A crime happens (like the Top of the christmas tree is stolen.) and there are from 5-10 suspects, each with a back story and such.
They all get a chance to make up an alibi, and accuse the other players. (Ousiders can join in on the fun)
After a bit the cops (me) will release a clue. Then the accusing will go on for a bit. Remember you are trying to figure out who did the crime.
I will put a poll up on another thread, and you have to vote who is not guilty, (everyone can do this, you don't have to play to vote) and who ever has the highest vote will be released, they can still accuse and such but they will no longer be suspects.
Then the process repeats over again until we are down to two people.
Once it is down to two people (or in case of a two man crime) you will then vote who is guilty...
It may not make sense now but as we play it will make more sense.
once you sign up you will get a PM confirming whether you are still playing or not, then as we get closer you will get a PM saying if you are innocent or not. If you don't have the PM ability, send me a e-mail, and I will reply.
If you sign up and confirm that you are playing then you will remain in the mystery unless you tell me. If not and you don't post at least four times (not in a row) then you will still be counted as playing, which means that if I want to I can make you guilty.
