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.  
+
The developers were busy beavers in this generation, working hard to debut the new Android app and the ability to combine artifacts before their third birthday came up. They kindly rewarded all of us with thirty charges on the game’s birthday, confirming a tradition that now makes non-payers look forward to their 4th birthday. They also took a page from the Weekly Harvest and added games to their paper with the crossword puzzle but they lost credibility when they hired the scam-artist astrologist.
  
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.
+
While all this was going on, Alternate accounts were growing at a rapid rate, surpassing numbers imaginable by most players. The prophecies of mottos of old like “Everyone's an alt” were coming true. Guilds were even formed around them with their own missions and roles in Godville.
  
Getting sick of being called soft, the developers introduced the retirement fund. Although it seems unattainable to everyone at first fourth generation gods wondered why they couldn't have been saving all along...  
+
[[₳ltoholics ₳nonymous]] Founded Dec. 18th. This guild built a coalition of pet rescuers who refuse to let any pet get dead anywhere in Godville.
  
Later in the 4th 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!

'''Great gods of the fourth generation:'''
+
Although fewer active original gods were being created than alts, it seemed, some important members of this generation to get to know are:
  
* {{god|SourceRunner}} - 14 months old - A universal ally to all!
+
* {{god|The Only Good God}} – 6 months old. Expect great things from this god who's full of creativity.
* {{god|Jimbob64}} - 12 months old - Unofficial greater in the forums and all around nice-guy.
+
* {{god|Dragolord}} – 5 months old. Only once has he been seen to not be “out”.
* {{god|Lady Shadows}} - 11 months old - A natural-born leader and enthusiastic player.
+
* {{god|Katie Scarlett}} – 5 months old. Another ambitious newcomer goddess who can't be friended enough. Her main may be older, but she made her “public debut”, in true debutante fashion, in the 5th Gen.
* {{god|Never More}} - 10 months old - A forum-active little sprite who, if you're not careful, will snatch all your booty.
 
* {{god|Godofbeer}} - 8 months old - We were all atheist beer drinkers till this man came along.
 
  
'''Favorite HM 4th gen gods:'''
+
'''Favorite HM 5th gen gods:'''
  
* {{god|Domerthos}} - 9 months old - and already hosting the HM NIT!
+
* {{god|Rosalind Vivian}} – 1 month old. A fun, smart aleck, pure-bred HMer if I’ve ever smelt one.
 +
* {{god|NASCAR Fanatic}} – 2 months old. A speed freak with great plans for the HM grounds.
 +
 
 +
We are now living in the 6th generation of Godville and it is up to all of us to determine what it will be. I’ve made my predictions for the future, but if we all continue to make this game fun for ourselves and each other, the future will be bright.
 +

''Special thanks to {{god|Elementarion}} and {{god|Lady Shadows}} for their help in researching this series of articles. I couldn’t have done it without you two!''

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!
+
It's summertime again in Godville, and I don't know about you, but I've been sweltering. Here are some of my favorite ways to cool off:
 
 
''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...
+
* Hang out in Dr. Frank-n-furter's laboratory. It's deep in the dungeon, so it stays naturally cool. Plus, you can run around in your underwear and no one will raise an eyebrow. Just make sure you decline, politely but firmly, if he offers to have you for dinner.
* 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.
+
* Beat the heat with one of those snow-producing Punishes. So what if your hero complains that ice shards would have been better. Zap his whiny little butt as you relax in your snowbank.
* 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.
+
* Once again, to the pup-a-pult! Flinging ice-water balloons is sure to help your neighbors keep their cool. No, it's not as fun as catapulting canines, but the frozen puppies just resulted in a lot of unconscious bodies and ugly lawsuits.
* 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!
+
* Treat yourself to the newest drink sensation, the Last Resort Iced Tea! Simply dunk a teabag in a glass of chilled '''Dark Flame'''. It tastes awful, but after three of them, you won't care. About anything. At all.
 +
* Throw a moat party! A dip in the moat is sure to cool everyone off, and it's a great excuse to throw a party. Serve penguin smoothie daiquiris, Last Resort Iced Teas, pupsicles, and kitty krunch ice cream. Just be sure to skim off the floating body parts, and mind the Cracked Kraken.
 +
* Try out the summer special at the Harvest Moon Day Spa - a Bloody Mary bath! Similar to the standard Bloodbath, but chilled with worcestershire sauce and tabasco. Makes you tingly all over!
 +
* Hang out with me, Bella Stewart! Not only are you guaranteed to have a Fabulass© time, but some of my natural coolness is bound to rub off on you.

'''''Note:''' Our regular interviewer has, inspired by the Philosoraptor interviewed last week, gotten too drunk on '''Dark Flame''' this week to make any sensible questions.

* {{color|maroon||'''A:''' You'll have to ask one. There's one working by the register at Mon-Mart. That mole-dug veggie is way too forward - he tried to deny me my right as a customer to buy meat. If I ever find out who his boss is I'll have him fired.}}

The Generations of Godville

I feel like I've met you before...
The 5th Generation
By: GodHairplug4men 

Last week we discussed the “Spoiled rotten stinking good for nothing worthless.... oh, um... I mean the 4th Generation. Today we’ll take a look at the “altocalypse” or “Altageddon, Altalysm” or...

“The Altolution”

The Fifth Generation of Godville: 925 g.e. - 1155 g.e
Gods 3 days-7 months old

The developers were busy beavers in this generation, working hard to debut the new Android app and the ability to combine artifacts before their third birthday came up. They kindly rewarded all of us with thirty charges on the game’s birthday, confirming a tradition that now makes non-payers look forward to their 4th birthday. They also took a page from the Weekly Harvest and added games to their paper with the crossword puzzle but they lost credibility when they hired the scam-artist astrologist.

While all this was going on, Alternate accounts were growing at a rapid rate, surpassing numbers imaginable by most players. The prophecies of mottos of old like “Everyone's an alt” were coming true. Guilds were even formed around them with their own missions and roles in Godville.

₳ltoholics ₳nonymous – Founded Dec. 18th. This guild built a coalition of pet rescuers who refuse to let any pet get dead anywhere in Godville.

Another Guild – Founded in Dec. Serves it's purpose as a last refuge for alts where they would be safe from any responsibilities.

The Glorious Guild of Gorgeous George – Founded March 11th. This guild finally gave the proud, few Gorgeous people of Godville a place to avoid the rest of us ugly, disgusting souls.

And least but not last, well last, too, but still... The Order of the Pizza. No one knows anything about this guild except for one, lonely alt, who has plead the 5th slice.

Although fewer active original gods were being created than alts, it seemed, some important members of this generation to get to know are:

  • GodThe Only Good God  – 6 months old. Expect great things from this god who's full of creativity.
  • GodDragolord  – 5 months old. Only once has he been seen to not be “out”.
  • GodKatie Scarlett  – 5 months old. Another ambitious newcomer goddess who can't be friended enough. Her main may be older, but she made her “public debut”, in true debutante fashion, in the 5th Gen.

Favorite HM 5th gen gods:

  • GodRosalind Vivian  – 1 month old. A fun, smart aleck, pure-bred HMer if I’ve ever smelt one.
  • GodNASCAR Fanatic  – 2 months old. A speed freak with great plans for the HM grounds.

We are now living in the 6th generation of Godville and it is up to all of us to determine what it will be. I’ve made my predictions for the future, but if we all continue to make this game fun for ourselves and each other, the future will be bright.

Special thanks to GodElementarion  and GodLady Shadows  for their help in researching this series of articles. I couldn’t have done it without you two!

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 summertime again in Godville, and I don't know about you, but I've been sweltering. Here are some of my favorite ways to cool off:

  • Hang out in Dr. Frank-n-furter's laboratory. It's deep in the dungeon, so it stays naturally cool. Plus, you can run around in your underwear and no one will raise an eyebrow. Just make sure you decline, politely but firmly, if he offers to have you for dinner.
  • Beat the heat with one of those snow-producing Punishes. So what if your hero complains that ice shards would have been better. Zap his whiny little butt as you relax in your snowbank.
  • Once again, to the pup-a-pult! Flinging ice-water balloons is sure to help your neighbors keep their cool. No, it's not as fun as catapulting canines, but the frozen puppies just resulted in a lot of unconscious bodies and ugly lawsuits.
  • Treat yourself to the newest drink sensation, the Last Resort Iced Tea! Simply dunk a teabag in a glass of chilled Dark Flame. It tastes awful, but after three of them, you won't care. About anything. At all.
  • Throw a moat party! A dip in the moat is sure to cool everyone off, and it's a great excuse to throw a party. Serve penguin smoothie daiquiris, Last Resort Iced Teas, pupsicles, and kitty krunch ice cream. Just be sure to skim off the floating body parts, and mind the Cracked Kraken.
  • Try out the summer special at the Harvest Moon Day Spa - a Bloody Mary bath! Similar to the standard Bloodbath, but chilled with worcestershire sauce and tabasco. Makes you tingly all over!
  • Hang out with me, Bella Stewart! Not only are you guaranteed to have a Fabulass© time, but some of my natural coolness is bound to rub off on you.

