The convention is this weekend, and the first part of the tournament (which will be GMed by others as well as me) is finished - but I still need to make some notes for the final. I would apreciate any input!
Here´s the setting:
The players have hired to investigate the murder of a young maid at the Lancre castle, as the whiches of the town are away on a trip. As Part One of the adventure ends, the players were told that a girl who had been helping them earlier has been accused of the murder. They are told by another ally (Shawn Ogg as it happens), that the girl was with him that nigh and so she could not have been the killer.
In the final, I really want to "force" the players to think and discuss the case in character. I had an idea about making them the jury, and forcing them to remain in a room until they had decided who the killer was. Another idea was to give them 24 hours (or similar) until the girl would be executed. Ideally, I want to end the adventure with a courtroom scene. I don´t want to give out too much info here -such as who the killer is - as some players might have livejournal accounts. :)
Any suggestions, ideas or comments are welcome.
