_An Ensemble Cast Mystery_ is a mystery LARP system where investigators (who do not know the solution to the mystery they’re investigating) and an ensemble (who do know the solution) work together to tell a mystery story. As the detective and their companion move through a pre-scripted mystery scenario, the ensemble interacts with them by playing a variety of characters with conflicting agendas and varying knowledge. As the investigators move through the story, the ensemble helps them uncover clues, guides them to worthwhile encounters, and enables them to solve the mystery.

_Death at Bancroft Manor_ is _An Ensemble Cast Mystery_ scenario for 6 players (2 investigators and 4 ensemble cast). It takes place in an Irish manor in 1920, as the black sheep of a well-established Catholic family returns home for a sibling’s funeral and discovers a series of dire family secrets.

This scenario requires 2 players willing to play male characters in the ensemble cast and 2 players willing to play female characters in the ensemble cast. The 2 investigator characters in this scenario can be gendered as their players prefer.
