The mood was tense as the super heroes convened for their super-top-secret annual meeting. At least, it was supposed to be an annual meeting. For as the heroes gathered they came to a shocking and disturbing realization… they had no recollection of last year’s meeting. To be more precise, they had no recollection of the last year at all!
Of course the body didn’t help the mood either.
As the heroes were struggling with the apparent gap in their memories, they discovered their Chief Recordkeeper and Historian, dead on the floor of his office, clutching a mysterious broken crystal. Pinned to his chest was a page torn from last year’s calendar, on its back a note scrawled in all-too-familiar handwriting:
You’ve beaten me thrice, I’m loathe to admit,
Though that hardly means that I’m going to quit.
My triumph is here, sweet victory is mine,
for now I am the very master of time!
– The Scarlet Raven
As they often did in situations such as this, the heroes called in their allies at the Ravenwood Detective Agency. To their dismay, they discovered that the detectives weren’t immune to the Scarlet Raven’s machinations. They too had apparently lost time, as no detective could recall anything since their successful completion of the Case of the Midnight Garden of the Living Dead… over two years ago!
Could it be true, could the Scarlet Raven have actually stolen time itself? And if so, for what purpose? Can the heroes and detectives bring an end to his schemes, and more importantly his horrible nursery rhymes?
The Ravenwood Detective Agency is calling all agents and heroes to investigate these questions and more. Tune in August 19th & 20th, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel, for the next episode in our Super Hero themed Murder Mystery Weekends!
Tickets for The Scarlet Raven and a Page Out of Time 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.
