Clue: An Uncertain Alibi...

Post by cacums »

So, I've decided to rack my brain and come up with a fun and (hopefully) original RPG for up to 12 forum members... I have and I will post the rules as soon as I write them out :)

Game will hopefully start tomorrow...

I.
You choose what character you wish to be and I will post a story including 12 suspects and their motives towards Dr. Black. It will lead up to ten minutes before the murder and skip to the point where the body is found. After the story is finished I will then PM you a hidden part of the story of what your character did ten minutes before the murder, which weapons you handled, etc. One person will be the murderer… and will receive their confession scene… it is up to them to create an alibi.

II.
Next you can interrogate each other asking questions pertaining to the murder (basic finger pointing)

III.
Then after a round of interrogating you can roll play around the mansion for a while. During the roll playing the killer may kill one person that they think is suspicious of them… or just let everyone remain alive until the end. By murdering someone you PM him/her and me and when someone else enters that room I will announce that so-and-so is dead… that will give the killer enough time to go to another room and socialize with someone else and seemingly give the killer another alibi.

IV.
Another round of interrogations should come into play followed by an accusation. Each player may make three accusations. If no one is able to solve the murder, the killer escapes the mansion and wins the game! But if someone is able to determine whodunit, where, and with what, that player wins the game!

V.
I don't expect all 12 character slots to be filled, so the left over characters will be in the story, but will leave the mansion before the murder and not be suspects... but if 12 willing people wish to partake, then everyone will be a suspect...

If anyone has any questions feel free to ask!

I think you know what character I call. I'll try to be good about this. I do have a busy September and a hellish October so this should be a welcome break but I hope others will be patient if I don't respond soon enough.

It's quite alright... I assume from the past you meant Scarlet as your character :)

The story should be finished by tomorrow...

SCENE 1: THE DINING ROOM; 6:06 pm
Thunder shakes the ground but the merry laughter almost drowns it out. The Dining Room table is full. Shrimp, lobster, and steak fill the air with their delicious scent. Wine and Champagne are poured into glasses left and right. Pearls shine, diamonds glisten, earrings shimmer in the light of the crystal chandelier. The gold candlesticks on the center of the table sparkle as well. Dr. Marcus Black sits at the head of the table. He listens to the gossip and merriment, though his mind seems to be elsewhere. Sgt. Grey solemnly sits in between Miss Peach and Madame Rose. Lord Oakwood sits at the other end of the table, quietly eating. Miss Scarlet looks down at her ruby bracelet. Rain continues to pelt against the windows. Colonel Martin Mustard sits to the left of Lord Oakwood. Mrs. Peacock graces the other seat next to Lord Oakwood, smiling and sipping red wine. Reverend Green sits to Mrs. Peacock’s right, followed by Miss Scarlet, M. Brunette, and Ms. Magenta. Professor Plum sits next to Madame Rose, also quietly eating.
“So,� Dr. Black speaks up, “Monsieur, how is that silly little project coming along?�
“It’s not a silly little project.� M. Brunette says with a feminine tone on his voice.
“Well, whatever it is, it’s costing an arm and a leg.� Dr. Black says, “You’ve kept this project so secret, I think it’s about time Lord Oakwood and I find out what grand idea we are investing in.�
M. Brunette’s face turns bright red, “Well, I don’t care to disclose it in public.�
“In the Drawing Room later, perhaps?� Dr. Black suggests
“Yes, yes!� M. Brunette turns back to the shrimp and steak on his dinner plate
Ms. Diane Magenta sits murmuring to herself about how strange the guests are.
Madame Rose looks at Reverend Green who sits across from her.
“Reverend.� She says alarmed, “You mustn’t think such thoughts!�
“What?� Reverend Green looks confused, “I beg your pardon?�
“Dr. Black may or may not know about what you did in Russia, but I’m certain he won’t accuse you!� Madame Rose says
Reverend Green chokes on his lobster and looks at Dr. Black with alarm.
“Sofÿa Rose has a very powerful gift.� Dr. Black says, “She can not only read the future, but also can sense the tenseness of minds, and if one ponder upon that tense thought long enough, it becomes clear in her own mind.�
“That’s very……� Mrs. Peacock is lost for words, “…… unique.�
“Tell me, Miss Rose.� Diane Magenta asks, “If you are so good at reading minds, what exactly am I thinking of right now?�
“Oh,� Madame Rose blushes, “I’m not sure if I like this sort of game, but I have a feeling you are thinking of your deceased husband.�
“Excuse me.� Ms. Magenta stands up and leaves the dining room.
“Well, this may be a fun topic for some.� Colonel Mustard clears his throat, “Do tell me about that nice shotgun you have above the mantel?�
“Oh, that was a gift from my grandfather when I was twenty-five.� Dr. Black says, more than happy to change the subject, “You see, he was an avid hunter in the tropics of South Africa…�

