Last week we discussed the “All GV can BE” 3rd Generation. Today, in celebration of the 4th of July, we celebrate the 4th Gen...
  
'''The Third Generation of Godville: 462 g.e. - 694 g.e''' <br>Gods 14-22 months old
+
“The Soiled Generation”... Wait I said ''spoiled'' before? Well that's going to change the direction I was going in.
  
As a first generation god, {{god|Ulvolose}} said [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/546?page=121#post_110751 “As for us Belteshazzar, I think we’re now officially old. Though I dare say we are not, yet, quite washed up.”]
+
'''The Fourth Generation of Godville: 694 g.e. - 925 g.e''' <br>Gods 8-15 months old
  
The wars were ancient history and the 2nd generation was busy breaking records, but a whole new generation of gods wanted more out of their “zero player game” experience. The developers added new activatable artifacts and the Enhancement Room by late December but could not seem to keep up with the thirst for excitement that these new gods craved. The old gods, on the other hand, could! 1st Gen gods found a new role for themselves in helping to educate the young skulls full of mush in the ways of Godville.
+
Many will remember [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/546?page=125#post_114342 the great PEZ incident] in the HM forum that kicked off this generation, which would officially be the final hardship of anyone who ever played this game.  
  
New guilds were created around the idea of special events, or gimmicks like...
+
Quests became shorter, mini-boss monsters were introduced but were of little threat. The pantheons started letting anyone in and the devs even created “construction” to give all a chance to be number one at something with little effort. Epic quests came that gave the chance for everybody to gain enough money to resurrect a lvl 30 pet, and then, to spoil these new gods even more, the developers no longer killed our pets, merely knocked them out.
  
* [[Skeatseria Lodge]] was ''founded 9-14-2011'' with it's pantheons celebrating the most spent on booze.
+
Getting sick of being called soft, the developers introduced the retirement fund. Although it seems unattainable to everyone at first – third generation gods wondered why they couldn't have been saving all along...  
* [[Open Bar]] was ''founded 10-2-11'' as more of a nightclub than a guild, a social hangout for all breeds of god.
 
* [[sowing Sun]] was ''founded 11-14-11'' and with a new play each week, they became the place for date night for the dateless.
 
* [[Gamer’s Guild]] was ''founded 3-25-12'' and did their first, highly loved, murder mystery a fun role play adventure.
 
  
Even old guilds wanted to get in the fun. [[Harvest Moon]] started the “1st GV Gladiator Open” which began 10/3/11 and was the inspiration to all the great tournaments to follow! The winner was {{god|Fist of Fury}} and his hero Afrobenny.
+
Later in the 3rd gen, new twists on digging produced a new way to get extra gold with boss monsters where some gods didn't even have to try to get rewarded for “winning”. The developers were lucky in one sense: many gods by this point loved the game so much they wanted to experience it again with all the new additions to the game. This leads into next weeks article: Generation 5 - The Altocalypse!
  
[[Wiki Leagues]] had their first “Interspecies Mud Wrestling Tournament” on 3/23/12. Winner: {{god|King of Popstar}} and his hero Mighty Kirby.
+

''Needless to say, we City Watch cops go through a lot of handcuffs. What’s your favorite type and can you get us a bulk discount?''

Happy Fourth of July, dear readers! I hope everyone in the U.S. has a wonderful time! However, one of us is in danger of ruining his celebration. But no worries - it's Bella to the rescue!

''Dear Bella Stewart, I invited all my friends and family over for a Fourth of July picnic... But I forgot to buy fireworks! Are there any evil ways I can salvage this event?''
  
Your question is pure poetry, and I’m ''so'' glad you came to me with this. I know there have been times when the … legalities of my … business have come into question, and I’m very thankful you’ve been willing to let bygones be bygones <s>and that I’ve since learned to disguise my activities</s> but, anyway, here we are and oh, boy, do I have an answer!!
+
''Signed, Fizzled.''
  
The standard brands in favor are: ASP, Smith & Wesson, Peerless and Hiats. I used to say Peerless, but since they discontinued the 301s (unless you can find them on gvBay, you’ll be stuck with the 801s) and they’ve been plagued with recalls, I’d avoid them. If you’re concerned about the comfort of your <s>victims</s> umm... perps? I’ll run with that. If you’re concerned with the comfort of your perps, you’ll want double locking cuffs so they don’t tighten too much on the wrists <s>or ankles</s>. My favorite double-locking cuffs are the S&W, but I know others who really prefer the ASP. For all-purpose, fits any perp with no fuss and no muss, go with the Hiats “big guy” cuffs. Mmmmm... Love those big guys! I’m speaking of the cuffs, of course. Not to confuse things further, but you really should look into getting a set of the Clejuso brand cuffs, leg irons, and security belt for those... special occasions. The pieces work seamlessly with each other, they have a variety of cuff types, and they’re really pretty, too! Pricy, but well worth it!
+
Dear Fizzled,  
  
Sadly, I cannot get you a discount on any of these cuffs, but perhaps if we went in on an order together, we could get a bulk rate?
+
I'm sure with a bit of imagination, we can save the evening and you can instill Oohs and Aahs in all your guests!
  
