The Mountain is a location in [[Gnawnia]] accessible only to hunters of the rank [[Hunter's Title|Journeyman]] and higher. In the original rollout of Mousehunt in March of 2008, the Mountain was the 'last' location, the areas of [[Burroughs]] and [[Furoma]] not yet having been created.

[[Ninja Mouse|Ninja mice]] from the Mountain may drop a map piece to the [[Laboratory]], which [[Hunter's Title|Master]] hunters can access. Other mice types that live here are [[White Mouse]], [[Brown Mouse]], [[Gold Mouse]], [[Diamond Mouse]], [[Granite Mouse]], [[Dwarf Mouse]], [[Steel Mouse]] and the occasional [[Mole Mouse]] and [[Black Widow Mouse]]. Mice can steal points, gold, and cheese from a hunter while in the Mountains.
+
==Overview==
 +
The [[Mountain]] is a location in the [[Gnawnia]] region requiring a minimum rank of [[Journeyman|Journeyman/Journeywoman]] to enter.<br/>
 +
Mice in the [[Mountain]] may steal points, gold, or cheese.<br/>
 +
Hunters accessing the [[Mountain]] for the first time will only have access to [[Physical]] weapons, but the mice here have a weakness to all [[Power Type]]s, '''except''' the [[Ninja Mouse]] which has a weakness only to [[Tactical]] and [[Physical]] weapons.
  
 +
===Introduction to [[Charm]]s===
 +
Purchase a [[Charm Conduit]] from the [[Mountain Charm Shoppe]].
 +
The [[Mountain]] contains the only [[Charm Shoppe]] where Hunters can purchase the [[Charm Conduit]], which allows the arming of [[Charms]].<br/>
  
 +
===Smashing boulders and [[Crafting]] cheese===
 +
[[Hunter]]s will arm charms to smash boulders to obtain [[Chedd-Ore Cheese]] which when armed, attracts mice which drop ingredients for [[Abominable Asiago]].
  
 +
==HUD (Heads Up Display)==
 +
If the Hunter does not own a Charm Conduit yet, the following text is displayed:
 +
:I say, HUZZAH, fellow hunter!
 +
:I'm the foremost Gnawnian scholar in pioneering hunting technology! By merging a '''Charm Conduit''' into your trap, you'll be able to arm a new kind of item called '''charms'''!
 +
:Charms let you boost your trap's power, luck, and do all sorts of things! You'll find new charms throughout Gnawnia, and your conduit will work everywhere.
  
[[Category:Locations]]
+
Once the Hunter purchases the Charm Conduit from the [[#Charm Shoppe|Charm Shoppe]], the HUD reflects the HP of boulders. All boulders have 1,000 HP. The current [[Charm]] armed is also displayed, with the amount of damage said [[Charm]] deals. Damage dealt is equivalent to the '''Power''' of the armed [[Charm]]
[[Category:Gameplay]]
+
 
 +
The HUD tracks the following items:
 +
*Hunter's inventory of [[Small Power Charm]]s, [[Power Charm]]s and [[Super Power Charm]]s.
 +
*Hunter's inventory of [[Brie]], {{SB}}, [[Chedd-Ore Cheese]] and [[Abominable Asiago]].
 +
*Hunter's inventory of [[Faceted Sugar]], [[Iced Curd]] and [[Magic Essence]].
 +
 
 +
Hunters can directly arm or craft with any of the items tracked by the HUD.
 +
 
 +
==Breaking Boulders==
 +
After purchasing a [[Charm Conduit]] from the [[Mountain Charm Shoppe]] for 3,000 gold, hunters can start to arm charms and break boulders. Hunting with [[Standard Cheese]]s in the [[Mountain]] will attract mice that drop [[Small Power Charm]]s. Additionally, [[Charm Shoppe]]s, [[King's Cart]], [[Marketplace]], [[Gift]]s or [[Event]]s all over the kingdom can yield charms.
 +
'''All''' [[Charm]]s can be armed after purchasing the [[Charm Conduit]].
 +
 
 +
The main goal is to deal 1,000 damage to a boulder, which will yield a varying amount of [[Chedd-Ore Cheese]].
 +
Damage dealt is determined by the Power stat of the [[Charm]] armed. Don't hesitate to use higher tiered [[Charm]]s should you have access to them for quicker progress. Arming a [[Charm]] with 1,000 or more power will instantly break the boulder, rewarding [[Chedd-Ore Cheese]] in a single hunt.
 +
 
 +
==Crafting [[Abominable Asiago]]==
 +
After Breaking boulders, arm the looted [[Chedd-Ore Cheese]] to attract [[Slope Swimmer|Slope Swimmer Mice]], [[Craggy Ore|Craggy Ore Mice]] and [[Mountain Mouse|Mountain Mice]]. These 3 mice drop [[Faceted Sugar]] and [[Iced Curd]]s which are used to craft [[Abominable Asiago]] to attract the [[Abominable Snow Mouse]]

