All that and more coming up right now…



With Halloween coming up, it’s a good time to let a few skeletons out of the closet. Thanks to Skayne for starting up a fun little thread called AIE Confessional in the AIE: Azeroth forums, now you can share that private shocking little thing you do in game with the rest of the community. For example, do you know what Beefmaster steals when his wife isn’t looking? Or what PVP does to Lanctharus? Or just how many AIE healers secretly like to let annoying players die in the fire? It’s all in the AIE Confessional thread. What’s in your closet?


Since trying to decide by committee takes too long and often doesn’t work out well, I’ve made the ‘director’s decision’ to consolidate our Book of Heroes guilds! I’ve purged a bunch of inactive folks from Verendus and Liberates, and encouraged everyone to join up in Dignitas! They’re ready for new applicants, and are doing 2 raids a week, which will probably end up being more soon if they have a good turnout!


Nerdtacular news! What? What is this nonsense? Well nerdtacular has it’s very own twitter account! So if you want updates about N14 or random shenanigans follow @Nerdtacularshow


If you’re going to BlizzCon, and you’re going to be there Thursday the 7th at 6:30pm, you have to catch the AIE Social Hour happening at the Degrees Wine and Patio Bar at the Anaheim Marriott Hotel, which is just out in front of the Anaheim Convention Center. Now this is a bar, so there will be drinking involved, and odds are pretty good Lanctharus will amaze the crowd with another one of his drunken poetry readings. (And if he does, someone please make sure to capture it for our “Uncle Lanc, tell Us A Story” YouTube channel.) If you’re planning to be there, hit up the AIE page to sign up so they know to leave a light on for ya.


Don’t forget, we have Greenwall in Real Life! You can chat with other AIE members, even when you’re not in a game, by using our Jabber server. Jabber is a text chat system that works with a large number of chat clients, so you can find any client you like, point it to our Jabber server, and chat the day away. The information you need to point to our Jabber server is in the forums, or you can even use the Jabber web client found on the front page of the guild website at



Time now for the AIE Member Spotlight, where we highlight something interesting created by one or more of the amazing members of the AIE Community


This week we’re shining the spotlight on one of our own, and that’s Alludra! Along with AlTheMage, they produce the BattlePets podcast, all about collecting and battling pets in World of Warcraft. You can catch it every two weeks on iTunes or at


If you or someone you know in the AIE community does something spectacular, whether it’s host a podcast, write a book, make happy little paintings, or anything else, we want to know about it. Email us at with all the details.
