Downtime Report: Wednesday Night

We had an abrupt and unannounced downtime for all games and services starting sometime after 9pm PT on Wednesday evening. This was due to a massive power outage at our cloud computing facility of the sort that redundant systems are supposed to ensure never happen. After about an hour they were able to diagnose that the power was out. It took a few more hours for them to start restoring service.

At this moment, everything is back up except for Ironclaw and TEC. At the rate they're restoring things, I hope those will be back up in the next 15-30 minutes, but it's entirely in their hands.

As is typically the case with a sudden reboot, TEC and GR have to be rolled back. This is already done with GR. The TEC rollback should be just a few hours due to the more recent backups recently instituted, but I need to get the machine back before I can verify that.

Update: Ironclaw and TEC are now back too. The TEC rollback was 2.5 hours, from 9.30pm PT (when everything crashed) to 7.00 pm PT.

    Typically an event is something that has it's beginning, middle and end all in the course of a few hours (like in an evening of play). An even can also be something that is done just for fun, such as a dance, a wedding, a party, etc.

    Please feel free to add to this list of events that have been run in the past or have been suggested by players.

    If you are interested in running a particular event, simply contact staff via @assist to get the items needed for that event.

      There are no additional charges for events anyone may wish held unless it requires special, one-time props. Even in those cases, we can discuss options. We want to encourage all players to hold events, even if the are as small as a study group in an empty classroom.
