Know Your Monster

Godville, Jul 28 2021

GodWiki Art
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.

Content Update
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.

Heroes’ Birthdays
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.

Can’t wait for the inevitable transition to 2D

Drat. My hero’s birthday was a week ago. Did manage to catch the diary entry where he celebrated in the tavern on a town visit.

Personally, I’d prefer to see his actual birthday listed so I know when to congratulate him next year.

Thanks for maintaining the game for 11+ years.

Off to see if any of my ideabox entries got into the massive content update!

Nice! I wanted to make some art for Godville, but wasn’t sure how to send it. Expect cool shiny monster pics from me! B)

How many images were used? I thought every image in the Godwiki was being used, but apparently most pictures now have been there again
