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.

GENESIS:

- 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)


SKOTOS:

- Marrach (Monday early morning 6/24)

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

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


MAIN SITE:

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

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

    How did I get this warrant?

    Only two steals I did today, wearing a faceplate, Yet afterwards, I walk to the baths and Constables start attacking me, Concealment charge. I've tried to proclaim and ring the bell. Sent in an @report. No response in the 7 hours i was logged in afterwards.... Can someone tell me how I got this warrant, What I did wrong? Anything? Stuff like this makes playing a pp not fun, and no response from staff doesn't make players want to stick around.... Frustrated.
    You arrive at a hallway. You are facing north. You see a hallway to the north and to the south.
    Your face is covered.
    You spot a servant within the crowd.
    You look upon a stocky a man with undistinguished features. He has smooth olive skin and dark brown eyes. This servant seems focused on the completion of some task. He is wearing a small leather belt pouch, a plain pale brown tunic, some some woolen breeches, and some brown leather sandals. He is carrying a wicker basket in his left hand and nothing in his right hand.
    You move toward a servant. You stop next to him.
    [Success: 1, Roll: 75] With easy confidence, you snatch a wicker basket from a servant's hands.
    A servant yells, "Guards! A thief!" A servant yells, "A thief!" You are no longer busy.
    You retreat. [Success: 17, Roll: 73]
    You are no longer busy.
    A servant picks an Iridine soldier out from the crowd and has a word with him.

    Your face is covered.




    You buckle the guard of a leather helmet with a buckled face covering closed.
    You walk to some bench bleachers, to the west.
    You arrive at some bench bleachers. You are facing west. You see a marble stairway to the north; and some bench bleachers to the east and to the west.

    The constables were looking for a man in your clothes and a buckled faceplate. They asked around, hit up the usual gossips and stool pigeons they always do. The word was out. Eventually, someone sees a similar looking fellow unbuckle a faceplate. Turning him in will earn them some leniency on their next arrest, or so they hope. They tell the local constable that you're the guy they're looking for. This guy has been wrong before, but usually isn't too far off. If you didn't do this, you probably did something. Besides, the little snitch might not be upstanding but he's a citizen, that's more than enough to hold in court, prove it's not you scum.
    So the constable looking to pad his quota for the month sees you walk in. He has the charge. Plus, it's petty theft so no one is going to fight that. It's an easy bonus check on his next raise request. You get some free bread, and you should be happy for that. He makes a few more sterce next year. No harm done, right? You're not the first thief to scream their innocence. They've heard it all before and laugh as the cell door slams shut.

    Satisfied?

    I guess NPCs cheat in both combat and non-combat?

    You got your warrant right there.
