CLUES: The Beginning

Standing Along the Path to Crowley Mansion
The mysterious and dilapidating Crowley Mansion stands high atop the cliff before you. You feel a cold, damp, uneasy feeling that raises the hairs on the back of your neck. You now realize the fear and reluctance of the good citizens of Point Heceta to venture along the winding path up the cliff to this decrepit manor.
The October winds blow leaves and a damp cold sea breeze along the path as you begin your journey up the cliff. Looming in the overcast and fog covered sky stands the mansion, which is only faintly visible from where you stand.
What could have happened to old man Crowley and what hidden mysteries remain locked in the rooms of this ghastly manor? Could evil spirits, apparitions, or the ghostly phantoms of the deceased truly haunt this mansion? Or could it be that the spirit of a deceased Dorian Crowley does not rest and awaits revenge on those that may have contributed to his death?
And what do you know about one and other? -Sketchy backgrounds, and hidden skeletons of one another’s past. Each of you knows something about the other, but what do these clues mean? The only way to discover these answers is to venture into this manor to discover the Mystery at Crowley Mansion. :^^D

Pete Falklin has met you at the mansion. He asks each of you to introduce yourself to the group as he does not remember everyone.
"Please provide your name and your profession (or) something about yourself to the group. This may be important", Pete adds, "in case you don't make it out alive..."
Brickster introduces himself as a private detective and aspiring mystery writer on the side. He also adds that our task will be to determine the answers to the following questions as part of this mystery:
What happened to Dorian Crowley and where? (meaning what room)
If a murder was committed, how did it happen? (meaning with what weapon)
Who committed the murder? (which of the 12 characters did it - excluding Brickster & Pete)
The wind begins to howl as a cold chilling breeze blows through the air. Pete urges, "let's hurry and do this so that we can enter the mansion before we catch pneumonia". :^^D

I'm Mr. Lego Bildur, and I work for the Lego City Construction Department (LCCD). I'm quite surprised that you don't remember me. As a construction worker, you should constantly see me working on new construction projects around the city.

NOTE: this is to make sure everyone is ready to start as well. Once we have everyone, we can take a group picture and enter.

Anyway, I'm Bloody Jay, almost-convicted murderer and professional Viking. I recently obtained a set of ancient armor, and created my very own historically inaccurate helmet!

In particular, I have spent considerable time in the study of political theory, as well as anthropological and historical acoounts from around the globe. The entwining of those two favored areas of intrest means that I have spent a great deal of time studying ancient and medieval political thought, though I'll try to be on good behavior on this excursion and not bore anyone to tears. At the very least, this should be interesting.

My name is Xwingyoda, but you can call me Yoda for short. I am a corporate attorney, that means that I don't plead in court but I run tough negotiations for my clients. Having travelled a lot, it is normal for me to have an international clientèle.
That little mystery is quite amusing, it will be so different from the cases I usually handle.

Long time since Prague... I was dead tired after that trip. I am, as you may know, an attorney. I handle business transactions through-out various parts of the world. I am looking forward to exploring the local landscape, and am planning a walking tour of the surrounding countryside, if anyone is interested in tagging along.

But let me introudce myself. My name is Jon! I have my reasons for coming to the mansion, lets say I'm trying to keep a low profile. I am a bounty hunter by profession, but lately things have been going bad. When I'm not bounty-huntering I like to let out my anger by playing sport, of course the anger transforms into pure talent! ;) Let's hope everyone keeps on the right side of me whilst in the mansion!
