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.

    Hello players!

    First, we want to thank the many of you that have recently been willing to set aside old stories in favor of forging new ones. These new characters, adventures, and friends add even more layers to the rich foundation on which our gameworld has been created.

    With the increased enthusiasm from players new and old, we've watched the numbers of players online at once climb, consistently hitting 60+ at various times of the day. To that end...

    The challenge: Reach 100 players online at one time.

    The rewards: Each account online during the day we reach our goal will receive 1 BP, 100 GSP, *and* we will host a fun OOC-parchment day.

    The fine print: At least 75% of the 100 goal must be from established accounts. Trial accounts do not count towards the goal, nor will they receive rewards.

    So get out there and shake old players loose from the woodwork, convince your friends to finally join you in playing, get streaming on Twitch or YouTube, whatever works best for you. If we can hit the goal prior to May 31st, maybe I'll even throw in a bonus reward.

    Thank you!

      A new option is available to VC packages that receive custom items. If you wish to forgo the custom item you can request coin instead. The exchange rate is 100 talents per custom item.

              A rumor circulates around the streets of Iridine...
              On Black Pearl Street, in the Quartz Heights, a new store opens. Fine wines of various vintage,
              origin, and flavor are available, and are said to change between one season and the next.