Yours,

* Start off small by serving flaming Dark Flame. Be sure to dilute it by 50% with water, as it's extremely combustible, and you don't want to singe your guests' hair and eyebrows off. At least, not yet...
 
+
* Little ones love sparklers. For one night, throw caution to the wind and let your budding evil gods and goddesses shoot sparks from their fingertips. You can always repair the damage tomorrow. But read on - you may not have to.
Dr. Frank
+
* Next, to the pup-a-pult! Simply dunk the puppies in a vat of Dark Flame and torch them before flinging for a spectacular night sky show.
 +
* For a grand finale that's sure to please (at least until everyone's hair and eyebrows catch fire), fill your fountain with undiluted Dark Flame, gather your guests all around it, and light it while your evil guests shoot lightning bolts into the sky. No matter that everyone will be angry about being cindered. You'll have to move tomorrow anyway, as nothing will be left after the fountain blows. Trust me, your party will be talked about for some time to come!

You know what I miss? The good ol' days, when you could go outside around the 4th of July, and you were guaranteed to see some middle-aged gentlemen wearing absurd outfits to entertain people. A true staple of freedom and patriotism. I'm talking about the barbershop quartet.
 
 
 
This was a more simple time, when you could point out the dorks in a crowd if you were strapped to a rocket and launched a mile into the air. Easy pickin's. The ones wearing the tweed hats and tweed jackets, tweed pants and even briefs I bet. A time when America's freedom was at its best.
 
 
 
Barbershop quartets are very much a symbol of democracy. Because if they'd happened in a dictatorship, they'd all been dragged outside and tossed in an icy lake. While wearing matching cement shoes. Only in a free country could such a reversal of atrocities occur.
 
  
Subjecting folks to their singing, these quartets were the original gangs. It's a little known fact that such infamous people as the Jesse James gang, Al Capone's syndicate and the Olsen twins all started out as barbershop quartets. I mean to tell you, slaying people with cheesy numbers and waxed mustaches only paved the way for the brutality they would inflict on the country in later years.
+
'''Breaking News:''' The promised “special retrospective interview with one of history's famous royalty” has been postponed due to an unfortunate firecracker incident.
  
What may surprise you is that some people (much like those who idolize Jesse James and Al Capone) still think of these quartets as something to be admired. What won't surprise you is that the majority of the audience won't reciprocate these feelings. They can't seem to admit it or voice their sentiments, and therefore encourage such crimes against the state to carry on every summer.
+
'''Public Service Announcement:''' Firecrackers and goats do ''not'' mix.
 
 
So let me help you out, by being the first to stand up and defend our earholes. Grab your metaphorical hooked canes, and yank these dingleberries off the stage.
 
 
 
''If you were bothered by anything you've read in this article, that probably means you're in a barbershop quartet or know someone that is. Well, let me soften the blow for you by saying that I'm not singling out these groups. I now loathe you, as well. Get off the stage!''

The Generations of Godville

Spoiled rotten... and loving it!
The 4th Generation
By: GodHairplug4men 

Last week we discussed the “All GV can BE” 3rd Generation. Today, in celebration of the 4th of July, we celebrate the 4th Gen...

“The Soiled Generation”... Wait I said spoiled before? Well that's going to change the direction I was going in.

The Fourth Generation of Godville: 694 g.e. - 925 g.e
Gods 8-15 months old

Many will remember the great PEZ incident in the HM forum that kicked off this generation, which would officially be the final hardship of anyone who ever played this game.

Quests became shorter, mini-boss monsters were introduced but were of little threat. The pantheons started letting anyone in and the devs even created “construction” to give all a chance to be number one at something with little effort. Epic quests came that gave the chance for everybody to gain enough money to resurrect a lvl 30 pet, and then, to spoil these new gods even more, the developers no longer killed our pets, merely knocked them out.

Getting sick of being called soft, the developers introduced the retirement fund. Although it seems unattainable to everyone at first – third generation gods wondered why they couldn't have been saving all along...

Later in the 3rd gen, new twists on digging produced a new way to get extra gold with boss monsters where some gods didn't even have to try to get rewarded for “winning”. The developers were lucky in one sense: many gods by this point loved the game so much they wanted to experience it again with all the new additions to the game. This leads into next weeks article: Generation 5 - The Altocalypse!

Third Generation Events:

  • Spoiled kids complaining about their heroes having wings...

7/17/12 Icarus wings thread

  • Halloween of 2012 the, very first, unedited version of the Weekly Harvest debuted!

