From the mountains of Gnawnia to Zugzwang's famous Gardens, the Relic Hunter Mouse leaves no trap unturned in the search for elusive Ancient Relics. Sure, they can be found in the possession of some of the most dangerous mice around, but, well... That's dangerous! It's far safer (relatively) to try to check out the relics that hunters have accrued. And besides, free cheese!

This mouse is so dedicated to the study of Ancient Relics that she'll never approach your trap until you have at least one. The Relic Hunter Mouse will stay in one location for an entire day before moving on, so you'll have to search Gnawnia to find her every day!

Mouse ID#: 401

Attracting the Relic Hunter Mouse

Each hunt in the current location of the Relic Hunter Mouse, both through sounding the Hunter's Horn and the hourly trap check, has the potential to attract the Relic Hunter Mouse in addition to whatever mouse is attracted by the Hunter's Cheese or not.
The outcome of the main hunt (catch or failure to catch or failure to attract) has no impact on the outcome of the bonus hunt.
Encountering a Relic Hunter Mouse will not affect progress in any area when encountered.

The attraction of the Relic Hunter Mouse is not affected by Cheese or Charms.
A successful catch of the Relic Hunter Mouse will occur as a bonus hunt that does not consume either Cheese or Charms.

Ancient Relics and Relic Hunter Scroll Cases

Hunters must have at least one Ancient Relic in their inventory for the Relic Hunter Mouse to be attracted.
Catching a Relic Hunter Mouse will cause an Ancient Relic to be removed from the Hunter's inventory and a Relic Hunter Scroll Case to drop as loot.
If a Hunter has 20 or more Relic Hunter Scroll Cases in their inventory, the Relic Hunter Mouse will no longer drop one as loot and will not remove an Ancient Relic from the Hunter's inventory.
The cap on scroll cases allows hunters to pursue the Relic Hunter without consuming Ancient Relics.

Journal Entries

I can go to my Special inventory to open it.
Make sure to tell your friends to check [Location] during the next [hours, minutes, seconds] to catch one!

I caught an elusive Relic Hunter Mouse in the [Location]!
I already have the maximum allowed Relic Hunter Scroll Cases, so the mouse left my supply of Ancient Relics alone and scampered off.
Luckily she was not interested in my cheese or charms!
I should tell my friends to check the [Location] during the next [hours, minutes, seconds] to catch one!

A Failure to Catch of a Relic Hunter Mouse results in the following message in the Hunter's Journal:
