WW67: A Murder is Announced, Day 3

Good morning, fellow genteel detectives. After last night’s unpleasantness with the American detective, I was very much hoping the murderers would be able to restrain themselves and allow us to proceed in investigating them in a more dignified fashion, with no need for further bloodshed.

Alas, my hopes were dashed when the Great Soon to Be Lady Bantry failed to appear at breakfast. Moving as quickly as my old bones would take me, I dashed to her bedroom. It appeared her bed had not been slept in. I took a survey of the manor and found more Not Quite Yet Lady Bantry in the kitchen. She appeared to be sleeping at the table, but of course, a woman hoping to become gentry would never do such a thing. It appeared that Mrs. Bantry had repaired to the kitchen in the evening for a final cup of tea. How she did not notice it was so bitter and smelled of almonds, we can never be sure. Nonetheless, it is clear Mrs. Bantry was murdered by means of cyanide in her late night cup of tea.

Even worse, on my way back to the breakfast table to tell you this most grievous news, I stumbled upon the body of Adeline Bernadette Clara Brimble in the hallway. The poor child. She had seen so much murder in her time. Almost as much as I have, and I am four times her senior! It breaks my heart to see a young one die, especially a nice young country girl. She was a love. Ah, well. She’s in God’s arms now, and hopefully her 60 year old beau will join her soon for eternity. I will pray for her on Sunday. The poor thing appeared to have been stabbed with a letter opener. Truly terrible.
Cup of tea in the deceased’s memories? I’ve checked. This one is cyanide free.

You’ll have to look at this amazing picture of Miss Marple via link because WordPress hates me today: Miss Marple!

4 Murderers (Wolves)

12 Genteel Detectives (Town)

All of the Murderers will have roles that come with powers. Those roles are named, and the names are a clue as to the role and power assigned to each Murderer. When a Murderer is killed, I will reveal which role and power he or she was assigned to. I will not reveal the nature of that role/power.

The Murderer roles are:

Dr. James Sheppard
Justice Wargrave
Jane Wilkinson
Mrs. Hubbard

Some Town have roles with powers and some do not and are simply vanilla town. These roles are named and the names are a clue as to the role and power assigned to the Town member who receives that role and power. When a Genteel Detective is killed, I will reveal which role and power he or she was assigned to, if any. I will not reveal the nature of that role/power.

The Town roles are:

Hercule Poirot
Chief Inspector Japp
Ariadne Oliver
Colonel Hastings
Tuppence Beresford
Mr. Quin
Parker Pyne
Miss Chadwick

General Rules:

The game is divided into Day and Night phases. During the Day, all players will meet in an open thread that I will post. By the end of the Day (called Twilight), decide on a player to vote for, if any. A player who receives a majority vote (or who has the most votes by Twilight) will be lynched.

During the Night, all players with powers will submit their night actions, if any, in their personal QTs. At the same time, the Murderers will meet in their own group QT to decide on a target for their Night kill.

Town’s goal is to eliminate all the Wolves. The Wolves’ goal is to eliminate Town, or reduce their numbers to the point where it becomes impossible for Town to eliminate the Wolves.

Please make at least five game-related comments per Day. Non-participation may get you lynched, or worse, replaced.

Only vote in the Vote Thread. No game-related chat after Twilight. And most importantly, NO EDITING POSTS FOR ANY REASON. Please do not change any post, even if you’ve made a spelling, grammar, or coding error. If you are caught editing a post, you will be mod-killed.
