'''Digging Up Monsters: How to find them and what to do with them when you do.'''
+
'''How to join in “the right way.'''
  
How to find them? Read the [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/546?page=111#post_105040 digging advice] {{god|Marked8}} posted in the forum or check out the [http://wiki.godvillegame.com/SBFH#Digging_Methods.5B4.5D super-helpful wiki] of {{god|SBFH}}.
+
So you checked out the forums and you’d like to participate but you’re shy or unsure of the proper “etiquette”? These general guidelines are for you!
  
What to do with them? Kill them, of course! Standard arena rules apply. Each boss can come at you with one, two, or three abilities, however, so you’ll want to prepare yourself before going in. Below we’ll discuss not just the abilities, but how to handle them in a way that makes others see you as an ally they want by their side in a boss fight.
+
# No reason to be shy! Remember, on the interwebz, nobody knows you’re really a dog. Just kidding - kind of. If you hit “post” and immediately regret it or notice a typo, you can always edit or delete your post by using the little tiny triangle next to your name on that post. It will show you a drop-down menu that will let you handle those types of things. You only have 15-17 minutes to "fix" it, but it's better than nothing!
 +
# Still not convinced? Private message an active poster and have them read over your post before you send it. Most of us are happy to tell you how awesome you are or, at the very least, that it’s perfectly fine to post whatever it is you wrote or give you pointers if you need them.
 +
# You posted and someone deleted your brilliant verbiage? How dare they? Before you get all huffy: think! Did you post on a “dead” thread? Did your post contain words inappropriate for a PG-13 audience? Were you “spamming,” trying to recruit or poach members from other guilds, or being rude? If you were, prepare to have your post removed as none of these actions are appreciated in the forum community.
 +
# A guild is having an event and you’d like to participate but you/your guild weren't invited. Send a friend invite to a member of the guild in question and ask before barging into their role play. More often than not you’ll be invited to join in the fun, but some folks work very hard on their forums and someone traipsing in and messing up the flow of their story line can be un-fun.
 +
# Your guild is hosting an event and you’d like to invite others. Great! Don’t post in every active forum inside of 5 minutes (that’s spam, folks, so take your time! One per hour or so works well.), be considerate of what’s going on in their forum at the moment, and be prepared to make some new friends!
 +
# Another guild is hosting an open event you’d like to participate in, but you don’t know how to make green boxes or bold text. Don’t sweat it! Send a PM to an active poster if you’re truly afraid you’re wearing the wrong outfit to the dance, and remember that “Preview comment” lets you view before you “Post Reply.
  
* '''Auriferous''' monsters make gold out of random stones, the heroes’ artifacts, and the heroes’ blood (this last one does damage to the hero). Many folks dig to collect gold for their temples, pet revivals, and donations and are interested in getting as much gold as possible out of a boss. Depending on the other abilities this is combined with, the goal would be to keep the monster alive as long as possible in order to maximize the amount of gold each hero gets. In other words: Don’t hit the beastie!
+
Basically, there’s not a lot of “rules” about posting in the forums. Just be considerate of others and have fun! If there’s something you don’t know how to do, there’s someone out there who does, so don’t be afraid to ask. Happy posting!
 
 
* '''Deafening''' monsters “shout down” your Voice Commands (VCs). The occasional prayer has been known to get through, but it’s best to save your Godpower (GP) on Encouraging to heal and Punish to damage the monster if those options are available to you.
 
 
 
* '''Faithless''' monsters are immune to punishes. To end this fight quicker, you’ll want to use attack VCs (if the monster isn’t also Deafening). Bonus: the boss is also immune to Encourage backfires, so you don’t have to worry about healing the boss that way.
 
 
 
* '''Hulking''' monsters have extra health as compared to non-Hulking monsters of the same “species.” The weaker monsters (like the Squirmisher) get around an extra 50%, but the tough guys (such as the Dragonandon) can get an extra 90%. This doesn’t change your ability to act against them, but may change your strategy when you see it may be a longer fight. Pray commands are your friends!
 
