Capture the Flag is the thirty-first case in Starlight Shores and the first case situated in the Hidden Falls district.


Previously, the team was able to rescue Alice Crane and stop Sylas Myles. Dana Westcott and Chief Andrew Ramone also got engaged, and invited the team on a break to Hidden Falls, a holiday resort where people experience life in the middle ages. After going up to one of the castle balconies, Isaac Holmes (the player's partner due to Linda's request for a break from the police) and the player found the body of Maggie Hayborne, impaled through the chest by a flagpole.

During chapter 1, Aaron Hayborne (the victim's husband), Kimberly Goww (prostitute), and Murray Monroe (the victim's best friend) were suspected of Maggie's murder. At the end of the chapter, the team received word that a fight had broken out in a field.

The team discovered that the fight had broken out between jester William Andrew and resort worker Orrison Cleefed. When asked what had occurred, Orrison told Isaac and the player that William wasn't being friendly enough to the customers and eventually confronting him turned into a physical altercation. Due to this altercation, they were classed as suspects. At the end of chapter 2, it was revealed Maggie was filing for a divorce from Aaron.

Throughout the case many potential motives were revealed for Maggie's murder, it was discovered that Aaron was actually in a relationship with Maggie's best friend Murray, and Maggie planned to divorce Aaron and expose his relationship. It was also revealed that Maggie had paid Kimberly to try and seduce Aaron to see if he'd remain faithful before finding out about his affair with Murray and that Maggie would constantly laugh at William, making him do stupid tasks to ridicule him. She would also pester Orrison if she could have a job, even though Orrison denied her request.

Eventually the team incriminated Aaron for Maggie's murder, after confessing he explained while panicking that Maggie planned to reveal his relationship with Murray. He said that people couldn't know that he was gay so he and Murray decided to kill Maggie before she could reveal the truth. Murray told her to come to the balcony for a talk, when she arrived, Aaron impaled her body on the flagpole, before removing the flagpole in hope to remove it from the scene, before being interrupted by the player and having to hide. Alexander Donovan sentenced him to 25 years in jail for the gruesome murder of Maggie Hayborne and Murray 5 years in jail for assisting Aaron.

During the AI, Kimberly requested their help after being sent death threats. After asking who he was they discovered his name was Gerard Layton, the psychotic fan of late actress Sophia Diamandia. They immediately went to arrest him, finding him hiding in a field. After confronting him, he spoke about how he loved her and she refused to marry him. Deeply concerned once more, Isaac decided to arrest Gerard, sending him off to Edgewater lunatic asylum.

I'll play you like puppets and watch you dance.
My great game is beginning, and don't worry, everyone is playing.
I know you'll have fun.

—The message found in Naomi's coffee

Also during the AI, Naomi asked for the player's help after finding a note in a drink she bought. After examing the note, the player and Isaac found a concerning note from an anomyous person. Telling the Chief about the note, he told them not to worry, assuming it was a childish prank but Isaac told the player to stay wary as he has a very bad feeling about Hidden Falls.

At the end of the case, Adam told everyone that a jousting comeptition was coming up soon and that they all should attend!
