Last week, we discussed the “Ignorant and Ambitious” 2nd Generation. Today we discuss the “All GV can BE” 3rd Gen.
  
'''The Second Generation of Godville: 232 g.e. - 462 g.e''' <br>Gods 22-29 months old
+
'''The Third Generation of Godville: 462 g.e. - 694 g.e''' <br>Gods 14-22 months old
  
As the wars of the 1st gens died down early in the 2nd generation, the gods who fought in them did not forget the battlefields after the peace came. Throughout the entire 2nd generation, many of these 1st gen gods argued about who did what to who and fairness and cheating... all the while new players were coming online with exciting updates to the droid app making Godville more like the browser version. The 2nd gen gods had no clue why people cared so much about fighting so viciously in the forums and many of them tried desperately to bring peace and lighten the mood.
+
As a first generation god, {{god|Ulvolose}} said [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/546?page=121#post_110751 “As for us Belteshazzar, I think we’re now officially old. Though I dare say we are not, yet, quite washed up.”]
  
Guilds were created around the entire notion of having no enemies and no fighting at all. Guilds like...
+
The wars were ancient history and the 2nd generation was busy breaking records, but a whole new generation of gods wanted more out of their “zero player game” experience. The developers added new activatable artifacts and the Enhancement Room by late December but could not seem keep up with the thirst for excitement that these new gods craved. The old gods, on the other hand, could! 1st Gen gods found a new role for themselves in the helping to educate the young skulls full of mush in the ways of Godville.
  
Blue Feather, Guild Name, Lucky God Casino and Ankh-Morpork City Watch, who state it best in their wiki: “...a model of diversity (though perhaps not efficiency) by recruiting heroes from all races, classes and abilities (or lack thereof).

New guilds were created around the idea of special events, or gimmicks like...
  
Things were looking up in Godville, if perhaps people couldn't forgive they may be just able to forget the transgressions of the past.
+
* [[Skeatseria Lodge]] was ''founded 9-14-2011'' with it's pantheons celebrating the most spent on booze.
 +
* [[Open Bar]] was ''founded 10-2-11'' as more of a nightclub than a guild, a social hangout for all breeds of god.
 +
* [[sowing Sun]] was ''founded 11-14-11'' and with a new play each week, they became the place for date night for the dateless.
 +
* [[Gamer’s Guild]] was ''founded 3-25-12'' and did their first, highly loved, murder mystery – a fun role play adventure.
  
'''Great gods of the second generation:'''
+
Even old guilds wanted to get in the fun, [[Harvest Moon]] started the “1st GV Gladiator Open” which began 10/3/11 and was the inspiration to all the great tounaments to follow! The winner was {{god|Fist of Fury}} and his hero Afrobenny.
  
* God {{god|Epoch}} – Taught us a gold coin is worth about $580.50.
+
[[Wiki Leagues]] had their first “Interspecies Mud Wrestling Tournament” on 3/23/12. Winner: {{god|King of Popstar}} and his hero Mighty Kirby.
* God {{god|Sniper404}} – Travelled Godville spreading knowledge.
 
* God {{god|Issu}} – Although AFK for months now, still holds many spots on page one of the [[pantheon of gladiatorship]], including 1st.

''My heroine refuses to obey my heal VCs many times throughout my day, and I end up with not enough GP to punish her.  What can I do to make her listen to me since she is too stupid to heal herself?''

''Signed, Too evil to Punish''

''Signed, {{god|Azzageddi}}''
  
Dearest, There’s no such thing as TOO EVIL!

