Long Live the Fun VH Tournament
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.
-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! ;)
Judging by your brain-twisting, brain-torturing and devilishly hard new mystery, there's nothing wrong with your IQ, Joe :).
I'm in too.
JZ, try trading in the cheerleader outfit for some smart gear! ;-)
Rosamund, i wrote that scripted mystery like, probably last year, i think. I haven't been myself since March (the Case of the Real Body Snatcher...)
ctown, there's no outfit that can save me, what's (happily) 'bothering' me is from deep within (my tummy), i just didn't realize it would suck my IQ away.
Anyway, i should be back to my old self by mid-November if the books are right... but then, i don't think i can catch any sleep for at least another two months thereafter....
Only two months JZ? Hah!! I'm still losing sleep, and my youngest is almost 2. Congrats by the way!!

Count me in too :) yupppp
Hey guys.This competition sounds interesting.In fact,I wanted to enter it since the March Madness event,but I refused it due to other circumstances.
I accept the challenge !!.
At the risk of getting in over my head with the heavy weights or getting roughed up by the heavy hitters, I will make a run at it. :)
You know the Irish are scrappers and I care not how it ends as long as I can make a respectable showing. Don't think I have the EPs to go the distance, but ... All in good fun!
Draw the names and lets get on with it!
lol good luck to you all :)
If there is room for one more, I'll give it a whirl.
