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)

    What caused the Altenes to be exiled from their homeland?

    What are the major gods and goddesses of Tuchea?
    9.28%
    9
    Or something to that effect.

    We'll be answering one of the following four questions this week so go ahead and vote now (Just to note, a few of the questions have been reworded slightly to make them less broad)

    Q: What caused the Altenes to be exiled from their homeland?
    Q: Could you outline more of Windwardian history?
    Q: What major cities exist within Windward?
    Q: What are the major gods and goddesses of Tuchea?

    Please try to keep the question thread constructive. I realize that some people think it's funny to try and point out things they believe to be inaccuracies, but try to keep it on track. Remember this is Iridine not Rome, tomatoes grow in Iridine, so does tobacco, even if the Romans didn't have them. Lorica Segmenta's haven't been invented, and scale mail isn't popular enough to warrant production by anyone within easy access to Iridine (just to put a few of the supposed inaccuracies to rest).

    I have a suggestion concerning the questionthat ends up being answered. A request, actually.


    Would the GM who answers do so in the staff forum? Make the thread sticky, post the question and the answer. Then the following week do the same, in teh same thread? In this way, we can direct those newcomers or returned players to the one thread and point out the fleshed out areas one will not find in the help files.

    That OR...


    Make the answer a helpfile in the pertinent category and point us to it.

    Thank you.

    Yeah, uh, ok

    Yeah, so am I the only one who recognized "Rock the vote" as an Admin Mod command for Counter-Strike? Yeah, ok, no one probably even knows what I am talking about so lets move on.

    I think the altene have quite a bit background to keep them sustained, whereas some other nationalities are like "Whoah, what am I?". Winward needs to be worked on.

    Well, maybe not. This past year has been pretty busy for her, so I've been lenient and tried not to rush her about it.

    No, not at all.

    The ethnic roleplaying has tended to get stale at least in part because we've already rung most of the changes available. Get new material and probably people will want to try it out. People who slip altene words into their common will reveal their ethnicity in ways that you might not tell by looking at them. It can go on from there.

    *Anything* new about the ethnicity can only help and is likely to help a lot.

    When Testudo reveals what enemy drove out the altenes, it's likely to lead to new diplomatic angles. Somebody who can beat altenes. Maybe they'll invade cinera. Maybe they'll invade Iridine and we'll need cineran help to drive them out. Maybe the altenes are collectively strong enough now to beat them, and the call goes out to every loyal altene to get ready to invade the old homeland.

    Anything new can only help. We got stale with no new developments.,
