The [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/1796?page=1#post_106958 '''Godville Tournament of Champions III: ''Good vs Evil'''''] begins ''tomorrow'', folks! In preparation, we thought it would be a great idea to get to know the goody-goody side of the arena. Knowing nothing about the E button ourselves, we ran to {{God|Shannonus}} to ask what it feels like:
+
Recently, the three-year anniversary of English Godville made me wonder if many knew the history of this world and the changes that have come along since Day 1 g.e.

'''The First Generation of Godville: 0 g.e. - 232 g.e''' <br>''Gods 29+ months old''
'''The Art of the Saintly Smoter'''
 
  
There are some gods out there (and I’m not going to name names, but they tend to congregate in a guild that rhymes with Narvest Noon) who think the only way to strike fear into the hearts of their foes is by going all lightning crazy and leaving giant burning craters all over Godville. Well, there’s only one way to put this—they’re wrong. Sure, it’s fun to smote with fire a bit now and again, but one awkward bounce and you’re toast. Who wants to live with that stress?
+
In the first blog update, the developers introduced the [[Pantheon of Gratitude]] as a way to show their appreciation to the players. They also introduced the informers which sparked controversy amongst the 1st Gen. Gods – so much so, in fact, that many of them overlooked the many other advancements that came after. The scars linger with some to this day.
  
I prefer to live by the old adage “She who laughs last, laughs longest.” In other words, the last hero standing wins, so you just need to not die. How? By healing like a madperson, that’s how. If you keep healing, they can’t kill you. With any luck, you’ll action lock your rival’s poor, evil self, or, alternatively, they’ll keel over from exhaustion on Step 123. Now, this works best if you’ve been practicing your benevolence ahead of time, so enter the arena as “pure good!” and you’re on your way to the pantheons.
+
By the second update, the Developers noticed the restless Gods had begun fighting in the forums so they created the ideabox in hopes of entertaining them. It did not work. The fighting increased and wars began. Perhaps it was all this fighting that inspired the Developers to gift the Gods with the ability to watch their Heroes duel in the third update.
  
Plus, remember the whole fear-striking-heart bit? Ask anyone… who really wants to meet a serial healer in the arena? Those fights take forever! Fear struck. Game, set, match.
+
The updates came quick and heavy then. Godville jumped leaps and bounds, but all was in vain for Gods didn't care about increased or new pantheons they only cared about their pride and defended it ruthlessly. This inspired the Developers to grant Gods the privilege of sending their Heroes into the arena at the Gods' own choosing. Rather than serve as a distraction from the troubles, this only fueled the wars.
</div>
 
  
Yes, it would be terribly skewed not to give the Evil perspective on this matter, so we asked none other than {{god|Marked8}} who has always stuck to his guns... and knives, and explosives...
+
The Developers thought that, perhaps, if the Gods saw their Heroes raising a pet it could teach them to love each other and be kind. The Gods only saw the bad in things by this point and, to them, these new pets – prone to eating their Hero's new special artifacts and dragging the Hero through the mud – were quite the nuisance.
  
<div style="background-color: #E3DAC9; border: 1px solid #A40000; padding: 5px; {{border-radius|16px 8px 16px 8px}}">

The great crash of 191 g.e. was a much needed time of rest for the battle weary Gods. The very next month they saw the first temple finished and the first Godville Times. Santa Claws brought an end to this generation with hard won gifts for their Heroes.
'''Kill it with FIRE!'''
 
  
You are big, you are bad, you are ready to throw down.  You rain punishment down on your opponent like there is no tomorrow inflicting massive damage...
+
'''Great Gods of the First Generation'''
  
Until: rainbows... lights... fairies... and your opponent has regained most of their health.
+
God: {{god|Godville}} <br>Hero: '''Godville's Admin''' <br>Age: ~ 39 m.
 +
* The god in controll of the Holy Random.
  
Serial encouragers are a scourge, but there are many people willing to hit encourage after encourage in an effort to keep their hero alive to compensate for poor arena skills.
+
God: {{god|Godzillla}} <br>Hero: '''Sampsalot''' <br>Age: ~ 34 m
 +
* The first temple owner of godville.
  
