Past News

Did you miss that important news story? Do you want to read what happened while you were on vacation. Here's where to get that info!

Our news software, Coranto, has a bug which makes it purge links to news articles more than two years old. What is left of programmers who volunteer their time to support this software do not know why this bug occurs. We manually index older news pages in our Archived News section.

Posted by: Rachel -- 3:36 PM EST

It looks like we won't have to hunt down every update this time, because the the news page has a new post detailing us about every change that was made!

Will this become the new policy at Kru? I, for one, would welcome the change. Perhaps they might also tell us a bit more about their future plans!

You can find the entire post of updates by clicking on the news tab or you can just Click Here.

Thanks to ZokUrA and Baram for notifying us about this.

Chongun Pardon Tribunal Postponed
Posted by: Conro -- 10:08 PM EST

As posted by Silents

Citizens of the Kingdom of the Winds.

I regretfully must inform you that the Chongun Pardon Tribunals will be postponed until further notice. This comes after many efforts to offer our service, but lack of interest from many. As well as from the flack we have recieved from many in conjunction to the Royal Pardons ((Unsigned Scrolls and through the Royal Courts)).

There is no estimated time of return at this time. But rest assured, Pardon Tribunals shall return eventually. If you have any questions or concerns, please ~NMAIL~ them to myself.

I am sorry for any inconvienence this may cause.

Blight makes contact
Posted by: Vini -- 9:51 PM EST

After a few weeks without making contact, General Blight has finally sent a new letter to our community, posted on the Chronicle of the Winds board about the situation with the Shape-shifters and the shamanic ritual.

Here’s a copy of his post on COTW:

Many of you have wondered where I have been, now that the ashes of
the four have been collected. A final pocket of resistence was
encountered by myself and those who follow me. Their evil taint had
been sent out as an advance scout to infiltrate Kaya and knowing that
none of these monsters could be left behind, I sought them out and we
destroyed them all before yet another portal could be opened.

Yet, that was not enough! For the last one of them I tortured in a
mindless rage over the death of my brothers in arms and the taint they
tried to inflict on my beloved Nagnang. He talked this one did!
*grins menacingly* And it was good he did talk. For some of the ashes
were on these cretins, and without the recovery of these nothing we
did would have worked to bring The Four back. He also made muttered
something about the curse of some Dongbas upon them. These are the
Naxi Shamanistic Priests who knew of them and how their taint might be wiped out. I believe The Historian, Qantao, has some knowledge of
these foreign priests. Therefore, as I ripped the last of the
information from the body and mind of this last abomination, I was
able to get an idea of where to look for this man.

After many months of searching and sneaking through enemy territory,
I came upon this legendary shaman, he who had a hand in writing the
"Ha zhi p'i." His name I cannot reveal, for he placed upon me a
price for this knowledge, and one I have willingly paid for the sake
of my fallen brethren. Rebirth is possible. And while he said there
were things we must do according to our own Holy Ones due to our lands and beliefs, he gave to me the secret ingredient necessary to perfect the rebirth and salvation of The Four.

I am on my way back to you, and I should be there in a few days at
the most. I request a meeting be set up between myself, Izabella,
StriGoi, our Holy One and the Historian, so that we may discuss the ritual needed and plan for The Four's revival. For those of you brave enough to bear the mark and the retrieval of the ashes, this will be a final compliment to your bravery. It will take many, even those who tried their best but did not receive the mark in time, to be at this
ceremony. For the other thing stated by the Shaman Dongbas was that
the people of the land are the other ingredient necessary to give
rebirth to my fine comrades. Please return this messenger hawk with
your reply as to a date a time of meeting, so that we may finish what
we've begun.

Love Live Our Beloved Nagnang! Forever may she thrive!
General Blight
Beast of |\|agnang

The original post of Blight can be found as number 2015.

For those who were asking, there is still no new information about Wony's Challenge yet.

KRA needs assistance!
Posted by: Vini -- 10:15 PM EST

Last Saturday, the shape-shifters continued their attempted invasion of the kingdoms. They struck the heart of Koguryo, the Kugnae palace in a surprise attack on the KRA barracks. KRA reports show a vast tunnel system being created in Dae shore by the shape-shifters, leading to the palace. Outnumbered, the KRA called for immediate assistance from the kingdoms. Soldiers and citizens of Koguryo, Buya, Nagnang and the wilderness fought for the freedom of their lands.

