Co-Lo Stability Problems

Unfortunately, our co-lo had some stability problems Friday morning.

First up, they lost all of their connectivity to the facility that holds all of our games. This took them about 40 minutes to diagnose and a bit longer to restore.

Much more astonishingly, they rebooted all of their machines (which means all of our machines) while they were fixing the problem, with no notice. This probably had minimal repercussions on the SkotOS games (Marrach, Ironclaw, Lazarus, and Lovecraft). There may have been a rollback of an hour or two.

TEC and Grendel's Revenge are more troublesome. TEC will suffer a rollback of 10 hours, to midnight (PT) last night, since the unannounced reboot happened one hour before the next backups. GR suffered a more complete failure. We're being forced to restore the entire machine from its backups, then we'll need to restore the game from the backups stored within that backup. The lineup of dates look promising (which is how we laid them out, 'lo these many years ago), so the hope is that we'll only suffer a 7 hour rollback, to the 3am (PT) game backup, but it's a bit dicey at the moment.

Apologies for the inconvenience; we're now making sure everything is stable, and we're looking into whether our most recent upgrades to TEC will support increasing the backups to every 6 hours.

Edit: The GR problem is proving even more intractable than hoped. As best I can tell, our colo is still having some issues because I can't boot the first restore I made of GR and I can't build a new node either. I expect this will just clear when they get their act together, but in the meantime I'm not able to get GR back online until they fix these problems.

  • Temporary SP Cost Reduction

    In light of player feedback, and while GR is operating at less than maximum community size, we will be temporarily reducing the cost of all StoryPoint options by 50%.

    This is completely subject to change upon future discussion of the SP discount or after we believe the discount has continued for long enough.

    As previously stated, we have introduced some new/altered SP options. These options are already reduced from previous numbers, and certain requests may not be subject to the 50% SP reduction.

    We intend to continue to add SP options and alter prices in the future. If you have any questions, please contact the GR staff in-game via the @assist command.

    Please note that StoryPoint options that do not normally require GM support (Starting a Wandering Monster at Tier 2 or Tier 3, Additional Lair Level, and Racial names all come to mind) will still charge the original price.

    Please file an @request to receive any of these services at the discounted rate, with GM support.