So what is the downside you ask? Serial encouragers risk several things. For one, just using encourage will change your alignment quickly if you are in the evil spectrum. You run the risk that your opponent will action lock you to fight back and your battle can become a long dragged out voice command only fight. An opponent punishing you will also generally take away more HP than the encourage gives back while doing nothing to the opponent but causing aggravation, and you risk a backfire that will give your opponent more HP. There are alternatives to the encourage such as the “heal” command, so do not be afraid to use it.
+
God: {{god|Spode}} <br>Hero: '''Hrun''' <br>Age: ~ 34 m
 +
* The reason we all have a wiki to enjoy!
  
I would only use the encourage command if imminent defeat is headed your way.
+
And, last but certainly not least, my personal two favorite 1st Gen HMers: {{god|Syrocko}} and {{god|Ulvolose}}, about 35 and 34 m old respectively.
</div>
 
  
There you have it! Encourage in a nut shell... err, two nut shells... as seen by two nuts? Just kidding! Kinda. Hope this helps you as you track the fights between Good, Evil, Neutral and the random Chaos players in the ToC! You can follow the [http://damdai.com/tonamento/tournaments/4741/toc-iii-good-v-evil brackets], pop into the [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/1796 ToC forum] in the Main Square for duel logs, hang out at the [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/1150 Lucky God Casino] and bet on your favorites (tell them the HMWH sent ya and they’ll set you up with 25 chips to start your new-found gambling habit!), or visit with the fighters and fight fans in the [godville tournament of champions] group on [http://www.palringo.com/ Palringo]. Enjoy the fights! We know we will!

Read every post from these five gods and you'll have a new respect for war and arena. As they might say, we have no idea how good we have it now.

 +
 
 +
It's almost summertime, Harvest Moon! And, contrary to what many of us fear, being evil does not cause us to shrivel up and die in the sunlight. So climb out of the dungeon, throw off the dark capes, and let's have a good old-fashioned back yard cook out behind the guild hall!
 +
 
 +
* Iced Dark Flame and "special" koolaid are great ice breakers and will help everyone get in the mood for some fun in the sun.
 +
 
 +
* Fire up the barbecue for kitten kabobs, bunny burgers and actual hot dogs!
 +
 
 +
* Beans, potato salad, beans, beans, chips (puppy, potato, cow) and beans make great side dishes and will come in handy later.
  
''Long time reader, first time writer - I just love your column! Your advice is always so dependable. This may be a bit outside your field of expertise, but... My mother-in-law will be visiting this summer and she always turns my kids into a couple of goody-goodie brats in less than 72 hours. If I wanted them to “clean” their room, I’d tell them to! And NO, we don’t like walnuts in our banana bread! We don’t even like banana bread! A penguin smoothie for breakfast, kitty sammich for lunch, and a sensible dinner, thank you very much. To top it all off, her beloved son will be going on a boss-monster hunt with his buddies right before she arrives, so I’ll be home alone with her for TWO DAYS!! I’m just horrified. Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated.''
+
* Flaming s'mores make an impressive dessert. Who needs eyebrows, anyway?
  
''Signed, can I consider my monster-in-law a boss monster?''
+
After dinner, it's time for lawn games! Some of my favorites:
  
Dearest, Of course you can!!
+
* Unicorns make great lawn darts! Oops - poke someone's eye out? Dr. Frank will be passing out free eye patches!
  
So sorry, our beloved leader is out this week, but I saw your letter and knew it had to be answered quickly so you’re stuck with me! Never fear! The answer to your problems is right here! Sure, it takes a little longer to prepare your mother-in-law than the average side of Heromnivore, what with the jewelry and perfume you have to get rid of before processing, but I guarantee you a more tender, more flavorful dinner in the long run. And, yes, your husband may miss his momma, but at least this way she can always be a part of him! Besides, let’s face it, sister: we all know he’s not bringing home dinner from his “hunting trip” so you may as well have a hearty meal on the table when he arrives.
+
* Dust bunny badminton is always fun, and it's a great way to get rid of the little blighters.
  
