Indoctrination of the Golden Witch
Alrighty, I might as well post an extremely easy game for you all. Well, it should be easy, I hope.
Naturally, I won't bother with character interactions or anything like that. Just summarized form. Also, keep in mind that the murders will start (and end) on Day 1. (Why waste time, after all?) Also - I'm not really going by the twilights here. Think of this as a basic whodunnit.
So let's get started:

[10:00]
The Ushiromiya family arrives for the annual family conference on Rokkenjima. To make it simple, let's say that in this universe Ushiromiya Rosa does not exist. The extension of this would be: Ushiromiya Maria was never born and does not exist. All the other members of the family that have been established to exist in the normal Umineko universe still exist, alive or dead. Those people are: Battler, Kyrie, Hideyoshi, Eva, Krauss, Natsuhi, Kinzo, Rudolf, George and Jessica. The servants from the standard Umineko universe still exist and exist on the island, alive or dead.

[11:00]
During this time, the cousins have gathered in the guesthouse and unpacking. The adults have left for the mansion. At this moment in time, George, Battler and Jessica are in Guest Room 1. Shannon and Kanon are in the servant's room. Genji and Nanjo are in Kinzo's study. The adults are gathered in the parlor of the mansion and are discussing the issue of inheritance. Ghoda and Kumasawa are talking in the kitchen.

[11:25]
The clouds are starting to gather. A storm appears to be coming.
A shipwreck occurs and detective Furudo Erika is washed on the shore. She makes her way to the guesthouse, where she is given clothes and introduced to the cousins and servants.

[12:00]
Everyone alive on the island is gathered in the dining room. (Lunch.)

[13:25]
At this moment in time, George and Battler are in the guesthouse. Jessica is in her room in the mansion. Shannon and Ghoda are in the kitchen. Kyrie and Rudolf are in their respective room. Eva is talking to Krauss and Natushi in the parlor. Hideyoshi and Erika are on their way to the guesthouse. Nanjo and Ghoda are in Kinzo's study.

[14:35]
Kumasawa comes across a horrible sight. She finds Jessica, in her room, dead. Apparently stabbed in the chest. Ushiromiya Jessica is now dead.

14:40]
The couins and Erika are sent to the guesthouse. The adults gather in the parlor, deciding what to do. Out of a safety precaution, they decide to lock all the servants up in the VIP room.

[15:00]
A heavy storm takes over and rain starts to fall.
Erika decides to investigate and leaves the guesthouse, however seals all the doors and windows. At this moment in time, George and Battler are now the only humans in the guesthouse.

[15:10]
Ushiromiya Natsuhi and Krauss leave and lock themselves in their bedroom.

[16:00]
Erika makes her way to the servant's room. She puts her ear on the door. She can all of the servants inside.
She then makes her way to the parlor, only to come across a bizzare sight - Kyrie, Rudolf, Eva and Hideyoshi are dead. The cause of their death is irrelevant.

[16:15]
Erika checks the seals on the guesthouse. They have not been broken.

[16:25]
George and Battler make their way to the mansion after being told what happened. Erika advises them that the best course of action is to keep an eye on all of the servants. While George is against that - Battler convinces him that it's the best thing to do. She seals the servant's room.

[16:35]
Krauss comes out of his and Natsuhi's room, asking what happened. Erika tells him what she saw. Enraged, and highly suspicious, he locks Erika in the VIP room. Krauss posseses the only key to it. He acknowledges that there's a possibility that the servants may be the culprits and leaves Erika's previous seal on the servant's room. He then goes to his and Natsuhi's bedroom and inform Natsuhi of what happened. To protect her, he locks the door to their bedroom from outside. Krauss has the only key to it.

[17:10]
Another "tragedy". Because of the storm, a blackout occurs and when the lights return, Kumasawa and Ghoda are dead seen dead in the servant's room. Let's say their heads have been cut off. Battler checks the seal on the room - it's been broken. Banding together, Shannon, Kannon and George take the weapons (namely, the shotguns) and corner the remaining survivors. They lock Battler in Kinzo's study. Shannon locks the door using her master key. They lock Krauss in Kyrie's and Rudolf's room. Kanon locks the door using his master key. George checks if Krauss' and Natsuhi's bedroom and the VIP room are locked. They are locked.

[17:15]
Shannon, George, Kanon, Nanjo and Genji are gathered in the parlor.

[17:20]
Gunshots are heard on the floors above. They first check Kinzo's study. Battler is still there, alive and well. They leave him in the room and lock the door, yet again. They check Kyrie's and Rudolf's room. They found Krauss dead. He was shot once in the chest. They then checked Natsuhi's and Krauss' bedroom and find Natsuhi, stabbed. They check on Erika. She is still alive. Desperate, they let her out of the room.

[18:00]
Eventually, the survivors let Battler out of Kinzo's study. The survivors gather in the parlor. Everyone alive on the island is now gathered in the parlor. Shannon, Kanon and George are still armed.

[18:30]
Yet another blackout. This time, when the lights return, the sight is even worse - Battler, George, Nanjo and Shannon are dead. Their causes of death are irrelevant.

[18:50]
Everyone alive moves quickly to the guesthouse. On her way out, Erika seals the entire mansion.

[19:00]
The rest of the survivors gather in the guesthouse. By midnight, only the culprit will be alive. At this time, Erika, Genji and Kanon are alive in the guesthouse.

So, simple question: Who was the culprit and how did they do it?

Apologies for the typos/mistakes. Kind of new to this... :/

Isn't that interesting. Lots of gameboards these days. I like that.

Hm, I'll start with an easy blue truth for the general setting that seems fairly obvious : Kinzo is dead since before the start of the family conference
And another one that would be great : Shannon and Kannon are different people
According to the way you described the different groups, I am enclined to assume that each time you refer to "the servants" as a whole, you are referring to Kanon, Shannon, Genji, Kumasawa, Gohda and Nanjo

Well ! Time to start this mystery shall we ?

1st twilight : Jessica's death.
No special trick was used, the culprit simply stabbed her and left.
The culprit could be pretty much anyone at this point, no need to delve into it there.

2nd Twilight : Kyrie, Rudolf, Eva and Hideyoshi's death.
Well, this one already seems more interesting. Basically we have 3 groups of people here : The servants in the VIP room, George and Battler in the Guesthouse and Krauss and Natsuhi in their bedroom ( In Umineko they are shown to have separate bedrooms, I think this is only one room that you are talking about here, right ? )
Well, anyway, there are multiple possibilities :
Now, the obvious one : Krauss and Natsuhi killed them., It's easy to place since they are the only group not locked or sealed.

Now, for the servants, we are given that Erika heard all of them, however, it doesn't mean forcefully mean that they are all in the room.
A recording device has been used to imitate one of the servant's voice..
One of the servant has mimicked another's voice.
Now, the main reason I bring this up is so that one of them could be the culprit, for this murder at least. And since they are locked by Krauss's only key, Krauss has let one the servant out of the VIP room.

For the last group, it would be particularly hard for them to have committed this murder, but there is always the possibility that they replaced Eirka's seal after it has been broke so they could escape.

[b]3rd twilight : Kumasawa and Gohda's death

Since the seal has been broken , it's fairly obvious that Krauss has something to do with this murder, since he possess the only key to it.
So either a servant inside the servant's room killed them. Krauss opened the room afterwards for some reason, or it's Krauss himself, using his key to enter, that killed them

4th twilight : Krauss and Natsuhi's death
Well this twilight seems to be a bit tricky, since it relies a lot on keys. The location of most of the keys aren't given in red to us. We know that Kanon and Shannon both have their own, I suppose Genji has his own, too. Gohda and Kumasawa's master keys aren't even brought up ( assuming there is only 5 master keys, one for each servant ) and I don't know about the VIP room's key nor Natsuhi and Krauss's bedroom key, either Krauss has them or the group in the parlor has them. Well, I'll try :
Firstly, they're the obvious solution :
One of the members of the parlor killed them. Since they are in possession in most of the keys, it seems only logical, Natsuhi's bedroom key was retrieved on Krauss corpse or they already took it when they locked him in the room.

Second, a little crazy one:
Krauss has retrieved Gohda or Kumasawa's master key before getting locked up. He then use it to get out of the room. He is possession of his bedroom's key. He opens it. Natsuhi is in there, for some a reason a fight occur. Ntsuhi gets stabbed and Krauss gets shot. Natsuhi takes Krauss's body to Kyrie and Rudolf's room, then she lock herself in her room. She isn't dead since she is only refer as "stabbed"

There's always the possibility that Battler got out Kinzo's study before getting locked up. Battler took Gohda or Kumasawa's master key to get out of the study, use it to get to Krauss and kill him, retrieve Natsuhi's bedroom key and then kill her. He retreat to Kinjo's study shortly after.

The same theory can be applied to Erika, honestly, even more so since she is in the same room as Gohda and Kumasawa's corpse.

5th Twilight : Battler, George, Shannon and Nanjo's death
Well this one is pretty blunt : One or several of the three survivors killed them
I don't really have anything to add, I'll wait for your response to it I guess.

Now some last general blues :
Another person not mentioned in the story is on the island.
Secret passages exist on the island

Well, I think that's more than enough for starters. I may have gone overboard with my shotgun-style blue there, sorry ~

Oho~

Also, I should probably note this, since I noticed it a bit later: Erika was not let out of the VIP room during the servant "takeover".

Kinzo is dead since before the start of the family conference.
Shannon and Kannon are different people.
Each time I refer to "the servants" as a whole, I am referring to Kanon, Shannon, Genji, Kumasawa, Gohda and Nanjo.


1st Twilight:
The culprit simply stabbed her and left, correct.

2nd Twilight:
Yes, when I talk about Krauss' and Natsuhi's bedroom, I'm talking about one room.
Krauss let no servant out of the VIP room.
Nobody on the island has the power to mimick anyone's voice other than their own.
No recording device was used.
The seal on the guesthouse was not disturbed or replaced in any way.


3rd Twilight:
I will acknowledge that nobody inside the room is responsible for their death, but nothing more.

4th Twilight:
Let's make this a bit more interesting:
Nobody left the parlor during the time of the 4th Twilight.
Natsuhi was killed before Krauss.
Erika is the detective.


5th Twilight:
Since at this point you don't have a definitive theory to go with so far, I won't answer the blue regarding the final deaths.

Finally...
There exists no extra person on the island.
Secret passages do not exist on the island.

Well, the main reason I didn't answer it is because you haven't provided me with a theory that can incorporate them as culprits in all of the twilights. In other words, if I say anything to this, I would just be hand-feeding you, in a way if I straight up told you "it's not them".

But I will say this - There is only one culprit.

I see, well I expect a weird red that would have seemingly made it impossible for them to participate.

It seems I'll have to ask for general things.

Request : Definition of culprit.

For the VIP room : The key Krauss possess is the only way of locking and unlocking this room
Also, I would like to know the presence of windows and the way they are unlocked/opened.
Same thing for Natsuhi/Krauss and Kyrie/Rudolf's bedroom.


When you say that Erika is the detective, does this fall under Knox's rules ? Or what exactly does this mean ? Is her hearing flawless ?

Would it be also too much to ask for the state of the different keys at the moment of the 4th Twilight ?

Let's see. The culprit is "the one who kills".
As for the VIP room, it can be opened with the master keys.
No window was opened in the VIP room, Natsuhi/Krauss or Kyrie/Rudolf's bedroom.


And yeah, I can't respond to the location of the master keys.

Added:
Also, yeah, I mean that Erika's the detective in Knox's sense.

Ah, I get it, when you said that Krauss has the only key that can open the VIP room and Natsuhi's room you meant the normal key that can only open one room, while the master keys works as usual. God confused because Umineko's classic VIP room cannot be opened by master keys.

Well anyway, I think I can safely assume that
the culprit faked his death wanna hear why ?

Well, again, you have to keep in mind that this isn't the standard Umineko universe. I made more than one change to it, obviously.

Don't keep me in suspense.

There is only one culprit aka there is only one to kill.
Let's skip to the 3rd twilight :
I will acknowledge that nobody inside the room is responsible for their death (Kumasawa and Gohda's)
This means that the four people inside can't be the culprit since they didn't kill them.

Now if we skip to the last part :
By midnight, only the culprit will be alive. At this time, Erika, Genji and Kanon are alive in the guesthouse.
Erika is the detective, she can't be the culprit, and Genji and Kanon were art of that group inside the VIP room. Thus the three we know to be alive cannot, in fact, be the culprit. Since the culprit will be the only one alive in the end, he's obviously faking his death.

There are two ways for this to be false : The 3rd twilight's death was an accident
And if by some nasty wordplay Genji or Kanon aren't part of the group in the VIP room.
Now what do you think of this ?

Marvelous. Gotta be careful with your red ~
Well, I gotta finish all these twilights before I get to the who, I do think it'll present itself along the way.

2nd Twilight
Poison was used
Traps were used
The culprit simply killed them ( by stabbing/shooting, etc... ) and got out. The way he managed to get there is another mystery

3rd Twilight
The culprit got in the VIP room and simply killed them. To get in the VIP room he could have : used Krauss's key ( Either it's Krauss or Krauss's key was stolen ), or stolen a master key from one of the servants before they were locked.
A trap was used
The culprit got in the VIP room through the window.
Since you denied a window ever having been open, he may have broke through the window or removed the window.

Still have to think for the two remaining cases.

No poison or trap was used for any of the deaths!
Correct, the culprit simply entered the VIP room through the door and killed them.
None of the servant's master keys were stolen from them before being locked in the VIP room.
Krauss' key to the VIP room did not unlock that door during the time of the 4th Twilight.
During the 4th Twilight, no windows were opened, closed or removed!

Eh, this getting interesting.
The VIP room was never locked from the beginning. No red statement about it after all.
Physical force was used to open the door without keys.
The door was picklocked. The culprit possess a self-made copy of the key or of one master key.
The door was broken.

The walls were broke
The culprit got in through the ceiling.

The 6th key belonged to Kinzo. When he died Krauss probably took it for himself or let it in his study.

Alright Squitcher I don't know what your theory is but my first idea was Kanon or Genji. Assuming you have figured out all the other closed rooms then I'd ask; what are the mysteries left that need to be solved?

The servants were locked in the VIP room by Krauss, but then Erika heard the servants in the servant's room, and none of the servants used their keys to unlock the door. So in other words, someone used the 6th master key to unlock the VIP room from the outside after Krauss locked it, and then the servants all moved to the servant's room, right? I imagine they thought Krauss had let them out, since he had the only other key.

Also,

I think that when he wrote " the servant's room" he refers to the VIP room, as in "the room where the servants are gathered". I've done the same here, referring to Kyrie and Rudolf's room as "Krauss's room" because Krauss was locked within.
And this red was in response to my own blue about the 3rd Twilight since it takes the exact same form.

Speaking about that you didn't respond to my simple blue there about the 2nd Twilight
>>8089

>>8127
Well I solved the 1st, 3rd and 4th Twilight. I assumed I had done the same for the 2nd but without a red truth I can't say I did.
The main reason why I don't want to put the blame on Kanon or Genji is because I thought I proved the innocence of all the servants way back in the posts.
>>8086
But it seems I was wrong.
All the servants are innocents, as I proved.
All the servants were inside the VIP room at the moment of the 3rd twilight


Request : Confirmation of all the people alive before the 5th Twilight.

One of the four survivor of the 5th Twilight ( If Nanjo is alive, kinda confused about that ) simply killed Shannon, George and Battler in the blackout

Aww, I liked my Genji + Beatrice accomplice theory. Although it was already denied a few posts ago.

The only way I can see around this is if one of the names actually refers to two people, and one of those people is the culprit. Since the culprit never disguised himself in any way and everyone alive on the island met for lunch, that means everyone is aware that they’re two different people and we just couldn’t tell from the narration. Despite that, they were both mentioned in the narrative, so the 'extra person' rule doesn't eliminate them.

I guess the second person could also be someone who isn't on the island at all, but that would be pretty silly.

Also, definition check: "Death" and all related terms refer to the immediate and permanent physical death of a human body and to no other concept.

I keep coming back to the "multiple gunshots" at the 4th Twilight, especially since Erika wasn't allowed to view the bodies and might be under the impression that both Krauss and Natsuhi were shot. That would have been a great time for Battler to murder the other Battler after letting himself out of the study with his master key. Then he could drag the corpse out during the blackout at the 5th Twilight.

Ok, 13 people died. (red)
At the end, 3 people are alive in the guesthouse. (green)

These 3 can't be the culprit.
Which means, the culprit is still alive, the 4th person (he's just not in the guesthouse)
The 13 victims are dead for sure and can't be the culprit.

I've got some problems with the reds, especially with: Before the murders of the 5th Twilight, no more than 7 people were alive.

But I think Eccaia is right about the "hidden character".

Hmm. We know that at 17:15, people named Shannon, George, Kanon, Nanjo, and Genji were alive in the parlor, and people named Battler and Erika were alive elsewhere. No one left the parlor until 17:20, and afterwards that group collected Battler and Erika. Assuming that everyone moved together between then and 18:00 and no one went missing, there's no room for an 8th person to exist in the group, so the extra person must have one of those 7 names.

Shannon, George, and Kanon are innocent because they were together constantly from the time they locked up Krauss until they found him dead. Also, because of the discrepancy with the number of gunshots at the 4th Twilight, the multiple gunshot sounds were probably from something like a string of firecrackers that was rigged to go off by itself in order to give the culprit an alibi. This is ineffective unless the culprit is with the group in the parlor, so we can probably mark Erika and Battler innocent too. That just leaves Genji and Nanjo, but I’m having trouble narrowing it down from there because I can make a theory with either of them. Say the name of the extra person is X…

0T: Culprit X stole the master key from Kinzo’s corpse while he was in the study at the beginning of the game.
1T: Culprit X just walked into Jessica’s room and committed the murder.
2T: Likewise. Although Servant X was in the VIP room, Culprit X remained free to roam the mansion.
3T: During the blackout, Culprit X entered the VIP room and killed Kumasawa, Gohda, and Servant X. Instead of carefully removing and replacing the door seal, he deliberately broke it, which created the impression that it had been opened from the inside. Then, after committing the murders, he took Servant X’s corpse out of the room and hid it somewhere to make him look like the culprit.
4T: Culprit X was left alone until the gathering in the parlor. He entered Natsuhi’s room and killed her first, then followed Shannon’s group until they locked up Krauss and shot him after they left. Before returning to the parlor, he set up a string of firecrackers on a long fuse so they would go off after he had rejoined the survivors.
5T: Culprit X just killed the victims during the blackout.
6T: Culprit X accompanied the survivors to the guesthouse and killed all of them.

I'm not sure how to nail down the culprit from there without knowing whether the corpse of Nanjo at the 5th Twilight really belonged to the Nanjo who was sitting in the parlor or not. On the other hand, judging from the previous murders, the culprit seems to be interested in framing Servant X, and I think it would be disadvantageous to have the scapegoat’s corpse turn up, so I’m leaning toward Genji. I also thought it was interesting that Shannon’s group didn’t give Genji a gun, implying that he isn't the Genji they work with and trust.

The sounds heard from upstairs during the events of the 4th Twilight were most certainly gunshots.
The culprit was in possession of Kinzo's master key before the murders, yes.
(Regarding the 3rd Twilight:) Nobody inside the room is responsible for their death. (By "them", I'm referring to Kumasawa and Ghoda.)
Natsuhi and Krauss were still alive before 17:15.

Ah, finally ! Then it's almost the end of this mystery isn't it ? ~
The trick has already been mostly solved, but I guess there's that to add :
The culprit killed one of 4 supposed victims of the 5th twilight before hand. My supposed guess would be Nanjo, but it doesn't really matter.
The culprit got into the parlor (The conundrum with the number has already been solved, no need to mention it again ), and simply killed them in the blackout.

Now, for the culprit identity, my best guess would be that the culprit is Jessica.
Not Ushiromiya Jessica, though, since Ushiromiya Jessica is now dead, the fact that she was the only one whose death was confirmed along with her family name tipped me off, especially when I learned that culprit had another name.
Jessica has another name, another family name, that is, she "killed" or got rid of her other family name at the time of the 1st twilight, maybe by renouncing to the heritage or some shit like that.
She got the key from Kinzo's study or from her father, wherever it was. She had easy access to it, living on the island and whatnot.


So, what do you think of that, DWaM ?

Not. Quite.

Jessica is not the culprit. Jessica does not posses any other names. Nor has she thrown away her name or anything of the sort.
Everyone in the parlor who was alive was aware of everyone else in the parlor that was alive.
Are you suggesting that they just sat back with Jessica in the parlor for 30 minutes? And before you try to suggest anything, remember:

> The survivors gather in the parlor. Everyone alive on the island is now gathered in the parlor. Shannon, Kanon and George are still armed.

Well damn. I was so proud of my Jessica culprit theory. I guess if it isn't her it's probably one of the supposed victim of the 2nd twilight then.

I'm kinda confused by the awareness thing ? Did they actually thought that the person supposed dead was with them ? Weren't they aware of the person supposed dead actually being alive ?

I dunno, but here's some blue for ya :
The survivors weren't aware of the culprit's supposed death in the first place
One or several survivors are the culprits accomplices : they threatened the other survivors so there wouldn't be any conflict ( especially work with the armed person as accomplices and explain the servant's takeover. )
The culprit simply explained his alive status by some lie like he faked his death, the culprit missed a vital spot, etc...

I'm... a little confused by your reasoning here, to be honest, but I'll play along, I guess~:

When I said that everyone was aware of each other in the parlor, I meant that in the sense that they found nothing suspicious about other people's presence there (everyone who was supposed to be there, all things considered and seen was there). In other words, if Jessica was the culprit, they would've instantly known she was the culprit. But they didn't and instead felt at ease (considering the 30 minute gap). Also, remember - the culprit never disguised himself.

Now, onto your blues...
The survivors knew and were aware of everyone that was suposed to have been killed up to that point. (Either they saw it for themselves, or were told by someone else, it doesn't really matter.)
There are no accomplices.
The culprit did no such thing. (Let's be frank, if he or she did, he or she would've been suspect no. 1 from then on out.)

Well, I'm a little confused myself by this new mystery, after all you kept pulling oddities after another. Not that I complain of course, it makes things more enjoyable, but also make my explanations more confusing ~

Well this is the weirdest thing I have to argue about yet in terms of gameboards.
So basically the parlor members knew that the culprit was supposed to be killed ( Yeah, still going for that theory ) but didn't suspect him when he came back.
It's a pretty confusing scenario, and an unusual for sure.
The culprit presented a fake alibi that made him innocent for the others.
It's all I've got for now.

Oh, let me try this.
Ushiromiya Rosa doesn't exist because she was expelled from the family. Rosa, however does exist.

Sorry for the delayed response, I'm back now.

>>8188
Hmm... Well, that would fall under my previous red: The culprit did no such thing. It sorta refers to the entire scenario, in general.

>>8189
Nope. Rosa does not exist, in any way.

Re: 3rd twilight, in the room when? You said that the culprit simply entered the VIP room through the door and killed them, so by definition they must have been in the room during the murder. I never said they stuck around afterward.

About the multiple gunshots, try these on for size.
- The culprit missed Krauss the first time he fired his gun, perhaps because of a struggle.
- Krauss obtained a gun from Kyrie and Rudolf's room and fired it at the culprit before being killed.
- The culprit deliberately fired an extra round so that he could suggest to the survivors that the culprit must have committed suicide.
- He could also suggest that Kinzo had been murdered during the 4th Twilight. If this came from Genji or Nanjo, it would sound suspicious to the other one since they both saw the body, but if "Battler" is the culprit, he wouldn't know that the corpse had already been found.

As for the culprit:
- Anyone who wasn't in the parlor and wasn't locked up during the 4th twilight would be a clear suspect to the other survivors, so "Battler" who was supposedly locked in the study is the likely culprit by process of elimination.
- If the culprit was able to make an excuse for what they were doing at the 4th Twilight, then it could be George or Nanjo. For instance, the Nanjo who was "gathered in the parlor" during the 4th twilight was the corpse of servant-Nanjo, while the other non-servant Nanjo was upstairs committing the murders.

Well, London is expensive as hell, but, yeah, it was pretty good.

3rd Twilight: The red refers to everyone that was in the room before the actual murders. IIRC, you suggested that someone inside the room was responsible for it, or something similar?

Correct, the culprit's first shot at Krauss missed. Simple as that.

For your Battler theory, I can't really comment on it until you can provide me with an explanation of all the Twilights. Same with the Nanjo theory (primarily because I'm interested in seeing how you can possibly explain what happens after that, keeping in mind there's no extra person on the island...)

