POOH'S WHOWAZZIT GAME - STARTING NOW!

Postby poohcarrot » Fri Apr 16, 2010 2:08 pm

INTRO

Eight Forum members meet at the hotel Metropole in Birmingham on August 26, 2010, the day before the Discworld Convention starts. Sitting in the penthouse bar offering panoramic views of Birmingham (Wow! :roll: ), they are chatting, laughing and quaffing copiously.

Jan is drinking triple G & Ts.
Dotsie is drinking tequila slammers.
Sjoerd is drinking Heineken.
Willem is drinking Grolsch.
Crys is drinking pints of absinthe.
DJ is drinking dry sherry.
Bikkit is drinking shandies.
Poohcarrot is drinking bitter.

Suddenly, Pooh grabs his throat, lets out a muted cry, then slumps backward to lie twitching on the floor with green froth spewing out of his mouth. His body then becomes very still.

"Let me through!" shouts Dotsie, "I'm a scientist....No pulse! He's dead! Arsenic poisoning!"

For several seconds everybody is stunned and nobody speaks. Then in unison everybody shouts, "Yippee! Happy, happy!"

But who killed poor Pooh? Who could he possibly have wound up enough to commit murder? Well, obviously, everyone, but who had the bottle to carry out such a dirty deed? Could there be a serial killer on the loose at the Discworld Convention? Is this the end of the beginning, or the beginning of the end? Is this possibly the crappiest storyline to date?

Only time will tell.

Let the voting commence to start. Whoever is voted off (MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE VOTING PROCEDURE!) will be forcibly man-handled by the remaining Forum members and thrown to their death off the top of the hotel Metropole. The Forum takes care of its own in-house business!

The afternoon phase will end at exactly 11:00pm Tuesday 20, UK time.

My ghost will try to keep track of the voting and objectively point out all the possibilities.

*checks if Sjoerd's around* :lol:

Ah good - let's ring some changes and someone else can go first for once... and let's say it was Crys wot done it ( just 'cos absinthe's green :P )

A clear case of suicide brought on by guilt. :lol:

OK - ignore me - I couldn't resist it. :P

I reckon it was Bikkit wot done it, she was clearly on the shandies to keep her hand steady so she could slip the arsenic into Pooh's glass :)

I think Dotsie did it. She found out suspiciously fast that it was arsenic :wink:

Hmm, good point Sjoerd, and surely arsenic doesn't kill that quickly? Maybe she's trying to distract us from the bite of the rare south american spider she released? :lol:

Yeah, I though that arsenic had to build up or something

:roll: :roll: :roll:

The facts that bikkit was drinking shandy, Dotsie (being the most scientific member out of you rabble) identified the "quick-working" arsenic, and Crys drinking a green drink are all completely irrelevent. It was artistic licence.

Now, there may or may not be a clue in the intro.I'm not going to tell you.

bikkit, Dotsie and Crys may or may not be killers. They also may or may not be "reflectors".

A reflector = an innocent player who has the power to reflect a killers attack back on to the killer, thus killing the killer. This power can only be used once.

It's DJ since She's drinking sherry. Probably straight from the bottle, so 'who had the bottle to carry out such a dirty deed?' Dj had!

Someone killed Pooh? I can't believe a TPforumer could do such a thing.. are we sure he didn't do it himself as a last trick, so now we turn on each other?
No, it can't be.
I think Willem might have joined this group for a specific reason...to have a chance to kill Pooh

I think Jan is lying to us and that she isn't the killer. But since I'm always wrong I'm voting for her! :twisted:
I vote for Jan :twisted:
