I read!! But I have one question regarding "accusing the killer"... I have found out who the killer is, with three stars and a fake alibi. I have used my only intimidations and because I don't have the motive I cannot accuse.

What do I do? I think it's silly that they "clam up" so quickly and you can barely ask any questions. Even the shops and other places "clam up" and you have to offer bribes or intimidate them. Doesn't give you much of a chance to find out what you need to know.

@A_Marie:

You can get motive of the killer by asking other suspects, but since you said they clammed up on you, then the other way is to research for the motive. There's 3 locations (Police Station, Daily Monitor and Hospital) in which you can do research, but since you have only level 1, then you can look at the killer's connection to the victim, if its business related/family related, then the motive would be in the Daily Monitor.

In order to make towns people more co-operative, you can increase their standing points by doing favors for them. Besides bribing townies, you can give them 1 gift.

I am new and I read. May I suggest, it would be easier for me if the titles of the helpful hints were more focused. For example, right now, I'm trying to figure out the Special Mission for the Bishop. I understand you should do it once a day and when you need to change your favor cases? I'm highly confused. I just did a special mission for the bishop, not prior to a favor case, I earned 5 points with the bishop and I'm not exactly sure what the benefit is, other than earning points with the Bishop. Any help is appreciated. And I'm sure there's something on the message boards....SOMEWHERE.

@Al-Greenberg:

Special Mission is not only done in order for you to change your favors as you do them in order to increase the standings of faction boss by 5.

With 15 Standings:
- Offer you 2 cases at a time.
- Allows you to buy the Monocle (for your avatar to wear) for $4000.
- Allows you to buy the Red Leather (a coat) for $120000 and 12 Challenge points that adds 10 bonus standings to all Doyleburgh townies.

With 40 Standings:
- Offer you 3 cases at a time.
- Allows you to start a Treasure Hunt for Dies Arcanum Brotherhood Faction (when you're in an agency) for the cost of 10 standing points.
- Allow you to buy Citrine Ring (+2 Research Skills), which is an accessory that you can wear.

With 50 Standings:
- Allow you to buy the Cuff (for your avatar to wear) for $10000.

The prices will drop 10\% for every level of Negotiation Skills that you have.

Hope that helps. ^_^

Weapons gives 3 stars
Physical evidence gives 1 - 2 stars
Witness evidence gives 1 - 2 stars

Nel82, the stars can be seen when you click on case files in the right top corner. It shows all your suspects and the items collected. When you click on every suspect you will see stars behind one or two of your suspects.
The one with 3 stars and fake alibi is the killer.
Hope this helps. :)
