If a character announces that she’s going to kill someone and then does it, we have the makings of a very boring murder mystery.

Not necessarily. Regardless of who announces their murderous intent ahead of time, the authorities are surely going to suspect Roderick. I would.
Roderick is far too adorable to rouse the suspicion of the “authorities”. What we need is an amateur detective and his sidekick to solve the case!
I don’t think he looks particularly cute but perhaps that’s just because he’s always sneering.
Did I say ‘adorable’? Oops! I meant ‘viciously conniving and utterly reprehensible’. Must have been a typo 🙂
“You see, Captain Hastings, the lady could not have done it; for by the time she arrived at the house, the victim was already dead!”
I was thinking more along the lines of Scooby Doo and Shaggy, but Hercule Poirot will do 😉
Quite true. If that Doyle fellow taught us anything it’s that the 19th century British constabulary, while dedicated and forthright, could not solve even the simplest of crimes without the aid of the local cocaine addict and his roommate. (I hear a lizardman once kidnapped half of London without getting caught! Of course, that’s probably just an urban legend.)
‘Urban legend’? My good sir, Unearth is no URBAN legend. It’s an entirely factual account of an anesthesia-induced hallucination.
