Do you have what it takes to outlast all others? Do you think you can rise above the rest and stand out as the ultimate contender? Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen to Survivor: Sleuthville!

10 Detectives enter, face off against each other in a different challenge every week, and the last left standing will be crowned Sleuth Noir Survivor! The winner will walk away with a one-year subscription to Sleuth Noir and bragging rights over the entire community. The rules are simple:

1. The first ten Detectives to post an entry will be entered and placed on two teams of five.

2. It's advisable to be subscribed. Some of the challenges may require travel, and if you can't participate, it's likely your team will vote you off at elimination. I won't bar anyone based on this, but it's your call.

3. The losing team at the end of each event will have to vote off one member. To do that each team member will submit a PM to me, which will remain anonymous with the name of the person he or she is voting for, and a short reason why. It can be as simple as-

Name: Heimlich VonVictor
Why: He didn't write any of the poem. It's no wonder we lost!

4. Challenges will be one week long and a winner will be announced at the end, in the event of a tie, a coin will be flipped.

5. Anyone may enter including mods, editors, or even Ben and Sunny themselves if they so choose.

6. The contest will begin when all ten detectives have entered and been placed on teams. It will conclude after nine weeks of elimination challenges.

That's all! Get out there and outwit, outplay, and outlast!

Heimlich, Aknas thought she sent hers yesterday morning before starting her cases. Once I saw your post here, I took another screenshot of her detective page and sent it to you (even though she had already played one day's cases). I'm hoping she will have the first screenshot saved on her computer and can attempt to send it to you again.

Wow, I must say that I am surprised with the results this week. I was expecting people to do their twelve to thirteen cases a day and maybe get a few off of another detective. The competition was fierce this time around! Let's have a look at the scores:

Comanche
Miss Snopes- 532
Violet Parr- 216
Aknas- 288
topkebab- 0
TOTAL: 1036

Lenape
Ms Helen- 640
Riza Hawkeye- 682
ctown28- 119
Joseph Zeo- 463
TOTAL: 1904

That's a total of 2,940 cases played between eight contestants! That's equal to 245 days worth of normal case load! Average cases per detective per day was 52.5 cases. To reach this number, on average, 35 detectives worth of cases would have to be played every day.

Congratulations to all the detectives who went above and beyond in their competitive efforts during this challenge. A special congratulations to Riza Hawkeye who solved the most cases. Your reward is one vote token. Use it wisely. Lenapes, you have won immunity once again. Comanches it was a valiant effort, but it looks like I'll be seeing you at elimination once again. Please PM me your vote and reasoning for the vote within 24 hours.

Congratulations everyone, for SURVIVING the challenge and is still somewhat sane. The past week had been a difficult and trying one, but it was also a test of will power and fellow sleuth bonding [Of course there were more than 8 contestants involved; hence the begging and borrowing in the title of the challenge] (^^)

I really want to thank everyone who helped and supported both teams in giving us freely your cases (which made us stay up all night doing them :P ), and of course those who actually help doing some for us. Both groups were simply amazing.

Comanche, what you put in was beyond words. Great job! *deep bow of respect* You put up a really good fight and i am sure both teams were stressed beyond our imagination. I guess we're all so relieved that it's now over (^^)

Just a small note about myself benching for the next challenge, whatever it will be. A huge project in RL is at hand (and it almost collapsed this week). I really need to focus on my work. I shall return to Sleuthville by Nov 8-9, so the timing is almost perfect. I will come in to check up on PM and this board though, if i'm still alive. Have a wonderful time this coming week, and Heim, please be easy on us!

I just have to also commend the efforts of my tribe and the very hard work they put it in. This was a very difficult challenge, for me especially since I have a general aversion to playing cases not involved in a Villain Hunt.

This was a very hard one Heim and I will not understand how puzzle solvers keep themselves motivated to work so many cases in a single day.

I personally think that 'Grin & Bear It' would have made a much suitable title to challenge -and would have certainly prepared us more as to what to expect!

Welcome Comanche once again to the tribal council ceremony. This is our third elimination ceremony, and for the third ceremony in a row, our eliminated contestant has gone AWOL shortly before the voting. I can only surmise that someone is slowly kidnapping fellow contestants with the intention of getting ahead in the competition! Oh no! I would be nervous if I was a contestant, but as I’m the host, I’m sure that the kidnapper realizes there can be no prize awarded without me!

Ahem… the votes have been tallied and two things are for certain: Firstly I should highly consider witness protection after that last challenge, as several contestants have expressed a desire to castrate me with a plastic spork, and secondly, the third person to leave the island is… topkebab.

tk, your team felt that your absence contributed to their loss in both this and the last challenge. Still we’re gonna miss you. This one’s for you tk:

With that, 1/4 of our contestants and 1/2 of the Comanche tribe have been eliminated! The next challenge will be posted shortly from my undisclosed safehouse somewhere in the South Pacific.

CHALLENGE #4- A Storybook Story

So you’ve made a name for yourself? Phone ringing off the hook? Everyone wants you to solve the murder of their opium dealer? Great! Why should I care? What is grasping my attention about the cases that I’m solving every day?

If you’re like some detectives, you open an AI case, quick scroll to the bottom and click continue, click on crime scene, find all of the suspects, analyze the PE you have the contact for, and then throw it in the agency case files with a note like “need tailor, SM, banker”.

If you’re like others, you read every intro that comes up and they add an element of fun and intrigue to the case. Some detectives I know even save the intros of their favorite intro authors in a word file to read over later on. Your mission is to add some flavor to the cases we play every day.

How do we do that? Why it’s simple! You’re going to write mystery intros for the next week! Yes, indeed it’s another writing challenge! The rules are simple. The tribe that submits the most good quality intros in the next week will be declared the winner. At the end of the week, tribes will e-mail me a document at sleuthnoirsurvivor@gmail.com that contains all of the mystery intros written, complete with author’s name and mystery intro number. Intros are due by 19:00 Sleuth Time on November 6, 2009.

I just submitted an intro shortly before posting this. Therefore, I will let everyone know right now that their intro numbers should sequentially be higher than what I just submitted :) Likewise, once time is up I will submit another intro in order to benchmark the acceptable range of numbers. An editor has been so kind as to offer to verify all introductions as well :)

What constitutes a good quality intro? Well let’s think about it like this, if an editor reads your introduction and then wants to scream out in pain & headbutt a cactus in frustration, it’s probably not good quality. Spelling and grammar do count. For submitted bad quality intros, your tribe will receive no points and you will receive a strike against you. Receive three strikes against you, and you’ll be the recipient of the coveted Golden Diaper award, which subtracts one point from your tribe. If you’re afraid of becoming the all-time winningest Golden Diaper recipient, I would advise having someone on your tribe do some proofreading before you submit your intros.


Reward: The person who writes the most good quality intros will receive the coveted Golden Quill Immunity Award! How does it work? We’ll save that for once the winner is announced. All I’ll say is this is something that every player should be vying for.

Lenapes, you must bench three tribe members for this challenge. Please decide which tribe members will not be participating.

Good luck tribes! Get out there and outwit, outplay, and outlast!
