Title: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Story thread: Day 11 **Rescue**
Post by: LadyM on May 06, 2008, 08:40:18 pm
This is the official story thread: I will post the story of what happens on the ship in this thread. Please post and discuss things "in character" in this thread. If there is special information you need to have, I will send that to you by pm. Please keep notes about what information you receive as you are trying to figure out a mystery. If you have questions, please post them in the planning thread.

Welcome aboard the SS Glicker!!

After much waiting, embarkation day finally arrived. The passengers were ready to set sail on the brand new ship for their high sea adventure.

They gathered at the Ship terminal to check in the luggage and receive room keys.

Bodhi felt a little uneasy leaving his luggage, this was his first cruise.

Lines formed as they waited their turn to board the ship. We have a celebrity on board this trip, the famous Huckbuck is traveling with us.

Oviraptor began snapping pictures the moment he arrived. He should have a great photo album when the cruise is done.
(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20One/snapshot_351a9e28_b52cdc7a.jpg)
It seems that two of our passengers might know each other already.
(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20One/snapshot_351a9e28_f52cd13f.jpg)
Finally clearance was given to board the ship!
(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20One/snapshot_351a9e28_152cde88.jpg)
All passengers walked the gangway and entered on board.

In each cabin was a paper that served as a daily guide to the activities on the ship. Be sure to read it daily to see what's happening!

"Welcome, welcome! It is good to have you all here on SS Glicker. My name is Captain Hydromancerx, but you can call me Captain Hydro. I will be your Capitan on this cruse."

"This fine man is First Mate Andrew Ryan."

Didero stood at the Purser's desk ready to take questions or room reassignments. There were bound to be complaints and lost luggage coming in soon.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20One/snapshot_351a9c65_352cf64e.jpg)
Down in the engine room Yossitaru was trying to figure out what that particular button did. He hoped it wouldn't be too important, everything seemed to be working fine.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20One/snapshot_351a9c65_952cf634.jpg)
Our top chef, Alwayswatching was having a meeting with his staff, the food must be perfect and the people must be kept well fed and happy. This was his debut moment!

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20One/snapshot_351a9c65_952cf996.jpg)
Backstage, our diva performer was feeling nervous. This was a very booked cruise and she had doubts that she could pull off a good performance.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20One/snapshot_d513bcdc_152cee0c.jpg)
Capt Hydro checked the latest updates at the port (is that what he's doing?) while First Mate Ryan got a visual on the water conditions. Either that or he's checking out the pool deck. 

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20One/snapshot_d513bcdc_752ce926.jpg)
In the passenger rooms, Lual helped bring the luggage into the rooms. "I wonder what's inside" he thought.

You can post in this thread, comments and dialogs, just post "as your character".

Thinking to self, 'If all goes well, I'm going to be having a late night.  I'd better take a nap until it's time for the lifeboat drill.'

*Looks at a map of the ship*

Level 1 - Crew Deck
*RESTRICTED*

Level 2 - Hydro Deck

'There sure are a lot of guys on this singles cruise . . . '

Another day, another...

*Pauses to count up just how much I get paid*

Free room and board while at sea and whatever I make in tips.

*Starts washing a glass, not because it's dirty but because I've found that tips are more likely if I appear to be working*

Pulls a watch out of his pocket and glances down.

"Looks like there's still time to check out the casino before that mandatory drivel."

Pulls door E8 shut tightly behind himself, turning right and making his way towards the staircase.

My finger traces the map along the wall.

"Ah."

I descend the staircase, moving along the corridor and past the disco, turning left into the casino. It is mostly vacant, with some flashing slot machines and a green-top blackjack table in the corner. The bar along the opposite wall is occupied by a man working over a glass with a rag.

"Looks like there aren't any of the usual ditsy ladies here yet. Guess I'll wait to cash in until later."

I make my way towards the bar, leaning against the counter.

"Got any cigars here?"

"Wouldn't be a proper bar without a decent lung-full, would it?"

I lift out a cheap pack from under the counter.

"'Course these aren't the good ones, you just come back when we hit international waters for those."

*I push the button a few more times before getting bored.*

They said there were issues, but everything looks fine now... I just hope more issues don't come up...

*I look back at the array of machinery once more before taking the elevator up to watch the passengers board.*

"Ulp... lifeboats. Great, it'll be Titanic all over again. Get a hold of yourself, we're not going to sink. Ugh. I need a drink."

I wash my hands and head to the bar

"Uh... three Scotch on the rocks please. Heh."

*Reads the paper before nodding to himself and steps out of the cabin, making sure the door is locked*

"Lets see now"

*Heads over to the closest map studying it for a bit before heading down to the internet cafe*

"I would like to buy an Internet Time plan, and enter the raffle for the free time"

As I walk out of the meeting with Alwayswatching, I sigh and look at my watch.

"Eh, I don' need to report for work until 5ish.  Might as well get a drink in the mean time."

I make my way slowly up to the casino bar, standing down at the far end, away from the passengers.

"Oi!..."

I look at the bartender's nametag.

"... Neoadept.  Mind passing me down a gin 'n tonic when you got a sec?"

*Never riding on a boat before i decide to go to my room on the didero deck. Being worried about how to retain my shape while on this cruise i decided to not to walk but to run and take the stairs. This was a mistake since i don't have my sea legs and was sent crashing in to a nearby waiter whose name i did not see*

(Sorry sorry my bad)

*As i made it to the steps i lost my balance yet again and toppled down the last three landing with a crash at the bottom*

(Nobody saw that right? whew)

*Finally arriving at my room i realize that running only made me feel worse as i went reeling to the bathroom. *Explicit disgusting noises*

(Ugh..off to a wonderful start...)

I take out a twenty and toss it on the counter, sweeping up a pair of cigars.

"Keep the rest."

I pull out a square lighter and flip it open, sticking the tip of one cigar in the flame. I bring it to my mouth and try a few puffs.

I grimace.

"Better than nothing I suppose. You can expect to see me later about those real cigars."

I recline into a casino sofa, puffing contentedly while waiting for four to roll around.

Hydro : "Number One  how are the wind and water conditions?"

Ryan: "Wind Speed: 23, Wind Direction: 180, Water Conditions: A bit choppy now that were out of the bay."

Hydro: "Very Good. Nothing we can't handle, eh Number One?

"Three scotch on the rocks coming down," I called, lifting out three glasses with one hand and a bottle with the other.  Setting them down I crush ice into the glasses before seamlessly filling them with scotch, not spilling even as the ship lurched into motion.  I'd had a long time to practice the not spilling bit and could pour right in a hurricane by now.

As I slid the drinks down I surreptitiously held out a hand for the man's passenger card.  Tips were cash, but anything outside of mealtimes got charged to passenger accounts.  I glance at the newcomer and squint at his name tag, "listen...  Marty, you know the rules.  Crew pays cash up front."

I recklessly step out of a corridor restricted to authorized personnel and murmur to myself.

"Ugh, finally got a chance to leave my post for a bit. They just had to delay the schedule and make me work a whole extra day. Not fair! I only hope the engines don't get screwed up."

I then attend my regular maintenance duties... *snicker* Doodies...

The life boat drill was over, that's always the worst part of the trip. Standing outside in the heat with huge orange life jackets on while the crew stand around in neon green hats acting like they care is just a bit too much. There was still some time before dinner and people were finding their way to the casino bar.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20One/snapshot_351a9c65_752cf92b.jpg)
Krakow Sam was on his third drink and he needed some cash to play the slot machines. *punch punch punch*  Great Distance walked by as she was checking out the ship's decor. "Pathetic", she thought as she glanced at Sam.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20One/snapshot_351a9c65_f52cf7ae.jpg)
"Yay!!" yelled Yossi, as the ship pulled away from the berth and out to sea. "Time for a drink!"

*Notices that one of the luggages doesn't have a lock and proceeds to open it*

"Haha, there is always the naive one. So ready to trust us."

Inside, there are clothes (including a healthy amount of male underwear), a video camera, a toothbrush, shaving cream, and an electric shaver.

*Takes out a few boxer briefs*

"I imagine he won't be missing these."

*Turns over the luggage, looking for the owner's name*

"Let's see... Oh, there it is: 'Inkling'. That sounds oddly familiar."

*Closes the luggage and takes it to to a random room. Takes out a piece of paper from his pocket. It has the names of each passenger in the boat and their room number*

"Let's see who is staying in this room. Great Distance, eh? I knew they wouldn't care about the missing boxers."

*Walks back to the room where the rest of the luggage is located. On the way, he goes into his room and throws the boxers into a pile.*

"So THAT is you you pathetic incompetent bastard! I have been on this ship for HOURS, but my lugage still haven't been unpacked and why do I have to share my room with some pathetic looser? Who do you think I am? Britney Spears?"

Where the hell did that girl in the green top go? Is she the only female passenger on this ship? God what a sausage fest.... Wait did those guys at the station book me on "gay" cruse?!? Diabolical bastards! Well at least there are some female staffers to hit on, and that performer chick had some nice legs on her. Wait a minute... was that a dude? God I'm going to kill those guys when I get ba- There's that green top girl.

"Muscles? Bring them on! Things seem to be going well and I've got time to kill."

*I shoot a grin over to Great Distance as I await the food.*

"You know, this ship almost entirely maintains itself. This whole thing is almost like a paid vacation."

*I turn back to the food and start eating.*

               Mussels? Hmmm, I gotta try this one. I hope they're good.

               As Yuu was eating the mussels specially prepared by the chef, he could not help but wonder that something was just not right about the atmosphere of the place. At first glance, everything seemed to be fine. The food, the people, the scenery. Everything was as great as he expected it to be. Though, he always had this gut feeling that something was a bit out of place in this cruise, he just can't figure out what it exactly was.

               At any case, the food doesn't seem to have anything in it. Actually, I never expected it to be this delicious.

               "Thanks for that great dish! Well, I'll be going on my way now." Better check on that new RP they've started.

I walked into the Casino, and turned to the crowd that had begun to congregate around the casino bar.

"Sorry I'm late."

I pulled a small pair of scissors from my pocket and grinned.

"I had a little trouble cutting the cards."

I had picked those up just for that joke. While working on the ship I had found that it helps the passengers relax.

I sat down in my position behind the card table and dealt out an imaginary game of Blackjack. I picked up the cards; I had a pair of twos, the imaginary person opposite me had Blackjack. I smiled and looked up.


"Anyone want a game?"

I collected the cards and reshuffled the deck. It looked like it was the start of another day of the house losing. At least it would make the passengers happy, which was always the most important thing.

As any good chef would do, Alwayswatching came out to see how everyone liked his food.

On his way to dinner, Bodhi noticed the ship's doctor. "Hmm, I wonder what he keeps in his medicine cabinets" he thought.

'I guess they are all sitting down there waiting for me, full of expectations...' I thought as I layed down in the tub. 'They can't wait to get a glimse of me... but the party sounds like a bore!' The champagne tasted wonderfull, theres something speciall with drinking while laying in the bath. 'Hmm, I think I maybe have to pop in just for a few minutes atleast, I can't dissapoint my fans...'. Then suddenly, someone knocked on the door.

Durgon had been exploring most of the ship while the other passangers clamoured about, but his stomach was beginning to turn against him. "Well I guess its best that I eat, I took some days off from the force for this so I might as well enjoy it", sighed Durgon as he made his way towards the dining hall. The menu looked great and he ordered a steak with some mashed potatoes and corn. After eating the meal he leaned back in his chair the police badge shining proudly. "That was a great meal", thought Durgon to himself as he got up and stretched. Although still young Durgon was hardened by several years in the force but he could not resist the temptation to just live a little but first things first he had to work his meal off. He would spend some time in the Gym and then head out to the Disco Room.

Gotta sound mad to the crew, but oh boy, finally some action!

I start trotting to the passenger rooms, when I suddenly remember the celebrity traveling with us. I briskly walk to Huckbuck's suite, but I see Met standing at the door as I approach.

"Is everything all right with our celebrity, Met, or did he complain already?"

Not wanting to answer the door as it might be adoring fans, Huckbuck and the Priest Xeno waited until Met and Didero had left and then they went to dinner.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20One/snapshot_351a9e28_f52f0b29.jpg)

Durgon, Ovi and Bohdi finished their dinner and headed to the show. Later Durgon would go work out and dance.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20One/snapshot_351a9e28_f52f0d27.jpg)

Even some of the crew snuck in the back to watch the show. After all, the performer is one of the few women on board this boat.

*Sitting in room looking at various ship related documents*

'Hmm, it doesn't say anything about this being an alternative-style cruise on my ticket packet.'

*Slums in chair*

'Well, at least it will be easy enough to figure out who she is -- there's only two women passengers on the boat!'

*Ironic grin*

'I just have to compete with about 30 other lonely men.'

*Hops up and goes to mirror*

"It's time bring out my A-game. -- *Does a double finger point at the mirror* --  All's fair in love and war."

*Picks up copy of The Daily Sail*

I've got to stay one step ahead of those other guys.

*Looks at clock*

"Crap! It's already 9!  I must have dozed off."

I'll go get a quick bite to eat now.
At 9:30  I'll go book my spa and hair for formal night -- I wonder what night that is?  It shouldn't take too long.
9:45      I'll scope out the library, get an internet package, and enter the raffle.  It is the most likely place to run into her.
10:00   I'll check out the gift shop.  I've already got a book for her in my luggage -- for the suprise reveal,--  but I'll need some sweet mementos and some wrapping paper for now.
10:30  Get back here and get ready to go to the singles mingle.

Well that's just great. My 'relaxing' cruise and that absolute witch of a woman happens to be on board. I mean, the sheer number of cruises every year. And she's on mine?

It's ok, I'll just avoid her. Yeh, fine, avoid her. There are a lot of people. I'll just blend in. All's good.

I move along the back row of the theater, sliding into a comfortable seat.

Eyes closed, I listen to the music streaming from the front for several minutes.

The segment comes to an end and the seated audience breaks into applause.

My eyes open.

I clap, tepidly, lip curved down in displeasure.

Yuu went to the computer room and signed up for the internet plan. He immediately signed on and sent an email to his friend, This cruise was a break from his usual daily chat with The Rockman. He wanted to tell him about his trip so far.

Durgon made his way into the Gym after being in the theatre for a while. Several people were starting to leave the Gym and it was getting late, he would stay in the Dance room for only a short while before going to his room and getting organized. A good hour or two went by and after finishing up with the heavy bag Durgon went to his quarters, he would have a shower and get better and more comfortable clothes on as well as unpack before heading towards the Disco.

Ovi wandered around the ship all day. In his head is was telling himself that he was just scoping out places for good pictures, but he knew what he was really doing.

I hope I have the will power to stay away this time, he thought.

So he just wandered aimlessly, snapping pictures to keep his mind off it.

Oh crap, he thought, how did I get here?

He felt dizzy, he needed to get away from here. The ground felt like it would fall away at any moment. He slowly backed himself into the elevator again.

Man, that was close. Mental note: stay off Didero Deck.

He snapped a few pictures of inside the elevator to take his mind off from it.

Then, another troubling thought returned to his brain.

What will I do if I run into him? I'll have to formulate an exit strategy for every deck. Well, not Didero Deck, he chuckled to himself.

He decided to head to the library, somewhere quiet so he could sit and think.

My duties were over so I figured I might as well head down to the casino.  It didn't take me long to pick my roommate, Neoteric, out from the crowd.  We played a few rounds of cards before I decided to head off.

"Well, It's been fun.  I'll see you later.  Say, could you do me a huge favour.  From what I hear there's this prosecutor here on the ship.  We go way back, but I havn't managed to find him yet.  Could you see if you could keep an eye out for him?"

SO disstastefull. 'This trip haven't been anything but hell, this far' I thought as I tied the tie. "I'm going down to the disco, I don't know why I bother.. its probably a bore..."

"This is my first cruise. Kids were willing to come in this ship too; I think better to buy some souvenir for them".
"I was in that deck some hours ago, when cutting my hair... if I had remembered before..."
"Now is too late; I'm tired. I'll stay here some more and then go back to my cabin".

 
He took his personal planner and wrote a note about need to go to the Gift Shop in the next day.
He headed to the elevator and went to his cabin on Inkling Deck.

Sat on the bed and looking to outside, admiring the ocean, he thought to himself:
"I have so much work to do; even being in this ship I can have some great idea".
 
He took his personal planner and drew some lines, trying to sketch something, but was sleepy and no inspired enough. He closed the planner, put it over the nightstand and went to sleep.

I enter the casino and shift the stub of my second cigar from one side of my mouth to the other.

The place was now full of life. The pinging and clanking of slot machines, the general hum of many people speaking at one. Still at a lack for ditsy women to fool out of their money.

I pull the cigar from my mouth with my thumb and forefinger, tossing it onto a sand-covered ashtray.


"Oh, yes."

I glance down at my pocket watch, then look up and make my way over to the bar, heaving myself up on a seat.

I smack two hundreds down on the bar.

"I'll take a case or two of those quality cigars. Don't be stingy."

I talk to her some more and try cracking a couple jokes, some go better then others. I take my shot.

"It looks like things are starting to wine down, if you feel like a night cap you should come join me in my room , E2 Inkling Deck."

I give her a quick wink and walk back to my room.

*Sits in a corner of the bar quietly sipping from a large glass*

"Hmph," Inkling grunted to himself.  "All these people getting smashed on their first night, before they get their sea legs.  I'm going to be handing out seasickness pills to half the boat tomorrow.  But at least this group likes to party, maybe business will be good.  That guy in the black shirt kept staring at me, I have a feeling he'll be needing a lot of 'medical help.'"

After stepping out of the DJ booth, the man in the Santa hat made his move on the girl drinking champagne. She had no intention of going to his room tonight. She quickly found her way back to her own room.

Finally by about 3:00 am everyone had retired to their rooms and the ship was quiet. Dawn broke the early morning as the cruise has now entered Day 2.

The First Mate was finishing up the night's reports on the ship computer. The Captain was starting to stir as the sunlight filled the room.

The Daily Sail was delivered to each room's mail slot.

The Room Steward began cleaning the cabins. Perhaps he'd find some more additions to his collection today.

I sat up and yawned

Oh Christ...

I looked to my side, and sure enough, the prosecutor was there, in the depths of sleep. I quietly got up and gathered my stuff, before tiptoeing from the room.

Damn damn damn damn damn...

I got back to my room and showered, then dressed. There was some flyer on my floor. I picked it up. Free champagne eh? Sounded good. Maybe I'd pop along. I had the feeling I'd be drinking a bit. In fact, why wait? I'll just go to the bar and start now. Liquid breakfast

However, just as I was leaving the room I heard a scream.

               "What was that?!"

               I've just finished taking a bath when I heard a loud scream coming from somewhere nearby, though I wasn't sure where it came from exactly. After changing to new clothes, I quickly headed towards the origin of the sound. "Man, I hope this isn't something big."

"A what?! I'll be right there!"

I quickly change from my pyjamas into my uniform, and run to room the steward was cleaning.

"My god, a body! Go fetch the doctor, and get the security officer down here to keep people from seeing this!"

The steward is rather slow to respond, it's probably the shock... But there's no time to lose...

"Go on, git! We haven't got all day!"

Except maybe that poor bugger...

I kneel down next to the body to check for life signs.

I wipe the sleep out of my eye's. "What a night," I say to myself. That girl in the green top apparently didn't come to my room last night unless I passed out before she got here. What was her name again? Great Distance? Oh I'll go the distance with her... or someone else, it's only a matter of time. Well at least I got to spin some..."My records! Tell me I didn't leave those back at the bar." I jump out of bed and look around my room and there not here, "Crap." I'm not even sure why I brought them in the first place. "Damn it santa!"

I throw on something on and hurry back to the bar. I winch when a ray of sunlight hit's my eye's. "Great I'm hung over too," I mutter to myself, as I pull out my sun glasses and quickly put them on. One of the crew members rushes past me to one of the cabins. "What's the dude's hurry?" I get to the DJ booth and there not here. "What the hell. Someone stole my records! SECURITY!"

Post by: Bona Fide Supraman on May 10, 2008, 06:49:47 am
I ran to where the scream had come from. There was quite a commotion. As I went to enter the room, a steward sprinted out, his face ashen.

What the absolute hell?

I entered the room and took a glance into the bathroom.

Ok, now I think I really need that drink.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Story thread: Day 2
Post by: Didero on May 10, 2008, 07:42:27 am
I see a man enter, who is understandably shocked when seeing the bloody mess.

"Please sir, I'm gonna have to ask you to leave. Here, a coupon for a free drink in the bar", I say to calm him down, and hand him the coupon while pushing him towards the door.

He's gonna have a hard time sleeping tonight... I'd best close the door, and wait outside for the security guard to take over keeping people out. I hope he doesn't take too long though, I've got plenty of work to do.

