Murder Mystery - Who Killed Ashlund?

Post by Julia » Tue Jul 21, 2020 7:31 pm

Update August 7th, 2020 Hi, everyone! I am so thrilled with the response we've received to this brand new event! Unfortunately, real life has caused this event to be postponed for now. I want to be able to devote my full attention to making this an incredible event for some incredible Highlanders!

Welcome to Mystic Highland:s an all new event! Think of this event as a super roleplay event. You'll be asked to roleplay the most extreme version of your character. This is all in good fun, and it will certainly play off of some tropes. We'll be gathering together at Ranger's Respite (Ashlund's inn) to solve a murder mystery.

More details for roleplaying will be provided later, but the rules are as follows:

Everyone gets a clue, a secret, and an ability. Some may get items.
Clue - A clue that can lead you to the killer
Secret - Something you don’t want others to know, or possibly, that you don’t want others to know about someone else
Ability - something special you can do that can allow you to gain leverage over another person.
Item - an item that can give you an advantage (knife)

Win Conditions
You know the murderer
Achieve the most/all of your goals

We’ve all come to Ranger’s Respite for a party. Ashlund is ready to host, and he leaves to bring back refreshments. He never comes back…

Who killed Ashlund? Work together with your friends to out the murderer and bring them to justice.

Example Character:
Goals: Find your bow; Don’t let Dixie drink all the wine; Take Spolmit’s poison away.
Clue: Spolmit knows how to make poison.
Secret: Dixie was in an argument this morning with Spolmit.

The game will be played in three phases:

Phase 1: Arrival
Arrive to Ranger’s Respite and mingle with the other guests. Ashlund is still alive.
Phase 2: Discovery and Investigation
Ashlund has been found dead! Use your clue and secret (and perhaps even your item) to achieve your goals and find the murderer.
Phase 3: Judgement
Vote for the murderer before all is revealed and a winner is declared.

This event will take place on Sunday, August 16th at 7:00pm BST. If you're interested in playing, please let Julia or Ashlund know by August 9th. This is an RSVP event, as the event organizers will have to create goals, clues, secrets, items, and abilities for you.

Questions? Reach out to Julia or Ashlund! Hope to see you there!
