Three Ways To Play…
1️⃣ Create Your Very Own Mystery
Create your own murder mystery story. Others then try to solve your mystery. Add a setting— characters with some backstory to them— some hints or clues, riddles, etc… as the writer, you obviously know how the story ends and who the killer is… it’s up to other forum members to attempt to solve it how you saw/wrote it. The person who solves the mystery then goes on to make their own story for others to try and solve.
2️⃣ Welcome To Thornbridge Manor...
This way requires using ONLY the Dartmoor map in H3. A member posts some screenshots and adds them in their post. The goal is to “make a scene” anywhere on the map. Post it, and see if people can solve the mystery…
For Example: Have any NPC or NPC’s killed (using a certain weapon) try to guess how they were killed (gunshot, knife, etc.) maybe have 3 or more weapons laying out (one of which was the murder weapon) and see if someone can guess.
Place certain objects in various places throughout the map (Objects that are only obtainable on this particular map) and see if someone can figure out where exactly you got them, both to & from.
Take a photo of an NPC or object anywhere in the map and see if another member can replicate that very photo.
(I would like to add more to this in the future, so some ideas are definitely welcome @Nazareth ? you always have good ideas, maybe let’s hear some?)
3️⃣ HMF Murder Mystery Game
This way requires eleven (11) members max to start (it can be less) Ten members volunteer to play and one volunteers to be the “host.”
Once we have ten volunteers, the Host will Immediately PM all ten members to give them their roles.
- Guest (7)
- Detective (2) — Healer
- Murderer (1)
Only the Host will know the Identities of everyone… each day… the “murderer” Will PM the Host on who they wish to “kill.” ONLY ONE KILL CAN TAKE PLACE WITHIN 24 HOURS.
Once the murderer chooses, it’s the job of the host to publicly say who was killed in a post. It’s the job of the guests to communicate with one another, either in a PM or in the thread publicly. Never say what your roles are obviously and be careful who you trust!.. The “Detectives” Are no different from guests, but detectives also have the power to bring back one of the already deceased as long as they are alive. (Detectives tell the Host who they wanna bring back.) However, once the detectives are killed, no more members can be “brought back” at that point forward. The game ends when the killers ID is finally revealed. After every incorrect guess, the killer will strike. Choose carefully… Finally, The Host may also throw out hints / clues here and there to either help or steer members in the wrong direction. That’s entirely up to the host.
When taking a final guess on who guests think the killer is, all guests must be in agreement on that person. If everyone can’t come to an agreement, a poll can be made and guests may vote.
Just specify which way you wanna play before beginning ( 1, 2, 3 )
