"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!”

"You're joking, right?" Beatrice asked, looking up from the script she was most of the way through with. Upon seeing the expression on Goat-kun's face, though, she looked back to the script. "Of course you're not."

Goat-kun seemed about to reply, when Asmodeus burst into the room. Her hair was soaked in mud, blood, and rain. Her outfit was in tatters, and her face had a look that defined frustration. She stomped into the room and glared at Beatrice silently.

Beatrice smiled back, innocently. "Oh hi Asune! How was your game?"

In reply, Asmodeus grabbed the white bag of gummy candies that Beatrice had brought with her. Reaching in she pulled out a few and jammed them in her mouth. Chewing angrily, she kept her eyes locked on Beatrice. After she swallowed, she poked her finger against Beatrice's collarbone for emphasis as she said, "You and I are going to have a long talk someday about how much you owe me for that little stunt." She turned and walked back out, shouting over her shoulder, "And I'm taking the damn candy!"

Beatrice and Goat-kun blinked a few times at her exit, then turned back to each other. "I mean, don't get me wrong, Goat-kun," said Beatrice, "I applaud the effort you put into this. But I don't think we can pull it off. For one, we don't have any kind of orchestra."

In response, Goat-kun brought her to a side door. Opening it, he revealed the other six Sisters of Purgatory determinedly practicing various instruments.

Beatrice looked in, sighed, and looked to Goat-kun, who was doing his best to not seem like a little kid begging his parents for a toy.

It seems that in the end, the motive was simpler than I expected. I guess I didn't need to quite make it so complicated with Maria being brainwashed/indoctrinated/traumatized to believe in the Golden Witch. And Rosa trying to escape the crushing pressures of the name Ushiromiya and also having had a terrible life because of her siblings fits with the sentiments expressed in "I Am Free" a little more naturally than my theory.

Rosa and Gohda being in love I didn't expect. It certainly does explain why they end up working together to commit murder; to be an accomplice to murder, your relationship would have to be pretty strong, huh?

And a female goat-head makes a bit more sense than Rosa, I'll admit. I was just guessing, really.

Out of curiosity, what gave you the idea to make an Umineko musical? Or did it just come to you one day? It was a very amusing gameboard, and it was nice being entertained in between the scenes of grisly murder.

And you said we could request information after the game is complete. Well, while the solution's out of the bag, I am curious: how did Rosa and Gohda end up meeting and falling in love? It sounds like a very interesting story.

And speaking of interesting stories, any info on how Rosa, Maria, and Gohda are doing in the "Golden Land"?
>> No. 18531 edit
Heh, I should have really guessed the bit with the receipt. Overall, a very entertaining game.
I liked the foreshadowing for everything, and how all the locked rooms were different in some way so getting the solution wasn't just guessing around.
I also never would have guessed Rosa and Gohda being in love. Was there anything in the story that was meant to hint at it? Well, it DOES make more sense than her just 'hiring' him or something. (and caring enough not to kill him like the rest)

Well, thanks for this gameboard.

The idea for the musical? In truth I was just driving to work one day, with my music on shuffle, and Let It Go was followed by Birth of a New Witch. I remember thinking, "Heh, the gold never bothered her anyway." After that, one thing just led to another. I do owe a lot to Cheshire, though. If he hadn't groaned at the line when I brought it up in Skype, it may never have come to pass. If I make someone groan, that just tells me I'm onto something, and I can't just, ahem, let it go.

Strangely enough, there's not much to tell about Gohda and Rosa's romance. It was very simple, which is one of the reasons why Rosa liked it so much. Gohda was hired, they met, hit it off, and fell in love. Rosa had to spend much more time on the island helping Natsuhi and Krauss maintain the illusion of her father, so there was plenty of time for romance to bloom. Lots of secret walks in the forest and along the beach, a few romantic dinners in the Golden Room, things like that. He also was a good surrogate father for Maria, much better than any of the failed romances Rosa had been in since Maria's real father left. In short, theirs was a simple and pure romance, except for the whole serial murder thing.

As for how they're doing? Well, I haven't found any evidence of them, but that isn't surprising considering they changed their names. However, I like to think that they're doing just fine. Maybe Gohda is a celebrity chef. Maybe Rosa is a successful designer. Maybe Maria's gotten all grown up and had children of her own, though I hope she still practices her special magic and has passed it on. Who knows? I'm content letting them have their own catbox, so that they can always be happy.


I'm glad you liked it!

Yeah, there wasn't much to hint at the

I just noticed something. The final FANTASY scene ("Finale") describes Battler as being shot in the forehead. In truth, he was shot from behind. While Battler's death was certainly the least mysterious of the bunch, it does lead me to think about the other clever tricks played and misdirection executed. Such as how Maria doesn't open the door for Rosa in the FANTASY segment. I got so hung up on that as a "clue" that I ignored alternate possibilities for awhile.

Basically, this board had some really great misdirection. Even the red was always very carefully worded to avoid spoiling the truth. You gamemastered the board very impressively in my opinion.

Well... there's not much more to say. Thanks again for this gameboard. It was a lot of fun, and I really enjoyed coming up with theory after theory, even if I wasn't the best at cracking some of these locked rooms. So long for now, and hopefully I get to engage you in some more gameboard-style debate soon.

Welcome, all, to a game of social deduction. A game of lies and betrayal, with 11 players each holding varying information.

This game is to be played like a game of Werewolf or Mafia. There are the traitors, the witches; and there are the innocents, the humans.

We will play in a daytime-nighttime format, with the witches acting during the night and the entire cast pointing fingers and voting to eliminate others during the day. Elimination occurs when one receives a majority vote (must be 51% or more).

Remember that you cannot reveal who you are to anyone (unless the specific criteria is met for Island Idiot)

I shall make it public the jobs that can exist within this game, so as to have no accusations of foul play:

Human - Ordinary villager. Typically are given some information to offset their lack of information

"Kanon is not furniture, Rosa-obasan. He is a human being, just like anyone, and is allowed to have his own opinions. I know that Kanon-kun is innocent, and Kanon-kun knows that I am innocent. However, that is all that we can say for certain. If he believes you are truly the witch, then he has the right to voice his opinion!"

"However, just to be clear, as it currently stands, the votes against Battler-kun are: Rosa-obasan, Maria-chan, and Genji-san. Grandfather and I are willing to vote against him as well, if we find his counter-argument lacking. Kanon-kun is voting against Rosa-obasan."

"George-niisan, Shannon-chan, you've both gone quiet. Eva-obasan, what do you think? And Battler-kun, please... I don't want to believe you're behind this, but you need to convince us at this point."

The game appears to be dead, most likely on account of the slowness of trying to play werewolf on an imageboard. As such, I will be posting the information regarding identities and relationships.

Dear Kinzo,

You are a witch.

The other witches are Genji and Eva.

If you make it out of this alive, perhaps we can once again be together.

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.
