Whisker Woods

From MHWiki

Whisker Woods is a region released on 31 March 2009. A Calm Clearing Map Piece, obtained by catching a Granite Mouse from the Harbour, is required to travel here. There are currently three known locations:

Tucked behind the dense trees of Whisker Woods is a quiet and peaceful clearing. In the center of the clearing is a glowing boulder with colourful fungi growing around it. The magic rock seems to draw mice near to it, as if empowering them.
A map (dropped by a Granite Mouse in the Harbour) is required to go to the first location of Whisker Woods.
At the edge of Whisker Woods lies a tree older than Gnawnia itself. Its magic roots stretch far underground and deep into the woods, giving life to the other trees. The shadow it casts is so massive that it began to affect the surrounding area through time, blocking necessary light from other trees. As as result, the other trees seem almost alive as they bend back and forth, seeking out the light.
A map (dropped by a Cyclops Mouse in the Calm Clearing) is required to go to this location.
The enticing blue water hypnotizes hunters, distracting them from the dangerous mice that take up residence nearby. The terrain that surrounds the Lagoon is extremely unsteady, comprised of jagged rocks and slick moss. High up in the trees that surround the Lagoon are the nests of Harpy mice who act as a plague to all hunters, stealing their cheese, gold and crippling their courage. Some mice here are not attracted to conventional bait. It is highly recommended that a hunter use Gnarled cheese when hunting at the Lagoon.
A map (dropped by a Fairy Mouse in the Great Gnarled Tree) is required to go to this location.
