You step out of a fireplace and into the Atrium on a Tuesday morning, brushing a bit of soot from your shoulder. You glance down at your wristwatch to find that you're running late - but no more than usual. Your briefcase tucked at your side, you head off to the golden gates of the lift and wedge your way into the bustling Ministry crowd. With an impatient finger you jab the button for the second floor.

As the doors slide open to reveal the corridor, you find yourself bombarded with absolute chaos. It's then that you realize there isn't enough coffee in the world for today. All around you are purple paper airplanes zooming in and out of various open doors. Bodies are flitting about from room to room, people are yelling. Your eyebrows knit together in confusion, and you step out of the lift with a deep breath to face the oncoming storm.

An Auror's job is not an easy one, but you knew that when you signed up. Upon entering the office you learn that there was a body of a ministry worker found that morning in the middle of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement corridor. No one knows who placed it there, or how and where the poor man died. But it is clear that he was moved there sometime the previous night. All they found on the victim was a single scrap of parchment with a hastily written note.

The darkness will prevail, the Ministry will fall. Magic is Might.

The words send a shiver down your spine, and smudges of crimson and copper mixing with the ink put your heart in your throat. Upon further examination, you notice that there is a different sort of smudge in the bottom corner - is that... a coffee stain? You lift the parchment to your nose and inhale deeply. The paper emits hints of spice and perfume. This note wasn't written in this corridor...

Task
Your job, should you choose to accept it, is to follow the string of clues left behind by the murderer to solve this mystery, beginning with the first clue hidden in the post above. Set up like a good ol' fashioned game of Clue, you'll have to find each new set of "cards" to eliminate the suspects, locations, and murder weapons. Once you find a new clue, you will record the cards found there in your
Auror's Journal (1 or 2) You are welcome to fill out all your information in the blank spots provided, but it is not necessary. Just be sure to record your answers!

At the end, you should be left with one suspect, one location, and one weapon. Can you solve this Murder at the Ministry?

II. All work for this contest must be done by yourself. You may not share your answers with anybody on or off HEX, until after the winners have been announced. Any users found cheating will be disqualified.

There will be new threads. The thread titles will have Murder at the Ministry in them, so you would not get lost

The clues will lead you all around HEX. Referring to the first post, you will have to find the clues to eliminate the suspects, locations, and murder weapons. Once you find a new clue, you will record it on your Auror's Journal (1 or 2) .
At the end, you should be left with one suspect, one location, and one weapon.


I have to go back to work now and will try to answer all other questions later when I get back on.
The other Archivists will also try to step in as soon as as possible

I have a question: in the last clue it says to link your journal in your owl. I'm not good with computers, so how would I mark off the names on it, and link it?

If I am allowed to ask...Do we have to go in a certain order. What I am asking is say, we think we know where the next clue leads. How will we know we are on the right track?
