Who Killed Sapphire?

edited November 1 in Playground
So, this is going to be a part of the canon of Dashnet City. I will be getting back to the main RP. The Depths, maybe I'll come back to it, maybe I'll just say how it ends and go from there. Broken will be entirely scrapped, as it's been so long that I've forgotten what I had planned for it, plus I don't think I planned for much plot relevance anyway. But this is an important part of Dashnet City canon, that I will be getting into now.

You're invited to a poker night at Sapphire's mansion. During this poker night, you . . . well, you get hammered, everyone gets absolutely hammered, people get violent with each other, and you get knocked out. You wake up and a lot of shit's happened since. You soon come across the corpse of Sapphire, lying on the ground. And things only get crazier from there.

We're going to have limited spots, with 1 character per role.

I've done a die roll behind the scenes to determine who the murderer is. All roles were included except the Detective and the Victim, but including other NPC roles.

Characters who are not taken up by the time it's time to start the RP will be taken up by NPCs.

Characters already present and their roles:

Sapphire - The Victim

Recently deceased. Everyone had a falling-out a while back, but he decided it was high time to get the band back together again. Turns out it wasn't such a great idea, because he kind of got murdered by someone in this house. (Ability: None.)

Damien Morse - The Ex-Mayor

Ex-mayor of Dashnet City. Everyone knows him. He's a great guy, and a bit of a push-over, if I'm being entirely honest. Absolutely distraught over Sapphire's murder - he's the only one who's kept in touch with him since the falling-out, though they still haven't been on the best of terms. Knew Mark since they were kids. (Ability: Immune to the Lawyer's "lie detector" ability.)

Wilfred Solus - The Colonel

Used to be a member of the DCAF(Dashnet City Armed Forces). A bit out of touch with the situation, it seems. He claims to care, but he isn't affected at all by Sapphire's murder. Always has a gun on him, with a bit of a trigger finger. Seemingly trying not to focus on the murder mystery at all, instead preferring to just joke around and enjoy being at the mansion. Also, hated Sapphire after the falling-out. He has some secrets about him . . . especially since he seems to keep appearing out of nowhere. (Ability: Can teleport, change outfits or obtain objects automatically when not in direct line-of-sight of anyone.) He carries a revolver around, too.

Redwill Holmes - The Detective (Brainstorm)

One of those who were less than happy with Sapphire after the falling-out. Despite that, they do care and they're trying to figure out what happened. All of their previous partners are dead - each death more tragic than the last, and some of them being very ironic, which somehow makes them more tragic. Takes on the Lawyer as their new partner. Very skilled at what they do. (Will be PMed if there's a clue in the room they're in.) This role carries a handgun.

Brainstorm's notes: Not gonna say much about myself now, detectives are better mysterious than open-book, but I like asking questions or otherwise being quiet, I prefer wearing black and grey, and rubbing my chin, and I’d usually fall into my thoughts when I got stuff to think up, usually unnoticing the world around me
I’m also of medium height, pretty thin, dark brown hair, same eye color, too.

Dask Winterspoon - The Chef (iceklaus)

Sapphire's chef, was not involved in the falling-out. Can act downright scary at times, but is just trying to do their job without interference. Their Little Buddy (a ceramic chef statue that, coincidentally, looks like them) is a camera, which allows them to know if someone sabotaged the food or something(nobody did). (Ability: Will be PMed anything suspicious that happened in the kitchen from the time of the poker night starting to now when near their Little Buddy.)

Iceklaus' notes: Always holding a sharp and shiny cleaver named Sally, I always treat cooking as the most serious thing, a nutritious and safe meal is always the priority.

Rob Frake - The Technician (Lava_Entity)

Another employee of Sapphire's. They were affected by the falling-out, but mostly because their boss got frustrated and ended up shouting at them fairly often(the Butler doesn't get this treatment because they were his friend, and remained loyal to him during the falling-out; the Chef didn't just because the guy scares him, not gonna lie.) They understand technological stuff, obviously. Was only working here because there's no other job openings. They're good at what they do. (Ability: Can repair things much easier.)

And, character roles available + basic descriptions:

The Butler - Sapphire's butler, and also a friend of his. Was not involved in the falling-out at all. Out-and-out neat freak. May or may not be a drug dealer. (Up to whoever plays them whether they are or not. It has little affect on the actual plot.) Knows the entire layout of the building - there's not a secret about the house they're not privy to. (Ability: Will be PMed about hidden areas and the like nearby them.)

