Prophecies and Picture of Possible Future Event?!
Posted by: IcePixy -- 2:29 PM EST
Some folks may have noticed that the Frontpage image on Kru's website has changed!
It now shows what appears to be a ship crew - does this mean we can expect to be
invaded by Pirates in the near future?!

A few Diviner's also received Augury Visions, many wonder if these two are connected
in some way.

See the images and visions below:

Kru's front page picture:

My Augury Vision:

BOARD TITLE: Chronicles of the winds
FROM: IcePixy DATE: 2/24
SUBJECT: Augury Vision

In the midst of a conversation with one of my Waterborn within Oceana's hall, I once more felt myself gripped by the stomach-churning sensation of a god-given vision. My eyes changed from their normal pink hue to a swirling purple as the vision descended upon me with a vengeance.


I find myself standing in the midst of chaos, burning boulders crashed all around me and the shrieks of pain from those near me filled my ears. The smell of charred flesh reaches my nostrils, and I do my best not to gag.

As I begin to run through the carnage, a massive mountain rises before me and what appear to be shimmering stars twinkle at me. Yet, as I watch the stars, they begin to blink and I realize that perhaps these are not stars at all watching the ruination below.

I spin about on my heel, my head begins to swim as I struggle to complete the vision and I nearly run into a bearded man, his companions struggling to aid him in escaping from the looming vessel now before me. Water laps at my toes and the men shout at a distant figure still upon the sea-faring vessel now in the distance.

A giant wave of salty water hits me from behind and I am swallowed back into reality.


This vision came upon me so quickly, I barely had time to realize what was happening. I've jotted down as much as I can remember from the vision that I saw, I hope we can figure out what it means before it occurs!

Sieo's Augury Vision:

BOARD TITLE: Chronicles of the winds
FROM: Sieo DATE: 2/24
SUBJECT: Augury Vision

One of my students found me this morning apparently having wandered into the Diviner Circle in a trance. According to him, my eyes were white and I was singing the following two verses over and over again. He was kind enough to write them down for me and put me in a comfortable spot where I would not hurt myself or others.


Onward into forever the endless oceans roam
As the stones fall down from the sky.
Observing from the highest cliffs below the loam
A clan grows younger and wonders why.

Within the ocean tumult, observed from afar,
The raining earth has found an errant island.
As the people of this island swim for our shore
Their leader vows his feet shall never touch the sand.

The complete Changmu compilation
Posted by: Vini -- 11:40 PM EST
The stories of Changmu Town have many details and some unclear connections between the villagers and their stories that can be important to the investigation quest and may pass unnoticed by us if we don't pay enough attention to what they're saying. Therefore, as an effort to connect the pieces of the puzzle spread among hundreds of popups, we of Nexus Atlas have prepared a summary of the story of the event and each main part of the lore being told by the villagers of the new-found town. This not a walkthrough, this is a guide to the story, like we've done in the past to big events like the Ophelia saga, the pirate girl daughter of the undead captain. So, if you want to dig deeper into the storyline of the event, go ahead and enjoy your reading!

-- The Changmu Town --

Changmu is a secluded town hidden amidst a dark bamboo forest, which is part of Shilla kingdom, the first one that citizens of the Kingdoms of the Winds were able to visit and so far, seems to be the closest one to the three kingdoms. According to Jae Hui it has the largest and most popular cemetery in Shilla. People from all over Shilla kingdom go bury their family there.

According to Mayor Lioga, Changmu Town was founded many decades ago by his grandfather. It first began as a small funerary service to people of Shilla. However, when their third King began the tradition of visiting his ancestors buried there, shortly after the yearly pilgrimage of common people started and then became a tradition for people of Shilla to go there and pay respect to the graves of their ancestors.

