  • Mogabod and his daughter, Mogette, recently found a strange one-legged man on a deserted island and rescued him and lent him clothes.

Raptorbo decided to move in front of the Fish'N'Chips store and question the green frog looking thing, for the very least if it gives an unsatisfactory he can begin to eat it. He does begin his inquiry by asking if this frog looking thing noticed anything out of the ordinary and then proceeds to let out a low growl to let the thing i question know that they better give a proper answer.

Chavvy Gerry heads to the left hand side, to stare at the couple together in the sand.

"JAYSUS DESE LADS R RIDIN IN DE SAND, FUCK HACK A DEM!" Gerry declared proudly. Gerry was an avid supporter of sex-positivity and, as such, celebrated acts of public sex.

"DID YE SEE DAT RED-HOT SCORCHER WHO MRDERED SOME LAD?" Gerry asked timidly, awaiting a reply from the post-coitus couple. He hoped they realised that "red-hot scorcher" refers to a criminal whom is quite obvious in what they do.

Tobias cycles over to the three people playing with the decapitated head. If they have no qualms about playing with a decapitated head, they'd be willing to murder this moogle and toss him in the ocean.

Tobias approaches them and lets out a loud roar.

"He's not decapitated, sir," fake Zazu informs him. "I'm pretty sure he's just buried." Fake Zazu swoops down and sits on the buried moogle's head. "Did you three see anything strange today?'

"Ghastly!" exclaims Count Cluckbeak, surveying the mutilated corpse of this poor, deceased...poor person.

Though a venerated inspector, Count Cluckbeak is a member of the nobility, and as such has built a name for himself as the Bane of Fowl Play in fine aristocratic circles, scuppering the plans of nefarious lower class criminals with the audacity to hatch and execute any insidious plans designed to harm the aristocracy. He never signed up to investigate the murder of some likely penniless urchin on the ghastly beach of some equally ghastly seaside town with its socially and economically underprivileged people. Cluckbeak cannot help but ponder the possibility of this assignment being nought but an act of petty vengeance by the Chief Superintendent, whose wife he may or may not have fornicated in secret...

Haughtily, Cluckbeak diverts his gaze from the corpse to survey the surrounding area. Good grief. This town is the physical manifestation of misery itself. There are not even any butlers in smart black dress suits carrying trays of exotic cocktails for patrons. How do people live in such a town without the strong urge to throw themselves off a pier and never re-emerge back on shore? In fact, he wagers the victim is more fortunate than anything. If he's unfortunate enough to be a resident of this hellhole, he would ask to be murdered as well, just so he can be mercifully wrestled away and taken to a better place.

Cluckbeak's exceptional eyesight allows him to fixate on one particular peculiar character - at least he looks peculiar from this distance. There is a Moogle in black, just yards away from the disgusting public beach lavatories. Unlike a certain lower class Gerry Adams, Count Cluckbeak prudishly denounces any outward display of sex or skin (even on a beach), so ordinarily he should be relieved to see a gentleman deign to dress properly even on such a warm day, but as this is a hellhole of a town where everyone here is a chav, a man in a suit by the beach staring at a corpse is too conspicuous not to be suspicious.

Marching on like an overly stuffed vulture, Cluckbeak proudly wanders over to the Moogle in black.

"I say, YOU THERE. Lower class gentleman, do excuse me. I am the decorated Count Clarence Cluckbeak, Bane of all Fowl Play. No doubt you have heard of me and my many exploits in the Daily Pom newspaper. I have a murder case to swiftly solve and you, dear sir, could be the font of vital information to help me (and only me) accomplish the job. Do you know anything about this horrendous crime?"

It was the cavalier nature of his fellow man the struck him the most as he scuffled his way through the sand.

They came all the way out here for a day on the beach. Why let such a trivial thing such as murder keep them from what seems to be some sort of sandcastle building competition..

