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.

Oh, my...
Breit, I was under the impression you were... nice.
I think I have made a big mistake.

SS, what about the distracting townies, and more importantly, the carnivorous cat?!!

And I loved all the posts in the News, and not just because it's a change of scenery :) And I LOVE the interview! :) However, I think my amnesia has been acting up, as I don't seem to remember saying any of that...

Grats Bela dear. Officially :)) since I already told you that in that letter I sent you. Loved the City News entry. I'm close behind you. Hopefully tomorrow morning, since I'm out of that god forsaken town. Finally

Still working through it. Had a little chat with pirates on my way to London, but here I am now. Still waiting to see if I'll go through Cairo.

Arch Villain Arrested!
The notorious criminal Lilith "the Spider" Adler was brought to justice by Carrie Mehome after a painstaking hunt in which the heroic detective successfully tracked the villain around the world.

Way to go, Carrie :)

Thanks DW :) She had an awesome first day, though, one that left me shaking in loafers, when she blitzed through three cities, just like that! :)

And unless you have Hostage Negotiation yet, I doubt this time will be the one you get coffee in Cairo; DW and I are waiting though :)

Yeah. My third city was in the same day, but then I got stuck in Cairo. Finally out, though, so you'll have to wait for 'Cesca and I'll come when I can :)
