The difficulty of this chapter is Reasonably Solvable. Would you care to guess?
The story so far...
Ten years later, in 2021, a boy met with an enigmatic Witch to try to discover the truth of that night. At this gathering, he and a group of humans fought a series of duels to dispel the Witch's illusions. However, when the first duel ended, the boy unexpectedly defected to the Witch's side, leaving the players seemingly alone to face the bizarre mystery.
A Note for New Players:
If you don't want to fish through all the earlier posts, here are a few tips:
* The narration is not literally reliable. Some scenes are exaggerations, and others are metaphorical. However, statements in red are true.
* There are two layers to this story, at the very least. We are reading sheets of paper describing supposed events of 2011. We are also attending a Witch's Banquet devoted to grappling with the mysteries raised by those sheets of paper.
Synopsis/Key Post Index:
17. The duel ends; the Banquet of the First Chapter begins; guests reminisce in the rain; the courtship of the Sapphire Witch ends; the human side strikes at the core of the Sapphire Witch's being and nearly ends the game.
