Nice, all four have posted.
And ye gods, your character's action legitimately frightens and fascinates me at the same time Azriel!

Bloody hell do people just not read the rules or something?!

I mean all actions have been legitimate thus far, well done, but I even mentioned how if you don't know what the spoiler boxes are for you should go read the rules.
I added a rules section, with a map, to the original game description post. Everything you need is on page 15 and 16 of this thread.
Anyway, Petty is correct. The spoiler boxes are to simulate the fact that you are working alone throughout the day and to invoke a sense of mystery in the proceedings. You do not know what the other detectives are up to during the day, but any detectives staying at Mrs. Hindle's Inn will share what they have done throughout the day. (Basically this means that once a day ends and the detectives have returned home, you, the player, may then read through the spoiler boxes from the day.)

Well we do treat rules more as guidelines, or suggestions. Very Happy

And not sure spoilers will entirely work anyway as Mrs Figg cant resist them, like a moth to the flame Laughing

Resistance is futile with her sort! Rolling Eyes

I suppose I should have been a little more clear about the fact that I added a rules section. Except, oh yeah:

Forest Shepherd wrote:I added a rules section. I need to do just a little bit more work before we can start, but the most of that will be drawing up the map!
Razz

Anyway, at least we're now all on the same page, so to speak.

Waiting on Mrs. Figg I do believe, but no rush!

I like the direction you're heading in Ringdrotten, but to be clear to everyone else (and I hope I put this in the game description on pg. 15) Tilda Hindle, the proprietress of the local inn, was informed of your arrival in-town and prepared a small garret (or proper bedroom, depending on your class) for each of you as well as a meeting room for your meals (which she will provide) and for discussing the days research and events.

Edit: Also don't worry Azriel about the money. The XX/XXs refers to X pounds and X shillings. It's really quite a lot of money for the time (a pint of beer would only be (maybe) about 2 pence). Obviously the police commissioner was expecting some heavy expenses as he doled out at least a few months wages to each of you for your detective money.

Mrs. Figg- "I read all the spoilers"
Mad Mad
No!
No no no! My gosh, the nerve of some!

The game isn't half as good if we don't observe the rules for the spoilers. Read your own only! Once your character becomes aware of what the other detectives are doing I will let you know by changing "____________ Only!" to "_________ For all" or something. This will happen once every three rounds (the end of every day).

(Also Mrs. Figg as amusing as such an explosion would be (involving Petty's obvious proclivity for drunken antics) you can't just write the game events out, especially those involving other people. The whole idea is that the players submit an action or idea or whatever and I determine how it goes and let them know. Smile I do try to make things fun and interesting! I do!)

Yeah sorry Petty you have no context for this discussion. You're like Donny from The Big Lebowski. Razz

Anyway the point is that I wasn't considering putting in a secret tunnel from the Pub to Braxton Hall as it would be really, really weird for this setting. Like Doctor Who level-of-plot-convenience-weird. I'm going to steal that idea and put secret tunnels in somewhere now, but rather than me having to sort of brow-beat down your idea of the tunnel by (no matter what you get for the roll) telling you

For Mrs. Figg:
and therefore you are left standing around doing nothing for the afternoon (our current round); well rather than that, please submit a different action.
One that is a suggestion for what you want your character to do; not a description of what your character is doing.
It's like a horse-before-the-cart problem. You guys tell me what you want to do, I tell you how it goes.
Anyway sorry for stickler-ing the rules, but there it is.
Goodluck all! Update forthcoming, hopefully!
