First Thread

The clock struck twelve.

The family conference was becoming tiresome. Argument after argument got everyone nowhere at all, and the adults just ended up going in circles. For the last few minutes, Krauss had stayed silent. Then, without warning, he stood up. "Just what is it that we are all so worried about?" He smiled at the other adults, who looked at him like they had no idea what he was talking about. "What do you think, Rosa? There's nothing to be scared of, right?"

Rosa looked neverous. "Krauss nii-san...this predicament is very bad for us. You understand that, right?"

Krauss only smiled more widely. "What predicament is it that you're talking about? I don't see anything worth being worried about." Rosa looked confused for another moment, then she snapped to a realization. "That's right. There's nothing to worry about. Because we never received any letter at all." Krauss walked over to the envelope that the family had received earlier.

"It's hard to believe that just a small piece of paper had us all shivering in our boots. How foolish." Krauss reached into his pocket for a moment, then drew something out. It appeared to be a lighter.

"Krauss-san!" Eva said. "What are you doing?"

"I'm not doing anything, Eva. Right now we are all in the middle of a civil discussion." Krauss flicked his lighter. A flame came forth. "Our discussion will end soon, and we'll all forget about this Beatrice person once and for all. Better yet, she was never hear at all." Krauss brought the envelope with all of the papers to the flame. It burnt quickly. The papers fell to the floor and Krauss stamped the flames out with his boot.

"Hold on," Rudolph said. "What if one of the servants knows about it?"

"If they knew about it, do you honestly think they would still be working like dogs? No, of course not. Unless a witch comes down and tells them for herself, they'll never be any wiser. And of course, that's impossible." Krauss smiled. "This family conference will resume in the morning. I hope you all support my decision."

"I support you, dear," Natsuhi said. Nobody else said anything, either. With the epitaph solved, they agreed that this was the most effective solution. The only thing that was left was to plan how the money would be divided among the siblings.

"Good. Goodnight, everyone. Sweet dreams."

(I'm not done yet. I'm writing in segments. I'll let you know when Amy wakes up.)

The family conference may have been over for the night, but the day's most important event was just about to start for Rudolph. He sighed. He and Kyrie were just about to leave their guest room in the mansion. Kyrie had been trying to guess what he could possibly have to say, but she was surprisingly wrong in her guesses.

"At the very least, it should be able to wait until morning, right?"

"Nah. I've been putting this off for way too long. It's time I finally stopped running away from my past and faced it like a man. The sooner the better."

Kyrie thought his wording was very odd, but she said nothing. Rudolph opened the door to their room, and yelled.


Rudolph paused. "Oh, Kumasawa-san. You scared me."

Kumasawa chuckled. "Ohoho, I was just going to knock and see if their was anything you needed. I'm sorry for troubling you."

"Thanks, but we're fine. We were just about to head over to the guest house. Don't worry about umbrellas, we have our own." Rudolph smiled and motioned to the umbrellas that he was holding. "But thanks anyways."

Rudolph turned around towards Kyrie. "Hey, while she's here, is there anything that you think you—"

"Rudolph, watch out!" Kyrie ran forwards and tackled Rudolph to the ground. It was just in time. Just above them, a blue sword flew past. It had the words 'Smothered Mate' written on the side.

...Had Kumasawa just tried to attack him when his back was turned...?

He looked up from his position on the ground. Kumasawa was gone. In her place, there was some woman with straight gray hair and a calm demeanor. She spoke: "You skillfully avoided my attack this once. I am the witch Virgillia, I work under the Golden Witch, Beatrice."

Kyrie stood up. Of course, she knew better than to take this witch on directly. Rudolph was still on the ground, too stunned to do anything except for watch the scene play out in front of him. There was no way witches could exist, right?

Kyrie backed herself against a wall. There were multiple suitcases around her. "Our host doesn't even want to meet us herself? That's bad manners for a witch, isn't it?"

Virgillia smiled. "Beatrice-sama is quite occupied enough without having to work on something as trivial as the first twilight. All of the family is seperated, so no alibies can be confirmed. It's quite simple."

