    Murder at the Magic Kingdom!

    Welcome to Murder at the Magic Kingdom.
    Here are the rules. Please read carefully and let me know if there are any questions. I know there is alot but you can ask as many questions along the way. Sign up is closed so I'm sorry if you missed it. There can be another game if this one goes well so keep checking back.

    1. This game has a lot of role playing in it. In other words, you will be speaking as if you are the character you chose to play the game as. Formats do not have to be exact but I would like it to be similar to this.
    Characters name: "What you are saying" *what you are doing*
    So this is what it would look like if I was Mickey Mouse.
    Mickey: "Golly, I'm really scared!!" *runs to the corner and hides*
    If you have a question or comment that does not relate to your character but relates to yourself, please use OOC: before your text. OOC stands for out of character. So if I wanted to comment on something another person said because I liked it, I could say:
    OOC: That's funny! Good one!
    You can also ask questions that way. I find this makes it easier to know when a character is speaking and when you yourself is speaking.

    2. There are three different assignments you can have. Detective, Murderer, or Park Guest.

    Murderer: We have enough for two murderers, but in the interest of time, and to avoid confusion (at least for the first game) we will stick with one murderer. This person will decide who to get rid of every 3 days. However, the murderer must wait for the go ahead from me to murder a character. Once they have decided who it is, they will PM that person and tell them they have been murdered, that person is NOT allowed to tell anyone who the murderer is. Please don't do it, it takes all the fun out of the game. The murderer can decide how they would have killed this character. Since we are in the Magic Kingdom they might use certain rides or attractions from that park. If a detective PM's you and makes an arrest, you must confess that you are the character and the game will be over.

    Detectives: Since there are about 20 people playing this game, I have decided to have 4 detectives. There will be 2 pairs of detectives, meaning that two of the detectives will be working together, they will know who each other are, and can consult with each other about clues before making an arrest. The same goes for the other pair of detectives. The pairs will not know who the other pairs are. So in their mind they are still fair game to be the murderer. I would like the pairs to be in agreement on arrests before making them. Detectives may only make one arrest per time period between murders, but be careful! If you make too many false arrests the guests of the Magic Kingdom can vote for a replacement and in that case they may vote the murderer into power. If this happens the game will be over because the murderer has won. Detectives must also PM me first before making an arrest and wait for the go ahead from me to PM that person. This is strictly to avoid confusion and to avoid too many arrests in too short a time period. If you are falsely accused you simply must PM the detective back and tell them they were wrong. Then the park guests may decide if a new detective should be placed in power. If the murderer successfully kills all the detectives and gets away with it, the murderer has won and the game is over.

    Park Guests: You keep the game rolling and the fun. Part of the fun of this game is acting like the characters. Going to different places around the park and doing what you want to do. You have the power to get rid of detectives who are not doing their job. If the time comes we will have a vote to see if the park guests want someone new or want to keep it the same. Since you will not know who the detectives are it will be hard for you to give suggestions. But you are definately allowed to post in the thread if you have thoughts on who it might be given the clues. Also be careful because if you are right you might anger the murderer and you might be next.

    3.
    If you are murdered.....I'm sorry but you may not post as your character anymore. You can however post out of character as much as you want as long as you are not helping the detectives or giving clues. Don't completely rule out the game though, cause I have been known to have ghosts come back to give clues.
    If you are falsely arrested.....You will simply PM the detective back and tell them you are not the killer. But you may not tell anyone else you have been falsely arrested until the game is over. The guests will find out that a false arrest was made. But they will not find out who it was.

    4. CLUES!
    Clues will be vague at first and really start to narrow down once there are a few out there. This is done so that the game lasts a while and that we have fun. Clues range from a number of things. They are most likely about the character themselves, but don't count out things that have to do with other characters your character might interact with in the movies.
    For example - Let's say clue 1 is a piece of green cloth, so maybe Mushu doesn't wear green but I'm pretty sure that friend of his Mulan certainly does.
    That is a vague clue, which will happen towards the beginning. Mostly so you don't rule someone out too quickly.

    5. Management:
    I will be known as Managment. My job is update you to all the things that happen during the game. I will let you know who has been killed and I will let you know when false arrests happen. I will also give you any and all clues.

    6. Please have room in your PM box so you will know if you are chosen for an assignment or if you are getting arrested or murdered.

    Here is the list of players. If someone has been killed I will edit this post and show that on the list:

    crashbunny - Marie
    The_Heat - Robin Hood
    devkxl - Dopey
    dznynut - Baloo
    Stitch - Stitch
    AKQJ10 - Peter Pan
    GaRain - Goofy
    dzney4lyf - Scar
    hillo - Captain Jack Sparrow
    SnwhtNdwrfs - Snow White
    SecondStar - Jessica Rabbit - Murdered!
    Disneybratt - Ariel
    JEDIPRINCESS - Kim Possible - Murdered!
    DissyLove - Wendy
    Passarino6 - Jafar - Murdered!
    PumpkinJack81 - Jack Skellington
    iwannabeminnie - Minnie Mouse
    disneydreamer98 - Mrs. Potts

    Clues so far:
    -several black hairs were found on Jafar's body
    -a rare flower found only near water
    -a piece of red cloth was found near the Magic Carpets of Aladdin

    Now without further ado, we begin.

    When you hear the knell of a requiem bell weird glows gleam where spirits dwell
    Restless bones etherealize rise as spooks of every size
    Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize!

    OOC: SecondStar it doesn't have to perfect, just say what you think they might say.
    Also its not a huge deal but it might be helpful to write your character before you talk until everyone gets to know who people are. That way you don't have to look at the first thread each time.
    You guys are doing great! I love it!

    Maybe I should choose somebody other than Tinkerbell since all she talks is pixie dust!!!
