People of Sleuthville, lend me your ears!
I call out now to all you tomb-raiders and treasure seekers! To those who love the thrill of a good treasure hunt!

In the spirit of friendly competition i propose a challenge.
This challenge will require 10 adventurous detectives to be split onto 2 Teams, each team consisting of 5 members, in 2 newly made Agencies of my own making in NY.

These two agencies will compete against each other in Treasure Hunts.
The first team to get their agency to 7,000 Fame wins:

$200,000 Prize to be split among the team evenly.
(Working out to $40,000 a piece for each teammate...not too shabby huh?)
Also each team after the contest ends will vote amongst themselves on who alone among their team was MVP (someone who went above and beyond, did a really excellent job, etc) The MVP's from Both teams will win a 3 month gift subscription from me personally.
You also win bragging rights and honor for your home agencies on being an awesome treasure hunter.
Whether your team chooses single or multi-city hunt strategy is entirely up to you.

Obviously this competition will run for a while, (I'm venturing a guess at anywhere between 2 weeks to a month depending on how luck smiles on you or how good you and your teammates are).

It goes without saying that you would be required to resign temporarily from whatever agency you are currently in to join my competing agencies for the contest. You are allowed to enter an alternate detective if you wish if you're too attached to have your main detective leave your agency, and the only rules are:

1) Absolutely NO Password Sharing.
2) Only one entry per contestant
3) Have fun.

I want to know who among you treasure hunters really has what it takes to come together and co-ordinate as a team to truly be the best.

(Cont'd)

After speaking with Jason about it, I'm withdrawing my alternate profile Ed Carlyle and replacing him with myself.

Alright people im about 99.9% decided on who the teams are made up of. But i know some of you plan on entering with an alt detective so before i announce who is assigned to what team id like a little clarification from some of you. So any of you who are using an alt and HASN'T let me know yet, please do so. As of right now i have the entries as:

Biggie528 - Biggie which detective are you using?
Autumnsprings
Andiyana
Zanjana
Serges - Jay which detective are you using?
Molly Maltese
Summer Daze
AraLives
Ms Helen - Em are you using Sleuthbot?
Dogberta
Kesla
Carrie Mehome
Fillemaligne
Beef Flaps
M. Lacrimosa
cfm
Dedektif Cingot
Guiltfinder
Arctic Blast
Jesse Hunter

I wont announce the teams just yet until i know 100% about who is entering as who. When i DO announce the teams i want everyone to know that i did take faction standings into account, but i also had to consider a few other things when making the teams. I'm pleased to say everyone in the contest is capable of AI cases and has all contacts- Which is important. Right now im at 20 people in the running. I still have 4 slots available for anyone still wishing to join. Remember to clean out those apartment case files, work on raising your faction standings (this is important) and be resigned from your current agencies July 14th to start the 15th.
