'''A step-by-step guide to minimizing head-vs-wall brain (and wall) damage''' <br> <sub>By: {{god|BlueStapler}}</sub>
  
* {{color|maroon||'''1:''' You really need to win this match! The gold is exactly enough for you to achieve the goal you’ve been trying so hard to reach. Your opponent stands before you, sadly winning. What do you do to gain ground and defeat him?}}
+
Use the [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/2340 crossword hints forum thread].  
#Stay calm and use ANYTHING to gain hp (or make them lose it). ANYTHING.
 
#Punish against all odds.
 
#Friend him and PM him repeatedly as a distraction.
 
#Surprise them by serial encouraging. If that fails, scream, cuss and throw my phone across the room.
 
#Depends on a few factors, but I might … punish.
 
#I have my methods…
 
#I wish I could have done more practice…
 
<br>
 
  
* {{color|maroon||'''2:''' Something in the council made you laugh. What was it, most likely?}}
+
Search within the [[List of Equipment]], [[List of Skills]], and [[milestones|List of Towns]] Godwiki pages (start with these pages because these lists are generally complete). Use the ctrl-f function to find sets of letters. For example, if the letters "ash" appear together in a word, search a page for "ash". Add spaces as necessary.  
#The guild curmudgeon being curmudgeonly (Hi, Belt!).
 
#Conversation.
 
#Auto carrot.
 
#Belt’s poo jokes.
 
#Something funny. Possibly a conversation unrelated to the game.
 
#I put them in a jar again! :D
 
#Guild role-play. Bet they got me into a jar again…
 
<br>
 
  
* {{color|maroon||'''3:''' The guild is quiet. Too quiet. You have a feeling something’s going to happen. What do you think it will be?}}
+
Next, guess the [[monsters]] and [[artifacts]]. Unfortunately, the [[List of Monsters]] and the [[List of Artifacts]] is severely lacking. Searching the entire godwiki for single words of a multiword answer can help too.
#77 in (Hi HP!).
 
#A murder mystery.
 
#The troll will be released.
 
#HP streaking through the guild council sans sock.
 
#KRAK- A-THOOM! Dramatic thunder!
 
#A party.
 
#I probably would’ve broken the silence.
 
<br>
 
  
* {{color|maroon||'''4:''' Something’s caught your eye in the Weekly Harvest. What word drew your attention?}}
+
Some boxes require a space or a hyphen instead of being left blank. Hyphens are very common between the first and second words of three word answers.  
#Underwear.
 
#Encourage.
 
#Sock.
 
#Crossed-eyed.
 
#I always read (almost) all of the content, so I don’t know.
 
#CAT!
 
#reFeRencE tO Something I reCogNizeD.
 
<br>
 
  
* {{color|maroon||'''5:''' You have a day to yourself to spend however way you wish. Where would you most likely be found?}}
+
Use [http://www.crosswordsolver.org Crosswordsolver.org]. Unfortunately, crosswordsolver.org can only solve for words in the English dictionary and single words or common phrases. To get around this, guess the space in the crossword answer and search for individual words. For [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portmanteau portmanteaus] found only found in Godville, guess where the two dictionary words would be split and search for each word individually. For the most part, if you see a complete word, the first crosswordsolver.org query should assume there's a space or a new word after that complete word. Most artifacts and monsters do not contain more than one portmanteau.  
#In a tavern or in my lab doing…”research”
 
#The HM spa.
 
#The Closet.
 
#In Harvest Moon’s Day Spa, of course.
 
#At home, on the couch. I’m lazy.
 
#In a field of flowers. BURNING THEM!
 
#Nose in a book.
 
<br>
 
  
* {{color|maroon||'''6:''' Your hero’s gotten boring. It’s time to find something a little more entertaining. What’s next on your list?}}
+
If you're still stuck, resort to Google. If you have two adjoining words of a multi-word phrase, put those words into Google with the quotes around them. At the bottom of the Google search results page will be a list of searches related to those words. Maybe the complete phrase will appear there. Adding the word "godville" to the Google search can also help.
#I sense a new alt about to be born…
 
#Knitting.
 
#Honored Achievements.
 
#A trip to Altoholics Anonymous with a brand-spanking-new alt!
 
#Palringo is what I usually go to for fun.
 
#Wouldn’t happen. My hero is too interesting.
 
#Think of creative ways to torture my heroine.
 
<br>
 
  
* {{color|maroon||'''7:''' You don’t know how it happened, you just woke up and…well you’re not taking the blame. Weird goo has gotten on a certain member’s shirt that also happens to be your favorites color. What color is it?}}
+
If all else fails start making your own list of monsters and artifacts or just ask your guildmates for help.
#Midnight blue (looks amazing on my floor – goo or no goo).
+

#Blood.

#Jade Green.

#I’ll start with sky blue, then morph into other colors until it can give people an epileptic seizure.
 
<br>
 
  
* {{color|maroon||'''8:''' Your stomach’s growling. You’re craving your favorite Harvest Moon treat. What is it called?}}
+
In lieu of my guild leader writing an article for us this week, I have decided to step into her shoes. And my, oh, my... they are big shoes.  
#Fresh kitty sammich with onions, sharp cheddar and Russian dressing.
 
#Kitten sammies.
 
#Kitten sammiches.
 
#Popped Kitten Puffs.
 
#'''Dark Flame''' ''on'' a kitty sammich.
 
#Salted puppy jerky.
 
#Something salty.

* {{color|maroon||'''9:''' A member needs your help and you have what they need. What is your skill?}}
+
I’ve decided to give you helpful hints today on how to wake up a sleeping guild leader and get them to notice you as the star that you are.
#Reviving pets.
 
#Giving advice.
 
#Arena'ing.
 
#Shaking my Fabulass©.
 
#Trivia.
 
#Taming cats.
 
#Fast talking my way out of trouble.
 
<br>
 
  
* {{color|maroon||'''10:''' A random thought goes through your head. What most likely are you thinking?}}
+
# Start to dress like them! Works even better if you are the opposite sex. They will definitely be noticing something is different when you are wearing their clothes.
#I wonder what wine goes best with _his_ meatloaf?
+
# Whenever you can, always stand directly behind them. This way you’ll always see and learn what they are doing and the sound of your breath on their shoulder will let them know that you care.
#/dev/random.
+
# Put bags of burning dead animals on their doorstep, knock on the door and run away. This will be taken as a gift and a sign of affection. As they stomp out the flaming sack of dead animal flesh, they will forever have the smell and the pieces on their shoes to remind them just who you are.
#Milk.
+
# Talk incessantly a behind their back, spreading horrible rumors about their personal hygiene and business practices. This will give them something to defend themselves about and also help them meet new friends in the process.
#Bacon.
+
# Once a day, punch them in the face.
#Probably something very remotely related to the context, through several other things.
+
# Order their favorite food on a regular basis. Eat it in front of them but do not share. This will be taken as a sign of strength and determination on your part.
#I AM AWESOME!
+
# Tie them up and throw them down a hole that you might have in your closet... or just any hole will do. This will be seen as a fun excursion and exciting weekend of thrills. Be sure to hose them down often as they begin to stink when down in a hole for too long.
#I don’t want to do this anymore… I think we’re done here.
+
# Most importantly, don't ever forget to let them spank you hard. This is a sign of submission to your glorious guild leaders, and you may just find out that you like it in the end. A little a personal abuse has never hurt anybody.

|'''So… Which WH Staffer are you most like?
+
|'''What:''' Happy page 200! <br>'''When:''' Yesterday (ongoing celebration). <br>'''Where:''' The [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/1655 sowing Sun] guild forum. <br>'''Why:''' Since when do we need an excuse for a party? <br><br>
 
 
'''See your score! Add all your points together to see your exact score.'''
 
 
 
 
 
'''If you scored 10-18, you’re most like:''' <br>{{god|Doctor Frank-n-furter}} <br>Fellow member has a pet down? You’re the God to go to. Calm, clear headed <s>and a bit scary</s>, you find the humor in almost any situation. With a whole lab at your disposal, you can confidently say you know a thing or two about Godville. If someone has a question, your lab doors are <s>almost</s> always open. You invite them to stop by… and perhaps stay for a bite…<br><br>
 
 
 
'''If you scored 19-26, you’re most like:''' <br>{{god|Zeerty}} <br>Ever loyal to the Blood Moon, the word “Encourage” is a major pet peeve of yours. When backed into a corner, the punish button is your best friend. You’re known for your great advice, curious mind and fun-loving personality. After a long day in the arena you would most likely be found kicking back in the Harvest Moon spa, Kitten Sammies by your side.<br><br>
 
 
 
'''If you scored 27-35, you’re most like:''' <br>{{god|Hairplug4men}} <br>You have no fear of confined spaces, and have a <s>slightly disturbing</s> love for <s>smelly</s> well-worn, inanimate objects. Others see past your eccentricities and recognize you for your loyalty to your Guild and your friends. After a long day in the arena… you go to the arena again! One day, you’ll have all of the “a cheap mints” Godville has to offer.<br><br>
 
 
 
'''If you scored 36-43, you’re most like:''' <br>{{god|Bellatrixie The Strange}} <br>Evil is your best friend. You laugh in the face of danger, all the while eating popped kitten puffs and demanding your minions show you the proper respect. Your humor and self-confidence are two of the many traits that Gods admire about you, but it's your strong sense of leadership and loyalty that keeps them knocking on your Guild door.<br><br>
 
 
 
'''If you scored 44-52, you’re most like:''' <br>{{god|Elementarion}} <br>Over analytical to a benefit all who meet you. Not only do you possess the ability to make up words, but entire languages. If everybody had one of you in their pocket there would be no need for smartphones as you know all. Your genius is only outdone by your creativity. <br><br>
 
 
 
'''If you scored 53-61, you’re most like:''' <br>{{god|Nekomancer}} <br>You may not be the eldest, but you are working on becoming the most delightfully evil member of your guild. With a passion for fun and a penchant for mischief, you’re very good at being up to no good. Your sense of humor and creativity are admired and enjoyed by all who meet you. <br><br>
 
  
'''If you scored 62-70, you’re most like:''' <br>{{god|Somnias Vagus}} <br>Not one to divulge your secrets, you manage to surprise your fellow God/desses on a regular basis. Whether you’re sketching your hero/ine’s latest adventure, or Punishing them to within an inch of their life, you’re doing it with style! There’s never a dull moment when you’re around.
+
'''What:''' Dig Baseball! <br>'''When:''' This weekend. <br>'''Where:''' Get more information and/or sign up with {{god|Carnation Blue}} or any member of [[E.I.S. Eternal]]. <br>'''Why:''' Good times with new friends! Two teams will dig with (and against) each other. The objective is to see who can get the most “runs”. In order to score a run, there must be a successful VC and action on a successful attacking round against the boss. No misfires and no backfires. This is more creative than it is competitive.

How to Solve the GV Times Crossword

Why is it so haaaaarrrrd? /whine

A step-by-step guide to minimizing head-vs-wall brain (and wall) damage
By: GodBlueStapler 

Use the crossword hints forum thread.

Search within the List of Equipment, List of Skills, and List of Towns Godwiki pages (start with these pages because these lists are generally complete). Use the ctrl-f function to find sets of letters. For example, if the letters "ash" appear together in a word, search a page for "ash". Add spaces as necessary.

Next, guess the monsters and artifacts. Unfortunately, the List of Monsters and the List of Artifacts is severely lacking. Searching the entire godwiki for single words of a multiword answer can help too.

Some boxes require a space or a hyphen instead of being left blank. Hyphens are very common between the first and second words of three word answers.

Use Crosswordsolver.org. Unfortunately, crosswordsolver.org can only solve for words in the English dictionary and single words or common phrases. To get around this, guess the space in the crossword answer and search for individual words. For portmanteaus found only found in Godville, guess where the two dictionary words would be split and search for each word individually. For the most part, if you see a complete word, the first crosswordsolver.org query should assume there's a space or a new word after that complete word. Most artifacts and monsters do not contain more than one portmanteau.

If you're still stuck, resort to Google. If you have two adjoining words of a multi-word phrase, put those words into Google with the quotes around them. At the bottom of the Google search results page will be a list of searches related to those words. Maybe the complete phrase will appear there. Adding the word "godville" to the Google search can also help.

If all else fails start making your own list of monsters and artifacts or just ask your guildmates for help.

Advice from the Connoisseur of the Cadaverous, the Champion of the Closet, our very own Milkman: Hairplug4men!

In lieu of my guild leader writing an article for us this week, I have decided to step into her shoes. And my, oh, my... they are big shoes.

I’ve decided to give you helpful hints today on how to wake up a sleeping guild leader and get them to notice you as the star that you are.

  1. Start to dress like them! Works even better if you are the opposite sex. They will definitely be noticing something is different when you are wearing their clothes.
  2. Whenever you can, always stand directly behind them. This way you’ll always see and learn what they are doing and the sound of your breath on their shoulder will let them know that you care.
  3. Put bags of burning dead animals on their doorstep, knock on the door and run away. This will be taken as a gift and a sign of affection. As they stomp out the flaming sack of dead animal flesh, they will forever have the smell and the pieces on their shoes to remind them just who you are.
  4. Talk incessantly a behind their back, spreading horrible rumors about their personal hygiene and business practices. This will give them something to defend themselves about and also help them meet new friends in the process.
  5. Once a day, punch them in the face.
  6. Order their favorite food on a regular basis. Eat it in front of them but do not share. This will be taken as a sign of strength and determination on your part.
  7. Tie them up and throw them down a hole that you might have in your closet... or just any hole will do. This will be seen as a fun excursion and exciting weekend of thrills. Be sure to hose them down often as they begin to stink when down in a hole for too long.
  8. Most importantly, don't ever forget to let them spank you hard. This is a sign of submission to your glorious guild leaders, and you may just find out that you like it in the end. A little a personal abuse has never hurt anybody.

Over the Moon

This week’s quiz:
  1. Before boss monsters existed, Harvest Moon had a digger's guide on this forum page.
  2. The next Tournament of Champions will be held in October! There have been this many Tournament of Champions so far.
  3. This is the total number of charges awarded to the winners of the Harvest Moon No Influence Tournament.
  4. This god/dess currently holds the most evil spot in the gladiator Pantheon.
Games and winners and prizes! Oh, my!

Who will be our first contestant in this month’s championship? It could be you! See you in the forum!


How to play:
1. Your “answers” must be in question form (a-la Jeopardy!) and submitted via the Harvest Moon Forum. Answers only, please! Don’t give away the questions to non-WH readers.
2. The first god/dess to get all questions right (or with the most correct) will win four (4) charges and be automatically entered to play in the Over the Moon Championship, held monthly on Palringo.
3. The winner of the Championship (based on a different game show each month) will receive 45 charges!!

Dale Earnhardt Sr – 30th-level adventurer, member of the “Harvest Moon” guild, with the motto “Intimidation!”, stands at the 97th position in the pantheon of storytelling under the vigilant supervision of the god GodNASCAR Fanatic .

  • Q: What GV pet would you like to have?
  • A: I would love to have a ninja tortoise, ‘cause it is already part of the family. Whoop whoop!
  • Q: What are your hero's marketable skills?
  • A: “Lions belch”, but it would only work if he joined the circus or something.
  • Q: Do you get emotional using Encourage when in times of crisis?
  • A: Yes. I get extremely emotional. Sometimes I can’t even move. I just crawl into a fetal position and cry myself to sleep.
  • Q: Do you have any hidden talents?
  • A: I can write in cursive with my feet.
  • Q: How do you like to spend your spare time?
  • A: I like to spend my time punishing my hero or playing video games. Sometimes I do both at the same time but don’t tell anyone... Shhh.

  • A: Please. He hasn’t done anything memorable. Well, there was that one time...
  • Q: If you had to eat your hero, which part of the body would you tuck into first?
