Huh. That... huh.

If you want to watch a community livestream about Shroud of the Avatar’s community team hosting a fishing contest in fetid water, gosh, today is your day. The stream itself is starting at 5:00 p.m. EDT, and players can just hang out in the South Fetid Swamp and fish. Longest fish caught by 6:00 p.m. EDT wins a prize, along with other prizes for the runners-up in the impromptu contest.

For those of you who don’t feel like spending your Friday evening in a stinking swamp trying to catch fish, the other big news of this particular update chiefly concerns things players can pick up in the game’s microtransaction store, including butterflies and new outfits. There are also some free reward items to celebrate Richard Garriott’s birthday and a discount to go along with that event. Check out the full newsletter to get a more detailed rundown of the sales and the items in question, or just head into the swamp for fishing later today.

Is… is this an ad?

It’s one thing to report on newsworthy events, but streaming fishing contests aren’t new. Crafting changes get no mention, but this? What about Richard Garriot being almost entirely AWOL from the game development?

Look! *unfurls a list which rolls across the room and out the door* There’s other topics which could be covered.

I’d love to know A) how many hours a week he puts into his development role B) what he’s done for the game lately.

I suspect that the article was just an easy way to provide some filler on the website. I’ll bet this took literally five minutes to write.

“Fetid Water” is really just a metaphor here, isn’t it?
