Hunting Strategy

Hunting Tips by Larry

Thank goodness you're here, hunter! The entire history of Gnawnia is in jeopardy!

The brilliant and terrible Mythweaver has found a way to get through the protective veil of the Folklore Forest and has come here to the Table of Contents with the intentions of rewriting the Book of Lore! Rumour has it that his plan is to rewrite history so that the mice become the heroes and us humans become the evil force that invaded this once peaceful land.

It's up to you to write as many words in as many books as you can to outwrite this literary villain! Collect the Draft Derby Curds that are dropped by the mice here and combine them with the Parable Papyrus that you earned in the Foreword Farm and the Inspiration Ink you earned in the Prologue Pond to create the various flavours of Draft Derby Cheese!

Once you start writing a book, you'll have 25 hunts to write as many words as possible. Each mouse that you catch will contribute a certain number of words based on their point value. Using stronger flavours of Draft Derby Cheese will attract mice with higher point values thereby allowing you to write longer books!

Work your way up to Final Draft Derby Cheese and you'll have a chance to write the longest book: the Encyclopedia of Lore! Once you reach the Encyclopedia, the Mythweaver himself will emerge in an attempt to stop you! Catch the Mythweaver and keep writing, there is no limit to how many volumes of the Encyclopedia you can write!

The longer your books, the more accolades you'll earn in the form of Gnawbel Prizes for Literature, the most prestigious literary award in the Kingdom! And after all, what artist doesn't love awards?