"A murder you say?" I was chocked. A person on the same boat as me had been killed! This will make the headlines for sure... 'I must do some work so that it can't appear as if I had something to do with it' I thought, and asked the man; "Who was it? What was his name?".
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Story thread: Day 2
Post by: Yuu on May 10, 2008, 08:03:00 am
               As I finally arrived at the place where the sound came from, I saw the purser guarding the door. From the looks on his face I was sure this wasn't going to be good. "Sir.", I said to the purser as I approached him. "What just happened? I heard a scream and then I came down here to check it out."

*Sitting at breakfast*

'Why am I the only passenger on this boat dressed like they're on vacation?  These people need to learn to relax.'

*Pulls out todays copy of The Daily Sail*

'If I learned anything last night is that everybody here makes their own schedule, but let's see what the crew had planned anyway.

I won the internet minutes!  Woohoo!  Now I feel silly buying two hundred minutes.
The internet cafe opens in a few minutes I'd better head down there and check-in.

I'll make my tentative schedule first though.
Gift shop at 9.  Got to do that.  They were closed when I went by last night.
Auction or Excursion.  I'd better just find out about the excursions.  I would have to explain where I got anything too fancy.

Hmm, maybe I'd better not plan too much.  If I'm lucky sciencegrl will email me about her cruise and I'll know where to be and when.
I can't wait to surprise her.'


*Gets up from breakfast and gets into the elevator*
'I never did get my hair appointment either.'

*Gets off the elevator on Spore Deck*

*A small crowd has gathered around the Purser's desk*

"Where's my underwear?!"
"My lucky boxers are missing!"
"Are you trying to force us to buy your souvenir underoos?"

The person at the Purser's desk replied anxiously, "I promise we'll get this all sorted out once I speak with the steward."
*The phone on his desk rings*
"I bet that's him now."
*Casually puts the phone to his ear*
"There's a what where", he whispers into the phone?
*Looking to the crowd*
"Excuse me, I have to go," rushing off.

'Wonder what all that's about?  At least I don't have to worry about my underwear going missing.  I've been going commando since the Carter administration.'

*Turns and walks into the beauty salon*
'Hmm, nobodies here yet.'
*Sees a blank sign-in sheet for today*
'I'll put myself down for 3, so I'll be ready for the cocktail party.'

*Heads back to the elevator and goes to the library*
'Just swipe my card and it should log me on; is what they told me.'

*Sitting down at a terminal*

*Swiftly, yet sloppily, yanks the sushi knife out of the corpse with his bare hands and waves it in the air*

"Did someone lose their knife?"

"Please sir, I'm gonna have to ask you to leave. Here, a coupon for a free drink in the bar" said the Purser. I recognised him from the day before.

I couldn't believe how shocked I was. I've encountered death before. Many of my cases are murder trials. I'm not spared any grisly details, yet seeing the real thing...Jesus Christ

I made my way to the bar on the Hydro deck. The bartender was there. Unusual for such an early hour.
I put my coupon on the bar.

"Something strong please."

I let out a small sigh of relief when I see the security guard approach, and let him pass. Before I can stop him, he yanks the knife out of the body and triumphantly holds it up. I roll my eyes.

He's clearly not too experienced, but he'll have to learn someday...

"Nothing to see here people, go back to enjoying the cruise!", I shout at the people that had grouped in front of the door while quickly scanning the people that are here and, more importantly, who aren't, which could prove useful in the investigation. I then walk back into the room, close the door behind me and lock it.

"I'm sure you're quite able to do this investigation yourself", I say to the guard, trying hard not to make it sound sarcastic, "but would you like some help?"

*Barely able to contain the nausea from the combined forces of the rocking of the boat and the gruesome image of the corpse (and still carrying a pair of boxers in his pocket from the first room that was cleaned), rushes out of Vivec's room*

"For a moment there, it felt like I was in The Shining."

*Reacting to the nausea, passes the back of his hand over his mouth*

"Ugh. I better go sit down before I start hallucinating."

*Goes into his room; takes out the boxers and places them on the pile (moved under the bed last night so that the roommate wouldn't see it); and lays on the bed*

"I will just rest for a moment."

Dr. Inkling was woken by a loud banging on his door.  One of the crew told him about what had happened as quickly as possible. 

*Throws his coat on top of his pajamas and rushes to the scene of the crime.*

"Hey! Ship doctor, coming through!  What do you think you're doing, just standing around gawking!?"

*Shoves his way through the crowd*

"This man could still be alive, he needs medical atten-  ...oh.  Yeah, he's dead."

"Hey, wait a second.  Shouldn't you have checked that knife for fingerprints before you started waving it around?"

"Happen to know what all the screaming was about?" I looked up. It was the bartender.

"There was..." I started. But couldn't finish. I took the drink he offered me, and downed it. It was definitely strong enough. Almost instantly I could feel the alcohol seeping into my bloodstream. I asked for another. "I...I just saw a body. Some guy, he was...stabbed."

Comes down to the hallway where everyone is gathered.  Seeing the crowd, walks away quickly.

"Well that confirms it, someone was killed.  Gnh...  This doesn't bode well..."

Makes his way, to the casino bar, offering a quick nod of acknowledgment to his roommate and the guest there before turning to the bartender.

"Hey Neoadept.  You hear about what happend?  Listen, I'm sorta having a mini-freakout here, mind whipping me up something?  Anything."

Produces some cash from his back pocket and places it on the bar.  Is very jittery.

Finally getting up, I pick up the daily sail from the mail box.

Hm... that might be fun...

Quote from: The Daily Sail
11:00 am Bingo in the Hydro Deck Show room

Setting the page aflame, I walk out of my room allowing the ashes to fall where they will. Making my way up to the Hydro deck, I hear panicked talk of a murder.

Hm... does this mean no bingo?

The barman gave me another drink before turning to another guy and starting a conversation.

I just sat and drank. John Coltrane was gently being pumped into the room from the speakers. I began to relax.

Ok, ok, calm. Good. There are other things to think about. I slept with her again.

Maybe thinking wasn't the best thing to do.

I opened my eyes, and saw the Ship Times. Poker at 2.00? That would do. It wasn't for a few hours though. I sat back and let the alcohol and jazz seep in.

Though the Captain had been notified, the Purser felt he needed to see him in person. The body was moved down to the crew deck to keep people from seeing any more than they should and the room was carefully cleaned.

Before Bingo today, the Captain was expected to make an announcement.

The email from sciencegrl was short and to the point.  She had a great dinner and seen a show.  The show Slarti had managed to miss.  She had gotten an internet plan though, so keeping an eye on the library would be a good idea.

Walking back to the elevator, Slarti noticed a crowd forming in the casino bar. 

'Man, this ship is full of alcholics.'

Slarti went up to his floor.  When the elevator doors opened he was stopped by some member of the crew.

"This will be all cleaned up soon.  Here's some coupons for drinks and $20 worth of chips in the casino.  The Captain will have an announcement by 11.  Please leave this deck."

"Um, okay," said Slarti more than a little confused.

Twenty dollars for the casino?  Did all the toilets back up?

Slarti went back down to the casino. 

He was walking up to the bar when he heard,
"Dunno.  It happened on the Inkling deck so I can only guess it was a passenger.  I can't say for sure."

"What happened on Inkling deck," Slarti quizzed, more to everyone at the bar than just the speaker?

Durgon rubbed the sleep from his eyes, he had routinely gotten up early in the morning but this time he slept in. Making his way to the dining room for breakfast he began to get worried. There were buzzings of a killing and immedietly his Police Instincts kicked in. He would have to start investigating if the rumour was true. However being a Police Officer was risky if there was a Mafia member onboard, they could try to take him out so he would need to seek help and question others privately.

Finishing up his meal Durgon made his way to the gym and ran on the treadmill to wake himself up. "Who could it be...everyone on this cruise seemed so normal", thought Durgon to himself as he finished his run. Perhaps he could make out the key players and then make an assessment from there.

The man who had asked the question was one of the most bum looking person able to afford a cruise I have ever seen. He must be some sort of activist, and you don't want the activists against you. "I am sorry my friend to inform you, that a poor gentleman was found brutally murdered in his cabin. I haven't seen the body myself but rumors has it that is was gritty. Please, lets have a drink sir, we all need a drink today." I said with my superstar voice.

Slarti was taken aback at the idea someone had been brutally murdered and frightfully aware that would also require a brutal murderer.

"Maybe it's not to early to start drinking after all," he half mumbled to himself.

*Turning to the bartender*

"Hurricane, please."

Slarti sat down to listen to any who'd talk and waited impatiently for the Captain's announcement.

'Who is this bastard who come and steal my new friend!?' I think as the new guy sits down next to the activist. 'Oh well, getting mad won't help, atleast not now.' I sit down on the other side of the bearded guy and asks the bartender for champagne. 'I might aswell start picking up what people think about this...' I turn to my the others and asks out loud to anyone who listens; "This reminds me of that game, Cluedo, we are now at the point where we start to supect eachother while we try to figure out who did it. Who caould've done it you think?".

After hearing about the murder, I had ran up to Inkling deck to see for myself. A murder! On the cruise! This couldn't be happening.

I made my way back down to the Casino and collapsed in one of the seats in front of the bar.

"I can't believe it... Someone murdered on our ship..." I wasn't speaking to anyone in particular, but I was hoping that someone was listening.

"I really hope they catch them quickly. If they don't... Knowing my luck I'll be next." I turned to the guy next to me.

"Ever since that n- No. I'll demonstrate it." I produced a deck of cards from my pocket, shuffled it and passed it to the man next to me.

"You probably ought to shuffle them too, prove I'm not doing anything funny."

I came out of my alcohol and music induced coma and turned to see where the voice had come from. It was that celebrity guy, the actor. I'd always thought he was a bit of an arsehole in his films, but what he said was true.

Colonel Mustard in the bedroom with a kitchen knife. I thought to myself.

"I've only had one drink. I think I need another, though... Neo?"

I sighed, held out my employee card and turned back to the man next to me.


"He was stabbed. With one of the ship's knives. I help with the washing up sometimes when the house has a really bad day, and I recognised it."

I held the deck out again. "I'm not kidding. Can someone shuffle it? The management hate me for losing so much and I want to check whether something in my subconscious is doing it deliberately."

I knock on the door to the bridge, and enter without waiting for an answer.

"Excuse me sir, I'm sure you heard of our little problem. Do you have an idea as to what to do about it?"
(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20Two/snapshot_d513bcdc_9531da01.jpg)
Yes, yes, I've been doing some thinking about this horrible thing. I can't have this blemish on my record, I've decided to declare martial law. We'll handle all of this ourselves. No need to tell anyone outside of the ship. We are not going back to port either. These people paid for a cruise and they'll get one. Also, toss that nasty corpse overboard too, no sense taking up space and risk a rotting body.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20Two/snapshot_d513bcdc_f531d9f4.jpg)
Reluctantly, the Purser agreed, after all, the Captain is the master of the ship. They left together so the Captain could make his announcement.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20Two/snapshot_d513bcdc_f531e12c.jpg)
People had gathered for the Bingo game. The Cruise Director introduced the Captain. His speech was also carried through out the ship on the loudspeaker. It would also be played on the TV throughout the day for anyone who was sleeping. Passenger and crew alike were in attendance.

Well, as most of you know, we had an unfortunate incident last night. I assure you that we are investigating the events and will find the person who did this horrible thing. So as not to delay your cruise, we are now under Martial Law of the Seas. We must find this killer and toss them overboard! The murderer must die !! +

Cheers rang out as he talked. The killer would be caught and they could still have fun at sea.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20Two/snapshot_d513bcdc_b531e0a9.jpg)
We will take a vote on who you think killed poor Vivec. That seems to be the most diplomatic way. In one day (24 hours) that person will be tossed overboard and we will continue on with our trip. If you have reason to accuse someone, let it be known.

I saw the Sericurty Guard walk away from me, "Is he trying to avoid me?" I followed him down to the Inkling deck, he was to far away to get his attention. He pushed his way past a crowd of people. "Hey security get back here, someone stole my records," I say as I get to the crowd. One of the passengers turns to me a says someone been murdered. "Great  ::)" I mutter under my breath I probably look like an arsehole right now, more so then usual. I try to look in the room and I see the Guard waving a bloody knife around. Is that a body? I try to get a better look but one of the ship employees shuts the door and tells us to clear out.

Someones dead! I catch the whiff of burnt duck in the air. That can't be right, can it. I smell again and realize that I smell pretty ripe. The crowd is breaking up. I go down to the hall back to my room and jump in the shower. "Great I'll probably never see my records back now."  >:(

After that I head back upstairs to the bar. This cruse is turning out just swell.

My thoughts had been interupted by the loudspeaker. The captains speach was worthless, such a pagan! 'Well, atleast now we have a chance to get rid of the murderer, or maybe that anoying photographer?', I thought to myself. "So guys, I have to go and do some... research. I want to know who did this so that noone innocent is hurt." I said as I stood up about to leave the bar to go back to my deck.

Crap crap crap crap, he thought as he rubbed his eyes awake. I did it again.

He got up from his bed and looked at the clock; 11:12, it said. He searched for his wallet and looked inside.

Only four dollars left, he thought. So much for using cash this vacation. I really need to be more careful.

He got dressed and looked for his camera.

I should delete these, but they're such good pictures.

Instead, he popped out the memory stick and put it his drawer, under his socks. He reached into his camera bag and got out another memory stick and slid it into the slot.

Now to do something to keep my mind off last night.

He grabbed his wallet, stuck it into his pocket, and walked out the door. He headed to the dining room to have some lunch.

No sense in having breakfast now, he thought.

He walked into the dining room and took a seat. He noticed that the room was nearly devoid of patrons. When the waitress came over to take his order he asked, "Where is everybody?"

She went rigid for a second then replied, "Didn't you hear? There was... there was a murder last night." She was clearly not comfortable being the one delivering this cold news. He sat there for a second stunned, but before he could speak she added, "There was a meeting in the theater just before eleven, didn't you go?"

"No, I was still sleeping at the time."

"Oh," she said. Then after a long pause, "Well, are you ready to order?"

"Uh, yes," he said, "I'll have the cheeseburger."

After his awkward meal in the dining room, Ovi headed back to his room.

I don't feel like doing anything right now, he thought.

He flipped on the television to see what was on. It was the captain; he was talking about the murder. He leaned in closer to hear what he said.

"...find the person who did this horrible thing. So as not to delay your cruise, we are now under Martial Law of the Seas. We must find this killer and toss them overboard! The murderer must die!"

The audience cheered.

Wow, he thought, that seems a little extreme.

After the audience died down, the captain continued "We will take a vote on who you think killed poor Vivec. That seems to be the most diplomatic way. In one day (24 hours) that person will be tossed overboard and we will continue..."

"Thrown overboard..." he muttered aloud. He turned it off. This is going to get crazy real fast, he thought. Well, I better get ready now so I can take a few pictures on my way to the Cocktail party at four.

After all, he took his camera everywhere he went.

Martial law? I thought, and then declares a vote?  Those are two ideas that don't fit no matter how I look at it, Captain must be off his rocker.  Or, I thought with sudden suspicion, a little too sane.  Lets face it, the captain had to be a little drunk after that rum, and he's got all the keys, including the one to the drink stock.  He gets liquored up, kills a man, and has the body thrown over before it can be investigated.  Hold a vote, some poor bastard gets thrown after the corpse, and ol' Cap' Hydro gets off scott free.  Still not enough to go on though, certainly not enough to risk my job.  I'll just have to check with the first mate at that party...

Well, the party should be underway by now, time to make my way there.

Ovi looked down at his ship map, and suddenly was very nervous.

I didn't realize that's where the disco was, he thought. Well, I already got dressed up, maybe I can keep my willpower up until it's over. Some one to talk to would sure help though.

He made his way to the disco and entered the room, a few people were already here. He went over and mingled by the pink sectional seating, trying to distance himself as much as possible.

               It was time for the party and I've almost finished preparing myself. Thinking back to what happened on Inkling deck, I just couldn't believe myself. "I'd better be prepared. Blocking my room seems to be a good idea." Tossing people overboard is way too extreme. This is just plain insane! Anyway, I won't vote in this until I've got enough evidence. I don't want to be responsible for some innocent guy getting tossed overboard. "Anyway, its time to get to the party." But no drinking for me. I can't let myself get drunk while someone like that is on the loose.

               "I have to find out more about the people working in this ship. And more importantly, the crime scene." I wasn't sure why I said that, but it must've been the child in me. Though I had to be careful. This wasn't just a game, lives are involved and I have to do what I can. "Man, I'm getting a bit too paranoid!"

"As long as I'm not the one that has to clean it up, I would be happy if there was a murder every night. I get a free day and a drawerful of underwear for the collection, just like I did today, plus it's one more room that I don't have to care about (not like I cared much about the other ones, either way). Sure, it was quite a shock to find that body today, but it's all better now. It livened things up and everyone has probably forgotten the missing underwear by now."

"We will take a vote on who you think killed poor Vivec."

"Hah. Poor. He probably got killed for picking a fight with some drunkard (we have plenty of those in this ship), or maybe because he went too far with some woman (we don't have enough of those in this ship)."

The deep thumping noise of base disrupts Inkling's thoughts.

Those words, although familiar, stil hit me pretty deep. How can she say that? I'm a lawyer, defender of the innocent, whilst she tries to bang up or sue anyone and everyone. She doesn't care if they're innocent, as long as she gets her fee at the end.

She's obviously sour about the last case we had against each other, I destroyed her.

After taking a look, I make my way back to the engine room and takes a seat and starts entertaining myself with the lighter.

Everyone has been on about the murder whole day. I heard about it soon after I woke up and later I learned that the captain was planning to find the murderer himself and then get him thrown overboard.

I want no part in this insanity. If anyone should be thrown off, it's the captain. This ship should be turning around, so we could all get out of this hellhole. At least the captain should be arrested. If they throw off another person, it's murder. And it's his fault. What are they going to do once it turns out that they just killed another innocent person? There will be questions asked once the ship returns to port, for sure.

At the disco I'm trying to forget about my worries with a glass of champagne. Some idiot was trying to hit on me again. And there's the guy with the santa hat again. Great. Maybe I shouldn't have been so friendly with him last night.

I'll vote for the captain, let's see how he likes about that. That idiot.

Slartibartfast was sitting in his room trying to absorb the events of the last few hours.
He had tried to act as if nothing was wrong.  He even went through the motions of getting ready for the formal night, but when the time came he didn't really feel like going.

There had been a murder, and now he was under drunken martial law and drafted into a ship wide tribunal.  It didn't seem real, but it was.  Some of the other guests had been discussing it like it was just another shipboard activity, not the life and death matter it was.

How could he decide who was guilty of a crime he only had hearsay knowledge of?
 
'We might as well draw lots to find our Jonah.
I may not be a trained investigator, but I can think logically and I've seen enough CSI to at least ask the right questions.
Who was this Vivec guy?  Why would some one want him dead?  Most people are killed by someone they know.  Who did Vivec know?  The alternative of course it was a random crazy murder, but what are the chances of that?  I don't want to think about it, but even then there would be some crazy logic motive.
I know he was killed on this deck, but I don't know in which room.  Was it even his room?  Did he have a roommate?  Did someone else pay for his room?  Did it look like anything was taken?  What was the murder weapon?  Did they establish a time of death?

Hmm, who should know the answers to these questions, or at least be able to get them?
. . .
The Cruise Director.  He should know about all the rooming arrangements and knows all the crew.  Even if he doesn't know something, he should know who should and will be able to get an answer quicker than a nosy passenger.


Slartibartfast left his room looking for the Cruise Director and some answers.

Only in an afterthought did he think to himself, 'I can't tell the wives about any of this . . . and I still have to find sciencegrl -- even if just to keep her safe!'

Durgon had spent the majority of the day scanning the ship, observing those that were onboard. Here and there he would question several members before moving on hoping to get people reassured that something more "Civilized" was going on instead of the Captains idea which he heard later on in the day. He would however have to make his own vote lest they belive he is the murder and so he did. Afterwards he began to party and drink but quickly stopped when he remembered he had a duty to do.

Three conga lines later, the Whiskey Sours were catching up to the Captain. His head was spinning so he sat down for a bit.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20Two/snapshot_351a9c65_5532367e.jpg)
"brrrffttt" he said as he held his mouth and left the room. With all the excitement of the day, he forgot to eat and now was feeling really sick.

After the Captain left, the party was pretty much over and it was time for dinner. The passengers moved from the party to the dining room and most had the lobster and Prime Rib. The show started on time and the Performer did a magnificent job. Her best number was a song was one from Russia in which she did a dance routine that got her a standing ovation.

After dinner, Ovi visited the teller machine. $4.00 wouldn't be enough to cover the rest of his trip.

