Howdy Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Every year at Christmas time, it's a time-honoured tradition for the von Baume family to gather at Forestborough Manor, and it's been that way since Hugo von Baume himself was a child. When he and his first, now deceased, wife were young and the children were small, the entire extended von Baume family would gather with their friends and throw fantastic parties. Being invited was something special, as Hugo was known for giving extravagant Christmas gifts to both family and friends.

Although Hugo is now both old and ill, he insists that traditions should be kept and that at least those closest to him should gather at Forestborough Manor. His doctor has said that this is likely to be the last Christmas he will ever celebrate. Hugo is blissfully unaware of the conflicts in the family, all trying to woo him - his will will include the entire von Baume family's considerable fortune...

This year things are different, instead of a daily task, there will be an episode of this murder mystery every Sunday (the 4 Sundays of Advent). You'll be helping Sheriff John Fitzburn find the real killer.
Along the way, you will be given various pieces of information that will either be clues or make you think about the text that has been published.

But be aware that between the clues there will also be small side quests (pop-up games) that can trigger prizes :)
