Tournament of the Champions
Amidst the blare of Sleuthville's cars and the general noise of the city streets, Riza acends a cardboard box at City Hall, clearing her throat.
Annoyed at getting no response from the hundreds of detectives around her chasing murderers and getting drunk at the bar, she grabs Anais Nin, who is walking by, by the shoulders and whispers something into her ear.
Anais nods. A second later, a shrill shriek rips through the air, making many people jump and exclaim in surprise. Riza smiles, thanks Anais, and starts to speak.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the time has come once again for a Villain Hunt Tournament! Recently, seeing how contests are always fun and bring the community together--both spectators and participants--the Vidocq Society is honored to host the Tournament of the Champions.
What's that you say? You're not a champion? Pfft, who cares? What is a champion but one who rises to greaness? You all have the chance to obtain greatness and immortalize yourselves! Each and every single one of you. *points at everyone in turn*
That being said, anyone who wants to join, please post here. The match will start on Monday March 8, 2010 at 0:00 sleuth server time. Now on to the rules.
-travel to Shangri La the night before, but NOT start the hunt
-use a travel kit
-use head of faction privileges
-use agencies and apartments to swap gear
You may not:
-use sidekick cases
-enter second/third detectives, etc.
Basically, you're on the honor code.
The format will be 8 or 16 detectives, depending on turnout, each randomly paired off by a third party to face one other person. The winner from each round will go on to the next round. Same day captures are considered ties, and will result in a triple threat match. The last one standing wins.
*Already thinking of all the things I could buy for my apartment*
I'm in!! :D
Count me in Riza. I'll be going for my third straight opening round tie.
I would like to join in the fun!
What the heck, I'll try and give Ctown a run for his money. Gotta have somebody try and chase that invisibly Caped Crusader around the world. :-D
Well I suppose I may as well get a look at things from the contestant's point of view. In other news I've started wearing a helmet everywhere, as I'm told karma has been looking for me.
I'm in. Should be fun!
I'm up for that! Wouldn't want Anais to have sacrificed her throat in vain... :)
Sadly I have to erm... wash my hair...
Haha actually I would love to join in but I won't be here next week so I don't think I'll do too well, but when I get back I shall cheer (louder than Anais) from the sidelines!
Thanks for hosting Riza and good luck to all!
Gopher to the Sleuth Gods
Sounds great Riza! Count me in :-)
This sounds like fun, but can I get a bit more clarification on the er, proceedings before I agree to it? :)
