Title: The Medea Syndrome

Difficulty: Average


Main Plot: Giant Time Bomb

Subplot 1: The Hidden Freak

Subplot 2: Threads of Fate

Number of Loops: 3

Days per Loop: 6

Hints for Mastermind:
This is a script geared toward Protagonists still a bit unused to Tragedy Looper. We have few roles, so we need to hide at least the Witch as long as we can, else it's gg. On the other hand, Protagonists will need to focus on Goodwill abilities, and the Police Officer may never reveal his mandatory refusal. For the first loop, try using the Cultist to kill the Nurse via Faraway Murder. Don't be afraid of over using his ability, he would have been discovered anyway pretty soon. Then, 2nd loop, Threads of Fate will make triggering Incidents considerably easier. Keep killing the Nurse if you can, or try a steady win via Hospital Incident. It's up to you. 3rd loop is a battle of wits. If you succeed, you may still lose at The Final Guess unless you managed to hide the Witch so be careful. The Cultist is your best friend. Beware, the Protagonists will try to kill him with the Serial Killer. If you can, try to keep the Journalist's role concelead at least for the first loop; that will make your plays a lot easier. Use Spreading to choose a character you want Paranoia on next loop. Faraway Murder is your midgame major threat, and your best bet to kill the Nurse.
