  • Nancy Drew: Murder on the R.M.S. Titanic

    Hello, I am an avid fan of Nancy Drew with an idea for the next greatest sleuth story! I have been thinking of this ever since we went back in time to the 1930’s. So I felt, Nancy needs to go back in time to another time period. And what historical event is more famous than the sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic? That is where Nancy must go! So here it is:

    ╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬
    Nancy Drew: Murder on the R.M.S. Titanic
    ╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬
    Setting
    ╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬

    The location is aboard the transatlantic ocean liner, R.M.S. Titanic. The area where gameplay begins is in Nancy’s stateroom which is in First Class. In the stateroom there is a bedroom, a parlor, and windows which you can look out of. There is also a closet that you can change clothes into. There are more staterooms as well. Ned’s stateroom, which is like Nancy’s, and Bess and George’s stateroom which looks like Nancy and Ned’s but with two bedrooms. You can also visit each of the suspect’s staterooms and the victim’s. One in 1st Class, one in 3rd Class, and one officer’s quarters. You can also visit many public areas. The main area of travel is the Grand Staircase. In the Grand Staircase is a map of the ship so you can move about the decks and go through hallways to get to areas. Other areas are the 1st Class Dining Saloon where dinners are conducted, and Nancy and her friends can sit at different suspects’ tables. Another area is the boat deck where the lifeboats are. Nancy can also sneak into 3rd Class and Officer areas. She can also go into the Lounge, the Swimming Pool, the Turkish Baths, the Squash Quarts, the Reading and Writing Room, the Elevator, the Reception Room, and the Pursers office. Plus hallways and such you need to escape. The time starts on April 13th, 1912 and ends on April 15th, 1912.

    The Beginning
    ╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬

    Nancy and her friends are enjoying a lovely cruise aboard the R.M.S. Titanic when Lord Henry Duncan, esteemed oil tycoon, is found dead in the cabin next door. The Chief Medical Doctor declares the death to be accidental, until Nancy finds a bullet hole in her wall. She recalls a shot the previous night but with no gun to be found Nancy knows the death was no accident. Teaming up with her best friends Bess and George, and he longtime lover, Ned Nickerson, she is in a race against time to solve the crime of the decade.

    The Mission
    ╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬

    Your mission as Detective Drew is to solve who murdered Lord Henry Duncan and you must do it before the culprit can escape! For we all know of the Titanic’s fate and Nancy must find our killer before they can escape unobserved on a lifeboat, or before Nancy joins the 1,500 victims of the great R.M.S. Titanic.

    Characters
    ╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬╬

    1. Nancy Drew- of course our fun and spunky teen detective is involved. She is traveling to New York City on a vacation when disaster strikes!
    2. Ned Nickerson- lover of Nancy Drew, Ned can flirt with female characters to get information, and he can also sneak into other classes with much more ease.
    3. Bess and George Fayne- best friends of Nancy, they can distract people and find out information that Nancy needs to know.
    4. Lord Henry Duncan- the victim who was killed mysteriously. Nancy believes he was killed by a gun shot, but there are no bullets to be found on the body. So Nancy tries to find the cause of death (but she knows it as malicious because of the misfire of the gun). Lord Henry is an old oil tycoon who was making the crossing for vacation.
    5. Emily Withernotch- a socialite Southern girl who was making the crossing with her fiancée, Lord Henry Duncan. She was in all senses, a gold digger. She will inherit quite a lot of money due to her fiancées death from a prenup that she had him sign the night of his death.
    6. Marcus Débonair- a wealthy French singer, Marcus is suave and handsome. He has a charm about him but was in love with Emily Withernotch. Nancy seems to think he could’ve killed Lord Henry to finally have Emily. On the night of the murder he left dinner right after Lord Henry and was not seen till morning.
    7. Curly Marvis- a 3rd Class man who is very nice and intelligent. Nancy becomes friends with him and he helps her snoop on his bunkmate, Ed Hatty.
    8. Ed Hatty- a shady 3rd Class Irishman who was cheated by Lord Henry for a tiny spot of land in Texas which had massive oil amounts. Ed put all of his savings into the down payment for the land but Lord Henry got it at the last second, so Ed put all his money into a trip on the Titanic to find Lord Henry and get his “just rewards”.
    9. Liza McCathy- a hardworking mother of four children, Liza befriends Nancy and in return for food for her children, Liza and her children help Nancy blend into 3rd Class.

                  I don't really understand how Nancy could be present on the titanic since she wasn't invented until the 1930s, where she is an eighteen year old. She wouldn't have even been born yet...

                    Love the Titanic! Sign me up.
                    I know what Secrets Can Kill. I did Stay Tuned For Danger.
                    I read the Message in a Haunted Mansion. I found the Treasure in the Royal Tower.
                    I watched the Final Scene. I learned the Secret of the Scarlet Hand.
                    I met the Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake. I rode the Haunted Carousel.
                    I faced the Danger on Deception Island. I discovered the Secret of Shadow Ranch.
                    I was aboard the Last Train to Bluemoon Canyon. I survived the Danger by Design.
                    I captured the Creature of Kapu Cave. I tracked the White Wolf of Icicle Creek.
                    I dug up the Legend of the Crystal Skull. I unmasked the Phantom of Venice.
                    I experienced the Haunting of Castle Malloy. I paid the Ransom of the Seven Ships.
                    I heeded the Warnings at Waverly Academy. I followed the Trail of the Twister.
                    I saw the Shadow at the Water's Edge. I was released from the Captive Curse.
                    I relied on the Alibi in Ashes. I was in the Tomb of the Lost Queen.
                    I stopped the Deadly Device. I vanquished the Ghost of Thornton Hall.
                    I heard the Silent Spy. I retrieved the Shattered Medallion.
                    I entered the Labyrinth of Lies. I sailed the Sea of Darkness.