The Poker games started up on the casino and the tables were full tonight. Captain Hydro felt better after eating and joined them for hand. At this point, he figured mingling with the passengers was more important than steering the ship. Good thing his first mate was on duty.

At almost the exact time that the Captain was trying to make contact with the Coast Guard, a fire broke out in the engine room. Panic filled the air as crew members grabbed fire extinguishers and rushed to put out the fire. After a long fight, the fire was extinguished but the damage was done. The ship had lost its #2 engine and the radio antennae.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20Two/snapshot_351a9c65_b5338253.jpg)
The ship could only float now, helpless in the ocean with no contact with the outside world.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20Two/snapshot_351a9e28_553384f0.jpg)
The passengers unaware of the fire heard about the final vote and ironicly it was the Captain himself who was voted most likely to be the killer. They stormed off to find the Captain.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20Two/snapshot_351a9e28_353385e0.jpg)
Over the side he went and into the murky water below.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20Two/snapshot_351a9c65_f53382e8.jpg)
The Purser got an frantic phone call from the First Mate. "The Captain is gone, the engines are gone and our radio is gone. We must try to keep our passengers calm, do you best."

The Captain was not the murderer. He was passed out in a drunken stupor all night on the couch in the bridge and could not have killed anyone. The First Mate was with him most of the time, except for when he went to get coffee. Better luck next time.

Dr. Inkling was leading Bodhi to his office when an angry mob of passengers ran by carrying the Captain.  Inkling started to call out in the defence of Capt. Hydro and sanity in general but held his tongue.

"If I get in the way of an angry drunken lynch mob, I'll probably get tossed overboard, too." He thought.

After being stopped in his tracks by the thoughts racing through his head, Dr. Inkling motioned to Bodhi and quickly stormed off to his office, cursing under his breath.

After partying for a while and enjoying the dance with one of the crew members Durgon made his way to the gym he would stay in the Sauna for a while and relax by working around the Gym, perhaps that would clear his thoughts. However on the way he heard that the Captain had been thrown overboard, Ironic yet pitiful. "I have to find out who the real murder is", thought Durgon as he hit the punching bag several times. "Its my duty".

Thinking aloud to himself alone in U4 that evening --

"The captain was an idiot, but I'm not so sure if he'd do something like that.
I mean, the guy was sloshed half the time, but...
I don't know about that engine fire either. I've checked those things constantly and they're pretty hardy old things.

This has to be a government plot to eliminate somebody important aboard this ship. Those damned G-men and their plots.

But I can't trust anyone! What the hell do I do?"

Thinking for a moment...

"Bah, I'm going to go check the engine room again. Not a chance in hell am I getting any sleep tonight."

"Wh.. actually, I just wanted to.."

He's gone. Whatever.

"Sigh..."

Scratching his head and looking around the room, it looked pretty much the same as it did earlier.
No cleaning appears to have been done, which is good.


"There's never a real detective onboard these stupid cruises. I am always the one who has to reveal the government's involvement and nobody ever cares.. *grumble grumble*"

Poking around the only workable engine, I can't seem to spot any sabotage.
If only there was a way to rig it so we could still move the ship a little. But this isn't exactly a wooden tugboat.


"Man, it's dark over here. I guess I should have brought a flashlight. 'n some tools... bleh."

I continue to examine the engines.

"You can't be in here, this is off limits for passengers." It seems to be enough to send Santa away.

Hmm. I'm getting weird looks again.

"Has he been drinking" I heard from behind me.

Well, I'm not drunk... Guess I should poke around.

"Ahoy there, Officer. I'm thinking it's strange that the engine room caught fire and we just happend to lose an engine AND the radio antennae. I think it's a bit fishy. Perhaps we should check it out."

After a game of poker I decided to do some research, who must have been busy during the murder? 'Well, there are many that I haven't got an idea of where they were, I don't even know the name of half of this bunch... ' I thought as I went to the sauna to see if I could get some private discussion and find something out. 'It is clearly someone who knows what he is doing, so it couldn't be the captain, and probably none of them drunk bastards at the bar... maybe its the priest? what was his name? He have kept a low profile....'

Is it drafty in here? (snip snip snip) "Ah my hair!" I quickly spin around quickly and my $300 glasses fall off, and I see some weirdo with a pair of scissors.

"Oh, that's so much better," He says to me.

"You snuck up behind me and cut off my hair, who does that?"

"Trust me, I did you a favor."

I catch my reflection in a mirror, damn he's right, it does look better. Well it's still weird sneak up to people and cut their hair off like that, wait where are my glasses? (CRUNCH) "My glasses! Look what you made me do! Who's going to pay for these?"

"Those tacky things, you would have been better off with a squid on your face," says KS.

Who does this guy think he is? I got to find the ships director and complain about my glasses and my missing records.

i step out of my room which i haven't left for about a week. "geez, i never knew i could be so seasick..."
i walk slowly towards the main stairwell.

''where would all the other people on this ship be? perhaps in the casino, throwing their souls to the devil! ha ha, man that sounded really like a Priest. oh wait, i am one.

I entered the casino, and i walked towards my roommate, Huckbuck the celeb.

"Hi there, i'm sorry i was'nt really there last week, i hope my vomiting didn't keep you awake at night. did anything interesting happened this last week? because i spend last week at the bathroom!"

Huck told me there was a murder and that they threw the killer overboard

"Murder!? MURDER YOU SAY!? Jesus flipping chr.... erhhh, i mean, good heavens!"

I'm a little shakier than usual as I serve the drinks, suddenly the tips didn't seem so good and the ability to walk out of the building at a moments notice was a lot more attractive.  Why couldn't I have just gotten work in a regular bar?  "You know, I never actually expected people to go through with dumping anyone..."

After returning to my duties I was rather refreshed, invigorated, motivated so that I felt I was confident to help Gauphastus with the job.

"Boy, I probably shouldn't be doing this. The other mechanic is rather slow but maybe he'll pick up the pace if I do this with one hand."

'This world is going to hell if the priest need a new start', I thought to myself as we started walking. "Well, if you had met him you would understand, it was he who decleared the martial law. Besides when he heard about the murder he didn't seem to be affected at all from what I have heard."

Gec, Yossi and Gauph talked about what plan they should take to make the repairs.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20Two/snapshot_d513bcdc_d5345e54.jpg)
Gec got to work right away, deciding that he really would fix the engines with one hand. While working on the right rear flux-capacitor, he knocked a bucket of grease over and it spilled onto an exposed circuit board.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20Two/snapshot_d513bcdc_f534b421.jpg)
Yossi quickly cleaned up the mess, cursing under his breath, and was pleasantly surprised when nothing seemed to go wrong and he found something he was missing. Shrugging it off, he went back to work.

Meanwhile, on the upper decks, Minnie Riperton's "Lovin' You" began playing, and would continue to play for quite some time.

"Yes, this could be very useful in the future..."

Arrives at the door of his room and opens it slowly so that the roommate will not wake up.

*Walks up to the bed. Once there, he bends down, takes out the object from his pocket, and places it among the innermost pieces of underwear in the pile*

"I will have to make sure to fold all this and place it in a basket later today. I need to sleep now. All the drama has made me exhausted. Really, what kind of idiots throw the captain off the ship they are in."

*Gets up and quietly changes into something more comfortable for sleeping. Then slips into the bed, seeking the protection of the covers. The last thing he sees before he closes his eyes and dozes into restless sleep are the pristine whites of his roommate's clothes*

Dr. Inkling was just setting the price with his 'patient' when someone barged into his office.

"Yes, these should take care of your condition in a few days," he said without missing a beat.  Just take it easy on the buffet for a while."

"You know, there is such a thing as doctor/patient confidentiality," Inkling said in an irritated tone.  "I deal with any and all medical problems on this ship, if you catch my drift.  So I'd appreciate it if you would knock first.  But, you're already here, how can I help you?"

"Dr. Inkling, do you happen to have anything I could use to make one of these?" I said as I pointed at the piece of paper I was holding in my left hand. "With this we might be able to narrow down the suspects."

"If you wish, I'd pay for it full. We can't let this pointless lynching go on like this."

Maybe if I'd been a little calmer, but it's rather hard to stay calm in a situation like this.
I guess I'll try talking to the purser in the morning.  Hopefully, he'll be a little bit more helpful.'


*Looks around room, not feeling particularly safe*

'Might as well try to feel secure, so I can sleep.'

Slarti proceeds to put the do not disturb sign on the door and locks it.  He then tries to move some furniture in front of it  before he remembers everything's bolted down because he's on a ship.  He does the next best thing and moves his old steamer trunk in front of the door.

*Looking at his effort disappointingly*

"Ah, to Hell with it."

Day 3

Met woke up and decided he better get involved in the investigation. He went to find Durgon so he could get briefed on what he knew. He was nervous but he took a deep breath and walked down to the cops room.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20three/snapshot_d513bcdc_1535692e.jpg)
In the morning, Met knocked on the door to room E12. There was no answer so he entered using a master key.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20three/snapshot_d513bcdc_f5356969.jpg)
There was no answer because Durgon was laying on the floor. Dead! A box of pastry lay next to him.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20three/snapshot_d513bcdc_153569a1.jpg)
Met burst into tears, not so much because he was dead but because he had no idea what to do.

The First Mate who was temporarily in charge, wanted things on the ship to run as normal. No sense in getting everyone upset. Therefore, the daily paper was printed up and in the mailbox as usual.

i hope nobody will confront me with the things i said/did last 2 days, because i really need a fresh new start!
ehm, how am i going to do this? Ah, thats it! i'll pretend like nothing happened!

               As I woke up, I went straight to the bathroom to wash my face. As I reached towards my bag, I realized that I forgot to block the door last night. Stupid! Forgot to lock the door!

               "Oh well, at least I'm fine.", I said to myself, trying to calm my nerves. "Time to get to the bottom of this."

               After taking a very quick shower, I planned to go straight to the lobby to contact the ship's security. Just as I was about to go up the stairs, I realized that the bodyguard was standing in the room that just passed by. Something seemed to be wrong. Looking back, I noticed that he was somehow a bit pale. Wanting to find out the reason why, I went up to him. But before I could say a single word, my eyes caught what was lying on the floor. A police officer, dead. "Oh my-..."

               "Another one..." Poor guy.

               Before I could turn around and talk to the officer, I realized something was lying on the floor next to the body. "Pastries..."

"Ugh, crap... Oh yeah, I have more in my room!"

I set off towards the rooms, but a large crowd had formed outside one. At my arrival many people began to jeer and shout at me.

"A sushi knife killed one, and a box of pastries was beside this body! It had to have been you!"

"No!" I desperately cried.

I half stepped half fell out of bed and stood up. Too quickly it seemed, and for a second or two I was reeling with headrush.

I opened the door.

"Shut up!" I yelled at the mob standing in the doorway opposite, turned and slammed the door shut.

I took a couple of ibuprofen and got back into bed, pulling the pillow over my head.

"geez, first a huge hangover and now another murder!? This cruise is going downhill every day!"

"damnit, they might freak out soon and i might be asked to calm them down using religion or something! That will end up in disaster!

I couldn't sleep like this. I got up and cleaned my teeth.

Cupcakes

I looked at myself in the mirror in blurry vision. Still looking good. I stepped into the shower.

Cupcakes. Mob. Murder Weapon.

Very slowly things fell into place in my head.

"Holy s***!"

I ran outside wearing nothing but a towel.

After gathering information from various crew members of today's events, I make my way to the crowd. I avoid looking at the dead body and listen in on the argument.

Seeing that the chef was getting a lot of stink eye from everyone, I only felt pity at his sincere expression of despair and fear. I wasn't too convinced it was him, his demeanor merited no reason to persecute him.

I think the real murderer would be too smart for these fools. He's obviously trying to turn everyone against each other.

I then turn around in response to Supraman's interjection and nearly shriek at his half nudity.

I wake up with another headache. I pop a couple asprin, but my head is still pounding, no wait there noise coming from the hall. I get dressed and walk into the hallway. Another murder, you have to be kidding me. I don't know who died but it has something to do with cupcakes, and that twit who cut my hair, Krakow Sam is pointing the blame onto the chef and preacher man is trying to clam everyone down

"I'm sorry there father but i can't let this sit quietly, if anyone here is suspicious of murder it would be snippy over there," I say pointing at Krakow Sam. "You snuck up behind me and cut my hair, who's to say you didn't sneak into these peoples rooms and kill them!"

"Holy Sloth... what the f... I've had enough of this murder stuff. In any case, someone has to fix the engines. If I'm needed, I'll be there."

As I leave, I stop by the counter and purchase a new lighter. Going outside, I take my old lighter from my pocket and walk along with my hand on the railing. Checking behind myself, I subtly drop the charred lighter overboard. As I see it go underwater, I enter the door nearest the stairwell and take myself to the engine room.

So another murder... I thought to myself as I dressed.

This time it was some other guy I didn't know. And he was just across the hall from me.

My satellite phone rang. It was one of those inept little assistants of mine. They had to do the tiniest little filing job to prepare for a case, yet muck it up. This could take hours to sort out. And the internet was out for the day.

Ah well. I headed to the bar.

Dr. Inkling took the piece of paper from Yuu and said he would see what he could come up with, then escorted him and Bodhi out of his office and went to bed.

He was woken the next morning by voices outside his room talking about another murder.

*Rushes to the room, shoving everyone out of the way*

"Move it, Ship Doctor coming through!"

*Checks the body for vital signs*

"Yep, he's dead.  Who found the body?  Did you check to see if he was passed out or in a coma, or did you just run around screaming murder?"

*Sighs deeply before taking some of the 'medicine' the doctor gave him then grabs the daily sail to check todays events *

Aaaah, nothing calms the nerves better then this stuff, now what do i want to do today

6:00 am breakfast on the pool deck
9:00 am head to the gift shop and get a new shirt, while in the area try to get an appointment with the hairdresser for later today
10:00 am join the training on the deck
12:00 Remember lunch

Aggh! Ovi thought, how did I get up here?

The ground felt like glass beneath his feet; one wrong step and he would tumble down to the bottom of the sea. He tried his best to get back to the elevator, but he was having trouble breathing.

Whoa, I gotta get outta here... the boat is spinning, he thought.

He started to hyperventilate and his legs turned to rubber. Then everything went black; he had fainted.

I sighed, I really didn't want to do this.  I may be more interested in tips than drinks, and being a bartender tended to get you down after a few dozen sad sacks spilt their life stories all over you, but it's what I've always done.  Right now every instinct I had was screaming that this would go over badly, but I had no choice.

As I tended the coffee bar (cause and cure of hangovers, I thought with very little satisfaction), I saw the first mate approaching.  "I need to talk about something," I said as he ordered.  "We'll never make it off this boat alive if everyone goes to bed sloshed, and people always come to me more when thing get tougher.  I..."  My bartender instincts once again rebelled against what I was about to do.  "I think we should close the bar after nine or so."  My best tipping hours, I thought bitterly.

While folding clothes (he only agreed to do it for the opportunity to handle more underwear), Lual fought the compulsion of stealing more underwear by thinking back to the pile that was now neatly arranged in a basket under his bed. He had also kept himself from taking the underwear from the few rooms he had cleaned that morning.

"I can't steal any of these, at least not yet. If I do, it will be really obvious who it was. I'm the only one doing this, after all... But it would be so easy to take them; there is no one around. They might not even notice that just a couple more are missing... But I can't run that risk. If they find out it's me, I might lose..."

His thoughts were suddenly interrupted by some garbled message about the killer coming from a higher deck. Curious, Lual walked out of the Laundry Room for a moment and started heading upstairs. On the way, though, he heard two people talking about a murder; another murder.

"For the size of this boat, news move very fast. It's not too unexpected, though, considering the impressive management (or at least what's left of it)... Ugh, I guess this murder business will be a daily thing, then? Who knows what these idiots are doing to get killed."

Lual returned to working on the laundry. He handled the clothes more roughly than he should have.

After Neoteric had taken his place in the Laundry Room, Lual decided to satisfy his curiosity by going to the room in which the murder had occurred.

The large crowd that had been present earlier at the door of the room had thinned out.  When he looked inside, he was puzzled by the lack of excessive gore that had been present on the previous murder. He only saw the crumpled body and the box of pastries by its side.

"Could it be that those pastries were poisoned?", he said softly to no one in particular.

"If they are, then the killer is one of the people working in the kitchen..."

Even though he had little interest on what happened to the passengers of the cruise, he found this mystery compelling enough to fill his time for the rest of the day. It would help take his mind off the underwear he was not able to take.

I needed to talk to Celdur, so I waited after he was done with his workout. While I waited I talked to the bearded fellow and checked out that cute blond in her swimsuit as she bounced around during the workout. I went up to him after he was done.

"Excuse me Mr. Celdur, I know there are more pressing matters with the murderer running around, but I've had stuff stolen from me and that Barber KS cut my hair without me knowing it, yeah it looks nice but that's not the point. Is anyone going to do anything about these problems?"

'That would be great, get killed on my birthday...' I thought to myself and suddenly felt very lonely, noone had congratulated me today, and I have been getting no presents. I felt like crying.

I raised my hands and kept talking and preaching to the people.

"Dont let this happen to you! If you want to live Join the Religion of the Holy Sloths! It will make your life easier and better even if you still have a few hours to live because some psycho is on a killing spree on a cruiseship!"

i felt like nobody was really interested in my speech so i turned it to a different subject

"Everybody has his little problems, Or things he does because he's got no other choise. Everybody tries to keep these things low and hidden so that nobody else gets to know of these things. But it doesn't always work"

I let my eyes fall upon the photographer and raised my voice a little more.

''We must not forget, even if we get to know the personal problem of somebody, that they are persons as well, AND YOU HAVE YOUR OWN THINGS THAT MAKE YOU A LITTLE WEIRD!!!!"

i noticed i was shouting and my face went angry-red to ashamed-red

"so let's not forget to let people in their dignity EVEN if there's a life or death situation."

i looked a littlebit angry at the photographer while i walked off to my room

"I hope he understanded what i was trying to say. If he doesn't respond in 2 days or so, i'll have to take drastic measures and i'll confront him.

"that is if we find the murderer and we'll live another 2 days....

"but first, lets make get more people on the good side: The Holy Sloth side! hmmm, what about hanging some posters throughout the ship?.... hmmmm

Post by: Slartibartfast on May 14, 2008, 08:47:08 am
Slarti woke up tired that morning.  He had only managed to sleep for a few hours.

After getting ready, he moved his steamer trunk out of the way to find a copy of the Daily Sail slid underneath it.

'Let's see if there's anything worth doing.  Chess at 3 seems good.'

Reading to the announcements Slarti found something that troubled him.

'The engines and the internet are both broken!  How much more screwed can we get?'

After grumbling for a bit, Slarti made his way to the coffee bar in the hopes some java would jolt him awake.

He had just gotten his mocha latte when the security guard ran up to the firstmate - acting captain now - and told him about another murder.
A police officer had been killed in his room and some pastries were near the body.

'I wonder if by pastries he means doughnuts?'

Hungry and trying to soak in this information, Slarti made his way to the breakfast bar on the pool deck.
There seemed to be a revival of some sort happening on the other end of the deck.  

'Did he just say "Holy Sloth"?  Na, I must have misheard him.
 
Slarti sat down next to a man wearing a Santa hat.  Oddly, this did not seem out of place to Slarti, it merely added to the surrealism of the moment.
They had a casual chat; Slarti tried to keep up his end of the conversation, but he was absorbed with his own thoughts.
Luckily, after Santa had compared their current situation to a bad horror movie, he mostly complained about how little luck he was having with the ladies.
Simple "Ain't that the truth" and "I know the feeling" were enough to maintain his end.

In Slarti's mind he was more concerned with the facts of the murders.
'First a sushi knife and now pastries -- I guess they were poisoned.  Circumstantial evidence seems to point to the chef.  I wonder if there's any corroborating evidence?
There's no rule that says a murderer has to be a genuis -- Occam's razor and whatnot.  But it does raise the question, if the chef isn't the murderer who would want to frame him?'


As he was sitting there, this broke the monatony of his thoughts:
"Excuse me Mr. Celdur, I know there are more pressing matters with the murderer running around, but I've had stuff stolen from me and that Barber KS cut my hair without me knowing it, yeah it looks nice but that's not the point. Is anyone going to do anything about these problems?"
Slarti began to turn saying, "I thought the hairdresser's name was Anou Mawi?" only to find a skulking man with a pair of scissors less than a foot away.

"HOLY ****!", as he reflexively tried to move away.

I was up on deck, enjoying the sunshine, when I noticed the hairdresser menacingly approaching another man, brandishing his scissors.

"Hey, stop right there!" I grabbed the hairdresser's scissors.

"I knew it! First you tried to pin the murder on me, and now I catch you looking for your next victim! Considering you're the only other one with sharp objects at his disposal on board, I'm not surprised!

