Everybody has had mentors and hero’s throughout the years in this game. Someone who has touched your life in such a way that you’ll never forget them. Private moments shared that nobody knows about, but you’d love to tell. Though some acquaintances have been brief they are note worthy of mention. Then there are those ’s who are “Celebrities” in our eyes. “Legendary Detectives,” who not only affected you, but everybody that knew them, and yet their presence is still felt, though absent from the message boards. Great detectives retired or no longer active, but missed. Well, lets bring memories to life by paying tribute to them.

Without a doubt my two hero’s are the King and Queen of Sleuthsville, Ben and Sunny Ringold. From the first day I joined Sleuth, I was honored by their presence and through the years formed friendships. One great memory I have was when I called Ben and Sunny at their home one evening, all upset and crying. I was in a panic and in desperate need of their help. You see, after I left the first agency I joined here to start my own, one of the members left to join mine. I done everything I could to discourage her to go back, but she wouldn’t hear of it. This resulted in ill feeling against me. I started receiving hate mail from one of the directors, which soon turned X-Rated. The language was so defensive, I became an emotional wreck. Desperate and crying I called Ben at home. I’m sure when he answered the phone he didn’t know what to think of me, but he was kind and assured me that he'd check into it and see what he could do. Well, all I know is the harassment stopped and I was grateful. Through the years I have often thought about this and it's kept me smiling. By the way, if they didn‘t think about getting an unlisted phone number, they should have. *Wink*

Well…you’re very kind to consider “help” our little conversations now and then, but you’re welcome nonetheless. Now go hunt’em down!

Aah, Joey, whether your help was a little, or a lot, what you said encouraged me to keep on trying. Since it was my first hunt, I saved all the messages from those who were helpful, so I could later thank them, and here's one of the messages you sent to me,

From: Joey "Bulldog" Bane

Romania, and you?

Don't give up on the hunt. You'll like it when it ends and want more. They get easier in time...or rather you tend to get used to fighting for solving cases like a pitbull...hehe.

The really good shoes don't come from VH hunts, but only from Cairo University. You need to spend some skill points for them, but seeing your experience points I doubt you'll have a problem with that. Actually...VH prizes don't include shoes at al...so I hope you didn't have high hopes in this direction.

But indeed you can get good items from the prince and upon adding them together you'll really feel your pesuation power increase.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

You see, you're being too modest, and your message came when I needed it, for I was fixing to quit. So because of you, and those mentioned above I did try again, and today I captured my first Villain, yeah..........thanks my friend!

Another name that was most helpful during my VH hunt, was you Sean King. I am going to add your message here, like I did Joey's, in case it's helpful information to new comers.

Hey, DaRu. Sorry, I was away for a bit. Larry the Toe won't help you with your VH, so ignore him. Keep going for the clues.

Therefore, Sean, your name belongs on my little Plaque, as follows:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


There are many others who were helpful to me during my 1st Villain Hunt, so on this on this 7th day of February, 2012, I DaRu, hereby honors these Agents, as follows, to-wit:

Joey -“Bull Dog Bane,” Night Queen, Lady Jas, Lady Zeugirdor, Pumpkinking, Riza, Summer Daze, and Sean King

Ok, Some of the names I am going to mention I didn't know well, maybe shared a few passing PMs, but their contributions on the boards when I started were awesome and their presence is missed:
Crunchpatty
Biggie
Sleuthgirl Ciara - <3 <3 <3 (and Marc, short for March)

Also, for a few who are still around now:

Anikka - the Contest Organizer Extraordinaire
Secret Squirrel - Moderator with a nutty sense of humor
Lady Jas - Kindest Director an agent could have
Treschaude - worked with me on my first team Villian Hunt
Breitkat - helped me out when I was just getting started

I miss our Crunchy too Jas. I was just talking with my spouse today, who is also Texan, in this game, about how much I wish some of the old players, would return. I can't help but wonder where they are today and how they're doing. By the way, I must say that my biggest hero in this game is Texan. He's always allowed me to play as much as I've needed, and even all night long if I desired, and no matter how many agents I have created throughout the years, he's allowed me to subscribe them as needed. He's the best hubby in the world. So hugs and kisses to my sweet Texas man:*

Ctown-- my dearest, my bestest friend EVER!! I'm thankful for this game for allowing me to meet you. Yes we are always picking on each other daily, and goofing off but in all seriousness, you truly are a dear one to me, and I'm proud to call you my bestest :) I dont play the game anymore but Im glad our friendship goes way beyond the game.....and its a lifelong thing that I wouldnt ever trade for the world. Cheers to you bestfriend! Luv ya! As for being in your agency, DPI, there we some excellent memories made there . I had alot of fun there and all the roleplaying we did within the agency. During the end, before I stopped playing, it was just that fun, and you who was keeping me in the game :)

Joey "Bulldog" Bane ---- LOL, thank you for the compliment and for the mention. I truly enjoyed roleplaying with you, and I'm glad that I made a friend in you. Even the toughest guy like you has a nice side! Who would've known? ;)

Kopper-- Another that I still consider a good friend, and had alot of wonderful conversations with!

Violet Parr--- I loved RP'ing with you . You were fantastic and one of a kind. Very classy and elegant!

Ms Cevasco -- dont talk to her anymore but still consider her a dear friend! Loved Directing Behind Closed Doors with her. its where we first met :)

There are others who I'll never forget but those are the 4 that stand out to me. There were alot of great memories made here, and I still come back from time to time to read message boards. I do miss playing the game, and roleplaying but now, its nice to just sit back and read others nice stories :) It was fun during the time that I did it!

This game will always hold a special place in my heart --- and who knows, maybe sometime I will come back and play. Ctown, better have room for me in your agency. I think its getting time to stir up some trouble in the halls of DPI. What say you? ;)

Hope all are well. I do miss the community!
