Welcome to Resistance

Set in the near future, The Resistance pits a small group of resistance fighters against a powerful and corrupt government. The resistance has launched a series of bold and daring missions to bring the governement to its knees. Unfortunately spies have infiltrated the resistance ranks, ready to sabotage the carefully crafted plans. Even a single spy can take down a resistance mission team, choose your teams carefully or forever lose your chance for freedom. This is a basic BETA game to see how the card game translates into a forum environment.

THE RULES
- During "Night" actions the leader will know who he is
- The Leader will choose a # of his fellow players to be in the mission.
- The participants will then vote on the team that the leader has put together. Place votes in Bold please unvote if you wish to change your vote.

- If the vote hits the simple majority it will go to night. If the team goes (3 vote yes) then the participants will do the night action of passing or failing the mission. Please note it takes ONLY ONE FAIL to fail the mission. Failed missions are good for the government spies.

- Do NOT contact players outside the game thread that goes for both factions.

-Don't type in red that is my color.

-I'm not going to have a strict clock for this because we are all in Grizz's game but it should give us something to do while waiting for people to do night actions.

- Feel free to announce your faction as you wish although who the hell would admit to being a spy.

Vote: Yes

Unvote Yes
Vote No

1. RobS
2. Renji
3. Dr. Gonzo
4. Titan Hope
5. JRD

There are 3 Resistance and 2 Government spies

The number of players that go on the mission by round
Round 1: 2 players
Round 2: 3 players
Round 3: 3 players
Round 4: 2 players
Round 5: 3 players

If you have any questions let me know. If you didn't receive your faction let me know.

I am resistance. **** the spies.

jrdrylie
05-14-2013, 06:59 PM
Down with the Government!

Also, I think I need to go watch those videos to see what the heck is going on.

TitanHope
05-14-2013, 07:11 PM
Down with the establishment!

Are we told who the leader is/was?

Rob S
05-14-2013, 07:14 PM
I'd assume the leader knows who he is. I doubt we would know though until he makes his selections or chooses to reveal himself.

Brothgar
05-14-2013, 07:18 PM
The leader is something that is made public every player regardless of affiliation can be the leader. As soon as you are ready feel free to announce your team.

TitanHope
05-14-2013, 07:21 PM
Ok, so what do we do now? We have no Leader, and no participants. Are we voting on a Leader now? And then he'll choose two guys tonight, and we'll vote on whether they go on the mission or not tomorrow. Right?

Brothgar
05-14-2013, 07:22 PM
Rob S is the leader for round 1 he must select 2 player which may include himself to go on mission 1

jrdrylie
05-14-2013, 07:24 PM
So does the leader have to go on the mission?

Rob S
05-14-2013, 07:26 PM
Oh. I assumed I could get some discussion going first without people knowing that I'm leader.....

Well, I'm good so I will definitely be going on the mission. The other 2 joining me are TBD. If any of you fellow good guys have a decent power, let me know.

TitanHope
05-14-2013, 07:26 PM
Take me, Rob! We'll do work!

TitanHope
05-14-2013, 07:28 PM
I don't think any of us have powers. I'm just a member of the resistance.

Rob S
05-14-2013, 07:29 PM
I don't think any of us have powers. I'm just a member of the resistance.

You have passed test #1. I am aware it is likely nobody has powers. Just seeing if anyone would slip up. You will likely be joining me.

Brothgar
05-14-2013, 07:35 PM
In Round 1 you only choose one other person to go on the mission.

Round 1: 2 players
Round 2: 3 players
Round 3: 3 players
Round 4: 2 players
Round 5: 3 players

Rob S
05-14-2013, 07:37 PM
Well, I won't be making a decision until we hear from everyone.

Rob S
05-14-2013, 07:45 PM
So, Broth.... assuming I am good (which I am) if TH and I go on mission and fail, that would mean TH is government, right?

Brothgar
05-14-2013, 07:46 PM
So, Broth.... assuming I am good (which I am) if TH and I go on mission and fail, that would mean TH is government, right?

