Hello I am Killeh smile.gif as you may or may not know, I draw portraits and I'd like to do a painting
(big enough to fit a widescreen monitor's wallpaper) of some of the community! I'd like to include
one of each subpath, including NPC subpaths, so that's 16 people (perhaps with the royals, just for
fun[THE GHOST OF KIJA PAST WOOOoooOOooOOo]).

Please vote for one-three people for each category. They do NOT have to be the current or past elders
or guides, but I'd prefer that even if they are not registered that they are still in the path. I would
ask that you choose the best representation of each path and if you can't think of that, then please
choose who you think is the most famous (good/bad/neutral) or your favorites, or just whomever you
like (even yourself!), but realize that I WILL need a screenshot of the person or a very good description
(I can also use the "internet archive" if I have to).

EDIT: If you don't want other people to see your vote, you my PM or Nmail me your votes <3
EDIT 2: Please only choose people for the following Subpaths as the rest have been decided upon
and I am happy with the vote numbers on the chosen people. As much as I'd like to, I can
not please everyone, so I'm sorry if you super-disagree with the chosen people. If you
can rally enough people to change a subpath's representative, then go for it, but I will NOT
change Muse or Geomancer.


Thank you! biggrin.gif

Barbarian: LocoSam, Winder, MPython, Hance, Thog
Do: Keely
Chongun: Madog, Taijin, Liadriel, Calmwind (though he might be a great C.Ryong pick)
Diviner: Sarina
Druid: Supply, Xenic
Geomancer: Leodaris
Merchant: Ilios, Paladino, Everclear
Monk: Janken
Muse: Lokira, Lloexis, Genji
Ranger: Valdessi, Darken (Should be Citian)
Spy: Chongun, SpyvsSpy, Arkanis (you can use his new char)
Shaman: Wildhair (lol. I picked her just because you'd have to draw fat lol)


I just thought these people represent their paths the best and are the most noteable. I know I am going to get some flack for some of them but I think people like Ilios, Janken (I didn't even put Berig), and Sarina perfectly represented the ideology of their paths in the hayday and are by far the most noteable. For paths with multi-entrees I focused on the most famous or the people (like in Hance' case) that represent some idea or principle of the path in everything they do.

Easy NPC Warrior pick: KaNaK.

I've never been in any PC paths and, at the risk of not only sounding conceited, but more importantly, sounding solman-ish, I'm the most skilled Warrior to ever play the game.

No offense to Kanak, because I think you do have a point (same with DaKowe or whatever that dudes name is, DarkMaverick etc) but depending on how you'd classify Calmwind, I think he might be the defacto choice. I know he was a Chongun, but for most people during the "prime" of Nexus he was probably the most famous Nexus person of all and during much of this stage was a Chung Ryong.

I can't agree more. She was my guide when I had my Muse, and was by far the absolute best ever.

thanks everyone so far! I've also already chosen Lokira and Leodaris for Muse and Geomancer, so you don't have to bother voting there anymore. Still gonna take a few more and then I'll see which has the most. Mostly, I'm trying to get up to 5 votes on each winner

I can already sense YanDaMan's snide remarks smile.gif, perhaps I should make a Diviner tongue.gif

However, Killeh thought I represented the Barbarians so well that she drew me as soon as she saw your vote! It's your lucky day:


(I tried to avoid using any current elders, but I like Soleil too much to leave her off tongue.gif)

Barbarian: SilentNights with a Brew, LocoSam

I know he was a Chongun, but for most people during the "prime" of Nexus he was probably the most famous Nexus person of all and during much of this stage was a Chung Ryong.

I understand where you're coming from, but I have to say I disagree, and it's not due to the obvious reason of you not picking me (HOW COULD YOU NOT PICK ME!? mad.gif [/sarcasm]).

For one, I personally think Nexus' "prime" occured a little later than you believe; Calmwind being there for part of it. In my opinion, that era began when Calmwind was already well established as the strongest player in the game, and all that was really seen of him were small glimpses and all that was really heard about him were the trivia-type statements of fact regarding his rank on the Power list. I've played since right after beta, and maybe it was due to my being young at the time, but I enjoyed it more later on and viewed Nexus at its best when PK was at an all-time high, before players got so dispersed in stats, and before the invasion merger of the Indonesian player-base from Nexia. Nonetheless, when Nexus' golden era occured is subjective and a whole different topic unto itself.