Great gods of the fourth generation:

  • GodSourceRunner  - 14 months old - A universal ally to all!
  • GodJimbob64  - 12 months old - Unofficial greater in the forums and all around nice-guy.
  • GodLady Shadows  - 11 months old - A natural-born leader and enthusiastic player.
  • GodNever More  - 10 months old - A forum-active little sprite who, if you're not careful, will snatch all your booty.
  • GodGodofbeer  - 8 months old - We were all atheist beer drinkers till this man came along.

Favorite HM 4th gen gods:

  • GodDomerthos  - 9 months old - and already hosting the HM NIT!

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!

Happy Fourth of July, dear readers! I hope everyone in the U.S. has a wonderful time! However, one of us is in danger of ruining his celebration. But no worries - it's Bella to the rescue!

Dear Bella Stewart, I invited all my friends and family over for a Fourth of July picnic... But I forgot to buy fireworks! Are there any evil ways I can salvage this event?

Signed, Fizzled.

Dear Fizzled,

I'm sure with a bit of imagination, we can save the evening and you can instill Oohs and Aahs in all your guests!

  • Start off small by serving flaming Dark Flame. Be sure to dilute it by 50% with water, as it's extremely combustible, and you don't want to singe your guests' hair and eyebrows off. At least, not yet...
  • Little ones love sparklers. For one night, throw caution to the wind and let your budding evil gods and goddesses shoot sparks from their fingertips. You can always repair the damage tomorrow. But read on - you may not have to.
  • Next, to the pup-a-pult! Simply dunk the puppies in a vat of Dark Flame and torch them before flinging for a spectacular night sky show.
  • For a grand finale that's sure to please (at least until everyone's hair and eyebrows catch fire), fill your fountain with undiluted Dark Flame, gather your guests all around it, and light it while your evil guests shoot lightning bolts into the sky. No matter that everyone will be angry about being cindered. You'll have to move tomorrow anyway, as nothing will be left after the fountain blows. Trust me, your party will be talked about for some time to come!

Fun with Fiends

We always thought he was smarter than this...
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: Philosoraptor.
  • Q: Why do you fight heroes?
  • A: Heroes fight... monsters, but when a h...ero fights a hero, which one... is the mo...nster?
  • Q: Eh... I don't think you answered my question. And you sound a bit slurry... Anyway; what is your favorite bar/tavern/etc.?
  • A: If what... I dr...ank? ...has been drunk, why am I dr...unk? ...now?
  • Q: I'm sorry? Are you drunk, mister Raptor?
  • A: Me, dr...unk? No! If I'm dru...nk... then Mordor?
  • Q: I think I may have to end this interview early... Do you have anything more to add?
  • A: If the next Pin...occhio said frozen... reactivated how shorter?
  • Q: What?
  • A: unintelligible slurring

Our interviewer was about to quit after the last few weeks of peril but agreed to stay on for one more week after the Philosoraptor passed out in a puddle of drool. 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.

Hidden Shadows Riddles

When is a door not a door?
How to play:
  1. Each week, a riddle will be posted in here (and only here) in The Weekly Harvest.
  2. To try to solve the riddle, post your answer on Hidden Shadows guild forum.
  3. Do not worry about the previous posts before you. If your answer is not listed yet, post it!
  4. You are given three tries. Once you’ve guessed three times, you will be unable to guess again.
  5. If the riddle is still unanswered two days before the next riddle is posted, anyone will be allowed to guess regardless of number of previous guesses.
  6. Answer will be posted the day of the new riddle should nobody figure out the answer.
  7. Winner will get a spot in sowing Sun’s Sunday sock puppet play.
  8. Play again next week to see if you can win!

This Week’s Riddle:

I have wings. I move, spin but cannot fly. I never laugh, sing or cry. The same place you’ll find me always around. Free to do my way with little sound. What am I?

Good luck!

The Weekly Harvest Quiz

How to play:

  • Each week, there will be four “questions” posted here (and only here) in the Weekly Harvest. Answers to the questions can be found in the wiki, on the HM web site, in the forums or will be math/logic-based.
  • Your “answers” must be in question form (a-la Jeopardy!).
  • Answers must be submitted via the Harvest Moon Forum. Answers only, please! Don’t give away the questions to non-WH readers.
  • The first god/dess to get all four questions right will win four (4) charges and be automatically entered to play in the Over the Moon Championship, held monthly on Palringo (yes, you’ll need to join Pal to play).
  • The winner of the OtM Championship (to be based on a different game show each month) will receive 45 charges!!

This week’s Answers:

  1. This is the first event to occur in the following:
    * the Republic of Ireland declared independence
    * creation of the United States Army
    * crowning of Pope Pius VII
    * founding of the United States
  2. Bob invites 20 people to his 4th of July bbq at his home in Philadelphia, the historic town where the Declaration of Independence was signed. Each friend invites three other friends. 1/2 of the guests bring a beverage, 1/3 of the guests bring a dessert, and the rest bring one firework each. This is the number of fireworks set off.
  3. This bacon first appeared in Philadelphia in July.
  4. These are the flags that these entities represent.