"what a fantastic idea of me to add the link to the site on the poster. when the internet's put back online on this ship, Some people might even visit the site!"

"oh yeah, I'm so good, this might even work! The Holy Sloths will spread all over the world, if i can convert all these important people on this ship!"

I grabbed a coffee and headed to the computer room. It seemed I would be there for a while. My assistants had managed to lose most of the files for my next case. Coincidently this was against Danger Mouse. Christ I can't stand her. I looked the the side and saw a poster of some sloth with a halo.

Church of the holy sloths. Bloody hell, I hope that is a joke. I looked it up for a laugh. It turned out it wasn't.

Anyway, down to work.

Just as I began retyping the many pages of text I recalled seeing a pile of files in her room the night before.

What if somehow her files were to be misplaced as well? I grinned.

I finished off my coffee and headed down to E3.

Leaving the room, I noticed a rack full of business cards.

Why not?

I pulled a card from my pocket and put it in the rack.

As Ovi sat and read the Daily Sail, his face went pale.

Quote
... Scrab Booking fun in the show room
2:00 pm Slot tournament: Free entry and win $500
3:00 pm Chess tournament in the library...

Free entry, He thought. I guess it wouldn't hurt to go, right? I can't possible lose anything, can I?

"Only everything you've been working on these last few months," said his other shoulder.

Well, I don't have to use any of the money I win for gambling, I can promise to use it on something else.

"But you won't."

That's what I'll do, I'll use the money for something else, then it's okay if I gamble.

"You're making the same mistake again."

But by this point he couldn't hear his other shoulder anymore, he had made up his mind. He read over the daily sail again to see if there was anything else of interest.

"Hahaha!" he chortled out loud. Whoever typed this spelled "Scrap" wrong!

And with this he got up and headed to the casino.

"Who do I think it was?"  I reply to Martyk, "well, not the chef, I've sailed with the guy before and he seems alright, and no one would be stupid enough to leave clues like those behind.  Besides, the kitchen ain't exactly fort Knox, no security, no lock, and it's up on the passenger decks.  Anyone could walk in and swipe a knife, and it takes, what, half an hour tops to bake some cupcakes?  With all the poison we keep aboard in case of vermin, not to mention cleaners and stuff you could make in a bathroom sink given the knowhow, poisoned pastries are easy as, well, pie."  I shake my head, "nah, you've gotta go with who was floating around the victims.  Find the guy who ran into both Vivec and Durgon and I bet you'll have your killer."

I reached her room. She wasn't there. Probably still stretching for that Santa bloke.

Perfect.

The door was closed but not locked. I entered the room. There, on the desk, sat a huge pile of files.

I checked it out. It was the right case. Now I just needed to dispose of them. I grabbed them and headed to the upper deck. I threw them from the side of the ship and watched as they fluttered gracefully downwards towards the water.

When the last one had disappeared from view, I headed to the bar. A celebratory champagne is in order.

Ovi made his way to the casino. He carried a life preserver in case he felt dizzy again and fell in the water.

Andrew called a lunch meeting with some of the ship staff.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20three/snapshot_d513bcdc_b5375d14.jpg)
People were waited outside the door for lunch to start. They wouldn't let anyone in until the meeting was over. That was when Krakow made his move. The agitated them even more, they were hungry.

Meanwhile, the vote ended and the angry mob grabbed the chef out of the kitchen and threw him over the back of the boat. With no land in site and sharks in the water below, it is presumed that he is now dead.

I had been running after the mob for 5 minutes, but I couldn't stop them, they threw the chef into the water! "YOU STUPID IGNORANT PROLETARIANS! CAN'T YOU SEE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE? YOU'VE KILLED ANOTHER INOCENT, TOMORROW SOMEONE ELSE WILL BE KILLED AGAIN AND AN OBVIOUS FAKE CLUE WILL MAKE YOU KILL ANOTHER INNOCENT BASTARD! You are playing the murderers game! We shouldn't do what he is expecting, we should act a fool, do stuff randomly, SURPRISE HIM!" I was hoping my speach would affect them.

Once again moping around the back of the engine room, Gauphastus ponders his options.

This is insane.
These people are insane.

I'll write a note to Gec and Yossi.
We've got to keep this hush.



He grabs a clipboard from the console and scrawls on the backside of an old maintenance report --
Guys,
It is my belief that we're all being manipulated. There is someone important aboard this ship and the killer is somehow unable to take him out.
So he's making the rest of us do it.
But not me! No way!
I'm gonna get the hell off this thing before it's down to the three of us. I say to hell with getting this boat moving again. We're getting NOWHERE.
I'd sooner take my chances on a lifeboat or crappily made raft on the open sea than get whacked by some government stooge. I'm too important to die this way.

Yes, I know what you're thinking. I've said it before plenty of times, but this time it's for real. People are dying, and we need to take action.
And by action, I mean get the hell out of here.

If I could get away from the engine room for more than ten minutes at a time to keep watch on that military man we've got on board, I'm certain I could prove it was him.
Tonight, I'll see what I can find out.
If it doesn't pan out, I will begin my preparations with or without you.


Tossing the clipboard back onto the console, he quickly exits the engine room in search of this military man and his mysterious suitcase.

This is ridiculous, what kind of people throw the cook overboard after a meal?
I thought to myself as I headed over to the casino to wait for the tournament to start.
I don't need any money, but this should be fun.
I hope they get this ship moving, or at least the communications up, I need to inform the president of the current status of the package.

Without much of a second thought for the poor Chef who went overboard, the residents of the floating death ship went about the rest of their day, trying to forget the horrible things that were happening.

Fatigued from working on the engine, I begin to analyze the communications tower above the ship's bridge and asses the damage.

Hmm, well this seems different. I don't really see any fried circuits here.

I begin to toy around with the cables and troubleshoot all possible issues.

Doctor Inkling saw the angry mob toss the chef overboard from the other side of the ship.  He was too far away to help, and it was too dangerous, anyways.  He sulked back to his office and took out the piece of paper Yuu had left for him.  He rummaged through his supplies to see if he could find what was needed.  He paused when he opened the drawer of medical tools.  After a second, Inkling slipped a scalpel up his sleeve and went back to his search.

"Great, another staff member..." I said as a quietly drummed my fingers on the main bridge controls. "If things are going as I think they are going then soon the entire ships staff will be in the drink and this ship will be in control of a bunch of irate vacation goers. This cannot continue... I must put my foot down. Two staff members are enough!"

I quickly reached for the intercom microphone on the controls in front of me. As I held the microphone to my close to my lips, I turned the device on and began to speak.

"Greetings and salutations everyone, this is acting ships captain Andrew Ryan. I am eager to inform you of some recent changes I have made involving policy on board this vessel. First off, any and all ships staff is exempt from accusation and from being thrown overboard for the time being due to this ship being dangerously low on crew members. Secondly, due to said lack of crew members, most notably a cook, I officially announce we will be having a cooking contest aboard the ship at 9:00 PM tommarrow night to determine who will be the ships new chef. Participation in this event will be mandatory for every passanger, excluding crew members and VIPs. That is all for announcements right now. Good luck at the contest and may you all have a pleasent time aboard the SS Glicker."

I then turned off the microphone and placed it back on the bridge control. Suddenly I realised something.

Hey!, I thought, If the captains dead and I'm the captain for the time being, I get to have his cabin! Oh cool, dibs!

I quickly ran off the bridge, jogging for the cabin that was rightfully mine.

When Huckbuck returned to his cabin for his bubble bath, he found that his birthday had not been forgotten. Wine and cake were waiting for him.

The rain had stopped which was good news, the deck party would go on as planned tonight. The rest of the afternoon, people played chess and bingo and then had dinner.

               "I guess its time."

               Slowly, I approached Dr. Inkling's office. I've just heard news of the chef being thrown overboard and I just can't help but feel sorry for the guy. "Stupid passengers... Well, anyway, I'm gonna go ahead to the Doctor's office. I hope he has what I need." Some Iodine would be perfect. And some clear tape. Yup, that'd be nice.

               "Hey, Doc? Are you ready?", I said as I entered his office. I closed the door behind me and locked it, making sure no one eavesdrops on us. "Doctor, if you can, take along something that we might use to defend ourselves. Just in case he catches on to us."

Ok, maybe occasionally his meat was a bit chewy. But he didn't deserve that.

The lawyer in me wanted to try and help with these investigations, but heck, I was on holiday. I would make the most of it.

I'm sitting on my bed inside my room. It's getting dark outside. I have heard about there being another murder and someone getting tossed overboard. Again.

When I voted for the captain I was hoping that it would be him that would be counting the votes. And that maybe he would realise the madness of the situation and do the right thing if enough people voted for him. But instead he was thrown off the ship and now it's just getting worse every day... Who are they going after next? I didn't come to this cruise to die...

I dig up my drawing equipment from my bag. The canvas has gotten a bit wrinkly under the clothes and has a light stench of scotch.

This will be my final piece... Maybe my work will finally be worth something after I die. My whole life I've been neglected as a spoiled kid with no real talent, but this will be great. This one comes from the heart...

I pick up my paint brush and draw the first line.

Ghosts, indeed! As if life wasn't painful enough already without having to worry about ghosts as well. Know what? Getting ready for the show can wait for just a bit. The rain has stopped, I am going to get some sea air, good for the voice.

Once outside, SpaceOddity went through her usual voice practice. Feeling the cold sea air reaching her diaphragm she felt a bit more alive than she had over the last couple of days.

Why can't I feel like this all the time?

She sighed, and went inside.

I was halfway through the cake when the fire alarm rang. All my happyness about still beeing reminded dissapeared and I thought; 'Here we go again. I'm tired of this!' The sprinklers went on inside my room for some reason and what was left of my birthday cake was now all over the floor in a white goey puddle. As I left the room feeling more depressed then I had felt in a long time some person ran straight into me. "Damn!" I exclaimed while trying to keep up on my feet, who comes running in the hallway like this?

The fire was soon contained but not before it had backed up into the toilet system and damaged the main vacuum flushing apparatus. None of the toilets on the ship would flush now. The papers in the trash can that caught of fire were scooped up to be looked over later.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20three/snapshot_d513bcdc_f5361266.jpg)
The show began on time and Danzik made his guest appearance. He performed his magic with the help of SpaceOddity as an assistant. With the run of murders on the ship, she drew the line at being sawed in half. She wasn't trusting anyone at this point.

After the show Slarti and Yuu headed to the internet room to check their email. Yuu wrote a long email to his friend about the events that were happening. "I don't know if I'll live long enough to get off this ship alive, but I need to tell you something just in case I do."

The hours passed and, after some brief distractions, it was time for the deck party to begin. A tense atmosphere filled the air, everybody was a suspect and nobody was willing to let another linger out of sight for very long. Despite this though, the passengers and crew alike tried their best to have a good time. The fire in the restroom had since been cleaned up and the investigation yielded nothing of interest. Of course no investigation was perfect, a fact that the remaining people on board the S.S. Glicker soon found out.

As the party went on, a conspicuous bit of paper was sighted floating lazily in the swimming pool.

After retrieving the net I barely notice how burnt up the note was. I was curious.

"Hey, that note looks pretty burnt up. Was that yours? I think it may have come from the pile that caught on fire in one of the restrooms."

I bring it out of the water as both Yuu and I inspect the writing. Shivers began to go down my spine as I realize what the contents of the letter refer to.

               I paused for a moment, figuring out a way the note could be used to help solve the case. "Any chance I could rig up a meeting with everyone on board the ship?", I asked Gec. "We might also need an ink pad, some pens and some clear bond paper."

I thought carefully about telling the others.

I was in my room, laying on my now dry bed thinking about everything that had happened on this ship. 'I wonder if the murderer follows a pattern? They always talk about patterns in thoose crime shows...' I thought and went to discuss the matter with someone. Anyone.

Again, here I was, leaving her room in the early hours of the morning. This holiday seemed to be following a certain pattern...

I saw a bloke sneak into that room the guy was killed in on the first night.

Weird

Screw it, I wasn't going to be doing anything related to crime fighting in the slightest. It's a bloody holiday

I went back up to the pool deck and sat down at the bar.

I quickly make my way into a supply closet and closed the door behind me making sure the coast was clear. I then carefully try to transcribe any legible words on the note. Folding it into my pocket I take it into my quarters and kept the original note hidden safely. I take my writing and try to fill in the missing words in my room.

my back was just destroyed after a whole day of spreading flyers and posters. I walked into my room, brushed my teeth and dook a deep dive into my bed.

As the day's events wind down, I decide to take a walk on the outside of the ship. I see one of the Holy Sloth posters.

What a pushy man...

Pulling out my lighter, I set the poster on fire and watch it as it cleanly burns off the wall, leaving only a burn mark in the shape of the former poster. Smiling to myself, I continue my walk.

Lual was rearranging things in his room, he had it all to himself now, after all.

"He was actually a pretty nice roommate, though his accent got on my nerves. Oh well," he thought as he folded the underwear that Alwayswatching had left in his drawer, preparing it to be added to The Pile. After that was done, he locked his door and started walking to the party at the Pool Deck.

As he walked, he thought about the piece of paper in his pocket. "Why would that guy give me his room number? What was his name... Celdur. He told me he would be there at..." At that moment, Lual noticed someone walking towards him. It was Huckbuck.

The deck party was a little too much for Great Distance and she needed some quieter time to herself. She was feeling creative tonight.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20three/snapshot_351a9e28_b53b38b1.jpg)
Meanwhile down in the casino, a high stakes poker game was starting.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20three/snapshot_351a9e28_553b37db.jpg)
Up on deck, Slarti took a break from dancing to get something to eat and was joined by Gorman who had some curiosities of his own.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20three/snapshot_351a9e28_b53b3797.jpg)
Restless, Huckbuck left his room.

Things were not going well. Ovi was out of money and had started to borrow money from the house to make his bets.

I just need to go a little longer until my luck comes back, he thought. He was clearly unsettled in his mannerisms and anyone paying any attention could probably pick up on it easily. By this point he had borrowed almost five hundred dollars, and most normal people would have called it quits long before.

Nervously, he looked at his hand: a pair of threes, a five, a ten and a jack.

This is not good

After passing Huckbuck in the hall, Lual snuck inside room, careful not to wake Xeno.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20three/snapshot_d513bcdc_d53b40b1.jpg)
He quietly took the underwear and left.

It was now the wee hours of the morning and the party was finally breaking up.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20three/snapshot_351a9e28_b53b3d65.jpg)
Before retiring, the General thought he'd have a quick talk with the First Mate and see if he had any news.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20three/snapshot_351a9e28_953b3dc1.jpg)

When Lego stopped playing, he realized his hair was gone!!! He had seen that sneak barber hanging around but had been so involved in the music, he didn't feel a thing.

Yossi left the party on his way to the lobby.

He joined Danzik and Slarti for a very late snack and some conversation.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20three/snapshot_d513bcdc_f5376700.jpg)
With the party over, the deck was quiet again and Andrew took a quick walk around to make sure things were secure.

An hour later, Gec, walked past the pool after finally fixing the toilet system and found a horrible site!

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20three/muder3.jpg)
The First mate was in the pool and not moving. Floating along side the body was the missing records from the Santa.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20three/snapshot_d513bcdc_55376b9b.jpg)
Gec fished him out of the pool with the skimmer and stood there in shock and cried.

The time is now 4:00 am.

Dr. Inkling was pulled out of bed and he staggered up to the pool.  For once, he had been told of the accident soon after the fact.  He shoved the ship mechanic out of the way and checked the body of the first mate.  It was too late for CPR.

"It looks like he was electrocuted," Inkling sighed.  "Carefully fish anything you can find out of the pool."

"hmm..."

"This man is dead alright."

"Oh but the records. But were they left behind by the killer or was the first mate in possession of them when he was killed?"

Flamester was near the captains deck, which was right above the pool.
After watching the Dr come by and do a short inspection,and seeing that other go come along he decided to go down to the pool as well.
'Alright, the captain is dead, the first mate is dead, and that leaves the highest ranking offical.'
"So much for a relaxing cruise." He said after paying his respects to the nearly departed.

Dr. Inkling's face turned red at Met's observations.  He was about to let him have it, but held his tongue.

"Yes.  Yes, he is dead.  Brilliant observation, thank you."

He rubbed his temples and sighed.

"I can't do anything here.  If it's ok with you guys, I'm going to go get some coffee.  There's no way I'll be able to go back to sleep."

As I was looking for some nice person to speak with I passed that cleaner guy, but he didn't look like he was up for a chat, so I continued along to hall and decided to go up to the deck to see if the party was still on, I had no idea what the clock was. I meet that guy I have heard been referd to as Cobra, he looks very troubled and ignores me totally. 'He always seems to be in a hurry somewhere, what if he is the murderer?' I think as I walk out on the deck and sees a crowd of people. 'DAMN! Another day, another crowd, another murder.' I could just stand there starring infront of me, everything felt hopeless.

I decided to take a stroll around the pool deck to clear my head. The ships doctor and another crew member were stood together, and on the floor was...

Eugh. Another day, another death.

               "Oh, man! My back back hurts like heck! I must have slept in...", I murmured. "Wait! The evidence!"

               It was already morning. After the party, I went straight to the scene of the first crime. Good thing the place hasn't been cleaned since that day. If they did, who knows how we'll find the killer. Time to show them what I found."

               Making my way up to the pool deck, hoping to have a talk with the new captain, I noticed some people gathering around the deck's pool. "What's happening, Gec?", I asked him, as I walked towards the pool. Little did I know what I would find lying by the side. "Oh my-!"

               It was already too late for the captain. "The fifth one..."

               "Doc! I've got it! That thing you gave me worked! Now we just have to call on all the crew and passengers."

               "EVERYONE, LISTEN UP!", I said to the crowd that gathered around the pool. Once I finally got their attention I began to speak. "I have here with me evidence that might point us to the real identity of the ship's killer! If we can hold a meeting for all the crew and passengers in the theater, we can finally find out who the real killer is!"

I allowed Yuu to lead the investigation, I thought it was much too dangerous to let anyone know I was involved. Based on the note we found I decided to do my own research privately. If anything should happen to Yuu I can continue the investigation in secrecy. Until then I paused my research so that I may fix the toilets. I don't think anyone has been able to use the bathroom for a couple of days now. I don't even want to know how they plan to take care of their business until then.

               "I have here multiple samples of the fingerprints left behind in the murder scene. Now, as all of you may know, fingerprints are unique to every single individual. By analyzing this and comparing it with everyone's fingerprints, we'll find out exactly who did it. If we use the equipment in the theater, we could all compare each other's fingerprints with the ones I've gathered in the murder scene. If anyone has any second doubts about the information I've gathered, we can just collect new data from the second murder scene."

               I take off my glasses and clean it with my handkerchief before carrying on.

               "So, shall we all go to the theater?"

               Well, I guess things are doing fine here. I hope Gec brings the note when he finishes his part of the investigation.

"Sounds good, as the unfortunate new captain of this ship I say we will refrain from throwing people over board, infact, when we get a match we won't throw the person overboard like savages and risk killing a innocent person because of a mismatched fingerprint. Instead, we can lock them in their room. If the murders continue then they are innocent and we saved a persons life. If not, then they probably are the killer, or the killer has stopped. If that happens then we can keep them locked up and keep a potential killer from killing people.Either way, no matter what outcome we saved a persons life."

Dawn broke and panic spread. Rumors flew and crazy ideas were thrown about. The scientist was babbling about evidence and fingerprints and wanting a meeting. He was drawing a lot of attention to himself.

The people agreed to the meeting but just to keep the scientist happy.
(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_d513bcdc_153c5a65.jpg)
"Good Morning everyone, thanks for assembling at such short notice. Please welcome our purser who has a few words to say"

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_d53c5efe.jpg)
"Good Morning! As we all know, things are not running smoothly on this ship. The Daily Sail paper will be published later today and we're trying to get some food made for lunch but with the Chef gone, it will just be simple food. Half of the freezer went out last night and we lost half of our meat supply to spoilage. The good news is the toilets are working again, thank you Gec. The engines are still not up to capacity and we are floating at a very slow pace. We've been radioing for help but no one seems to be responding. We have some items reported as stolen last night including some underwear. We hope to catch the thief soon.

Now, please welcome Army General Flamester, our acting Captain."


(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_953c682f.jpg)
"Thank you! After talking to the First Mate last night, we both agreed that if something happened to him, I would become acting Captain. The monkey business needs to stop now and we need to get to work finding this killer. We will not be throwing people overboard anymore, we will be making a brig in the crew department to hold suspects. Now, we have a scientist on board who wants to speak."

The crowd stirred, they didn't want to put people in the brig. Things were becoming more privative and they wanted blood, revenge and justice. Once they voted again, the suspect would indeed be thrown overboard.

One person in particular didn't trust the General, he didn't trust any military at all. Why should we listen to him? He could be killing us all, they train military to kill without leaving a trace.

"Hi everyone, my name is Scienceg.. I mean Yuu, sorry I get nervous speaking. I've been working on an idea and I put together a finger print kit with products off the ship. With this kit we can try to match the fingerprints at the crime scene with the fingerprints of everyone here. I just need you to each come by and give me a sample"

"What did you say your name was? I think you're a liar! We've all been all over this ship, finding fingerprints is not going to give us any help. Besides, you could change the results!  Bah, I say we forget all this, any one of us could be guilty, except me of course." said Slarti

I barge into the backstage area with an envelope containing the original note found in the pool. Seeing as he was the closest person, I hand the envelope to Supraman, seeing as he was walking out.

"Please give this to Yuu. He needs it urgently."

I quickly bolt out as I came and headed to the engine room to continue work.

No one was willing to submit to a fingerprint test, and if no one else was then there is no way I'll be doing one. Last thing I need is to be proven the only innocent guy on the ship, that's a sure fire way to have the killer paint a bullzeye on my back.

Yossitaru had the most votes... he would be the next suspect to go overboard.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_153d92ce.jpg)
He took off running, trying to find a place to hide.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_d513bcdc_f53d8c03.jpg)
The crowd took after him, close on his heels.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_753d992a.jpg)
They finally cornered him in the kitchen, he begged for his life, pleaded that he wasn't the killer.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_753d9995.jpg)
But the people showed no mercy and over the railing he went into the murky water below, now presumed dead with the others.

They should have listened to him for he was not the killer and now they will have the chance to kill again.

The daily paper finally came out and was placed in the mail boxes outside the cabins. With no one to work on the engines, the ship was now floating in the middle of the ocean. The passengers were now coming down with the flu. How much worse can this trip get? Oh please.. do you have to ask?

General Flamester has taken over the Captain of the Ship. With our engine room mechanic thrown overboard, there is no hope of going anywhere. We must float here waiting for help.
Half of the food is gone in the kitchen so we must ration what is left. The flu is running rampant and if you feel sick you should rest in your cabin or contact the ship doctor. We will make every effort to keep you comfortable for the remainder of the cruise until we are rescued. At General Flamester's request, we are imposing a curfew at 1:00 am, all guests must be in their cabins so we can account for everyone.
So here are today's events:

Breakfast at  your leasure: dining room, pool deck or room service
10:00 $500 Bingo in the showroom

Gec climbed into a life boat to think. What was he suppose to do now? He didn't know how to fix an engine, that was Yossi's area of expertise.

The others realized that they still had a killer on the loose. They started to search the kitchen for clues. That seems to be where all of the killing items had come from.

Without the Chef around, the kitchen crew got very sloppy and trash and garbage were piling up everywhere along with some rotting food.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_953d97aa.jpg)
Dirty nasty bugs were showing up and crawling all over the kitchen and getting into the remaining food.

The General was on his way to the kitchen but Gauph wouldn't let him pass. Mistrust was the word of the day for everyone.

He ended up throwing a drink at the General. Being a clean and proper military man, the General could not wear a wet uniform. He returned to his cabin to change and called the Steward to come and clean his suit.

No sooner had I turned to look for the scientist than the mechanic ran past, followed swiftly by a mob. I sighed.

This is just getting ridiculous.

I was about to enter the hall again when my phone rang. Again it was bad news. My next client had gotten drunk whilst on bail and robbed a liquor store. This would take ages to clean up. I turned to head to my room when the mechanic ran up and pressed an envelope into my hands.

"Please give this to Yuu. He needs it urgently." he said, and then ran off.

Who the hell is Yuu? Maybe I should have learned some names.

I opened the envelope. It was some sick note, I guessed from the murderer. Or else a hoax.

No, that mechanic was too serious...

 I put it back in the envelope and headed to my room. I still had my problem to sort out.

The situation was becoming more hopeless. I started to become hysterical, sulking in the life boat. I wasn't intent on leaving, nor was I happy about staying on the boat.

"How am I going to fix the engine? Me and Gauphastus can't do anything. What are we going to do?"

I only hoped that Supraman will give the evidence to Yuu.

The Dentist rather fancied the hairdresser and assumed he felt the same way. I mean, he did go hot tubbing with him. Not much he could do about the murder so he booked another hair appointment first thing in the morning.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_d513bcdc_153d8fcf.jpg)
Jumping back in disgust, Anou informed him that he isn't that kind of hairdresser. Then he walked away leaving Plank devastated with his declaration.

Let's see, I thought as I served drinks, using my spare time to ponder the killings, all the murders have been done with things from the kitchen, so it has to be someone who goes there often.  And the second victim wouldn't have just eaten those cupcakes, would he?  So it has to be someone who could pull off giving them to him without suspicion.  Someone Andrew would trust enough to stop and chat for a moment.  Someone who can go anywhere on the ship, who has an excuse for doing almost anything.  I pause for a moment, as the next realization hits me, it has to be one of the crew.  Not just any crew either, you would hardly accept cupcakes from a mechanic, would you?  No, it has to be one of the waiting staff, or at least someone who runs into passengers pretty often.

I pause again as I realize that things are pointing to a very large cliché up ahead.  It was starting to look like the butler might have actually done it.  At least it narrowed things down.  Lual mabey?  He's always acts strange when he's coming out of a passenger's room.  We should check to see if anything was missing from any of the victim's rooms.  Who else?  Well, this is the first time I've heard of something like this on a cruise, so it might be someone new here.  Didn't MartyK say this was his first time serving on a ship?

While everyone milled around in the kitchen, I head to the bar to have a chat with Neoadept.

"Well," I start off, "The way things are going it looks like I'll be one of the next ones off.  Everyone suspects kitchen staff, making me a prime suspect, failing to realize that these clues are way, way too obvious.  I mean, it's as though the murderer is trying to frame the kitchen staff, right?  Now see, that's why my suspicions over who it is are so strong.  They've been known to do this sort of thing before, and they've proven in the past to have it in for me.  I'm just getting really worried now, I've already had my share of being falsley accused of crimes."

Post by: martyk on May 19, 2008, 06:52:37 pm
"True it does somewhat look like a staff member, but the fact remains that it could very likely be a passenger still.  The kitchen is exactly locked down or anything, and the dining room is open 24/7 with snacks and whatnot.  As for Lual, he has seemed a bit, odd.  I've noticed him skulking about a bit from room to room but frankly, his behaviour looks more like he's stealing things than anything else."

This is insanity, tossing people overboard without even a shred of proof aside from a majority wanting the person tossed....ye gods that feels good

*The daily sail grabbed as he lets himself fall down on the bed to enjoy the feeling of the 'medicine'*

Happy thoughts, I'll let others deal with the deaths as I'll likely go crazy if i think to much about them.

Lets see now, focus on relaxing and fun, what do i want to do

12: Lunch is always good
1: Some training is good so might as well join the Volley ball game
3: I had some luck last time when i was calculating odds so might try again
4: Get some clothes if they have and book a shave and haircut
7-11: It looks like I'll be busy tonight, all of this looks interesting and might even be fun

BFS finally found Yuu and gave him the paper that Gec had handed off earlier.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_153f06fd.jpg)
The off limits areas of the ship no longer seemed off limits. The passengers were insisting of looking at everything.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_553f08fd.jpg)
Everyone was looking for clues and evidence.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_153f09ad.jpg)
While everyone was running around trying to find clues, Danger Mouse and Supraman snuck off to get some alone time. On the way to the room, they discovered that the door to the neighboring room, room E10, was open!

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_f53f09e7.jpg)
Their Spidey senses getting the better of them, they decided to take a quick peek around. They didn't see anything that really caught their interest. Just some records, a painting, a gun... A GUN!? ON THE SHIP?! Panicking slightly, the pair rushed out into the hall and to Mouse's room where they tried to think of some kind of plan.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_b53f0a71.jpg)
They tossed around ideas, they could throw it overboard but what if they needed it? They finally decided to hide it somewhere. Somewhere not too remote yet it would still be hard to find.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_d53f0dfc.jpg)
They decided to hide it in the dressing room. In the bottom of the dresser they pried up the panel and found enough room to lay the gun inside. They put everything back they way they found it.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20four/snapshot_351a9e28_b53f0ea6.jpg)
Satisfied that the gun was hidden, they went back to their room to finish what they started.

So whose gun is it? Well it was in room E10.

I decided to head to the purser, hoping he would know whose room it was.

Still, a nagging doubt remained at the back of my mind. Why had Danger Mouse been so insistent on not throwing the gun overboard?

Searching the crew quarters turned up nothing for me. I have no more of an idea who stole my records and put them on first mate. I surprised I only got a couple stink eyes after that one, after they tossed the cook over board. Why would someone frame the cook then move on to me? The killer must be one of the women, they're the only ones on this ship I've been bothering. There's that cute little blond, but she seems to be hanging around that lawyer guy a lot and I've only said two words to her. Then there's the Preformer chick, she works on the ship so there is a good chance that she knew the cook and possibley have a good reason to frame him. Then there's my lovely Great Distance, I did tell her my room number the night before i noticed my records missing. So it must be one of those two. I should stick them like white on rice.

So wasn't just hearing things, someone had been shot.  I wander the halls aimlessly, talking to myself, contemplating possibilities.

"So, it was a gun this time.  Hopefully the lack of kitchen utensil involved will get some heat off of me at last.  What I'm wondering is what the victim was doing in that room.  He's staff, his room is down below in the staff quarters.  Someone must have conviced him to meet with them in that room.  That other crazy hairdresser perhaps?  Mabey wanting to talk hair with him?  But the gun, where did it come from.  Security, the cop and the military guy would be the only ones I can think of who'd have one.  Hmm.  Either way I stand with conviction behind my belief on who did it."

A gunshot? I made my way to the cabin of the sound.

Logic dictates that it was not in-fact Yuu.

Or is that what he'd want us to think?


"Hey wait a minute.... How come others can have guns?"

I woke up to the news that someone had been shot. My head reeled.

S**t

I ran to the cupboard and pulled up the board. The gun was gone.

Double s**t

There had only been two people that had known where the gun was hidden. Me and Dangermouse.

I was pretty sure it wasn't me.

But how could it have been Dangermouse? We were together on the first few nights when people were killed...

Maybe somebody saw us put the gun in the cupboard...

Or maybe somebody stumbled upon it. Space Oddity must be in and out of this cupboard all day...


The question of whose gun it was originally still burned. I headed to the purser.

"Excuse me, who was staying in room E10?"

               So now the culprit's trying to get me launched overboard... I gotta act fast.

               "If only they'd accepted my offer earlier, we would've found the culprit then and there.", I sighed. I then went to my room after hearing of what happened to Plank. Apparently, he was shot in the head with a gun, probably a 9mm or something similar. Now who would have possession of a gun? The General? The Lawyer? Huckbuck? Or maybe someone else...

               "Thats it!", I almost yelled. I sprang out of my room and headed straight for security. Finally, a lead. I just hope they value their safety more than their privacy.

I try to get the attention of as many people as possible. I don't care if that makes me a suspect.

"Everyone! Something terrible has happened! The murderer, or maybe an accomplice of his, has stolen my scissors! I propose a shipwide search for these vital tolls because... uh... whoever has them in his cabin MUST be the murderer, at least judging by the patterns we've observed in the previous murders. An item goes missing, then someone uses it to kill somone. Come on! Lets go find the scissors, and the murderer!"

I run off to start searching the place from top to bottom.

I headed to the bar to get a drink and think things over. I thought back to the conversation I'd had with the purser.

"I'm not supposed to give out that kind of info. But since there's been a bit too many murders for my liking, and I assume you want to solve it as much as I do, I'll make an exception. Room E10 was booked by Cobra. Good luck finding the murderer!"

Post by: Slartibartfast on May 28, 2008, 02:38:28 pm
When Slarti woke up he didn't feel very good.  He had eaten way too much at dinner last night and it had given him horrible indigestion.  It wasn't so much that the food was worth eating -- it wasn't -- it was just the thought at the rate things were going, the people left may have to resort to eating the "guilty party" of the day instead of throwing them overboard.  Trying to pack on a few extra pounds now, to stave off the last taboo later, had seemed like a good a idea.

Slarti got ready for the day, trying to ready himself for whatever craziness would greet him upon opening the door.

He was worried when he did not find a copy of The Daily Sail under his steamer trunk.  Had the cruise director been killed?

He slowly opened the door and peeked out, expecting the usually crowd of vultures crowding around a dead body, but there weren't any on Inkling deck this morning.

He made his way to the breakfast bar, casually listening for the gruesome details of murder that passed for gossip on this dreadful cruise.

By the time he had finished eating his reconstituted powdered eggs and mystery sausage, he had learned the basic details of the murder of the day.

A man named Plank of Wood, a dentist by trade, had been shot through the head.  The idea that the murderer had a gun now made Slarti more frightened than before.  No need for all this skulking about killing one person at a time if the murderer could just go on a shooting spree instead.

The time to do something was now, but what?

Not knowing how to fix this problem, getting his affairs in order seemed like something to get his mind off it.

He made his way down to the computer lab in the library and sent off some emails.

This expedition isn't going very well.  There have been numerous mechanical failures and a few minor accidents.  The communications gear is acting erratically so we're drawing straws to determine in what order we get to use it when it's working.  I got it today, but it will cycle through the whole crew before I get to use it again so it might be awhile before I get to write again.  I'm not sure how this will effect the schedule.  I'm hoping they'll just send another ship, but knowing the cheapskates I work for we'll more than likely just have to tough it out.  Tell the kids I love them.

Hey sciencegrl,
I've got something really important to tell you.  You won't believe it, hell I don't believe it.  You know that cruise you're on, well when you told me you were planning it a few weeks ago -- I got the impetuous idea that I'd go on it to and try to suprise you.  That's right I'm on the boat.  I did this to fulfill the romantic notions of my schoolboy-esque infatuation with you -- however, as you know, this has become a matter of life and death.  While I still wish to get to know you better, the more pressing matter is having at least one person on this boat we can trust to watch our back.  I still haven't figured out who you are, but I'm sure you must have noticed me wondering around.  I'm the casually dressed, old-looking guy with the white beard.  I'm really not that old, but I went silver haired early and I like the ZZ Top look.  If you want to talk, either come to my room E6 on Inkling or up to me when I'm alone.  Call me Mishkin so I'll know it's you.  Hope to be seeing you soon.
Not a stalker, but a hopeless, stupid and unlucky romantic,
The Rock Man

After getting done, Slarti looked around hoping something else would capture his attention so he wouldn't have to think about his current situation.

'Curch of the Holy Sloths?  WTF?'

Slarti went to the site out of morbid curiosity.  It was that weird preacher from the other day.

This in particular caught his eye:
Quote
Every follower may never lose their patience. they must remain calm every time of the day. lets say someone made pictures of you while doing certain ''things'' and he might blackmail you with them. you must remain calm.

'Holy crap!  Usable information.  I'll have to talk to this Xeno.'

Getting up to leave the library, a large book caught Slarti's eye -- The Sherlock Holmes Collection.

'Oh, what the hell,' he thought to himself as he picked it off the shelf.

'At least I'll have something to read when I try to stay up at night.'

          I look around to see if anyone was watching us and after seeing that no one was around, I look back at Met. "If only we could get some samples from everyone... Please keep this a secret from everyone. We can't let him, or her, suspect anything or this plan might get blown. Please."

Ovi was in terrible shape. He didn't sleep very well last night, and he hadn't been out of his room since he racked up his debt.

Ugh, he thought, debt.

He didn't thinking about it, but his mind kept going back to it.

What am i going to do? No way my family will help me pay off my debt, not after what happened last time.

He had to think of some way to recuperate his funds.

But how?

It was at that exact moment that he remembered the photos.

I just have to make it out of here without him killing me, and I'll be able to sell those photos for a handsome price. Yes, he thought, I just have to keep them safe until I'm off this dang boat...

"...if I survive..." he muttered in addition.

He grumbled to himself silently and and tried to keep his mind off the murders.

As dawn arose on the 5th day of the cruise, the vote was taken and it was a tie. They could not decide for sure who they thought was the killer. As indecision and panic spread, someone shouted "Throw them both overboard" so thats exactly what happened.

Though Danger Mouse ran fast and furious, she still was caught by the mob.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_351a9e28_154ab212.jpg)
Overboard she was thrown. She protested her innocence as she fell and muttered something about a waiter.
*DangerMouse was not the killer*

Yuu thought he would be safe since they already threw the lady over so he tried to hand a paper to Met. "Here, read this"

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_351a9e28_f54ab371.jpg)
He was interrupted by an old man shouting at him. Oh, no.. thats him!! The Rock Man! He's is here.

While the other savages were throwing that girl overboard I brought my Wellson (the real one used in "Coast Ahoy", after playing that role I got to keep the volleyball) to talk to, since everyone either seemed to avoid me or were total maniacs. The priests underwear felt good, I never thought that thight gaylords could be so comfy.

"Gaaaah!"

I heard another one fall overboard. 'This brutality is making me sick...', I thought and decided to play some guitar to try to keep my mind distracted and think about something else.

I was giddy with excitement, what could I say.  She was gone, she was finally gone.  Now even if I was killed by the murderer, it will be worth it.  Even so, I was fairly certain by this point it wasn't her, and almost positive it wasn't that Yuu character, so that raised the question, who.  Frankly my money remained on the military dog running the ship.  First capitain not to be killed.  Slightly suspicious if you ask me.  I pondered these thoughts as I wandered around, taking snack orders and picking up on conversations.

I turned down to find a piece of paper that had been burnt in very inconvenient spots.

So, according to Yuu, I should probably compare this to other cruise passenger's handwriting. I'll search the rooms for any hand-written notes.

I left the deck quietly so as to not draw attention to myself. I made my way down to Gec's room. He was, afterall, the one who happend to find it.

I began searching his belongings.

Strange... he doesn't own any underwear...

Lual had been trying to go by unnoticed for the last couple of days. People had seemed to suspect that it was him stealing the underwear. A bit of time without much underwear going missing would help keep them off him. In the meantime, he had set out on another task that required an amount of stealthiness. To stalk Celdur. He had been following Celdur after he had given him his room number, but he hadn't talked with Celdur since then. Of course, he had still taken a few pieces of underwear from him.

Right now, though, Lual was in his room, finishing rearranging the now fresh-smelling pile of underwear. He put his hand inside the Pile to make sure 'it' was still in place. After being reassured, he placed the Pile under his bed, got out and locked the door. As he started walking down the hallway, he saw Met going into people's rooms.

Why is he going through people's rooms? Could he be trying to frame other people? He does have the access and the authority to do pretty much what he pleases.

 He decided to hide and wait to see what Met was trying to accomplish.

I looked around to check if anyone was listening in.

Should I tell this guy? I guess I do need somebody to speak to about this.

"Ok. Here's the thing. Dangermouse, the one who got thrown overboard today, yeh, well she and I found a gun in his room.

We didn't know what to do with the thing, but with the murderer running about and stuff, we decided to hide it. Then a guy got killed with a gun, and when I checked the hiding place, the gun was gone.

What I wanna know is why that Cobra guy had a gun in the first place."

I sat back and downed my whiskey.

"So, any ideas?"

"That's dangerous information to be waving around like that." I said as I walked up to the bar. "You should probably watch the level of volume you talk with all things considered.  Either way, serves her right."

I shurg and look at Neoadept. "Anyway, I've been thinking, the general is so far the first of the ship's officers not to get killed.  He's in a position of complete control and I'm certain has the resources to do whatever he wants.  Whaddya think?"

Within a few short heartbeats, I swung the door open to find Lual.

Finding that Met had managed to spot him, Lual quickly went to the door, prepared to confront him directly.

"What are you doing in this room?", he asked with a hint of threat in his voice. He moved closer to Met, making him walk backwards. He ignored whatever Met was mumbling about.

As they moved further into the room, Lual took a look around. He wanted to make sure that Met hadn't done anything strange.

"What were you trying to accomplish here?", he asked, more violently than before, when he noticed that the drawers were open and there were a few things out of place.

"Lets put him the the Massage parlor," I say in my most heroic sounding voice. I glance out of the corner of my eye to see if either of the women are watching. We head down to deck 5 and place the barber down on one of the tables. "Now where the hell is the doctor?"

I roll my eyes slightly and shake my head "I know where his office is so i will go and get him, you stay here and make sure he is ok" Taking a deep breath i turn around and heads for the doctors office.

With some luck i can get a bit more medicine from him at the same time

I quickly make my way to the doctors office and knock on the door before stepping inside

I hand the doctor the 50 dollars for the medicine then pops two of them once i have them "Let me take you to the fellow now, he is in the massage parlor"

Thank the gods he had some extra pills, this insanity is making me use more then normal

I Exhale deeply as i feels the pills starting to take effect then make my way back toward the parlor with the doc in tow "Do you have any real ideas of whats happening?"

