Unused references

There are a few referenced locations I came across which don't really seem as relevant as the others. Please add new references to this section as they appear. If there are enough for a certain location, we could add it to the article.

  • Catacombs: The strength of arcane damage increases proportionally against forgotten mice, making the traps especially effective in the Catacombs. (Arcane, 29 January 2009)

  • Eastern island: Gouda arrives in crates that float into the Harbour, seemingly from areas off the eastern coast of Gnawnia. It has a very good chance to attract a variety of mice, and its sharp flavour is a special favourite of the mice who inhabit the islands from where it is assumed to originate. (Gouda, 17 July 2009)

  • Kingdom of Buchelt: Mice that hail from the Kingdom of Buchelt are well-known for their extensive knowledge of forest regions, and these Princess mice are no exception! MouseHunter lore has speculated that the rulers of this strange kingdom appoint many princesses, where others believe these mice are merely off their rockers. (Elven Princess Mouse, 31 March 2009)

After noting the new type of trap listed in the help tab of the trapsmith, and it referenced the catacombs, I did a bit of reading on the forums, which led me to say that it was believed that will be the new location. --Skittlesandmnms 20:45 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Master of the Pagoda?

I understand that the referenced locations may not (and in some cases, do not) actually exist. But I'm wondering two things: 1) Is the Pagoda just referenced, or the actually all-encompassing name for the three areas? and 2) if the latter, from my previous question, why is the Master Mouse of the 'Pagoda' called the Master of the Dojo? Surely the Dojo is only one section. Anyone know? CaitlinK 12:04, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

  • It's the latter. And I think they were called Masters of the Dojo so their name doesn't imply a superiority over the other three Master breeds, considering they all share the same classification (despite Dojo Masters being much stronger). Revengeance 20:02, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  • But if they are much stronger, does that not imply superiority? And it is the last mouse you catch in that area, in terms of strength. You don't go after it if you do not have the proper set up, etc. and you need to catch/defeat the other three masters before you can earn the fight against the Master of the Dojo. Surely the name should be changed. :) CaitlinK 12:03, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
