Rewards may be reaped from the Episode 2 Section ID Badge Shop.

Three changes were made this year:

- Badges now drop room wide.
- Badge location changes daily.

Unplanned Server Downtime 5/8/2020

There was some unexpected server downtime for the past, let's say, 12 hours or so...

The host the main login server VPS was on was having issues with multiple VMs.

I don't know if the host has been fixed or if they've migrated the login server to a new VM, but I did notice, when I woke up, everything was restarted.

I've put up the login server again and things are running now as they should be.

I'll inquire and update this post with more information as I have it, but the game is up now.

We apologize for any inconvenience this down time may have caused you.

Thanks for understanding.
