I actually agree with Yugi, Hook and Cassette Tape is looking good. Though NightOwl's Whip/Camera combo could work too, but I feel like Ryven had a point about that leaning more towards Suffication.

Either way, Yugi, I totally support this idea.


Never mind. If it were the Hook, Fishy TOTALLY would have been the way to go there... Hmmmmm...

Gonna look at this again.

He replaced summer with cold which might make gift a viable option again.

Exactly.

And honestly, with Cruel, Blood Stain, and Severe Injury... I'm leaning towards Bamboo Tip over Whip. With the Gift.

So far we have:

Cause of Death - Suffocation, Severe Injury, Loss of Blood, Illness/Disease, Poisoning, Accident
Location of Crime - Pub, Bookstore, Restaurant, Hotel, Hospital, Building Site
State of the Scene - Bits and Pieces, Ashes, Water Stain, Cracked, Disorderly, Tidy
Day of Crime - Weekday, Weekend, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter
Weather - Sunny, Stormy, Dry, Humid, Cold, Hot
Trace At the Scene - Fingerprint, Footprint, Bruise, Blood Stain, Bodily Fluid, Scar
General Impression - Common,Creative, Fishy, Cruel, Horrible, Suspenseful

Guesses so far:

MP: theLeslie > Unarmed/Notebook
Ryven: Nightowl > Stone/Surveillance Camera
Remiel: theLeslie > Explosives/Notebook

Guesses left: Nightowl, Rel, Yugi, Rapt, Christa, theLeslie, Phoenix



So with the above information in mind, I think that Nightowl and theLeslie are STILL our best suspects because of Nighty's Gift and Leslie's Ice Skates

Nightowl: Stone or Bamboo Tip + Gift fits Clue 1, Clue 2, Clue 4 (Replacement), Clue 5, and Clue 6.
theLeslie: Ice Skates + Notebook fits Clue 1, Clue 2, Clue 4 (Replacement), Clue 5, and Clue 6.

I feel like we're shooting at a target and getting all around it but haven't hit the bulls-eye yet.

Replacing Clue #5 --

Murderer's Personality - Arrogant, Despicable, Furious, Greedy, Forceful, Perverted

Offline Rel Mayer

Ok,  I was looking through the main page. And something caught my eye.

Madame's Wrench and Drill could cause server injury that may not be related to loss of blood, suffocation, poisoning, accidents.

And also Exam Paper could relate to a bookstore. More so than a Pub, Restaurant, Hotel, Hospital. Students are usually disorderly, Cold, and Cruel. Blood stains would relate to tools.

Just an idea!

And students are perverted too.


Offline theLeslie

I think Rel could use some scrutinizing.  I see cold, and I see the scarf, and keep getting stuck on that pairing.  Vegetables also like to be cold, carton(vague...) could want to be cold if full of juice or milk.  Bats will leave blood, Electrocution and Radiation are both pretty cruel. 

edit: Also, maybe it's just me. xD  But when I see cruel, and perverse as clues, I can't help but think whip.  Then again, I have no idea what a bamboo tip is..  tip to what?  I feel the same way about carton, it is missing a vital piece of information.  Nothing exists as a carton, it is a carton of something. >.<

You just always think it's me, Rel.  :'(

There are better location options for my Exam Paper than Bookstore. And there are much better locations if Blythe wanted to point to my Means.

The Location is most often the strongest clue we investigators get. But when and how Blythe pays his clues is important too.

I agree with Ryven that NightOwl and theLeslie are our prime suspects... Whip/Gift and Metal Chain/Notebook respectively.

Offline theLeslie

I wish one guess would have cleared my name, but I suppose that would make this game very easy for the investigators, and very difficult for the murderers.  Seeing as we have to guess the right person and the right combination, we can not afford to waste any other guesses.

I would like some feedback on my guess before I commit too it.

Night Owl,

Whip (Perverse and cruel and bloody)

Watch (Cold, because metal, and because it could fit almost anywhere so it's what I would have picked as the evidence if I was the criminal)

I don't think Watch fits any of the clues.

Offline theLeslie

Yeah, that's why watch makes such a great piece of evidence.  What could point at it?  The only thing I see that could possibly point to the watch would be "suspenseful" as suspense requires time in order to build into something climactic.  Short of something saying boldly Watch or Time, it's hard to point at a watch, and not point at a ton of other things too.  I feel like the watch is so wonderfully common place and vague that it makes the perfect evidence to have left.

What do you all think?

edit:  Also, I can't see cruel and perverse and not think of the whip.  Maybe it's just me. >.<

I still think Gift fits better than Watch.  But, I think either Ice Skates/Notebook or Metal Chain/Notebook are better bets at this point because they both carry notions of Severe Injury, Bookstore, Cruel, Cold, Perverted, though not necessarily Disorderly.  I'm thinking that the Disorderly clue was one made out of trying to be innocuous because it seems like the other options would lead us too far off in relation to the other clues.  Of course, you would be the murderer if those were the case, so it's really kind of hard to get unbiased input from you on those. :P

Offline theLeslie

Well, I hope we don't lose because of me.  I assure you I am very innocent.

So I am going to make my guess, and hope for the best.  I suppose if I'm wrong, the rest of the votes are going to be targeting me, and the criminals run free.

Anyways, good luck us!  My guess: NightOwl, Whip, Gift

CORRECT <3

YAY LESLIE  ;D

Offline theLeslie

Well, I can't take all the credit!  I was more leaning towards watch, but yay team work!

Online Blythe

Also, Madame, Ryven, and Remiel--y'all gave me a lot to work with, and with your posts, I figured out where I was going wrong.

(And to clarify for anyone with questions--I picked Summer because folks weren't quite groking the weapon, and summer = rodeos =whips, which I realize in hindsight wasn't very good logic on my part with Winter right there, so I took heed of Madame's comment about Winter when selecting a Clue to cover up. ^^

Good game, NightOwl and accomplice! That was tricky, and it was a good combo of weapon + evidence. I was panicking about how to give clues in the beginning. *nodnod*

Oh my gosh, awesome! Yay! Nicely done, Team!

Offline Remiel

Yeah, Whip/Gift would have been my guess if I could've had a second one.   But yeah, that Summer clue really threw me.   :-\

Congrats, Leslie

The Game is Not Over Yet!!

NightOwl, you've been caught, but if you can correctly take out the witness, your trial will likely acquit! You have one chance, who are you taking out?

I'll just go ahead and assume (more than likely incorrectly) theLeslie.

You said you'd keep me safe if I testified!  Man, I just can't trust the police. -.-
