    After a couple of hours it was apparent that the detective was not coming or was simply very late. So Darth Caesar had everyone gather in the library of his huge house so he could greet them properly. The Cook had prepared coffee for this occasion. She handed it to the maid while she continued to cook. The maid gave it to the butler then the butler served it to the Millionaire. He picked a cup up off the tray and smelled it.

    "Mm, I've always loved the Cook's coffee, I've never tasted any like his."

    He then brought the cup up to his mouth and took a large drink. He winced as he swallowed and then cleared his throat.

    "A bit too bitter today though. Now i'm sure your all wondering why I've called you here today. In the letters I've sent you all I was rather vague about the threats to my life. Over the last few weeks I have been receiving letters saying that I will be killed unless I pay money to an unknown account, well I payed it and I noticed that the accounts of a couple of people in this room went up. I'm not pointing any fingers here, but I think one of you wants to kill me."

    And with that he brought his hand to his forehead and stumbled. He crashed to the ground with a thud. Everyone rushed to him, the doctor checked his pulse.

    "He's dead," stated the Doctor.

    Everyone in the room was shocked, some cried and some just looked at the body.

    "Should we just leave?" Asked Darth Caesar's brother.

    "No one should leave until we catch the killer," came a voice from the hall outside the library. It was the Detective followed closely by the inspector.

    He walked over to the table where the coffee tray lie. He picked up the Millionaire's cup, dipped his finger in it and cautiously put it to his tongue, he spit it out back in the cup and stated, "Poisoned, the killer is amongst us, and we must catch him."

    Good old RRRaskolnikov is a killer, so he'll surely know the URL for the QTs…

    It's obvious. The butler did it.

    Vote: Robbiecon.

    Well, Inspector DrumStudent, this looks like an open-and-shut case. The evidence is clear: landlubber the Cook added some poison to the millionaire's coffee.

    Lock him up, and we can move onto the next case, there's a good chap.

    The Heiress sure has a lot of family and friend's around, doesn't she. I reckon the dodgiest looking one is the Mother. DaveShack, why did I hear you in the master's personal quarters earlier? I decided to leave you alone, after all the master had warned me not to intrude his personal areas. This included his study and the bedroom, which I only entered when required to attend to his needs.

    And I never trusted politicians. So why is there one sitting in the grand living room?

    Hum the cook, the butler, or maybe the maid Nictel?

    The doc sends a suspicious look at the Heiress' husband, he sure has a free ride to the legacy of old Darth Casear now... the best motivation to kill...

    By jove! Detective Winston Hughes, you've done it again! Of course landlubber is the culprit, they put poison in the coffee! Brilliant deduction Hughes!

    Surely you can't think I'd poison my dear husband! Where would I get such nasty stuff. It must have been the groundskeeper Earthling. He has several kinds of poison at his disposal.

    Yeah, so what if I raised taxes on your household? Deal with it! That doesn't mean I'm a murderer.

    RRRaskolnikov must've done it. It isn't hard to believe that a doctor would have access to all kinds of nasty poisons when the time for them arises.

    Balderdash! Why would my wife even want to kill her revered father? Stop spouting such utter nonsense, I do ask of you.
    Throwing crap around at others to divert suspicion while casting aspersions on my integrity, all the while not answering my accusation? Coming from the man that was first to the body and announced the death to all, then was the one claiming poison? How scummy of you.
    It is MY money, earned by the sweat of MY workers under MY indolent gaze and the taxes were evaded by MY accountants, so keep your hands off it!

    I'm suspicious of why, when it was my father's doctor that was invited, it is my doctor, Dr.RRRaskolnikov, that showed up.

    @Autolycus: he sent me himself. He said he had to pick up some analysis results at the local laboratory. I guess he will join us later.

    @Sonreal: while I do know a lot about chemistry and human anatomy, I hardly see when I would have been able to do it.
    I was merely stating that the maid have had this opportunity. Like the cook and the butler.

    @Tak: oh you... I resisted the OMGUS vote and it's like that you thank me? :lol: (and for what it's worth, untill you explain the opposite, you did have more motivations than me to see Dark Caesar dead...)
