    I hope to be there, pls remind me! also part of the condition of the net donation is I get the first anchor and seahorse, you forgot to mention that in your post, a slight oversight i am sure;)

    If I can get a gametime code by then, Merganser will be there, and will happily donate nets.



    (I hope to see you all there)

    What skills should i bring to kill stuff? Been a while since I did these. I can pretty much come as bard, tamer or mage. (or any combination of those)

    Also, does O*T have a website or something?

    Cheerful, you can either bring your own nets or just sit back and kill the monsters that come from the sea via our nets. To get a chance at an artifact you want to try damage the 'Leviathan' which come from fabled fishing nets. We have about 30 of those to chuck in mixed with about 400 normal nets.

    Oh.. And its TONIGHT! So please tell everyone you can about this!

    Thanks.

    Ah, so I dont get to toss any nets :(
    Then again I dont have any nets or fishing skill...but wait, I'm human and that gives me some fishing skill, probaly due to the fact that my great great great grandad used to be a fisherman and it's been passed down in my families gene's from one generation to another...then again all humans have this in their gene's...great great great grandad got about abit, the dirty bugger !

    After reading what you said, and because we have so many.. We'll hand out nets before the toss to anyone who wants them. You don't need any fishing skill to toss them. :)

    No its a good idea! *grins* We'll hand out normal nets for people to toss. Fabled nets will be tossed by us as they are rather expensive. Would hate to see someone run off with it instead of tossing it *laughs*

    Was great fun!
    Didnt manage loot anything... everyone (myself included) seemed to cast Eathquake.... I almost had to throw up at one point due to the excessive shaking of the screen :)

    Great fun.

    'twas chaos indeed... (to which I added by slinging fabled nets at inappropriate moments :lol:)
