What: A major expansion to Sleuth
When: Wednesday, February 16th, 2005 (Probably in the Evening)
Hypothetical Software is proud to announce the upcoming release of a major expansion
to Sleuth: Cities of Mystery. Cities of mystery will expand the game world to
include 4 complete cities, each with their own inhabitants, political factions
and special locations. Subscribers will be able to travel between cities in search
of new skills, equipment, and more valuable treasures.
More Daily Mysteries: Subscribers will be allowed to play 10 mysteries a day
instead of 8.
Travel: Traveling between cities will require an investment of both time and money.
In addition to the cost of the ticket, a detective will have to spend a
certain number of turns (daily mysteries) to make the trip. The further apart two
cities are, the longer the trip will take, and the more it will cost.
Agencies: Agencies will be based in one of the four cities. When a member
of an agency is traveling in a different city, they will not have access to the
agency equipment locker, case files, office safe or treasure room. Directors will
be able to move agency headquarters to a different city. If an agency moves, all
of the equipment stored in the locker can be shipped to the new city.
Contacts: Each city will have its own set of residents. Detectives will need to
forge new relationships if they want to be fully effective in a new city.
