'''What is a Golden Brick?'''
+
'''What is a temple?'''
  
Most likely, unless you’ve only been playing for a day or two (in which case: Welcome to Godville!) or living under a fairly large rock, chances are you’ve seen mention of these shiny baubles a time or two. [[Golden bricks]] are what your hero/ine will build your temple out of. They are arguably the most valuable item your hero/ine can find... until they’ve collected 1,000 of them, at which point, they will complete your temple.
+
A temple is built to hero/ine once they’ve collected 1000 (100%) Golden Bricks. This also adds a new feature to the God/dess’ [Remote Control]: the Miracle button.
  
'''How do you get these magnificent, shiny bricks?'''
+
'''Why do I need one?'''
  
There are several ways:
+
A temple exists for the hero to have somewhere to pray to his/her diety. This is also a good source of income later in the game when you visit it. The more complete your temple, the more donations your hero may find there when they visit. This can help by giving you gold to make more bricks or help revive your beloved pet.
*Punish or Encourage your hero/ine when they have 3,000 gold coins or more (it’s very helpful to set notifications on your phone or in Google Chrome to alert you to these moments if you’re looking to “brick faster.
 
*You have a chance at getting a brick just for sending to the arena, you get one for winning in the arena and you have a chance at getting one if you “time out” (don’t match) in the arena.
 
*You get one just for finishing a quest (some epic quests give you more than one).
 
*You may get one (or more) if you defeat a one of the [[boss-monsters]] you can dig up or if you finish a [[mini-quest]] that ends in a boss-monster and defeat it.
 
  
So, you have your 1,000th brick. What next? Read next weeks issue for more information on ''The Temple.''  
+
'''Extra details:'''
 +
 
 +
The temple, when complete, will give back a charge for your Godpower accumulator or some gold with each visit to Godville. The hero/ine can also donate gold to it in exchange for experience points if they arrive at Godville with 10-, 20- or 30-thousand gold coins.

While looking through the [[Harvest Moon]] castle the other day in search of my misplaced thumbscrews, I came across a number of leftover holiday guests who looked as though they had permanently moved in. Not only that, they were starting to smell. They had to go, but they obviously had no intention of doing so - I had to get creative, and so this week's column is: ''How to get rid of guests who have overstayed their visit!''
+
Last week I announced that my column today would answer your, dear readers, questions. Since NOT ONE of you sent a question in, I can only assume that all your lives are perfectly in order and you don't...sniff...need me. Well, fine. I'm just going to sit here and feast on worms - great big juicy ones, little bitty skinny ones...I'm sure you get my drift. But hell hath no fury like a Bella scorned, so first I'm going to fire up the old karaoke machine and sing you a song, because I know how much you all enjoy my voice. Heh heh.
 +
 
 +
''Bella, just burned my meal,''
 +
 
 +
''Put my dinner in to roast, then forgot it - now it's toast.''
 +
 
 +
''Bella, it had smelled so good,''
 +
 
 +
''And now I have to throw it all away.''
 +
 
 +
''Bella, (oooo-oo-oo-oooooo)''
  
* Tell them they're being relocated to Lady Darkness' and Dogess' room. If seeing their torture “toys” on the walls doesn't send them packing, one night ought to do the trick.
+
''Wish I'd asked for your advice,''
* Offer a free concrete body wrap in the spa. Once it sets, spray them gold and have the evil gnomes lay them on the foundation of a rival's unfinished temple.
 
* Hide Hairplug4men's sock under their pillow. (Just the threat of doing this will send most people flying out the door. )
 
* Have Dr. Frank-n-furter show them his lab. They may not leave, but trust me, you'll probably never see them again.
 
* Get me drunk and set up the karaoke machine. Few can withstand the awesome awfulness...erm, power of my voice.
 
* Lock them in a room with Mistress of Science while she explains calculus and quantum physics to them. This may not work on everyone, but it sure works on me!
 
* Let the late-night Palringo crew loose with colored sharpies once the guest has passed out from too much Dark Flame. Not only will they leave the next morning, they'll remember us for a long, long, looooong time.
 
* Give them a tour of the Harvest Moon kitchen. If that doesn't gross them out, nothing will.
 
* Unscrew all the lightbulbs in their room, tack a sign up that says "Sarika," and wait for Rufus to get home. Take photos.
 
* If all else fails, lock them in Hairplug4men's closet for five minutes. Warning: NOT for the faint-hearted. Casualties may occur. Always wear a gas mask and gloves.
 
  
No more pesky guests! I feel so great about it, I think I'll break into song! Now where's that karaoke mic?
+
''If you're not back again next week, such sorrow!''
  
'''Next week:''' Bella answers your decorating, entertaining, and cooking questions! So send them in!
+
''It's my fault, it's my fault,''
  
''Pleeease!''
+
''I should have sent a question....''
 +
 
 +
'''Next week:'''  Hmph! Well, we'll see...