Secondly, I'd like to point out, and I've already touched on this, that Calmwind was basically ONLY known, i.e. "the most famous Nexus person of all" for being the top-stats player. Granted, I'm not known for that much in comparison, but if just holding the title of "Nexus' Buffest Player" is the criteria we're considering for the best representation of their path, then why not tack on Shans, Roboter, Ellone, winroute, SuWaN, Chebaky, SinJackal, etc to the list. I guess you could fit it into the "roleplay" of Chung Ryong (AKA Fury/Assault/Barrage/Champion) that if you're the strongest you best represent it, but that's a long stretch to be honest.

P.S. DaKowe or DarkMaverick? They totally don't fit into the point I was making. I was highlighting the importance of finesse and talent in combat and the natural ability to kill, since that's effectively what a Chung Ryong represents; perfection in the execution of a warrior's job -- to execute. Both of the examples you gave in relation to my point did not excel in that arena, literally. Now, I realize that may not have been the original role-play ideology of the totem, but that is what Nexus's Chung Ryong's represented since day one and that is still the measure they stand against today. DaKowe and DM were, at most and I don't mean to rag on or offend them, mediocre warriors. Not only that, but DM is most notable as a Chongun and, though in recent years he was unable to do so, I believe he still represents and distinguishes with that path best. You know what they say, "You can take the kid out of the hood, but you can't take the hood out of the kid." I'll leave it to him to say whether or not I'm right about that though, I don't want to speak on his behalf.

this is not the [Content removed]ing day time emmys but lets agree to disagree.


Sidenote: DM was such a chungy ryungy that he even went so far as to make a website just for Chung Ryongs to be as cool as him.



Which reminds me, DDarkstorm could very well be my Diviner pick if not for Sarina being such an interesting character

Warrior Subpaths

Barbarian: jorde/Mountie (nothing was more frightening when someone called in jorde to sire)

Chung Ryong: Calmwind (sure he started out Chongun, but he was the ultimate embodiment of what Rage 6 meant)

Do: SoulHunter/Burnout (Burnout had amazing PK ability that made use of the path spells like no one else)

Chongun: Ssbulldoga/Mitchel (classic sire Chonguns)


Poet Subpaths

Druid: Never really knew any that well. Tyania maybe?

Hyun Moo: Healingbabe/HealPLZ/TwistedTCK (these were people that made an impact wherever they were)

Monk: Janken/Devion

Muse: Bronwyn (the ultimate Muse)


Mage Subpaths

Diviner: Gull (the only Diviner I even acknowledge of being worth my time and called friend)

Geomancer: MadamEdea (probably one of the most hated people at one point, gotta give it to her for standing her ground)

Jujak: Skys (Really lived up to the title Force)

Shaman: Looking at the previous lists, almost embarrassing. Wasse/LoO are the pinnacle Shamans. SilentJoe for currently active. On a side note, Shans/Melfy/Nitehawk will for simple being the most known at a point when Shamans were the strongest mages.


Rogue Subpaths

Baekho: Castleberry/ShinI/dj (Castle actually RP'd the path)

Merchant: Demolish

Ranger: Anguish/Cable

Spy: SpyvsSpy/Arkanis/Vladd/Chongun (just based on the history I had with some or fact of how legendary were the rest)

I forgot all about ShinI, Mountie, Jorde.

I still don't get why I'm the only one giving Madog any love. The [Content removed] had one of if not the most epic parts in Nexus history ever.

Shaman: JaydePhoenix


Rogue Subpaths

Baekho: ShinI

Not many good ones left, but I suppose I'll weigh in... For those I didn't weigh in on, those already chosen, I'd go with what Falaris said except I'd do RiaDora for Rangers instead of Valdessi and Janken for Monk instead of Devion. In fact, I'd go with all of Falaris' choices except those two, except that many of those people don't play anymore, so it might be hard to draw them.

Warrior Subpaths

Barbarian: Winder or Wimp

Chung Ryong: Sparkyd

Do: MythicTenchi or Charmie

Chongun: SilentS


Poet Subpaths

Hyun Moo: Tzara


Mage Subpaths

Jujak: Najun or xTHUNDERx

Shaman: JaydePhoenix, Izabella or Hooje


Rogue Subpaths

Baekho: XMorphX

Merchant: Beilek or Living
