==Overview==
 +
The [[Windmill]] is a location in the [[Gnawnia]] region requiring a minimum rank of [[Apprentice]] to enter.<br/>
 +
Mice in the [[Windmill]] cannot steal gold, points, or extra cheese.<br/>
 +
Hunters accessing the [[Windmill]] for the first time will only have access to [[Physical]] weapons, but the mice here have a weakness to all [[Power Type]]s.
 +
 
 +
===Repairing the Windmill===
 +
When Hunters first enter the [[Windmill]] it is not operating properly.  The Heads-Up Display (HUD) shows a '''speed gauge''' which initially reads '''0 RPM'''.  As Hunters catch mice, the power of the [[Windmill]] increases.  Mice will drop [[Packets of Flour]] which can be used to purchase [[Grilled Cheese]] in the [[Windmill Cheese Shoppe]].  Arming [[Grilled Cheese]] allows Hunters to attract and catch the [[Captain Croissant Mouse]], which boosts the [[Windmill]] to its top speed of '''30 RPM'''. Once the top speed is reached, the [[Windmill]] is fully repaired and will not lose speed over time.
  
== Description and Requirements ==
+
The HUD shows the following items:
The '''Windmill''' is a location in the [[Gnawnia]] region requiring a minimum rank of [[Hunter's Title|Apprentice]] to enter. Mice are unable to steal a hunters' supplies while in this location.
+
*The current speed of the [[Windmill]] and the status of the repair effort.
 +
:*When repairs are complete, the HUD shows this message:
 +
::'''The Windmill has been repaired and will remain at top speed!'''
 +
*The number of [[Packets of Flour]] in a Hunter's inventory.
 +
:*A button for buying [[Grilled Cheese]].
 +
::'''Packet of Flour'''
 +
::'''Hunt mice to loot this item, then trade it in batches of 12 to buy [[Grilled Cheese]].'''
 +
*The number of [[Grilled Cheese]] in a Hunter's inventory.
 +
:*A button for arming [[Grilled Cheese]].
 +
::'''Grilled Cheese'''
 +
::'''Arm this gooey delight to lure out the elusive [[Captain Croissant Mouse]]!'''
 +
*A portrait of [[Captain Croissant]] that, once caught, will show a green checkmark.
  
== Shops ==
+
While arming [[Grilled Cheese]] to catch the [[Captain Croissant Mouse]] is completely optional, doing so will complete [[Repair the Windmill]] from the [[Adventure Book]].
There are no shops available in the Windmill. The nearest available shops in the region are in the [[Meadow]], [[Town of Gnawnia]] and [[Harbour]].  
+
 
 +
==Mice==
 +
All mice in this area are from the [[Indigenous Mice]] group and are weak to all [[Power Type]]s.
  
== Windmill Mice ==
+
===Cheese Preference and Loot===
 +
[[Brie Cheese|Brie]] is required for attracting the [[Speedy]] mouse.<br>
 +
[[White Cheddar Cheese]] works similarly to [[Cheddar Cheese]] with the exception of [[Brown]], [[Grey]] and [[White]] mice.<br>
 +
{{SB}} is required for attracting the [[Farmhand]], [[Silvertail]] and [[Tiny]] mice.<br>
 +
[[Grilled Cheese]] is required for attracting the [[Captain Croissant Mouse]] and will attract '''only''' it.<br>
 +
The '''Brie''' column includes '''Brie Cheese''' and [[Empowered Brie Cheese]].<br>
 +
The '''SUPER|brie+''' column includes '''SUPER|brie+''' and {{Toxic SB}}.

• Catch mice in the Windmill<br>

Once you have captured [[Captain Croissant]] the Windmill will be restored to its fully operational status, making loot drops of flour much easier to find!
  
The Windmill is full of mice who enjoy the simple life, harvesting vegetables, eating vegetables, scheming to get tastier vegetables... but if some city slicker were to come along with a stash of cheese, they might just brave your new-fangled trap to get a piece. [[Spud]] mice, in particular, are always looking for more lunch, despite the fact that they eat whole potatoes for breakfast.

So set your trap, MouseHunter, and discover all the wacky and wonderful mouse breeds at the Windmill! Fight hard, and trap often, and you'll be an [[Initiate]] in no time!

Windmill
Region: Gnawnia
Minimum Rank: Apprentice
Travel Requirement: None
Number of Mice: 18
Shops: Cheese Shoppe
Lose Gold: No
Lose Points: No
Lose Cheese: No
Release Date: 30 June 2010
This windmill, and the farm beside it, used to belong to one of Gnawnia's most prosperous farmers before the mice took it over. Windmill mice enjoy the simple life down on the farm, but don't be fooled by their relaxed attitude-- they're laid-back about everything but cheese.

Overview

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

Repairing the Windmill

When Hunters first enter the Windmill it is not operating properly. The Heads-Up Display (HUD) shows a speed gauge which initially reads 0 RPM. As Hunters catch mice, the power of the Windmill increases. Mice will drop Packets of Flour which can be used to purchase Grilled Cheese in the Windmill Cheese Shoppe. Arming Grilled Cheese allows Hunters to attract and catch the Captain Croissant Mouse, which boosts the Windmill to its top speed of 30 RPM. Once the top speed is reached, the Windmill is fully repaired and will not lose speed over time.

The HUD shows the following items:

  • The current speed of the Windmill and the status of the repair effort.
  • When repairs are complete, the HUD shows this message:
The Windmill has been repaired and will remain at top speed!
Packet of Flour
Hunt mice to loot this item, then trade it in batches of 12 to buy Grilled Cheese.
Grilled Cheese
Arm this gooey delight to lure out the elusive Captain Croissant Mouse!

While arming Grilled Cheese to catch the Captain Croissant Mouse is completely optional, doing so will complete Repair the Windmill from the Adventure Book.

Mice

All mice in this area are from the Indigenous Mice group and are weak to all Power Types.

Cheese Preference and Loot

Brie is required for attracting the Speedy mouse.
White Cheddar Cheese works similarly to Cheddar Cheese with the exception of Brown, Grey and White mice.
SUPER|brie+ is required for attracting the Farmhand, Silvertail and Tiny mice.
Grilled Cheese is required for attracting the Captain Croissant Mouse and will attract only it.
The Brie column includes Brie Cheese and Empowered Brie Cheese.
The SUPER|brie+ column includes SUPER|brie+ and Empowered SUPER|brie+.

Hunting Tips by Larry

Congratulations, MouseHunter! You've reached the Windmill, a rustic locale where Apprentice MouseHunters go to prove their worth. A group of rowdy country mice overran this farm a while back, and ever since, they've been throwing a hoedown with the farmer's crops!

Recently, a gigantic bread-like mouse has taken up residence inside of the Windmill. This has caused production problems that only a MouseHunter can solve!

• Catch mice in the Windmill
• Every catch helps the Windmill operate more efficiently
• The more you catch, the more the Windmill can produce!
• Collect Packets of Flour and create Grilled Cheese
• Capture the Captain Croissant Mouse!

Once you have captured Captain Croissant the Windmill will be restored to its fully operational status, making loot drops of flour much easier to find!

So set your trap, MouseHunter, and discover all the wacky and wonderful mouse breeds at the Windmill! Fight hard, and trap often, and you'll be an Initiate in no time!
