|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Hoy there, <name>! We're about to send in the next group of raiders into Farmer Maggot's fields. Be careful, though...our activities this year have Grip, Fang, and Wolf in a regular frenzy. You will need to get those mushrooms quickly before they catch your scent.
'Oh, but watch what you eat...several of our participants have reported some pretty strange effects from some of the rarer varieties of mushroom this year.'
The young hobbits of the Shire have long held a tradition of sneaking into Farmer Maggot's fields to make off with the succulent mushrooms that grow in the shade of the grain rows. Farmer Maggot does not take kindly to these trespassers, and each year around the harvest season, he unleashes his three dogs, Fang, Grip, and Wolf, into the fields to chase off any ne'er-do-well hobbits. This year a small group of enterprising hobbits has organized these raids into an unofficial 'event' of the Farmers Faire, forming groups to try to make off with the wild mushrooms.
NOTE: This quest will be removed from your quest log when the event it is associated with ends.
'You should head into the field shortly. We will be trying to find some of those delicious mushrooms growing out there...but be careful: once Farmer Maggot notices us out in the field, he will surely sic those dogs of his on us. You need to stay away from them!
'Come back here once you've eaten your fill of mushrooms.'
Gather at least eight mushrooms.
You have succeeded in devouring eight of Maggot's mushrooms...eat as many more as you can before the game is over!
