<div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style= "border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id="Approval">'''Meeting my god '''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
A long time ago I met my god, the [http://godvillegame.com/gods/High%20king%20of%20undies High king of undies]. He searched for a hero to do his bidding and there I was. He nicknamed me '''"last choice"''' from the first moment we met. My lord isn't all that smart for saving his best choice for last but he did make the right decision.
</div></div> <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style= "border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id="Approval">'''My first diary '''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
My god instructed me to buy a diary before I could become a full fledged hero. Didn't see any logic connection but I obeyed my god and went shopping.
Maybe that way we can form some sort of bond or something else that's really important for almighty one and me.
</div></div> <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style="border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id="Approval">'''Joining a guild'''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
After a few intense days of questing I decided to join a guild. I’ve spend a lot of time doing research to find the perfect guild for me and when I was almost done Almighty ordered me to join Blue Feather.
I will listen to Almighty and join Blue Feather and then I will just try to sneak out after a few days to join the guild I want to be in.
</div></div> <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style= "border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id="Approval">'''My own decision '''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
My plan to leave the guild Blue Feather didn’t work. Almighty keeps catching me trying to join another guild. I wish there was a decision in my life that I could make on my own.
I noticed the eerie sensation of Almighty’s eyes burning in my back was fading away and decided the next monster I encountered to be my pet.
</div></div> <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style= "border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id="Approval">'''Boo '''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
As I was searching for the perfect pet I got bit in my ankle by a giant rat. I had my doubts about it but decided to put on a leash before Almighty came back and ruins this moment.
I didn’t have a choice since I knew Almighty could be back any time. I quickly leashed the Firefox, named him Boo and pretended the last 5 minutes didn’t happen.
</div></div> <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style="border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id="Approval">'''Maybe I’m not so mature'''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
One day Boo and I encountered a vicious Nobodyguard. We fought bravely but we couldn’t defeat it. The monster had me cornered and was ready to cast the final blow.
I’ve waited for hours but I heard no beep. After a while I calmed down and returned to town. Maybe someone can save my Firefox.
</div></div> <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style="border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id="Approval">'''Am I too late?'''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
Back in town I learned of a way to revive Boo. The only thing that can save Boo is a lot of gold. They say gold is not the most important thing in the world but those people probably keep their pets at home instead of taking them with them to go on dangerous adventures like every responsible pet owner does.
I couldn’t understand the priest’s response (because I punched out all his teeth). Gave Boo a big hug and smuggled him into the tavern for a party.
</div></div> <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style= "border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id="Approval">'''The strange device '''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
Day after day, quest after quest, death after death, my life isn’t getting any easier for me. There must be a way to make life better. Gold is the only way.
For now it seems to be a good idea to return to the publisher and get a drink first.
</div></div> <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style= "border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id="Approval">'''Publishing My Chronicles '''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
After Finishing my drinks I went to see the publisher to work out a deal to sell my chronicles in Godville. We worked out a deal, in order to get my chronicles published I must save one million gold coins.
After leaving the “Daily Tankard” behind I went back to questing to finish my temple and save one freaking million gold coins. I bet Boo already ate half a million gold coins after all the time we spend together so maybe if I shake him hard enough some of it comes out.
</div></div> <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style= "border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id="Approval">'''My Decision To Stay '''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
Entered the Blue Feather guild hall when suddenly confetti bombs were thrown in my face by the other guild members. After Picking all the confetti out of my nose the guild chef yelled “Food fight!” And made it rain delicious cherry pies. Which caused a massive food war. The chance one starves in this guild is as big as a fish drowning in water.
It was just another day at the office untill I was handed a cupcake with a candle in it. “Congratulations upon reaching Cardinal rank!” Yelled everyone in unison. Maybe this guild isn’t that bad after all.
</div></div> <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style= "border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id="Approval">'''It’s Finally Complete '''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
Finally, finally! One thousand bricks, I have them all. Upon placing the last brick I was filled with the feeling of accomplishment.
That’s it Almighty! I’m off to buy sunglasses.
</div></div> <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style="border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id= "Approval">'''The Other Side, Of My Almight-y '''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
For reason unknown, Almighty split his power and created a new goddess, the High queen of undies. This goddess was championed by the heroine called Lady undie.
Please Almighty, if you read this; ANSWER ME!
</div></div> <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style= "border-width:0; padding:0;">* <span id="Approval">'''The Ideaboxers Union '''</span><div class=="mw-collapsible-content">
I’ve been following this “Lady undie” for a while now and discovered she joined the guild called The Ideaboxers Union.
Almighty, are you part of all of this as well?

Diary entries and Earthly News are the most basic entries, and a very good place to start for any Ideaboxer-to-be. These lectures explain how to do them.

If it’s too long, clunky, or you just aren’t sure if the joke is clear enough… ask a friend, discuss it in guild council, or talk to an Ideaboxer (someone with a ✔ in their motto). If you feel like you have a good seed, but can’t think of anything good on your own, consider “donating” it to the Ideaboxing Game by using it as the topic for the next person.

== Quest Ending ==
Hours and hours spend questing and finally you get the rewards: experience, gold, a golden brick or perhaps nothing at all. A lot of quests in Godville have an extra reward, an unique quest ending!

Before we start about doing quest endings, first some general information about them.
 
Let’s start with a short FAQ!
 
<div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style="border-width:0; padding:0;">
* <span id="Approval">'''How do you suggest quest endings?'''</span>
<div class="mw-collapsible-content">
 
There are 2 ways. The first way is to enter the link of [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/2780?page=1#post_330278 this post], which is the thread “Adding endings to existing quests” in the Workmen’s Area. The second way is to go to the quests part of the feedback and click on the link there. Alternatively, you could just use this link: http://godvillegame.com/ideabox/quests.

