Greetings, dear deities! It’s news time again.
Remember an invite to Godville — an activatable item that helps gods friend each other? Apparently, some of us sure did, as it turned out that many deities have lots of invites laying around. Here is a new way to put them into use… on monsters!
With a tap of a finger, you can temporarily befriend the monster your hero is currently fighting. A bewildered beast will stop fighting at once, surrender all its belongings and retreat peacefully. All future encounters with this monster will be bloodless and lootless, at least while the magic lasts, which should be around a day or so.
A few things to note:
- The hero should be at least level 12.
- Special monsters (Questing, Wealthy, Healing, etc) are technically not de-feeted, so they won’t cast their usual upon-defeat curses or boons.
- Wanted monsters, however, will still give the proof of their ‘death’, which makes them an easy target for these one-day friendships.
- If suddenly you find yourself in need of invites, a handy push notification option in the app’s Settings, conveniently added years ago, is still at your service.
As the roster of Godville monsters grew over time, it became a bit difficult to guess who could be tamed or not, and when. From now on, if a hero is actively looking for a pet or has a free space in his ark, all pet-wannabes appropriate for his heroic level will have distinctive bone mark in their name.
Keep in mind though, that “To tame or not to tame?” is still a hero’s question, not god’s. But even if your hero chooses not to, now he will mention that in the diary.
Staff at our daily newspaper is eager to spice things up with a couple new coupon options. The first one will add a new POI on the map, and POIs are good for many things. The second one will let your hero get an unplanned side job upon cashing it in.
