Greetings Anon.

I hereby challenge you to a different kind of game of sorts. You have 1 goal in this game, and that is the save a certain selected target.
If that target dies by any means then the game ends with your loss.

You can do that 2 ways. By protecting them and keeping them alive until the end of day two. Or by capturing the 3 pieces I have given murderous intentions.

You can stop the selected 3 two ways. By either preventing them from being able to kill, or by calling them out on a crime they committed while using a theory that can't be denied.

One thing however you are forbidden to do, is kill someone.

You also have 3 help tokens. A help token can be used for 2 things. Using 1 you can be given a red of your choice, as long as it isn't 'is X one of the three culprits?' or 'is Y the target?'

Or it can be used to allow to call out for help. Your helper can then take over another piece temporarily and learn some bits of knowledge that they know, and then your helper can control them for a small amount of time. (What they do is up to that person.)

How will you play? Will you try to protect the target? Will you try to prevent the culprits from killing? Will you try to bring them to justice?

I look forward to seeing how you play. Do you accept my challenge?

I am not sure, but just trying to protect the target seems a bit difficult. Knowing from the start than there are at least three pieces who can be killers make hard to trust most of them.
Anyways, I do accept.

“Welcome Anon.”

The witch welcomed her opponent who had just appeared in the seat in front of her. In between them was a small wooden table, and placed on the table was a chessboard.

The black side had all the pieces on the board, but the white side only had the king, queen, 1 knight, 1 bishop, and 1 rook. It appeared as if the game had been going for sometime, but the game actually had yet to start.

“Now you might think of me as MARIA. I can understand why you would. We look exactly alike.”

The witch did look like Maria in her witch outfit. The only difference was that the color of her clothes was different. This girl's outfit was white, and the ribbon coming down was pitch black. In her hands she held the same staff MARIA held, only this one was black.

“I am Maria, and I'm not. MARIA is the Witch of Origin, the light side of Maria's heart. I am Mira, the dark side of Maria's heart. I am the Witch of Destruction. But enough talk, let's begin the game.”

“Oh good you're waking up. I was starting to get worried.”

You hear a voice as you open your eyes. The room slowly starts to focus around you. You're in what appears to be a small bedroom. It barely has enough space for the bed and end table that is already in the room.

You glance over at the person who spoke to you. It appears to be a teenage girl, she has blonde hair, and what appears to be tomboy like clothes.

“When I saw you collapse like that, I got worried. I had Genji and Gohda carry you here. You probably don't even know who I am.” The girl let out an embarrassed laugh, it seems she forgot to mention this fact. “I'm Jessica Ushiromiya.” She frowned and paused. “You don't need to call me Jessica-sama though. Well.. unless my mother or father are around, then you should show respect, otherwise you'll get in trouble.”

You don't remember who you are. You're memory is all hazy, but from what Jessica said you've gathered that you are a servant at this place.

Jessica stops and thinks about it. "Well, I wasn't exactly close enough to see exactly what happened." She pauses before starting again. "Well, what I mean is. I was just passing by the rose garden when I looked over and saw you collapse. I'm not really sure what you were doing in the rose garden though, because I thought I heard that the new servant was assigned to be in the main house."

She looks down with a troubled expression. "I'm sorry I can't really answer that question. You should probably ask Genji, or Mom that, they would probably know."

She looks back up and smiles. "Do you have any other questions?"
>> No. 1992 edit

"No problem. Oh I just remembered you dropped this when you collapsed I think."

Jessica reaches into her pocket and pulls out a key, which she hands to you.

"That's one of the master key all the servants have one."

With a small bow, anon take the key and put it in his pocket.
"Thank you again. It's a bit shameful to be a problem from the very first day.
Well, if you excuse me I think I need to report with Natsuhi-sama."

"It's no problem, if you don't feel 100%, don't feel you have to push yourself."

Jessica's expressions darkens.

"Mom, if probably in her room on the second floor. She pretty much always spends her time there now."

She tries to shake it off and smile again. "Well I get back to the other cousins, they are probably wondering what happened to me."

"Wait a second, There's something wrong?

You ... might not trust me yet since I'm new, but I'm sure I just did see a concerned face.
Please allow me to repay you for this and listen to you. Maybe talking about it will help to stress you out."
>> No. 1997 edit
File 131232052159.png - (126.23KB , 370x462 , jes_nayamua1.png )
Jessica lets out a sigh.