He was numb to the sight of death. Long removed from Saturday morning grind, he had become one of the most renowned detectives of his day. A career he only truly adopted as a desperate maneuver to find his long lost love, Carmen San Diego. Was it the job? Or was he just used to the emptiness that gazed back at him in his reflection?

There it stood before him, for all the world to see. Surely they did see it, but did they see it like he did? Was it a trick, a trap, just a juvenile jest, or simply scribbled by the lowest bidder?
OGAB studied the Nippynuts sign very carefully.

Round 1:

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


Main beach:
Map Whitnut Beach - Round 1.png



Particulars:

The Raptorbo growls at the Sid the Sahagin themed rubbish bin outside the 'Fish n' Chips' shop.

Raptorbo - Round 1.5.png


It is not very effective.

He encounters a lot of half-eaten fish and chips, greasy paper, ketchup and mushy peas. It is up to him whether or not he engages with it further before moving...

-

As Chavvy Gerry Adams congratulates the sandy couple it becomes apparent (to most people, at least) that they are actually sand sculptures.

Gerry Adams - Round 1.png


Phidias Morrowsee (the sand sculptor responsible for sculpting Barry the Behemoth and the Cheerleader’s struggle) sneaks up behind Gerry and says the following:

You observe the famous wrestle, kupo…

Grains are like cells. Dead apart, but joined they stoke the fires of life, kupo!

Look, and
you shall see what can be!
-

Tobias and Fake Zazu engage with the moogle family (who are pulling a sand-based practical joke on the dad), wondering if they have witnessed anything strange...

Tobias - Round 1.5.png


The vulnerably positioned dad, Kupan, responds with the following:

Strange? Yes, kupo! A dinosaur on a unicycle wearing a jumper cycled towards us, and he has a talking bird, kupo!
But if you mean the 'murder', don't believe everything you hear! We were enjoying a good family day out at the beach, kupo... I won't let idiots ruin this for my kids. Are we sure it was murder? I'd say he had an accident, kupo!
Those types are always getting cuts and bruises!
-

Count Cluckbeak walks towards Father Pompous and asks if he knows anything about the murder...

Cluckbeak - Round 1.png


Father Pompous sighs and then replies as follows:

Kupo…. A soul was lost today, that is true.... He'd be fortunate if he is allowed into the Blessed Boughs after the lifestyle he led, kupoooo.... People like him usually roast in front of the Fire of Damnationnn..... If he had allowed me to sprinkle the holy dew on his forehead to sweeten his sins then his nuts would be safe, kupo. His foolish actions shall help me to instruct others and keep them from straying from the true path.
-

OG Angry Bird examines the 'Nippynut's Nudist Beach' sign.

OG Angry Bird - Round 1.png


There is a paintbrush covered in pink paint underneath the sign....

It is added to Angry Bird's inventory.

You may all now post your next moves!

"AYE AYE DEY ARE BLEEDIN DOPES DE ARE, JAYSUS" said Gerry, exasperated at his fault. Perhaps, Gerry thought to himself, the person controlling him could pay some more attention?

In any case, Gerry spotted an abandoned arcade north of him. Nothing bad ever happens in abandoned places, Gerry mused delightfully to himself, before setting off towards it.

"ARCADES R BLEEDIN WHOPPER SO DEY R. PLAY DEDLY GAMES DER" Gerry announced, giggling as if he was a school-girl.

It wasn't much to go on. It was evident that the sign had been painted on recently, but that only bordered on coincidence.

A fraud. That's all I am.

He would never admit it, but the truth was that he didn't even remember his greatest success. He recalled distinctly setting out to solve the murder in the museum, but all he really recollected was the congratulations, the belt ceremony. For the life of him, he couldn't remember solving the crime at all. Worse, he had no idea how to get the belt off. To be sure, he had been trying, but to no avail.

He had made his way to the pier, barely noticing he had done it. Looking down the entire way, one foot in front of the other. It was probably the only reason why he had glimpsed it. The fishing rod was unattended. As he slowly reeled in the line, a memory began to unwind in his mind like a spool of string.

