A dark and dangerous forest that earned its moniker from its blanket of billowing green fog and the inescapable sense of dread that envelops all those who dare approach it. The trees seem to close around you, choking out the light, while the shadows of the unknown dance in the distance behind the glow of a mysterious hut.

A very spooky place indeed!

Overview

The 2022 Halloween event takes place in Gloomy Greenwood in Burroughs region.
It requires the rank of Recruit.

During this event, the Hunter aims to ultimately capture Baba Gaga.
That requires the Hunter to hunt through several stages with corresponding types of cheese, each with its own mouse pool and loot.

Hunting Strategy

Hunting Tips by Larry

A coughing figure emerges from the trees in a plume of smoke. As they fan the smoke away, you recognize the familiar face of Larry!

He extinguishes a small flame from the tip of his Moustache as he greets you.

Greetings Hunter and welcome to the Gloomy Greenwood!

The good news is we finally found a way into this dark and mysterious place! The bad news is someone else beat us to it!

I was sent out with a small band of the King's finest to discover the source of the green smoke that has been billowing out of this murky wooded area recently. To our surprise, we stumbled upon a tiny, chicken-legged hut that seems to have just wandered in to roost in the middle of the woods! We approached cautiously and heard the most wonderfully horrific vocalizations coming from the creature inside. The angelic voice echoed through the trees as it sang a soothing but unsettling song that sent shivers down my spine.

I looked inside and couldn't believe my eyes! It was Baba Gaga! THE Baba Gaga! Known throughout Gnawnia for her mastery of dark magic, alchemy, and the performing arts! I always thought she was just a legend but boy was I wrong! Her captivating performance was accompanied by dancing cauldrons that hung on her every word as they bubbled and brewed up batches of strange and potent cheeses as well as another dark and sinister-looking solution that was hastily bottled and put away before Baba Gaga exited the hut.

The whole forest seemed to be enchanted by Baba Gaga's hypnotic voice. She appeared to be using this mystical melody to enthrall the mice of the Gloomy Greenwood by offering unparalleled strength, unlimited wealth, and unimaginable power! She sang tales of how the mice of Gnawnia would rise up and overthrow the King and his Hunters as long as they continued to gather and bring her the precious ingredients she needed to complete her sinister concoctions.

The King needs your help in putting a stop to Baba Gaga's dastardly plot and the only way to do it is to use her own cauldrons and recipes against her!

You must use Baba Gaga's Recipe Book and her two enchanted cauldrons to brew up batches of bait to lure different groups of mice out of the woods. Each mouse group is partial to gathering specific ingredients and has a penchant for a particular type of cheese. Start hunting with any Standard Bait (or your old Halloween cheeses) and gather up the first ingredient to get started. Consult the recipe book and it will tell you what you need to do.

The cauldrons themselves are magical and will automatically brew any recipe that you throw into them! They are even capable of starting new brews on their own if you have enough excess ingredients to queue them up!

You must brew your way up to Scream Cheese as that's the only thing shrill enough to interrupt Baba Gaga's enchanting melody and lure her out of hiding. Capture that frighteningly talented witch and put an end to her nefarious plan!

Baba Gaga's most sought after ingredient is a dangerously powerful herb called Mousedrake Root. Only the spookiest mice in the Gloomy Greenwood are daring enough to collect it in large quantities. Unlike all other ingredients that grow in these woods, Mousedrake Root is the only one capable of brewing Baba Gaga's secret weapon: Evil Extract. This wicked liquid is what Baba Gaga uses to create the most powerful and valuable potions that Gnawnia has ever known! I recommend brewing up as much Evil Extract as you can and exchanging it in the General Store for some of her coveted concoctions!

Hunt these spooky mice, collect their ingredients, and brew up your own batches of bone-chilling baits and Evil Extract! Master the cauldrons until you can brew something loud enough to attract Baba Gaga's attention.

Be wary once the singing stops...
