All the news that's fit to print
Posted by: Conro -- 10:51 PM EST


With the recent reset yesterday afternoon, a few new things have appeared, mainly a new addition for the player controled subpaths, and the 'discovery' of a new weapon, the Ceremonial blade.


The inside of the Subpath Meeting Room, which can be accessed by all Subpath members via warps in their respective halls


Yogeshi weilding the Ceremonial blade

Talks of the Ceremonial blade have been rampant on the Black Market, with possible deals being made for it's ownership. It's rumored it is a drop in the Vortex, but it doesn't seem to fit the structure of 'Minor-Light-[Ee san]-Heavy', unless, of course, no prefix is for Ee san only.

As more is reported about both these additions, we will be sure to keep you updated!

Shining weapon from the Vortex
Posted by: Conro -- 4:17 PM EST

Scotsman and Choko have recently unearthed a new weapon from the Wind Tribe, the Spectral leaf


A picture of Scotsman sporting his new find


Light Spectral leaf
Durability : 160000/160000
AC : -3, Hit : 3, Damage : 3
Small damage 120m240
Large damage 120m240
Vitality increase: 10000
Mana incrase: 1000
Might : 3

This is one of the first of the 'Light' versions of weapon drops. The order apparently goes Minor - Light - [Ee san name] - Heavy.

Perhaps another round of items has been released? Time will tell!

Druid Rule Shift And Confusion
Posted by: HealingLight -- 5:36 PM EST

Due to some recent confusion Druid Elder Supply has asked me to post the following letter from her to the community,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Dear Community,


We come to you to announce that the Druid Subpath has been through some changes concerning PK rules and we would like to share them with you to avoid any conflicts and misunderstanding in the future.

We consider that, as member of this community, all Druids have the right to enjoy this place as anyone else, respecting the involved players and keeping the Druid they roleplay aside from the authorized PK areas. If you happen to meet a druid PK'ing in Sire Pit, remember he can have fun as much as you can. If you can be there, he can too. Try enjoy this moment instead of seek fight and hate.

1- All Druids can go to Sire Pit and/or Stone pit and PK as much as
they want. Carnages such as Riches and BloodLust are also OOC
(out of character)

2- Fox Hunt and Elixir are IC (In character)

3- Nexus laws apply to all druids. If any of them break a Nexus
law they can face dismissal. If a community member has a law
problem with a Druid inside OOC PK place, I suggest you to go to
Justice board and report it. Druids are players like anyone else and
must abide all Nexus rules/laws like we all must. Keep that in mind.

4- Druid rules on respect still apply. OOC PK'ing in Sire Pit does not
give any Druid license to go act a fool, or be rude to anyone.

5- Druids are not allowed to ever kill or help to kill another Druid
(unless agreed on by the druids involved). It means, a Druid cannot
scourge, zap, retribution or use any attack spell toward another
Druid.

6-Vale is NO PK - It means, no Druid can go to Vale for PK for any
reason. There is no excuse. And it is absolute.


Supply Avenable Harbondia
Druid Elder
-Croi As An Draoi-
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope that this solves any problems that have been going on reciently

Tri-Kingdom Peace Treaty Signed
Posted by: Sailortaurus -- 7:49 PM EST

Treaty ushers in a new era of peace and prosperity


Prince Kija of Nagnang, Princess Lasahn of Buya, and Prince-Regent M'hul of Koguryo, supported by the Council of Kingdom Relations, make ready to sign the Tri-Kingdom Peace Treaty.

WILDERNESS -- This morning, at the Great Tree in the north of the wilderness, a treaty of peace between the Kingdom of Koguryo, the Empire of Buya, and the Principality of Nagnang was signed. Each sovereign expressed pride at being present at this historic occasion. This event was the culmination of the previous days of celebration, in which the talents of the people of the Three Kingdoms were showcased. "We stand united against all threats... in liberty and equality," declared Prince Kija of Nagnang.


The peace treaty scroll is unfurled.

The skies cleared with the dawning of the sun over Mt. Taebaek, surely a favourable omen on this auspicious day. Prince-Regent M'hul of Koguryo was the first to step forward and sign the treaty with a flourish. "We have come here this day to formalize the Tri-Kingdom Peace Treaty. I would like to take this time to thank all the Ambassadors and Assistant Ambassadors for working hard. Without the many months of hard work, this treaty would have never come about. I am proud to sign this treaty for the Kingdom of Koguryo. King Yuri has given his blessing upon this treaty."

