Viking's Law: Anything that can go wrong, *SHOULD*

September 1962

Cold winds are descending on Moscow, greeting the seven strangers with a chilling reception. The seven men have been given a mission upon which the safety of the world hinges. Initial intelligence suggests that the Soviet Premier has initiated a daring plan to secure a vital ally. This plan must be discovered; the details must be returned to NATO. If secrets are not revealed, if the delay is too long, if the mission fails, then all may be lost.

But the situation is more dire than they realize. The team has been infiltrated by Russian agents: men whose only goal is to see the mission end in failure. If the Soviets emerge supreme, these men will be crowned in riches and glory. If the West is warned, then these men can expect to live out the remainder of their lives in the Siberian wastelands. The stakes are high, and these men will not back down.

But all is not lost. In the seedy underground of the black market lives a man. He makes a living trading information and favors. Perhaps he can interpret truth from the shadows, and reveal a man's true allegiance.

----

Rules:

There are four members of the American intelligence team.
There will be three Soviet agents.

Boris, a seedy man from the Russian criminal underground (the Inquisitor), is willing to help anyone willing to pay his fees. Before missions 3, 4, and 5 begin, he will use his contacts to discover someone's allegience and will reveal it to his client.

Features:

Each action will have a time limit of 24 hours from the previous action. (weekends not included.)

Standard PBF rules apply:

1) Official proposals should be in bold and contain the appropriate proposal number (per standard PBF etiquette, the fifth proposal will automatically be sent).
2) All votes will be GMed to me. Please send your vote in the subject line!
3) Please subscribe to the thread and check in at least daily (exceptions for weekends).
4) There should be no game related PMs between any players. Players are free to GM me with any concerns. [NB - I consider participants in this PBF discussing it with other participants outside of this thread to be poor form]
5) Do not edit posts, except within the first minute or two to fix typos. I trust you all to not abuse this. Also, if you post a post of just game facts, votes and proposals, and you make an error, you may edit that. If there is any analysis in the same post, there is no editing after the few minutes are up. For clarity - deleting is an extreme form of editing which is also forbidden.
6) No public dice rolls. You have not been provided with dice.
7) Submission changes rule: You can change a submitted card any number of times (eg PASS/FAIL, ACCEPT/REJECT) but as soon as I receive the card from the last player, no more changes are allowed, even if I'm not there to post the results yet.
If you made changes after all the cards were in, I'll tell you which submitted card was the final one.

Missions are 2/3/3/4*/4

The fourth mission requires two fails to fail it.

Please, let me know what's happening and why you act as you do. It's one of the joys of modding!

It's the Lady of the Lake. I starts with the person to the right of the start player (so, the last person to get a proposal). After M2, M3, and M4, the inquisitor activates. The holder chooses another person, learns their team, and passes the inquisitor on to them. Once you have held the inquisitor, no one can use the inquisitor on you for the rest of the game.

That should not be a problem. Either starting later, or being UTR, I think.

And now we're full!

For those of you who prefer a slightly delayed start time, when do you want to start it?

Oh, thanks for the reminder.

Just to let you all know, the game will be pausing from August 14-17 for Gencon. Since it's only a few days (I.e. A long weekend), and since it's not going to take people unawares, I hope this won't be an issue. People can still post, but the schedule will likely be slow or non-existent.

Given the normal length of time for games, this should occur around the half-way mark. Maybe slightly earlier.

Nat, that will not be a problem.

A life, some would argue, is a series of problems. There’s no denying the truth in that – but why get lost in it? Why not rise above the truth… and lead a good life? Shouldn’t we all look at problems as a chance for us to find… solutions?

An anonymous source in Moscow has reported that both NATO and the USSR are mobilizing increasing numbers of intelligence teams across all theaters of the world. Our source further indicates that Soviet counter-intelligence strategy appears focused on infiltrating NATO efforts to supply disinformation to the Western agents. It is not yet clear whether this tactic - Cont. on page 2

As of this moment we know nothing other than we have been infiltrated. While we must be on alert and suspicious of everyone, it may behoove us to at the same time give those present the benefit of the doubt.

To quote the late Senator McCarthy, who while he took things too far and was often wrong, was correct about the threat of the Russian communists.

"Today we are engaged in a final, all-out battle between communistic atheism and Christianity. The modern champions of communism have selected this as the time, and ladies and gentlemen, the chips are down — they are truly down."
