Greetings, people of Sleuthville! The time has come once again for the annual Sleuthville Arch-Villain Hunt Tournament. This year, in an attempt to change things up a bit, I’m happy to announce the return of the one-on-one matchups! Oldies and newcomers alike are welcome to participate. What better way to stave off boredom than a little friendly competition?

The format will be 16 detectives, each randomly paired off by a magic baseball hat to face one other person. For this competition, players going through Cairo will have a day taken off their totals. The fastest player(s) from each round will go on to the next round until a winner is determined. In the case of a tie (same day capture), both players will move on to compete in a triple threat matchup. 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. The last one standing wins.

The rules:
- 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, 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, 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 may:
-travel to Shangri La the night before, but NOT start the hunt
-use a travel kit
-use head of faction privileges
-use agencies and apartments to swap gear

Good luck and repeating clues, as less as possible!

Personally, I have no problem telling Yuji :) I'll send a PM to her if everyone else agrees.

It might be a little bit against the trash-talking part, but what else is rule-bending for? :D I'm only not doing it because Kallan beat me to it :D

Each clue has a kind of key word (the exact word might or might not be in the clue) that, when you "ask the townies about it", will give you an idea as to who the co-conspirator might be. The key word thing works like the Scholars of Shangri-La; only some words will do. So if you get "the co-conspirator likes X", you get the general idea from the sentence and try out a few keywords till you get the right one. Some townies will respond positively, some negatively, and you can use all the clues to get down to the co-conspirator. In Cairo, you *always* need five clues, every time, before you can safely find a co-conspirator. It's because it's unique in this that going through Cairo will get you a day off your total day-count in this Tourney.

Did I say I wouldn't say anything? I don't remember that...this ^ is my non-spoilery version :D

To all of those who already answered Ms Han's question thank you, it may be a competition but we don't have to be cut-throat about it. BTW a big congratulations to Ms Capone who according to the City News nabbed her Villian in one day, most impressive indeed.
Good Hunting To All
