In the interest of keeping it to a seperate disussion from the new city thread lets start a thread on the new factions people would like to see.

For clarification this is just a wish list for what people are suggesting for new additions, nothing in this thread is currently in the works.

But we can always dream, Sleuth Admin is like Santa if you really believe you might find a nice present left for you.


In the new cities thread several places have been proposed. If there are any new cities added the following is presumed to occur:

2 new cities = existing factions expand in the number of cities they are resident in.

4 new cites = 6 new factions, each presumed to be teaching a new skill

So what factions and what skills are you dreaming of?

Ah, I see what you mean White Noise. I think the concern is that would make the game to easy.

White noise, can you come up with a faction idea that would teach such a skill?

I do agree that it would make favor cases fairly easy for experienced detectives but if it was a very rare skill, only from one faction, cost quite a few skill points, and was not a sure thing I think it could end up balanced for most detectives.

White Noise, do you mean like a skill that will allow you to recheck the crime scene if another detective without all physical evidence checks it?

If so, I think that would be a great idea. I don't think such a skill would make the cases too easy.

What about a faction skill that allows you to transfer one case a day to another detective, when you are away from your HQs?

*laughs* I love it Squirrel! There could be a whole lot of them!
Skills that let you make coffee while on the computer... skills that talk for you while you're in a middle of a hunts.. skills that feed, clothe and wash the baby!

Heh, basic skills that live your life for you while you feed your Sleuth Addiction!

I like the Concept behind yours bwyk.

Right now we only hve one skill (Safe Cracking) that is only useful for detectives in agencies. Perhaps something along the lines of what you are talking about would be a nice addition to an agencies pool of skills. Perhaps it could only be used between two detectives that both have the same skill, one on the road and one in the home city? That should balance things out for hunts.
