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.

    [Event] It's All Fluff (Sat. Aug 17, 2019)

    9:00pm - It's All Fluff

    Great things can be accomplished working together. But as times and faces change, deals can turn sour. Will anyone be able to sweeten them again?

    [Watch for happenings throughout the week. Moderate danger. Main event at posted time.]

    ------

    [OOC Note: This event took place on the 17th of August 2019]

    On the 5th day of the Festival of the Wander in the 291st Year of the Republic we finally received some news regarding the missing shopkeeper known as Ksaia whose shop is located in Bronze Lane. She was rumored to have been kidnapped by some of the local gangsters in the Steps a very long time ago and we had not heard any news regarding her until just now.

    She met with her brother Salieste who had been searching for her ever since she had gone missing. Ksaia informed us that she had been kidnapped and was locked down in a rundown theater located in the Steps, more precisely in the Umbra Alati territory.

    She claims that the kidnappers did not wish to let her go and worked her almost to death making her famous fluff candy, day and night, in a dreadful kitchen.

    While she was detained, there was one particular man named Jeb who was very kind to her and she couldn't help but fall for him. Their love interest was mutual and Jeb had knowledge of some old tunnels that branched off in the theater's basement and led her out. They left together that night.

    Ksaia said that she would have come back and informed her brother that she was safe and sound, but Jeb was concerned that Salieste would believe him to be one of the kidnappers and that things would turn sour. They both left together and adventured through the Republic of Iridine, making their way to Astraea and back.

    When Salieste pressed her, saying that she should return to the shop and continue the family's business, Ksaia disagreed. She tasted adventure. As she so aptly said "There's a whole world out there to explore, and I want to be out in it."

    After all, the axe shop wasn't her dream. It was her "grampa's". While she was gone, Salieste tried as he could to maintain the shop, but all of this time spent searching for his sister definitely took a toll on the family business.

    She let us all know that she and Jeb had recently split. While he was good to her at first, it didn't last. He was born and raised in the Steps and had known only the life of a gangster.

    Not too long after, a grey-clad armsman thought aloud "You have something that belongs to me." and we were then attacked by a large mob of rioters. Were these rioters specifically targeting Salieste's shop? Did Ksaia steal something that belonged to this man and he wanted it back? Or was it simply that the armsman wished to have Ksaia back, as her private cook?

    We took care of the rioters. Ksaia even jumped in and kicked the living crap out of a few rioters. The problem was solved and we haven't heard anything regarding Ksaia and the Umbra Alati since, so we believe the matter is settled. Salieste's shop is once again open for business, but you will no longer find Ksaia's fluff candy for sale.

    [Event] Caught Black-Handed (Tues. Aug 20, 2019)

    9:30pm - Caught Black-Handed

    Youth and desperation can be a near-fatal mix. When one such youth gets into trouble, he may seek refuge with dangerous new "friends." Those interested in facing extreme danger to assist him should meet near the Black Hand mines.

    ------

    [OOC Note: This event took place on the 20th of August 2019]

    It was the morning of the 9th day of Lucifal in the 291st Year of the Republic and what we thought would be an uneventful day in Iridine quickly took a turn for the worse.

    There was a boy, not quite old enough to be considered a man yet, who took it upon himself to defy and find the new hideout of the Black Hand Bandits. About half a year back with all of the work being done on the road to Seld, the Black Hand Bandits decided to leave their hideout. The constant traffic of workers and skilled bodyguards ruined several of their attempts at robbing traders and drovers who used to be easy prey.

    On this particular morning, the bandits robbed and set ablaze a wagon on the road to Seld. This young boy named Bufonius managed to track them all the way out to their hideout and he ventured inside in an attempt to recuperate some of the stolen goods.

    Very far off the north of the road to Seld, on a barren hillside before the forest, there is an old stone building that is in ruins. Only two walls remain standing, and even then, barely so. There is a collapsed section of stone wall that leads downwards which will then lead you to a newly replaced trapdoor.

    Bufonius entered the area and then promptly asked for assistance as he was welcomed by the Black Hand Bandits. We made our way out there as soon as we could. Warmack and Reddex were the first to arrive and went deep inside the tunnels.

    Another large group soon arrived and went inside, but it was already too late. Reddex was swarmed by the bandits and Warmack was unable to save him. Reddex soon after passed away and his corpse was brought back to the surface.

    The large group managed to find and rescued Bufonius who was locked in the kennel. We then soon after learned that Bufonius wished to retrieve a ring that was of some value to him that the bandits had stolen earlier. The group managed to find said ring in a strongbox.

    Bufonius headed back to Seld and claimed that those within the town would gladly accept any armbands found on the Black Hand Bandits once the town opens up for all.

    The large group decided to go in and explore the series of tunnels deeper, hoping to find the leader of the Black Hand Bandits. It is then that a large hound separated the group and Lago ultimately met his demise. The group found the large, ferocious hound standing on top of Lago's chewed up lifeless body. They managed to take care of the matter and brought back the man to the surface. He had already passed and nothing could be done for his wounds.

    Lago was best known for his generosity. He often helped those who were less fortunate by offering them weapons, armor and even coin. The Republic of Iridine has lost a great man on this day.

    We made our way back to the city. Both Reddex and Lago were taken to the Temple of the Morning to be prepared by the acolytes for their upcoming funerals.

            After a familiar, festiv face has been wounded, she has decided to seek aid regarding a friend and their mutual problem. But, who is the friend and who is the foe? Gather at her usual meeting spot at the Singing Informer if you would like to learn more.

            ------

            I didn't get to attend this event due to some RL constraints (have some folks over since it's labor day week-end). If someone did and wants to share, please do so!

              (in brief, someone else can rp it up)
              Cachinna wanted help saving what turned out to be her father, who was dying of tuberculosis, though we don't know that is the name in this time, and there was no cure. Turns out her father Yovan was a part of banditry, and Tullum his partner was a killer. Yovan wanted to find peace before death, so accepted arrest, and wound up dying in jail.

                Before Yovan was arrested, he confessed his crimes and was blessed by Jaelic. Yovan and Jaelic spoke quietly about his confession, finding peace with Ereal, and the type of funeral ritual he wanted.

                Taking the corpse of Yovan, Jaelic gave him last rites and rituals as promised Yovan. So as to grant a peaceful entrance into the presence of Ereal. Unfortunately, Jaelic was not able to communicate all this to Cachinna as another Acolyte wanted to curry favor with her and took the ashes to her instead.

                Thus, Acolyte Jaelic of the Nurturing Light has decided to depart the city for a good length of time.
