CONTEST: Survivor Sleuthville
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!
Heim, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. It is such a blessing that he was able to have those he loved around him. You are in all of our thoughts and prayers.
Heim, I'm so sorry to hear about that. Its a blessing that he didn't suffer. But if there is anything I can do for you, let me know
Holly and me would like to extend our condolences as well for the loss of your grandfather. I know it can be a difficult time. I recently lost my grandmother several months a go after a long illness. May he rest in peace and the Lord be with you and your family during your grieving process.
Our deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences. I am glad his passing was easy and painless.
Death really are our last enemy!
I dream of the place where the death no longer exist!
Until then, we seem all to have to face death, either directly or through the ones we love. Your grandfather now are there, where there are no pain and no sorrow anymore, waiting for you.
I am sure that what he would want the very most, are that you will not be trapped with the temptation of closing off your heart, but that you will rather open it up, and continue loving your fellow walkers even more.
Dare to give your love to your dear ones, they need it now more than ever. And, your love is something the enemy cannot take away, it's your strongest weapon!
You are in my thoughts and prayers too, and, of course I extend my love to you. Still what matters now, and what I believe you need now, is something I cannot give you. Rest in peace though, that what you do need, is already inside of you and through your relationship with God. I pray that He will keep you up, as I know He is able. All I can do are pray for it to happen.
If there is anything you believe I can do for you, please don't hesitate to ask. I'll be more than willing.
Heim I am so sorry to hear about your grandfather, may he rest in peace. Jonny and myself are thinking of you and your family.
The fact you have managed to host this contest at such a difficult time in your life shows everyone how much strength you have. May that strength help you and your family through this tough time.
If you need anything at all, you know we're here for you.
It's always hard losing someone, but I am glad to hear that your grandfather was ready and was at peace. I hope the peace is extended to you and the rest of your family during this difficult time.
And, repeating what everyone else has said, if you need anything, let us know.
I'm sorry you lost your grandfather, Heimlich. His pain is now gone. May you find peace during this time of sorrow for you and your family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Welcome back everyone! I hope that all of you who celebrate Thanksgiving had a pleasant holiday. I also want to thank everyone for their kind sentiments concerning my grandfather. They are greatly appreciated by my family and me.
