Bereits vor einigen Tagen gab es einen Tagesbericht von Phil über unser Mörderspiel. In diesem hat er das Spiel ein bisschen erklärt und ein paar Beispiele gegeben. Was zu dieser Zeit jedoch noch nicht so bekannt war, dass die Bordzeitungs-AG entschieden hatte, einen täglichen Bericht über die Morde vom Vortag zu schreiben.

Ich wurde der Verantwortliche für diese Berichte, da ich leider als einer der ersten getötet wurde und somit ein vertrauenswürdiger Ansprechpartner war. Somit erfuhr ich nach und nach (fast) alle Geheimnisse die an Bord existierten und aus diesen Geheimnissen wurden die ersten Murder News, welche handschriftlich im Messroom ausgehängt wurden.

Als ich dann überlegte, welches Thema für meinen Tagesbericht passen würde, kam mir die Idee, alle Murder News abzutippen und in den Tagesbericht zu stecken. Somit wünsche ich viel Spaß bei den folgenden Texten voller Spannung, Hinterhältigkeit und Spaß.

So on the day before yesterday we began with our murder game and because of this the “Pelican Times“ team decided to publish “Murder News“.

So we found a person which saw everything and told us his story: The beginning it was almost midnight when I walked around on the Welldeck because I couldn`t sleep. Suddenly, I heard something behind me. I turned around… and then I relaxed. Johannes was coming back from his round. I watched him, going to the stairs to the Poopdeck.

In the next moment a shadow appeared and hit him with a big picture frame. Johannes fell down the stairs… and died. When the shadow dissappeared, I saw his face! Simon of the crew members! I went back to bed and slept very bad because of this terrible secret.

After breakfast I went outside to look at the daily routine. At maybe 08:30, Pete asked some people to help him to set the royal. When the group of students went downstairs from the Poopdeck, he threw an underpant and hit Carl´s head. Just a few seconds later Carl got unconscious and fell overboard.

About 11:00, I sat on the Welldeck when I saw a big flying carpet attacking Paul. After a short fight the carpet chocked Paul to death. After a quick research I knew that  Max controlled the carpet with his mental powers. I was shocked! So many dead people.

Before I had the chance to react, Philipp met Joana between the galley and the Welldeck, took an umbrella and stabed her to death. Later I found the dead body of Sarah. I don´t know who killed her. At the end of the day I observed how Florett fell down from the boat deck.

A big poisonous spider crawled around her neck! I searched the murder, but I didn´t find him. At about 18:00, I was chilling in the saloon when Sam stepped in and went to a little treasure chest. She opened the chest and something little shot out of it. The thing flew out of the the chest directly into her heart. I don´t know who is the murderer, but I saw Anson with this chest a few hours ago. Maybe…

So that‘s what happened yesterday. Good luck to everyone who is still alive. Plan your kills and try to survive. We will see what our anonymous narrator will discover next time.

Yesterday a lot of people died and our anonymous narrator again discovered some murders. So let´s have a look on his story from yesterday. Mysterious serial killer?! I will begin with yesterday evening. I was passing by the main mast bilge, thinking about different things, when I saw Silja.

She walked towards me. Suddenly, somemone threw a welly between her legs. She slipped and her head hit the floor. I ran to the place where the welly came from, but there was nobody. Later, maybe about midnight, I was on the Foredeck because we did something on the Jibs. When I was ready to leave, I saw a silhouette attacking Max.

It pressed some socks in his mouth and after a moment, Max suffocated. The silhouette dissappeared immediately. Later during classes, Marlene K. took a dictionary, opened it and stopped… she opened up her eyes. Her breath was irregular and she fell down the bench. I saw, that there was something on the paper of the dictionary. I looked around and saw Tamsin dissappearing with a bottle of poison.

Also during school, Simon of the crew members came into the Messroom with the Spanker Trysail. I followed him and saw, how he took it up a mast. I recognized that he didn´t take up the clew. He went to Simon (the one with hair), and gave him the clew. In this moment there came a squall. The sail banged overboard with the Clew and Simon flew overboard.

So we lost the next person. In the afternoon, Jonas was climbing in the bowsprit, when Anson came with a big chest. He attacked Jonas and after a short fight, he put Jonas in the chest, locked it and kicked it overboard. After a few seconds, the chest sank.

A few hours later, someone told me that Lilly threw some christmas‘ balls on Elena. Elena cut herself, but she didn´t die. At half past twelve, Tamsin hit Marco with an iron on his head and killed him. That´s her second kill today! After this I´ve heard that Elena‘s cut got festered and she died because of this.

The last dead person of today was Marlene M. because she was attacked by a Pelican in the saloon. But who sent the Pelican? …So now about two thirds of the people are dead. I´m excited to see who will be the winner of this game!