Dearest, Azz (a.k.a. the author of the 2nd-most-loved poem in all of Godville)
  
Why, in the name of all that is unholy, are you so concerned for your heroine’s health? Let her rot in the field for a couple of hours next time she dies and she might think twice before ignoring you again. I see so many “evil” god/desses who jump to resurrect their hero/ine the second they die and I think, “Why?” When Riff-raff kicks it, I take the opportunity to ignore him completely and get some things done around the guild hall, go shopping for a new corset, or yell at him while he’s a... captive audience.
+
Your question is pure poetry, and I’m ''so'' glad you came to me with this. I know there have been times when the … legalities of my … business have come into question, and I’m very thankful you’ve been willing to let bygones be bygones <s>and that I’ve since learned to disguise my activites</s> but, anyway, here we are and oh, boy, do I have an answer!!
  
“What? This isn’t a good time for you? Too busy now? Maybe next time you’ll listen when I tell you to heal!
+
The standard brands in favor are: ASP, Smith & Wesson, Peerless and Hiats. I used to say Peerless, but since they discontinued the 301s (unless you can find them on gvBay, you’ll be stuck with the 801s) and they’ve been plagued with recalls, I’d avoid them. If you’re concerned about the comfort of your <s>victims</s> umm... perps? I’ll run with that. If you’re concerned with the comfort of your perps, you’ll want double locking cuffs so they don’t tighten too much on the wrists <s>or ankles</s>. My favorite double-locking cuffs are the S&W, but I know others who really prefer the ASP. For all-purpose, fits any perp with no fuss and no muss, go with the Hiats “big guy” cuffs. Mmmmm... Love those big guys! I’m speaking of the cuffs, of course. Not to confuse things, further, but you really should look into getting a set of the Clejuso brand cuffs, leg irons, and security belt for those... special occasions. The pieces work seamlessly with each other, they have a variety of cuff types, and they’re really pretty, too! Pricy, but well worth it!
  
Does it work? Nope. Do I feel better? Sometimes. At the very least, I’ve amused myself by taunting his sentient corpse as he begs for mercy. Keep in mind that a well-placed punish can kill the monster for your heroine or even heal her when you least expect it. No Godpower to Punish? Spend it on asking for a prayer or two instead of a heal command and you may get exactly what you need.
+
Sadly, I cannot get you a discount on any of these cuffs, but perhaps if we went in on an order together, we could get a bulk rate?

You know what I miss? The good ol' days, when you could go outside around the 4th of July, and you were guaranteed to see some middle-aged gentlemen wearing absurd outfits to entertain people. A true staple of freedom and patriotism. I'm talking about the barbershop quartet.
 +
 
 +
This was a more simple time, when you could point out the dorks in a crowd if you were strapped to a rocket and launched a mile into the air. Easy pickin's. The ones wearing the tweed hats and tweed jackets, tweed pants and even briefs I bet. A time when America's freedom was at its best.
 +
 
 +
Barbershop quartets are very much a symbol of democracy. Because if they'd happened in a dictatorship, they'd all been dragged outside and tossed in an icy lake. While wearing matching cement shoes. Only in a free country could such a reversal of atrocities occur.
 +
 
 +
Subjecting folks to their singing, these quartets were the original gangs. It's a little known fact that such infamous people as the Jesse James gang, Al Capone's syndicate and the Olsen twins all started out as barbershop quartets. I mean to tell you, slaying people with cheesy numbers and waxed mustaches only paved the way for the brutality they would inflict on the country in later years.
 +
 
 +
What may surprise you is that some people (much like those who idolize Jesse James and Al Capone) still think of these quartets as something to be admired. What won't surprise you is that the majority of the audience won't reciprocate these feelings. They can't seem to admit it or voice their sentiments, and therefore encourage such crimes against the state to carry on every summer.

He paid with a $100 bill. This is the number of legs he received, the number of each animal he bought, and the change he got from the transaction.

The Generations of Godville

Putting the “fun” back in “dysfunctional”.
The 3rd Generation
By: GodHairplug4men 

Last week, we discussed the “Ignorant and Ambitious” 2nd Generation. Today we discuss the “All GV can BE” 3rd Gen.

