Greetings, fellow Sleuths! The time has come once again for the annual Sleuthville Arch-Villain Hunt Tournament, where experienced detectives and newcomers alike come together to show off their villain-nabbing skills and make the city a safer place. What better way to spend a hot summer day than with a little friendly competition?

The format will be 16 detectives, randomly paired off into teams of two by a third party, to face one other team. (This hunt will go forward only if there are enough players participating [16]. If not, the tournament will be cancelled altogether.)

The rules:

- As soon as you are matched up with your partner, please POST your team name on this thread.
- Either PM me or POST here as soon as possible if you find that your hunt goes through Cairo, so I can keep accurate records.
- In the spirit of competition, trash-talking is allowed and encouraged, just as long as it is friendly and appropriate.
- You may not PM me to ask for any AVH hunt help or advice.
- If you are unable to compete in a round for whatever reason, you are allowed to ask someone to sub in for you for that round only. This privilege may only be used once per team, and only in emergencies. The player who is subbing in for you may be anyone who is not competing in the current round, even someone who was not initially entered in the competition.
-You bear the responsibility of making sure your partner shows up. No replacements are allowed in this case.

You may:
-Travel to Shangri-La the night before, but NOT start the hunt
-Use a Compact Travel Kit
-Use head of faction privileges
-Use agencies and apartments to swap gear

You may not (enforced only by the honor code):
-Use sidekick cases (for either clues or travel)
-Enter second/third detectives etc.

I reserve the right to disqualify any player from this competition at any time for breaking any of the rules or for behaving inappropriately. All final decisions rest with me.

The winning team(s) from each round will go on to the next round until a winning team is determined. In the event of a tie, both teams will move on to compete in a triple threat pair match-up. The last team standing wins. For this competition, players going through Cairo will have one day taken off of their totals. The winning team will be the one with the lowest combined number of days for hunt completion. Failed hunts will not count against you; you will not be disqualified. If you fail your hunt and would like to start another, you may, but the day count will start from the official start date of the round.

Anyone who would like to join, please POST here. Participants will be gathered on a first-come, first-served basis. The first matches will start on **Monday, June 3, 2013** at 0:00 Sleuth Server Time (SST). Each following round of the competition will start on the next Monday at 0:00 SST, unless a match takes longer than expected. In that case, things will be adjusted accordingly and you will be updated as soon as possible. All further announcements will be made by “The Announcer”. Please check this thread regularly.

And now for the part you've all been waiting for: the prizes!

Members of the winning team will receive:
-Matching custom item prizes
-$100,000 Sleuthcash each
-Bragging rights for the next year

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to PM me, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I hope to see you all at the starting line. And most importantly, have fun! :)

I would like to wish you a very successful tournament. Last year’s event was great with a lot of participation and a lot of fun.

Just a small remark….rule “If you are unable to compete in a round for whatever reason, you are allowed to ask someone to sub in for you for that round only. This privilege may only be used once per team, and only in emergencies. The player who is subbing in for you may be anyone who is not competing in the current round, even someone who was not initially entered in the competition.”…is a rule that should not have appeared in for numerous reasons.

But this is only my way of thinking so…enjoy and have fun and lets the best team win
