A monastery mystery
« on: 19 Nov 2017, 08:05 »
A monastery mystery (who done it?)... Untitled at present and in production......

The strange disappearance of Brother Stephen and the shredding of a letter brings Brother Barrinion to the monastery.

"Good day, Abbot."

"Welcome, Brother Barrinion."

"I received your Raven this morning."
"You have some concerns about Brother Stephen?"

"Yes. Brother Stephen has not been seen since late last night."
"He never showed up for breakfast this morning and no one has seen him."
"He had came to me last night at around 10:30pm about something or other."
"He handed me a letter."
"He seemed very incoherent."
"Unfortunately I was very busy writing important letters."
"I went to put his letter on my desk when it drifted into the shredding machine."
"I have not been able to piece the letter together to read it."
"I have deep concerns for Brother Stephen which is why I called on you for your expertise."
"Your deductive skills for solving cases are legendary."

"You think there could be a connection between Brother Stephen going missing and the letter?"

"It's possible."
"Here are the shredded pieces of paper."
"See if you can make any sense of them."

Can YOU unfrock the chief perpetrator?

Another case for Brother Barrinion: monk sleuth extraordinaire...

Looks great!
I can also say that "The Name Of The Rose" was the first thing that came in mind - and it's a good thing indeed.

Well, I'm not over-happy with the background.. and it is supposed to be more contempory (1950's) so i'v changed it to plaster texture.. It looks better in my (roll)

Who knows who will turn up within the game (laugh)

'The name of the Rose' is a good film. Also the TV series Cadfael...

I want to add plenty of different type puzzle situations into this game...

We already have one Drag n drop puzzle to arrange shredded letter pieces...

As a sleuth, Brother Barrinion is very deductive and on closer inspection he can see things that others may miss...

This is a game where you will need all your senses if you are to solve the case for it is YOU that must unmask the perpetrator... But have you defrocked the right person?

"HEY, ABBOTT!!!"

"I HATE that guy!"

(Kudos to anyone who knows which movie I quoted!)

Anyway, this'll be an interesting game too.
