Here at dANightsOfMystery we host the DeviantArt version of:

Now, you may be asking yourself:

What exactly is a murder mystery party?

A murder mystery party is an interactive party where you and your guests witness and try to solve a fictitious murder that occurs at the party.

With the use of DA Chat Rooms, we try to make sure that every party is a night of fun, mystery, and murder!


Frequently Asked Questions

:bulletpurple: What is a Devious Night of Mystery?

A Devious Night of Mystery is our version of a Murder Mystery Party. Have you ever seen that episode of The Golden Girls where Blanche, Dorothy, Rose, & Sophia attend a party where someone is killed at the very beginning? That's what we host all the time.

:bulletpurple: How can you host a Murder Mystery Party on dA?

Through the use of dA's Chatrooms & superb storytelling, dANightsOfMystery successfully hosts their version of Murder Mystery Parties. Before the night of the party each guest receives a date, time, setting, and character to portray during the party. After a brief summary of who has died and what was going on when it happened - the players are provided 4 Rounds of Questioning to learn as much as they can about the other guests and the actual evidence. At the end of the night, whoever can figure out WhoDun'It is the winner of the party.

:bulletpurple: Who is allowed to participate in the parties & how?

If you are a member of the group & make the guest list before signups close for a particular party, you can participate in one of our Devious Nights of Mystery as a party guest. The only deviants who have the honor of being our party Hosts & Hostesses are our beloved Contributors. Openings for these positions become open randomly - so keep an eye out if you're ever interested.

:bulletpurple: Who gets to be the murderer or murderess and do they win anything?

Unfortunately - being a killer in one of our parties disqualifies you from winning the party's Top Prize. Killers are compensated for their efforts, however; they are given a Secondary Prize - less than the winner, but being a murderer for a night is prize enough.

Feel free to join and keep an eye out for party announcements.

My bad. :iconfacepalmplz:

The murderer is randomly chosen by the party host. They get to choose whoever they like to be the killer - you don't have to accept it, but it certainly would be fun. :nuu:
