    Boothby Memorial Fishing Tournament
    Thursday October 6th to Sunday October 9th
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Over 9 million in prizes!!!
    Anyone can enter tournament - no signup required, no entry fee!

    An interview with Lord Boothby can be found in the Britain Hearld Vol. 2:
    http://uorforum.com/threads/britain...y-interview-available-at-kings-library.18652/

    (95+ fishing is required to catch a "Big Fish", tis by-catch (loot) of a seaserpent which is caught offshore in deep waters)

    Post screenshot of catch in this thread.
    Big Fish datestamp must be between 10/06/2016 to 10/09/2016
    Winning fish will be verified ingame so keep fish until end of tourney and don't mount.
    Mounting a fish will remove the datestamp.

    Bonus Prize: The first angler to weigh in a 200 stone or 1 stone fish will win an additional 1 million gold.

    Fishing Feats: How to win these prizes will not be announced rather awarded to the angler who accomplishes a pre-determined feat. For example, there might be a prize for the angler who turns in the 100th fish. The angler who does the pre-determined action will win the prize. I will be submitting a list of these pre-determined feats and prizes to Telamon before the Tournament begins to ensure there isn't a perception of a bias in awarding prizes. My advice is to participate and turn in fish no matter how big or small.

    [​IMG]
    Fishing Feats not accomplished will be given away in a lottery based on when the angler turned in their fish. A random number generator will be used to determine the winner. For example, if an angler turned in the 15th fish and the generator produces a 15, that angler wins the prize.




    Rules:
    * The tournament will be held from Thursday October 6th to Sunday October 9th, 2016. All fish weighed in must have a datestamp on those dates. (Note: datestamp is based on UOR time, US Eastern, -5 UTC)
    * Prizes will be distributed the following week.
    * Fish weighed in will be credited to the angler, not who turns. Anyone can submit fish for any angler. Angler must be present to claim winnings.
    * Use as many fishers as you like. Again, fish is credited to angler marked on fish. (some players use more than 1 fisher)
    * An angler can only place 1 fish in biggest and smallest categories. For example, Fisher X might have a 10 stone and a 12 stone fish however only the 10 stone will be credited in the smallest category. In addition, Fisher X can also place in biggest with a 199 stone fish.
    * No sign up required! Simply post a screen shot of your catch but keep it for prize reward and... DO NOT MOUNT FISH. Mounting a fish will erase datestamp. Fish will need to be verified ingame to collect your prize. Only fish weight will only be recorded. You keep your catch.
    * Anglers tied will split the prizes of the two respective places. For example, Anglers tied for 2nd place will split the winnings for 2nd and 3rd place.

    Notes on Fishing:
    Double-click on a fishing pole, then click on a body of water. If successful, you will catch a fish. You might catch something more interesting than a fish. Success with this skill also depends on the availability of fish in that specific area.
    0-65 - On land you will fish up Magic Fish, and Normal Fish.
    80+ - Sea Serpents (No SoS Message), Special Fishing Nets.
    90+ - Treasure Maps 100 - Messages in a Bottle (aka MIB) / Waterstained SoS Message
    95+ - You can reel in Big Fish which can be used to make Trophies via Taxidermy Kits.
    You can get to 100 skill/Grandmaster fishing from land and monsters will never spawn when fishing from land.
    Once you have attained 95+ fishing, acquire a boat. They are player-made (check player vendors, forums, or IRC). You will need a boat to get offshore into deep water to catch Big Fish.

    Many thanks to the generous sponsors and UOR staff
    who make these Tourneys possible!

    I'm excited. I turned one of my fishermen into a miner, so I need to work on a new one.
