"Welcome to Rokkenjima"

Said calmly Kanon to the ones that came out of the boat. He, along with his 'sister' Shannon, had been waiting for the boat to arrive with the members of the Ushiromiya family. Today was October 4th, the day of the annual conference of the Ushiromiya family, the day when all the relatives meet again to talk about how were they doing with their respective business and a chance for the young cousins to be together and talk about their daily issues. All those family members were now here talking to each other after leaving the boat just like the beginning of the previous conference, however something was different from that conference: Rudolf's son, Battler, was also standing there for the first time since six years ago. Battler was happily chatting with his cousins George and Jessica while the little Maria was still making fun of him for how he reacted to the speed of the boat that they used to go from Nijima to Rokkenjima. Although he was clearly embarrassed, it could be noted that he was really very happy to see them all again. On the other side, Kinzo's sons were speaking about the usual stuff, about their childhood memories, their future plans, the new trends, types of tea and their preparations... Sometimes Kyrie and Hideyoshi, Rudolf's current wife and Eva's husband respectively would add some new information for themselves and sometimes start a new topic of discussion.

When the groups reached the point where Kanon and Shannon were they greeted them.

-You should be the young master Battler. -said Kannon respectfully while bowing- It's a pleasure to meet you.

-Oh, and you are... -asked Battler.

-Yes it's right, you probably don't know him -answered his Kyrie, his stepmother- he is an employee that had started working here since three years ago, his name is Kanon and he is the one that assumes the role of the mansion's gardener.

-I see, -said Battler- nice to meet you too.

-The pleasure is mine. -answered Kanon slightly bowing.

After a short pause, Rudolf asked:

-Now that I think of it, why are you here? Usually the ones that come to greet us here is either Genji, Kumasawa or that new cook that our brother stole from some luxury hotel, Gohda, I think.

-They are all finishing all the preparations -answered Shannon, the young shy maid that was almost like a part of the family because her long service to the family despite her age.

-Ooh, so our older brother still hasn't done everything already? -said Eva with a mocking tone.

-Well that's because of some unexpected guests who will come soon, according to the weather report they will be here before the typhoon arrives -declared Kanon, as if to cover the Shannon's slip of the tongue.

-Unexpected guests? -inquired Rosa, the air surrounding the siblings started to feel tense because of that unexpected revelation.

-Well, that surprised us as well -explained Jessica- but it seems that they were invited by someone in the family, at the beginning we tried to tell them that they could come some other day, but apparently they had an invitation telling them to come to this conference which was within one of the envelopes that grandfather uses. After checking the invitation we realized that someone within the family should have invited them.

-Maybe we can dig in more into it after we arrive at the mansion. -proposed Hideyoshi

After everyone's approval the group started to move forward towards the mansion while Kanon and Shannon lead them. They went all the way up the stairs. At the top of them they saw Ushiromiya's personal garden, a beautiful rose garden that was a delight for everyone's eyes. All the outside family members were really delighted with the sight, some congratulated Kanon for his work ah he answered with humble answers. Some time later when the group had enough of the site, they headed towards the mansion.

When they entered the mansion they were greeted by Krauss and Natsuhi, along with grandfather's personal medic Dr.Nanjo and the rest of the servants: Genji, Kumasawa and Gohda.

-Oh my. -said Natsuhi- is this Battler? You have grown a lot. It feels like it was yesterday when you were only a child and look at you, you are now almost an adult. Time sure goes fast...

-Why don't we all go to the parlor so we can all talk there in a more comfortable way? -suggested Krauss.

All the family started heading towards the parlor, when they entered, Gohda announced.

-If you excuse us, Kumasawa and I are going to head towards the harbor to greet the new guests.

-Hmpf, fine -answered Krauss with an uncomfortable expression, it seemed that he liked that new guests as much as the rest of the family- Go greet them.

Then Gohda and Kumasawa started to head towards the harbor. Once they got there they saw a boat approaching, when the boat reached its destination, four people disembarked. After they landed the boat hurried to get out of there before the typhoon could affect its navigation.

-Welcome to Rokkenjima -Gohda greeted them, while giving a look at the mysterious guests, suddenly one of them made a step forward.

-Nice to meet you. -said the man- My name is Referee. Please could you tell me where is the family? I want to meet with them.

-Right now they are in the parlor -answered Gohda- I could guide you to them while Kumasawa stays here checking the harbor for the incoming typhoon.

The Referee then turned and asked to the other three guests:

-Do you want to join me and go to the parlor?

-------

Here begins the game, this round will work as a tutorial for the pieces' actions.

Now You do have two options:

A: Follow the Referee towards the parlor where everyone is.

B: Stay in the harbor with Kumasawa.

Regardless of your choice you will have three actions, you can use them however you want. The choice will only determine your starting point this round.

This round will last two days.

I choose option "A".

"I will go with you, <Mr.> Referee. This island seems to be a beatiful place." I say, looking at him, Kumasawa and Gohda. "However, <Mr.> Gohda, I think it's much better you stay here instead of <Miss> Kumasawa. An lady like her can't stay here all by herself, waiting for a dangerous typhoon."

Then, I turn around, looking at Ozaki and Kinjo. I smile to them. "Kinjo-san, Ozaki-san... Are you going with us?"

I'll follow Gohda to the parlor. Of course I'll try to remember my surroundings so that I won't get lost in the future.

"You two go on ahead without me for now. I'll stay behind and look out for the typhoon with Kumasawa here."
>> No. 5941 edit
The group consisting in Gohda, Eriko 556, Ozaki and Referee started to head towards the mansion after they waved goodbye to Kinjo and Kumasawa. When they arrived at the front door, they were greeted by Genji, who took them to the parlor where all the members of the family were.
All the family sterted welcoming the unexpected guest passing from a warm greeting from the cousins to the cold and tense words of welcome from most of the adults. The servants just bowed and said a prefabricated words such as "Is a pleasure to meet you.".
-So -started Eva after the welcome- are you the mysterious guests that no one heard about?
-It seems so. -answered Referee- Although there's one more, Kinjo, still in the harbor with Kumasawa.
-And what is doing Kumasawa still in the harbor? -asked Natsuhi
-She said that she was going to check everything down there to be sure we're prepared for the thyphoon. -answered Gohda
-Heh, I wonder if that was really her intention -said ironically Krauss.
Everyone in the family except Maria knew about Kumasawa's relationship with her work, so most of them grinned a little after Krauss' comment.
-Anyway -continued Krauss- who invited you to this conference?
-We recieved the invitation that we believe is from Kinzo Ushiromiya, it was within one of his personal envelopes and it was sealed with a seal of wax with the famous one-winged eagle. -answered Referee while handing his invitation alongside with the envelope.
After this declaration, Krauss grabbed what Referee offered to him and started examinating those objects, the more he examinated them the paler his face went.
-D...Dear -Said Natsuhi with a worried face.
-It's alright -answered Krauss, whith his head lowered with a dark expression in his face- the envelope and the seal are legit.
After this he returned to Referee those objects.
-Well, since all the mysteries are solved, -said Hideyoshi trying to lighten the mood- why don't you look around here? You can also ask us any doubts and we will try to solve them.

I'll read the letter to see if it mentions why we were invited here. If it doesn't then I'll ask the following to Krauss.

"So, we don't really know why we were invited here. Would you direct us to Kinzo so that we may ask why?

I look around.

Then I examine the rope, and attempt to take it.

I'll talk to Kumasawa, to convince her to let me do so.

"...I haven't been keeping up with the weather reports, but I've read that humidity generally rises before a storm, causing the fibers in rope to swell and knots to get tighter before a rain. Of course, this depends on the type of rope. There's no need to stand around here waiting for the typhoon when we can just take this rope with us to the mansion, right?"
>> No. 5949 edit
>>5944
1) Examine the invitation (Your's)
The invitation says:
"Dear Ozaki:
The Ushiromiya family's head, Ushiromiya Kinzo, ask for your assistance in the family conference in October the days 4th and 5th. I suspect that this year something may happen so I request your help to look for everyone's safety. The reason behind this is because someone found Beatrice's gold during the previous conference and it's still hiding that fact, so I think it would be safer if some people could take care of everyone's safety.

Yours Sincerely
Ushiromiya Kinzo."

>>5945
1) Examine Rope
The rope is in a good condition. You can see it's a rope used to tie up boats and as such it's prepared to resist bad weather and humidity. It's a thick, dam-proof and resistant rope.

2) Ask Kumasawa about taking the rope to the mansion.
-Hoh, hoh, hoh -said Kumasawa- there is no need for doing such a thing, this rope will resist the bad wather and we need it here if some other boat arrives. Also there are spare ropes in the boiler room and in the garden's shed, so there's no reason for doing such a thing.

I greet each one of them with a smile, showing warmth.

"Nice to meet you, everyone. My name is Hachijo Eriko. However, please, call me by my surname, Hachijo. When I was born, I was supposed to be named as 'Hachijo Eri', but the scrivener wrote 'Hachijo Eriko'." I say, joking a little with this stupid mistake about my name.

Then I sit on the sofa and ask for one of the servants to serve me a cup of tea.

While drinking my tea, I hear Ozaki's letter contents, I read my own letter mentaly. After this, I look with serious eyes at Krauss and ask.

"Would you mind, <Mister> Krauss, to present us to the <Head> Kinzo? Since he is the one who invented us, it would be very polite of Ushiromiya Family guide us until him."
>> No. 5953 edit
>>5952
1) Ask Krauss to present the head Kinzo.
-Well, right now he locked himself in his studio saying that he doesn't want to meet anybody. -answered Krauss- He is a very eccentric man and sometimes does things that have little to no sense to a normal person. I ask you to forgive him.

"*giggle* That's alright. I'll forgive him when me and the others meet with him."

I finish to drink my tea and get up from sofa and talk to Genji, the butler:

"<Mister> Genji, can you lead me to my room, please? I need to unpack my luggage."
>> No. 5958 edit
>>5955
2)Go to your room.
Genji leads you to your room while carrying the luggage. It's a room for guests in the second floor of the mansion. The room has a comfortable bed, a small bathroom for personal use, a closet, an armchair and a little table.
Genji, after putting the luggage on the table asked you:
-Is there anything else I can help you with?

"Hum... Yes, I need. Thank you for asking." I open the window, letting the fresh air come in.

"This place seems very big. In fact, all the island seems very big. Would you mind to draw me a map of this house, Guest House and all the island, please? I don't want to get lost.

I, also, need to know about telephone extension. Would you mind to me write in a paper, please?

And, last of all, I need to know about a key for my room. I am very zealous about my luggage and objects. I really don't want to discover something is lost and imagine that someone stole it from me. Can you, please, tell where is my room's key and give it to me?"

3)Ask Genji about your room's key
-Of course -said Genji- If you excuse me I'm going to retrieve it from the servant's room.
Genji left Hachijo's room and headed towards the first floor. After some time he returned with the key.
-Here it is -said Genji- If you wonder about the sfety of your luggage I must say that the only keys that can open and lock most of the rooms are the master keys, which are five in total, each one wielded by a different servant, in other words: Gohda, Shannon, Kannon, Kumasawa and myself have one. The rooms can also be opened with the room's specific key, which there's only one for each room. The only exceptions are Kinzo's room, the Chapel and the Shed which cannot be opened with a master key.
Also, some rooms like this one have a little chain lock on the door, the chain can only be set and undone from the inside
, well, if you excuse me, I'm going to return to the parlor now.
Genji bowed and returned to the parlor.

2)Ask Genji about a map.
-Well, we certainly have a map of the house somewhere -said Genji- I will go search it.
Genji left the room as Rudolf said:
-Poor Genji, is always borrowed to do everyone's stuff.
After a short while, Genji came back with some papers.
-Here they are. I hope they can be of some use -said Genji as he handed the papers to you.

3)Ask Genji about Beatrice
When Ozaki made his queston the mood in the parlor changed. Some members of the family made a small grin while most of the servants made a very serious face. The only one that kept her previous mood was the little Maria, who was smiling as she was doin it before.
-Well, -started Genji- is a long story. You see at the beginning of the century the Ushiromiya family was a rich family with a huge amount of mills and properties. However this was all destroyed by the great Kanto earthquake in 1923, which also took the lives of the members of the main Ushiromiya family. The side families then decided that the Master, Kinzo Ushiromiya, was the one that should the next head of the Ushiromiya family and they entrusted him the task to revive the family and it's prosperity. The Master, through a series of miraculous victories in the market and his incredible sight for new opportnities accomplished and exeeded all of his elder's expectatives. However, there's the tale that this fortune was granted with the help of the golden witch Beatrice, from which the Master borrowed 20 tons of gold. The tale says that the Master used this gold to get his fortune back and that this gold is hidden somewhere in the island and the one that finds the gold will be the next head of the Ushiromiya family and the only owner of the gold.
There is also the rumor that Beatrice's spirit is in this house, punishing those that disrespect her.

3)Ask Kumasawa about the thyphoon.
-Well, -Answred Kumasawa- the weather report said that the typhoon will arrive at 18:00, knowing how bad the sea gets during a typhoon I can say that no one can enter or leave the island during the time that the typhoon is still here. Best case scenario: It could go away tomorrow. There's also the chance that we have to spend here two nights without going out. The hour now is 12:00.
>> No. 6020 edit
Hour 13:00
-The lunch is ready -said Gohda.
Everyone headed towards the dining hall. The servants added a small table because the big one didn't have enough space for everyone because the extra people. Once everyone was in their seat Gohda started serving the first dish, it was just a simple dish that everyone could have made however, due to it's exquisite presentation and the delicacy that received the ingredients while being cooked made it look like it was a completely different dish. Of course the taste was also sublime, to most of the family it almost looked like Gohda used magic to prepare such a dish. Then after everyone in the family finished their respective dishes, Gohda started serving the second. This one was a more elaborated dish that required a lot of skill to get it properly done, however Gohda not only did achieve that level but he also modified the dish to make it even tastier, delighting everyone's palates. The conversation during dinner was a cheerful and relaxed one, everyone chatted with the people around them, making the usual joke or tease every now and then. They finally recieved the dessert, which was pumpkin cake as a reminder of the Halloween holyday. After everyone finished their dessert they continued chatting for a while.

Hour 15:00
The four cousins went to the beach with Shannon and Kannon while the seven adult members of the family went to the parlor. They needed to have an important discussion about some issues.
-First of all -started Rudolf- we have an important thing we must discuss about, don't we?
Everyone knew what was that thing, however no one wanted to make the first step in order to approach the matter. It was something unexpected for everyone in this parlor.
-Do you mean the mysterious letter that our guests have received? -asked Rosa
-Indeed -answered Rudolf- it did have some pretty interesting things written in it. Such as the gold has already been found by someone during the last family conference and that one that has found the gold didn't said anything to anyone.
-That would mean that someone that wasn't here last year didn't found the gold. -continued Kyrie- That would leave our Battler out of the question.
-That's if the letter's contents are true. Which I doubt. -interrupted Natsuhi- I don't believe that Father would invite guests without telling anything to anyone.
-Then why don't we ask him personally? -asked Eva- I think we should head towards his room and ask him about a lot of things that still don't have answer such as why he wants to protect us so badly.
-Because we're their family. -answered Natsuhi, starting to get angry- I don't see why someone would not want to protect their family.
-Enough you two. -stopped them Krauss- Natsuhi, could you please calm down?
-B...But dear... -started Natsuhi
-Natsuhi... -said Krauss with a serious expression.
Natsuhi then lowered her expression without saying anything.
-Well, -continued Kyrie- whether the contents in this invitation are true or false, the wax seal is unmistakably the one used by the family head. So maybe we should stop discussing about the veracity of this letter and start discussing about more important matters.
After this, the ones in the parlor started arguing about their personal issues.

Hour 17:15
-Hey look -said Battler- right there is Kumasawa.
The cousins' group, after playing a lot in the beach, decided to go walking alongside the shore, in the end they reached the harbor. Kumasawa was still there, it seemed that she ate her lunch, some dish based on mackerel, alongside the sea.
-Oh, hello there -said Kumasawa once she noticed the group's presence.
But before they reached Kumasaea's position they saw something in the sea.
-What's that? -asked Jessica.
-Uu! It seems like a small boat -said Maria.
-A boat? -asked George- Kumasawa, are we going to have more guests?
-Not that I knew about. -answered Kumasawa puzzled- I was told that there would be only four unexpected guests.
-So it seems that we have a fifth unexpected guest. -said Battler- The one in the boat probably went to sail, but now he can't return to Niijima before the typhoon arrives, so he must be heading towards the nearest port, which happens to be Rokkenjima's.
Once the boat arrived a person got out, his name was Rudolfo. After greeting him, the family discovered that the reason he was there was exactly the one Battler guessed.
-Wow, Battler you are good at guessing! -said Jessica surprised
-Well he was also like that when he was younger. -reminded Shannon
-That's true -said George smiling- it seems some people never really change.
After that, the members of the group helped Kumasawa to tie up the boat with a rope that was there. Once finished, the group and Kumasawa started heading towards the mansion.

Hour 18:00
The typhoon arrives. It starts raining and the temperature starts getting really cold. The sea is very agitated.
[META]Let it be known that Rudolfo's boat will be unable to sail during the time the typhoon is on the island[/META]

Hour 21:00
After dinner Rosa, Jessica, George, Maria, Shannon and Kannon started heading towards the guesthouse. Battler tried to follow them however he was stopped by Rudolf.
-Listen Battler -started Rudolf- can I ask you a big favor?
-What do you want you old bastard? -asked Battler with the usual tone he normally talked to Rudolf- If it's for money I won't lend you even a cent.
However once he saw the serious face his father had, Battler stopped joking and asked what was the matter.
-I want to ask you to stay this night in the mansion instead of going to the guesthouse.
-What!? -asked Battler surprised.
-I know you want to play with your cousins but please, I beg you to stay tonight in the mansion. -begged Rudolf.
-But why? -Battler wanted to know.
-It may be nothing -told Rudolf-, but I will feel safer if you sleep in the mansion. There's also something very important about you I want to tell you. I know this may sound incredibly selfish but please could you please listen to this old bastard? Just this time.
-Fine. -said Battler, clearly pissed- I will go tell them that I'm staying here.
-Great, you can sleep in one of these guest rooms in the second floor. Now Kyrie and me will go inside the parlor and start discussing about boring stuff with the rest of the adults that remain in the mansion, but when we have a break either me or Kyrie will go take a look at you. Oh, and Battler...
-What? -said Battler
-Thanks.
After this Battler went to communicate the situation to his cousins. The cousins were a little sad because the change in their plans but they understood Battler's motives. After saying goodbye, the group of six went to the guesthouse while Battler headed towards a guest room in the second floor.
Rudolf, relieved, turned around and headed to the parlor where almost everyone else was.

Day: October 5th
Hour 06:00
The family conference lasted all night. It had been a stormy night and no one who was in the parlor slept at all. Realizing the hour, they asked Gohda to prepare breakfast.
-We should call the ones in the guesthouse to join in our breakfast. -proposed Hideyoshi
-Go ahead -said Rudolf- I'll go wake up Battler.
Rudolf went up the stairs and knocked the door of Battler's room.
-Hey -said Rudolf- breakfast will be ready soon.
-Okay -said Battler from the other side of the door- I will be there in a second.
-Well then -said Rudolf- see you later then
Rudolf started heading towards the parlor. Once he arrived he saw that Hideyoshi was still on phone with a worried face without saying anything.
-What's wrong? -asked Rudolf
-It seems that the external line is no longer operative. -explained Hideyoshi- I've tried the internal line to call the guesthouse but nobody answered. So I asked Eva to go to the dining room so I can try the internal line.
After a moment Hideyoshi started dialing the dining room extension.
-Let's see... -said Hideyoshi- Oh, Eva, how's the phone working there? I see so the internal line is still working. Thank you dear.
In that moment Battler entered the parlor and asked what was going on. After learning the situation he said:
-Why don't we all go to the guesthouse -proposed Battler- and give them a surprise saying that the breakfast will be ready soon?
After everyone agreed they started to head to the guesthouse. However, when they arrived at their destination they saw something shocking: The corpses of Rosa, Jessica, George, Maria, Shannon and Kannon were laying in the cold and wet floor outside the guesthouse.
----
[Metaworld starts]
And we reach our first crime and with it we also reach our first metaworld. The rules of a metaworld are the same that the ones used in Umineko. The metaworld will last either when the human side runs out of theories or the sorcerer refuses to present more riddles or red. After the metaworld ends the human side's pieces will be able to examine the crime scene.
So then let's start with a simple riddle:
Riddle 1: How did the six die?
Before anything let me say that during the time between Rosa's group left the mansion and Battler's group went to the guesthouse no one entered or exited the mansion
Well then, let's start this game.

Hmm, that fact that we cannot investigate the crime seems a little unfair, however at the same time it sounds like if we were to look at the bodies the answer may be evident.

In any case I'll try the first thing that popped into my head.
There was no need for someone to leave the mansion that night, the people who went to the Guesthouse were killed via trap. More specifically poison of some sort. Hinted via the dinner scene where "a lot of skill to get it properly done" was said.

For all we know it could have been spiked or on the long shot the dish could have even been some sort of puffer fish sushi.

Rosa, Jessica, George, Maria, Shannon and Kanon are certainly the ones used in the first twilight.
Also
Those dead people outside the guesthouse died around 03:00. With this I deny any theory regarding Battler group killing them after they left the mansion at 06:00

Hopefully this is just a misunderstanding, but Knox's 4th means undiscovered drugs such as "Hinamizawa syndrome" or something like a new type of poison found from a beatle in the amazon but has yet to be found irl. Using cyanide or poison from a puffer fish is not denied by Knox's 4th.

If it was just a misunderstanding then you'll have no problems repeating this: "No poison was used for the first twilight's murders."

And because of timezones and all I'll post another blue disregarding whether or not poison was used.

In your red here there are many loopholes:
>during the time between Rosa's group left the mansion and Battler's group went to the guesthouse no one entered or exited the mansion

The culprit was already outside of the mansion when Rosa's group left.
With this in mind, all the culprit would have to do would be to not enter the mansion again until after Battler's group finds the bodies.
Which means the culprit is still outside the mansion, or just entered it after waiting all night.

Well, then, let's start. First of all, you just want to know how they died, right? This means I don't need to worry about how they get out of Guesthouse.

You, also, already confirmed that all of them are dead. However, just saying "Rosa, Jessica, George, Maria, Shannon and Kanon are certainly the ones used in the first twilight" doesn't free you from this blue!

At least one of those corpses is a fake corpse!

With this, let me continue: Since we didn't have an opportunity for investigate the 6 corpses before Metaworld begins, this 1st Twillight will be only a guessing game. (Don't worry, I'm not complaining, just doing an observation)

They were all hit to death and died, but the fact that doesn't have any blood on the floor is because they were all hit in places that didn't provoke external bleeding. Also, the Culprit cover their wounds with their clothes.

They were all stabbed to death and died, but the fact that doesn't have any blood on the floor is because the Culprit cleared their wounds and cover it with their clothes.

The culprit used all alcohol drink in Lobby to kill them. The culprit put it on their drinks and all of them died by overdose.

At least one of them died by an accident.

At least one of them commited suicide.

Since you never said about the real numbers of Culprits, I can easily say that One of those 6 people were one of the Culprits. S/He killed the other 4 people and other one killed him - making that person a Culprit - and them died by accident. Or S/He killed the other 5 people and commited suicide. Or S/He killed the other 5 people and died by accident.

Riddle 2: How did the last one die?

I want to propose you something now that we are even. Since some people commented on the issue, would you prefer to stop the metaworld, proceed with the investigation and then proceed with the metaworld.
You see, I created this game because I wanted people to have fun with it. If the people playing aren't enjoying it this game loses purpose. So feel free to call out anything that you aren't comfortable about.

Well then, are you okay with posponing the metaworld?

Also I apologize for my reckless use with the red. I just wanted it to sound fancy but it lost precision because of that.

Hmm... either way (regarding the metaworld or human investigation first) works fine. It's just that the type of gameboard is determined by whether it's a blue battle or an investigation and theory making battle. Since we've already begun the blue and red, might as well continue...

Repeat in red! The victims are all merely victims. (that is to say, that none of them are accomplices, willing or not, as well as that they are not culprits)

I'll just assume that means there is in fact a weapon, since it is a necessary founding of my following blue.

The method of murder could be a ranged weapon that can strike despite the culprit not being in the room (like shooting someone through a window). This includes weapons not originally intended to be a projectile, but could be utilized as one given the proper circumstances (like being able to throw some kinds of knives, etc)

Whe I say "advanced weapons" I mean those which are hard to understand or surreal. Such as a rocket chainsaw, to put a silly example.

Well, even so I will say that Although it is possible to use a ranged weapon within the mansion, because of the trees between the guesthouse and the mansion no one could shoot them unless they were on the third floor, and because the position of the Guesthouse the only place where the guesthouse is visible is from Kinzo's room
However this twilight doesn't end here.

Riddle 3: In the case a ranged weapon was used, how did the culprit enter Kinzo's room.

