Together as one
Posted by: Vini -- 5:09 PM EST

In a memorable weekened, through 3 days our community was able to have great moments of joy, fun and many events.

This was another success of the Culture fair organized by the Royal Ministry of Koguryo held in the Fairlands of Dae Shore.

A Special thanks to all who helped organizing it, specially the Royal Ministry of Koguryo.

The fair lasted 3 days, starting on Friday with the presence and organization of events on that day by:
The Bear, Sun Moon, Enigma, Oceana, Destiny and Tiger clans of Koguryo; Unofficial clans Aura of Buya and Yonshwa Hyangdo of Nagnang; The Nagnang Army; the Nagnang Ministry; the Royal Army and the Royal Ministry of Koguryo.

On Saturday, the second day of the Fair, the following organizations presented themselves to public:
The forsaken and Pegasus clans of Nagnang; Heavens, Lost Kingdom, Phoenix, Dharma, Elendhirin clans of Buya; the Buyan Army and Buyan Ministry. Also the Royal Ministry, Nagnang Army and Koguryo Army showed up again on the 2nd day.

Today, the last day of the Fair it was the day for the subpaths to present: Barbarian, Chongun, Diviner, Do, Druid, Geomancer, Merchant, Monk, Muse, Ranger, Shaman and Spy. The Royal Ministry has held the Sunday Revels there at the fair as well.

A great doing by the Royal Ministry, to gather all the clans, ministries and subpaths in one place to present themselves to public, to hold an event all together for nexus as one only community.

Special thanks to all who organized the events and presentations of their clans, paths and ministries, without these people this event wouldn't have been so great as it was and also special thanks to Minister Starrbrite and the Kogurian Ministry for making this culture fair turn possible and enjoyable for everyone to come.

Sudden Departure
Posted by: Vini -- 9:51 PM EST

Tonight, the brothers Sanvu and Chanchu met near the Kogurian Palace. All the 4 circus people were there.

The two brothers talked for a while and recognized they needed each other. They appologized and got back together.
Elder Winder of the Barbarians was there as well and offered to do a Blood oath .

Malou complained about wasting money, but Winder said it could be done for free. Either way they didn't accept the offer because they were already birth brothers.

Out of a sudden Chanchu walked by people and saged saying he found the one he was looking for. He started flirting with Ayumii.

The other circus members found that strange, but we clearly noticed that Caemyoun got really jealous about it.

While that, Winder started saging to convince Prince Mhul to come out so Chanchu could throw knives on him. I, Vini stepped in to defend Prince Mhul and saged that he would preffer throwing the knives at Winder.
We both started provoking each other, until Winder started pushing me far from there.

Caemyoun got really mad about Chanchu talking with beautiful ladies, then took a horse and left. No one really cared much about it, even after her sages.

I went near the crowd to warn that Caemyoun was gone, but the circus people were really slow to understand what was going on. I believe Caemyoun has some sort of secret feelings for the eye-patched guy and that's why she ran.

I tried following her, but she was on a horse and I was on walk... last time I saw her she was in Southern Koguryo southwest of it. I warned people about it and then Sanvu started saging about her returning to Han, so they all left after her.

After all that, Prince Mhul saged some farewells to the circus people. He said that the Kogurians would be working on preparing the tents.

We were all a bit surprised about their sudden departure.
Now the question that remains is: Will they ever come back?

Chanchu talks with Prince Mhul
Posted by: Vini -- 1:00 AM EST

On Last Thrusday, Chanchu finally got to talk with Prince Mhul about his will to join the Royal Army.
Malou and Caemyoun were with him there. They both were trying to convince Chanchu to change his mind and continue with the Circus.

Prince Mhul, Malou and the community kept trying to convince Chanchu to change his mind, Caemyoun was trying too, but seems that some people were calling her ugly and fat, she got really upset and ran to cry on a corner.

After a good while, Prince Mhul convinced Chanchu that he should go back with his family & friends. Caemyoun stopped crying when she saw that Chanchu finally decided to return.

They agreed to talk with Sanvu at a later time, for the good of the circus, Malou mentioned the money issue again and left out of a sudden. Chanchu and Caemyoun started a bit more near the palace, thanked the Prince and all of the community who were there to help.

None of the Circus people have been seen out in kingdoms since then.

More about the Circus people
Posted by: Vini -- 11:34 PM EST

Last night two other figures of the Circus showed up in Kugnae. They were Malou, a strange illusionist of the circus, and Caemyoun, a very odd bearded and fat woman.

Both came from east gate looking for Chanchu. They started asking people around there if they saw a guy with an eye-patch. Some people knew where he was.
Chanchu was in Kugnae Palace asking for help on how to join the Royal Army. He entered the Army barracks where he spend most of the time.

The people of Kugnae showed Malou and Caemyoun the way to the palace, both very confused took a long while from east gate to palace. There, they looked for Chanchu all over the palace and finally figured out he was inside the barracks.
After talking to a few soldiers, Malou convinced them to ask Chanchu to come out.
The guy Malou could only care about the money they were losing because of that fight, Caemyoun was more concerned about Chanchu in personal ways.

Chanchu wanted to speak with Prince Mhul, who actually showed up a bit later in the barracks. Caemyoun lost hope and left crying.

After a long while Malou managed to convince Chanchu to go outside of the palace, the amount of people there watching them was interrupting the ones who were going for the Clans meeting.
Prince Mhul went to talk with them and welcomed them to Koguryo. The Prince explained that he had that meeting to go and a few others later on.

Malou convinced Chanchu to go back to the camp and think over his decision. Chanchu went back to where Caemyoun was while Malou stayed a bit more, talked about money and left without thanking people for their help.

