Since getting more than one is very difficult and less likely, why not a flat bonus per suspect or weapon, instead of a stacking one? That would A: be easier to explain, and B: avoid spiraling-out-of-reach problems entirely. Keep in mind that each room is attackable from more than one direction.

You've shown that you have a good eye for the graphical detail, so put that to one side for now, until the gameplay is sorted out. Instead of the fancy graphics, work on a slightly more basic schematic until the rest is sorted.

Give the players a single protected starting position so that it’s more like the board game. (This will cause you no end of grief with gameplay).
Add another territory to each Interrogation room. (No need).
I like the legend theme. I’m smart and can figure things out as long as the information is there. (even though I like it and understand it, not everyone on the site has an IQ over 50).
Things look pretty good the way they are. (If this was true, you would not of started the thread).

In fact, with such a high decay (which isn't easy to decipher in the legend wording btw) there hardly seems any need, as holding The Motive will be difficult in any case.

Do you have a suggestion for what you think they should be?
I can lower them, but I thought that these values were comparable to something like Das Schloss. I expect that a typical progression through the map would be from the Crime Scene to Weapons/Evidence, then Suspects/Interrogation and finally The Motive. At each stage, a player would presumably be getting a larger bonus, so having to defeat more neutrals would make sense.
That said, I don't think that the difference between 6 neutrals on a weapon and 8 on a suspect is so great that it would preclude someone from going after a suspect before a weapon if they wanted to play it that way. My hope is that the combination of higher neutrals and a larger bonus for the Interrogation rooms will balance out the risk/reward equation for the two types of rooms, and avoid there being only one "correct" strategy.
