Like the board game, you have been invited to a manor, in this case, the Howard Philip Manor. The owner of the manor is gravely ill in a hospital and has chosen some of the brightest people he has known through his life to spend the night in the house. All who survive the night will be granted partial ownership of the manor once the owner passes. However, as per the game, trouble arises.
The concept of the game is simple: you survive. One or more of you will be given the role of an independently acting murderer. You will be given a character to work with, a layout of the house, and the rest is up to you. To win the game, the players must work together to figure out who the killer is by dawn (7:00 a.m. gametime) If no killer is brought forward, then the game ends with everyone being arrested and the killer accusing all the others.
The accusation of a killer is a bit more complex. Instead of simply saying "I believe [member] is the killer because last game he was very quiet..." that will not fly. Instead you must use evidence. If someone was killed with a rope, then the suspects HAD to have been in a place where there was rope at sometime (such as the kitchen) and had to have been out of sight for the murder during the time of death.
I will keep a timer in the thread title. I hope this will make up since the last game ending badly and regains everyone's trust to play these games.
I want to have around 10 people for this game. I'll leave sign-ups open for about a week to field any questions because I admit this is much different than anything we've played before. Do not hesitate to join because I will ensure that only I know everyone's roles.
I'll update this with rules periodically.
Sign-Up (note, none of these people are DEFINITELY in the game, instead these are the people to make it to the first 20 sign-ups):
