Welcome to Pentolla - The Latest News

(Factual - never fake - News!)

Brief interruptions during last half of July/first week of August.

Automatic restarts of the game server will occur on SOME days
at midnight EDT (6:00 AM CET) without regard to logins or games in progress.

These will occur when conditions warrant, probably at intervals of 5-7 days.
This time was chosen to minimize disruptions, since there is very little
activity at that hour.

If you do get disconnected at that time, wait about 5 minutes,
and you should be able to login again, but any chat session or
partially finished game will be lost.

Please plan accordingly. Thank you.