In that situation yes that would be a valid assumption as it takes a special kind of broth up to fail a mission as the resistance.

Rob S
05-14-2013, 07:52 PM
So, do people want to wait for Renji and Gonzo to make an appearance or are they comfortable with TH and I going now? I don't really care either way.

TitanHope
05-14-2013, 08:08 PM
Renji hasn't posted in the Marvel game, and was replaced in the Dexter game. JR has been around, and Gonzo can't stay quiet forever.

For Team Rob and TH, I Vote: Yes

Gay Ork Wang
05-14-2013, 08:11 PM
well im not in the marvel game so thats that

Gay Ork Wang
05-14-2013, 08:12 PM
Ill vote no on that team. We need to have the highest chances of getting in Resistance member. Obviously Rob is going to pick himself. Since I know im an resistance player, I should be the other one.

So any team without me is going to be a No.

I gotta go to bed now, its 3 am. Ill chime in when im back

jrdrylie
05-14-2013, 08:18 PM
What does voting no on the mission count as? If we win the first mission, we could just vote no the rest of the time. We wouldn't get three successes but the spies wouldn't get any failures.

TitanHope
05-14-2013, 08:23 PM
If we can't get a consensus, then I believe the next leader gets promoted and Rob gets demoted. He then picks his team, and we vote again. If we can't get a consensus that time, then the mission fails and the spies get the round.

Right, Broth?

Gay Ork Wang
05-14-2013, 08:26 PM
if its anything like the real game, if we vote no on a mission team, the next guy gets to be the leader. If we vote no 5 times on the mission team, we would lose the game, spies win.

Brothgar
05-14-2013, 08:31 PM

Right, Broth?

If at any point there are three no votes Rob's turn at leader is then moved to the next person in line. Even if it goes Rob is only a leader for one turn until everyone gets a shot as leader. Also if there are 5 no votes in a row then the Spies win automatically

Brothgar
05-14-2013, 08:41 PM

Exactly this. Also you can't technically vote until RobS makes his choice official.

Rob S
05-14-2013, 08:44 PM
Broth, how many missions need to be failed for the resistance to lose the game?

jrdrylie
05-14-2013, 08:44 PM
I think it is first to three wins.

TitanHope
05-14-2013, 08:45 PM
5? Oh thank goodness.

The spies undoubtedly want to be a part of the team the first time around. If I were them, I'd vote to pass it so everyone would think me good and vote me in every time. Then when the 3rd person gets added, vote no. They'll assume the new person was the bad guy. Then when it goes back to 2 people, vote no and win 3-1 for the spies. It's of the utmost importance that they get a guy in this round cause they could win it that way.

Or maybe that strategy is out the window for them now with this post.

Brothgar
05-14-2013, 08:47 PM
I think it is first to three wins.

Yes the first team to three successes or three fails wins the game. AKA best of 5

Rob S
05-14-2013, 08:49 PM
Well, I'm definitely good. I am taking TH with me on mission and I want to go.

vote: Yes

TitanHope
05-14-2013, 08:54 PM
Vote: Yes

I think this will come out a success regardless, so we shouldn't place too much value on this.

Rob S
05-14-2013, 09:03 PM
Send us on our way, JR. I know you are around!

jrdrylie
05-14-2013, 09:04 PM
Well, I don't know if either of you are spies. But you aren't dumb enough to fail it the first time around so I'll take the easy win.

vote yes

Brothgar
05-14-2013, 09:13 PM
VOTE TEAM TITAN HOPE AND ROBS


Yes = 3 (RobS, TH, JR)
No = 0

The team passes TH and RobS should send their pass or fails to me ASAP

Brothgar
05-14-2013, 09:29 PM
The team of RobS and TH attempted to infiltrate and hack the government's computer mainframe as the walk into the long corridor with white walls and stainless steel floors the TH punches the guards in the face incapacitating them instantly. Rob picks the lock and both enter the mainframe and throw in the powerful electromagnet and attempt to turn it on...


http://www.therestaurantexpert.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/enjoy-your-success.jpg

wiping all debt from the mainframe crippling the government's income for several months as they go through all the paper work. Good job but the fight has only started.

