Russian Spy (Chapter III) Congratulations to the winner - bahrain (Assassin)
It is the early twentieth century. As a member of the clandestine Russian revolutionaries you have undergone initial spy training (in
) and become a key man in the planned revolution (
The eve of the Revolution is nigh. Comrades, now is the time to bring to an end three centuries of Romanov dynastic rule. As Lenin has predicted, Russia has been the tool of French and British capitalist Imperialism in the War. This is becoming clear to the masses, the deception by the bourgeoisie is finally being unmasked, layer-by-layer.
The Bolsheviks in Petrograd have organized for the self-emancipation of the working class. The Tsarist regime is floundering under the effects of the war, the proletariat are rebelling, the initiative being taken by the most oppressed and downtrodden.
We will bring Power to the People.
Along with a number of other comrades you are charged to undertake further missions to remove Tsarist political and military leaders as the socialist revolution gathers pace toward completion.
Details of your first two missions will be provided to you in some kind of untraceable anonymous fashion (in keeping with the need for secrecy) – only those successful in competing one of these missions will be enscripted for further missions (unless there is an insufficient number of comrades for further missions, in which case surviving unsuccessful comrades will be given an additional mission to demonstrate their competence).
You are also briefed on the recognition and benefits that success would bring, as well as being warned that failure to complete the initial mission will result in you being removed from the elite spy core.
show: Evolving Storyline
A note is slipped under your appartment door: "Comrades, the Proletariat strikes and militant action are moving towards culmination. If we can combine this Bolshevik action with elimination of key Tsarist government and military officials, then the military will not support the Tsar as civil action escalates. The result will be a Socialist Revolution. If you look outside your window you will see a comrade with a turned-up collar and a red star upon his hat - he carries information of your targets' whereabouts - many officials can be tracked down by rail, whilst many key military Tsarists are located in Moscow. You will be given s much detail of your targets identities and whereabouts as we have. Good luck in your missions. For security reasons this message is written in disappearing ink so you must act quickly. Power to the People." .......... After your successful mission, you are taken to a secret Petrograd warehouse for de-briefing. Although he had been reported to be in Finland, Lenin himself steps up to speak: "Comrades, you have done well - you have aided the Soviets to gain power. With the Tsar's biggest supporters out of the way, he was forced to abdicate under the pressure of the war, the rebellious march of the proletariat in Petrograd and the refusal of the army to stop them. But the power of the Soviets is weakened and diluted by bourgeois capitalists still clinging to power as the Provisional Government. Of course, these capitalists are still under the influence of the French and English capitalist imperialists, and with their influence over the army, wish to continue the War. This will be their undoing as we march onward, create our own army, the Red Guards, rally the proletariat to march and strike in protest at the war and the bourgeois government. We will march onward until October, which will be named in history as Red October, when we will see a true Socialist Revolution. Until then, you have further missions: The fascist Kerensky, head of the Government, is reintroducing the death penalty and has appointed Lavr Kornilov Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Army. Kornilov and his officers are supported by the English and will stop at nothing to quell the proletariat. They are planning a military coup which must be stopped at all costs. Killing their political support in London will defeat their plan. Again, military targets in Moscow must be removed to pave way for the true Socialist Revolution. Without that support, the bourgeois capitalist Provisional Government cannot endure. Similarly, you must travel again by rail to eliminate Provisional Government supporters in other key cities, particularly Petrograd. Comrades, trust the network of Bolshevic agents that have identified targets for you - they will follow the same information protocols for these missions. You merely have to wait for their visit. Those successful in competing any mission will be enscripted for further missions as we will undoubtedly face bourgeois opposition once a Socialist Republic is established once and for all. Do not fear comrades, we will bring Power to the People." ................ You celebrate the revolution long into the night, but are awoken early from your drunken stupor. Again, you are taken to a secret Petrograd warehouse for de-briefing. "Comrades,the buorgeoisie are crushed and Kornilov's attempted military coup is defeated. Power is with the People and the People thank you for your role. Socialism is here and we may rejoice. Red October will be remembered in history for all time. Of course the bourgeois capitalists will not give up yet, they will attempt civil war. But, with the Proletariat and the Red Army behind the Soviets, we know they will fail and we will soon create The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. We know historical materialism to be true. Soon comrades of the proletariat throughout the world will seek emancipation. And the capitalist imperialists fear that more than anything. We must be on our guard against them, for the British, the French, the Americans and the Japanese will aid the bourgeoisie in their attempts to stop the People by force in a civil war: With socialism gaining ground in China, the Japanese fear being surrounded by emancipation and are preparing troops as we speak. Officers in their military bases hold the key to their involvement in our affairs. The French have always conspired to stop us and will no doubt send troops to support bourgeois attempts at civil war. Again, officers in their military bases hold the key to French involvement. The Americans are unlikely to intervene directly but we would do well to infiltrate their politicians and reduce their political support for the French and Japanese. Throughout our own lands the bourgeoisie are conspiring as we speak to rally forces against us. In the name of the Soviets we must eliminate these capitalist conspirators. Comrades, you know by now that you can trust the network of Bolshevic agents that have identified targets for you - they will follow the same information protocols for these missions. You merely have to wait for their visit. Needless to say that he who is most successful in competing these missions will gain a prominent position in the State Political Directorate. Do not fear comrades, Power will stay with the People. The Red Army will be victorious, it has been written. However hard they fight, the capitalists cannot stop history." ............... Once again, you find yourself at a secret Petrograd warehouse: "Comrades,the buorgeoisie are almost defeted. There is little left of the White Army. British and French support has been withdrawn, the Japanese are decimated and their support from the US has ended. You have performed well in decimating their political and military support from the capitalist imperialists. Power is with the People and the People thank you for your role. Socialism is here and we continue to rejoice. Once we can eliminate the last remaining major players in the bourgeois capitalist camps, The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics can finally be fully established. Your work is almost done. But we must be on our guard against the bourgeoisie, and in the name of the Soviets we must eliminate these last remaining capitalist conspirators. Comrades, you know by now that you can trust the network of Bolshevic agents that have identified targets for you - they will follow the same information protocols for these missions. You merely have to wait for their visit. I remind you that he who is most successful in competing these missions will gain a prominent position in the State Political Directorate. At this time, four agents have successfully completed one mission each. Power is with the People. The Red Army will be victorious. The end of civil war is in sight and historical materialism will be proven true. However hard they fight, the capitalists cannot stop history now."
This tournament is the third Russian Spy tournament, and the tenth in a series of Special Agent assassin tournaments.
The tournament follows an ‘evolving storyline’ format. It is open to all players with a decent attendance record.
Details: Match Options
Mission will take place on maps to be revealed through a secret message system as the storyline evolves …
Matches will be Assassin, Automatic and Sequential with No Round Limit. As the world of espionage is unpredictable and secretive, missions will also involve Flat Rate Spoils, Adjacent Reinforcements and Fog of War. Comrades
There will be 20 comrades.
Comrades must have a 97% attendance record, have played a minimum 25 matches, and not have dropped out from one of my tournaments previously! Freemium comrades must keep two slots available at all times. Comrades will have 24 hours to join their matches from when the joining PM is sent. Failure to do so will result in a reserve being sought (harsh, I know). Mission Allocation
Comrades will be allocated to missions according to random.org.
All reserves will be sent a PM when an opening occurs. The first reserve to respond will gain a place.
In the final missions, reserves will not be sought. If comrades are missing then matches will take place with one fewer player than planned. Joining Matches
Comrades will be informed when they have a match and will have 24 hours to join. If they fail to do so then they will be ejected from the tournament and a reserve will replace them.
Partnerships / Regular opponents
Comrades must inform the tournament organiser if they have a regular partner or opponent that is also featuring in the tournament. The organizer can then, wherever possible, ensure these comrades do not play together to avoid any potential claims of foul play by other players.
If reports of suspected foul play are made and the comrades in question have not declared that they are regular partners / opponents then they will be both be ejected from the tournament without question or the need for irrefutable evidence. Some of the other Tournaments by DJ Teflon