"What are you doing in this room?"

"What were you trying to accomplish here?"

"Uhh... Just trying to find some evidence."

Now he's being a little demanding. With no cop, who else would be doing all this?

"You can do your share by not compromising an investigation." I said rather pleasantly to try to deter him from interrupting further.

After the exchange in the hallway, they both went their own way. Met had a meeting to run.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_d54d6322.jpg)
Celdur made his way to meeting.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_954d6823.jpg)
Running into Rhodix and Neoadept in a heated debate. "Back to work Neo" he said.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_351a9e28_154d6b25.jpg)
Neo set up the bar and in came the lawyer, with alot on his mind.

Others joined him before going to the meeting in the lobby. The question of "Who was Cobra" was the talk of the day.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_351a9e28_154d71e3.jpg)

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_754d66f6.jpg)
The doctor was standing there, he said everything would be fine and handed him some medication.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_351a9e28_954d6eb2.jpg)
People started gathering in the lobby for Met's meeting about the murders.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_351a9e28_154d725c.jpg)
While the Purser was away from his desk, Gauph decided to look through his records. Maybe there was something about that General in here. It had to be a conspiracy.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_351a9e28_154d7088.jpg)
The General meanwhile was making himself at home in the Captains Quarters. He was pleased to see a nice stock of wine on the shelf.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_954d62ae.jpg)
Gec continued to work on the engines. He was the only one left who made an effort to fix them. It wasn't his area but he was giving it his best shot.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_b54d6255.jpg)
Santa also gave it his best shot with SpaceOddity, she was finally warming up to him and agreed to receive a back rub.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_154d6740.jpg)
Brandon stopped in to get a quick hair cut before going to the security meeting.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_d54d678a.jpg)
What he got was Anou's version of rodeo clown. Anger filled Brandon's head until he felt like exploding!

After a short argument with Cobra, Lual decided that he might as well go to the meeting. First, though, he would place the single piece of underwear that he had managed to take from Cobra on the Pile. He was relieved to have been able to avoid being found out stealing Cobra's underwear:

Cobra: "What are you doing in my room, looking through my stuff?!"
Lual: "I-I'm the Steward. I'm just making sure everything's organized."


At that moment, Lual had decided that it would be better to get out of the room. Cobra was obviously skeptical of that explanation.

The security meeting didn't produce much new evidence. It seemed that no one was talking if they knew anything. Secrets remained intact and mistrust was the word of the day.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_351a9e28_154eb93d.jpg)
Gauph found something interesting in his search and did the "happy dance"

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/paper_01.png)

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_351a9e28_554eb9cb.jpg)
About that time, Didero showed up. Uncertain if he could trust anyone, Gauph played dumb.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_554eb2f6.jpg)
Without much else to do, Anou was busy doing haircuts, makeovers and massages.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_754eb388.jpg)
Unlike Brandon, Great Distanced loved her new hair cut.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_154eb3a2.jpg)
Santa walked by and came in to check her out too. He also liked it.

It was time for the bean bag toss up on the Pool deck.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_b54eb811.jpg)
There were no winners, just a fun time.

Not much into bean bags, Slarti booked himself a massage instead.

Another evening approached. The day was pretty much uneventful as the passengers again kept to themselves.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%205/snapshot_351a9e28_554ebd23.jpg)
Flamester was having food sent to his new cabin, mostly to avoid questions.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%205/snapshot_351a9e28_554ebe36.jpg)
Time for dinner! Even with the food shortage, people were gaining weight. The cooking staff managed to do a good job with the amount of food that was left.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_d54eb7db.jpg)
Still it didn't hurt to check out what was left in the gift shop in larger sizes.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_f54eb781.jpg)
After dinner, Great Distance was walking through the gym when Neoteric called out to her. "Hang on, let me change and I'll be right out"

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_954eb7ae.jpg)

I made my way up to the "Captain's" quarters, knocking on the door as I arrived.

"Room service.  I've got your dinner here sir."

It felt weird waiting on the man whom I felt was one of the most likely candidates for the murder.

Having decided that i can't hide away or try to avoid the murders i pop a few of the pills i got from the doctor before i head down to the computer room and crosses my fingers as i try to connect to my online storage area and download a few programs

Lets see then, is there anything of interest to find on these computers

I rub my hands almost gleefully before i dive into the world of bits and bytes in search of any interesting information, going as far as to try and find out what email programs have been using during this cruise and hack into them

People aren't being very cooperative in providing much help in the investigation. Perhaps I should ask the current captain to see if we can make in mandatory to provide fingerprint and handwriting samples.

I made my way to the Captain's room. Finding martyk waiting impatiently at the door, I went ahead and knocked anyway.

*no answer*

Oh wait, I have a universal key that works on any door to the ship.

I reached into my pocket to retrieve the key, to find it was missing.

Uh oh... Where could it have gone?

Dinner is here, about time.
As I opened the door I found one more person then I was expecting.
Looking at the two people now standing in my open doorway I thought to myself.
Great, what dose he want from me?Maybe if I act nice they will go away.
"Well come in, put my dinner on the table."

Martyk delivered the food and while he was there, another knock at the door and Met showed up. The three of them discussed plans into the night.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%205/snapshot_d513bcdc_5550ab16.jpg)
Bodhi was busy in the computer room.

GD took a turn in the suana, it felt great to be alone and stress free for a bit.

Anou cleaned up the salon after a very busy day.

The 1:00 am curfew arrived and everyone was shooed off to bed. Though some of our ship passengers, didn't stay there.

It was now morning of the 6th day. At first it seemed that everything was going fine until Cobra showed up for his haircut. What a mess he found.
(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%205/snapshot_351a9e28_f54ebf38.jpg)
Anou Mawi was on the floor in a pool of blood, his throat cut by a straight razor.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%205/snapshot_351a9e28_f54ec027.jpg)
Cobra burst into tears, this was horrible, another murder.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%205/snapshot_351a9e28_b54ec0a2.jpg)
He called out to others and they made their way over. Xeno said a prayer for the poor dead Anou.

"We must find this killer before all of us are dead. We must start comparing our alibis and secrets. Who do you think did this and why? We must throw this killer overboard and save ourselves."

I walked through the ship.  Word spread fast.  So another was murdered.  It was expected really.  Despite talking with the captain last night, I wasn't convinced.  He shooed us out of there pretty fast.  And the curfew that he instated would be the perfect oppertunity for him to kill, for whatever insidious government reason he might have.  And then there's the breifcase.  It never leaves his side.  What's he hiding in there?

I depositied my vote before heading off to kitchen duty.

SpaceOddity woke up late. After they had fixed the sound, the show went well-ish. Nothing special...., in fact it was pretty boring. The evening had ended okay though. Stretching and yawning she got up.

I need to find something to spice the days up a bit, she thought. I need to talk to more people.

After she got dressed, she left her cabin to look for company.

"...or get voted upon and DIE!"

It was obvious that again there was a vote. She sighed, soon there'd be no audience left.

Getting up from bed proper i quickly dig up my 'medicine' and pop 3 of them before getting dressed and heading for the computer room and what I've decided is my work currently in trying to solve the murders

I need to remember to ask some crew members later if there is any computers on this ship aside from the library ones

Lovely thing to read right before lunch. At least we'll get some fingerprinting done today. Hopefully before any more murders.

Lunch... lunch...

I started to think to myself. We have plenty of passengers and cruise workers on the voting list... But why are most of the kitchen staff not on the list?

Oh I'm over-thinking it. I need some food.

Post by: Slartibartfast on June 05, 2008, 09:42:26 am
Sitting there playing chess with Neoteric, Slarti was just letting his mind wander trying to figure out who the murderer was. 
The mantra of Sherlock Holmes repeating in his mind, almost taunting him, "When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."  Everything about this trip seemed improbable -- heck, some of the things that have happened seemed impossible to boot.  Then it struck him, if he couldn't figure out who the murderer was, he could at least figure out who couldn't possibly be the murderer.  That would at least save innocents from being thrown off the boat.  It disturbed him that after this vote the lynching body count would be greater than the number of murders.

Suddenly, an idea came to his mind as he looked at Neoteric's name tag.

"Hey, you work in the casino right?  Are there security cameras down there?"

Post by: Neoteric on June 05, 2008, 12:38:53 pm
"Yeah, there are a few cameras. Mainly around the slots, the passengers think its bad form to watch them too closely at the card tables. And I agree."

Neoteric searched through his pockets and pulled out a chain with his keys attached. He looks at it and frowns.

"Ah. I seem to have lost the key, though. The maintenance guys should have a spare, as well as Didero if you see him."

Teric examined the chess board. 3 pawns... Slarti had 4 plus his Queen and a Bishop. He chuckled to himself and grinned at Slarti.

"I'm going to need to get a replacement key, so do you want to go find them? Call it a draw."

I sat at the pool deck bar. Alone. I sighed.

Maybe I'm trying too hard to work out who the murderer is...I've gotta' stop being a recluse, and make the best of it. Hell, I might find something out if I actually talked to people.

I saw a bunch of guys follow that singer into the hot tub. How long had it been since DM was thrown over?

Too long.

With that I changed into my trunks and jumped into the hot tub.

The votes were cast and once again it was a tie. The angry mob agreed to throw two people overboard, surely one of them had to be the killer. They had voted on their gut feelings and with little evidence, they didn't have much else.

The first to go over was Krakow Sam, the barber. "No no no.. " he screamed as he fell over the side. "Find my scissors and you find the killer" were his last words. The splash was loud and he spoke no more.
Krakow Sam was not the killer

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%206/snapshot_351a9e28_555415e3.jpg)
Flamester knew they were coming for him next. Here he was trying to help these people and they turned on him. Well, I'll show them. He put the fingerprint kit that Yuu made into his briefcase. Now they'll never find out who the killer is.

Flamester was grabbed and thrown over the side of the ship, briefcase and all. No one bothered to look inside and see what secrets he held.
Flamester was not the killer.

Cobra and Gauph stood on the bridge looking at everything. Neither knew how to drive a ship or read the instruments. The ship is now floating in the ocean. All engines are shut down.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%206/snapshot_351a9e28_b5542f5e.jpg)
Lual was hanging out in the Captain's room, enjoying the luxury of the suite. "I could get used to this" he thought.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%206/snapshot_351a9e28_555416c3.jpg)
No Captain, no first mate, what was going to happen next to these people. Would anyone make it off the ship alive?

As he stood in the gift shop, he looked at all the stuff he could no longer afford to buy. It made him sick. He turned to the mirror and snapped a picture of himself.

Well, at least you can't tell I neglected to shave, yet, he thought.

He walked over to the counter and looked at the Daily Sail.

Bingo, he thought. I suppose if it's free then I can't lose anything from it. Would certainly help get me out of debt.

With that, Ovi headed off to try his luck.

Cruise Director's voice: "I have some announcements.. the pool is now open, lunch is still being served in the dining room and Bingo will start in 30 mins. Immediately after Bingo, we will draw a raffle for a free cruise. The fingerprinting scheduled for 7:00 pm has been canceled. It seems that the supplies to work with went over board with the General. We are attempting to reach the Coast Guard to get help but so far we've had no luck. The internet and phones are going out sporadicly. Have a good afternoon and a wonderful day here on the SS Glicker."

Not for long though, the ship still needed repairs and it looked like Gec was the only one left. He started with the life boats since chances were good they might need them.

After the workout, Cobra ordered room service but everyone was so stinky, they didn't stay long. It was time for Bingo.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%206/snapshot_d513bcdc_b5542cdd.jpg)
Celdur called the numbers and excitement went around the room as they got closer to a winning card.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%206/snapshot_d513bcdc_b5542d02.jpg)
Rhodix jumped up and down with excitment. "I won" he yelled. Celdur handed him $50 in prize money.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%206/snapshot_d513bcdc_955439a3.jpg)
After Bingo, Celdur drew names for the raffles... the winner of the cruise is.. BohdiBlood Wave. Probably the last thing Bodhi wanted to win. He was on a break from the computer room and stopped by for the drawing.

another cruise after this one, and supposedly free Bodhi snorts as he shakes his head I'll give em free, the very first thing I'll do once i get back to shore is sue this blasted company and try to get as many others with me on it...*mental sigh/pause* assuming i survive to reach shore

Taking a deep breath i sit back down at the computer i was working on earlier and activates my program again to see if this one holds any nuggets of knowledge

i sneaked out of the disco and crept towards the Ovi's room. i grabbed the small cross around my neck and i used it to pick the lock.

"Yes! it worked! who would have thought that!

I tried to open the door but it was barricaded somehow.

"Blasted! stupid Photographer barricaded the door!? what is he expecting, a zombie outbreak? jeez

Curfew was in effect and everyone was suppose to be in their cabins.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%206/snapshot_d513bcdc_3557052f.jpg)
The Purser and Cruise director had a quiet discussion and made a major decision.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%206/snapshot_d513bcdc_5557050e.jpg)
They would make the announcement in the morning.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%206/snapshot_d513bcdc_155705c5-1.jpg)
No one saw Neoteric still out on the deck, he was laying down under the stars and thinking about Great Distance. Suddenly he heard some creaking noise, he looked up and saw the lifeboat above him swinging. It didn't sound normal, they are usually tied tight to the ship. He started to get up and look to see why it was moving.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%206/snapshot_d513bcdc_95570637.jpg)
He didn't move fast enough, the boat suddenly fell, right on top of him.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%206/snapshot_d513bcdc_9557069b.jpg)
Great Distance couldn't sleep and walked back out to where she had last seen Neoteric only to find his lifeless body laying underneath the lifeboat.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%206/snapshot_d513bcdc_75570701.jpg)
Her screams and cries plus the noise of the falling boat brought people out of their cabins to see what happened. Was this an accident or a murder? No one seemed sure of anything except that the poor casino dealer was dead.

Looks like I'm going to get my wish anyways because I can't stand another day fixing this stupid boat full of stupid people."

Another day, another murder, another attempt to frame me.  My roommate this time.  That certainly doesn't bode well for me.  The people on this boat are crazy, they'd find some sort of excuse.  I made my way to the scene of the crime as Huckbuck made his exclamation.

"We shouldn't point fingers, look where it's gotten us.  Those lynched outnumber those murdered.  We need to sit back for a bit and think about this, discuss, share information.  We've all been doing investigations of some sort I'd assume.  We need to work together.  Besides, anytime that it looks like someone definetly did it, it turns out to not have been them.  AlwaysWatching was killed because someone was stabbed with a Sushi knife, Krakow Sam because of the razor.  Now you want to lynch Gec just because a boat fell on Neoteric?  If anything, we should be voting for the least obvious candidate!"

"Please toss me already! I don't want to stay on this boat anymore! I can't fix the engines anyways so what use am I anyways?!"

I fumble through my my pockets and hand them the red inked note I found in the pool.

Swallowing a hand-full of my 'medicine' i step outside and lock the door to my room before heading toward the lobby hoping for a chat with the Purser, tho upon hearing the news of another murder i change my course to the deck it happened on

Another morning, another murder....hmm, wonder who's tally is highest by now, the murderer or us tossing people overboard

Shaking my head i step out onto the deck and look at all those gathered there "Well, the computers in the library doesn't hold any clues in regards to the murders, does anybody here know if there is any other computers on the ship and if so where would they be located?"

Man I should console Great Distance, it must be such a shock to discover a dead body, I bet could take advantage of her in her fragile state... Oh snap! Why didn't I see this sooner?!?

"Everybody may I have your attention, I believe I know who the murderer is!"

Dun, dun, duuuuuuun. That should perk their interest.

"All of these murders seem mostly random, there's no apparent connection between any of the victims. Our murder kills someone every night and frames someone else for it. We've been tossing people overboard willy-nilly, letting the our little murderer to get away with even more murder. Ingenious really, well that is until tonight.

"You see, all of the murders seem to have no connection to them. Besides the first murder, there seems to be no motivation to any of the killing except to fill the killer's apparent thirst for blood. But the killer made one fatal mistake. Letting their emotions get in the way. That's right ladies and gentlemen we have a 'Black Widow' on our hands.

"I believe the first person murdered was a past lover to the killer. Maybe he dumped her, and she couldn't handle all of her womanly emotions and stalked him to this ship, then killing him with the sushi knife. She would have gotten away with it if her emotions didn't get the better of her. You see after the first murder..."

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%20Two/snapshot_351a9e28_75322f21.jpg)

"... Durgan hit on our murderer, Great Distance. Disgusted with men at the time see did away with him with some baked goods!"

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%20three/snapshot_d513bcdc_f5356969.jpg)

"All of you thought it was the chef, and obviously you were all wrong, but who else knows their way around a kitchen better then a chef? That's right a woman! We tossed the Chef over board and with her top suspect gone she had to kill again and frame someone else so none of us would put 2-and-2 together. Hell she even tried framing me for the first mates murder.

"Everything was going well for Great Distance until she started to warm up to another man. I couldn't help but notice that she and Neoteric making googley eyes at each other on the dance floor then leaving the party together. But her womanly emotions wouldn't let her fall in love again, so she had to kill him. Then who just happens to find the body but Great Distance out ships murderer!"

I sit up in my bed as sunlight pours through the window. My eyes still closed, I absentmindedly reach towards the side table for my watch and wallet. All my hand falls upon is unobstructed wood. I sit bolt upright and look closer. I left them right there when I came back to bed. I tug at the side table drawer until it slides open, revealing my money box broken apart with only a crumpled $1 bill inside.

Several fervent minutes of searching later, I stomp out of my room, face red and heated.

"Someone is going to catch hell for this."

Looking over at ilikesanta i tilt my head to the side "Quite a nice little theory there but do you have any actually facts to back it up if i may ask"

Bodhi's eyes studies everybody for a moment "Unless there is any proof I'd advice everybody against tossing accusations around as they serve no purpose aside from riling people up against others" A slight shrug given as he looks back at ilikesanta "One could even claim YOU are the murderer simply because you try to toss suspicion over on Great Distance with an elaborate story"

Shaking my head a few times i furrow my brows deeply "Standing here squabbling about who the murderer is tho won't solve anything so I'm off again to try and find somebody who can tell me where there are more computers on this ship aside from those in the Library"

I had been standing there shocked for a while, listening to what the other people were saying. I coughed. I couldn't think of anything say.

I slowly turned on my heels and walked back into my room, hoping that no one would follow. Closing the door behind me, I greeted my sloth painting by ripping a tiny piece off of it. The piece in my hand I sat on the bed and looked down.

I think I still have that bottle of gini hidden in my suitcase...

My morning stroll across the deck was interrupted by shouts. Turned out there was another murder. A lifeboat fell on somebody or other. I didn't care anymore.

So this is what a cruise is like then?

I decided to go and look for that attractive singer again. If I was going to die, I didn't want to die alone.

I yell to BodhiBloodWave as he walks away, "Your right, we should just go back to tossing random people over the side of the ship, better hurry to the internets I'm sure we'll find the killer there!" ::) I turn back to everyone else who is still around. "I'm tellling you, Great Distance is the killer."

While the crowd still deliberated I remained on the floor in fetal position singing a muttered song no one could understand. I was determined to sit next to the fallen lifeboat and wait until they decide to toss me.

Lual took advantage of the situation to find Celdur and approach him to see what he had wanted when he gave Lual his room number. Lual found him near the scene of the crime.

"Hey, remember me? How about I go to your room in a couple of minutes? Wait for me there," he whispered in Celdur's ear. Celdur nodded and went through a door leading down.

Lual went quickly to his room to put on his best underwear, Huckbuck's. Soon after, he was on the door to Celdur's room (fully dressed for now, of course). He found him sitting on his bed, facing the door. A suitcase was behind him.

Lual sat in on the bed and faced Celdur. "Why did you want me to come here a couple of days ago?"

Celdur appeared pleased and a bit anxious. "I just wanted to tell you that..." He came closer to Lual. "...I have this great insurance to show you!"

As Celdur talked and handed Lual pamphlets from the suitcase, Lual rubbed his temples. "This is not what I was expecting."

It didn't take much longer for Lual to get up from the bed and walk out the door. He laid on his own bed and fell fast asleep, dreaming of the ways this evening could have turned out.

Dr. Inkling ran out of his room as soon as he heard someone else had died.  He heard wild accusations being tossed about as he approached the raft.

"People, Please!  Enough blood has been shed on this boat.  Whoever you think is the murderer now, can we just lock them up for the night and not kill them?"

"More importantly," I interrupted, "Someone stole my money and wallet. We need to catch that bastard in the case that I'll have the chance to use my money again. Not to mention he, or possible she," a glare towards a woman, "took my watch too."

Usually SpaceOddity kept her distance when people were shouting over dead bodies, but since she decided to mingle more, she joined the crowd.

