Reboots: Marrach, Lazarus, Lovecraft, Auth Server on Thursday, Friday [Complete]

On Thursday morning at 11am PT, I will be taking down the following games to upgrade them:
  • Castle Marrach
  • Lazarus Sleeping
  • Lovecraft Country
Then, on Friday morning at 11am PT I will be taking down our authentication machine:
  • User Database
Apologies for the short notice, but it's in response to a security bulletin related to the virtual machine software that these games and servers are on. We've already upgraded the rest of our machines to a new virtual machine which has thus far been less prone to security problems, and we're taking the opportunity to update these final machines in advance of a forced reboot over the weekend.

Each upgrade timeframe is expected to be an hour or less. I expect to be able to do memory upgrades for these machines at the same time.

Edit: Thursday morning upgrades for Lazarus, Lovecraft, and Marrach are now complete. The machines have also been upgraded from 2G of memory to 4G.

Edit: Friday morning upgrade now done as well, complete with upgrade of user authentication machine.

All SkotOS Maps Updated; Please Report Bugs

In the last several days I've updated the way that all the game maps are stored for Ironclaw, Lazarus, Lovecraft, and Marrach, to make it possible for our admins and GMs to add new maps and map fragments to our games. Everything is working from my browsing, but I've heard a few reports of missing maps in Marrach (which may or may not have predated the update).

If any maps seem to have gone missing in those four SkotOS games, please let me know. If you see a broken map or map fragment where the image isn't showing up:

1. Open the image in a new tab (usually by right-clicking and choosing this option from a menu)
2. Copy the URL of the image from the URL bar
3. Email that URL to me at shannona@skotos.net

  • Pankration Training Prices

    So...what IC/OOC reason is there that the Pankration school charges 8 cents a IG month for all you can train and most people pay 8 cents for one lesson? Just seems a little skewed.

    Why not have Ludus trainers for Animus, Wolves, CL that charge 8 cents a IG month?

    Discuss.

    Because not everything in this game needs to be exactly the same.

      This is truth.

      I have no problem with Pankration schooling costing hardly nothing at all.
      I do have a problem with dropping 18 talents to train three moves.

      Whatever though.

        It has always seemed to me that:

        1: Most all of the other trainers in the game are set up as freelance instructors.

        2: Pankration trainer was setup as a sort of school that would just charge tuition, not a per lesson charge.

        Of course that is just my take on the situation.

            Training one skill from 1-90 is 6 talents for anything but pank. So...200 denars vs. 9375 denars is a big difference. I'm not saying make them equal, but jeez...that's a 470% markup.

              I think you mean a 4700% markup
