'''What are pet skills?'''
+
'''What is the pet medal?'''
  
Pets skills are special traits that our pets have which make them useful.
+
The pet or “breeder medal” {{medal|zv=*date and time*}} is awarded to God/desses who keep raise their hero’s pet up to level 30. Pets that get knocked out and are not revived within the allotted 60 hours become “levelless” and will not help you work towards this achievement.
  
'''What skills are there?'''
+
'''How do I get it?'''
  
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.
+
Keep the pet alive. Should it get knocked out, you need around 450 gold coins per level of the pet. Example: level 10 pet will need a maximum of 4500 gold (always best to have more). You can dig to find gold, arena and win, or finish an epic quest if you’re lucky. There is also a group on Palringo to help: HM's Pet Cemetery
  
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:
+
'''Why should I try to get it?'''
  
*18-30: Firefox
+
You get a badge next to your name to show everyone you achieved this goal, it’s also one of the Achievements in the game. Sometimes, the medal will prevent your pet being knocked out. If you choose to not revive and you release your pet after it reaches level 30, you still get to keep the medal.
*30-44: Bipolar Bear, Biowolf.
 
*45-49: Heffalump, Were-Panther.
 
*50-65: Double Dragon, Multi-Legged Luggage.
 
*65+: Unknown : Research is being done.

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}}!
+
I don't know about you, but now that the holidays are over and no one is giving me gifts or plying me with food, eggnog and champagne, I'm feeling pretty darned bored. I'll bet you are, too. So, this past week I tried to find ways to cure myself of the winter blahs. Maybe they'll work for you, too.
  
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.
+
* Short-sheet all the beds in the guild hall (except mine, of course), then mock your guild mates as they remake their beds. (So fun!)
+
*Make an origami Multi-legged Luggage. (You may get extremely frustrated and irritable, but you won't be bored. And torching it off when you give up is satisfying.)
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.
+
*Tell a bunch of small children that there is no Santa. (Warning: make sure no parents are present. Yes, that's how I got my black eye.)
 +
*Target other Gods' temples with the pup-a-pult. (I'll replenish all the puppies I used on Mort's.)
 +
*Liberally shake cayenne pepper onto a platter of kitten sammiches and hide all beverages except '''Dark Flame'''. (Warning: don't plan on getting any sleep until everyone passes out.)
 +
*Vote everything down in the Ideabox. (Evidently, tons of people had this idea before I did.)
 +
*See how many times you can punish your hero in ten minutes without killing him. (If he dies, you have to start over. Galldemort is still smoldering.)
 +
*Try to balance a penguin smoothie on your head while walking from one end of the guild hall to the other. (This is hard! And messy.)
 +
*Recite the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody backwards. (.....put man a killed just Momma. Whew!)
 +
*And, of course, there's the old standby: kicking puppies in half. Always sure to please!
  
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.
+
So, feeling blah? Try some of these remedies, or invent your own! Winter can’t last forever, can it?
  
I can speak from experience and, trust me, wrecking your life is completely worth it!
+
'''Next week:''' Meh. I don't know. I'm too bored to figure that out right now. 
 
 
Next week: Bella returns to tell us how to deal with the winter doldrums!

Dearest (soon-to-be) Demonstrative in Deville (if I get my way),
+
Dearest Helpy Helperson,
  
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?
+
Great ideas are always welcome at [[Harvest Moon]]! Heck, not-so-great-ideas are worth a shot. Send them to any of the Blood Council members, pipe up in the Guild Council, take out ad space in the Godville Times, we don’t care how you get them to us, just get them to us! Not every idea is a gem. I’m still apologizing for my “Bring Your [[Significant otter]] to Work Day” idea, not to mention my game ideas like “Who Can Kill Their Hero the Fastest,” “Let’s Guess What That Smell Is” (it involved a certain sock...), “Laundry Day” (hint: lingerie needs hand washing) or “Who Can Clean Frank’s Lab.” Yes, even I come up with ideas that aren’t loved by all. I’ll wait for you to recover from the shock that statement must’ve caused...
  
