Umineko ~ When Seagulls Cry

Post by Durn on Tue Dec 15, 2009 6:59 pm

Plot~

About 15 years have passed since the infamous Rokkenjima Mass Murder Case...
... A phenomenon managing to shock all ends of the world...
... There are no survivors.


There is no evidence of a culprit to pin it on...
... From what the sources have gathered...
... it seems a witch is responsible.

Yet as time passed...
... People began to forget about the incident as if it had never happened...


The year was 1986, October 4th and 5th. A tragic event had unfolded on a small island owned by the Ushiromiyas. The Ushiromiya family has been cursed with a fate so cruel, that it couldn't be explained in just words. The event is unexplainable, and has baffled many researchers throughout the years. The event was a massacre, but it wasn't just a usual massacre, it was much more severe. Thirteen were murdered as sacrifices; five were deemed missing. The murders were almost illogical, people were killed in locked rooms, keys still in the pockets of the victims. Doors and windows locked, all of it. There is no way a human could kill them all...

Was it a witch, or a human? Nobody knows.

The Ushiromiya family is a wealthy family consisting of thirteen members, all of which were invited to Rokkenjima, the family head's private island. A large mansion resides upon the island, complete with a guest house, dining hall, servant's quarters, and all. Yearly, the parents and adults of the Ushiromiya family gather to discuss what has happened over the previous year, yet the year of 1986, a different event occurred. The Ushiromiya head was near death, and was scheduled to die in 3 months. The adults and parents of the family decided to meet to discuss how the head's great fortune would be split.

Once the family gathers, the head begins a fatal game of life, death, and supernatural beings. People begin to die in ominous ways. Ways that almost no single human could achieve. The head wishes to revive his lost lover, Beatrice, and the only way to do so, is to sacrifice the lives of his family members.

The epitaph in the foyer of the mansion explains the method in which the game of sacrificing shall occur:

At the first twilight, you shall offer up the six chosen by the key
At the second twilight, the remaining shall tear apart those who are close
At the third twilight, the remaining shall praise my honorable name on high
At the fourth twilight, gouge the head and kill
At the fifth twilight, gouge the chest and kill
At the sixth twilight, gouge the stomach and kill
At the seventh twilight, gouge the knee and kill
At the eighth twilight, gouge the leg and kill
At the ninth twilight, the witch shall be revived, and none shall be left alive
At the tenth twilight, you will all reach the Golden Land

You, an unfortunate member of the Ushiromiya family, are trapped on the island due to a typhoon. People begin to mysteriously die, it is your job to stop the killer before it's too late.

Is the killer a human... Or witch?

Rules - It's a lot to read, but it's all important
  • Please read the entire plot, things will make much more sense. If you have any questions about the plot, which is probably likely, please don't hesitate to ask me or Zeri through PM.
  • Having more than one character is highly recommended. In fact, two to three is basically required. It wouldn't be fun having your only character killed off, now would it?
  • Place "One-Winged Eagle" at the end of your last application so I know that you read the rules.
  • PM THE APPLICATIONS TO ME.
  • There will be 18 total characters. Please have more than 1 character to fill these slots quicker.
  • If your character dies, do not fret. They will all be revived once we reach the Golden Land.
  • Yes, the killings will follow the epitaph above. That means right off the bat (Well, a little later than that, actually), six people will die. Followed by two, then one, then one again, and again...
  • Plot Point I: The point of this plot is to slowly unravel the story as it goes along. Once everyone dies, time will repeat itself. Then, in the next 'game', (same characters) the victims will try to solve the epitaph in order to cease the killings on the island. Another major point in the plot is to attempt to declare how a human could cause the killings.
  • Plot Point II: The story itself will be represented by supporting the theory of deaths by magic, yet the point of the actual plot is to decipher how the deaths actually occurred in a logical sense.
  • If you are confronted by a magical being, there will most likely be no stopping your death, but you may fight back if you would like. :3
  • There are four Winchester Shotguns on the island, which means that a few characters might have something to protect themselves with. Fear not, those of you who have nothing to protect yourselves with, you'll all be fine. :3
  • Killing buddies = Not recommended.... But allowed. :3
  • I highly suggest watching the first three episodes of the anime (Umineko no Naku Koro ni) if you wish to fully understand the plot.
