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 ("Dusk") or the Lords of Dawn ("Dawn") for a certain period of time. Once they join the Cabals, it is impossible for them to withdraw until a new Seven Signs starts after two weeks They must choose the Seal they want to possess when they join. Players who have completed the second class transfer may join a cabal of the Seven Signs:
Lords of Dawn
Members of clans who own a castle and their alliances may join the Lords of Dawn. Also, players who are not members of the castle-holding clans or alliances but willing to pay 50,000 adena are able to choose Dawn through the Priests of Dawn in each village during the competition period. The Lord of each castle also has the privilege to allow an additional 300 characters to join. During the competition period, the Lords of the castles may purchase 300 of the Approval Certificates through the Chamberlain and transfer these Certificates to other characters.
Players who are not members of castle-owning clans need to get an Approval Certificate from the Lords to join Dawn, or pay 50,000 adena. The Approval Certificates will never expire and are valid for any event period of the Seven Signs. However, Approval Certificates will disappear after use.
Revolutionary Army of Dusk
Only players who are not members of the castle clans and guilds may join Dusk. During the registration period, they may join through the Priests of Dusk in each village.
Players who have completed the first class transfer but not the second may freely join either the Lords of Dawn or the Revolutionary Army of Dusk. Players who have not completed the first class transfer may not participate in the Seven Signs.
Players who join the Cabals participate in the competition period from the first Monday (6:00 PM) until the Monday (6:00 PM) of the following week and compete to possess the Seals. Each Cabal may hunt the Lilim, Nephilim, Lilith, and Gigant within the Catacomb and Necropolis to acquire Seal Stones.

Restart of Competition
Each Cabal may hunt the monsters within the Catacomb and Necropolis to acquire Seal Stones. The items acquired in this way are entrusted to the Priest of each side, and then, based on the number of items, the scores contributed to Seven Signs 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 the players. If the seal stones are not entrusted to the Priest during the competition period, they do not disappear and can be used during the next competition period.
End of the Competition Period
Determining Victory and Defeat
The total of Seal Stones acquired by each Cabal and entrusted to the Priest and the scores for the victory in each grade of the Festival of Darkness is added at the end of the competition period. The side with the higher total score wins.
For the winner, the total score of the Cabal acquired during the competition period will disappear after winning, but for the loser, the score will be accumulated and remain until the party wins later.
Grade (level requirement)
The Priest in the village exchanges the Seal Stones, entrusted as the contribution during the competition period, into Ancient Adena, and gives it to the winner.
If the winning Cabal did not entrust any Seal Stones during the competition period, they can bring them to exchange for Ancient Adena immediately. This way, the winner can receive compensation with Ancient Adena; however, the loser cannot receive compensation until they win in the competition. Seal Stones entrusted at the time of defeat may be compensated all together if they win in the next competition. If Ancient Adena was not transferred during the Seal Effective period, the transfer cannot be performed until the Cabal wins in the next competition. If they win, they can exchange all of their accumulated Seal Stones for Ancient Adena.
The winner can purchase a variety of items that cannot be purchased in the general stores by paying with Ancient Adena to the Priest of Dusk or Dawn.
Change in the Ownership of the Seal
The ownership of the Seal is changed based on the resulting victory or defeat and percentage of choice for the Seal.
If a Seal was already closed or owned by the opponent and the new winner wants to assume ownership of the Seal, 35% or more of the members of the Cabal must have chosen the Seal. If they chose less than 35%, they cannot own the Seal.
If the Seal was owned by the winner in the previous Seven Signs, they can retain that seal if 10% or more members have chosen it. If they want to possess a new Seal, at least 35% of the members of the Cabal must have chosen the new Seal.
Changes in the Sky
If Dawn wins, a solar eclipse occurs and the sky turns to a violet color, and if Dusk wins, an eye is created in the moon and the sky turns to a green color.
Entrance to Catacombs and Necropolis
