    This looks like it was a lot of fun! Makes me sorry I had to miss it .. well, except for the one screenshot showing the aftermath of tossing too many Fabled Fishing Nets at the same time. [​IMG]

    NICE! Brings back fond memories of GOF's Fish Net Stalking event. *tear*

    Glad to see people still using the seas. [​IMG]

    Thanks Oriana for such a well written report...great pictures too! We tossed around 150 normal nets, a couple of colored ones while mixing in 17 fabled nets here &amp; there to boost the fun factor...hehe. That was a very entertaining 2 hours of fun out on the open sea.

    We have some guild members back out on the open sea working on collecting more nets as we speak. So hopefully within the next couple of months we'll be having another Net Toss Event, but on a much larger scale...mawahaha!!

    I've not had this much fun popping Sea Monsters ever! Was laughing my ass off constantly while on TS with the others. Give them a little warning here &amp; there, then bang 4 Fabled nets get dropped in front of the boat with the onlookers yelling oh no!

    Was the most enjoyable 2 hours spent in UO in quite some time. I'll pass some extra invitations out next time to those showing interest in wanting to be involved with our next Net Toss in the next couple months. [​IMG]