Kyrie fell on her knees and opened a suitcase. She had no idea what this woman was talking about, but she knew they could get out of this predicament if only she could stall her for a little bit longer...! "The first twilight? Does that have to do with father's epitaph?"
"You are wise, Kyrie-san. I have been instructed to sacrifice six victims in order to revive Beatrice-sama to her full power. I hope that you don't intend on pulling out a pocket knife or something else, by the way. Such simple toys mean nothing to a witch with as much power as Beatrice and I."

Suddenly, Rudolph snapped out of his trance and looked back towards Kyrie. It was as if he finally realized what she was trying to accomplish. Virgillia's smile dissappeared. She didn't like the implications of what was happening.

"No matter. I am to end this show quickly, due to Beatrice-sama's demands. I hope you understand." Several beams of light formed around Virgillia. It looked like she was preparing for another attack.

However, Kyrie didn't give her enough time to do so. She pulled out a large revolver from the suitcase, removed the safety, and pointed the barrel at Virgillia and pulled. Virgillia did not expect such a move. Then again, it made perfect sense. Rudolf was a western fanatic just like father. It was plausible that he brought the gun over to get on Father's good side and eventually settle the matters of the inheritance among them.

That wasn't what the gun was being used for now, though. The gun was used as a method of murder. Kyrie shot Virgillia straight through the head. The magic around her instantly dissappeared. Virgillia never even had a chance to speak. She fell to the floor, knowing that she had failed her master. Her body started glowing, and changed back to the form of Kumasawa.

Suddenly, Rudolph stood up. Tears were forming at his eyes. "K-kumasawa-san!" He ran up to her. "Oh god. We killed her. We killed Kumasawa. What have we done?" Rudolph started crying. It seemed that, throughout his years on Rokkenjima, he had kept a soft spot inside of him for the old maid.

Kyrie walked up to the corpse. "Don't worry, we didn't kill Kumasawa."

"The corpse is right there!"

"Still. I'm telling you, we didn't kill Kumasawa." Kyrie was as calm and composed as ever. Rudolf stopped crying and stood up.

He had enough faith in his wife. If she said they didn't kill Kumasawa, then she was right. Still, he wasn't happy about her death. "You were a good woman. You always told the best stories, too. It stinks that you never even got a last request. We'll make sure to give you a proper burial."

Kyrie looked at Rudolf. "This might be bad. I'm worried about Battler and the other children. If this strange woman appeared, then who knows who else may have shown themselves over there?"

Rudolf agreed, and the two rushed to the guest house without umbrellas. They didn't meet anyone on the way there. The rain soaked them head to toe.

When they arrived, Rudolf tried the door. However, it would not open no matter what he did. He turned to Kyrie. "It's locked!"

Kyrie closed her eyes. "Then that means there's only one way to get ourselves inside."

"What do you mean?"


A sudden gust of wind blew at them at that moment, and the two turned to golden butterflies and slipped through the cracks in the door.

When they formed inside, Rudolf saw that nobody was inside. He had no idea what was going on anymore, He just knew that he wanted Battler to be safe. He raced towards the steps...when he suddenly noticed the form of a small girl. He stooped dead in his tracks.

"...Greetings. This is the first time we have met, I believe. I am the witch of Miracles, Bernkast—" Before she could finish, Rudolf raised the pistol he took from Kyrie and pulled the trigger. But there was no effect. Somehow, the bullet missing, even though he shot from point blank! It truly was...a miracle.

"How rude," Bernkastel smiled, laughed, and consumed the whole room in a blue light, creating a loud BANG in the process. "Now, I wonder how I can have fun with you two...It's my turn to be the endless torturer, Beatrice!"

Battler waited for the longest time at the guest house, waiting for his father and Kyrie-san to show up to talk to him about whatever it was that they wanted to say. However, they just weren't showing up. He had almost dozed off several times.

