There are many harmless jokes posted on the Discussion Boards by bored and mischevious players. However, if the Creators do make these rumors into reality, this post will be altered. Here are a list of current, common Myths:
- Purchasing a large amount of cheese to keep gold 'safe'
Having zero gold does not 'block' a hunter from a mouse stealing their gold. The mouse will instead steal a quantity of their cheese equal to the value of gold that the mouse would have taken. The quantity of cheese is also rounded up, meaning: if a mouse was to steal 201 gold and a hunter had brie baited the mouse would instead steal 2 pieces of brie which is the equivalent of 400 gold. It becomes obvious that this hurts the hunter more than it helps them.
