    EM Event: Fishing Hosted by EM Vladimere
    6/6/09 Counselor's Guild in Britain


    Tonight the citizens of Chesapeake set sail in search of the big fish! I was running a tad late so I sat with EM Vladimere for some small talk while waiting for the return of the fishermen. The seas were calm in most parts but some were infested with Sea Serpents, Water elemental and those little dolphins.

    The contestants all came back around 9:10pm EST. Some had no luck while others like James Von Krieg from Dragons Watch had to carry in two very LARGE fish by hand from his ship.

    Fishing Event Results:

    James Von Krieg (DWxC) 161 and 152lbs
    Elves (DmG)- none
    Loopy (FTH) 156lbs
    Char Gar (F#V) - Only 1lbers
    Albert- none
    Jesse (L/V} - 38lbs
    Sushi (DWxC) - 24lbs
    Periwinkle (DWxC)- none

    4 Pearls all together by
    (Was not part of competition but worth mention)

    Char Gar

    Cheering on the fishermen:

    Nanoc (DWxC)
    Niva The Savage (T_T)

    The winner and fishing champion of the shard
    James Von Krieg

    I bought a fish finder off ebay."​

    The group sat around for awhile chit chatting and cracking jokes. CharGar being playful asked for a engraved robe and EM Valdimere explained what would happen.

    EM Vladimere:

    Congrats to James Von Krieg and a congrats to those that came out and tried to take home the biggest catch!

    Below you will find some chit chatting done while awaiting the arrival of the contestants.

    M:So what are you building next door?

    V:The house was put there for me to
    lock things down extra storage.

    M:Oh okay. Saw a dirt plot so was

    V:I took down the walls and made it
    a dirt plot.

    V:Anytime you want to report on an event
    your more then welcome to show up.

    M:Well Thank you. Nice to see I'm

    V:Wait till the players return and ask
    them what they got this evening. I
    bet the next event will have a few
    hundred show up. Once word
    gets around. For the fishing
    tourney I have everyone a GM
    Marked Fishing Pole.

    M:Oh wow! They are lucky.
    I may have to learn fishing so I can
    compete next time.

    V:Anyone can join in whoever catches
    the biggest fish will have it
    mounted and displayed at the rewards

    M:Will you have the special
    fishing poles next time?

    V:I can't give a yes on that. Sometimes
    the events will have gm made stuff.
    I cant say which ones till it happens.
    I don't want to be giving out poles
    to everyone. It would take hours. So
    unannounced it will happen at different
