New leaderships in the kingdoms
Posted by: Vini -- 2:13 PM EST

In the past few days quite a few leadership changes have been happening in the lands of nexus, specially clan-wise. Yesterday the long lasting founder of the Pegasus clan, Kujek, has announced his step down and that gave end to the era of the last clan without even changing primogens. To replace Kujek, he chose Creature, who he hopes tha will do even a better job than he did.

The changes in Nagnang also happened in the army. In the 19th, Prince Kija also announced the election of the new General Adragonsclaw of Nagnang Army to replace the missing Chill. In Buya, Primogeness Rhianwyn of Elendhirin also took a temporary leave on 17th and passed the powers to Charity once again.

The Nexus atlas would like to congratulate Primogen Creature, Primogeness Charity and General Adragonsclaw in their new achievements and thank Kujek, Chill and Rhianwyn for the work they've done for the nexus lands in the past months.

One Post, Several Topics!
Posted by: Rachel -- 10:11 AM EST

If you wish to win a million coins in Conro's contest, you will need a NexusForums account. Since registration is slightly more complicated than in the past, I put up this post to explain registration.

We noticed that there haven't been very many problems at NexusForums in the last year, so as either a belated Christmas gift or early New Year's Gift there are a few changes in the works.

Joining the Citizens group now takes only half as many posts as in the past. Several of you will notice a promotion with just one more post. There will also be a Nobles group that many of you already qualify for. The specifics may be changed and these groups don't offer too many benefits, but I think they're a nice addition and hope that you do too!

Please be aware that anyone who is posting just to be promoted to the next group will have their post counts reduced to zero. There are several new topics every single day that you can make meaningful posts on!

..even more NexusForums news!

If you would like a board for your Subpath, Clan, or Tribe.. I am taking applications once again. These are private boards that only you will have the password to access. To get your own board, please PM me on NexusForums with the following:

-Subpath/Clan/Tribe name
-A list of 25 members matched to their NexusForums account name.
-Names of up to 2 Guides/Council members who will assist the Elder/Primogen in moderating the board.
-A short description (about 2-3 sentences) about your group.
-A link to your group's official website.
(Optional) - Your AIM screenname for easier contact
(Optional) - A preferred password

Just one last small thing! Yesterday, I went for the first time to go see the KSG Rogue Tournament, which I'm told was the first one in about three months. I didn't see any posts detailing the results of all the matches, but I did catch the name of one winner!

Posted by: Conro -- 1:49 PM EST

As stated in the previous news item, NexusAtlas is hosting a 'Who I would give a Million coins' contest on NexusForums.

The rules are simple, select ONE person from NexusTK you wish to see start the New Year off right. The reasons can be anything. The entry voted best by the NexusAtlas staff will have TWO Million-Coin checks sent out: one to whom you wish blessings on, and one for yourself for your story!

Merry Christmas!
Posted by: Conro -- 12:05 AM EST

Merry Christmas from the Staff at NexusAtlas!

My apologies for the delay on the contests. Starting December 26th (Tuesday), I will have our contests posted on the main page as well as NexusAtlas!

For those of you looking for a head start, the first contest is a Two-Million coin give away.

It's simple! The New Year is a time for change. Some look back and can say they've done well, while others may look forward to rising from the ashes of the past.
Write a simple story about a friend or stranger in Nexus and why you think they'd deserve a 1,000,000 coin prize to help kick off their New Year. Perhaps they've made you smile, or maybe you want to help someone out of a rut but don't have the ability to do it yourself.

Each entry will be judged by the NexusAtlas staff, and a winner will be picked. The winning entry will have a 1,000,000 check sent to the player they wish to see have a kick-start to their New Year. The winner will also find a cool 1,000,000 check in their mailbox as well!

A NexusForums thread will be created on TUESDAY, but you are free to start your drafts now!

This specific contest will end on January 1st, 2007, so don't delay!

New Patch!
Posted by: Rachel -- 5:08 PM EST

Mug's DreamWeaver post shares the details:

The Nexus servers were reset with the following changes:

Wrap a gift for someone special.

Girls can now find a special santa dress.

Item shop updates:
Anyone who is unable to deposit an item shop item can now visit the nearest tailor. They will help correct your item name by un-engraving the wrong name. Free of charge. Please keep in mind this only works for item shop items.

We fixed errors that cause some players to crash.

Clan banks were fixed to remove any extra empty spaces.

Setup for Santa M'hul

Clan, Army, Ministry and Tutor additions and fixes:
Updates for Tutors
Minor fix for Nagnang Ministry

Subpath additions and fixes:
Minor change for Do
Minor change for Merchant
Minor change for Chongun
Minor change for Barbarian
Updates for Druid
Updates for Rangers

To wrap a gift, buy colored paper and a ribbon from the messenger for the price of 10 coins each and put the item that you want to wrap into your inventory slot "a".

Kru summoned an NPC at East Kugnae who will sell you colognes. Apparently there was a reset or crash at some point and the NPC is now gone, but we might see some similar ones tomorrow while waiting in line for Santa Mhul. (Thanks to JuJakMan for the update!)

Sorry for not getting the Santa Dress picture up a bit sooner, Kru's appearance slowed that down a bit. Here is the Santa dress that is now droping in the Winter Wonderland:

Christmas in Koguryo
Posted by: Vini -- 10:01 AM EST

The days of joy and friendship have arrived once again in the nexus lands. Amidst snow and dreams there are those who can say that it is Christmas in Koguryo already. Today, the Koguryo Royal Ministry alongside with the Royal Army and the six Clans of the kingdom will start celebrating a whole week with events and a lot of fun for the community to enjoy.

