On the Subject of Death Note
“I’ll take a potato chip AND EAT IT!” - Light Yagami
Kira is currently being secretly investigated by the Japanese police force and therefore cannot give justice to the world or he risks being caught. Therefore, he has mailed your defuser, his trusted friend, his death note and interface to make sure that justice can still be served while he gets himself out of suspicion. Your defuser will be the new temporary god of the new world, the new interim Kira.
On the interface is a 24-hour clock, a day counter, the death note, two buttons with a phone and newspaper symbol, and three buttons that say “RETURN”, “PASS ON”, and “GO ON”.
The clock lets your defuser keep track of time to delete criminals in the death note. It also restricts certain deletions to be performed at specific hours and minutes, which can be found on page 3 under Time Restrictions.
The day counter lets your defuser keep track of how many days they have been the interim Kira. Each day starts at 00:00:00 and ends at 23:59:59.
The death note may be opened by clicking the cover, and closed by pressing the top left corner of the left page when the death note is open. Inside the death note on the left page will be different selectable letters and symbols (including an enter key bottom right and a delete key to its left), which your defuser may use to write down and delete the day’s criminals in the format of [Name] [Time of Death (hr:min:sec)] [Cause of Death]. Use the enter key to separate criminal entries. Writing cannot be erased after pressing enter, so write carefully. There are also restrictions to the causes of death, see page 3 under Cause of Death Restrictions to view these restrictions.
The button with a phone symbol calls the real Kira, which is not safe to do until the 4th day of being Kira since your defuser could risk him getting caught. Once it is safe to do so, your defuser must call Kira everyday to see if there is specific instructions Kira wants your defuser to follow. Remember that Kira does not like to repeat instructions. Kira assumes your defuser knows to listen to the news and delete the correct criminals without given instructions for the first 3 days.
The newspaper button plays a snippet of the day’s news possibly telling the names of criminals*. This is where your defuser gets all the information needed to delete the correct criminals for the day using the death note. The defuser can play the snippet as many times as they want.
