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.

GENESIS:

- 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)


SKOTOS:

- Marrach (Monday early morning 6/24)

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

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


MAIN SITE:

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

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

  • Mafia-style Game

    Hello all,

    I've for a long time been thinking about a game set in or around the 1920's where four families are competing for control over a city. There are many online turn-based games running these concepts, but I've yet to find any text RPG games offering that experience. Also, I think this would be a great opportunity to attract new players who may not be so keen on the fantasy RPG's skotos is currently offering.

    If there are any who have launched games through Skotos, I'd love to talk to you. I have zero experience starting up a game.

    A 1920s era crime game could potentially be interesting. That genre would be one of the games I'd love to see here -- superhero, pirate, steampunk, old west, would be others.

    You could set up the game in a 'fake' city, or use somewhere like Chicago, pre-Capone days. You have prohibition and plenty of conflicts built-in to that time period.

    Downside would be that it would require a pretty large gameworld to pull off correctly. That, and the fact that Skotos stopped accepting proposals for new games years ago.

      I think it would be a little difficult to rebuild a agent world and you have to collect lots of information about that world
