I just want to quickly say Happy New Year to everyone!

Also, I would like to thank NewSox for letting me throw a bunch of fireworks snowballs at him so I could kick Santa out of the banner. ^.^

Last reset of the year
Posted by: Vini -- 8:08 AM EST
   
The Nexus servers were reset just now to remove the effects of Wisdom Star experience bonus. Hopefully many enjoyed it during the holidays. Vortex bosses were also brought back due the end of wisdom star's season. The Christmas trees were also removed from Clan halls and subpath circles as well as the lightings spread through the kingdoms.

GM Mug also was kind enough to post a new year's message to all nexus players and according to his post he officially promised a sneak peak post by Nexus Atlas covering the new area to be launched. We look forward to doing that!
Here's a copy of his post available for public view in Dream Weaver's bulletin:

The end of the year is here and I would like to wish each of you a very happy New Year.
I will probably be doing one more day of Santa mug sometime after the New Year, it will only be open one hour for those who didn't get to come during the holiday. I will let you know more when I return after our New Years break. Thank you to each and every one of you who sent me cards and packages for the holiday, it is nice to know so many of you enjoy what I do. Thank you and I wish each of you the best New Year! Mine is already going well and its not even 12 midnight! I smile here!

I should have part one of the new project done some time next month but don't quote me because it is a very large project and most of it will still need to be tested. The new area will give players a new place to hunt, quest, all new items and more. I am looking forward to its release as I am sure you are looking forward to seeing it. I will give more details as I get closer to its release. I will probably have Nexus Atlas do a piece on it and send out a newsletter prior to the opening.

Wisdom star has vanished from the sky and the holiday items have been put away till next year.

Vortex bosses are back.


For those who missed Santa Mug's day, stay tuned here in Nexus Atlas to get to know in advance the day to be here for the second chance at it. The NA staff would also like to with you all a very happy new year and may 2010 be even a greater year for all nexus players! Happy Hyul 29 as well!

Santa Mug is Fast!
Posted by: AllyGator -- 5:17 PM EST
   
In years past it has seemed to take forever to wind your way through the frozen maps. This year was fantastically fast! Just visit one of the snow men found at each of Kugnae's gates to enter. In Tangun there are 3 snow men near the inn. The lines moved fast and most folks behaved themselves. If you were very lucky, you entered the last room immediately. At worst you only had 1 map to walk through. It seldom took more than a few minutes to complete. Kudos to KRU for fixing this!

Next dates:

Tuesday, 12/22/08 at 5:30 PM PST (8:30PM EST)
--(Subject to close when we feel tired)

Wednesday, 12/23/08 at 2:00AM PST (5:00AM EST)
--(Subject to close when we feel tired)

Gifts will be handed out once again, but only for a short while. ((Limit one per character)). Those who attempt to receive a second gift will be sent to the inns. Please be courteous to those who have not received a gift by granting them the opportunity to seize one. Once again, Happy Holidays to all and we look forward to continuing the season of gift giving!

((Please keep in mind it is limited to one gift per character and all gifts are random.))

Hacking warning, Protect yourself
Posted by: Musoyen -- 7:33 AM EST
   
Recently a player was contacted by a character named "Congestion" and was persuaded into visiting a website that supposedly contained a video of him. Once visiting the site, you are asked to update your video player. However, the supposed patch you are asked to download is nothing more than a keylogger. A keylogger, sometimes called a keystroke logger, key logger, or system monitor, is a hardware device or small program that monitors each keystroke a user types on a specific computer's keyboard. A keylogger will also log all passwords and usernames you type.

With that being said, if someone asks you to visit a site to download or patch something DO NOT visit it. In most cases you will not get any of your items or gold back and will get no help from KRU. Keep your account and your character safe. Do not visit any site that you are unsure of.

Beloved Emit Has Passed
Posted by: AllyGator -- 12:20 PM EST
   

I don't often post personal information but in this case I believe that many in the Kingdoms know Emit. He was always hosting events in Buya so if you remember a great warrior who showed you how to have fun...then you remember him. Watch the Community Event board. This weekend Heavens Clan will be holding an open house to host every type of game and event that Emit used to do. There will be great prizes. Heavens has adopted the Wicked Staff to burn brightly for Emit. Bring one to show your love!

AllyGator



It is with a sad and heavy heart that we say goodbye to a dear friend and fellow clannie. Derek, or as we better knew him Emit, passed away suddenly at his home in England.

Derek sometimes struggled with health issues but it did not deter him from being a dedicated and responsible council member of Heavens Clan, the clannie with the longest running history as council, you knew you could always count on him. He took little from the game except to dedicate himself to giving to others. He was sometimes uncomfortable that others would want to do the same for him, always a very gracious man indeed.

A few weeks ago when I stepped down as primogen I gave to him an engraved bright staff with the words "Heavens Blessing"... He was our blessing. I ask that we adopt the blue staff and engrave them with these word "Heavens Blessing" as a reminder of truth, honor and graciousness of Emit, his love and ours for Heavens Clan.

