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.

  • Clarification: The difference between Shadow Marked and Wraith Markings

    It's come to our attention lately that some players are confused about the difference between shadowmarking (Shadows) and being wraith marked (Hand of Five).

    Shadow marking is not visible on the body, save for the trademark shadowy grey eyes that can show. Wraith marking is more unique, and shows as an actual physical marking on the flesh somewhere.

    If your character has shadow marking, and dies, they do not lose it.

    If your character has a mark of the wraith by the Hand of Five, and they die, they lose it.

    These two markings are completely separate and I believe there has been some confusion as to what is tied to what. I hope this clarifies it a bit.
