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)

- Startup TEC-Test (Friday 6/28)


- Marrach (Monday early morning 6/24)

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

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


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

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

  • Chosen of the Dawn

    On the western wall of Grendel's Shrine, to the left of some stone stairs covered by green moss, a message has been etched into the wall in faintly glowing golden letters.

    Although the darkness comes from time to time as Uthgol turns away from the Sun Goddess's healing rays, that darkness will always pass with the rising of the sun. As winter approaches with its long, chill nights, the Dawn is needed more than ever, for when it comes it is the bringer of light and warmth to all the creatures of Uthgol: Flora, fauna, and Grendelspawn alike.

    Therefore we, the Chosen of the Dawn, have come together in recognition of that warmth, gathering in our circles for safety and companionship. All Chimera are welcome in our ranks, and we bear the other castes no malice. Yet should any threaten us and earn our wrath, we shall in the fullness of time bring the Sun Goddess's justice.

    By Her Light,
    Hidaka the Phoenix
    Chosen of the Dawn

    Ooh! A new clan! I will bring welcome gifts in celebration!

        I have not found YOUR lair. But I did find another one that seems new, "The Scoundrels' Lair". I dumped a bunch of gifts down their lair entrance. Hope that I didn't block it up with all that I tossed down there. To the little undead magician that was hunting around there, I'm sorry if my uglies roasted you alive. I tried to kill them before they got out of control.

          After a long time of darkness, the Dawn has come again. All Chimera are welcome to join us. We do not yet have a lair, but all things come in time.

                If you wish an easy road, no need to seek us out.

                If you wish the struggle of the frontier, to enter wild lands and carve out a kingdom of wildness, join us, the Chosen of the Dawn, as we strive for greatness.

                  A Suggestion

                  (A Vellum scroll, green ink)

                  You would be better ignoring those two, Hidaka, Chosen of the Dawn.

                  I am in no way Chimera, but I will assist thee any way I can, as Shaman, as Potion Maker, as one of the few who remains awake.

                  By Your Light,

                    The Chosen of the Dawn is now seeking a diplomat. Chimera are preferred, but an exception might be made for a trustworthy creature of good reputation.

                      Hidaka, I have convened with my master. I await your presence at the Shrine.