The Third Generation of Godville: 462 g.e. - 694 g.e
Gods 14-22 months old

As a first generation god, GodUlvolose  said “As for us Belteshazzar, I think we’re now officially old. Though I dare say we are not, yet, quite washed up.”

The wars were ancient history and the 2nd generation was busy breaking records, but a whole new generation of gods wanted more out of their “zero player game” experience. The developers added new activatable artifacts and the Enhancement Room by late December but could not seem keep up with the thirst for excitement that these new gods craved. The old gods, on the other hand, could! 1st Gen gods found a new role for themselves in the helping to educate the young skulls full of mush in the ways of Godville.

New guilds were created around the idea of special events, or gimmicks like...

  • Skeatseria Lodge was founded 9-14-2011 with it's pantheons celebrating the most spent on booze.
  • Open Bar was founded 10-2-11 as more of a nightclub than a guild, a social hangout for all breeds of god.
  • sowing Sun was founded 11-14-11 and with a new play each week, they became the place for date night for the dateless.
  • Gamer’s Guild was founded 3-25-12 and did their first, highly loved, murder mystery – a fun role play adventure.

Even old guilds wanted to get in the fun, Harvest Moon started the “1st GV Gladiator Open” which began 10/3/11 and was the inspiration to all the great tounaments to follow! The winner was GodFist of Fury  and his hero Afrobenny.

Wiki Leagues had their first “Interspecies Mud Wrestling Tournament” on 3/23/12. Winner: GodKing of Popstar  and his hero Mighty Kirby.

Great gods of the third generation:

Favorite HM 3rd gen gods:

Doctor Frank's Advice Corner

An evil queen
Dear Dr. Frank,

Needless to say, we City Watch cops go through a lot of handcuffs. What’s your favorite type and can you get us a bulk discount? Signed, GodAzzageddi 

Dearest, Azz (a.k.a. the author of the 2nd-most-loved poem in all of Godville)

Your question is pure poetry, and I’m so glad you came to me with this. I know there have been times when the … legalities of my … business have come into question, and I’m very thankful you’ve been willing to let bygones be bygones and that I’ve since learned to disguise my activites but, anyway, here we are and oh, boy, do I have an answer!!

The standard brands in favor are: ASP, Smith & Wesson, Peerless and Hiats. I used to say Peerless, but since they discontinued the 301s (unless you can find them on gvBay, you’ll be stuck with the 801s) and they’ve been plagued with recalls, I’d avoid them. If you’re concerned about the comfort of your victims umm... perps? I’ll run with that. If you’re concerned with the comfort of your perps, you’ll want double locking cuffs so they don’t tighten too much on the wrists or ankles. My favorite double-locking cuffs are the S&W, but I know others who really prefer the ASP. For all-purpose, fits any perp with no fuss and no muss, go with the Hiats “big guy” cuffs. Mmmmm... Love those big guys! I’m speaking of the cuffs, of course. Not to confuse things, further, but you really should look into getting a set of the Clejuso brand cuffs, leg irons, and security belt for those... special occasions. The pieces work seamlessly with each other, they have a variety of cuff types, and they’re really pretty, too! Pricy, but well worth it!

Sadly, I cannot get you a discount on any of these cuffs, but perhaps if we went in on an order together, we could get a bulk rate?

