Game Instructions: This will give you some progress that scales with the number of Accomplices you have.

Unlocked with  6

Wiki note: The multiplier on accomplices for progress seems to be about 1.5, but there is variation whose parameters are currently unknown.

## Success

Memorable accusations

Faced with such public shaming, the target [...] flees to his townhouse. He drinks heavily that evening. The wine [...] is poisoned.

## Failure

Plausible deniability

The crowd is insufficiently large, [...] Without these factors [...], the target is free to pretend that he did not hear; that the words are not meant for him [...]

The target hurries home, but [...] He does not partake of the carefully poisoned wine planted in his pantry.
