Foreword Farm is a hunting location in Folklore Forest region.

Foreword Farm, Prologue Pond, and Table of Contents are 3 connected hunting locations.

They require the minimum rank of Archduke/Archduchess and the Legendary Looking Glass to access.

Parable Papyrus earned here can be used to purchase different type of cheese to use in Table of Contents.
Crop Coin earned here can be used to unlock several Upgrades in those 3 locations.

Gameplay Mechanics


In Foreword Farm, the Planting Mechanics are in effect.

  • There are 3 planting plots.
    • The first plot is available as soon as the Hunter enters this location.
    • The second and third plot can be unlocked by spending certain resources in Upgrades.
  • There are 4 types of plant.
  • Planting consumes a cost and places a plant into one plot.
    • Each plot can hold 1 active plant and 1 queued plant.
    • Catching mice help the plants growing.
      • Newly placed plants start at 0 cm.
      • Each catch grows active plants by 10 cm. This can be doubled to 20 cm with the use of Condensed Creativity.
      • Once a plant reaches 200 cm, it will mature, and:
        • The yield is added to the harvest bin.
        • The queued plant becomes active.
  • The Hunter can choose to uproot a plant. Doing so will remove the plant from the plot and refund its cost.
  • The number and type of active plants determine available mice.

Hunting Strategy

Hunting Tips by Larry

Greetings hunter and welcome to the Foreword Farm!

The soil here seems to be enchanted and is unlike anywhere else in the Kingdom! Under the right conditions, you should be able to grow and harvest a new and very valuable crop called Parable Papyrus!

Start by collecting Papyrus Seeds from the Seed Stower mice that are wandering the fields and use them to plant Mythical Mulch Plants. Once you start growing any kind of plant, you'll begin to attract the Petulant Pest mice who have an insatiable appetite for your delicious crops. The more plants you grow, the more pests you'll attract so be ready for these ravenous rascals. Defend your plants from these pests and grow them to maturity in order to collect their bountiful harvest.

Harvesting Mythical Mulch Plants will earn you a potent material called... you guessed it, Mythical Mulch! By planting Papyrus Seeds and Mythical Mulch together, you can grow the extremely valuable Parable Papyrus Plant! The Parable Papyrus that you harvest from this precious plant will become very useful when you get to the Table of Contents.

There is another type of plant available to cultivate here but hunters should be warned that although it's quite valuable to harvest, planting too many of these Twisted plants may attract a very dangerous adversary to your field!

Happy hunting and harvesting!
