The Town of Gnawnia is a location in the Gnawnia region requiring a minimum rank of Recruit to enter.
Mice in the Town of Gnawnia cannot steal gold, points, or extra cheese.
Hunters accessing the Town of Gnawnia for the first time will only have access to Physical weapons, but the mice here have a weakness to all Power Types.


The Heads-Up Display in the Town of Gnawnia tracks the bounties available to Hunters. Hunters can collect bounties on six mice.

Collecting bounties is completely optional, but doing so allows Hunters to also complete the Secure the Town of Gnawnia adventure in the Adventure Book.

When first entering the Town of Gnawnia, the HUD will show a mouse silhouette and Bounties Available!. It also shows Likes: and Loves: for the cheese preference, but without any cheese specified.

To the right on the HUD it reads:

Town of Gnawnia Most Wanted
Reveal Mouse
Catch Wanted Mice for the Bounty Reward!

Collecting Bounties

Selecting Reveal Mouse through the HUD will change the mouse silhouette to an image of the wanted mouse, Bounties Available! will be replaced with the mouse name and the Likes: and Loves: sections will contain the mouse's preferred cheeses.

To the right on the HUD it reads:

Town of Gnawnia Most Wanted
[Reward Amount] and Claim Reward
The Claim Reward button will be highlighted once the mouse has been captured.
Capture this mouse to earn a Bounty Reward!
Claim your Bounty Reward!

CAUGHT! will be displayed over the mouse image and the mouse name will be struck through once the target mouse has been captured.

Claiming the reward resets the HUD to the state seen when first entering the Town of Gnawnia, unless all bounties have been claimed.

A pop-up also appears when claiming a bounty.

You've earned a Bounty Reward!
[Reward Amount]
Great job catching the rascal!
Keep on hunting like that, and you'll have this town cleaned up in no time!
