In the grand ballroom of Retribution Manor, costumed guests are gossiping at a masquerade party. Everyone wants to know: “Who invited us here?” “Who assigned us our mask colors?” “Who would throw such a lavish party in a haunted house?” No one has answers—they only know that they were instructed to be here, or their secrets would be revealed to the world.
One by one, they are called to the study to meet with the unknown host. After each meeting, a subdued guest shuffles out, muttering that “somebody should kill that guy!” The party continues with guests sullenly milling about and waiting for the host’s next ugly surprise.
The clock strikes midnight. On the twelfth chime, the study door flies open and a man cloaked in black stumbles out. “One of you did this! One of you—” He gasps and falls to the ground, dead, with a knife protruding from his back. His mask falls too, revealing the face of Ispil DeBeens, local historian and investigative reporter.
A cold wind blows through the room; the doors slam and lock shut. Howling is heard from every corner. The guests are trapped here with the ghosts that infest the manor! They stare at each other, wondering which of them had a secret so precious that it led to murder. YOU are one those guests. DID YOU DO IT??
