I'm looking forward to attending this event and representing Duke Jones' Razor-Free Fish.

Thank you very much for setting it up!

What happens with any tmaps or mibs fished up by an individual, at the end of the event?

Question:

Will there be ANY intervention by [$$$] members in charge of navigation if and when Fishermen are attacked by water eles, sea and deep sea serps?

Or will this be a dynamic of the Fishing contest?

Fishermen will need to be able to defend themselves. My fisher can definitely knock these out easy though, so i'll pitch in.

I think killing your own serps, etc should be a dynamic of the contest.
If you were alone fishing you would have to kill these mobs anyway.
besides it is possible to pull tmaps off of a serp, so it can acutally help you in the event. This is only my opnion.



Also are you allowed to use razor? I ask because with razor, even if you pull up a serp, you can keep on fishing much easier as you are killing it. Figured I ask cause there was no rule about it.

Great event about time, fishing gets some love :)

Razor is fine.

As noted in the original post, t-maps from serpents are not counted. I anticipated having to help kill them because they may otherwise get in the way. If they don't seem to be in the way, then I will perhaps then let stay around and attack their fisher ;)