#Three gods of Harvest Moon, Syprox, Absent Goddess, and Wappo, built their temples close to each other in the Harvest Moon village in Godville town. Syprox’s temple is 12 meters away from Absent Goddess’ temple, and Wappo’s temple is a 16 meters away from Syprox’s temple. The three temples form a triangle with an area of 96 square meters. This is the distance between Absent Goddess’ temple and Wappo’s temple.

 +

''Dear Zeerty,''
  
''My hero keeps running into the same heroine. She invites him to share her fire, plies him with drinks, even reads (and occasionally writes in) his diary. Is he being stalked, or are they just good friends?''
+
''My heroine spent countless months obtaining a thousand bricks and completed a temple in my honor, but now she won't stop collecting bricks. And she's not doing anything useful with them. What can I tell my heroine to do with the bricks?''
  
''Signed, A little creeped out''
+
''Signed, A reluctant OCD enabler''
  
Dearest Optimistic beyond belief,
+
Dearest Efficiency pursuer:
  
You ''wish'' your hero was being stalked by that little gal! Be honest: you’re ''hoping'' she can turn him around, be a good influence on him, make him understand that you only want what’s best for him and that you Punish him because he ''needs'' it, not because you’re sadistic and cruel. I’ll give you the bad news first. Not happening, sweetheart. First: you ''are'' sadistic and cruel and, while our heroes may not be the most moral of creatures, I have yet to see one lie successfully. Second: if your hero could get a date, all of Godville would be lining up to ask “How did he do that?” Why? Because stalking requires intent and our heroes just aren’t that bright! Every other hero is out there getting slapped, having restraining orders filed against them, and otherwise failing miserably at having a social life. If you’ve found a secret formula that changes that: please, do share!
+
Congratulations on the completion of your temple. In last week's paper, we talked about [http://wiki.godvillegame.com/index.php?title=Talk:Harvest_Moon&oldid=35991 What is a Golden Brick], now we will learn about what to do with bricks post-temple.
  
Here’s the good news: Your hero has a friend! Friends can be useful. They stop by with some tasty buns or offer a beer at the most convenient of times. The more friends you have, the more you’ll see. If you only have a few friends, it can certainly look a bit stalkery. Branch out! When you get invites, send them to your guildmates (friending folks who are active in your Guild Council is a great place to start)! Did you know you can send an invite without using 50% of your godpower to save it? Just “Invite a friend” when you have one in inventory. Still insist your hero is being stalked? Send him to me! When I’m done with him, the little hussy won’t be interested anymore, I guarantee it.

The Temple

Placed the last brick, swept all the rooms...

What is a temple?

A temple is built to hero/ine once they’ve collected 1000 (100%) Golden Bricks. This also adds a new feature to the God/dess’ [Remote Control]: the Miracle button.

Why do I need one?

A temple exists for the hero to have somewhere to pray to his/her diety. This is also a good source of income later in the game when you visit it. The more complete your temple, the more donations your hero may find there when they visit. This can help by giving you gold to make more bricks or help revive your beloved pet.

Extra details:

The temple, when complete, will give back a charge for your Godpower accumulator or some gold with each visit to Godville. The hero/ine can also donate gold to it in exchange for experience points if they arrive at Godville with 10-, 20- or 30-thousand gold coins.

Read next week’s issue for more information on Miracles.

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!

Last week I announced that my column today would answer your, dear readers, questions. Since NOT ONE of you sent a question in, I can only assume that all your lives are perfectly in order and you don't...sniff...need me. Well, fine. I'm just going to sit here and feast on worms - great big juicy ones, little bitty skinny ones...I'm sure you get my drift. But hell hath no fury like a Bella scorned, so first I'm going to fire up the old karaoke machine and sing you a song, because I know how much you all enjoy my voice. Heh heh.

Bella, just burned my meal,

Put my dinner in to roast, then forgot it - now it's toast.

Bella, it had smelled so good,

And now I have to throw it all away.

Bella, (oooo-oo-oo-oooooo)

Wish I'd asked for your advice,

If you're not back again next week, such sorrow!

It's my fault, it's my fault,

I should have sent a question....

Next week: Hmph! Well, we'll see...

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

Pleased to meet you! Come on in for a bite!
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: GodDoctor Frank-n-furter 
  • Q: Wha-
  • A: I’ll save you some time: The Time Warp, and you’ve all seen my underwear.
  • Q: OK. Point taken. What are your hero’s marketable skills?
  • A: He’s a faithful handyman, he practices “intimate tickling” and “toe bite” fairly well (he has a good teacher) but he utterly disappointed me by acquiring all 10 of his skills and never getting “death by snu-snu.” I’m still pouting.
  • Q: Do you get emotional using Encourage when in times of crisis?
  • A: Of course I get emotional about Encouraging! I get emotional about shoe shopping or deciding which pearls to wear. I’m an emotional kind of guy. Don’t print that.
  • Q: Err... Of course not! How about you? Do you have any hidden talents?
  • A: I do... would you like to come up to my lab for a demon... stration?
  • Q: Umm... I’ll ask the questions, thanks. Last one: Really? sigh What do you like to do in your spare time?
  • A: I love to experiment! I enjoy whipping... up new dishes in the kitchen and… you really should come up to my lab sometime. ;)

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

NEW FEATURE! Over the Moon (The Weekly Harvest Quiz)

We've got games, we've got prizes, all that’s missing is a theme song.
How to play:
  • 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 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. No, members of the paper staff are not eligible to win the weekly quiz or the challenge).
  • The winner of the OtM Championship (to be based on a different game show each month) will receive 45 charges!!

This week’s Answers:

  1. Currently the oldest god in the Harvest Moon Blood Council.
  2. One needs this many Ideas Quality (IQ) points for full access to the Enhancement Room (ER).
  3. This is the requirement for obtaining the Achievement of Hunter, 1st Rank.
  4. Three gods of Harvest Moon, Syprox, Absent Goddess, and Wappo, built their temples close to each other in the Harvest Moon village in Godville town. Syprox’s temple is 12 meters away from Absent Goddess’ temple, and Wappo’s temple is a 16 meters away from Syprox’s temple. The three temples form a triangle with an area of 96 square meters. This is the distance between Absent Goddess’ temple and Wappo’s temple.

See you in the forum! Good luck!

Famous HM Heroes This Week

#753 GODVILLE TIMES Day 992 g.e.
Aricatus - 48th-level adventurer, member of the “Harvest Moon” guild, with the motto “Kaboom, I say, kaboom! ☾”, stands at the 122th position in the pantheon of gratitude under the vigilant supervision of the god GodElementarion . All he ever wanted was a little love and affection.
#755 GODVILLE TIMES Day 994 g.e.
Felipe Enormowang - 50th-level adventurer, member of the “Harvest Moon” guild, with the motto “I wish I wasn't so fat...”, stands at the 96th position in the pantheon of gratitude under the vigilant supervision of the god GodBaws Banger . His worst enemy - a Knee-high Archer. Favorite trophy - something that looks like some mental floss. He is also a huge fan of Godvillewood’s pubs.
#756 GODVILLE TIMES Day 995 g.e.
Meta-K02 - 68th-level adventurer, member of the “Harvest Moon” guild, with the motto “Let the night fall... ☾”, stands at the 72nd position in the pantheon of savings under the vigilant supervision of the goddess GodNight Falls . He is deeply gratified by his place in the pantheon and is not planning to give it up any time soon.

Member of the Week

YES, disassemble! This bot just gets it.
Get to know a newer member of Harvest Moon! This week's guest is: GodJimmy Valmer 
  • Q: How did you choose HM?
  • A: I was looking all through Godville for a guild that was feared enough for Funnybot to fit in. Finally I found HM and knew that it was a perfectly evil fit.
  • Q: Where does your hero hide his coin purse?
  • A: I think he lost it at the tavern. Now he just steals candy from babies and pennies from those 'leave a penny, take a penny' dishes to make ends meet.
  • Q: Name something(s) you and your hero have in common.
  • A: We are both fond of South Park, beer, baseball and beer. Did I mention that we both like beer?
  • Q: What advice would you give another, newer player?
  • A: Conserve GP and spam VCs in the arena. Don't be afraid of losing occasionally and remember this is a game... so enjoy.
  • Q: What toppings do you like on your kitten sammiches?
  • A: I am glad you asked since I consider myself a connoisseur of kitten sammiches. I prefer mustard and of course more kittens (never ketchup).

What would you like to know about your Harvest Moon guild mates? Submit your questions to any member of the Weekly Harvest staff!

Doctor Frank's Advice Corner

He wears the outfit well, don’t you think?
We're thrilled to have a guest columnist this week in Frank's Corner. Please welcome GodZeerty  who we're sure will, at the very least, be more tactful in his responses than our usual columnist. Thank you, Zeerty!

Dear Zeerty,

My heroine spent countless months obtaining a thousand bricks and completed a temple in my honor, but now she won't stop collecting bricks. And she's not doing anything useful with them. What can I tell my heroine to do with the bricks?

Signed, A reluctant OCD enabler

Dearest Efficiency pursuer:

Congratulations on the completion of your temple. In last week's paper, we talked about What is a Golden Brick, now we will learn about what to do with bricks post-temple.

What are good uses for Golden Bricks after your temple?

  1. An attractive gift for one's Empress
  2. Much better to find in your pants than the "other" kind
  3. Payment for writing a Weekly Harvest article
  4. Breaking open mystery boxes
  5. To be lugged around for some reason only to have them stolen by passerbys in a skirmish
  6. Bury them in the ground so other heroes can diggy-dig it up
  7. A sturdy paperweight
  8. A convenient way to hold 3000 gold coins, and never get them back
  9. To be painted black and turned into a fake lead brick
  10. A way better gift than roses - less stinky, too
  11. Put one in a sock and it's a lethal weapon

The possibilities are endless!

Yours,

~Dr. Zeerty-furter
