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! ;)

@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?

If my memory serves correct, one night in bar chat everyone had me up to 167 years old! Of course, my mind isn't what it used to be! ;-)

Loss of ear-trumpet no handicap
Soldiering on after the loss of his ear-trumpet in a bizarre cape related incident, dedicated senior sleuth ctown28 bravely declared that 'a little less hearin aint gonna effect me none'. When asked by our intrepid reporter where the Villain he was hunting was last seen, our pantheon of alertness answered, "Oh about 6 o'clock, eggs and bacon, though that's a mighty strange question for a fella to be asked." And on that note we wish all our contestants the very best of luck.

HAHAHAHAHA *composes self* Excuse me. ;)

Oh god, I read that too! This "intrepid reporter" is a heavy hitter. I love it!

Is it true that when someone has a sense that is deficient, the others are heightened? :)

The notorious criminal Lord Alaczar Boucher was brought to justice by ctown28 after a painstaking hunt in which the heroic detective successfully tracked the villain around the world.


So what does our intrepid reporter have to say now? ;-)
