    I took Krabnevir and Falling Waters Fortress off the list for R99. I failed to update the main thread here though. Sorry. I hope people did not waste their time there. I think I cancelled those in other places on the forum here so maybe the word got out. I will do better in R100.

    Ahoy! I finally entered the Fishing Tournament yesterday! I'm on the leaderboard, not very high up and not with many Trophy fish caught. A keen eye can probably figure out who I am on the board.

    Rest assured, my cousin Winston gives me NO HELP at fishing. Not even a worm!

    Winfield vs Winston:

    In other words, my Winfield SotA account is my personal player account and will always be that. It is totally separate from the Winston Dev account that is owned by Catnip Games, not me.

    I am personally invested in my Winfield account with Lord of the Manor to Lord of the Isle, and from PaxLair to PaxLocus (my future quest player town in Mistrendur). I will continue to support SotA as a player too (I really miss the telethons!). So no GM stink allowed on my Winfield account. Keep away, Winston!​

    Happy fishing! I need more bait and skill and teleport scrolls... off to the alchemy table and fishmonger!

    nothing wasted, caught a large & regular pacu for my collection and a few extra as I was down to my last backed pacu it's just a bonus when pacu towns align with the catnip tourney. #nomnomnom

    Keep it anonymous. Much more fun trying to guess who is who.

    UPDATE: R100 Release is LIVE, but the R99 Contests are still underway until Midnight (CDT).
    The start/stop datetimes for R100 Contests:
    01-Apr-2022 at 12AM CT (00:00) to 28-Apr-2022 11:59 PM CT (23:59)

    Marse 27, 641 P.C. to Marse 26, 643 P.C.
    • Keep an eye on the Teleport to Zone scroll window today. It now shows the scenes for the R99 contests (fishing and treasure hunt).
    • But, at midnight CDT (Austin Texas), they should automagically change to R100 contests (fishing and treasure hunt). That will indicate the R100 contests are LIVE and R99 contests have ended!
    • So you still have have a few hours to get those last fish caught and treasures hunted/collected in the R99 contests to sneak into the top 3 or move up more!

    CONTEST STATUS BOARDS:
    I have the two leaderboards/status boards: Fishing Tournament and Treasure Hunt. They are updated on SotAWiki "manually" a few times a day.
    • I am keeping all the player names Anonymous (assigning "fun" names).
    • R99 leaderboard "fun" names will change to completely different ones in R100, so do try to correlated R99 and R100 anonymous "fun" names. You will need to try to figure out which "fun" name was assigned to you.

    Fishing Tournament:

    Treasure Hunt:

    I will announce the top three winners' names via the Forum Threads as usual and get trophies and prizes out to the winners. I will not change the SotAWiki leaderboards "fun" names to real names.

    Have fun!!

    Winners should receive an item that is their anonymous name but renamed as monster hunter/master angler trophy. :)

    Wow! Blackrock Cove, 1 Million Gold to the 1st place winner IF the longest fish for POT category is caught in Blackrock Cove!

    That's worth a camping trip with the family!

    I guess I need to add more data to the leaderboard/statusboard ... Longest Fish and anonymous name of player who caught it, in each POT. (maybe show the top 3 in each POT)

    Ah, it's only a huge web page ... easy (I think). I'll work on that. Fun!!

    Game On!

    Outstanding!!!

    This contest requires personal attention by the anglers and the contest sponsors. In other words, read their thread carefully on how to enter, get a bag, get tenant access, etc. This is GREAT involvement using many game mechanics. Very nice to see!

    Here's what Adam Crow said as of today:


    Each entrant can enter their five longest fish and the winners will be the top 10 entrants with the longest total length combined! (caught in Novia Market during release 100 only)

    *Prizes for the 5 longest fish*
    • 1st - 250,000 gold
    • 2nd - 200,000 gold
    • 3rd - 150,000 gold
    • 4th - 100,000 gold
    • 5th - 50,000 gold
    • 6-10 - 25,000 gold
    To enter, contact Adam Crow by mail in game or a direct message on these forums - send me your exact player name.

    I'm going to send a small bag to each entrant renamed to their exact name. I'll then assign tenant access to the first row lot on the right - straight ahead when you first enter Novia Market. It's an empty row with a stage and an obsidian shard. Just place your bags on that stage and you can use that to keep track of your 5 longest trophy fish. Good luck fishing!

    -- Adam Crow

    Again, go to their forum thread for the details and get to fishing in Novia Market! It's part of the Catnip Fishing Tournament too! Find "Novia Market" in blue on your Teleport to Zone Scroll window.

    For towns doing R100 contests (all month), I suggest you use the same start/end datetimes for our leaderboards/statusboards. Then, I can perhaps also support you with data. R100 tournament goes until Midnight after R101 is released, just like happened yesterday with R99 tournament still active. That is by design, so people can get their last fishing in!

    But towns, you can set the start/end datetimes as you desire of course. This is just a suggestion.

    R100 Fishing Tournament runs:
    • Central Daylight Time (US): 01 Apr 2022 at 00:00 (12:00 am) CDT to 28 Apr 2022 at 23:59 (11:59 pm) CDT
    • UTC (GMT): 01 Apr 2022 at 05:00 UTC to 29 Apr 2022 at 04:59 UTC
    • In-game Date: Marse 27, 641 P.C. to Marse 26, 643 P.C.

    R99 Contest Winners ... I am working today to validate winners. I have to query the data directly to double check my leaderboards. I am out most of today, so I hope to have the winner announcement by tonight (Fish Fry Friday).

    Sorry for the delay. Leaderboard for R99 shows results, but anonymous names.
