City Watch Whodunnit

Postby captainmeme » Fri Mar 25, 2011 4:32 pm

Commander Vimes was patrolling Treacle Mine Road when Carrot ran up to him.
"Sir! Constable Meme's been murdered!"
Carrot was about to say more, but Vimes was already running towards the Watch house. Carrot caught up just as Vimes reached it.
"You're not going to like it, sir.' Carrot stated. Vimes went in nonetheless.
Meme lay in the centre of the locker room, a dagger in his back. There was a piece of paper stuck on the dagger. Vimes ripped it off.
"Oh, no..."
The paper had six words on it. It was hard to read them, because of the blood, but Vimes could make it out:

"Release Burnham or you will pay"

Vimes had arrested Lord Burnham three days earlier after he had found out that the Lord had put spies in the Watch. Technically, the Watch shouldn't interfere with the Upper Class, but Vimes had had enough. If they messed with his Watch, they would pay.
He had thought something would come up from it. He hadn't expected murder.
"Sir, it was in the Watch House. It must have been a Watchman."
"Damn. Send me all the watchmen who were in the Watch House at the time."
"Okay, sir." Carrot turned to leave,
"Oh, and get Angua too. We're going to need her nose. Make sure she's disguised; we don't want to have an easy target for whoever's done this."
"Right, sir."


The Suspects are:

Constable Pip
Constable Jan
Constable Meerkat
Constable Simstars
Constable Dotsie
Constable Archerinwood
Constable Sjoerd
Constable Willem
Constable Tino

(Sorry for the lack of ranks, but you can't be established watch members!)

There are TWO infiltrators.

The day phase will begin now.

I think I know why no-one's posting yet. I've looked back through the threads and it seems that everyone always suspects the first person who posts...

Maybe no-one's posting because they're all crying since they miss Constable Meme so much? :)

Nah... I just killed off Meme because no-one else's life is mine to give. (Though I did consider Poohcarrot... :twisted: )

Anyhow, are you going to vote?

:lol: See! This lot are awkward b*ggers... 8)

I'll do my usual and say it doesn't much matter who's accused at this stage, because we have no real clues and there are in addition more people than normal in the frame...

... so everything is speculation and we have a couple of days to 'test' for guilty faces and big gobs :lol: That's another thing Captain - we need a deadline really because sometimes people don't show up until the end thinking they'll be forgotten, when in fact it just makes 'em look guilty and has me shouting - get rid of 'em 'cos they're not contributing anything so who cares whether they're innocent or not 'cos we might get lucky :wink:

However - let me be first and get some kicks in - Pipster! :twisted: I'm not hiding I'm voting!

My first vote goes to Pip! :lol:

Thanks Jan. When do you think the deadline should be? It'll either be Sunday afternoon or Monday afternoon.

Weekends can sometimes be kind of quiet on here so I'd go for Monday evening so it concentrates people's minds and gives them time to read through when they're back at their desks :wink:
