Haunted Hotel Homicide

Since 1864—The Bateman Hotel. A place where guests can relax and conjure the days of refined luxury, romantic evenings, and glittering nights. The new owner is hosting a soiree in honor of the anniversary of the hotel’s reopening a year ago. If you decide to make a reservation for an overnight stay after the party, there are a few guest rooms to avoid due to reports of ill-spirited apparitions, steamy pockets of strange mist causing feelings of dread, sudden drops of temperature, and terrifying voices that echo in the corridors during the wee hours of the morning. Other than that, the old hotel is once again becoming the place to be in the town of Wraith’s Cove. The infamous Quinn Bloom is on the VIP guest list and will bring a rare doll collection to the hotel - but don't let the dolls bother you - the rumors about them may not even be true. You won’t miss this party for the world. This is where your story begins.

Guest List



Hotel Owner 

Bailey Burnos purchased the old Bateman Hotel a few years ago and poured blood, sweat, and tears into its restoration. The one-year anniversary of the reopening is quickly approaching. An insatiable art fanatic, Bailey is socially awkward and often stares into space. Eccentricities aside, this is one savvy business owner. A dedicated workaholic, Bailey lives in the hotel on the 15th penthouse floor.

Suggested attire: Semi-formal party attire. Put a Gothic twist on your costume.



Hotel Manager 

Devin Dracovia is the mean-spirited manager of the Bateman Hotel. The hotel staff will do whatever they can to avoid Devin, but s/he always gets the job done—no matter what it takes. However, Devin’s nose has poked around corners where it doesn’t belong lately, and many people are not happy about it. Devin lives on the second floor of the hotel.

Suggested attire: Semi-formal party attire. Put a Gothic twist on your costume.



Resident of the Hotel

 Harley Grange is a school teacher with a dark, hidden past. This guest recently signed a lease to become a permanent resident of the Bateman Hotel - requesting one of the most haunted rooms in the establishment—room #614. Rumor has it that Harley steals from the hotel due to a serious lack of funds.

Suggested attire: Gothic-inspired semi-formal party attire or a ‘tourist’ t-shirt that you’ve stolen from the gift shop.



Art Dealer & Hotel Guest

 Tristan Blade is the hipster art dealer who acquires and sells the most lifelike bronze sculptures you’ve ever seen. There are rumors that Tristan’s pieces have auras – some good, some mischievous, and some downright evil. Bailey has recently acquired one of Tristan’s sculptures and, in return, has given Tristan a free night’s stay at the hotel. Tristan was the previous owner, as his/her family built the Bateman Hotel back in 1864.

Suggested attire: Trendy attire with a dark twist.



Hotel Chef, Phantom Steakhouse

Morgan Meepman was released from prison recently after doing a stretch behind bars for performing illegal human subject research with a group of underground biochemists. The cousin of the hotel’s new owner, Morgan was hired as the head chef of the hotel’s critically-acclaimed restaurant – Phantom Steakhouse.  Morgan lives in the hotel on the 6th floor.

Suggested attire: Chef’s costume. It's optional to put a Gothic twist on your costume.



Hotel Housekeeper

Ryan Ashlore is the nosy head housekeeper of the Bateman Hotel. On the surface, Ryan appears to do a great job, as the hotel is well-maintained. However, many sources say that Ryan has a malicious quality that s/he keeps veiled. It’s probably best to stay on Ryan’s good side, nevertheless.

Suggested attire: Housekeeping uniform. A feather duster &/or binoculars are optional props.



Antique Doll Collector & Hotel Guest

 Quinn Bloom was invited to the hotel by Bailey Burnos for a private showing of Quinn’s rare dolls. Quinn deals with unusual, hard-to-find dolls—some rumored to be linked with malevolent cultural traditions that civilized people should not deal with. Nonetheless, Bailey is an art collector of all forms and will not be outdone…by anyone.

Suggested attire: Gothic-inspired semi-formal party attire. Creepy baby dolls as optional props.



Hotel Bartender, Black Raven Lounge

Justice James is the charming bartender at the Black Raven Lounge of the Bateman Hotel. Justice is friendly and accommodating and will do anything to make customers happy. However, Justice seems to have a secret agenda or an ulterior motive. The hotel staff is dying to figure out if this is true.  Justice is good friends with Morgan Meepman and lives on the 12th floor of the hotel.

Suggested attire: Bartending costume. It's optional to put a Gothic twist on your costume.


Hotel Jazz Singer, Black Raven Lounge 

 Drew Evermore is the enchanting jazz singer for the Black Raven Lounge of the Bateman Hotel. Drew’s voice is captivating and easy to get lost in—a number of guests have reportedly lost hours after listening to one of Drew’s sets. Drew is an old soul—an avid historian—and knows a lot about the history of the old hotel.

Suggested attire: Glamorous attire.



Hotel Concierge

River August is a prim and proper hotel concierge at the Bateman Hotel. River will do whatever is possible for the well-to-do guests. However, this concierge is usually unavailable to customers who might not have the money for big tips.

Suggested attire:  Tux/formal black suit or business formal black dress.



Server, Phantom Steakhouse

Ocean White is the tenacious server at the Phantom Steakhouse of the Bateman Hotel. As a new employee, Ocean has no idea what lies ahead by taking this job at a hotel that is apparently seething with supernatural activity.

Suggested attire:  Server attire such as a white button-up shirt, black pants, and black vest/tie.



Front Desk Representative

Androm Solei has run the front desk of the Bateman Hotel since it reopened one year ago. Androm doesn’t like to take orders from anybody and often has personal conflicts with management and other staff members. Androm will throw a tantrum if things aren't as expected, so this front desk clerk is a ticking time bomb.

Suggested attire: White button-up shirt, black vest, and gold nametag as an optional prop. Optional to wear a black suit or blazer.




Sylven Cane is the childlike bellboy of the Bateman Hotel. For the last six months since starting work at the hotel, Sylvan has shown to be a dedicated worker and will do anything to please the staff and guests of the hotel. With an innocent demeanor, this bellboy knows how to pull in the big tips. 

Suggested attire:  Bellboy uniform. White gloves and a bell are optional props.



Laundry Attendant

Florian Pilby is the devious laundry attendant for the Bateman Hotel. On occasion, Florian has been under investigation for pilfering things from the guests’ rooms. Strangely enough, everybody who had made an accusation disappeared before they could report the incident to authorities outside of the hotel. Be careful around this plunderer.

Suggested attire: Housekeeping costume. Laundry bag as an optional prop.



Ghost Hunter 

The host of the hit television show Ghost Hunt 101 has come to Wraith’s Cove to investigate the paranormal activity in the Bateman Hotel. Xander is staying in room #613 – next to one of the most haunted rooms in the hotel. Xander also wants to take a look at Quinn Bloom’s dolls, as they have somewhat of a reputation.

Suggested attire:  Gothic attire with optional ‘gadgets’ to pass off as ghost-hunting equipment.