"... womanly emotions ... " she heard Ilikesanta say, she almost smiled. That couldn't be about her, she had kept everything to herself for much too long.

Ah, its Great Distance that he is accusing, SpaceOddity thought looking at her. I suppose its possible...

Another vote was counted and again for the third time, it was a tie. For every person murdered, there were two people going overboard.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_f55b0fd2.jpg)
And where do you think your going? they asked Great Distance.
She protested that she didn't do it, she went back to her room for a drink is all. Not believing her because she was of course, the one who found the body.. plus the Santa guy made good sense.. didn't he? Didn't matter, they grabbed her and without a second thought, threw her overboard.
*Great Distance was not the killer*

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_555b1036.jpg)
Gec was oblivious to the commotion on the top deck, he was playing darts in the crew rec room. When the door suddenly burst open and he was grabbed and taken outside and thrown into the murky water to join in the fate of the others.
*Gec was not the killer*

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_755b14f0.jpg)
How do we keep getting this wrong? You seemed so sure Santa.

Something must be done, we must get rescued before everyone ends up dead.

With everyone out of the engine room, Bodhi found his way to the engine room computers. All he found on the other computers were emails. Maybe there would be something interesting here.

Lual read through the lastest dective magazine, looking for hints when Met walked in.

Lual jumped up to greet him with a huge huge.

As the day began, the newly self-appointed Captain made sure the Daily Sail was delivered to each room.

A small group continued to talk in the library, three more people where gone now. They needed to start figuring this out.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_d55b157f.jpg)
Danzik suddenly didn't feel well, he thought he'd go lay down.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_b55b12c2.jpg)
Ovi woke up feeling fiesty, trying to figure out ways to protect himself.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_155b15d2.jpg)
Danzik didn't make it very far before he felt himself feeling faint.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_755b1617.jpg)
He collapsed and fell to the floor.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_955b1692.jpg)
Met sent for the doctor who examined him while he lay on the floor. The news was pretty dire.

Sitting in the computer room i force myself to focus on hacking into the computers after anything that can be useful in regards to whats been happening on this ship while silently grumbling to myself.

Another two dead, this mob will be worse then the killer if this keeps up, for every one that gets murdered two more gets tossed overboard sighs deeply I told them it was only words and there was no proof against Great Distance, but do they listen......ofcourse not

Shaking my head rapidly from side to side a few times i try to dismiss these thoughts from my mind as they distract me from my work at hand

I saw the Daily Sail.

His gun was stolen? So...Cobra stole the gun?

I shook my head. This wasn't the plan. I was forgetting about it all...That was fair enough, right?

Eurgh.

I finished my drink and ordered another. If I get off this ship, getting the credit card bill for all these drinks is gonna be pretty terrible...I looked around.

So where is that pretty singer?

Well we finally got that pesky murderer off the ship, now I can sit back, relax, and just wait to be rescued. I don't know why some people here think the murder is still on board? Don't they know I solved the crime? Why aren't more people patting me on the back and calling me a hero? Idiots. To bad they tossed the ships engineer over bored as well, I guess you have to break some eggs...

*Danzik falls over on the ground*

Eww, he doesn't look so well, I've done enough hero work the last couple of days. Let the doctor deal with him, I think I'll go back to the top deck and get some fresh air.

The doctor gathered everyone together to deliver the news.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_f55c1e29.jpg)
Danzik didn't make it, he got a bad case of pneumonia along with the flu. Shock and sadness filled the room.. but not for long.
*Danzik died from the flu, he was not the killer*

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_b55c285b.jpg)
It was time for the pool party!

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_755c2a19-1.jpg)
It was a beautiful day and the pool looked fun.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_355c2ba0.jpg)
SpaceOddity was very put off with BFSupraman's advances. Who does he think he is? He has bad breath too.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_555c28cb.jpg)
Since Ovi never went on pool deck, he ate pizza instead.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_d55c235e.jpg)
"Look at me! Weeeee"

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_b55c2292-1.jpg)
Meanwhile, Lual was back to doing laundry, he didn't mind though, he liked washing the clothes.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_b55c2ad2.jpg)
Inkling left the pool party to check on the conditions in the kitchen. He found them very satisfactory.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_555c2af1-1.jpg)
He also found Oviraptor.

Ovi rubbed his eyes.

How did I get in here? he thought. I think I might be turning delirious, but I've got to get back to my room!

He left the kitchen and headed to his room.

"OoOhhoh..." he groaned, "I don't feel very good."

He wasn't sure what room he was going into, but he didn't care; he had to lie down. He searched for something soft to lay down on and collapsed onto it. All he could do now try to keep his stomach calm. It wasn't working very well.

Dr. Inkling hauled Danzik's disease-ridden  corpse up to the deck and tossed it overboard.  There was nowhere to put him, and the ship was going crazy enough as is.  At least we got rid of this guy, he thought. He was always at the head of the lynch mobs, and people in top hats creep me out.

"What are you doing!?" He shouted at the people partying in and around the pool.  "People are DYING from the flu, and you're all dancing around spreading your germs!  If there was anything resembling order left on this ship, I'd put it under quarantine!"

Dr. Inkling stomped back to his office to get some flu medication ready.  His supplies were running low.  He decided to add in some tranquilizers, maybe that would calm down the angry mob.

I was feeling strange, but that feeling got drowned in the music, I really felt like partying! "WOOOHOOO!" I shouted feeling great. And then I saw her. That girl that always looked angry was standing next to the pool, that girl in red. 'bah, I'll make her get in the party mood!', I thought as I approached her, and shoved her into the pool!

Ovi found a couch outside of the dining room and laid down, hoping the nausea would pass.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_b55c2a82.jpg)
Gauph was still fuming about the General.
I knew that military guy was up to no good, he took the fingerprinting kit, he didn't help us at all.

The pool party was winding down so Celdur hosted an impromtu pillow fight.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_b55c9340.jpg)
The pizza buffet was open and ready to serve the hungry. The doctor gave his seal of approval.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_f55c2a3e-1.jpg)
As Bodhi got his pizza, he wondered if those emails he uncovered meant anything. What kind of guy would have two wives?

After lunch, Lego, Rhodix and Gorman sat in the sauna discussing the lack of women on the ship and compared love stories.

Gossip and talk of the murders went on during cocktails.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_555c951d.jpg)
It was time for the show soon, better get to the show room.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Murder%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_555c9720.jpg)
Meanwhile in the gym, Rhodix got dressed to leave for the show but the door was locked. He started yelling for Lego who had left not long ago.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_555c9583.jpg)
While events played out in the Sauna, Spaceoddity gave a stunning performance with her singing, probably her best show of the week.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Murder%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_555c973b.jpg)
He continued to call out but no one answered.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Murder%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_755c9727.jpg)
Now he had to use the bathroom and he couldn't get the door open. Plus it was getting really hot. They had already been here too long.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Murder%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_b55c9945.jpg)
Gorman finally got up to take a look and found that it was indeed blocked or locked. That door would not budge. It was too late for Rhodix though, he was so hot he felt like he was melting.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Murder%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_755c994a.jpg)
He did melt in fact, drowning in his own sweat and he overheated too much.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Murder%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_b55c99bb.jpg)
In front of his eyes, Gorman watched Rhodix die, overcome with grief, someone finally heard the cries.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Murder%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_555c9a3e.jpg)
By the time they got the door open, it was too late, Rhodix was gone.

Questions were asked, who would lock the door? Who is the killer? We have to find out soon!

Crap, another murder, Didero thought when he arrived at the sauna, It couldn't have been anybody at the cocktail party though, they all have a pretty good alibi. But who was and who wasn't there? It was so busy there... Now that I'm the captain, I'll have to take charge though!

Didero shouted at the group gathered around the sauna: "All right, listen up! Everybody that was a the cocktail party should speak up, preferably with somebody that can verify you were actually there! That should limit the list of suspects!"

Seeing Rhodix' dead withered corpse was the breaking point for Slarti.  It was too much; how did that even happen?
Slarti listened to Gorman as he explained what had happened, before Gorman finally ran off in tears.
Slarti's mind seemed blank and vacate waiting for reason and sanity to return, but it seemed a scarce commodity on this floating psychward.

Suddenly a voice entered into Slarti's brain --
"All right, listen up! Everybody that was a the cocktail party should speak up, preferably with somebody that can verify you were actually there! That should limit the list of suspects!"
It was as if someone had hit the restart button on his brain and the world became clearer and his memory sharper.  Of course, it was time to return to Holmes' principles.
'It is an old maxim of mine that when you have excluded the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.'
All Slarti had to do now was separate the impossible from the incredibly improbable.
(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%207/snapshot_d513bcdc_555c951d.jpg)
Who were not at the cocktail party?
BodhiBloodWave, Bona Fide Supraman, Celdur, Gorman Conall, Legodragonxp, and Space Oddity.

'One should always look for a possible alternative and provide against it. It is the first rule of criminal investigation.'
Could someone at the party have slipped away, and instead of going to the show, committed the murder?  While possible, the killer seems to plan his murders methodically.  Only Vivec's death seemed impromptu, yet seemingly premeditative.  Slarti had been thinking Danzik was the murderer until he had died of the flu.  The murderer had been following the axiom of never do the same trick twice and pulling off perfectly timed murders.   Hell, the murderer managed to kill Neoteric with a liferaft.  How much planning must that have taken?  Slarti shivered at the thought of being boat murdered

'Where a crime is coolly premeditated, then the means of coverting it are coolly premeditated also.'
If the murderer had been at the party it would have been a happenstance murder, but it seemed planned knowing where everyone else would be.

'One true inference invariably suggests others.'
Where were the people not at the party and what were they doing?

Space Oddity --  She was downstairs getting ready for her show.  Getting upstairs, locking a door and getting back down all in the time it took us to go from the party to our seats seems highly unlikely.

Gorman Conall -- He was in the sauna with Rhodix.  Locking himself in a deathtrap, hoping to be saved by others to get an alibi does not fit the motif of the murderer.  More than likely our murderer was trying for his first double murder out of jealousy of the lynchings.

Legodragonxp -- Was in the sauna, but left.  The idea that he jammed the door when he left is too simple.  The murderer was lying in wait for anyone to leave so they could try to frame them, it fits the m.o.

Bona Fide Supraman -- Didn't know where he was. He was a lawyer of some sort and gossip on the ship was that he had be hooking up with the blond lawyer every night before she was thrown overboard.  While a suspect in this scenario, for some reason he seemed unlikely.

BodhiBloodWave -- Location unknown.  Have only seen him around the computer room occasionally.  Someone to look into.

Celdur -- Where was Celdur?  For a cruise director he wasn't around group activities as much as one would expect.  Definitely someone worth investigating. 


'It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.'
I need some solid facts before I go around spouting my theories to people, but how?

'It is of the highest importance in the art of detection to be able to recognize out of a number of facts which are incidental and which vital. Otherwise your energy and attention must be dissipated instead of being concentrated.'
'The faculty of deduction is certainly contagious.'
With the petty theft, underwear perversion, and blackmail there's too much not-murder events going on.  Maybe if those were resolved people would think more clearly.

Having an idea how to resolve one of them, Slarti made his way to the ATM and withdrew some money from his personal checking account and went to the gift shop.
Upon arriving he proceeded to buy all the underwear -- and anything that even looked like underwear -- some dental floss, and 3 disposable cameras.  He then quickly returned to his room, stopping only briefly to peruse and pilfer some object from the unattended steward's cleaning cart in the hall.  He then locked his door and went to work with his scheme.

*mind clouded still in shock fumbling back to the gym Gormans head was racing full of thoughts*

He..he tried to kill me too (he thought to himself) I should be dead too. I should be dead too. *that thought kept racing in his mind*

I was lucky real lucky (starts doing a number on the punching bag) But Rhodix he was not lucky at all.

*Gorman begins to get more violent with the punching bag imagining the killer in his head)

If he wants me dead he is going to have to try a bit harder. *A gasp of air and Gorman stood stunned it just hit him*

Lego left then the door locked.... *In a burst of rage he let on final blow against the bag.

Lego you should of made sure you got me the first time i won't give you another chance!!

*Gorman ran off in a fit of rage to find lego*

Accusations.. finger pointing.. random voting... it's a four way tie!!!

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_15659490.jpg)
Slarti was not too happy, he hadn't written his wives in days, they would worry.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_556595de.jpg)
It's been decided, you have to go overboard. One of you or all of you are the killers.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_95659627.jpg)
Once the passengers started ominously closing in on him, Lual started to sprint toward his room. These people would not take from him the things that allowed him to remember that all these people were the same as him.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_35659644.jpg)
He fought his way to the staff floor, liberally handing out punches to anyone and anything. Eventually, he got to the door of his room. He burst it open. He quickly went to the side of his bed, bent down and took out the basket in which the underwear was neatly arranged. As he went out the door, he remembered what he had left within the entrails of the pile. He inserted his hand into the pile and produced a knife. It was a long, sharp knife with a black handle.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_f565966c.jpg)
"I wanted to keep this for protection in case the killer decided to attack me. I guess I will have to turn it against all this people, though."

He held up the knife in a position that would make it easy to see and started another sprint, this time a race to the top deck. In the way, he was only able to see a blur of colors. He might have hurt someone on the way, but he didn't know. His thoughts were focused on what he was about to do.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_75659739.jpg)
Once he noticed that he had reached the top deck, he quickly went to one of the sides. He then emptied the basket onto the sea.
"Let's see them get these now."
He walked onto the banister and let the sea take one last thing from him, his life. He threw himself over the blanket of the underwear. He went through it and disappeared into the water, never to be seen again.
*Lual was not the killer*

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_75659783.jpg)
Santa was next, as he was thrown over he shouted...
" what's wrong you, I already caught the killllllllerrrrr....."(splash)
*Santa was not the killer*

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_956597d3.jpg)
Slarti was next, protesting until the end.
*Slarti was not the killer*

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_7565987f.jpg)
Last to go was Celdur, he broke down in tears shouting No!! All I tried to do was make some extra money, I didn't hurt anyone!!
*Celdur was not the killer*

Four more people gone and a killer is still on the loose. There won't be anyone to run activities now so everyone is pretty much on their own.

"I am returning to the Engine room, if anybody needs me i can be found there until i've finished searching the computers there" Bodhi then moves off rapidly in the direction of the said room

...

Now things were genuinely terrifing.  The murderer, I could deal with, he had no reason to come after me, but the mob now... 4 in one go?  Next vote I'm locking myself in my room until it blows over.  I put an inflatable lifejacket on under my vest.

My aimless wandering and pondering eventually brings me to my usuall locale of the poolside bar tended by Neoadept.

"Four... They threw off four of them, can you belive it?  It's out of control.  This has to end, we have to find the murderer quickly before the crazies kill us all.  It wasn't DangerMouse, it wasn't the general.  Damnit, who's left that it could be?  Who has a motive?  Who is the most nonchalante, inobvious person that nobody would ever guess?

A large group had formed by the sushi bar, a popular place where they like to congregate, to discuss the events of this morning. Four people gone.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_15659945.jpg)
That's when Ovi caught Xeno's eye, with all the excitement, he' forgotten about his piece of business with the photographer.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_95659964.jpg)
He walked over to Ovi and demanded the photograph. Though he was nervous, Ovi tried to the change the subject.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_7565a112.jpg)
When Xeno doubled over with a cough, Ovi took the opportunity to go back to his room.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_d5659d0c.jpg)
In another room, Gorman sat stewing about his near death experience. He had many questions for Lego when he saw him again.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_35659ab4.jpg)
Bodhi found the doctor and asked for some more pills.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_3566cd6d.jpg)
After acquiring his drugs, Bodhi headed back to the engine room leaving the Doctor in his office.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_9566cb68.jpg)
Upon returning to his room, Ovi found a birthday cake waiting. He was to nervous to eat any of it, not after his encounter with the priest.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_b566cd57.jpg)

THE DAILY SAIL - Your daily guide to FUN the death toll - Day 8
Acting Captain: Didero and First Mate: dead
Cruise Director: N/A / Purser: Didero
Sunrise 6:33 am / Sunset 7:44 pm

We had another murder last night. It almost was two. Passenger named Rhodix was overheated and melted in the Sauna. The ship vote found four people who could be responsible and they were thrown overboard but it was found out that they were innocent. So, the murderer is still on board. We must find this killer. We must be diligent. The flu is still going around so please get some rest.

Since our cruise director was thrown overboard, we don't have any planned activities. You'll be pretty much on your own. Meals will still be served in the usual places. We are still attempting to radio for help but it seems that no one is hearing our calls. The ship has no engines and gas so we are now adrift at sea. We hope there will be enough food to last until we are rescued. We will be conducting room searches today to look for clues.

Our performing Diva has agreed to continue entertainment for as long as we are at sea. There will remain a show at 8:00 pm

Today's activities:
Breakfast at  your leisure:  pool deck or room service
12:00 Lunch: Pool deck or pizza bar
5:00 Happy Hour at the Casino bar
6:00  Dinner: Pool deck or pizza buffet
8:00  Show: Rock and Roll with Lego (special guest performance)
1:00 am All guests must be in their cabins
-------------------------------------------------------------
Murders:
Vivec- stabbed with sushi knife
Durgan - poisoned by pastry
Andrew Ryan - electrocuted in pool
Plank of Wood - shot in the head
Anou Mawi - throat slashed with razor
Neoteric - Crushed by lifeboat

Met began the room searches, one at a time.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_15692fdf.jpg)
Gauph joined the search team and thought it would be good to make his own notes.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_75693110.jpg)
Huckbuck just took a bubble bath. This we depressing, he was above all this, he needed to get home.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_b5692f82.jpg)
Ovi was wandering around and found the microphone still hooked up on stage so he jumped up and sang while no one was watching, so he thought.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_75693467.jpg)
After Ovi left, Martyk gave it a try too. He had been watching from the back of the room.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_756931b5.jpg)
Ovi walked by the casino and saw a game going on. He longed to be able to play.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_556931f6.jpg)
Since they weren't playing for money, he joined in.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_956936ed.jpg)
Xeno found the doctor and ask for something to help his cough. The doctor pulled out his "magic pills" and charged him $50. Gauph saw the exchange as did SO on his way to the kitchen.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_f5693397.jpg)
The kitchen was again a mess. As he was done searching, he caught a glance at the serving girl, she was returning his gaze also. Maybe he did look hot in this outfit.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_b5693124.jpg)
Bodhi continued his computer search in the engine room. He stuck his flash drive in the slot and entered some numbers.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_f5693134.jpg)
In another part of the ship, Didero was on the Bridge computer, trying to find some answers and reach someone. Suddenly, a virus started spreading through out the computer system. The screen went blue with lots of numbers and digits and then it went blank. He tried to restart and nothing.. it was gone.. everything was gone. There would be no more internet on the ship.

I obtained the pills from the doctor and went to the computer-room.

"Now lets hope these work. hmm, what can i do now? oh wait! i'll expand my website!"

i walked into the room and sat down behind a computer. i pushed the button. nothing.

"damn, really everything is broken on this ship! how do i spread the Sloth's Religion now? hmm...Ah! thats it! i'll make some flyers!!"

i stood up and ran to my room, brainstorming about the flyers.

Doctor Inkling sat in his office rubbing his temples. 

This madness has got to stop.  The only way to stop the mob is to find the killer.  But who could it be?  That 'priest' might be crazy enough to do it.... Agh, with no evidence I'm as bad as the mob.

He went over to his supply cabinet.  Stocks were getting dangerously low, he'd have to mix in more placebos or up the price.  He rummaged through the bottles before digging out two pills and swallowing them himself.

Finishing with yet another computer in the engine room i change over to the next one and slide my flash drive into it "Awww, come on, surely there has to be something of worth on one of these computers" a slight shake of my head as i dig up a few pills from a pocket and swallow them

atleast very few come down here so i get to be left in peace while i work

furrowing my brows deeply i enter a few more commands into the computer as i dig into its depths after information

The underwear I had been given with the ships loggo on sat tight, 'How am I going to be able to walk in theese?' I thought as leaved the room. That bath had been something well deserved. 'What should I do today? Maybe something fun is happeningat the top deck? Theres usually a lot of stuff going on there, mostly killings though' I thought with a shrug as I headed of towards the elevators.

As Didero watched the sun set, he wondered what course of action to follow next. He'd never had these types of problems in his bounty hunting days. In those cases he already knew who he was looking for, not some random person who kills at a whim. He wasn't trained to be a detective and now he is in charge of what is left of an entire ship. *sigh*

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_7571682a.jpg)
Xeno and Space Oddity were using the computers at the same time when they went down.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_55716822.jpg)
Since she couldn't check her email, SO got up to get ready for her show.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_d5716848.jpg)
Oviraptor got back to his room to find his birthday cake missing. He wasn't going to eat it anyway but it was odd because the cake was gone and message was left in it's place. He called Lego into his room to take a look at it.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_d5716a29.jpg)
Brandon and Martyk were hanging out in the lobby when suddenly Brandon started coughing.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_f5716a7d.jpg)
His coughing got worse and up came some blood. He fell over with a gasp.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_75716b1c.jpg)
Martyk called for the doctor and the Purser. When they arrived, Dr. Inkling declared Brandon to be dead. Another victim of the flu epidemic.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_b5716b43.jpg)
About this time, Space Oddity got off the elevator and stood in stunned silence. Another death!!

