    Super Blue Blood Moon
    Fishing Tournament

    Over 4 Million in Prizes!!!

    Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

    Thanks to all who participated, enjoyed, and despised.

    I will review log for biggest and smallest tomorrow.
    The remaining prizes will be given randomly to those that participated.



    Anglers and other interested parties:

    There is a spoof Zyler in the realm. I have a [VoP] guild tag. Please don't be fooled by turning over fish etc...

    Participating is easy!!!
    Post screenshot of catch in this thread.
    Big Fish datestamp must be on 01/31/2018
    Winning fish will be verified ingame so keep fish until end of tourney.
    Mounting a trophy fish will remove the datestamp.

    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 UO:R Staff 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. If necessary, there will be a Fish Log Lottery for feats not accomplished. Every fish weighed-in will be entered into a lottery based on when the angler turned in their fish. A random number generator will be used to determine the winner(s). For example, if an angler turned in the 15th fish and the generator produces a 15, that angler wins.

    An additional 1 million gold will be awarded to the 1st angler that weighs in a 1 stone or 200 stone fish!

    I enjoy finding house spots and think this is a nice one. Log cabin on an extensive waterfront lot. Semi-secluded on a quaint bay. There is even a resident healer!


    Rules:
    * The tournament will be held on the full moon, Wednesday January 31st, 2018. All fish weighed in must have a datestamp on that date. (Note: datestamp is based on UO:R time, US Central, -6 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/award 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. 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!

    There are more than 4 million reasons to fish in 4 hours!

    Why 4?
    I like numbers and while not a numerologist.... math, statistics, and probabilities are wonderful arts.

    1 - a full moon
    2 - a super moon
    3 - a blue moon
    4 - a lunar eclipse
