Hello Kingdoms~

It is cold! I hope you didn't get a cold, even though I caught one... cough cough

I know you've been waiting for our winter collection and now the Item Shop is updated. Please find your warm cozy outfits for this winter so you won't catch a cold in the caves out there while you are hunting and adventuring.

Also we need nice outfits for the upcoming Christmas parties, right? I put Gongju gowns and Waangja garbs, which were very popular last year, and I added some new colors this year. I know some of you like darker colors instead pink :) so I tried to find dark but still nice stylish colors. I hope you like these new colors.

On your request list, our beautiful long Gathered locks is on top. Here we go~ I put all the Gathered locks with some new colors so please find your favorite colors, and don't send me same request over and over again haha :)

Legend of Samjok-o
Posted by: Vini -- 11:56 PM EST
   
There seems to be a new legend on the libraries Legend scroll. Today Arkanis found some of the scrolls laying around on Kugnae West gate and when he opened it, noticed a new legend available with the title "Samjok-o". The legend was posted by a person called Yondung, who signed it as "Spirit Guide". To buy a Legend go to any kingdom library and purchase them for 2,000.

Check out the copy of the legend post available at the scroll:

BOARD TITLE: Legend
FROM: Yondung DATE: 8/9
SUBJECT: Samjok-o
Scholars and historians have unfolded some old legends of a celestial black bird known as Samjok-o. The Samjok-o or "Sam-Jok-Oh" is a three-legged crow with golden wings. It is believed to be the only creature in all existence that can enter and reside in the Sun because of its black feathers, while a turtle lived in the moon. Due to its unique powers, Samjok-o was revered by ancient tribes as the one divine being that connects the heavens and the earth. The power of Samjok-o is believed to superior to both Dragons and phoenixes.

Those legends intertwine with the stories of the foundation of Koguryo, as some believed that Jumong's mother was impregnated by sunlight and gave birth to an egg. Some people believed back then that Jumong had been born with the power of Samjok-o or the protection of it. While the legends show little evidence of its existence, the writings of multiple sources and symbols of the three-legged bird found at Jumong's Tomb can prove otherwise.

- Yondung
- Spirit Guide

Very little is known about the three legged bird and very little could be found about it. So far, we could find the image of the 3 legged bird in Kugnae Tower arena battle rooms. Same symbol can also be found on Bringer Arena from Carnage of Riches.



As the legend suggest, the legend of the Samjok-o connects with the story of how Jumong was born. For those who don't know about Jumong, he was the father of King Yuri and probably father of Sagu too. He was King M'hul grandfather. So far it is not known where Jumong's tomb is located, but if anyone knows, it is probably MuHyul.

There isn't much known about Yondung. That's the only mention we could find of him/her. It's the third time the Kingdoms of the Winds hears from a Spirit Guide since the early days. First one was Eldridge who appeared just before the Shattering and disappeared around Yuri 70. Then second one was Abu, who appeared around Hyul 30 and turned out to be a villainous one, who Mug sacrificed to save us from. Now after 60 Hyuls another Spirit Guide seems to be sharing legends of the kingdoms again. Would that be a good thing or a bad thing? Only time will tell.

New NA staff and Thanksgiving event "Easter Eggs"
Posted by: Frenya -- 11:14 PM EST
   
Hiya,

I am very happy to announce that I have joined the Nexus Atlas news team as reporter and resident cartographer. These lands are always changing and new areas are always being discovered, I will do my very best to get these places mapped out accurately for ya. Maps are the core of Nexus Atlas after all.

In addition to that exciting news here are some fun "Easter Eggs" that were hidden in the recent/current Thanksgiving event with the privateers.


  • Quartermaster Blanchet says "we're going to need a bigger boat" a subtle reference to the movie Jaws, by chief Brody.


  • First Mate Gousqueton says "the mooncake is a lie" a twist on the popular phrase "the cake is a lie" from the game 'Portal'.


  • The Sailing Master Primaud has quite a few depending on how you answer him when he asks where he is. He will say either "I had a feeling we were not in Shilla anymore" or "Our home is the sea and there's no place like home" both Wizard of Oz references.

  • The Sailing Master also says "This is your fault. I'm going to kill you. All the mooncake is gone" as well as "You don't even care, do you?" some fun Portal 2 (video game) references.


  • Boatswain Mazin says "I hope they die of dysentery" hmm this one feels like a vague reference to the game Oregon Trail "You have died of dysentery"or perhaps I am way off in looking for Easter Eggs.

    Also, for those of you who noticed the name of the privateers is bolded and underlined? Well, that's because their names also hide easter eggs too. Blanchet, Gousqueton, Primaud and Mazin are names inspired by Planchet, Mousqueton, Grimaud and Bazin (shifting the first letter of each name) who were servants of the Musketeers in the novel by Alexandre Dumas. Mursketeers -> privateers, get the reference?

    Were you able to find more? Let us know!

    Till next time,

    Server Reset - Halloween Event Ends
    Posted by: Vini -- 8:41 AM EST
       
    Earlier this morning the Nexus servers were reset and removed both versions of Halloween event:
  • the trick or treat + costume collection quest
  • Kangsee from cemeteries + Changmu Town + Turtle Shell Cave

    This means that people can no longer enter Nagnang Haunted House nor visit the Road to Shilla anymore. However, the outside area of Nagnang Haunted House remained, as well as the Nagnang Gorge and Pae River. Hopefully they might end up becoming permanent additions.

    Also, it seems that Thanksgiving message now sends a thankful note instead of the token. Which has same spirit of thanking a person, but without the exp part.
    BOARD TITLE: Dream Weaver
    FROM: NexusTK DATE: 12/1
    SUBJECT: Quick Reset - Dec. 1st, 2017

    - Trick or Treat and Halloween event closed. (Some event item will be removed later on)

    - Thankful token has been replaced with Thankful note. Thankful note does not give out Exp. (Please see Wony's Rambling Thoughts post #178

    The Thanksgiving quests continue available so people who are aiming to become legendary turkey hunters 500+ can still work on their caged turkeys for a while longer.

    Nagnang by the sea
    Posted by: Vini -- 1:11 PM EST
       
    With the Shipwrecked crew event (Thanksgiving 2017)the community was able to explore more of the littoral by the Yellow Sea at southern limits of Nagnang. While the Nagnang Farms, Haunted House and main Shore were discovered during Halloween event, now three new areas can now be explored: the Nagnang Coastline, a longer part of Nagnang shore and Nagnang Secluded Beach. Check out the updated map scheme:

    Wild Wild Wilderness
    Posted by: Vini -- 4:00 PM EST
       
    Last Thursday the Wilderness between Koguryo and Buya has been revamped to a more modern and updated look and resembles much more what one would expect of a "Wilderness". Rumor is that this renovation was a combined effect of Druids' lunar festivals and Geomancers' tao mirrors, showing the true colors of the wilderness. Here's how the new wilderness (7.x) looks like:



    For reference here is how Wilderness (6.x) looked like until last week.

    Also, for reference here is how Wilderness (4.x) looked like originally. The new version seems like an updated version of the original one from Nexus 4.x era. Doesn't it?

    Just for reference, most places continue in their own coords. Gelapod moved to 107,017.
