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.
+
The [[pantheon of unity]] is scored two ways, the first and most important is guild rank. The longer you're in a guild the more points your rank is worth. The second part is based on which actions are used: a “dark” guild will be mostly using Punish, a “bright” guild will be mostly using Encourage, and a “neutral” guild has members using a mixture of the two or a relatively equal number using one or the other.
  
'''Why Palringo?'''
+
If you wish to help your guild's unity ranking, follow that alignment of the guild. For example [[Harvest Moon]] is "dark," so Punish to beat monsters and/or melt bricks and use voice commands to heal if you need health. [[Blue Feather]] is "bright," so they should Encourage to heal and melt and use voice commands to strike monsters.  
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!

Today, I'm in the Harvest Moon kitchen to whip everyone's favorite - holiday fruitcake! In a medium sized cauldron, add:
+
As we all should know, the end of the world is coming December 21! In that spirit, this week I'm offering some suggestions for bizarre behavior that evil gods and goddesses may wish to try just once before the lights go out forever. Just make sure you're alone where no one else can possibly catch you at it.
* 12 cups flour - the weevils add extra protein!
+
* Pink! Wear it, decorate with it, immerse yourself in it!
* 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.
+
* Pet and snuggle that puppy before you kick it in half.
* 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.
+
* Imbibe that strange concoction called a "soft drink". If you're really adventurous, try a Shirley Temple.
* 2 cups nuts - and there are plenty of those around the guild hall (not naming names)
+
* Swap those horns for a halo. (WARNING: May cause severe headache and blurred vision)
* 2 cups chewy bits - I just scrape up what's left of the puppies we've kicked in half.
+
* Eschew those kitten sammiches and go vegetarian.
* 3 cups sugar - sweet stuff at Harvest Moon? Not happening. But but it doesn't matter. No one eats fruitcake anyway.
+
* Let your opponent win in the arena. (Bonus: This will confuse and befuddle the rest of Godville)
 +
* Befriend a monster and give HIM gold and an artifact.
 +
* Let the newbies go ahead of you in line at the physician's.
 +
* Bury yourself and let a mole dig you up.
 +
* Use the Encourage button. (WARNING: Not for the faint of heart)
  
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!
+
See you all at Harvest Moon's End of The World party! It's been great knowing you!
  
Next week: Send in your suggestions!

''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?''
+
''I’m currently in a temple race against a very formidable opponent. I’m ahead at the moment, but I know she can catch up at any time (because she’s'' '''really''' ''good at this.) How can I get bricks faster? I want to win! Scratch that, I'' '''will''' ''win! ...But any advice is much appreciated.''
 +
 
 +
''Signed, Why won’t she just give up?''
  
''Signed, Can we make a Pauperlarity Pantheon?''
+
Dearest “All I want for Christmas is my last two bricks,
  
Dearest Down-and-out in Godville-y Hills,
+
I’m sure whoever you’re currently-but-not-for-long outpacing is using the tried-and-true methods of blowing lots charges digging, fighting boss monsters, sending to arena (and winning) on a regular basis, and spamming influences while at the trader. Did you know it’s possible to make good progress without paying? Take your time! Really, what’s the rush? Building your temple is the largest of the readily-achievable goals in the game and once that’s done you’ve got... what? The [[pantheon of savings]]? Yay. Retirement. (Note: Sarcasm)
  
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!
+
Why not give your ridiculously witty, charming and good looking rival (and your wallet) a break? Make sure you've set alerts to go off when your hero collects 3000 gold coins (melt!), arena every time you manage to have three charges and 100% god power, and dig after arena if you have the god power to do so. You really should take it easy. I’m sure your challenger won’t catch you.
  
Yours,
+
Very sincerely,
  
 
Dr. Frank

How Does Guild Unity Work?

All for one and one for all! Live eviL!

The pantheon of unity is scored two ways, the first and most important is guild rank. The longer you're in a guild the more points your rank is worth. The second part is based on which actions are used: a “dark” guild will be mostly using Punish, a “bright” guild will be mostly using Encourage, and a “neutral” guild has members using a mixture of the two or a relatively equal number using one or the other.

If you wish to help your guild's unity ranking, follow that alignment of the guild. For example Harvest Moon is "dark," so Punish to beat monsters and/or melt bricks and use voice commands to heal if you need health. Blue Feather is "bright," so they should Encourage to heal and melt and use voice commands to strike monsters.

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!

As we all should know, the end of the world is coming December 21! In that spirit, this week I'm offering some suggestions for bizarre behavior that evil gods and goddesses may wish to try just once before the lights go out forever. Just make sure you're alone where no one else can possibly catch you at it.

