This roleplay is themed after the fandoms Umineko No Naku Koro Ni/When They Cry 3 & 4, Corpse Party (AU), and Touhou Project. It is not required to have any prior knowledge on the stated fandoms or the past Murder Games as well. ~Premise~ Why hello there~! If you're reading this exact letter at this exact moment, it means that you've been specifically chosen to take part in a wonderful Gameboard event at the Metaworld. You need not to prepare oh so heavily for the event. The prize for winning the Gameboard event? I'm willing to part with a good fortune of my gold, that is one prize. Then there's my power to grant you a single rule-defying wish. That's another prize. Just think of anything that you desire out of me, and it will be your prize. I'll tell more of this event if you do eventually choose to participate, so be sure to send this envelope back with the confirmation. -The Golden Witch Beatrice This letter came from nowhere, and no matter what you did during your day-to-day routine, it would always return into your sight... waiting for you to give into this phony letter. You had no knowledge to what this event was. You had no knowledge on how this letter wouldn't exactly be disposed of so easily. You had no knowledge as to who the "Golden Witch Beatrice" was. And certainly you had no knowledge as to why you were chosen for the event at all. Time flies, and the constant reminder of this game keeps on clawing at you... and thus, you decide to give in to it's demands. Regardless if you knew what you were doing with the letter, a simple reply note you place onto the envelope's letter... everything went black around you. Then... then the Witch's Game began. ~Truth System~ Stemming from the Uminekoverse, there is a mechanic known as the Truth System. For this roleplay, these are the known Truths to be used, and when used by a player, be sure to also bold and underline your Truth with the appropriate color so it is easy to see (because of some people using colored text in their posts). All Truths that can used by players are recommended to be used during the investigation/voting sessions. The Golden Truth A Truth reserved only for the Gamemaster or someone that knows the full brunt of the Game itself. This will only be used by Beatrice. The Red Truth A Truth that shows the absolute truth, and does not lie. This will only be used by Beatrice in order to highlight key evidence and clues to each murder. The Blue Truth A Truth that shows the possibility of a situation, and if true or confirmed, it will gain the effects of a Red Truth. This can be used by anybody and has no limit usage. The Purple Declaration A Declaration that shows the absolute truth, and does not lie... when you are an innocent. The Maestro and the Traitor can lie using the Purple Declaration. This can be used by anybody, but it can only be used once per round. ~Character Sheet~ Appearance: Name: Age: Gender: Canon: Abilities/Attributes: Personality: Short Bio: 1. Iwaku rules still apply here. We are in Iwaku, after all. 2. Again, you do not have to know the prior canon of the Murder Series, Umineko, Corpse Party, and Touhou Project to understand everything. All are welcomed to participate. 3. There will be a limit on both duos and OCs. 10 duos and 10 OCs only. However, I might extend the limits if there is a high demand for either one or both. 4. The GM (myself) and the co-GMs (@Bomb & @The Silver Paladin) will be working tons here. Be sure to tag any one of us depending on the location of each round. 5. Character powers will vary throughout the event. Early on, all character powers are nullified, and as the event progresses, character powers will be slowly coming back. Near the end, everyone will be at full power. This is to prevent any colossal feats being done in the simple settings in the very beginning. The same goes towards godmodding and metagaming, as those both are not allowed in any form. However, OOC voting is allowed due to the nature of the hidden traitor and the Maestro. 6. With this being a big event, it's understandable if you can't keep track due to IRL or anything else that comes your way. The required minimum to keep up with an event like this is to find a group of people to be your posting partners, use the tagging system frequently, post at least once each round, and also vote at least once each round. That way, I can tell you still want in, and also telling me that I shouldn't kill off your character due to inactivity. 7. All special roles, besides the Survivor/Guest role, will have PMs to discuss the behind-the-scenes actions, such as the Maestro choosing the round's traitor, the traitor choosing who to kill for the found, and the detectives investigating someone to find either the round traitor or the Maestro. To keep the essence of a "mystery" in this event, you MUST keep your roles a secret. 8. Reserves during the sign-ups are first come first serve. There will be 40 open character slots, but of course, I will extend the slots if there is high demand. After the third round's mid-round update, I will close the sign-ups for any new participants.

Their goal is to take out the Maestro and the traitor for each round. They do this through the matter of voting up a single person. The results of the vote can either help or diminish their Karma against the entity Beatrice. If they successfully vote up either the traitor or the Maestro, the guests get one positive Karma point. If they vote up an innocent, the entity Beatrice receives the point. The Karma system does not widely effect anything else but the outcome of the final round before the epilogue. So it all depends if the guests or Beatrice get the most Karma points throughout the event. Traitors: Traitors aren't a permanent role throughout the game like in other Murder Games. One traitor is chosen for each round by the Maestro. Once the round is over (by either avoiding execution or getting executed), the traitor role is passed onto another. The chosen traitor is free to kill one person, even the Maestro. If the chosen traitor happens to kill the current Maestro, they will be able to become the next Maestro. Maestro: Only one person will get this role, and they will have the power to choose who will be the traitor for each round. If they are found out and executed, then Beatrice (or otherwise me, the GM) will continue this role. If the Maestro lives throughout the game, they will have the choice of determining the fates of select survivors or all survivors left. If killed by a traitor that they had chosen, the Maestro is passed on from the original and into the current traitor of that round. The Maestro is unable to make themself a traitor. In the case of the Maestro choosing one of the three detectives, the selected detective will commit suicide instead. Because of this, the detective will leave behind a hint that will point towards the Maestro's identity. Don't worry if finding out the Maestro seems impossible as they will not do any direct killing. There will be clues throughout each round that may hint towards the Maestro in some way or the other. Detectives: There will be 3 detectives, or otherwise known as this Murder Game's group of agents. They will have chances to investigate two individuals in order to rat out the current Traitor and the Maestro. Their results will be publicly announced whether or not they guessed correctly, but it will not state if they found the traitor and/or the Maestro. If one of them is, by chance, chosen by the Maestro to become a traitor, they will commit suicide instead. A hint towards the Maestro's identity will be left behind by the dead detective. "Because magic exists for people who believe. Even if I don't. If someone believed, then magic will exist in the human world." -Name- Ange Ushiromiya -Age- 18 -Gender- Female -Canon- Umineko No Naku Koro Ni -Abilities/Attributes- Ange is otherwise known as the last Beatrice, ANGE-Beatrice, and has both the qualities of an Endless Witch and her own specific title of Witch of Resurrection. Due to her status as a Witch, Ange has both the ability to use the Red Truth and the Blue Truth. -Personality- After the Rokkenjima Serial Murders Incident, Ange's innocence was shattered, and she grew up to be a cold, cynical, and calm personality. Her loneliness due to her family besides Eva being dead makes her unable to form connections with others well, and has a very unhealthy desire to figure out what exactly happened to her family, the truth of the murders. Even with the abilities of a Witch, she is still wary on what is the truth and what is the fantasy. -Short Bio- On the year of 1998, Ange sought out to figure out the truth towards the Rokkenjima Serial Murders Incident, segmenting into the Metaworld as ANGE-Beatrice. She took part of the 8th game within the Metaworld's Gameboard, but then realizing that she didn't exactly need to find the truth to be a peace with the deaths of her family. Segmenting back into the real world (following the Magic / True Ending), Ange hands over the title of the Ushiromiya head and fortune to Okonogi, and goes off to restart her life as an author pennamed "Yukari Kotobuki." However, some time after this, she felt something amiss, and finds herself a part of the Witch's Game again.
