New Position: Assistant Head Judge
Posted by: Vini -- 4:38 PM EST
   
A new position was announced today in justice system: Assistant Head Judge. The one chosen by Head Judge Teragg to be working as his right hand is Logorin. To those confused to what an assistant head judge would be, is like a primarch. Logorin will be able to help with most functions that only the Head Judge can do, but the judges will still be lead by Teragg himself.

Being a judge is a tiring position. It requires long hours of work, has to deal with many issues and has a lot of headaches. It's one of the most unpleasant positions to be in and it's hard for the good people who accept carrying such burden to suddenly become enemy of many people for doing what their job require him to do. Being Head Judge is just like that but in a larger scale. Let's hope this new assistant head judge position will help relief a bit of the pressure put on Teragg's shoulders daily.



Congratulations Logorin and good luck on your new position.

Halloween is here!
Posted by: Vini -- 8:32 PM EST
   
It's time for spooky creatures, crazy costumes and scaring your friends for fun. This year the kingdoms seem to have experienced the dark airs in most of the common places, like east gate Kugnae. These have been filled with skulls, spider webs and bones. The trees have lost their leaves and the feelings of fear have mixed with the fun of celebrating this time of the year.
Trick or treat is back with the common results that normally gives. Those willing to attempt for unique dyes as result for treat will have to remember that to be able to trick or treat they'll need to be wearing a full costume and go to the nearest inns.The x different combination of costumes can be easily obtained by slaying the spooky spirits which appeared everywhere in the kingdoms.


There are also dark airs coming from the forests of Kinung Town. It seems the Yon and Tae families are having trouble with ghosts. The "Curious" cat that appeared days ago in Kinung has moved to the Desolate Swamp. For those who are willing to venture into this sinister place, just follow the cat's track all the way in Forest of Elders (North of Kinung) to the southeast of the area.


It might be a good idea to bring a lantern as the haunted mansion of the alchemist seems to be a really dark place to walk around. Lanterns are easy to make, just need wood, paper, hot coal and beef all mixed together.
Inside the mansion there are plenty of puzzles and very little risk of death, but in case a tricky ghost does hit you, the "Curious" cat which is now inside the Faded Archives can assist you getting back on your feet. There's quite a few puzzles inside so probably you'll need to visit the cat sometime.

Here's a legend mark that some community members earned already:

It's not known if this legend mark is just a first step within the event or if it is the end of it. Time will tell.

Halloween Event Preview
Posted by: Vini -- 7:26 AM EST
   
Mug was kind enough to share with Nexus Atlas readers a preview of what's to come in tomorrow's event. Here's an image of the entrance to the Halloween event and as we can see, the cat in Kinung is involved.


One big thing I have to announce is that Kinung Council has kindly asked if Nexus Atlas could avoid posting a walkthrough this time. The walkthroughs of Kinung events were banned from in-game, but technically Nexus Atlas is still able to.
Yet, as they informed this event is unlike any other and posting a walkthrough would ruin the whole fun of the event and destroy the hard work put into bringing the event to community.

Here's what is posted about the event in Whispering Winds board:

Driven by the dissenting voice of his fellow Elder and guided by the encouraging meows of the cat he's come to know as Curious, the old man, Cheyn, has finally unearthed what appears to be the Alchemist's and Curious' home.

Hidden by a thick forest and glaring out over an impenetrable swamp, an unnervingly old house glowers across the landscape. Staring upon it for the first time, Cheyn, considers the dilapidated building, foolishly even considering for a moment if merely looking at it would make it fall down. As he ponders on it, the cat, tucked under his arm, starts squirming and meowing heavily.

After a time, Cheyn loosens his grip and Curious wriggles free and bolts toward the house. Cheyn looks on with astonishment, as with what must be much practice, the cat deftly makes its way across the thick swamp and toward the house in mere moments.

Once upon the doorstep, the cat turns around one last time to look directly at Cheyn. Curious rolls over slowly and meows back at Cheyn, in what looks like affectionate gratitude before casually entering the foreboding building.

The old man can't help but to release one momentary smile, but what of this house? The cat's origin has been found, but what mysteries still lie within this strange abode? Does it hold treasures or traps? Who will be bold enough to brave the tricks within and seek the secret of the Alchemist?

((Please keep in mind that Kinung is a strict Role play town. If you speak out of character you can be removed from the town.))

((Players will have two week to finish the quest. The event will run from Thursday, October 22, 2009 through Thursday, November 5, 2009.))

Enjoy tomorrow's event and happy halloween.

* Major update for Pegasus
* Minor fix for Merchant
* Major finishing touches for Halloween event that will begin the 22nd
* Minor update to the ground tile of the clan swords
* Minor fix for the Wintery kimono (name was misspelled an couldn't be banked, just take to any seamster or seamstress and ask them to unengrave it and it should bank.)
* Major fix so if you do Sublime ally it still counts as a Greater.

Special thanks to GM Mug for posting this list on Dream Weavers board.



There's also a new item available for purchase in Kruna shop since today's reset: gift pumpkin. The gift pumpkin gives random kruna items set and also a new bank slot. Quite similar to other items released on other special dates and can be given to other members of the community.

