        • Tell me about Lord Sinclair
          • Player: Tell me about Lord Sinclair
          • Man: Old Lord Sinclair was a great man with a lot of
          • Man: respect in these parts. More than his worthless
          • Man: children have anyway
          • Player: His children? They have something to gain by his death?
          • Man: yes. you could say that. not that im one to gossip

              • Man: Bob is addicted to Tea. He can't make it through the day
              • Man: Without having at least 20 cups!
              • Man: You might not think thats a big thing,
              • Man: But he has spent thousands of gold to feed his habit
              • Man: At one point he stole a lot of silverware from the kitchen

              • Man: without putting a bet on which one will bark first

              • Man: to try and cover his debts, but he still owes a lot of
              • Man: people a lot of money. If his Father ever found out, he would
              • Man: stop his income, and then he would be in serious trouble

              • Man: You didn't hear it from me, but I heard
              • Man: a while ago she was conned out for a lot of money
              • Man: by a travelling salesman who sold her a box full

              • Man: She even stole a silver needle from her father that
              • Man: had great sentimental value for him. He was devestated when
              • Man: it was lost, and cried for a week thinking he had lost it
              • Man: If he ever found out that it was her who had stolen it
              • Man: He would go absolutely mental, maybe even disowning her
    • Who do you think was responsible?
      • Player: Who do you think was responsible?
      • Man: well, I guess it could have been an intruder
      • Man: but with that big guard dog of theirs
      • Man: I seriously doubt it.
      • Man: I suspect it was someone closer to home...
      • Man: Especially as I heard that that poison salesman
      • Man: in the seers village made a big sale to one
      • Man: of the family the other day.
    • Why do the Sinclairs live so far from town?
      • Player: Why do the Sinclairs live so far from town?

      • Man: but old Lord Sinclair gave it up so that those
      • Man: strange knights could live there instead
      • Man: So the king built him a new house to the North
      • Man: Its more cramped than his old place, but he seemed to like it
      • Man: his children were furious at him for doing it though
    • I think the butler did it
      • Player: I think the butler did it
      • Man: And I think you've been reading too many
      • Man: cheap detective novels
      • Man: Hobbes is kind of uptight, but his loyalty
      • Man: to Old Lord Sinclair is beyond question
    • I am so confused about who did it
      • Player: I am so confused about who did it
      • Player: think you could give me any hints?
      • {A possible hint}
        • Man: well, I dont know if its related
        • Man: But I heard from that Poison Salesman in town
        • Man: That he sold some poison to one of the family the other day
        • Man: I don't think he has any stock left now though...
      • {Another possible hint}
        • Man: Well I don't know how much help this is
        • Man: but I heard that their guard dog will bark loudly at anyone
        • Man: it doesn't recognise
        • Man: maybe you should find out if anyone heard anything suspicious?
      • {Another possible hint}
        • Man: Well, this might be of some help to you
        • Man: My father was in the guards when he was younger
        • Man: and he always said that there isn't a crime that can't be
        • Man: solved through careful examination of the crime scene
        • Man: and all surrounding areas
      • {Another possible hint}
        • Man: I don't know how much help this is to you
        • Man: but my dad was in the guard once
        • Man: and he told me that the marks on your hands
        • Man: Are totally unique. He called them 'finger prints'
        • Man: He said you can find them easily on any shiny metallic surface
        • Man: By using a fine powder to mark out where the marks are
        • Man: and then using some sticky paper to lift the print from the object
        • Man: I bet if you could find a way to get everyones 'finger prints'
        • Man: you could solve the crime pretty easily
      • {Another possible hint}
        • Man: My father used to be in the guard.
        • Man: He always wrote himself notes on a piece of paper
        • Man: so he could keep track of information easily.
