Round 3 - The Will

Early in the morning the contestants are awoken by a knock on their door. Elizabeth is waiting at the door and invites each of the contestants down to breakfast served by her and her grandmother. They can tell by the redness in her eyes that she has been crying, it doesn’t look like she’s slept much. The storm seems to finally have broken with the sun shining through the windows as they make their way down to the dining room.

 

At the breakfast table, Carla fusses over them, insisting she makes them whatever they want. As time goes on, the contestants might realize that Chaeri and Arabella are not there. If they ask about it, Carla will mention that the detectives let them go, they are no longer suspects. The contestants begin to notice Carla looking more annoyed than usual, she seems to be struggling with breakfast. Maua asks Carla if she needs any help with it, “Oh no, I’m sorry it’s taking so long, they took all the knives you see. Something about needing to test them all.” 

 

After everyone has been eating for around an hour Katrina finally saunters into the dining room. She snaps her fingers at Elizabeth, “I need a drink, now.” The Detectives follow shortly after with Sophia and Alexander, “Glad to see everyone is awake, everyone being together makes this so much easier.” Detective Green grins at the group. 

 

Scarlett pulls a piece of paper from his coat, some contestants may recognise it as the will that they saw the previous night. “New evidence has come to light, and it doesn’t shine kindly on a lot of you. This here is Charles’ will, I will be reading the most crucial parts to you all now.” 

 

Detective Scarlett clears his throat. “All shares in my businesses as well as all current contracts I leave to my associate Mr. Pierre Augustin, entrusting he’ll finish what I started.” Green gives a sharp look towards Snow as Scarlett continues speaking. “To my good friend Oliver Ratcliffe, who has always been by my side, I leave my art collection which I trust he will hold close to his heart.” Green shoots another glance this time towards Ratcliffe.

 

“My estates, money and all other worldly possessions I leave to my beloved wife Jessica White…” At this Katrina stands up screaming, “This must be an old will, I demand it be checked! Charles would never!” Miles raises his hand, “Please let me continue Miss White I can assure you this is quite correct. To my wife Katrina, I leave you with the amount of love you have in your heart for me, absolutely nothing.” Katrina begins to scream again, picking up the drink Elizabeth had brought her and throwing it against the wall. ”I WISH I HAD KILLED HIM! HE’LL BURN IN HELL FOR THIS!” She knocks some plates off the table before storming out of the room continuing to scream. Scarlett turns to Green, “Follow her and make sure there are no more murders committed in this house.” Green sighs annoyed but does as he’s told.

 

Scarlett clears his throat again as Elizabeth hurries to clean up the mess on the floor. “There is one last section I would like to share just in case it applies to anyone here. ‘To anyone who comes forward claiming to be my child legitimate or otherwise will receive nothing’.” Scarlett looks around the room, “As you can see, we will need to be examining you all closely as these new motives have come to light. No one is to leave this mansion unless told otherwise. And seeing how several of you are unable to follow simple commands explicitly made for your own safety” he glares at several of them, if not all “I recommend you follow this one as I won’t be as lenient as I was last night.” He turns on his heel and exits the room. Carla glances around the room quickly. “Does anyone want some tea?”

 

The contestants will have the rest of the day to do as they please as long as they stay in the mansion but they will be closely watched by both Detectives. 

 

If the contestants choose to spend time in the garden, (the detectives have allowed this due to the fact that it is fenced in and the police cars are still outside keeping everyone in):

 

Walking through the garden, a glint of something shiny hits the contestants eye. Something gleams from one of the garden beds close to the house. If someone chooses to investigate a large kitchen knife can be found sticking out from one of the bushes. The knife appears to be clean but from its positioning it is clear that it fell or was thrown from one of the windows. The contestants can choose to keep this information to themselves or inform the detectives.

 

If the contestants choose to go to the west wing:

 

From a neighboring room, the contestants can hear the voices of Carla and Elizabeth. There is visible distress in their tone “What are we supposed to do grandma?? We have nothing! Nowhere to go, no finances-” Elizabeth cries out. “Shh shh, now dear, we need to calm down. We will figure something out, but to do that, you need to keep yourself together. Can you do that?” Carla speaks quietly. Elizabeth does not respond, but one can tell that in her silence there is agreement and attempts to do so.

 

If the contestants choose to the east wing:

From a neighboring room the contestants can hear the raised voices of Alexander and Sophia. “I’ve looked through everything. This is ridiculous. We had a deal Soph.” Alexander sighs. “I know. It’s completely aggravating. His death is no question well deserved.” The sounds of footsteps give the impression that she’s pacing around the room. “I want my money. I did too much for that scumbag to just get away with making us look like fools.” “He made us both look like fools. But one thing is for sure. It won’t happen again.” Alexander’s voice is dark, “Exactly.”

  • You must show the reading of the will

Round 2 - Everyone's a Suspect

Detective Miles pushes past Nicolas into the house and looks the group of contestants up and down. “We’ve been informed about a murder. Is that correct?” Sophia pushes her way to the front of the group, “This way please.” She runs off towards the hallway and Detective Miles follows behind her. Detective Mason turns to the group of contestants, “None of you are going anywhere, this is an active crime investigation, I’ll need to start taking statements.”

