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.
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.
:( I hope she gets better soon!!!
Best wishes to Breit. I hope all is well with her.
Congratulations to the winners of this round! I wish I didn't have to drop out of it, I love a good competition as well as the next person. Life happens, I guess. :/ I'm rooting for you all!
Still here (barely ;-). Dunno bout lucid. I do wish my head would behave itself once in a while. ;-D
Thank you to everyone for the good wishes!! Hope y'all are having reasonably good luck on your hunts!! See ya (sometime, I hope :-. ), at the finish line!!
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
It's best to get it looked it. I collapsed at work a few years ago and they thought I had a brain aneurysm that had ruptured. As it turned out I was suffering from migraines and it was the first that I was diagnosed. It didn't help that they ran a brain scan and then put me in a bed and put the TV on to the news about Ted Kennedy's brain tumor surgery for an hour, but everything worked out for the best.
I'm glad to hear that you still plan to participate Breit. I wish you the best of luck and the best of health.
Seconded - best wishes, Breit, and hope it all gets resolved in time for St Patrick's Day revelling!
Gopher to the Sleuth Gods
Glad your back Breit and good luck with your hunt!
