    You gain reputation by finishing quests. You lose reputation by quitting quests.

    Take all the time you like, it is not measured

    No, you can do 8 at a time.

    You can have a quest from each of them at the same time. There are 8

    It doesn’t matter what order you hand them in.

    Each time you complete an order with a specific fish, the next time you get an order with that fish the quantity will increase by 5 to a max of 20.
    Each time you abandon a quest with a specific fish, the next order you get with that fish will be 5 less quantity.

    The fish monger chooses randomly between a list of fish based on your fishing skill. The higher your skill, the bigger the list.
    For each fish that you have completed an order for, you get a chance to get an order for 2 fish.
    For each fish that you have completed an order for twice, you get a chance to get an order for 3 fish.
    For each fish that you have completed an order for three times, you get a chance to get an order for 4 fish.
    This progresses until you are getting orders for 6 fish.
    The number of different fish in the order is always random, the only thing that changes is the odds.

    Reputation is pooled among all fishmongers, they talk to each other through a secret chat channel.

    As listed above, the kind of fish are random, the number of fish are random and the prizes are random.

    There are categories based on order size. There is some overlap, but you get different prizes for a small order than you get for a big order.
    The size of the order is weighted depending on whether you are catching shallow water fish (x1), deep water fish(x2), or dungeon fish (x3).

    Only in that it will limit the sizes of your orders

    That is completely random. However, there are 4 order sizes which map to 4 categories of prizes. Each category has its own set of bait, books, scrolls, etc. - RNG plays no part.

    They tell you where the fish are, and they are collectible.

    We realize that the books are dropping more than is appropriate. We want to improve the rarity of books and will be scheduling changes in an upcoming publish - we will let you know more when we have additional details.

    I would just toss them unless you know someone who wants one. If there is ever an occasion to need one, you can just do the quest a few times and get another one. They are there as a collectable and to give you information about fish.

    Thanks all!
