Well, its time to let you people in on a few things.

Murder, Inc. is a small group of us who are working on running a crime mystery for you to solve. Its that simple :) At this point, I will tell you that Minethere and I are members, but there are others. We are not going to disclose who they are so that we can do what we need to do without spoiling the event.

We are currently working on our first event, doing the building, setting up the clues, NPCs, locations, lead up, everything. We are trying to have things ready to go in 3 or 4 weeks.

Part of this will include postings in the General Discussions forum. We do have Ilan's okay to do this. The reason for using the GD forum is because not all mystery lovers are role players, and we don't want people to not participate if they believe this is pure role play. To that end, this thread will be used to talk about Murder, Inc itself and the GD forum will be used as a "news outlet". That is, we will be posting things that are part of the mystery. They might include background about the NPC characters, clues, location info, history, the back story, if you will.

Minethere is our public relations person. She will be responding to things you post and she will be posting all future threads. This allows us to do the building while keeping communications organized and clear.

We hope that you will follow along and will take part once things are ready.

Let us start by thanking everyone who has been following our thread in General Discussions. Your continuing interest has kept us going with this. And we have been having a lot of fun doing, it. And now its time to tell you a bit more of what we are doing.

We are planning a Murder.

Okay, a Murder Mystery, actually. One for you to solve. We have been doing a ton of building, scripting, animating and testing to get things done right and we are now at the point of setting a date.

We will begin the murder mystery event on October 14th, 2013, at 12:00 am (midnight) Kitely time.

At that time, "registrations" will open. Those details are still in the works, but you will get plenty of time in advance to know where to go and what to do.

Participation is free, including the time you spend in the worlds that are taking part.

The murder mystery event will run for 72 hours. That is, it will close on October 18th, 2013 at 12:00PM (Noon) Kitely time.

That's right, this is not a permanent role play event. Its more of a contest. Each person who successfully solves the mystery will receive this award:

However, the first person to successfully solve the mystery will receive this award:

Now, if you look closely, you will see that there's no 'engraving' or other text on those. That's because each award will be personalized. Not only that, but there will be an awards presentation with live entertainment. We have convinced Torben Asp to perform at our presentation. He is well known for his music and particle show.

The awards presentation will be on October 19th, 2013 beginning at 11:00 AM Kitely time. Torben will perform at noon - 1 pm.

Again, thank you for your continuing interest in this project. We look forward to seeing all of you at the awards presentation.

eta: changed times in this post to reflect the final changes...nothing substantial to note but closing time.

Folks, we have run into a problem with our setup. I wish I could tell you more than that, but it would give things away.

This means that launching our murder mystery will be delayed by 12 hours. That is, instead of starting at Noon tomorrow (Monday) we'll be launching at Midnight tomorrow. To make this up, we will run the event until Friday Noon instead of Thursday. The awards ceremony and Torben Asp's performance will go ahead as scheduled.

We apologize for this and hope that you will bear with us as we work to fix the problem.

Would you like to write an invited post about the murder mystery event and future events planned? Here is an article about Invited articles:

Pictures would be good. Important to bring out: Not just role play but immersive theater.

~ Murder Mystery Launched ~

This is it, folks. Thank you for your patience. Its time to solve the first murder mystery in the OpenSim Metaverse. well, as far as we know its the first. Its definitely a first for Kitely.

And here's what you need to do to get started.

Its pretty simple, really. You go to the Falling Sky Detective Agency at Computer Plaza http://www.kitely.com/virtual-world/Dun ... uter-Plaza between Midnight, Monday October 14th and Noon Friday October 18th, Kitely time. At that time, "registration" will close, so don't leave it too late, as you will need sufficient time to conduct your investigations in time to receive an award for a successful solution.

Once you are at Falling Sky, say "Sliser Murder" (no quotes) to trigger things. After that, you will go through a very short tutorial to show you how things work before being given a Badge, a copy of the case file and other necessary gear.

There's some new scripting and related tech involved, so it is truly important that you go through the tutorial/introduction mission. Its very important that you read the case file so that you gain some background and know what it takes to succeed.

And don't forget, there will be an awards presentation on Saturday, the 19th, from 11:00AM to 1:00PM, with Torben Asp performing at 12Noon. Each of you that succeeds will receive a personalized trophy for you to put on display.

[side note for Thinkerer: You can post any of this to your blog if you wish. I cannot add additional things to do for myself.]

Murder, Inc. is sponsoring a free and fun Mystery that is going on NOW.

It is totally within Kitely and utilizes NPCs in interesting ways and as well there will be awards given upon conclusion. And a performance by Torben Asp, both on the 19th.

Mostly, we wish to give you all something fun to do.

So come on in and start @ http://www.kitely.com/virtual-world/Dun ... uter-Plaza go to 195 154 37 to see the NPC Agent, type Sliser Murder in local chat to receive your badge and a short notecard telling you what to do next.

You can also click on him for information.

This ends Noon Friday October 18th, Kitely time.