 

“Alright all of you follow me.” Detective Mason leads the contestants through the house quickly glancing in each room before stopping in one of the many lounge rooms. “This will do, all of you can wait here for now. We’ll call you in, one by one, don’t go anywhere and don’t touch anything.” Mason leaves the room and goes to join the investigation, the contestants will be left alone for 30 minutes before both the detectives return so you can use this time to talk to the other contestants. The two detectives will call each contestant one by one and take them to Charles’ study for their interrogation.

 

You can decide which order you would like your character to go in, you will need to claim a spot by sending a message within 2 weeks or it will be picked randomly for you. This is to allow everyone plenty of time to work on their videos.

Each character will have an individual interrogation with the two detectives. After each interview is finished, Elizabeth will be waiting outside for each of them. “I’ve been instructed to find you a room, the detectives don’t want anyone leaving just yet.” 

 

Elizabeth will lead each contestant to their room, after a while they will receive a knock on the door. Opening it they will find the two detectives standing there, “Mister Rust and Mister Moss had solid alibis for the murder, they've been allowed to leave, the rest of you not so much. You need to stay here until we can figure out exactly what is going on here. Don’t even try sneaking out.”

 

If the contestants chose to leave their rooms during the night they will encounter one of these scenarios. You can choose only one.


If your character decides to investigate
 

Kitchen

The contestants looking for a late night snack will stumble across Carla hunched over a pile of dishes. She’ll turn around and stare at the contestants shocked, “Oh! I didn’t expect to see anyone up so late. I wanted to get a head start on these dishes, so many wine glasses to clean.”

 

Study

Walking through the hallways the contestants see a dim light coming from Charles’ study and they can hear hushed voices arguing within. “Did you find anything?” “No, keep looking!” Opening the door the contestants find Sophia and Alexander rummaging through Charles’ desk. Sophia pulls out a paper triumphantly “Yes-!” She looks up shocked seeing the contestants standing there, a voice booms behind them. “What is that you found there?” Detective Miles pushes past the contestants and grabs the paper from her hands. The words Last Will and Testament can be seen scrawled across the top.

 

Lounge

Walking past the lounge room the contestants will see the flickering light of the fireplace, peeking through the door, Katrina can be seen on the phone pacing. “Can you believe it, bastard is finally gone. Just need to wait for these idiot police officers to leave and I can start calling lawyers about the estate.” She hears a bump coming from another room and quickly hangs up the phone before running off.

 

If your character decides to stay in their room for the night

 

If your contestant stays in their room for the whole night, they will be awoken by a woman loudly sobbing.

Detective Mason will be guarding the front door the entire night. Trying any back door the contestants will find that they have been bolted shut, it seems someone is taking this investigation very seriously.

Round 1 - Lights Out!

The weather begins to worsen throughout the night and rain and thunder can almost be heard over the blaring music. The party has started to wind down for the night and a lot of the guests have started to trickle out and head home. The contestants for one reason or another are some of the last guests to remain at the party. Charles and Katrina are mingling around and talking to their remaining guests, this might be your character's last chance to talk to them before they leave. 

 

Charles excuses himself from the guests for a moment, “We should have a final toast, wish us well on our journey. You all wait right here, this occasion calls for only the best refreshments.” before disappearing towards the cellar. As the storm rages on the lights in the building begin to flicker before turning off completely plunging the mansion into complete darkness. As some of the contestants start to panic, Alexander Plum’s voice can be heard, “The storm probably caused the power to go out. Not to worry, I can fix it.” After a few minutes the power returns to the building, during the blackout due to the darkness the contestants will be unable to find any of the judge characters. If the characters want to take this chance to move freely around the mansion they will have a few minutes to do so without anyone watching before the power is restored.

 

As the power turns on Chaeri is walking through one of the mansion's many hallways. As the lights flicker on a body on the floor in a pool of blood is illuminated before them. Charles lies dead on the floor, a broken bottle of wine lies next to him. Carla runs into the hallway behind them, “Oh, sorry this area is off limits you should really head back to the…” Carla freezes seeing the body and lets out a loud screech causing the rest of the contestants as well as the judge characters to run into the room. Alexander and Elizabeth are the last two to arrive at the scene. Katrina screams and throws herself onto her husband’s body, she starts wildly pointing at everyone around her, “Which one of you was it, MURDERERS!” Sophia, looking pale, announces that she will go and call the cops before running out the room.

 

Elizabeth steps forward placing a hand on Katrina’s shoulder attempting to comfort her. Katrina whirls around and slaps her across the face. “Get away from me! My Charles is dead!” The contestants can attempt to comfort her if they wish, if they attempt to leave the scene Alexander will block the door. “I don’t think anyone should leave, I mean there’s been a murder!”

 

The contestants can attempt to argue with him, Nicholas manages to push past him and makes their way to the front door. As they swing it open to leave, two detectives stand before them. Detective Miles looks at Nicholas up and down, “Going somewhere?”

  • Show Charles leaving

  • Show the lights getting turned off
