    ~*~*~*~*~*~​
    Help Zox Greatsnapper build her collection of fish! Each month, she will announce a type of fish or crustacean that she is interested in. Leave the heaviest example of the type in the mailbox at the Wedding House by the deadline. The winning fish will be put on display in the Wedding House for a time, then moved to the Award Hall. The curator of the Award Hall has promised Zox she will display them until Zox has enough to build her own Museum.

    If your fish is not the heaviest, you may have it back, if you left a house rune to your mailbox with the fish.
    [​IMG]
    All non-winning fish that are left without return information will be cooked and distributed to the hungry peasants of Britain and Paws.

    ~*~*~*~*~*~​

    We’ll start off with blue marlin. The blue marlin must be caught sometime between now and June 11th. It must be turned in by June 11th, before 11:59 p.m. CDT. The heaviest blue marlin will be on display in the Wedding House the next day. Blue marlin can be found in Trammel by grandmaster fishers and above.

    Zox did receive a fairy salmon in time to put it on her Walrus Festival tree. It was caught after the due date though, so she has decided to leave the contest open until January 3rd.

    Congratulations to Dangling WORM for catching the heaviest crystal fish! Zox Greatsnapper loves the shimmering, glittery fish.

    [​IMG]

The fish must be caught between July 29th and August 26th. Please leave the fish in the mailbox by August 26th at 11:59 p.m. CDT.

    Congratulations to Dangling WORM for catching both of last month’s fish. Fortunately, since they were in the New Exhibits Hall, the Catfish did not steal them.

    [​IMG]

    Zox Greatsnapper was delighted to finally have her Museum of Fish! Then it disappeared in seconds. Zox is not sure she can rebuild her dream after it was so cruelly catnapped away. Zox feels very sad.
