    The wenig Mystery

    Discussion in 'Archive' started by Raven, Jun 15, 2008.

    The Game was Created By Bick​




    The small town of Wenig, Missouri, is located in the boonies of Missouri. Surrounded on three of its four sides by a large wooded area. On the far South side there is a lightly wooded field, that leads to the only water source of the Town, the Wenig creek. Though, in there is also the water tower. The creek is about 4 feet wide. Is known for flooding. There is only one road that leads from the town, it takes you directly from the Sheriff’s office, through out of town. The street leads to the closest town of Montgomery about 150 miles from Wenig.

    The town itself is rather small, as said before. There’s no more then 80 citizens in the city, with a small growth rate of one to two people per a few years. There is one diner, a sheriff’s office, a fire department(also home to the fire chief), a gas station that is connected with the mechanic shop, a dairy, a supply store, a schoolhouse, a church and the homes of the citizens. The dairy takes up a good portion of the towns land, but also contributes to most of the economic stability.

    The people of Wenig know everyone. Friends or even enemies since birth. No one moves away from Wenig, you are born there and you die there. A normally peaceful place to live.

    That’s about to change for the homely people of Wenig with the new mystery that will soon arrive. It’s your job to solve it with the clues the Gamemaster gives you.

    -----------------------​

    Point of the Game: With the clues given to you, and the clues played out by the other players you are to solve the mystery while also answering a few questions on the way. There are also the few missions that some characters will be given that can end in clues or new situations.

    Time: Takes place in the early 1980’s. The time is Summer. School is out folks, and the Summer is hot, and boiling. The creek is looking good right about now isn’t it?

    Characters: Some characters will be let in on the plot. They will be part of the plot, might get to know some of the plot but not all. They will help lay the plot out, while not telling the others what I tell them. Don’t want to ruin the fun of a Mystery.

    When making your characters, remember this is a small town. I wouldn’t expect any incredibly rich people or rock’n’roll stars. Try and be realistic and have fun.

    Clues: Once the mystery is put out all members will be given clues that they must play out. If a clue from another member is played out, try not to let your own clue out too close to theirs. This will help lessen the confusion. You are not to tell others your clues, nor the clues you find out. They are yours alone to find/figure out. Most of them should be obvious, while others may not, it’ll just take some thought.

    To play out a clue, you’ll follow the directions of that clue. (Some might be really simple, and won’t take too much trouble.)

    Solving the Mystery: Once you think you can answer all questions(You will notice them in bold at the end of my posts in bold.) and know who did what, why, and how then you may PM the me.

    If you get it right, then I will tell you so, and you will be able to make the post. When you have solved the Mystery, you’re to go to the Sheriff and tell him what you’ve found out. Be as creative as you want.

    If you are wrong, there are no repercussions, but I will not tell you what you got wrong so you have a chance to try again.

    Buildings:

    Sheriff’s office;; Three general sections. Once you walk in the door, you reach the first section. Desks for the Sheriff, Deputy and a small desk for the Secretary. One cemented room to the side where there are two jail cells. Four beds. Other room is for evidence and files, connected to the front room.

    It’s located at the end of the main street, for easy access.

    Diner;; Alcohol only served at night and only at the bar portion of it. Bar surrounds the area where the cooks works. Around it are booths and tables. About 5-6 tables. Open 5am to 10pm.

    Fire Department;; Actually a small home. One floor. Two car garage, where ladders and tools needed for the job are kept. Pressurized water tank located on the back of Earl’s truck, in case of fire with hoses attacked. Though there hasn’t been a fire for over a decade.

    Gas station and Mechanic Shop;; Connected to one another. One gas nozzle. Unleaded gas only in front of Mechanic shop. All cash is dealt with in there. Room for four cars, though one side is where all tools are kept.

    The Dairy;; Two large buildings, and an outdoor field for the cows. One building is for the housed cows to live, with the bulls separated from the hundreds of heifers. The second building for processing of the milk. Large portion of land. Located near the far South side, just a mile from the creek.

