Good to meet you. I'm Thaddeus.
I was hired by HERG to consult on various aspects of Hollow Earth, but I also run an alchemy shop for the people here.
Hm? What's HERG? The Hollow Earth Research Group. They rediscovered the Hollow Earth in 2004, and the creatures living there: the PsyPets.
PsyPets are highly intelligent, capable not only of hunting and fishing, but of smithing, jeweling, and a bit of magic-binding.
Even with my help, studying these creatures has been a lot of work, so HERG recruits people such as yourself to help out.
Interested in joining?
- Insist on joining!
- Ask to see some of these "PsyPets".
- Learn more about PsyPets.
- Ask how to contact That Guy Ben.
turns out psypets.net - and several of my other domains - got hit by some kind of virus! it's unclear what exactly the virus accomplished while it was around, so just to be safe, I've reset everyone's password to random nonsense. I can't tell you what your password is: you'll have to reset it!
the virus was probably targeted at WordPress - a blogging system that I have installed for a personal blog of mine at telkoth.net - but happened to worm its way into other files, causing pages to not come up. I've since patched up WordPress, mediawiki, and other third-party applications, to make sure this particular virus can't get in again!
since it was probably targeted at WordPress, it's unlikely it did anything to PsyPets, but I've done the password reset just in case. better safe than sorry!
sorry about the inconvenience
it's possible some other pages are still down due to infection. the methods it uses to execute itself have been neutralized - the virus can no longer accomplish anything - but the pages it's on won't pull up until it's cleaned out. I'm working with DreamHost to locate all of the affected files.
it's also worth noting that PsyHelp - the psypets wiki - is still not coming up. I'm working on that as well.
sorry again about all the trouble!
