The next major project your hero or heroine will embark upon once completing a temple in Your honor is the construction of an Ark. Completion of an ark requires the collection of 1000 logs of gopher wood. Building an ark is the second of five goals heroes aim to accomplish during their lives.
After completing the construction of a temple, a hero will begin collecting gopher wood by finding temple offerings, successfully exiting through the treasury in dungeons, completing quests and side jobs, and winning fights in the arena. Gopher wood logs are less common in Godville than gold bricks, so collecting these will take your hero longer than it took to complete the temple.
Once the thousandth log has been collected, the hero will be able to embark on an entirely new adventure: sailing. As your hero continues to collect gopher wood logs, the completion of the ark will continue to climb over 100%. Every 1000 logs collected will allow the hero to add another deck onto the ark, with the ark growing more powerful and useful with each additional deck.

Additional Pet Benefits
Once a hero finishes constructing an ark, they will gain the ability to store up to three pets in it. After receiving a "Put into ark" command from the deity (50% godpower), the hero will make a mental note, and will place their current pet in the ark upon return to Godville by their own accord (after the end of a quest, for example) and, after that, will be free to tame a new pet. Switching a pet by the hero's side with one in the ark also costs 50% godpower. Note, if a Deity would like to switch a pet with one in the ark (in other words, put the current pet in the ark and take a pet from the ark out), click "In the ark" and choose the pet to switch. There is no need to put the current pet into the ark (50% godpower) and then remove a pet from the ark (50% godpower).
Accordingly, a hero with an ark can have up to four pets (three in the ark and one at the hero's side). This ability removes the pain of separation from a pet should it be knocked out and unable to further gain pet levels. With each additional 1000 logs collected, another deck is added to the ark, making space for one additional pet to be stored there. Each additional 1000 logs also increases the strength of the ark when sailing, to a maximum of 150.
Ark owning gods finally become powerful enough to rename any of their hero 's pets. A pet name can be changed only once. Names that don't conform to the Game Rules will be rolled back, and the offending Deity's ability to name their pets will be lost. A pet name must be capitalised and cannot contain spaces, special characters, or any other capital letters.
Additionally, heroes and heroines with a completed ark find the level range to tame monsters is increased. This makes it possible to tame monsters that they would normally be either too high or too low in level to tame.
A pet that has been stored in the ark for at least 6 months can also be set free.
A New Type of Medal
In addition to storing pets, ark-owning gods gain a new medal next to their name:. The Chinese character is pronounced 'zhōu' and translates as 'boat'. The date and time of ark completion appears on mouseover of the medal.
Heroes with an ark can store creatures. After completing an ark, a hero starts collecting two of every kind of creature—manimals and fenimals. Manimals and fenimals can be obtained by fishing, sailing.
