I've started work on the next update for Sleuth, and as promised it's going to be a content update. However, it's going to take a while before any of you see it, at least two months, potentially far longer than that.

Now I would hate to leave you all in the Sleuth wilderness, totally devoid of changes, so every one to two weeks I'll create an update from the suggestions you give here. An example of a small update (from the desk of Bela Talbot III) would be including your most recent fortune telling in the case file so long as you haven't discovered any new suspects since then.

Whilst this is going on I'll also fix up the small bugs lying around the game. For example, there's a certain accessory devouring fox that needs reining in, and possibly relocating. So don't worry about suggesting bug fixes here. Keep it to small things you'd like to see, or small annoyances you'd like changed.

Isn't there already a status bonus that comes with certain offices you buy? I always wondered if that boosted your chances to unclam a suspect.

I think that stat bonus just refers to faction standing.

You'll have to explain that one to me Yeti.

Sure. I might be wrong, but I believe the office stat bonus boosts your standing with factions in the city your office is based in. So if your office is in new york for example and has a bonus then you'll have bonus standing with the brotherhood, order, and nostra.

And what does that bonus standing with the factions give you? I mean I've never seen a reduction in prices or something similar with a faction just because of the bonus that comes with the office.

I don't know what the exact design intention was but one potential benefit is that it might alter the basic range that standing moves towards over time. If you're in negative standing for example every day you'll trot closer towards -3 standing. However, if you had a +3 standing office I think you'd trot towards 0 standing instead. Makes it easier to suck up to a faction you'd previously wronged when you need 'em.

I got you. Thx for clearing this out. Jeez, I've been in this game for over 10 years and never knew about this :)

You're welcome. :-) I don't think it's clearly explained anywhere (except on the boards I guess) and as you say it's not really a huge deal as far as bonuses go. I just hope I wasn't telling you rubbish.

I'd also like to add a suggestion. I know we already can spend skill points while doing certain nemesis tasks. But I'm still building up quite a bit of them.

Would it be too much of an overhaul if we could use them for let's say changing a townie contact? It'll have to be a hefty amount of skill points though.

Not a bad idea. I know there's heavy demand for things for changing townie contacts.