When the hell have I ever spoken to a kraken?

After failing to get a taste of flesh from his presumed target, Rapterbo if feeling very irritated, he then notices a aquatic like person holding a trident nearby. Walking over to this person Raptorbo look at the person, then his trident and growls and looks to the ground trying to convince the stranger to drop it. He then gets ready to peck the person of they do not comply and asks them if they have seen anything that might be a clue for this murder.

He could listen to Father Pompous prattle on about how the victim's soul is currently now being sexually assaulted by Ifrit in the Bowl of Embers and whipped by Diabolos, but if there's one thing that depresses Count Cluckbeak more than poor people it's religion. If he is forced to listen to any more of this man's inane prattling, he'd want Ramuh in the sky to smite him with a bolt of lightning right here and right now. The Bane of Fowl Play knows when to beat a tactical retreat.

But how did this man know anything about the victim's allegedly sinful lifestyle? Were they acquaintances? Were they on familiar terms? Did he have a hand in the murder as part of his extremist notion of cleansing a town of sin? It's all very possible, but this would require further questions to be asked and Count Cluckbeak is adamant that he shall pursue no such thing until he samples a strong swig of the finest Bordeaux brandy possible in this godforsaken town. Though it's equally possible that Father Pompous is simply calling this town and its residents a filthy den of sinners. The latter is certainly evident.

It has just occurred to him that no one has yet to inspect the victim's corpse. How was he murdered? Was he indeed even murdered?

Conscious of the fact that Father Pompous is now full on proselytising (something about how the only the Grace of Ifrit can cleanse with fire the pernicious influence of the She-Devil Shiva), Cluckbeak hastily waddles his way back down to the beach, paying little heed to the absurdity of a dinosaur atop a unicycle.

With a clumsy belly flop, he miraculously manages to haul his entire body weight over the cordons and land on the sand directly in front of the victim's corpse. This is certainly not Count Cluckbeak's first ever time coming in contact with the deceased. His illustrious career has seen him inspect the corpses of a myriad of rich Moogles, half of whom were killed in some fashion by rivals or scions desiring a hefty inheritance windfall sum, or had choked to death on pretzels. He is not, however, used to seeing the corpse of a poor person. This...filthy urchin can't even leave behind a presentable body. Why must he stoop to such unfathomable lows just to win back the favour of the Chief Superintendant?

With a deep sigh, Cluckbeak carefully lays his eyes on the body, hoping to discern the type of wound and anything of particular on the person. Normally he has a butler/assistant to do this, but alas...

"If you think we're the strangest thing you've seen, there's a raptor over there trying to question a trash can," Fake Zazu told the moogle as he flapped his wings, flying into the air again.

Cuts and bruises, thought Tobias. I suppose it would have helped if I had examined the body. He roared at Fake Zazu.

"Oh, right," Fake Zazu said. "So it's my fault, even though you're the one who came cycling over like a mad dinosaur, roaring about severed heads?"

Tobias knew Fake Zazu had a point. But he still would have eaten the bird right then and there if he had longer arms. He wheeled around to head back to the body, ignoring the scream of the unfortunate moogle as the unicycle wheel left a tire burn on his face. He spied the impeccably dressed lavender bird standing over the body and picked up speed.

As he screeched to a halt on the opposite side of the body, he let out an ear-shattering roar. Fake Zazu swooped down and landed next to the moogle's body to look for clues.

Main Beach:

Map Whitnut Beach - Round 2.png


Particulars:

Chavvy Gerry Adams walks up to the abandoned Amusement Arcade.

Gerry Adams - Round 2.5.png


A notice on the door reads as follows:
Whitnut-on-Sea's Amusement Arcade has been closed for the foreseeable future due to extreme vandalism. We apologise for any disappointment.
Feel free to go and do something else instead. Whitnut-on-Sea is famous for its gorgeous beaches, fossil discoveries, cliff-side walks, and its towering white kuponut tree. Go and visit these!

