Frenzied Fish Fest Sunday, April 19, 2009 Lady Raelyn McKie was at Skara Brae docks greeting the anglers, combat support personnel for the boats, and spectators. Lady Raelyn, apparently bilingual, explained the rules and issued the warnings she had been hearing to Akr. Before the ships set sail, Lady Raelyn, who had grown up on the island of Skara Brae developing a deep understanding of wild animals and creatures, warned there had been rumors of unknown creatures lurking in the waters. She also cautioned that the creatures were reported to have the capacity to sense the combat capabilities of the personnel on the individual ships. With Raelyn's warnings in mind, we set sail aboard Ran and Frey Wavestrider's ship the Back One. While Ran steered the boat and fished, Frey and I kept a lookout for sea monsters. So wary were we, Lady Raelyn almost became a casualty the first time she popped aboard the deck of the Back One to the check on our safety and whereabouts. In our quest to help Ran land the biggest of Big Fish, we sailed well into the night. With only the dim light of the moon and the glow of defensive fields, we peered anxiously into the darkness, wondering with every splash of water hitting the boat if we had encountered some of the mysterious creatures Raelyn had warned of. Just when we were tiring and thinking the rumor of such creatures was just that .. a rumor ... the sea erupted with types of monsters none of us had ever before encountered. Time after time the monsters assaulted the crew aboard our ship. Fortunately, Ran and Wave have a sturdy, well-maintained craft that sustained little damage during the fray. The three of us were able to defend the ship, and help keep each other alive. Unfortunately, I was called away before Ran had pulled up a Big Fish. Being uneasy about the Wavestrider's well-being today, wondering if they had caught a Big Fish or had even survived the rest of the fishing trip, I checked the news on UO - Origin Events and found this headline: Congrats to Akr, Frenzied Fish Fest Winner!
