Welcome everyone to our second murder game. Some of you are new to the game and some of you have played before. I am posting the same rules as before but with a few minor changes. If you have not played before please read these rules carefully, especially for the role you will be playing. I have put especially important things in red.
Rule number one is especially important and I would like everyone to try and stick to the format to avoid confusion!
If you have played before please reference #2 dealing with the murderer because there have been changes to this rule. Also rule #2 delaing with detectives has been slightly changed. Look for the red parts.
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!!! Which we have not done before so please let me know if you have any questions about this. This person will decide who to get rid of every few 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 Epcot 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.
How will two murderers work???
I'm glad you asked. I will be in close contact with both murderers. They will be told by me when to strike. No one will know which murder goes with which murderer. So for a while the detectives will have an extremely hard job!!! Once a few murders have taken place I will give a clue as to which clues go with which murderer. Then the detectives will know which clues go together and at that time they may want to attempt an arrest.
The murderers are not working together, they will not know who each other are. It is possible that one of them might kill off the other. Then of course the guests will be informed and it will be easier to figure out who the remaining murderer is.
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.
Detectives may not make two accusations because there are two murderers. One at a time only, sorry!
Detectives must make sure they specify which person they think killed which characters. If they are arresting before two murderers are revealed.
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.
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.
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 an example of a vague clue, which will happen towards the beginning. Mostly so you don't rule someone out too quickly.
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.
