Sleuth March Madness
  <<First Page  |  <Previous Next>  |  Last Page>>  


Mar-1-2007 13:41

In honor of that lousy waste of a month February being over, I have decided to hold the first-ever Sleuth March Madness Tournament!

The premise is pretty simple. We compile a list of 64 of the game's most recognizable players, seed them into a tournament bracket, and allow Sleuthville to vote for the "best" in each matchup.

Rules for eligibility:
You must be subscribed and over 30 days old
You must PM me with your intent to enter the tournament or to nominate an eligible member for the tournament. If you are nominating someone, you must also be subscribed and older than 30 days.
Entries and nominations should be messaged ASAP. As soon as we get 64, the seeding process will begin and the matchups will be posted.

After the initial bracket is filled, I will post a few matchups here every day. Then, the people involved in those matchups will have an opportunity to say "anything" on this thread that they feel will allow them to advance to the next round of competition. Sleuthville votes will be what decides the winners, and voting information will be coming soon.

The overall winner of this tournament will receive $100,000 sleuth cash.

Please begin sending your nominations and entries to me ASAP, and good luck!

Miss Violet Parr adjusted her large purple hat and prepared herself for her fifteen minutes of instant fame. She smiled at the reporter who sat opposite her, as he eyed her with intense suspicion.

“Who are you?” he asked.

“Why, I am Miss Violet Parr.” She smiled.

“But I mean who were you before you were Miss Parr?”

“I assure you Mr. Reporter, that contrary to what many may think, I have been no one before Miss Parr, and thus I am relatively new –only 90 odd days old.”

“Aha – you seem to be pretty at home here for someone new.”

“My integration within the community is due to both my interest in the game, if you will, and to finding such great friend through it –Lady Coco Cola.”

“So why should anyone bother with your existence again?”

Slightly irritated Miss Parr swallowed before she answered calmly. “Well… I have been very active on the stage, taking my acting career very seriously. I was promoted to Director relatively early on as well. I also try to be as welcoming as possible to new comers attempting to afford them the same hospitality that was afforded to me at the very start by Mr. Jojo, Miss Coco, Mr. SS, and Mr. Shoot7, in the hope that this community continues to grow and prosper.”

“Acting you say? But I see you are up against a legendary actress in her own right, Mrs. Breitkat.”

“Indeed, I am aware of that fact. I also hear she is pregnant, so I send her my heartfelt congratulations and best wishes. She and Dave deserve all the best. Breit has not only been a support for me on the stage, she is the main actress which I share all my work with.”

“So you expect to lose?”

Miss Parr pressed her lips together tightly. “No comment!”

“So can the media expect a nervous wreck, a total mental breakdown from your side once the results are announced?”

“No…” Miss Parr’s voice had dropped an octave. “…but I foresee some physical breakdowns on your part, if the path you are taking with these questions does not change.”

Lindy Sue who, hmmm....., what to say......., hmmm.......

Well, then. Let`s wrap this up then....

I would like to vote for Lindy Sue who. Who is right now probably sleeping with here nose in book.

She is the one that told me about this site and thus I thank her for introducing me to this world of mystery and intrigue that you may find in the real world but run from. (Or maybe that`s just me)

So once again thank you, and good luck..:D

As I sit here madly pondering what I should say that might "allow me to advance to the next round of competition," I come up with the same thing I have since the start of this tournament....I haven't the faintest idea. (sigh) So much for rousing endorsements. Oh well.

I would like to say this, though. As we proceed through these Awards of Recognition, I have maintained since the start of it, and will continue to believe until the end, that each and every one of these nominees is a Winner. All of them are among the best that this community has to show, and they wholeheartedly deserve the appreciation they're now getting.

Some are incredibly brilliant, some are amazingly creative, some are gut-bustingly funny, some are benevolently generous, some are compellingly effective leaders, some are the people who hide in the background, but make sure that nothing gets forgetten. All of them are extraordinary people, and we as a community rarely stop to take the time to thank them for their efforts.

It has been a privilege and an honor to know these people, and to share my life with them. I am deeply honored, humbled, and indebted to be in their company.

I wish the best of luck to all of the nominees in this Tournament, especially Miss Violet Parr. She is truly a Lady, and I do not deserve her kind regard, though I very much appreciate it.

Thank you all. ;-)

I shall leave to other my endorsement, but I have to talk about one person in particular on this round, and that is Ananke.

Ananke is one of the most dedicated, sweetest and just damn hilarious people I have met in this game. She is self-less and has been my mentor since I came to Sleuth. I know she tends to stay quiet in the boards, but she absolutely ROCKS behind the scenes. So please, please, VOTE FOR ANANKE!!!!!!!

I'd like to say a few words about Ananke and Andrea.

I wasn't going to get involved in all this, but I can't let their nominations pass without supporting them for everything they have done to make The Hitchhikers: London the competitive agency it is. Their dedication to treasure hunting and teamwork have been the inspiration and soul of the agency.

Ananke was one of the first members of The Hitchhikers: London. She has been responsible since the beginning for its success. Quietly and never seeking credit, Ananke has spent months running the agency from behind the scenes. She is always helping new players, whether it be with money, cases or advice, and I and the others have always been able to count on her. I trust her decisions more than my own. Even when I haven't been drinking.

And Andrea... well, I've heard the rumors about the so-called "MistressX". Her alleged enthusiatic whippings. Her week long spells celebrating successful treasure hunts in the agency's Champagne Room. And the things that she has been known to do for a treasure hunt break the laws of men and God. I will not dignify such rumors. Even though they are all absolutely true, I shall not stoop to address such outrageous (though factual) claims.

However, I would like to say how lucky I feel that Andrea chose to join Hitchhikers. Her treasure hunting enthusiasm is infectious and joining her shameless love of hunting is one of the reasons I love the game. She's one of the funniest people I have the privilege of playing with and I know her activity on the boards and chat make her an asset to the community outside of our agency.

Ananake and Andrea deserve to win this competition because they play the game like it should be played. First and foremost, they play their cases. They never hesistate to help others and they love the game more than any other two people I know.

Vote for Ananke and Andrea!

Hope that violet scarf is lucky for you Miss Parr, violet has always been my favourite colour:)

Good luck to you both, and what ever the out come you'll both always be number one in my book.