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!
+
In other words, we want your ideas! Send us a note, a suggestion, a plea for play time in the lab, a link to a video clip of your audition for Survivor, or just a howdy! We look forward to hearing from you!
  
 
Yours,

Pets (part 3): The Pet Medal

In only 6 to 9 months, this could be yours!

What is the pet medal?

The pet or “breeder medal” is awarded to God/desses who keep raise their hero’s pet up to level 30. Pets that get knocked out and are not revived within the allotted 60 hours become “levelless” and will not help you work towards this achievement.

How do I get it?

Keep the pet alive. Should it get knocked out, you need around 450 gold coins per level of the pet. Example: level 10 pet will need a maximum of 4500 gold (always best to have more). You can dig to find gold, arena and win, or finish an epic quest if you’re lucky. There is also a group on Palringo to help: HM's Pet Cemetery

Why should I try to get it?

You get a badge next to your name to show everyone you achieved this goal, it’s also one of the Achievements in the game. Sometimes, the medal will prevent your pet being knocked out. If you choose to not revive and you release your pet after it reaches level 30, you still get to keep the medal.

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!

I don't know about you, but now that the holidays are over and no one is giving me gifts or plying me with food, eggnog and champagne, I'm feeling pretty darned bored. I'll bet you are, too. So, this past week I tried to find ways to cure myself of the winter blahs. Maybe they'll work for you, too.

  • Short-sheet all the beds in the guild hall (except mine, of course), then mock your guild mates as they remake their beds. (So fun!)
  • Make an origami Multi-legged Luggage. (You may get extremely frustrated and irritable, but you won't be bored. And torching it off when you give up is satisfying.)
  • Tell a bunch of small children that there is no Santa. (Warning: make sure no parents are present. Yes, that's how I got my black eye.)
  • Target other Gods' temples with the pup-a-pult. (I'll replenish all the puppies I used on Mort's.)
  • Liberally shake cayenne pepper onto a platter of kitten sammiches and hide all beverages except Dark Flame. (Warning: don't plan on getting any sleep until everyone passes out.)
  • Vote everything down in the Ideabox. (Evidently, tons of people had this idea before I did.)
  • See how many times you can punish your hero in ten minutes without killing him. (If he dies, you have to start over. Galldemort is still smoldering.)
  • Try to balance a penguin smoothie on your head while walking from one end of the guild hall to the other. (This is hard! And messy.)
  • Recite the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody backwards. (.....put man a killed just Momma. Whew!)
  • And, of course, there's the old standby: kicking puppies in half. Always sure to please!

So, feeling blah? Try some of these remedies, or invent your own! Winter can’t last forever, can it?

Next week: Meh. I don't know. I'm too bored to figure that out right now.

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

She blinded me with science!
Here we sit down weekly with a Harvest Moon warrior and find out what makes them tick. This week’s Deity is Blood Council-member and Goddess extraordinaire: GodMistress of Science 
  • Q: What is your favorite salty snack?
  • A: Really anything flavored with the tears of virgins. That or Cheetos.
  • Q: What song do you love to dance to?
  • A: Michael Jackson's Bad. I prefer to sit out, however, and watch the minion dance to avoid lightning.
  • Q: What GV pet would you like to have?
  • A: An Omnomnomnivore. Seems like it would know some good recipes.
  • Q: What are your hero’s marketable skills?
  • A: Hmm. Well he's very good at not listening and talking over me, so maybe he'd be a good DMV or call center employee.
  • Q: Do you get emotional using Encourage when in times of crisis?
  • A: By emotional, do you mean excited? Then yes! For every encourage I have the chance to hammer him with punishments in order to retain my alignment.
  • Q: Do you have any hidden talents?
  • A: No, I proudly display all my Ancient Roman currency.

