HMs, Your task this week is to create a "Murder Mystery", that will have to be written, and then acted out through the use of 20 threads at the end of the week. Firstly, as a group, you will have to work out the basic plot, character traits and relationships with other characters, red herrings, and of course, who is the guilty party. (NOTE: "Secret" info towards the mystery plot should be discussed only via PM, so the public won't know the details.) Once you've agreed with what's happening, each housemate will be required to post a thread describing their "character", and their history and relationship with the other "characters" (housemates) in the mystery, etc etc. Basically, it's unvieling the character. You should also add background information that can be used in the plot as clues, or anything you want. Finally, once you're ready, you'll get to "act" out your story, in character, through the use of threads, detailing the story. You may use up to 20 threads for whatever purpose you desire. They may represent a particular room in the mansion (or whatever you choose), or important plot narrative, or a historical fact, or, I dunno... you're creative. Come up with something cool. Making sure, of course, that within the 20 threads you leave room for the "wrapping up" thread, leaving the obvious "Whodunnit?" question. Your job is to make sure you've provided enough facts in the threads to actually be able to work out who did it, but conceal it in such a way that more of the Community will get it wrong than they will right. The Community, you see, will be given the chance to post who they think is the guilty housemate, once you've finished with the "show". In order to win the task, the majority of the Community has to get the "Whodunnit?" question wrong. How much of the 1990 points you have are you willing to wager on whether you can outsmart Community? ;-) -BB PS: Any questions concerning the task, please post in this thread.
