Festival of Music -- Live concert!
Posted by: Musoyen -- 11:57 PM EST
   
Close your eyes and let the winds reminisce of the past. When life was simple, and soothing music filled our ears as we did our daily activities!

Earlier tonight AznCloudBoi hosted a Festival of Lights! People from all walks of life showed up to watch the festival and listen to music. Ox, Tiger, Rooster and many more songs were played. People had the choice to request music while sipping on their favorite wine ranging from rice to moon.

Guest appearances by Brittania Spears, Kanye East, Jabbapockyz and more!



If you would like to be able to hear the old music that once played in Nexus, feel free to ask a Muse guide for a Tanso -- or head on down to Berig's BodhiSanctum and listen to the old songs there!

Chul's up to no good!
Posted by: Conro -- 3:47 PM EST
   
Seems Chul is working on the side of Mupa quite openly, despite being asked by the HaggardWitch to make a catapult or battering ram to break down the Big gate blocking the entrance to Mupa's Ice Dungeon.

If you wish to learn more (and earn some rewards)...


Go to Chul in Nagnang (West gate 021, 088 )
- Say ' Catapult' twice.
- Say 'Battering Ram' twice.
- Say 'Haggard Witch' twice.
- Say 'Mighty Mupa' twice.
- Say 'Dok' twice.

Go to Dok SMith in Buya
- Say 'Chul' twice
REWARD: 5 Pirate coins

Go to Beard smith in Kugnae
- Say 'Winds' twice
REWARD: 1 Minor quest, Legend mark "Fought off the Violent Winds of Mupa"

As of now, I am not aware of anything else you can do to help the HaggardWitch. If more comes up, we'll keep you posted!

Haengsa's Quest - February 2009
Posted by: AllyGator -- 6:06 AM EST
   
As published on the Community Board:

.....................................................going price
Step 1: Grand amber ring.......................25k
Step 2: Luxury amber bracelet.................250k
Step 3: White circlet.........................500k
Step 4: Battle helm..........................5-10k
Step 5: Scribe's book........................5-10k
Step 6: 3 Fragile rose.......................5-10k
Step 7: Lucky coin...........................5-10k
Step 8: Chocolate heart.................free on ground
Step 9: Purified water.......................5-10k

FINISH. Gives 8 pirate coins....................

Editorial Note: This is an extremely expensive quest for a mere 8 pirate coins! There are no items you can purchase with 8 pirate coins that approaches the cost of this quest. Many players have decided not to complete quest because of the costs involved not to mention the rarity of White circlets. The few Jewelers in the game cannot possibly craft enough for the majority of players to finish.

Many players are upset because they enjoy helping Haengsa sort out his many problems and are upset with this particular quest. Along with those players, Nexus Atlas hopes that future quests will be solvable by a majority of players and if such an expensive quest comes again, that the reward is in accordance with the expense.

  • Applicants must be registered patrons.
  • This position is, of course, reserved for role-players. Councilors will provide role-play for Kinung as well as the Nexus in general, therefore we require that all applicants role-play.

    Question 3: How many hours do you spend playing Nexus per week? Do you feel you will be able to devote enough time to this position to do a good job?

    Question 4: If you have had any in-game positions on your characters (ex. Subpath or Clan leader, Minister, Carnage host, Judge, Subpath Guide, Clan Council, Tutor, etc) please list them. In-game positions will not determine the outcome of your possibility of being accepted.

    Question 8: Why do you think you would make a good representative of the RP Town?

    Question 9: Please give a brief background of the character you are applying on.

    Question 10: The RP Town is a place where role-playing ideas may prosper. Please submit in few lines a briefing for a role-play event. Your idea must include already existing contents (i.e. no new event characters, maps or items).

    Good luck to all applicants! Hope we'll see some great RP events coming out the new councilors!

  • New Haengsa Quest
    Posted by: Vini -- 10:44 PM EST
       
    Haengsa is back and with his are his quests for pirate coins. He briefly explains those who approach him what happened with him after community helped him get freed from pirates. He actually wore the pirate uniform that people gave him to get out of the ship to deceive them and appear as if he was one of the crew. Unfortunately, as quiet man as he is, he ignores any attempt of asking about what happened when he got captured by pirates. This way he was able to obtain a lot more pirate coins to trade with his helpers.


    His first request in exchange for pirate coins is to help something for his wife: "a new ring for her pretty little hand".
  • 1-Bring him a Grand amber ring and will make him happy.

    Next he says he need something for his old mother-in-law. He wants something pretty for her wrist.

  • 2-A Luxury amber bracelet will please him.

    Then Haengsa says:
    "The next time is for the old father-in-law he thought it was cool I was a pirate and well he thinks he is a king so i need to find something really cool for him".

    Community has tried dozens of options but with no success. Haengsa only responds with the following quote to everyone:
    "He thinks he is a king but he really doesn't like that, keep looking".

    This post will be upated as soon as community manage to move on into the next part of the quest.

    Nagnang Army Situation Resolved
    Posted by: Vini -- 10:37 PM EST
       
    The Nagnang Army has been on lockdown for two weeks and dozens of community members began to wonder what happened to cause such a drastic move. The moment the lockdown was put in, the General was removed from his position and along with all high office members. As this was the first time a lock down resulted in removal of all council, speculations started to flow with different versions of gossip trying to explain it.

    Nexus Atlas looked into the matter and found the official version of what happened: The previous General was removed from position for being an alternate character of a former banned person. The council was only removed from office so the archon could assure the lock down would be respected. During the lock down process, the Nagnang soldiers had to vote on a the new General, the next person to lead them. Formerly a Colonel, Stimulation was elected to be the 14th Nagnang General.

    We had an exclusive interview with the new leader of Nagnang forces and here’s what he has to say about the future of the army:
    “I'm working on a complete restructure of the ranks and hoping that I can help abolish the picture of corruption that the past few Generals have burdened our soldiers with. I want to restore faith in the community that we are a force for good and a body of people who defends our land and our Prince, not embarrass them…”

    Nexus Atlas congratulates General Stimulation in his new position and wishes him good luck with his new duties.

    Wisdom Star Will Return
    Posted by: AllyGator -- 1:00 AM EST
       
    Late this evening GM Mug made a post on the Rambling Thoughts board:

    we are taking it down until we have all servers stable.
    then we bring back for a day or two.

    there is no need to be angry.


    Those who haven't been able to participate in this Wisdom Star event will be very happy with this announcement.

    On a side note, Nexus Atlas Staff has noticed a new building west of Buya's North Gate. The Imperial Runway has moved to new digs. Pretty impressive. Tour the non-stop models while waiting for these events to return.
