+
Palringo is a third-party chat application that many guilds use to talk with their members. It is also used to bring all guilds together to help each other and support the community at large.
'''''New Officers of the Blood Council:'''''
 
* '''Artemys''' - Blood Moon Huntress
 
* '''God Of Tasty''' - Gastronomer of the Moon
 
* '''Kure''' - Blood Moon Vulpini
 
 
These gods and goddess have been in [[Harvest Moon]] for quite some time. Each has proven themselves, on numerous occasions, to be a member not only willing, but very capable of looking out for the interests of this guild and their fellow guild mates. Being overall great people helped a bit as well. There is no doubt in our minds that these young officers will contribute immensely to the wicked plans that have been awaiting new blood. Check out our guild forum for more information about these three, phenomenal Harvest Moon members.
 
  
In addition to the new officers, we would like to acknowledge four other members whose reputation throughout Godville brings honor to our guild. By their character in our guild council, compassion toward other guild members, and their overall diligence in supporting our malevolent way of life, we have chosen to award them with honorary titles, and thereby distinguish them above their peers!
+
'''Why Palringo?'''
 +
Palringo is easy to set up and get started and is available on all platforms (iOS/Droid/PC). There are a bunch of groups dedicated to certain tasks inside Godville: HM’s Pet Cemetery (for help reviving your pet), HM Gold Diggers (for help finding a match when digging for boss monsters), and Godville’s C.A.F.E (to help people working towards their Coaching achievement), just to name a few.
  
'''''Distinguished Members:'''''
+
'''How do I join Palringo?'''
* '''Shadow Luxio''' - Sominator Lune
+
Search the app store for Palringo if on an iOS. On Droid search the GooglePlay app. Go to Palringo.com for PC. If you’re unable to install the application, you can use Palringo.im.
* '''Ex Machina 3000''' - Blood Moon Midas
+
 
* '''JmfC''' - Wildcard of the Moon
+
You’re all signed up! What’s next? Before you join any groups, most of the members use their godname (not their real name) as their nickname on Palringo; this helps us find each other “in game.” The first group you’ll want to join is: godville (the password is: kitkat). This is a group open to all of Godville’s gods and goddesses, so come on in and say hi!
* '''Proxes''' - Sleeper of the Moon

If you're like me, you've gotten to know quite a few goody goodies through our alliance with certain benevolent guilds, which brings the quandary of what gifts to give over the holidays. I know from experience that kitten sammiches are not appreciated. Puppies are in danger of being coddled and kept as pets instead of being kicked in half as they were meant to be. Spa memberships don't work out, since most are afraid of our evil gnomes and don't fully appreciate the value of a good blood bath or concrete body wrap. And giving them gifts they profess to like (rainbow unicorns, teddy bears, halo brighteners, anything pink) requires actual contact with such items. Shudder.
+
Today, I'm in the Harvest Moon kitchen to whip everyone's favorite - holiday fruitcake! In a medium sized cauldron, add:
 +
* 12 cups flour - the weevils add extra protein!
 +
* 4 eggs - this is where being a guild leader with your own feathered boa constrictor comes in handy. The hard part is getting the eggs away from her.
 +
* 1 teaspoon baking powder - of course, our kitchen has none of this, but I've found gunpowder works quite nicely once the oven gets hot enough to ignite it.
 +
* 2 cups nuts - and there are plenty of those around the guild hall (not naming names)
 +
* 2 cups chewy bits - I just scrape up what's left of the puppies we've kicked in half.
 +
* 3 cups sugar - sweet stuff at Harvest Moon? Not happening. But but it doesn't matter. No one eats fruitcake anyway.
  
So what would make an appropriate gift, without possibly tainting the giver? After long thought and many failed experiments, I've concluded that the best gift to give is absolutely nothing! After all, what's more evil than that?
+
Mix well and bake at 450 degrees for 60 minutes. You'll need some help getting it out of the oven, as it will weigh about 50 pounds. They make wonderful doorstops, weapons, or I have some here that I've carved into cute little Santa dogs. And now, to the pup-a-pult! Enjoy!
  
Next week: Baking with Bella!

Next week: Send in your suggestions!

Dearest Sleepy Skirmisher,

Dearest Down-and-out in Godville-y Hills,
  
I hate to tell you this, but... Your hero will very likely skirmish when you aren’t paying attention or even awake. To avoid this: arena! Didn’t you read [http://wiki.godvillegame.com/index.php?title=Talk:Harvest_Moon&oldid=34550 last week’s article]? No? Well, do it! Or... you could have your hero commit suicide every night before you go to bed (“You know it ain’t no lie, baby: die, die, die!” is one of ''my'' favorite VCs for this) and resurrect him again in the morning when you can pay more attention. Hooray for the Martyr Achievement! Of course, he’ll still lose all his gold... and artifacts... and damage his equipment a little... and it’s basically a really bad idea outside of emergencies. Does the arena make you nervous? Don’t be afraid to ask for help! We won’t laugh at you... much... at least not while while you’re paying attention.
+
So, you’re not in [[Harvest Moon]], eh? Hmmm... Whatever you do, DO NOT waste your God Power trying a few “Return to town!” voice commands ''before'' Punishing or (icky!) Encouraging the heck out of your hero when you have enough gold to melt a brick. Hit those buttons out in the field! Who needs a town for that? Really. It won’t make any difference. I promise. If you ''do'' find yourself in town, absolutely DO NOT wait until ''after'' selling to melt, either. I swear, it isn’t cheaper that way. Really! And, no matter what you do, DO NOT show this paper to your guild mates as I’m sure they’ll think this evil God is trying to mislead you. Which I’m not. Really. Why would I do that? Best of luck to you and your guild!  
  
