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.
+
'''What are pet skills?'''
  
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.
+
Pets skills are special traits that our pets have which make them useful.
  
'''Next week:''' Pets (Part 2): ''Pet Skills''  
+
'''What skills are there?'''
 +
 
 +
There are two main skills: fighting and travelling (riding). Many pets get one or the other and in some cases both. Other things that most pets can help with are healing the hero and finding artifacts.
 +
 
 +
While many people consider some pets “better” than others, since you have little choice in which one your hero will tame, your biggest decision will be in whether or not you choose to revive your pet when they get knocked out. Not happy with Fido? Here’s one opinion on what pets are best for your hero/ine’s level range:
 +
 
 +
*18-30: Firefox
 +
*30-44: Bipolar Bear, Biowolf.
 +
*45-49: Heffalump, Were-Panther.
 +
*50-65: Double Dragon, Multi-Legged Luggage.

| [[File:BudaCall.JPG|thumbnail|At Bella’s beck and call...]] '''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.
+
As our Empress had a nasty run-in with a cold... err, got sneezed on by a unicorn this week, we have a guest writer in Bella Stewart’s corner. Please welcome her personal assistant, {{god|Budapesties}}!
  
'''8.''' Cut down on carbs, i.e. eat open-faced kitten sammiches and restrict breakfast visits to Blue Feather to only once a week.
+
We all have thought about it before: “I want an evil Goddess!” There is something about an evil Goddess that good Gods just can’t resist. Something that they have that a good God can’t ignore. He just has to know what the hype is about.
 +
 +
Well, Gods, let’s go ahead and get this over with. I can save you the trouble. An evil Goddess will toy with your emotions, crush your dreams, build you up to tear you down, always disappear when you need her the most, and never have your best interests in mind. An evil Goddess will make you cry, drink the rest of the milk so you can’t have any, revel in your misery, and always antagonise your mother. An evil Goddess will always call your friends names, cancel your DVR recordings 7 minutes before the end, and never be satisfied with your efforts. An evil Goddess will enjoy the moment of your utmost embarrassment, always say no just to see your disappointment, dutch oven you in bed, tell you your cat died in a tragic sammich accident (as a joke) then wait until you get home from work and realize your cat is fine only to slaughter it then eat it in front of you, she will then make you watch as she kicks the puppy (you got to fill the void left by your dead cat) in half.
  
'''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!
+
An evil Goddess will never ever be a good choice but she will always be the best choice! A God will never see a specimen more perfect than the evil Goddess, he will never experience P L E A S U R E from P A I N without her. He will never get her off his mind or be able to tell his heart that it wants anything else but her. He will download the last 7 minutes of the show and ignore her attempts to give him wedgies in public. He will come to find the enjoyment there is in belittlement and have his mind blown everytime they touch. He will never see another @55 like hers. She will be the yin to his yang and complete the side of his soul he never knew he was missing. In other words the worst thing a good God can do is fall in love with an evil Goddess but the best thing a good God can do is treat himself to a life with '''Bella'''! Errr... I mean a beautiful, saucy, hateful, crazy, strong, evil Goddess.
  
'''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.
+
I can speak from experience and, trust me, wrecking your life is completely worth it!
  
'''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.
+
Next week: Bella returns to tell us how to deal with the winter doldrums!  
 
 
'''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!

''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.''

Dearest “_ _ M B O and Dumbo was his name-o,
+
Dearest (soon-to-be) Demonstrative in Deville (if I get my way),
  
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.  
+
Rules? Etiquette? Those are for lesser gods than we, my dear. We follow the basic rules of Godville: no personal attacks, keep it clean (well, clean enough to fit within the scope of the game), and have fun! Come on by anytime! Just be yourself (or anyone else, for that matter - who’s going to know?), say “hi,” and join the party! We don’t bite... hard... We don’t bite often? And we almost never bite guild mates. Okay, okay: I promise not to bite you. Don’t tell anyone, but, for a group of evil Gods and Goddesses, the folks on the [[Harvest Moon]] forum are a very welcoming and fun bunch, any of whom would be happy to show you around. Afraid you aren’t evil enough? Many of our friends from other guilds aren’t evil at all! And evil, in some cases, in an acquired skill. Where better to learn than among friends?
  
