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! ;)

A fascinating duel takes shapes as Detectives joyfuljones, Richard Galt and ctown28 prepare to immerse themselves in a three way battle of wits for the prestige of being Sleuthville's most competitive Villain Hunter. Does that old sleuth hound ctown still have the stamina and vigour to keep up with his younger, fitter, more attractive competitors? Can age triumph over beauty?! Only time will tell. And the City News vows to be there to report it.

I will show these young bucks what stamina and vigour is all about. Now what is with the younger and fitter thing (OK, I'll concede the attractive part). Sounds to me like we have a biased reporter! ;-)

Now what we need in this tourney is some trash talk.....

garbage, refuse, debris, filth, dirt, grime, junk, scrap, litter, sediment.....

@ctown: Haha I was going to post about that but I saw you already did. It was pretty funny. It made you sound ancient, no? o.o

GL to everyone.

I though the good folk at the City News had reported the story quite generously.

The rumors of my ancientness have been greatly exaggerated! ;-)

LOL , does that mean your not older than dirt? ; ) Guess I'm still looking for someone older than Methuselah. (According to my hubby that would be me!)

Good luck to the three remaining contestants.

I like the odds of beauty over age. Anyone know where the local bookie is located?
