So summer's coming to an end and we're all heading back to school or work or our otherwise busy lives. Our fun's at an end, right? Nope, not at all. We Sleuthies can always have fun! And what better way to wrap up your summer than with a little good old-fashioned competition? ;)

The time has come for another Villain Hunt Tournament, hosted by myself at the request of several people.

The format will be 16 detectives, each randomly paired off by a third party to face one other person. There will be no distinction between those who have access to Cairo and those who do not. 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. Failed hunts automatically disqualify you for the round. The last one standing wins.

Anyone who would like to join, please post here or PM me. Participants will be gathered on a first-come, first-served basis. The first matches will start on Monday, September 6, 2010.

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 (for either clues or travel)
-enter second/third detectives, etc.

Basically, you're on the honor code.

Each following round of the competition will start on the next Monday at 0:00 sleuth server time, unless one of the matches takes longer than expected. In that case things will be adjusted accordingly and you will be updated.

I will not be participating in this contest, but will be acting solely as a judge, in order to give some of the new faces out there a chance to show their stuff! ;)

Updates/announcements on the pairings and results of each round will be posted both here and on the Vidocq Society website, under the appropriate link: http://sites.google.com/site/thevidocqsociety/

As in any friendly contest, trash talking is encouraged! (though for some reason these tournaments often lead you to meeting new people and making new friends) ;D

Please PM me with any questions/concerns. And remember, the most important thing is to have fun! :D

I assume because I don't really know what you are talking about I'm not qualified to participate. Would love to know if I'm wrong (have never done a Villain Hunt).

Peach, anyone who is able to begin a Villain Hunt should qualify to participate in this Tournament. If you have the ability to start a Hunt, you qualify (even if you've never actually done one).

Personally, I think you should do a Villain Hunt first, to see what they're like, before you enter a Tourney. However, that's merely my opinion. If you're feeling more adventurous than cautious, go for it!! It's all in fun, anyway :)

Thanks Anikka, I got a very helpful reply from someone (I believe it was Riza-can't remember at the moment). I can hunt a villain anytime Anikka? How do I start that? Probably should get contacts in all cities first (my agency advised that so I think that is what I will do) but I'm anxious to do my first AVH!

I'm just sick that I have to pass...
