BGM: A Long Story

With hazey eyes you, for the last time, awake in this god forsaken place. No longer the dark cell you once saw, but a bright light had filled the room.

The creature sat in the corner, it asked you nothing.

Despite this you feel you can still get a response. The final attempt at a secret rule...

The player's life force and Jessica's life force are connected. When one dies, the other must also die.

With a small mumble the creature confirms.

"The player shares the same fate as Jessica. If Jessica dies so does the player."

The lights then snap off and the curtains close.

BGM: Perplexed People

The man sat in the tearoom, pondering the latest outcome. It had come to a close as expected, well, it should have at least.

Five attempts over; all five times succumbed to fate. Perhaps it was better this way, he thought. If he had his way, overcoming fate would have been a much more boring outcome. People like suspense and mystery.

He stood up from the chair and walked forward in no particular direction. He recited the words he had repeated not so long ago.

"I wish you the best in bringing the culprit to justice."

Surely it was a challenge yes, but not impossible. Either way it never ended up being achieved so he was left with this.

Third Thread:

Welcome, players and lurkers, to the endgame of Concealment of the Golden Witch. If you made it this far, you're either a player or very, very patient.

The rules are very simple: Both players will send me a private message detailing their theories. The player closest to the truth will win. In the case that the player's theories are similar, the player with more events and motives explained will be the winner.

There will be no other tricks or twists afterwards.

Really, none.

Incredibly, you accomplish your improbable goal. The last thing you hear from Kinjo is a wail of unfathomable pain. As his finger releases from the trigger button, nothing happens. It looks like he was bluffing.

This post exists in order to challenge my opponent, Kinjo Goldbar. Should he accept, he will play a final game in order to try and prove his innocence.

The difficulty is impossible. The truth of the matter has been declared in red ink.

To be continued in Chase of the Golden Witch.

The rules of the endgame are as follows. You have three blues with which to solve each of the three clauses that took place within locked rooms. I shall strike them down with red, should they be incorrect.

Should you succeed in solving all three, the illusion of the witch will shatter, and you will be tasked with determining the true culprit of this gameboard...

Or should I say, culprits.

On this gameboard, at least two individuals have committed murder. Someone who has committed murder is referred to as a 'culprit'.

On this gameboard, there exists at least one accomplice who has aided a culprit.

Erika faced away again and concentrated even harder...
As though twisting the knob on a radio, she turned all noise and idle thoughts down to zero.

Let's go, Furudo Erika.
Detective, Furudo Erika!

BGM: http://listenonrepeat.com/watch/?v=QN3lQ2FaU-8

Let's not waste any time. I'll start by exposing the identity of the 'witch' herself. "Beatrice the Golden", who sent the letter at dinner and kept leaving all those other letters for us as the game went on!

We saw from this fantasy scene that "Beatrice" was responsible for the first clause. That means the person who sent those letters is the same person who killed Krauss and Hideyoshi. So rather than asking who killed Krauss and Hideyoshi, we should ask who could have sent that first letter! If you think about it, the pool of suspects is quite limited. The will had to be replaced before dinner. That means none of the family members who arrived on the boat could have done it, because I was with them the whole time from when they arrived. It would have to be one of Krauss's family or the servants! If you think about it, the move of replacing the will was an offensive directed specifically at Krauss and Natsuhi. Not only did it throw off their move of announcing Krauss as the official successor, but the letter itself specifically talked about "the way the epitaph was solved" being one of the reasons for the murders. So who would have a motive to do something like that?

There were several clues that made it seem very likely that Shannon was the witch. The most obvious was a clue relating to the way Rosa and Maria were drugged.

We can see from this part that Shannon was left unattended with a "doctor's bag" for quite some time. So she could easily have replaced the sedatives that he was going to give to Rosa and Maria! But at the time, I thought she was possibly only the culprit for that one murder. After all, she was gone from the island for the rest of the game, right? But then there was something that made me absolutely certain that there was more to it than that.

After going through the secret passage behind the portrait, we found a dock...with a boat berthed there? What could that possibly be doing there? Well, we only saw one boat in this game - the boat in which Kawabata brought the family. The boat which Shannon then boarded! I learned from my conversation with Jessica and Maria that the hidden mansion Kuwadorian exists in this game. Thinking about it, there would have to be a secret dock somewhere for supplies to be delivered for Beatrice II. The final piece of evidence is the most damning. Look closely at the part where Shannon departed with Kawabata.

I turned my back on the departing ship before it had gone too far. But most importantly, there was then a red truth saying that "from now on, no one enters or leaves the island". That would surely make it impossible for Shannon to be on the island from this point on, right? But there's a loophole!