Fun with Fiends

Snarky McCrankypants at your service!
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: Disgruntled Customer.

Note: Our regular interviewer has, inspired by the Philosoraptor interviewed last week, gotten too drunk on Dark Flame this week to make any sensible questions. However, the Philosoraptor has sobered up since then, and will be asking the questions for this edition of the Weekly Harvest. Please bear with us as we attempt to remove the barrel of Dark Flame from the interviewer's clutches.

  • Q: If Pinocchio said his nose would grow, would it?
  • A: What? Pinocchio? I knew I paid too much for that wooden liar.
  • Q: If time gets frozen and then reactivated, for how long was it frozen?
  • A: I prefer pre-cooked. I bought some meat labelled pre-cooked two days ago at Mon-Mart, but it was raw! Mon-Mart needs to begin correctly labeling their meat.
  • Q: Is a rivalry between two Vegetarian Cannibals still called a beef?
  • A: You'll have to ask one. There's one working by the register at Mon-Mart. That mole-dug veggie is way too forward - he tried to deny me my right as a customer to buy meat. If I ever find out who his boss is I'll have him fired.
  • Q: What happens if a doctor eats an apple?
  • A: Don't speak to me about apples! The last twenty apples I've bought on Mon-Mart were all rotten! Every. Single. One.
  • Q: What would you do if all your friends told you not to give in to peer pressure?
  • A: I don't know, and I don't care. I'm out of here to go return this so-called fish. Bah, "babel fish", they said. This is salmon! I'm so gonna get that register Cannibal fired...

We do hope our regular interviewer will be back 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.

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 lie waiting, in a rotating room with players who look just like me. We play a game of life and death which none of us can see. We have no skills, except to be fast. Because, in this game, he who hits first is he who hits last.

Good luck!

  • Q: How did you choose HM?
  • A: My hero chose Harvest Moon for me, by leading me down the "right" path. Some random voice about Harvest Moon was heard. I thought, why not? :)
  • Q: Where does your hero hide his coin purse?
  • A: My hero is very naughty with his coin purse because he leaves it in a knot of a tree.
  • Q: Name somethings that you and your hero have in common.
  • A: It is so creepy, because I was talking to my GV friend and we wondered if our heroes knew what we were thinking; I read my hero's diary and he said, “I wonder what my goddess is thinking.” So, clearly, my hero and I are both psychic. Also, we are both ADHD and lucky has heck. Many of my arena battles were won by luck. I blame the luck of the moon. :)
  • Q: What advice would you give a newer player?
  • A: Always ask the questions you don't have the answer to. Opportunities will come and the game could be more entertaining. :)
  • Q: What toppings do you like on your kitten sammiches?
  • A: I would like some nyan cat on my sammich. :)
  • Q: Where would your hero go on his first date...assuming he ever gets one?
  • A: My hero did ask me (his goddess) on a date. Not going to happen. I think my slightly insane, adventurous hero would go to Unspecifiedistan for a date. :)

Therefore, he decides to start paying down the debt on July 4th, 2015. He will then give Idgie Threadgoode one sammich per day until he is no longer in debt. This is the date he gives Idgie Threadgoode the last sammich.
  4. Debonair HP4M was murdered on a rainy Sunday afternoon in the HM Guild Hall. At the time of the murder there were: Lady Darkness, Bellatrixie, Doctor Frank-n-furter, Elementarion, and Mistress of Science.
    * LD: I was adjusting the height of the torture chamber table.
    * Bella: I was making a penguin smoothie for breakfast.
    * Doctor Frank: I was “fixing the squeak” on HP4M's... closet door.
    * Elementarion: I was mixing up another batch of Dark Flame.
    * MoS: I was listening to the soothing moans emanating from the dungeon.
    This is who the murderer is.
