In electronic circuits, resistors are used to reduce current flow, adjust signal levels, to divide voltages, bias active elements, and terminate transmission lines.

Colloquially, the term Resistor refers to an individual who uses subterfuge to deliberately disrupt the normal function of political, corporate, or economic operations in order to achieve a goal.'
'Resistor' Netpedia article, n.d.

San Angeles, California, the near future.
You?ve all known each other for years. In fact, you've kind of grown up together. You?ve shared successes, failures, painful breakups, bad grades. You've watched each other develop, and learned together what you love by trying on new personalities, sometimes via identity theft. You've hacked banks, redistributed wealth, committed corporate espionage, and engaged in random acts of cyber-vandalism together.

But you've never met.

Now, with your entire friendslist right at the edge of gaining the age Of Human Majority, and the legal accountability that comes with it, it's time for you to connect in MeatSpace. To see each other face to face, and pull off one last Resistor mission, before you ran the risk of being tried as an OHM.

Through the NetSpace gossip channels, you've discovered Diazo-Kingman Tele-Computing has made a breakthrough in unhackable hosting and data storage. No self-respecting Resistor would let them get a monopoly on tech that should be public. So you laid out the perfect plan.

Your friendslist would connect in the real world by breaking into DZK's Downtown San Angeles headquarters. You'd crack their ICE, and broadcast the tech to the people at large.You filled your in-brain computing wetware with scripts that gave you all sorts of ninjatech skills, and uploaded the blueprints of the building.

Something overheated.

You don't know what blue-screened, but now you and your friendslist are trapped in a nearly empty room, behind reinforced steel walls, and a faraday field that's locked down your ability to connect to NetSpace outside.

Escape isn't an option. All you can do is figure out what is going on, and how you can spin it to your advantage when CorrecSec shows up.

But someone's left data in here with you. Puzzles. Hints about what DZK has been doing. Clues about what they've discovered. Why you're trapped, and who's responsible. Hints that you were sold out.

If you can figure them out, they might give you options. But you'll have to decide who you trust to help you, and who's just out for themself.

Surrounded by people you thought were your friends, with no way to leave until the doors are opened, you're racing against a clock you can't see to figure out what the hell is going on, and how you can make it work out in the long run.

You're a Resistor. You disrupt the current. And you've certainly disrupted it for DZK.

Thing is, you're not sure if when they do let you out, they're planning to arrest you, or interview you.

------
A game about angry teens with in-brain computers, set in a near future possible reality. Collaboration is necessary, trust is hard.

(While this game has teen characters, and mainstream content, it was not designed specifically as a Teen LARP.)

Resistor is a Powered by the Apocalypse game in development by the GM.

LARP Experience: Beginners Welcome
Game Content: Family

You finally took Quark up on his 2-for-1 holosuite deal. It seemed like such a great way to blow off a little steam with some friends. Unfortunately, you seem to have triggered an old Cardassian boobytrap, sealing the room and shutting down most of the systems. Engineering is locked out, transporters aren't functioning, and there's an ominous countdown proceeding toward zero. You need to somehow make sense of the station's systems and puzzle your way out of this before something bad happens.

Notes:
1. This is a game event that requires you to use your keen mind and powers of deduction to succeed. While knowledge of Trek may be entertaining, it is not necessary.
2. Gather items, find codes, and solve puzzles to restore system functions and escape.<br>3. Strategy and cooperation with your team members is essential more heads are definitely better than one.<br>4. Failure to escape the holosuite is nothing to be embarrassed about. After all, you are matching wits with the Cardassians, widely known for their devious plots and ingenious traps.<br>5. Do not worry if you are still in the holosuite when time expires. Odo has told Quark he's not allowed to charge you extra.<br>6. Dressing like your Trek character may help

These resources can be used to build defenses, weapons, or other assests to advance your team's goals. It can be cooperative or competitive.
