This is a mix of game and fanfic. If you've played Dark Sotories, you know how it works. If not, I will explain this game that will be very easy to play.
One player is the master. The master creates a small fanfic of a paragraph referring to something from the ASOUE universe. In this Fanfic there is some tragedy. The master creates an enigma regarding that little fafanfic. The master knows the answer to the riddle and must answer questions. The master "What do you think happened?” The master, of course, knows the answer, but keeps it to him or herself. The other player or players are the detectives, and begin asking the master questions. The questions must be posed so that the master can reply with a simple “yes” or “no”.
. With skill and perseverance, the detectives will draw closer to the solution. Of course, again and again, as they grasp for clues, the detectives might ask a question that...
1 - ... cannot simply be answered with a “yes” or a “no”. For example: “Was the man tall or short?” Upon receiving such an inquiry, the master must insist that the detectives rephrase their question.
2 - ... cannot be answered with a “yes” or “no” answer because the question has been posed with clearly incorrect assumptions – for example: if the detectives ask, “Was the man tall?”, when the dark story isn‘t about a man, but an animal instead. In this case, the master must inform the detectives that the question is based on false assumptions.
3 - .. should not be answered with a “yes” or “no” answer because it would lead the detectives astray – for example: if the detectives ask, “Was the man previously in the church?”, when it doesn’t matter whether or not the man was ever in the church. Answering this question could lead the detectives in the wrong direction. What the master chooses to do must be decided on a case by case basis, as it can be fun to string the detectives along. In order to help the detectives, a kind master can choose to tell the detectives that the answer to a posed question is irrelevant to the story.
Anyone can play, and anyone can join the game at any time. So, I think this game will not stop ... There are no limits to questions. You can ask consecutive questions. I will be the first master, and if anyone wants to be the master in the next rounds, please send me a private message.
The cases will occur in the ASOUE universe, and can be based on fanfics on absurd things common in the ASOUE universe can happen.
