|Here is every thing you need to know about HM:|
- 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 the Godville Times doesn't always list all towns, but this site does list our influence levels in all towns)
- We are an evil guild. Everyone is welcome to join, provided they enjoy 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!
- Please friend several of our welcomers to discover how you can get the most out of your membership. Our welcomers are , , , , , , , and .
- 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!
- Harvest Moon uses a chat/messaging service called Palringo to communicate information as well as informally chat. To join us there, you’ll need to sign up using an email address (but others will not be able to see your email address by default). You’ll need to validate your email by clicking on a link Palringo sends to your email. Simply download Palringo, sign up and search for "harvest moon" to get started. However, if still confused don't hesitate to ask for help, in case you need it:
• Signup at http://www.palringo.com/ or by downloading the app for iOS, Android, Mac OS or Windows application for PC.
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...
We currently have major footholds all over this land. 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.
We fight to win.
That said, since we expect our guildmates to fight to win, many of us prefer not to match other members of Harvest Moon. That is why, in guild chat, you will often see us "announce" our intention to enter the arena. Because Godville matches you with other arena fighters based on whether you have a temple, this "announcement" will take the form of a god saying "temple owner in" or "non-temple in" or, more frequently, the abbreviations "t in" or "nt in."
Once an announcing god matches an opponent in the arena, they usually follow up by saying "matched" in guild chat to let other gods know that they can safely send their heroes. (Or, sometimes, "no match" if they time out without matching.) Since other gods sometimes forget to do this, remember that you time out after ten minutes, so if a guild member announced eleven or more minutes ago you can safely assume the arena is clear.
Bear in mind that not all guild members do this voluntary announcing; either because they fear "stalkers" (many high-ranked arena fighters are paranoid from all the blows to their head), because they are too low rank to use guild chat, or just because they don't know/care. If you match a guild member who does not announce, sometimes they will politely offer not to fight back or to do a "no influence" battle... but sometimes they won't! Either way, prepare for a fight, do your best to win, and shake hands afterwards!
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.

Legends of the Blood Moon
These "Legends" have all been with the guild since the Harvest Moon first formed in Godville. Every one of them held a major role in the forming of this guild, but have decided to take a step down from leadership. However their dedication, loyalty and contributions have earned them a spot in our hearts, minds, and the retirement home.

Our guild is proud to be home to the best and evilest members in all of Godville. Our members can be viewed at the Harvest Moon Stats Page.
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.
