Blood & Dagger is in search of a few willing detectives who would like to donate some equipment to our agency. Specifically, we need some Smarts gear, as well as some Tough and Charm...
>> White Lab Coat
>> Cloisonne Harmony Orbs
>> Two Tone Loafers
>> Marwadi Pagdi
>> Rattlesnake Cowboy Boots
>> High Class Two Tones
>> Ivory Nymph Pipe
>> Black Dress Shoes
Any of these items, or other, better ones are great donations to help us with our Locker stock. Please post here if you are willing to donate, and list how many items you will contribute and which ones they are. Contact me to gain entry into the agency and deposit the items in the Locker.

We are also searching for a few detectives who can donate some money into the Office Safe. Not much, since our rent is $350 per day, but maybe $1000 per detective so we can keep the train chugging for a few months?

Any contributions and/or donations are welcome. We at Blood & Dagger Inc. thank anyone willing to help us!

Thank you!

"I'm considering leaving my agency to try and become successful in one started by myself"

I believe you were in an agency that was beginning to gain quite a lot of equipment. When you make the decision to start your own agency, you also make the decision to start pretty much at the bottom of things.

All new agencies have to slowly gain gear over time and through work. Even at Mokita where we started an angency with experienced players, it took time, effort and work to gain a good equipment locker.

If you do want to start a sucessful agency by yourself, my advice is to do what agencies do and work hard. :) You will get there, I am sure S&H, Black Swan, The Underground, Mojos and Eyespy didn't start out with a Christmas Wish List and look where they are now.

I'm sure you could be there one day too.

Yes but when...that's always the key!

In time, thats when :) That is actually all apart of the fun, in my opinion, of building things up yourself. I do know some agencies do donate to other agencies to help out , and so be it, but to me, I would think it would be more challenging and fun, to do it alone...instead of having it handed to u :) Not saying it is wrong, just giving my 2 cents worth ;)

I agree that it's part of the fun, building things up yourself. We worked really hard for about a month, building up equipment and gear, before even recruiting--we wanted to make sure we could outfit our agents well when they started, and build up our smart gear. I had to smile when I saw the Ivory Nymph pipe on your list. Two of us are in Delhi right now, getting in with factions here--my purpose is to get that pipe (and a scimitar or two)! I travelled across the world, left my cushy warm agency to work in this cramped, cold office, had to make new contacts here, and to be honest, all I want is a plate of pasta, but good luck finding that here. But it's an adventure, and once I have that pipe, it's MINE! So yeah, I send you guys best wishes for your new agency, but no Ivory Nymph Pipe for you! :p

Some of those items you'r looking for are very expensive and take a lot of work to get. No offence but asking for things like that shows inexperience, and the only way your going to get experience is lots of case solving .

Working for items your self will give you a better understanding of how they work and you will appreciate them more as well.

Some Agencies may want to give some things to you they have in surplus not on your list.

Moonlighting has'nt been around that long and we hav'nt asked for any donations or gear, yet we're doing ok.

So it can be done and it's way more fun.

Some gear can only be received through favors, too. So some agencies might not have these extra lying around. However, once you have more detectives, you can each choose a faction. Then, as you are gaining their favor, you can also gain money to buy the more expensive items.

Some items you might be able to buy from other agencies are from almost impossible cases. These you also can receive once you have over 100,000 experience, which you do. Items are marwadi padgi, two tone shoes, etc.

And, there are some more experienced detectives who like to join new agencies to help them out. I would search for one of these detectives. Though keep in mind, sometimes they are already helping another agency, and might not be able to help out right away.

The important thing is is that you are trying. Time is the biggest challenge for a new agency.

Just keep doing your 10 cases everyday, preferrably almost impossible, and in no time, you will be up and running.

Good luck!

Okay, thanks for the input.

Unfortunatly, we do not have a lot of members right now. Anyone care in helping us build?

Lucian, you will with hard work be able to get all the things on your list.

You might find someone to help you out with items you wish to purchase from an agency. I know we at Mojo Enterprises would be glad to help with that. But the idea of a new agency out there "pan handling" on the streets for equipment just after opening their doors will turn some people off.

I would say to continue to recruit, help your individual detectives grow and be strong.

I think that it is decieving sometimes that an agency can be built overnight. It take months of long hard work by many people. Mojo would not be what it is today without the seemlingly endless cases done by over 70 detectives over the years.

Aim high, work hard, and good things will come your way.
