The Resistance: Avalon + The Plot Thickens Forum Game #??


If Threag and Craig both want to use NC, Craig’s goes through as he is first in the player order.

CraigM has used No Confidence.

@scottagibson, would you like to play Strong Leader to become leader of Team 3D?

If not, @Lantz will select a team for 3D.

I think it has been ruled that Strong Leader does not count as a failed vote, but if I’m wrong, please tell me. But I think it will be Team 3D either way.


Strong Leader doesn’t count, it is just Team 3D


That’s what I thought, but I wanted to be sure.


Thraeg had first shot at it as this is Casey’s team proposal. Should follow player order from the leader.


Need to stress that we absolutely have to vote for this Lantz team as Thraeg will use NC and force the evil win.


Ah, I was going based on original player order. We can wait for @Thraeg but I think now that Craig has said he’ll use his NC Thraeg will be fine keeping his. The order thing really matters for Strong Leader, when you reap benefits when you play the card.


Yeah, that’s fine. I wasn’t planning to use mine anyway. I’m pretty suspicious of Rho, but also concerned about how close we’re getting to 5 failed votes. At this point it seems like the risk of including an evil on the team is less severe, since we still have one more shot to recover from a failed mission.


@scottagibson, will you use Strong Leader?


I will not use SL.


Once again, good players need to approve team 3d.


Confirming @scottagibson will not use Strong Leader.

@Lantz, please select a four-knight team for 3D.


It’s going to be a while. I have some ideas perculating but I have family stuff going on tonight. Please bicker among yourselves.

When it’s so quiet I assume evil might be railroading us effectively. More on that later.


Actually, I will put one oddity on the table. @CraigM gave @scottagibson the strong leader on what I consider fairly flimsy (although not insane) grounds and now Craig has used his NC to give Scott a strong chance at both the 4th and 5th round cards…


I have no idea what @CraigM is doing or why, but I’m on the side of the angels. I mean, I’m the one saying we can’t risk the two-NC loss.


Coupled with the way he just covered for Thraeg on the NC, or basically jumped the gun on it, it does look pretty weird. I only know half the evils so I could be pointing at the wrong folks for sure.


I don’t even know what this means. @CraigM is ahead of @Thraeg in the order, so he decides first whether to use the NC, so he did. What’s weird about that?


I’m fairly certain the team has evil on it. The alternative is that evil is 4 of the 5 of

Which I do not think is the case.

Again sorry for the rush, but the big boss from India is in office today.


Again, I find that I frustratingly have no idea what is going on. My initial read of the evil folks was Ott, Thraeg, CraigM, and rowe33, but that is extremely unlikely given that they were all on Team 2, and we only had one fail vote on that team. I have yet to go back to the posts to see if they were coordinating, but it seems like that would be extremely difficult.


As I already pointed out, that’s simply not true. Thraeg had first shot at the NC but Craig jumped in and played his anyways.


If you end up believing that I am good, then Ott and Thraeg are evil, and got lucky in that only one of them voted Fail on the mission. And then the simplest scenario is that CraigM and rowe33 are good. I say simplest because if either or both of them are evil, then damn, they got super lucky that only one person failed the mission.

Just stating this stuff for the record because it helps me remember, and I can bookmark it!
