On July 1st, at roughly 7:30 p.m. EST people gathered at Eventageous’ Event Hall. Contests were touched on quickly and then it was onto the main event explanation. The event would be done in 3 rounds - RP, PvM and PvP. Whoever earned the most points would win the main event prize of 10 million gp. A book was locked down with the point values of the items and clues to locate.
Round 1 - RP
Bliss explained her staff was late returning with some last minute party supplies. Wondering what the hold up was, she invited guests to join her in Occlo to find out for themselves.
Near the bank a gruesome discovery was made. The lifeless body of Natty, one of Bliss’ staff, was hidden partially behind a tree. Finding no pulse, Bliss ushered her guests away. She urged them to go look for the rest of the staff while she reported the murder to the guards. One guest noticed an important clue, a piece of torn red robe, by the body.
Later they met back at the keep and shared what they found. There was no signs of the staff anywhere but there was ruined party supplies scattered all around.
(Guests turned these in for points. Round 1 was tallied up and announced.)
Round 2 - PvM
Bliss sent guests to search the Minoc woods for her missing staff. She explained some of them might be gathering raw materials. There was also the question of safety. Bliss cautioned them to be well armed. After all, there was a murderer about!
A search of the woods lead to the discovery of Calvin, a well known local man. His body was ripped apart. (A book described the scene and suggested that guests search for more clues.)
There was a bloody footprint trail leading up to the Ice Cave.
Inside the cave were more bodies with even more clues. Guests gathered them all quickly and returned back to the keep.
(Round 2 is quickly tallied.)
Round 3 - PvP
Most of the staff was accounted for at this point but one, Paige, Bliss’ most trusted and valued staff member. It is suggested a search of Paige’s private quarters be conducted. The room is packed full of clues. There was a drawer full of gifts from two different men, a journal gave even more insight and there was a threatening letter crumpled on the rug. After the search things became clear. Paige, while very much in love with Calvin, had to deal with an obsessive stalker. Marcus blamed Bliss and Calvin for Paige’s rejection. (While guests investigated the room a man in a red robe left the party.)
A guest noticed a rune to Bucs and the group decided to head there. There were more supplies to be collected but there was also a nasty surprise.
One of the guests was Marcus in disguise! (wearing a red robe) He attacked the guests, singling out those not with the group first. Soon the guests are grouped up and chasing Marcus around Bucs Den.
After awhile they managed to catch and kill him. There still was no sign of Paige.
(Guests return to keep again and tallies are made once again.
Back at the keep a reward of 5 million gold was offered for Paige’s return. A clue pointed the guests to Yew. They quickly searched and found Paige alone on an island. (In the journal there was mention of this island. Calvin and Paige came here to play music many times. On that night Calvin was going to ask her to marry him - hence the setup.) She was drinking poison trying to kill herself. Mamasita tried to soothe her while another lied to her and said, "Calvin is alive!" The guest, Mayte, even went so far as to forge a letter from Calvin! Paige noticed it wasn't Calvin’s handwriting and ran back to the keep thinking Marcus sent the man to get her. Bliss calmed her down and sent her off to bed.
Once everybody was back at the keep, they headed up to the tavern. It was time to unwind with some Minoc Marvel Mist (MMM) and peanut butter cookies. Lotto tickets were handed out to all guests. Several items were rewarded.