 
 
* '''Leeching''' monsters heal themselves by “leeching” off of your Encourages. This means you have a high chance of healing the monster by healing your hero with an Encourage. It doesn’t usually heal them as much as it heals you. While it’s considered poor sportsmanship to Encourage if you don’t need to, by all means, do what you need to survive! The Leeching, Auriferous monster is one of the most sought after in all of Godville as Leeching means keeping an Auriferous monster alive longer which means more gold for everyone. The monster may start trying and failing to leech after a while.
 
 
 
* '''Pickpocketing''' monsters steal the heroes’ artifacts and either put them in inventory or use them to heal themselves a bit. The monster’s inventory is divided up amongst the survivors at the end of the match. Unless you have a precious item you want to keep, there’s no real reason to panic about this guy. You’ll still end up with more than you started with.
 
 
 
* '''Summoning''' monsters call in a little “mini” monster to help them once their health hits around 50%. The mini has about 30% of the original boss’ health. If you and your allies act quickly (and aren’t blocked by other abilities), you may be able to kill the original boss before it summons, but this is rare. Expect it to add a few extra steps to your boss fight and plan accordingly. Mini monsters ''do not'' have abilities and can be affected by things the original boss isn’t. There is no guarantee which monster your action/VC will target, however, so if GP is a concern, follow the original monster’s “rules.”
 
 
 
* '''Squandering''' monsters eat their artifacts and gold during the fight. Most people prefer to kill them quickly unless they are only in it for the Hunter achievement and don’t care about the loot.
 
 
 
* '''Sweeping''' monsters have the ability to hit all of the heroes at the same time while others have to “choose” which one to hit. Watch your health with these ones!
 
 
 
Most of the active diggers will do their best to help you stay alive if you put forth a little effort to kill the monster and stay alive while doing so. There’s no need to expend a bunch of charges on these guys. Helping your ally out via VC if they clearly have no clue about an ability and pitching in a bit can go a long ways. Happy digging!

Last week I announced I'd be answering more readers' questions today, so let's go straight to the old mailbag and see what we've got, shall we? Oh, look! That's right, it's empty. Not to worry. I learned last time not to underestimate the apathy of my audience, so I have a backup plan. And you're in luck - I'm not going to sing.
+
After signing up for the voice command-only dueling tournament over at [[Yggdrasil The Ash Tree]] guild, I realized my VC repertoire is really pretty lame. So I decided to write some new ones that would stand out in a crowd. Smite, kick, heal, pray...so boring. But how to express the inner me? Then, while singing in the shower, it hit me - I should express myself in song! So this week, I present you with song lyrics that can be used as voice commands! I know - genius. And remember, folks - if you can't dazzle them with wit, befuddle them with obscure inanity!
  
It's a well-known fact that Harvest Mooners...er, Moonies...erm, Moononites....members of [[Harvest Moon]] are not early risers. By the time I roll out of bed, get dressed, snarl my hair and hike over to [[Blue Feather]] for breakfast, their baked goods are long gone. So the other day while having a few drinks with {{god|Sarika}}, I managed to talk her into sharing her most famous recipe with me. Well, she was actually passed out, but I know she would have wanted me to have it. So today, we will be making Sarika's Godville-Famous Cinnamon Rolls!
+
'''FIGHTING'''
 +
* HIT him with your best shot, fire away! ''(Pat Benetar)''
 +
* Just BEAT it, BEAT it, no one wants to be defeated! ''(Michael Jackson)''
 +
* You gotta SMITE for your right to paaaartay! ''(Beastie Boys)''
 +
* TRAMPs like us, baby we were born to run! ''(Bruce Springsteen)''
 +
* ATTACK of the killer tomatoes! ''(from the movie)''
 +
* I get no KICKs from champagne, but I get a KICK out of you. ''(Cole Porter)''
 +
* They say that lightning never STRIKEs the same place twice. ''(Ozzy Ozbourne)''
 +
* BEAT me, daddy, eight to the bar! ''(Andrews Sisters)''
 +
* He's a TRAMP, he's a scoundrel, he's a rounder, he's a cad! ''(Lady and the Tramp)''
  
