    May I Fish?
    >>>>> Saturday May 17th thru Saturday May 31st <<<<<

    Thanks for participating!!!

    Anyone can enter - no entry fee!
    Over 10 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)


    There is a scourge upon the lands.... You Must Fish!
    http://uorforum.com/threads/fish-you-must.5010/



    The angler who lands the biggest fish will win
    1,000,000 gold!

    [​IMG]

    No there isn't salt in your eyes mate... a check for One Million will be awarded to the angler who hauls in the biggest fish.
    Since I am not one for superstition,
    good luck and FISH ON!

    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.


    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.

    Many thanks to Lord Markos


    Best Screenshot: Post a fishing or seafaring screenshot - May 17th-31st.

    Congrats to Lady Peep for winning the May I Fish screenshot contest!!!



    Best Fish Tale: Post a Tall Tale of your adventures licking the waters - May 17th-31st.
    http://uorforum.com/threads/may-i-fish-tall-tale-contest-–-100k.5117/
    Congrats to Rod Longcast for winning the Tall Tale contest!!!


    Additional Prizes: There is a trove of additional prizes that will be awarded. How to win these prizes will not be announced but 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. Again, the angler who does the pre-determined action will win the prize. I will be submitting a list of these pre-determined feat 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 and/or participate with stories & screenshots. Here are the prizes............

    Rules:
    * The tournament will be held between Friday May 17th through Saturday May 31st 2014. All fish weighed in must have a datestamp on/between those dates. (Note: datestamp is based on UOR server time, US Central, -6 GMT)
    * Prizes will be distributed Sunday June 1st. Accommodations will be made to winners that cannot claim their prize on that day.
    * 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 contact Zyler in IRC or Forum PM to submit your fish -OR- post a screen shot of your catch. DO NOT MOUNT FISH. Mounting a fish will erase datestamp. Fish will need to be verified to collect prize if not seen previously ingame. Fish weight will only be recorded. You keep your catch.
    * Anglers tied will split the prizes of the 2 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 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 Trophys via Taxidermi Kits.
    You can get to 100% fishing on land, but deep sea fishing gives much faster skillgains.
    Monsters will never spawn by fishing from land.
