Posted by: theSavior -- 9:33 PM EST
   
This past week Zoie managed to gather enough Elixir tokens to finally purchase the O Snap bow and was kind enough to share some pictures with us.

The "O Snap Bow"

Who will be the first to save up enough for the Titanium Snap Bow? At double the amount of tokens as the O Snap Bow, it should be a little while longer until we find out!

Thank you to Zoie for letting us take a few pictures to show to the community.

The mystery of the Taal'yeein insiginia
Posted by: Vini -- 4:35 AM EST
   
Although humans have just recently found about the existence of Bulkkoch, the kingdom of the seventh Sea, our records show that Taiisrhaa has been wearing Bulkkoch Sea Pearls on his head since before the Forget-Me-Not Ball months ago. It seems that Suvola, his "companion in chains" (which could be easily seen as a slave), was also wearing Bulkkoch coral on her head.



While he wears an iron glove and she is forces to wear shackles and chains, like a slave master and puppet, he also carried the healing salve which he has been giving to Queen Yun over the claims of helping her.
What is common between Taiisrhaa's equipment and Suvola is that both carry a Taal'yeein insignia. It is not known what "Taal'yeein" means, but the Intel collected by KRA (Koguryo Royal Army) has strong evidences supporting the following hypothesis:
The shape-shifting witch imprisoned under the sea who is pretending to be the Sea Princess would be in fact the mysterious mother of Taiisrhaa which people have been seeking to find out. "Taal'yeein" would be the shape-shifting kind that the transformed witch and Taiisrhaa would belong to. In order to obtain their powers, these Taal'yeein shape-shifters would pretend to be friends of their victims until they can force them into signing an agreement which pretty much gives up their soul. Dangerous isn't it?

Suvola on the other hand seems to be a true nine-tail fox who got morphed into the body of one of Taiisrhaa's victims which would explain why Suvola doesn't act very humanly

This hypothesis is based on Taiisrhaa's too friendly behavior to Queen Yun of Koguryo which resembles the a lot with the story of Princess Serena tricked by the shape-shifting witch who could be Taiisrhaa's mother. Could they be plotting to steal Yun's soul as well?

The investigations are continued strong in hopes to find more evidences to support this hypothesis into a feasible theory. If anyone has important information which could add to this, bring to your local army officers or one of the Chonguns. The investigation of King Geumwa's murder isn't over and the prime suspect is growing more powerful. Reports from Koguryo Palace, show that by nomination of Prime Minister Loxie, Taiisrhaa was admitted within the Royal court as their new "Royal Shaman".

Bulkkoch - the kingdom underwater
Posted by: Vini -- 1:00 AM EST
   


The story happens at an underwater place called Bulkkoch, the Kingdom of the Seventh Sea. An old tale regarding a forbidden love between the Princess of the kingdom and a fisherman. Here's how the tale goes, as told by Taeniuru.

With help of the SeaNymph and Seamstress Dashae, community members were able to create a special coat made from enchanted suit of scales, which allows people to breath under water for a while and dive in a bottomless pool which seems to be the hidden entrance to the Bulkkoch kingdom. Under underwater, people can swim their way through fishes, jellyfishes and merfolk until they enter the Princess Chambers and find a Mermaid there who claims to be the princess.



She tells you about she fell in love for a human long ago, pretty much like the Tale says, but she doesn't seem very involved with the story. She says that she is locked away and can't get her magical anchor (Anchor of Binding) which would allow her to travel in and out of the sea. According to her, it was given to her by a kind woman.



The Mermaid "Princess" wants help to cross a room with enchanted current to reach a chest hiding the anchor which would allow her to escape. She reveals that a terribly "wicked and mean" fish knows how to outwit the tides enchantment in the chest room and seeks out help to get answers from "Alumda...something".



"Alumda" is actually a large fish called Aleumdaun and is a quite friendly creature. At first she seems to refuse to help the Mermaid "Princess", but once she finds that you're not friends with the Mermaid, then the truth is finally revealed:

"The Princess you met is not the real Princess. It's an imposter, a shape-shifter that tricked our poor Princess into giving up her soul. SHE came to our kingdom. She pretended to be friend, and oh so slick she was, even I believed her at first! She brought the Anchor with her. It was hers to begin with! She explained how it works to Serena, our Princess's name, and then said that she would gift it to her...but Serena had to give something in return. Fancy talk n' all, It didn't hit us then that this was Serena's soul that this wretched woman was after! By the time we finally understood what was happening, it was too late. Serena signed the agreement and the binding ritual was performed.

