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:

Arch Villain Arrested!
The notorious criminal Eugenia "the Mole" Panzer was brought to justice by Sophie4 after a painstaking hunt in which the heroic detective successfully tracked the villain around the world.

Nice work to everyone who has finished their respective challenges.

Now to get stuck into those Haikus :)

Basically, I believe all the teams are down to one person on the AV hunts, and A Race to Adventure on their Scavenger Hunt. I may be wrong on that (I'm not the Scorekeeper, after all ;-), but off the top of my head, that's what I see.

C'mon, Teams!! I see the Finish Line!! ;-D ;-D ;-D

We finished all. Mortimer is trying again to see if he can pull a 2 day hunt instead of 3.

So I have a quick question for the Chariots of Fire team. You were saying (one of you was anyway) that you should win the first event because your team was the only one whose name had anything to do with the Olympics (although that was never mentioned as a requirement.)

So my question is regarding your description. Especially this line, "But there's also the C of Charlie, a foe to be reckoned with during the Vietnam War."

What does that have to do with sleuth or pre-1940s Olympics? I mean the Vietnam War happened at least 16 years AFTER the time period we're set in (1939 or before) and as much as 36 years after. The dates for the Vietnam War according to Wikipedia: 1 November 1955 " 30 April 1975.

I just don't see the connection. especially for a team so intent on focusing on the pre-1940s Olympics.

At the time when I wrote the description I was not aware then of the time restriction of pre 1940. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

You are mistaking my curiosity for worry. Not an ounce of worry here 😎
