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!

A very very big Congratulations to Riza, and also to JZ. I can honestly say that I had no clue which way it was going to swing, it had me guessing all night :)

I also have to say a very big thank you to Heim for being a survivor in his own right. It takes a lot of commitment to run such a big challenge and keep everyone interested for the duration. I think you succeeded without a doubt.

This has been wonderful thing for Sleuth allowing a lot of new friendships to form and a lot of new content to be added and thought about.

I PM'd my vote to Heim last night purely because I didn't have time to put my thoughts to paper. Now that I have the time I think Riza and JZ both deserve to know who I voted and why.

JZ - I had immense fun working with you in the first challenges and you have shown your full commitment to the contest throughout. You have won immunity week after week and clearly put your heart and sole into everything you produced. You are a fantastic team player whether it be in your writing, in the contest or in treasure hunts. And of course you are a fellow agency mate.

Riza - Again I had immense fun working with you in the first challenges. I think before the contest we had only spoken a couple of words in bar chat. The contest brought us together and since then we always seem find fun...and trouble whatever we're doing. You didn't win many of the later challenges but I think anyone can see you put everything into what you did and have provided some great content to think about. And of course I don't think anyone will forget how many cases you completed in 'that' torterous week.

I really struggled with this decision and at one point wanted to forfeit my vote because I didn't know which way to go. In the end I voted for dogged determination, so my vote went to Riza.

I have been following Survivor Sleuthville from the beginning. Wow, what an exciting game it has been! I don't participate or post a lot on sleuth threads. But this sure kept me interested. Congrats to Riza and good job to everyone.

Well everyone this is it. Congratulations to Riza Hawkeye, the very first Sleuthville Survivor. Congrats and thank you to everyone who participated. This has been a blast. Honestly I didn’t think this was going to go over well. I didn’t think we were going to be able to get the contestants, and I was afraid that people might drop out midway. That didn’t happen. We not only filled up quickly, but with some of the most well known and high profile players in Sleuth Noir. On top of that, everyone who participated had an absolute blast. It was tough, but it was fun.

Riza, enjoy your 1 year subscription. I hope it helps you to stay around for a long time.

Joseph, you will receive a 6 month subscription in honor of being Survivor Sleuthville’s runner-up. Congratulations on making it that far!

As far as the rest of you, I can only hope that the door prize and the experience itself is enough reward. You were part of something that has never been done before and did it well. Thank you for being a part of this contest for the past four months. I know it’s something I will never forget and I’m sure neither will you.

As far as season 2, well that’s yet to be seen. It’s certainly possible, and the interest in it from both this season’s players and from outsiders has been enormous. I may host it again, but if someone else wishes to host the 2nd season, be my guest! I may even try my hand at being a participant next time and be on the other side of the kneecap bashing.

Until we meet again my friends!

*waking up and see everyone has packed up and left*

Wow! (sorry i had a busy morning and missed all the action) This is amazing! The entire game had the drama and plot of well scripted mystery! I am really glad that Riza won. Her dedication to all the challenges as well as her characters made her a totally well deserved winner. *Hugs, shines her crown for her* Heim, thank you for hosting the Sleuth Survivor. This had been a really amazing experience and if there is a Second season, i'd love to be a judge for a change and let others have the chance to experience the turmoil, er, i mean fun and excitement. Seriously, this had been a great challenge to the body mind and soul, and i'm glad I've participated and that everyone have all Survived.

*Look at his skinny frame and ran to catch the bus that's leaving* I better gain some more weight now that it's over. Wait up!!

Boom shakka lakka.

The Sleuth Gods shake their mighty fists and cast lightning from the sky.

Ask me, humble slave to say: 'Ugh!'

oh and

'We givem Heimlich funny little stone statue, keep him out of trouble. Ugh. Time for foot massage boy.'

That last bit for me, being slave of Sleuth Gods not easy...

Ugh!

*stares at Squirrels post*

*blink blink*

Well.

Congratulations, Riza, and to JZ! This has been a fantastic competition, with a cast of both well-known and brave new faces around Sleuth. It has been fun, and apparently quite frustrating. Im SORRY for giving Heim the city contest idea. I just blurted it out! XD

I hope Season 2 happens, this was a blast to follow and the final rounds had me on the edge of my seat. Congrats everyone! Im so proud! *sniffles a little*

One thing I forgot in my previous post that I wanted to mention, and that's the fact that this contest couldn't have happened without the help of the community at large. The entire community played a part in this contest, whether it was our various judges, those who voted for a specific contestant, or even those who just came out to cheer the competitors on. I want to thank everyone who was a part of this. It couldn't have happened without every single one of you.
