Royals marks and Lasahn's pregnancy

King MuHyulQueen YunQueen LasahnKing GeumwaPrince ChaeRi

King M'hul of Koguryo, Queen Lasahn of Buya and Prince ChaeRi of Nagnang gained new legend marks identifying they’re royals to their kingdoms. Check them out:


It’s not known if these marks are just to help younger citizens to easily identify them or if they grant royals with new abilities. What is known is that King Geumwa of Buya and Queen Yun of Koguryo also got these marks.

These marks come handy as the ministry of Buya recently announced at Chronicles of the Winds that Queen Lasahn is pregnant. Therefore, soon enough we might see a baby prince or princess running around with this mark too.

Congratulations Queen Lasahn, soon be mommy and congratulations as well to King Geumwa.

Article: The impending disband of Elendhirin clan
Posted by: Vini -- 4:29 PM EST
   
Thursday, October 24, 2002 - It was a historical day for Nexus! Elendhirin clan, led by Primogeness Rhianwyn, became the first player created clan within 3 years. The last one was Dharma clan at 1999. For you to understand this chronology, it's important to understand that Koguryo Army, Buya Army and The Forsaken clan were created by Immortals/Nexon and not by players.

Therefore, Elendhirin was a division of waters. While for years there was only room for seven clans, as announced by Nexon, Elendhirin emerged as the 8th official clan created by players and became the first one to be approved with the current clan approval system, voted by primogens.

"The Children of Twilight", was how Rhianwyn, Saurumo and Koutaul the three founders of the clan, called their members.



During its 13 years of existence, Elendhirin was known for being a clan very attached to its story and roleplay. It harbored several amazing members and participated through the history of Buya.


Monday, January 26, 2015 - Nexus wakes up bleeding and crying with the news that Elendhirin clan is shutting its doors. After over a year of failing to meet the quota of minimum 70 members and recovering just before reaching 90 days period of probation.

During Santa Mhul's festivities and Wisdom star the numbers grew a bit, shortly after that, they fell under quota again. But this time, after years of struggling, they've realized it's time to quit trying to fight against the inevitable: Elendhirin has to disband.

Seeing Elendhirin in such situation is truly heart breaking, but after jumping on a few conclusions about their decision, I took a moment to speak with Primogeness Seasona and hear why Elendhirin reached this point. Here is what she had to say:

The decision was made not by me alone, but by me and the whole council. We also asked all kindred to see if there's anyone who would want to step up and help. We didn't get any. Our events wouldn't give us tribute points because we were often under quota and under probation. The other primogens have seen the pain we've gone through for over a year.
We begged for referrals, offered coins of our own banks for referrals. This is only one of the few things to show how I strongly believed in Buya and my clan succeeding. We pushed to get involved on a national level by coworking with Buya Army.

This kept going up to a point we realized it was pointless to keep trying. We finally made the most difficult decision of our Nexus lives. Therefore, the elendhirin council decided it was time to close doors, but we wanted to do this gracefully and with some dignity, not kicking everyone like it was done with Shadows.

Our plan was to announce that we were disbanding, have a heartfelt ceremony acknowledging all the work our members and past members devoted to the clan over the past years and acknowledging the sacrificed of our current members in hopes to save the rest of clans in danger, by scattering our kindred through out the land and splitting our bank among the other clans and ministries
, reveals Primogeness Seasona.


The situation with the clan doesn't seem to be set in stone yet. During last night tribunal, it seems that even though the Primogens voted to disband the clan, the fact that Elendhirin "escaped" the probation recently, it granted them a longer after life.

After talking to a few primogens from different kingdoms, we could conclude that the archons are handling the situation according to the rules. They couldn't reveal much details about it, but it all points that next tribunal will be decisive for Elendhirin.

While then, it's important to remember that what is discussed inside Clan Tribunals or Elder meetings are to remain just for those present. Therefore, Nexus Atlas will not disclose any other information about this situation until an official royal decree is published.


Will Elendhirin doors shut forever?

I personally am hoping that the clan will survive this.

Scattering of the Stars

This post brings me no excitement or joy. It is with great disappointment that the stars of Elendhirin have scattered during these dark times, in the hopes of bringing their light to the other clans of Buya.