He will be sadly missed by many people from all corners of the world. I would like to believe he has his angel wings now, but he already had them here on earth.

Thank you Derek and bless you. You will be sadly missed.

Raushawna
~Heavens Ex-Primogen~


Some might ask, "Why so upset...it's just a game"? But the reality is that, while it's just a game, there are real people behind all these little pixels. When one of us passes away, never to return, there is a void left behind in that person's wake.

There are no ashes to scatter to the winds...
There is no place to gather and mourn...
There is only a very real emptiness left behind.

The person behind the pixels has passed away...and this grown man will indeed mourn him...and I find no shame in this act. For, though Emit lived thousands of miles away from me, both my wife and I count him as a very dear friend...as do many in the Clan of the Heavens.

In time, we will pay tribute to Emit. Just please give us the time to mourn one who was loved.

Whiteheart
~Heavens Primogen~


P.S. If you would like a donation can be made out to 'The British Diabetic Association' and sent to Phillips Funerals, 68, Alma Road, St Albans, Herts, AL1 3BL. Please indicate for Derek Seal or send a donation to your local Diabetic Association.

Server reset, Thursday, December 17, 2009

The Nexus servers were reset with the following changes:

First want to explain last weeks patch notes for future help, it is best that you don't run any programs in the back when you are patching Nexustk. This can cause issues with the patch. So before you patch just make sure you turn off anything else running. We apologize that these old notes we have always used confused a few players during the last patch, it was meant for patching not playing the game and why it was titled patching directions.

So in layman's terms, if your doing the auto patch, don't have anything open other then the patch. As the patch can disconnect while updating if any other program is open.

Tis the season and maps have been made to fit the season. Enjoy!

You will be able to use the gift wrapping now to give gifts to your friends and family.

ChaeRi's Request
Posted by: Conro -- 11:14 AM EST
   
Nagnang sits at a standstill after the latest invasion by the Mongolian forces. Uneasy with where to turn next, the government has come to the realization that our reliance solely on Blight's forces for defense will not cut it during our transition to an independent nation of soverign houses.

ChaeRi, the man clad in jade from the Kayan houses, offers a solution to the problems of defense in Nagnang. ChaeRi, in an effort to honor his fallen brother, will provide defense for Nagnang.

The negotations for this deal cause myself some unease. I am willing to accept the help ChaeRi offers, as long as it comes without a police state or the ascension of royalty to power. ChaeRi assures our government that he holds no intention of taking power, but one cannot rely on a strangers word alone.

ChaeRi has requested that the Eternal Order of Nagnang create a forum for Nangens to discuss Nagnang and her future. Fayebelle, the newly appointed Sage has taken up the offer, and will be hosting the forum ((Wednesday, December 16th @ 8:00 PM EST)).

Nangens present during the first meeting with ChaeRi post attack have discussed making defense a top priority, seconded only by matters pertaining to Kija.
Nangens are expected to discuss what will take place in regards to Hawkmori, Kija's assassin, and the organization for a proper funeral and burrial for the fallen Prince.

All are welcome to attend the Town Meeting, but only Nangen will be permitted to suggest the path Nagnang will take to ensure her future.

(( The Town Hall will occur Wednesday December 16th at 8:00 PM EST. Those in attendance who are not Nangen are encouraged to come and suggest ideas, but ultimately the decision rests in the hands of the Council of Nagnang. Any disruptors will be removed ))

Poetry Revels Theme and Christmas Creatures
Posted by: Vini -- 4:33 AM EST
   
Even though the Poetry Revels host, Poems, kindly posted a clarification on community board, this week's Revel's theme is still causing confusion to some players. Hopefully by reading this, we can clear the confusion. "Pendi" is a creature that looks like a panda and as far as we knew they were only creatures that appeared in our dreams of the Winter Wonderlands, but this year we learned that they exist and are roaming the outdoors of the kingdoms. Here's what a pendi looks like:

They're white as snow and look quite like their green or red brothers, the Pendo and the Penda:


Hopefully this solves the problem. As a reminder to citizens troubled with EE san culture, if you spent 1/10 of the time you do collecting wood into writing up a poem for poetry Revels or Story Contest you could win soon! Revels and Story Contest are the easiest way to get the Ee san culture trial done. It just requires a few hours of thinking and good effort. Be creative and it will be rewarded!

While still in holiday creatures theme, it's important to remind people that the usual Christmas items drop from any of these fellows that are walking around the city doors.


Happy Holiday and Happy Reveling!

Good news Citizens, we have finally chipped away all the ice! You should now be able to take a boat from any town and come to Kinung. I look forward to seeing all of your bright faces here and to hear all the wonderful stories you have to tell.

Long Live Nagnang, Land of the Dead

Tons of People Love Raffles
Posted by: AllyGator -- 12:24 AM EST
   
There have always been give aways and the occasional raffle. To celebrate reaching Legendary Woodcutter, QueenMargot recently raffled 20,000 Ginko wood; each ticket cost 200,000 coins. There were 79 people who bought a ticket bringing her a tidy profit! Some thought it was a scam but most knew they could trust her. Since that success some clans are doing the same to raise cash. This is a great way to pay for upgrades. Looks like an addictive event.

