When elections come to play, angling is at least as serious as city politics.

"The Party of Sea Anglers is fighting the Sea Angling Party is the race for president of the Sea Angling Association."


Bob Chabon: Hi, it's me, Bob. We met at the docks. You've dealt with elections before, right? We've got a real pickle here!

Bob Chabon: I'm representing the Party of Sea Anglers and we're trying to win the race for president of the Sea Angling association.

Bob Chabon: But the Sea Angling Party is playing dirty. They want their candidate elected as well.

Detective: So the... glorious PSA is going against the evil SAP in a deadly crash which will shape the future of sea angling in the city.

Bob Chabon: You're a quick learner, I'll give you that! Not many people get the difference between PSA and SAP!


Detective: To be honest, I haven't heard about either the PSA or the SPA. I mean SAP. Whatever! I need to hit the streets to get some info.

If you fail:

Detective: I found no evidence of foul play in the PSA. Or was it SAP? SPA? Darn it!

If you win: Detective: Huh. Everything with SAP seems to be in order... except one detail. The SAP has some unacounted expenses. Maybe I should follow the money trail?

City search: Gutenberg GoodsEdit

Detective: It looks like it was an anonymous payment to one of the companies in this area. I need to check out which one.

The company is:

  • in the distance of 1 from railways
  • more than 2 from gas stations
  • more than 1 from pubs
  • more than 1 from post offices
  • more than 1 from shops
  • more than 1 from water
  • more than 1 from warehouses
  • not on prisons
  • On the map there are 2 gas stations
  • On the map there are 4 pubs
  • On the map there are 2 post offices
  • On the map there are 2 shops

If you fail:

Detective: I can't trace the company. Maybe they were using the company as a money mule for some illegal business? I guess I'll never know.

If you win:

Detective: A printing office. Hmmm. This is the same company which printed the ballot papers for the angling association.

Suspect identification: Fish Out of the WaterEdit

Detective: I can't check what the SPA ordered, but I can check who picks it up.

Solution: Wu Madou

If you fail:

Detective: Nothing. I feel in this case like a fish out of water.

If you win:

Detective: Wu Madou is a member of the association's electoral commission.

Detective: It looks like she only picked up the ballot papers... but isn't that a bit too much ballots for such a small association?

Crime scene search: Who Counts the Votes?Edit

Detective: The polling station opens soon. I need to check where are those extra ballot papers brought in by Madou! If you examine the boxes in the locked room north of polling place: Detective: Madou definitely had more ballot papers than this. I need to find the rest.

If you fail:

Detective: Maybe I was wrong all along. I can't find anything out of the ordinary.

If you win:

Detective: Bob, I've got hard evidence that the ballots were rigged by Wu Madou in favour of SPA, ready to be added to the rest.

Bob Chabon: Great, we've got them! I'll tell the electoral commission's chairman and spread the word across all the association. The PSA will win for sure!


If you fail:

Bob Chabon: I'm disappointed. It turns out you don't understand SAP's mission after all!

Detective: SAP? I thought you were representing PSA?

Bob Chabon: of course I'm representing PSA. You thought I'm from SAP? How could you! You're fired!

If you win: Bob Chabon: Oh, what a disaster! We lost the election!

Detective: Really? What happened, Bob? Who won?

Bob Chabon: The Oceanic Angler's Coalition!

Detective: ... what?

Bob Chabon: Everybody voted for OAC because people couldn't tell PSA and SAP apart!

Detective: Wow. Just wow. I mean, uh... how is that even possible?

Bob Chabon: I know, right? But don't worry, I'm a man of my word. I'll send you the check.