'''You’ll need:'''
+
* Bring out your heroes and shovels for a real game of Whack-a-Mole! After a few Dark Flames, this often escalates into Whack-a-Hero, guaranteed fun for (almost) all!
* 1 1/2 pounds ground … meat
 
* 1 egg
 
* 1 onion, chopped
 
* 1 cup milk
 
* 1 cup dried bread or cracker crumbs
 
* salt and pepper to taste
 
* 2 tablespoons brown sugar
 
* 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
 
* 1/3 cup ketchup
 
  
'''Directions:'''
+
* Time for the three-legged race! Draw straws with your partner to see which one of you loses a leg. Sponsored by Dr. Frank, who's always looking for spare parts.
# Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
 
# In a large bowl, combine meat, egg, onion, milk and bread (or cracker) crumbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste and place in a lightly greased 5x9 inch loaf pan, or form into a loaf and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish.
 
# In a separate small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard and ketchup. Mix well and pour over the meatloaf.
 
# Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour.
 
<sub>Serves: 8</sub>
 
  
Obviously, you’ll have more than 1.5 pounds of meat, but this recipe is easy to halve or to double if you’re thinking about bringing a main dish to the next block party. If the kids get sick of meatloaf, feel free to stop by the [[Harvest Moon]] kitchen for more recipes! Happy hunting!
+
* After the sun goes down, it's time for some fireworks - to the pup-a-pult! Setting the puppies ablaze first is sure to bring some ooohs and aaahs from the crowd.
  
Yours, Dr. Frank
+
* At last it's time to wind down and relax in the blood bath hot tub! See? I told you all those beans would come in handy. Instant jacuzzi!

* {{color|maroon||'''A:''' Usually, it's in self defense. I'm actually very peaceful compared to many other monsters, but most of the heroes I fight are hurrying to find a Level Boss and defeat it, and being a Level Boss, I obviously don't want them to do that.

The Generations of Godville

1) You youngsters have no idea how good you've got it! 2) Stay off of my lawn!
The 1st Generation
By: GodHairplug4men 

Recently, the three-year anniversary of English Godville made me wonder if many knew the history of this world and the changes that have come along since Day 1 g.e.

The First Generation of Godville: 0 g.e. - 232 g.e
Gods 29+ months old

In the first blog update, the developers introduced the Pantheon of Gratitude as a way to show their appreciation to the players. They also introduced the informers which sparked controversy amongst the 1st Gen. Gods – so much so, in fact, that many of them overlooked the many other advancements that came after. The scars linger with some to this day.

By the second update, the Developers noticed the restless Gods had begun fighting in the forums so they created the ideabox in hopes of entertaining them. It did not work. The fighting increased and wars began. Perhaps it was all this fighting that inspired the Developers to gift the Gods with the ability to watch their Heroes duel in the third update.

The updates came quick and heavy then. Godville jumped leaps and bounds, but all was in vain for Gods didn't care about increased or new pantheons they only cared about their pride and defended it ruthlessly. This inspired the Developers to grant Gods the privilege of sending their Heroes into the arena at the Gods' own choosing. Rather than serve as a distraction from the troubles, this only fueled the wars.

The Developers thought that, perhaps, if the Gods saw their Heroes raising a pet it could teach them to love each other and be kind. The Gods only saw the bad in things by this point and, to them, these new pets – prone to eating their Hero's new special artifacts and dragging the Hero through the mud – were quite the nuisance.

The great crash of 191 g.e. was a much needed time of rest for the battle weary Gods. The very next month they saw the first temple finished and the first Godville Times. Santa Claws brought an end to this generation with hard won gifts for their Heroes.

Great Gods of the First Generation

God: GodGodville 
Hero: Godville's Admin
Age: ~ 39 m.

  • The god in controll of the Holy Random.

God: GodGodzillla 
Hero: Sampsalot
Age: ~ 34 m

  • The first temple owner of godville.

