Update Preview - Kano Kielce

Image
Last week, IMC (Korea) has released a new update preview article - 업데이트 미리보기 - 영입NPC 카노 키엘체. The contents are also previewed in Frontier: Dec 2012.


1. Bristia 4th Scenario Quests
Added Bristia 4th Scenario quests. To start, you must move to Kielce after completing Bristia 3rd Scenario quests (involving J.D. recruitment). Simon and Veronif investigate further. The Resistance and the Blood Navy engage in conflict.



2. New Character - Kano Kielce (B1.5.9)
Added more Loli to the game - Kano Kielce. Kano is the aide of Blood Navy General, Reynolds. She is part of Bristia MCC team. See Blue Moon Waltz - Kano for more details on the character, and [캐릭터/스탠스] 카노 영입 퀘스트 for Kano Recruitment Quests.


Her stances are [Fortitudo], [Enhanced Tactics], and her unique [Storytelling]. A new weapon type - Encyclopedia - allows her to use the latter 2 stances. [Storytelling] is an attack stance which also debuffs enemy with [Stun], [Burn], and [Panic]. It also has a buff skill [Wall of Curan] that reduces e…

Merry Christmas!

Image
Sadly, since the world did not end on Dec 21, we just have to make do with another Christmas. At any rate, the Christmas event mission gives quite a good amount of Soul Crystals. See Christmas Event 2012 for details.

Such eschatological failure of prophecy has been parodied by Terry Pratchett in the form of the Apocralypse. 
The Apocralypse is the end of the world, so named because it is an apocryphal apocalypse, nobody is sure when it will happen, how it will happen, and whether it will happen in the here-and-now sense. The Tea-Time of the Gods, when the Ice Giants will march against them for the last time, probably without even giving them the lawnmower back first. [Source] Those who haven't read the Christmas excerpt from Pratchett's Hogfather can still read it here.

Wishing everyone Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Oh, and this is my blog's 1,000th post! Heheheh.

Journal - Panfilo the Wendigo

Image
Since the last journal entry 2 months ago, we have trained up a few more characters. Zarathustra (Lionel) and Lisbeth (BSI) were promoted to Master. We don't really remember who else gained level any more, but we finally updated the Family Profile. Panfilo the Chef was recruited, and renamed as Wendigo, after the cannibalistic winter spirit of the North American native culture. Together, they raised the family to Lv.54+3.