Now my poor Serena lays in the enchanted sleep, neither dead nor living. You see, this shape-shifter she wanted to steal Serena's soul and then use the anchor to get back home. But, little did she know that Serena commanded water to protect her anchor. If anyone walks into the room, the currents will rise high and strong...no one has been able to pass through. So, now this imposter princess is trapped herself ha! She cannot leave without the anchor so she spends day in the castle pretending to guard it. All the while she is still trying to get it back for herself. She is a wicked woman, she used her dark charms to entrap the King and Court and make them all think she's the real princess. I pretend I believer her as well, but I suspect that she knows I see her for who she really is. It's no coincidence that she ordered her goons to patrol the entrance to this house. You must retrieve Serena's binding agreement. The witch's powers are growing strong. She may soon find a way to retrieve the anchor and all hope will be lost then".


Aleumdaun has a plan to trick the shape-shifter witch pretending to be the Sea Princess. To capture a zinger and wrap it within decorated cloth and give it as a present to the witch morphed into Mermaid. With that, the witch will be stun and that will be a chance to grab the binding agreement. Once the agreement is retrieved to Aleumdaun, she sends to a place called Auroras shining where you place the parchment over the sleeping Princess's heart.



Serena's eyes open and she slowly awakens and feels very guilty. She thinks she's paying the price for using magic and the usage of the Anchor of Binding is very pricy. According to her, to get the anchor to work you have to bind your very soul to it, so, if it ever falls into the wrong hands... your fate is sealed.

Upon telling the story of how Ophelia wants to meet with her father, Princess Serena feels compassionated and wants to help. Therefore she'll help you grab her old Anchor of Binding and take it to Ophelia.

She warns to keep the anchor away from the shape-shifting witch. If she or her kind gets their hands on the anchor then both our kingdoms and Bulkkoch kingdom will be in danger. Serena then blows a magical whisper into an empty flask with a message to the currents to allow you to cross the room to reach the chest. Upon obtaining Serena's anchor of binding she is able to help reunite Ophelia with her father. But What about the distanced union of Princess Serena and her father, the Bulkkoch King?



Will they ever meet again?

The continued Ophelia Saga - explanations
Posted by: Vini -- 10:57 PM EST
   
As revealed by Alilolelotte back in July 3rd, the story of the current event is tied up with an event which occurred back in November 2013. The second in the series of three. While to start the current one it's not required have discovered the Secrets of Buya Haunted House before, to understand the story of Ophelia it would be great to look back on what happened at the previous event. So here is how the storylines connect:



Back in Hyul 59, the community met a pirate girl named Ophelia, a friend of the old man Noxhil, the old hallowed shaman who lives in the buyan Islets. Back then, we learned that Ophelia was looking for her dad whose ship was destroyed at the sea.



Her father, is an undead pirate captain who was lost in a final unrest and couldn't remember his history anymore. Ophelia was a familiar name for him, but he couldn't remember how he knew that name.

Ophelia told people about how she remembered a song her father used to sign for her when she was still a little girl. "Through the dark and stormy night, I will be your anchor. I will be your light". And after he sang the song he would make a fist, blow on it and when he opened his hand there was a beautiful flicker of light.

Upon meeting her father, this was exactly what people needed to do. Sing the song and sparkle flash dust with fists. This would bring his memories back and allow him to send a message to her. And this is where the story connects to the current event.



As it's known ("it is known"), Ophelia is standing at north Gate of Buya, where she tells people that she received a letter from her dad saying he wants to see her. Thanks to help of community she knows he's sailing the River of Stones. Problem is that the underground passage of Buya Haunted House is sealed off by boulders.



With the help of the Old Hermit, who we known to be called Lucretius Laframbois, community find ways to enter the underground River of Stones and meet with her father. It seems Lucretius (the old hermit) has some hidden agenda for not wanting to let Ophelia to use the same backdoor pass he helps us obtain, he probably fears she'll be trapped at underworld forever. At least he is a main aid for people to meet with the undead captain again.

Upon reaching the River of Stones, you can find Ophelia's (un)dead father. There he reveals he can't leave that wretched place in the stat he is, but points out that the woman next to him can help, but she won't talk to him.



Taeniuru, as she is called, offers assistance for community to help Ophelia meet with her father. She tells of an tale of love between a underwater princess and a fisherman and how the Princess used an Anchor of Binding to help her visit her beloved. She instructs people to look for the underwater kingdom and find the anchor to align with Ophelia and her be able to see her father. Here is how the tale goes:

"Legend amongst people that has been passed from generation to generation. A tale of star-crossed lovers, whose stations in life were so different that only through divine intervention could their paths have crossed. Alas, such love seldom leads to happiness, especially if it involves a lowly fisherman and a King's daughter. Theirs was love at first sight, birthed beneath the beaming moonlight along the far shores of Ilbon ((Japan)). The two did not get to enjoy happiness for long. Shortly after King found about them he forbade his daughter to ever see the fisherman again, imprisoning her in a underwater castle.

