When characters die

Postby River889 » November 23rd, 2004, 2:26 pm

If people are killing off "characters" other than the main character that gets murdered, what are they supposed to do for the rest of the party?

Are we also trying to figure out who killed A Big Scam, or just the person who gets murdered at the party?

On that same line, is the Super Sleuth the person who figures out who the murderer of the main character is -- or, if other people are murdered, do they have to figure out who murdered them as well?

This is described in the How To Play Brochure / Invitation. There are really 2 methods you could use. The first one is described in the Brochure. With this method any unplanned murder victims will be become Inspectors called in to help investigate the new murder. This Inspector will know the cause of death, but not the murderer.

The second method is a new one I just developed. If you have any characters left over from your game or extra character packets that have not been used then you could print copies of these to have on hand & give them out to any murder victims, so they have a real part to play! If not then use method 1.

Actually the murders are tied together and done by the same person so if you solve one your solve them both!

I usually give certificates to people that solve any of the murders. This is up to you, but in the case of the murderer I only give them a certificate if they solve another murder.

Hope this helps!
