The largest Snowstorm hits the Kingdoms!
Posted by: koinu -- 4:15 PM EST

It’s Hyul 4, 5th Moon; Moments ago there was a large snow storm that swept through the kingdoms. With this large snowstorm the animals of the kingdoms helped decorate the lands. Christmas is coming soon, Santa is on his way; everyone just waits to see what goodies they'll receive that one fine winter day...

NOTE: With the reset, you cannot hand items and gold to others, you must use exchange now….Be careful and watch your back! There may be a snowball headed your way! Warriors are happy because Ingress works now without having to type the weapon name! Update: Ee san rogue ingress "Baekho's blade" no longer requires you to type in the weapon name!

Riddle #7 was solved, thanks in part to GM Mug posting two hints as to the requirements!

For Riddle #7 you need
- White headband (Sold in same place as Bandana etc)
- Fine cloth (5)

On to Riddle #8!

A recap for everyone who hasn't participated in the Quest yet:

In a land of death beyond our walls
This being neither swims nor crawls
With coloured hues so nice to wear
It's large enough for some to share
Delicious when it hits my tummy
Bring me something really yummy

Bird meat

A boring day of catch and throw
Can make you lazy, dont you know?
But after all is said and done
You can't sit down and eat just one
Buttered, baked or over hot coals
This dish is excellent with big rolls

10 Large fish

As a kid I hated this for dinner
Cause eating it will make you thinner
It can be seasoned with flair
It's all inthe way one prepare.
My wife, Mielu and I agree
To bring just one of each I need
Salt Block(1), Brassica(1)

Wisdom's food upon a fixture
Rooted is good in this mixture
A recipe that most homes use
Calls for the items that I do choose
Cooked and cut it is quite tasty
Now go and please try to be hasty
Flour (1), Water jug[20 sips](1), Apple (20)

Remember when you take a wife
You get her mother all your life
It's best to please them both you see
To make your simple house stress free
Her mother craves alot of scents
Or sense? Not sure of which presents
I'll leave that up to you my friend
Either way will blend or mend.

Dusk blossom(3), Greater tulip(5), Fallen star(2), Golden sunset(2), Fragile Rose(1)

Han Lee and I banter a lot.
Opinions traded on the spot.
His bark is much worse than his bite.
But he concedes when I am right.
Her father's quirks amuse Mielu
She loves him dearly through and through.
Now and then, he'll swizzle silly.
So he'll love his gift. Yes really!

Barbarian brew(5)

Mielu's sister has gone crazy
To her, past memories are hazy
Kinani floats with unseen wings
Weaves red scarves and softly sings
She lacks two things to bring her joy
One of which is not a toy
If we can keep her occupied
She'll stay in safely from outside

Fine cloth(5), White headband(1)

RIDDLE 8
Since Loh was just a tiny tot
he'd wander aimlessly a lot
Now her brother's tall and lean
and yearns for visions still unseen
The simple man has much to learn
with mental thoughts of which to burn
I see assistance from you, friend
to bring his restlessness to an end

These new items also make use of the new 'Item Shop Announcements' board on the bulletin system.

The World Walking Head Carnage Host
Posted by: Vini -- 4:51 PM EST

As it was posted on community board couple minutes ago by Archon Juste, there's a new Head Carnage host selected after the unfortunate happenings with the staff. A big suprise for some and a big relief as well for many, she's back, the one and only Worldwalker.

Woodlands Monster Page Released
Posted by: AllyGator -- 8:55 PM EST

Now you can find information you need about the updated Woodlands. The title of each section is a link to the map page. We still need solo, non-totem time experience for several monsters as well as drop information especially for Woodlands Lobster. We also need front and side view BMP screenshots for the new graphic of the Bear boss, Dhaulagiri.

We wish to thank a group of users who have contributed a great deal of this information:
Ace, BlackMob, Chifchi, Coolboyman, Euphoria, Forum Troll, Hanayuki, Kittie, linuxkiddy, Revery, TaiPatron, Voyce, and Zetae.

If you wish to add to this information please visit our forum thread, Woodlands Information.

New Head of Fox Hunts
Posted by: Nagnag -- 4:24 PM EST

As it was announced few hours ago in the community board, there's a new official Head Fox hunt host, despite all the passing of powers that have been going on lately. Archon Juste of Fox Hunt/Carnage has selected Fox host XPoetX to be the new head of the staff and also corrected the mistakes done during the power transitions yesterday.


The Nexus Atlas Staff would like to congratulate Head Fox Hunt Host xPoetx in his new position and wish him good luck in restoring such popular game to its glory.

