What: An Arch-Villain Hunt Tournament
When: Starts Jan. 9 (a Monday)
Who: Anyone subscribed: newbies, intermediate, and advanced players

Winners (yes, that is plural) will win 3-month gift subscriptions. If there are 7 or more in a category, runner-ups will win 1-month gift subscriptions. If you are just starting out or been around since the start of Sleuth Noir, there is a category for you.

Categories will be:
Jack Rabbits (sleuths with less than a million points)
Jackalopes (sleuths with less than 10 million points)
Old Dragons (8 figure sleuths)
Note: You cannot enter more than one category. Your category will stay with you as to where you are when you accept your round 1 mission from the prince.

Competition will be head-to-head. No teams, simply individual. Very simple. To reduce the blind luck factor, there will be playoffs as follows:
2-3 competitors: Best 2 out of 3 with all competitors
4-6 competitors: Top 2 sleuths will have a sudden death playoff.
7-9 competitors: Top 3 in sudden death
10 or more: a 2nd round will be announced where the top half will advance.

You can start your AVH anytime on January 9. Entries starting after that date will not count (except by special permission). If you fail your AVH, you are simply outâ€"so be careful. Subsequent rounds will start January 16. January 16 may be pushed back depending on the results of the 1st round. You are timed simply on the day you finish. NOT on the time of day. Don’t want anyone feeling like they have to start at a particular time of the day to be competitive. Only whole days will be counted, and YES, there may be ties. Any category must have 2 or more contestants to be viable.

Special Note: If January 9 is a bad day for you and you still want to enter this contest, please state so in a reply. Also state what date you can start. Reasonable requests will be accommodated, and only your total days on your AVH will be counted.

EVERYONE join in!

Old Dragons

We have quite a wonderful group of us Old Dragons. Not old by number of days, but old in experience points. (Some are old in both.)

We have the illustrious Lady Jas, THE number 1 ranked sleuth--and a dedicated moderator.

We also have two AVH T-Rexes: turtledove and Riza Hawkeye. These two each have to have large warehouses to hold their AVH accolades.

We also have the really talented Sal Iva. Then me. (I think I am the underdog in this category.)

Since there are 5 Old Dragons, the top 2 will have a sudden death AVH hunt. If there is a tie involved, there may be more than two, but it will still be sudden death in the 2nd round. If there is a tie for first in the 2nd round, then the tie will stand.

There are 9 in this category as follows:
Cordelia Falco
Shawn Savage
Summer Daze
Ima Vagabond
Anais Nin
Andrew Corelli

Note that it was pre-arranged and announced that Shawn Savage, Synesence, and Andrew Corelli are getting late starts. There number of days will be adjusted accordingly to keep things fair.

I am impressed with this group of Sleuths. As a group, they are fun on the message boards and eager to contribute in their respective agencies.

Please note that the top 3 will be admitted to a 2nd round sudden death AVH. If there is a tie, there may be more than 3 admitted. There will only be one sudden death round where hopefully there is a winner. There may be ties, and that is okay. There are prizes for 1st and 2nd places in the Jack-A-Lope division.

May the wind be at your backs!

Road Runners

Entries are:
Friday Robinson
Botsie Boots
Sherry Kola
Amira Diamond

There will be a sudden death for the top 2. Prize for the winner only. Yes, there may be a tie!

Please note that Sherry Kola and Amira Diamond only have done 1 successful hunt previous to this tournament. Botsie and Friday have each only had 4 successful AVH's prior to this contest.

We are all rooting that each of you are successful in nabbing your villains. So avoid wily coyotes. MEEP! MEEP!

Finally... Jack Rabbits

Entries are:
Vivian Claire
Curley Swirles
Little C
Fleur Veritas
Si Kosis

I am most proud of this group. Never have I seen an AVH tournament get any action from Sleuths just starting to tread into Almost Impossible cases. You are all VERY BRAVE! WAHOO!

Special mention to Cekuray, ThePumpkinKing, Curley Swirles, and Little C. These 4 have NEVER completed an AVH, yet here they are.

The other Rabbits in this group have either done only 1 or 2 AVH's.

Good luck to all of you. Make sure you are careful when you accuse the townie in each city. Sometimes it is easy to hit the wrong one with the slip of your mouse.

There will be a sudden death of the top 3, and there will 1st and 2nd place prizes.


PS: Almost forgot. Si Kosis will be starting late, and his count will be adjusted.