"Well, I guess you should probably know. I don't know if they told you this when you were brought here, but you probably won't be here long."

Jessica looks down sadly a worried expression is on her face.

"Last year at the conference Eva Oba-san found out that apparently Grandfather was dead. She was furious over the cover-up and blew it all out. Ruining all the deals my father was making. And that was just the start, the people father borrowed money from have begun to start demanding we pay up. It turns out any day now they will come and take the mansion and kick us out. This might be the last conference."

"A huge financial problem? I did hear something before hand but I didn't know it was this terrible. I'm quite sorry I shouldn't have asked"
Feeling this is the right moment to leave Jessica return with her cousins, anon decide to leave the room and go to Natsuhi's room.

While heading to Natsuhi's room you get lost, and have to ask another servant for help. After getting directions you manage to find Natsuhi's room.

While standing in front of the door you can hear the sound of someone crying on the inside.

You hear the sound of crying stop, and a few seconds later the door opens.

Her eyes are bright red and puffy, it appears she has been crying for a while now.

Natsuhi tried to regain a solid composure, but not even a second later it vanishes. She pauses before speaking in a barely audible tone.

"Oh, it is you."

Her tone resembles someone who is talking to their executioner when they show up to bring you to the platform.

While you leave the rose garden Shannon tries to strike up a conversation.

"Were you not told everything?"

Shannon stops walking and pauses. "The person who we are meeting at the dock is the person who might take the mansion, they might even kick the family out today." Shannon's tone holds heavy sadness.

"I hope everyone will be ok."

"Well, I'm afraid I don't know about your accident. Before you were told by Madame to meet the guest, we were cleaning, and before that just resting in the servants room."

Shannon pauses and looks down at the ground while walking. "As to why you were brought here. It is because the last servant was injured greatly just yesterday and we needed a quick replacement."

Shannon looks back up and smiles with a slight smile.

"Do you have any other questions."

You probably don't know this. But this island has another master, Beatrice-sama. She is the witch who rules over the island at night.

If you respect Beatrice-sama then she won't harm you. But if you disrespect her, Beatrice-sama will take vengeance on you.

You and Shannon both arrive at the dock. There you see a woman standing with one small bag on the dock next to her.

"There you are. I have been waiting for quite some time."

"We're sorry, we had some problems." Shannon apologized quickly bowing politely.

Somehow the woman's slight smile seemed fake as she smiled at both of you. "Well shall we head to the main house now."

"Uu-! Maria and Beatrice's rose! Uu-!"

"Maria... we should go."

The other little girl with red hair seemed to sense something strange about this woman and wanted to leave.

"If you don't mind, I'll take the children back to the guesthouse." Shannon proposed with a bright smile that seemed completely out of place.

You get lost four times before leaving the main house. And once you find your way outside you get lost in the courtyard. Finally you see Genji and others it seems they gave up waiting for you, and had Genji tell everyone in the guest house before trying to find you.

It is completely silent inside the parlor. It seems everyone or almost everyone on the island is currently in the parlor.

Krauss, Natsuhi, Eva, Hideyoshi, Rudolf, Kyrie, Rosa, Jessica, Battler, Maria, Ange, Genji, Gohda, Shannon, Kumasawa, and this guest.

Aside from you there are 16 other people in this room.

"Greetings Ushiromiya Family and servants of the fore mentioned family. I am Ikuko Hachijou. And I have come to take this island and mansion. You already know that you put this mansion up as collateral, and I've come to take it. Unless you can pay me the requested amount right now."

Krauss stutters "We-We-we- can't pay you right now."

"Well that it appears this mansion is mine. Don't worry though I won't throw you out in this storm. You'll just have to leave as soon as it is over. You might want to pack all your things you want to take during this storm. I won't let you set foot on this island after it is over. And all of you servants are now relieved of duty."

Tons of gasps lit up the room and then silence.

Anyways this woman has some guts to make enemy of a whole family by herself"
anon use this chance to walk to near to the guest and whisper to her.

Time stops and the world turns gray.


The witch frowns slightly. Before laughing.