Have a good day.
In addition to this someone has stapled a piece of card to the notice. The card depicts a weeping kupo nut along with the letters 'NUTS'.

-

OG Angry Bird reels in the fishing line....

OG Angry Bird - Round 2.7.png


A skeleton wearing very familiar clothing emerges from the sea... There is movement underneath.

OG Angry Bird can choose whether to continue reeling in the corpse, use it to attract the attention of other creatures, or plop it back into Davy Jones' locker and vow never to disturb these waters again.....

-

The Raptorbo orders Pomeidon Damphare to drop his trident and asks him about the murder.

Raptorbo - Round 2.png


Pomeidon Damphare shakes his trident in the air and roars the following:

AAAAAAOOO!!! NOBODY SEPARATES POMEIDON DAMPHARE FROM HIS TRIDENT, KUPO! BE GONE, FOUL BEAST! I AM THE 'GOD OF THE SEA'!!! I'VE BEEN TOO BUSY TRAINING FOR THE SURFING CHAMPIONSHIPS TO NOTICE ANYTHING UNUSUAL, KUPO.... THIS YEAR WILL BE MY YEAR! HUUUU!
-

Count Cluckbeak examines the body of the 'Mog Doe'.

Cluckbeak - Round 2.png


While noticing some very obvious injuries, Cluckbeak spies two starfish on the body of our victim. One on his crotch, the other on his cheek.

-

Tobias and Fake Zazu join Cluckbeak in the examination of the body.

Tobias - Round 2.5.png


Fake Zazu notices that there are remnants of a tattoo on his arm. The rest of the arm, along with much of his abdomen, are missing.

Making sure to hit Pomeidon in the head with his tail as he leaves growling yet again, Raptorbo makes his way to what looks like a kupo nut drawing on the wall pointing to the women's lavatory to see if there are any clues around.

Looking to the south, Gerry sees the sees a family playing on the beach. Gerry strolls over and politely asks who looks to be the mother: "AYE AYE ME AUL FLOWER, YE SEE DE DOPE WHO KILLED DAT LAD ON THE BEACH? ANYTHING AT ALL DAT LOOKS RED HOT?"

Gerry smiled slightly, nervously, as he asked.

"GOOD HEAVENS!" squawks Cluckbeak, paying little heed to the dinosaur on a unicycle and his annoying avian companion (that can actually fly, unlike him). What senseless carnage. This deceased Moogle may not hail from nobility and nor does he has a drop of aristocratic blood in his veins, but no one deserves to be killed this savagely. That wound can only be the work of some form of famished, fearsome aquatic apex predator, with jaws and teeth able to effortlessly tear through flesh and bones like a hot knife in a butler's hand cleanly slicing through the finest margarine.

Case solved, surely?

The poor Mog Doe was innocently swimming in these fetid waters when some form of apex predator like a shark started to smell the tantalising flavour of fresh, ripe Moogle flesh. The shark then attacked the victim with its mighty jaws, but the victim must have fought back somehow, understandably driven by a desire to preserve his life, only for his struggles to end in vain. The body must have then washed up on the beach and the shark retreated back into deeper waters, perhaps content with only a small snack for the time being.

Yup, that sounds perfectly reasonable enough a conclusion to make to draw a line under this case and have it filed to the right local authorities as a fatal shark attack. Blimey, to think this decrepit town's residents are still merrily enjoying themselves near these shark-infested waters. What has this world come to? It's almost like society is gradually changing and is now no longer the warm, familiar Victorian days of old where strict social hierarchies had to be obeyed and everyone knew their place, never forgetting to treat their betters with the utmost deference. Sigh...

For now, Cluckbeak can only ask for someone to corroborate his theory (and let's face it - his theory is so watertight that it only needs to be confirmed right now!). He glances around, keeping a sharp eye out for someone nearby who looks like a credible witness who must surely have witnessed this shark attack. And preferably someone who is close enough to avoid the need to waddle for more than five minutes just to get to them...

