Thunderclap. The storm continues to pour outside of the mansion whose
walls are all painted black, which might make the mansion very hot on
the inside during a long day in the middle of summer, but fortunately
for those living inside, it's night time. It is located on top of a
cliff near Azure Heights. This mysterious house is known simply as "The
Estate." Another thunderclap silhouettes the manor against the darkness
of the night. A knock is heard on the massive doors.
A butler who has spent his entire life taking care of the mansion for
the strange and lonely man who owns it walks towards the door in a very
stiff manner. He looks through the peephole, then creaks the door open.
"YIKES"! Robert exclaims, stumbling into the mansion with a soaking
Mithril-rama following close behind. He isn't any dryer than her, since
neither of them had an umbrella. Robert shivers as he looks at the
butler, "Hey, Jeeves, where is this place? Who's in charge? Where's the
The butler in the tuxedo stands still, answering his questions in a
snooty voice, "The name... is Winsley. You are on top of Nightshade
Hill, in the northern mountains. My boss, Mister Rasoul, is in charge
here. The bathroom is down the hall, the twenty-third door to your left.
May I ask you what you are doing here on such a night?"
"Ooooh, long story with tons of loopholes... Not important enough to
mention!" Robert looks up at Winsley with a nervous smile, and upon
noticing how the butler isn't amused, explains his story anyhow, "Okay,
see... I was trying to find a Snorlax after not being able to capture
one in Celadon... and I heard they live in the mountains, so I came
"But how did you scale the mountains without equipment?" Winsley asks,
his expression remaining the same.
Robert laughs awkwardly, "See?! I told you there were loop holes! Oh
yeah, and don't be surprised if there's more guests coming soon, because
I saw a busload of people outside!"
"A busload?" Winsley asks, glancing casually at the window near the
door. "But why would they be here?"
Robert shrugs, "I... don't know...loopholes... but I'm freezing my butt
off, and I need to pee, so I must be going to the bathroom!" Without a
second thought, he dashes down the seemingly endless hall to a bathroom,
hoping he doesn't get lost.
Mithril-rama raises a hand in greeting, "Hi... Winsley..."
"Hello, miss. Are you going to be staying here for the night?" Winsley
inquires, not even smiling once.
"I dunno..." Rilli answers, looking outside the window, "But probably...
with the storm and all."
Winsley nods politely, "Feel free to visit the rooms here... Just don't
go to the Library. Mr. Rasoul is reading, and he'd rather not be
disturbed. The rooms you can visit are the Kitchen, the Laundry Room,
the Living Room, the Observatory, the Billiard Room, the Entertainment
Center, or the Main Lavatory, which your friend is currently occupying."
Mithril-rama sits down on a chair near the entrance. She tightens her
arms over her wet shirt, "Do you happen to have a towel or a room where
I can change into some dryer clothes?"
Winsley nods, then points down the main hall, "Twenty-third door to your
left. Wait for your boyfriend to finish."
(( NS: Okay, whoever wants to participate in the rip-off of "Clue," just
make a post where your character shows up at the Estate. It's all NC
anyhow, so it doesn't have to make sense how or why you're there. If I
get enough people, I'll randomly choose a character to commit a certain
crime, and we'll have to use our deductive powers to figure out
who-dunnit! Yes, I know it's a stupid idea, but it's MY stupid idea! In
the name of NC! ))
