This is a small, simple mystery I'm opening to everyone, just to provide a little entertainment for /gameboard/. It's a classic game taking place on Rokkenjima.

Players are allowed unlimited blue theories and may ask for additional details or clarifications in green, but each Player may only ask one question or propose one theory at a time until I have replied. I will address as many replies as I can when I comment.

I'm unsure how long this mystery will last in the hungry hands of the fans, but it'll help me grow accustomed to creating mysteries.

Players must solve the following:
-How the closed room came about

Take your time, sit down and enjoy.

Rosa stared at her plate emptily. Rudolf chuckled.

"Honestly, Rosa. How old are you? You still can't eat something if it has tomatoes in it?" Rosa avoided her brother's smirk. His teasing really reminded her of when they all lived together in father's house.

There was a clinking of cutlery and another voice. "I'll swap with you." Rosa looked up in surprise, her eyes meeting Kyrie's, who was now offering her plate with a cool smile.

"Don't worry," Kyrie added. "Our dishes are almost the same. Gohda will be just as happy to know we enjoyed our meals."

The other family members began chatting among themselves. Soon, lunch was over. Everyone but Rudolf, Kyrie and Hideyoshi left the room in order to take a break.

The clock struck 1pm. It was time for the dining hall meeting to recommence. Rosa, Rudolf, Kyrie, Natsuhi and Hideyoshi were all in attendance - but there was no sign of either Eva or Krauss. Everyone waited. As her nerves became all the more intense, Natsuhi apologised to everyone on behalf of her husband's tardiness.

Everything was silent save for the sound of the rain outside. Suddenly, the sound of running echoed throughout the halls.

"Gohda!! Where are the chain cutters?" Eva barked as she burst into the kitchen. The chef looked terrified.

"Ma'am, they're in the storehouse," he gulped. Without waiting for another word, the woman ran back into the hallway and called for Genji. Although he couldn't shake his nervousness, Gohda slumped in his seat. Since he'd already cooked a unique meal for every member of the family, he was far too exhausted to follow one of Eva's whims. This time, he was able to let someone else handle it for him.

He didn't notice several droplets of water on the floor where Eva stood.

Kanon, Shannon, Genji and Eva arrived at Eva's bedroom. The door was already unlocked, as Eva explained, since she had used her key to open it. Genji broke the chain lock with his cutting instrument and opened the door fully. Eva froze as she saw Krauss sprawled out across the floor in an unnatural, uncomfortable position. She immediately dashed over to him and began shaking him, demanding that he wake up.

Alas, there was no response.

Congratulations on making your first gameboard!

Without further ado, I'll start working on part number 3. The murderer escaped through a window in Eva's room, which was shut behind them, but left unlocked, merely creating the appearance of a closed room.

I can do the simple start thing. Should be a fair question.

Any wounds or other giveaway signs of the cause of death on the body?

Of course, it's important we clear up some information at the beginning, no?

The window to Eva's room was locked and can only be locked from the inside. I'm surprised I didn't put that one in the story.

And secondly, in response to Rune:

A detailed investigation was not yet performed at the time of the game's conclusion, but no wounds were discovered by anyone present.

Both the door lock and chain were in place until Eva unlocked the door with her key.

Gohda made unique meals for each family member, but Rosa's contained tomatos, which she dislikes. The meal Rosa was eating was originally intended for Krauss, but they were swapped. This swapped meal contained poison or some other afflictive agent X which caused Krauss to later die.

Either Rosa or Kyrie, depending on the interpretation of >>20076 . One of the meals that they ate between them was Krauss's original meal, and one of the meals originally intended for them was poisoned and given to Krauss. That's just the most likely culprit, of course, since anyone could have poisoned or switched the meals at any time.

Someone was intending to kill Rosa or Kyrie via poisoned meal, but without knowing about the poison she switched meals with Krauss, who then died after eating it. Thus the person who directly caused Krauss's death is innocent.

Close, but not quite. I blame myself for misleading you, but Rosa and Kyrie swapping their meals has nothing to do with the actual murder - that part exists only to consider the possibility that meals can be swapped. Knox's 8th in action, if you will.

Rather than poison, Gohda put a medication in someone's meal, and that person unknowingly swapped it with Krauss, who died due to incompatibility with the drugs. Gohda is thus the innocent culprit.

You... got the culprit but changed the howdunnit which was already right??? I am confused????

In all seriousness though, well done!

Gohda was planning to murder Eva. In order to do so, he poisoned her meal. Eva and Krauss swapped meals at the dinner table. After lunch, Eva took Krauss aside and agreed to have a chat about the inheritance in private, which is why Eva left Hideyoshi behind after lunch concluded.

During break, Eva took Krauss to her room and held a discussion with him. However, she needed the bathroom and left the room, locking it behind her. Krauss added the chain for extra security, in order to satisfy Eva's fear that she'd be seen speaking on good terms with Krauss.

Whenever Eva returned from the bathroom however, there was no response from the door. Krauss had died from poisoning inside the room. This is when she went to find Genji.

Well played, everyone.
