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!

Note: In January 2006, NexusAtlas moved to a new server and a new ISP. In that process the software that manages our news archives dropped its links. We do not know exactly why that happened nor are we able to fix it without support from someone who knows the software. Therefore, we are calling news prior to March 2006 "Archived News" and it can be accessed by the link below.

Weird happenings in the land of Koguryo.
Posted by: Songa -- 11:27 PM EST

It seems that King Muhyul has been doing a bit of investigating.
He has seemed to discover a few scrolls in the library which
may potentially map out a system of caverns.

Here is a copy of General NeoCloud's letter:

A few days ago King Mhul and a few of the Ssaurabi guard ventured
out past the western gate of Kugnae. His intentions were to investigate
the content of a series of scrolls from the library involving a system of
caverns. The troops left from the palace and into the densely forested
area west of the gate. What they would find gives us reason to worry.
After traveling a distance into the forest they came across a large entrance
to a cavern blocked by a large boulder. Though try as they might, the
stone wouldn't budge or break. Giving up on the endevor for the moment,
the King and troops gathered their things to return to the palace when
out from the woods stepped a dark creature.

The sky grew dark, but the creature was darker. Though it was very
difficult to make anything out about the creature, it stood at a height of
two men and had two dark, glowing eyes that peered back at the men
before it. The soldiers reacted to protect the King and went after the
creature, but it ducked away back into the forest from which it came.
With that the King and troops returned home...

According to the scrolls, these caverns are part of an old military ritual
of the ancient armies. However, the entrance only appears when the
heavens are in a particular alignment and the moon is blue. That time
approaches very soon and what may come from that cave we can only
guess. Most certainly this creature is also a part of the cavern somehow.

I want increased patrols around the kingdom until this issue is resolved.
If you see anything at all relating to this creature or any more information
on the caverns in question, you are to report it to me at once!

Be on your guard, soldiers!
-General NeoCloud

What could this mean? Could the caverns reveal a sinister force within?

Thank you to Musketeer for this information.

Wedding Results!
Posted by: Songa -- 11:50 PM EST

Before the wedding, everyone was able to pick out a set of balooms!
Though they will not last, so treasure them while you can~

You were allowed to pick from a variety of sets, but
only allowed to have one!

As the wedding began, Shoshun walked down the aisle, adorned
in a beautiful gown and hairstyle. She was ravishing!

Peach came out of her home in the Chapel to perform the marriage herself!
After many lovely words were spoken, Peach announced that -- finally -- Kiyuu
and Shoshun were man and wife!

Shoshun's sisters, Father Time and Mother Earth all gathered around the newly weds
to share their joy.

Father Time approached Kiyuu and gave him his first pair of Immortal Wings!

Many wishes to the happy couple! May they find their new life together a happy one. :)

Thank you to Pantho for providing some of the pictures~
Thank you to nihilism for providing the baloom pictures!

Broke the Seal of N'ngh Zan Quest
Posted by: AllyGator -- 6:59 AM EST


Before using the Spell scrolls you must 'kill' the Seal first. You must get its vita down to full black and see the death graphic to know that it is dead.

You must have already Vanquished Overlord B'Gnngh as a requirement for the Break the Seal of N'ngh Zan quest.

Hunt Seal guardians to collect Spell scrolls for each totem. To unlock the seal you must have all 4 Spells. You need a minimum of 4 people to use the spells. You must stand at the correct place around the Shrine. Use Spell of Hyun moo on north side; Spell of Chung ryong on east side; Spell of Ju jak on south side and Spell of Baekho on the west side. This kills the Seal and it disappears for a short time. You do not have to be grouped to enter Nngh'Zan's Seal room.

To enter everyone must stand on a purple tile otherwise you will not enter. Perhaps only 12 can enter at one time. Each side of the shrine has 3 tiles.

Mug says this is buggy right now. One person got the legend mark without being grouped. It is not known if that is a bug. Be safe and group everyone.

If you have angry essences and get attacked with a fire spell the damage is reduced otherwise the attack is 20% vita. You can carry 100 angry essences to protect yourself which is very useful for warriors.

The blue Slog creature is called Bodyguard. It is very hard to kill the Bodyguard because you have to kill all 5 of seals BEFORE the Bodyguard while being attacked by scores of guardians.

The group shown had 2 mages, 2 rogues and 4 poets. They had a very rough time. Blind does not stop Seal guardians so bring more mages to paralyze them. People with less than 600K are likely to die often.

How to Make Broth
Posted by: AllyGator -- 5:04 AM EST


Use the Dae Shore NPC Gok-su to boil meats. You have a random chance of making broth. Boiled fish is not new but you can now have boiled chicken (restores 700 vita), boiled beef (restores 1500 vita) and boiled eggs (restores ?? vita).