Mayor Lioga mentions that with years it became the perfect place for the celebrations of Hangawi Festival due to the peculiar area they are located. Since the town is between mountains they don't get much sunlight. However, their unique moonlight view from the hills made it a very touristic place. According to Jae Hui it is the favorite location for tourists because of the amazing view of the moon. Mayor Lioga states that Changmu Town is Shilla's favorite touristic destination during the Hangawi Festival and according to him it is the town's main event of the year.

-- The Villagers of Changmu --

Jae Hui, Kwang and Ottong seem to be the caretakers of the Changmu Cemetery. Wyongzi seems to father to Kwang and Ottong and seems the three of them were the first ones attacked by Gangshi in the town. Wyongzi seems to have knowledge in arcane magic and divine magic, according to his son Kwang.

Zhen seems to be the eldest person in town and one who has traveled a lot during his life time. He seems to have stumbled upon the Diary quest of Nagnang Woodlands in one of his travels.

Fae Won, Jing Tai and Hwa Miri seem to be merchants of the town that make most of their money during the Hangawi Festival by selling their goods to tourists. Sentinel Eyngi seems to be the person in charge of town's security.

Yemaro seems to be a carpenter and Seung a seamstress. They seem to be married and have at least two children. The youngest one is Xismo, the boy who is afraid of scary costumes and who hopes to have a farm full of animals some day when he grows up. However, there is a lot of controversy about their other son. According to Jae Hui the eldest son used to stay at the Moonlight Hills for hours during the night howling to the moon pretending he was a wolf, but one day he never returned. Jae Hui claims he can still hear the howling coming from the hills sometimes and claims this whole subject is a sort of a taboo in the town.

-- The Changmu Town Council --

The Town Council is formed by councilors and Mayor Lioga. It seems one of the councilors stole the burial records and gave it to the Necromancer and started the whole problem. The reason for someone to do that is uncertain each of them has a reason to be suspects. Miss Viola suspects Professor Mulberry; the Professor suspects Mrs. Reseda; Reseda suspects Colonel Noir; the Colonel suspects Elder Grey; the old lady suspects Mr. Taupe and the religious man suspects it was Miss Viola.

-- The Hangawi Festival --

The Hangawi Festival is a three-day holiday celebrated in Shilla Kingdom, when "swarms" of people go to Changmu Town to dance, eat and drink with their families and come to pay respect to the graves of their ancestors. It is a major harvest festival done during Fall filled with traditions.

Some of these traditions are having a sort of riddles game to obtain a festival lantern and at some point, during the festival they have a traditional lantern walk. According to Seung they also hold an annual weaving contest called Gabae. Other traditions consist in drinking cassia wine, eating mooncake and according to Hwa Miri, a famous dish with colored rice cakes called songpyeon. Also, according to Jing Tai people from Shilla's Capital loved to purchase his unique clothing tinctures: charcoal and teal made from charcoal rocks and moss clumps obtained from inside Turtle shell cave.

However, according to Mayor Lioga, the Hangawi Festival this year was disaster. Monsters started roaming around in Changmu Town and attacking people. Therefore, citizens from Shilla Kingdom's Capital were afraid to go to Changmu for the Festival that year. Not just that, but seems that King Gima of Shilla issued a quarantine and ordered his guards to block the main road to Changmu to protect the citizens of the Capital, isolating them and abandoning Changmu villagers to their own fate.

-- The Kangsee/Gangshi --

According to Zhen Gang'shi (Or Kangsee depending on pronunciation) means "stiff corpse", as their limbs are too stiff to move. They are reanimated corpses of buried people who become possessed by malicious spirits and who according to Ottong can consume a person's life energy very quickly if attacked by one. According to Kwang they absorb the Qi of living beings, sucking people out of their life force until the person becomes a Gangshi like them.

They are afraid of their own reflection so using magic brozen mirrors imported from Han or Tao mirrors created with the help of Geomancers can weaken them substantially. Some other items they found to be useful to counter the Gangshi were Jujube seeds (daechu seeds), red mung beans (adzuki beans/geuru pat), vinegar, wolf's blood, and rice flour, which are all used as a thick ointment they use on their skin. According to Kwang they also attack mostly at night since they seem to be afraid of sunlight.

