New Minister of Buya Appointed
Posted by: Vini -- 10:23 PM EST
   
The Minister of Buya Archdruid LostAndFound has announced his resignation of his position tonight after three months in office, as he felt he has accomplished his goals during this period.
As his successor he appointed Sayako to become the 15th Imperial Minister of Buya. Buya also had a new Ambassador appointed couple weeks ago, Junes.

Nexus Atlas congratulates Sayako on her new position and thanks LostAndFound for his short but meaningful contribution to the community as a Minister of a kingdom.

Another Reset for Winter Wonderland Content
Posted by: Vini -- 9:50 PM EST
   
Storms in the kingdoms introduced new content to the game tonight: People can now find the remaining time of their modulators exp boosts by pressing "U" to use it. Also, a new automated PvP game was introduced to Winter Wonderland's Townhall called Snow Fury, which consists basically in "u"sing 3 snowballs to hit others on arena. Wins the last person "alive", not the one who hits most, so practice your dodging skills.



Here's a copy of the original post on Dream Weaver's board:

SUBJECT: Server Reset - Dec. 28th, 2016

The new PvP game gives a new legend mark just for winners, but not for participation.

    Monk's Memorial in honor of LiShen
    Posted by: Vini -- 9:40 PM EST
       
    Nexus community lost yet another star. LiShen has passed away last weekend as sadly announced by Valandil on communtiy board. For those who didn't have the honor of knowing her, she was a former Monk elder for three years (2008-2011) and a prominent member of the Lost Kingdom clan. LiShen also helped briefly here at Nexus Atlas a Monk news reporter.



    Yesterday evening the Monk Sangha held a memorial for LiShen at Lotus Dojo on Monk Garden with a Buddhist ritual. Jasna was kind enough to share one of her personal mementos screenshots to register beautiful homage done to another player who is going to to be missed dearly.



    Rest in peace LiShen, you'll be truly missed by your friends, fans and admirers.

    The Walk in Vigil - Logorin's Memorial Evening
    Posted by: Vini -- 10:21 PM EST
       
    A beautiful ceremony was held in Koguryo tonight where more than 70 people came to pay homage to Logorin who passed away couple weeks ago. With a colorful and flowery pathway from north gate Kugnae, people walked towards the Bear Clan Garden where they gathered to begin the walk in vigil.



    Carrying candlelight at nightfall, the citizens and friend of Logorin paraded towards east, entering the Tiger clan hall where he was once Primogen of for a brief period and then moved southeast reaching Dae Shore. From there people entered the Immortals Gateway's Chongun area and gathered at Heavens Ascent mountain. There, people gathered in circle to voice their appreciation for everything Logorin has done for the Nexus Community and remember the great moments of joy and wisdom, which they shared with our fallen friend.



    The one-hour ceremony counted with deep meaning speeches from Astrael, Vini Guide, Loxie, King M'hul, Xalmen, Amatus, RebelMagic, Tyrra, Ferro, Pitseleh, Living and Lancin. Among many wonderful words and moments shared about the importance of Logorin to our community, the final message in King MuHyul's speech summarizes the wishes of everyone present: "As we walked here in procession, we followed a path of stars and memories. I hope that he finds his place among the stars, and I hope that each of you will cherish your memories of him".

    Rest well Logorin, your beard will remain forever as a national treasure.
