Masked Ball

April 20, 2013

Victoria, BC

Autocrat: Anastasia Daysshe device3258OP

Welcome to the Spring Medieval Ball

Come Dance, Play, and see if you can solve the murder that occurs this evening at the Manor of Fernwood. ( Eastern Star hall )

This is an SCA event, and therefore, medieval costumes will be needed. Door charge will be 10 dollars as usual.

But wait, a murder you say. Yes, someone at the ball will be murdered, and it will be up to you, to determine who.

Lord Taylor has invited everyone to his manor, to join him in celebrating the wedding of his son Bartholomew, to the Lady Diana of Dunnsbury. So please, come out to witness this grand event, and celebrate with them this glorious day.

I need people. 20 to be exact, that can commit to a part !

Persons needed to play parts ! If you see one you want. that is not marked as taken, Let me know, and I can send you info. Once you decide on a character, that's the one you get, so choose carefully, as the initial handout has important info that cannot be shared.

Also, remember, this is a murder mystery party. You all have secrets, and parts to play in the murder that will occur that evening.

At the Start of the ball, I would like all people with parts to be there between 6:15- 630. I will give you a sheet with questions you are to ask others, as you arrive at the ball as well as coins, that you may use for bribery. Use them wisely. I will also explain a few changes I will need to make to make this work at the ball.

At 8pm, there will be a murder, in a dark corner, somewhere in the hall, and you will be handed another set of questions, in order to attempt to determine who the murderer is. There will be a ballot box, where you can guess your answer. ( one per person, and all attending the ball are allowed to guess )

At 900, the box will be gone through, and those who guessed will get a certificate.

Awards as follows
Smoking Gun award - Guessed Murderer
' Best costume, '
' Money Bags ' - Most coins at the end of the night
' Best Theatrics '