Okay! First, I'll just pour myself a glass of '''Dark Flame''' to sip as we assemble the ingredients. Mmmmm, good! Right. We'll need flour, salt, cinnamon (I swiped, I mean borrowed some from Blue Feather), sugar (thanks again, BF), and yeast. Hmmm...yeast...I bet beer would work. I mean, there's beer bread, right? Oops, need a refill of '''Dark Flame'''. Alright! Get a big bowl, and put a bunch of flour in there. Don't worry, weevils are very nutritious! Just don't let the little buggers escape. Add a few shakes of salt, some sugar, and a big splash of beer. Oh. I guess I didn't need to open a whole quart. Well, waste not, want not. I'll just drink the rest. Mix it up well and let it rise while you go to the bar for a few. This is fun!
+
'''HEALING'''
 +
* No REST for the blessed, long life for the wicked! ''(Alexisonfire)''
 +
* See me, feel me, touch me, HEAL me. ''(The Who)''
 +
* I'm willing to bet that I'mma be crazy for the REST of my life. ''(Ludacris)''
 +
* DRINK one bourbon, one scotch, and one beer. ''(George Thorogood)''
  
[An hour later] Well, now, let's jush...just see how it's doin' there. Ooh! It's all puffy 'n soft! Now we jus' squoosh it all down again. I like that word, squoosh, don' you? Squoooooshhhh. Yep. Squooshy. Okay. Now we gotta roll it out like a big ol' pancake. Rolling pin...rolling pin...ya know? I don' think we have one. Huh. Think I'll jus' have another lil' '''Dark Flame''' and think about this.
+
'''PRAYING'''
 +
* It's no SACRIFICE, no SACRIFICE, no SACRIFICE at all. ''(Elton John)''
 +
* When you call my name, it's like a little PRAYer. ''(Madonna)''
 +
* (PRAISE) Like the devil. ''(Sevendust)''
  
[Ten minutes later] Okiedokie, then! I'm jus' gonna flop this outta th' bowl onta th' counter - whoopsie! Okay, on the floor, then, an' sit on it! Whee! Ish jus' like a whoopie cushie! Cushion! Woohoo! Who knew bakin' was sho mush fun? Yep, s'all mooshed flat now. Now we spinkle...sprinkle cinnaninamom ' n sugar allll over th' place an' roll it up like a big ol' snakiepoo. Looks kinda like my feather boa conscriptor...consipter...whatever. Lemme see, whazzit say to do nex' - gotta close one eye...tha's better. Cut the pretty lil' snake into pieces? Nooo no no, not me. Poor lil' snake. I'll jus' bend it aroun' in the pan an' pop it in th' oven. There! Now back to th' bar while it bakes.
+
There, my job is done. Nothing wrong with bringing a little culture to Godville. And you may just end up ruining your opponent's day by getting a song stuck in his or her head. Bonus!
  
[Wakes up with her cheek stuck to the bar and smoke billowing out of the kitchen] Ooh! I think it mus' be done! Les' jus' take it outta th' oven an' douse th' flames. Okay, [[Harvest Moon]]! Come 'n get it! Oof...I need a nap.
+
Next week: I can't think right now. That Madonna song just won't go away.
 
 
Next week: [We don't know. She's passed out. - the editors]

Over the past four weeks, our reader have vied for the chance to compete for fun and prizes in the “Over The Moon” quiz. Questions (and crosswords puzzles) were posted here and answers were posted in the [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/546 Harvest Moon Forum].
  
