Attention ladies and gentlemen, at the request of several players, I am proud to announce the Sleuthville AVH Tournament 2011! *trumpets blare and streamers fly*

The format will be 16 detectives, randomly paired off into teams of two by a third party, to face one other team. For this competition, players going through Cairo will have a day taken off their totals. The winning team will be the one with the lowest combined number of days for hunt completion. Failed hunts will not count against you. You will not be disqualified. If you fail your hunt and would like to start another, you may, but the day count will start from the official start date of the round. Irene will be tracking progress using her new program, so this can be considered as further testing.

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 (enforced only by the honor code):
-use sidekick cases (for either clues or travel)
-enter second/third detectives, etc.

The winning team(s) from each round will go on to the next round until a winning team is determined. In the case of a tie, both teams will move on to compete in a triple threat pair matchup. The last team standing wins. Anyone who would like to join, please POST here. Participants will be gathered on a first-come, first-served basis. The first matches will start on Monday, April 25, 2011.

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 as soon as possible.

AVAPT Protests in the Streets
"Crime SHOULD Pay!!" a Placard stated frankly, during the first of many planned protests by the 'Archvillains Are People Too' co-operative. "Ve are here protestink the unkind way our loved ones are beink treated by zis 'orrible Riza 'awkeye voman... an Archvillain Tournament indeed! Ve ave rights you know!" Spokesperson for AVAPT, 'reformed' philanthropist Baroness Magda Malatesta informed the gathered media. "Zis is not ze last you ave eard from us" she wailed as police led the Baroness away for questioning over a number of unresolved jewelry thefts.

And some say that nothing ever happens in sleuth ville!

I will join in, but I will NOT agree on failing a hunt in order to see if the next AVH will be better.

On the other hand, I am not too worried about someone else wanting that to happen with them either. :-P

If I start one hunt, and get to the first city, and start getting repetitive clues. - I might get the idea of failing this hunt to try to start another one, BUT, I will then loose all the effort that I have put into the current hunt, as well as new cases to go through Shangri La to get my next AVH. - and, I cannot be sure that my next hunt will be without repetitive clues.

The more cities I have finished in my current hunt, the more costly it will be to start over again. - I know about nobody else who can do 2-days captures than Lady Jas and Riza Hawkeye, and then I am pretty sure they are using sidekick cases...

So, failing a hunt to start over is generally a bad idea, BUT, if it's your only option, I see nothing wrong in allowing it.

After a long long time this person comes from the ashes of boredom and strain only to find himself born anew with skills comparable to the great masters............. He makes his stand on the field of VH tourney........

*remember last time loss -- scampers away*

Riza walks in all happy to see few brilliant members already joined. But she spots one scampering back runs up and to him and glares...

"okay ma'am I shall participate" he says... hoping to get some really extra super ally to help him in his hunt... YAHOOO... !!!!

Hello lads and lassies.

Like ercule, I suffered an early exit in the last tourney - my Irish luck failed me as it was my first hunt through Cairo, and that was my undoing. Since then I have honed my skills and I am game to give it a go again.

For any interested, I'll host a sendin' off party at the Owl and Walnut the night before.

AVAPT finds Unlikely Support
In a strange scene, AVAPT Spokeswoman Baroness Magda Malatesta and Sgt Clancy O'Leary of the NYPD stood proudly, and somewhat defiantly, together on the steps of City Hall posing for photographs for the Press. "Gumshoes... they're nothing more than glorified Vigilantes', Sgt O'Leary stated coldly. "Criminals should be left to us professionals, eh." "Quite so", the Baroness chimed in, "Why the criminal fraternity of which I was 'once' a part of, always spoke with great fondness of the proud efforts the New York Police Department took to try and apprehend our members. Why I'm sure in time, " the Baroness continued graciously, "our proud boys in blue may even have caught one of us.. err them." The gathering was then interrupted by a violent coughing fit emanating from none-other than Sgt O'Leary, and was disbanded shortly thereafter.
