    Ahoy Mates!

    The time be here again for another ocean wide fishing competition!

    Organized by The City of Trinsic, the competition be open to all anglers across all the seas.

    Catch Window : Thursday, 1st May. -> Thursday, 15th May. (15 days)
    Weigh-In Event : Friday 16th May, 9:00pm EST.
    Place : Trinsic Docks, Trammel.

    The catch window will be from May 1st to May 15th, 2014. Only fish tagged between, and including, these dates will be eligible for entry in their appropriate category.

    To submit a fish for judging, all ye need to do is drop it in the mailbox at the Surf Shack on Trinsic south beach, which be here..


    Ye can catch a teleport from Goodman's Rune Library in Zento!


    Then, at the Weigh-In event on Friday May 16th, we be announcing the winners for all categories and awarding prizes to the lucky anglers. Ye can also turn in any last minute entries by hand at the event. However, please note that fish caught on the day of the Weigh-In will be outside the catch window, and so will not be eligible.

    After the prizes have gone out, it'd be our great honor if all hands would join us for some good ol' fashioned cannon cracking aboard the Trinsic naval ships. We'll be taking on two of the sea's greatest beasties...

    Osiredon the Scalis Enforcer


    NOTE : Vessels captained by experienced sailors will be on hand to ship land lubbers to the battle. The cannons will be open for anyone to use, but ye will need to bring yer own supply of heavy cannonballs, heavy powder charges, and fuse cords.

    Anyways, ye probably be wanting to know a little more about the fishing competition, so here be the fiddly bits...

    The Ways Of the Contest
    - Ye can submit as many fish as ye like, in as many categories as ye like.
    - Only fish submitted in game via the designated mailbox, or handed to the judges on the day of the Weigh-In event, will be accepted. (No screenshots)
    - Ye may only win one of the listed categories, with the exception of the two final categories X & Z (see below).
    - The final winners will be announced, and prizes awarded, at the Weigh-In event. It may be possible to pick up yer prize after the event if a time can be arranged.
    - In the case where one fisherman submits multiple fish that win different categories, the fisherman will be awarded victory in the category covering his/her largest fish only. If the fish are of the same weight, the judges will decide which category to award.
    - The two final categories X and Z will be awarded to the biggest qualifying fish submitted in the previous categories A through H.
    - Only fish listed in each category above will be accepted. We will not be accepting Red Herring, Mud Puppies, or any other fish not on the lists above.
    - The weight of biggest fish submitted thus far for each categories will be listed in the table at the bottom of this post. The table will be updated once a day, in the early morning hours.
    - If ye would like yer fish back after the competition, please submit them in a bag with a rune to a public mailbox where they may be returned. However, we are encouraging people to donate them to the Fishing Record Museum, and this is where all record breaking un-claimed will be sent.
    - Lastly, in the event of any controversy, the judge's decisions be final in all things.

    *turns parchment over and finds nothing*

    Looks like that be all the whats n' hows of it mates.

    We'd like to encourage ye all to donate yer winning catches to the Fishing Record Museum, run by the fine mariners of Castaways. It be up to yeself of course. If ye be interested in seeing the museum, ye can visit anytime at this location...

    Fair winds and bent poles to ye mates!

    I was a bit worried, no submissions in the first week. But it looks like the rumors were true, everyone was holding out.

    All categories but one, have entries this morning.

    Good luck over the final couple of days mates!

    The winners are in!

    If you have not received your prize, be it due to rollbacks or absence, drop me a rune to your mailbox in the Surf Shack mailbox and I'll get it to you. Same goes for fish returns.

    A - 170 - Enchanted Shore Fish. : Nezumi-chan
    B - 139 - Legendary Shore Fish. : Delazya
    C - 194 - Enchanted Deep Water Fish. : Rolan Desh
    D - 161 - Legendary Deep Water Fish. : Devisser
    E - 172 - Enchanted Dungeon Fish . : Taj
    F - 72 - Legendary Dungeon Fish. : Pino
    G - 93 - Enchanted Crustacean. : Semmerset
    H - 115 - Legendary Crustacean. : *Devisser
    The Big Kahuna : (C) Rolan Desh
    The King's Trophy : (C) Rolan Desh

    * Technically Devisser could only win one category but the crowd voted to give the second award as his was the only submission in this category.

    Yes, the server rolled back yet again, making us lose half the crowd for the monster hunts as well as having to hand out all the awards again. Is this becoming a tradition for the fishing competition? Only time will tell...:pirate:

    Congrats all winners!