According to Mayor Lioga and other sources at Changmu Town, these "hopping" corpses were raised from their graves using supernatural arts to bring forth an army of the dead, being an enchanted by a mysterious necromancer.

The issue with corpses raising from the gave isn't only happening at Changmu Town. The necromancer seems to be raising corpses from Wilderness Graveyard, Buya Catacombs, Nagnang Burial Grounds and and one of the Koguryo's Crypts too. Therefore, the community of the Kingdoms of the Winds has joined forces with the villagers of Changmu to try to solve their common problem.

According to Jae Hui the Mayor ordered the Turtle Shell cave located at Moonlight hills to be magically sealed by Wyongzi, since the cave is infested with more dangerous Gangshi, that don't have talisman on their face. Inside the cave there's also a Gangshi beast, which seems to be the body of cats taken by malicious spirits.

-- Turtle Shell Cave --

According to Jae Hui, the Turtle Shell Cave is called like that because looks like the drawings they saw about the legend of Hyeonmu, the dark warrior, who some claim to be a black tortoise entwined with snakes. Clearly, he means the Hyun Moo Totem, but since they never saw Hyun Moo they believe it's just a legend.

-- Jangseung --

The Jangseung (village guardian) is a totem pole usually made of wood. Jangseungs are traditionally placed at the edges of villages to mark for village boundaries and frighten away demons. They are also worshiped as villages tutelary deities.

The ones in Changmu Town were carved by Yemaro, but Zhen the eldest person in the town used some of his magical skills to create two binding talismans that send people close to the ones at north and south boundaries of the town.

-- The Necromancer --

The identity of the necromancer is still a mystery to Nexus community, although many people mention him, we don't know his name or where he comes from. Zhen claims that the necromancer a person who he knew long ago and who has returned from death and is trying to raise an army of the dead. He also considers the possibility that the necromancer might be an evil spirit who possessed the embalmed corpse of his friend. This is an evidence that Zhen saw the Necromancer raising the corpses or perhaps Wyongzi did and told him. Seems the necromancer is using the burial records of the town as a way to know where to bring corpses back from.

I wish we had finished this summary sooner, but it's a very big event and we were mostly trying to get all aspects of main quest and side-quests walk-through first and the map schemes too. If you were a brave survivor who read this whole post whisper me a high five.

  • Southern Nagnang area

  • Inside Nagnang Haunted House

  • The Gorge & Bridge to Shilla

  • Changmu Bamboo Forest area

    The Forsaken Clan New Primogeness!
    Posted by: IcePixy -- 8:26 PM EST
    Sieo of Forsaken clan has passed the torch of Primogenship to Wulfie!

    Sieo had this to say:

    Dear Community,

    "It has been my privilege to serve as the Primogeness of The Forsaken
    and as The Knight of Nagnang for the last number of months. In that time,
    I annoyed many but many more expressed a level of love and support that
    I will treasure for many years to come. I hope that the community shows
    the same love and support to Primogeness Wulfie and hope that her reign is
    a long and glorious one filled with wonderful moments and memories being
    created for all to enjoy.

    I will still be around if anybody has need of Diviner services or Forsaken Clan
    services but now is the appropriate time for me to retire from the politics of

    Long live The Forsaken!
    Long Live Nagnang!

    Sieo Bijeon"

    Primogen Wulfie unfortunately didn't have anything to say in regards to her
    newest position as Primogen of Forsaken, however she did grace us with a
    lovely picture!

    Nexus Atlas wishes Prophet Sieo and Primogen Wulfie the best of luck on both of
    their newest journies!

    Event "Easter Eggs"
    Posted by: Vini -- 8:46 PM EST
    While the event has a lot of stories told by the multiple NPCs, some of them hide some very interesting "easter eggs". No, I don't mean chocolate eggs during Halloween, but instead "easter eggs" as intentional inside joke or a hidden messages in their speeches.

