I'll never make it, writing takes so long ! LOL I barely have time to work on one project... but I'm there in spirit !

My idea was to have the player be a CSI investigator and have to examine the objects lying around to discover who killed "Mr Black"... then come to a conclusion about who was the guilty party...

Examining things more than once would have turned up different info, at random...

Oh well...

Sounds pretty cool, but if time is a problem it's better to get any entry in than none at all. I probably won't do anything fancy myself, just stick to the straight descriptions unless I get some sudden last minute inspiration.

Only one entry received so far and it's the last day of February.

My entry has turned into a plan for a one room game of sorts. It probably won't make it by tonight.

Man, you guys all suck. You had a whole month and couldn't even write a few room descriptions! Why couldn't you be more like me and...oh, wait. Uh, on second thought let's just pretend this thread never happened. :blush:

I'd be willing to send in the completed descriptions I have written as more of a module if submissions were to still be accepted. If I'm reading this thread right, that would make two entries.

I now have two entries for this thrilling event. I will create the poll thread tomorrow, so anyone with an entry should send it in quickly.
