Murder in Mirkwood – Jan 29th & 30th

The 2015-2016 Murder Mystery season is just getting underway, and we’ve already announced two brand new themes, Firefly and Star Wars. After two space based adventures, we thought we’d bring the Ravenwood Detectives back down to earth. Middle Earth, to be precise!

At the edge of the darkened forest of Mirkwood lies a remote fort. The hardy Men of this outpost are no strangers to trouble. They have long since grown accustomed to the occasional goblin raid, and all know not to venture too deep into the wood lest they stumble into a nest of giant spiders.

But trouble of a new sort has found the outpost. Twice in the past fortnight the gruesome remains of lone soldiers have been discovered, not on patrol, but inside the fort. And now the Captain himself has been found, slain within his own tent.

Are these killings the work of an insider? Or has the fort been infiltrated, perhaps by Easterlings, perhaps by something… more sinister?

Ready your axe and your wits and prepare to enter the Mirkwood Forest. Stick to the forest track, keep your spirits up, hope for the best, and with a tremendous slice of luck you may come out one day…

Join the Ravenwood Detective Agency in solving the mystery of the Murder in Mirkwood. Tickets for Murder in Mirkwood are $100, and include Saturday night’s dinner. As with all of our mysteries, the event starts with dinner on Friday. Late arrivals will be accommodated as best as possible, but to enjoy the full experience please attempt to arrive early Friday evening.

And stay tuned for announcements of even more exciting mystery announcements for the 2015-2016 season!

If you haven’t been to one of our mystery weekends and are wondering what they are all about, check out our Murder Mystery page for all of the details. And stay tuned here at Quoth the Raven to hear about the rest of the great mysteries we have planned for this season!