Resolution to Subpath Problems has been Issued.
Posted by: AllyGator -- 10:55 PM EST

As posted by Archon Dallum on all Subpath boards:



Elder Removal: (new rule)
In the case where there are serious complaints about an Elder your SP archon will look into the issue and take necessary action, if a new Elder is needed then a path vote will be taken by the path (any path member) votes to be sent to your SP archon. No new members at this time will be added to path

Removing inactive walkers: (New rule)
The Elder must send any inactive walker a warning letter one month prior to removal to give said walker a chance to become active.

If a vote is required for a new Elder: (New rule)
If you were active in your path and removed without proper warning you will also have vote.



A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR IN CHIEF
It is my honest opinion that the discussion both on the Community Board, and on the NexusForums have helped to reach these new rules, to better throw balance to the power of Elders of the Subpaths.

With enough voices, even the hardest of hearing will be able to detect your presence. If you sense an injustice, or simply wish to make a change, make your voice heard. A mind unopened is a gateway to be explored.

Power to the players of NexusTK: Kingdom of the Winds!

Carnage Corruption
Posted by: Conro -- 4:54 PM EST

As of recent, a rift has occured in the Carnage department, with two major heads being removed from power.

Bloodlust head Sindella was charged with favourtism of players during Bloodlusts, and was stripped of power after an incident of opening Carnage Doors for a fellow friend after they had been closed by another host.
Sindella seems to have her hosting powers back now, despite the disagreement of all the head divisions who caught her breaking host rules and might become the new head carnage host.

Carnage Department Head, Dethsgift, was of recent, relieved of her duties as Carnage Department Head after corruption charges against her were proven true.
Charged with stealing millions from the Carnage Departments bank character, Dethsgift was jailed for 'Other Serious Crimes' by the Archon of Fox Hunt/Carnage Juste a day after the investigation took place.
A investigation has yet to take place as to the news of this information, and how long it has been kept underwraps.

Paired with charges of Corruption in the Fox Hunt ranks -- where Dochmur is accused of transfering Head Host power to an alternate of his in order to retain the rights as Head Host -- the community itself is questioning those given power to run these events.

These recent events, as well as past occurances, raise an important question about the use of outside programs such as Ventrilo and instant messaging services to keep dark deals out of the publics eye, and more importantly for the criminals, out of the view of NexusTK logs. While these programs are undoubtly essential in todays game play, it casts serious doubt on allowing friends to work with friends in an enviroment which encompasses the entire player base.

A discussion thread has been opened on NexusForums to discuss these recent events, as well as post offenses by Department heads and Hosts.

It is the hope of the Community that a consensus can be reached about job preformance in these duties.

Mountain's champion
Posted by: Conro -- 1:02 AM EST

Out of sheer dumb luck (ok, more like hours spent fighting this boss over and over), I finally managed a drop myself from the Woodland caves.

The Sam san Polar Bear cave drops it's own version of the Bear's Promise, named Mountain's champion.



The graphic looks like a 'powered up' Bear's promise, with gold hues and a blue aura about it.



The item is restricted to Sam san+ use only.

I'd like to also say Thank you to everyone who has shared information about the statistics and graphics of the new items. It's your help which makes NexusAtlas' Databases grow!

Server reset changes
Posted by: Vini -- 2:45 PM EST

A server reset just happened in the lands of Nexus. So far there has been no official posting by Mug about what changes were brought to the realms, but people could already notice a new board called Item shop announcements and also that Haengsa moved location again which means he has a new challenge for this month.



After a while, GM Mug posted on Dream Weaver's board and the Nexus Official Site the following list of changes brought by reset:
The Nexus servers were reset with the following changes:

Haengsa told us he has a new challenge for you.

New Item Shop Announcements board is now located on your "B" button.

Clan, Army & Ministry additions and fixes:
Minor update for Buyan Army Corvax is now Crovax.


The new board seems to be empty for now. The accessories bought from Saeroun in Nagnang west (049 089) can all be dropped. This includes, Little red mantle, blue necklace, headbands and bandannas.

Send in Information about Woodlands Creatures
Posted by: AllyGator -- 12:18 PM EST

For two days several of you have been contributing information about the revised Woodlands Caves. Thanks go out to Forum Troll, linuxkiddy, Euphoria, Revery, and Hanayuki who have allowed us to almost complete the information for Woodlands Dog. [I don't use the term "Ancient Ruins" because that is just one room in the Woodlands Dog Cave.]

If you have information about which creature drops what item, attacks, spells and solo non-totem experience please visit this FORUM LINK. You'll need to post an image to verify the information!

Each of the main pages for the Woodlands caves has been updated with the latest information as well as the armor pages (for now that is only hand items). When we have as much information as possible I'll make a Woodlands Monster page. Woodlands Dog is the most complete page for now so if you wish to see how that information is shown click the MAP LINK. Each map page has all of the known drop items listed separately until we know where to put them.

Dhaulagiri, which means 'Great White Mountain', has fallen to the Mage Euphoria. Checking the remains, Euphoria found a Bear's promise, a white band which can be worn on the hands.





This item was unearthed in the Frozen Tundra.

Thanks Euphoria for sharing this information!

Weary Hunters
Posted by: AllyGator -- 5:28 AM EST

Quite a large group congregating at Buya South Gate last night. They seemed to be mostly weary hunters but perhaps a few were there to see the newly beheaded TediAvenger! Several there was enjoying his headless dancing moves. I think it had more to do with sheer exhaustion from a hard day's hunt.

Aiy-Ary charm unearthed
Posted by: Conro -- 9:29 PM EST

Hunting in the Woodlands
Posted by: Vini -- 1:09 PM EST

The woodlands seem no longer to be leeching caves and may now serve real purpose of hunting. Their bosses finally drop interesting items, but all of this has a price. The levels to enter each cave raised and the waters around woodlands have been poluted by Blight.

Here's the official post about it found on Nexustk.com:

Although the Mongols were defeated their attack served its purpose. General Blight of Nagnang has been busy investigating the Woodlands in the aftermath of the Mongol invasion. He gathered up as many vile vials as he could after the invasion and was seen pouring them into the water of the lands. Discarded vials that once contained this potent poison lie scattered across the rugged terrain. The waters of the still land have been poisoned! Even worse, the monsters that inhabit the Woodlands have grown much stronger. General Blight wonders if anyone would dare to brave the stronger creatures.

General Blight speaks out:

Nagnang is my beloved! I will never stand here and listen to such arrogance. How dare you question my loyalty. My obedience is to her, only her and she commands me firm with an iron fist. You people have grown soft, unattached to her scarred body of settlement and the mediocrity of peace and a combined truce. No peace will be in this land while the idiots fight over her body to make root, no peace as they drink from her streams and fill their bellies on her bountiful fruits and vegetables.

The Mongols thought they could come to my Nagnang and taint her. HA! They fell to their own blades, dance of death. How dare they try to rob her beauty! I understood all to well. The Mongols accomplishment was only a further rooting of one already in place. Quickly they came to burrow themselves in my Nagnang and the idiots that sit aimlessly around as the politics of the kingdom battle with themselves are but an illness, slowly eating away at her...

But no longer will they eat and no longer will they drink for the Woodlands is nobodies land anymore. It belongs to her once more! I doubted her wise whispers in my ears to stir the poisons on to her skin but then clarity within my troubled mind. For it awoke the ancients that lay dormant as there lesser guardians protected the lands. They had guarded well and they will be rewarded by her affections, but now the ancestral line has awoken and all shall fear Nagnangs true champions.

She will protect herself against you all, the parasites eating her from within and you will learn fear, and you will learn to speak her name only in the cold whispers that grant you as you cross over into the nether world.

Enjoy your settlements, enjoy her while you can... she is no longer yours. She is mine and mine alone.

General Blight
"Father of Nagnang"


((The woodlands area has been upgraded with stronger monsters that give much more experience. In addition there are many new items to be found, including some very rare items. This is a permanent addition to NexusTK. We expect to have many more to come!))

  • Woodlands
    Posted by: Nussan -- 8:52 AM EST

    With the reset this morning, the Woodlands area (located at Nagnang's west gate) moved to the Kugnae server. However, it was later changed back to Nagnang.

    It also seems like the level requirement changed on the Woodlands caves. Bear cave and the Desert cave have 4 levels, while the Rabbit cave seems to be avaliable for everyone above level 95, and Dog cave possibly for Il san and higher. Snake/Water cave requirement still isn't known to me.

    Also, the area around Snake/Water cave (101, 148) is surrounded with doors which you have to open and close to reach the cave. Don't get stuck!

    The Gelapod is Hungry!
    Posted by: AllyGator -- 7:21 AM EST

    With the reset Valexa, Tain and Naypoet found that the Gelapod is starving! He's a very picky eater and turns down almost everything you try to feed him. If you look at him it says he has a large, round mouth and two bulbous eyes. It is ugly, disgusting, covered in a noxious slime and exudes a horrible smell. God only knows why it thinks we'd want to feed it and be picky too! He only wants to eat items from the cash shop. Yes he is a shredder for those lovely items you spent your Kruna on. Now you have a way to clear your inventory! Unfortunately he will not return any Kruna to you or give you any other items in exchange.

