When exactly do you know when you are ready to start one? I have just started doing AI cases(although have had to quit some as everyone clamms up before I can get all alibis), belong to an agency, have a few contacts...should I have more?

Also was wondering if you purchase a skill from a fraction and for example it says 15 skill points does that mean they take away something that equals 15 points....it takes so long to build them up, I don't want to lose anything I have spent so long getting.

Any help would be appreciated before I start one.

Also, don't give up on a case just because you have no clue who might have done it.

I have solved several cases by guessing randomly at one person and checking witness evidence against them until I got it confirmed that they indeed did it.

As a matter of fact the only AV hunt I've ever been on was solved mostly through cases where I had no real clue who could have done it. Took me a week to catch him, but then I only had contacts in NY at the time so that could explain why it took so long.

See kiddies, he is still following the formula of Fake/None + WE or WE + WE.

So he's not really guessing, right Dave? Dave??

Yes and no.
I make a guess and then I check it up. Following the above formula.

I would never accuse on a guess alone. That way lies Shady and he's not someone you want to meet at my level. When apartments are cheaper than false accusations you really need to be careful in double-checking your notes before accusing.

Mistakes are still made and I pay for them in cold hard cash. Never play while sleepwalking. It is a bad and evil thing!

Wherefore art thou my sweet green dough of yesterday? Gone to Shady all of it! sob T_T

Thank you all for the sound advice....I will wait till for awhile and keep building up to the day when I can start one.

I know what you mean about Shady...he has taken a lot of my money only because I don't like to quit at anything....learning though it is the best to do...The hard way of course...by paying.

Ponders for a moment...Things to do today...Quit while I am ahead and learn patience ....What is a girl to do?

I've done that a lot too, picked a name or picture and asked everyone if they did it. It does work sometimes, lot to be said about a hunch.
It used to always be Nosveli, but he seems to have given up on the life of crime for the most part these days. A lot of times its the only Americanized name in Delhi or Shanghai. I say a lot of times, not always, not worth hazarding a guess over.

I want to start my first VH soon and was wondering about going between cities. Will I use up my cases as I travel on a VH?

Yes. Travel costs are the same on AVH's as they are in regular travel. Of course, the Compact Travel Kit will help deter one case per travel (4 in total on the AVH), so if you are worried about every single case lost by travel, you could take that, but it would take away from other tough/charm/smart gear you could be carrying.
