You sounded the Hunter's Horn!
The courage of starting the hunt awards you ××× points.
The outcome of your hunt is recorded as a journal entry below.
The Hunter's Horn is a tool that hunters use to start a hunt. After a fixed period of time (see below), they will have the opportunity to click the Hunter's Horn image at the top of the page. This starts the hunt for the player and up to 8 active hunters in their hunting group in the same region, currently online (up to one hour from last activity) and ready to hunt (i.e. with the horn ready, cheese armed, not blocked by a King's Reward or performing another game action such as attempting to sound the horn themselves). Additionally, these hunters must have completed the game tutorial and reached the title of Apprentice while not having restrictions on their account which disable interaction with other players. Clicking the horn also initiates a short "horn blowing" animation and awards experience points to the hunter based on the number of friends taken on a hunt. Sounding the horn always awards 50 points as well as 25 bonus points per friend. The maximum bonus points for sounding the horn is 250.
|Hunter's Title||Duration between horns calls|
|Recruit||Starts at 20 seconds, increasing 5 seconds every additional horn|
|Apprentice and above||15 minutes|
There are several possible outcomes that can result from a hunt. In earlier stages of the game, the outcomes are fewer. The mouse may merely take the piece of cheese without being caught, or it may result in a successful catch, whereby the hunter will collect experience points and gold, depending on the type of mouse caught. In later stages of the game, the mice are more dangerous and, besides taking the cheese without being caught, the mice can affect the hunter's 'courage' on an unsuccessful hunt. This can take the form of the mouse stealing experience points, gold or extra pieces of cheese from the hunter.
The Party Horn was a tool similar to the Hunter's Horn, which replaced the Hunter's Horn when a Hunting Party was participating in an old Tournament.
Like the Hunter's Horn, it is available every 15 minutes. If it has been more than 15 minutes since the player's last hunt, s/he will have the opportunity to click the Party Horn image at the top of the page. This initiates a short "horn blowing" animation and awards experience points to the hunter based on the number of active party members online and ready to hunt at the time of the sounding, regardless of their location.
The outcomes are much like the Hunter's Horn in which mice be caught, lost, not attracted, cheese could go stale, etc. But the main difference is that the Party Horn will award the Hunter with Party Points towards the Tournament depending on which mouse is caught, what the settings of the tournament are, and how high the Multiplier is. Once sounded it will also influence the multiplier which will eventually increase the amount of points that can be received per mouse.
Insta Horn (aka Luck Larry Industries' Insta-Horn-in-a-Can!) was a feature that allowed players to sound their horn without waiting the usual 15 minutes. For a brief time, 5 Insta Horns were given to new players after completing the horn training tutorial. Insta Horns are no longer available, and the development appears to have been abandoned.