You can boil items at any level but the success of creating Broth instead of boiled items is better with higher skill levels.

You do not need to have a cooking bowl in inventory but it helps. You can use egg, chicken and beef. Other meats have not been tested yet. The keyword is to say:
Boil egg
Boil chicken
Boil beef

Collecting Salt is better now. You do not lose Cloth now. You can also get more than one Salt from the same tile like you can get more ore in a single spot. Drop Cloth until you find Salt. TIP: Carry at least 2 Cloth so that Salt does not move the Cloth in your inventory.

Happy cooking! I'm hungry now.

Thanks to AnimeRage for this information.

Angry Ogres Has New Area
Posted by: AllyGator -- 11:09 AM EST

Last night someone found a new section in the Angry Ogre Cave. AnimeRage confirmed that his clan had also found the area and information given to Nexus Atlas. There is a huge new room south of Empty Quarry named The Final Seal. It contains 2 creatures both named Seal Guardian. The experience for them are 7k and 7m. One of them dropped a blue scroll called Spell of Chung Ryong. When the scroll is used it morphs the user into Chung Ryong (blue dragon). Our source said, "They eat essences!" He had one in his inventory and when he was attacked, it disappeared. There is a shrine like area in the far east of the new room but why it is there isn't known yet. Obviously there is a mystery here.

We're posting a small map of the area and Empty Quarry is the southern most room. You will need a Floating Ring of Substratum to enter the Angry Ogre section of this cave. It has been confirmed that Il san cannot and that Ee san can enter this area.

How is Your Crafting Going?
Posted by: AllyGator -- 12:45 AM EST

Guk-su has moved to Dae Shore and spends his time tending a huge cooking pot. He has the ability to discern how far you are from achieving your next level in crafting. Of course he has to make a living; for 1000 coins he will give you a report of your progress. If you want to make a tasty fish broth you can use the Cooking bowl he sells for 200 coins. Every time you manage to make broth you need 1 cooking bowl.

You will get the following messages which are listed in order by advances in skill levels:

1. You have just begun to perform [craft] at your current skill. Keep practicing.
2. You are improving in [craft], however you still have a long way to go.
3. You are close to becoming better at [craft].
4. You are about halfway to getting better at [craft].
5. You are more the half way to increasing your skill in [craft].
6. You have almost reached the next skill level in [craft].
7. You have reached legendary skill in [craft]. I don't see how you can get any better.

Thanks to Nussan for information about broth!

Server Reset and Opening of Tangun
Posted by: Moraghul -- 4:59 PM EST

Today, The NexusTK servers were reset and the following announcement was posted :

The hidden village of Tangun has been closed for some time now. Today while walking along the roads of Kugnae, I saw that the stones have been cleared away and the mist has risen once again. As I asked Ox about Tangun and he invited me to visit the lovely towns folk again. When I entered I noticed that the town has flourished and many new faces can be seen wondering the roads. There are more homes, a newly built Theatre, an elegant Chapel, and even an enchanted circle. So many more things to do! It seems all the new buildings have teachers in them. What an amazing town! This is defiantly great place for youngsters to mature!

Near a dark cave, I heard loud voices as young ones were gearing up to enter. I thought I would give them a few tips on hunting and casting spells so I walked over to them. They were eager to learn! I couldn't enter the cave myself but I felt glad to assist them in any way I could. I journeyed on to the beautiful waterfall I remember so well, passing many more caves on my way.

I urge you to take a trip to Tangun. You're in for a surprise when you visit! It's a whole new Nexus adventure!


Were also released new item-shop items such as Kimonos and a new mount: the Armored horse. I also believe the Experience Gem, which allows one to sell experience anywhere, was released during this reset.

There's currently a bug which makes some mounts like panthers unable to work (the collar won't do anything). Mug said he's working on it and it should be fixed very soon.

New Tutorial Comes Next Week! Event and Kruna Items soon!
Posted by: Vini -- 2:23 PM EST

It is confirmed. The new tutorial area will be open next week, with or without patch. Mug has confirmed via his personal page and although such out of nexus source isn't credible, we know the poster is.

So here is the issue, Kru still needs to do the patching to nexus change the login page, everything else seems to be ready to go done by Mug. He also talked about a new coming event which shall be spoken soon by royals. For those curious about it, stay tuned to Chronicles of the Winds as it is usually where they post about such matters.

He mentioned about new items being added to Kruna shop, interesting ones as he says. Also claims that Kru is growing and will start advertising soon and which is why they needed to have such new improved tutorial area. This only means a great future to nexus and a lot of hopes on the things to come.

Nexus Atlas will be covering such changes with much attention, so stay tuned. For those who would want to read more and directly from the source, you know where to find it.