    If you want to discuss this visit this LINK in the forums.



    Logon bug is fixed!
    Posted by: AllyGator -- 6:37 AM EST

    I managed to stay up longer than the bug! All is restored and hopefully stays that way. Thanks to KRU for working through the night. The Invasion of the Noobs is over.

    Login Bug
    Posted by: Nagnag -- 2:14 AM EST

    Just now there has been an issue with many people logging onto Nexus, saying their free trial has expired. This unfortunate bug has happened in the past, so do not think you're the only one that it is happening to. Do not fear, I'm sure it will be fixed shortly.



    The same thing happened to me yesterday around 4:00am CST. I was able to log in about ten minutes later so there's no need to go to sleep just yet! - Rachel

    This bug is taking a lot longer than a few minutes to clear up. If you are logged on or manage to get logged on, do not log off or change characters. You will not be able to log on again. Many players are calling this period the "Invasion of the Noobs"! - AllyGator

    Gelapod..?
    Posted by: KarmaliZe -- 12:44 PM EST

    At 12:25pm (EST), an NPC was located in the Wilderness sheep field (128,120).

    The NPC name is Gelapod. He is a greenish color and looks like a Tako from the lower level Woodlands area.


    So far, the NPC hasn't responded to any voice commands. Many people are beginning to gather to try and trigger a response!

    You can see the Forums topic on this news here; The Gelapod

    Thank you Vernon and Rowain for all of this information!


    More to come, stay tuned!

    Experience back to normal
    Posted by: Vini -- 9:35 AM EST

    It was good while it lasted. After 4 days of experience bonus in all aspects of the lands of Nexus, with the reset that happened few minutes ago, the experience gain went back to normal.

    The hopes from people now is that the Wisdom Star effect may be happening more often. The hunts won't be so good now as they were, hopefully a Thanks giving event will coming to help people overcome the missing of Wisdom star.

    Wisdom star bonus changes again
    Posted by: Vini -- 11:18 AM EST

    As the time passes, the power of the Wisdom star seems to be fading out and the experience gained starts getting back to normal. From the 100% that was yesterday, now the experience increase is of 50%. That's not as good as the hunters found yesterday, but at least there is still bonus experience.

    From now on, who will care for eclipes, people will just want to know when will be the next Wisdom star.

    - Go to 'NexusTK'
    - Select '9.95/1000 Kruna
    - Finish payment as you would to buy a coupon to register.

    To add the Kruna to your account

    - Go to the Kruna Account page
    - Go to 'Recharge Kruna'
    - Enter your Coupon which will be mailed to your EMail
    - Process it.

    Auto-Renewal Accounts start with 150 Kruna, while regular renewal accounts start with 100. I believe that this means that Auto-Renewal accounts will receive 50 Kruna every month. - Rachel

    Wisdom Star Double Exp
    Posted by: Vini -- 11:39 AM EST

    During the morning there was another reset which resulted in another experience bonus in all aspects of Nexus lands. This time the Wisdom Star is on it's strongest form so the increase was of 100% (2x experience). Enjoy your hunting and experience gathering and let's hope that tomorrow some might still feel the effects of the Wisdom star fading away.

    Also, in totem time it's confirmed that the increase of experience is of 110%, as the regular increase is of 5% during those times.

    Kruna Preview?
    Posted by: Rachel -- 7:44 AM EST

    It isn't here yet, but I did notice a few changes to the user agreement.


    Ownership of Kru Item Shop Assets:
    Kru Interactive retains exclusive ownership of all items, assets, and other intellectual property displayed in the Kru Item Shop. The payment using Kru Money (a.k.a Kruna) for the items will grant you a limited time usage of the items you checked out. Kru Interactive will not reimburse or refund any items claimed lost, stolen, traded, or in any way transferred to another player. All items licensed through the Item Shop will automatically be reverted back to Kru Interactive once the limited time is up or upon termination of the account, whichever comes first.



    It could just be a legal protection for the company, but goods purcharsed from the item shop may decay after a certain period of time. I suggest taking a good look at the terms before making your purchases today.

    The agreement also mentions that the items may be transferable from player to player, but this doesn't mean they won't be bonded to a player. (Hopefully they are, because we don't want people to make millions in the game just because they have a large bank account in real life)

    That's all for now, expect some updates as soon as Kru sets things in motion!

    The King outside his palace
    Posted by: KarmaliZe -- 12:00 AM EST

    At about 10:15pm (EST), King Mhul was spotted at the northern gates of Kugnae. Upon arriving, many others began to join in, chatting with the king. Some even asked some questions.

