Guild Member Promotions
The Blood Council
Seemed like a good idea at the time...
has searched for a long several minutes and managed to find three trustworthy members willing to be promoted to position of Officer of Harvest Moon.
New Officers of the Blood Council:
- Artemys - Blood Moon Huntress
- God Of Tasty - Gastronomer of the Moon
- Kure - Blood Moon Vulpini
These gods and goddess have been in Harvest Moon for quite some time. Each has proven themselves, on numerous occasions, to be a member not only willing, but very capable of looking out for the interests of this guild and their fellow guild mates. Being overall great people helped a bit as well. There is no doubt in our minds that these young officers will contribute immensely to the wicked plans that have been awaiting new blood. Check out our guild forum for more information about these three, phenomenal Harvest Moon members.
In addition to the new officers, we would like to acknowledge four other members whose reputation throughout Godville brings honor to our guild. By their character in our guild council, compassion toward other guild members, and their overall diligence in supporting our malevolent way of life, we have chosen to award them with honorary titles, and thereby distinguish them above their peers!
- Shadow Luxio - Sominator Lune
- Ex Machina 3000 - Blood Moon Midas
- JmfC - Wildcard of the Moon
- Proxes - Sleeper of the Moon
At Home with Bella Stewart
| Advice from the Mavin of the Macabre, the Mistress of Mystery, our very own Empress: Bellatrixie The Strange!
If you're like me, you've gotten to know quite a few goody goodies through our alliance with certain benevolent guilds, which brings the quandary of what gifts to give over the holidays. I know from experience that kitten sammiches are not appreciated. Puppies are in danger of being coddled and kept as pets instead of being kicked in half as they were meant to be. Spa memberships don't work out, since most are afraid of our evil gnomes and don't fully appreciate the value of a good blood bath or concrete body wrap. And giving them gifts they profess to like (rainbow unicorns, teddy bears, halo brighteners, anything pink) requires actual contact with such items. Shudder.
So what would make an appropriate gift, without possibly tainting the giver? After long thought and many failed experiments, I've concluded that the best gift to give is absolutely nothing! After all, what's more evil than that?
Next week: Baking with Bella!

Doctor Frank's Advice Corner
|Dear Dr. Frank,
I don't know what to do! My hero got into yet another skirmish! This is the second one this week and he had 6000 coins, 5 bold items - one being an invite - and lost it all! What do I do?
Signed, Tired of this Fight.
Dearest Sleepy Skirmisher,
I hate to tell you this, but... Your hero will very likely skirmish when you aren’t paying attention or even awake. To avoid this: arena! Didn’t you read last week’s article? No? Well, do it! Or... you could have your hero commit suicide every night before you go to bed (“You know it ain’t no lie, baby: die, die, die!” is one of my favorite VCs for this) and resurrect him again in the morning when you can pay more attention. Hooray for the Martyr Achievement! Of course, he’ll still lose all his gold... and artifacts... and damage his equipment a little... and it’s basically a really bad idea outside of emergencies. Does the arena make you nervous? Don’t be afraid to ask for help! We won’t laugh at you... much... at least not while while you’re paying attention.
No question is too great or too small! Submit your questions for Doctor Frank-n-furter to any member of the staff. No invites? Send them via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
