My scenario is that I have reached the point in the goal where I should be spawning the Gnome Chef, and I am, however I click 8 to 9 farmhouses and more often get monsters
I also haven't spawned a Troll Chef (the other special monster) from field yet, as I haven't reached that part.
I could be wrong, but it seems like it may be working as intended?
Personally i'd save my energy (or at least not spend it trying to spawn monsters before they're called for) until we have confirmation! ❤️
