Ladies and gentlemen! We have a New Guildie Of The Moment! Everyone give three cheers for Wyllow of The Secret World! Many great things were said about this guildie including

  • This player has been super helpful and very patient every time I have spoken to her in game. She’s always answered questions when she is free and is willing to lend a helping hand.
  • Wyllow is awesome, one of the nicest and most helpful people I have met in any game.
  • I totally agree, she has been a vital part of AIE Secret World and she is just all around amazing

So everyone please congratulate Wyllow if you see her in game, and remember you too can nominate someone for Guildie of the Moment, just send an email to


If you’re a former Rift player who wandered off to other things and wants to see how Telara has been keeping, you might be interested to know that Rift will be free to play this weekend. This isn’t the free-to-play version that’s in the works; this is just a special deal for former subscribers who want to check the game out again to decide if they want to add it back to their game rotation when the game goes free to everyone. The free time started today, May 30th, and will last until Monday, June 3rd.


The Guild members of Lord of the Rings Online are taking advantage of the new Springfest in-game event! It all starts on June 1st at 9 PM Eastern time. where they will have live music, and later in the evening a foray into the Ettenmoors for PvMP (player versus monster-player). More information can be found in the lord of the rings section of the AIE forums in the AIE Springfest ‘13 thread.


For all you current and future starfleet captains, we are happy to announce Star Trek Online has now been added to the AIE UMAMI membership database. All current STO guild members need to sign up in UMAMI to register their characters. AIE’s starfleet admirals will be conducting a purge of all guild members in game that are not in UMAMI on June 29th, so make sure your captains are accounted for. Big thanks to the hardworking Stigg for making the update


If you’d like to take a peek at some of the World of Warcraft Tier 14 raid content, our own If Looks Could Kill raiding team has put together a very impressive video from showing off their adventures in Mogu’shan Vaults, Heart of Fear, and Terrace of Endless Spring. You can find the link in the AIE Azeroth forums, or in our show notes


The AIE Cookbook is a hit! At least according to Beefmaster and Beefywife. The Beefs posted on the forums about the scrumptious dinner they had using Grudek’s Tater Tot Casserole recipe.  If you’d like to feed your own AIE horde, you can get a copy of the AIE Cookbook in the Frogpants store for just $19.95. The cookbook is full of beautiful illustrations by our own master cartoonist and head nerd Scott Johnson, and of course wonderful home-grown family-favorite recipes from dozens of AIE members. All profits go to fund AIE in Real Life events, such as the Guild Hall at Blizzcon, so it’s good for AIE as well as your belly.


World of warcraft has a new mount for sale The armored Bloodwing! If you have 25 dollars american, and feel like you don’t have anything wicked cool to ride around azeroth on, we suggest you give this shadow bat a look.


If you follow the AIE EVE forums, there appears to be some interesting hubbub going on concerning the defense of our corporation and the TEST alliance. Lanc, you do part-time work in the space race; is there anything you can share about the fracas?


The great battles of 1-SMEB

    • According to DOTLAN 2,600 ships have been lost since the beginning of the engagement.
    • TEST Alliance alone fielded over 1200 pilots for battles 1 & 2 and 800 for the third.
    • Have no fear TEST was victorious but it si not even summer yet.
    • There is this great little EVE podcast put on by members of AIEU called Cap Stable.  You may want to check it out and find out what happened in detail.
    • Stay tuned for more details.
