ZEALOTRY Users: Critical Notice on Continued Use

Edit: Our new HTML5 client (Orchil) is now open for beta testing in The Eternal City and Grendel's Revenge. 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.

If You Have Errors

Some users are experiencing "Content Encoding Errors" when using Pale Moon and Zealotry. As best we can tell, this is due to an incompatibility between Windows 8.1, Pale Moon, and Plugins. If you have this problem (or any other), we suggest instead using Mozilla's extended-release version of Firefox, which branched at Firefox 52. It's expected to remain supported until at least June 28, 2018, by which time Mozilla is planning to jump their ESR to a post-plugin phase. This is therefore a short-term solution, but we expect to have full release of our New HTML5 client well before that.

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.

  • Infirmiry Hours and Rates

    *scrawled in a tiny and delicate hand*

    I am Eyriel, an apprentice healer of all sorts by trade. I will now be hosting Infirmiry hours on a regular basis. At least I will attempt too. I will be hosting them at the infirmiry in Docktown.

    For all injuries received as the result of muggers, there will be no charge. *scrawled in the margins you see a note CHECK ADDENDUMS*

    For injuries resulting from being stupid bloody morons the charge will be 2 pieces of silver for the bandage, 3 pieces of silver for thread, and 4 pieces of silver for aloe gel, if I possess any at the time. Paid in half before treatment, paid in half after treatment.

    For injuries requiring a house call as a result of a serious emergency, prices will be negotiated and paid -after- the crisis is over, and treatment provided.

    All members of the Koi are entitled to haggle on the pricing.

    All prices are subject to dismissal at my discretion, and to future changes which will be reflected on this board. Mostly because I will add more stuff. Probably. Maybe. We will find out as I get further along in my studies.


    May your Skies be Good, and your Winds blow ever at your Back.

    Addendum: New Items and Prices thereof

    I am now offering the sale of healer masks, arm slings and eye-patches in case they are needed but I am not around.

    Eye-patches that are meant for decoration, as they are being used to cover an already healed injury, or just as a fashion accessory will cost 5 pieces of silver plus the cost of the fabric. Unless the fabric is provided by the one seeking purchase. Then it is just 5 pieces of silver.

    For patches meant for medical purposes, such as injuries, it is 2 pieces of silver plus cost of fabric.
    Note: Medical eye-patches that are used should always be burned as they are a health hazard.
    Further Note: For eye injuries that take longer then 2 or 3 days to heal the old patch should be burned and a new patch applied.
    Extra Further Note: For bulk buys of medical patches, I will knock of 5 pieces of silver for every 10th patch bought.

    On to slings.

    I will sell two kind of slings. Disposable and Renewable.

    Disposable slings are slings you can use and then dispose of without a second thought. They will cost 2 pieces of silver plus cost of fabric.

    Renewable slings are slings you can use, then send back to me, who will wash and sanitize them, and then return them to you. They will cost 4 pieces of silver plus cost of fabric and 1 piece of silver for every 5 washes. I WILL keep tally.
    Note: NEVER EVER try to clean and sanitize a sling without a proper healer. If you have a healer willing to clean and sanitize the slings for your, feel free.

    For those who want and/or need a healer mask but can not make one yourselves, I will also sell those too. 2 pieces of silver per mask plus cost of fabric.

    Consolidary Note: For all medical crafted articles noted here, the sling, eyepatch, and healer mask, I will offer discount in bulk. 5 pieces of silver for every 10th one bought. Emphasis on Bulk. In other words, they have to be bought at one time. In ONE purchase.

    May your Stars be Bright, and your Path ever Winding.

      ADDENDUM: Mugger Injuries and prices.

      An incident occurred recently requiring this update.

      ALL USES OF ALOE GEL will cost 4 silver. Whether the injury is mugger caused or not.

      Any serious injuries resulting from muggings aside from bruising, such as broken bones, or dislocated joins will come with a cost of 2 pieces of silver per treated area.

      All injuries that are just simply bruises requiring nothing more then bandages, will be treated for free.

      Moral of this update, if you wish to fight muggers, do not be a stupid bloody moron and fight a whole bunch at the same time.
