2016 Beaver Moon Fishing Tournament Monday November 14th, 2016 Anyone can enter tournament - no signup required, no entry fee! 1 million gold for biggest fish & 1 million gold for smallest fish Many thanks to Treasureman for his generous donations to the Fish Tourneys!!! Note: There are other prizes aside from those above therefore I suggest posting everything you catch. Note2: Tournament time when you can catch fish dated 11/14/2016 has shown to be based on US Eastern time. Unless this has been changed, I assume it to still be true. 1st Biggest - Peter Tosh - 171 stoner - 1 million gold 2nd Biggest - Mite - 152 stoner - 150k gold 1st Smallest - jonah - 11 stoner - 1 million gold 2nd Smalest - paCU Assado - 42 stoner - 150k gold Storytime rewards of 100k each go to The Crooked Warden and k1w1uk (95+ fishing is required to catch a "Big Fish", tis by-catch (loot) of a sea serpent which is caught offshore in deep waters) Why the beaver? The November full moon is regarded as the Beaver Moon because it falls at a time of year when American settlers trapped beavers ahead of winter. The full moon on November 14th will be the closest full moon to Earth since 1948. The full moon won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034. Here is a link with more info: http://www.space.com/34676-closest-supermoon-since-1948-surprising-facts.html Participating is easy!!! Post a screenshot of your catch in this thread. Big Fish datestamp must 11/14/2016 Winning fish will be verified ingame so keep fish until end of tourney and don't mount. Mounting a fish will remove the datestamp. Rules: * The tournament will on Monday November 14th, 2016. All fish weighed in must have a datestamp on that date. (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.
