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)

Zan, beef, everyone i just want to say if anything i said came across as personal, then id like to apologize. I feel like i might have upset you guys for two people to leave the contest over it. I didn't mean to upset anyone or make anyone quit. Sorry.

Jesse Hunter from The Raiders completed the search for The Lost Cenotaph of Kathmandu. The Raiders received the $5000 reward and 250 fame for finding this treasure.

Good job on your first Treasure, Raiders!!
Congratulations :)

glad I'm not just amusing myself, though, I admit, that's usually enough.

Kesla/Biggie - Thanks for the props to the Raiders. We thought we'd start with the smaller hunts, as we're still... uhm... er... letting the dramatic tension build before for the big full court press. (yeah, that) But then - WATCH OUT. ;-)

I agree with Jason & Ara - loving the reporting.

I do hereby rescind my praise of earlier reportin'. I have been MISREPRESENTED in the rag that passes for daily news around here.

On my honour, I did NOT refer to the Crusaders as "a team of over-inflated egos, surviving on the back of the hard work of a few gifted individuals".

What I said was, "They're purt near all a bunch of big headed, self-absorbed, knuckle draggin' ninnies, with the exception of MAYBE one or two that I might take the time to kick dirt on if'n, y'know, they was on fire or somethin'."

That's the problem with the press these days. Y'all are always putting yer own spin on things.
