ESTABLISH CONFIDENCE and would like to use it on Bela.

I will give OVERHEARD CONVERSATION to miss snopes.

My apologies - I clearly misread the instructions for ESTABLISH CONFIDENCE. Mr Announcer, strike out my previous decision.

___________________________

I wish to keep ESTABLISH CONFIDENCE and will give this to Sal.

I am still giving OVERHEARD CONVERSATION to miss snopes.

Zara has chosen to ESTABLISH CONFIDENCE with Sal. I will PM Sal with Zara's allegiance.

Zara has chosen to give OVERHEARD CONVERSATION to miss snopes. Once miss snopes chooses the person she wants to use it on (Zara or Sal), I will PM her with that person's allegiance.

I wish to use OVERHEARD CONVERSATION on Sal.

I have 100% confidence in Zara's allegiance as Resistance but as she is revealing her allegiance to Sal, my verifying his allegiance will verify hers in a roundabout way.
