The Rourke Incident
About this creation
Team Acid Imperious! For the 2012 Mocathalon category number 13. The Ides of March: Great men, falls by treason and conspiracy! Tell us a story of assassination, treason and crime...

Our story begins one evening at that prestigious establishment, The Rourke Inn.

The guard watches over the brand spanking new "vehicle storage area" or "shed" as the traditionalists call it. It was an eyesore but there needed to be better protection for the valuable roadsters so many clients were using.

In the dark a silent figure creeps over the roof..

Inside the Rourke, the public room is a warm and cheery place.

All kinds of humanity conglomerate here.

Tonight business is slow. Only the regulars and messengers come down at this late hour.

Though slow, business is not quiet.

The sounds of drinking drill up through the floorboards to annoy the kingpin at his desk.

Jonas Schmitt is the innovative head of the Fin and Fur trading company. Though accused of shady dealings in the past, he has always managed to slip the government.

It is towards Schmitt's window that our mysterious visitor cautiously slides.

Brontor the guard, checks the surroundings.

Maybe that horse is making the scratching noise. Guarding a hunk of metal is fine, but to throw in a breathing animal is a little too much. Brontor couldn't wait for perimeter duty.

After another hop, skip, and a jump, the stealthy intruder stops by the window.

And glances inside the room.

Reginald: "Good evening unc! I didn't see you at table, so I went ahead and brought your bags up."

Schmitt: "That would have been very considerate of you. If I had not already told you to bring them up on our arrival."

Reginald: "Oh, you know how lovely this old place is. I lost track of time."

Schmitt: "Bah! I have heard to much about the 'beautiful' surroundings. My usually low expectations were raised only to fall completely. Why just look at this room"

Schmitt: "Luxurious suite! Every thing is made of metal. It is as if the builder couldn't find the right pieces in wood.

Schmitt: "And the 'outlooking' windows that once showed a duck infested pond now reveal a musty barn."

Reginald: " Ah, I see what you mean. Now that you mentioned your distaste of badly furnished Inns, I hope you will reconsider my contract. I could design a much nicer place than this and you would have me out of your hair, so to speak."

Schmitt: "Reggie, we talked about this before and my position still stands. You won't be getting away from the trade business for another 19 years. I know you think I am being hard, but I didn't become successful by breaking contracts.

Schmitt: "Besides being patient is a sign of good character. What are you doing?"

Reginald: "You are right as usual. I am afraid I have a great many character flaws."

Olivia: *gasp*
Reginald: "What?"

Reginald: "Hey! Come here!"

Reginald: "Guard!"

Reginald: "Stop that murderer!"

And thus the poor Schmitt lad lost his uncle to a mysterious and deadly assassin. Too grieved to continue working alongside reminders of his beloved boss, Reginald switched trades and is now the successful owner of a chain of Inns. The Rourke Theater still tells the story of the Bold female with a fiery weapon who still haunts the moors at night.

As I said this is for the 2012 Mocathalon. This is my first entry and I hope to bring up many more. Live on, Acid Imperious!

I, too, was a little lost in the story - just had a little difficulty following it to it's conclusion. As for the construction, it was a little rough, but you obviously put some time in. If you had tiled out a bit more, and perhaps gone with some additional color work to liven the interior, I think the build might have had more impact. Still a sound effort, and a solid 3 from this judge.

I think you missed the mark as far as the category goes, but you took some effort in the build and the story, so I will bump your score from a 2 to a 3. Your score =3

Quoting Blake Baer Score: 3
Thanks for judging.
Quoting Chris Phipson I gotta admit I was a little confused by the ending. Who was the woman and how was she involved? It clearly showed the one guy stabbing the other... Anyway, it was a good story and a decent build. Score of 3. ~ Chris.
Thanks for the score. My original idea was that the nephew would kill his Uncle and when he saw the thief, he would blame her for the murder. Then Reggie's version of the story would become a Rourke legend. I can see how I failed to make that clear. Oh well can't edit it now.
