Toulan has a rich but volatile history that ended in an apocalypse. Through the ages, attempts were made by Sultan Qumran's descendant, Sultan Sinmar, to balance the power of Nawa. The Oracle had given Sinmar the Book of Laws, which he bound himself to in order to achieve his goals. It was a daunting task to unify the nation with just an Insian Army, and knew that the battles would be many. He needed to connect with the three Mages, each imprisoned in their own respective towers because he knew that with the powers of the Narians at his side, he would be able to bring the people of the land under one rule.
However, the Mages are the origin of the insurrection that led to the Apocalyptic War. They served both Qumran and Sinmar, but only for their own purpose of being able to control the power of Nawa. After the war, and the beginning of reconstruction of the planet, the Mages were locked in towers. According to history, they can never be destroyed, but it is felt that there is still an ever-present danger that Narians might once again find a way to manipulate Nawa to Toulan's detriment.
So how did HM Queen Nara come to be in possession of the Book of Laws? It may not be widely known, but Queen Nara is one of two daughters of Sultan Sinmar, an Insian. When he married a Narian, the Al-Nahar Princess Dia, she gave birth to Queen Nara who was born a Safian. It was the mix between an Insian and Narian that produced this race. Only a dozen of them existed and were known as perfect beings living on Toulan's moon where the Lotus Temple existed, and where the Insians first started their journey. When the insurrection occurred, Queen Nara's family died, but not before helping her to escape to Toulan where she became the last of the Safians. They were also successful in sealing the Narians off from Toulan behind a dimensional veil (rift) that no longer exists.
Taken from The Reluctant Queen during her meeting at the Narian Temple on Toulan, this will give more substance to what is historically known:
“It started when they first arrived at the Lotus Temple, vast machinery built with the technology of this dimension yet driven by their own intelligence. Under the guise of deep space exploration, a corporation breached the barrier and sent forth mechanical beasts to exploit the natural resources and feed their mortal greed.”
“We held on to the end, and what few of us remained returned through the tear to face the source. The last of my family died that day but not before sealing the rift and helping me to escape. I have been looking for you ever since. We must unite once more and face this evil together.”
Queen Nara had initially been summoned by the Oracle to partake in the ritual of passing on the Book of Laws as the rightful heir to rule Planet Toulan. So far, things have been going well, other than a monthly disruption of Toulan's creatures with the goal of creating chaos and another Toulan downfall. When she discovered the Stranger at her open meeting at the Narian Temple, she knew there would be challenges, and considered that the Stranger may be using Dark Nawa.
However, Queen Nara was once again summoned by the Oracle to warn her that there was imminent danger. The Oracle discovered that there was a clandestine meeting between the Stranger, now known to definitely be using Dark Nawa, and Monria's Leader of the Cult of Shut'thend, Decca. This was not good news, and Queen Nara knew that she would once again have to ready the inhabitants of Toulan to rise up and fight even more vigorously to not only keep the chaos quelled, but also make an attempt at finding out what this disturbing news is about.
The question is ... what does this not only mean for Toulan, but also for Monria?

Location | Begins at Guardian Village with HM Queen Nara and will expand across various locations on Toulan over the weekend
Yamato Warp Schedule will run on Thursday, May 27th and Monday, May 31st due to the weekend-long Toulan event.
- The Toulan community and allies must unite once again to defeat shared loot mobs and protect the planet
- As a reminder, the 22 modified mob maturities will only ever appear during events
- There are specific Lost Pages for the Book of Life that can only ever be looted during an event
- As learned with the launch of this monthly event in Dec 2020, the mob attacks will commence at Guardian Village with HM Queen Nara
- --- she is calling on all Insians and allies to defend the village
- We also learned that following the initial attack, there is a full scale invasion planned across various locations on Toulan
- In light of Queen Nara's meeting with the Oracle, this encounter will be more important than ever
We warned you before to come fully prepared because the behavior of these unique 22 modified creatures is unpredictable. Many learned with the launch of this monthly event in Dec 2020, that anyone stepping into the large aggro range of these mobs will trigger a full-on charge of all of the mobs at once, and it's not just one group of them. There are waves that include boss mobs, and then all 7 of the biggest boss mobs in a row, one more deadly than the one before. When these 7 boss mobs are killed, the full scale invasion across various locations on Toulan begins for the remainder of the weekend.
However, there is an added segment to the end of the initial waves and bosses for about an hour or so ... it will keep you busy.
For full and complete details about this monthly event, there is an article in the Dec 2020 Virtualsense Quarterly magazine that breaks everything down.
(these guys, and the other wave levels all charge at once when the first player breaches their aggro range, which is quite large)
AS ALWAYS -- " EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED "
