Murder at the Dunmore Lodge

Murder at the Dunmore Lodge

The weather service predicted a record snowfall and, for once, they were right. Thirty-six inches of snow has fallen in the last 24 hours and it is still snowing. To make matters worse two separate avalanches have wiped out the eastern and western arms bridges. The only sign of civilization between the two bridges is the historic Dunmore Lodge, once a grand old Lodge catering to the elite of society it is now little more than a glorified bed and breakfast. But now this Lodge has suddenly become the difference between life and death for anyone trapped between the two bridges.

One by one the newly stranded begin arriving at the Dunmore and snatching up the wealth of available rooms. The most famous of the stranded guests is Senator Alexander Khun who was on his way to Washington D.C. to announce his intention to run for President. But the following morning Senator Khun is found with a knife in his chest, very much dead. Two realizations come very quickly to the minds of the remaining guests: the murderer must be someone at the hotel and, thanks to the ongoing storm and impassable bridges, they are all trapped there with him ... or is it her?

This game is meant to be acted out like a Dinner Theatre if front of any number of guests. Whether it is actually done as a dinner theatre or in a more informal party setting is entirely up to the discretion of the host. The game setting is a quaint country Lodge in Vermont, far removed from any urban center.
