Thread #1

Thread #2

Thread #3

A man, one you recognize as having been the man in the portrait, appears in front of you in a flash of light. The world all around shatters as fog and mist envelop the area. As it clears you find yourself standing in a great barren wasteland. Swords lie about jutting out of the ground, and great gears spin in the background.

"Welcome, esteemed detectives, to my domain. I open this thread to challenge you all to unlock the truth of these days, to discover how the events unfolded. Others may join in as well (I do in fact gladly accept their challenge), but the three in-game detectives of Squitcher, RIKA-Beatrice and Eccaia are the primary subjects of concern. Without further ado, allow us to begin. Have you any questions, problems, complaints, concerns? If not then we can begin pursuing the truth.

Also, just for the record: Tomitake and Ozaki are the same person.

Manifestation #1
I am the bone of my sword.
Two men dead in the third floor study.

The latch could be opened even when it was set. Therefore, the culprit could enter the study through the window! Tomitake noticed the fault with the latch while sneaking around the courtyard on the first day. Then he killed Rudolf and left through the door, which automatically locked behind him! As for Kinzo, his alcohol was poisoned! Anyone could have sneaked into the study at some point and poisoned one of Kinzo's wine bottles. There's nothing strange about it!

The absinthe that Kinzo drank was just absinthe (prepared or not). There was nothing in it that would surprise an absinthe drinker (adding sugar and water is typical, etc). Furthermore
he prepared the drink himself and no tampering occurred before or after that.

Kinzo was murdered.

I guess that rules out suicide entirely then.

Kinzo's flask, not the alcool, was poisoned, which meant that as soon that he'd put his lips over the flask to drink, he'd be unknowingly swallowing poison.

I'm not particularly interested in the way he did managed to get inside since I have dozen of theories about it, but I should probably get on to it regardless.

The culprit stole Kinzo or Genji's key.

Supposing Rudolf was granted access to the study by Kinzo, the culprit profited of the moment Rudolf entered to enter as well.

The door was blocked by some object, not allowing the auto-lock to activate.

The culprit lock picked the door.

Considering Kinzo's murder, I'm supposing that "murdering" means willingly causing one's death :

The culprit forced Kinzo to drink 'till he died. After all, absinthe is a pretty fucking strong alcohol.

Which is not unlike what Nanjo said.


The culprit caused Kinzo to have a heart attack by startling him or something

I doubt someone such as Kinzo would die this way, but you never know.

Hmmm, the culprit did not possess Kinzo or Genji's key to the study at any time during the game.

The culprit did not sneak in whilst someone else was being let in.

The door was not blocked open.

The door was not lock-picked.

True, Kinzo died from the alcohol in his system, but he knew his limits and would not accidentally drink too much alcohol.

Heh, this blue should have naturally came right after that answer.
Then, someone other than Rudolf or Kinzo let the culprit inside the study, that person could have been let in by KInzo or Rudolf, or by one of the ways I described in this post.
Just replace culprit by a third party.

Repeat this in red :

"The only way to open the door of the study from the outside is by possessing either Genji or Kinzo's key."

If the culprit willingly caused Kinzo's state which led him to drink himself to death, it can be considered as murder

A third key of the study, not made by Kinzo, exists.

As for the drink, I think I get it.
The culprit managed to make Kinzo absorb/swallow a chemical or some similar stuff that, when it would enter in contact with absinthe or alcool in general, it would kill him.

Correct, A third key of the study, not made by Kinzo, exists.

But that doesn't mean I've lost yet! The only poisonous substance in Kinzo's body is alcohol. Kinzo died from alcohol poisoning but not from drinking it. Clearly magic was used to turn his innards into alcohol.

Heh, don't count on me to give up so easily.

After he drank his absinthe, Kinzo tried to drink a non-alcoholic beverage from his flask, but the culprit had filled the flask with alcohol without Kinzo knowing.

If it ain't the flask, just replace it with a bottle, a glass or whatever.

Correct. Had you made an additional search of Kinzo's corpse particularly questioning the toes (since his socks were off), you would have found where he was injected: in between the 5th and 6th toe.