God: GodSpode 
Hero: Hrun
Age: ~ 34 m

  • The reason we all have a wiki to enjoy!

And, last but certainly not least, my personal two favorite 1st Gen HMers: GodSyrocko  and GodUlvolose , about 35 and 34 m old respectively.

Read every post from these five gods and you'll have a new respect for war and arena. As they might say, we have no idea how good we have it now.

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!

It's almost summertime, Harvest Moon! And, contrary to what many of us fear, being evil does not cause us to shrivel up and die in the sunlight. So climb out of the dungeon, throw off the dark capes, and let's have a good old-fashioned back yard cook out behind the guild hall!

  • Iced Dark Flame and "special" koolaid are great ice breakers and will help everyone get in the mood for some fun in the sun.
  • Fire up the barbecue for kitten kabobs, bunny burgers and actual hot dogs!
  • Beans, potato salad, beans, beans, chips (puppy, potato, cow) and beans make great side dishes and will come in handy later.
  • Flaming s'mores make an impressive dessert. Who needs eyebrows, anyway?

After dinner, it's time for lawn games! Some of my favorites:

  • Unicorns make great lawn darts! Oops - poke someone's eye out? Dr. Frank will be passing out free eye patches!
  • Dust bunny badminton is always fun, and it's a great way to get rid of the little blighters.
  • Bring out your heroes and shovels for a real game of Whack-a-Mole! After a few Dark Flames, this often escalates into Whack-a-Hero, guaranteed fun for (almost) all!
  • Time for the three-legged race! Draw straws with your partner to see which one of you loses a leg. Sponsored by Dr. Frank, who's always looking for spare parts.
  • After the sun goes down, it's time for some fireworks - to the pup-a-pult! Setting the puppies ablaze first is sure to bring some ooohs and aaahs from the crowd.
  • At last it's time to wind down and relax in the blood bath hot tub! See? I told you all those beans would come in handy. Instant jacuzzi!

Fun with Fiends

It’s nothing personal... but you might want to run anyway.
Here we sit down periodically with a common opponent (a.k.a. a Godville monster) and find out what’s behind the mask. This week’s fiend is: Level Boss.
  • Q: Why do you fight heroes?
  • A: Usually, it's in self defense. I'm actually very peaceful compared to many other monsters, but most of the heroes I fight are hurrying to find a Level Boss and defeat it, and being a Level Boss, I obviously don't want them to do that. No one wants to be defeated, so I think the heroes should just beat it.
  • Q: How did you become boss of the level?
  • A: Well, it's mostly thanks to my relative peacefulness and my ability to crack the skulls of monsters who oppose me.
  • Q: What is your favorite bar/tavern/etc.?
  • A: "Down and Out", in Bumchester. The name is like the direction I often want to go during hero ambushes, but as I'm not a mole, I have much lower digging capacity than my fellow bosses underground.
  • Q: Which other monster in Godville do you dislike the most, and why?
  • A: That would be the Evil Giraffe, because it's so evil. It doesn't even stop to think twice about what it's doing; it just malevolently attacks anything that doesn't look like it. I think monsters should live in peace with heroes, not in pieces.
  • Q: What kind of hero do you prefer for dinner?
  • A: Dinner? DINNER?! Haven't you heard anything of what I just said? We should live in peace! That said, I prefer those who taste like omelet.

...at this point our interviewer (sadly) admitted his love of omelets and mentioned he’d had one for breakfast. If the screams coming from the interview room after that were any indication... Let’s just say we hope to have a new hire for this feature by next week. If you have a burning question for a Godville monster, or a particular monster you’d like to know more about, submit your questions or ideas to the HMWH staff. Thank you.

The Writers’ Coroner

Where Creativity gets disembodied.
Lightening Strikes
Goddess of fire, God of rain
Digging and fighting down the path
Traveling to and fro is quite a drain,
Learning and growing but no good at math.
Divine energy sweeps over the night,
Thunder and lightening rattle the clouds
Is it hero's time to fight?
The God voices are way too loud!
To the arena they go strong,
I just hope that god voice wasn't wrong!
Written by: Miss SixthSatan
