This is the wiki for the alea iacta est (AIE) gaming community. The phrase "alea iacta est" is Latin for "The die has been cast", the famous quotation made by Caesar, before crossing the Rubicon river and setting his path inexorably to war with Pompey. Our use of this motto plays on the double meaning of dice used in gaming and "we like Latin phrases".
AIE started in 2007 as a World of Warcraft guild Alea Iacta Est on the Earthen Ring US realm. We have grown into several thousand players and multiple multiplayer games and Steam. We do not focus on any on aspect of gaming (raiding, PvP, fishing, etc.)--but encourage our guildies to enjoy all types of gaming in a family-friendly, stress free environment.

The AIE Podcast is a podcast covering various AIE-related topics. All content is created by AIE Guild members, for AIE Guild Members.
- Currently hosted by Ghomus, Acuzod and Alludra; the intro features theme music from Blue Man Group, as well as the podcast's catch phrase, as coined by Dills, "The die has been podcast!" This section includes some host updates about current gameplay and time spent in AIE's various guilds.
- Continuing from the intro, our hosts discuss the latest news and goings on from AIE. Guild News usually includes mention of the Guildie of the Week, current and updated guild events across the games.
AIE Game Spotlight
- We interview officers and members of various games that AIE is in to bring you up to date about what is going on in all the games that AIE plays.
- That's right--any guildie can send in a segment! Here are segments that have played from our guildies:
- The current recurring segments as of April 25, 2012:
- Submissions are accepted by all guildies for segments or bumpers on any subject. The only rule governing content is that your content must fit existing guild rules (cannot contain profanity, etc). If you want to record a segment for inclusion into the podcast, record it in the audio program of your choice, and then attach .mp3, AAC, or .wav formatted audio file to an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Sprinkled throughout the podcast are bumpers made by guildies for the podcast. These short (under 10 seconds) sound clips help to break up the various segments. Most of these follow the pattern of "This is Name and you're listening to the AIE Podcast!".
- For questions on tips on recording your segments and bumpers, please check out the Tip Giver's Tip of the Week Archive and the Podcast Segment Recording page.
- The hosts sometimes give shout-outs to the chatroom and for favorable reviews on iTunes! Hint, hint!
- Occasionally the podcast will host a contest for listeners or members of the live stream audience. Details and rules are typically outlined in the podcast.
