The Lilly Mystery
The guests all arrive at the Lilly Hotel in a steampunk world, a quaint place to stay in the middle of town, yet surrounded by woods. Actually, that sounds a little creepy. It’s a comfortable establishment with good food, but the Lilly’s great claim to fame are the sceances. So ghosts are expected, as are the dearly departed. Perhaps what is surprising are all the tawdry foibles of the living; greed, secrets, lust, and the soon to be dearly departed.
So sit down at the table and as soon as the honored guest arrives by steam driven airship you can be assured of an interesting evening… and that someone ain’t gonna make it.
