Titan: Possibly Juliet, since they were going to get engaged. Definitely not Sheringham since he showed up out of nowhere.

...Or, maybe Morris jumped Sheringham because he was getting suspicious/heard Sheringham asking for a left handed teacup from Chris, had a Does Not Know His Own Strength moment of blind rage and killed him, (somehow, we never got an image of his body, just the hand) and ran off. I’m just spitballing here because I didn’t get sleep and am stressed about missing a quiz for school and all that implies.

Nah, Morris doesn't strike me as competent enough to commit a crime.

If he did, he wouldn't have left a crime scene so undisturbed as the one that was found.

Especially not with an actual doctor in the building.

I firmly believe that Morris is innocent in this case, (even if he got less than stellar qualities as a person, that is)

He might be tied up in a closet somewhere and waiting to be found.

You’re right. Morris is too dumb for that.

Maybe Chris did it? Who had the opportunity to do it? Wu?

I refuse to believe Chris is capable of harm. Breaking Morris' arm doesn't count, he had it coming

Edit: Holmes had it coming too, fuck him in particular

Sheringham, you mean, but why did he have it coming?

When a servant takes 30 of my quartz and don't show up, it's fair game. When they take 400 of it and give me Jeanne on the last roll they deserve to die

Ah.

Gacha-weirdness aside, I think we can rule out Morris as a suspect. He's too stupid to commit murder as was mentioned earlier. Juliet also has an alibi because she was willing to get married to Morris even though she didn't like him.

Aaron and Dorothy took their eldest son's "death" way too easily in my eyes. That makes me suspicious. Maybe Aaron realized that Chris was his son, didn't want a Jerkass like Morris inheriting, and conspired with his wife to get rid of him. Dorothy could have told Laurie to hide her necklace and then had Aaron set something up while she was making a big fuss over it.

I saw a comment on reddit where someone criticising the game's habit of emotionally manipulating people into wanting to spend money and roll servants by making them express a deep desire to be with you or come to chaldea. Its mostly a female servant thing (honestly I can't think of many male examples) so I never really noticed it much before, but thinking about it now they're not wrong. I think the most significant one I remember that I actually saw complaints about was Okita Alter

Can't say if I agree on that that much, but Okita Alter is probably the worst offender if that really is the case. That and Kama/Mara, though it could be people memeing her Villainous Breakdown.

Kama/Mara definitely felt more on the shitposting side.

Other examples the person mentioned was Ereshkigal who the game kind of beats you with her being trapped as a lonely existence in the underworld if you don't summon her and Sanzang, whose last moments in Camelot consist of her wishing she could be part of chaldea

If Galahad Alter does make it in to the Requiem collab, I wonder how different his voice will be from the Lostroom OVA

like maybe it'll be deeper?

For what it's worth, canonically, every servant is in Chaldea whether you summon them or not.

But it's still a scummy move.

I have the impression that Galahad is pretty boyish from his voice direction and appearance while Alter is less so in a vague sense based on appearance, which is why I was thinking it'd be deeper for Alter.

Ah that does make sense. Though somehow I expect him to have the same pitch just a bit drier.

[up]x3 definitely scummy but in the end it's mostly a waifu thing. They tend to use other means to trick you into rolling for male servants (mostly just by making them good characters)

I think Arthur was the most notorious example of husbando baiting with his Trial Quest.

Instead of focusing on relatives that divide us, maybe we should try to find the absolutes that tie us.

I just find it kind of manipulative with the whole "I'm so sad I can't be with you, won't you (spend your money) summon me?". Though you're not wrong with it just being business in the end. I guess it's not really that many steps away from just making a character super attractive to grab attention.

[up]x2 Arthur's a bit of a mixed bag since he just naturally exudes husbandos energy, though stuff like his connection to Romani (that didn't go anywhere) did make him a bit more desirable

So whats the draw line of "you know what, i feel for this?" Because if some weren't written that way, would they even be interesting to invest in.

Hard to say. I guess I'd put it on how on the nose they make it. Stuff like Mandricardo becoming best friends with the protag and Dantes stalking feel fine but Okita Alter's crying (which gets invalidated shortly after) feels a bit much.

I'd say Melt was okay? There's obviously a lot being done to make her desirable, but her actual utilization by the end of the event balances it out (though I personally wanted Passionlip more by the end)

I doubt we'll be able to have another opportunity like that for a very long time.

Fancomics are right - Chaldea must be a wacky place.