The issue here is the third clause. We know that there were two people involved in this murder - a culprit and an 'accomplice'. But that's odd - if the witch was behind this, why couldn't Shannon have set the trap herself? Why get an accomplice to do it for her? Well, my theory is that Shannon did, in fact, set the trap herself - and someone else set it off for her quite by accident! An accidental 'culprit'; I confirmed with Ouro that such a thing was possible. And it would explain quite a few things that were out of place about this murder! The most obvious being why Natsuhi ran away - and why Eva was there in the first place!

There are several pieces of evidence that lead me to believe that this murder was an accident. The first is that bloody handprint on the window. Leaving that handprint was a careless move - not the sort of thing you'd expect from a premeditated murder. The way her head was so unceremoniously flung out of the window would also suggest that the culprit was in a rushed panic; they didn't expect to have to deal with this. But who was the accidental culprit? It could be Jessica, but wouldn't it make more sense to suspect the person who immediately ran away from the crime scene afterwards? That's right - the second culprit was Natsuhi!

I heard Natsuhi whisper something to Genji when we entered Kinzo's study. Considering that the two of them mysteriously left shortly afterwards, I imagine it was something to do with that. What if Eva overheard something, and realised they were intending to leave? Let's say that Eva escaped in the commotion before Natushi and Genji did, and then ran to the second floor and waited to see what Natsuhi was going to do, hoping to find some evidence that she was the culprit. Then, when Natsuhi entered her room, Eva enter

The silhouettes shatter, one by one, until only you and a lone figure are left. Eventually, a foul light illuminates them from within, and Shannon bows before you.

"Congratulations, Furudo Erika. You've solved the mystery of the witch... but not the mystery of the gameboard." She brings her hands out from behind her, and reveals a rifle, into which she begins slowly loading bullets, speaking as she does. Each word from her mouth causes the bullets to glow red, and a sinking feeling engulfs your stomach. Her red binds you, sealing your scythe, and tearing away at your beautiful theory.

"Captain Kawabata didn't aid me in any of this. He really did intend to take me away from the island. Furthermore, I, Shannon, was the only person on that boat other than him when it left the dock. Finally, after we left the island, Captain Kawabata never set foot on the island again. Despite all this, I did return to the island after I appeared to leave, and continued to maintain the illusion of the Golden Witch."

"Despite knowing every detail of it, I didn't set out to sabotage Krauss' plan, nor did I do so inadvertently. "

"I didn't kill Ushiromiya Maria. I never intended for her to die. Her mother, on the other hand, I killed for her role in my predecessor's demise."

"I didn't kill Ushiromiya Jessica. Furthermore, when the family was reading the original will in Kinzo's study, Ushiromiya Jessica was already dead."

"I didn't kill Ushiromiya Krauss."

"I killed Ushiromiya Eva."

Good day. (Naturally, if you find the usage of the word "day" to simply not be true by the time you happen to read this, you are more than welcome to pick between morning, midday, afternoon, evening and night.)

I'm not sure if there is anyone who might remember me, but I'm a lurker that posted around here a couple of times about a year or so ago (if memory serves me correctly, at least - hell, even I don't remember me). My previous gameboard ended up being a bit of a mess for those who might remember it, as well.

Well - I come here, bringing another one. This one with hopefully a bit more success. However, one which is also quite a bit larger than that last one and one which would probably take a lot of space if I were to post it directly here, so I put everything in a .doc file which you can get here:


As you've probably figured out, the name of the gameboard is "Lack of the Golden Witch". The reason behind the title will become fairly obvious once you see what the gameboard is all about.

Please note that this game is quite a bit different than what you're perhaps used to playing around here - both in terms of the narrative structure and the way the game will ultimately be played. Yet again, to save space, all the rules are included in the actual doc, so I won't talk further on that.

Finally, I would like to say that this gameboard is open to everyone interested in solving it. Hell, the more the merrier. It's always good to have a bunch of people shake their heads in disappointment at the solutions to my mysteries than just one.

All that said, good luck and have fun!

Reading takes the most time to do, I really wish I had a whiteboard. Battler had put a different key inside of Krauss' pocket, thus allowing him to lock the door on the way out and keep the key.

Congratulations! I acknowledge your victory.

As the rules of the game were such where the whydunnit was not necessary to be explained (you got it, anyway) - the game is yours.

This is the full solution to the game (I wrote it rather hastily, so I apologize if some aspects of it are unclear).

Firstly, allow me to state that Ushiromiya Battler had two accomplices in this crime. Both of these accomplices will be revealed through this solution.

So, let us begin:

All Four Problems:
Earlier in the day, Battler had poisoned the sugar. The poison was the cause of death for all the victims.

'The person who commits the murders' and 'the person planning the murders' are two separate people. Only one of these is the 'culprit' the previous rule refers to.

The creature hesitates, but with a grin it dribbles out another red. You get the feeling this is some how generous.

"...Good enough. Murder is not exclusively reserved for the culprit. An accomplice is able to commit murder just like the culprit."

With your solid hit, you once again drift off, preparing for the last, and final round...