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.
+
Still hesitant? Join in the No-Influence Tournament later this week and get to know some folks first. All guild members are welcome regardless of level or experience.  In the meantime, I’d love to take you on a tour of the guild hall, offer you a glass (or a bottle) of '''Dark Flame''', show you the lab, perhaps? Hope to see you there!
  
Good luck!

Pets (part 2): Pet Skills

Look what I can do!

What are pet skills?

Pets skills are special traits that our pets have which make them useful.

What skills are there?

There are two main skills: fighting and travelling (riding). Many pets get one or the other and in some cases both. Other things that most pets can help with are healing the hero and finding artifacts.

While many people consider some pets “better” than others, since you have little choice in which one your hero will tame, your biggest decision will be in whether or not you choose to revive your pet when they get knocked out. Not happy with Fido? Here’s one opinion on what pets are best for your hero/ine’s level range:

  • 18-30: Firefox
  • 30-44: Bipolar Bear, Biowolf.
  • 45-49: Heffalump, Were-Panther.
  • 50-65: Double Dragon, Multi-Legged Luggage.
  • 65+: Unknown : Research is being done.

Next week: Pets (Part 3): Pet Medal

At Home with Bella Stewart

At Bella’s beck and call...
Advice from the Mavin of the Macabre, the Mistress of Mystery, our very own Empress: Bellatrixie The Strange!

As our Empress had a nasty run-in with a cold... err, got sneezed on by a unicorn this week, we have a guest writer in Bella Stewart’s corner. Please welcome her personal assistant, GodBudapesties !

We all have thought about it before: “I want an evil Goddess!” There is something about an evil Goddess that good Gods just can’t resist. Something that they have that a good God can’t ignore. He just has to know what the hype is about.

Well, Gods, let’s go ahead and get this over with. I can save you the trouble. An evil Goddess will toy with your emotions, crush your dreams, build you up to tear you down, always disappear when you need her the most, and never have your best interests in mind. An evil Goddess will make you cry, drink the rest of the milk so you can’t have any, revel in your misery, and always antagonise your mother. An evil Goddess will always call your friends names, cancel your DVR recordings 7 minutes before the end, and never be satisfied with your efforts. An evil Goddess will enjoy the moment of your utmost embarrassment, always say no just to see your disappointment, dutch oven you in bed, tell you your cat died in a tragic sammich accident (as a joke) then wait until you get home from work and realize your cat is fine only to slaughter it then eat it in front of you, she will then make you watch as she kicks the puppy (you got to fill the void left by your dead cat) in half.

An evil Goddess will never ever be a good choice but she will always be the best choice! A God will never see a specimen more perfect than the evil Goddess, he will never experience P L E A S U R E from P A I N without her. He will never get her off his mind or be able to tell his heart that it wants anything else but her. He will download the last 7 minutes of the show and ignore her attempts to give him wedgies in public. He will come to find the enjoyment there is in belittlement and have his mind blown everytime they touch. He will never see another @55 like hers. She will be the yin to his yang and complete the side of his soul he never knew he was missing. In other words the worst thing a good God can do is fall in love with an evil Goddess but the best thing a good God can do is treat himself to a life with Bella! Errr... I mean a beautiful, saucy, hateful, crazy, strong, evil Goddess.

I can speak from experience and, trust me, wrecking your life is completely worth it!

Next week: Bella returns to tell us how to deal with the winter doldrums!

Down in the dumps about your home or temple's decor? Send GodBellatrixie the Strange  (aka Bella Stewart) your questions directly or submit them to any member of the newspaper staff.

Get To Know a Deity

What pile of bodies? I was just resting my feet...
Here we sit down weekly with a Harvest Moon warrior and find out what makes them tick. This week’s Deity is our beloved Blood Moon Princess: GodCeccetticat 
  • Q: What is your favorite salty snack?
  • A: Penguin smoothies seasoned with the salty tears of defeated monsters, of course!
  • Q: What song do you love to dance to?
  • A: Dance? I'm much too old for dancing. *sigh* Fine. I listen to "Love you Like a Dig Boss" by Selena Goldmez.
  • Q: What GV pet would you like to have?
  • A: I've always wanted to tame a Thesaurus Rex. Imagining it spouting off random words during monster fights is too funny.
  • Q: Do you get emotional using Encourage when in times of crisis?
  • A: Yes, very much so. I once made it rain in Beerburgh for a week while I was lamenting.
  • Q: How do you like to spend your spare time?
  • A: Sleeping. What else do you do when you're not punishing your hero? I'm not as young as those little whippersnapper gods and goddesses. Why, I almost slept through my own temple party.

If you have a burning question for Harvest Moon's Deities, please submit them to the staff. Thank you!

No-Influence Tournament Begins Friday!

ATTENTION WARRIORS OF HARVEST MOON!!!

It is almost time for the Winter Harvest Moon Sparring Tournament to begin! This is sure to be a good one! It isn’t too late to sign up!

We would like to welcome any guildmates interested in this no-influence tournament and that are not already enrolled in the Palringo chatroom to follow this link: https://sites.google.com/site/harvestmoonguild/howtochat. If you are already on Palringo, join the [hmtr] room to participate.

If you need any further assistance, please contact any member of the Harvest Weekly staff, a member of the Blood Council, or just post a note in the Guild Council and we will be glad to help.

Member of the Week

Don’t be fooled - she ain’t no Angel!
Get to know a newer member of Harvest Moon! This week's guest is: GodAngel of Lightning !
  • Q: How did you choose HM?
  • A: Because my brother’s heroine, Annoushka, joined and found out it was so awesome, active and friendly!
  • Q: Where does your hero hide his coin purse?
  • A: In his stash case.
  • Q: What is the hardest part about being all-powerful?
  • A: It’s never enough. The mind bends constantly, trying to comprehend newer ways that I “could” have more power.
  • Q: What is the best advice you’ve gotten from another God or Goddess?
  • A: “Do not take Godville too seriously.” I honestly have to try to remember that at times.
  • Q: What toppings do you like on your kitten sammiches?
  • A: Light, of course... Oh! And mozzarella cheese.

Doctor Frank's Advice Corner

An evil queen
Dear Dr. Frank,

I’m new to the guild and I’m a little shy about posting in the forum. Are there any rules I should be aware of? Etiquette? What if I’m not evil enough?

Signed, Bashful in Beerburgh

Dearest (soon-to-be) Demonstrative in Deville (if I get my way),

Rules? Etiquette? Those are for lesser gods than we, my dear. We follow the basic rules of Godville: no personal attacks, keep it clean (well, clean enough to fit within the scope of the game), and have fun! Come on by anytime! Just be yourself (or anyone else, for that matter - who’s going to know?), say “hi,” and join the party! We don’t bite... hard... We don’t bite often? And we almost never bite guild mates. Okay, okay: I promise not to bite you. Don’t tell anyone, but, for a group of evil Gods and Goddesses, the folks on the Harvest Moon forum are a very welcoming and fun bunch, any of whom would be happy to show you around. Afraid you aren’t evil enough? Many of our friends from other guilds aren’t evil at all! And evil, in some cases, in an acquired skill. Where better to learn than among friends?

Still hesitant? Join in the No-Influence Tournament later this week and get to know some folks first. All guild members are welcome regardless of level or experience. In the meantime, I’d love to take you on a tour of the guild hall, offer you a glass (or a bottle) of Dark Flame, show you the lab, perhaps? Hope to see you there!

Yours,

~Dr. Frank