The body was taken away and disposed of to prevent the further spread of germs. The doctor recommended that it be thrown overboard with the others.
*Brandon was not the killer*

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_b5716d2f.jpg)
A few hours later, Space Oddity played piano and sang for all the passengers that were left. For an hour, they could forget their problems.

The show went very well, with not much else to do it was almost a full house.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_55716e33.jpg)
BF Supraman watched intently.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_35716dd5.jpg)
After the show, Xeno shot Ovi a really nasty look and mumbled something as he walked by. Ovi thought he said something about concrete boots and an ocean.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_15716de3.jpg)
Gorman walked up to Lego and asked to talk.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_b5716e02.jpg)
Still angry about the sauna, he wanted to know where Lego had went and if he had locked the door. Lego just shrugged.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_b5716da0.jpg)
Huckbuck was at his breaking point, he wanted to go home. His nice big safe home.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_f5716972.jpg)
Much later in the evening when things were quiet, Gauph headed up the stairs, having completed his portion of the ship search.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%208/snapshot_d513bcdc_556935e6.jpg)
He was up a few steps when he heard a noise behind him, before he could turn around, he felt the pain in his back. He turned and saw his attacker before he fell down the stairs and crumpled on the floor.

Gauphastus lay in a pool of blood for the rest of the night, a pair of scissors by his side.

Oh no, not another one..., SpaceOddity moved a bit closer to see who it was this time.

OMG, all that blood!, she suddenly felt sick. She left before people could see her lose her cool. The last thing she needed was people seeing her vomit.

So somebody stole a cake and that Gorman yahoo is erked over a simple prank door locking. Geez. It isn't like that stuff doesn't happen away from this 'paradise'. You know, Gorman could have snapped that door off its hinges if he had wanted to. It's not like he is a panty-waisted whiner like most of these people.

"Yep," I reply, having spent several days avoiding conversation by studiously rubbing clean glasses with a rag.  "And I've stopped charging because I honestly doubt anyone is going to care once this is all done with."  And I can make back any tips and then some by suing corporate over emotional distress once we're back on dry land, I add to myself.  Like hell I'm getting on another boat after this.

"Well folks, another day another murder. Our last hope at getting engines fixed was killed this morning. What a mess to clean up. There will be no copies of The Daily Sail today as they seem to be missing. I can't print any more because we ran out of paper. We only expected to be at sea for 7 days and now we are two days over that. In other news, the vote was taken and Legodragon was thrown overboard this morning. It turned out that he was not the killer. That leaves 13 of us and the murderer still lurks among us. I'm taking the day off and relaxing. So have fun today!"

Dr. Inkling was also there, reading up on how to stop the flu epidemic. With a lack of proper medication there wasn't much he could do for these people. They were all going to die anyway.

SpaceOddity was looking at some art work out of sheer boredom. She was glad someone came up to talk. Not being very good at first lines, she said: "Hi, are you sure you want to talk to me? Are you sure its safe? For all you know I might be the killer."

She smiled as sweetly as she could, for fear of him taking her suggestion seriously. After all, most killings were actually done by the mob, not the killer.

I slide the drinks down the bar at them before absentmindedly polishing the glass again.  At appropriate moments I would nod at Met's story, but for the most part I kept to my own thoughts.  We can't use physical clues to figure this out.  The killer is clearly methodical enough to clean up the scene after he's through, except for what he leaves behind.  So we're left with three clues only:  He's had access to all the things he used to kill.  He can get in and out of peoples rooms freely.  And finally, he's he's careful and most of the killings don't seem to be spur of the moment.  In fact, just the first victim and Gauph were killed in any way that might have been spontaneous.  If there's a connection, it's there.

"Oh, just trying to figure out the murderer before we all get thrown overboard or die of flu, and keep the mob happy," I reply with a small, sad smile, "you know, the usual."  I lean across the counter and lower my voice, "between you and me, I'm starting to suspect the Doc', Inkling.  I've heard rumors that he works the less reputable side of pharmaceuticals, and a doctor fits what I've been thinking about.

"He can go anywhere on the ship with the excuse of treating a patient, can hide damn near anything in that coat too.  He's practically expected to enter peoples rooms.  And you don't exactly get to be a doctor by being an idiot, and our guy has to be pretty clever to pull off framing one innocent after another.  And just suppose someone found out about his gig on the side?  It would ruin him.  And if he's been sampling his own stock, he might be on edge enough to do something drastic."

I straighten up and return to polishing the glass.  "All speculation mind you.  I wouldn't go spreading it around, just... Help look into it, would ya'?"

Down in the crew deck, Didero made a sandwich. He'd made the decision to put all the kitchen staff off the ship in a life boat. This meant the only food available was what they made or had up on deck. He kept the one guy deck because he was quiet and didn't say much and he seemed to like his job.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_957a3829.jpg)
That guy would cook all day and never complain.

SpaceOddity and Huckbuck came up to the hot tub, they seemed to be getting very close. Entertainers have to stick together. Huckbuck also needed to ask the Purser about moving that crazy preacher out of his room. He didn't want to share with anyone right now, except maybe the lady.

Gorman was working out as usual and headed to the showers when he found a cake, the missing birthday day cake. He was starving right now and need some carbs. No one else was around so he dug in.

Gorman ate quite a bit of the cake was on his way to throw away the rest.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_157a3154.jpg)
When suddenly, he grabbed his stomach. Oooohhhhh he moaned.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_b57a3189.jpg)
His stomach cramped and he fell to the floor.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_f57a31ba.jpg)
He lay there unable to move, pain going through his body, he couldn't yell for help or scream or cry.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_b57a31fe.jpg)
It was hours later when his body was finally found. Dead on the floor of the gym.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Day%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_957a322e.jpg)
Ovi dug out his camera and snapped a photo of the body. If he ever made it out of this mess, it might be worth some money. He was als thankful that he did not eat the cake when it was first delivered to his room

Questions went around the room...
Who killed Gorman?
Who poisoned the cake?
Who gave the cake to Ovi?
Who stole the cake from Ovi?
Who should we throw overboard next?

Great, just great.  More food related killings, and with all the other kitchen staff (apart from the tool up on the pool deck who's not much good for anything other than flipping pankackes), that'd make most of the jumpy-to-conclusiony mob suspect me, the most obvious, when the most obvious has proven time and time again to be innocent.

Not taking anychances until this round of lynching is over and done with, I head to my room, push Neoteric's old bunk in front of the door, and go lie down under my bed to worry.

Only 12 of us left..., SpaceOddity realized she couldn't keep her distance anymore. Who would be able to do all this?
Because she had been so distant, she didn't know anyone, not really. She had been seeing coming and goings at the doctors' without anyone really looking ill. While the people who really had the flu just died. She had noticed, but never took the effort to make a judgment. But by now, it could be of life-and-death importance.

She made a mental note to stay around Huckbuck a bit more, he seemed safe enough. She smiled and went looking for him.

I took a deep breath and came out from under the bed.  I'd been doing some thinking and realized, if the mob did turn it's horrible eye to me, I'd have no chance no matter where I hid.  Sighing, I headed out of my room and trudged off to the kitchen.  I was the last of the kitchen staff and frankly, I had my doubts of whether or not these people could survive without me.  Using my key, I access the storage closet and pick out some frozen pizzas from the bowels of the freezer.  As I sat around waiting for the pizzas to cook, I considered possibilities.

"Didero, he's irritating but I'm not sure how likely of a candidate he really is.  He seems to be doing his best to keep us calm, but I can't discount him yet, Huckbuck is just a celebrity and probably wouldn't be able to pull this off, nor would SpaceOddity.  Xeno is a bit of a religious nut and has already seemed to flip a bit, but I've seen him going after Ovi, so he'd probably kill him if he was the murderer.  Ovi on the other hand, would probably kill Xeno to get him off his back."

"So then, who's that leave... I can discount myself unless I've been killing everyone in my sleep, which is impossible due to me being awake during a number of the killings.  Dr. Inkling does seem to be a bit... off.  Who knows what he could be capable of.  Doctors arn't stupid, he has access to the entire ship, he could quite possible be one of the most likley.  I'm almost certain they'd have to be a staff member so that leaves out Bodhi, Cobra and Supraman.  Met meanwhile seems too incompetent to be the murderer.  Then that just leaves... Neoadept.  As much as I hate to admit it he seems like one of the most likley candidates.  Inconspicuous, clever, a staff member.  Having worked on cruise liners a number of times, he could have quite possibly developed a disliking of them, giving him a motive.  As much as I hate to admit it he seems to be the most likley candidate.  Then again, was I with him during one of the killings.  Damnate my memory.  Until I can remeber for sure, I can't be certain.  The doctor though has been unaccountable for for all of them though.  Hmmm."

It was at this time that my thought proccess was interuptted by the dinging of the oven.  The pizzas were done.  Hopping over to the intercom, I send out a message accross the ship.

"Oi, this is Martyk, your resident food-fixer-upper.  I'm pleased to inform you that there is food available in the dinning room.  While you are free to come down and help yourself whenever you so desire, it's fresh and warm now.  Just giving you the head's up.  That is all."

A smile crept accross my face.  It'd been a while since I used the intercom and I'd forgotten how much fun it was to be an omnipotent voice echoing from the walls.  Glee.

I stood contemplatively in the corner munching on a slice of pizza, watching people file in and out with food.  I'd seen the latest tallies, and I was on the chopping block.  Sure, there was time for it to change, but it looked like the mob would be throwing another innocent over.  Ah well, I had the keys to the food.  Checking the inflatable lifejacket I was still wearing under my vest, I moved to get another slice.

Neoadept or Dr. Inkling.  It was one of those two, I was sure of it, but which?  Inkling with the means or Neoadept with a potential motive.  Both had the skills and knowhow to pull this off.  I sighed and chuckled.

"But the mob doesn't care." I muttered under my breath.  "Facts are useless against their blunt furiousity.  Heck, I'm accountable for during most of the killings."

Bodhi upon hearing the intercom heads directly for the dining room, a slight smirk appearing on his lips when he sees the dinner being pizza "Aaah, food made by the computer gods for the faithful" his voice slightly humored as he grabs a few slices and looks around the room to see who else was here before becoming a bit more serious "So anybody have any clues on who the murderer might be, it would likely be wise of us to start trying figuring it out properly considering how few we are becoming"

I look up and give him a faint grin.  "I think I've more or less narrowed it down.  My guess is the Doctor, Inkling.  Failing that Neoadept.  Nobody can be that inconspicuous without hiding something.  Of course, I can't say for certain."

Bodhi nods his head slightly "Do you know if any of them are good with computers?" munching a bit on one of his slices before continuing "I'm mainly asking due to the fact that the computers seemed to all fail when i tried to access the employee history folder" his brows furrowing thoughtfully "which leads me to think that somebody put up a virus to prevent anybody from looking into that area, unless it was just an coincidence i tried to enter it just as they all got messed up" shrugs slightly "Of course it could just be an attempt to try and throw us off the trail"

I sigh as I sit down near Martyk, having just entered the dining room and gathered up a tray.  "So, you and I are on the chopping block.  Apparently all they've got on us is that you're part of the kitchen staff and the last murder was by cake, and I haven't done anything suspicious so I must be hiding something."  I sigh again before pushing the tray away, "I came down here hoping to get a last meal, but I'm not even hungry.  Maybe I should've kept my mouth shut and kept doling out the drinks without comment, but I couldn't let another innocent go over.  One good turn, eh?

"Maybe it's for the best.  Up until now I thought getting off this ship alive would be the end of it, but now that I think of it...  The mob has killed more people than the murderer and I don't see the cops being too happy with that.  Might be better to go over now than rot in prison for the rest of our lives.  I don't know about you, but I'm calling turnabout fair play at this point.  I've locked up the drinks cabinet, which is more of a safe if you haven't seen it, and if I go over I'm keeping the keys on me.  Anyway," I say as I finally pick a slice off my tray, "bon appetit."

"Amen to that." I say as I toast to him with a pizza slice.  "Ah well, whaddya gonna do.  I've set my affairs in order and I'm ready for a swim.  Course, that doesn't mean I'm ready to go down just yet.  Frankly I'd been my prefference to avoid going for a dunk, but hey, either way, I'm prepared."

I sigh.  "You know, I've got to say, I don't know how I would have made it though this week and a bit without you.  You seem to be the only one I can confide in.  I just wanna say thanks, before I head off.  My head's been on the chopping block more than anyone else I'd say, it was only a matter of time before I failed to avoid the ax.

With a shrug I head off, wandering aimlessly though the halls.

I wish I could say it would be okay but I'm as scared as you are.
With that, they were both pushed over the railing and into the murky dark water below.

Huckbuck jumped out the hot tub and told him to leave them alone.

SpaceOddity watched the two for a bit, savoring the moment. It had been a while that men were fighting over her.

But then she got up, and took Huckbuck by the hand, "Lets go, it is starting to rain anyway, and my hair is getting wet. I don't want to have to perform with an afro tonight."

"Ok, sweetie" I said with my smooth and sensuall Hollywood voice, and then added "I'll be seeing you later!" in a very threatfull manner towards the fat guy. As we walked away I was lost in my thoughts for a while, 'Space Oddity is really sweet... she is the only nice person on this ship except for me that is, like that priest for example that I have to share room with.. he is going nuts! Hmm... I have to demand a new room from the pursuer...', We where now in the elevators, I turned towards SO and said; "So, what do you wanna do? You want me to follow you to your room and prepare for your show tonight..?"

"Yes, please do, I can use a little company right now. Two is safer than one these days."

"Can you believe that the mob almost picked me to take the dive?", she pouted. "Who's going to sing for them when I'm gone?"

Before leaving,  Huckbuck turned to the purser and asked for a new room. Considering there were now plenty of available rooms, the request was easy to fill.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_f57d4c36.jpg)
Since it was raining, the attorney gave up and got something to eat. He was still stewing about being rejected, he was an Ace Attorney for god's sake. DM couldn't keep her hands of him. At that moment he hated Huckbuck.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_d57d4c44.jpg)
In the kitchen a plan was made to start searching the ship for clues. Xeno led the way and told the others to look really well on the crew deck while he went to the passenger rooms.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_757d467d.jpg)
Cobra went looking in the laundry room and found something really interesting. Enough that it gave him the shakes.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_557d4a46.jpg)
Bodhi conveniently searched the doctors office, he couldn't take his eyes off the bottle of pills on the counter. No one was looking...

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_157d4862.jpg)
It was at that moment, a huge bolt of lightning hit the ship.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_957d4863.jpg)
It also hit Didero..

Post by: Met on July 07, 2008, 01:44:24 pm
I ran up to the top deck to find a very crispy Didero. It was hard to tell if he was still alive. His body continued to stand and shake.

"Someone find the doctor!"

Huckbuck and Spaceoddity stood there in shock as Didero fell to the floor!

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_357d4897.jpg)
As the rain continued to fall, SpaceOddity started crying. Unexpected things just keep happening.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_957d494e.jpg)
The doctor came up to check on Didero and pronounced him dead. The body was extremely stinking of burned flesh so they tossed it over with the rest.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_357d4b38.jpg)
Back in Huckbuck's room, SpaceOddity was overcome with coughing. She would need plenty of rest.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_b57d4b60.jpg)
Huckbuck got worried, mostly because he didn't want her to drop dead before he had some fun.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_f57d4c12.jpg)
She was fine and soon they snuggled up for the night.

'Aaah... thats more like it...' I thought a few minutes after it had ended. "To bad we didn't meet earlier, you are certainly a hidden jewel in more than one way miss" I said with my sweetest voice to the woman laying next to me, "If we get of this ship alive I might introduce you to some of the big ones in the music industry, with a good word from me you can get any record deal you want sweetie.."

I had just left Space Odditys room, walking proudly feeling like a real star again. As I walked down the hall I heard a voice to my left;

Quote from: some guy with an uggly haircut
Um everyone I found this page it's kind of creepy look at this.

"Hey, gimme that!" I said and took the piece of paper. Every word made me one step closer to trowing up, though I was able to keep myself from doing that. "Hey... do you know what this mean? Well appart from that we either have been eating or soon will be eating human pizzas? It means that the killer has a diary!"

A diary!? Hey, we could make an awesome movie out of this when we survive! we should call it ''Diary of the Dead!'' Brilliant!

"Ok, i should stop fooling around, and find that sneaky Photographer."

i started looking behind the box on the right.

"Cobra, perhaps we should compare that note to the last one."

Might as well see if I can do this.

"Alright, I've compared the hand writing. Though similar there are some differences."

(http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y234/OmegaMet/sc1wordcompare.jpg)

Though, if you assume there are two murderers, the notes don't make that much sense. They both appear to be  written by someone who is acting alone.

After what seemed like days...

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_5588f2b0.jpg)
Huckbuck slept as Space Oddity got up and left the room.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_b588f275.jpg)
BFSupraman decided to go looking around for clues.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_7588f32e.jpg)
With the kitchen staff gone, Neoadept had to do the cleaning up now.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_7588f24f.jpg)
Met helped out with the trash.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_f588f267.jpg)
They all said good night and went back to their rooms.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_5588f432.jpg)
Not going to his own room, BFS headed to the engine room.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_9588f442.jpg)
As he walked in, he could have sworn he smelled gas.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_b588fd27.jpg)
It didn't take long for the room to burst into flames.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Night%209/snapshot_d513bcdc_7588fd9a.jpg)
BonaFide Supraman was burned alive inside the engine room.

Outside the door was a lighter that looked like the one Yossi used to use and a latex glove.

Completely unaware of the fire, I started heading back to my room when I found what appeared to be a severed head...

Oh no! Another Murder!

Upon closer inspection I realized the head was still alive. Curious, I picked it up to see the face of Space Oddity looking around at her surroundings.

Still alive? Well, I suppose this isn't time for any bad "head" jokes.

"So, I assume you want to be returned to your body? Is it up aHEAD there in your room?"

Damnit.

Post by: LadyM on July 18, 2008, 03:14:36 pm
The vote was in and two more people were to be thrown overboard.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Final%20Vote/snapshot_d513bcdc_958cebda.jpg)
The first to go overboard was Xenomorph the priest. No amount of prayers could save him now. With one last calling to the Holy Sloth, over the side he went.
*He was not the killer*

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Final%20Vote/snapshot_d513bcdc_758ce9c0.jpg)
Space Oddity was down in the crew rec room writing in a book.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Final%20Vote/snapshot_d513bcdc_958ce9e8-1.jpg)
She heard Met coming down the hallway calling for her. Panic hit her as she clutched the book to her chest. What should she do now?

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Final%20Vote/snapshot_d513bcdc_358ce9fe.jpg)
It was too late, Met caught her writing in the diary.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Final%20Vote/snapshot_d513bcdc_958cea28.jpg)
They had a huge argument, SpaceOddity was confessing to the murders, she felt nothing for the victims, only for her own pain.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Final%20Vote/snapshot_d513bcdc_d58cea87.jpg)
Met handcuffed her and locked her in her room. They'd have to figure out what to do with her.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Final%20Vote/snapshot_d513bcdc_b58cf0b8.jpg)
Little did the survivors know but help was on the way. Messages had indeed gone out to the fleet and a search had been in progress. Captain Pat was determined to find the missing ship.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Final%20Vote/snapshot_d513bcdc_358cf0fc.jpg)
Finally he spotted it!! He called his crew together and they organized a rescue.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Final%20Vote/snapshot_d513bcdc_958cf23b.jpg)
After a search of the SS Glicker, all the survivors were brought on board and given medical attention and fed. Space Oddity was sent to the brig.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Final%20Vote/snapshot_d513bcdc_758cf2a8.jpg)
She had to face justice when she got home. There would be no easy way out for her.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Final%20Vote/snapshot_d513bcdc_358cf89e.jpg)
After the return home the six survivors were questioned and released. The investigation found that they were not to be held responsible for the actions on the ship, it would all be placed on the killer. Space Oddity was put on death row as a serial killer. She enjoyed fame and popularity among the other inmates and for once, she was happy.

Captain Pat arranged for the six survivors to have a stress free vacation in his lake house for as long they needed it. They were also given lifetime passes for future cruises.

Congratulations, you caught the killer.
Survivors: BodhiBloodWave , Cobra,  Huckbuck, Inkling,  Met, Neoadept
The winners of Sim Cruise!