"I guess that old bastard forgot about me after all. It must not have been important, then." Battler grabbed his master key then went back up the stairs to the 'Detective's Room' as Erika called it. As she had said, the door was locked from the inside. Battler shrugged, and used his key to unlock the door...

When suddenly a huge bang erupted from downstairs.

A minute passed, and Battler decided that the crash had nothing to do with him. She shrugged once more, opened the door, then stepped inside. The room was pitch black. He closed the door, locked it from the inside, then placed his master key on a table.

He stumbled over to his bed. 'I wonder what dad and Kyrie-san are doing right now. Oh well. It's none of my concern.'

A golden Butterfly appears in the Detective's Room. The butterfly quickly turns into a human shape with white hair. The girl looks around the room sadly. "There is nothing I can do on this Rokkenjima. I have no part to play. But just like always, Battler will not believe in me. No matter what, he will not remember...I have given up on him. I am sorry."

Beatrice looked out of the window.

"Oh, I am one, yet I am many. I have no desire to play on this game board. I am but a piece with no moves available. I can only wish both sides the best of luck...and you too, Ushiromiya Battler."

The woman quickly dissappeared as if she was never there at all.


Amy-san stirs in her bed. Her head hurts like crazy. The area around her is pitch black.

Rooks advance. Your move, Rosa.

File 12972170987.png - (366.79KB , 640x480 , 1283700728.png )
Would you hate me if I said the light switch didn't work? Nah, just kidding.

You get up from bed. Your head hurts, and you stumble to the light switch and flick it on. The light blinds you for a few moments, and when you look around the room you see a terrible sight...!

There are six corpses inside of the room! The people are Rudolf, Kyrie, Kumasawa, Maria, Jessica, and George! The first three died from bullet wonds to their skulls, while the last three appear to have died from being beaten to death by a blunt object. Their bodies were bruised and some of their skin was torn up. Blood is spilled all over the floor. It is truly...a murder scene, worthy of the Golden Witch, Beatrice.

The light wakes up Battler and Erika almost instantly. Battler rubs his eyes, but when he sees the sight in front of him he literally jumps out of bed. Battler lets out a loud roar in the air. Then, he begins screaming: "Aaaaagh, what the hell?! George, Jessica! Who did this to you? Maria-chan, why? You're only nine years old, you have so much to live for! Dad, you old bastard! Why'd you have to get killed? You even brought Kyrie-san with you! And...Kumasawa? You weren't a bad person at all! Why? Why did all of you have to diiiieeeeee?! Battler lets another roar out into the room, then breaks out in tears.

Erika doesn't let Battler see, but she is smirking. It seems that she is more than ready to solve this mystery. She looks at you in the eyes and grins. It seems that she plans on challenging you.

Battler checks the corpse's pulses. "Dead...they're all dead...who the fuck could have done this?" Battler looks up at you. "What the hell happened? I locked the door from the inside last night! Who could have gotten in? Why did they all die? Someone, get Dr. Nanjo!" Battler continues weping over the deaths of his loved ones. Some blood is smeared on his clothes. But even though it's a gruesome scene, he doesn't look away.

He's too sad to be scared.

You look at the cousin's room window. It is still broken, and the seal remains.

The cousin's door is locked from the inside. Two master keys are on the inside of the room.

Every window you check is still broken and sealed.

You check the front door. It still appears broke. Oddly, it is now sealed from the inside using some kind of super glue along the cracks. You can't budge it.

Of course. You gave me a challenge by trying to defend the guest house, and I took it with open arms. Ready to accept magic?

You get Nanjo from his room. He asks you what is happening. He hears Battler's cries.
>> No. 378 edit
Nope; no magic. I have a few ideas as to how it was done. And a few likely suspects.

"Nanjo-sensei why are you still here in this room?"

Nanjo nervously nods, and follows you back to the cousin's room. When he sees the sight, his eyes widen. "Battler-san, step aside!" Nanjo rushes up to each victim and does a check.

He pauses. "I'm so sorry...they are dead. But, doesn't that mean they were murdered? Someone, call the main house. The family needs to know about this." When Nanjo examins Kumasawa's body, a tear drops from his eye as well. He quickly regains his composure.

