Re: The Resistance 4 (1-1, Mission 3 Setup)

There's two plot powers so whether it is spy or resistance that is picked there is a pertinent power and a 50% chance that the spies have that power. They have to also pick the right person (50%). If KACEOY targets spy, PtE is useless, if KACEOY targets resistance, SS is useless. Hence 50% x 50% = ...

If M2 passes with you/angua/tim/xxx, then the same team is used for M3, and it's a straight up win. KaCEoY on Tim, if he passes, and the mission fails, it is likely due to xxx.
