THE SCENE: A Medieval Fayre at Salisbury Castle Guests attending as knights and ladies of the round table are celebrating the discovery of a precious artefact that promises to reveal the location of the legendary Holy Grail.
Each guest is an expert in their field, mainly historians and grail lore fanatics, and had been earnestly working together over the past few months. Finally their collaboration at a dig site under the mythical Stonehenge had resulted in triumph!
The wine flowed abundantly and everyone partook in excited discussions ranging from Arthurian lore to the Stonehenge legend when the festivities came to an untimely halt: Following a petrified scream emanating from the library, the partygoers discovered the body of Kathleen Kenyon-Loret drenched in an unhealthy pool of her own blood. As a storm rages outside the ominous castle walls, suspects need to discover the identity of the killer before another victim joins Kathleen in the hereafter.
Join us for a game filled with mystery and mischief as suspects are transported back in time to expose scandalous secrets and pompous plots to solve this bloodcurdling mystery.
