    500 Gold Crowns of the Obsidian (COTOs) and custom trophies for all record and lucky fishies (1.111, 2.222, etc.) caught any time by anybody in Brittany Fort (map).

    ♥ Now and forever for all eternity ♥

    I hope you enjoy some leisurely fishing with friends any time you'd like, where even little fishies of all types win!

    Awesome! A question, if I might: Where do we put the Record/Lucky fish we catch? I see no box on the docks :)

    The town now has swamp instead of freshwater fish so the records from the last fishing competition is not going to provide useful comparison

    Got this added to the events page. Put some categories for the events in there this time to help people visualize, plus it'll help me spot things more easily that are ready for removal.

    So can you elaborate? Are you saying you will pay 500 Cotos each time some one catches a "record" or "lucky" fish in Brittany Fort? I guess I need to understand what "record" or "lucky" fish are.... Sorry I'm old to the game but never have really fished. Also...why would u pay that amount for record or lucky fish? Or is it more for the philanthropic reason or are they valuable in SoTA for another reason? Sorry...I'm just trying to understand in case I create a similar event later on...

    Greetings everybody!

    Thank you for the questions and comments, I'll try to answer everybody the best that I can. I'm sorry, I was just trying to keep the prize announcement short, simple and concise with links, but I can see I didn't do very well at that or it's not enough information for most, unfortunately. :( All the highlighted words, symbols and photos are links that you can click on. ;)

    The current records are linked in the highlighted word, "record." These are spreadsheets I've used for my past fishy events, you will see different tabs listed along the bottom for each event. Some fishies from events need to be updated since they were caught before we could see two decimal places, but for Elgarion's current event right now, which is fetid fishies, the Leisurely Lucky Fetid Fishing is up to date with both decimals. :)

    A nice video that Lady @Tellana made for me a while ago is linked in the word, "bagged." It shows where my magical fishy bags are located on the bar in the Brittany Fort Inn located at the town entrance. ✨

    If you follow my, "record," link to my fishy spreadsheets, you will see the different events for different water types listed as tabs at the bottom of the first spreadsheet. I'll work on making just a records spreadsheet. ❤

    Thank you very, very much Governor Elgarion! ❤

    Yes, exactly, I will reward you with 500 crowns each! Yay! Lucky fishies are fishies with three digits the same, for example 1.11, 2.22, 3.33 and so on. Click the, "record," link to browse the records for fishies, there are tabs at the bottom.

    Hmm, I'm not sure if fishies have very much value outside of sentimental ones, somebody else might be able to answer, but sentimental reasons are my favorite! ♥ For Sir @Elryin Silvertree 's birthday a few days ago, I spent hours fishing for a nice fishy for him, caught on the day of his birthday, so that he could add the fishy to his governors collection. My friend @Serenia helped and made a nice plaque for the fishy so he could mount it on his wall. To me, that's what is valuable. ❤

    Other than that it's just for fun! :p


    Yours truly,

    Governor Sonja Solar

    Happy Easter!

    I'm sorry, but I think I just realized today what you meant! Did you find one of my treasure maps or love letters that were fished up during one of my previous fishy events and actually go find one of the pirate treasure chests or the lover's loot? If you went to the effort of digging up the treasure chest or discovering the long lost lover's loot I'll still send you the gold if you follow through. :)


    Yours truly,

    Governor Sonja Solar

    P.S. Also, fantastic news today, everybody! Sir Elgarion said he sent me customized gold and silver fishy trophies for me to award to fishers catching Record and Lucky fishies!​

    Congratulations Sir Jacob Storm ( @twofoldsilence ) for winning 500 crowns and the very first custom Lucky Fishy trophy with his lucky little 1.11 Large Peacock Bass, which also happens to weigh 1.1 too! Yay! ✨

    I hope you enjoyed some casual, relaxing fishing in Brittany Fort and you return soon! ♥

    @twofoldsilence bagged some more fishies casually fishing in Brittany Fort at his leisure and is coming very close to setting new records, in fact tying two of them already!

    He also inspired me to spend a sleepless night measuring fishies! :p All the old fishy sizes are off since it was ordered the measuring fishy sticks be changed. For example, a fishy that I used to have measured as size 1 in the records could now be anywhere from 1.04 to 0.95 instead. This means I need to go back through hundreds of fishies and measure each and every one of them again, the largest of which were already returned to their owners as their largest fishy caught along with prizes and fishy books. That's a wonderful thing for those looking to set new records though, since the biggest fishies have been returned home and only the smaller fishes remain for me to measure. There doesn't seem to be any way to sort fishies by size, so they all need to be measured by me again one at a time. Sir Jacob Storm has inspired me to try to set aside some more time this weekend for more fishy measuring and updating the record books. :)

    Since I still have some fishies in my fishy bag from the last 100,000 gold fishy event from @Trezir Pyle, @Sana Pridewolf, @CatDude, @Past Blue Ribbon, @AoiBlue, @Atticus Gryphonheart, @Drisdane and @Phythia I will be upgrading all of those that set records to 500 Crowns also. I do believe some of them will win by default since I think some of those fishy types and sizes have never been turned in before! I'll check all these fishies before doing anything else this weekend! ❤

    While re-measuring fishies I discovered four lucky fishies caught in previous events before I had lucky fishy prizes by @that_shawn_guy, @Lily Byrd, @Althaea Hanalli, and @Shift. I'll be sending these special fishies home to their owners.

