• We are a strong, cohesive and fun community of players who like to chat and help each other.

• We have quite a few temple owners, who keep our stats high so that all our members receive a continual supply of gold and other rewards (when viewing our town influence level, remember that only the top 5 towns are visible, so don’t worry - we still have high influence levels in all the other towns!)

• We are an evil guild. Everyone is welcome to join, provided they have an evil alignment.

• Our members include many of the oldest and most powerful gods in Godville, who are happy to be asked questions and share wisdom with their guild mates. Ask us anything; arena combat, how best to guide an evil hero, temple building, you name it!

• We suggest that new members start by friending one of our official welcomers in order to be formally welcomed to the guild and discover how you can get the most out of your membership. The current list is GodBellatrixie The Strange , GodLady Darkness , GodNenalata , GodDoctor Frank-n-furter , GodZeerty , GodRufusTJYND , GodSoft , and GodPialphamu . You should get a response fairly quickly, but in the event that you don't, please friend someone else from the list as the person you contacted first may be away or busy.

• If you wish to join our dark ranks, send a voice saying Join the "Harvest Moon" guild while your hero is outside a city until the hero decides to switch quests. Do not cancel your current quest first.

• Should your hero be foolish enough to start questing to leave us, aside from punishing the insolent whelp, we suggest that you order them repeatedly to "cancel quest". This can sometimes take over 20 tries, so persistence is the key!

• Our guild has a lot going on behind the scenes. Integral to our functioning is an easy to use chat program called Palringo. To find out more details, including how to join Palringo, just click on the following link: [Harvest Moon Blog Post].

Introduction

From across the oceans on the distant continent of Azaeloth came the Harvest Moon. Evil mercenaries who follow the arts of dark and evil gods, the Harvest Moon traversed the Ocean of Tears to come to Godville to establish expand their following and influence. The masters of the guild are those of the emptiest hearts, who seek to expand the influence of the Harvest Moon through terror. Harvest Moon welcomes those who follow the arts of destruction.

The Harvest Moon

History

The Harvest Moon occurs once every 10 years, and when it does it is a time of great terror. In the old days, the Cult of Blood would attempt to harness the Moon's dark energy by the means of sacrifice. They would "harvest" the souls of their victims and offer them to the blood red moon in return for great and terrible power.

Over time members of the cult were hunted down and killed, as the rest fled over the ocean and inhabited the land of Godville. By this time they had forgotten the rituals they would use to carry out the Harvest Moon Sacrifice. Although their methods are lost, there are still the guild masters who tirelessly hunt for a way to harness the Moon's great power once more, and recruit other "heroes" to help them in their search for power...

Guild Strongholds

Our sacred seal

We currently have five major footholds in this land, in the towns of Herolympus, Anville, San Satanos, Last Resort and Beerburgh. Those who defy our rule in our areas of influence are severely punished for their blasphemy. Our followers affix a magical, sacred seal on their doors which not only allow them to show their support, but also protect them when we purge an area of any resistance.

Our strongholds are easily recognizable. They are vast, strong fortresses of darkness, perpetually surrounded by black storm clouds. The fortress is surrounded by a lake of blood, and atop the impressive towers made of bone are great luminous red crystals - ancient storage devices through which we channel dark energy in return for great and terrible power.

Arena Policy

We avoid each other by announcing when we're entering the arena, while others wait their turn if they are a close enough level to risk being matched with them. This is done by making announcements a special "Arena" chat room in Palringo. The players need to be within 4 levels of each other to be at risk of being matched, provided at least one of them is below level 30. Otherwise, players up to 5 levels apart can be matched. The 2 key words we use are entering to announce that you're entering the arena, and safe to let others know that you have either found an opponent or that your hero has given up and left, so there's no longer a risk of being matched with you. You can also announce that you are queuing and intend to enter when it's next safe to do so.

We realize that many players also announce they are entering arena via the Guild Council chat in Godville. We must warn that this is not a secure area in which to announce, since we have no control over who joins Harvest Moon (some of whom may be alternate accounts of other Godville users in different guilds). Therefore, we recommend posting on Guild Council only at your discretion, since you open yourself up to the potential of being stalked.

Despite all precautions taken, it is almost inevitable that Harvest Moon members will match in the arena from time to time. When this happens, we recommend that the matched guildmates try to communicate via Guild Council (or PM, if friends in Godville) to discuss terms of the fight (for example, a ""pure"" fight with no influence or god voices, a limit on charges, or a fight to the death). If neither party responds, or if there is a disagreement, then the default is to fight in true Harvest Moon fashion... that is, to win. No one is ever expected to throw a fight against a guild member.

Please note that announcing that you are entering arena is in no way mandatory, but done because most of us do not like beating up our fellow guildmates.

Forum Posting

Many of our members enjoy friendly banter and roleplay on our forum, and find that posting adds another dimension to the Godville experience. Additionally, we believe that keeping a fun, active thread going helps with the recruitment of new members, as the Guild's Headquarters section of the forum is one of the first places people look when joining a guild. We welcome all members, regardless of length of time in the guild and/or roleplay experience to join in the fun. You don't know if you'll like it until you try it, so come on in, the water's fine! All we ask is that you remain courteous in accordance with the Godville Forum Rules [[1]].

