non Dysnomia: - a ProPilkki 2 Guide



A Word from the Webmaster

: I started to compile some information from the game, some forums and some of my own experiences. It started out as a little exercise in webdesign for my own amusement, but soon grew to something bigger. You can see this compilation as a beginners guide to Pro Pilkki 2, and later it may also become a more advanced guide.

This site is still work in progress, but I published it so you can have a little taste.

: There are at the moment 39 lakes in the game, with a good variety of different characteristics. The variety of fish species is also quite wide. To learn more about the different lakes in the game, visit the lake index and find your favorite lake. The information is collected from the infoscreens in the game.


: Work is in progress on a lures index, a bait index and a fishing rod index.


: I've added a step-by-step guide through a practice session that should get you started. Work is also in progress with a game type index.
