There is More to the Story

The story of the Folklore Forest has been edited, updated, and embellished with many exciting new plot points, details, and even a brand new character!

The Gloomy Greenwood Returns...

The harrowing hut has returned to nest in the Gloomy Greenwood for this year's Halloween celebration and with it, the spine-tingling siren song of the spooktacular Baba Gaga!

Are you brave enough to travel back to the Gloomy Greenwood, conquer her collectors, command her cauldrons, and capture the most ghoulish performer of all time?

Collect Ingredients, Load the Cauldrons, and Start Brewing =

The only way to defeat Baba Gaga and her monstrous minions is to use her own enchanted cauldrons against her! You'll need to collect ingredients from the mice in the Gloomy Greenwood and then put those ingredients into the cauldrons in order to start brewing up spooky flavours of cheese!

Click on either cauldron to open up Baba Gaga's Recipe Book where you'll find all the information you need to start brewing her sinister concoctions.

Start by using any basic bait to catch the least spooky mice in the Gloomy Greenwood and collect the Pungent Pumpkins that they are carrying. If you have any leftover Halloween event cheese from previous years then you can use that instead of basic bait.

Add these Pungent Pumpkins into a cauldron based on Baba Gaga's recipe to brew a batch of Monterey Jack-O-Lantern. With Monterey Jack-O-Lantern armed, you'll be able to attract spookier mice who drop spookier ingredients.

Each tier of mice will drop the ingredient you need to make the next tier of cheese. There are four different types of cheese and each one will attract a unique pool of Halloween event mice. Work your way up to Scream Cheese in order to attract the villainous Baba Gaga herself!

When hunting with any of the new types of cheese, mice will also drop a very valuable ingredient called Mousedrake Root. Use this potent component to distill Baba Gaga's most powerful brew: Evil Extract!

Evil Extract can be traded in at the Apothecary (General Store) for a wide selection of existing potions as well as some brand new and extremely powerful ones that were created by Baba Gaga herself! Open up the "Shops" tab in Baba Gaga's Recipe Book to get a detailed look at all the available potions and what each of them can do.

Useful Utilities for Better Brewing

Igniting this incense will add +1 to all ingredients dropped by a mouse in the Gloomy Greenwood, including Mousedrake Root! This incense can be ignited from the Gloomy Greenwood Heads-Up Display and is available from the Reward Track and the Premium Shop.