Disruption in Kinung!
Posted by: Living -- 7:17 PM EST
   
This evening, the village elders have reached an impasse in the interpretation of a small cat's recent presence in Kinung. Cheyn and Teikari, the elders of the Yon and Tae families, are in fierce contention and met outside the town hall with much of the community present and buzzing about.


Cheyn and Teikari get split support by community members.

So heated were the arguments that they ended tonight in a break of the truce between the two families! Is it possible that some of our foolhardiness in the treatment of our neighbors in the community recently in the mines may be spilling over into our friends in Kinung? We may have to act, and soon, to prevent further disruption in the peaceful town.

Recently, an eerily still wind has fallen on the sleepy town of Kinung. Several days ago, the villagers marveled at the ambition the community showed in their furthest excavation of the mines near the northern pass.

Strange and radiant diamonds have flooded the lands, and greedy merchants had hoarded precious materials for their creation and guarded their treasure with an iron fist.

Undead creatures appeared outside Kinung Town Hall and interrupted the discussions.

The villagers of Kinung saw this as a cruel awakening! Such malice, such greed was a rare sight indeed from the people who had brought the lot of them back to life. Hopefully, we can dispel this bad blood and restore peace between the two elders.

Pre-99 bugged diamonds
Posted by: Musoyen -- 10:23 PM EST
   
If you are attempting to create a pre-99 diamond (Jade/Forest) please make sure you have 50,000 coins on you before attempting to create it. The NPC says it only requires 30,000 coins, however, this is wrong. If you attempt to create the pre-99 diamond with only 30,000 coins it will take your items and NOT give you a diamond.

If this bug has happened to you please send a ticket and be specific.

The lonely cat in Kinung
Posted by: AkiKan -- 11:52 AM EST
   
Today a little cat named Curious showed up in Kinung. This is what Curious had to say.





Cheyn's reaction -

Greetings to all of you,

Tonight, the Councilors, Teikari and I were much blessed by the company of some wonderfully helpful citizens of the Three Kingdoms. These outstanding folks helped me unravel a few old memories and, with their aid, I managed to provide a little insight on our curious new feline friend.

I recalled to them a tale of my youth. One in which an old, pallid man came to visit the original Kinung, followed by curiously blue looking cat.

He appeared from the Forest of the Elders every so often. As a child, I had little contact with the man , but he clearly made a lasting impression on my parents and many other villagers.

I recall distinctly being told that I was not to approach him and stay well away from him. I recall my father talking about him to a friend, saying he also bought the strangest items. First hand, I can also tell he carried with him the oddest odour of burnt herbs. He also had the must repugnant green sludge on his boots.

The most curious thing about this cat, however, is that I sighted him over a hundred years ago!

How on earth a precious little fellow like that can survive so long is beyond me, but being a fellow that has been brought back to life myself, I know these things are possible.

If anyone, with any expertise in this area, could take a look at our little fellow and propose a theory of how he came to be dwelling in our land, I am certain Kinung would be most obliged for your aid. With your help and expertise, perhaps we will be a step closer to finding the cute little fellow his home.

Cheyn

New item: Craftings Bags
Posted by: Vini -- 6:30 AM EST
   
A new type of item has been released for the Kruna shop last thrusday and has proven to be quite useful: crafting bags. There's 6 different types of it, ore bag, metal bag, wool bag, ginko bag, cloth bag and amber bag.

Their purpose is simple. Each allows the owner to carry 5 batches of the crafting item at once, without having to deposit the item. This means citizens will be able to carry with 110 pieces of metal instead of just 22, or 150 Ginko wood, 125 wool, 500 amber or even 100 white amber at once.

Along with this release, there's quite dozen more new options available for halloween kruna items.

Lost Mines: Continuation (Part 2)
Posted by: Musoyen -- 6:40 PM EST
   
This is the walkthrough for the second part of the event. It is not complete, this post will be updated when it is finished.

Items you need:
3 Dry wood (Drop from 10 carat rabbit)
5 Straw (Drop from SMALL rabbit mobs)
10 Coal pieces (Mine for in LMs)
1 Wooden acorn (Drop from Dead watchmen (white zombie mobs))
18 Golden acorn (Drop from squirrels)
21 Silver acorn (Drop from squirrels)
8 Bronze acorn (Drop from squirrels)


1. Bring items to Hot Forges and walk up to a forge.

2. Bring the wooden acorn to the flame NEAR the forge to ignite it, you will receive "Burning acorn".

3. Take this to a forge and it will light the fire, wait about 10-15 minutes.

4. Walk up to forge again. It will ask you if you want to melt acorns, and then it prompts you for each separate amount of acorns. Enter these numbers... and then wait.

18 GOLDEN ACORN
21 SILVER ACORN
8 BRONZE ACORN

When you have placed in the right amount of acorns, you must wait 30 minutes at the forge for them to melt. Afterwards, when it is ready, it will take the mold from you, and you must wait an ADDITIONAL 30 minutes for the key to cool down.

5. Make sure you have your key mold on you. If so, you will receive a key. Take your brand new key to the Main gate and hunt leeches!