  • The first one that was found is the last popup by Sentinel Eyngi. "It's dangerous to go alone! Take this", which is a famous quote from first game of Zelda series.

  • The main one, however is a reference to the popular board game Clue. Six suspects with names referencing colors and including a professor and a Colonel. They even accuse each other using places and objects of the game.

  • The other one was found by Washington, who noticed that Zhen closes his popup speech with "fear cuts deeper than swords", which is a line of the Songs of Ice and Fire series.

    Could you find another one? Let us know!

    Silver Talisman Side-Quest
    Posted by: Vini -- 11:35 PM EST
    Event Part 9: The Truth of Silver Talisman

    It seems the mystery of the Silver talisman has finally been uncovered. It works as combined form of yellow scroll and kindred talisman, just like the Qui-Hyang and the Li key. The secret to create one lies with the founder of the Diviners: Silk.

    To find her go to Diviner area at Kugnae 126,168 then enter the door at northwest of Tao te Ching room into Tai Chi room and from there walk towards northeast of the g'oh board into a hidden room called Hsien Courtyard. There you'll find Silk.

    If you ask her about "Silver talisman" she will reply with:

    To obtain a Silver talisman you'll need to bring her the following items:
  • Silver tree branch - (1)(woodcutting ginko trees)
  • Yellow scroll - (100)(any tavern)
  • Kindred talisman - (50)(any clan hall)
  • Cemetery talisman - (12)(Changmu cemetery)
  • Graveyard talisman - (12) (Wilderness cemetery; 2,153)
  • Crypt talisman - (12) (Kugnae cemetery; southern koguryo 022,11; crypt 003,019)
  • Burial talisman - (12) (Nagnang cemetery; 140,04)
  • Catacomb talisman - (12) (Buya cemetery; islets 22,68)

    Here is how using it looks like:

    This part of the quest was discovered by ManlyGuy. According to him what made him discover that the secret of the Silver talisman lied with the Diviners were the following hints: Kwang, the guy next to cemetery entrance says that with the help of my father's (Wyongzi) knowledge in arcane magic and divine magic we could seal the most dangerous Gangshi inside the cave. Also, Yemaro kept saying that he wanted to find the truth about making silver talismans, then changed to "I always wondered about the truth about making silver talismans". The reason why "truth" is a keyword clue in this quest is due to Diviner subpath's philosophy. They believe that truth is the key and knowledge and truth lead to enlightenment. Well, this time knowledge and truth led us to the Silver talisman!

    Other than that, it looks more obvious now that we know the answer, but Diviners' dye is silver.
    A special thanks to Frenya for nmailing me with information of this discovery and to Supreme for giving most of his graveyard talismans, that he had been collecting for hours, so ManlyGuy could get his well-deserved Silver talisman.

    Useful Event Items: Mooncake, Cassia wine and Songpyeon
    Posted by: Vini -- 10:55 PM EST
    While the event occurs after the period of Hangawi Festival in Shilla, it is interesting to notice that some traditional items of the festival are available for us to try out and some of them are very useful. He are three of them, which have interesting descriptions given out by the villagers of Changmu Town: mooncake, cassia wine and songpyeon.

    The Mooncake is a tender pastry biscuit filled red bean and lotus seed paste. People of Shilla believe that eating it every year ensures longevity.

    Mooncake can be bought from Fae Won costs 10,000 coins it heals 20% of vita and casts longevity spell, which makes character immune to poison, scourge etc. for 20 seconds.

    The Cassia wine is made from sweet osmanthus flowers and the taste is a bit like peach with a bit of cinnamon. The families that visit Changmu Town drink it celebrating as 'reunion wine', except for children. They also believe it helps with longevity as it cures various diseases and rejuvenates the mind and body.

    Cassia wine can be bought from Fae Won costs 10,000 coins it heals 20% of mana and casts clear mind spell, which dispels all negative spells on you.

    Songpyeon is a rice cake colored with pine tree nuts, which gives this exotic colored look and taste. They're made from brown rice with black beans, mung beans, honey, pine nut, chestnut, walnut, daechu seeds, sesame seeds and cinnamon. According to Hwa Miri they are made to celebrate experience gained in a year's harvest.

    Songpyeon can be made with Hwa Miri's quest and restores 100% vita without being consumed. You can eat it again after a period. However, Hwa Miri alerts that those who make one should eat it before the end before winter arrives, or else it might get rotten and you'll lose it. This means this item might not be a permanent addition.

    More Findings at Changmu Town - Spare Skin and Vacant Soul usage
    Posted by: Vini -- 8:51 PM EST
    Event Part 8: Fast-Track to Diary Page 2 Ingredients

    While searching for more information on the new event item, Frenya uncovered a hidden or overlooked part of Changmu Town event. It seems Zhen has been saying that never in his travels he has seen something like the Kangsee/Gangshi. While most people never bothered to ask him about his travels, Frenya decided to do it today and it worked. He responds when you ask about Travels.

    Oh, yes I've traveled a lot during my life-time. I've seen many kingdoms and seen many places.
    Once when I was traveling through Nagnang Woodlands I came across some diary pages.
    I was able craft a footguard based on the first page, but I was never able to pass the second page.
    What I found strange was the growing interest of Druids in spare skins and of Shamans in vacant souls,
    says Zhen.

    Immediately after finding this Frenya went to Druid's Sacret Grove and started asking around about 'Spare skin', she found out that Cluichi room responds when you ask about "Spare skin". He says he can trade 10 spare skin for a snake skin mesh. Spare skin is dropped by Gangshis at Turtle Shell Cave and Kangsees at the cemeteries, graveyards, catacombs, etc.

    After such finding, Frenya and Spiri went to Valley of Mudang where Sarvari trades "Vacant Soul" for tortured human souls. The vacant souls are dropped by Gangshi Beasts, the boss creature of Turtle Shell Cave that spawn on rooms 9 and 10 of the cave.

    What is interesting to notice is that these two items are among the ingredients required to make the tier 2 item from Diary Page 2. Along with Snake skin mesh and Tortured human soul the other necessary items are: Focused fire amber, Plate of metal, Amber, Yellow amber, Medium ju jak ring, Tao stone and Winter potion. It's not known the amounts of each yet, but with an increasing number of snake skins mesh and tortured human soul getting to the market perhaps more people will adventure in trying out combinations. Has anyone seen DarkCrystal?

    Server Reset changes Moon dagger stats and adds new item
    Posted by: Vini -- 2:12 PM EST
    It seems there has been a quick reset this morning that has done changes to Moon daggers stats. The changes were to durability, repair and deposit costs. The durability has raised from 80,000 to 300,000 and the cost to repair them is significant lower as well as the deposit costs, however they're still progressive, meaning that Solid moon dagger costs more than new moon dagger. Here's a copy of the post in Dream Weaver's board:

    BOARD TITLE: Dream Weaver
    FROM: NexusTK DATE: 11/10
    SUBJECT: Quick Reset - Nov. 10th, 2017
    - Moon dagggers stat updated.

    - A new event item added.

    Another thing people noticed is that the rock objects in Changmu Town and Murky Bamboo Forest are no longer pushing us back when trying to walk over them.

    However, the most exciting part of this rest notes is a mention of a new event item being added. So far no new drops have been found yet, so some people suspect that it might be the Silver Talisman that Yemaro mentions when explaining the Jangseung talismans. After the reset his final popup changed look:

    He says: "And, you know I always wondered about the truth about making silver talismans. Now, I know and I am happy".

    Before he used to say "Now if I could only find the truth about making silver talismans. Ummmm.... that would be interesting".

    So what's the truth behind the Silver talismans?