==Hunting the [[Abominable Snow Mouse]]==
 +
After collecting sufficient [[Faceted Sugar]] and [[Iced Curd]]s, use the [[Recipe Book]] to craft [[Abominable Asiago]].
 +
Arm [[Abominable Asiago]], which exclusively attracts the [[Abominable Snow Mouse]].
 +
Doing so helps complete the [[Find the Hidden Mountain Pass]] [[Adventure Book]] entry and rewards hunters with a [[Laboratory Map Piece]].
 +
 
 +
==Mice==
 +
All mice in the [[Mountain]], '''except''' the [[Ninja Mouse]], are from the [[Indigenous Mice]] group and are weak to all [[Power Type]]s.<br/>
 +
The [[Ninja Mouse]] is one of the [[Followers of Furoma]] and [[Tactical]] traps are very effective against it.  [[Physical]] traps are of normal effectiveness. All other [[Power Type]]s are ineffective.
 +
 
 +
===Cheese Preference and Loot===
 +
[[White Cheddar Cheese]] will only attract [[Dwarf]], [[Frozen]] and [[Granite]] mice.<br/>
 +
{{SB}} will add the [[Black Widow]], [[Fog]], [[Frosty Snow]], [[Pebble]] and [[Silvertail]] to the mouse population in the [[Mountain]].<br/>
 +
[[Chedd-Ore Cheese]] will attract the [[Craggy Ore]],[[Mountain Mouse]] and [[Slope Swimmer]] mice.<br/>
 +
[[Abominable Asiago]] will attract the [[Abominable Snow Mouse]].<br/>
 +
[[Prospector's Charm]]s increase the attraction rate of [[Gold Mouse|Gold]], [[Diamond Mouse|Diamond]], and (with {{SB}} armed) [[Silvertail]] mice.

===Mice with Special Requirements===
 +
*[[Relic Hunter Mouse]] – This mouse visits the [[Mountain]] on an irregular basis. It does not consume cheese or charms. Hunters must have an [[Ancient Relic]] in their inventory to attract this mouse. The [[Ancient Relic]] will be taken by the [[Relic Hunter Mouse]] in exchange for a [[Relic Hunter Scroll Case]].
 +
*[[M400]] – This mouse will sometimes be available in the [[Mountain]] when Hunters are actively working an [[M400 Hunting Research Assignment]]. It is attracted only to [[Fusion Fondue]] which will not attract any other mice. It drops a wide variety of loot.
 +
 
 +
== Hunting Strategy ==
 +
All mice in the [[Mountain]] are weak to all [[Power Type]]s '''except''' the [[Ninja Mouse]], which has a weakness only to [[Tactical]], and [[Physical]] weapons.<br/>
 +
Hunters who reach the [[Rank]] of [[Master]] will be able to travel to the [[Great Gnarled Tree]], [[Laboratory]], [[Mousoleum]], and [[Town of Digby]], provided they have the appropriate [[Maps and Keys]].<br/>
 +
Hunters will need to complete the [[Find the Hidden Mountain Pass]] adventure to be able to travel to the [[Laboratory]] and [[Toxic Spill]] locations. The [[Toxic Spill]] location also require Hunters to be ranked [[Hero]] or higher..
 +
 
 +
===[[Adventure Book]]===
 +
Hunters will need to complete the [[Find the Hidden Mountain Pass]] adventure to find a [[Laboratory Map Piece]].
 +
 
 +
===[[Library Assignments]]===
 +
*[[M400 Bait Research Assignment]] - This assignment may require Hunters to track down specific items from [[Mountain]] mice in order to complete it.
 +
*[[M400 Hunting Research Assignment]] - This assignment may require capturing the [[M400]] in the [[Mountain]].
 +
 
 +
===[[Tournaments]]===
 +
[[Mountain]] mice are worth points during some [[Tournaments]].
 +
 
 +
===[[Treasure Map]]s===
 +
Many mice in the [[Mountain]] are often found on [[Gnawnia Treasure Map]]s and [[Relic Hunter Treasure Maps]].
 +
 
 +
=== Hunting tips by [[Larry]] ===
 +
Welcome, Mousehunter! You're about to discover the stunning vistas and treacherous terrain of the glorious Gnawnian Mountain! Home to Moustachio the Charmer, he has come up with these clever trinkets called '''charms''' that you can use to bolster your trap in many different ways. Don't forget to visit the Charm Shoppe to pick up your very own Charm Conduit to be able to use these new charms.
 +
 
 +
The Gold and Diamond mice found here are worth a handsome amount of gold and points. Extra income means that you may now be able to afford more expensive cheeses and more powerful traps. Don’t be afraid to upgrade your trap at the Trapsmith or purchase some more expensive cheese if you have problems attracting or catching mice. You’ve earned it!
 +
 
 +

Region: Gnawnia
Minimum Rank: Journeyman
Travel Requirement: None
Number of Mice: 21
Shops: Charm Shoppe
Cheese Shoppe
General Store
Lose Gold: Yes
Lose Points: Yes

Release Date: 10 April 2008
This treacherous environment only allows the toughest of mice to survive. Be warned: the Mountain is no place for the novice mouse hunter!

