I am about 95% sure they aren't getting looted. The stuff is just vanishing into thin air and not respawning.

I have done further investigation and I believe that I know what went wrong. However, you aren't going to love the cure.

To fix this, I need to restore from backup again. Unfortunately, I can't use any of the backups from after the issue occurred as they are compromised. And even the November 9th backup that I originally used is now lost to the relentless advance of daily backups. So the most recent valid backup that I have is from November 7th.

Therefore, my plan will be to execute a rollback to that backup later tonight. I understand that this will wipe out everything that people did over the last 5 days, but I don't think there is anyway to avoid it at this point. Too many other systems have been compromised by a chain reaction of invalid data. My apologies in advance.

A slash of light appears in the air and Dulrik steps through.

Dulrik says 'I fear the world has come unhinged and I must make amends.'
Dulrik says 'Think of this as... a second chance.'
Dulrik raises his katana and rays of golden light pour fourth.

Everything goes white! And then...

What was that? Did something happen?

All seems normal.

You must have imagined it.


The deed has been done. Please login to verify the clock has been correctly set back 5 days for you.

I was coming to make a post about my theory that resets were broken, which I think was the culprit. It explains the "death rot" and the fact that things were not reappearing, including gear and even money on some NPCs (but, curiously, not all).

Am I close?

5 days is a BUMMER. But thank you for the quick resolution! <3

Does this mean if I ganked and jlooted someone with zero RP in the last 5 days, I totally got away with it and their character has to forget it ever happened?

Actually, yes. It never happened for their character and so they don’t remember. But if you broke a rule, they can still report it to the staff for action.

Lulz this is hilarious and I support it. It was all a Dream. As long as there wasn’t ooc sexual harassment or anything like that, I’d petition that you’re in the clear.

At the same time, I’d argue that the ganked player could RP that they had a dream about your intentions and can hunt you down because of a subconscious distrust and hatred toward you.

...now thinking aboun it. I might use that justification sometime soon. Lol

Now you're guilty of having no valid reason to gank and jloot someone. You're just a grief-bot here to kill the remaining 5 and a half esskayers.

But let it out.