And, before we start, let me say that.
Kinzo's room has an auto-lock in the door.
Once locked, it can only be opened with a key of Kinzo's room
There are only two keys of Kinzo's room
Both were at the parlor since Rosa's group left and they remained there untill Battler group left

I see you beat me to this theory, very well then.

>>6037
There have been many ways to enter Kinzo's study without a key. So if you don't mind I will bring out the shotgun.

Someone leaving the study held the door open for the culprit.

While someone was leaving the study the door was propped open so it didn't lock, someone could then enter at a later time.

When someone left the study, the culprit rushed over before the door closed and entered.

One of the windows was used to enter the study.

An entrance was removed or made and then put back to normal to allow entrance.

The culprit was already in the study when Rosa's group left regardless of if the keys were used.

Now, returning to the game:
>In those cases I would like to ask you.
>Riddle 2: How did the last one die?

My two theories about stabbing and hit to death don't put one of six people as Culprit. In these two theories, a 7th person killed those 6 people.
However, if you put thisx 2nd riddle on the table, then this implies that there is a Culprit between those 6 people.

>>6043
Simple: The Culprit used a ladder.
The Culprit used a rope.

At 20:00 the accomplice used a rope to pull the culprit up into the study. At the same time the accomplice left. Afterwards the accomplice took the rope with them and the culprit waited to get a good shot at the victims. The victims probably didn't even make it inside the guesthouse.

They were all stabbed to death and died, but the fact that doesn't have any blood on the floor is because the Culprit cleared their wounds and cover it with their clothes.

As I can see, 1st Twillight is almost solved. As far as we know:
The Culprit probably killed the 6 people with a long-range attack inside Kinzo's Study. (>>6041, >>6070)
The wounds that prove the 6 people are dead are hiding under their clothes. (>>6070)

Now... If S/He killed them... How did S/He get into there?
It wasn't by gutters, nor rope, nor ladder, nor door.

The only thing I can think is:
The culprit get into "Waiting Room" or "One Ingot Room" and left by the window. Then, the culprit walked very carefully to Kinzo Room's window and get into there. (like those spy movie when a spy left by the window and walk until another one) This is different of "use the gutters", because gutters are on the roof.

However, if wasn't this...
The Culprit didn't necessary need to be in Kinzo's room to do a long-range attack. The Culprit is known by the 6 people, implying they could easily open Guest House door to him/her and the culprit killed them with:
Darts, stones, spear, another gun (you never said how many guns exist in Rokkenjima), glass (for example, throwing a bottle of alcohol drink), etc.


If you throw something at someone, this is considered as a long-range attack. If don't, then, please, give me or definition of "Long-range attack" and "Short-range attack".

Unless you can deny certain parts of this theory: "The accomplice opened the window and then made it possible for the culprit to enter the study via rope. Later, the culprit used the rope to enter the study. This window was in the courtyard so it still counts as inside the mansion."

This is only one combination, the main parts in the theory are that the accomplice helped the culprit into the study one way or another. Additionally I can tweak it to fit other scenarios easily, such as the culprit could have brought the rope and used it themselves, or they could have been outside the mansion, just they did it all before rosa's group left the mansion.

After Battler's group found the corpses of the guesthouse group, Rudolf told Kumasawa to explain the situation to the rest of the people. Kumasawa went and reunited everyone of the living members of the family outside the guesthouse, then she told the situation to the Referee, who went to call all the detectives and told them the situation.

The three detectives went to the guesthouse where they found the family. Most of the members had their faces red from sadness or anger. The Referee then said:
-It's a tragic event, all of them have died here, exposed to the thyphoon. It's really infuriating. I want to catch whoever did it and send it to jail.
-But we can't do anything!? -said Eva, crying- The bastard that killed my poor George is still free! Ooh George, why!? Why would anyone do such a thing to you!?
-Calm down, Eva -said Hideyoshi with a dark expression.
-Don't worry everyone, -said the Referee- the people that are here with me came here to try to gather some clues about the murder so we can know how it was done. They are detectives sent to this family conference, so they will try to investigate the crime scene, please give them all the information they need. I've heard that the one that joined us last, Rudolfo, is also a detective. However he is right now in the room in the mansion. I think he didn't felt well.
After everyone heard the Referee, they let the detectives do their job.
