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.
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? :)
can I get a time frame for how long someone who enters is going to be locked into the competition (if they progress)
Should be interesting!
I'm throwing my fedora in the ring.
I'm in :)
Thanks Riza for organising this, and for dropping me an invite. Unfortunately, I must decline :)
Good luck to all the contestants and have fun! Go bring those villains to justice!
My thanks to Ms. Hawkeye for organizing this event.
I would love to join in.
Riza I would love to join. Good luck to all!
Anyone know if this is still happening?
It's 7pm here right now, and I'm getting to the end of my playing day. I'm assuming I need to save my last cases so I can can travel to Shangri-La before I log off, but it would be nice to know for sure!
Riza should be on a little bit later to post the final info, but no I don't know any reason why it wouldn't be happening. She's been prepping for it on our agency message board all week so I know she hasn't forgotten it! I would say go ahead and travel to Shangri-La...unless you're paired with me, then you can wait until tomorrow. ;)
