INTRO

The people of this world know little of earth, nor do most much care, after the homeworld abandoned them for unknown reasons over 700 years ago why should they? What we do know is that after we were abandoned, humanity fractured into dozens - perhaps even hundreds - of independant nations scattered across the world.

There have been many rebellions since the Hegemony took control of the eastern continent nearly 300 years ago. From patriotic nationalists fighting to liberate their home nations and political idealists seeking to change the world for the better, to convicts with no other choice or members of the lower castes who see a gruesome death in a firefight as a better alternative to the harsh, oppressed, and all-to-short lives they know. Yes, there have been many rebellions, but perhaps... perhaps this one will be different...

GAMEPLAY

Six of you are rebel leaders from around the hegemony that have gathered to discuss coordinating your forces in a final offensive against the hegemony, three of you are hegemony spies that have infiltrated the rebel meeting with the intention of discovering and disrupting their plans. For each combat mission there will be a mission leader, who may be a rebel or a spy. This mission leader will be required to choose a team of people from among the players to go on a mission and the other players will be required to vote on whether or not to accept that team makeup. If five or more vote yes, the mission goes ahead as planned by the mission leader. If five or more vote no, the next person on the list is given the opportunity to select a team make-up. If this process continues to the third person for a particular mission, that persons team choice is accepted without a vote and the mission goes ahead as they plan it. Once a mission begins everyone on that mission will be given a PM asking them to make a choice relating to the mission. Spies on the elected team will be given the choice of either disrupting the mission or letting it go as planned while rebels will be given game-theory style choices about how they want to play out the mission (these rebel choices are the main difference between my version of Resistance and the 'real' version, I added it to give the rebels more of a feeling of interaction with the missions rather than just 'yay I'm on a mission, let's wait to see if the spies screw it up')

If a mission succeeds the rebels gain one to three points based on how successful it was. If it fails the spies gain one point. The rebels need ten points to win, the spies need five.

List of players:

1. ButterCatX
2. Matt
3. VoT
4. Triangle
5. Fire
6. Breaking
7. ThinkBig
8. Aluong
9. Valosa

The first mission is a simple propoganda job. Hijack a news station and broadcast your message to the people, tell them that the seperate and uncoordinated rebelions you each once lead are no more and that hope has been reborn with this new alliance.

The first mission leader will be ButterCatX, unless his proposed team is rejected. A simple job like this requires only three people on the team. This meeting has 96 hours to come to a decision.

Begin!
Cobalt - You could be scum too.
Matt - I suppose. But I also might not be.

Kiri - Yeah, I don't know what DD is doing.
Vaarka - He's doin'a thingy do

DD - The best advice most often goes unheeded.
Wise Man - KYS, DD.
DD - Case in point ^

No, the purpose is to create the positive propaganda of a united rebellion, not get rid of the "dirty" propaganda.

All players are provided a PM to submit actions while they are on missions and to ask the mod questions, but are free to talk in this thread with eachother.

Does that answer your question?

There was some confusion about the 'choose three people for the mission', but it was sorted out in PM.

The proposed plan is as follows:

Mission: Propoganda Broadcast
Mission planner: ButterCatX
Team: Butter, VoT, and Triangle

Yes Votes - None
No Votes - None
Undecided - Everyone

Five votes are needed to decide whether to go with this plan or move to the next person in the list to come up with a plan. ButterCatX does not get a vote because it is his plan.
Cobalt - You could be scum too.
Matt - I suppose. But I also might not be.

Kiri - Yeah, I don't know what DD is doing.
Vaarka - He's doin'a thingy do

I'm playing this game a lot like Mafia, so scum would probably let the first mission go unmolested if they are in the group so those people gain credibility. VoT approving the mission immediately has roused my suspicions.

Since he's on the mission (I just checked) this raises my suspicions even further.

@DD I really need to know whether I'm allowed to change my vote.

We have no evidence on who are spies and who are rebels, so we may as well not hold up this missiom.

We need to just wait for now. If scum are in the mission, they might be able to hammer and make us lose an opportunity. For now, we should do RVS and stuff.

Scum failing this mission are a great opportunity for us to nail down suspects.

But there's a good chance that scum won't fail this mission and therefore will gain credibility as town. We should wait until we have some more data.

Which is why we shall not draw any conclusions from the first mission, and hold everybody to the same suspicion.

Also we eventually must do a first mission. And behavior analysis is ln't too accurate compared to real information. Let's just get this done with and pass this mission.

We either gain intelligence, or a free point.

This game is different from mafia because it is more info based. As scum don't have to do anything if they don't want to, and there's no cop. The best possible thing is to let the first mission go and gain info from it.

Also, will we know how many people chose to let the mission fail?

Okay, because when I played it knowing the number of people was very helpful as the hegemony made up the entirety of a mission once.
