I use those alot as well Fletchi; I think I use fabric and hair most.

If you don't want those, how about another Intimidation.

I LOVE my necromancy (though I'm sure you're not there yet)- because I don't run out of charm and intimidation I can ask for leads with no worries and I've gotten in the habit of asking just about everyone.

With 18 pts you can get two research skills- I use them mostly for motives but you can get whereabouts as well.
But I think you really need to have at least one of the analysis skills- footprint or hair (I get those the most). Hope this helps!

If you want analysis skills get one that is inspected by a woman rather than thread analysis, you normally have a spare gift for the tailor since he is a man and most of the townies are women.

More charm is good though, you don't have to move the mouse as far s you do for intimidation.

Peach, if it's not some kind of secret, how do you meet the Facilitator? That sounds like the direction I'd like to go in.

On second thought- I found this thread- half way down Joseph posts some info on unlocking some of the townies:

It's a little early for you to learn necromancy- I believe (hopefully someone can correct me if I'm wrong) you have to hit 100,000 to unlock necromancy.

I looked at your experience pts and noticed you belong to an agency. Your agency usually is the best place to ask which skills to get (at least the more controversial ones like necromancy- they will also help you collect the needed "gifts.")

Peach, thanks for responding. I just joined an agency about a week ago and am just learning the ropes. I appreciate your response. Necromancy, here I come! (That doesn't sound quite right. lol)

LOL! No, it doesn't sound right!