Recruitment Policy

Our members are encouraged to recruit new, evil aligned gods and heroes into the guild. However, experience has proven that a degree of restraint must be practiced in order to preserve a sense of honor and goodwill between the many guilds of Godville. Therefore, we now ask that our members do not make deliberate attempts to recruit members from an active guild. As a general guideline, a guild which has posted on their own thread within the last 2 weeks should be considered active. We ask that other guilds contact an officer or Blood Council member if they feel like this policy has been violated.

Guild Chronicles

The following entries listed here were events deemed noteworthy by the guild chroniclers, GodFel1dragon  and GodThirdEye0pen 

  • Day 400 g.e The noble blood god  GodChace  was granted a new power today as his mortal pawn, Jeezus, completed his temple. Jeezus placed the last brick, and began to feel something surge through his veins. His feet left the ground and he began to float, just as the moon blocked out the sun and the sky turned as red as blood. The people flocked towards Jeezus in amazement, as he shot lightning from his fingertips into the crowd of onlookers. The citizens were amazed, mystified, and terrified all at once.
  • Day 390 g.e The noble blood god  GodMakaze  was granted a new power today as his mortal pawn, Kimagure, completed the work necessary to own a temple. His back-breaking labor will now be carried out by tens of thousands of people, who graciously bowed down to the great evil, that is The Harvest Moon. This temple shall pay homage to the great, Makaze, through him, all evil things are possible.
  • Day 384  g.e The noble blood goddess  GodTiralise Elune  was granted a new power today as her mortal pawn, Evienne, finished her the work on her temple. The enormous structure of evil can be seen all over the realm. Harvest Moon threw a sacrifice for Evienne on a scale that has never-before been seen in Godville. Animals from all the world were shipped, by the thousands, to be slain in her honor.
  • Day 381 g.e The noble blood god GodZindrel  was granted a new power today, as his mortal pawn, Ashura, completed her temple. She put the last brick in place just as the moon completely blocked out the sun. A blood red shadow was cast all throughout Godville, from the capital to the forests outside of Deville. Citizens of Godville quickly dropped to their knees in terror. This day will stay etched in the memories of all, and the Harvest Moon will never be forgotten.
  • Day 378 g.e The noble blood goddess GodTiggilina  was granted a new power today as her mortal pawn, Tiggy, finished her long-awaited temple. Tiggy laid the final brick on her temple, as her friends from the Harvest Moon arrived. All of Godville could hear the festivities, the sounds of mighty beasts letting out horrible screams before their lives were cut short and offered to her. Just as the festivities were winding down, the moon changed to crimson. No one will soon forget this day, citizens of Godville refer to this day as "Tiggy's Temple Day."
  • Day 373 g.e On this day, Harvest Moon ventured deeper into the outer lands and found the citizens of Deville. When we arrived, everyone got down on their knees and prayed. Suddenly, the sun was covered by the moon. The entire sky turned red, and the citizens shuddered in fear. It appears a long-awaited prophesy of theirs was fulfilled by pur arrival, which according to legend heralds a reign of darkness under the followers of the crimson moon. The people immediately renounced their old ways and began worshipping the new, evil gods of the arriving heroes.
  • Day 359 g.e The noble blood god GodPeter C  was granted a new power today as his mortal pawn, Oski, completed his long-awaited temple. As he laid the last brick, thousands of people came to gaze at the spectacle of a huge celebration in his honor. The sacrifices were great and plentiful. As the celebrations were winding down, everyone looked up as the moon turned a shade of red never before seen. Oski stood tall in his temple as the passerby's cowered in fear.
  • Day 336 g.e The noble blood goddess GodKimDog  was granted a new power today as her mortal pawn, Roof, finished his mighty temple. Alas, Roof shall enjoy a feast of great proportions, before a sacrifice of virgin's blood and 10,000 of the biggest, most evil creatures in all of Godville. All of Godville marveled as the moon turned red as blood. Mystified at the power Roof has over the dark arts, they will not be forgetting Roof, or the Harvest Moon any time soon.
  • Day 308 g.e Today our guild declared war with the treacherous guild "Knights who say Ni". Our heroes shall hunt down their heroes like the craven filth that they are. All guild members shall undertake the sacred obligation to enact our revenge upon the Ni-Sayers, so that they learn their place in the scheme of things.
  • Day 307 g.e On this black day in our guild's history, which has come to be known as the day hospitality died, the treasonous guild "Knights who say Ni" poisoned our guild leadership after inviting them to their guildhall to discuss official business. Argoet, Hammr, Delenn, Arnost, Jaaden, Pingping and Lord Caius all fell their treachery, and had their alignments altered and their links to their gods severed. Fortunately, the Knights were not as wise as they thought and the effects were not permanent like they had planned.
  • Day 306 g.e. The noble blood god GodThirdeye0pen  was granted a new power today as his mortal pawn, Quadfather, finished his mighty temple.
