Welcome to the AIE Wiki page for <The Game is Afoot>!


<The Game is Afoot> is part of the Alea Iacta Est Gravitas sub-guild.  Its mission is to complete all end-game raid content in a fun, mature environment. Crafting legendary items and earning raid achievements is also a side mission of the team.

The team was founded by Sunbendyr in late April of 2011 under the name <To The Pain>, from the ashes of the Achievementality 25 man raid team. Its name is taken from a line in the 1987 fantasy comedy, The Princess Bride. The team has had several roster, leader and name changes over the existance of the team.  It started under the leadership of Sunbendyr for tier 11, 12, and half of Tier 13. After stepping down, Verethrine leads for a very brief time before Eorae takes over leadership.

With the release of Mists of Pandaria, the team was renamed <Adventure Time>, based on the animated TV show of the same name. At the end of tier 14, September of 2013, Eorae steps down as leader. The team then undergoes an other name and lead change. In keeping with the theme of TV and Movie names, the new, and current, name is <The Game is Afoot>, inspired by the BBC series Sherlock. This time around, the team is lead by a council including Theiel, who handles invites and the like, Soulrath, who deals primarily with raid strategy, and Artia, who handles loot.
