The Quibbler September Contest-Murder Mystery


Oh dear, it seems that things aren’t as happy go lucky as they appear at The Quibbler. Zoe, the lovable editor, has been found dead in her office where she was eating dinner and making edits. Only the Quibbler staff has access to her in her office. We need your help in figuring out who killed Zoe.

Follow the clues to different forums to meet the suspects and find out any information the medical examiner has uncovered.

Rules:
1. All HEX terms and rules apply.
2. All work must be your own; plagiarism will not be tolerated.
3. Only one entry may be submitted; if you submit more than one, only your first will be taken into consideration. Winners will be randomized from all correct entries.
4. Post in each thread that you find saying that you found the thread. If you fail to do this you will be disqualified.
5. You MUST include a reasoning for your belief on who the murderer(s) is. Entries that do not will be disqualified even if there is a correct answer!
6. When submitting your entry be sure to include each answer to the clue, the thread and forum the clue was in, and the murderer(s) and the reasoning behind your thought processes. You must include every clue and forum in your submission even if you think you know the answer before the final location. Also include screenshots for the puzzles if applicable.
-So for example when submitting your entry it will look something like this:


Quote:
1.
Forum/Thread: LINK TO THIS THREAD (or name of forum and thread number)
Clue: ANSWER TO THE PUZZLE AND LOCATION OF NEXT CLUE

2.
Forum/Thread:
Clue:

ETC.

Murderer(s)/REASONING:



7. Owl your entry to Erin by September 17th at 11:59pm HEX time.

Prizes:

Hey, Erin. Presumably, I can print the wordsearch and other stuff out?

Also; are the winners randomly selected?

Please tag me in any response.

@AccioNox

1. Of course you can print the stuff out as long as an image of your answer is still included in the owl when you submit.

2. Yes winners will be randomized from everyone who was correct. I will add that in now for clarification

Sounds fun, only that I'm unsure whether I understand correctly.
1) I find the clue from this word search and go find 2 clue from what it says and when I find that 2 clue thread then I have to post there that I found the thread and like that to every next clue thread?
2) And in the end when I have found ALL the clues I will owl Erin my entry where all the threads and clues are pointed out separatly with murderer's reasoning like in the example?

Sorry if all of that is obvious I just wanted to make sure I won't mess up at any point. 😆

@GoldenHand

1. yes that is correct. Each clue will lead you to the following forum where there will be another clue to another forum. At least until the last thread but that one will be clearly marked

2. Correct. You can either put the link to the thread or the name of the forum and thread number along with the answer to the clue and murderer(s)/reasoning. But to clarify the reasoning is why YOU think they are the murderer not what their reasoning was to murder.
