The [[pantheon of unity]] is scored two ways, the first and most important is guild rank. The longer you're in a guild the more points your rank is worth. The second part is based on which actions are used: a “dark” guild will be mostly using Punish, a “bright” guild will be mostly using Encourage, and a “neutral” guild has members using a mixture of the two or a relatively equal number using one or the other.
+
Many believe [[pets]] can be chosen, this is not the case (''unless'' you can arena or arrange for a spar ''every'' time your hero meets up with an undesired pet ''and'' watch them 24-7 or kill the hero when you can’t). For most of us, pets are chosen by the hero at random until you get to the final pet, the [[Philosoraptor]], which is the current only listed pet for the Level 74+ heroes. There are rumors of the [[Dreaded Gazebo]] being a high-level pet, but it hasn’t yet been seen at any level.
  
If you wish to help your guild's unity ranking, follow that alignment of the guild. For example [[Harvest Moon]] is "dark," so Punish to beat monsters and/or melt bricks and use voice commands to heal if you need health. [[Blue Feather]] is "bright," so they should Encourage to heal and melt and use voice commands to strike monsters.  
+
Want to help your hero catch a pet? After they hit level 18, keep their health high, don't punish (and don't miracle if you own a temple) while fighting tameable monsters. The average level for capture of the first pet is level 19, so don’t be discouraged if your level-18 hero hasn’t tamed one yet.

As we all should know, the end of the world is coming December 21! In that spirit, this week I'm offering some suggestions for bizarre behavior that evil gods and goddesses may wish to try just once before the lights go out forever. Just make sure you're alone where no one else can possibly catch you at it.
+
It's a new year, and we all know what that means: new year's resolutions. Yes, even an almost-perfect evil goddess such as myself can use a little improvement, so here are my top ten resolutions for 2013.
* Pink! Wear it, decorate with it, immerse yourself in it!
+
 
* Pet and snuggle that puppy before you kick it in half.
+
'''10.''' Get more exercise by kicking more puppies in half, walking to the bar instead of being served by evil gnomes, and hitting that punish button more often.
* Imbibe that strange concoction called a "soft drink". If you're really adventurous, try a Shirley Temple.
+
 
* Swap those horns for a halo. (WARNING: May cause severe headache and blurred vision)
+
'''9.''' Drink less water, more Dark Flame.
* Eschew those kitten sammiches and go vegetarian.
+
 
* Let your opponent win in the arena. (Bonus: This will confuse and befuddle the rest of Godville)
+
'''8.''' Cut down on carbs, i.e. eat open-faced kitten sammiches and restrict breakfast visits to Blue Feather to only once a week.
* Befriend a monster and give HIM gold and an artifact.
+
 
* Let the newbies go ahead of you in line at the physician's.
+
'''7.''' Work less, delegate more, and still take all the credit. I mean, isn't that what co-leaders and personal assistants are for? Hey, Lady Darkness and Budapesties, c'mere!
* Bury yourself and let a mole dig you up.
+
 
* Use the Encourage button. (WARNING: Not for the faint of heart)
+
'''6.''' Instill more discipline in my hero, Galldemort. The next time he dies, I think I'll just let him rot for awhile. That should help his hearing.
 +
 
 +
'''5.''' Redecorate my temple. All those sacrifices have taken their toll on the carpets, and the blood stains just tip off...er, I mean scare away the worshipers.
 +
 
 +
'''4.''' Make an appointment with Dr. Frank-n-furter for hair and makeup tips. No reason why evil can't be beautiful. And we all know my hair is a fright.
 +
 
 +
'''3.''' Bribe Charon into finally giving me that boat ride across the Styx. He's such a tease!
 +
 
 +
'''2.''' Bring Dogess over to the dark side where she belongs.
  
See you all at Harvest Moon's End of The World party! It's been great knowing you!
+
'''1.''' Forcibly drag Hairplug4men back to Harvest Moon and reunite him with his sock.
  
'''NEXT WEEK:''' What am I saying? There won't ''BE'' a next week!  
+
Next week: How to deal with the winter doldrums!

I’m sure whoever you’re currently-but-not-for-long outpacing is using the tried-and-true methods of blowing lots charges digging, fighting boss monsters, sending to arena (and winning) on a regular basis, and spamming influences while at the trader. Did you know it’s possible to make good progress without paying? Take your time! Really, what’s the rush? Building your temple is the largest of the readily-achievable goals in the game and once that’s done you’ve got... what? The [[pantheon of savings]]? Yay. Retirement. (Note: Sarcasm)
+
Did you know that it’s easier than ever to revive pets? Sure, without a temple it’s difficult to punish your hero to low health to follow the “quest completion” method of reviving (hero completes quest, walks into Godville with low health and enough gold/loot to sell to revive), and the arena ''can'' work but it’s risky as (obviously) you have to win to get/keep the gold you need to revive the little guy. The hero won’t waste any gold under these two circumstances.  
  
Why not give your ridiculously witty, charming and good looking rival (and your wallet) a break? Make sure you've set alerts to go off when your hero collects 3000 gold coins (melt!), arena every time you manage to have three charges and 100% god power, and dig after arena if you have the god power to do so. You really should take it easy. I’m sure your challenger won’t catch you.

There ''is'' another way. DIG! If you’ve noticed the knocked-out pet early enough in the 60-hour countdown, with the new-ish boss monsters and improved digging results, you can collect a significant chunk of change! Without quest completion or arena, I’d recommend having twice the amount needed to revive (the pet’s level times 450 is the maximum amount of gold required). Following this method, to revive my level 19 pet, I need 8850 gold coins. If I collect about 17000, I should be able to revive in almost any town even after wasting/saving half of it.
  
Very sincerely,

Good luck!

Pets (part 1): How to Catch a Pet

Let’s go pet hunting!

Many believe pets can be chosen, this is not the case (unless you can arena or arrange for a spar every time your hero meets up with an undesired pet and watch them 24-7 or kill the hero when you can’t). For most of us, pets are chosen by the hero at random until you get to the final pet, the Philosoraptor, which is the current only listed pet for the Level 74+ heroes. There are rumors of the Dreaded Gazebo being a high-level pet, but it hasn’t yet been seen at any level.

Want to help your hero catch a pet? After they hit level 18, keep their health high, don't punish (and don't miracle if you own a temple) while fighting tameable monsters. The average level for capture of the first pet is level 19, so don’t be discouraged if your level-18 hero hasn’t tamed one yet.

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 a new year, and we all know what that means: new year's resolutions. Yes, even an almost-perfect evil goddess such as myself can use a little improvement, so here are my top ten resolutions for 2013.

10. Get more exercise by kicking more puppies in half, walking to the bar instead of being served by evil gnomes, and hitting that punish button more often.

9. Drink less water, more Dark Flame.

8. Cut down on carbs, i.e. eat open-faced kitten sammiches and restrict breakfast visits to Blue Feather to only once a week.

7. Work less, delegate more, and still take all the credit. I mean, isn't that what co-leaders and personal assistants are for? Hey, Lady Darkness and Budapesties, c'mere!

6. Instill more discipline in my hero, Galldemort. The next time he dies, I think I'll just let him rot for awhile. That should help his hearing.

5. Redecorate my temple. All those sacrifices have taken their toll on the carpets, and the blood stains just tip off...er, I mean scare away the worshipers.

4. Make an appointment with Dr. Frank-n-furter for hair and makeup tips. No reason why evil can't be beautiful. And we all know my hair is a fright.

3. Bribe Charon into finally giving me that boat ride across the Styx. He's such a tease!

2. Bring Dogess over to the dark side where she belongs.

1. Forcibly drag Hairplug4men back to Harvest Moon and reunite him with his sock.

Next week: How to deal with the winter doldrums!

  • Q: What is your favorite salty snack?
  • A: There is no better salty snack than fear and popcorn.
  • Q: What GV pet would you like to have?

  • Q: What are your hero’s marketable skills?

Doctor Frank's Advice Corner

An evil queen
Dear Dr. Frank,

My hero flatly refuses to take care of their pet. Sure, he said he’d feed, bathe and walk the scaly beast... and he does, sometimes. But revive the silly pet? Noooo... that’s asking too much! Why do I have to do all the heavy lifting around here? Doesn’t my hero know how much easier this would be if he’d finish my temple? Can’t he skip just one wild night at the bar? At this point, I’m wishing he’d adopted a pet rock.

Signed, I might write a country song.

Dearest “_ _ M B O and Dumbo was his name-o,”

Did you know that it’s easier than ever to revive pets? Sure, without a temple it’s difficult to punish your hero to low health to follow the “quest completion” method of reviving (hero completes quest, walks into Godville with low health and enough gold/loot to sell to revive), and the arena can work but it’s risky as (obviously) you have to win to get/keep the gold you need to revive the little guy. The hero won’t waste any gold under these two circumstances.

There is another way. DIG! If you’ve noticed the knocked-out pet early enough in the 60-hour countdown, with the new-ish boss monsters and improved digging results, you can collect a significant chunk of change! Without quest completion or arena, I’d recommend having twice the amount needed to revive (the pet’s level times 450 is the maximum amount of gold required). Following this method, to revive my level 19 pet, I need 8850 gold coins. If I collect about 17000, I should be able to revive in almost any town even after wasting/saving half of it.

Good luck!