The culprit sneaked into the room and killed Kinzo in his sleep. Rudolf was outside the room when the culprit attempted to leave, so the culprit lured Rudolf into the room and killed him. Add a little mess to add to the idea of a huge fight, and we have ourselves a closed room.

This one seems pretty straightforward :
Eva and Rosa both went out of their room, I'm guessing they were called by the culprit, then, the culprit killed them/knocked them unconscious and finally put the bodies in the boiler and turned it on.

As for how he got out of the room, I'm gonna steal Erika and Eccaia's theory :
The culprit set the latch on the backdoor, then placed the wooden board against the door so that it would block the door when he would close it, so that he'd be outside and the door would be blocked

Ahah ! I should definitely set the bases clear before I start throwing blues around, it's much more convenient~

Then, this seems obvious !
No matter how you look at it, a third exit exists ! The culprit used a third exit after having set the latch and blocked the door to get out.
This third exit could be anything, but I'd personally bet on the vent, though in the realm of silly possibilities, the furnace itself could hide some kind of escape, or simply a secret passage exists.
Well, in any case, a third exit definitely was used by the culprit !

Oh, I'd kind of stopped checking this place since it was down for a while. But it's quite fitting that Squitcher-san should fight that other man while I fight my rival, isn't it?

After leaving with Genji, you went to the servant's room and replaced the kitchen key with a different key to make it look like the kitchen key hadn't been used. You then locked the servant's room with Genji' master key, and got into Kinzo's study using the faulty window latch to remove Kinzo's corpse. Then, you took it to the kitchen, where you proceeded to dress it in your own clothes and stab it to the point where it was unrecognisable. Afterwards, you placed Genji's master key in the room, left the room, locked it with the kitchen key, and both went hiding somewhere. Genji was the one who later dressed up as the man in red and murdered the survivors.

Wow, did you actually just say that? Thanks for the offer, although I don't swing that way.

Then what about the other keys? Perhaps the master key we found inside the room wasn't Genji's, or one of the other servants' master keys was replaced with a fake at some point.

Also, can you confirm that all the doors and windows to the kitchen and the servant's room cannot be locked from the outside without the specified key? And that there are only five master keys?

The kitchen key was left outside the servant's room. While we were investigating the kitchen, one of the servants slipped away, put the kitchen key in the servant's room and locked the door with their master key.

Or there is an exit in the kitchen or the servant's room which we were not aware of, and therefore wasn't locked after the culprit or an accomplice escaped through it. Or there is a secret area in one of the rooms where the culprit or an accomplice was hiding.

The culprit or an accomplice was hidden underneath, or behind, some of the boxes in the cold storage, in a part that we didn't check. This doesn't count as a "hidden area" since we could have found them if we'd inspected it more thoroughly. This person, whether alive or dead, locked the doors in the kitchen from the inside, breaking the closed room.

Alternative theory: One of the servants quickly put the kitchen key inside the servant's room immediately after we entered and before we found it.

Searching both the oven and the cabinets would have led to us finding Ozaki! If we had searched either one, we would have found it empty, but not if we had searched both!

The body in the room is not dead! It really was Ozaki and he really was still alive! He locked the door from the inside and then played dead using the blood from the pork and a lot of shallow wounds that looked deeper than they really were! Or his clothes had special slots through which a knife could slip without causing him damage, like a magician's dismembering trick!

Or the body in the room is neither Ozaki nor Kinzo, it was Genji! Genji was stabbed repeatedly by Ozaki, then Ozaki left the room and Genji locked the door from inside before dying! Or Genji committed suicide after locking the door, for some reason that didn't involve being Ozaki's accomplice!

Ozaki is secretly classified as a servant, and one of the other servants is not! That way there are still only five master keys and Ozaki can still have used a master key to lock the door! That's why Kinzo invited him to the island, because he was actually some kind of elite personal assassin or something! Or maybe it's not Ozaki, but the man in red who is a servant, and Ozaki used his master key! That would explain why the man in red had a secret extra key to Kinzo's study!

