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.

You may:
-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.

Sidekick cases may not be used at all; no using them to get an extra case to play during the hunt and no using them to travel to the next city. So you would have to remain in your current city until turnover or travel partway to your destination. The reason I put this rule into place is that sidekick cases are gained by doing something outside of regular gameplay, and may not be accessible to everyone. Thanks for asking, and I hope this clears things up. :)

As a previous coordinator of these matches, each player with sidekick cases should end there day with the number of cases as they get for the sidekick bonus. I.E, for 2 sidekicks, I get 1 extra case per day. Right now I have one daily case left to play that will remain there as it would not be fair to my opponent!

Captured! Almost had a two day capture but Shanghai wouldn't have none of that! Damn repeat clues!

Congrats ctown!! I was so close though!! In my last city but out of cases...gotta love the repeats. Best of luck to all those who make it through this round!

*Slips Riza an envelope full of cash not to pair me up with ctown in the first round next time* ;)

Ok people, WHAT'S GOING ON??????? Three times now Breit's joined one of these things, and every single time, she gets thrown in the hospital. I'd make a comment on odds, but right now, we're trying not to do that. In any case, we're going to be a little late in finishing her hunt for this round... Have fun all.

Hello all again --

Thank you for your kind words and wishes to Breit. She really does appreciate them.

As for any naysayers out there who can't believe that she's been thrown into the hospital on each occaision that she's entered a villain hunt, I'm the one who threw her in there twice, including yesterday's 9 hours. This time, i'm not sure how much good it did, but at least it got someone to look at her migraine and run some tests. She is still hoping to be able to participate in this tourney and your March badness thingie, not to mention all the festivities for St. Patrick's Day.

Here's hoping her head doesn't fall off before March 18!

Thank you again. Not Breit
