As this happened a few days ago, I'm sure most of you already know the good news. Looks like we got something we've been asking for for decades. This is GM Stein's post from Dreamweaver:

* People who currently have the highest level of sage will be able to re-learn the spell if they ever forget it (such as when changing alignments) for 250k



Desty was kind enough to share with us what you will see when you go to re-learn your forgotten Sage 5

* The ministry jubilee clothes are being removed

Minor updates for:
- Monk subpath
- Druid subpath
- Silla clan
- Viper clan
- Lost Kingdom clan
- Oceana clan

New Buya Primogens
Posted by: Vini -- 7:12 PM EST
   
Shortly after the Defender's ceremony, Buya has announced two new primogens:
  • Arindale, who had just been recognized as defender was also announced as the new Primogen of Phoenix clan, replacing Guerrund who has stepped down.
  • RipOut, who has been elected the new Primogen of Heavens clan, after a lockdown caused due to Phiirosan's sudden long absence.

    Nexus Atlas congratulates Primogen Arindale and Primogen RipOut on their new positions and wishes Guerrund good luck on his new endeavors.

    The Royal Engagement During Defender's Ceremony
    Posted by: Vini -- 4:11 PM EST
       
    --- The Engagement Proposal ---



    BUYA -- During last night's defender ceremony, Lord Geumwa, the nephew of Emperor Xiu of Han who arrived on Buya few days before the Ripple in Time, officially proposed to Princess Lasahn as requested by his uncle and announced by General Hanxin. The proposal was expected to come sooner or later, but her answer was quite suprising to most people. "For Buya" said her Highness with a smile on her face while sliding the engagement ring onto her left hand finger.



    The proposal came shortly after the Buya Defender's ceremony was finished. Lord Geumwa asked a moment to speak and made a speech about how happy he was to move to this new home and how proud he was of buyan citizens and its new defenders. The young royal lamented not being able to ask her hand to her father and asked everyone at the Imperial Promenade to close their eyes and think of how prosperous Buya has been over the years, in respect of Emperor Aino Senshi. Since Senshi was actually a General before becoming Emperor, Geumwa asked Buya Army's General, Aurons, for the Princess hand as a symbolic act.



    After the Princess said yes, they both wore their new rings for public to see.



    --- The Defender's Ceremony ---



    The engagement of Princess Lasahn was obviously the grandstand of the evening, but surely wasn't the only remarkable moments of the ceremony. The Buya Imperial Army had a brief presentation on stage before taking formation behind the royals and the muses had a song and dancing performance.



    Here's a copy of the song performed by Muses:

    ♪ I've been here, I've been there, I've been everywhere
    But nothing can compare to the crisp Buyan air!
    The mountains, the ocean -- one or two at least
    They've got nothing on the Shining Jewel of the East!♪

    C'mon, boys! Show me your Buyan pride!

    ♫ [CHORUS]: Yes ma'am, Big Red!

    ♪ There's not a thing about Buya I'd ever change
    Even the Sire pit has its charm, albeit it strange!
    The Golden Empire is a place for culture and beauty
    And everyone surely shines, from peasants to the snooty!

    Oh, Buya.. you've always been my home!♪
    .. except for that brief period of time when I live in
    Nagnang, but.. let's.. forget about that..

    ♪ The streets will put you in a trance, too
    Walk them and they'll Castaspella on you
    There's no better place than Buya in the nighttime
    Enjoy the girls of the Muse, they only cost a rhyme♪

    .. except for me! I cost a hell of a lot more!
    Isn't that right, MistPrince? .. I mean .. Guerrund! ..
    I mean .. wait, who am I married to these days?

    ♫ [CHORUS]: As long as you're a Shaman, she's obviously game!

    HEY!

    ♪ You'll be up in the Heavens like a mighty Phoenix bird
    You can explore your inner Dharma and find your Lost Kingdom, I've heard!
    You simply cannot have any regrets, this is all Sans Sin
    A little evening fun can never hurt, ask the Twilight of Elendhirin!♪

    It's Buya's night, ladies and gentlemen! Let me hear you SCREAM!

    ♪ March on like a mighty soldier, prove yourself to me
    Scream your love for Buya like a mighty and fierce banshee!
    Tonight you'll see all of those mighty ones who certainly do and they'll be rewarded with Buya's bright golden hue!

    Welcome, everyone! Let's get this ceremony STARTED!♪

    ♫ [CHORUS]: Thanks for the dramatics, Jolie.

    ♪ It's what I DO!♪

    After the dancing show, the defender's honors began. Here are the 12 nominees that were recognized as the new defender's of Buya that night and earned the right to wear Buya's golden color:



  • Adani, from Elendhirin clan
  • Primarch Arindale, from Phoenix clan
  • BeRLiN, from Lost Kingdom clan
  • Council BloodOfThor, of Dharma clan
  • Admin Major Dekato, from Buya Army
  • Arts Laureate Kaiyan, from Buya Army
  • Primarchess Sheilala, from Lost Kingdom clan
  • Imperial Minister SoulGuard
  • Sourapple, from SanSin clan
  • Head of Paths Streetrat, from Phoenix clan
  • Imperial Delegate Toxuen from SanSin clan
  • Voltel from Elendhirin clan



    Heavens clan did not have any defenders due to it being on lockdown and on process of choosing a new Primogen.

    A Royal Date
    Posted by: Vini -- 2:20 AM EST
       
    Few hours after Buya clan tribunal, while I was meeting with the new Minister of Buya and interviewing him for the news report below, the sages echoed through the winds of Buya: Princess Lasahn and her groom-to-be, Lord Geumwa, were going on a field trip for her to present him the clans of Buya.



