The Great Skotos Split Is Here [UPDATED]

The long-planned Skotos split is here. We are going to be separating Skotos into the four games that we're passing off to individual players (Marrach, TEC, the game formerly known as Ironclaw Online, the game formerly known as Lazarus Sleeping), and in the near future the core Skotos site will shutdown.

Here's how it will work:
* On Monday, we will turn off the ability to make any purchases through the main site. This will be the end of credit card purchases for Skotos games.
* We will run final automated credit card purchases on Tuesday morning. This is typical, in that our regular subscriptions are always set to run on the 1st through the 28th.
* On Wednesday, we will begin converting the games over to the new auth server that I've been working on for the last month and a half. All data will be converted over from the moment I grab the database. This means that all of your account information, including all payments (but not including any credit card information or Paypal information) will be duped to all the games: you'll be able to play any of them for the time you'd previously paid at the main Skotos site.
* We'll then start integrating the individual sites for each game with the new stand-alone setup.
* And likely I'll be resolving bugs in the auth server that only turn up through extensive usage.
* Meanwhile, we'll start handing off games to the individuals who will be running it in the future. I'm at this point over the time I'd initially committed to Skotos by a bit more than three weeks, but I'm expecting I'll need to offer support a little into May to make sure everyone is running well and that I've helped Christopher, Skotos, and the game leads deal with any intricacies of the hand-off.
* We'll request that all games remove all information from users who didn't stick with their game within a year.

I hope this will go as smoothly as possible. There will surely be bumps in the road. In particular, expect some random downtimes on Wednesday, when I convert over the games to the new servers, and expect the potential for problems on *next* Thursday, when I see how things work in the new setup.

A Few Updates as of 5/3:

1.) Castle Marrach, TEC, and Allegory of Empires are now split out from the main Skotos UserDB, which is the first (and biggest) step in separating these games. Multiversal Revelations will follow on Monday.

2.) Each site has a new login page of the form login.itsdomainname. This is the proper place to login to that game, and where you should access all UserDB functionality. Anything you do on the main Skotos users pages will no longer be reflected. Yes, that means you should be using the new pages to update your accounts, purchase months of play, and purchase subscriptions. Credit card payments are no longer possible, but Paypal is.

3.) Skotos is still running the games as of this moment, but they'll be transferred to the individual teams by this time next month.

4.) We've had some problems with credit cards continuing to run on the older UserDB system. We've refunded any bills that went through on the main system following the split, and apologize for the inconvenience. The plan is to turn the old UserDB off tomorrow, so that will absolutely stop the bills at this point. If you were accidentally billed, do note both that the amount was refunded the same day AND it isn't reflected on the new systems. [And as of Monday morning, those old charges seem to have been halted entirely.]

5.) We've discovered that about 20 accounts have credits of various amounts of them. This is a concept that is no longer supported in any meaningful way on the new UserDB, so we'll convert those credits to days of play at the most generous ratio.

      I liked that there wasn't betting last night. The games moved along nicely.

        But if this is the case, they should develop actions to help increase all stats. Little things you can do so that we can avoid the courses all together. It would be wonderful.

          The proper command for taking an arrow from the shield is 'rip arrow from shield' or is there something else too?

            There's a bug that I forgot to report regarding that. Sometimes archers shoot iron_arrows or something to that extent. That underscore is f**king you in the a**.

            Try this following command...


            rip . from shield

                Leap

                Leap <direction>

                You must be standing on a roof to leap.

                I assume that was from back in the day when roof tops were being introduced as a fun place to dart about away from vigilantes? Never were though I think...

                  I could have sworn there was a command to take pouches in queue from just typing a command like.

                  Like "Take pouch from corpse #1, 2, 3, 4, 5" or something. Anyone remember what the command was?

                          ac .

                          ac<space>period

                          ac .

                          Checks the approach status of every PC/NPC in the same area as you, and if they're approached to you or vice versa. It's also a silent 'count people' command.

                          By the way, you can still do 'match .' while KO and see where you are and what's in your area.

                              Is there a way to loot pouches, empty them and discard them with the collect command? Or atleast empty them?

                                What I do is take a thug's sack and put all the pouches in it as I collect them.
                                collect pouch from <1-21> corp
                                put pouch in faded
                                Take the sack some place secluded and empty it. Then...
                                Collect contents <1-21> pouch into faded sack
                                Then, I just take the money from the faded sack and discard the sack along with all the invaluable lame things inside like bruised apples and dice.
                                Finally trying to keep the game world somewhat clean I group together all the pouches and discard them.

                                It isn't near as much trouble as it sounds. Especially with a large number of pouches.
