Greetings all, I am the Game Master Rudolf, formerly Rudolf the Heretic. I return from my truancy to celebrate the completion of this story. I have constructed this Gameboard as a retelling of a rather infamous game played quite some time ago. A third of a millennium has passed since that time, and a revisit to this kakera is in order for the 26th anniversary of Rokkenjima’s tragedy. As such, I shall deny the involvement of all but the most relatively new members of Seacats to act as my opponents.

This thread is simply a waiting room and sign-up sheet for all of the detectives who will be involved. Again, only people who are new enough that they did not post on the previous website (www.imageboard4free.com/board/seacats/gameboard/)

The detectives in this story shall all be given a personal piece to use in this Gameboard. The format of this game will be purely empirical. That is, observation of the events as they unfold through the eyes of the pieces. Red vs. Blue will be restricted throughout the game, as observation should be more than sufficient to solve most, if not all, of the mysteries.

How to play: The detectives’ pieces shall be given the power of GREEN TEXT which they will use to denote the actions of their pieces. It’s a role-playing game of sorts, so make the green text a statement of how you are going to act, leaving anything else in the post to normal black text.

Remember that your pieces are just that, pieces. As such, they are denied any sort of meta-powers such as detective’s authority or Blue truth. However, this also has its pros, as you will be able to physically examine rooms, interrogate suspects, and truly feel this Umineko style story. I may also include sound pieces at times to help with the mood. I encourage you to listen to them in the background whilst reading/playing.

The date set for this game’s beginning shall be the 4th of October 2012 and will take a few days to play. Please sign up in this thread beforehand so that I know who is going to be playing.

Good, good, very good. Five is a good number. I can still allow more, but this is certainly a good number.

A friend in real life I take it? That's fine, 6 is a good number as well. (diminishing returns probably won't affect the detective count until 8+)

It is time, once again, to play with the endless catbox of the dark and stormy days of October 4th and 5th of the year 1986, on the island of Rokkenjima.
The family conference starts once again, and tragedy lurks from the shadows, awaiting the witch's signal to wage hell on the Ushiromiya Family.
This will be a game of wits and intelligence, come and flow here, the witch is calling you, detectives of all ranks and witch-hunters.
The teaparty of the witch is opened for all, sipping tea, solving mysteries, there is no party like a witch's.

Scene of the Golden Witch


The rules of this game will be quite special. The story will be given twilight by twilight, and at each twilight you will have a limited number of blue
to use to solve each murder.
I am not expecting you to solve all the mysteries with the given number of blues, especially since they will be very limited, at the end, you will be given a certain
number of blue in order to solve all the remaining mysteries that you didn't solved yet, mainly concerning the howdunnits.
Whodunnit and Whydunnit will be dealt with separately, though of course, you better be thinking about these early on.

Yeah it sounds good.

To clarify, "there is a stockpile of blues to solve for each mystery, everyone participating can take from the stockpile, in other words they are sharing the blues and it's almost like a team effort".

That's the basic rules for the blue usage correct?
>> No. 8242 edit
Thanks ~

Yes, that is correct. This is why I put the "trolling blue" rule, to avoid any abuse.

Even Erika the one that calimed to be the best detective ever was shocked since she didn't had an explanation for this murder.....
certainly it wasn't suicide

Krauss lied dead in Natsuhi's room, with his dear Natsuhi in his arms.

both were found dead in Natsuhi's room.

but this scene wasn't what was shocking Erika....her seals were INTACT yet they appeared dead.....

Not only that, Natsuhi had a napkin with a message saying :

Eva,Kyrie Rosa, Rudold and Hideyoshi searched in all the room.
but it was useless....there was no trace of a key or a device used to open the door.

I think I will give the second twilight to you this time........
The seal isn't actually set

the culprit shot them from outside the room ( with a long range weapon, like a gun...

So this murder is solved, and the culprit could be pretty much anyone.
Does that mean that there's more twilight for this kakera ?

Indoctrination of the Golden Witch
Alrighty, I might as well post an extremely easy game for you all. Well, it should be easy, I hope.
Naturally, I won't bother with character interactions or anything like that. Just summarized form. Also, keep in mind that the murders will start (and end) on Day 1. (Why waste time, after all?) Also - I'm not really going by the twilights here. Think of this as a basic whodunnit.
So let's get started:

The Ushiromiya family arrives for the annual family conference on Rokkenjima. To make it simple, let's say that in this universe Ushiromiya Rosa does not exist. The extension of this would be: Ushiromiya Maria was never born and does not exist. All the other members of the family that have been established to exist in the normal Umineko universe still exist, alive or dead. Those people are: Battler, Kyrie, Hideyoshi, Eva, Krauss, Natsuhi, Kinzo, Rudolf, George and Jessica. The servants from the standard Umineko universe still exist and exist on the island, alive or dead.

During this time, the cousins have gathered in the guesthouse and unpacking. The adults have left for the mansion. At this moment in time, George, Battler and Jessica are in Guest Room 1. Shannon and Kanon are in the servant's room. Genji and Nanjo are in Kinzo's study. The adults are gathered in the parlor of the mansion and are discussing the issue of inheritance. Ghoda and Kumasawa are talking in the kitchen.

The clouds are starting to gather. A storm appears to be coming.
A shipwreck occurs and detective Furudo Erika is washed on the shore. She makes her way to the guesthouse, where she is given clothes and introduced to the cousins and servants.

Erm, well, I tried to give it on some occasions, if memory serves me correctly (if I had to guess, I probably made them too vague or something). And yeah, I think I'll make another game, one that won't use loopholes (the irony is, I actually don't like those kinds of games, either...), but until then, I think I'm better off trying to solve one, at the moment.

Well, it's usually best to put the clues in the original "story' I think.

If you want to participate in a game, well Lion said he would prepare a new kakera after his last, but it seems he has other things to take care of. I'm personally finally typing my gameboard in. It will be much smaller than what I had originally in mind but at least I'll be able to finish it this way. Don't get your hopes up though, It will take a long time to be done because of my laziness

Oh shoot, I was so sure about evil Rosa.

Yeah, I also like games that have most or all of the clues in the narrative.

I have a fairly complicated board that will turn up on here sooner or later, I just need to iron out a couple of plot kinks.

The rain was falling through the window and Rosa was already having regrets about Maria`s Cold. Maria got it while looking for her rose

George Battler and Jessica supposedly were taking care of her.

She herself asked them to take care of that. However that was 3 hours ago.

Kyrie told Rosa that Maria should be fine and that she should not bother them until tomorrow.

Natsuhi told her with a quiet and nice smile. that she should see if they are okay

Eva and Hideyoshi were quiet as if they were nervous

and Krauss and Rudolf acted as if they did something wrong.

Rosa then decided to see the cousins. So she left the room, and went to the guest house.

I'm against the idea of the culprits being already known. We, as players, will be able to bend our theories and try to basically make everything fit with them as culprits, eventually reaching the solution with guesswork.

In my opinion, you should make a new one from scratch.

...Besides, while it may be interesting, knowing the culprit from the get-go isn't very fun to me.

I would gladly accept another challenge hihi.

Oh, maybe I'm missing something there, but what exactly did the culprit prepare?

Someone had TOO much time to prepare the room for the murders

I imagine it has to do with:
> She herself asked them to take care of that. However that was 3 hours ago.

Well, that, or it was referring to the fact that Natsuhi pretty much lives on the island and could've had everything set up long before the family conference...
