Challenge Points and Coats

Sleuth Admin

As of now, Multi Sleuth Showdowns and Treasure Hunts both award Challenge Points to the winner(s). As you have no doubt noticed, Challenge Points are a requirement for purchasing a new type of equippable item, COATS.

Additional Notes:

* Coats are gendered! You can only buy or wear a coat that fits your detective's gender. (maybe this rule will be relaxed the next time Mardi Gras rolls around).

* Although it is possible to play a Multisleuth Showdown by yourself, you will only earn Challenge Points if there is at least one other opponent. So round up your friends!

* On the other hand, the winning agency in a treasure hunt will all gain Challenge Points, regardless of how many other agencies are competing.

* You cannot currently store a coat in an agency equipment locker. This feature is coming in the next few days (still haven't decided if they will take the same number of slots as a gift).

* You cannot currently take a coat on or off. This may be added in the future, but I haven't decided whether or not it would be preferable that you could do this.

* Coats do not currently degrade. Sometime over the next few days, they will start degrading with usage. By usage, I mean that anytime you gain a benefit from a coat, it will wear out a bit. Eventually a coat will fall apart.

Do coat standing points count towards the 25 points needed in a treasure hunt?

I fixed a couple bugs with the standing bonuses awarded by coats. The extra standing points should now currently count towards all these:

* Bonus Extra Questions for clammed townies
* Cases available from new case givers
* FA wiping price from the Fixer (for those of you who say there is no point in the Doylesburgh coat... although admittedly the price discount still caps out).
* Several miscellaneous missions

Coats do not currently help with treasure hunts. They probably should, so assume I'll add that one soon.
