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.

  • 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.
