    As the ceremony approached its end, the King announced the changes he and Vales been working to expand the areas of activity of Koguryo Ministry. King M'hul announced that Vales is now Prime-Minister of Koguryo and that she overviews 5 ministry divisions:

    Princess Lasahn and Geumwa are married!
    Posted by: Vini -- 10:54 PM EST
    Last Saturday, citizens of the Kingdoms of Winds witnessed the most important wedding over the past years: Princess Lasahn's wedding with Lord Geumwa of Han, celebrated at Kinung Chapel. The ceremony was conferred prestige by the presence of King M'hul of Koguryo and King SuroKim & Queen Jeewon> of Kaya. Prince ChaeRi of Nagnang unfortunately was not present.

    Days before the wedding of His Royal Highness Princess Lasahn and Lord Geumwa began their preparations for the wedding. Lord Geumwa changes his haircut style. Princess Lasahn and her ministry had a Pre-Wedding Soiree on the hours that preceded the ceremony.

    As the wedding hour approached, the vibrant buildup of spectators within the ceremonial chapel, at first seemed a bit empty towards an event of such importance. Then, the crowds finally arrived, all intending on squeezing into the same small spaces closer to the sparkling altar. Some were locals, but many had traveled across kingdoms to be part of this historical moment. Those lucky or determined enough to grab the best vantage points were also caught by the ink & brush of Nexus Atlas.

    The ceremony commenced with a kaleidoscopic performance by Muses Guild of Buya, all dressed up as serpent dragons who danced to the resonant voice of Lady-in-waiting, Jolie.

    The sacrament was followed by the enchanting words of Shaman Elder Inrequietus who blessed the matrimonial of the royals. After the beautiful vows bestowed by the bride and the groom, the wedding was made official. The newly minted royal couple, Geumwa and Lasahn, shared a kiss before the anxious crowd who expected to witness the long waited dreamful moment of any lady.

    After the wedding ceremony ended, citizens were able to receive a legend mark stating that they were part of the ceremony which celebrated the Buya royal wedding.

    Woodlands Diary Update!
    Posted by: Loxie -- 12:47 AM EST
    I received this interesting note from Tessius. You may remember my previous post about the campfire, well now it has a purpose!

    These findings are directed especially towards those who've paid attention to the Woodlands Quest in the past several years. With the release of the Plate of Metal, the effort to solve this quest has halted completely as the recipe (the materials and their corresponding numbers) is absolutely uncorrelated with any of the contents within the diaries or clues that have been dropped in events in the past. While in the beginning, there were pockets of groups who attempted this quest in secrecy, we're probably best served if we take an open approach in solving this quest as it requires vigilance to the GM's cryptic clues in past events.

    The recent reset with the emergence of the Fire Camp gives us six new recipes to consider. While one recipe is theoretically completable with our current knowledge, the other five recipes raise even more questions about the quest. When one stands next to the Fire Camp and uses a Diary (ie. Original Diary 1, etc), it reveals the following recipes. Once using the Diary, the Fire Camp disappears and re-spawns as mentioned in the community board every ~30 minutes.

    The only Diary that does not work this way is the Original Binding - there are no recipes affiliated with it using the approach mentioned above.

    We hope this fuels collaborative efforts to complete the Woodlands Quest.

    Geumwa's Midnight Stroll
    Posted by: Ushallfeerme -- 1:24 PM EST
    I had a chance encounter with the Royal from Han, Geumwa, Lastnight. Upon following him, I discovered he
    appeared to be trying to Serge, the man at the Buya Salon. Geumwa wanted a haircut! Serge took real good
    care of him, and Geumwa was satisfied with his new style. Geumwa then went to the Southern gate of Buya,
    where he was quite displeased with the defensive measures.

    He did not understand why there were no guards, and why the gate was open to everyone. He thought that
    people should have to give notice to come and go from Buya.

    By the end of our conversation, one thing was very clear; Major changes are on the way. He spoke of the lack
    of defense Buya had. He also spoke of his disapproval of Mu'Hyul's methods of ruling. He said he heard Mu'Hyul
    was a poser. That he tries to please everyone. He's too soft of a ruler, and does not rule like he should.

    It seems Geumwa will have some very strict rules when he becomes ruler over Buya. One must wonder, just how
    strict will he be? Will Geunwa be a complete tyrant? Or will he simply make sure things are much more secure
    for his citizens? What exactly are his intentions? And what about Lasahn!? Will she no longer have a say in
    matters at all?

    I suppose we will all see very soon...

    Upcoming Buya Wedding
    Posted by: Vini -- 10:22 PM EST

    The wedding of Princess Lasahn and Lord Geumwa will take place at Kinung Chapel on Saturday, September 15th at 10 PM EST. Please be sure to arrive early if you're willing to attend.

    You are cordially invited to attend the union of Princess Lasahn Ling Chun Senshi and Lord Geumwa of Han. This is a joining of hands that will no doubt echo through the kingdoms for all of time; a ceremony that will delight and intrigue.

    Two great lands will strengthen a bond with love. The Princess has many fond memories of Han, those that her father also shared.

    Princess Lasahn wishes for everyone to join her on this day. A day that will celebrate Buya's great power, romance, and a bright future for the Empire and its citizens. The Princess assures us that this will only bring strength and prosperity to the Empire.

    The ceremony will take place at the Grand Chapel in Kinung. All are welcome, but there will be a zero tolerance policy for interruptions.

    Nexus Atlas will be there to cover the most important ceremony if the year!

    Grab the S'mores
    Posted by: Loxie -- 6:14 PM EST
    Knoodel found a campfire on the loose in the Woodlands! It can be killed, but takes forever and gives no experience. Apparently the thing moves around as well. There is currently no information on what it drops, or it's purpose, but it's assumed the campfire is some sort of clue to the Woodlands Diary Quest.
