->'''Shaughnessy :''' ->'''Shaughnessy:''' I assume it was suicide, Doctor?\\



->It has been said that most merchants die not of lawbreaking or lack of coin but of running afoul of a cabal--one they belong to, two or more they belong to that end up having conflicting aims or activities, or just one they happen to be in the way of. Cabal troubles, even more than angry victims of swindles, are the reason so many merchants mysteriously fall out of high windows, fall 'asleep' on streets where heavily laden wagons can roll over them, or go for swims in handy harbors while unconscious.

->'''Mrs. Pottsdam:''' Was it...suicide?\\
'''Sheriff:''' Never heard of anyone pulling their own spinal cord out before. Off the record, I'd have to say no. No...all in all, I'd say this was natural causes.\\

-> But the worst was yet to come! While King Jon the Mostly Absent and Skip the Other High Priest laughed off matters of justice that occupied their own domains, Colin the Rogue King was found by his guards to have suffered a terminally fatal mountaineering accident in his living room. Colin II the Rogue King's Son grew suspicious, rightly believing that his father would never have attempted to throw himself upon so many climbing spikes while tied to a chair buried in a vat full of concrete suspended from the ceiling--at least not while he was sober. Colin II began a spy operation to learn the identity of the person who supplied the climbing spikes, and soon found to his surprise that it had been the king of Ghoere, His Royal Highness Darth Adolf Saddam Nikita Khomeini "It's Nothing Personal" Bates I, currently occupied in building roads across Ghoere so his soldiers could more easily reach and oppress the populace in the manner to which they were accustomed.

->Here and there, you fudged a report when an [[RabidCop overzealous cop]] [[PoliceBrutality went a little too far]] with a perp, or when the [[CorruptPolitician mayor's office]] didn't want an investigation into a suspicious death. The "clear suicide" ruling for 38 stab wounds was perhaps the most absurd, but pressure from the DA to wrap up the case quickly meant that you never made it to the stand.

->''There were a lot of suicides. Walking in the night-time alleyways of [[WretchedHive the Shades]] was suicide. Asking for a short beer in a [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame dwarf]] bar was suicide. Saying "[[SiliconBasedLife Got rocks in your head]]?" to a [[AllTrollsAreDifferent troll]] was suicide. You could commit suicide very easily, if you weren't careful.''
