On October 4th, 2014, join guildies, podcast personalities and AIE officers for a one of a kind gaming event to help pay for our guild expenses like hosting, umami and the always popular Guild Hall at Blizzcon. There are a ton ways you can participate, including playing online games, advertising or buying a guest spot on the AGOG, or just donating (plus, swag!).
Spots are available on the Frogpants store- http://frogpants.bigcartel.com/category/aie-game-a-thon and all of the information is listed on at www.aie-guild.org.
Meetups- There is a Final Fantasy Fan Festival at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on October 17-19 and of course, we have a meetup planned. The FFXIV officers will be hosting a mini guild hall, if you are planning on attending the event, stop by the meetup site to sign up. ALso, we have a meetup site! Use it to plan your next AIE event. Right now, there is a discussion going on around a possible get together at Dave and Busters in the Franklin Mills Mall in Philadelphia.
Just a reminder for those listening, we are now recording on sundays at 6pm pst! Spread the word and bring your friends to see our awesome live show!
Doing something fun around the AIE Gaming Community??? Let us know- we always want to hear what our great guildies are doing in game.
