Hello fellow sleuthers! It seems to have been a while since we’ve had a contest. We here at Blue Pagoda have come up with a little one for those who have a few minutes to spare between Sleuthing, real life, and Villain Hunting.

THE PREMISE:
We would like you to choose ONE of the four candidates and write their bio for us. Their names or faces are known throughout Sleuthville, but we know so little about them. So, delve into their past and tell us what you think happened to bring them to where they are today in Sleuthville. Your choices are: Big Lucy, Shady, Larry the Toe, and the Magnifying Glass Lady who introduces the Faction twist.

THE RULES:
1. Spelling and Grammar DO count.
2. The limit is 3000 characters, which is the Bio limit for every detective. (You can see if it fits on your detective bio before you post your entry here.)
3. It must be in the time frame of Sleuth Noir, around 1920.
4. One entry per detective, writing their own entry. Proofreaders are fine. Collaborators are not.
5. Open to subbed and unsubbed

THE PRIZES:
1. First Place -" a special prize" by the Sleuth Admin or $50,000 sleuth dollars
OR
6 month subscription to unsubscribed player
2. Second Place - $25,000 sleuth dollars
OR
3 month gift subscription to unsubscribed player
3. Third Place - $10,000 sleuth dollars
OR
1 month gift subscription to unsubscriped player

DEADLINE:
October 9, 2008 at 23:99 sleuth server time.

THE JUDGES:
Will be announced after their decisions have been made. Volunteers are welcome. Please PM Lady Jas if you are interested in judging!

This may sound like a dumb question, but the no collaborators makes me ask. With it being stated one per detective, does that mean that I can have separate entries for each of my detectives? I don't want to be DQ'ed for collaborating with myself! ;-)

You can have seperate entries for each of your detectives if you chose so.

What is not permitted, is someone posting an entry and having another person besides themself work on the entry.

How many of you have got your writing caps on already??? This is hopefully going to be a good one, as the last couple that were done, barely had any entrants. Be creative, and we encourage you all to not just do the popular ones ;)

Thanks Jas, new question.

If I have a proofreader, and that proofreader says I think you should change "Shady walks into the bar" to "Shady enters the bar" does that DQ me?

No that does not disqualify you, becaue they are proofreading, where as a collaborater will have help write a good majority of the story.
