Murder At The Castle
A Colourful, Medieval Murder Mystery
Our new online virtual murder mystery game Murder in the Red Room is now available here. You can run it yourselves or we can run it for you.
Style: Fairly Participative.
Lord Berkley has invited you to a grand feast at his castle. You will be a medieval lord or lady, baron or knight, prince or queen. Soon, you will become involved in high-level court politics, low-down skulduggery, crafty negotiating and perhaps even murder.
Helped by an array of amusing actor characters, guests also apply themselves to the task of identifying the biggest villain in the castle. And, depending on what their fellow courtiers think of them, they may become the new Master or Mistress of the Order of Righteous Nobles.
Murder at the Castle concludes with each team offering their solution, the wicked perpetrator being apprehended and prizes being given to those whose wit or intelligence has most impressed. It is a Medieval version of our High Society plot.
The plot lends itself well to being put in a Medieval settings: a venue like Coombe Abbey or Ashdown Park. We’ve also run it in hyper-modern hotels for guests who are still in their work clothes. It still works fine!

“In God’s name, what does it all mean?” I asked. “It means murder,” said he, stooping over the dead man.
