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

Prizes!
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!

Cordy limps wearily into her office, throws her coat down on a chair and pours herself a large Scotch, vowing that she's not going to do anything more strenuous than talk to her parrot for at least a week. She sinks gratefully into her chair, and catches sight of the City News, deposited thoughtfully on her desk each day by the janitor.

"Arch Villain Captured!
The notorious criminal Trickster Dashiell Devlin was brought to justice by Cordelia Falco after a painstaking hunt in which the heroic detective successfully tracked the villain around the world."

She grimaces and deposits the newspaper in the wastepaper basket.

Nice going, Cordy. I would have done the same had I not planned on blowing the crap out of Shanghai.

Oops, spelling mistake. I meant the crabs out of Shanghai. :)

Oops, I thought I was out of the running so I started a new AVH yesterday just for myself. Do I need to cancel this one to restart on the 16th?

Nope - you can carry on with the current AVH, Ima. There was quite a group of us all tied for 3rd place in our category (you, me, Syn, Shawn, etc). See Night Queen's post above (Jan-14-2012 11:38) for full details). Good luck with the current hunt :)

Congrats to all the Dragons!

Sal Iva and Lady J both showed their resolve in successfully tracking down their villains. Good sleuths take on tough assignments. Great sleuths stick with their cases to the very end.

Great going!

Also, congrats to Cordy for showing her greatness.

Ima, congrats on your successful AVH! You did really well.

As a group, everyone did quite superb sleuthing. Only one failed AVH is quite a testimony to accurate sleuthing.

We are still pulling for you Cekuray and agniswarkhan. These two are still on their very first AVH's.

We are still waiting and cheering on for a few others too.
