A surprising promotion turns out to be a nightmare for your friend.

"Mayor Covet had been planning a conference about his ending term of office, and Lowry, serving as his new assistant, hardly coped with the position."

SolutionEdit

Detective: Oh, hi there, Sam! I heard you got a promotion? You're mayor Covet's assistant now?

Sam Lowry: It's a disaster! There are so many responsibilities, and I'm barely coping! Mayor Covet's term of office is ending soon, and he's planning a big conference.

Sam Lowry: I know I need something spectacular for the conference, but I'm at a loss here. I don't know what to do. And the mayor is too busy to talk to me!

Detective: Something spectacular, you say? Hmmm. Maybe I can think of something.

WitnessesEdit

Detective: I'm not very into politics myself, I don't really know what would make mayor Covet shine at the conference. Maybe I should ask around.

If you fail:

Detective: It's really not my thing. I bet Sam will do better without me.

If you win:

Detective: Huh. It appears Sam is doing a pretty good job, but he still misses one, important thing: a speech that'll seduce the crowd.

Suspect identification: Immortal TalentEdit

Detective: I know what are you missing, Sam. A speech. Don't you know any speechwriters who used to work for mayor Covet?

Sam Lowry: I suppose there was someone working on the mayor's speeches... I'll need to ask around the city hall.

Solution: Alie Reed

If you fail:

Detective: This is useless. Without a professional writer, I won't be able to help Sam.

If you win:

Sam Lowry: Yes, that's her: Alie Reed. We just need to find her, and...

Detective: Uh-oh. You might want to read this.

Sam Lowry: An obituary? Oh no, she died in a car crash just yesterday! Now we'll never get the speech ready in time!

Detective: Maybe we still have a chance. If she had been working on the speech, maybe she left a draft somewhere behind.

Crime scene search: Final wordsEdit

Detective: This is where Reed's house should be. Maybe I'll be able to find the draft of the speech.

If you fail: Detective: I'm afraid everything Alie Reed wrote is gone. I won't be able to help Sam now.

If you win:

Detective: What's this? Reed's notebook... she wrote down the draft for mayor Covet's next speech. This is great! I need to take this to Sam!

City search: Perfect TimingEdit

Detective: The conference is starting soon, and I can't contact Sam to get an address. I only know the mayor supposed to give the speech after an artistic performance of some sort.

The mayor's conference is:

  • exactly 5 from a barber
  • more than 3 from a pub
  • more than 1 from a restaurant
  • more than 2 from a hotel
  • On the map there are 2 restaurants

Solution: (4,5)

If you fail:

Detective: Oh, no, the conference already started. It's no use delivering the text now!

If you win:

Detective: Excuse me, sir. Sam Lowry has a speech for you.

Alphonse Covet: I was just wondering if he had managed to scrounge something up. Hmmm... It's really great! Now excuse me, I need to read this thoroughly.

FinaleEdit

If you fail:

Detective: I'm sorry, but I couldn't make it. How did the conference go?

Sam Lowry: It was't[sic] that bad, but I think mayor Covet is disappointed. He wanted to do something earthshaking, you know.

Detective: Don't worry. Maybe you'll have a second chance.

If you win:

Sam Lowry: You did it! You delivered the speech in time! The mayor was delighted. He asked personally for you. And, I got a bonus! I'll split it in half with you!

Detective: I'm happy it all worked out. The promotion isn't so bad as it sounds, eh?

TriviaEdit
