New with C3 is the Seven Signs competition. This will be a description
of what the war of dawn and dusk means to the players: what are the benefits
of joining sides, which side to join, what the effects of the competition
As the Seven Seals that bind the power of Shilen, Goddess of Death, are
opened one by one, the world moves closer to the brink of chaos. Each
Seal contains a great power that can make the world tremble. The one who
opens the Seals can control the power contained within them. The Revolutionary
Army of Dusk and the Lords of Dawn compete against each other toward this
end. Players join one of these two cabals, which vie for control over
the power of the Seals.
An unlimited number of players can join the Seven Signs quest, which
repeats in two-week intervals. By participating in the Seven Signs, players
are given to the opportunity to shape their server in ways that were not
possible until now.
The war between the Cabals is between those who hold a castle and those
who do not. Players who have not yet reached their second occupation fall
into the neutral group and may participate in either side.
Joining and Withdrawing from the Seven Signs Cabals
Players who want to participate in the Seven Signs must join one of the
Cabals, either the Revolutionary Army of Dusk (hereinafter "Dusk")
or the Lords of Dawn (hereinafter "Dawn"). Once they join one
of the Cabals, it is impossible for them to withdraw until a new Seven
Signs starts after two weeks. At the time they join, they must vote upon
the Seal they wish to possess.

time, the Lord of each castle may purchase an additional 300 Approval
Certificates through the Chamberlain and transfer them to other characters.

Characters who joined a Cabal may participate in the competition period
from the first Monday until the Monday of the following week. Each Cabal
may hunt the Seven Signs monsters (Lilim, Nephilim, Lilith, and Gigant),
within the Catacombs and Necropolis to acquire Seal Stones. They
can participate in two kinds of competitions: acquiring items necessary
for their Cabal, and participating in the Festival of Darkness.
Collecting Seal stones (Blue, Green, and Red)
Each Cabal may hunt monsters within the Catacombs and Necropolis
to acquire Seal Stones. Items acquired in this way are entrusted to the
Priest of each side. Scores contributed to the Priests by each player
are accumulated and included in the total score of the whole Cabal. [Contribution
points to the Cabal will be different based on stone color: Blue (1),
Green (5), and Red (10)]. Seal Stones are items that can be exchanged
among players. Even if these items are not entrusted to the Priest during
the competition period, they do not disappear and can be used during the
next competition period. Players hunt the monsters in Necropolis' or Catacomb
to get Seal Stones.
The Festival of Darkness
Among the players participating in the Festival of Darkness, the party
that records the best score in each level will contribute points to their
Cabal. The Festival of Darkness is divided by level and any players belonging
to either of the Cabals can participate.
A party comprised of 5 to 9 members participates in the Festival of Darkness.
- How to Participate: Players may participate only during the competition
period. The party wishing to participate should pay Seal Stones to the
Guide of the Festival in the Oracle. Priests in towns will teleport
you to the Festival for free. Entry fees vary depending on level, and
must be paid by party leaders. Parties must consist of a minimum of
5 members belonging to the same Cabal. Members of each party must correspond
to the level of the Festival in which they want to participate. Characters
who correspond to the level of the Festival, but who have higher level
skills than the party members, may not participate. This happens when
the character is de-leveled, but his skills learned from the previous
higher level remain. These challenges are always possible during the
competition period and there is no limit in the number of challenges.
- Place of the Festival: During the Festival, items are not dropped
on death and experience loss is reduced by one-fourth. However, chaotic
players may still drop items upon death. In the center magic array of
the Festival, recovery of MP is faster than elsewhere. Players can be
teleported to the Festival and can return to their original location
free of charge through the Priest of each village. Upon death, players
restart inside the room. The place where the Festival of Darkness occurs.

less than a 65 level and an unlimited level.
- For each level listed below, pay the indicated amount of either Blue,
Green or Red Stones.
||Blue Seal Stones

Teleporting to the battleground is possible only two minutes before
the Festival of Darkness begins. Once enrollment is completed through
the Festival Guide, parties are immediately teleported to the Festival
location. After two minutes of prep time, the Festival begins and
continues for 18 minutes while the participants kill the monsters
and collect the 'Blood of Sacrifice'. The number collected corresponds
to the score registered in the Festival of Darkness. All of the 'Blood
of Sacrifice' acquired from the hunt is automatically given to the
During the Festival the party leader will obtain 'Blood of Sacrifice'.
If the party feels the need to leave the Festival early they can
do so via the Festival Witch located in the center of the room. If
they think the Festival needed added challenge, then they can request
stronger minions from the Festival Witch. The stronger the monster
killed, the more Blood of Sacrifice they can acquire.
If pets are used to hunt in the Festival then the drop chances for
Blood of Sacrifice will be lowered.
- Registering Your Score: After the Festival ends, the leader of the
party must register the result to the Guide of the Festival within 40
minutes. Please note that if the party fails to register within this
time, the result will become invalid. If the registered result is lower
than the previous highest record, the record is not updated.
- Prize: After the competition period ends and their Cabal has won,
party members who set the highest score for each grade can receive Ancient
Adena as compensation from the Festival Guide. Although a party may
set the high score for a specific level, they cannot receive a prize
if the Cabal they belong to loses. Please note that the prize is paid
only before the start of the next competition period.
End of the Competition Period, Victory and Defeat
Determination of Victory and Defeat
Victory is determined by combining the high scores recorded in the Festival
of Darkness along with the amount of Seal Stones each Cabal has entrusted
to their priest.
Settlement of Ancient Adena

their Seal Stones and did not turn them in, they are still able to turn
them into the Priest in exchange for Ancient Adena. The only time one
may receive Ancient Adena is if they are on the winning Cabal of this
particular Seal Period. The losing side may not turn in their Seal Stones
until their Cabal is able to win a competition period.

the general stores by paying with Ancient Adena to the Priest of Dusk

new winner must receive 35% or more of the total votes to obtain it. If
the vote is less then 35% then they cannot own the Seal.