Overview

The Mountain is a location in the Gnawnia region requiring a minimum rank of Journeyman/Journeywoman to enter.
Mice in the Mountain may steal points, gold, or cheese.
Hunters accessing the Mountain for the first time will only have access to Physical weapons, but the mice here have a weakness to all Power Types, except the Ninja Mouse which has a weakness only to Tactical and Physical weapons.

Introduction to Charms

Purchase a Charm Conduit from the Mountain Charm Shoppe. The Mountain contains the only Charm Shoppe where Hunters can purchase the Charm Conduit, which allows the arming of Charms.

Smashing boulders and Crafting cheese

Hunters will arm charms to smash boulders to obtain Chedd-Ore Cheese which when armed, attracts mice which drop ingredients for Abominable Asiago.

HUD (Heads Up Display)

If the Hunter does not own a Charm Conduit yet, the following text is displayed:

I say, HUZZAH, fellow hunter!
I'm the foremost Gnawnian scholar in pioneering hunting technology! By merging a Charm Conduit into your trap, you'll be able to arm a new kind of item called charms!
Charms let you boost your trap's power, luck, and do all sorts of things! You'll find new charms throughout Gnawnia, and your conduit will work everywhere.

Once the Hunter purchases the Charm Conduit from the Charm Shoppe, the HUD reflects the HP of boulders. All boulders have 1,000 HP. The current Charm armed is also displayed, with the amount of damage said Charm deals. Damage dealt is equivalent to the Power of the armed Charm

The HUD tracks the following items:

Hunters can directly arm or craft with any of the items tracked by the HUD.

Breaking Boulders

After purchasing a Charm Conduit from the Mountain Charm Shoppe for 3,000 gold, hunters can start to arm charms and break boulders. Hunting with Standard Cheeses in the Mountain will attract mice that drop Small Power Charms. Additionally, Charm Shoppes, King's Cart, Marketplace, Gifts or Events all over the kingdom can yield charms. All Charms can be armed after purchasing the Charm Conduit.

The main goal is to deal 1,000 damage to a boulder, which will yield a varying amount of Chedd-Ore Cheese. Damage dealt is determined by the Power stat of the Charm armed. Don't hesitate to use higher tiered Charms should you have access to them for quicker progress. Arming a Charm with 1,000 or more power will instantly break the boulder, rewarding Chedd-Ore Cheese in a single hunt.

Crafting Abominable Asiago

After Breaking boulders, arm the looted Chedd-Ore Cheese to attract Slope Swimmer Mice, Craggy Ore Mice and Mountain Mice. These 3 mice drop Faceted Sugar and Iced Curds which are used to craft Abominable Asiago to attract the Abominable Snow Mouse

All mice in the Mountain, except the Ninja Mouse, are from the Indigenous Mice group and are weak to all Power Types.

Hunting tips by Larry

Welcome, Mousehunter! You're about to discover the stunning vistas and treacherous terrain of the glorious Gnawnian Mountain! Home to Moustachio the Charmer, he has come up with these clever trinkets called charms that you can use to bolster your trap in many different ways. Don't forget to visit the Charm Shoppe to pick up your very own Charm Conduit to be able to use these new charms.

The Gold and Diamond mice found here are worth a handsome amount of gold and points. Extra income means that you may now be able to afford more expensive cheeses and more powerful traps. Don’t be afraid to upgrade your trap at the Trapsmith or purchase some more expensive cheese if you have problems attracting or catching mice. You’ve earned it!

Now, be careful while exploring the Mountain. Upon these rocky precipices lies excitement, danger and big boulders full of tasty Chedd-Ore Cheese deposits just waiting to be mined. Hunt mice in the area to gather up various types of Power Charms. Once equipped, the power released from the charms will vibrate the rock face and cause the boulders to crumble and shatter, revealing Chedd-Ore Cheese! Using this cheese will attract the harder-to-find mice which live within the Mountain itself. Capturing them will drop crafting items that can be used to lure out the large, mysterious Abominable Snow Mouse who lives high up on the Mountain! If you can find a way to capture him, he could lead you to the next prosperous area!
