Evidence Logging Tutorial

You pull your brand-new Pocket Gumshoe from your desk.

According to Maya's note, you log evidence using this device, which photographs it and sends the image straight to the Chief of Police. When it's done, you get a two-letter code back. This way, you needn't physically pick up and disturb the evidence.

"The evidence won't actually end up in your Court Record until the trial begins," the note goes on to explain, "since it takes time for the paperwork to go through. So you need to keep all your codes safe! Otherwise, you'll never be able to prove that you found the evidence in the first place!"

(I recommend Notepad or a similar program for this function; your list of codes will act as your saved game, in effect. It would also be wise to note down which two-letter combo goes with which piece of evidence…)

"Before you go into Court," continues the note, "they'll want you to give your compound code. This is all of the codes you've gotten, run together in alphabetical order. If you had the codes 'lb,' 'df,' and 'mo,' then your compound code would be 'dflbmo.' Let's try it!"

The Pocket Gumshoe resets and clicks into Test Mode. Following the instructions on the note, you retrieve three objects from the corners of the Wright and Co. Law Offices.

"Now scan 'em!" says the note.

1) A Jammin' Ninja pen; you never thought Maya was a fan of that show. Perhaps it's an artifact from the last case?

2) A paperclip.

3) A jelly sandwich.

The next line on the note: "Got it? Time to test you. Try entering your compound code now. This will show whether or not you've found all the evidence!"

(To submit your compound code, type http://gsintfanfic.wikidot.com/[code] in your browser bar, without brackets, substituting it for [code].)
