Received two Alarcity scrolls after server came back up

#1
Edit:
Luthius clarified in Discord that receiving two alacrity scrolls was intended. One gives a 24 minute buff (the short duration set accidentally), and the second one gives a 24 hour buff.
Apparently the word is 'alacrity' not 'alarcity'. I've been saying alarcity in my head my whole life and now I don't know what's real anymore.
/Edit

Considering the circumstances with which we were kindly gifted these Alarcity scrolls, I felt I should post about this right away. :D Screenshot included below.

I appear to have two of the Alarcity scrolls gifted to players on 2020-03-24 when the shard came back online (~8 PM PST). The circumstances surrounding how I ended up with two alarcity scrolls:
- I logged on to my character Kinshack shortly after the shard went live again and hunted for a bit.
- After returning to the bank, one of the two alarcity scrolls appeared (magically) in my backpack. "Huh, that's odd". I placed the scroll in my bank and logged off for a bit.
- An hour or so later (~10:15 PST) I logged back on, and found another alarcity scroll in my backpack. The first alarcity scroll was still in my bank box so...I now have two.
- I moved both scrolls to my backpack to take the below screenshot.

Let me know if you need any more info! My Discord tag is Tanarus#6443 if you'd like to contact me through that.

Thanks for the wonderful shard, and sorry that the last 24 hours have been such a headache for you all.

They weren't on the server anymore but given the situation, we decided to reintroduce them. Due to possible sleep deprivation, Luthius accidentally created a 24 minute one and then made the correct 24 hour one. Enjoy the alacrity scrolls!

Dumb question, what do they do?

Found this, is it the same?
"A Scroll of Alacrity (SoA) will enhance gains in the skill listed for 15 minutes. When used, you can gain up to 0.5 at a time instead of the normal 0.1 point."

Ah, thank you Expo! Very cool of you guys, especially given the circumstances.