    Accompanied by soldiers and ministry members they ventured through the roads of Buya to visit 5 of 6 clans. First they went to Elendhirin, then to Dharma, then to Phoenix, then to Lost Kingdom but couldn't enter the hall and finally they went to SanSin. No member of Heavens clan had door key available at that time to open for them.





    At the end of the field trip they returned to BIA barracks where Jolie and two soldiers performed a singing and dancing preview of what's to come for the defender's ceremony this Friday. Lord Geumwa and Princess Lasahn seem to have enjoyed the presentation and both will be present during next ceremony.

    The Shining New Minister of the East
    Posted by: Vini -- 11:58 PM EST
       
    Couple days ago there was an important announcement handled by Buya Imperial Ministry. A few days before the Defender's ceremony, Minister RebelMagic had to step down of her duties and appointed SoulGuard to be her successor.



    Jeong-Do SoulGuard has also served Buya before as its Warrior Tutor and was until yesterday the Arch-Sentinel of Buya, who represents the leader of a inner ministry division called "Sentinel Faction".



    Nexus Atlas congratulates Minister SoulGuard on his new position and wishes RebelMagic good luck on her new endeavors.

    Taik Pae is back to work.
    Posted by: Ushallfeerme -- 12:47 AM EST
       
    I was informed by Falgore, that Taik Pae was around about in Kugnae. He politely obliged
    me with a meeting in Iron Heart's home.



    I asked him a few questions, and this is what I have discovered:

    In the back of Mananana's shop (82,72 Kinung) there are some Kilns. Taik Pae's new home .
    He has decided to continue his work from here.

    He will only be making the same weapons he always has. He is not interested in making
    anything new yet, as he is still shaken up from the disaster his Phoenix Sword resulted in.

    He is happy to make everyone as many weapons as they would like now. However, these
    weapons will be made so that only their true owner can wield them. (Bonded)

    I believe we will still see great things from this young, inspiring Smith. His talents are
    undeniable!

    So Much Good News!
    Posted by: Guldar -- 9:48 PM EST
       


    It seems tonight brings even more news! Keep the news tips coming people!



    First in the North-West corner of Koguryo by Baek's shop we have a strange assortment of the Royal Seamstress's clothing models. No idea what they're doing up here, but thank you to KeLLa for the tip!



    Probably the biggest news of the night, is the triumphant return of Taik Pae the weaponsmith of legend! He has set up shop in the Kilns in the back room of his sister Manananana's little shop in Kinung. (82/72 Kinung)

    Big thanks to Sammori for this news tip. It seems from a cursory examination that Taik Pae is offering to forge citizens new weapons, even if they have forged one previously! When I spoke to him, he asked me if I wanted a new weapon! Seems the quest is the same as before, he started right off asking if I had some of Walsuk's Special dinner.

    If you forgot how to do the quest, here is a link! Taik Pae Weapon Quest

    Preparations for King Mhul's Jubilee
    Posted by: Guldar -- 9:24 PM EST
       


    Today has been a madhouse in Koguryo, between the sealing of the time cleft to Alt Kugnae and now the insanity at the Palace with the preparations for King Mhul's Jubilee!

    Several new guests are at the Palace, bringing us some spectacular presents to celebrate the 50th year of our King's reign!



    First we have Honimoo giving out Parade Horse Saddles, which summon an armored steed with an azure color. Next to him is the Royal Seamstress, handing out free Special Robes and Special Draperies to all the good boys and girls. These coats are Koguryo Defender blue, and modeled after Mantles and Draperies. Currently they give stats, it is unknown if this is a bug or will remain. The male version has -4 AC and 3,000 durability. The female version has -6 AC, +1 Will, and 3,500 durability.

    I guess the GM thinks girls are more fragile! Thank you to Gwenstacy for the stats on the girly version. The seamstress wouldn't give me any since I'm a man!




    Next we have a lovely lady named LotusBlossom who is helping dye special flowers to celebrate the King's Jubilee! Azure Mugungwha!

    Step 1) Bring her 3 Pink Mugungwha
    Step 2) Bring her a Crystal
    Step 3) Enjoy your pretty new flower and celebrate!
    (Note: The dye process yields only one blue flower. Apparantly Mugungwha are a delicate flower and do not survive this process well.)



    Third up we have the Fireworks Master visiting the Koguryo Palace this time around, rather than his hut at South Mythic. He is putting on a show at the Koguryo Palace. Stop by for some amazing shows designed especially to celebrate King Mhul's Jubilee!




    As if that wasn't enough madness, there is a CIRCUS in town! Head to South gate Kugnae, and walk east to 163/203 or 164/203. There you will find the entry to the Circus Tents. There are two rooms inside at present, and they are unoccupied currently. Hopefully the circus folk will show up to entertain us in honor of King Mhul's 50th Year Jubilee! Thank you to ShdwStalker for sharing this information with NexusAtlas staff.

    Also, there is an entry to the Circus Tents from King Yuri's Statue to the East of the Koguryo Palace.

    Invasion!
    Posted by: Loxie -- 11:40 PM EST
       
    This just in! Soul Collectors are entering our world from the time cleft! Is Mupa still alive an plotting an invasion? Or was the the only thing keeping her world from ours? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Heeeeeeeelp!



    Alt Kugnae appears to be swarming with monsters! A call for help from Jainous revealed that the fighters are in desperate need of poets. It's a shame I'm a Chongun or I could help! -Sigh.- At any rate, they need people to help defend our world from Alt Kugnae!
