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! ;)

Congratulations to Richard Galt, the winner of the tournament! It's nice to see a relatively new hunter show his face in the community and bask in the limelight too! :D

Ctown, you never go down without a fight. As always, you put in a valiant effort. Be proud, Old One! And I think I know what the problem was: you forgot to wear (only) your lucky cape! *shudder* ;)

Thank you once again to everyone who participated. You're really the ones who made this happen. I hope you had fun and made new friends along the way. (And also plotted to burn down Cairo...)

Now, onto the prizes. *drumroll*

As promised, Richard Galt, you will be getting a 300k prize, as well as a very special item prize. Ctown, you'll be getting a 100k prize for being so close. I'll PM you both about the details.

I'm glad to have been able to be your host for this tourney. If people are interested, it's possible to organize more, unique ones. Just let me know. Until then... *rushes off to chase more Villains*

Congrats Richard! As Riza said it is nice to see a newer face win one of these competitions.

congrats ctown on your valiant effort to win this tourney. You certainly had a challenging road to travel to get to the finals. I heard rumors that the pirates have hidden your ear trumpet in the catacombs beneath the Cairo pyramids.

Finally thanks Riza and The Vidocoq Society for sponsoring the tournament. I had a fun time participating on the field of battle as well as meeting a few new friends.

I think we nned to set up a charity in Sleuth for aging detectives so I could donate my prize money to it.

With all the abuse I've taken from the reporter perhaps something like,

DATALS

Detectives Against The Abuse of Legendary Sleuths!

After all, I am a legend in my own mind.

Thanks Riza for putting this together!