"You there, degenerate!" Cluckbeak storms to the foot of the lifeguard tower where atop is a buff, topless Moogle with a surfboard. "Surely you've seen the shark attack and what's happened to the deceased just over there. Why are you not commanding everyone to leave this beach at once?!"

"Tattoos...starfish," Fake Zazu mutters. "He must have been part of a fearsome surfer gang...or he was involved in some sort of weird orgy involving starfish."

There is a surfing contest going on. He must have been practicing when he met his untimely end. Tobias notices a moogle floating in a donut not far from the beach. He roars at Fake Zazu.

"Will you stop pretending like you can't talk? The roaring isn't fooling anyone. You can't wear a jumper, pretending to be civilized and then go around roaring at everyone."

Tobias snaps his jaws at him but Fake Zazu flies out of his reach. "Fine. I'm trying to project an image here but if you insist." Tobias makes a gesture towards the moogle. "Let's ask him if he's seen anything."

"Go ahead."

"I can't get my unicycle wet. It'll rust."

Fake Zazu sighs. "I knew that was a terrible idea for a birthday present." He flies over and hovers above the floating google. "Did you see what happened to that unfortunate moogle on the beach there?"

Round 3:

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


Main Beach:
Map Whitnut Beach - Round 3.png


Tourist Information Centre (discovered by OG Angry Bird):
Tourist Information - Round 3.png



Particulars:

Raptorbo turns around sharply, smacking Pomeidon Damphare to the ground with his tail.

Raptorbo - Round 3b.png


Pomeidon will be furious when he gets back to his feet...

Raptorbo examines the red markings on the wall near the public toilets.

Raptorbo - Round 3a.png


What could this graffito mean?

-

OG Angry Bird equips the corpse of Aerith as a macabre ventriloquist dummy.

OG Angry Bird - Round 3a.png


Angry Bird discovers a new area: Tourist Information Centre.

All players can now access this area without wasting a turn.

-

Gerry Adams interrogates Mrs. Kupan on the beach... He asks her if she witnessed who killed the 'Mog Doe', and if she saw anything 'red hot'.

Gerry Adams - Round 3.png


Mrs. Kupan responds with the following:

I wouldn't let my children bury my husband in the sand if I thought there was a murderer, kupo! The only red hot thing I've seen are the two lifeguards- Oh! No, kupo! I meant the sun has scorched them!
No, I've been too busy looking after my kids to notice a murderer...
The poor dead mog does seem to be familiar, kupo! I don't know who he is. We're just on a day out and aren't from around here... We're not even from this county, kupo!
-

Count Cluckbeak interrogates Damane Mogson regarding his shark attack theory.
(Just imagine Damane is standing on the steps - I ran out of time to draw them in big style!)

Cluckbeak - Round 3.png


Damane raises an eyebrow and responds as follows:

Huh?! Yes, we are the heart and soul of this very beach, kupo! Of course I know there is a shark. Sharks are a common sight over here. You just need to have the kuponuts to swim around them and you’ll be fine! If you flap about like a little girl then you are just asking to be chomped into two, kupo! The beach does not need to be evacuated as I know the shark can't possibly be the killer, kupo! I've been jumping the shark as a training exercise for ten years now and know for a fact that it only scavenges dead flesh, kupo... Unless, again, you flap about like a little girl.
-

Tobias cycles to the beach and Fake Zazu flies off to question the moogle in a rubber ring about the unfortunate fate of our 'Mog Doe'.

Tobias - Round 3a.png


The happy holidaymaker, Furchin Pomsnore, refuses to open his eyes but lazily says the following:

Hey... I did not see his death, kupo... I had my eyes closed... Just floating about... I did hear a shout at some point, kupo... I think it came from along the fossil beach? It wasn't clear but it sounded like "Thief!", kupo...
I must say, it is more peaceful now that he's gone! He used to splash me and bump into me all of the time, kupo! They all do!