Success: 1
Fail: 0
jrdrylie is the leader of this round this is a three person round.

jrdrylie
05-14-2013, 09:33 PM
I'm the leader. Who wants it?

Rob S
05-14-2013, 09:34 PM
Well, I'm good. I'm pretty sure TH is also good unless he voted to pass the mission as a cover.

jrdrylie
05-14-2013, 09:36 PM
Well, I'm good. I'm pretty sure TH is also good unless he voted to pass the mission as a cover.

If one of you is a spy, that is the smart move.

TitanHope
05-14-2013, 09:46 PM
Its a 3 Round, so JR undoubtedly will want to go. Both Rob and I will want to go as well.

Also, how long do we want to wait on Gonzo?

jrdrylie
05-14-2013, 09:54 PM

Interesting... The fact that you guys succeeded in the mission doesn't mean you are both resistance. Watching the videos in the sign up thread, spies voted to pass the first mission.

Rob S

I mean, the assumption that we both want to go would still be correct, spy or not.

Yes but I'm not sure I'm comfortable with both of you going. One of you could be a spy, vote to fail, and make me look like a spy. I got the worst mission to be the leader.

TitanHope
05-14-2013, 10:19 PM
Yeah, its tricky. This is why I said the first mission would succeed and we couldn't take much from it. Both sides would vote yes.

Dr. Gonzo
05-15-2013, 12:10 AM
Just got done work. Good work TH and Rob on the pass.

jrdrylie
05-15-2013, 06:42 AM
My deciscion is made. I will go on this mission with Renji and TH.

Gay Ork Wang
05-15-2013, 06:52 AM
The thing is this:

Spys rarely fail the first mission. So no inconclusive information can be gotten from the first round.

For me jrd and TH going on the mission, id have to wait before voting on seeing how the others act.

Brothgar
05-15-2013, 07:30 AM
Renji JR and TH is the team feel free to vote.

jrdrylie
05-15-2013, 07:38 AM
I'm the leader of this mission so of course I'm voting yes

Vote Yes

Rob S
05-15-2013, 08:37 AM
I know this mission will fail because I am good.

vote: no

Brothgar

I liked the way you think Rob. I'm not saying I believe you, but I like the way you think.

Dr. Gonzo
05-15-2013, 11:45 AM
I don't trust Renji. He is a sneaky bastard. I am voting no.

Gay Ork Wang
05-15-2013, 12:04 PM
i have never played a game where everyone votes after each other. usually you vote simultaneous. was this a broth up?

Brothgar

No as this would be really hard to do in a forum environment unless I added yet another night action. I may try that in a future game but in this beta version I'm just going to try it like Mafia.

Also

Yes (1) - JR
No (2) - Gonzo, Rob

TitanHope
05-15-2013, 12:52 PM
Why choose Renji and me, JR?

jrdrylie
05-15-2013, 12:55 PM
Why choose Renji and me, JR?

I only wanted to pick one of you and Rob. Neither of you had given me anything so it was random. I chose Renji over Gonzo purley because I didn't like how Gonzo didn't post until about four hours into the game. Very unlike him.

Dr. Gonzo
05-15-2013, 01:00 PM

I was at work you asshole! I didn't post in the Marvel thread either.

Dr. Gonzo
05-15-2013, 01:01 PM
Also will people keep thinking I am bad if I don't post a ton? Every game that happens I get accused of being bad. If I were actually bad I would make an effort to ******* post and not remain silent. When I dont post there is a reason.

jrdrylie
05-15-2013, 01:18 PM

just felt like it is something extremely huge in the game

Dr. Gonzo
05-15-2013, 03:43 PM
To speed this game I am changing my no vote to yes. I am on to you though Renji.

