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! ;)

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!

I have received the prized headwear:
The Pith Easy.
For the winner of the 2010 Arch Villain Tourney. It's rumoured that Lawrence of Arabia, or at least his camel, once drank from this helmet.
Toughness Test Adjustment: 5, Smarts Test Adjustment: 1

Thanks again to Riza Hawkeye and The Vidocq Society for sponsoring the tournament, and all of the participants and well-wishers.

You know how you write something and then write "lol", next to it and someone then takes you seriously... > 'Pith Easy' :D

Looks good though, even if I do say so myself :)
