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)

  • Aralex

    For those who have not kept up with the latest, a deeper level of the pits under the Colosseum has opened!

    The terrible Aralex, a monstrous lizard with deadly menace and a taste for the flesh, has made its home in Iridine here.

    Mysteries and riches await those who dare traverse the path of the lizard.

    [Note on dangers: Some of the Aralex WILL put unconscious players into a coma, don't push your limits!]

    Outraged at the death and destruction of the dreaded Aralex, retired gladiator Prestis, within the colosseum, has taken to collecting the eggs of the Aralex, and offering favors to those who bring them to him.

    [Prestis will accept Aralex Eggs from PCs, and offer lessons in a variety of skills he knows in exchange. The more eggs you've turned in, the more lessons he's willing to give you.]

        The Third Level of the Aralex Pits has been unleashed.

        Note that this area is different:
        Rather than random spawns, you must clear a room entirely of aralex before you can proceed further. This is a world-level progress, so anyone and everyone who is capable of fighting Aralex can contribute here, alone or in a group.
        Beware, this is a breeding grounds, and over time, progress will be lost.
        At any given time, you can see a rough estimate of how many lizards are left to clear in the current room within the room description.

          The lizards per room in the third level has been overall reduced.

          As the loot throughout Level Three is based on lizard kills, this should result in more often meeting the titanic aralex without making loot found disproportionate.

            Titanic creatures have a lot of blood, folks.
