A Shakespearean Murdery Mystery. Light hearted larp for summer.
Alas, poor Shakespeare here lies done to death
By hands unknown his life away was borne
His stopped heart echoes his silent breath
His characters alone remain to mourn
Though the artist is slain, his works extend
Bright heroes whose lives his art attested
Now gather they to learn from Will's own pen
In whose name title to the plays vested
Lover, fighter, lady and thane, rare sprite
Each hope to receive the playwright's gift
Each seek to diminish the other's right
Or learn which other set Will's life adrift
Come, open-hearted and open-handed
Depart enriched, or a killer branded
Hear ye, hear ye! By order of Theseus, Duke of Athens, ye are hereby summoned to the reading of ye Last Wille of William Shakespeare, poet and playwright, recently discovered slain by unknown causes. Shakespeare's Legacy includes the title to his complete works, which some believe may one day have value.
Ye events of ye reading shall begin on December 10, at 2pm, at Petone Community House. A memorial service shall be held, followed by a wake, and ye reading shall commence precisely at 4:30 pm.
Claimants receiving this summons are below listed in order of rank. Any who fail to appear at ye reading shall forfeit all claim to Shakespeare's works henceforth.
Note well that all weapons are forbidden at the reading of the wille, and any who brings such will be immediately disinherited.