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

Famous HM Heroes This Week

#740 GODVILLE TIMES Day 979 g.e.
The Dart - 70th-level adventurer, member of the “Harvest Moon” guild, with the motto “Its got fangs!”, stands at the 169th position in the pantheon of gratitude under the vigilant supervision of the god GodTradwolley . His worst enemy - a Tongue Twister. Favorite trophy - something that looks like a free lunch. He is also a huge fan of Los Adminos’s pubs.

No-Influence Tournament In Full Swing!

As of press time, Round One is complete and Round Two is almost done. Facing off in the semi-final is GodDivine Dark Queen  vs GodAbsent Goddess  and GodManhernandez295  will face either GodErissa of Chaos  or GodTao Zen . The two winners will then face off to see who takes home the first and second place prizes while the two less successful God/desses’ hero/ines will square off for the honor (or charges) that comes with being crowned third and fourth place winner.

You can follow the action at https://sites.google.com/site/harvestmoonguild/hmtr. The No-Influence Tournament is held quarterly, so get ready for April if you weren’t able to make this one!

Member of the Week

He speaks!! ...Quite a bit, actually.
Get to know a newer member of Harvest Moon! This week's guest is: GodSilentBob187 
  • Q: How did you choose HM?
  • A: Zostacular, a friend from other games, suggested I try out Godville and join his guild. I've been hooked ever since.
  • Q: Where does your hero hide his coin purse?
  • A: Under a rocket that says "No coin purse here," in permanent ink.
  • Q: Name something(s) you and your hero have in common.
  • A: When it really matters, we both fall victim to The Great Random's less supportive side.
  • Q: What is the best advice you’ve gotten from another God or Goddess?
  • A: Melt more coin, alchemical transmuters are amazing, and never walk away from an arena fight/skirmish if you think you're winning.
  • Q: What toppings do you like on your kitten sammiches?
  • A: Sardines and Thousand Island dressing.

Classifieds

Selling Evil Since Day 898 g.e.
Wanted: Sparring partners. We have a couple of members getting really close to their Coach achievement. If you have an invite, add them next time they pop up in guild council asking for spars. They’re pretty great folks to have on your list. You won’t be sorry you did.
Lost: Guild Initiation paddle. Last seen at the initiation of GodHappy Bunny . On Friday at 2 AM PST, the lights will go out for 15 minutes. Should the paddle “magically resurface” at this time, there will be no questions asked. DO NOT make us come looking for it.
Wanted: Information on Silver Raven Piracy Guild. Talk to the duck behind the theater. Will pay for solid leads.
Reply: To the “handyman in search of arms,” I have 3.5 pair. All yours. Price negotiable. Post meet in next week’s paper if you’re interested.
Personal: Single, green, dragon-god seeks unattached, virginal female for relatively short-term relationship. Just tether yourself to the stake on the south side of the River Stinks at the next full moon.

Doctor Frank's Advice Corner

An evil queen
Dear Dr. Frank,

I have some great ideas that I think would help out guild a lot. How do I communicate these?

Signed, I’d like to help!

Dearest Helpy Helperson,

Great ideas are always welcome at Harvest Moon! Heck, not-so-great-ideas are worth a shot. Send them to any of the Blood Council members, pipe up in the Guild Council, take out ad space in the Godville Times, we don’t care how you get them to us, just get them to us! Not every idea is a gem. I’m still apologizing for my “Bring Your Significant otter to Work Day” idea, not to mention my game ideas like “Who Can Kill Their Hero the Fastest,” “Let’s Guess What That Smell Is” (it involved a certain sock...), “Laundry Day” (hint: lingerie needs hand washing) or “Who Can Clean Frank’s Lab.” Yes, even I come up with ideas that aren’t loved by all. I’ll wait for you to recover from the shock that statement must’ve caused...

In other words, we want your ideas! Send us a note, a suggestion, a plea for play time in the lab, a link to a video clip of your audition for Survivor, or just a howdy! We look forward to hearing from you!

Yours,

~Dr. Frank