The Lawyer - Good friends with Damien since college. Also trying to figure out what actually happened. Only just met the Detective today, and almost immediately took a liking to them. Wasn't hit too hard by the falling-out. They know how to get information out of people. (Will be PMed if another person is lying to them about something.)

---

To join, just state a name and the role you play. You cannot pick a role already taken by a main NPC or another player. You cannot join as the same character as Dashnet City. You also cannot have the two characters sharing a name between the different RPs, as the canon is shared. (Looking at you, Brainstorm. Gotta come up with a creative name here.)

HOWEVER, Broken is going to be scrapped, so you can re-use characters from there. You can also re-use characters if they were booted from Dashnet City, however re-using a character and then going inactive again will mean you probably won't be accepted in another thing if there is another.

    Description is not required, but encouraged.

    We've got our Detective!

    Anyone else? Maybe? ((Might @ some people from Dashnet City, you think they'd get annoyed?))

    One last thing to note; Unless you're a class that explicitly cannot be the murderer(Detective), don't state whether or not you're the killer out-of-character.

    I'm gonna leave the extra characters open, but have them as NPCs for now.

    ---

    You're all still recovering from your massive hangovers after last night. The Butler offered you each a glass of seltzer water with cocaine, stating that it helps him wake up after a night of drinking. Then, you came across the body in the main hall.

    It's about half an hour later. Everyone's here except Wilfred and Damien. You can hear them arguing in the game room.

    "I know you two weren't on the best terms, but the least you could do is care!"

    "Just because I'm not sobbing like a child doesn't mean I don't care!"

    Jesus.

    “God, I expected we’d go banoonoos, but I never expected we’d be mad enough to kill! Something’s wrong here...”
    I want to check up the guy’s body

    It appears, in addition to being stabbed 37 times, he was also burned, drowned, strangled, and shot, in that order. Whoever did this was absolutely pissed.

    "You're not showing any reaction about the situation at all! He reached out to you! He reached out to all of us! He wanted to try to make things better between us!"

    "Well, he got himself murdered by doing so." Lightning crackles when the word "murder" is said, thunder booming through the area. "But that's not my problem, now, is it?"

    "Know what? I'll be with the others. You know where to find me when you get your head out of your ass!" Damien storms out of the game room, finding himself here. He knows everyone heard it. ". . . Sorry you had to hear that."

    The Lawyer watches what just happened. "Someone ought to talk to the Colonel, and I guess it's a good idea to not make that person Damien."

    “THE FUCK?!” I shout, to get some attention
    “Alright, apparently, we have a serial killer, a strangeler, a counter striker, a fish, and... whatever someone who kills with fire is.” I say to everyone who is around me.
    “You guys go and do what you should, and I will continue to investigate this ragdoll.”
    I then continue to look at the dead guy, probably search his pockets, his bag if he had one, whatever
    (Also, how about we wait until everyone posts before going through with a turn? It encourages people to post when they know they aren’t a few pages late)

    "Got anything helpful to add? If you're not going to try to help figure out what happened, the least you could do is talk to the Colonel and figure out why he's not reacting to this at all!" Damien snaps at Rob. Then, he calms down a bit . . . "My apologies. I'm just . . . I need some time to process all this." He walks away.

    "Okay, so now we need someone to talk to Damien, AND someone to talk to Wilfred." The lawyer sighs.

    Alright, gonna search his pockets or bag If he had any, maybe his body too

    You find a wallet. It has money in it, so it's definitely not just a murder for money.

    ((I'd like to think, while the rest are doing . . . whatever, Damien is the only one reacting in a normal way to someone he knew and cared about being murdered.

    Also, I forgot about abilities.))

    The lightning never actually glitches, it just starts continuously going until you stop saying murder.

    "Not to mention burned, drowned, strangled, shot . . ." The butler looks down at the corpse.

    "It's no secret that Sapphire has his fair share of enemies . . . since the falling-out, he hasn't really had friends. Besides Damien and the people he literally pays to be here, anyway." He laughs. "He brought that one on himself. You were hit fairly hard by it as well, so you could agree, couldn't you?"
