    [LANDROVAL] Solve-A-Mystery Roleplay Contest - Saturday, Oct 24 at 4:00pm ST

    Join us for a Solve-A-Mystery Roleplay Contest
    Saturday, October 24 at 4:00pm - 7:00pm servertime on Landroval

    Meet at Windy Acres Ranch, 9 Chestnut Street, Raglan, Bree-land homesteads
    Solve a mystery, roleplay, and enjoy fine music!

    The event features a detailed roleplaying story and is open to characters of all levels.
    The game is designed to be played by any number people.

    The event begins with a costume contest.
    Put on your best Halloween costume. You will be called up on stage and have 30 seconds to show off for the crowd.
    The audience votes for the winners. The top three winners will go home with gold and Turbine Points!

    The mystery game begins at the conclusion of the costume contest.
    During the mystery game, our actors will take scripted roles in an exciting story.
    You will roleplay a Bounder, Ranger, sheriff, or someone else appointed to investigate.
    Clues are gained by interviewing the witnesses, roleplaying in-character.
    You will have 30 minutes to interview the witnesses, located in adjacent houses.

    After completing your investigation, tell the host who the culprit is and other details of the crime.
    The first three people who solves the mystery with the most correct deductions win prizes!

    Participants should show up dressed appropriately for a Halloween masquerade party or as investigators.
    Please leave weapons larger than daggers at home. Pets should be kept outdoors.

    After the mystery is solved, participants are invited to stay for a charity auction and concert.

    The highest bidder in each auction must donate the promised amount directly to the charity to receive the items.

    Here are the rules for the costume contest --
    • Each contestant can exhibit only one costume. It should be Halloween-themed.
    • Contestants must go on stage only when their name is called by the host (Kiralynn). If a contestant doesn’t respond promptly, or goes on stage before his name is called, he will be disqualified.
    • Contestants will have approximately 20 seconds on stage. Each contestant should walk onto the stage, display their costume, perform any emotes, and then exit on the other side.
    • Contestants can perform emotes, use special items, or display pets to help show off their costume.
    • After each contestant has a turn on the stage, the host will call all contestants onto the stage for final judging.
    • Any sort of unsportsmanlike behavior (such as spamming) will result in disqualification and your vote will not count.
    • At the end, each participant and member of the audience can cast one vote for the winner. You can vote for yourself.
