    This 7-day, worldwide contest hopes to promote fishing in Shroud of the Avatar and fully explore the possibilities of the fishing system. The goal is to get as many people as possible to catch a trophy fish and reward anglers for the largest catches in-game overall and the largest trophy type of fish.

    Each contestant is automatically entered to win a raffle for a PoT Taxed Village Deed. Just send one trophy fish to be entered to win.

    The total Gold Crowns of the Obsidian awarded is based on the number of unique contestants:

    New Prizes!

    I am adding two new prizes:

    • Total Fish Caught - 50 coto's
    • Total Length of Fish Caught - 50 coto's
    This new prizes are only awarded if we exceed 1000 length of fish. Currently we are ~300-400.

    If we go nuts and there are 5000 length of fish caught, I will add these prizes:

    • 1st place total fish caught - 100 coto's
    • 2nd place total fish caught - 75 coto's
    • 3rd place total fish caught - 50 coto's
    • 1st place total length of fish caught - 100 coto's
    • 2nd place total length of fish caught - 75 coto's
    • 3rd place total length of fish caught - 50 coto's

    Portalarium Employee Contest
    Shawn and I would like to extend a prize to the largest fish caught by an employee at Portalarium. Preferably a case of your favorite beverage. I think it’s a no holds barred contest in our eyes. You should catch the fish, no generating them from thin air, on your developer account in production and submit them the same way as other contestants.

    Ties
    It’s possible that more than one person will catch exactly the same fish and size during the contest. The winners will get to vote on either a raffle drawing for the total prize or to split the prize with the other winners.

    Winning Multiple Prizes
    It is possible for one angler to win more than one prize with one catch!
    However, for the top 3 overall prizes:
    • An angler is only eligible to win one of those prizes.
    • Ties will be decided as described above.
    Valid Catches and Submitting Entries
    Contestants must send any fish they want in the contest to Titania Xylia via in-game mail or dropped in the chest placed in TItanforge at the dock. Screenshots will not be eligible as entry. You may request your submission back at anytime during the contest unless it is currently on the leaderboard.

    The in-game date on your trophy entry must translate to within the contest’s start and stop time The in-game date, location, angler, fish type and fish length on the fish itself will be used to award the prizes.
    I would like for the winning fish to be on display in Titanforge for one week after the contest ends, but this is at the angler’s discretion.

    The current leaderboard will be available on shroudoftheavatar.net and a display will be running during the event showing off the fish currently in the lead at Titanforge.

    Remember to ask everyone you know, if they have sent me a trophy for consideration. The more players we have. The bigger the prizes!

    For the "uncommon" fish, especially the smaller ones - there could be many ties with exactly the same size.

    Suggestion - go by the largest size, then by earliest in-game date. Then there should only be ties if it's within the same in-game day (1 hour IRL).

    Sounds a bit fishy to me....

    Hehe..

    Fun tournament you and Shawn have set up!

    How is the fish size calculated?
    By weight? Does size do anything to the weight? Could you have a short fat fish?

    I believe length is the measure in the system. However, I will lay the fish out and visually compare them to determine the largest. Agreed it might get tricky!

    I am giving away a True Bronze Engraved Fishing Rod and bait to anyone that needs one, so entry is entirely free at that point. I will be on the overworld map handing them out from time to time over the next week.

    Also, if you want to feature your town with a prize in this context, it isn't too late. Hit me up here, on discord or in-game with the details and I'll update the prize list.

    Length is the only variable that will be different.

    What fun! I just had my first fishing experience yesterday and looks like just in time! I'll be looking for you Titania to get that special fishing rod. Mine is a beat up old used one (but I did succeed in catching four trophy fish albeit very small). I don't have a ton of time this week but perhaps this coming weekend. Looking forward to exploring the world more and seeing what is out there!

    Safe trav... er... fishing!

    @Titania Xylia - Just to clarify, you want just the trophy fish to be submitted, not a "mounted" trophy fish, correct?

    @Daxxe Diggler Yeah, just send the fish. It's fine if it is a trophy though. I'm laying the fish out on the ground now, but I'm going to put them on a table and it'll be nice if they are laid out in the same orientation instead of some on the wall, some on the floor, some on a table.
