A group of us (ages --Upper 20s, 30s, 40s-- and people vary) occasionally have
Murder Mysteries in Harford County, MD(Abingdon). This time we are short two
people. We need a couple of people to play the roles of JUAN STEPFORD MANN and
TIMOTHY BLEARY. This game will take place on Sat 26 Aug 06. If you're interested,
please email me and I can give you more details and pictures from some of the
Murder Mysteries we've done in the past.

It's a lot of fun and you get free food :)

Excerpt from the game How to Host a Murder: Tragical Mystery Tour

and characters below:

Dear chicks and dudes,

After finding new dimensions of consciousness writing my enlightening songs,
I've decided to share this summer of love with my closest friends and invite
you all on a week-long trip onboard my infamous psychedelic peace bus.

I will be performing at Beefstock and you are all invited to be part of my
conspiracy of love, spreading peace and sugar cubes laced with sunshine along
the way. Can you dig it?

We will embark on our historic journey after sharing the communal human experience
of watching the first man set foot on the moon.

Please join me. It'll be your best trip ever.

Peace and love,

Hedda Leiss


Philip Mabong, Jamaica Bomblast, Timothy Bleary, Enya Goddard-Daveeda, Juan
Stepford Mann, Reina Terra, Nate Ashbury, Burnette DeBrah.


Record producer and celebrated playboy Philip Mabong is founder of the wildly
successful C.T.& A. records, and has boosted many struggling bands into
superstardom. He is best known for producing that immortal ode to the road "Born
to be Vile," by Steppencrap. A hedonist of the highest order, Philip
has embraced the hippie movement--and only produces music with messages of
peace, love and chemical enlightenment. Most recently he has made rock artist
Hedda Leiss the most successful female artist of the decade, and in fact
has been Hedda's lover for several blissful years.

Costume Suggestion: Nehru jacket, bright sports coat with tie-dyed shirt, or
ruffled shirt (or no shirt at all).


Jamaica's the Rastafarian party girl, whose dreadlocks, laid-back attitude
and fun-loving personality have made her the life of every party. The buzz
is that Jamaica is good luck, and wherever she goes the most wonderful things
tend to happen. A free spirit with a lust for life, Jamaica glides through
the world with a carefree attitude. Jamaica has become a regular with the
Hedda Leiss entourage, since Hedda swears by her herbal remedies for everything
from hangnails to hangovers.

Costume Suggestion: Dreadlocks, halter top, flowered bell-bottoms.


Mind-expansionist and spiritual guru Timothy Bleary began as a humble florist,
but soon became famous for his counter-culture writings, and coined that
now famous phrase "Tune in, turn on, and put out." He is also the
founder of the Church of the Vacant Mind, and his followers can often be
seen pushing Bleary's floral arrangements at street corners and airports.
Recently church membership has multiplied in amazing proportions. All new
members donate everything they own to Bleary in return for the transcendental
honor of dispensing bouquets of love and peace to the unenlightened masses.
Naturally this has endeared Bleary to the hippie culture, and has padded
his pockets with plenty of bread.

Costume Suggestion: A flowery shirt or frock, multi-colored sunglasses and
the Yin/Yang sign painted on forehead.


Former Miss Wisconsin Enya Goddard-Daveeda was once the debutante next door.
She was voted Miss Congeniality, and was first runner up to Miss Hawaii in
last year's Miss American pageant.Unfortunately Enya was ejected from the
pageant when she tried to bludgeon Miss Hawaii with her own crown shortly
after the winner was announced. After losing her bid to be Miss American,
Enya began a long fall into American counter-culture. She has taken a sudden
interest in the music of Hedda Leiss and the philosophy of Timothy Bleary.
In fact, Bleary has taken Enya under his wing, and turned her into the Church
of the Vacant Mind's High-Priestess of Love--a position that has gained her
more adoring fans than she could ever have hoped for.

Costume Suggestion: Everything white and loose fitting, bellbottoms, a kerchief
around the neck and flowers painted on face and arms. Or going in the other
direction, white boots and miniskirt.


Astronaut Juan Stepford Mann is one of Nasa's golden boys. He's a highly decorated
Air Force Major with the right stuff, and is bound for the moon on one of
the next Apollo missions. Although he really doesn't understand the hippie
movement, he's been Burnette DeBrah's escort for several months now, and
she has introduced him to heads of state as well as the hippie elite. The
tuned-in, turned-on crowd despises Juan and the establishment that he represents,
but when it comes to love-ins, he is, shall we say, largely welcome--in fact
he's known on the love circuit as "ApolloThirteen." Although he
doesn't do mind-expanding drugs himself, lately he's been fraternizing with
some highly brain-fried individuals. It's all very new and exciting for Juan
almost enough to makehim forget his mysteriously tragic childhood.

Costume Suggestion: An Air Force uniform, or conservative white shirt, with
dark slacks and a paisley tie.


Rumored to be the founder of the "low-fee love" movement, Reina Terra
is the consummate groupie, and has traveled with the likes of The Tyrds, The
Strolling Bones, and even The Crateful O'Dead before gaining notoriety for
giving birth to the son of that flamboyant rock star, Nick Jaguar. Reina is
always at the cutting edge of hippie fashions, and is commonly recognized as
the inventor of tie-dye. In recent months, Reina has become a regular in superstar
Hedda Leiss's entourage, and in fact the singer considers Reina to be her closest

Costume Suggestion: Tie-dyed everything, love beads, bare feet to show off
ankle bracelets.


Nate, student body president of Burpley University, is the upstart activist
who masterminded a march on Washington that packed in millions on The Mall
from the Capitol building to the Washington Monument. Although he was born
into one of the nations wealthiest families, he has rejected his privileged
upbringing and uses his family's wealth to fund protest rallies.It is there
that he inspires students around the nation with his speeches on peace, free
love, and tax shelters. Handsome, and suave, he's the reason young girls
leave home to camp out around the Burpley campus.

Costume Suggestion: Head band, beaded vest peace-sign medallion, tattered jeans,
mood ring, sandals or thongs.


Feminist Burnette DeBrah has led a crusade against the oppression of women--as
evidenced by her successful "Bras Across America" campaign--in
which thousands of women hooked together their brassieres from coast to coast
and set them a flame. Since then, Burnette has been a rising political star,
challenging the congressional "boys club," with a bid for congress
this coming November (which she is likely to win). Although a few years older
than the Now Generation, they still consider her a groovy, tuned-in chick.
Most recently she can be seen escorted by Major Juan Stepford Mann. You can't
miss Burnette in any crowd, because of her commanding voice, and those wide-brimmed
floppy hats that have become her trademark.

Costume Suggestion: Brightly-colored business skirt and pants, wide-brimmed
floppy hat, oversized sunglasses.
