Nightmare of the Golden Witch


Admittedly, this is a rather cruel gameboard of high difficulty. Or maybe it's not? I don't know, this is the first time I've done one of these things.

In any case, I present you this challenge. The rules are similar to those in Redaction. I don't have to give a red truth if I think that you're just shotgunning, making a theory without anything to back it up or that there's a flaw in your reasoning/logic. At times like these, I will probably ask a question for you to explain, point out a contradiction or ask for proof. Note, though, when I say proof I just mean hinting/foreshadowing of your solution. No need to find hard evidence proving your blue beyond a shadow of a doubt. Still, I will happily provide reds otherwise.

In any case, the game is the same as always. Deny the witch, find the human culprit, show how they did it!

And, more importantly, remember to have fun. Or... at least try to.

Good luck, fellow Witch Hunters!

Well, damn. I did not expect it to be gotten this fast. Then again, I also didn't anticipate people getting the narcolepsy trick off the bat... Well, then, let's finish this off by revealing the truth to the world!

The Mystery of the Disappearing Parents:
As you all worked out so quickly, Battler Ushiromiya is narcoleptic. As a result, halfway through his coffee (Gohda intentionally used decaf just in case he ever needed to make Battler into a patsy or the like, but you didn't need to work that one out. As for how he knew about Battler's condition, he WAS one of the servants who took Battler's coat...) he passed out. While asleep, everyone left. Not realizing any time had passed, it seemed as if all the adults had disappeared into thin air!

Maria's Murder: Once again, Battler fell asleep. Being semi-concious, he mistook the sounds of knocking as the sounds of his own heartbeat as he fell into a deep slumber. Meanwhile, Maria happily opened the door for the killer, Gohda, who proceeded to go full-Watanagashi on her like's it's 1983! Battler later woke up to see the scene and fled.

The Cousin's Murder: After dinner, Geoge and Jessica retired to the servant's room with Gohda to play cards with Shannon and Kanon. However, upon entering, Gohda proceeded to backstab them. Literally. Shannon and Kanon, meanwhile, were busy being corpses (as Gohda had killed them during or before dinner, either way works.) Upon leaving, Gohda locks the door with the master key he took from Genji or Kumasawa and applies the seal. Easy peasy.

The Disappearance of Genji and Kumasawa:
Let's rewind to before Battler arrived on the island. Gohda corners Genji and Kumasawa in the kitchen and murders them. After all, even Genji admits he's the strongest among them. Next up, he cooks them into

Genji and Kumasawa was inside George and Jessica's stomachs.

It's crafty. However, I think it might be a slippery slope.

You said Genji and Kumasawa bodies escaped the servant's room in George and Jessica's bellies. But didn't they only consumed a portion of Genji and Kumasawa's remains? For instance, let's say George only ate Genji's mushed up heat-seeking missile. I mean, you wouldn't count a severed male sexual organ as a whole body, would you?

I quite enjoyed it! The narcolepsy would definitely have been the hardest point for me, but it was plenty hinted at when I knew what to look for.

Once that was essentially proven true, everything else just sort of fell into place.

Though I still want to know how Gohda actually dealt with the capture and kill on the parents.

Well, sure. It's a bit... sneaky, like that. But Umineko is wordplay central, so I think it's pretty fair. Though, to be clear, what I think makes it okay here is that the amount in George and Jessica's stomach is approximately equal in proportion to all the other parts of Genji and Kumasawa's corpses. So, it's not like there's a really big part and a really small part of their body somewhere else.

Does that make sense?


Glad to hear it! As for how Gohda captured and killed the parents, well... He was armed and prepared, whereas they would have been unarmed and asleep when he started killing them considering it was around 4-5am or so...

Hence, it's not unreasonable that he simply shot them one by one without too much difficulty.

Well, you know what they say.

If at first you screw up, the second time do it decently, then the third time kinda fuck it up because of poorly defined restrictions... you may wanna git gud, son.

But I was never one for listening, so I guess this is what you'll get.

Hello. This is my new game -- anyone can play it. It follows the same rules as the previous two ones (lack of red vs blue and such); but you'll easily see that much for yourself, since the rules are explained in the doc. (Apologies for making it .docx, but .doc file was like 7MBs, and I didn't want to force people to download anything larger than, like, 3 - since it's a really short game.)

Have fun, hopefully!

You never would've been able to explain the letter, though. Never without making a stretch or two using the narration, which could arguably done with any gameboard, if you push it far enough.

Of course the false alibi was part of the theory, so with that as the base then it explains the letter too. Like I would fall for your witch's truth of actually stopping time etc.

Hello all,

As promised, I bring a murderous little gameboard for your study and pleasure, which I will begin typing up immediately. I hope it meets your expectations! Warning: this sucker's a long one (I'm going for the full 13 deaths).


