Greetings Anglers! Welcome to the weekly fishing contest instructions thread! These contests run for 1 week intervals, Friday Noon to Friday Noon CT. We'll announce the winners every Friday during the livestream. TOWN REGISTRATION: Each week, the contest takes place in 3 Player Owned Towns, 1 Random PvP location and 1 Random Lava or NPC Town Location. Please register your Player Owned Town of choice in a reply to this thread, 1 entry per player, and these entries will be added into the town registry. The contest will cycle through the towns in the sequence they entered the town registry, then loop back again to the beginning. The town registry will be reset/wiped for new entries periodically to ensure only active/interested towns are within the registry. FISHING PRIZES & OBJECTIVES: All prizes will be no-trade. Players may donate additional prizes in the name of their guilds or towns to sweeten the pot. This event timeframe is Friday the 22nd at Noon CT to Friday the 29th at Noon CT, and these are the prizes and goals for the indicated week: Largest FRESHWATER Fish (Town): -- Rules: Must be caught from one of these towns.
