Greetings, citizens of Sleuthville! The time has come once more for the annual Sleuthville Arch-Villain Hunt Tournament. This year’s tourney is being held a month earlier than usual so that we’ll have enough time in the Fall for other fun planned activities. The format, just like last year, will be one-on-one matchups. I welcome and encourage all old and new players to participate. Drag yourselves out of those doldrums and come enjoy yourselves with 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

Congrats to glasse and Kachenka! And here I was hoping :P Good luck to those still hunting; may your cities decide to release you from their repetitive grips soon today.

I was rather hoping to shoot off to Cairo at the end of the hunt, and scoop a glorious draw by finishing it today. Alas, it wasn't to be. Congratulations glasse, even if you have cruelly chopped off some of my limbs and left me to die next to a pile of lava. It's going to be difficult for me to design future sleuth content without limbs you know.

Arch Villain Nabbed!
The notorious criminal Trickster Faakhir Glock was brought to justice by Cordelia Falco after a painstaking hunt in which the heroic detective successfully tracked the villain around the world.

Congrats, ctown! I thought I might be on a winner when I got to the third city by the end of day one, but another infuriating 'west of the tailor's' run in London had me scuppered.

I am now going to put my feet up and commune with my parrot. Good luck to everyone in the next round!

The notorious criminal Natalya "the Mosquito" Dimitrijevic was brought to justice by MamaTerra after a painstaking hunt in which the heroic detective successfully tracked the villain around the world.

Yay! The clues were with me in Shanghai! 3 cases, 3 clues. It was all I needed.

Nonsense, Yeti! You're more machine than man now, which means you'll work tirelessly and without human foibles. (But seriously, good game! I just got super lucky.)

And congrats Cordelia, Kachenka, and MamaTerra!

Pft. Did Luke Skywalker get super lucky when he shot a photon torpedo into the Death Star? Bad example, of course he did, nothing else could have accounted for the Empire building a planet destroyer with that kind of flaw to the design. The true power of the dark side of the force seems to be losing spectacularly, and thus the force willed it to be this way.

Good point about my new robotic powers too.

Great news everyone, I've just caught my villain. On my very last case, which were I still in with a chance of staying in this competition I wouldn't have been able to use as it's a side kick one. Personally I think the villain captures of glasse and I are just too close to call and thus we simply both must go through to a knock out round. Except glasse's detective probably has the flu, so thus only I can go through.

Where do we stand here? Unless I'm missing something Bela and Kackenka have a draw and will face off to advance.

Mama, glasse and myself move on. Do I have to wait to beat glasse in the semis or can I beat her this week?
