In case you missed it, AIE has launched two fundraisers to benefit the guild. The first is the Pass the Hat fund drive to cover the costs of our web hosting, site, and other expenses a guild our size generates. The second is the AIE BlizzCon Guild Hall Kick Starter Scott Johnson announced on this show last week, which will fund the amazing AIE gathering we hold every year alongside BlizzCon. The Guild Hall has been epic in past years, and this year, the kickstarter will make sure it’s even more amazing than before. If you’re interested in contributing to either fund drive, please see the forums for more details. (Note: the Kickstarter is not out yet, but keep your eyes out for it!)


Hey you graphic artists out there, AIE is looking for someone to create a set of icons for our UMAMI membership database website. We’re currently using images shamelessly stolen off the net, but we want to do better than that, and come up with images that are unique to our community. If you’ve got the pixel pushing power, all the details can be found in the forums.


Meetups! This week we’ve got several Meetups being suggested. Siv is looking to hold a meetup at the Yard House in Lakewood, Colorado on Sept 28th; Aset has suggested a meetup during the Browncoat Ball in Phoenix on Oct 4th; and Psyanide is looking to gather together during the Nashville Comic Con which runs from October 18th to 20th.  If you’re anywhere near those locations, see the relative posts in the Community Discussion section of our forums, and of course, don’t forget we have a site which is perfect for planning get-together.


Of course we’ve been talking all about World of Warcraft and especially the new zone, the Timeless Isle. One of the great things about the island is all the rares that spawn non-stop and drop epic loot. There are so many, it’s a little overwhelming, and nearly impossible to figure out where one is before it gets killed. Well Romulo has come to our aid, and posted a Wowhead map showing all the rare names and spawn locations. Study it well, there are a lot of free 496 purples waiting for you!


Jedis, this one is for you. Even though Star Wars: The Old Republic is free to play, they still offer a subscription, with paying subscribers getting many benefits that Free players miss out on. Rowna just posted that the subscribers will also be getting the next expansion, Rise of the Hutt Cartel, for free! New subscribers will get it if they sign up before October 20th. Previous subscribers must have been inactive before June 14th and sign up before Oct 20th to qualify. Current subscribers must stay subscribed until Oct 20th to qualify? Confused? Of course not, the Force is strong with you!


So one of the reasons to play Star Trek Online is all the cool ships, right? Well let’s be frank, you can’t be logged into the game ALL the time, but Perfect World entertainment is giving away 3 different 1 year ‘subscriptions’ so you can collect your ships OUT of the game as well! Check out the official site for more details! You know you want your Dreadnaught class starship keeping yer papers in order, check it out! Each of the 3 prizes is 24 ships!
