should I get research already? if not, what skills would you recommend?

i'm currently playing at easy to intermediate level.

thanks in advance.

Which are you having trouble more with? The townies or the Suspects? If your having more trouble with townies, then I'd recommend buying advanced rule bending. If your having trouble with suspects, I'd recommend buying intermediate sweet talking.

Hehe I'm having equal trouble...but I was thinking advanced rule bending just because if a pile of suspects all claim the same PE townsperson as an alibi, I'll get more questions... :-/ But I've been recently having more suspects clam before I get alibis...grr. :-)

I think I'm going to go with the Rule Bending...I can always figure out clammed alibis other ways... I'd rather have the PE. :-)

Since you need both as a Charming detective, it's a six-of-one, half-a-dozen kind of answer you're asking for. My money'd be on the Sweet-Talking, since you have a lot more options through your Agency with getting townie help. There are much fewer options if you have all your suspects clam. Again, that's my two cents. You'll need both fairly, so whichever you don't get now, you'll be going for soon anyway. ;-)

Either way, if you're quitting more than you're solving because of clammed townies or suspects, try going down a level. You don't have to do the hardest level you are able to, just what you are comfortable with.

Nunchuck skills, bowhunting skills, computer hacking skills... Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I am a smart and charming detective, I have got almost all of basic smart/charming skills (Need hand writing analysis) anyway I was wondering what to get next, do I go for interrogation/intidation or do I go for the faction skills.

I also have lockpicking and hypnotisim already.

on the same lines does Judge of Charactor, tell you if you are more likely in your current situation perswade someone tough or charm or in general the person is more suseptable to which? if it is the latter is there any use getting it until I get advanced intimidation/interrigation?

AKA, if you do not have the basic handwriting skill, I would advise you to get that one as fast as possible. You need handwriting and Thread analysis to discover those two items at the crime scene. Without the basics of those, you will not find all the evidence thus making your solving cases harder.

After that, I would say get the advanced charm skills and leave the tough skills alone until later.

Judge of character gives you an idea of how best to persuade a suspect. It is used more when you have both tough and charming interview types. When you use JoC this is what you will see. (of course the numbers will be different.)


Base Interrogation Chance: 66
Tough Equipment Adjustment: -4
Adjusted Interrogation Chance: 62

Base Sweet Talking Chance: 55
Charming Equipment Adjustment: 25
Advanced Skill Bonus: 35
Flirting Bonus: 20
Adjusted Sweet Talking Chance: 135

It would be easier to influence Paxton by being nice.
