Murder on the Cocoanut Express
Hotel de Cocoanut is a quaint little hotel in Florida, if by "quaint" one means "makes up for its terrible service with lax bookkeeping and limited oversight." Also, it's filled with thieves, con men, and one giant mark... uh, I mean, wealthy patron.
If that sounds familiar, it's the premise of _The Cocoanuts_. Don't worry, we'll deviate from the Marx Brothers about five minutes into the game, when the wealthy patron is found murdered. All of you have secrets to hide, so it's up to you to figure out who killed her and why, before the coppers start digging into _everyone's_ secrets.
Set in Shadow Earth, in the 1920s.
While the base setting is taken from a slapstick movie, you do not have to be familiar with the movie, and the game itself is not slapstick so you may play a serious character if you wish. Despite mixing the name with a familiar mystery novel, I do not expect to use the novel's motives for characters in this game.
