Godville is a text game, but did you know that it has pictures too? Thanks to the relentless creativity of our players, GodWiki steadily accumulated some quite interesting pieces of artwork that clearly deserve more visibility.
So, here is an experimental feature to shed more light on this — Know Your Monster section in the Godville Times newspaper. Guess what monster is in the picture to get a link to the full wiki article, while your hero gets a small reward — with a special mini-quest built-in.
Btw, we’d be glad to reward the art made for GodWiki with some gratitude pantheon points. If you made a decent and original picture for a known Godville entity (monsters, towns, pets, etc), make sure to send a link to it via Ideabox “other” category along with a short description. “Know Your Monster” event will run for the next few weeks, but with the new art it may come back again later.
During the last few months, we managed to get through the large part of Ideabox content submissions — finally! Today the game got hundreds of new monsters, artifacts, earthly news, and dungeon and sails phrases. Huge thanks to all the authors and ER-editors for their work.
There is one more small, but nice feature: now you can congratulate your hero on his birthday — and it won’t be lost in vain. The hero will answer and will even give something back in return. You can track the birthday of your champion on his public page or in the Birthdays section of your guild stats page.
