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! ;)

Wow, I can't believe I actually forgot the most important part: the prizes!
*smacks forehead*

Things will be done a little differently this time. I will be awarding prizes on a sliding scale. The winner will receive $300k and the runner up(s) [in the event of a tie for second place] will receive $100k each. Also, the winner will receive another special prize, to be announced later. :)

Currently, since Rosamund Clifford has had to pull out, there is just one spot remaining. As soon as the spot is filled, I will announce the pairings for the first round. Anyone tempted by money/special prizes/bragging rights? First come first serve for the last spot, either by post here, by pm, or on FB.

I will post the winners of each round, any updates/changes, and other relevant information both here and on the official website which you can refer to:

I look forward to being your hostess and I wish everyone good luck! :D

Breit peeks in, brushing sand off her face. Missy sees Aknas and pounces, eager to greet her mistress' friend. She comes to the end of her leash instantly, and lets out a "rrrwwrr??", hopeful for a morsel of tuna.

Someone pulled me off a beach in Malta, and said I was needed??

Good luck everyone, and have a wonderful tournament!!

See you in Shangri-La, Aknas!! ;-D

Breit heads off for her apartment, muttering about snowboots and yaks.... ;-)
