The Safe House - Spoiler: the butler did it

Post by euan707 » Wed Mar 23, 2016 8:10 pm

Welcome to SONM's first murder mystery. Well, not quite yet, this is just the sign up thread, but it's a step in the right direction. So, how is this gonna work?

Absolutely no idea.

The time structure is similar to that of a mafia, with separate phases. However, unlike Mafia's 2 phases, MitSH has 4. Day, Teatime, Early Evening and Late Night. These phases are explained a little more in depth down below.

As for the people playing (that's you guys, hopefully), each will be assigned one of 21 characters. Your character name will be visible on the thread, however you will receive a role PM with more details, and your all important ability.

So, what are the rules?

Rule and Stuff


General Rules
When posting in the thread, Forum Rules apply. Also, please don't info dump or post your role PM. This would ruin the game and also bring up plot holes.

When communicating via PM, all messages must have myself included within them. This means I can keep track of the game and also organize everyone at any given phase.


Phase Specific Rules

Day Phase
During the day phase, players are free to chat with each other in the thread. This can be related to the game or otherwise. Due to the nature of the investigation, nobody can leave the house. This means that, while around other players, private chats are not possible and, as such, no PMs should be sent during this phase (unless you’re sending an action to me). This phase will last roughly 5 hours.

Tea Time
I mean, we’ve all gotta eat, right? Even murderers. So, in the midst of the investigation, the cooks are still busy preparing meals. This even brings the entire household together, so more general chat is allowed. Due to the public nature of dinner, and the fact that sneaking off is rude, no PMs are allowed during this phase either, unless sending an action to me. The detectives will now use this phase to question any suspects. All questions will be asked and answered publically. This phase will last roughly 12 hours.

Early Evening
As the sun sets, the household prepares to sleep. Players go to their room. Or they don’t. During this phase, players are free to visit each other. To do so, PM me with who you’d like to visit, and away you’ll go. This can be good for having private chats, or warning other players, or just general tactics. Just beware, there may be other players listening in to you conversations.
If during this phase, two or more players choose to visit a player, you will all go. However, if the targeted player chooses to do so, they can send any player away at any time.
Also, if you’ve chosen to visit a player who is on their own visit, you will be notified that their door is locked. Bit embarrassing...
For rules regarding private chats, look at the General rules section. Easy, right? This phase will last roughly 12 hours.

Late Night
Shhh! Everyone’s sleeping! Well, almost. During the early morning, most characters will be asleep, so no general chat. Private chats are limited now too, both players much agree to meet beforehand. Be very careful during this phase, as most actions take place now.
Also, depending on how well you sleep, you might hear actions taking place around you. For more info on sleep patterns, check out the additional rules section. This phase will last roughly 5 hours.


Additional Rules

Sleep Patterns - Sleep Patterns - Nobody sleeps perfectly, it just doesn’t happen. Therefore, during the late night, you may awaken. It’s just a chance, it’s all down to nature (and dice rolls). Depending on how well you sleep, you may hear action from outside of your room. The sleep patterns are as follows:

Perfectly – You’ve slept very well, and heard nothing throughout the night.

Well – You’ve had a good night’s sleep, but might have heard a few snippets.

Badly – You’ve had an on edge night, and might have heard action outside.

Awfully – You’ve had a turbulent night, and there’s a good chance you heard action outside.

Remember, in order to hear action outside your room, there must be action taking place outside your room. Just because you slept badly doesn’t mean you’ll definitely have heard anything.

All conversations taking place in a specific phase must end at the end of that phase. For example, a conversation taking place during Tea Time must be ended by the start of the Early Evening.

The timings of each phase are flexible, but will go something like this;
Day Time – 5 hours
Tea Time – 12 hours
Early Evening – 12 Hours
Late Evening – 3 Hours

This makes one day phase one and a bit days long. Of course, this might change at any point, so make sure you check how long the phase lasts for.

The layout of the house is as follows.

Floor 1

Floor 2
http://prntscr.com/afp9kl

Floor 3
http://prntscr.com/afp9zj
All that's left to do is to introduce you to our character roster. It goes as follows,
  1. Mr H.
  2. Mrs H.
  3. Alexander
  4. Colin
  5. Ross
  6. Maid
  7. Butler
  8. Cook 1
  9. Cook 2
  10. Cook 3
  11. Cook 4
  12. Aunt 1
  13. Uncle 1
  14. Aunt 2
  15. Uncle 2
  16. Grandmother 1
  17. Grandfather 1
  18. Grandfather 2
  19. Jamie
  20. Secret Character 1
  21. Secret Character 2
Also, each character has different win conditions, some of which are more difficult to achieve than others. Therefore, if you're looking for a challenge, or maybe want to take it easy, let me know in your sign up post and I'll act accordingly. After the sign ups are over, we'll use this thread to do a shorter warm up game, just to let everyone (including me) see how the game plays out. For this, you'll receive a limited role PM. After that, we'll migrate over to a new thread and start the game for real, and you'll get your full PM, with no restrictions.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask. Believe me, it's as complicated as it sounds. Hopefully it'll become clearer as we go along.

21 spaces, let's go!

This seems to have a decent amount of thought behind it, so in