Greeting, Uninvited Guests,

Welcome again to Rokkenjima. I hope you find your stay here pleasant yet intellectual. By now you have probably noticed the first six corpses of my sacrifice. Don't bother getting Nanjo, those corpses are long dead. Also, there is something very important that I urge you to remember:

This crime was done by magic.

You seem to fancy yourselves as detectives. Rather than trying to solve something that is impossible, you should be praising my name and begging me not to make you sacrifices. When the
typhoon passes, a boat will probably come. The police will come as well.

Even the seagulls that enliven the docks will return.

That's right, when the police come, they will resolve everything.

Even if you do nothing, when the seagulls cry, everything.

That is, if even one of them is left alive when the seagulls cry...

What is expected from you is neither a search for the culprit nor detective work.

When will you believe in me?

That is all that matters.

If you want to do some detective work, go ahead.

If you believe that there is an answer, go and continue to search.

This is eternal torture that will not end until you can believe in witches. The culprit is a witch. All alibis and tricks are magic. This is not a mystery, but fantasy!

I want to see you surrender and say that while crying bitter tears.

Dr. Nanjo spoke: "We're all going...to die?"
>> No. 392 edit
File 129730602560.png - (166.57KB , 578x480 , amy_akirea1.png )
"No don't worry Nanjo-sensei. This isn't magic by any means. It is a trick, and the culprit is a human. Erika and myself will find the culprit. We won't let another incident happen, but first we must get out of the guesthouse and go over to the main house."

I request the following information. A discrition of the windows lock before and after we broke them.
>> No. 393 edit
The windows were all locked when you broke them. They were unable to be opened when you broke them.

Suddenly, you notice a small slip of paper fall out of the envelope.
>> No. 394 edit
File 12973078419.png - (156.45KB , 572x480 , amy_waraia1.png )
Well that cuts off one of the things I thought of.

I'll pick up and read the slip of paper, though not out loud.
>> No. 395 edit
If you want to see real magic, go to the chapel.


>> No. 396 edit
I read the note aloud and convience everyone to head over to the chapel. We break a window on the first floor to leave the guesthouse, and head over to the chapel.
>> No. 397 edit
Erika suggests that she go over to the mansion and tell the family what happened while you investigate the chapel.
>> No. 398 edit
We head over to the main house then.
>> No. 399 edit
Battler stops. "Hold on, What if Beatrice is in the chapel? We're losing our chance to capture her! I say we split up."
>> No. 400 edit
Request: Can I be killed in this game?
>> No. 401 edit
There must be a detective, and they must detect. Amy cannot die due to another human's actions.
>> No. 402 edit
Alright then. I'll go with Battler to the chapel.

You and Battler arrive at the chapel. He looks at you.

"Amy-san, we need to be careful. This could be a trap set up by the culprit. Wait, isn't the door to the chapel always locked?"

You don't notice anything suspcious outside of the chapel. It is too dark to see inside.
>> No. 404 edit
"Battler-san don't worry, as long as well stay together and I go first you'll be fine."

I try the door is it locked?
>> No. 405 edit
The door is not locked. It opens without too much of a problem. Nothing appears out of place at the very entrance.
>> No. 406 edit
Alright I ask Battler to follow me inside. With him walking right behind me. However I ask him to face towards the door as we walk inside, so that no one can sneak up on us.
>> No. 407 edit
File 12973766932.jpg - (13.24KB , 500x281 , 1250699669073.jpg )
You two do so. As you enter, Battler closes the door behind him. The door slams shut, and battler sees words written in red paint on the door: HAPPY HALLOWEEN FOR MARIA.

A few seconds later, a small candy falls onto the ground. "W...where did that come from?" Another one falls. Then several at once, and soon it's raining candies in the chapel! They pelt your and Battler's heads like rocks. Each one stings like hell.

You and Battler look around, but it's too dark to tell if anyone's inside. What is happening here? Could it really be magic?!

