This game is an RP game. I've already invited two players who have accepted their roles, and this post acts as guidelines for the rules.

- There will be two detectives. These are the two player characters.

- The players will be in competition with each other. While they inspect a crime scene alone, they have the ability to message the GM and privately inspect evidence. Neither player can do this while the other is in the room, however, nor if another NPC is watching them.

- Both detectives can also make up to two 'secret actions' in the game. 'Secret actions' refer to actions as innocent to putting up tape markers on doors to dousing the other detective's drink with sleeping syrup. Neither player is required to use their secret actions if they wish to remain honorable.

- Both players will also have secrets regarding their back-stories. If these secrets come to light during the course of the game, the family members will become more suspicious of that character and they will have fewer opportunities to investigate. It is in the best interest of both detectives to expose the other's secret, but it is not a winning condition of the game. Evidence will appear during the game that has the potential of incriminating both detectives.

- Neither detective can romance Maria

- At the end of the game, both detectives will send the GM their theories. Whichever is closer to the truth will be named the winner.

- Have fun.

"Amy was? Well to be honest I haven't seen her for many years. We were just part of a sort of club like group back then and didn't really talk to each other much either. She liked to mess with my Mexican friend but otherwise I can't remember much. What was she saying anyway?"

I leave the chapel and then smack Gohda upside the head I mean ask him my question.

"That was such an awful day," Gohda says. "I heard the news from Krauss-sama soon after it happened. I had just baked a delicious batch of brownies and I was in such high spirits. Then, he gathered us up and informed us that Shannon-san died of an overdose of sleeping pills. Now, I wonder... if she really did call herself Beatrice, was she trying to follow the last line of that epitaph? 'Sleep peacefully, my most beloved witch, Beatrice.'"

Gohda shudders. "It gives me goosebumps just to think about. Why are you so interested?"

"I'll tell you about it later. Actually, I came here to talk to my son."

"What's up, old man?" Battler asks.

"Not here," Rudolf responds. "In private. It's important and I don't want anyone else hearing about it yet."

Battler's demeanor turns from lighthearted to weary. He leaves the room with Rudolf.

"I wonder what that was about," Jessica says when they're gone.

After a minute passes you hear a scream from outside the room. Everybody is startled, but Krauss, clearly still shaken from his father's death, jumps to his feet and runs for the doors. Presumably in search of the sound.

Rudolf and Kyrie quickly get up and head after him.

This gameboard acts as a short game just meant to regain my bearings on writing mysteries. The rules are simple:

Anyone who wishes to challenge the mystery will get two attempts to name the culprit, motive, and method of the crime in blue. They must give some kind of evidence behind their reasoning. I will respond to the evidence in red. The challenger may amend their theory or create a new one as they please.


Good luck.

Let's modify Rosa's theory a bit.....

Battler was coerced into saying things on the phone. This was probably done by George who also pushed Battler to his death, intentionally or not.

Proof is most clear in the handkerchief in Battler's hand as well as the damage to George's apparel.

This does not mean that I'm accusing George of being the [only, if applicable] culprit. I'm still most suspicious of Jessica at the moment.... mostly because of how you responded to Rosa's blue.

"...Confirmed. George coerced Battler to say things into the phone, then pushed him off of the balcony.

Human side wins, since the rest can be explained by Rosa's theory. Jessica killed the rest of the victims, used extra rope to escape from Eva and Hideyoshi's window, then re-entered when she saw that Shannon was in the room.

A massive chasm stretches into infinity, separating two endless bookcases, shelf upon shelf rising one above the other, filled with myriad volume after volume. If there’s a floor, it’s simply too far away to see; if there’s a ceiling, it rises into the heavens. No single language, style of binding, or material of paper is uniform across the volumes; she glides by, spotting one that appears to literally be a stack of papyrus scrolls wedged between two clay tablets and wrapped with sinew string.

There’s a soft breeze down the aisle, which is both peculiar and agitating. She pauses from her languid browsing, peering about at the nearby tomes… a selection of which appear to all bear roughly the same alphabet upon their faces. She floats up toward them, the breeze kicking around more intensely, as if some impatient spirit sat constricted and seething for escape. She tilts her head ever so slightly, her flight slowing and ceasing entirely as she came face-to-face with the apparent source of the gale.

She stares, for a few short moments, and with a blink the breeze ceases and every other volume around the perpetrator in question is shoved a few inches aside or away - a few even toppling out to tumble and fade into the abyss - and she reaches forward at the volume. Upon her touch it lights up, rocking side to side, the kanji illuminating a soft gold in stark contrast to the dark leather of it’s binding.

“... You’ll do,” she states as she grips the volume, the shelves vanishing to send their contents free-falling as one into abyss, leaving her in darkness with the tome in question.

She runs a fingertip along the edges of the book’s closed pages, until sliding it in and opening the book to one particular page. A series of names and details descends down both pages in simple script; a great many crossed out or faded.

“... That won’t do.”

She closes the volume, and turns about, staring off into the blackness in one particular direction. A few seconds pass, and the slightest of a twitch reaches one corner of her lips. “Oh well, I suppose I’ll have to find a few new pieces.”

You don't find anything of interest, nor is there Nanjo or anybody else to be seen on the second floor. Upon leaving the guest house you can see Nanjo, in the distance, walking on the same path as you (but ahead) toward the mansion.

Nothing in particular happens for a while, until a knock on the door is heard. After a short pause Gohda enters, and says, "My apologies, but has anybody seen Kumasawa? She's supposed to be helping me cook."

The family members would attest that nobody has seen her, but Krauss would add, "Perhaps she's still sleeping. Shannon, if you would?"

Shannon would nod and then bow, and state she'll go do that. Gohda resumes Shannon's duties for her.

Krauss asks, "What about dinner, Gohda?"

"I've left Genji to finish. It's nearly done," Gohda answers.

Shannon leaves, and Gohda sets about his business. Silence would take over the room once more after Shannon shuts the door behind her.
