Fergus McGreedy's Little Headache

Fergus McGreedy has lived an interesting life. His eye for gold and wealth has taken him both near and far. His treasure chests are filled with riches from Elysea and Asmodae… even the Abyss itself. Over the years, Fergus has become a well-known character in Atreia; after all, how could anyone possibly miss a leprechaun dressed in green suit and top hat, lounging around a chest larger than himself?

Unfortunately, Fergus' fame has also resulted in him attracting attention from less pleasant members of Atreian society. Shugo bankers have long sought to get their hands on his riches, but were only recently able to uncover a relevant loophole in the Elyos and Asmodian tax systems. Following this recent revelation, a horde of Shugo tax collectors have started chasing after Fergus, looking to take the wee man's hard-earned Kinah.

Eye on Community 3.12.2010

Happy Friday, Daevas!

Daylight saving time begins in the United States this Saturday. Safety officials use that biannual event as a reminder: Change your clocks, and change your smoke alarm batteries. This important reminder is meant to keep you safe. Well, we want to keep your character safe as well, so we're officially putting an MMO spin on this adage.

That's right! At NCSOFT, we want you to change you clock, change your batteries, and change the password for your Aion account. By doing so, you will make giant steps toward keeping you and your virtual personae safe For more tips on how to stay safe in Atreia, visit our PlaySmart Page.