Doors and/or windows can be opened and/or passed through while they are locked!!

Or the craziest of all: this closed room was set up before the groups converged in the boiler room! Ozaki separated from his group while the four of us were split up, and set up the closed room at that time! Therefore he could have taken a master key from one of the servants and returned it at some point without violating the previous red statement!

Can you say the line you stated earlier, 'An unknown opening refers to any passage undiscovered by the detectives' in red? By the way, you have defined a hidden passage as an unknown opening, but then defined an unknown opening as a passage, which makes for a circular definition. Can you confirm specifically that an 'opening' or 'passage' refers to anything that allows entry of an object into a room, regardless of whether it is a door, a window, a hole, a gap, a trapdoor, etc?
>> No. 10548 edit
If you had searched both the cabinet and the oven you would have yielded the same results.
The body you found in the room was dead. The knifes clearly stabbed into the body and would have killed any human.
This is a homicide. Genji did not lock any window or door from the inside. The body was in fact Genji dressed up in Ozaki’s clothing.
The only servants in this game are Gohda, Kanon, Shannon, Kumasawa, Genji. Ozaki is not a servant.
When the doors and windows are shut and closed there is no way into or out of the room for a human.
The closed room was set up after the convergence in the boiler room.
An unknown opening refers to any passage undiscovered by the detectives.
Opening and passage both refer to any opening large enough to fit a key into the room. Excluding when one of the doors or windows is opened none of these exist.

Ozaki was hiding in the cabinets or the oven initially, but then stealthily left the room while everyone was distracted by the body. Therefore if we had checked the cabinets or oven after that, we would have found them empty, but that does not mean that nobody was ever inside them.

Ozaki was not hiding in the cabinets or oven; he was just standing very near the door, pressed against the wall so that nobody would notice him unless they happened to look in that direction. Then, as everyone rushed towards the body, Ozaki quickly sneaked out through the door.

In short, it would be appreciated if you could deny that someone was inside the room at the time that we unlocked the door, if possible.

I just find it a little suspicious that you keep shying away from saying it outright, but fair enough. I'll proceed under the assumption that nobody is hiding.

I'll have to do some brainstorming before I can come up with any more theories, though.
>> No. 10567 edit
In fighting there is such a thing as "pressing the issue." When your opponent is on the defensive, especially when you have them on the run, you need to take the advantage and push forward. It seems like Ozaki, here, might barely be avoiding defeat. A graze here, a glancing blow there, you need to utilize this advantage. If he's dancing around the issue, not giving you a straight answer, it might be because he can't give you a straight answer.

Ha. I think I've got it.

You did indeed hide somewhere in the kitchen, and then leave while we were distracted by the body.

But it doesn't matter whether that location was a place that we had checked before or not.

Because obviously, by the time we had investigated, you had already left.

You hid in a location that we did investigate.

And that location is...

I don't think that's impossible, considering that everyone would have been so distracted by the body that they'd be forgiven for missing someone slip past. Especially since you could have been wearing anything at that time; perhaps you wore a servant's uniform or something so that you'd be mistaken for one of the group at a glance.

Either way, I don't feel the need to come up with anything else unless you can actually deny that you did leave through the main door.

A culprit, different from Ozaki, entered the study using the 3rd key in his possession and killed everyone in it. Afterwards, either he vanished, or if he was among the known persons, he killed himself or faked his death to make it look like everyone had been killed by someone else.

Wait, I will not let go of this so easily.

Because of the red, it seems like the accomplice fact is completely irrelevant.

I want you to confirm in red that the walk-in cooler is considered part of the kitchen, and as such that any general red about the kitchen also concerns the walk-in cooler, especially this one :

The only area you didn't investigate that a human could have hidden in was the oven or cabinets; If you had searched either you would have found them to be empty.

Confirm that there is only one unique entry and exit from the walk-in cooler, such as it would be impossible for a passage we wouldn't know about to exit, but not something that lead to the outside ( the rest of the mansion ) like the red concerning hidden passages define, but rather only an enclosed place that is neither considered part of the outside nor considered part of the kitchen, so that neither the red defining the hidden passages and the hiding places could apply to it.

Mhh. I'd have assumed it was something at the dinner table in any case. Is it considered poison if it wasn't supposed to kill them ? I won't bother making a blue about this, I hope you will confirm that it wasn't necessary.

Any way, if it wasn't food it might have been something in their drinks.

Or maybe did the culprit put something in their room that'd make them sick.

Or simply he raised the temperature of the mansion from the boiler to make people unaccustomed to heat or some bullshit like that, whatever you caught my drift.

Oh, okay, or this works.

The culprit could have just gone nuts with a gun and killed everyone. In that enclosed space it could be possible to kill all of them before they had a chance to fight back, or even if some of them did escape the study, they could have been pursued and killed, and then their corpses would have been dragged back into the study.

Alternatively, the group split up at some point, making it easier for the culprit to pick them off.

In any case this isn't 100% my game after all.
I just helped him brainstorm, took his ideas and made them work. I basically made sure there was clues for the howdunits and a few others things. After that I Tten took what was left and made my own closed room.
Actually when I say it like that I guess this game is a collaboration.

Seems Rudolf is not here so I'll respond for you.

That is correct. A makeshift explosive was used.
Apparently a "Meta-Bomb" that Meta used in the original second game. It was either some sort of alcohol mixture with metal fragments inside, or the barrel of a gun being sealed off and bursting via explosion. Rudolf and I have conflicting memories however it was something like that.

Anyway apparently theory time is over. So we'll have to wait for Rudolf.

You rush off toward the courtyard. The heat within the house has risen noticeably. The heat must be coming from the fire, which is slowly encroaching into the mansion. Past Archer once more, down the hall, toward the courtyard.

The door to the courtyard has been propped open, most likely by whoever is out here. You see a great deal of things piled up. Boxes, which appear to have had their contents emptied. Peering into the darkness from the doorway makes it hard to distinguish exactly what is going on, but you do notice a figure moving about. You cannot tell who it is from this distance, but you can tell they are working on something.... looks like they're laying the empty boxes' former contents along the walls inside the courtyard.

The walls look like they're lined with some sort of odd resin material. It's very darkly colored and appears very viscous.

The silhouette of the person moving about reveals itself more exactly as you get closer. That is, it appears to be that of a man, a very large man at that.

He looks back and notices you. His eyes, being much more adjusted to the light than yours, allow him to recognize you. "Ah, I see. So Dr. Ozaki failed to kill you all. I imagine you've solved the epitaph for me, at least?" This voice... it's the chef.

You come to the clearing the find the beach. No fire: good. You rush onto the docks and sit down. Success.

One thing I am still wondering about this game, though; I forgot to ask in the stream, but what was the final solution to that closed room in the kitchen? Did Ozaki actually sneak past everyone around the main entrance, or what?

Ah, right, I forgot to ask that too.

You may think it's a bit cheap but...
I was in one of the boxes, underneath the all food that was packed to the brim which Squitcher saw. Think of it like a false bottom. I then waited until you all left the room.

Might as well call it Showmanship of the Sorcerer of Steel

Huh? Wait, wouldn't that count as a 'hidden area'?
>> No. 10798 edit
You searched the box. It counts as an area you already discovered/investigated but did not find me in, as the food does not create a second place to hide but merely stops you from seeing me.

Since when is the inside of a box hidden? Hiding under an object or set of objects is different from a hidden area.

Being under a blanket on a bed means you're hidden, but nobody would say the area under the blanket is a hidden area.

Although if he said nobody was "hiding" that'd be an issue, I forget.

Oh, right. I got misled by the "false bottom" part, I think.

If I was going to nitpick, though...I'd still say there's an issue with "The only area you didn't investigate that a human could have hidden in was the oven or cabinets". Shouldn't the bottom of the box count as an area that we didn't investigate? I guess it depends on the definition of an area.
>> No. 10803 edit
Yeah, the box as a whole counted as one area and the food was just obstructing Squitcher's view. That why I conceded once you said the cooler, because it was clear that you were thinking like that.