Dearest Can’t follow directions >:/
+
Each week’s winner recieved four (4) charges ''and'' was automatically entered to play in the '''Over the Moon Championship''', held monthly on Palringo. Last week’s quiz garnered a tie and we’re still sorting out exactly who will be competing. Either {{god|JimBob64}}, {{god|Royal Highness}} or {{god|Godofbeer}} will be joining the previous week’s winners, {{god|Elementarion}}, {{god|Artsonian}} and {{god|GigglesMcGee}} to compete for 45 charges!
  
And I quote from last week's issue (really... did you read it?):  
+
'''This month’s OtM Championship:'''
* Ask the kitten shaving members of the HM kitchen staff for the fur... 
 
  
...ask for the FUR! Not the kittens! Oh, what a waste! The only thing to be done with them now is to use them as belated (and tainted, therefore truly evil) Valentine’s gifts for your goody-goodie acquaintances. “Sorry it’s late, but I thought of you! I made it myself! Err... picked it out myself! Just for you! Yeah, that’s the ticket!” Mwahahahaha!
+
Think “Match Game”, but call it the OtMC! Each contestant will be asked 3 questions, their goal being to figure out how the panelists would answer them. Whoever has the most correct at the end wins. If there’s a tie, there will be a tie-breaking round.
  
Yours,
+
All participants and audience members (all are welcome!) should join the [otm game show] group on Palringo. Not everyone is required to be there at the same time, but we’d like to ask the contestants to please message either {{god|Hairplug4men}} or {{god|Doctor Frank-n-furter}} to let us know what time(s) work best for you. Our hope would be to finish in time to publish the results (along with our next quiz) in next week’s ''Weekly Harvest''.
  
~Dr. Frank

Good luck to the contestants and happy viewing to our audience!

* 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 [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/546 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:'''
 
 
 
# At this level the hero obtains his final skill.
 
# Actual news from GV: ''Stuck in traffic waiting for a "-----" of sheep to cross the road...'
 
# Mistress of Science been an HM officer since this date.
 
# A brand new god spends 3 charges a day punishing until Fiend, 2nd Rank. He then spends 7 charges every day. If using those charges are the only time the god punishes, then this is the number of days it will take to reach Fiend, 1st Rank.

Forum Events and Etiquette

Point of order, sir!

How to join in “the right way.”

So you checked out the forums and you’d like to participate but you’re shy or unsure of the proper “etiquette”? These general guidelines are for you!

  1. No reason to be shy! Remember, on the interwebz, nobody knows you’re really a dog. Just kidding - kind of. If you hit “post” and immediately regret it or notice a typo, you can always edit or delete your post by using the little tiny triangle next to your name on that post. It will show you a drop-down menu that will let you handle those types of things. You only have 15-17 minutes to "fix" it, but it's better than nothing!
  2. Still not convinced? Private message an active poster and have them read over your post before you send it. Most of us are happy to tell you how awesome you are or, at the very least, that it’s perfectly fine to post whatever it is you wrote or give you pointers if you need them.
  3. You posted and someone deleted your brilliant verbiage? How dare they? Before you get all huffy: think! Did you post on a “dead” thread? Did your post contain words inappropriate for a PG-13 audience? Were you “spamming,” trying to recruit or poach members from other guilds, or being rude? If you were, prepare to have your post removed as none of these actions are appreciated in the forum community.
  4. A guild is having an event and you’d like to participate but you/your guild weren't invited. Send a friend invite to a member of the guild in question and ask before barging into their role play. More often than not you’ll be invited to join in the fun, but some folks work very hard on their forums and someone traipsing in and messing up the flow of their story line can be un-fun.
  5. Your guild is hosting an event and you’d like to invite others. Great! Don’t post in every active forum inside of 5 minutes (that’s spam, folks, so take your time! One per hour or so works well.), be considerate of what’s going on in their forum at the moment, and be prepared to make some new friends!
  6. Another guild is hosting an open event you’d like to participate in, but you don’t know how to make green boxes or bold text. Don’t sweat it! Send a PM to an active poster if you’re truly afraid you’re wearing the wrong outfit to the dance, and remember that “Preview comment” lets you view before you “Post Reply.”

Basically, there’s not a lot of “rules” about posting in the forums. Just be considerate of others and have fun! If there’s something you don’t know how to do, there’s someone out there who does, so don’t be afraid to ask. Happy posting!

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!

After signing up for the voice command-only dueling tournament over at Yggdrasil The Ash Tree guild, I realized my VC repertoire is really pretty lame. So I decided to write some new ones that would stand out in a crowd. Smite, kick, heal, pray...so boring. But how to express the inner me? Then, while singing in the shower, it hit me - I should express myself in song! So this week, I present you with song lyrics that can be used as voice commands! I know - genius. And remember, folks - if you can't dazzle them with wit, befuddle them with obscure inanity!

FIGHTING

  • HIT him with your best shot, fire away! (Pat Benetar)
  • Just BEAT it, BEAT it, no one wants to be defeated! (Michael Jackson)
  • You gotta SMITE for your right to paaaartay! (Beastie Boys)
  • TRAMPs like us, baby we were born to run! (Bruce Springsteen)
  • ATTACK of the killer tomatoes! (from the movie)
  • I get no KICKs from champagne, but I get a KICK out of you. (Cole Porter)
  • They say that lightning never STRIKEs the same place twice. (Ozzy Ozbourne)
  • BEAT me, daddy, eight to the bar! (Andrews Sisters)
  • He's a TRAMP, he's a scoundrel, he's a rounder, he's a cad! (Lady and the Tramp)

HEALING

  • No REST for the blessed, long life for the wicked! (Alexisonfire)
  • See me, feel me, touch me, HEAL me. (The Who)
  • I'm willing to bet that I'mma be crazy for the REST of my life. (Ludacris)
  • DRINK one bourbon, one scotch, and one beer. (George Thorogood)

PRAYING

  • It's no SACRIFICE, no SACRIFICE, no SACRIFICE at all. (Elton John)
  • When you call my name, it's like a little PRAYer. (Madonna)
  • (PRAISE) Like the devil. (Sevendust)

There, my job is done. Nothing wrong with bringing a little culture to Godville. And you may just end up ruining your opponent's day by getting a song stuck in his or her head. Bonus!

Next week: I can't think right now. That Madonna song just won't go away.

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.

Over the Moon

We've got games, we've got prizes... Who needs a theme song?
The Championship!

Over the past four weeks, our reader have vied for the chance to compete for fun and prizes in the “Over The Moon” quiz. Questions (and crosswords puzzles) were posted here and answers were posted in the Harvest Moon Forum.

Each week’s winner recieved four (4) charges and was automatically entered to play in the Over the Moon Championship, held monthly on Palringo. Last week’s quiz garnered a tie and we’re still sorting out exactly who will be competing. Either GodJimBob64 , GodRoyal Highness  or GodGodofbeer  will be joining the previous week’s winners, GodElementarion , GodArtsonian  and GodGigglesMcGee  to compete for 45 charges!

This month’s OtM Championship:

Think “Match Game”, but call it the OtMC! Each contestant will be asked 3 questions, their goal being to figure out how the panelists would answer them. Whoever has the most correct at the end wins. If there’s a tie, there will be a tie-breaking round.

All participants and audience members (all are welcome!) should join the [otm game show] group on Palringo. Not everyone is required to be there at the same time, but we’d like to ask the contestants to please message either GodHairplug4men  or GodDoctor Frank-n-furter  to let us know what time(s) work best for you. Our hope would be to finish in time to publish the results (along with our next quiz) in next week’s Weekly Harvest.

Good luck to the contestants and happy viewing to our audience!