But where there's a will, there's a way. For in time Serena was able to see her beloved again. And what allowed her to do so was a special anchor that the Sea Princess came in possession of; most likely through a trade of some sort. This anchor is referred to as an Anchor of Binding, as it has a magical property of binding a person to its core. Wherever the anchor travels, the person bound to it may go with the help of a summoning ritual.

Now this story is at least a few hundred years old. The Princess and her fisherman are long gone by now, so the anchor is most likely gathering dust somewhere in her castle".

With help of the large fish, the Sea Princess, of Noxhil and the Old hermit, community was able to give Ophelia the Anchor of Binding. Therefore, she is finally able to meet with her father. What shall happen to this storyline? years will tell.

Destiny's new Primogen
Posted by: theSavior -- 3:35 AM EST
   
Last week the Primogen of Destiny clan, Pandemonium Upallnit, stepped down and handed the reins to Champion Bowtiesan.




Champion Bowtiesan proudly holds the Primogen of Destiny staff

Thank you Upallnit for your tenure and dealing with a sudden shift into leadership, and we look forward to seeing Bowtiesan help continue with Destiny's traditions in Koguryo.

A sudden storm...
Posted by: theSavior -- 2:34 AM EST
   
Not even two hours after the first reported drop of the Bulkkoch trident, the Kingdoms were hit with storms- sending the community into chaos ((Another server reset)).

Though no official report accompanied the storms, the most notable change is the reduction of the Bulkkoch trident's stats, and removal of its polearm-mimicking range. This is surprising to come so quickly, bringing the weapon to a much weaker state. Having a new, stronger polearm-like weapon may have made a difference in how (in)frequently mages are able to get hunts these days...


Though the stats themselves remain similar, the damage itself has been heartily reduced, as well as its range.

On a more positive note, it seems that now only the "Sea zingers" and the "Bulkkoch Sea King" will hoche your curses, protecting themselves from scourge. All creatures will still dispell randomly, but the rate seems to be much less frequent as well. Perhaps this means the caves will become a much more active hunting ground!

Thank you to Marauder Shinobi for providing the new stats of the Bulkkoch trident, and to Shikari IxSpYxI for providing information on the creature changes.

If any other changes are discovered please send an nmail through the winds, and also contact me through the greater scrolls ((theSaviorTK@gmail.com)). Thank you!

* A distant solar flare appears to have weakened some of the sea creatures. Are they now too easy? Still too hard? Only time will tell.

~*~

This reset has helped the Bulkkoch Sea King to find his trident, and thus the community can pilfer it from his dead body. The first finder of the Bulkkoch trident was Brandon, modeling it for us below.


Brandon holding the Bulkkoch trident


Stats of the Bulkkoch trident
!!These stats have since been reduced!! See post above!!

It is said to have the same swing radius as a polearm- and with those stats, that would make it a very powerful weapon. It is unknown at this time if there are higher levels of this weapon, though there are many who are sitting at the Sea King's throne in wait.


Shinobi tries to reason with the Sea King

The Bulkkoch Sea King will also call out for the creatures of the sea to come to his aid, but this doesn't seem to spawn any additional creatures at the moment.


Bulkkoch Sea King cries for aid

According to Shikari Hurm the Bulkkoch trident IS BREAK ON DEATH so make sure you get those item protects on it should you be lucky enough to grab one!

If any of the community comes up with more unique drops, weapon stats, or any information please let a staffer know and we can share it with the community!

* Ophelia needs your help to reunite with her father! Check Whispering winds for more information.

* A few minor updates
It appears that our old friends Noxhil and Lucretius Laframbois are at it again, trying to help little pirate girl by the name of Ophelia reunite with her father. Through the valiant efforts of local heroes that took them deep into the dungeons beneath Buyan Haunted House, Ophelia's father has been located.

Did you know Buya had Dinosaurs?
Posted by: Vini -- 7:04 PM EST
   
Did you know that millions of years ago, Buya was inhabitated by Dinosaurs? The recently returned Wildhair, a legendary former Shaman elder, provided us with proof of a T-Rex egg which she has had since early yuris, given to her by Enderwiggin.



The rumors of fossils and dinosaur bones being found has always been around, but in fact long ago when Buya city was being opened some dinosaur eggs were found: some big ones were raptor's eggs and tyranosaur's eggs.

Imagine what could happen if one of such eggs would fall in the hands of evil conjurers? Would Nexus become a Jurassic World? Nah! T-Rex and Velociraptors lived during Cretaceous peroid, so if anything it would turn us into Creaceous world.