"Such a question has little value. Simple answer is when Krauss's credit went under after Kinzo's death was found out, they figured it wouldn't that they couldn't wait any longer. Krauss just keeps failing over and over again. They don't have enough faith in him not make this move. Maybe they need money too, so they want the mansion."


The world fills with color once again.

"WHAT THE HELL!" Battler explodes. He seems to have been the first person to come out of stupor. "That is stupid! Who the hell do you think you are! You can't just throw a family out of their house! I'm packing after I just finished unpacking!"

The woman smirks at him. "Would you rather be thrown out right now. The small boat I used to get here should be able to fit a few people. Or would you rather swim~"

"Yes. That is right it probably could. But the epitaph is so complicated I doubt anyone could solve."

It seems things are getting heated now that everyone has recovered.

"What do you mean by that!" Battler shouted.

"Please give us a little more time." Krauss said while closed eyes.

Eva began to laugh. "It is what you deserve Nii-san for covering up Father's death. I don't feel any sympathy for you. And while I'm upset at losing Father's island, I don't really feel much attachment to this family anymore. I only came here to visit the place one more time."

"Eva... I think that is enough." Hideyoshi whispered.

"This island..." Rosa seemed conflicted about something.

Natsuhi seemed on the verge of tears. Jessica held a blank expression. Gohda seemed shocked by this and was sputtering.

"It seems this is the end of our service." Kumasawa whispered to Genji.

"It appears so."

"Well it appears it was a good idea to come this year." Rudolf said with a sour tone.

Kyrie stayed silent with her eyes closed she seemed to be thinking hard about something.

"You have no more time." The woman said ignoring Battler's statement.

"Why you!" Battler shouted at her taking a step towards her.

"Battler stop." Shannon cried out lunging at Battler holding him back.

Battler seemed to cool off instantly and his fierce expression faded and was replaced by a sad one.

"Battler it will be ok." Shannon whispered softly allowing only the few people nearby to hear.

Battler and Shannon left the room. You notice right as they walk out of the door they entwined their hands.

Losing his only ally so far, anon wonders what is he doing in this place. However this is not reason to feel down, how about trying to get some information about this place?
Kusamawa and Genji seem like the best choice.

"Excuse me Kumasawa-san, my name is anon. I'm the new servant than got lost trying to find a huge building in this small island.
I was wondering, Shannon just told me about a certain epitaph that exists in this mansion, Do you know anything about it?"

"Ohoho~ Beatrice-sama's epitaph. It hangs below the portrait of Beatrice in the main hall. It tells how to find Beatrice's gold supposedly."

Kumasawa chuckles slightly. "Would you like a map, so you don't get lost anymore?"

"A map would be quite useful ... I have just a few hours in this island and I'm already getting lost. By the way, I'm a quite interested in the epitaph, if the legend is true is possible than the hidden gold of Kinzo is somewhere in this island. Wouldn't be good to find it?
Kumasawa-san please be honest with me, Have you ever tried solving it? Is it hard?"

Everyone gathered in the dinning room. Krauss sat at the end of the table with Ikuko on other end. Natsuhi and Rudolf sat next to him with Rosa and Kyrie coming next. Then came Eva and Hideyoshi, then Battler and Jessica, and lastly Maria and Ange.

There wasn't much conversation, it seemed everyone was still lost in their thoughts regarding what happened. The only sounds in the room was the shuffling of feet from the servants and the soft swinging of the chandelier. One by one Gohda brought out each course one after the other.

Finally it was time for desert and Maria and Ange were making a lot of noise.

“It is mackerel pie.” Kumasawa joked to the cousins. Ange and Maria made disgusted faces while the other two cousins laughed.

Rosa was about to tell Kumasawa to stop that, but when she realized this would probably be the last time she heard those jokes she stopped. Everyone started to eat the slice of pie placed in front of them.

Then suddenly.

There was a strange noise. It was almost like a sizzling, and then suddenly sparks and loud explosions erupted, and then a horrific scream.

“Ange!” Jessica cried out as she quickly jumped over. Everyone got up and rushed over to Ange.

Ange was badly injured, it looked extremely serious. “This looks bad.” Jessica said.

“Uu-! Is Ange going to be alright?” Maria asked her mother. Rosa didn't answer.

“You should probably take her to the hospital.” Ikuko suggested. “You can even use my boat.”

