Greetings,

Just a thought, I know that you can store items in lockers when you are in an agency. What whould you think of having another location like a bus depot where we could rent a locker for an initial fee and a lesser daily/weekly fee. I am sure that would come in handy for those who travel to a different city than that one of their home base or to detectives who do not want to join agencies. Maybe you could also use the owner of the bus station for tresure hunts or some other function. Let me know what you guys think.

I agree 100% with Dogberta :)

I further what Dogberta said. I especially like the idea of each detective having to manage their own little storage locker with maybe 2 items. And it is better for the hunts, now that they are actually lasting a while, not to have too much when we're travelling.

I don't want TOO much but I have to admit I like Ben's original thoughts....

A compromise would be a locker at the bus station or wherever, and the capacity to pass a key to an agency member who is in the same city at the same time you are there....

....and if someone leaves with the key, you have to get it from there wherever they are, even if it's in some other inconvenient city?

Maybe we could make the locker key an accessory, making us carry one less item to help our stats each case if we want the locker?

I can hear me already, "HELP! I locked my key in the locker!!!" :)

I think I have to agree with Orbitrux...giving us room for at least a full set of smarts gear would be fantastic but limiting them so they can't be shared amoung the agency members IF they are involved in hunts.....Might take a little creative programming to achieve that.... but maybe that would solve the Treasure Race also...(winking at Dogberta)

Also Ben how about A western Union so we can wire money back to our agency to pay the rent....LOL

Making the locker key an item sounds like a good idea. Makes you trade flexibility for strength.

As to spider man's suggestion, surely this could be achieved through the bank or post office rather than setting up a seperate place. After all a lot of the locations we visit are for more than one thing.

I also think that agencies should be allowed to open "company" bank accounts in citites outside of their own, so when travelling they can access some money, in case nobody's at the "office" to wire them any...for a fee, of course.

Also, to be able to rent a room at the hotels, for storage of items and a few case files maybe

What I'd like to see is the opportunity for individual detectives to be able to hire their own locker at a station/port. They'd have to pay "rent" obviously - maybe they could pay up front for a number of days. If they don't claim their stuff within that time, they can't get at it unless they pay interest? Storage should be limited to 4 items, but I don't see why detectives shouldn't give access to their private locker to other detectives if they want. I think such a facility should be available to all subscribed detectives, whether in an agency or not.

Not sure about the field office idea - I assume this would mean paying further rent for premises? Maybe it's something we'd need to try out and see if we thought it was worth the extra money.