    Supply Store;; Located just across the way of the owner’s home. Two rooms. The main room where the counter and various items are kept refrigerated, and shelved for viewing. Room in back where other items and stock are kept in the back. Shop owners go out of town every other week to get supplies ordered by the towns people, as well as restocking for everyday items. A day long trip.

    Schoolhouse;; Small building the size of a small home. Three classrooms. First for grade 1 through 6. Second room for Grade 7 through 9. Third room for grade 9 through 12. No indoor plumbing or cooling. Outhouse in the back. One teacher, as there aren’t many children.

    The Church;; Not sure of which religion just yet, but I’d think Protestant or Catholic. If we get a leader of the church, as one of the characters, we will decide from there. Church is a big part of small time county life ;) Small building, like a normal church. Etc. This you can imagine yourself.

    Jobs:

    Deputy (one)
    Waitress
    Diner Owner(one)((Unless owned with spouse))
    Farmer
    Dairy Worker
    Gas Station Tender(one)
    Sheriff’s Secretary(one)
    Town Drunk
    Student
    School Teacher(one)
    Pastor/Priest/Reverend(Not sure you make money this way….)(one)
    Supply Shop Owner(if you want to choose this one, PM me.)(one)((Unless owned with spouse))
    Out of Town Detective(Wouldn’t that be interesting?) (one)

    Those are just a few. Use your imagination. You can make moonshine in your cellar for all I care :p You can even be unemployed and live with your family.

    I may have to ask you to change jobs if it collides with the plot, but more then likely that won’t happen, so don’t worry about that.

    The Fireman/Sheriff/Mechanic are non-playable characters. ((More non-playable characters might popup.))

    The plot will be coming out a week after I post this. I’d like it if you got a first post done for your character and missions might be given before the actual plot is let out.

    Rules:

    I hope you know the normal RPG rules, I won’t be posting those. Just general rules for Wenig.

    1: No posts under three lines.

    Ex: “How are you doing this fine morning, Sheriff?” she asked.

    Correct way: Her eye caught a glimpse of the sheriff’s badge as the light shone off it. She ran across the street, waving at him. He tilted his hat with a friendly hello.

    She stopped short of the sidewalk.

    “How are you doing this fine morning, Sheriff?”

    It could also help if you talked dialogue through with the other character on your profile messages or through PM.

    2: Don’t let out clues on top of one another.

    3: You must absolutely not talk about your clues or your theory on the solving of the Mystery.

    4: Duel characters are only allowed if separate posts are made for them both. Meaning from two points of view. Otherwise they are considered sub-characters, and will be needed to put in a sub-character profile.

    You are allowed family, children, friends and pets. They must just be characters your character will interact with, without you playing them. Like non-playable characters.

    If you have any questions, PM me.

    I will be working with Rumo AKA Rumpole on this. He will be a part of it.

    Post one Surreal Finley

    Surreal woke to the sound of her alarm clock. It’s screech heard from the lounge room. The television was blaring and she rubbed her eyes before looking at the screen. She’d fallen asleep on the lounge after one to many late nights. On the coffee table a pizza box held stiff crusts and an half eaten piece of pizza that looked a little less then enticing. She lifted herself from the couch. As she did she could hear her bright pink PVC coat pulling away from parts of the coat it had scrunched up to. She took the flight of stairs two the second floor and opened the bathroom door. She often kept it closed at night time to keep the cold out. Behind the door a hanger with her deputies uniform on it swung about.

    A quick shower and she was dressed and at the mirror. On the bench that held the bathroom sink were lipsticks of just about every colour imaginable. Screaming red oranges a black lipstick and even a blue. She was rather found of her collection that had started when she was eighteen. In front of them were to metal studded leather cuffs she put them on and snapped the poppers closed before looking at herself in the mirror. It wasn’t much of the culture she held so dear, but it was enough for her. So people knew who she was. She was grateful the police department allowed her a little of her punk accessories. The bosses exact statement “as long as she still looked respectful.” She would have liked a crew cut or a blue Mohawk. However since she was accepted for what she was, then she could respect the people who treated her like she was a human being.

