Hunting Strategy

Hunting tips by Larry

Ah, Queso Geyser! The heart of the whole queso operation. A natural fount of delicious, molten queso that bubbles and gurgles its way from the unknown depths of Gnawnia's core to the surface. The most prevalent geologists have determined this to be biggest and most active geyser currently known within the entire Kingdom!

Its constant activity causes it to be a source of extreme heat as well as delicious cheese. Due to this, the strongest family of mice have taken roost here. Very powerful dragons have now made this their home, hoarding valuables and basking in the molten queso showers.

These Draconic mice are attracted to the natural eruptions that periodically occur and will roost nearby until one happens. Luckily, those clever geologists have found that you can create an all-natural barrier using cork and other materials found nearby to plug up the geyser and cause artificial eruptions allowing one to purposefully attract the geyser-dwelling dragons!

You will need to hunt the more timid mice in the area that come out when the geyser is least active. Catching them will award you with valuable Cork Bark that you can use to craft a cork and plug up the geyser, starting a build-up of pressure.

Once corked, the geyser will start to rumble and build pressure, scaring away the timid mice and bringing about the ones who thrive in and around the newly created high-pressure environment. As these mice are caught, their explosive energy will be captured and cause the pressure contained inside the geyser to build until it inevitably explodes!

During the cheesy eruption, the most powerful dragons of the area come out to stake claim to the delicious queso and to all the shiny and valuable materials that shake lose. If you can capture any of these mice, they will drop some of their impressive loot into the Dragon Nest.

When the eruption calms and these dragons leave, you will be able to safely loot the nest and see what valuable treasures they have left behind!

Good luck hunters, may you strike it rich!
