Dr.Fistbeard will take the lead and go to examine the corpse to see if there is any useful information to be gathered or found around said corpse.

Kira Frazer looks around the lobby and back at her co-detectives. Sighing, she barges through the admission turnstiles and makes her way over to the entrance of the security room and exclaims:

Woo! Roll theme song!

Today has not been a good day for Hildibrand Manderville, agent of enquiry and inspector extraordinaire. His trustworthy companion, Nashu, wandered off to fetch lunch and has somehow mysteriously ended up in the Far East because her sense of direction is as impressive as a Lalafell is tall. There's also the fact that he was accosted and hounded by certain members of the Ishgardian church today, because apparently communing with friendly gentlemen zombies is considered "heresy" or something. What is the world coming to when amicable fraternising with some animate rotting corpses is considered ungentlemanly? Ah well, despite all that, he mustn't tarry, for there is a crucial case to solve today and it will use up every ounce of his ingenuity and brain power. Stop snickering at the back.

Unfortunately for him, he had consumed an excessive amount of rolanberry juice today, meaning his bladder is close to bursting. Hardly a fortuitous omen nor a proper way for a gentleman to begin this investigation. Alas, nature calls and she has to be answered, lest he, Hildibrand Manderville, agent of enquiry and inspector extraordinaire, has to deign with the humiliation of urine-soaked trousers.

Hopping over the entrance barrier like the most graceful species of Chocobo, he gallantly sprints to the direction of the toilets. For some unfathomable reason, there's a hideous Moogle wearing Dutch clogs patrolling the entrance hall and the toilets are unlike anything he has ever seen. The sign outside clearly has both the male and female symbols, suggesting that this is a unisex bathroom, but it's just a regular row of cubicles inside with some sinks and taps! Where in Eorzea would catboys and female Lalas alike be allowed to answer the call of nature in one single washroom?! This museum is suspicious already and Hildibrand suspects that it's probably nothing to do with that giant corpse of a whale creature/the single embodiment of evil and death that so happens to be hanging from the rafters in the entrance hall.

Instantly he rushes to the farthest stall with the "I ♡ Yuna + Stefanie" graffiti scrawled on the door looking like it was done by a childlike Elezen. He lifts up the toilet lid and before he can unzip his trousers, his monocle somehow falls in. His face contorts into a hugely exaggerated look of shock and he instinctively reaches in to try and grab it...

Mitsindy heads straight to the Cloakroom and examines what appears to be Tifa's outfit. Changing into it was tempting, but she wasn't sure if she should. Instead, she walks over to the lockers and with her monkey wrench, attempts to open locker #7.

Shaisse just sighs at all of his fellow detectives running around like crazy seeing just kicking in doors that clearly are not locked and only one doing the smart thing and examining the body, Shaisse goes up to the person behind the reception desk to get their account of what happen tonight.

Before I begin I should make it clear that each time you observe an object you usually only uncover one clue (as in one clue is 'given' to you if it is there). Keep returning to the corpse or other objects at different times for a more complete picture.

There may be some clues which are not 'given' to you by me, but might be visible in the images should you notice them and wish to pursue them.

Although you score points for clues I have decided that I will keep the scores 'hidden' during the course of the game and the values shall be revealed at the end.



Round 1:

Maps:
Click the maps to enlarge. For the clearest image open in a new tab.

Ground Floor:

Particulars:

Dr. Fistbeard examines the Mog Doe in the lobby. There appears to be an injury on the moogle's chest consistent with a bullet wound.

1J4MZ8z.png



Kira Frazer attempts to kick the door down...

OkiSywj.png


It fails. Her foot and herself are no longer on speaking terms.


Hildibrand Manderville retrieves his monocle from the toilet... Wet tissue paper clings to it but begins to disintegrate fairly quickly.

vxRHzpI.png



Mitsindy easily opens locker #7 as this particular locker does not appear to be locked, ironic though that may sound.

Bb1ELSl.png


It contains a few personal objects (a holy cross and a Pepe action figure) alongside two posters.
@Mitsuki - Mitsindy has received the Holy Cross and Pepe action figure as items in her inventory. Hold onto them and use them wisely! They might cure future status ailments or solve a future puzzle!



Shaisse asks the receptionist for his account of what happened.

S3e1obS.png


This is what Mogsam the receptionist has to say:

A detective? Meh. I guess these things happen, kupo.
Well I never actually saw any murder since I'm glued to this desk, kupo! I've been here so long I don't know if I'm even joking anymore, kupo! I did
hear some loud clanking though, I think. Maybe before the murder... I- I can't be sure, kupo! Shortly after that everybody seemed to be quite panicked, kupo!


Three new detectives have joined the investigation.

Dirk and Gerry Adams and Detective Pepe.

