A murder mystery!

Post by Chyleste » Sat Jan 02, 2016 12:02 pm

A body is discovered laying in the intersection near the Goldstar Media building. The victim is identified as Les Mealson one of the top executives of the media corp. The questions is what happened to him? Can you solve the mystery?


This event is a bit different than any others we have run here. If this works out well, then we will have more using similar methods.

This event will have three parts :
NOTE : Remember that you should not just barge into someone's apartment IC. Cops can get warrants. Independent investigators will need to be sneakier or if they do break and enter they will face the IC consequences.

The first part will be gathering clues to identify suspects and try to piece together what happened to the victim. The best place to start is to look around the crime scene. If you find clues, click on them and they will whisper to you giving you a hint to the next place to look. This first part will run roughly a week or so to give everyone a chance to participate.

The second part will involve tracking down and interacting with the suspects as well as gathering more clues. There will be either some NPC suspects that will have some basic clues / information or if you feel as if you need a full interactive interview we can schedule an RP scene with someone playing the NPC.

The third part should be the climax when accusations are made and the main suspect is confronted with evidence. How this part of the event plays out depends on the actual RP.

(( Please Do not post any spoilers at least until the next wave of the mystery. I deleted Battlemages post. I am happy to discuss things privately but do not spoil things for everyone else. ))

(( This mystery event was a first try with a new system. I regret and apologize that it did not go as smoothly as I had planned. I have learned a lot about how tings need to be done. There will be another mystery with all the problems worked out before it is set up. Thank you all for everything. I promise the next one will be so much better. ))

I was wondering if this had gotten side-tracked. Live and Learn

Does this mean that the mystery won't continue? I was looking forward to the next stages.

At this time I have been too overwhelmed with other things to play the roles needed. I thought I had things set so it could run with out much admin involvement until the end, but apparently not.