-This may look like the Rokkenjima you know, but it isn't. Be aware that some things may have changed.
-I'm not going to use honorifics. Sorry, I'm just bad with them.
-I will have MYSTERY or FANTASY at the top of every section.
-MYSTERY sections will be 100% fact. Anything said, done, or shown actually happened. Anything not said, done, or shown is up to interpretation.
-FANTASY sections may or may not be 100% fact, but could be. However, I will have leave to lie or alter absolutely anything I wish to. Skip them if you want, but they may have hints and clues in them.
-This may take me a while to fully type out. It will be done when the post includes THE END. Until then, feel free to interject with lighthearted commentary, but please, no blue theories until the gameboard is complete.

Have fun!

(Going more OOC for this post. Blame my phone for the Natsumi. I meant to put Natsuhi. Will be edited when I'm home.)

As for Krauss' body, it's hard to say exactly which blow killed him without Nanjo, but he had seven large stab-like wounds in his back, made by something shaped somewhat like an ice pick. He then bled extensively. Judging by the blood, it's likely that the body was moved towards the door. As mentioned, the vest he wore had been torn, as if the pocketwatch that was attached to it was viciously yanked at some point.

If there is anything further you wish to know about Krauss' body, ask. Their examinations were amateur, but fairly thorough if they thought to check.

((Alright, it's not letting me edit that one. However, just to be absolutely clear,
That was supposed to say Natsuhi. Natsuhi was not the culprit nor an accomplice to that murder.))

Alright then. First off those reds.

Nanjo was fine with the culprit being in the room with him. They probably had planned to talk.

Hideyoshi took it from her.

Someone else was there too then or Natsuhi left the room at some point. Sleepwalking maybe.

The body was cut up and then put into the pipes.

Whether those are right or wrong, moving on to the the culprit. The whydunit is not necessary so lets systematically eliminate the whodunit.

Gohda, Kumasawa, Nanjo, Genji, Kanon, Shannon, Rosa, Maria, George, Eva, and Krauss all clearly died. We then void Kinzo naturally. This leaves Battler, Kyrie, Rudolf, Natsuhi, Jessica, and Hideyoshi.

Battler went straight to the guesthouse and didn't leave someone else's sight until a murder was found, so he is crossed off. Kyrie also took shelter with him and was part of the alibi for Nanjo's closed room, since she was there while it was locked and didn't leave she is crossed off too.

Gaap laughed maniacally as the blue truth sped towards her, up until the moment the tip touched her forehead. In a bright flash, the illusion of Gaap shattered, and Jessica Ushiromiya sat in the chair, gazing out at the audience with dead eyes.

A slight grin played on the edge of her lips. "It was fun, actually. Do you want to know how I did it?" Without waiting for a response, she began.

"I started planning this a little over two years ago, but most of my true preparations didn't begin until about six months prior, when I got that old pervert, Doctor Nanjo, to agree to burn down the storage shed while I was away on a school holiday so that I would have a solid alibi. He'd been lusting after me for a while, so I told him that if he helped me have "a little rebellion against my overbearing parents" he might get a chance to play. I'd already spent the prior month sneaking out all the various equipment I'd need with no one the wiser, and with the shed burned no one would think to look for it all."

"Next, the day before the conference. I told Kumasawa I'd bought some small ice cream treats for the other cousins, and I'd want her help in surprising them with them. I knew she could sneak Gohda's key, so it was easy to arrange a plan to get her into the fridge. She was the first to die, of course. I'd run off by then, saying I'd forgotten to pack my things, when in reality I went to the kitchen and waited for her to excuse herself, complaining of an aching back. We entered the fridge, I snapped her neck, stuffed her in the meat freezer, sliced her open like one of her beloved mackerel, and placed the dessert back on top so no one would think anything of it. Then I left, locked up, and left the key on the counter before heading over to the guesthouse."

"I'd told Nanjo that tonight would

The wind screams as it sends shards of ice pelting into a defenseless face. It mutes a voice.

“… Where is ___?”

A thick crunch each time a new each leg enters the snow. They slowly delve deeper into the thicket. Branches start to hit their face, clearly they are not thinking about something so trivial.

“This ___ the ____...”

They race around, barely able to open their eyes let alone see anything but white. Stumbling, for hands provide little support.

____ must be _____ somewhere…”

They grab for something, a stick in the tree line, a branch, anything. Just to provide support a minute longer.

"Kintaro eh... sounds familiar," he says while digging through his backpack. "Ichiro Fukushima is mine."

He then promptly pulls out a knife and plunges it into the carcass. The sound of tearing flesh unpleasantly crawls up your spine into your ear. He notices your reaction and speaks up, "I don't like an audience. Get going now."

You leave the large man to his work and get back on the main path.

After a while you finally make it back to that part of the village and to the Yamada household. You head around back and find the pile of wood. You also find Jiro working on something under the little overhang. He doesn't notice you as of yet.

This probably belongs here since its a game. Anyways, I'm proud to announce the open beta for Umineko Online, an online multiplayer game where we play mysteries, roleplay, and do a variety of fun things. We hope you will join us as this has been a passion project of mine for quite a while now. We have several mysteries written for new players. Hope to see all of you soon.