 
Yours,

Palringo: The What, Why and How

It’s only this weird some of the time. Really.
What is Palringo?

Palringo is a third-party chat application that many guilds use to talk with their members. It is also used to bring all guilds together to help each other and support the community at large.

Why Palringo? Palringo is easy to set up and get started and is available on all platforms (iOS/Droid/PC). There are a bunch of groups dedicated to certain tasks inside Godville: HM’s Pet Cemetery (for help reviving your pet), HM Gold Diggers (for help finding a match when digging for boss monsters), and Godville’s C.A.F.E (to help people working towards their Coaching achievement), just to name a few.

How do I join Palringo? Search the app store for Palringo if on an iOS. On Droid search the GooglePlay app. Go to Palringo.com for PC. If you’re unable to install the application, you can use Palringo.im.

You’re all signed up! What’s next? Before you join any groups, most of the members use their godname (not their real name) as their nickname on Palringo; this helps us find each other “in game.” The first group you’ll want to join is: godville (the password is: kitkat). This is a group open to all of Godville’s gods and goddesses, so come on in and say hi!

At Home with Bella Stewart

Queen of evil
Advice from the Mavin of the Macabre, the Mistress of Mystery, our very own Empress: Bellatrixie The Strange!

Today, I'm in the Harvest Moon kitchen to whip everyone's favorite - holiday fruitcake! In a medium sized cauldron, add:

  • 12 cups flour - the weevils add extra protein!
  • 4 eggs - this is where being a guild leader with your own feathered boa constrictor comes in handy. The hard part is getting the eggs away from her.
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder - of course, our kitchen has none of this, but I've found gunpowder works quite nicely once the oven gets hot enough to ignite it.
  • 2 cups nuts - and there are plenty of those around the guild hall (not naming names)
  • 2 cups chewy bits - I just scrape up what's left of the puppies we've kicked in half.
  • 3 cups sugar - sweet stuff at Harvest Moon? Not happening. But but it doesn't matter. No one eats fruitcake anyway.

Mix well and bake at 450 degrees for 60 minutes. You'll need some help getting it out of the oven, as it will weigh about 50 pounds. They make wonderful doorstops, weapons, or I have some here that I've carved into cute little Santa dogs. And now, to the pup-a-pult! Enjoy!

Next week: Send in your suggestions!

Down in the dumps about your home or temple's decor? Send GodBellatrixie the Strange  (aka Bella Stewart) your questions directly or submit them to any member of the newspaper staff.

Get To Know a Deity

Her heroine is older than Godville!
Here we sit down weekly with a Harvest Moon warrior and find out what makes them tick. This week’s Deity is none other than the infamous: GodSauriva 
  • Q: What is your favorite salty snack?
  • A: As an evil goddess, I prefer crumbles of dreams doused with childrens’ tears, but any salted almond is good, too.
  • Q: What are your hero's marketable skills?
  • A: Her “tooth sampling” skill turned out to be not very efficient so she got “pocket hypnotoad.” It's good! She pulls it out of her pocket with it's eyes on the merchant and not herself occasionally.
  • Q: What color underwear are you wearing?
  • A: Under... what? What's that? I use overwear. And it's transparent!
  • Q: Do you get emotional using Encourage when in times of crisis?
  • A: I did that once. And then I had to buy a new laptop.
  • Q: How do you like to spend your spare time?
  • A: Drinking tea and plotting on taking over the whole world.

If you have a burning question for Harvest Moon's Deities, please submit them to the staff. Thank you!

Harvest Moon Merchandise

New designs will be added to the Cafe Press Harvest Moon Store soon! There’s still time to order before the holidays.

Doctor Frank's Advice Corner

An evil queen
Dear Dr. Frank,

First off, please don’t tell my guild I’m writing you. Surely nobody else would read a Harvest Moon publication, right? My issue: my guild is doing well, but they could be doing better. We have quite a few members, but not all of us can afford to spam miracles and influences in every town we come to. How can a non-paying, templeless god make a difference?

Signed, Can we make a Pauperlarity Pantheon?

Dearest Down-and-out in Godville-y Hills,

So, you’re not in Harvest Moon, eh? Hmmm... Whatever you do, DO NOT waste your God Power trying a few “Return to town!” voice commands before Punishing or (icky!) Encouraging the heck out of your hero when you have enough gold to melt a brick. Hit those buttons out in the field! Who needs a town for that? Really. It won’t make any difference. I promise. If you do find yourself in town, absolutely DO NOT wait until after selling to melt, either. I swear, it isn’t cheaper that way. Really! And, no matter what you do, DO NOT show this paper to your guild mates as I’m sure they’ll think this evil God is trying to mislead you. Which I’m not. Really. Why would I do that? Best of luck to you and your guild!

Yours,

Dr. Frank
