I took some time to really dig deep into the Clue story that I want to tell. In the past, I've found myself writing Clue stories simply to hit all the cliches and board game story-arcs.

This time I'm writing something entirely different. I'm writing a story that appeals to the child in me that fell in love with Clue. The story will be wild and exceed some limits, but hopefully, it will be as much fun to read as it has been working on and planning out for the better part of the past two years.

I've revamped and rewrote, re-edited, and trashed ideas. But I think it's time to let my pet project out of its cage and into the hands of anyone who will take it.

I remember when I was 12 I discovered Depboy's wonderful Ongoing Internet Story. It hooked me from the minute I started reading. I would race home every day after school like a kid running to the comic store. The stories always had me craving more and rereading the classic episodes (Manor of Murders Cool). So I'd like to peronally thank you, David, for inspiring me to write about these colorful, crazy characters!! You will always be welcomed to join in on this project if you ever want to re-enter the mansion and explore the world of Clue.

I also remember racing to the forum to see the wonderful artwork from our very own CluedoKid. His games and fanart always managed to capture the essence of Clue that so many games failed to capture. His attention to detail and personality his hands can bring to the characters are what makes my story possible. I used to have writer's block every other day, but seeing how he's brought my story to life fills my heart with excitement for all the ideas I have planned!

Not 100% on the title, but here we are: The Clue Saga

Enjoy!

Hear, hear.

Also, I wish there was a Cluedo board version based on the British TV series using weapons from those series, etc.

Thanks! I'm having a lot of fun with this. I hope you enjoy!

Episode 2 is out!

I've put the episodes in descending order in the drop-down on the "Story" tab. Let me know if ascending order would be preferred. I figure latest episode on top would be the way to go Smile

The next four parts will come out all around the same time. I'm trying to write them all together since the bodies will start to pile up and the "who-is-where" will be one of the factors in solving the mystery Smile

Progress: Parts 1 & 2 are Completed. Part 3 is 1/4 completed.
