Sign up here if you'd like to participate in the second Resistance game.  Fiction, BSam, SteelFan, Lukeington, Kybard, and Lee have claimed spots already, so we've got room for 4 more players.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out my introduction in the original thread.

This time around we'll be playing a slightly more complex variant:  Instead of attempting the five missions in the predetermined order, the leader chooses the next target as well as the mission team.  I'll go into more detail about this at the start of the game.

Assignments sent!  There are 4 Rebels and 3 Spies.

Instead of attempting missions in a predetermined order, you will get to choose a target each round.  The available targets (along with team requirements) are as follows:

Missions
Target A-2
Target B-3
Target C-3
Target D-4*
Target E-4**
*Two sabotages required to foil mission
**Must successfully complete two other missions before attempting


Leader Succession
Fiction
Lukeington
Lee
Mid-Boss
BSam
Kybard
SteelFan

Fiction is the first leader and has until 11:00PM EST tomorrow (~43 hours from now) to submit a formal mission proposal.  The proposal must include the following:
  • The target (A, B, C, or D)
  • The mission team
  • A codename for the operation
  • An objective (i.e. "raid an Imperial convoy")

The rest of the rules are just as before.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Judging by last game, it's safe to assume that SteelFan is all the spies.

So, I'm thinking we start off with a simple 2-person mission so that we can quickly root out possible spies. I will be going as I myself am not a spy, but who should I choose to go with me? If you do not suggest a person you will be put under suspicion as a spy.

I suggest you take BSam, because he made a funny joke.

Lukeington's zeal in sowing distrust in our group warms my heart. I think you should take him.

Fiction, MidBoss and Luke are clearly the spies. I think you should send me, Lee and Kybard. I also think we should do the three-person missions first and save the ones where the team needs to be half-spy to fail for last. Those missions are the ones most in our favor, and it would be silly to waste them when we are taking a blind stab. While a three-person mission is more likely to fail than a two-person mission, in the long run it's best of five and I think that's the way to go.

Plus, since it's all just guessing, a three-person mission also increases the chances of two spies going which, on a mission where only one is needed, is not good for the spies (I speak from experience.) Either you roll the dice completely and risk allowing a mission with two spies to fail or reveal too much by double-sabotaging a single-sabotage mission, or you risk people finding the hidden meaning in your talk if you decide to try to send a message (unless they are all horribly incompetent. *cough*)

I think...

I agree with fatty, Fiction is obviously a spy, and whoever he brings on his first two agent mission will no doubt be cast into doubt when he sabotages his own mission.
Not to mention whoever suggests them will also be suspicious. It's all part of his plan.

But steelfan is obviously a spy also, so now I don't know what to think!

Steelfan is obviamusly a spy.

I didn't pick you to go on you missions, I picked you to be spies so the opposite. Though, honestly, MidBoss may not be, it just seemed off to only name two of three.

You and Luke, though? Way spies.

he may be a spy, but what SteelFan says about the advantage of starting with the three-person mission makes sense to me.

if you're set on two people, though, take SteelFan.

Just to be clear, while normally I think you would have to see a mission before coming to any judgments, I will be voting no on anything with Fiction or Luke in it, even if I am too, until I see a reason to think they aren't spies. I am not opposed to changing my mind as more evidence comes up, but Luke asking not to go on the mission reeks to high heaven.

Any rebel wants to be on every mission, because at the end of the day they're the only person they know isn't a spy. The only reason I could see for Luke to try to get off a mission where Fiction has announced he will be the first team member is that he knows there is already going to be a spy, Fiction, and they would be forced into either trying a risky clue drop to the other guy in the thread, or conceding the mission, as attempting to sabotage then seeing the other guy did too leaves no ambiguity, everyone would know they are two of the three spies and the game would basically be over before it began.

All I agree with is that we should save the 2 person mission for later, because as Steelfan says it is the best opportunity we have to guarantee a successful mission.

Welp, that's all three of Steelfan's choices agreeing to put off my proposal. Any other opinions?
