Bloodworth Falls is an isolated town plagued with scandals. The townsfolk bicker in the streets, and many believe the local government is corrupt. Nevertheless, the mayor is hosting a mysterious masquerade ball in the old Bloodwood Castle. The tickets to the event have sold out in record time. The townspeople are curious to find out why the mayor would put effort into doing something positive in this hopeless town of gloom. Anticipation for the event hangs thickly in the air, and many are already hunting for the perfect mask. You are worried what will happen on this night when toxic people come together. You are alarmed, as you didn't purchase your ticket - it was placed in your mailbox in an unmarked envelope.  Somebody wants you there, but you don't know why.  This is where your story begins.

Celebrate the end of the year with a masquerade murder mystery! Characters will be assigned as you sign up. Please provide an email address, and watch for your character info. Costumes are encouraged! 

For ages 13-19, registration required. Please note - this game requires a certain number of participants to run, so tell your friends!
