OUT OF THE DARK, INTO THE NIGHT
How closely will you hold your secrets?
FIRST, A LETTER ARRIVES
We are FOUL: Foes Of the Unidentified Liars
We are dedicated to the preservation of truth, especially in relation to the supernatural. We will go to great lengths to bring down anyone who seeks to obscure fact from the public eye.
Some have called us dangerous. We know that we're doing what's right.
Why are we contacting you? Read on, my friend.

At first you must've been confused to receive such a strange thing in the mail. Of course you have your secrets, but you haven't done anything necessarily wrong.
But then, a body's found. An unidentified corpse holding a tape recorder with top secret government intel on extraterrestrial life. And suddenly, you become very concerned that we've contacted you.
It's almost like we saw this coming.
ACT 1: STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT
Sometime between the hours of 12am and 8am, the body was discarded in a dumpster behind the Old Road Gas Station. Surveillance was able to place you at the gas station during that time span.
Registered government vehicle stops at gas station, then promptly departs.
At some point during the night, a straw is deposited at the Old Road Gas Station that contains traces of Keith Shefield's DNA on one side and gasoline on the other. Keith was not spotted on surveillance cameras.
Roberta Doherty arrives at gas station. She approaches Penelope and is seemingly worried. She asks to use the gas station phone, makes a call, but the call does not go through. Penelope promptly departs.
Macy Trekker arrives with smoke billowing from her car. She approaches Penelope in a frantic state. She demands that she needs mechanical service immediately. Penelope phones the mechanic, but the mechanic does not answer. Macy sets off on foot.
Priscila Loretta arrives at gas station. She enters the store, and chats with Penelope about job opportunities at the gas station. She goes behind the counter to use the restroom, then leaves after that.
Frances Bukowski arrives in a hearse. She fills up the vehicle with gas, then departs.
Diana Toronto arrives. Throws away a strange object in the trash. Enters the store, purchases some mint gum. She then drives away.
Harold B. Healthyson arrives and fills up the car with gas. He proceeds to enter the store. He chats with Penelope for a while and attempts to sell her supplements. He then drives away.
Margaret Magleson arrives at gas station. Parks her car. Gets out of car, looks around, then returns to car without getting gas or entering store. She drives away.
Helen Helios arrives to fill her car with gas. Leaves promptly.
James DiMallo arrives to clean the gas station. Stays for approximately a half hour before departing.
Penelope Pumps shows up to take her shift at the Old Road Gas Station.
An anonymous call is made to the FBI reporting the corpse in the dumpster.
Needless to say, you are all called in for questioning. You're all placed under house arrest. Stress is high, but at least someone made noodles.
ACT 2: THE COLONEL'S CATASTROPHE
Interrogation is going rather smoothly, until another FBI agent unexpectedly barges through the door. He announces chilling news:
A second body has been found.
Colonel Bronson Doherty, military veteran and UFO enthusiast was found dead in his car at the bottom of a cliff. Murder is suspected. And of course the two bodies must be related. Somehow.
Looks like it's time to dig through all this evidence.
(hover your mouse over a clue to learn more about it)
ACT 3: TIME TO COME CLEAN
You've gone through all the evidence. You've plead your case, successfully or not. Now it's time to find out who really did this.
You have two options: the first is to voluntarily confess the secrets you've been concealing this whole time. In doing so, you relinquish your trust with the FBI and are no longer allowed to vote for who you think the murderer is. However, you'll all learn information that will bring you closer to the truth
Your second option is to retain your secrets and be part of the accusation process, hopefully taking down the true killer.
However, there's a catch: if the others in the room decide unanimously to force someone to confess, they must confess and lose their vote. No questions asked.
Let's watch the drama unfurl.
VOTE FOR KEITH
PANDEMONIUM + FRANCES'S CONFESSION
So. Who did do it, after all? Were the corpse in the dumpster and the Colonel connected? Or was it just some tragic coincidence?
Why don't you take some time and sort through the evidence. Maybe you can figure it out yourself. Because after all, if you're a real disciple of the truth, then everything can be made clear to you after some practice. And once that happens, perhaps that means you belong with us. A fellow guardian of knowledge...
...and a worthy member of F.O.U.L.
