Forums Reversion

The cloud server that hosts the main Skotos web site and the forums experienced a hardware failure on Saturday morning that unfortunately led to severe database corruption. Several attempts to restore it failed.

This led us to our backups, but the timing was a bit unfortunate. Since the failure occurred on a weekend morning, we didn't see it until after a new backup occurred, which contained the corrupted data, and which removed our previous daily backup. This forced us to our weekly backup, which was unfortunately at the end of its time: six days old.

So, the forums are back, but we had a six-day reversion.

This should not have affects on the rest of the site, since the majority of our data is saved in our main-user-database or our games, all on remote machines.

          • Accepting Orders

            Grathus is proud to announce the opening of his new bronze business in Monlon and is wishing to draw customers from near and far. He is inviting customers to stop by and drop off orders in the box that he’s placed inside his shop. Once he’s received your order and has time to work on it he will send you a note telling you how much it will cost to have the work done so you may decide if you’re willing to pay his price. When he has received confirmation from you he will fill the order and set it aside for you. Once all orders are completed, a date will be announced for all customers to come in and pick up their orders.

            [Be sure to put any items you want to be altered inside a sack along with a parchment describing what you want done to it. Include the short description (what everyone sees when you’re wearing or handling the item) and the long description (what people see when they look directly at or are shown the item). Remember, Grathus only works on bronze.]

            Note that Grathus will only be taking orders over the next week. The deadline to have your order in is 12:00 pm CST, November 26th.

            There is a limit of 2 items per character that will be altered.

                            • Grathus should be available tonight (Jan. 6th) from 6pm to 8pm EST to allow those that have placed orders with him yet have not picked them up to do so. Some orders are still incomplete, but if you've recieved a price from him your order should be ready. Be sure to bring your coin IN A BANK SACK to him to pay for your orders. Be sure to have correct change in the sack.

                              If everyone can not make it to get their orders tonight, yet another time will be posted in the future when this can be done.
