    It is a day to rejoice my fellow Fishermen. The Fishing Council of
    Britannia [FCB!] is unfurling it's sails onto the high seas under the
    leadership of Krasnog, the Legendary Fleet Captain, and all ye Fishers
    are welcome to join us!

    If you have a moment, let me explain how I have arrived in your lives.

    It seems like only yesterday that as a young child I held my first
    fishing pole on the docks of Skara Brae. It was my father's will that
    I lead a life of catching fish like him and his father before that.
    The family legacy as it was spoken. All because of some foolish
    prophecy that crossed plots with legends of old… that a great
    fisherman would one day find his way into another world. One of the
    other mystical shattered gems of immortality.

    Along the banks of Skara I learned to fish, and there my father
    continued to tell me stories of a Sosaria, and a Chesapeake, and an
    Atlantic. I was in Chesapeake, a mirror of Sosaria he would explain,
    and although I called it Britannia it held the same name to others in
    a place called Atlantic. I always took his stories to be a weak means
    to pass the time as we searched the elusive big fish.

    A crazy ol' fool I called him… until that stormy night after one of
    our famously popular Net Tosses. As Fleet Captain of FCB, we had such
    glorious days, cherished moments, and kindred friendships with guild
    mates that would last more than one lifetime. It was on the sail from
    the Maginicia Docks that I discovered in my ship's hold... one last
    net to toss in the water. At the time I thought nothing of its strange
    hue… an odd shade from the spectrum that I had not seen before.

    As is with most great fishermen, curiosity was bursting from my pores
    so I tossed that net into the water. But a Kraken I did not catch, for
    it was Sosaria that caught me. I wish I could tell you in detail what
    happened, but in all honesty all that I remember was water engulfing
    my ship, and me along with it.

    When the water washed away, as quick as it overtook me… I found myself
    on the shores of Moonglow. A kind rancher, Nick, took me in and nursed
    my weakened body back to health. It was there on Moonglow that the old
    and wise Mages were able to confirm my suspicion. In ancient scrolls,
    there indeed existed a prophecy of a great fisherman, who would cross
    the shards of immortality. And to my disbelief, although my crossing
    seemed instantaneously… 55 years had passed in Britannia.

    After accepting my destiny, I learned that Atlantic had a Fishing
    Council as well. But many years had passed since its fleet had sailed
    the waters. I then understood what my father had dreamed for me… to
    lead a Fleet in another world… to be a part of something that united
    all the shards of that shattered gem.

    And so there on the isle of Moonglow, I have rebuilt the FCB fleet.
    With the aide of the neighborly ranchers, we have built a home and
    even ships to rival those of the previous fleet. The sea is not the
    same as there are new waters to explore. The ships are more powerful.
    The air is different with names of new individuals. The monsters of
    the deep are ferocious as ever.

    But my friends, one thing has not changed… the Fishing Council of
    Britannia is here to master it. Come one.. Come all… the Atlantic
    Fleet is setting sail once again!
