The Trial of Murderers & Mupa's Bargain
Posted by: Vini -- 2:00 AM EST
   
Kinung – After many moons since Cheyn’s murder, the two people behind it, Humma and Rargh, were finally convicted. The trial by jury was held today in Kinung’s Court of Justice and the jury of nine civilians found both defendants guilty and they were sentenced by presiding judge Guldar, in name of the Chongun path.

The trial held in the room called "Court of Justice", located inside Kinung Town Hall, was scheduled by Kinung Mayor Spades on Hyul 32, 11th Moon, 21st Sun, 9pm ((June 25th, 9pm EST)). Although he was responsible for schedule and justice warrant against the two criminals, Mayor Spades was not present in tribunal. Kinung called for the help of the Chongunate Elder, Guldar, to preside over the trial and represent an unbiased force of justice in the court as, Kinung councilor Teikari played part as the prosecutor of it. While taking place as the judge, Guldar asked Minimoto, Senti, Snikot, Bisco and Vini to help guard the trial.


Kinung vs Humma & Rargh was judged by Chongun Elder Guldar and guarded by his Chonguns.

Humma, the elder of Shamans decided he would defend himself, but Rargh made an unexpected move. He invited Mihi, Cheyn’s widow to defend him. She accepted it and strangely was defending the man accused of killing her husband. According to Mihi, Humma was the guilty person. The trial went on for hours. Humma and Rargh presented their defense witnesses, while Teikari presented the eye-witnesses of the crime.


Councilor RiaDora is called by prosecution to speak on the case as eye-witness to the crime.

A jury composed by nine people watched the trial carefully as it was up to their decision whether the defendants would be condemned or not. The jurors were: Akidoshi, ArtemisE, Cossette, Naamah, RebelMagic, Songa, TheSavior, Zalathiena and Zared. After the case was presented by both defense and prosecution, the jurors entered a room called Jury Room. They voted first on Rargh’s case, was a difficult decision, but they voted and majority found him guilty. Humma’s verdict was easier to reach an agreement and they found him guilty as well.


Jurors receive instructions of how the trial by jury is held and their importance on reaching the veredict.

Back in the Court of Justice, the jury presented their verdict to the Judge and the defendants. As both were found guilty, Guldar presented the sentence chosen by the Chongun justice tribunal: both would be held in Holding Cells for 1 moon, banned from Kinung for 1 Hyul and branded as "Dishonored the kingdoms” for the crime of murdering the mayor of a town. Because of health issues, Rargh had to leave the trial prior to the trial ending and went to see a physician. He was informed of the verdict and sentence after the trial ended. Rumors say that the "health issue" he had was that he drank too much brew before the trial.

Humma was taken to the Holding Cells, located on northwest of the Court of Justice, inside Kinung Town Hall. While held behind the jail bars, Humma questioned who the jurors who voted against him were. Some of the shamans entered the cell area promising to help Humma while he was serving his sentence. Guldar entered and prepared to mark Humma with the red brand, but an unexpected guest appeared in front of the cell. It was Mupa.


Mupa appears out of nowhere and makes a deal with Humma to get him out of jail.

Mupa questioned Humma what was he doing there and said he could be of use to her. She said she could get him free in exchange something when she needed it. She did not say what or when she would need his “assistance”, but Humma, being held behind the bars decided to accept her offer without even knowing what she would need in exchange. After making a pact with Mupa, she then cast a huge spell into the room and broke him out of jail. She summoned him just outside of her dark trees forest, in Kugnae east gate, south of Tree of Reflections. Once there she reminded him she would come back to him when she needed his part of the bargain and then left. Humma was held by someone people near the tree, but with his weapon at hand, he managed to make way to escape. Mihi confronted both Mupa and Humma and got furious with what happened. For those who were thinking Mihi was Mupa, here’s a confirmation they’re not same person and actually act on opposite sides.

Mupa summons Humma outside of her Triiofa forest and asks for the Book of Stones.


After a while, Rargh was brought back from health care and placed into another Holding cell. He was branded for his crime and will stay there serving his sentence. There’s no sight of Humma but the fact that he temporary escaped from holding cell, won’t keep him from serving his whole sentence.

Rargh gets jailed after the trial and is branded for his crime against the kingdoms.

The reason why Mupa freed Humma is still unclear. "She said she wants him to bring her the Stones Book", says Kuururu, a rogue who watched her arrival near Tree of Reflections. Time will tell what the evil witch wants with the Shaman elder and what she plans on doing if she recovers the book of curses. Let’s hope that the muses do not let them get such book stolen.