6. Leeches drop Leech juice which restores 33% of your vita and Leech goo. You can take the goo to Sithly and exchange it for items. One goo for 1 item.

Later on? There is a door at the end that says Storms. We assume that is where the big bosses are found.

Kinung Council Applications
Posted by: AllyGator -- 4:59 PM EST
   
Surround yourself with imagination and contribute your creativity to help role-play increase and prosper into the Kingdom of the Winds! Will the winds whisper the legend of your deeds forever? Do you wish to encourage the discovery of the new role-play town (Kinung), share your knowledge with others, and serve your kingdom? We seek you, who will remain true to the Nexus vision and its reason for existence. Such a position will require devotion, so should you have limited time, please do not apply.

The chosen players will become the Councilors of Kinung. They will regulate rules, politics and everything needed to promote role-playing. They will work with players on the literature, history, philosophy, biography of our heroes, and the lore of Nexus. They will work on painting, music, events, stories and poems, magic, politics, economics and much more! This is your chance to get involved in this new and exciting area of the game, with its own system. Get yourself involved in Kinung by overseeing and helping evolve a new society. Many adventures await you and you will make history. Unravel Kinung's mystery and help share its many unique aspects!

Rule Change: You may be a Kinung Councilor while holding another leadership position, but please be able to dedicate the necessary time to both.

# Those whom have received banishment or bear a current (red) jailing (on any character or any account) are not eligible.
# Applicants must be registered patrons.
# This position is, of course, reserved for role-players. Councilors will provide role-play for Kinung as well as the Nexus in general, therefore we require that all applicants role-play.

Should you have any inquiries, please contact
Daejang or Soldaris.

Please copy and paste the following questions and answer them all as best you can.

All answers must be sent to Daejang and Soldaris.

** Application **

Question 1: Which character do you play the most and would like to be a part of the town? (Please keep in mind that only ONE character can be used, even if you have multiple accounts)

Question 2: How many hours do you spend playing Nexus per week? Do you feel you will be able to devote enough time to this position to do a good job?

Question 3: If you have had any in-game positions on your characters (ex. Subpath or Clan leader, Minister, Carnage host, Judge, Subpath Guide, Clan Council, Tutor, etc) please list them. In-game positions will not determine the outcome of your possibility of being accepted.

Question 4: What are your feelings regarding Kruna items? How could you better incorporate them into Nexus?

Question 5: What role-playing events have you been involved in before?

Question 6: What are your thoughts on role-play and how we could increase it throughout the entire game?

Question 7: Why do you think you would make a good representative of the RP Town?

Question 8: Please give a brief background of the character you are applying on.

Question 9: The RP Town is a place where role-playing ideas may prosper. Please submit in few lines a briefing for a role-play event. Your idea must include already existing contents (i.e. no new event characters, maps or items).

Nagnang's newest official clan, Viper!

Last night, Thursday October 8th, 2009, was Viper's final night of probation. The final vote was positive and Viper was permitted to become an Official Clan of Nagnang. Viper started its journey almost a year ago and has grown tremendously, hoping to continue to grow as time goes on.

The current primogen, Arthias, wishes to say thank you to all those who have put in hours of hard work and sweat in to what Viper is today. It could not have been done alone.

Congratulations, Viper! You did it!

*Edit by Vini:

New (or old) Spy Elder
Posted by: Musoyen -- 7:34 PM EST
   

Elder Reiko


A shift in Spy has occurred today.

In May of this year, Misled was the Elder of Spy and stepped down, passing the position on to Reiko. Sometime there after, Reiko stepped down and passed the position back to Misled, who has now once again passed the position back to Reiko.

Thank you Misled for your time you have devoted to the Spy path as Elder and good luck again to Reiko.

New Elendhirin Primogen
Posted by: Musoyen -- 5:13 PM EST
   


A while ago, Primogen Chantrea of Elendhirin stepped down from her position within the clan and bestowed TygraStarr as her successor. We thank Chantrea for all she has done for the Elendhirin Clan in the last while, and congratulate TygraStarr on her ascension to Primogen.

Thank you to Pdlo for notifying us of this change.

Daime's stance on 3rd party usage
Posted by: Musoyen -- 4:28 PM EST
   
Earlier today Archon Daime posted on the community board stating his stance on third party program usage. To sum it up in one sentence: Don't be an imbecile and cheat, you will get caught. Don't forget that if you get banned in Nexus you will not be allowed to hold any position such as Archon, Judge, Elder or Primogen. It's just not worth it!

Using or promoting any third party programs for the purpose of gaining unfair advantage in Nexus is considered cheat/hack, and it will warrant punishment, including character/account banishment. We WILL be taking a more active stance on spotting out these cheaters in efforts to make all aspects of nexus more enjoyable for our players, this includes all carnage events as well as hunting grounds.

Two examples, but not limited to, of such cheats are,

- Using keyboard modifying programs which allow you to move faster.

- Using any keyboard macros other than the ones provided to you in the game.

Don't do it. It's unfair, ruins fun, and ruins Nexus. For those who think that using such cheats are fun, let me remind you that it would'nt be very fun to use them if you don't have a character. Don't risk it. It's not worth it.