We begann with 40 people. Happy and motivated. Now, one quarter is still alive and everybody tries to reach the first place. Here is the story how we came down to 10 people: The last standing 10! A loud scream! I woke up! I realized that I fell asleep after dinner. I ran up to the fenders where the scream came from and saw Amelie´s dead body lying on the deck.

A few pieces of broken clay lay around her body. On the next day Lea was attacked by a unicorn which killed her with his horn. After this Angelina died because the earth fell on her head. She was killed with an atlas. In the afternoon I saw how somebody killed Jackie. The person took a pin and hit Jackie´s head. When the person ran away I saw that he wore some wellies.

At about 13:00 the staff meeting began. Pete had showered just a few minutes before and came up to the wheelhouse with a hairdryer. When he dried his mountain of hair, a wave came and caused a short circuit. Pete got a shock and after the wave was gone he was just a burned toast. Just 15 minutes after this, some people joined together to kill Mara, because she knew too much.

They came from behind Mara and hanged her with a charger. This was the  last kill of today. The last 10 people are alive. Maybe there might be some favourites, but nobody knows who will be the winner.

Last 10 survivors: 1. Anson (engineer), 2. Tamsin (first mate), 3. Simon (second mate), 4. Philipp S. (doctor), 5. Jens (teacher), 6. Lilly (mentor), 7. Ella (student), 8. Paula (student), 9. Phil (student), 10. Ruben (student)

The last 10 people are all very paranoid. Because of this, we reached just three kills in two days. These kills were carried out with a lot of tactic and some people turned into traitors and killed their best friends or helped killing them. And our anonymous narrator gave us some very interesting informations.

Should I trust or should I don’t? Today was a very peaceful day. I went upstairs for breakfast and was surprised that nobody died at night. Even after the breakfast nobody of our 10 survivors died. They were all very happy (except Anson, because he had to clean some very disgusting stuff) and motivated (except of Tamsin because she didn’t had her coffee this morning).

But then Pete took some people to set the Spanker. It was the same tactic he killed Carl with, but Paula trusted him, when he said she should climb up the Mizzen Mast to put away some gaskets. She climbed up and didn’t realize that Jens climbed up behind her. When she stood on a very short rope, both hands on the gaskets, Jens held some flowers under her nose.

He knew that Paula had an allergy against flowers. She sneezed and fell down the Mizzen Mast. Later everybody thought: “Why did she trust Pete?“. It was a very mean kill, but it was the only one today.

So in my latest researches I discovered a couple of important things. The beginning of this day was very peaceful like yesterday. We also reached a peaceful atmosphere till we had lunch! But that was it. White Watch A had to clean. One of the members of Whitewatch A was Phil. He knew where his killer wants to kill him, so he said: “I won’t go there“.

What he didn’t know was that the majority of White Watch A and some people from other watches joined together to kill him. He got the task to restore the toilet paper and when he went in one of the bathrooms Ella jumped into the bathroom behind him and hit him with a cup of tea. She hit him so hard that he died just because of this.

In the evening Anson climbed up to the third Main Mast platform and when he came back, Phillip waited on the second plattform to kill him. He threw some flowers to Anson. Who was so surprised, that he jumped back. Straight into the nothing. Just seven people are still alive! But now some survivors know where they should die.

So we might do something to keep the fun in this game…

On the fourth of december nobody died. Because of this, we (Miriam, Mascha and Linus) decided to change the system of the game a bit. We came together and thought about some new ideas and the final product was the advanced murdering game!

The advanced murdering game is a bit more difficult than the normal murder game. We sat in the saloon and thought about different things which should make murdering really hard. At first we had the idea to add a time where the murder has to kill. For example between 16:00 and 20:00.

But at the end we decided that this would be to hard. So we invented two new categories which won’t make murdering much more harder, but funnier for the death people. At first, before murdering, you have to do a good deed. Like Miriam said: “Because murdering is mean“.

One of the good deeds for example is to dance the Makarena dance in front of the whole crew (32 students, 5 Mentors and the permanent crew). If you have done your good deed, you are allowed to kill your victim. The second category is a task you have to do WHILE you are killing your victim.

For example, singing a cristmas song or wearing a christmas hat. So because of this there might be some very funny kills. Not funny for the murderer but funny for the death people.

At December 5, we began with the advanced murdering game. At December 6, Jens already killed Simon with Florett’s French book while Simon was eating some sweet stuff. While he did this, he sang a beautiful christmas song.

Just a bit later Jens killed Philipp with a cigarette next to something with the number 13. So Jens, who didn´t kill so much people in the normal murder game, killed two people in just a few hours.

That‘s what the advanced murdering game does with peaceful people! Five People, the best of the bests, are left! The final fight comes closer and closer. Just one person can win this game and claim the title of the murderer of the year!
