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.

  • Further Attacks by the Hand of Five

    Fifth day of the Third Moon,
    Twentieth Year of Recent Awakenings

    In accordance with the will of Her Majesty and in upholding the duties charged to me as Senior Chronicler, I hereby submit the account of Further Attacks by the Hand of Five.

    Further attacks were experienced today, the fifth day of the third moon, as the Hand of Five intensified hostilities against the residents of Castle Marrach.

    Mistress Josie was taken in the Gate Courtyard after leaving the Practice Hall. She was being held by ser Melle and sera Vasilisa in the hope that contact between people would offer protection. An eye witness reported being frozen in place and hearing a laugh, then there was a flash and cold and then Mistress Josie was gone. Mistress Juliana was in the middle of the bridge, also being held. In this case sera Mallegra was clutching her legs when she vanished. It seems that contact with other people is no protection against being abducted.

    This brings the total of missing people to five from the Inner Bailey and the Outer Bailey. The missing are Lady Charmiam, Mistresses Josie and Juliana, and seras Alyndra and Kona. It is unknown if there is any connection between the women. It is also unknown if anyone has been taken from the Under Bailey.

    This chronicle will be subject to changes and corrections, as I humbly ask all readers please indicate to me through discretion any falsehoods I may have mistakenly communicated. It is by means of the conservation of the Past that we continue to serve Her Majesty and give substance to those that follow.

    In service to Her Majesty Queen Vivienne, The Office of the Chronicler, and the Denizenry of Her Majesty's Realm.