Dr.Fistbeard after finding nothing else to account for in inspecting the dead body decides to go into the room that is left of him, he sees a variety of objects on display and happens to see a sign saying he's in the room of ancient creatures. One display in particular catches his attention and he inspects a giant green griffin like bird creature looking down as if it wants to eat an odd greeinsh imp looking thing. So he decides to inspect this object to see if there is anything that might be of use to him.

"Ugh!"

Kira Frazer storms off and makes her way over to the restrooms. Upon entering she notices the scribbles on the doors.

"Aerith...s....lives... Really now?"

Frazer checks out the inside of the Aeris Lives stall and lifts the toilet seat.

Thal's Balls! That was a disgusting venture. Whoever used this toilet stall before certainly did a number on the toilet bowl given the exorbitant remnants of disintegrating toilet paper left piled at the bottom. The last time he has had to something as disgusting as this was when he had to rescue a dozing Nashu from the tendrils of a certain giant purple talking perverted octopus...or at least he had tried to. He was apparently knocked out when one naughty tentacle sent him plummeting head-first into the earth. His father always insisted that he single-handedly launched the octopus literally all the way to the Moon.

But we're digressing here! I just needed to quickly say something mildly interesting about the Manderville family just as Hildibrand here is emptying his bladder, cleaning up after himself and giving his monocle a good old rinse. A rinse is likely not enough given where it's been, but to part from this monocle is like parting from his life's calling. There is a mystery to solve and only one inspector to do that job this evening. He mustn't tarry!

Hildibrand sprints out of the toilets and into the entrance hall. That emergency toilet break came at such an inopportune moment, because he has yet to even formally introduce his presence to the current denizens of the museum this evening. With the theme song blaring from seemingly nowhere, Hildibrand flexes and contorts his envious manly Highlander body, ensuring that everyone in the vicinity can see the glorious resplendence of his trademark Manderville pose. With a booming voice he declares:

"Near or far, high or low, wherever the wind blows!
Be it a troubled ser, a maiden scorned or a slain Moogle!
I, Hildibrand Manderville, agent of enquiry and inspector extraordinaire,
shall not rest until the shadows masking this villain are banished!"

To top it off, he makes his signature grin, emanating a twinkle of light so radiant that it momentarily blinds the entire room as the theme song crescendos.

Now, where on earth has that suspicious pink Moogle with the Dutch clogs he had seen on his way to the toilets wandered off to? It won't do for Hildibrand to leave a stone unturned, and that Moogle looked as shifty as they come. He hurtles past the corpse of the victim into the room helpfully labelled 'ANCIENT CULTURES'.

Aha! He has found the pink bugger in those ridiculously oversized clogs. He approaches this character and clears his throat.

"Pray excuse me, young lady! I come seeking clues to lead me to the vicious villain responsible for this homicide just behind me out in the hall. I noticed you were near the toilets just minutes before. Have you perchance encountered anything suspicious in there or on your way out?"

Detective Pepe walked into the smelliest of smelly museums. He wanted to speak with the receptionist but when Pepe noticed a particular stench he hadn't experienced since his childhood, which was strange since he was a detective, he was spell-bound. He walked through the receptionist room and followed the smell Pepe smelled with his smell-holes... The smell you ask, dear reader... It was the smell of death and like I said, he last smelled that smell when he was just a wee froggy, waking in the middle of the night to find his frog-family being eaten by a one-eyed opossum. That dastardly smell stayed with Detective Pepe for years, even now he would have to drown himself in booze to escape the torturous memories. "No booze today, Pepe." Pepe said to himself.

He saw an incredibly handsome ginger examining the body.

"That incredibly handsome ginger is examining the body." said Detective Pepe. "I should check it out, too. Like detectives do."

Pepe twirled over to the body and examined the corpse like he said he would do but the intimidating ginger had already left. With the sexy distraction gone, Pepe turned his gaze back to the body.

"A bullet wound. Interesting." But Pepe noticed something else... a clue perhaps. He flipped over the collar of the moogle's shirt and examined the weird T mark on his chest. "Is that normal?" Pepe said out loud, hoping someone far smarter could assist him. Silence... just like when his super hot frog-model girlfriend stayed silent after Pepe proposed to her many years ago.

"This must be an initial... like what Zorro does when he puts a Z everywhere."


(That counts as 'Moving to a location' and a 'action' move, right? :wacky:)

Mitsindy panicks at the sight of a creepy leprechaun lounging around her. With her ass up in the air (for apparently she's stuck walking around like so) she hurries over to the Gift Shop, and examines a bunch of Brahne heads. "Are they plushies...or something more sinister?", she wonders. With her monkey wrench in hand, she reaches out to grab one...

