Reboots: Marrach, Lazarus, Lovecraft, Auth Server on Thursday, Friday [Complete]

On Thursday morning at 11am PT, I will be taking down the following games to upgrade them:
  • Castle Marrach
  • Lazarus Sleeping
  • Lovecraft Country
Then, on Friday morning at 11am PT I will be taking down our authentication machine:
  • User Database
Apologies for the short notice, but it's in response to a security bulletin related to the virtual machine software that these games and servers are on. We've already upgraded the rest of our machines to a new virtual machine which has thus far been less prone to security problems, and we're taking the opportunity to update these final machines in advance of a forced reboot over the weekend.

Each upgrade timeframe is expected to be an hour or less. I expect to be able to do memory upgrades for these machines at the same time.

Edit: Thursday morning upgrades for Lazarus, Lovecraft, and Marrach are now complete. The machines have also been upgraded from 2G of memory to 4G.

Edit: Friday morning upgrade now done as well, complete with upgrade of user authentication machine.

All SkotOS Maps Updated; Please Report Bugs

In the last several days I've updated the way that all the game maps are stored for Ironclaw, Lazarus, Lovecraft, and Marrach, to make it possible for our admins and GMs to add new maps and map fragments to our games. Everything is working from my browsing, but I've heard a few reports of missing maps in Marrach (which may or may not have predated the update).

If any maps seem to have gone missing in those four SkotOS games, please let me know. If you see a broken map or map fragment where the image isn't showing up:

1. Open the image in a new tab (usually by right-clicking and choosing this option from a menu)
2. Copy the URL of the image from the URL bar
3. Email that URL to me at shannona@skotos.net

  • Let's Get Things Rolling

    Hello monsters!

    We’ve been hard at work recently finalizing some event plans. While free accounts are still being worked on, there are quite a few things we want to do to keep things heated in Uthgol. Over at least the next month, we will be releasing events regularly. The very first of these events can be seen here. With exception to personal interruptions, events should continue at a higher pace until free accounts are finalized.


    Furthering our goal of kindling roleplay until the release of free accounts, we will also be accepting event proposals without StoryPoint costs, with a few exceptions:
    • All events will be chosen by Grendel’s Revenge staff depending on the event’s ability to create a genuine roleplay-healthy environment. If several events are submitted at once that we think will do well, we will open a (spoiler-free) forum vote.
    • These events must be open to anyone to join. You may not exclude any single player, clan, or grumble.
    • These events may not focus on a single individual. Events that exclude other players will not even be considered.
    • These events can not benefit an individual or group over another, with few exceptions. Any ‘benefit’ must be obtainable by anyone participating in the event.
    • Event submitters will act only as a guide in creation of the event. Grendel’s Revenge staff have final say over event details.

    Any questions concerning the limits of event requesting can be submitted to this thread, or anonymously via PM. You may submit your actual event request via email to PenceGR@gmail.com with the title “Grendel’s Revenge Event”. Please include your character name and as much detail for the event as possible.

    Please use this rare chance to create as many staff-supported events as possible during the time leading up to the free account release. Get together with your clan/grumble, or with others, and start thinking!

      Offering event proposals without storypoint costs ... well ... cant blame anyone but yourself then .


      Dear monsters. Would you like to participate in an event of your own making? If so, I would appreciate it if you could tell me your schedules somewhere around 21-28th of July. This is the end of the Black Bazaar event and I figured ... why not throw a wrench into it.

      So, I need a roll call, who amongst you is going to be available 21-28th of July and what time. Emphasis on 28th, just to allow other players experience the SG event, before we as players totally corrupt it into something of our own.

      All the details will be decided on and found out In Game. If you guys want to participate in an event that is, hopefully in good part made by your own monsters actions ... this is a good week to play GR.
      I must not lag. Lag is the game-killer. Lag is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my lag. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the lag has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

          Alright. Well, the turn about wasnt so great, it could be better.

          So I invite everyone to show up tomorrow. Sunday, july 29th. 6-7 pm. You are encouraged to log in today, so you could participate in the plotting of the raid. Tomorrow we will do the actual raid. If we got enough people coming along, we'll succeed. If we will be low on muscle, we'll get our butts wiped out. Either way, it'll be fun!
