    Thanks for running this contest. I would like to provide a little input in case you change things up in the future though. I don't fish a whole lot so I'm not likely to ever win this contest but I was excited to see that Northwood was one of the NPC towns this month, as I have a lot there. But then I realized that there is almost no way a fish from Northwood would win since it has fresh water and the towns above and below it in the list are salt water. So maybe if you switch things up in the future the NPC towns picked for any month could have the same water types.

    Hmmm, ya. Honestly that list isn't very long, perhaps we just do 1 of the NPC/Misc locations a month and presto, should be fine. Or I could try to group them by water type as well. I'll look into it for R93 (nudge if I forget) then R94. As for now, folks would have to apply their knowledge in fishing to know which would be the best of the 2 to go to, though isn't nice for the freshwater location in those instances that can't compete. I definitely see your point.

    Greetings all, trying to update the fast travel boats I have set up for the monthly fishing event. (Just off the main dock in Rock Ridge) But I am missing a few locations for the R93 towns. Any help in finding them would be great :)

    Thanks

    I believe Broken Ground is on the list for 93. I would link to the lakefront sign there. On the overland, it is located on the opposite side of right mountain close to the water as you get off the boat in Mistrendur.

    Since my town is new and is part of the Release 93 Monthly Fishing Contest, I though I should al least let you know where my town is:

    It is located here (North of Desolis by the coast in the Grunvald Region):
    [​IMG]

    I tried to make sure there is more than enough fishing areas with docks and various other docks in the water to allow more than enough fishing areas. Please do feel free to come by and fish in my town and then be entered into the Monthly Fishing Contest ! Good luck! :D

    Let's be honest here... the winners of 50 Hoppers kinda got screwed.
    50 Bloods or 50 Squid is a sweet prize... 50 Hoppers was kinda cheesy.

    At this point, i don't need anymore no-trade row or village deeds... i want 3rd place damnit!
    :D

    R91 3rd place : 50 hoppers
    R92 3rd place : 50 blood leeches
    R93 3rd place : 50 tiny squids

    Yes indeed, I don't find those 3rd place rewards very balanced and fair to be honest. I feel like people winning 3rd place on R91 have been badly screwed :(

    I'm not here to claim anything, just wanted to know why such a difference.
    Hoppers are common baits, blood leeches and squids are rare baits. The value difference between those is pretty huge.
