There will be 3 activities this week. All events will start on Thursday, August 11, 12:00 AM, SST. Last week was a sprint. This week (and next) is a marathon. Good luck. ;-)

1. Treasure Hunts - Week 1
This event will last TWO weeks. You need to complete a total of six hunts, 3 Single-City, and 3 Multi-City. Any hunt opened before Thursday, August 11, 12:00 AM, SST, will be discarded. Hunts can start in any city, and be from any faction. All teams get 30 points for each hunt they participate in. Teams who win a hunt get 100 points. Once teams have completed all hunts, they are ineligible from further competition in this activity.

Hunts will be divided under the following categories:

Prizes you can Wear.
Prizes you can Hold.
Prizes you can Use.

For example, The Sacred Atlas of Al Capone is a Multi-City hunt currently being run out of Delhi. An atlas is NOT something you can wear. It is, however, something you can hold, or use, so it would qualify for the second or third categories, but not the first. Another example, The Golden Ring of Al Capone, is a Single-City hunt currently being run out of Shanghai. A ring is something you can wear and hold, but not use. So it would qualify for the first and second categories, but not the third. Teams may determine which categories their prizes fall under, but only one category may be used for one prize. You must use 3 Single-City hunts in each category, and 3 Multi-City hunts. If you have a question about what category a prize falls into, please PM the Judges (Breitkat, Riza, or Squirrel).

2. Scavenger Hunt - Week 1
This is part one of two. Teams have ONE week to complete this activity. All teams must empty their Lockers of all IH favor reward items, unless they are a part of a member's uniform. Please send a screenshot to Riza Hawkeye when you have done so for verification. Please also remember that we have an honour system in place for this competition, and we are trusting you NOT to hoard things in your Apartments.

Several people have asked me how to take a screenshot between last week and this week, so I'll post this here for everyone's reference.

On Windows computers, you can either:
1) Press the Print Screen button (PrtSc) on the top right of your keyboard and it will capture everything currently on your screen. The image will be saved on your computer.
2) Open the Snipping Tool program (pre-installed already) and cut out the section you want to show. You must save it to your computer.

On Mac computers, you can either:
1) Press "Command, Shift, 3" to take a screenshot of your entire screen. The image will save itself on your desktop.
2) Press "Command, Shift, 4" to take a screenshot of part of your screen. Your pointer will change into a crosshair. Drag to select the area you want, then let go. The image will save itself on your desktop.

On iPhones and iPads, simultaneously press the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons. It will save the image to your photos.

On Android phones and tablets, simultaneously press the Power and Volume Down buttons. It will save the image to your device.

After you have your image (using whichever method suits you), you can upload it to http://prnt.sc/ and the site will generate a shareable link to your image. You are also free to use any other image sharing site you wish. Or send it to me directly over Facebook.

If you run into any trouble, please PM me and I will be more than happy to help you. Or see if one of your agency mates who worked on last week's scavenger hunt can help you.

As an alternative to all the above, aim your phone camera at your screen, take a picture, and send it to me.

How to verify items are found in order: Please place your scavenger favor rewards in the locker so the agency clerk can log it. Then you can remove it and sell it if you wish. If any judges happen to stop by for any reason, then they'll able to verify using the time stamps. But I trust you all.

LOL Sindy, I asked the same question using the exact scenario. We got the duck collar too.

So once we find our pairs of satin slippers, we will play hell finding that collar again. Laws of sleuth.
Keep getting something/someone before needed, it/they disappear when needed.

Thank you, Riza. Unless I missed it while reading the instructions, that step was not specified.

I'm glad it's been specified now what exactly "participation" means. Damn, I wish I knew yesterday.

*Happy Etain came back!*

Apparently there are people interested in such things, so there are some (4) new Olympic type decorations in the apartments.

I'm asking for everyone's help. Please do NOT encourage Autumnsprings to be on Sleuth tonight. She needs rest to recover from her surgery. Her team is dealing with her absence, but PLEASE, tell her to come back tomorrow if you see her. We love her, but she really does need to rest right now.

Thank you!! ;-)
