Espionage Party

Secrets and spies and everyone lies.

Scenarios

Goats

Goats 'n' Scapes


GoatCam is a charitable organization which puts cameras on goats. Its donors are philanthropists and animal lovers who pay a lot of money to see what those goats are up to. They gather tonight on the Infinite Jest, a luxury cruise liner somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. It is 2015, the Year of the Goat (or was it the Sheep?), and more funds must be raised for those poor animals. Rare curiosities and exotics will be auctioned to the highest bidder. The ruthless social elite and corrupt power brokers will wheel and deal. The glamorous will betray the notorious. And maybe there will be one or two people who just like goats.

Witch



The Witch of Thrush Hollow

Over two hundred years ago, the town of Thrush Hollow was home to Tabitha Primrose, now known as a powerful witch. Legend has it that she haunts the town's residents to this day, placated only by the annual lock-in tradition performed at her former home. This year is turning out to be different. Her calling card, a bloody feather, has been found all over town. Hemlock has sprouted fully grown at Primrose's memorial overnight. A corpse turned up last week cradled in the arms of her statue, and gravestones have appeared in the cemetery, suggesting her next victims. Tonight is the lock-in, and a group of out-of-towners has appeared, claiming they want to get to the bottom of this mystery. What are their true intentions? Is the witch really back for vengeance, or is something else behind these omens? The only way to find out is to proceed with the ritual.

Hotel



The Forget-Me-Not Hotel

In 1938, the Forget-Me-Not Hotel, a grand institution with a fabled history, plays host to a mysterious party. You've received an invitation from an unknown host. But who sent it and for what purpose? As you step into the grand ballroom, a swing band in one corner and table of hors d'oeuvres in the other, you inspect the other guests. You can see some are associated with the hotel itself. Others look to be from the nearby Fort Messina, rumored to be a center of top-secret research. To your surprise, you hear a familiar voice laughing from the back of the room. Did they all receive invitations like yours? Could you be looking at your anonymous host right now? You help yourself to a glass of champagne. Time to find out what this is all about.
