—Case Teaser

A Roll of the Die is the eleventh case in Starlight Shores and the fourth one situated in the Central City district.


In the last case, Chief Ramone told the player and Linda to oversee Roy Ketcher's campaign visit to the casino. When the player notices something strange, Linda and the player investigate the scene. They find the dead body of Oscar Vetterman slumped over a roulette wheel, his face with a green tint.

On the scene, next to Oscar's body, was a smashed martini glass. After fixing it the player took a sample of the poison. They poison used was arsenic and matched the arsenic found in the victim's stomach so they could identify it as the murder weapon.

During Chapter 1, Roy Ketcher was questioned after they discovered the body, John Stateman was also interrogated again after it was revealed he had ties to the Orient Walkers (a Chinese Gang in Starlight Shores) and Dayiu, the leader of the Orient Walkers. At the end of Chapter 1, Malcolm says he found something else on the body proving that Oscar Vetterman was a member of the Orient Walkers.

At the beginning of Chapter 2, Malcolm says he found a faded piece of paper with a Chinese Sigel on it, after examining the paper they find a letter from Dayiu inviting him into the orient walkers. Two new suspects were questioned; Madame Zhaong, owner of the Red Dragon casino and high commander of the orient walkers, and Aisha Stevens, an old friend of the victim. At the end of Chapter 2, Madame Zhaong says to the player and Linda that if Oscar's killer isn't caught by the next sundown the orient walkers would attack Central City.

In Chapter 3, the SSPD confronted Madame Zhaong about her threats but Zhaong still stood by what she said. The player and Linda were then called into the chiefs office and were told how grave the situation was. After gathering all the evidence the player indicated Aisha Stevens for Oscar's murder.

At first she denied the claims before breaking down in tears saying she killed the man she loved. She explained she had loved Oscar since college but when he inherited the family fortune he started avoiding her to hang out with more 'influential' people like Roy Ketcher. She had discovered he was going to be at the casino so she went there to finally confess her love for him but saw him and Madame Zhaong together. She then poisoned his drink as revenge. Judge Donovan sentenced her to 20 years in prison.

In the Vote of the Century (4/8), the player decides to do some more digging into the Orient Walkers and Dayiu. Roy Ketcher also asks for their help in a matter of importance.

Roy Ketcher assists their help as his affair with Olivia Dixon is about to come out. He says that he had plans in place but left them back at the Voting Hall. After investigating the Voting Hall they find a document with John Stateman's phone number on. When the player asks John Stateman if he can handle Roy Ketcher's PR he agrees, the player and Linda then tell Roy the good news.

In the second leg of the AI, the player decided to do more digging into the Orient Walkers. After searching the Chinese hop Dayiu runs they discover across a shipment record from the Red Dragon casino. The player and Linda swiftly investigate only to find a crate with rifles and guns in. After the guns history was analysed, Alice could reveal that Madame Zhaong used the casino as a cover to smuggle illegal weapons for the Orient Walkers. After Dayiu heard about the arrest she stated her hands were clean and that the SSPD were on thin ice.

At the end of the case, Chief Ramone storms in ordering the player to Starlight Shores' prison as Frederick Maragway had been murdered.
