Fishing Tournament! Friday, September 12th to Sunday, the 14th Anyone can enter - no entry fee! Over 1 million in prizes!!! (95+ fishing is required to catch a "Big Fish", tis by-catch of a sea serpent which is caught offshore in deep waters) Post screenshot of catch in this thread. Winning fish will be verified ingame so keep fish until end of tourney and don't mount. Mounting a fish will remove the datestamp. About the blood splattered scouts map... Before there were any houses built in the realm, scouts were sent from several towns to survey the lands. Unfortunately, many of these scouts perished while exploring the then wilds. The expeditions proceeded forth and maps were drawn for these expeditions from those that learned before. However, the creatures of the realm were not pleased with the influx and much blood flowed. Eventually, the lands were mostly settled for habitation. Those that survived farmed in peace... establishing homesteads. During the calamity of establishing camps and settlements, many of the scout maps were lost. The map above is a lost treasure of that time. http://uorforum.com/threads/britannia-zoning-department-scouting-expedition.437/ An angler can place only one fish in the biggest slot and only one fish in smallest slot. (for example- Mr Fisher can win 3rd biggest and 1st smallest, BUT NOT 1st and 5th biggest. Also, a player with multiple fishers can place both Mr Fisher & Ms Fisher in 2nd and 5th place biggest. Point is one angler can not take 1st and 3rd with same fisher but CAN take 1st and 3rd with two different fishers.) Players can use multiple fishers however fish is ALWAYS credited to the angler (character tagged on fish). A player can use Mr. Fisher, Ms. Fisher, Fisher Jr. But above applies. Rules: * The tournament will be held between Friday Sept 12th through Sunday Sept 14th 2014. All fish weighed in must have a datestamp on/between those dates. (Note: datestamp is based on UOR server time, US Central, -5 GMT) * 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 are using more than one fisher) * 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 and 3rd 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 Footwear, 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% fishing on land, but deep sea fishing gives much faster skill gains. Monsters will never spawn by fishing from land. http://www.uorenaissance.com/info/?page=info&id=218 Many thanks to the generous sponsors and UOR staff who make these Tourneys possible!
