there should be an ocean liner that one could get on ( a substitute for a city ) and one could solve a mystery around the ship ( the grand salon, the kitchen, the boiler room, the cabin, etc. ) and a computer game of 21 could be in the grand salon. one could stay on the ship to solve mysteries but the ship would not have any treasure hunts and one could not buy an apartment on the ship. from time to time the ship would dock in shainghai, and everybody would be kicked off the ship and find themselves in shaingahi..the ship would stay in shainghai for say 3 days and fill up again ( perhaps a limit of 20 players only ) and then sail off so to speak to arrive in london two weeks later..then everybody would get kicked off and one could get back on to be the next 20...the deal is when the ship leaves port you do not know to which city it will travel next..you
take your chances and every two weeks it kicks you off...perhaps one could limit 20 players from always staying on the ship by either charging a higher and higher fee to get on if you kept getting on all the time to stay on the ship or perhaps the computer would just let the first 20 on or perhaps the computer would take the last 20 who just got off and not allow them to get back on in the next 3 days at all....it could be called "the sleuthetania"...

There's is a bug in the FM.

Quit the mystery and see if you can access the map page. If not, try logging out and back in, it seems to have worked for other people. I'm sure Ben will post somewhere when the bug is fixed.

mmm The FM pre-dates the construction of the ship :) So I think the bug is from when it was written using the Cairo townies as place holders, and then ported out to the Ship.

on a brighter note the favours are working just fine and dandy. What with the Parrot and the Naval Spyglass, I can feel myself getting very nautical :D

lol (yes 'more') and I have to say that I think the intro's (and all the other thematic bits and pieces) that you and ?Sunny? have written are really good! I've enjoyed reading those lots!

Did anyone see that crazy truck driver with the air horn in his hand who chased me around while I was doing surveillance? Why do they let truck drivers on this ship anyway, its bad enough they try to run me down on dry land ;)

lol Sophie, I just had to go and use surveillance myslef just see that guy try and run me down as well. I guess this ship is even bigger than the Titanic to have not only a truck chasing us down but to have a street big enough for him to drive on! ;-)

I haven't Aunt P. I keep clicking on every tec I know is on the ship and it doesn't register on anyone's tec page that they've gotten one either. I'm wondering if it might have something to do with the Cairo cross-over glitch? Or maybe it just isn't programmed to give them yet. I would love to have one by the time we get off at turnover as a sort of souvenier.

Or how about a tshirt that says "I survived the maiden voyage of the USS Sleuthetania". That would be sweet!