A chat with Temporary GM
Posted by: Vini -- 6:13 PM EST
   
Some members have been quite worried about the future of Nexus without Mug over viewing it. There has been much speculation and rumors floating, but no official answer by KRU. Concerned about the welfare of other citizens, Sitliths found Stein around and had a friendly chat with him. From such conversation some information that will calm down everyone: Stein is acting as the temporary GM. KRU will continue to expand the Islands 2 (Kirriin) and 3 (Volcano) and they will start working on some new things while work with subpath/clans/etc requests.
Stein spoke of a "team taking care of different aspects". It is not know who else from KRU is helping in Nexus besides Stein. If anyone finds information, please contact a Nexus Atlas reporter.

Here's a copy of the chat done by Sitliths with Stein over whispers. According to the screenshots, Stein has approved this chat being posted in NA.
Sitliths: You mind if I ask you a question of two if you aren't busy? ;)
Stein: Sure
Sitliths: Are you acting as Temp GM right now? Basically a Tech support man?
Stein: Yeah, there's a team of us taking care of different aspects, but I guess I'm the temporary GM for the time being.
Sitliths: Also, will you be continuing mug's work such as the other Islands of Gogoon?
Stein: Yes, I believe that's the plan. Right now we've been focusing on fixing some things that have been problems for a while (old requests and such), but we do plan on expanding as well.
Sitliths: Ah, awesome! It is great that you guys are handling the 3rd party users
Stein: Right now we're just catching up and figuring out how everything works
Sitliths: How long do you think it will take you and your team to catch up on things, like old requests etc?
Stein: I don't know exactly what the time frame is, but we're going to start working on some new things in parallel with requests shortly.
Sitliths: Great! Do you mind if I give our conversation to a Nexus Atlas reporter? I'm sure people would like to hear you guys are diligently working everything.
Stein: No, that's fine.
Sitliths: Okay

Thank you Sitliths for caring to share such conversation with Nexus Atlas readers and thanks as well for making sure that the Temp. GM is/becomes a NA reader!

Server Reset, June 16, 2010
Posted by: AllyGator -- 2:52 AM EST
   
Starting July 1st we will implement daily resets for server stability and maintenance purposes. These resets will occur randomly between 5am and 6am PST each morning. It has been our policy to return items that are on the ground when the server crashes, but not for server resets. This will not change. If items are lost due to being on the ground during the daily reset they will not be returned, so please make sure not to leave items on the ground at these times.

This reset brings updates for several clans including SunMoon, Viper, and Tiger as well as minor changes for the Bloodlust system and the Fox Hunt system.

Nexus Forums Dreams Board!
Posted by: Rachel -- 1:44 AM EST
   
At somewhat popular request, we've added a dreams board to NexusForums. We can't promise that anyone who matters will read your dream, but it's not so restrictive about replies. In fact, we encourge everyone to post their thoughts: pro, con, or neutral.

You can find the board here: http://www.nexusforums.com/index.php?showforum=79

And if you're not a member of NF yet, all you have to do is sign up, verify your email, log in, and post a reply on the validation board. (When you're logged in as a validating member, it's one of just two boards that are visible).

We've also restored the log on function on our main page for your convenience.

New Immortal's Bounty contest
Posted by: Vini -- 11:35 PM EST
   
It seems that the sea monster that eventually shipwrecks the Hanseong has caught the attention of Archons. There’s an new event available in Immortal’s Bounty board in which they ask the citizens to write an encyclopedia entry on such sea monster. The winners of the contest will be granted free Kruna and story contest mark.

It is good to see such board being used again. We can only hope that once we have an official encyclopedia article about such monster, we might find means to make shipwrecks less often.

Empire Strikes Back
Posted by: Vini -- 9:29 PM EST
   
The Nexus servers reset just now and a small patch was done to help prevent 3rd party programs from working. The patch to client version 6.84 should take no longer than couple of minutes. Here's the reset details as posted on Dream Weavers board and Nexus TK official site:

  • 3rd Party Programs:
    We have made some changes that will hinder the use of third party programs in Nexus. We will continue to monitor this and make changes to the game in the coming months.

  • Carnage:
    Bloodlust system has received a new map and some updates they've been waiting on for awhile. A few other minor bugs were addressed.


    As a reminder, usage of 3rd party programs that affect your game play inside nexus (I.e. macros/speedhack) is illegal and consists in breaking terms of agreement. This means it can result in ban and perhaps in other law complications.

    IF anyone can still use illegal programs in nexus after this reset please post it on community board so you can be jailed, banned or at least hacked by Nurox. As it's known, either three of these options happen to all who use these programs. Sometimes all of three of them happen together. Many people have been banned recently due this type of abuse and many others might be banned too. To those who cheated and are gone, we can only say "so long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye".