And if they got into range where they could actually hit us, you would see them. If you're that scared of getting shot stand in the corner, where it isn't possible for them to hit you unless they use magic."

Nothing at all...


A figure appears in the meta-world. It is the witch of miracles, Bernkastel.

"Amy-san, do you remember when I said you had to shoot the person if you couldn't create an alternate theory? I'll start now. The Golden Witch Beatrice is the culprit. She made the candy appear with her magic.
Since it's not a murder, I'll use the red freely here to help a bit~."

"Bernkastel!" Ange yells. "This wasn't the dea-" Ange suddenly dissappears.[/b]


Without warning, a blue chain wraps itself around your body and hand. A gun materializes in your hand. Time completely freezes. The faded form of Beatrice is in front of you. If you do not make another theory, you will have to shoot this invisible being.

Good luck.

>> No. 436 edit
Not exactly. If you shoot incorrectly, I can repeat that that person wasn't the culprit in red, and you will be caught in an eternal logic error.

If you mean forcing one human to kill another, that won't work. The motive must be personal. Without a motive, somoene will not kill.

You and Battler start walking back the the main house.

"I don't get it," Battler says. "I just don't get it at all! First we get that murder in the guest house, then that crazy show with candy? I...don't want to think that the culprit is one of the 18, but how else could they have sealed the guest house door? Could they have used a secret passage?" Battler shakes his dead in frustration.

(Note that when Battler says 18, he says that because he naturally doesn't consider you two as viable culprits.)

"Battler-san, I don't know. I really don't know. I'm just as confused as you are? In fact I don't even remember what happened after I suddenly fell asleep."

Battler is silent. You two reach the main house, then go inside the front doors.

"Ahh, hello Battler-san, Amy-san." Erika is there. "I told everyone about the unfortunate incident, and they were quite upset, so they all went to their rooms. Don't worry. using my sensetive hearing, I confirmed that each survivor went to their respective rooms, and that there is no more than two people in any rooms. Furthermore, I sealed all of the room's windows."
>> No. 445 edit
I'll whisper to Erika. "What are you trying to do, tempt the culprit by going setting up groups of two? Anyway what are the list, and where are the rooms."
>> No. 447 edit
"Of course. Using my method, we should be able to find the culprit easily once he makes his move. All of the rooms the survivors went in are on the second floor. With all of us parolling, nobody should be able to leave from their doors without us noticing."
>> No. 448 edit
"Erika, did you seal the windows before the people went inside. Or did you have them go inside and then went around sealing the windows?"

To reiterate:


Everyone alive(with the exception of you, Battler, Erika, and Kinzo) are all on the second floor inside their rooms

You knock on one of the doors. Eva and Hideyoshi are inside the room. Eva only cracks the door. The chain is set.

"Ah, Furudo-san... It's terrible, Battler told us six people were murdered...Even, even..." Sobs came from Eva. It was apparent she had been crying for some time. "The phone lines are out. Everyone insisted on splitting up until we found our bearings." Eva figures that even if you are the culprit, you are no threat. "Would you like to come inside? It's not safe out there."

"Eva-san, Hideyoshi-san. Did you notice anything strange last night? I want to find the culprit who did such an awful thing and put them to justice. I'm sure you do as well, for what they did."

Eva took a moment to pause, then she started sobbing. "What difference does it make?! George...my George is dead!"

She continued to sob while Hideyoshi comforted her.

"We siblings all agreed that the order to distribute the gold among the servants should be ignored. Father wasn't mentally stable at the time of writing that letter, but we have no way of proving that to the courts. We thought it would be fine if no one were to know about it...

Then, they go knock on Eva and Hideyoshi's door. One Eva opens the door, they explain the situtation to them, about Kanon's hat and the letter. Then they lead them back to where Shannon and Nanjo were, and wait for you.

As for who did it, I'm afraid I don't have the faintest idea."

"It couldn't be the which in the portrait, could it?" Gohda asked.

