|Here is every thing you need to know about HM in three quick steps:|
- We are a strong, cohesive and fun community of players who like to chat and help each other.
- We have quite a few temple owners, who keep our stats high so that all our members receive a continual supply of gold and other rewards (when viewing our town influence level, remember that only the Godville Times doesn't always list all towns, but this sight does list our influence levels in all towns)
- We are an evil guild. Everyone is welcome to join, provided they have an evil alignment.
- Our members include many of the oldest and most powerful gods in Godville, who are happy to be asked questions and share wisdom with their guild mates. Ask us anything; arena combat, how best to guide an evil hero, temple building, you name it!
- Please friend several of our welcomers to discover how you can get the most out of your membership. Our welcomers are , , , , , and .
- If you wish to join our dark ranks, send a voice saying Join the "Harvest Moon" guild while your hero is outside a city until the hero decides to switch quests. 'Do not cancel your current quest first.'
- Should your hero be foolish enough to start questing to leave us, aside from punishing the insolent whelp, we suggest that you order them repeatedly to "cancel quest". This can sometimes take over 20 tries, so persistence is the key!
- Our guild has a lot going on behind the scenes. Integral to our functioning is an easy to use chat program called Palringo. To find out more details, including how to join Palringo, just click on the following link: [Harvest Moon Blog Post].
The Harvest Moon occurs once every 10 years, and when it does it is a time of great terror. In the old days, the Cult of Blood would attempt to harness the Moon's dark energy by the means of sacrifice. They would "harvest" the souls of their victims and offer them to the blood red moon in return for great and terrible power.
Over time members of the cult were hunted down and killed, as the rest fled over the ocean and inhabited the land of Godville. By this time they had forgotten the rituals they would use to carry out the Harvest Moon Sacrifice. Although their methods are lost, there are still the guild masters who tirelessly hunt for a way to harness the Moon's great power once more, and recruit other "heroes" to help them in their search for power...
We currently have major footholds all over this land. Those who defy our rule in our areas of influence are severely punished for their blasphemy. Our followers affix a magical, sacred seal on their doors which not only allow them to show their support, but also protect them when we purge an area of any resistance.
Our strongholds are easily recognizable. They are vast, strong fortresses of darkness, perpetually surrounded by black storm clouds. The fortress is surrounded by a lake of blood, and atop the impressive towers made of bone are great luminous red crystals - ancient storage devices through which we channel dark energy in return for great and terrible power.
We avoid each other by announcing when we're entering the arena, while others wait their turn if they are a close enough level to risk being matched with them. This is done by making announcements a special "Arena" chat room in Palringo. Look here to learn how to chat in Palringo and we'll get you set up in the arena rooms.
We realize that many players also announce they are entering arena via the Guild Council chat in Godville. We must warn that this is not a secure area in which to announce, since we have no control over who joins Harvest Moon (some of whom may be alternate accounts of other Godville users in different guilds). Therefore, we recommend posting on Guild Council only at your discretion, since you open yourself up to the potential of being stalked.
Despite all precautions taken, it is almost inevitable that Harvest Moon members will match in the arena from time to time. When this happens, we recommend that the matched guildmates try to communicate via Guild Council (or PM, if friends in Godville) to discuss terms of the fight (for example, a ""pure"" fight with no influence or god voices, a limit on charges, or a fight to the death). If neither party responds, or if there is a disagreement, then the default is to fight in true Harvest Moon fashion... that is, to win. No one is ever expected to throw a fight against a guild member.
Please note that announcing that you are entering arena is in no way mandatory, but done because most of us do not like beating up our fellow guildmates.
Many of our members enjoy friendly banter and roleplay on Our Forum, and find that posting adds another dimension to the Godville experience. Additionally, we believe that keeping a fun, active thread going helps with the recruitment of new members, as the Guild's Headquarters section of the forum is one of the first places people look when joining a guild. We welcome all members, regardless of length of time in the guild and/or roleplay experience to join in the fun. You don't know if you'll like it until you try it, so come on in, the water's fine! All we ask is that you remain courteous in accordance with the Godville Forum Rules.

These "Legends" have all been with the guild since the Harvest Moon first formed in Godville.

Our guild is proud to be home to over 700 members. Our members can be viewed at the Harvest Moon Stats Page. HM has 65 pet medals and 296 temple owners.
Temple and Pet Owners
Our members are encouraged to recruit new, evil aligned gods and heroes into the guild. However, experience has proven that a degree of restraint must be practiced in order to preserve a sense of honor and goodwill between the many guilds of Godville. Therefore, we now ask that our members do not make deliberate attempts to recruit members from an active guild. As a general guideline, a guild which has posted on their own thread within the last 2 weeks should be considered active. We ask that other guilds contact an officer or Blood Council member if they feel like this policy has been violated.