No one heard or seen Sanvu last night, his whereabouts are unknown for the time. Hopefully tonight we’ll be able to find out more about what’s going on.

Screenshots of these 4 are still needed; if anyone got them please let me know.

The Brothers: Sanvu and Chanchu
Posted by: Vini -- 11:23 PM EST

On Tuesday night, the leader of the Circus of Stars, Sanvu showed up in Kugnae with the company of his brother Chanchu.
Looks likes Chanchu is a knife thrower, but he has been missing a few throws with his knife and was playing with them. That got Sanvu really mad. Sanvu yelled at his brother for throwing a knife at Winder.

Chanchu was already thinking about throwing knives at Sasonaru, the first citizen they found.

They started arguing about it, both really angry at each other.
Sanvu wasn’t really easy on his brother when Chanchu threatened to quit. The Circus leader said he didn’t need Chanchu, so he went and quit for real.
Sanvu left and Chanchu decided to stay and try to join the Royal Army of Koguryo.

Looks like these two brothers don’t have a very good relation. We’ll see what will come out of this in the next days.
Thanks to all who sent me information about the happenings of tuesday night and Sansonaru for the screenshots.

Spy Elder Shift
Posted by: Vini -- 11:11 PM EST

Last Monday, the Koguryo Spy Guild had a shift of Elders. Elder Arkanis has made Hobart the new premier of the KSG. Hobart had already been elder for a day a few months ago, but looks like this time he's staying elder for good.

There's a very good article about Hobart in the news board of the Kingdoms, the Kingdom Tribune. It's on Issue I, page V, people interested about it should really go check it there.

A Circus Coming?
Posted by: Vini -- 5:06 PM EST

Several Diviners have experienced Augury visions this past weekend and most or all of them posted about them in the Chronicles of the Winds board.

These visions probably have relation with what Princess Lasahn of Buya have been saging and posted about on COTW and Community board. Here's a copy of her highness's post:

~|From the Imperial Sovereignty of Buya|~

Dearest citizens of all nations,

I am pleased to inform that special guests from neighbouring lands will be gracing us with their presence very soon! These guests are part of an organization reknowned as the "Circus of the Stars." Each member of the circus is unique and very talented -- all serving the purpose of bringing the kingdoms a sense of joy.

Citizens, it is time now to celebrate and rejoice! Long has it been since our kingdoms have come together in such wondrous tidings! Those of the wilderness, you too are welcome to join us in welcoming our festive guests!

Sanvu, Ring Leader of the "Circus of the Stars" is a noble man who will surely inspire the many of you who are interested in learning of the circus life. When he comes into the Kingdom, please treat him with your utmost respect for he has done the same for several other kingdoms.

Enjoy the next few days!

~Princess Lasahn~
~Head of State of Buya~

Seems this week will be fun with this Circus of Stars thing. If anyone find information about this man called Sanvu we would be pleased to receive it.

Tiger Clan of Koguryo -- official!
Posted by: Coldsun -- 8:17 PM EST

Earlier tonight, FireTiger and the Tiger clan of Koguryo faced their final challenge: approval from the Tribunal.

At around 9:30 PM EST, the word began to spread... the Tiger clan will be official. Half an hour later, FireTiger released a public statement on the community board:

Wow. We made it. I can't believe it. We did it. 6+months of work.. N-mails.. whispers... spam..

And a family was born tonight.

I just want to thank you all who made this a reality.. From my little dream to this. I thank you for not giving up on us.


Tiger clan primogen

I spoke briefly with FireTiger, and he nothing but praise for his fellow kindred. "A clan is not a clan without the members, we never forget that. I thank THEM tonight. I was only a light in the shaded night."

FireTiger also informed me that Yiro will be the first Primarch of the Tiger clan. "I believe that we focused on the goal..." said Yiro, "...we strived to achieve the goal, and all of our teamwork coming together helped make this clan what it is today."

Congratulations to the Tiger clan for the recognition they deserve.

House bug...fixed?...FIXED!
Posted by: Rachel -- 3:03 PM EST

After a bit of a wait, it seems that the house bug has been fixed. ^.^

This was posted on NF by Poetastk:

i finally got an email from delphi.

"Please return to the inn keeper and you will have your house restored.


im not at home right now but when i go home, i'll see if that works.. and update you guys. anyone else got similar emails?

I did not recieve an e-mail from Delphi, (Or I just can't figure out what e-mail account I used ^.^) but I did get my house back.

Here's what I did:
-Log in on the character that owns the house
-Go to the inn keeper
-Click on him
-Choose the option for renting a house
-Click on him again and he will (..should?) take you to your house!

If you have any problems, post them on NF or send me a message and we'll try to figure out what went wrong.

If your rent ran out while the bug was in effect, it may not be possible to get your house back.

My appology
Posted by: Conro -- 1:33 AM EST

With a heavier heart, I write today to provide you all with an appology of what occured earlier last night.

After asking xTheChosenx to edit his post content because of bias in his writing, he instead decided to remove it. I reposted it with my edits, not checking the validity of the screenshots, for I was told he found the information himself, and I am more inclined to believe someone who has been granted posting power than I would someone who hasn't.

Again, I appologize for this hoax of sorts, and I promise to check the veracity of further strange sightings.

On behalf of Nexus Atlas, Id like to extend an apology to those who read the story concerning the event that didnt exist last evening.

The past day has been a real long one for me and it was after a few other things before I noticed the obvious problems with the pictures in the post.

Those responsible for the post have been delt with accordingly.

It's unfortunate that some people act the way they do for certain purposes.

For those curious, this is concerning the Mianek "super newbie" pictures that were forged and put on our main page.
