Fate's Harvest BETA Live (Full Open Soon)


  • Pitcrew

    This is not my game, but the game of a friend who has spent nearly 2 years on it, learning code as she went. It's pretty damned Awesome, and you should check it out.

          Fate's Harvest is (finally) entering Beta! Yay! Confetti!

    We are a Changeling/Mortal+/Mortal game using 'Changeling: the Lost' v1.0 (okay, more like 1.5) and modified GMC rules. Set in Vermont, most non-Hedge play will take place in the imaginary city of Fort Brunsett and, atop the nearby cliffs, the small and far too knowledgeable mountain town of Tamarack Falls. Also imaginary.

    The Freehold of Fate's Harvest is about to reach its second birthday. It is also about to learn just why the valley of Tamarack Falls was ripe for the picking...

    The MUX is designed to be a place where players can explore the themes and struggles of Changelings reaching the ends of their journeys, be they those who chase their dreams back to Arcadian arms or those they leave behind. High Wyrd is as common as low, as are the dangers it invites. Either road has consequences. Are they worth the price?

                          Accepted templates include:
    

    Changeling, Fetch, Psychic, Thaumaturge, Fae-touched, Enchanted and Ensorcelled.

            Seasonal, Solar and Transitional Courts are permitted.
    

    All player-alts are linked to a personal Master Account.

    Arcade Tickets are given past the weekly XP activity cap, an account-wide currency which can be traded in to purchase a number of minor boosts, items, private channels or even the chance to design and play a plot antagonist as a limited-life PC.

    Check the wiki for more details!

    GOALS DURING BETA:

    All Alpha player bits have been deleted.

    The intent is to keep Beta short. Our current plan for full launch is March 20th, 2017, to be kicked off with the Spring Crowning event.

    In the meanwhile, we want to make sure everything is squeaky clean and working as it should be! Beta is for determining whether or not our policies and systems are up to snuff, our write-ups are clear, and that we haven't, you know, left any great gaping holes for people to drive Sherman tanks through.

    Big note! ALL kith blessings have been re-written for balance and added utility. Tweaks may be made during Beta if our brilliant ideas end up less brilliant. Feedback is desired! Try to build a monster.

    Fuck. I need to re-log into it now. I left a PC I really wanted to play there.

    Yeah, but she decided to use Grump's WoD stat code Why? Dear god why?! (I know why, mind you, because it was gifted to her wholesale, but dear god, why?!)


  • Pitcrew

    Best chargen code experience I've had in aaaages.

    Is Reach/Fallcoast's?

    I mean, you are high right now, right? Right? Because that's the only explanation I can come up with!


  • Pitcrew

    No, she has completely adjusted it and recoded it into something fantastic. Hats off to her.


  • Pitcrew

    I'm really looking forward to playing Changeling for the first time! I'll definitely be in once life settles down and I can handle more than one game at a time.


  • Pitcrew

    Will try it out!

    She will never try Shadowrun, so MEH.



  • Hopefully this will have a proper ad soon ... but wanted to say that I went through the chargen process. It was very good and efficient. I think the game has potential, especially in exploring some of the deeper, higher Wyrd levels of what Changeling is about. Just a personal thumbs-up for the game for people to try it out.

    Fate's Harvest is currently down. Our host reported an outage and is trying to get everything fixed. Sadly, we have no ETA.


  • Coder

    And more updates... https://fatesharvestmux.tumblr.com/

    TL;DR: Still not up, but hopefully soon? Host crashed hard and bad and isn't giving very good updates.

    Do they have offsite backups? If so, it might be worth just finding a different host, restoring from the last good backup, and moving on.


  • Coder

    @Sparks Don't think so. Game Owner (Annapurna, on the game) was diligent in regularly doing backups, but they were all with the host itself. I could be wrong, but if there are offsite backups I'm sure they old.


  • Reader

    @skew Do you know how this impacts the wiki site? Like how much might be lost between pages created and that sort of thing? I'm not a code person. Just trying to brace myself if the worse case scenarios is recreating one or several wiki pages :S


  • Coder

    Someone tell Anna that I will help when I can if she needs to piece things back together.


  • Coder

    @DarkDeleria We're still waiting to hear clearly what will happen, but in brief:

    There was hardware failure at the host. Several servers were able to get back up with no issue - the server we are on was not one of them. There's a great deal of corrupted data. We are waiting for them to go through each customer individually to root through the corrupted data to determine how much can be saved. There's a chance we're entirely fine, and we'll be back up (HOPEFULLY!!!) tonight. There's also a chance that our data was affected, and we may have to revert back to the host's last offsite backup, which would be 5/13. This includes the game itself and also the wiki.

    The last update from the host was ~7 hours ago (like, 6am mst) and there really was no news other than "we're still working on it".

    @Thenomain Thank you! I'll let you know soon as I hear something.


  • Admin

    @skew 05/13 isn't that old. I hope it won't get to that though, good luck guys.


  • Coder

    @Arkandel No, it's not that bad.

    But I literally just apped in a character and desced a build. Gives me the sads.
