The Legend of Nian 年的傳說

It was New Years Eve... Wandering City was silent. Piercing City was still. Molten City was empty. Forbidden City was desolate. As the sun set, eyes peeked out from inside the houses, fearful. The quietest shuffle of feet seemed like a thunderstorm... Mothers whispered comforting words to their frightened children. No one dared move.

As the last glimmers of the evening sun disappeared, leaving the sky an inky black.... it began.

In the exact center of No-mans land, the haunted Ghost Valley, 4 fearsome beasts appeared. Chun 春. Xia 夏. Qiu 秋. Dong 冬. These were the children of the Original Nian. It was only by the God's power that She didn't still haunt this world. Yet now, her sons appeared, screaming, screaming, screaming. It has been said that this is where the original myth of a Dragon was conceived, but they are far from the real thing. Flaming black, ugly faces, and the tepid smell. Of course, the worse was the screams. Bloodchilling and loud, heard from miles away. They made the warriors shiver. The warriors. Each of them battle hard veterans, wondering what they were up against. All clans had dropped their hostilities and decided to work together. There were innocent lives at stake, so the Lords would not permit petty rivalries to endanger the lives of their loyal clansmen. How did it come to this? Each warrior tightened their grip on their weapon. The mood of the congregation shifted, from nervous... to downright fearful. How did it come to this...?

The Lords watched as their armies marched on. They each began a mystic circle. The Soldier who fell one of these fearsome beasts would be rewarded greatly. Yet, the Lords would pay with their lives. When one of the Demonic beasts was defeated, they would attempt to banish it. But they put far too much energy into this ritual. As the last monster, Dong 冬, was banished, they each collapsed. As they lay on the ground, the first rays of morning light shone through. And with that, the Great Lords breathed(grammar?) their last breaths. Every man has his day.

Quest: 4 Boss Invasion. Chun walks towards Piercing City, Xia walks towards Molten City, Qiu walks towards Forbidden City, and Dong walks towards Wandering City. They can go through portals. If one of them reaches a City, Game Over. The boss goes away. :P No shields during this event. Pvp is enabled, but discouraged. When someone "kills" a boss, their name would be displayed on announcements. "[Player] has defeated Chun 春." for example. After each Boss is killed, they respawn. This repeats until each boss is killed 4 times. So 16 winners. The winner would get Golden Dust, which would permanently increase Damage by 100. The description for this item would be: "A strange Golden Dust found near the final resting site of the Great Lords."

:)

Btw, the bosses would just be those big floaty things, just with a different name.

lulz

Of course you guys go straight to complaining about the prize. I wouldn't put it past you. Can you not see that this is a community, These forums are more than just some place you come to "Get good in game items for participating in events". Mayn actually host's events to help people come to understandings more often, Aka this event. The point of this event is not just to get 1 money purse. It's to help you become more knowledgeable about the Chinese new year, And honestly if you really don't care, Don't participate.

I will try my best to participate because i love the Chinese culture. How about you guys run past that "Line of greed" and just have a little fun once and awhile ?.

I found this on the internet is was not typed by me...According to legend, the nien, also the Chinese word for "year," was an enormous and ferocious beast who originally fed only on domesticated animals but turned one winter to eating people when there was no other prey. Unable to endure this daily terror, the people looked for a way to rid the beast from the village.

After observing the nien for some time, the people discovered that it had an unusual fear of three things: The color red, loud noises, and fire. Thus, when winter came again, each family in the village hung red peach wood slats on their doors, banged on loud instruments, and set bonfires in front of their homes. When the beast came again that night to forage on the villagers, he was terror-stricken by the sight of the red wood on the door, the blazing fires, and the cacophony ringing in the air. Without so much as a look, he fled to the mountains from whence he has never returned.

To prevent the nien from ever terrorizing the village again, the people kept vigil throughout the night. When morning came without mishap, they congratulated each other and celebrated. This story is said to be the origin of the custom of hanging red spring couplets, lighting firecrackers, and staying up to see in the new year.
the following is typed by me
The lion dance dates back to 1500 years ago. Its performed during certain occasions as a form of good luck and wealth cuz lions represents good omen in chinese culture. Its also performed on Chinese new years cuz of association with Chinese new years. The dance requires 2 people, One as the lions head and 1 as the lions hind legs. They would be decorated colorfully as shown
http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/3472/chineselion.gif (http://img534.imageshack.us/i/chineselion.gif/)
There are two versions of this dance, northern and southern. Northern is more acrobatic and is represented as furious and southern is represented as playful. The traditional lions are named after three brothers found in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms Face of Guan Gong, the red-faced and black-maned kind, Face of Liu Bei, the yellow-faced and white-maned kind, and Face of Zhang Fei, the black faced and black-maned creature with short eyebrows.
