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.


- Shutdown Grendel (late Sunday 6/23)

- Startup Grendel (early Monday 6/24)

- Shutdown TEC (late Monday 6/24)

- Startup TEC (early Tuesday 6/25)

- Check TEC Client (9pm Tuesday 6/25)

- Shutdown TEC-Test (late Thursday 6/27)

- Lovecraft, Lazarus (Monday 8pm-10pm 7/2)


- UserDB (Monday 10pm-midnight 6/24)

- Web (Sunday 9pm-11pm 6/30)

  • Playing this game again!

    After a long break because i just wasnt seeing much activity ive decided to start playing again for a bit. I only have internet for a couple more weeks thats why only a bit. When i get better situated id like to play on the regular if others are willing too. In the meantime im actually content being the only monster in the world and hunting the uglies that have overtaken the monster world. I figure a couple weeks of leveling ill be better able to define my character, Kalista the vampire. She is magical/shaman.... i think i was making a support character in hopes of finding others to hunt with... currently i have heal and disease breath for power level but i want to get more support abilities im thinking haste next but fly would be neat for exploring. Haste is better tho for power level and support. Anyone else drop in to play the game anymore?

    Glad to see another previous player returning!

    Yes, quite a few monsters roam Uthgol these days, mostly in the mid afternoon and early evening.

      I just started to play again. I had stopped partly due to lack of players, but mostly because my computer started to smoking so I figured I probably shouldn't use it any more. I took quite a while to decide what to get for a replacement, but I finally got one so I intend to start playing more. I was surprised to see a few other people on when I logged in, this is great to see!
      Japes point towards Studgrob. A single point of light flashes from the middle of Studgrob's body, then starts growing larger until a great dome of bluish-white energy consumes him and his surroundings! 999999 points of damage! Studgrob roars a final time before dying

      Japes says, "Ninja minotaurs in love."
      Japes flails.

      Toasty: o.o
      Toasty: OMG, IT'S A SYNCHAR.