SCENE 2: THE KITCHEN; 6:10 pm
Mrs. White sits at the table frosting a chocolate cake. She glances over at the television which is on. Ms. Magenta enters.
“Oh, I’m sorry.� Ms. Magenta says
“Oh, it’s quite alright.� Mrs. White says
“I was actually looking for a quiet place to read.� Ms. Magenta says
“The Library is through the Billiard Room.� Mrs. White points to the Billiard Room door out in the hall…
“Thank you.� Ms. Magenta says leaving Mrs. White in the Kitchen. Mrs. White grabs three bottle.
“Cognac, Vodka, and… poison!� Mrs. White chuckles putting it next to the sink.

SCENE 3: THE DRAWING ROOM; 6:45 pm
Monsieur Brunette sits uncomfortably on the sofa. Dr. Black pours a scotch for the two men and sits down on the sofa across from him.
“So? The project?� asks Dr. Black
“Ah, yes.� M. Brunette says, “As you know I am a good artist, and my work is quite popular with some rich people…�
“You’ve only done two portraits.� Dr. Black interrupts, “Go on.�
“I have been using the money that you have been giving me to fund lessons for me to be a better artist.� M. Brunette says timidly
Dr. Black’s glass drops from his hand, “You told me this was a project that would benefit me!�
“Well it will; I will give you all of my original paintings and you can sell them to the highest bidder!� M. Brunette says, pretending to be strong about this.
“God dammit, Eric!� Dr Black says, “I paid you money for a good cause! Not for the load of crap you call art!�
“But it will!� M. Brunette says, “I know it will.�
“I could go to the authorities about this!� Dr. Black says
“Marcus, please!� M. Brunette begs
“I don’t need to hear it!� Dr. Black says
M. Brunette reaches for the decorative dagger on the coffee table and fingers with it.

SCENE 4: THE MUSIC ROOM; 6:50 pm
“He knows!� Miss Scarlet says on her cell phone, “The way he looked at me at dinner! He knows for sure!� there is a pause, “I don’t give a damn about the money!� another pause, “No, you listen to me Donté! If this goes up in smoke we are screwed over! I cannot just come here and hope for the best!� there is another longer pause, “If it’s the only way to stay out of the papers…� Miss Scarlet looks at a piece of piano wire coiled up on the piano bench. She picks it up and drops it on the stool in front of the harp.
Mrs. Eileen Peacock enters the room as Miss Scarlet hangs up.
“Hello.� Miss Scarlet says smoothing the wrinkles in her dress.
“Oh, hello.� Mrs. Peacock says, “You are Leslie, aren’t you?�
“What? Yes, I… I am.� Miss Scarlet says, her mind elsewhere.
“Don’t mind me, I just came in here to try out the harp.� Mrs. Peacock says, “I took lessons. Would you like to hear a little?�
“Umm, I guess.� Miss Scarlet says
Mrs. Peacock moves the piano wire to the chair near the violin and begins to play and elegant melody.

