Welcome to episode #270 of the the podcast celebrating the Alea Iacta Est gaming community, the die has been podcast. This is Tetsemi To my left is Mkallah: – (Hey, guys, there is a lot of alcohol in the guild kitchen). And to my right is Mewkow (Greetings, Guildies). This week we are joined by a trio of very special guests- Lanctharus, Randy (Maui), and Stigg. Tonight we have the honor and pleasure to talk about someone who is was an integral part of the AIE Community- Ralff.

Ok, we’ll be talking all things Ralff in a moment, but first, let’s cover this week’s brief news…

AIE News


AIE has set-up a Go Fund Me to raise money to cover his casket with flowers and a note to his family on behalf of AIE. Should we raise more than we can spend on that, we hope to commission a permanent marker, such as a gravestone or plaque, that briefly tells the world forever how much he meant to us.


The AIE WoW guild and its larger community joined together in game at the Shrine of the Fallen Warrior to pay tribute to Ralff and the many contributions he made to the guild both inside and out of game. We were even joined by some of our friends in CTR and a number of guildies rejoined to honor our friend.

And special thanks to Prime for streaming and recording the event- a link to the recording is in the show notes-


They are working on a Station Naming, for Ralff, in Memorial, and a ceremonial roam. Likely next weekend, keep your eyes and ears in comms.


SWTOR held a moment of silence in the Juran Mountains on Alderaan in game for the passing of Ralff.


The guild in GW had a moment of silence at Lion’s Arch Memorial.

Just a reminder, they are looking for level 80s, in decent gear, with Gliding and Heart of Thorns to unlock the “memorial guild hall.” If you are interested, ping Jehdai in the discord channel! Don’t forget to use those level boosts to catch up.


The AIE guild in FFXIV held a memorial walk in conjunction with the AIE WoW guild to honor Ralff.


The guild in STO held vigil at the Spock memorial on Vulcan

And with that, let’s get back to Stigg, Lanc, and Randy to talk about Ralff and his impact and influence on AIE.


In the beginning

There was no stuff
Then we had stuff

Reorg of the Org

Stewardships of the guild’s culture

A boss just yells. A leader does.
Engaging the masses
Fostering a culture of engagement, cooperation and communication
Fighting the tendency to build silos


And that’s our show for tonight. While the chatroom begins suggesting show titles, we want to thank Lanctharus, Maui, and Stigg, for joining us. Also,we have a current Go fund me total – $1,100.00 as of a few minutes ago – our initial goal reached in an hour
