You see a gaudy poster at the bank:

Fortune’s Fire Casino is under new management and we’ve mopped up all the blood. Come play Virtue Rats! Pull the paw of the Pirate Cat! Roll the bones with us, ye scurvy landlubbers!


There will not be any combat at this event, so feel free to dress up. Bets will be in 10k increments. Only checks are accepted, but you can change your gold for them at the casino bank. The rules of the games will be posted Saturday evening and will be in books at the casino. There will be a gate from the Counselor Hall.

Zox’s Monthly Fishing Contest!

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Zox Greatsnapper want to habe museum like hummies and der pointy ears!
Zox no havings rare items thoughs.
*looks sad*
Zox only habe shiny pebbles, fishies, and a hat.
Maybe Zox havings Museum of Fish someday!

Help Zox Greatsnapper build her collection of fish! Each month, she will announce a type of fish or crustacean that she is interested in. Leave the heaviest example of the type in the mailbox at the Wedding House by the deadline. The winning fish will be put on display in the Wedding House for a time, then moved to the Award Hall. The curator of the Award Hall has promised Zox she will display them until Zox has enough to build her own Museum.

If your fish is not the heaviest, you may have it back, if you left a house rune to your mailbox with the fish.

All non-winning fish that are left without return information will be cooked and distributed to the hungry peasants of Britain and Paws.

We’ll start off with blue marlin. The blue marlin must be caught sometime between now and June 11th. It must be turned in by June 11th, before 11:59 p.m. CDT. The heaviest blue marlin will be on display in the Wedding House the next day. Blue marlin can be found in Trammel by grandmaster fishers and above.