    About 11:20pm (EST), The King attended a wedding of two defenders of Koguryo - Ninked and Mesocute from Oceana clan. The wedding performed by Shaman Ijimeru was not only blessed by their friends and family, but as well by their primogen and the very own King. A royal blessed wedding is a big and rare honor. Congratulations to both of them in their marriage.



    After the wedding, the people were invited to Oceana Eden to play a joint game between the clan and the shamans. The "Sea Treasure robbers" as it was called did not count with talismans and grave robbers marks like the usual ones of shamans do, but have some great other prizes captured by the ones who defeated the treasure robbers.



    Mhul just seemed to be visiting the people of his fine lands. Such a great thing for a king to do. Even though the occasional pesimist were present, the king maintained his maturity and managed to inspire happiness in the lands. Perhaps the King is thinking of doing something special....

    Only time will tell...

    P.S. I posted some more screenshots here in Nexus Forums: ~Mhuls Visit~ For those of you who wish to see some of the events. Enjoy.

    *Edit: Vini added some images to compose the content as well.

    A Faint White Light...
    Posted by: KarmaliZe -- 11:04 AM EST

    Just now, the servers were reset in the lands. Before they were reset, the shouts rang out in all the lands. A message for all to see;

    "A faint white light shines in the northern sky"

    Upon reentry into the winds, mass histeria spread throughout the kingdoms... Experience had been LOWERED.

    Halloween costumes have been removed.

    After about 5 minutes, tons of sages and, lots of complaints.

    The servers were reset again...

    Sages rang out through the kingdoms, an INCREASE in experience has been added! As of right now, the "bonus" is a 32% increase in experience. Thank you Vini!

    It has been confirmed. Totem time increase is 58.4%. Wow! Thank you SilentS for figuring this out!

    Enjoy the news!

    More updates to come as they occur!

    From the Cornershop to the Main Market
    Posted by: Conro -- 5:23 PM EST

    As Posted on the NexusTK.com website.

    KRU Interactive will soon be opening the new NexusTK Item Shop! On Monday, November 6th, the NexusTK Item Shop will be open for use by registered players of NexusTK. The NexusTK Item Shop will start with a small collection of wacky accessories, but will quickly expand to offer a host of unique decorative items. Customize your character like never before! The NexusTK Item Shop will add a whole new dimension of fun!

    Items from the Item Shop are obtained by exchanging Kruna (the new Kru currency) that you can earn or buy. You can earn or buy Kruna in several ways. Special Kruna coupons will be available from the Coupon Shop. Autorenewal accounts will receive a small allotment of Kruna each month. Big amounts of Kruna will be given out regularly as prizes for in-game events! In addition, all NexusTK Accounts that are registered on November 6th will receive a modest amount of Kruna, so make certain you are registered by November 6th!

    To mark the occasion of this momentous day, November 6th will have a special event running in-game. The return of the Wisdom Star:


    "King MuHyul's astrology and alchemy advisor has heralded the return of the Wisdom Star. In one moon's time, the three celestial minors will be in alignment and the Wisdom Star will wake from its slumber, bathing us all in its pure light. The light of the Wisdom Star will sharpen your wits and make your senses keener, allowing you to learn more. Our greatest achivements have come during the days of the Wisdom Star. Let us all rejoice at its return!"

    ***The Wisdom Star doubles the experience you recieve. As quoted by kru on NexusForums...

    Its a exp bonus.

    We used it in Dark Ages, and it was supposed to be the reason behind the previous ones in Nexus, but I guess it wasn't mentioned.


    Strange Messages?
    Posted by: Conro -- 5:00 PM EST


    Sspy recently had some strange messages appear to him while resting in Haeng's tavern, just outside of Arctic Village.

    Four simple words were spoke to him, (displaying in the side status box) in the same manner that the spirit's spoke to members of the community before Yu Ryang Village was revealed.

    knowing
    moon
    moment
    acute

    It is unknown at the moment what this could mean, but with enough community envolvement, perhaps sense can be made of it.



    If anyone else experiences this, please let NexusAtlas and the Community know!

    Thank you to Sspy for submitting this information to me!

    Server Reset today
    Posted by: Vini -- 1:56 PM EST

    The nexus servers were reset just now. Here's a short unofficial list of changes brought by it:
  • Yu Ryang village is closed and the items from there are gone.

  • The ghosts roaming the lands are all gone.

  • The halloween costumes are still around but trick or treat won't work anymore.

    The Tree of Reflections also grew a bit more, hopefully it will reach it's original size soon.