SCENE 5: THE BILLIARD ROOM; 6:59 pm
Colonel Mustard takes a shot at a red ball but misses. Professor Plum takes his turn. Lord Oakwood smokes a cigar and sips brandy in the seating area. Miss Peach is sitting next to him, flirting.
“Well, sugar.� Miss Peach says, “I was born to a nice rich family, but my daddy died when I was ten. That of course made it easier for me to date the men I wanted when I was thirteen, in fact that was when I thought I was pregnant. Sadly no.�
“You want to have kids?� asks Lord Oakwood taking a breath
“With the right man.� She lowers her voice and lights a cigarette.
Plum and Mustard watch as Miss Peach dramatically crosses her legs, allowing her dress to reveal a smooth, thing leg. Professor Plum stares in awe at Miss Peach’s irresistibly body. Colonel Mustard shakes his head, all the while smiling.
“Did you get a look at her?� Professor Plum lowers his voice and comes over to the Colonel.
“She is just a trap that men fall into. I’d be cautious around her.� Colonel Mustard says
“You’ve already had her?� Plum asks
“Oh yes, but that was a long time ago.� Mustard says

SCENE 6: THE LIBRARY; 7:03 pm
Ms. Magenta sobs silently in the window seat, the rain streams down the windows making the room feel darker and more closed in. She then wipes her eyes and takes the lighter that is on the table and lights her cigarette. She then gets up and goes over to a bookshelf.

SCENE 7: THE STUDY; 7:08 pm
Dr. Black sorts a stack of envelopes as M. Brunette enters.
“Would you mind gathering everyone in the Drawing Room, I have a little announcement to make.� Dr. Black says
“You have to listen to me and understand my reasons!� M. Brunette says
“Do I?� asks Dr. Black, “Ha!�
“I still think this is beneficial.� M. Brunette says
“For you! You wasted my money to help you!� Dr. Black exits the study leaving M. Brunette scared and angry. M. Brunette sees the desk drawer is slightly opened and a revolver lies inside. He takes it and looks at the door Mr. Boddy left through.

SCENE 8: THE DRAWING ROOM; 7:17 pm
Everyone has an envelope in hand. They each open theirs and read it quietly. Suddenly the shuffle of papers goes quiet and all eyes cast upon Dr. Black.
“In a nutshell, each of you has a deadly secret in your notes. There is also the price to keep it secret. If I don’t get my monthly pay, the authorities will find out.� Dr. Black chuckles
A tear falls from Miss Peach’s eyes and hits the paper. Miss Scarlet swallows hard. Ms. Magenta closes her eyes and sits down on the sofa. Mrs. White leaves the room. Reverend Green’s hands quiver and his face is pale. Colonel Mustard hurries off to the dining room.
“I sensed this coming.� Madame Rose says
“Oh, I’m sure you did!� Dr. Black says
“Miss Scarlet, Mrs. Peacock, Monsieur Brunette, and Ms. Magenta, would you care to go to the library? The rest of you may go home.� Dr. Black says

SCENE 9: THE CELLAR; 7:27 pm
Mrs. White angrily walks down the cellar stairs carrying a gold candlestick. She steps onto the firm concrete to see a pool of blood in the corner.
“Oh my God!� Mrs. White gasps she walks over to it to see another pool of blood near the coal bin. She opens the lid of the coal bin and sees the bloody body of Dr. Black…

Alright, everyone has the PM's about what their note said, what they did, and what weapons they've held. I randomly chose the order of players turns for interrogations...

(NO ACUSATIONS ARE TO BE MADE)

M. Brunette
Mrs. White
Ms. Magenta
Miss Scarlet
Mrs. Peacock
Colonel Mustard

During your interrogation you may ask two questions. They may be to two different people or to the same person, only the killer can lie!

After two turns for each player you can roll play in the mansion for a while...