"In any case, the phone lines are down, and our radio doesn't seem to be working, so we couldn't contact the police. I can't imagine why Kanon-san would be kidnapped, either. I suspect that he had some kind of information that the ulprit didn't want anyone to know about."

I feel like the servants are the most suspicious with their master keys, but I think the other siblings might be just as likely. For example...what if one of the six was actually faking their death? I know that's awful to think about, but still.

I think money would be the primary motive. Now that we know where the gold is hidden, someone may have want to be greedy enough to get all of it. Although I don't understand. There should have been enough for everyone.

I'm not sure how it could have been done. I didn't even get to hear the cause of death. I wonder...

I had no idea Kanon-kun was kidnapped. Although, that sounds pretty unlikely to me. What if he's the culprit, and he's watching us from the shadows, ready to strike?

She starts to leave, then stopped. "I'm sorry. I was supposed to be paired up with Kanon-kun, but I didn't trust him. If he's truly dead...then this is another sin that is mine to carry." She leaves the room.

You walk inside the room, and you see a terrifying sight on the floor! Both Krauss and his wife, Natushi, have blood dripping from their face and necks! Next to them, you see a large, sturdy vase covered in blood. This was...probably the murder weapon. You see a shelf nearby where someone could have grabbed it from.

Both of their faces are only have crushed, so you can clearly tell who the faces belong to. There's no mistaking that this is really Krauss and Natsuhi. In addition, they both appear to have slices of on their necks, with thick, dark blood running from them. The witch was probably torturing them for quite some time. It is a truly gruesome murder scene.

The room is a complete reck. Even though apparently nobody heard anything, it appears that furniture was knocked over, drawers were opened and searched, with clothes discarded everywhere. A make-up kit and various clothes lay discarded on the bed.

On Kruass's chest, with small drops of blood, there is an envelope. You can practically feel a sneer coming from it.

Dear those that survive,

Have you been enjoying my ceremony? Soon, everything will come to an end. Spend your last hours as you please. Whether you are cooped up in a room or enjoying yourself around the mansion, my ceremony will complete.

Enclosed in this envelope are two keys. One is Kanon's. You should take it back, it belongs to you to begin with. The other is a key to Kinzo's study. In there are four winchester rifles. Do with them what you please.

It appears that the culprit is taunting you, daring you to make whatever moves you want.

"Wait," Battler says. "I have a master key, and so does Erika. And this letter gives us another one. Genji, how many master keys are there?"

"Five," He says. "I have one in my possesion." He pulls it out and shows it.

"I-I have one as well," Gohda says, and pulls out his own.

"...Wait, where is Shannon?"

"We told her to go get everyone some tea," Eva says. "We thought it might calm our nerves."

Battler uses the key to open the door...

Shannon is laying on the floor of the kitchen. There appears to be a large wound at her chest area, as well as a cut running along her neck. Thick, dark blood is running down it!

There is an ice-pick like object laying next to her.

"Shannon-chan!" Battler runs up to her. "Nanjo, You have to do something!"

"I-I'll try." He shoos batter away and starts examining Shannon, starting with her neck wound.

Meanwhile, you spot a syringe on the floor.

The syringe is labelled "propofol". You look up at the ceiling. There are red words, written in some kind of red paint:

Kanon is dead.

You don't find anything of interest. Dr. Nanjo spends a few more minutes with his inspection, but he finally stands up and sighs.

"I'm sorry. In a hospital, I might have saved her. But there was nothing I could do..."

Erika smiles. "There is a bright side to all of this."

"A bright side?" Eva asks. "What could possibly be the bright side?"

"With this murder, I know who the culprit is."

"Hehe, certainly. The culprit..." She turned to the group. "Is YOU, Ushiromiya Battler!


In the trial room, Battler stood as the defendant. In the prosecutor's corner stood Erika, with Bernkastel at her side.

"Bernkastel!" Ange yelled from the sidelines. "What are you doing? This wasn't the deal!"

"The deal was that we find the killer of Rokkenjima. That's exactly what I intend to do."

"You lia-" Some goats put their hands over Ange's mouth and dragged her away.

"Well," Bernkastel looks at you. "You know the rules, and you know the evidence. Let me ask before Erika gives her theory. Which side will you stand on?"

"Hmph. Very well, if the detective demands it."

The goats allow Ange to go back to the trial. She stands next to you. "I hope you know what you're doing."

"Ladies and Goats," Erika says. "I will now reveal the truth of this game board, and show that the culprit is none other than the one, the only, Ushiromiya Battler! I will even give evidence to back my theories."

Battler stood there like a corpse, unable to defend himself.

"First twilight! Last night, before going to the guest house, Rudolf told Battler he had something important to tell him. Battler went downstairs, saying he would wait for them. He even broke down the door so that they could enter. Then, whatever he told Battler, it caused him to get angry--angry enough to kill in the heat of the moment! He disarmed Rudolf and used his gun to kill them.Then he killed Kumasawa, who followed Kyrie and Rudolf to spy on them. After that, he discarded the gun and felt ashamed of what he did. But then, maybe the door was open or maybe one of the cousin's was going to the bathroom, but they heard what he was doing. They came downstairs, and Battler knew he had to kill them as well! So he beat them to death with a blunt object. After that, he glued the door, then brought the corpses to his room until morning. After all, he was the only one but us sleeping in that room! Only he could do it!

Chapel mystery! Battler threw the candy at you!

Second twilight! Battler had a master key. Futhermore, when you were talking to Eva about the tape seals, Battler was out of our sight! He took this oppurtunity to kill Natsuhi and Krauss

Kanon's kidnapping and the 4th twilight! Battler was also out of our sight when we were talking to Dr. Nanjo! He took this oppurtunity to kill Kanon and stick him somewhere.

5th twilight! Battler left the parlor saying he was worried about you. But in reality, he followed Shannon to the kitchen, where he killed her and locked the door! Then, he went to where you were and pretended you were his destination all along!

He did this all to cover up the fact that he killed his parents in a blind fit of rage!

This level of reasoning is possible for Furudo Erika. What do you think, everyone?"

Anyone could have preformed the first twilight. Not just Battler. They could have cut a hole in the roof and dropped the bodies in our room. And used another hole to enter and exit the cousins room.

The culprit could have glued the candy to the ceiling. After X amount of the time the glue wore off and the candy fell on our heads.

While yes Battler was out of our sight when we were talking with Eva about tape seals. We were still in the hallway. Eva only cracked open the door and did not let us inside. So while Battler could have sneaked away during that time. He couldn't have committed the crime and left the room in such a mess during that tiny period of time.

Anyone could have kidnapped Kanon. Gohda or Genji for example.

Someone borrowed Genji's or Gohda's key and used it to lock the kitchen.

"Oh? Then why don't we go to the guest house right now and look for your 'holes' to confirm if they exist or not?"

"I'll save you the time. This doesn't count as cheating, since you could find out for yourself easily. The only entrance to the detective's are the single door and single window."

"Thank you my master. I'll give you the chapel mystery due to lack of evidence. However. I revise my theory so that Battler killed Krauss and Narsuhi while you were talking to Nanjo. if he did this quickly enough, he could have hid Kanon's body as well.

Who could have borrowed Gohda's key? After we went in the parlor and until you arrived, the only two that exited were Shannon and Battler.."

The culprit could have removed the whole window in the cousin's room and the detective's room. And then when they put the window back on the tape became resealed or never broke at all.

Anyone could have borrowed kidnapped Kanon and then used his master key to kill Natsuhi and Krauss when Battler and I were still at the chapel.

One of the people I talked to later could have instead of going straight to the parlor gone to the kitchen where they killed Shannon.

You found the envelope in Krauss and Natsuhi's room. hat envelope had Kanon's key in it. The door was locked before you went inside. Your theory about them using Kanon's key fails.

Because she wasn't game master, Erika couldn't deny that there were only five master keys, and she doubted that Bernkastel would do it for her. "I...I resign my theory."