    On your new fishies turned in Sir Jacob Storm you tied with two records, one of which I happened to notice I've broken myself in Veritas Sanctuary with a 1.1 Brook Trout, so keep fishing! :) I carefully placed all record fishes of the types you caught on the Butchering Station if you'd like to see them. Don't worry, even though it sounds dangerous, I've posted guards to ensure the fishies are safe on the table and nobody accidently chops them. Below are images of them and the 1.1 Brook Trout I caught as inspiration. I've also been inspired by @Alpha Fishstick to create a fishy museum for all record holding fishies so everybody may browse them any time, he started making one twice, but seems to have moved on. :(
    • @Justyn holds the Brook Trout record with a 1.09 fishy, so you tied her! See the photo of her record fishy and my 1.1 Brook Trout from Veritas Sanctuary below.
    • @Ashley Starsapphire holds the Large Oscar Sunfish record with a 0.94 fishy.
    • @SoulSmith holds the Peacock Bass record with a 1.04 fishy, which you also tied! So close!
    • @Weins201 holds the Spotted Bass record with a 1.09 fishy.
    Photos of record fishies: https://imgur.com/a/0AIJ3xg

    You're coming very close to setting a new record! Hopefully knowing the new sizes should help and I'll try to finish checking all the fishies this weekend.

    Please stop by Brittany Fort again any time you'd like to relax with some fishing between adventures, I look forward to seeing you!



    Yours truly,

    Governor Sonja Solar

    Sonja. I added several record fishy I caught at Fort Brittany to your bag. I also sent you an in-game letter with the details about them. Thanks for hosting such a great fishing contest, and I look forward to fishing more in your town.

    Greetings everybody! I hope everybody had a fabulously fun weekend! ✨

    I've performed routine checkups with each and every Brittany Fort fishy you've entrusted in my care since the first Brittany Fort fishy event and I've consolidated their medical records into a single record sheet, which will make it much, much easier for everybody to check the current records for each fishy type at any time and much, much easier for me when examining and caring for any new fishies you drop off with me! Yay! I'm so, so happy I'm finally done with that! Now I can start working on building a public fishy museum to showcase all your record fishies for everybody to visit and see at any time too. If you've dropped off fishies for me or mailed me, I'll be catching up on my mail and the prizes for the newest record fishies soon!

    Here's some wonderful news too! There's 15 fishy types and sizes that have never been dropped off with me before! That means that any fishy of any size of those types will win by default! Yay! :) Here's the fishy types and sizes that have never been dropped off with me before and will win by default unless somebody else drops off a larger one with me during the same time.

    Pike Large, Tarpon Small, Tarpon, Aligator Gar Small, Aligator Gar, Aligator Gar Large, Sturgeon Small, Sailfish, Sailfish Large, Swordfish Small, Swordfish Large, Marlin Small, Marlin Large, Tiger Shark, Tiger Shark Large.​

    And, more good news! I've also decided to make it even easier to set a new record and win! From now on I'll accept into my care all Brittany Fort record fishies caught at any time by anybody! You don't need to have caught the fishy to drop it off and win and it doesn't matter when the fishy was caught! If your name's not on the fishy please mail it to me, handle with care. Yes, that means if you caught a humongous record setting Brittany Fort fishy years ago, if a friend gave you one, or even if you just found and adopted a lost Brittany Fort fishy or bought one from a merchant, you may drop it off with me for a record setting prize of 500 Crowns!

    So, please please, please, check and treat your Brittany Fort fishies with care, check my record books, and if you've got a winner caught by anybody at any time please bring the fishy to me in Brittany Fort for your 500 Crown prize!

    Have fun fishing at your leisure!


    Yours truly,

    Governor Sonja Solar

    Hey,
    I don't understand how people managed to fish saltwater and fetid water fishes in Brittany Fort. The swamps are too shallow to fish in it and there's no salt water here, am I missing something?

    Also what happen if someone caught a fish the same size as a current record?

    Thanks for the contest!

    Player towns default to fresh water but you can place a salt or fetid water statue that will switch the water type.
