An extremely powerful mage, this mouse uses his powers to commune with the meteorite and control the phases of the night. Performing powerful rituals to bend the darkness to his will, he empowers his fellow Shadow mice by giving them more time to lay siege to your fort.

Failing to catch the Nightmancer Mouse allows him to complete his ritual, pushing back the dawn and extending the night by 3 hunts.

Mouse ID#: 846

Hunting Strategy

Shadow traps are very effective against the Nightmancer Mouse. Arcane traps are of normal effectiveness.
The Nightmancer Mouse can only be encountered during the Twilight, Midnight, Pitch, and Utter Darkness phases at Nighttime in Fort Rox.
Once a hunter has upgraded the Fort Rox fort to the Sunsilver Ballista, it is no longer possible to miss a Nightmancer.

Upon a failure to catch a Nightmancer, the following message is displayed in the Hunter's Journal:

The night sky darkens... Failing to catch the Nightmancer Mouse extended the night by 3 hunts.

If the hunter also has the Sunsphere Enchantment upgrade, the failure to catch message includes an additional line:

Even the power of my Sunsphere Enchantment had no effect on this mouse!