3rd Twilight: No, I said the culprit tried to make it look that way by breaking the seal when he didn't have to, but he came from outside.

As long you leave that "two people with the same name" extra person loophole open, even if you say "X is dead" or "X is a servant", it won't work~

"Battler" version:
1T: Walked in and killed Jessica.
2T: Walked in and killed the siblings. The other Battler was the one in the guesthouse.
3T: Unlocked the door with the spare master key and killed Kumasawa and Gohda during the blackout. He could also kill the other Battler and hid the corpse in the parlor during this time.
4T: Snuck out of the study to kill Krauss and Natsuhi, then let himself back in with his master key.
5T: Killed the victims during the blackout and then dragged out the corpse of the other Battler.
6T: Went to the guesthouse with the victims and killed them.
The extra Battler could be Asumu's child that was miscarried in the original story.

"Nanjo" version:
1T: Walked in and killed Jessica.
2T: Walked in and killed the siblings. The servant Nanjo was the one locked up in the VIP room.
3T: Unlocked the door with the spare master key and killed Kumasawa, Gohda, and the servant Nanjo during the blackout, then dragged servant Nanjo's corpse away and hid it.
4T: Separated from the group before they went to the parlor (satisfying "no one left the parlor") and killed Krauss and Natsuhi. The Nanjo that was in the parlor was the hidden corpse from the 3rd twilight.
5T: Killed the victims during the blackout and dragged out servant Nanjo's corpse.
6T: Went to the guesthouse with the victims and killed them.
The extra Nanjo could be Nanjo Masayuki from EP4, for instance.

Welp, while the Battler theory isn't really close to the solution, you figured out the basic concept, and the "double name" thing would just confuse everyone in the end, I'll just present the solution.

The culprit is the adopted son of Kyrie and Rudolf (therefore *technically* not a true part of the family) who changed his name to Battler (his original name didn't matter), note that this person was not the same person in the Umineko universe in terms of personality or the looks. He didn't need a name double, he had something a lot... loop-hole-y up his sleeve. You see, the Kinzo of this island was suffering from split personality disorder and had two personalities: his own and a personality of Battler. Because they inhibited the same body, they were both part of the family but, more importantly, of the same body. So, "Kinzo" was just as much as Battler as he was Kinzo (in other words, he was both). After his death, "Battler" eventaully came across his body and the Master Key. He then put his plan in motion.
1T: He simply walked in and killed Jessica killed Jessica.
2T: It was Kinzo's body that was in the guesthouse with George (hidden, of course). Of course, because Kinzo was both Battler and Kinzo in this universe, the red wasn't broken. Shortly after, and returned to the guesthouse (but only after Erika checked the seal).
3T: Of course, again, he simply walked in and killed Kumasawa and Ghoda.
4T: Same thing, he simply walked in and killed the two of them.
5T: Again, killed the victims. The body he used was Kinzo's.


I can understand that this is a lame solution (and that there will probably going to be complaints, hell, I wouldn't be surprised if I screwed up somewhere with the reds) but it was fun to play with you all. I promise, if I ever make another game, it won't be as... erm... annoying as this one.

Well, I guess you said everything I could have complained about. I have nothing more to say than
Thank you for this game and you better come back with a better one !
The really annoying thing about the multiple names/personality solutions is that they are endless in their way of passing loophole, and as a player it's really hard to find them. At last try dropping clues about it next time !

Erm, well, I tried to give it on some occasions, if memory serves me correctly (if I had to guess, I probably made them too vague or something). And yeah, I think I'll make another game, one that won't use loopholes (the irony is, I actually don't like those kinds of games, either...), but until then, I think I'm better off trying to solve one, at the moment.

Well, it's usually best to put the clues in the original "story' I think.

If you want to participate in a game, well Lion said he would prepare a new kakera after his last, but it seems he has other things to take care of. I'm personally finally typing my gameboard in. It will be much smaller than what I had originally in mind but at least I'll be able to finish it this way. Don't get your hopes up though, It will take a long time to be done because of my laziness

Yeah, I also like games that have most or all of the clues in the narrative.

I have a fairly complicated board that will turn up on here sooner or later, I just need to iron out a couple of plot kinks.
