If I have equipment that doesn't fit my archetype, does that damage my skills? For example, I have a black coat at the moment which is +2 toughness, but I am smart and charming. Should I get rid of the coat?
Thanks, and happy new year!
You can get help from other detectives via the case files... as other detectives usually have different contacts.
SO for example if you have a case with 3hairs and you don't have barber contact, you can put your case into the case file and ask for the person with the barber contact to talk to the barber for you. Then they can resave the case for you.
Saves on quit cases, and you can also do more difficult cases when you work as a team.
Most agencies that have been around awhile have all the contacts, I know ours does. :).
Crime Labs are great to get specific evidence...if you need to know Slim or Heavy from a footprint for example.
