PostSubject: Murder at the Ravenwood Masquerade Ball [Sign Up Thread]   3rd July 2016, 11:48 am

Quote :

Bloodworth Falls is an isolated town full of scandal, blackmail and deceit. Nobody in town can seem
to get along, and the local government has hidden motives for the dreadful decisions they make. The
mayor is hosting a mysterious masquerade ball in the old Ravenwood Castle, and the tickets to the
event sold out in hours. The townspeople are curious to find out why the mayor would put effort into
doing something positive in this town of gloom, but are all eagerly hunting for the perfect mask,
nonetheless. You are worried what will happen this night when such toxic people gather at the
Castle. You are also very concerned, as you didn't purchase your ticket; it was placed in your
mailbox in an unmarked envelope. Somebody wants you there, but you don't know why. This is
where your story begins.
 Welcome to the Galaxy Cauldron's 5th Anniversary Roleplay Murder Mystery Game: Murder at the Ravenwood Masquerade Ball, brought to you by   Sailor Jupiter and www.MyMysteryparty.com. 

In this game you will be taking on the role of a member of the Bloodworth Falls community and attend the Masquerade Ball at the Ravenwood Castle; as the title of this game suggests, at some point one random player will be murdered, and it will be up to the party guests to figure out who did it, and why. Throughout the game, some players will receive clues and hints via PM to help them figure out just what went on here, and help solve this case before it's too late!

Rules

  1. The Galaxy Cauldron Roleplaying Rules are in Effect - Be familiar with general rules, especially so far as powerplaying, godmodding, and metagaming are concerned. 
  2. Activity Rule: Players MUST be active in this game! Each player gets their own set of clues and hints and evidence and if you sign up and don't participate, you screw everyone else over. Don't sign up if you can't dedicate at least 30 minutes a day to play!


Additional Notes

  • At this point even Jupiter and I don't know who the victim and culprit will be - it's all hidden in the cards that we haven't read, so please don't get mad if it randomly turns out to be you XD When the victim dies, they are not out of the game. They can still play - they just have to speak like a ghoooost
  • You will not be claiming a character when you sign up - you don't get to pick a character, one will be assigned to you via PM before the game begins. This is to further keep the victim and culprit hidden among our players! 
  • Communication between characters is a primary factor in gameplay. That's right, prepare to gossip in character to keep ahead of the curve in this one



Helpful Hints on How to Play a Mystery Party wrote:
You’ve been assigned a character and you’ve come to the party dressed in the most awesome costume and have been told to play your role. Now what?

The mystery is separated into three main rounds of party play. During the party, you will receive an envelope that contains the clues necessary for your character for the round. The clues for the characters at the party provide everything that you need to solve the mystery. However, during the investigation segment of the game, you will need to ask the right questions and pay close attention to everyone’s clues to get the whole picture of what has happened.

In each of your clue cards, there will be some information that you can reveal in casual conversation with other guests. It is just like real life! You can elect to have some of those clues as information that you should be ‘asked’ by other guests in order to reveal. You can hide the truth but do not lie and make up clues. This could alter the mystery for the other guests. Some of the information in your clue cards might be for actions to perform during certain rounds or it might give you personal information to explain to you how your character feels about certain issues involving other characters or situations. This personal information is given to you to enable you to act as the real character. As in real life, each character should know a little more about their character above the rest of the group. Therefore, these types of clues do not need to be revealed to the other guests - unless you want to tell your secrets! Don’t worry, others will figure your secrets out on their own in later rounds if it is vital to the mystery.

Just as with any normal dinner party, most of the party play will involve mingling with the other characters and finding out about each other's characters and the clues you all have received. As the game progresses, you should have quite a bit of information to filter through to figure out the motive and whodunit! Read your clue cards thoroughly and take your time discussing issues with other guests. Make sure you speak to all guests in each round. Any guests that you feel might be hiding something - make sure to ask him or her loads of questions! You will be asked to submit a guess of ‘whodunit’ and why they did it at the end of round two. Watch out...YOU could even be the murderer and won’t know it until the end. Therefore, if you feel you are the guilty party by the end of Round Two – by all means, accuse yourself!

From this point forward, you are to remain in character until the mystery is solved. If you are playing a ‘hypocritical police officer,’ then that is who you are until the end! Undoubtedly, your host cast you into a character that you are comfortable playing. Some characters are designed to be played more reserved than other characters. Feel free to play your role in any manner that you feel comfortable. Embellish your character’s personality if you would like. However, if you are feeling more reserved tonight, you can opt to allow the other guests to approach you or you can simply listen in on others’ conversations to get your information.

How Sign-Up Round will Work

  • Sign up starts TODAY, JULY 10th, and will end on JULY 15th. 
    --To sign up, reply to this thread! Then chill. or get hyped. Scratch chill - get hyped. This is going to be fun XD
  • On July 15th, roles will start to be sent out via PM.
    --In your Role PM, you will receive both your role (i.e. your character, with a description and background ((and a super simple header name-tag to be posted at the top of each of your in-game posts))) and a pre-game task.
    ----These 'tasks' typically involve contacting other players via PM to share a pre-game message. While it is not vital to the game, it's fun and helps you get in your characters head, so do it XD 
    ----Players are not required to respond to the pre-game message - i.e., if My character sent Your character a pre-game message, you do not need to reply; just read through to get an idea of the relationship between our characters! It helps set the stage.
  • On July 16, the Game Thread will be posted.
    --Once you sent out your pre-game messages, check in to that thread, in character, by arriving to the Masquerade Ball.
    ----Further instructions will be given at that time.

ATTENTION:

We will be reopening this RP to sign ups! Some players have had to drop out, so if you would like to sign up, please post below. (Please note, your character will be selected for you - the reason for this is that some characters must be present in order for the story to work!)

If you are a returning player, well, welcome back to the ball. Time to catch up with old friends!
