The Arch Villain Hunt

Choose two detectives from your team. Those two players will do an Arch-Villain hunt, with the usual rules applying for a tournament. Both detectives have until Wednesday, August 10, to capture their villains. Hunters may travel up to Shangri-La the previous night (Wednesday, August 3), but ANYONE who starts a hunt before Thursday, 12:00, SST, will be disqualified (so make VERY sure you don't do it). Scores will be determined on a team basis, and by days, not time (people overseas won't have to be up at odd hours of the night to deal with Server times this way). Anyone traveling through Cairo MUST either post it on the boards, or send a PM to Riza or Breit announcing that they are (we WILL be verifying that). Sidekick cases are banned, as usual. Apartment and Agency gear is legal. If, for some reason, there are technical issues with the servers, all hunters will be given extra time to complete their hunts.

An individual hunter's number of days will be counted up, added to his/her teammate's number of days, and the lowest combined sum will be the winner. The first TEAM to capture their villains will receive 10 points. Second team to capture will receive 7. Third will receive 5, and fourth will receive 3. All teams receive 3 participation points each for each AV hunter on their team (I.E. - 6 points total).

If, for some reason, you guess wrong, and fail a hunt, DO NOT QUIT. Go back to Shangri-La and start over. BOTH members of the team must capture in order to receive placement points. So keep going (even if you takes you four times, voice of experience talkin' here ;-).


The Cairo Scavenger Hunt

For the other two detectives from your team, you will be going to Cairo (big surprise there ;-). You need to complete ten favors from EACH of the townspeople in Cairo, in no particular order. Once you have completed a favor from a townsperson, you MUST make a screenshot at the end (completion) of the favor, like this:

A few things I would like to address:

1) I'm tracking the VH portion of this week's competition, so please PM me if you're going through Cairo so I can give the proper deductions. Thanks to those who've already done this.

2) I would not suggest reading an entire RP thread in preparation for next week, as that is quite time-consuming and you need to be focusing your attention on other things right now.

3) Whether you want to send me the screenshots all at once or one at a time is up to you. All I need for that is the name of the townie and what the prize is, nothing else.

Here is a site where you can upload your pictures. It will generate a shareable link.

Any other method of image-sharing is also acceptable. I'll be around for tech support if you need it. Just shoot me a message.

Hey Riza,

Thanks for the clarification, appreciate it :)

I didn't intend for any misunderstanding regarding point 2, I only meant for people to check out a portion of a story (first 2 or 3 pages max) to see how an RP works, get a taste of it - I now realise that my message seems like people should read a whole story and that would take hours, if not, days. Time which can be better spent on nabbing those villains or grabbing those items!

Again, I'm still offering helpful tips and points to those who have trouble with writing an RP - part and also, before I forget to mention, this will stop when the RP challenge begins, as to ensure that everyone has a fair shot at it :)

Riza, would you like an ice-cream waffle as well? It's not a bribe, you know! Just something to enjoy as you keep on watching the contestants break their backs on their tasks :)

Since you're in Holland, Vulkie, could you send me one of those waffles with pink icing? You know the ones they sell in Amsterdam in the little food stalls that cater to coffee shop tourists who get the munchies.

Vulkie I think that's a good idea! A lot of people aren't really sure how RP goes, and i don't think they should be at a disadvantage just because they've never done it before. I think reading the first few pages should be enough to give them an idea of what's expected. And knowing what's expected is always helpful. Reading an entire story or two would not only be time consuming but could also be overwhelming.

I don't consider myself very good at RP so I will probably read a few pages to bone up on it. Assuming my villain gives me a chance to breathe.

I'm coming for you Weasel!!!

The google docs thing would be good too! They're pretty easy to figure out so I think everyone would be able to do them. And it would give you a place to "store" them, so you know who you've done favors for and don't end up sending Riza 3 barber screenshots, 2 shoemakers, and a rug merchant.

Sal Iva is chasing a pirate queen. How exciting! I want to see her picture when you capture her Sal. :)

I'm just chasing a boring old prefect. :/

How's the toothache Autumn?

Just to clarify. Agency and apartment cases are legal for the scavenger hunt, but are they allowed on the AVH?

They would be if you could access them, but the system won't allow you to. So good luck with that. ;-)
