Two shady figures meet behind the warehouse at the docks. A dim light shines on them...
"These are the new sets of orders from Command." one says.

"Excellent. Now, if you excuse me, I've got things to attend too." the other says.

Posted Image
"Hey!" Officer Fields calls out.

"Run!" one of the figures says.

They quickly outrun the officer, escaping him into the inky black darkness.

Elsewhere, under a similar dim light, Congressman Bob meets General Alvin Stanley, and another curious person.
"Look Congressman, if they don't get it right today, I'll have no choice but to enact X-K2P." the person says.

"We must delay it as long as we can." Bob says.

"I'm not sure I like the prospect of silencing the citizens of this sleepy town. Maybe we just make them sign confidentiality papers." General Stanley suggests.

"Perhaps...however, if they even go near those tunnels again, I'll have no choice. Keep them away from those tunnels at all costs."

"Very well." Bob says.

The next morning, the townspeople assemble near the pond. A National Guard truck pulls up, and two soldiers exit with shotguns. The townspeople look nervous.
Posted Image
"Relax. They're only here to make sure the convicted doesn't start a fight." Bob says.

"What's that?" someone asks, pointing to the box.

"I was just about to ask Officer Harrison myself." Phelps starts. "Why is your badge on a box which says "To Soviet Union"?"

"Ummm...I don't know?" Harrison says. "I certainly didn't put it there, but thanks for finding my badge."

"Whatever." Bob says. "Listen up. Today you'll be convicting one person from the group. There will be no investigating. All investigation actions will be ignored. Whoever has the most votes at the end of the day will be convicted, and sent to the Central Intelligence Building for serious questioning. You will not be returning."

The townsfolk share nervous looks with each other. They had to convict one of their own today, a friend, a neighbor, potentially a family member. It would truly separate a few people.

(Borrowed partly from Dragonator’s Mystery Manor)
1. There are 18 participants. If you commit to the game you are committing to contributing to the story and sticking with it to the end. I am trusting you all not to drop out halfway through, as that is never any fun.
2. You must search for clues. This means that an action must be specified. For example, you wish to search a room for hidden objects. The following is an example of how not to go about this:
"I wish to look for suspicious or hidden objects in this room".
Instead, you must be able to specify what you want to do. For example:
"I would like to open the drawers of the cabinet."
It is not required for you to specify exactly what you are doing and what you are looking for, but a generalized statement will not find you anything. Act like a detective and you will be fine.
3. This game is meant to be fun, so enjoy yourselves!
4. Please be patient with me between chapters, I will try to put up the chapter topics as quickly as possible, but, this might not be so all the time.
5. Please try to avoid editing your posts, as it can lead to suspicion against you. Just consider what you want to say before you say it, and you'll be fine.
6. Please remember that this is the early 1950’s. No iPods, digital cameras, cell phones, printers, computers, fax machines, or otherwise. No events past the current date either, or else people will view you as insane.
7. I won’t keep you in a certain room if you don’t want me too. You’ll always have the option of backtracking or researching the same place.
8. The host is usually always right. If you think I’ve made an error, then please discuss this in the discussion thread or feel free to PM me.
9. Failure to follow these rules will result in a warning. A second failure will result in the death of your character.
10. Remember that although a chapter has ended, that doesn’t mean that the day has concluded, and night actions can be used.
10b. There are also chapter actions. Those of you with chapter actions have the ability to use them at the end of each chapter.
11. No Metagaming please. Also, don’t base suspicions on how the person looks.
Rules may be added or deleted as the game goes on based on game play.
12. This is the 1950’s, the middle of the Cold War. You’re under constant worry of potential nuclear Armageddon, so act like it. The Communists are your enemies in this game, don’t forget that. Also, anytime historical facts from the 1950’s are brought in is a big plus.

SPECIAL CHAPTER SEVEN RULES (please read)

1) There will be no investigations today. All of these actions will be ignored.
2) To vote, please bold the name of whoever you're voting. Same to unvote.
3) Whoever has the most votes at the end of the day (This day will last 96 hours), will be voted off. I don't care if this person has one vote or eighteen votes.

So we do a good job of investigating, find the tunnels and all that, and even THAT leads to our demise?   *oh2* I'm beginning to thnk we were screwed from the outset.   :hmpf_bad:

It's time for us to put our heads together, people.  If we don't make a good choice here, it might cost us our lives.  Quite literally, I'm afraid.   :sick:

Anyone want to start going over the evidnece that we think we have?  I know no one wants to be the first to point the finger, but we really need to talk things through, here.

I agree- it's strting to smell like a set-up. Just don't tell that to those two guys with the guns.

Frankly, I think we need to compile a list of everything we've found. I mean everything.

I concur, our thoughts are too scrambled. We aren't getting much out of our findings. That needs to change now! We can't play around any longer. X-K2P is drawing closer!

Also I can't help but notice the National Guard on the left looks familiar somehow... Oh well... :sadnew:

Now you mention it...:laugh:

As for convicting, I have been taking notes on several occasions, and I reckon anyone who has been attempting to slow us down by advising agaisnt certain moves, or people who want to move to quickly, should be watched, especially with X-K2P around the corner. The fact they won't be coming back bothers me though. Even if they are found to be innocent they are still detained?

I suggest you gentlemen explain right away. The civillians are on edge, and no need to ship you off to Washington for no good reason, eh?

People slowing us down, and people speeding us up should be watched? :wacko:

Anyway, we should wait (sorry if that makes me watchable) for Officer Harrison to explain his badge before we start casting any votes.

I'm sorry, but our whole family has been with the town all day.  If anything, I think my family is being targeted.  You know Patrick was a senator for years, and is a prominent lawyer and citizen.  There are ample reasons for my family to be targeted.

...Tell of what? Like the Chief said, I was out on assigned patrol. But Louis, buddy, you can't leave your badge lying around. It's a sign of our authority.

We have clues, but none of them pertain to any certain people. I guess maybe we should review them, they might point to someone.

From what I think, some bastard tried to frame me. If I must always be under suspiscion now then so be it but I tell you I'm as American as they get. Fields old buddy you and I have to start jogging in the morning again.

What a night! It's a shame we have no idea who the two people docks are. Now I wonder if Officer Harrison was sloopy and left his badge on a crate for a "friend" or if he is being framed. Do you think that it is possible that a commie already got what ever was in the crate? Does anyone have any leads?

I think it's more likely that Officer Harrison is being framed.  I don't see any evidence against him, unless someone has learned something interesting that I am not privy to?

Congressman Bob, have the CIA (I'm assuming they are out there, past the National Guard perimeter) been able to assertain whether Valerie Jenkins or Jackie Harding were loyal Americans or Red Commie Bastards yet?

"I can't say anything about that yet." Congressman Bob says.

"Let's talk about what we did last night." Councilman Ackerson says. "I know I had a great night!"

By the way, this is supposed to be a time when you're throwing out random accusations, just like in the Real Red Scare. Don't be afraid to place a random vote or anything, because if you don't vote for anyone, then I'll have to either go into Sudden Death Mode or throw red herrings out until you do.