During the attack, KRA officials began searching battle tactics that can be used to drive away the shape-shifters. They stumbled upon a scroll, containing information about three Ancient Commanders of the Royal Army. General Nykid has concluded that the best course of action will be to locate these commanders, Toshyo, Fuma and Akatsuki, and see if they have additional information.

Tonight, May 18th at 9:45pm EST the KRA will be conducting a search mission in order to locate the Ancient commanders and they are inviting anyone willing to help to join them on the search by meeting on Kugnae Courtyard at the Kogurian Palace.
More information about it can be found on Chronicles of the Winds board or asked to a kogurian soldier.

Community Board Guidelines
Posted by: Flamethrower -- 4:01 PM EST

The following was just posted by Marama on the community board:

If you are posting multiple posts (replies etc.) please don't use all caps in your name it is distracting.

If a law is needed on this I will add it to Community board law.


Contrary to popular belief, which seems to be mostly based on rumors and a general lack of attention span, THIS IS NOT A LAW.

Marama suggests that this may be added to the community board law in the future. The community board laws include rules such as not discussing real life matters and not posting one-line posts. Post that break these rules are usually deleted without punishment to the poster.
- Rachel

Posted by: HealingLight -- 11:58 AM EST

After reading the following I could not do anything but smile.

Using the filter system to sexually harass a player will not be tolerated; the penalty will be the same as sexual harassment.


It seems Marama is putting a leg up on the rules. And they seem to be for the better =)

Please note the bold term - Rachel

Royal Court
Posted by: Conro -- 5:59 PM EST

As posted on the Guide Board #257:

We are pleased to announce players with criminal brands that cannot be removed at long last there is a way for citizens to plead a case before his or her Royal.

Before one can plead to the royal court you must meet certain requirements.

Brand removal requirements:
1. You must have had the mark 8 Yuri's (one irl year)

2. Any jailing you have had prior to the non-removable brand must all be removed; the Chongun path provides this service.

3. You must not have had any further jailing brands since the time of your non-removable mark.

4. You must have shown devotion so a requirement of karma spirit or higher is required.

If you meet these requirements send Marama or Neul a letter stating what you did to receive the jailing and why you feel the brand should be removed. If we feel you have learned from this experience we will let both you and your Royal know and a special court will be held so you can plead your case before your royal and peers.

When sending your letter use Title: Royal Court Petition any other title will not be read.

Seems those with Unspecified serious crimes, autohunting, Sage abuse, Sexual Harassment and Bug abuse given by Judges or Archons will finally have a way to have their marks removed.

This, however, does NOT remove the 'Last Justice matter handled by' mark, so you still can't get Wisdom robes 'correctly'.

For the neutral people, they also have a chance on this system and must choose one of the 3 royals to go to.

Searching the Shaman Witch
Posted by: Vini -- 11:51 AM EST

A few weeks ago, the nexus community has ventured into the Jangyesik, battled hundreds of vile creatures and found a way to recover the ashes of the four.

Short time after, General Blight posts about the results of his strikes there and after the Wuhu Luanhua General was beaten, there has been no more shape-shifters invading vale.

Yet, the portal with allowed them to invade our lands is still open and people should not give up trying to close it. Here's an incentive post to the community to help again on it displayed on the Chronicles of the Winds board : We still got work to do

The Shaman Witch that Blight mentioned must still be found, until the portal is finally closed, rest we cannot yet.

On other hands, to the ones who have been asking about the Wony's Challenge, it has not happened yet, so there's no information about who won the value item from Wony's Bomb game. That means that those who were willing to attempt it, still have a chance, keep your eyes on the Nexus atlas as it will be announced here as soon as any information if disclosed about this long waited Challenge!

Kru news and Purge coming today!
Posted by: Vini -- 6:22 PM EST

The account and support system of Kru Interactive have finally been updated and changed up to their new domain, leaving to the past.

Here is what was posted on Kru Interactive official website news:

Kru Interactive has acquired the domain and transferred all the
contents from to the new domain. Additionally, we have
successfully consolidated our new Support site and Account Manager site to
our company website for easier access. Now customers can just visit and click on the 'Support' or 'Account Manager' buttons rather
than typing in each site's address. Or if you'd prefer, you can still go
directly to these sites by typing (Support) or (Account Manager). These sites can also be accessed
through the individual game sites as well. All of us at Kru Interactive
would like to thank you, our valued customers, for the support you've shown
us during the transition.

On other note, today is the day of the PURGE, so if anyone who wants to keep their characters save, should try to re-register their account NOW, or else it will be too late. It's available on
