Introduction

Good morning.
Please enjoy this new game by a new Game Master at your leisure.

However, the game has already reached a climax.
The culprit has been cornered, and there's nothing left to do but await the final checkmate.
But for that very reason, there must be something for you to spot looking down on it from afar.

The difficulty is fairly easy.
What could possibly deceive you after all this time...?

Plot Summary

Main article: End of the Golden Witch/Plot Summary

Lambdadelta takes over as Game Master following Beatrice's defeat at the end of the previous arc while Bernkastel takes primary control of the human side in the game. Battler meanwhile tries to understand the truth behind Beato's games and comes into conflict with Erika Furudo, a detective character created by Bern who approaches the island murders from a "mystery" perspective, in contrast to Battler's "anti-fantasy" stance. The chapter also has a focus on Natsuhi, who receives threatening phone calls from a "Man from 19 Years Ago".
