Wrapped in Plastic Day 2: Black as Midnight on a Moonless Night

The investigators gathered the next morning in the Double R diner, where they sipped damn fine coffee and freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice served by Norma and a grieving Shelly. The mysterious disappearance of her daughter so soon after Laura Palmer’s grisly murder had clearly unsettled her mother, as did the fact that it was 1989 and her daughter was somehow around the same age as her.

None of the other investigators had the heart to admit to her that they knew for sure that Becky’s disappearance was not the work of one murderer, but twenty-three.

Sadly, one of the few definite assets they had did not join them in that diner. Deputy Tommy “Hawk” Hill (Zecko) has died. He was A Bookhouse Boy.

Chloe Price believed that the death of Laura Palmer might be connected to the murder of her girlfriend Rachel Amber. She thought wrong, but that didn’t stop the brash, outspoken young bisexual from deciding to pursue her suspicions during the night. This proved to be a spectacularly bad idea. She’d had a rough life so far, but now that was all over. Chloe Elizabeth Price (Hayes) has died. She was Vanilla Town.

Tina and Laura LaRoux had only been passing through town on a trip. Rather than check into the comparatively expensive Great Northern, they had decided to break out the camping gear in their trunk and spend an evening in the woods. That, too, was a mistake. Tina and Laura LaRoux (Lindsay) have died. They were Vanilla Town.


The rules are quite simple. There is a day phase and a night phase. During the day phase the players will discuss and decide by popular vote who from among themselves they should eliminate. During the night phase, the players whose roles grant them special powers will have the opportunity to use them to help or hinder the investigation as appropriate.
