New Tiger Primogen
Posted by: Kikoura -- 7:52 PM EST
   
Seraphim has decided to step down and pass Primogen to Baliwind last night!

Seraphim was best known for his work and determination within the Tiger clan. He provided an active, strong council and a new room to place within the clan. Seraphim will always be remembered and we wish Baliwind the best on following in the footsteps of such a leader.

Congratulations, Baliwind and thank you Seraphim for your devoted time and effort into the clan, as well as making a fantastic choice on the Tiger Clan's new leader!

Information provided by Destanie
UPDATE:
Baliwind has made the choice to pass on the title of Primogen once again -- this time to Crash. Congratulations Crash, I can already tell by people's excitement that Baliwind has made a well-thoughtout choice! Thank you for your short time Baliwind! And good luck to the both of you!

Posted by: AllyGator -- 2:05 PM EST
   
The previous Elder Sinsation, who was given the lead of the Do subpath a little over three months ago, has been replaced. In time of need, the Walkers and Masters of the Do came together, and have elected a replacement. Monchichi is the Elder of Do once again.

Nexus Atlas wishes continued success to the Do.

New Home for Muse Thalia
Posted by: AllyGator -- 4:53 AM EST
   
Musadan Talos reports that Muse Thalia has moved from the Kugnae Theater to the Kugnae Library. We assume this is just for the holidays since the candle lit trail to the maze blocks the entrance to the Theater. In the meantime, Thalia seems to be enjoying her stay with Pond.

    A few hours ago, a change in The Forsaken has been announced over the kingdoms. Primogen Blinkeman has stepped down in hopes to give the clan new directions in the upcoming year. His sucessor was chosen among many other long term members, but am proud to say that the one picked is our very own Conro!

    Nexus Atlas is happy to congratulate Primogen Conro in his ascension and wishes him good luck with his new duties. Thanks to Blinkeman as well, for the time he has given to lead The Forsaken clan for the past months.

    New Koguryo Minister
    Posted by: Vini -- 9:51 PM EST
       
    KUGNAE -- Last night, was announced through the kingdoms that Hatiki has stepped down from the position of Koguryo Minister and appointed his sucessor. The official announced was to be made by King M'hul at tonight's weekly Clan Tribunal in the royal palace, but due to the holidays, the meeting wasn't held and therefore the announcement wasn't so widely broadcasted. Because of that, Nexus Atlas is proud to make known and congratulate the newest Minister of Koguryo, Lady Vales!!

    Minister Vales is the 5th one representing the kingdom of Koguryo since the ministries culture and peace were merged. Congratulations once again Koguryo Minister Vales and thank you Hatiki for all the services you've done to the kingdoms.

    Winter Snow Storm
    Posted by: Vini -- 6:36 PM EST
       
    A big snow storm has hit the lands today and together with it many changes happened. The most noticeable ones were:

  • The Winter Wonderland fills your dreams with candy, snowballs and those weird cartoon characters again. Gain minor quest and experience as you help the town's people with their request. Enjoy your time in dream land and all the holiday cheer!

  • Sa San Spells have been returned to their former glory with the shorter aethers; however you will no longer be able to use it on players.

  • The smoke graphic has been removed from the Carnage server so anyone who is cursed you will no longer see the repeated smoke. (This is for Carnage ONLY!)

  • The spell Hear footsteps no longer allows anyone to see invisible players. You can now only "hear" as was intended.

    Clan, Army & Ministry additions and fixes:
    * Silla clan gets new loom in the Silla Clan Hall.
    * Nagnang Army receives a new Merchant Nagnang Soldier who teaches about the history of the army. They also receive the new merchant Gilmore who does Alchemy and Nagnang captain who reads your karma.
    * Enigma Clan receives a new portal.

    Subpath additions and fixes:
    * Rangers receive a minor map change for a board
    * Barbarians Axe is fixed.

    Item shop:
    * New items will be released later today and all the old holiday items are back!

  • Sa San attack spell change on the way
    Posted by: Conro -- 1:02 PM EST
       
    Provided the limited options to vote for changes to the Sa san spells, players have apparently overwhelmingly let mug know that the provided aethers in his choices make the spells useless in player killing, opting for the spells to have their full power, five minute aethers, but no ability to use them against other players.

    Voting has been closed, and option B has won. The spells will be changed to have five minute aethers, with the original damage formulas, but will lose their ability to be used in player kill environments.

    A date for the change has not been set.

    New King of Carnage
    Posted by: Aens -- 4:23 PM EST
       
    Yes it is true, after 2.5 glorious years of being the Head Host of the Carnage Department, Head Host Gnoff has finally decided to step down from his throne and pass the crown. Gnoff has worked endlessly over that past couple years to ensure the Carnage Department ran like a well-oiled machine, and his efforts have not gone unnoticed.

    Snoop, who is widely known and the coolest guy in Nexus, was selected to become the new Head Host. Snoop is one of the best hosts to ever step into the arena and has been a Division Head for a long time. With the experience that he has, he will no doubt turn the Carnage Department into the shinning jewel of Nexus. Snoop has a heavy responsibility since PK and Elixir events are arguably the most important part of Nexus, but Snoop being the expert he is will have no trouble taking on his new duties.




    Good luck to Head Host Snoop and a big thanks to Gnoff for all his work in the past.

    Ingress changes
    Posted by: Conro -- 3:21 PM EST
       
    Mug reset today to make changes to Rogue ingress spells, as well as add four new spells: Il and Sa san Rogue ingress, Sam and Sa Warrior ingress.

    Current Rogue ingress were also modified damage wise. The following are the new formula for weapon damage.

    Rogue
    Il san: 1.5x
    Ee san: 2.25x
    Sam san: 3.0x
    Sa san: 4.0x

    Warrior
    Ee san: 6.0x
    Sam san: 8.0x
    Sa san: 10.0x

    It's unsure if these changes will help Rogues find hunts, but it seems to be a start.

    Special Thanks to Yttribium on figuring the formulas quickly!

Taking on this great responsibility is FalenAngel known for her work in the Koguryo Ministry. Talking with FalenAngel, she would like to thank Obi for all of his hard work over the last year and would like everyone to know that they will be seeing more from Enigma in the future.

    Looking to the Ranger subpath now, RiaDora has also decided to step down after the third time being Elder and passed on leadership to Ouned.

    Nexus Atlas would like to personally congratulate Engima Primogen FalenAngel & ElderOuned on their new positions. As well as thanking Obi & RiaDora for their hard work and dedication.
