[theme] Farmer Maggot quest

#1 Post by horsefly »

I've just recently started playing the "theme" version of T.O.M.E. after reading about it here, and I'm enjoying it a lot. The trouble is, I'm so used to simply heading west of Bree (sometimes southwest) in stanard TOME to find Farmer Maggot's mushroom field and avoid his dogs to complete the quest, and in theme, I can't do that. I've played three different characters, and only one of those three has successfully found Farmer Maggot's mushroom field to complete the quest. It's getting really frustrating! Where is the mushroom field in theme? Please help.

As you have probably noticed, wandering around the wilderness in Theme is way more dangerous than in regular Tome. If you stay on the roads it is less so, but a beginning character will get ambushed and probably killed very quickly. On the other hand, there are many more useful places to go in the wilderness.

AFAIR, in Theme Maggot's field is one or two squares to the west of Bree. I never bother with it, though. I generally level up to 10 killing felines in the grasslands and then visit one of the swamps (not the one right below Bree) to get to into the 20s. This required some care, because either place can easily kill my character.

At level 20 you can safely walk through shallow water and across grass on the overhead may. There are still some dangerous places that you can ambushed- the Dead Marshes can kill even a level 50 character, I think.

I think I've searched the first two squares west of Bree (the character I'm currently playing is already 30th level, a Wood-Elf Archer, so ambushes aren't primarily my concern right now), but I'll re-check them again, thanks. At least the standard T.O.M.E. version gives the helpful hint, "You hear the sound of frenzied barking," when you're in the correct location...

Yottle, thanks for the tip. For the record--especially for anyone newer to Theme than myself, the mushroom field is two squares west of Bree, and two squares east of the Old Forest. Also, "You hear the sound of frenzied barking," *DOES* show up when you enter the correct square.

I hate leaving quests incomplete, so... *does the happy dance now*
