Welcome to episode # 219 of the the podcast celebrating the Alea Iacta Est gaming community. This is Tetsemi. Over here, in the Silly Pants, is Alachaas (“Al, say something here”). And right over there, being overly dramatic, is Hunts the WInd! (say something here, Hunts). This week we are joined by special guests Tersio and Stupid Genius, or as we call him, Stu who are here to talk to us about AIE in EVE online Welcome!

Ok, we’ll be digging into EVE shortly, but first, let’s cover this week’s news…


This is more of Frogpants in general news, but the dates for Nerdtacular have been announced- the evening of Thursday, July 30th for the reception, and Friday, July 31 and Saturday, August 1st for the official event. We are at the fabulous Snowbird Resort again- and the discount rate is nerd15. And if you have never been to Nerdtacular, you need to go- it is a great event celebrating the people at the heart of the Frogpants community and there is usually a Huge AIE contingency.

Want to do Molten Core, but can’t stand LFR with 39 random people? Rho is planning one last trip tonight a- Raid will begin forming up at 10:45pm Eastern, no sign up is necessary – keep your eye on AIELFR and Guild chat this evening! And for those not listening for the live recording- sorry for the outdated news!

The guilds self proclaimed eldest member, Tynchal, is putting together an in game secret Santa- put yourself on AIE’s Naughty or Nice list (wait, we are Horde, Naughty and Nice are not exclusive) – there is a link in the forums! Thanks to Tynchal for being Great Father WInter’s personal elves!

There are lots of great groups forming on the forums- Rep Grinding, leveling groups, raids looking for new members- wander on over to see all of the fun.

Happy Third Anniversary to AIE in SWTOR! And going on tonight at 9pm Eastern is the anniversary celebration! Max and the crew plan on a World Boss Hunt, holiday music, and there is a rumor of presents. The plan is to start out on the Imperial side and meet on the guild ship and then move to then move back and forth to the Repub side depending on interest.

SWTOR 2014 Life Day event is running from Dec 16 2014 to Jan 6, 2015, and there are many great rewards, mounts, and pets (where is Alludra when you need her). Snow-Covered Parcels are the main currency used in this event. You get them randomly by throwing the Life Day Snowball Bomb at other players with a 15% chance to receive parcels.

Capt Hunter has announced that AIE in Star Trek Online is dangerously close to earning the 2014 Holiday Ornament to hang in our Starbase.

They’ve wrapped up a few of the requirements, but still need a few Terran Ornaments, Bolian Candles. Jump into STO to see how you can help. (Check to see
