It was time for the Annual New Year’s Eve Bash at the plush Pompey Palace Resort in Gothica City. This year, the theme was a Roman Toga Celebration and the townspeople were more than excited to outshine each other in their clever Roman toga designs. The event unexpectedly sold out within only two days so the management of the Pompey Palace knew the stylish Magnolia Ballroom would be packed with wall-to-wall togas to bring in the New Year. As the guests pulled up to the red carpet and exited their vehicles, the unspoken toga competition commenced. A few thorny personalities showed their faces in the Magnolia Ballroom but the excitement in the air overcame the sharp puncture wound to the groups' morale. Festive food, entertaining party games and enjoyable conversation ensued as the hosts of the night kept the spirits high. Without warning, some guests received alarming news as others looked on in a panic! A few guests were openly frazzled while others scrambled to figure out how to help their companions. The Ballroom frenzy continued to boil until the guests were shocked to find a victim had been murdered! The guests rallied together to figure out whodunit and underwent an intense investigation of the night’s happenings. Each investigator turned in their best guess of whodunit in hopes their vote would match the rest of the investigators. They hoped the murder could be solved before the murderer escaped. One by one, the guests came clean with their involvement, if any, with the murder and the murderer finally confessed! After a brief escape attempt by the murderer, the guests finally calmed down and enjoyed the remainder of the celebration. The Pompey Palace management team is sure that they can’t beat the excitement of this year's New Year’s Eve Roman Toga Bash. Therefore, they have decided to retire the annual bash and switch to a Valentine’s Day Affair next year.
