Lightning flashed across the sky, splitting and fragmenting the dark grey ceiling of clouds like cracks spider-webbing across a broken window. A particularly loud boom of thunder arrived a couple moments later, further enhancing the idea that the stormy barrier had been broken through by some great force.

It was around four in the afteroon, though there was no way to tell that from the color of the sky, and a solitary human figure had just washed up on the beaches of Rokkenjima like so much driftwood. Would this person be a savior, or a herald of doom?

"A full search of the mansion could take hours, and I'm not comfortable with leaving Battler's group out of sight for that long. If we're going to continue with the mansion, we should focus on the less frequently-visited rooms. Perhaps the boiler room might be a sensible choice, unless there's anything else you think is worth checking on this floor?"

Hideyoshi frowns, but shakes his head. "I can't think of anywhere else in particular. This floor is mostly for everyday family use. Krauss' study, Jessica's room, places like that. I suppose if I were hiding I'd pick somewhere less likely to be used."

Genji says solemnly, "The boiler room would be such a place, and is difficult to secure. If another room in the mansion is to be searched, it would be a good choice."

Eva looks to you, questioningly. "I think at this point we're following your lead. Though I'd like to get to the chapel now in case this storm gets much worse..."

October 4th, 9:00 P.M.

It's almost 9 at night when your group finishes a decent search of the boiler room, thanks to the various shady nooks and crannies that it holds, along with a few cabinets of hand tools, rat poison, and the like. The floor is hard-packed earth and seems undisturbed. The furnace is hot and working. The bar is set on the courtyard door, at least as set as it could reasonably be. It cannot be opened from the outside, at any rate.

There are plenty of shadows where a person could hide, especially a small area for extra storage under the stairs, but all these places are checked and devoid of people.

"Uuu! Maria knows what's next! To the chapel! Uuu!" Maria looks like she's playing a game of hide and seek, and is more than ready to head on over to the chapel, despite the darkness and the storm.

Greetings, seacats.
I challenge you to a very special game today.

The game is actually not done. In fact, it started just now. The medium is a bit special, too.

If you wish to look at it, go here.
http://pariahvision.net/Umineko

Each sunday there will be a new twilight, and around the 1st February 2015, you can try to pinpoint the culprit and see the truth / tea party. Speculations, as well as opinions, are welcome, of course.

Sadly, I could not keep my promise. Working on two large projects for months now, so barely any time to code the game.

Well, I can show you the menu screen, at least. I will try to finish in this year, but my projects take priority (you can guess why).

Welcome, gameboardians. I believe it's time to continue our adventure.
Let's continue where we left.

Seeing Ozaki, Beatrice slightly escapes from Battler's grab and welcomes him as well.

"Welcome, guest! You must be another of the survivors," she energetically says.

"Well, we were trying to become acquainted with our guest over here," Battler admits. "I'm Ushiromiya Battler, and my she's fiancee Yasuda" he introduces to the detective.

"I'd prefer to be called Beatrice!" she immediately announces, trying to cover her red face behind Battler.

"Like I said, my name is Kinjo Goldbar. I am just a nerd who likes to pretend he's a doctor, but I'm just Ozaki's roommate. I was on vacation on that boat when suddenly it crashed and I turned up on this island. My favorite color is orange, and my favorite animal is the penguin. My hobbies include reading comic books and playing Nintendo games. Also, my sign is Aries, and I'm not too sure about my blood type. But I like girls with long hair, brown or black, and a large chest, so unfortunately you're really not my type at all (both of you)."

Kenji stands up over the crumpled body. "...She is gone."

The other guests mumble in question. Soft sobs coming from her friend kneeling next to the corpse.

"Dead? Just like that?" the stout man questions.

Kenji turns to the rest of the guests, "Even if the power comes back on I will need everyone to remain here. This is murder."

"That might be possible if they were lucky, but it is unreliable to introduce poison in that way. Hmm, I need to check something with Kaori." Kaori is then beckoned and soon just the three of you are alone from the rest.

"Erina had a number of drinks tonight, right?" Kenji starts.

"Well, only three, and some of my own drink," Kaori says.

Kenji rubs his chin seemingly recalling back to something, "She ordered her third before going to the bathroom... When did she take a drink of yours?

"That was after she returned, a few minutes after."

"Alright, now do you recall if she had started to drink her third before or after going to the bathroom."

She responds quickly, "It was before, I am sure of it."
Kaori is dismissed and the two of you are left theorizing again.

You and Kenji decide that it would be about time to search through everyone's belongings.

Harada and Izumi show the contents of their pockets/purse, and shortly after Matsuo starts as well. In the back behind the group however Shuji doesn't move, his head held low as he quickly stands out with his lack of compliance.

Kenji walks up to him, "You aren't doing yourself a favor kid. If you don't empty your pockets I'll do it for you."

Shuji gives a dry laugh, "...there is no need." He brings his hand out of his pocket and throws a crushed beer can onto the ground flattened to the shape of a puck. You are close enough to make out smudged lipstick along the rim, the same from the others. "You got me."

Kenji picks up the can and smells it, "Yeah, it appears so. Then Sakura was-"

"My sister," he announces, "The sister who I have now avenged."

Kaori looks on with dread as the rest of the group watches.

"Oh don't give me that look," he yells at Kaori. "She deserved it! Time and time again, I told myself it wasn't anyone's fault. That it was just bad luck... and I thought I had gotten over it... But I saw her, Kaori. Last year, at some club. Just by coincidence, as soon as my sister was brought up she dismissed her death like it was nothing!"

You stood outside of the hotel the next day, refreshed from the night of rest. The police had arrived and with the confession took Shuji away. The other members of the party were questions of course but were eventually dismissed. While everything was cleaned up nicely, you sat organizing the logic behind this event.

It turned out the one who turned off the power was the friend of Shuji who worked at the hotel. His intuition proved to be the true hero of these events, trapping the culprit right before he was about to escape. It turned out that Shuji wasn't even imployed there to begin with. You thought he had just taken a shift, but you heard that from Shuji. Thinking back on it his actions stood out. He had no idea where the coffee machine was behind the bar, nor did he really seem to know much about the hotel. The first thing you noticed upon arriving, the broken escape staircase was something that any worker would have noticed many times over, yet he had to check the side of the building.

Overall however it was the checking of the pockets which resulted in his capture. Reviewing the facts, you conclude that simply figuring out what happened to the can and the lipstick was the real problem here. There was a few possibilities, for instance first looking at the table would suggest that her third drink was missing since there was only two with lipstick (since you knew she had ordered three drinks). Harada could have taken it, mistaking it for his own since they were the same type, or maybe the Matsuo or the worker took it. Upon finding the lipstick and cloth in the bathroom however you start to question this; she could have just removed the lipstick before hand and this was just a red herring.

Looking at the facts and interrogating some more led to clues that she took a sip of Erina's drink right after returning from the bathroom, which does not have any lipstick on it(the one that was shattered was said to be empty

Kenji gives you a soft jab in the back, "Daydreaming again huh?"

With a bit of joking around you talk about the case, expressing your displeasure with how you couldn't solve it.

"Hey, I didn't even expect you to interrogate or investigate on my behalf. You collected all the pieces and didn't let anyone mess with the scene, all while being in a unfamiliar situation. Technically you did bring the truth to light. Don't be too hard on yourself, if anything I should be the one feeling bad letting you do everything when I wasn't able to control the situation. You'll get it next time right?" he finishes jokingly.

With that said the three of you enjoyed the rest of the vacation, before returning to Nagano a few days later.

THE END?

So I'm planning an oddity of a game. Something perhaps truly unique.

If you have ever played a game like Mafia or Werewolf, a social deduction game, I intend for my game to be like that. An Umineko themed Werewolf game (I guess it's Witch hunting instead of werewolf hunting but w/e)

The thing is, I want to be able to have a stack of characters to give out to players at random, each with small tidbits of information. That being the case, I need to know how many people would be interested in playing.

In Umineko there are 20ish humans available for the island (including Erika, Kinzo, and Beatrice), and 20 people is obviously too many, so I will need to be cutting characters. The game is still in the creation process so we'll see.

So far, Ozaki, anon-kun, Deadon, and Cirno have expressed interest in playing, so we need more players (preferably somewhere between the 8 to 14 range of players)

EDIT: To clarify, I will be having people assigned to their character randomly. Each player will receive a "letter from the witch" containing information pertaining to the game: their roles and perhaps a bit of information to aid them in accomplishing their goals.