  • Pink! Wear it, decorate with it, immerse yourself in it!
  • Pet and snuggle that puppy before you kick it in half.
  • Imbibe that strange concoction called a "soft drink". If you're really adventurous, try a Shirley Temple.
  • Swap those horns for a halo. (WARNING: May cause severe headache and blurred vision)
  • Eschew those kitten sammiches and go vegetarian.
  • Let your opponent win in the arena. (Bonus: This will confuse and befuddle the rest of Godville)
  • Befriend a monster and give HIM gold and an artifact.
  • Let the newbies go ahead of you in line at the physician's.
  • Bury yourself and let a mole dig you up.
  • Use the Encourage button. (WARNING: Not for the faint of heart)

See you all at Harvest Moon's End of The World party! It's been great knowing you!

NEXT WEEK: What am I saying? There won't BE a next week!

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

One explosive character!
Here we sit down weekly with a Harvest Moon warrior and find out what makes them tick. This week’s Deity is the inimitable HM matriarch: GodEtna 
  • Q: What are your heroine's marketable skills?
  • A: Knows how to revive her pet without divine intervention and makes crafty sacrifices to her goddess!
  • Q: What GV pet would you like to have?
  • A: All of you! Mwahahaha!
  • Q: What color underwear are you wearing?
  • A: Dark black, dark being key here ;)
  • Q: Do you have any hidden talents?
  • A: Nope, they are all public ;)
  • Q: Do you get emotional using Encourage when in times of crisis?
  • A: I feel like I just ate a rainbow... Not recommended at all...

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

End Of The World Party!

Join us for the last party of, well... EVAR!
The End of the World is upon us! It's all over on December 21, 2012 (956 g.e.) so we’re going to party like there’s no tomorrow! Join us for the big event on Thursday, 955 g.e. in the Harvest Moon guild hall (forum). There will be plenty of food (thanks to the fine efforts of the folks over at Godville’s Regiment and their friends), plenty to imbibe (Dark Flame and penguin smoothies for everyone!) and some terribly evil (and awesome) people to spend your last moments with. See you there!

Special Announcement

Don’t forget to order your Harvest Moon Merchandise!

Yes, the world ends in two days, but that’s no excuse. Make a statement with your final moments! Show the world you love your guild even if none of us will be here to see it! Head on over to the shop before it’s too late! http://www.cafepress.com/harvestmoonmerchandise

Member of the Week

Golden Condor: Not just another pretty face.
Get to know a newer member of Harvest Moon! This week's guest is: GodGolden Condor 
  • Q: How did you choose HM?
  • A: I got into HM due to Palringo. Majority of whom I know there are from HM. Them being a funny bunch and me being an active gladiator, I decided to join.
  • Q: Where does your heroine hide her coin purse?
  • A: Most probably in her beak. It's pretty big.
  • Q: Name some things that you and your heroine have in common.
  • A: She's from sesame street and I always got to watch her when I was a kid.
  • Q: What is your favorite voice command?
  • A: Being in the arena most of my time, I just use a couple. “Hit, kick, attack, punch, strike, kill, smite!” or “Heal!” She doesn't like to hurt others so I try to fill her head with the first phrase and hope she goes ballistic. Heal, she understands just fine.
  • Q: What toppings do you like on your kitten sammiches?
  • A: Ummm... Bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, and blue cheese.

Doctor Frank's Advice Corner

An evil queen
Dear Dr. Frank,

I’m currently in a temple race against a very formidable opponent. I’m ahead at the moment, but I know she can catch up at any time (because she’s really good at this.) How can I get bricks faster? I want to win! Scratch that, I will win! ...But any advice is much appreciated.

Signed, Why won’t she just give up?

Dearest “All I want for Christmas is my last two bricks,”

I’m sure whoever you’re currently-but-not-for-long outpacing is using the tried-and-true methods of blowing lots charges digging, fighting boss monsters, sending to arena (and winning) on a regular basis, and spamming influences while at the trader. Did you know it’s possible to make good progress without paying? Take your time! Really, what’s the rush? Building your temple is the largest of the readily-achievable goals in the game and once that’s done you’ve got... what? The pantheon of savings? Yay. Retirement. (Note: Sarcasm)

Why not give your ridiculously witty, charming and good looking rival (and your wallet) a break? Make sure you've set alerts to go off when your hero collects 3000 gold coins (melt!), arena every time you manage to have three charges and 100% god power, and dig after arena if you have the god power to do so. You really should take it easy. I’m sure your challenger won’t catch you.

Very sincerely,

Dr. Frank
