    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 23rd at Noon CT to Friday the 30th at Noon CT, and these are the prizes and goals for the indicated week:

    Largest FETID Fish (Town):
    -- Rules: Must be caught from one of these towns. Governors can request a loaner water conversion statue to meet water requirements.
    -- Prizes: Player Owned Town Row Lot Deed, Large Gold Fishing Trophy

    Duanor, Near Noreach (@Raven Swiftbow)
    Silverdale Market (@Xee)
    Britt Mart (@Tailz)

    Largest Fish (PvP):
    -- Rules: Must be caught in Kas Ruins
    -- Prizes: 2 Chained Obsidian Shard 3-Packs, Large Silver Fishing Trophy

    Largest Lava Fish:
    -- Rules: Must be caught in K'rawl
    -- Prizes: Fishing Rod of Prosperity, Large Bronze Fishing Trophy

    Participation Prizes:
    -- Rules: Everyone who caught at least 1 trophy fish in this week's locations
    -- Prizes: Small Silver Fishing Trophy

    CROSS-OVER EVENTS:
    Prizes provided by the Community Manager will be available for participants and winners of the Fishing event, but governors, guild leaders and players are welcome to sweeten the pot by providing additional prizes based on objective criteria entirely of their own design. In fact, please consider planning events to overlap the duration and chosen weekly locations of the PvP and Fishing developer events. Please post these events in the in-game events forums and the Community Manager will promote accordingly. Please submit links to event threads which take place in the spotlighted towns, PvP zone or PvE zone.

    Current Crossovers:
    -- Duanor: Starting at Noon CT on Friday, the Hamlet of Duanor will host its first fishing contest! In honor of this grand event, and despite our small size, Raven Swiftbow has introduced a spinoff contest with fantastic objectives and prizes! For more information about this event, please see the main forum post on the official forums.


    NEXT WEEK'S ROUND OF POTs:
    To aid governors better plan, the next round of POTs to compete (Freshwater) will be from Noon to Noon, Friday to Friday, October 30th to November 6th:
    Salem (@StarLife)
    Crystal Cove, Mistrendur Near Lamech's Bazaar (@Scooby Doo
    Cottage Grove (@spainchaud)

    HOW TO PARTICPATE:
    To participate, players need merely catch trophy fish in the 5 locations indicated above. The locations will change every week at Noon CT on Friday, so be sure to pay attention to the announcements for new locations each week! Please do not send your fish to Elgarion via the in-game mail system. Through data logging, he'll be able to determine the winners. SO please hold on to your fish, and feel free to use them in any fashion after the catch.

    Alrighty, ready for feedback and also ready for Town Registrations! Not sure how many towns will be in the first of these events, but we'll see how many submissions we get. My goal is to keep player activity somewhat compressed to encourage more player interactivity, so it'll be likely 3 or so towns max each week.

    @Elgarion Is the leader boards system being adapted or extended to track this? It would be nice if so, not only would it help you as it could track the event for you, but also give players insight into where they stand currently. I guess it that becomes really successful, then it could be further extended with a verbal Darkstarr notification of, "We're throwing you back!" when a current leader in a category gets bumped.

    @Elgarion My main concern for this event is that towns with different water types have different size of fish, especially the salt water fish are much larger than the fresh water ones, so it would be nice if the towns each week had the same type of water. Or alternatively have different prize pool for different water types.
    Also is fishing in dungeon located in town okay to get fish from fetid water even if the town has fresh water?

    Town owners can place deco to change their water variety... if any town participating does not have these items or are too strapped to purchase, I can loan them one. Not sure why there isn't a conversion to fresh water, but perhaps the largest fish sizes aren't there anyway. Not positive... I'll learn more about the ranges of fish sizes per fish soon, so I can vary the fishing objectives each week.

    My goal for having a small # of towns each week is to promote side-by-side community gameplay, and not having people hiding in their dungeon to fish. Also, I'm not positive what the tooltip would say that fish was fished from, if fished from a dungeon. If it doesn't say the source town, then it's definitely a no. PERHAPS though... one week we do dungeon fishing competitions as a separate concept once I see tooltips from fishies coming from dungeons.

    So swamp towns still have fresh water? Coastal are still fresh too? That's awfully weird, but I'm not arguing -- thanks Alley :)

    Got you on the list, thanks Lord Andernut -- you make #3, so the first week this goes live (likely Friday at Noon until Friday the next week, it'll be Dragomir Mori, Caer Dracwych and New Britannian Market.
    Devil's Lair added to the registry Trinity! I've decided to limit it to 3 towns per week (the goal being trying to get players into the same scenes together in a bit more compressed fashion), so you'll be one of the 3 the following week. And keep in mind, now that you're on the registry, it'll loop back to hit your town again.
