Everyone can be a suspect when someone who is from an important and prestigious family is being killed, murdered or whatsoever. Even it means someone had more enemies.


#61343

But it be hard to prove who did it without strong evidence or witnesses. Their no CSI and their likely no Tierran sherlock Holmes to solve the case.


#61344

But they do have a Royal Tierran Intelligence, my dear friend. Especially when considering that they have the files of every person of the peerage, and they can always find a way to put a head and a tail easily. Not even to forget that they will always know that who had close ties to Katrina to a point which she can be asking them to stay such a close relationship.


#61345

Still be a long list of suspects, for all any one knows it could be a great grandson of a banker who her ancestor screw over. If the PC did it as a lone wolf and destroyed the weapon it be harder to prove… Plus you also need to prove he was in area when she was killed.


#61346

I’m not sure what the standard of proof for accusing a baneblood of murder is, but “a great grandson of a banker who Callum the Cruel screwed over.” has no reason to kill Katarina.

So I’m pretty sure the list of possible suspects isn’t that long.

And of course, RTI and/or Caz might turn the PC into fish food without bothering to find evidence sufficient for a legal conviction, if they find out he did it/hired someone else to do it.


#61347

You don’t actually need to be on good terms with Lefebvre to capture her alive, I reported his actions to Hunter, so he pretty much hated me, but I still managed to convince him because my characters reputation was high enough.


#61348

As you silently creep into the dining room you come across the slim form of Lady Katarina at supper, her back conveniently towards you.

“Ah, Lord Aldershall. You’re late.” Katarina comments, not breaking her supper or for that matter even turning to face you.

Panicked, you attempt to fire off a shot but before you can even pull the trigger she jumps out of her seat and twists around to launch her plate at you in a single, fluid motion; sending your pistol flying out of your now stinging hand. A powerful boot sends her chair sliding towards you, causing you to trip and fall face first on the floor. Halfway through lifting yourself up a guardless sabre impales you in the chest.

“Did you really believe that would succeed, Sancroix?” comes the voice of Lady Katarina, from behind you. “Sir Caius, would you please dispose of this refuse?”

Your last sight before fainting is the confusing sight of Sir Caius removing his wig.


#61349

Really depends on how complex you want the whole assassination plan to be. You can’t really plan for your husband suddenly throwing you off a cliff and then blaming the wind and the wet ground or whatever. Doesn’t matter how much of a super awesome mega-great spy you are.

And yes, that is a pretty obvious assassination which would be incredibly suspicious and Caius would go and (try to) murder you without a question. But in theory it would have her killed, and no serious investigation should find proof that you are the guilty one (“Whatcha gonna do, find fingerprints?”). It would just ruin your reputation and your relationship with the people of Leoniscourt, and bring a murderous Caius on your heels. No biggie.


#61350

MC: “My sweet silly jealous wife, I’ve only loved one person, I promise you.”

Katarina: “Only one? Oh, [player name], do you swear it? Only one?”

MC: “Only Caius.” Push

…though I really don’t think Katarina would fall for that as easily as Lysa Arryn.


#61351

Am I the only person who hasn’t thought of killing Katarina?


#61352

I’ve thought of it. Briefly.

Then I realized it was a horrible idea. Also, killing her will do more harm than good, because you’re probably going to have all these distant cousins of the Cazarostas quarreling over who gets Leoniscourt, no one will approve of the King taking it himself, and it will just be a mess.

Plus, given that she is the Earl’s sole legitimate child, I can only assume she will be one of the most heavily guarded people in Tierra once her identity is made public.


#61353

I suppose it depends on how you count this:

I don’t want her dead, but I can imagine playing a character who would find that (cat and also-cat) attractive.


#61354

@Jjcb gave me something that made me laugh for 2 minutes.

Hey Sir Caius 1v1 me and my 90 soldering.


#61355

Killing her isn’t worth the trouble. That’s what I think at least.


#61356

But Sir Caius does not fight fair. :grinning:


#61357

That’s what my 80 intelligence is for so I can construct a nuclear reactor with a paper weight and a piece of string.

And my 330 million crowns for some reason.

This will be used for my meme play through. My serious playthrough will always be my Wulframite because that was a fun character to try to make balanced and successful.

It’s also fun because it makes sense that my character whole-heartedly supports Hunter becoming a Saint. That way, we can have a Wulframite Order-Militant.


#61358

well, looking at your stats, it woulda been kinda weird to not be stinking rich too.


#61359

It would I just find it over the top to have 330 million.


#61360

I’m planning to buy Miguel’s debt and make him my puppet.


#61361

Why not buy takaran public debt as well?