Kinung's ships
Posted by: Vini -- 5:28 PM EST
   
As the strong winter strikes nexus into a snowstorm again, the lands are all covered in white and the water from lakes, rivers and coasts get frozen. Because of that, seems that some of the ships around the sea coast are getting stuck with the ice. The traveling to Hausson island seems to be normal since the island is quite close to the coast, yet Kinung travelers didn't have the same luck. It seems all ships to the island of Kinung Town are stuck except the one that departures from Islets.
Cheyn, one of the elders of Kinung town has made a public post warning the community about the situation and informing that this problem is being taken care of already by his workers. Here’s a copy of his post in the community board:

-------------------------
Citizens, as you know the cold weather and snow have hit the kingdoms. With the cold weather comes ice and that is how our problem came up. Currently our boats are frozen at the docks and cannot get out to bring you to Kinung. I have my council working on it and they are slowly chipping away at the ice. For the moment the council will leave our magic scrolls at the docks so you may still come to our town. We have chipped away all the ice at the Islets entrance so you may also take our boats there. We are sorry for this problem and assure you we are working on it.
-Cheyn

--------------------
As soon as the ships to Kinung are normalized the Nexus Atlas reporting team will be sure to inform you. Until then people will either have to use Kinung Magical scrolls or travel through islets.

SPECIAL WISDOM STAR:
***********************

Game Master mug has been working on aligning the stars just right, this is to allow the Wisdom stars return earlier then planned. In a short 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, stronger than ever.

Scholars and swordsmen alike have always anticipated the coming of the sacred star, as with its light comes good fortune. When the star finds its niche in the night sky, its radiance envelops mortal minds and sharpens their wits, thus inducing all walks of life the ability to gain better experience on the challenges that reside in hunting lairs.

Some of the greatest achievements of the past were made during the high rise of the Wisdom Star, and now, once again, the opportunity to reach great goals is nearing. Let us all rejoice in the Wisdom Star's return!

((The Wisdom Star will be returning on Wednesday, 12/23/09 and will fade away around Wednesday,12/30/09 so get your accounts registered today!)

Vortex Boss Loose Again!

Be careful folks. It seems the Vortex Bosses have slipped their chains again. News from Miss says that the Crab Duke went on a killing spree at Vortex's North Gate. Keep a sharp eye out for more attacks!

The Nexus servers were reset with the following changes:

Want to take a moment to thank everyone for allowing me to work on the new area for the game instead of spending weeks on a quest that you only had one week to do, in the past event. So again for those of you who have been supporting me while I work on the new area, thank you. For those who were upset that the event didn’t have a quest, I apologize but I am very busy working on this new area which will be a great addition to the game. I have a few things lined up for the month of December. I am looking at doing a bonus for experience and also we have Santa M’hul coming up which I will also be at to give away gifts (new maps and faster access). The project is still looking to be released for the first of 2010. I am currently working to get the first part of this large project in by 2010. So keep hanging in there for me. The best part about this new are is there will be monthly if not weekly updates to it, so it will always be growing with more things to do.

Winter is here so the winter maps have been updated. This year so far I have also finished Vortex and hope to get a few other maps done.

I put in winter items for item shop.

Thanks again everyone and hope you have fun this holiday season!

Happy holidays!!

"Speeders", "Botters", "Cheaters"
Posted by: AkiKan -- 12:55 PM EST
   
first off a big thank you to maiyu for her help on this letter:
second and most important:

do NOT post about this topic on this board this is final.
((By board he means the Community board.))

We have received many valid opinions regarding the recent jailing of users who used speed-enhancing programs in the game. It is for this reason that I am making a public post on the issue, in hopes that all patrons will learn from this incident and deter from making bad choices that would result in compromised game-play.

Of the concerns received, there was a large out-cry of several who felt the punishment was too severe considering there were no prior warnings granted. In almost all cases, it is a given that when caught using a third-party program, one expects consequences to ensue; however, up until recently KRU has not classified supposed "speeders" in the same category as "botters", in that the latter was perceived more severe than the former. This is no longer the case, as we have taken initiative to verify the use of speed-enhancing programs that place unfair advantage over others.

While we understand that our laws are obvious warnings enough, this is the first time KRU has come public with verifying supposed "speeders" and issuing in-game consequences. The in-game justice system followed what was standard of all caught third-party users - a "serious other" jailing; however, due to the aforementioned out-cry of concern and our recent decision to classify "speeders" in the 'serious other' category, we are overriding these jailings with a pardon and strict warning. We trust that those who made bad decisions will learn from this situation and that those who are contemplating cheating devises will think twice.

To avoid any misunderstanding, as of this point on, verified "speeders" will be jailed and banned from the game alongside verified "botters." This letters makes all warnings official, so do not take it lightly. All in all, any form of cheating will result in consequences. This should no longer be a surprise.

Thank you for your time and understanding.
