| <div id="mp-tfa" style="padding:2px 5px"> <div id="mp-dyk">[[File:The_Arena.jpg|right|thumb|Fallon Sky and Galldemort in the Arena]]A lot of people are talking about this subject, the biggest question is “Why do people arena but don’t fight back?” The answer to this (for some) is simple. Let’s look at the advantages and disadvantages of Arena and Skirmish.
+
| <div id="mp-tfa" style="padding:2px 5px"> <div id="mp-dyk">[[File:Promotions.jpg|right|thumb|Seemed like a good idea at the time...]]'''The Blood Council''' has searched for a long several minutes and managed to find three trustworthy members willing to be promoted to position of '''Officer of [[Harvest Moon]].'''
 
+
'''Arena:'''
+
'''''New Officers of the Blood Council:'''''
 
+
* '''Artemys''' - Blood Moon Huntress
Advantages:
+
* '''God Of Tasty''' - Gastronomer of the Moon
* A chance for a Golden Brick just for entering the Arena.
+
* '''Kure''' - Blood Moon Vulpini
* No loss of equipment, artifacts or gold bricks from your OWN temple if you lose.
+
* You may meet another God/Goddess who entered to avoid skirmish.
+
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.
* If you win, you get 100% godpower plus 1 extra charge to your accumulator.
 
* You only lose gold
 
 
 
Disadvantages:
 
* If you want a good Gladiator pantheon ranking you will need to win.
 
* You may meet a Gladiator who has a very high record and is a great fighter.
 
 
 
'''Skirmish:'''
 
 
 
Advantages:
 
* If you win, you get all of the other players artifacts and gold.
 
* You might acquire higher grade equipment from the other player.
 
* You might win a gold brick from the other player’s temple count (not temple owners).
 
* Opponent may be sleeping so you can get an easy win.
 
  
Disadvantages:
+
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!
* You may be sleeping when it happens.
 
* You can lose all of your artifacts, gold and even risk equipment and a gold brick from your temple (not temple owners)
 
* No godpower given for winning.
 
* No golden brick given for winning.
 
  
Taking these points into consideration, matching in the arena every 3rd day carries far lower risk and higher reward. Try to send when your inventory is half full (or less) and your hero has a low gold count, or (ideally) after a death/resurrection.
+
'''''Distinguished Members:'''''
 +
* '''Shadow Luxio''' - Sominator Lune
 +
* '''Ex Machina 3000''' - Blood Moon Midas
 +
* '''JmfC''' - Wildcard of the Moon
 +
* '''Proxes''' - Sleeper of the Moon

It's the holiday season again, and that means decorating the tree! I, for one, get so discouraged trying to find decorations - it seems the stores are filled with sparkly, pretty, cheerful and cute ornaments that certainly don't fit into my evil lifestyle. A simple solution is to make your own! This year, my tree will be hung with:
+
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.
+
 
* Black widow spiders! Their red hourglass markings are very festive, they just scream "pure evil!," and they're a wonderful way to get rid of unwanted guests.
+
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?
* Raw ground (kitten, puppy, dust bunny) meatballs! They start out a holiday red and by December 25 will have turned a lovely shade of Christmas green. Plus, the aroma will mask the nasty pine tree odor, and they'll attract flies for the black widow spiders.
+
 
* Feathered boa constrictors! Save those feathered boas whenever your hero conjures up a statue of your beloved leader in town - they make stunning tree garlands. Or drape over doorways to add that element of surprise for your guests.
+
Next week: Baking with Bella!  
 
Happy decorating! Next week: homemade gifts for your goody-goody friends and allies!

''I don’t know how many times my hero tried to leave his/her guild. He’s tried so many times I’ve lost count, you’d think he’d understand not to by this point right? Nope. The next morning he’s up and at it again. What do I do?''

 +
''Signed, Tired of this Fight.''
  
Dearest The word “Happy” makes me want to slap you,
 
  
A) You know that little remote control you were magically endowed with when you acquired your hero? You see that button there? No, not that one... the other one. Yeah! The “Punish” button! Use it! Make the ungrateful dweeb think twice about making decisions without consulting you!
+
Dearest Sleepy Skirmisher,
  
B) Join [[Harvest Moon]]! Yes, he might try to quest out a time or five, but it’s not because he doesn’t love it there, he’s just making sure you’re paying attention. I mean, if he ''really'' wanted to leave, would he give you two days to change his mind? Hmm? Tell him to cancel or abandon his silly little quest, After a mere 135 days, he’ll never try to leave again! He just needs reassurance! And punishment. Really. He likes it. He told me.
+
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.

Tastes Like Chicken #6

Guild Member Promotions

Seemed like a good idea at the time...
The Blood Council has searched for a long several minutes and managed to find three trustworthy members willing to be promoted to position of Officer of Harvest Moon.

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!

Distinguished Members:

  • Shadow Luxio - Sominator Lune
  • Ex Machina 3000 - Blood Moon Midas
  • JmfC - Wildcard of the Moon
  • Proxes - Sleeper of the Moon

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!

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.

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?

Next week: Baking with Bella!

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.

The Harvest Moon Website

Did you know: The Harvest Moon website is full of game information researched by many gods and goddesses from around Godville? If ever you have a question you need answered, check the site. If your answer is not there, you're welcome to post on the site or contact GodMagic Merlin  directly. The link for the site is: https://sites.google.com/site/harvestmoonguild.

Get To Know a Deity

"My butt is fabulass..."
Here we sit down weekly with a Harvest Moon warrior and find out what makes them tick. Because being featured once per issue isn't nearly enough, this week's guest is none other than our Empress: GodBellatrixie The Strange 
  • Q: What is your favorite salty snack?
  • A: Pringles. Especially with kitten paté. Plus, the tubes make great puppy launchers. (eyes Mort's temple)
  • Q: What are your hero's marketable skills?
  • A: I'll get back to you if he ever acquires any. (hits Punish button yet again)
  • Q: What color underwear are you wearing?
  • A: (Drops pants) You tell me. And isn't my butt fabulass?
  • Q: Do you get emotional using Encourage when in times of crisis?
  • A: What is this "encourage" you speak of? Is that Swahili?
  • Q: Do you have any hidden talents?
  • A: No, I flaunt them for all to see and envy.

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

Doctor Frank's Advice Corner

An evil queen
Dear Dr. Frank,

I don't know what to do! My hero got into yet another skirmish! This is the second one this week and he had 6000 coins, 5 bold items - one being an invite - and lost it all! What do I do?

Signed, Tired of this Fight.


Dearest Sleepy Skirmisher,

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 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.

Yours,

Dr. Frank
