With a dense population and a variety of environments, a hunter will be sure to find almost all varieties of mice when in town.

Description and Requirements

The Town of Gnawnia is a location in the Gnawnia region requiring a minimum rank of Recruit to enter. Mice are unable to steal a hunter's supplies while in the town.

Hunters can hunt for various mice and receive additional rewards for catching them on the HUD. There are 6 different bounties and they must be completed in order: Cowardly, Dwarf, Longtail, Pugilist, Flying, and Speedy respectively.


These are the shops that can be found in the Town of Gnawnia:

Hunting Strategy

It is generally considered a good idea to purchase cheese in bulk at the local Cheese Shoppe because it is cheaper than at all other locations. The hunter has several Trap Setup Options for the Town of Gnawnia. Some hunters might choose to hunt here rather than at the Meadow for the chance of meeting some rarer mice such as the Burglar, Nibbler, or Zombie. Hunters can also consider hunting for the Dwarf Mouse that carries Plankrun's Journal Entries on Gnawnia.

Some hunters have also been known to return from the Harbour and Mountain, looking for some respite from the thieving mice and dreaded 'red boxes'. Almost any trap will be effective here as most of the mice are Indigenous Mice and are quite weak.

Cheese Usage

All standard cheese types can be used in this location. It is recommended that Novices start out with either Cheddar or Marble, but stay away from Swiss or Brie due to the low power of their traps, and using either of the cheeses will very likely result in a net gold loss.

More experienced hunters might consider White Cheddar so as to keep the colored mice away from their traps. Hunters who prefer a better attraction rate can use either Marble, Swiss, or Brie. However, Brie is not recommended due to the fact that the colored mice run rampant in the town, thus lowering overall profits as catching a colored mouse with Brie results in a net gold loss.

Hunters can also consider using SUPER|brie+ in order to attract the Nibbler and Black Widow mice. Patience is needed, however, as they are seldom encountered even with the magical SUPER|brie+.

Hunting tips by Larry

Welcome to the Town of Gnawnia, home of His Majesty, the King!

Gnawnia has two shops. The first is the Cheese Shoppe where you can buy bait for your trap, and the second is the Trapsmith, where you can buy new trap parts.

When you reach the title of Apprentice, you may want to try hunting at the Windmill. Visit the Travel page to access your map and travel to other hunting grounds.