    She took the keys to her Plymouth Volare and headed down the stairs taking them two at a time.

He has a regal looking demeanor and hard features that give people the impression that he is constantly angry at something.

After graduation, Lu decided to walk home, much to the disappointment of his parents. That night, as they drove home, Lu's family was involved in a terrible car accident that took all their lives. Lu would have died too had he not walked home, a fact that he has trouble living with sometimes. Lu went on the become a very successful author and poet.

    Brief History: Pilot was born to his mother, Cupcake, and his father who was a roaming mutt. Shorty after his birth, he was bought by Lu and given the name Pilot. He seems to have absorbed some of his master's personality.

    Rocko slowly opened his eyes and was welcomed with the vision of a blank sheet of paper with only his name on the top. He sighed, and thrust it away from his as he rose from his desk. He had fallen asleep trying to get ideas from the boringness of the town. His back cracked as he stood up from his desk chair. He walked from his door, he could hear the sound of his mother humming.

    He walked down the steps and was greeted with a warm smile from his mother, as she worked in the kitchen.

    “Morning Rocky.” She cooed, turning back to the stove.

    “Morning mom.” He said with a tired voice.

    He went to the living room, and sat on the edge of the couch as his father flipped through the channels. His father barely looked at him as he moved so he could see the television better.

    “What do you want Rocky?” he asked, his voice trailing off as the television captivated his attention.

    He looked at his father, “Nothing.” He snapped, going back to the kitchen. His mother looked at him with her aged, yet loving eyes.

    “Don’t look so weepy.” She said, lifting his chin, “It’s a beautiful day.” She winked, and dumped the greasy bacon onto the plate.

    “Why don’t you invite someone over for breakfast?” she asked. His face changed, and he let out a smile as he grabbed for the telephone. He knew exactly who he was going to invite.

    Surreal stopped at the bottom of the stairs as the phone rang, she glared at it, then walked over and scooped up the receiver.

    “Finley can I help you?” she asked. Her voice held it’s usual cool.

    "Hey Surreal, it's Rocky." he paused, muffling the sound of his voice as she heard him yell something, "You hungry?"

    She managed a weak smile Rocky was about the only person in town she managed to get along with as a friend. It was a childhood thing "Sure Rocky I'll be over soon."

    She said her goodbyes and hurried out the door to her car. It started with a low rumble as she turned the keys in the ignition and drove the short distance to Rocky’s house. He was waiting for her at the front door. She hurried up to the porch and gave another one of her weak smiles.

    “Hi Rocky, how’s stuff?”

    Rocky looked over at the living room with piercing eyes.

    “Same s***, different day.” He muttered.

    She nodded in agreement "Story of my life.”

    He opened the door, giving her a wink as she walked in, “I don’t think they’d even consider using our stories for toilet tissue.”

    She laughed and said, "You bet Rocky, a shame though. We've got a fair few to tell."

    He laughed as he remembered their childhood. They had been crazy kids, he wouldn’t change that for the world. They both took a seat at the dining table, as his mother set plates in front of them.

    “You remember that time at the creek, with the dare?” he said with grin.

    "Please like I could forget Billy Johnson got so mad he beat me later on when he found out I took his pants and put a fish hook in them. I'd just about do anything you said back then” She gave a soft laugh.

    He laughed, and added, “That hook tore his pants straight off. Left him with nothing put those stupid superman underwear.” He paused, to snuff down the piece of bacon, “Good times.”

    The shallow pool of cow dung's stink swarmed over her head. Shaniz gave her hat a jerk and threw it over the pole and then grabbed the horse on the other side of the dung. She felt useless cleaning up the stables every Thursday. It was disgusting. Simply disgusting.

    "Yo Shan!"

    A young boy's squeaky voice was heard from behind. Ignoring it as much as possible, Shaniz jumped on the bareback of the horse and took off. The horses neighed energetically as the air filled with the essence of moss and mud.

    Shaniz made her way to the town diner. She was a little later than usual, but the diner owner was out for the day so it didn't matter. She parked the horse in the back and then ran into the diner, making a desperate look on her face to convince the cook that she was on time.The cook barely looked at her, and so Shaniz happily took the front desk and waited.

    "Morning Pop," said Harry as he slid a plate full of scrambled eggs onto the night stand. "Looks like it's going to be a great day." The old man nodded and mumbled as he began to cover the eggs in ketchup. Harry put a hand on his father's shoulder. "Now make sure you eat everything, you have to keep up your strength." Harry looked at his watch. "Nearly nine, time to open for business, I'll be up to check on you later today."

    As Harry switched the sign in his auto shop to open and pushed up the garage door he smiled. "Yup, today is going to be a great day."

    Aly woke up to the sound of a blaring alarm clock. She stumbled into the bathroom and took a quick shower, then pulled on her jeans with only one hole in the right knee, and a clean, short sleeved button-down shirt - dressing nicely for work. She went into the kitchen, opened the cupboard, and reached for the cereal, but there was a note on the side of the generic box.
    Allison,
    I'm sorry, we're out of milk. But don't worry, there's plenty here at work - I'll bring some home. There's some leftover spaghetti in the fridge. Love,
    Dad.

    Aly rolled her eyes. Dad shouldn't try to make jokes, she thought. She slipped on her tennis shoes and locked the door before getting on her rusty bike and heading to work.

    Sheriff Post

    David looked in the mirror, and smiled at himself. His nose slightly scrunched itself, bringing the illusion of his age deeper. He quickly grabbed his comb, wetting it in the sink. He gently combed his hair, bringing his messy locks of hair into order. He turned away, grabbing his Sheriff’s shirt from the hanger on the door. He slid it on, buttoning it up. He walked out the bathroom door, and went for the closet. He took his handgun from it’s box, and put it in it’s holster.

    He felt a hand on his shoulder, and he turned around with a smile. His wife, Leanne, gave him a kiss on the cheek and embraced him for a hug.

    “Morning love.” She said with a wink, as she pulled out of the hug. She handed him his badge, and he quickly attached it to his shirt.

    “Morning Babe.” He said, patting her hand.

    “Off late, huh?”

    “Overslept.” He said with a smile as he headed for the door. He looked at the clock, only 15 minutes, but he had to open shop. She ran after him, placing two foil covered pump objects in his hand.

    “Breakfast for you and Allison.” She said, “Share with your deputy too!”

    He smiled, and kissed her on the cheek, “See you around five.”

    “Dinner will be ready for you when you get home.” He walked out the door and headed for work.

    “Earl?”

    “Yes Laura,” said her husband.

    “Earl?!”

    “Yes Laura,” He said a little louder.

    “EARL?!”

    Earl walked into the living room. “Yes darling, what can I do ya for?”

    “Don’t forget your lunch today. It’s your favorite, meatloaf.”

    “I already packed it.”

    “Good. Now be careful. There are plenty of your guys just dying to prove themselves. Don’t hog all the fire fighting,” she said with a smile.

    “I won’t dear,” said Earl as he kissed his wife.

    Laura looked out the window and watched him leave. She began her rosary and prayed for his safety just like she’d done everyday since they got married. “One day, I’m going to have to get Earl down to the doctor,” she said to herself. “I think he’s loosing his hearing.”

    Aly arrived at the sheriff's office about a minute and a half before he did, and she was actually relieved because she was late too, and now he wouldn't know, but she still gave him a hard time about it.
    "You're late," she said.
    "Don't get smart with me, young lady," he said, taking his keys out and unlocking the door.
