hello one and all!

The Setting:
O.K., the year is...well 2009, and there is an old fashioned dinner party (like the one in the movie Clue based on the game) where nothing "new age" is allowed into the party at Thatcher Manor. There are 6 guests at the party with 3 servants (including the cook) and a host by the name of Thadeus. the names of the people at the party are as follows:

The Residence:
Thadeus - the host of the party with a taste for 20's themed parties
Sofie - the rather beautifle maid-servant to the head of the houshold of the manor
Jeeves - the butler for the manor, think's his name is a bit cliche for his occupation

The Guests:
Detective Spencer - the greatly known detective of English decent with the abilty to solve any case, though for this one he might need the aid of you, yes YOU.
Fredward Desmund - the novelist whose books end up killing their occupants (the characters) and leaves the reader to figure out the murderer, like in Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None
Claire Savanah - the former heiress to a multi-million $ company that supports the causes (i.e. charity events) of the Thatcher Manor and has now inherited the company and was always rather supercilious.
Naomi Spencer - the lucky winner in a contest irrelevant to what must be solved. She is shy at a 5'8" (english system) but is rather talkative if the occasion hits her.
Augustice "Gus" Maylor - the representative of the PTP organization (preserve the past). he is usually quite polite until someone derides him about his love for antiques and or when someone belittles a priceless artifact. he is there on account that he recieved an invite and that the house is filled with priceless artifacts from the early century and beyond that.

The Plot:
Dinner has been served. Thadeus and the guests have retired to the lounge when the doorbell is heard. Of coarse, Jeeves, the butler, answers the door. Immediately after the door is opened, a man staggers in the foyer and dies on the floor in the middle of the room. It is up to you, yes YOU, and the detective to solve 3 things:

1) Who killed the man

2) Why they killed him

and 3) Who is the man?

The Rules:
Throughout the investigation you, the helpers of Detect. Spencer, will be able to question the guests as the night goes on (it is night until the mystery is solved or the last hint is given). You will also be able to ask yes or no questions that relate to the context of hints or the infromation at the beginning of the topic. One last thing, you cannot just guess at the answers to the questions, you have to provide some logic to your answer. Now solve this case!

Another one of these!? I think two at once may be a little difficult--too many posts to read!

Anyways, has the detective gathered everyone into one room yet? If not, I would ask him to do so. If so, I would like to ask the group if anyone knew this man that died. Oh, and what indications do we have as to the cause of death?

YAY! a mystery. I sort of believe the butler did it! The butler is always guilty. Maybe the butler killed the man beacuse he was too new age and would upset Thaddeus. Or maybe one of the guests half killed the man and he staggered to the party and then died. Am I on the right track?

yes everyone has been gathered into the foyer after Jeeves, who was in a flustered manner, announced that a man was dead in the foyer after he staggered in. as for the other 2 q's: none recolect his facial features; the man appears to have been a victim of a ruptured artery on his right temple. he appears to have been bludgeoned.

*also refereing to the help, the cook is just called the cook. every guest and all the residence are in the foyer along with the victim*

well you're right in that the strange man was half dead upon entering the manor but you must provide some sort of logic to your guesses. and no he was not killed because he was to new age for the party because he was neither invited nor was it his party.

nice try though but it's not always the butler :D

ok here is everything up to date. A man staggers into the foyer and dies. none of the guests don't know how the man died but he apears to have taken a hit to the temple and bled to death.

News flash!
the time is now 10:00 PM and the power has gone out. Darkness is everywhere. then there's a scream. it sounds like Naomi. what happened just now?

*also please note that any1 can come at any time*

are the guests, the victim, the host, the cook, and the butler the only people involved in this?
