Downtimes: June 24 - July 2nd

We've got another batch of shutdowns coming in late June and early July, so that the machines can be repaired for the newest bug, the ZombieLoad CPU bug.

In general, the Genesis games (Grendel, TEC, TEC-Test) all have reboots scheduled for the absolute middle of the night, so I'll be taking each down the previous evening at midnight and bringing them back up the next morning at 9am.

The SkotOS games have always been more robust about reboots, so we'll let them reboot on their own, though there's some chance for an ~2 hour data loss. In any case, I'll be checking them after the 2-hour window when I can, though Marrach has a middle-of-the-night reboot, so that'll be the next morning.

The UserDB and Web reboots will cause some downtime for the entire site, but again they will hopefully come up cleanly.


- Shutdown Grendel (late Sunday 6/23)

- Startup Grendel (early Monday 6/24)

- Shutdown TEC (late Monday 6/24)

- Startup TEC (early Tuesday 6/25)

- Check TEC Client (9pm Tuesday 6/25)

- Shutdown TEC-Test (late Thursday 6/27)

- Startup TEC-Test (Friday 6/28)


- Marrach (Monday early morning 6/24)

- Ironclaw (Monday 10pm-midnight 6/24)

- Lovecraft, Lazarus (Monday 8pm-10pm 7/2)


- UserDB (Monday 10pm-midnight 6/24)

- Web (Sunday 9pm-11pm 6/30)

    I would be interested in helping in any way i can. I am especially interested in the building or helping in the building of parts of skotos. I take great pleasure in creating things that i know others will enjoy.

      I am very interested in doing building and/or coding. I dont have much to do as Im taking time off of school, but my brain is craving the coding activity.. email me, I'll do whatever. ( I am familiar with the merry coding system, and c++, and I have english courses under my belt as well.

        Evening Sunshine,

        I'm not sure if you still need help. But I am willing to do what I can if you still want help. It sounds fun, and very interesting. I'm an author in my off time, so descriptions are my specialty on characters, and animals to be specific.

        Also I'm not half bad at story plotting. If you still need help let me know, I'm always curious and happy to help. You may PM me, but if needed I can give my email address through a PMly.

        I don't have experience in the coding and all the computer language stuff. But am willing to try doing what I can to help.

          Yo ho ho and a bottle of... Rem?


          By the way folks, if there are still any willing minions out there wishing to help we won't and shall not turn you away.

          Brief to-do:

          We are simply writing up descriptions of anything and everything needed to launch the game.
          Any coders would be helpful. It's not fair if we have to nag coders from other games.

          Just give me a quick PM and I'll get right back to you.

We're forever marching, forever fighting. For one night, let the world stay grey. I promise one day the sun shall rise again... just for you.

                    Good to hear there is still interest out there.

                    We're not currently advertising VP positions, going to wait until the majority of the projects for Alpha release are done up well and good. However, we'll keep in mind that there are certain people considering opting for a VP position, but naturally, there will be an application form in which to fill out. Basically so we can check to see if people will play their characters correctly and without any abuse, though I'm sure most of you will take your privilege seriously.

                    On further note, I am pleased to see that progress is being made and the game should be open to you when we are satisfied with it, for that moment in time.

                    Still looking for more staff, I am sure that the game can be open sooner if there plenty of people to support the running of the game. Currently our staff is more British orientated, alongside some Americans, therefore, I'd like to see some people volunteer to cover the other time zones so that there is an even spread of staff available to the different target audiences.

                    I hope to be hearing from you soon.

                      I might be able to do some light coding work for you guys, but I don't know any of the languages you guys use (yet). I also don't have too much time per week to help out, but I could put in a couple of hours (around 4-5 probably).

                        For those that have presently applied, I should have gotten in touch with you.

                        If not, then please PM me, I don't bite.

                        We presently have a healthy group of active staff, still, new staff are always welcome, being a game in the works, it has a lot to be done to it. I'd have absolutely no problem in appointing something to do, of course, only if you're willing and happy with the job.

                          Hey there!

                          Some of you have expressed interest on joining the team, but you've yet to reply to my email. I post here just in case you're frequently on the forums but not checking your email so much. You know who you are, just give me a quick PM so that I can check your status.

                              I reallly want to be a builder, Jen. I don't know much about coding but I've created small items for Lovecraft Country, so I know how to do the menial labor.

                              I'd also love to be a VP, Storyplotter, whatever....

                              My wandering days are over.

                                Hey there,

                                I'm also interested if anything is available, anything except coding (since I can never wrap my head around it).

                                I 'build' small items regularly in Lovecraft Country, and I currently hold a VP position as well?