During a tour with Elendhirin, I gleaned more information on the situation that caused dissent in Buya. Primogen Seasona shared the sad news with me.




Tour with Elendhirin Primogen Seasona


For the past year they've been struggling with quota and probation. They were frequently able to just make quota and survive probation, only for their numbers to drop immediately after. With great deliberation, and the unanimous support of the Buya Primogens they decided to close. Most of their kin have already departed for other clans.

Primogen Seasona feels this disbanding is in Buya's best interest, as their numbers were so low they couldn't even host an event, but distributed to the other clans they may be able to help make a difference. She also thinks the clans of other kingdoms will see the benefit in culling the clans, and how it can bring new growth to the stronger clans.

Elendhirin has a lovely hall, and I would like to thank Seasona for giving me a tour. We spoke about a tribute to Elendhirin before its closing, or an open house for the remainder of their time. Unfortunately neither of these seem to be possible.

Primogen Seasona has a parting message to her clan:

My Stars, burn bright, wherever you may be.

Elendhirin has changed so much since I last saw their hall, nine years ago. It's a terrible loss to the Nexus community, and it makes me wonder if the closing of this clan will show KRU the need to make some changes.

This is a relatively historic moment, as tragic as it may be. Will it be a turning point for the community, or will we continue to lose heart? Will KRU take steps to improve the community?

There have been hiccups in their disbanding. This was supposed to be their last night, but there have been issues with the disbanding process.

Whatever happens, we wish Elendhirin the best.

A Turbulent Tribunal
Posted by: ShuZu -- 1:30 AM EST
   
There was quite a stir at tonight's Buyan Tribunal. In a meeting over the potential dissolution of the Elendhirin Clan, a fight among the Buyan Tribunal members and Archon Horus broke out. While NexusAtlas has not reached out for comments from any of the tribunal members nor Horus, a letter was tacked on RT written by Meditrina.


Alright, so bear with me here while I explain what happened as clearly and concisely as I can.

Elendhirin is a Buyan clan who for some time has struggled with keeping membership numbers above 70, the imposed quota by KRU and the Archons. After much discussion and debate with her Council, Primogen Seasona decided that the clan was beyond saving and encouraged her Kindred to seek homes in other clans who were scraping by numbers-wise.

Fast forward to Sunday's tribunal. All clans were present with representatives, as was Minister Biondeu, Queen Lasahn, and archons HeRan and Horus. The normal proceedings went smoothly until the subject of Elendhirin was brought up.

Seasona related to the rest of us that it was their intention to close. This was met by a unanimous 'yes' vote by each and every representative in the Tribunal. Horus began by explaining the procedures by which a clan may close: One is by not keeping membership above quota for the prescribed amount of time, and the second is by a unanimous vote by all Primogens.

The second route was obviously invoked, and all votes were taken. But wait! Horus' rules, which are not anywhere in writing for Primogens or others to see, state that the first Tribunal is for speaking about "pros and cons" of a clan closing. The second tribunal is where the votes take place, after which the motion goes to GMs and Archons to act upon.

Mind you, after Horus' parroting of these precise procedures MULTIPLE times, not once was there any mention of any prescribed wait time between Tribunals #1 and #2. So, once all "pros and cons" were discussed, which even Horus agreed the part was satisfied per the rules, Biondeu motioned to vote on having the second Tribunal, and thus the vote, tonight.

Horus immediately told us that would not happen, and began spouting rules that it must be next week, while there was no such rule stated ANYWHERE.

What ensued was as follows: Biondeu proceeded regardless of Horus' complaints otherwise, and was summoned outside of Tribunal for what has been relayed to me as "threats" of jail, silencing, etc.

This repeated about five times, after which Biondeu and Horus returned. Horus silenced the entire room -- whispers and all -- and told us that the next Tribunal would be as normally-scheduled. The room-wide silence was again removed, and we defiantly proceeded with our vote, as the agreed-upon time for the second Tribunal had come.

Biondeu fell to silence, and it was learned via a known alt of Biondeu that he had a week-long silence placed upon him.

Take from it what you will, but this is precisely what happened. Screenshots were taken by myself and many others of the ridiculousness that occurred, and all of this because Primogen Seasona wanted to end her clan with a bit of dignity.

We will have updates to this situation as more information is available.
