OK, here's a tiny "conspiracy" or maybe urban legend.
The Greekie hicks believe that if you wind up in Vorbarr Sultana, you can make a little extra money on the side by capturing
cockroaches, and taking them to the nearest Count's home. They'll pay you for them, especially if the cockroaches have some mutation
(like white spackles). But there's one small faction that believes "bounty system" is a trick to get people to make money for the already-
rich Counts. They believe the cockroaches are actually full of platinum, and If you collect enough and know the right people, you can
take them to the platinum collectors yourself. But then, the Counts will take note via their hidden cameras, and track you down, and
send their goons after your platinum. "Vor means thief."
You know, coming up with a proper conspiracy is tough! My hats are off to all of you!