<div class="mw-collapsible-content">
 
Quest endings do give IQ and Gratitude points: 7 IQ points and 1 Gratitude point, just as much as any idea. In fact, when I have writer’s block they are easier for me, as part of the creativity (the quest name) is already supplied.

Good question. Let’s start!
</div>
</div>
 
Quest endings may vary in length from 5 words (the absolute minimum) to a few sentences, may vary in style from a short punchline to a short and silly “story”, but they all have to follow some pattern. Here are some basic guidelines and reccomandations which I did not copy from the place where you suggest quest endings.
 
#It’s assumed that a hero completes a quest over some time (even longer for epics), so an ending should imply that some work was done, before the hero reached the conclusion described in the ending (not just an punchline for the the quest title). This is not true 100% of the time, and you can see some quest endings in game that don’t follow this guideline, but quest endings are much likely to be accepted if they do follow this guideline.
#Keep in mind that a hero can do the same quest multiple times. I personally have never found this much of a problem personally, but keep this in mind. Again, not true 100% of the time.
#An ending shouldn’t be too long. Very important. Remember that in game quest endings appear together with the quest reward, so if it’s more than 2-3 sentences it will be too boring. True 100% of the time.
#A quest is done in the fields, so an ending that says that a hero just did something in the tavern/bar/town will look out of place. Important. This may seem deterring and strict at first, but it actually helps me a lot, since it gives me the possibility to write that the hero is returning to the tavern.
#There should be no %artifact%, %gold% coins, %rg%, golden bricks references or any other variables in the ending (gender variations are ok. e.g {he|she}, {God|||Goddess}). Very important. No rule bending at all for this one.
#An ending should not include the exact title of the quest (full ending phrase in the diary already includes the quest title). Likewise.
 
So, now that we’ve covered pretty much everything except how we think of them, how do we think of them?
 
First, we need some quests to work on. You could search for quests in game, but the best way is to go to the quests endings section and look at the 4 endingless quests there which are changed every day. Let’s choose the ones that were there yesterday (24 of September), which are:
 
discover why day breaks and night falls
wake the dead with breakfast in bed
set up a chain mail account
climb the social ladder to get god’s beard
The first step is to understand what’s the joke/point of each quest. The first quest is a play on words on the fact that we say “day breaks” but “night falls”. The second quest is a combination of the rather morbid phrase “wake the dead” with the lighthearted phrase “breakfast in bed”, which causes a funny contrast. The third one is a play on words of the phrase “chain mail” and “mail account”. The fourth one is combining two metaphors “climb the social ladder” and “to get god’s beard”.
 
The second step is to think of the connections each thing has. Remember, you won’t be able to do this with every idea, but you should try. For example: with the first quest, the word “break” and the word “fall” both have an injury-related meaning. Maybe do something around that?
 
In the second quest, waking the dead is connected with zombies. Zombies like to eat brains. Hint much?
 
In the third quest, we could humorously remove the space between “chain” and “mail”, making the hero set up a chainmail account, something completely different!
 
In the fourth quest, well… Hmm… This is one example where I can’t find anything. Luckily, I have 3 other quests and I’ll have 4 more options tomorrow.
 
The third step is to think of actual ideas. For the first quest I could do something like: “It turns out that Night fell once and broke Day’s leg. Maybe that’s why Night is so dark and gloomy all the time!”
 
For the second quest, I could do something like: “Apparently they like brains more then they like cereal. I’m out of here!”
 
For the third quest, maybe something on the lines of: “All that chainmail armor sure was heavy, but I finally did it!”
 
The fourth and final step is to explain. Quest endings are unique in that that they have to have explanations which have a minimum of 5 words. The first quest: “It plays on the injury-related meanings of break and fall, and makes an extra pun about how night is ‘dark’ in the meaning of sad and bleak, but also dark in the meaning of not lighted.”
 
For the second quest: “It relates waking the dead to zombies, and how the zombies prefer to eat the hero’s brain then the breakfast he brought them.”
 
For the third quest: “The hero got confused between setting up a mail account and between setting up a chainmail (a type of armor) account.”
 
Now send it to the devs, and hope it will be accepted.

== Sailing ==
Waves crashing against the wood, rain pouring down on the crew and the only thing that deafens the sound of screams and prayers are the merciless thunderclouds roaring in the heavens. Sailing the open seas isn't for the weak and fragile.

Lecture given by: {{god| High king of undies}}
 
So I’m gonna try writing something about the new sailing category, it wont be a real lecture. Mostly it will be assumptions on what kinds of entries we already know we can submit.
 
Alright so we don’t know much of what happens when sailing, but the chance that the hero will be at sea is big. So we need to remind ourselves that we adjust our submissions accordingly.
 
There’s not much we can be sure of but as far as I can tell there is one thing that we can all be sure about is that we can still use the Remote Control. Thus we can submit:
 
* Encourage
* Punish
* Miracle
* God Voice
 
Knowing that we are at sea and that we can use the Remote Control we can start submitting ideas like this:
 
Encourage
 
A mermaid jumped onboard and tended to my wounds.
 
Punish:
 
A deafening thunderclap scared all my pets. Come back!
 
Miracle:
 
A huge wave heading towards the ark deviated from it’s at the last minute. Thank you, %rg%. My pets all started to praise you, at least that’s what it sounds like.
 
God voice:
== Lecture 10: Coming Soon == The crew from a passing ship can be heard singing “%god_phrase%”.This is the best I can do for now. Untill we get more information on the new category we’ll just have to go with this.</div></div>
