On this episode of The AIE Podcast…

Childrens Week is here. Time to get your PVP on.

Spreadsheets get slimmer

May the 4th be with you!

Where can you hear your chocobo?

And we have Ben and Jasmine here to chat about the creativity of AIE

All that and more coming up right now…




We start off this week with the grandaddy of AIE communities, AIE in World of Warcraft

It’s time once again for Children’s Week, that annual event that’s part of the Long Strange Journey achievement, well known for the number of highly annoying PVP actions you have to partake in. To help, DaboGyrl has re-posted her guide for knocking out the PVP events with as little stress as possible. If you still need to complete the Long Strange Journey, you’ll want to check out her tips. They’re in the AIE Azeroth forums under the title “The Dreaded Children’s Week”. And speaking of the forums, if you’re new to AIE and looking to get into raiding, or if you have a raid team looking to fill a few spots, don’t forget we have a section of the forums just for you. In the AIE Azerth forums you’ll find the Team Recriutment sub-forum, which will let you post yourself as a free agent, or post your raid team info, so prospective raiders can find you.


And now to spreadsheets in space with the AIE EVE crew. Due to all of the changes the AIE EVE gang has gone through, leaving TEST, Joining BRAVE, and now conquering the section of space known as Catch, the AIE Corporation is making some changes to streamline the pilot training and ship fitting process. They’ve reduced the number of fit recommendations, and changed the skill training plans to match. The changes are all in the wiki if you want to check them out.  And speaking of the wiki, Hoots has been working hard to rebuild the EVE wiki to make it easier to read and find information in. However, it’s a big job, and he’s asking for help double-checking everything. Anyone can edit the wiki, so if you see something missing or that could be explained better please jump right in and change it.


For you hobbitses in AIE in Lord of the Rings Online, the LOTRO 7th anniversary party started last Saturday, and it’s been so well received, that they decided to extend it. The anniversary event and all the goodies it contains will now run through May 6th. And in celebration of the 7th anniversary, the AIE LOTRO gang held a concert and played instruments in game, and apparently they’re pretty good. Lotwook says a wandering talent scout caught the act and the guild has been asked to play at a server-wide RP festival. No idea if that’s true or if Lotwook is just pulling our leg, but there you have it.


In a galaxy far far away with the AIE in Star Wars The Old Republic Just a reminder, there is a double XP weekend coming up, starting tomorrow, Friday May 2nd and running through Monday, May 5th. BioWare will also be giving everyone who has a SWTOR account on May 4th a free MT-4T Astromech droid mini-pet. (Looks kinda like an R2-D2) May the 4th be with you!


To celebrate the AIE Nomads crew jumping in with AIE in Star Trek Online, Captain Hunter is toying with the idea of holding a Mystery Star Trek 3000 event, where everyone will cue up the Nomad episode of The Original Series to the same point, start playing it at the same time, and then riff on it over vent. If you’ve ever seen MST3K or Riff Tracks, that’s what we’re talking about here. If you want to be a part of the fun, jump in his post in the forums.


For the AIE in Final Fintasy XIV gang,Abovan and Bonroku are starting a little side project they’re calling the Chocobo Stable Podcast. I think that’s an homage to another well known AIE podcast. They’ve posted episode 0, which is their demo of the idea, and would love some feedback from the rest of the FF gang. SO give it a listen and let them know what you think. It’s at


AIE: Others

We have no news this week from the AIE RIFT, The Secret World, or Guild Wars 2 guilds, so if you’re in one of those groups and want us to talk about you, email us at, or better yet, post it in the forums and we will find it.



Here are the AIE meetups coming up in the next month…

– Spring Raid on Harry’s Hofbrau in San Jose on Saturday May 3d

– Comicapalooza in Houston Friday May 23rd

If you plan to attend either of these, RSVP on the AIE Meetup,com site, or better yet, sign up and start your own meetup!


And with that….
