Travis asked for games we could play. My first thought was "What are we, six?" and my second was a list of terrible game ideas, including "Pin-the-tail-on-David", "Find the Poisoned Sandwich", and "Duck, Duck, Velociraptor*".
But then I remembered-- murder mystery games. They're awesome! We get to wear costumes if we want, we get to pretend to kill each other, and there's a lot of general ridiculousness.
But the kits available online are kind of... terrible. The characters are boring (with awful pun-names that even I couldn't stomach), the plots contrived, and the settings kind of ridiculous. This is a group of writers. They expect better.
So I decided to write my own. :D
The Setting: A new nightclub in L.A., the latest trendy hotspot for the young Hollywood elite.
The Characters: I am using everyone's real names, as trying to remember people's fake names is always the most annoying part of this for me.
This is fun. I will be making up a bit more details about the characters, but those will have to remain private. If we decide to use this game, I'll post the details after it's over. If not, I'll put them up in a day or two.
*I don't know how this game is played, but I am pretty sure it involves Travis eating people's faces.