Next, Princess Lasahn appended her signature to the document. "From what is stated here, the three alliances of the Kingdom of the Winds will join in unison, hand in hand, against the evils that threaten not one existence, but all entities that breathe life. This treaty was created in hopes of tightening the bond the Three Kingdoms have had over the times we were challenged by forces that sought to destroy our peace. I speak of Sagu, Johaih, LinSkrae, and all those who followed him... the Zibong. No longer shall we be faltered by their deceit. With this treaty, we will fight against all evil and preserve the peace that all of you deserve. And so shall it be... a mark of history. I, Princess Lasahn Senshi, devote myself to you, my people, and to you, my alliances."


Prince Kija pensively examines the peace treaty.

The atmosphere became tense as Prince Kija of Nagnang stepped forward to sign the treaty. "Ever since the gates of Nagnang were opened, my people have been divided. Some may even consider themselves not my people... Nonetheless, I have done what I thought best to bring us into the future. Countries in isolation die in isolation. I want to reassure my people that in doing this, we do not forfeit our identity." After finely examining the treaty, he said, "For mutual protection, for liberty and equality for all people, for the glory of our kingdoms!"

Amid prayers, tears, jeers, and cheers, the sovereigns signed the momentous treaty in the shade of the Great Tree. Copies were made and circulated to the sovereigns.


LunaStarling, representing Koguryo, invites the citizens to celebrate.

Archdruid LunaStarling, from the Koguryan delegation, invited the citizens to join with the Council of Kingdom Relations to "dance in joy together as people united in peace" as the Samguk moves forward together to enjoy a new era of prosperity.


As the barricades are dismantled, the gathered crowd joins together in celebration.

Tri-Kingdom Ceremony Opens!
Posted by: Sailortaurus -- 8:00 PM EST

Celebration of peace, prosperity, and unity sweeps the Samguk


Royals, ministers, ambassadors, and delegates from the Three Kingdoms gather at the Great Tree.

WILDERNESS -- In a ceremony this evening at the Great Tree in the wilderness, the Tri-Kingdom Peace Treaty Celebration officially commenced. Though the weather was inclement, the spirit of the evening could not be extinguished. This marked the start of a five-day series of events in the name of peace, slated to culminate with the signing of a peace treaty between the Kingdom of Koguryo, the Empire of Buya, and the Principality of Nagnang. In conjunction with the respective nations' ministries and royal courts, the Council of Kingdom Relations organized this gathering on neutral soil. Noticeably absent, however, was Prince Kija of Nagnang. He was represented instead by Prime Minister Nayuki, who expressed the desire to "go forward with united strength" on behalf of her sovereign.


Princess Lasahn takes centre stage to commence the ceremony.

Princess Lasahn of Buya cited the necessity of this treaty, recalling times of strife when the kingdoms were faced with the evils of Johaih and Sagu from years past. "Together the three kingdoms will stand tall, with our alliances of whom do not consider themselves city folk, and preserve this beatitude of peace and prosperity."

Lady Jesuil, Ambassador of Buya, referred to the occupation of Nagnang and the assault against her nation launched by Johaih as the impetus for the drafting of the peace treaty. She issued a wish for the kingdoms to essentially help each other to realize their collective potential. "We began this knowing that we are weak standing as one, but that we are strongest standing together, side by side, neighbour by neighbour." The ambassador spoke to the criticism of this treaty by likening it to a butterfly ready to flourish.

Prince-Regent M'hul invited all to join in the "days of fun and events to bring the treaty to full force." Lady LunaStarling, from Koguryo's delegation to the Council of Kingdom Relations, spoke of unity in the name of peace, with the citizens of the kingdoms brought together "under one banner."


Minister Castaspella of Buya sings her anthem of Buya.

Subsequently, in a grand presentation, the anthems of Buya and Koguryo were sung before the gathered crowd by Minister Castaspella and Lord Master Musician Sailortaurus, respectively.

Details about the three nations' events during the days of celebration can be found on the Community Events board.

More on the Servers bug
Posted by: Vini -- 10:13 AM EST

After this servers reset/crash it was noticed that all the Santa Suits, caps and every other Christmas items were once again removed like done every year.

As reported by MistPrince there's a bug where clan members have been all kicked from their clans. Archon Joomi has just saged about it, confirming it's just a bug and it will be fixed as soon as they can.

Seems the bug has affected all members of most clans and armies, including primogens and generals.
There are still a few people who remained in their clans/armies thanks to Neocloud for letting me know that.

No need to worry since it will be fixed soon as it was said.

News Functional
Posted by: TSWolf -- 6:27 PM EST

I just wanted to ease all concerns about the news being functional. The news IS functional, it just seems that there is little to report on the Nexus at the moment.

So rest assured, we know when it goes blank =)
