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.

Almost all hunts go through Cairo, for people who can unlock; if you don't go there, I'll get you some coffee-chocolate :)

'Cesca, I already got you some of the famous coffee from a contact of mine there. It's really something. I hope you'll love it. If you get to Cairo, however, tell him my name and he'll give you a special price :)

I just checked in to The Oasis and there you are again Sal in deep conversation with Pierre. I wonder if Aurelia and Lilith have something going on that we do not know about ;) Why don't you stop by later at the Owl and Walnut for a drink and we can compare notes ;)

It's working!! He's actually working on his hunt!! ;-D

*Lobs some more tidbits after the Minx.*

....

Ah hell. He just saw the London tea merchant.

:-(

No, Bud, she doesn't have any bacon.

*Sigh.*

*Lays head on desk. *

Oh, what I'd give for a nose-deaf bloodhound right about now....

;-)

The notorious criminal Count Atticus Drake was brought to justice by Bela Talbot III after a painstaking hunt in which the heroic detective successfully tracked the villain around the world.

And ^ that's after 9 cases' worth of "Not the Holy Man". I perked up then, but after that it all went downhill after Captain Obvious manned the game, giving precious gems that went "Is a Man (Duh!) "North of the Bank" and around 5 more "NOT the Holy Man" clues...apparently, Captain also thinks I'm deaf :)

I'm sure the third day is when all the captures start coming; come on, people! Get those Sacramouches, and those Beetles and those Moths and those Spiders! (Why are they all insects??)


Oh, and the Icebergs, and the Whip Hands (coz it's plain villainous if you have a bad attitude; and can't you just see the evil glint in those Stillettos, and of course, the Lazy Eyes :) And EVERYBODY related to the judiciary, of course :)
