We’re all excited about the newest addition to Sleuth! In anticipation of the upcoming launch of the USS Sleuthetania, we hereby challenge all sleuths to a launch party contest to celebrate her inauguration.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to finish the story of launch night. We’re giving you a scenario below, and we’d like you to respond in character. Tell us what you see, hear, do, and experience, from the time you arrive at the dock, view the Sleuthetania christening ceremony, through walking down the gangplank, up until the ship sails out to sea. The more imaginative and creative, the better!

-The Rules-

*One entry per person, please.

*Spelling and grammar DO count, so please use the appropriate tools, and edit, edit, edit.

*For those who think this is a ‘role-playing’ contest, we’re looking for what your character specifically does. Whether you choose to interact with other players is completely up to you. You MAY choose to keep your entry entirely to yourself (ie-without contact with others), and still have a very interesting story to read. Get innovative! You CAN do this!!

*There’s a 6000 character maximum limit. That means 3 boxes. We recommend you use a word editing program and copy-and-paste your final entry into sleuth. This avoids problems such as others posting in between your boxes, timing-out, etc.

*ALL entries are due NO LATER than turnover, Monday, June 2 (11:59:59pm). No exceptions.

*NOTE: Because we have no way of knowing exactly when Admin’s launch will happen, we’ve used some creative libel here. Whatever Ben’s come up with will be wonderful, of course. But we’d like you to stick with our version for this contest, please.

*I'm not the only judge, but my decision is final. In case of disputes, talk to the hand. ;)

-The Prizes-

1st prize Sleuth $150,000
2nd prize Sleuth $75,000
3rd prize Sleuth $40,000.

Ok, here we go! The scene is set...

Do you have a winner yet? And where did the bear come from? :-P

OK, whats a story about a ship without a parody of "Gilligan's Island"

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful trip
That started for DPI
Aboard this brand new ship.

A Director was not a sailing man,
Another was demure.
All detectives set sail that day
For a three day tour, a three day tour.

The passengers then acted up,
A crime spree was involved,
If not for the skills of the agency
The case would be unsolved, The case would be unsolved.

The team met up on board of the grand Sleuthetania
With lilangel
And ctown too,
Bonelady and topkebab,
Aunt Pittypat
Miranda, Andy and kymkatt,
Here in DPI.

So this is the tale of the agency,
They're here for a long, long time,
Some say with ctown running things,
It's an uphill climb.

The Directors of the agency,
Will do their very best,
To help the other detectives,
To meet their objectives.

With hairs, with threads, with threatening notes,
And all of the footprints,
Like all the other villains,
The killer will be caught.

So join us here each case my friends,
You're sure to see a crime,
Solved by the detectives,
Here in DPI

Wow :) That just made my night! Thank you so much! I showed it to one of my friends and she asked me, "So what happens next?" and on my way to work I was wondering, "What does happen next?" If I can work it, you may have just read the intro to my next scripted mystery.

Congrats Heimlech and thanks to tk and the judges, this was yet another fun contest to play. I can't help but thinking though.... "If I had posted the Gilligans Island one as my official entry, would I have come in first? ;-)