Yours,

Dr. Frank

Fun with Fiends

We’ll make you wish you were dead.
Here we sit down periodically with a common opponent (a.k.a. a Godville monster) and find out what’s behind the mask. This week’s fiend is: Lying King.
  • Q: Why do you fight heroes?
  • A: Because I'm a porcupine.
  • Q: You're not a porcupine...?
  • A: I am a porcupine in disguise as a sea lion.
  • Q: Are you lying?
  • A: Everything I say is a lie, including this.
  • Q: Alright. So, how did you become a Lying King?
  • A: Through my natural ability to lead lemmings up a cliff.
  • Q: Up a cliff?
  • A: Yeah, why would they go down?
  • Q: Eh... Uhm... Moving on. What is your primary method of transportation?
  • A: I usually travel by pig, but when the flying pigs can't hold me, I may call for my private luxury jet.
  • Q: I see. As a Lying King, how many subjects do you have?
  • A: Around two billion, and they're all interviewers like you. You look like a fine example. I might be willing to accept you as my subject if you ask nicely.
  • Q: Oh...kay... I think we should round off here...
  • A: Oh, don't go, I need to tell you about my brave rescue of a Maítre Demon from the desert of Python last year! You see...
  • Q: I'm sorry, Your Lying Highness, but-
  • A: ...and the double dragon was flying around the square tower of the Feral Hero, ready to fight back against anyone who wanted to rescue the fair maiden...

This was the last transmission received from our interviewer. We hope he will be back by next week. If you have a burning question for a Godville monster, or a particular monster you’d like to know more about, submit your questions or ideas to the HMWH staff. Thank you.

Belteshazzar the Confounding

Belt knows all! Or he’s lost it. We aren’t sure yet.
We welcome back GodBelteshazzar  after a short institutionalized respite from the daily grind of being the most confounding god in Godville. He can predict the future! Will he? Eh... Maybe. This week's Confoundee, GodElementarion !
  • Q: What question are you unable to answer?
  • A: This one. Oops! I mean... Wow, really? Right out of the gate, you ask that one? I can see already how this is going to go....by using my cubic zarconia ball, that is!

    The question I will never be ABLE to answer is this: "How old are you, Belt the Confounder, in Xyrtium years?" See, I only SEE the future. Doesn't mean I can suddenly read Xyrtium script.
  • Q: Will you ever be able to answer that question?
  • A: Um, is this a trick question? Did I miss something? Obviously, the answer is no.
  • Q: What is the answer to the answer of question #1?
  • A: ...you're really trying my patience now. Get on with it.
  • Q: Will people ever figure out what the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything is?
  • A: Yes, just before it crushes them flat under its immense weight.
  • Q: Will heroes ever become friends with monsters?
  • A: Seriously? Two words: so simple. Heard of pets? Former monsters. So, yes. We can be friends.

That'll be an extra fee for this week’s confoundee for these all too simple questions for a mind such as I have! Read next week’s column for a special retrospective interview with one of history's famous royalty!

  • Each week, there will be four “questions” posted here (and only here) in the Weekly Harvest. Answers to the questions can be found in the wiki, on the HM web site, in the forums or will be math/logic-based.
  • Your “answers” must be in question form (a-la Jeopardy!).
  • Answers must be submitted via the Harvest Moon Forum. Answers only, please! Don’t give away the questions to non-WH readers.
  • The first god/dess to get all four questions right will win four (4) charges and be automatically entered to play in the Over the Moon Championship, held monthly on Palringo (yes, you’ll need to join Pal to play).
  • The winner of the OtM Championship (to be based on a different game show each month) will receive 45 charges!!

This week’s Answers:

  1. This man sang: “Because I’m still in love with you on this Harvest Moon.”
  2. This is the name of the largest crater nearest the Apollo 11 moon landing site.
  3. This is the name of the only real Man in the Moon.
  4. Dr. Frank is out of legs, so he visits the local Legs Dealer to restock. The Legs Dealer has Naturalblondechicks (NBCs), goats, and sheep available. NBCs have two legs and cost $1.75. Goats and sheep both have four legs, and cost $3.50 and $7 respectively. After Dr. Frank bought at least one of each animal, he made sure to maximize the number of legs he could get for his money. He paid with a $100 bill. This is the number of legs he received, the number of each animal he bought, and the change he got from the transaction.

Congratulations to GodGodofbeer , the winner of last week’s quiz and the first to move on to the next Over the Moon Championship round! We have an amazingly fun game lined up for the Championship this time. Who will join him? It could be you! See you in the forums!
