i think the basement should be rentable to any subscriber without having to open an agency. this would allow inexpensive storage for 4 extra items and might stop the increase in agency setup that might be developing in order to get someplace to store extra items since the apartments and their furnishings are so expensive. with fewer agencies opened just for access for storage the true agencies might obtain these detectives.

Well, since we're at real estate purchasing/renting suggestions, I'd kinda' like the idea of being able to rent hotel rooms in each city. The rooms can have also a safe deposit box or something where we could store an item or 2, items that we can ship when making the reservation from another city. This would be useful during VHs, for being able to carry around one or 2 smart items or the compact travel kit.

While I realize it's a natural tendency to want things to be "easier," especially after you've done something several times and have it "down pat," I think the allure of Villain Hunts is that they are a challenge - or they're supposed to be. Having an apartment in every city or being able to rent a hotel room to change smart and/or tough gear to make solving cases easier just defeats that purpose. A Villain Hunt, to me, is supposed to be a case of just you and your wits and the clothes on your back against the villains of the cities of Sleuth.

Having said that, I realize that if Ben did give us hotel rooms or apartments in every city, everyone has the choice to buy/rent or not.

Heh...I have to agree I do like my life easy :)

But speaking to the subject, having the possibility to carry 1-2 smart items gives a lower chance than being able to equip full smart gear. Also, considering you can have now 2 cityes covered from this point of view - agency city and apartment city, provided they are not in same town - this possibility would only have to cover only the other 2 cityes. Of course, all cityes should have the possibility for renting open in order to evoid the concentration of all agencies in only 2 towns.

In any case, I think VHs are a challange with or without the aid of smart gear.

I agree with Sindy! Whenever I VH I always use a travel kit and I always have Zero smarts. It works well for me and I like it :D

Both suitcase or hotel idea sounds great. True though, that we really don't need to bring our gears around. For my first VH (just done one so far 'cuz im very busy lately), i didn't lug my apartment around but still managed to finish it under 3 days, and the lack of facility does help to speed things up. I now is into the habit of not changing gears often, i guess i'm just lazy :)

Ok ok...no making life easyer. Let me put it like this then: I'd like to rent/buy something new just for the sake of it...or for the sake of wasting my money on something that adds a bit of color to the present ones. Hmmm...come to think of spending my cash...the race track is getting kinda boring. How about having more gambling parlors around the other cityes also?

I think Shadows would like a brothel in every city, too... ;) What would be fun would be to have books for sale in the bookstore though. Extraordinarily expensive, of course! I while I would absolutely HATE it if pirates stole stuff sometimes, that would be interesting! :)

There is at least one brothel in every city, haven't you noticed? I'd rather have a bookstore too. Oh, and a REAL partycave. It could have ponies in it to satisfy SS... Party-ponies...