There is writing on it which reads thus:

[Text lost] and so that is what I learned. I am also very certain that the Lakshmi painting is also a fake, convincing though it is. If one should examine it one shall find [text lost]...

Kira-Mog responds:

WHY AM I NAKED, KUPO?!
Suspicious? I’m just looking around a museum and enjoying my music, kupo! What else should I be doing, hmmm?! OKAY OKAY! Yes, I went to the toilet, kupo. Is that a crime?!
If you see my
ipod somewhere can you give it back to me, kupo? I dropped it and now I’m CRAZY MAD, KUPO.
WHY AM I STILL NAKED, KUPO?!!

Pepe examines the Mog Doe’s chest area.

After a very thorough examination it turns out that the peculiar mark is merely a poorly defined chest, perhaps a defect.

He doesn’t discover any clues there but he isn’t complaining.

Noticing that there was an odd trail of what seemed to be water footprint in the main hall Dr.Fistbeard exits the room and decided to move to the aquarium and does so quite stealthy that no one notices his movements, upon his entrance to the aquarium he notices some strange half dressed creature wearing a pom pom hat and asks him if he knows of anything that happened or has anything of use that might make traversing the museum easier.

"Is there no end to this villain's nefariousness?!" cries Hildibrand, aghast at the thought that this murderer must have also ambushed this poor Moogle and stripped her naked, leaving her with nothing but a pair of giant Dutch clogs and mysteriously what appears to be a roll of good old Edam cheese tucked under her wee little arm. And now this modern musical contraption she calls an 'iPod' is also missing? A dropped item surely does not stay in one place, not with a fiend likely still lurking around, haunting this museum's halls. This criminal is not only a murderer, but a thief! A robber!

Hildibrand flexes once more, eager to dazzle this poor undignified maiden with the assuring spectacle of his manly body on display.

"Fear no more, little one. I will not rest until this larcenous pomslayer is brought to justice. To the very foundations of this establishment I shall hunt for him. Every trail will be explored. No waste paper basket shall be left unturned, for I, Hildibrand Manderville, agent of enquiry and inspector extraordinaire, sans my trustworthy assistant this evening however, will not rest until the mysteries enshrouding this crime are lifted and the villain is brought to firm justice!"

With renewed vigour and a sense of duty, Hildibrand rockets out of the room and up the flights of stairs, leaving a trail of dust in his wake and propelling enough force to send the nude Kiramog spinning on the spot like a Looney Tunes character. Once upstairs, he barges past the giant monkey-rat thing with the silly crown and red cape before coming across what appears to be a set of railings. Hildibrand leans against the railings and peers down, noticing firstly that he is standing directly above the entrance hall of the museum...and secondly, WHAT IN THE NAME OF NALD'THAL IS THIS? This giant whale...creature thing appears to be tethered above the entrance hall from this very floor by the beams. Fascinated by it and wondering what clues this dangling corpse must possess, Hildibrand leans over intently.

As if the Twelve are conspiring against him today, his monocle once again elects to take flight...and by take flight, I mean it's fallen off yet again just as it did back in the toilets. Now partially sighted, alarmed by his escaping monocle yet again and failing to notice that GIANT YELLOW BOARD with the statement to all visitors warning them not to climb on the beams, Hildibrand instinctively leaps onto the closest beam in a vain attempt to catch the monocle before gravity makes a messy spectacle of things.


Too late. Gravity effortlessly tugs it straight down to the floor below, with the impact against the floor shattering it partially upon contact. The sound is rather audible. It's very probable that this can be just about heard by everyone downstairs. Admittedly, the craftsmanship of Ala Mhigan refugees in Ul'dah is admittedly...lacking when it comes to quality assurance. How unfortunate.

Ah well, at least Hildibrand himself is safely perched on one of the beams that is helping to keep this giant whale corpse thing attached to the ceiling and not crashing down to the floor below. What could possibly go wrong?

Kira Frazer drops the piece of paper.

"Blegh! Why did I even pick that up to begin with?! ....Lakshmi... Huh."

Brushing herself off, Kira Frazer makes her way over to the main lobby. She looks around but doesn't see any paintings near her. 'Better check upstairs, maybe' She makes her way over and walks up the staircase.

"What the..." She mumbles under her breath while raising her eyebrow at the weird looking... creature with a cape. Deciding it's best to not interact, she makes her way around and walks into the Art Gallery. Glancing over the paintings, she stops at the one where the lady is wearing a red dress. Kira Frazer raises her eyebrow.

"Hm...?" Leaning in closer, she takes a closer look at said painting.

Gerry exits the cloakroom, and enters the main lobby wherein he sees the dead body: "JAYSUS WART DA FUACK IS DAT TING DER?"

He says, with a gig and a shot in the air with his AK. He had to use his AK; today was not a good day(See Ice Cube's "Today was a good day" for Reference)
