Bizarre murders are happening all over, each strangely involving body mutilation, organ theft and possibly ritual sacrifice. The Hunt Private Investigation Agency is brought in to identify the culprit and bring him to justice. The only problem is: everyone who's been involved in any of the cases has mysteriously disappeared or suffered a weird accident.. such that the only ones left to conduct the investigation are the interns. Are other forces at work here? What do the interns need to do to effectively get into the mind of the killer?
The Hunters are given dossiers of the various unsolved cases that involve these bizarre barbaric crimes. Noting the use of ritual magic in these murders, the Hunters themselves take it upon themselves to learn magic as a means to come to some manner of conclusion. With this skill, they will succeed where others have failed.

On October 23, 2004, Hunters assembled in the Cambridgeside Galleria Foodcourt for gh4. The Challenge system was such a success in the last hunt that it was brought back this time in the form of magical spells. By performing certain 'rites' or 'rituals', hunters were awarded elemental stones with which they can 'cast spells'. This was the first hunt to feature benefits gained from completing Challenges that could be used against others (ie, cursing other teams or forcing them to submit an answer on the spot).
If not for the need to do 'paperwork', this would have marked the first hunt to ever be completed in its entirety.
At the 11th hour (no, not literally), two teams had members leave early due to schedule conflicts and one superteam was formed from their remaining members. It was this team that eventually won.
