BGM: Lamentation

You awoke three days later, having to hear what happened from Masato.

The police arrived at the scene but could do very little with the storm. Ichiro had gone out and braved the weather saying he knew the area better then anyone and found you on a ledge halfway down the ravine. He was not able to find Shizuka however.

The police were able to confirm afterwards that Saeko died from suffocation, later testing the pillow case found suggests it was most likely the murder weapon. Heihachiro died from the stab wound likely caused by the stick found on the roof of the Yamada house. Eiji the father who you never asked his name died from the stab wounds you found him with. After that however, not much was figured out. With the prime investigator and suspect missing it came to a standstill with the storm. Most of the evidence - what little there was - got covered up. The hardest part is that the only villagers who seemed to know anything hushed up about it.

After the storm had cleared and you had been evacuated out of the village they continued to search for the ravine but by the time they had found it she would have been certainly dead. The search effort for the body continued for a few weeks before being canceled, in hope some light would come in the summer.

You sat in the hospital hearing all the news trying to piece things together. Masato brought Yuuichi to talk with you and you were able to figure out why he asked you if you had a girlfriend. He heard Saeko talking about it with Shizuka when he had wandered out due to sleepwalking and hurt his feet. From the evidence you presume what he actually had heard was her talking about Shinjo, one of the men on the list. The police looked into the individuals on said list and found there had been potential arranged marriage meetings planned between Shizuka and them.

With a mix of confusion and outburst you duck out of sight before they can pester you any further.

The air of spring coming through the slightly opened window, you drive off prepared to move on from this incident.

BGM: Protest




"...Yeah it is finished. No problems."

A man with an eye patch holds a phone loosely by his head as he sits in a dark basement. A small light flickering in the corner.

"Necessary? ... No, I wouldn't say so. He can still be used at least."

He flips through some papers while listening whatever response from the other line.

"Something like that..."

He tells you a brief summary of what Lee told you about his background and hopping from different town every now and then.

"The old man and I were friends. One of the few connections I made through the company that I could really trust. He offered us the house here, being this far out and with his resourcefulness nobody was likely to find us. He also was been paying our living expenses.

And that's what I need to bring up. I, well, he would often come by late at night and we would visit but it was mainly so he could drop off money for us. In the morning when we found his body... well, it would have been bad if anyone found out so I took the usual from his pocket, but that's all I swear. It was just to protect our connection, nothing more."

"So he came by that night to deliver money... It's possible someone knew about the money and then tried to kill him for it, but -- why wouldn't they take it? So that must not be it. If it wasn't for money, was it a personal grudge?"

"I don't quite know. I imagine he made some enemies in his life time, but I wouldn't know any of them..."

As the two of you talk Lee pipes up again. "So what exactly happened again here?" he says referring to the spot where the body was. "He was found without any footprints around the body in the morning, yet there was some found halfway down the hill from his house?"

"Well," Jiro responds "there was no footprints around this area until Kinzaki and Masato walked over. That much I am sure of. It had already started snowing as I went to bed, around 1 in the morning."

"So in other words since those footprints were mostly filled they must have been made sometime during the night, yet if they were his, then why did none appear around the body... Any idea Box Whisperer?" he says finally directed at you.

Are you somebody new?

Yeah, I'm pretty new here. And yes, I am interested, so, where can I start and all? Are there any rules? Basically I want to learn the basics.

The rules are listed in this link. You don't have to read it all, but it does a good job of documenting the types of games we play around here.

As for playing in a game, were you hoping to play as a player or as a game master?

If you want to play as a player (like a detective) in someone else's game, you just need to find someone who is willing to start/host a new game.

If you want to play as a game master (like a dungeon master) you need to create a story, determine how many players you want (and if you want any specific players) and what kind of game you want to host.

I'd recommend reading some of the examples listed in the rules page to get a feeling for the types of players and games that go on around here. We tend to be pretty friendly and open to new games, but some players certainly have different kinds of play styles than others

I don't mind either roles. I can do both pretty well, so, I might switch between the two. Also, thanks for the link. I'll be sure to read it.

"Oh, I thought you said something about it," he says a little confused.

Masato and you clean up everything for breakfast and Yuuichi goes to play games. Masato pulls you off to the side out of hearing range of him.

"So what do you plan to do? I understand if you don't want to get involved, but if the police aren't going to get here any time soon then, well..."

I had the idea early in the year to make a gameboard with multiple authors, similar to the Detection Club's "The Floating Admiral".

Our version went like this; One person would write a part, then the one who follows would try to solve it and write their part including hints for who they thought the culprit was. After finishing we went over our theories and howdunits, then made sure that there was a true solution that could work for the whole game.

Tahyllis made an initial scenario, I then did the prologue and a closed room following Tahyllis' part, then GreatEqualizer, finally Daedon finished the rest. I will act as the GM and respond to your theories.

This game is open for any number of people to try and solve. We will go one closed room at a time and at the end the whodunit can be attempted. After that is finished I'll post what authors originally theorized for each others parts.

Since you say its the last thing you'd try I'll just answer it now. It was a different poison ingested before dinner. It was a delayed effect. Specifically when you see him talking with Kyrie. It finally killed him in the guesthouse around 6 hours or so later.

Alright, that is all for the howdunits. Answer who it was and how each mystery happened with them in mind. I'll wait a bit in case Rune or anyone else also wants to post a theory. After that I will post the intended solution, as well as the theories the authors had for each others.
>> No. 18600 edit

The mastermind is Kyrie. The accomplices are Rudolf, Eva, Rosa and Hideyoshi.

The whole murders were set up to corner Natsuhi and Krauss. The cousins died of an unfortunate death.
Rudolf and Eva used themself as sacrefices.

letter and dummy: Rosa gave Maria the letter and prepared the dummy and stick the umbrella on it.
dining room: Eva and Nanjo's food was poisoned. Kumasawa aided with the prank to lure Nanjo outside. The meal was swapped to make sure nobody but Eva die in the study. Her death is the pretense to go in Kinzo's study.
study: Natsuhi or Krauss ordered Kanon to bring Kinzo to the furnace and hide the key in an arranged place. Genji gave this key to the group.
boiler room: Kinzo was burnt to hide his death.
servant room: Nanjo died of poison. Someone splitted up from the 5 man-group (Hideyoshi or Rosa) and killed Kumasawa and Godha (he was not planned and was thrown out the window). The murderer escaped via window. Kyrie and Rudolf pretended to be "clueless" in front of Kanon and joined the other group.
parlor: It's an accident.
guest house: Kyrie, Rosa aqnd/or Hideyoshi damaged Rudolf's body and killed Genji.

I think you'd find it hard for the large group to split up without anyone saying anything, but none the less here is the ending (also written by Daedon). I'll post the other author's solutions when I find the time.


With a final flourish, the great Lambdadelta put the last words on the page. The entire work glowed, signifying that it was complete and contained no errors. With a cackle, the group of three once more disappeared around the corner as the Witch of Certainty called out, “Aaaaaand ACTION!”