Brothgar
05-15-2013, 03:53 PM
Yes (2) - JR, Gonzo
No (2) - Rob Renji

Still need another vote

Gay Ork Wang
05-15-2013, 03:54 PM
Vote: No

Gonzo has to be evil. There is no reason for a good person to ever vote yes if he isnt on the team with 3 people only. that means he is bad and knows the other guy he is with is on the team. So the mission is definitely going to fail.

TitanHope
05-15-2013, 04:13 PM
Ok, yeah I'll vote No .

Rob S
05-15-2013, 04:15 PM

I know I am good. And I feel somewhat confident in you. TH isn't a bad 3rd wheel. I'm up in the air between him and JR.

Gay Ork Wang
05-15-2013, 05:11 PM
well im pretty confident you are good. if we actually say Gonzo is bad, we win this game anyways.

Rob S
05-15-2013, 05:14 PM
well im pretty confident you are good. if we actually say Gonzo is bad, we win this game anyways.

This is true. I mean, Gonzo has to be bad unless he had a massive brain fart.

TitanHope
05-15-2013, 05:16 PM
Rob, Renji, and me is the team I want. But if you send JR, and you fail, then it pretty much sums up that JR is Gonzo's accomplice.

TitanHope
05-15-2013, 05:18 PM
Unless Renji just sold out his ally to gain favor with the rest of us, so I guess we can't rule anything out.

Gay Ork Wang
05-15-2013, 06:22 PM
im not smart enough for that. if that was true, i wouldnt have needed to stop the last mission, cause i was on the team anyways. in my experience with the game, resistance have a harder time winning than spies

but yea, ill send TH Rob and me.

Dr. Gonzo
05-15-2013, 06:22 PM
You are ******** Renji. I guess me trying to speed up the game means I am for sure evil. Everyone who voted yes to Rob yesterday must be evil too! I saw the game stall so I changed my vote. The only people who know who is evil are the baddies. You clearly did not actually want to go after I called you out. I am certain as a town we will win this anyway since I can't see Renji blowing it for the spies with him as leader. In any case I am not concerned, eventually you all will figure out I am good.

Brothgar
05-15-2013, 06:29 PM

Gay Ork Wang
05-15-2013, 06:33 PM
yesterday was sending to people on the mission. we have 3 good people and 2 bad people. So that was fine if they were the other two good.

Now today we have 3 on the mission. So we HAD to get 3 good people on the team. just sending 3 people on their when you are good means that there is one bad person left on the team and it is definitely going to fail.

i really dont know why you are being so hostile really. just calm down and be civil

TitanHope

The Resistance caught wind of a supply depot that was advertised as a doll factory that actually made parts for the governments new top secret weapon made specifically to detect resistance transmitters. This could not stand if the resistance would have any chance at defeating the oppressive government. Once again Titan Hope bashed the two guards over the head with a cricket bat knocking them unconscious while Renji Rerouted the security system. RobS planted the C4 in strategic places around the factory for maximum destruction. Then one of the team pulled the fire alarm to clear the room of security and the sprinkler system went off ....

The Resistance was in the government capital. Kidnapping the leader of the government would lead to ultimate victory as the plan that TitanHope had advised comes to fruition. They watch as the Grand Leader gets into his up armored stretch limo and he turns into the clutches of the resistance. A few explosions and pelvic thrusts later the government crumbles ushering the era of a new independent nation.

RESISTANCE WINS

Ok guy good game by all. I like this concept as it is a good way to give people who die early in standard mafia games something to do. As to that I would like to know what you liked and what you didn't like as well as what needs to be fixed for future iterations of this game.

TitanHope
05-15-2013, 09:29 PM
Even though the resistance won, I think it'd be better to play as a spy. Seems like it'd be easy to win because online, it's just a "he said, she said" deal. Probably easier to root out the spies in person.

Gay Ork Wang
05-16-2013, 03:16 AM
It really is easier to win as a spy, though a 5 man game might be the easiest to lose there.

But yay, winner winner chicken dinner!
