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:
I created a multi-stanza haiku for our team. In the end, there was some dispute if it was "legal" or not, so we did not submit it. However, in the interest of sharing our creativity, here it is:
Here for Olympic
Glory, Feminine Assassins
Arrive on the scene
CodeRed lights the torch
Salutes the UK flag and
Waves the others on
Archerer Bonanza and
Boxing Ms Helen
Bullets, arrows and charged fists
And win gold medal
Glory. Feminine Assassins
Here to close the case.
Sultry De Mon
That is really great CodeRed007. Very creative.
I tried really hard to talk my team into using this haiku
My daughter watches
Olympic beach volleyball
I blame anime
I just don't get why the others got chosen . ; )
With such writing skills my team doesn't need competitors, I can take em down single handed.
Congratulations to all the teams for their awesome Haiku's - I bet it was a difficult job for the judges to choose, but when that happens, it all comes down to nitpicking on the smaller details and differences...
And I can see that Miss de Mon won't have any trouble with the RP - challenge this week, with those writing skills *wink*
