"Welcome... Welcome. Dear sirs and dear madams, my name is Robert Watson and I bid you a humble welcome to Tudor Manor and I sincerely hope that you enjoy your stay... Unfortunately, our host Mr. John Boddy seems to be dead at the moment. In his stead, I, as his butler will be in charge of making sure that you will be properly cared for during your stay... Oh my guests, for your safety, I advise that you don't leave this mansion, it is far too dangerous... and there will be no arriving help for at least a week. My oh my, it seems that there is a murderer among us. I surely hope that everyone will survive..."
You have been invited by Mr. John Boddy for a stay at the beautiful Tudor Manor for a leisurely week of vacation. John Boddy is a well-known millionaire, and you are honored to be invited. So of course, you pack your belongings to spend some time off with him and a handful of other people in his massive estate. Arriving at Tudor Manor, you meet many people for the first time, and there will be plenty of time to get acquainted and friendly. After all, what could go wrong?
Two days into the stay, a scream rings out into the mansion. "He's dead!! Mr. Boddy is dead!!"
Who among you is the murderer? Who within this group of invited people could have the motive and the means to kill Mr. Boddy?
Nobody knows... Except for the murderer of course.
Will you be the one to find the killer, or will you be their next victim...?
I haven't exactly gotten into the details yet, but I was really interested in roleplaying a "Clue" (Known as "Cluedo" Outside of the US) type mystery.
I'm not really sure how this will work, but I am currently thinking that there will be a number of people invited to the party, and I will choose a murderer based on the characters. That person will be the one throwing everyone off track, and trying to hide his/her trail. Everyone else will be playing as the "detective."
Technically, you don't even have to be the detective if you don't want to. You can be the wimpy crybaby who locks themselves in their room or something.
I'm toying around with the idea of having the murderer kill more characters as the story progresses, until the murderer is found. When the murderer is found... I'm not sure what happens then as of right now.
Characters would preferably be based off of the Clue game characters but definitely NOT limited to that. If you would like to be a Miss Scarlet-type character, go for it. But you must come up with your own name, own background, own personality...etc.
This is a little rough around the edges, but if enough people express interest, I will definitely finalize things and make things clear!!
