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! ;)
Congrats, Richard Galt!!! Be sure to let us know what the very special item prize is :)
I would definitely be interested in participating in future competitions!

Thank you Ctown, it really has been a pleasure (and challenge).
Thanks to Riza Hawkeye and The Vidocoq Society for sponsoring the tournament.
And thanks to everyone else for the well wishes.

Congrats Richard, well done :-)
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,
Detectives Against The Abuse of Legendary Sleuths!
After all, I am a legend in my own mind.
Thanks Riza for putting this together!
That's my agent! Richard Galt. I knew he could do it ^=^. Congrats Richard, you can expect a nice "win" message in ur inbox from our agency ^=^.
And well, the DATALS sounds great Ctown? (Grabs pen). Where can I sign up? ^=^
Thanks Riza for putting this together. I had a lot of fun.
Good going, Richard. It's a grind, but it's worth it in the end.
(item prize will happen, I promise. Just give me a chance to reinstall a whole heapa programs. I have anew computer and I have a lot of catching up to do :))
Well done to Richard and ctown for making this an interesting hard fought competition.