Everyone is invited to join the festives that begins today, Monday, December 18th and goes through Friday, December 22nd. It is expected of course that community will remain with a good behavior at all times respecting the people who have taken their time to make these holidays more fun, bypassing that may result in such invitation being lifted.

Here's the locations of events given by each of the Kogurian clans and organizations:

Bear - Victory Square
Destiny - King MuHyul's Jeongwon 17/65
Enigma - Victory Square 60/68
Oceana - Victory Square
SunMoon - Victory Square 11/52
Tiger - Victory Square and Jeongwon - Various
Koguryo Army - Victory Square
Royal Ministry - Victory Square 48/54

Schedule of events and celebrations can be found in the community board posted by various people during the whole week. Just keep an eye there and find out when and where there will be an event. The doors to both areas of Victory Square and Jeongwon will open later today and can be entered through the eastern doors of the Koguryo Palace Courtyard. Anyone who also wish to hold events are free to use any booth that isn't previously taken as listed above.

On Saturday 23rd there is also a very expected event coming. Once again it is time for the Santa Mhul to present all people around the kingdoms with his gifts. More information about this specific and well expected event of Christmas in Koguryo will be posted on the day of its realization.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Monthly Kruna added to Auto-renewal
Posted by: Vini -- 11:21 AM EST

Yesterday, all auto-renewal accounts were rewarded with their monthly Kruna as it was promised in the introduction of the system. This means that all auto-renewal accounts prior to December 15th received 50 extra Kruna. Those who wish to get monthly extra Kruna can still sign up for auto-renewal and get their monthly reward starting on January 15th. Also in January the extra Kruna given by Hyuil in Winter Wonderland will be activated. This probably means that the Winter Wonderlands will be around until next year beginning probably and so will be the new clothes, ballooms, snowballs and candy canes people are enjoying much as of now.

Do you know where we have lots of information?
Posted by: AllyGator -- 3:27 AM EST

Some of our users don't realize that the old Nexus Network site was a forerunner of this site. The rights to that content were approved for use here on NexusAtlas. We've noticed there are many questions in our forums about things that can be easily found in our Nex-Files section. Because of our new layout some users may not have noticed where they can find that section. It is under the second page of the Library Tab to the left. Some of the information there is from Nexus Network and some is from later versions of the game. This is vital for newer players and a good refresher for veterans. Whether you are just learning or want a look at things you learned long ago, take a stroll through this section.

Gelapod Legend Mark
Posted by: Nagnag -- 2:44 PM EST

Perhaps many of you have already noticed that you get a legend mark when you feed an item to the Gelapod (located in the sheep field in the Wilderness [128,120]) you receive a legend mark.

What a lot of people do not realize is that this legend mark is only viewable by you by pressing S to view yourself, and then it shows on your legend that way. When clicked, it does not show on you. Whether this is a bug or not is yet to be determined.

Also there are antlers and new scarfs available in item shop, the red nose is back again for people to enjoy Christmas time. And talking about Kruna items, be sure to talk with Hyuil at the entrance of the Winter Wonderland, he has a few good things to say:
Ah, you seemed to of entered this mysterious and fascinating world of dreaming. Please relax and enjoy your time here, there many fun things to do and plenty of things to see. Just by speaking with me you have earned yourself a holiday gift! We call it Kruna. You won't see this right away but you should be seeing this gift soon."
This means that by clicking Hyuil each person gets free Kruna for item shop. It's only once per account so those thing they could bring alter-egos to multiply the gift won't work.

Auto-renewal Extra Kruna
Posted by: Vini -- 5:33 AM EST

Quite a few people have been wondering what happened with the monthly free Kruna (Item shop money) that was promised to auto-renewal accounts. Many have been claiming it to be a false "promise" as it's December 6th today and none really got any additional Kruna besides the 150 intial given ones, so GM Mug cleared up the confusion in the community board:
All auto-renewal accounts will receive the extra Kruna on the 15th day of each month. He also mentioned that "other kruna must wait and see". Perhaps this means there might be other ways to gain Kruna soon.

This answer means two things at least, first that KRU didn't make false promises like many were claiming, they will be giving extra Kruna to auto-renewal accounts and second that people who still didn't change to auto-renewal have until the 15th of December to update their account status to auto-renewal. Not sure what else people are waiting for, rush and go change to auto-renewal, not many days left.

New Top #1 in Power List
Posted by: Vini -- 7:00 AM EST

It was on the beginning of August 2003, that the legendary warrior Calmwind was passed in power by Shans. Calmwind had only been passed once before by ShinI, but by his banning, Calmwind continue his lead. Well, the lead of Shans lasted 3 good years but now with her recent decision and departure of nexus, much was speculated of who would be the new top: Chinchin or Winroute.

Clairvoyant winroute was Yuri 55, used to hunt about 8 hours per day when started. He still didn't pass the mark of 2mil vita / 2mil mana, so it might take a while to pass the rumored 2.5mil+/2.2mil+ stats of expired Shans.

The Nexus atlas would like to congratulate Winroute on his new achievement and hope that none of our staff ever gets hit by any of his Hellfires.