“Thank you.” Kyrie said grabbed and carrying Ange. “I'll head over with Ange and get her to a doctor, I'll let everyone know whats happening.” And with those words Kyrie rushed out of the room with Ange.

Now with the boat gone, Rokkenjima has become a closed space, no one can enter or leave it.

“What's this?”

Hideyoshi noticed someone placed on the table. It was an envelope. He opened it and took out the letter inside. Inside written in red ink was the following message.

You shall pay for your crime. I won't forgive you.

Gohda began stuttering like crazy trying to form some kind of words. "I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I I didn't do anything I swear!"

Almost everyone glared at the letter as if they wanted it to disappear.

Ikuko let out a chuckle. "It appears this family has quite a lot of dark secrets. And someone wants vengeance on someone in this room."

“Is this someone's idea of a joke!” Battler yelled as he snatched the letter from Hideyoshi. “What do they think they are playing at! “

Eva frowned. “What a nasty joke.”

Natsushi and Rosa seemed almost frozen, it seemed the contents of the letter sent them into shock.

“Ohohoho~ It seems someone in this room has a grudge.”

“Kumasawa-san, I don't think you should quite be so cheerful about this.” Gohda stuttered.

Jessica grabbed the letter from Battler. “It doesn't matter who cares about this. It is just a stupid prank.” Jessica ripped out the letter to try and prove her point for everyone to forget about it.

“Yes that is it, it must just be a prank.” Krauss said trying to convince himself of that fact.

Rosa recovered from her shock. “Yes it is just a prank. Nothing more.”

“Are you sure about that?” Ikuko spoke in a mysterious tone. “If it is a prank that means someone in this room did it doesn't it? Someone who plays a prank normally stays within range so they can watch the reactions of their victims. So that would mean that someone in this room would have had to set this up if it was a prank.”

The room went silent at that statement. What this woman was saying made perfect sense to them. But then who set it up? And how did they do it for that matter.

Lunch ended on that note and the servants started cleaning up. While you helped out in the kitchen you noticed Shannon wasn't around. It took a while to clean all the dishes a lot longer than expected.

"I don't know just something from the Kinzo's study. I asked Genji get some from the third floor and this was what he brought me." Ikuko's speech is slurred. It appears she is drunk.

"I don't think that was a prank. Ange-chan was probably set up to be attacked, to show that it wasn't just a prank."

Rosa pauses again.

She seems to be thinking about something.

"Well... Let's see. It was a while maybe 19 years ago?"

Rosa pauses to think about it.

"Yes I think that is about right."

Rosa shakes her head and lets out a dry laugh before going on.

"Well I guess it doesn't matter all that much. Mother had gotten a hold of my report card somehow. I don't really know how she got it. I hid it so well..."

Rosa shakes her head again.

"Well, that part doesn't really matter does it. She found out about my bad grades and I got harshly scolded. At that moment I felt like no one loved me at all. I felt completely alone, I just wanted to vanish. So I ran into the forest."

"I had heard of the legend of the golden witch. And at that moment I wanted to meet her, so I guess it was like a miracle. I found a mansion in the middle of the forest. It had a large fence on all sides, but I found a space I could crawl through. The garden on the other side was amazing looking. I thought that this was the witch's garden for sure. She had invited me to meet her. And that was where I met her."

"She looked like the witch from the portrait, but she didn't act anything like I expected her to act like. She seemed like a child. She seemed to know nothing of the outside world. She had been told that wolves lived just on the other side of the fence and that she must never leave do to that."

"I don't know what was going through my head at the time. But I convinced her to go with me. I think I felt she was like me, a lost soul who didn't feel they had a place. So I wanted to set her free, if I did so, I would also have a purpose and a place."

Tears are falling from Rosa's face now.

"But on the way back, I convinced her to scale the cliff side. But.. she knew nothing of how to walk like that, and in that dress... She was just like a little puppy following me without understanding. I shouldn't have taken on that path. Because of me..."

Rosa is now weeping and it seems her words are becoming intangible, how ever suddenly all the woods start coming in clearly again, the GM must have made it so you can hear clearly.

"She slipped and fall. Down I watched her fall. She fell and fell. And then crash. She hit the water. The water started to turn red."

