    Wow, so cool, just for the record though, I will only be fishing for the largest fish (for Catnips weekly contest) and for the smallest Trophy fish for your contest... I will not be turning in all my trophy fish for the week...I would also like to add to the prize pool if possible...100K gold for a random drawing for all the participants...If you can do that, one entry per participant...you can do one award or maybe give out two or even several...Up to you :) Use the 100k gold as you see best :)

    With all that, Good Luck to everyone!! This should be great fun :)

    This is great! Thanks Sonja and also Drachnyen and Dougan for sweetening the pot! Make sure to have plenty of trunks ready, I'm sure Flair will have at least 1000 fish to turn in for the week's most fish award! LOL

    Greetings everyone! After many sleepless nights of playing with hundreds of fishies the results are finally in for the first fishing event sponsored by the Ladies' and Gentlemen's Fishing Club of Britannia! :)

    576 fishies were turned in by 51 fishers, including a few from PaxLair, Novia Market, Whyte Roc and Rinzai. @Sean Silverfoot was gracious enough to accept some of the lost PaxLair fish. I'd be happy to help all lost fishies swim their way home.
    • Sir Flair Minamoto @Flair fished up an incredible 141 trophy fishies during the event and won a lucky seven total prize categories as a result, including 1,000 crowns sponsored by C0-Founder @Drachnyen
    • Sir Spryon DeRonin @Spryone turned in the largest fish a 3.4 Small Tiger Shark
    • Multiple fishers fished up Treasure Maps leading to buried treasure chests in Brittany Fort and Long Lost Love Letters in Liquor bottles Leading to Lover's Loot co-sponsored by Co-Founder @Zeek Latreck
    • Lady Brutess fished up the only lucky fishy, a 2.22 Small Bluefin Tuna! Apparently lucky fishies are much more rare than I expected. @Ser Kyrlieon
    • Lady Peach Pitt @Peach and Lady jeanine won the random draws sponsored by Co-Founder @Redhammer
    • There were ties in three prize categories, including a three way tie on the Mahi-Mahi, so those prizes will be shared by the winners.
    Everyone is welcome to come pick up their fish in Brittany Fort at any time. I will mail out all the prizes soon.

    I had a wonderful time fishing and treasure hunting with you all. ❤


    Yours truly,

    Governor Sonja Solar

    Greetings everybody! :)

    Two week leisurely fishy event for casual fishers - Oct 2 to Oct 18 midnight Britannia time. ✨

    I don't have time to organize anything as elaborate as the last event with treasure maps and love letters, however the Ladies' and Gentlemen's Fishing Club of Britannia will be sponsoring some lucky prizes that even casual and new fishers may win at Brittany Fort for the next two weeks.
    • Catnip Player Owned Town Row Lot Deed, Large Gold Fishing Trophy for biggest fishy first week
    • $100,000 gold for any lucky fishies! (.88, .99, 1.11, 2.22, etc)
    • $100,000 gold random draw (1 entry per fishy type, 7 entries max)
    • $100,000 gold for biggest fishy overall
    • $100,000 gold for tiniest fishy overall
    • Catnip Small Silver Fishing Trophy for any size trophy fishy first week
    Please loving place your fishies in the fishy bags on the bar in the Inn, they will stay alive in these magical bags. Ties will be decided by a die roll.

    If you'd like to sponsor another category please let me know, I'm sure everyone would be very grateful. ❤


    Yours truly,

    Sonja

    Good afternoon, Lady @Tellana ! :)

    Aww, oh my gosh Lady Tellana, that's so, so, so sweet of you! I love, love, love your little tour and will forever treasure it! ❤

    As requested, it'd be my absolute pleasure to make honorary copies of the 1st Brittany Fort Fishing Event books for both you and Sir @FrostII, bananas included! :p The community fishing and working together on that first fishy event in many generous and talented ways was one of the most wonderfully heart melting experiences I've ever had in Britannia and I'd love for you both to have a part of that history on your bookshelves.

    Here's the original event topic: https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/f...ny-fort-leisurely-fishing-competition.154207/

    Unfortunately it's locked, or I'd add your video of the top 10 fishies and book. :( I'll ask if it can be unlocked.


    Yours truly,

    Sonja

    Greetings everybody!

    I've finally found time to finish sorting and tabulating all the fishies for the Leisurely Lucky Fetid Fishing event in Brittany Fort! Unfortunately, nobody turned in any lucky fishes this time for 100,000 gold each. Some fishers like Zeek Latreck, Fiero Steele, Revenant, Jarvi Mystara, xing tye, Ancient Druid, LordBeowulf and Duursyrras Bohdie didn't check or turn in any of their Brittany Fort fishies at all and others like Corlag Brudeloc mentioned that they chopped up all their poor little Brittany Fort fishies without checking them! :eek:

    There was a 12 way tie for tiniest fishy, a tie of the likes I've never seen before in any event! There's something funky about those fetid fishies! :p
    • $100,000 gold for largest fishy - 2.99 Large Sturgeon caught by Corlag Brudeloc @Corlag TheBard - Corlag's giant Brittany Fort fishy also won the Catnip player owned town row lot deed and a large gold fishing trophy!
    • $100,000 gold for tiniest fishy - 1.26 Sharptooth Catfish caught by Stimplin OReilly @SkyWalker5976 - 12 fishers tied for tiniest fishy including @Tellana, @queenbee, @Rook Strife, @Sagewise, @Mogul Razdunk, @shadowvice, @Joe Zhudarak, @Phythia, @Moork Falls, @Ser Kyrlieon's daughter Brutess and @GenieUK. @FrostII who is not a participant did a /roll 12 for me in Britannia on 10/31/20 and got an 8 for Stimplin OReilly.
    • $100,000 gold random draw - 1.26 Sharptooth Catfish caught by @Ser Kyrlieon's daughter Brutess. @Strider99 who is not a participant did a /roll 31 for me in Britannia on 10/31/20 and got a 22 for Brutess.
    • $100,000 gold for each lucky fishy - nobody turned any in this time. :(

    Special thanks to all those I've been told streamed any of their fishy fun including @Corlag TheBard, @Tellana, @The Revenant, @Mogul Razdunk, @Oxford and @dinheru. Thank you very much to @Lazarus Long for mentioning the event on NBNN News. If there's anyone I missed please let me know. ❤
