Mystery Synopsis:

It’s the day of the Polytech High homecoming game, and the varsity football team is set to gather in the locker room for fun team building exercises, a pre-game warm-up, and a pep talk from Coach Morningstar. Per tradition, the Polytech mascot will arrive at the locker room before the game. The Polytech football team has never won a game without Paul the Polytech Parrot giving pre-game words of encouragement to the players. Skeptics call this a coincidence, but those involved with the football program prefer not to take a chance with the feathery superstition.

The team is set to play their rivals, the Flagstone Fighting Farmers. There are rumors that the Farmers plan on sabotaging the Parrots at the homecoming game this year. The students of Polytech have their ears and eyes open for any signs of chaos. Thus far, everything is on course, and the Polytech football team is favored to win this year. You’re a player on the team. This is where your story begins.
