ZEALOTRY Users: Critical Notice on Continued Use

Edit: Our new HTML5 client (Orchil) is now open for beta testing in The Eternal City. Feel free to try give it a whirl at http://test.skotos.net/orchil/

Edit: We have made great strides toward a new HTML5 client, which should offer a replacement to Zealotry. We're hoping to release that in the very near future, but in the meantime, using Pale Moon remains the best method for ensuring there is zero interruption to your game playing during the transition.

As of November 14, Mozilla will be auto-updating all copies of Mozilla Firefox to Mozilla 57, a new edition of their browser that will disable all legacy add-ons. This will probably include the majority of the plug-ins that you use on Mozilla, including the Skotos Zealotry plug-in.

This is a big problem for us because Zealotry is the most stable of our clients at this time, and the one that we believe is in the widest use. There's unfortunately no easy way to update it, because we'd have to rewrite it from practically scratch, using their new programming system.

There are tricks that you could use to to prevent Mozilla updates, but we don't particularly suggest them, as you want to have a clean, secure browser. Fortunately, there are two alternative browsers that will support Zealotry. Each of them branched off of an earlier version of Mozilla Firefox, and each of them continues to be updated for important security issues.

Pale Moon Browser

The Pale Moon browser is our suggested replacement. It is a totally separate browser that branched off of Firefox some years ago. It will continue to support the classic plug-ins.

To install it:
  • Install Pale Moon (Windows & UNIX only)
  • Install the Zealotry XPI on Pale Moon
  • Restart the Pale Moon Browser
  • Play on Pale Moon

The official version of Pale Moon only supports Windows and UNIX, but you can also get a slightly less official version of Pale Moon for the Mac. We've tested it out and it looks like it's clean and works correctly, but use your own level of caution in working with the Mac variant.

Mozilla Firefox ESR

An alternative for all users, but especially for Mac users, is Mozilla's extended-release version of Firefox that branched at Firefox 52. It's expected to remain supported until at least June 28, 2016, by which time Mozilla is planning to jump their ESR to a post-plugin phase. This is therefore a short-term solution, but one that should work for a while longer.

To install it:
The Big Picture

Our larger-scale goal is to introduce a new client that will be usable on any browser and make our games generally more accessible. We've had a HTML5 client in process since last year, but are currently hitting roadblocks that make a deployment before November 14 problematic. We've also just started a second project, which would be more specifically focused as a Zealotry replacement, without worries about new bells or new whistles. Both of these possibilities are being done out-of-house, by Skotos players, but they're receiving our highest level of attention for whatever support they need, as this is all our top priority.

So, consider this a short-term fix, but in the meantime if you use Zealotry, please download one of the alternative browsers and test them out ASAP.

  • Update to Baseline Token Prices

    Below is an outline of the baseline token prices. These are simply a guide and costs may be subject to change. This is by no means an exhaustive list of the prices. You are encouraged to use these prices as a guideline and assist to talk with staff regarding any ideas or questions you might have.

    Please note, all prices are given under the assumption that materials and the skills of an appropriate crafter are provided where applicable in order to encourage the inclusion of fellow players and inspire role-play. Prices subject to change accordingly.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      SINGLE USE ITEMS

      Single use items, such as single use dye pots, are now restricted to the House responsible for those imports.

      Rinaldi - Single Use Dye Pots

      The Rinaldi can spend 50 trade tokens to have an item, bolt or roll dyed another color. IE) You can send in a bolt or roll with an assist (please also include the information in or on the package) and have the color adjective changed. You can send a bolt of silk with the request "I would like this dyed frosted silver plz!" and we will deduct the tokens accordingly. You must have authorization from the leader of the House to spend tokens.

      Bisclavret - Single Use Lacquer Pots

      The BIsclavret can send in an item or article of wood to have the color adjective changed for 50 trade tokens. IE) "I would like this wood lacquered in smokey brown! Thx!" Same as above, you need authorization to spend tokens from your House.

      Avoirdupois - One Time Fabric Alterations

      The Avoirdupois can pay 50 trade tokens to have fabrics patterned or textured. You cannot alter the type of fabric but you can add descriptors to the fabric. IE) Striped, floral-patterned, quilted, ruched, speckled, ombre, et cetera.

      Doloreaux - Single Use Metal Staining

      The Doloreaux can pay 50 trade tokens to have an item or rod altered to have a stain worked into the metal (no steel items allowed). IE) Blued, smoked, blackened, bronzed, burnished, polished, et cetera.

      Hope this helps!!