"I waited but she never surfaced. I knew the water was pretty shallow there, so I realized she had probably been killed by the impact."

"I rushed home as fast as I could and tried to forget the whole incident."

Rosa wipes her tears.

"Well let's see if was about 10 years ago now. Maybe a little longer.

It just a random meeting. The kind from fairy tales. We were in the library at the college. I was buying lots of books, so many I couldn't see where I was going. And I bumped into him. And he was kind enough to help me pick up all my books. It wasn't really a good first meeting now that I think of it. I was entranced at first sight. I was in love, well maybe not. I'm not really sure if it was love anymore. I don't know what it was."

Rosa has a bitter smile at the memory.

"We didn't see each other for a while after that. And then again in the library we ran into each other. We each reached for the same book at the same time. I remember my cheeks flushed at the slight touch. He muttered how it was ok for me to check out the book and walked away. At first I thought it was because he was embarrassed and was shy, but now.. I don't know what to think. No, I shouldn't lie... he was just playing me. He was just a player and he played me."

Rosa seems to be getting slightly upset.

"The next time we meet he asked me out. I agreed and we had a really great time. The next date however ended funny... we moved far to fast. But it makes sense, that was all he wanted from me, well it wasn't all he wanted. But now that he had me, in mind and body it was easy to get the other thing he wanted. My money. It was a joint loan, I cosigned my life over to him, he even talk about getting married. He said he loved me. He said I was the only girl he cared about. But it was all a lie."

"A few months later I found out about Maria. I told him about it, and he seemed excited as well. He said he would be a good father and husband, and he was sorry that we went that far that night. Everything seemed like a dream. Like I was in a fairytale and I had just met my prince and gotten my happy ending. However it was just the start of my real nightmare."

"It was a shock. A shock that awoke me from my dream. The next day I went to the graduation ceremony, and there was my picture posted all over the campus. Pictures of us together, in bed. 'Rosa Ushiromiya: slut.' was written all over the campus. I couldn't believe it. My nightmare had come true. He was just a player. He ran over to me after the ceremony and said he was sorry about all this, and it wasn't his fault or something, said it was his friends and he had nothing to do with it. But he was just a horrid liar. He was a player like his friends and he just used me, to get money and free sex."

Rosa is crying again.

"My emotions were in a flare. I couldn't control anything. Please don't think ill of me. I didn't mean to do it really."

Rosa is crying and pleading at you.

"I called him out saying I wanted to talk to him. He showed up and started apologizing saying it was his friends and he had nothing to do with it. It was the same old story. But I hadn't called him out there to forgive him. Instead I took out the knife from the purse I brought and killed him. I stabbed him over and over again. All the while he kept saying, 'I'm so sorry Rosa.' I still remember those words they haunt me constantly. He kept whispering those words until he died, he didn't even fight back.

It is a small room that has a open doorway that leads into the lounge.

Jessica and Maria are lying in the center of the room. Neither of them are moving. Maria has a large red splotch on her chest.

"Hello Anon." Shannon greets you. Battler is sitting on the couch next to her.

Battler lets out a frustrated cry. "It's useless I can't figure it out."

"So you give up?" Shannon asks.

Battler nods his head.

Jessica and Maria begin laughing. "I knew he wouldn't get it."

"So what was the answer? Who killed Maria and Jessica and how did they lock the room?" Battler asked Shannon.

"Even if I didn't start the problem I should try to fix it right?
I wonder if the method I tried to fix the problem was the right way.
Maybe I should have tried something else. Maybe I could have fixed everything."

"I tell you something Anon that I haven't told anyone else. When George
was around the last confrence I hated him. Well maybe that isn't right.
I hated how he was acting. It was like he changed from 1 year to the next."

Jessica seems to mull over things a little.

"You're right. I can't change the past. And I also can't fix everything.
I can try all I want, but the fact is I might not have been able to change

"Maria love Mama. Uu~! Maria will stay by Mama's side, never let Mama out of sight kihihihihi~"

"Well it isn't like we really have a choice. We are almost completely broke. Mom might have to get a job even."

After you finish talking, you head back to the main house with everyone. Quickly you get separated from the cousins as it is time for them to get ready to eat, and time for you to help out.

You are very busy helping Gohda and Kumasawa in both the kitchen and helping Shannon get rooms ready for everyone.

Shannon suggests to you that it would be faster if each of you did the rooms by yourselves, instead of together.

Realizing the amount of rooms you need to get ready, you agree to this, and you don't see Shannon again.

After finally finishing the last room you get hear the telephone ring in the room you're in. It is Genji telling you it is time for everyone to eat.

You enter the nearest bathroom to wash your hands, closing the door behind you. Right as you close the door something slips by the cracks, however it goes unnoticed by you.


Anon closed the door to the bathroom as he did that. A small golden butterfly and a strange white creature passed just trough the cracks heading out of the room and into the hallway.

"It is your move now. Well almost~"

A strange sound echoed through the room. A cold wind blows through the room.

"Well what do we have here?" A new voice spoke.

You turn around and see someone standing behind you. It is Bernkastel: the Witch of Miracles.

"A game, one that I didn't know about. Hmmm." Bernkastel stops and looks at the board. "I see." She turns and looks are you a sly smile appears on her face. "I'll assist you in this game."

She snaps her finger and inside her hand appears three coins. She hands the coins over to you.

"These coins might allow a miracle to happen." Bernkastel giggles. "Though I'll assist you in other ways as well."

"So Miracle vs Certainty." It was the voice of another new person.

In a flash another person appeared in the room this time it was Lambdadelta: The Witch of Certainty, and she appeared behind Mira.

I see.
You enter the dining room. You notice almost everyone is present in the dining room. It seems however 5 people are missing. Natsuhi, Jessica, Battler, Rosa, Kumasawa, you don't see them in the room.

It seems that while the food is placed in front of everyone, no one is allowed to eat until everyone else shows up.

Minutes pass by. After 40 minutes everyone starts to get a little restless. Gohda starts complaining about how the food is cold now.

The ticking of the clock on the wall was beginning to unnerve everyone. What had happened to the five currently missing people.

The room began to fill with whispers of everyone questioning each other on what happened to the 5 people.

The clock instantly killed all conversation as it chimed. A little girl being chased by a wolf ran out of the first door on the clock. She ran around the track in a circle before entering the second door. The wolf however stopped at the center of the circle. And howled once for each hour.

1st Howl. 2nd Howl. 3rd Howl. 4th Howl. 5th Howl. 6th Howl. 7th Howl. It was now 7PM.

Eva frowned. "That is one thing I'm not sorry to see go. That clock. I'll be glad when I get to forget about it. And that story about the wolves and then the witch. It just brings up bad memories."

Rudolf also frowned. "That clock is just full of bad memories. Why is it even still up?"

Krauss let out a sigh. "You know how much father liked that clock. So Natsuhi and I decided we wouldn't take it down."

The dining room went silent it seems everyone was deep in thought, and then.


The clock was starting up again.

"What is going on?!" Eva shouted it has only been 30 minutes."

"It must be broken." Rudolf chuckled.

The girl and the wolf came out again. But when the wolf stopped everyone's eyes widened. Around the wolf's neck was a master key.

"What the hell!" Eva screamed.

"What-what-what is going on." Shannon cried out.

"How did? How did something like that happen?" Rudolf said confused. "How did the wolf reappear with the key?"

Genji went over and stopped the clock. He reset the time to 7PM forcing the wolf to come out again, sure enough it still had the key around it's neck. Genji took the key off its neck and then set the clock to the proper time.

"It appears to be Kumasawa's master key." Genji told everyone.

"Kihihihihi~" Maria laughed. "You are all wondering, how that was possible. But what you just witness was magic. Maria can tell that wolf in that clock was cursed with a magic spell. It happened a long time ago. Kihihihi~"

"How do you know about that?!" Eva screamed losing her composure. She quickly realized her outburst and calmed down and apologized.

It seems this clock has a story behind it. It might be valuable to learn. Or we can try and find the 5 victims. Or something completely different. Your choice.

Shannon fidgets nervously. "Yes I'm very worried. I hope. I hope. I hope."

Tears started to form in Shannon's eyes. "I hope nothing happened to him. I'm afraid I don't know where he went. The last time I saw him was when we split up with the cousins upon entering the main house."

Krauss looks down at the floor. "I'm afraid I don't. Natsuhi said she wanted to be alone in her room shortly after lunch."
