    Cool, Thanks @Elgarion…Easy to get to Rock Ridge…the middle island of Mistrendur, along the west sea coast with fast travel connections in Central Brittney at the docks, Noreach at the docks and Crafter’s Town at the Docks…

    We also have two Fishing Dungeons… Careful one is just fishing but the bigger one is full of critters…We are also doing a side event during this week’s event…We are offering a bounty for the largest Fish of each water type caught in Rock Ridge during the main weekly CatNip fishing contest…The top (longest) fish for each water type is worth 500 Gold Crowns for the winning fisherpersons…the plan is to have fish turned into the chests on the bulletin board side of the crafting pavilion behind all the Vendor Row Lots in Vendor Square…The entries for this special event will be returned to each participant shortly after the end of the weekly CatNip event… All entries must be caught during the weekly CatNip event – this Friday at noon until next Friday at noon…Please turn in your largest saltwater fish caught in Rock Ridge unless your fish could win the main contest… If that is the case contact Dougan Redhammer so a visual confirmation can be made on the turned in fish…

    To find the dungeons move to the bulletin board at the main dock, look down and follow the paver path until you find the fish statues that mark the entry point for the dungeons…Good LUCK and thank you for visiting…

    For the other bounties please read the postings on the bulletin board at the docks…

    Good Luck Everyone and Hope to see you in Rock Ridge!!

    Dougan Redhammer

    Thanks @Phamyns here is what will happen in Rock Ridge this week...


    Have you been trying to get your hands on “The Fish Finder Cloak?”

    Join us this week in Rock Ridge for the Catnip Games Weekly Fishing Tourney one (1) of the special “The Fish Finder Cloak” cloaks will be given to the angler who catches the largest fish in Rock Ridge during this week’s contest…the fish must have been caught between Friday June 19th Noon CST and Friday June 26th before 12:00 Noon CST.
    If you catch a huge fish and turn it in to @Elgarion cool but let Dougan Redhammer know so the catch can be confirmed and entered for the contest… All other entries can be placed in one of the Chests under the bulletin board wall of the crafting pavilion behind the rows of row lots along the water front….All fish will be returned after the contest result are confirmed.
    Thanks @Phamyns

    Welcome to Knightmare Falls, Lained

    Your best options is the following:
    - Search for a local Galleon ship in your area.
    - Choose Mistrendur as your favorite destination
    - Once you're off the boat, head east and stick to shoreline until you find a ferry willing to take to the island (this is roughly past about 5 smaller islands)
    - After enjoying a lovely trip to the Head of the Serpent, take the path that heads to the north and then turns to the northwest.
    - Knightmare Falls is the second town on the right.

    We'll keep the fires going for ya!

    Announcing the Outlander Welcome Center (OWC) Sharptooth Catfish Contest (A contest for the non-pros!)

    Update - Due to the large turnout for the first contest, the Governor has added a second contest for Large Sharptooth Catfish. Same rules, info and prizes now apply for the three largest Large Sharptooth Catfish as well!


    Hear Ye, Fellow Fishers of the Fetid Waters! The three largest Sharptooth Catfish caught in the OWC and placed in the chest on the porch of the Outlander Inn during this week's fishing contest will win the following prizes:
    • Largest Sharptooth Catfish - Fishing Rod of Prosperity (non-vault!) and 100 Drudge Leeches
    • Second Largest Sharptooth Catfish - 50,000 gold
    • Third Largest Sharptooth Catfish - Bait Pack including; 10 Pale Leeches, 10 Drudge Leeches, 5 Sardines, 5 Herring and 100 Hoppers
    Q. Why Sharptooth Catfish? They aren't the largest or rarest fetid fish.
    A. Exactly! The largest/rarest fish will be sent to @Elgarion for the weekly fishing contest so Sharptooth Catfish won't interfere with that contest.
    Q. Why give prizes for those fish? Anyone can catch one.
    A. To have fun! This is a contest anyone can win even if you don't catch the rarest or largest fish.
    Q. What do I do with my Sharptooth Catfish if I think I can win?
    A. Go to the central bridge and look on the front porch of the Outlander Inn for a deposit only chest with a small silver fishing trophy in front of it. Deposit your fish and your name and fish will be recorded.
    Q. What if there are many fish of the same size?
    A. First fish put in the chest in wins, so get fishing NOW (chests have a View Log feature to show order of submission)!
    Q. Where is the OWC?
    A. Up on the hill just outside of Soltown.

    Good luck!

    OWC is on the hill right outside of Soltown.

    Pro-tip: For extra fishing catching goodness follow the stream to your left from the landing bridge until you get to Dainty Flower's fishing shack. On the porch you'll notice a practice dummy that, oddly enough, is named Johnkirk Bayard Jr. The word is killing the practice dummy gives a +5 fishing buff ...

    IF for some reason you do not get the buff send a nasty in game mail to @Bayard .

    Greetings good citizens of Novia – The Results are in!!


    I would like to start this missive with a resounding “Thank You” to everyone who fished the Waters of Rock Ridge this last week…I can’t express enough how fun for me it was to see so many people catching fish and Sharks. It was very nice to meet so many people and to see the great competitors now in the fishing arena.


    I am pleased to announce the winners of the 1st ever Rock Ridge Catnip Games Weekly Fishing Contest Spin off event…

    This was a wonderful effort by all the anglers and resulted in the following winners this week…


    The Largest Salt Water Fish – A Large Tiger Shark coming in at 5.07 by Engel wins 500 COTO’s


    Thanks to a special prize from @Phamyns & @Elgarion the biggest fish caught in Rock Ridge for the week also gets “The Fish Finder Cloak” as an added award.


    Many Tiger Sharks were taken from the waters of Rock Ridge this week and it may take some time to replenish them.


    The largest Fresh Water Fish – A Large King Salmon coming in at 2.6 also by Engel wins 500 COTO’s


    The largest Fetid Fish – An Alligator Gar coming in at 2.41 also by Engel wins 500 COTO’s


    In addition a group buy in event was held with a 100 COTO anti with a winner take all payout… This was also won by Engle whose Large Tiger Shark coming in at 5.07 wins that prize pool also…that amounted to 1000 COTO’s


    Again – thank you all for taking part in this event…Engle is the big winner this time around…


    I am looking forward to the next time Catnip Games Weekly Fishing Contest visits Rock Ridge.


    Look for even more ways to win in the future…


    Take care, be safe and be healthy…
