Welcome to the Spring Medieval Ball

Come Dance, Play, and see if you can solve the murder that occurs
this evening at the Manor of Fernwood. ( Eastern Star hall )

This is an SCA event, and therefore, medieval costumes will be
needed. Door charge will be 10 dollars as usual.

But wait, a murder you say. Yes, someone at the ball will be
murdered, and it will be up to you, to determine who.

Lord Taylor has invited everyone to his manor, to join him in
celebrating the wedding of his son Bartholomew, to the Lady Diana
of Dunnsbury. So please, come out to witness this grand event, and
celebrate with them this glorious day.

Also, remember, this is a murder mystery party. You all have
secrets, and parts to play in the murder that will occur that

At the Start of the ball, I would like all people with parts to be
there between 6:15- 630. I will give you a sheet with questions you
are to ask others, as you arrive at the ball as well as coins, that
you may use for bribery. Use them wisely. I will also explain a few
changes I will need to make to make this work at the ball.

At 8pm, there will be a murder, in a dark corner, somewhere in the
hall, and you will be handed another set of questions, in order to
attempt to determine who the murderer is. There will be a ballot
box, where you can guess your answer. ( one per person, and all
attending the ball are allowed to guess )

At 900, the box will be gone through, and those who guessed will
get a certificate.
