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 heart glistens gold
when a champion slows down
to let ducks pass by.

Context: Australia's Henry Pearce stopped rowing in his 1928 Amsterdam games quarter-final to allow a family of ducks to pass safely in front of his boat. He still won the heat and took gold in the final.

Forged silver and gold
Worn not for honour or pride
- Medals of Friendship

Context: At the 1936 Berlin Games, Japanese pole vaulters Shuhei Nishida and Sueo Oe tied for second place. The teammates were offered the opportunity to have a jump-off for the silver medal, but the two friends declined out of mutual respect for one another. For the purposes of Olympic records, Oe agreed to the bronze while Nishida took the silver.

Upon their return to Japan, the teammates came up with a different solution. The pair had a jeweler cut their medals in half and fuse them back together, creating half-silver, half-bronze pendants. The "Medals of Friendship," as they're now known in Japan, are enduring symbols of friendship and teamwork.

A trail blazed by flame
From ancient Greece to Berlin
Tradition begun

Context: Though the Olympic flame was first introduced in the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam, Berlin was the first instance of the torch relay. The Nazis invented the concept of the torch run from ancient Olympia to the host city.

The results are in for the Cairo Scavenger Hunt portion of this week's activities. Please keep in mind that scores for every event are a combination of placement points and participation points (3 points per team).

Without further ado:

First Place: Rick's Cafe Americain (13 points)
Second Place: Chariots of Fire (10 points)
Third Place: Feminine Assassins (8 points)
Fourth Place: A Race to Adventure (6 points)

There were very distinct gaps of time between entries, so no harrowing down-to-the-second stuff. :)

Great job, everyone!

The results for the Villain Hunt portion and the haiku portion will be up tomorrow. As a reminder, teams have about 4 hours left to submit their haikus.

Olympic challenge
Hope. Failing Hope. Defeat. Pain.
No solace is found

The new Aryan man
Jesse Owens four gold medals
Hitler's lie exposed

Special Olympics
I can be a hero too
Watch me, see me win

all in good spirit''

''Five rings together
Athletes compete full circle

Great job to Rick's, Race, and Chariots!! Those are wonderful haikus!! ;-D

Rick's, I like the ducks, and the history references. ;-)

Race, I like the reference to the spirit of the Olympics, and the Special Olympics (they are a part of the Olympics, which many people tend to forget), so thank you for that!! ;-)

Chariots, I like the theme of peace and the Olympic slogan that you used in yours. ;-)

Glad I don't have to judge this!! ;-D

Good luck!! ;-D

The Sleuth Olympics
just like the real Olympics
but less physical

Glistening blue hue
Pool ready to dive into
Splash, stroke, swim ensues

O Olympic Flame
ALit in Olympia
The Flame a Symbol

*United we play, United we win. Feminine but deadly*
