    I don't think Muckingham can be in Oregon, the license plate has too many letters/numbers (6 standard in Oregon and 7 in the game) even on a personalize plate you are only allowed 6 characters so.....

    Really, Matt? you Have British Influence and linguistics, locations and vast wilderness and tree lines that speak more of a upper west coast area and you never assumed that Muckingham couldn't be - I dunno, in Canada? Where British pronunciations at at least until now, metric use is a lot more accepted? Where most of the population lives right around the border to the USA. Where a lot more wilderness is readily available?!

    The town isn't just literally dirty, it's also figuratively dirty. There is an underlying vein of corruption that runs through the whole town and not just the mayor and his cronies. You can see it rather obviously in the temple level that was added in 0.5. as well as in the texts from other levels, the Millers son is a volcanologist, surely he would recognise what volcanic ash and grime looks like? If yes, WHY DOESN'T HE COME FORWARD WITH WHAT IT IS? Why would he hire someone to powerwash his parents house along with something of his, knowing what volcanic ash does to the water supply? The mayors pipeline is no doubt going to cause the volcano to erupt, I can see that from here.
    I would ask you, with corruption that rampant, why would the corrupt mayor care that volcanic ash and grime is not being disposed of properly? The mayor himself hires you on more than 1 occasion, he clearly knows that the player character doesn't have the training needed for proper ash clean up, same with the national park warden and the like. I think the player is not so much a villain, but a bystander caught in the crossfire of the corruption.

    My theory was that the character doing the cleaning is somehow related to the mayor or someone working close to him that knows that volcano is about to wreak havoc in the town, so he made this company and made a lot of money out of the people who have no idea their lives are about to take a horrible turn so he can move somewhere else, where he can keep working as a power washing company that's trying to "rebuild" out of a tragedy, so he gets famous, hires people to do the work and cashes in on the profit. But your theory that he's the villain also fits pretty well.

    This is a joke but:
    The Powerwasher person or whatever you would call it is a ghost
    1: Does not get any damage from falling from great heights like a roof, neither does the game block you from going down
    2: Does not have shadow or any short of reflection
    3: Was not afraid of a ghost house since they are a ghost themselves
    4: Probably stays out of view from people while washing

    Two things. I'm curious as to why you didn't follow up on the Enchonian? I know there's an in-game explanation, but I feel like giving a plausible explanation is a classic trick to get someone to stop looking. Also it's weird that plumbers would use the literal language of angels to mark places. Second, what if the "pipeline" is actually to cover up the fact the volcano is about to switch to a vesuvian eruption? The mayor might not want to evacuate yet because of money lost, so he's waiting until the last minute. Like the mayor in Jaws but you know, something infinitely more dangerous. A pipeline would cover up a lot of things associated with volcanoes. Oh, earthquakes? Don't tell anyone but we're putting in a new natural gas pipeline, so that's from fracking. Gas? Oh, we're just trying to get the new pipeline put together. Smelling sulfur? New pipeline. You could attribute so many things associated with volcanic activity to a vague pipeline. So maybe you're not the villain but the mayor is.
