Murder at Archibold Mannor

Post by SophieTheRabbit »

This is a basic whodunit RP, if you have ever played the boardgame Cludo you will have a fair idea of what is going on.
The rules for this RP are:
1. Al Characters have specific roles to play.
2. Extra information will be PMed to all Players
3. No PMing for trading Information is allowed, Only your Character must know this and decide weather to share it in RP conversation
4. The killer has already been chosen, the killer will be notified and all others will be told that they are "SAFE", again this information must not be passed on to other players.
5. you may lie but don't make it impossible, but don't make it obvious.
6.No one can attempt to leave the manor grounds.
7. Any clues MUST be noted by the detective.
8. enjoy.

the trick is for the killer to pin the blame on others, and the others to try and figure out who done it.
Once the detective thinks they know who the killer is the RP is over weather the guess is rite or not.
Hidden information will be passed to each character, whether they share this information or not is up to them.
i will also tell each person via PM whether they are not the killer "Safe" or if they are the killer "Killer", this information must NOT be passed to anyone.


Plot line
Upon inviting Close friends to the manor, Mr. Archibald awaited the celebration of his Only child's Twenty-first birthday, the evening went smoothly and the majority of guests left late into the evening. How ever 8 people remained in the house after, come morning Mr. Archibald was found dead in the cellar, Who could have done it? Everyone has a alibi, but everyone has a reason to was him dead.

The local police have sent there best detective to investigate, will he arrest the person in time? Or will the murderer strike again?

Suspects

Maid: Spice (SophieTheRabbit)
Crooked Cop:
Cook: Pending (Devin_T
Daughter/Son: Pending (Dimitriexeno)
Daughter/Son's best friend:Alexa Meyers (Osprey77)
Mr. Archibold's Business Partner: Kanen (Vamp)
Wife:

Detective
(Board Walker)
Johnathon Michelangelo Rodolph

How this works

The detective will be given a detective's note pad, (a seperate page on the descution thread) This will show what the detective has found out so far. I will add basic info on on the Suspects there but the rest is up to the detective to find.
(i would advise all players to read this before they start and through out the RP, link given below.)

Basic information will include: Info on suspects, Alibi, Motive and connections (who knows who)
This info is handy to individual players to understand their characters

A description of the body will be given, a set of clues and a copy of the will.

a layour of the mannor will be given, the Characters must travel in real time here will be no 'i exited the hall went up the stairs and came to my room.' please describe to the fullest of your ability, thank you.

You can apply for characters here but this will be a privet RP so ask quick, Happy posting.

Brother: Hey Sis', want a carrot?
Me: No thank you.
Bro: Come on, Rabbits love carrots.
Me: Don't be so stereotypical Rabbits eat other things to!
Bro: Ok, ok, don't have to get touchy. Sheesh.

Later that day...
Bro: Hey Sis' what's that you're eating?
Me: Carrot cake.
Bro: Pardon?
Me: Carrot cake.
Bro: What cake?
Me: CARROT.......*glares evilly* I hate you sometimes, you know that?

Right, here's a link to the Detective, or at least the basic info needed. I might flesh him out if I decide to use him more, but I might trade him in for his son if I RP in the modern times any more.
