Godspeed, Agarda. Always a Pod. In this life, and the next.

Rest in peace, Agarda.

Vale Murray Kennedy, 10 March 1964 to 9 March 2016. He died surrounded by those he loved, and by the thoughts and prayers of those who loved him from afar.

A wonderful man, a wonderful husband and the deepest of friends.

Goodbye mate.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Anyway, the Pods have a (new) Facebook group! Here:


Yes, we had one once upon a time, but it never got used and no one knows who controls the admin of it any more, so I started a new one.

So come on over and say hi! For Pods new and old.


10 Years of Love and Beer

Happy Poddiversary everyone, Pods past and present! I salute you all for making the last 10 years so adventurous.

Thanks to the Founders, the original podcasters and their audiences, who gathered together to learn the game, to explore, to level, to break the server, to become notorious, and to make such an indelible impression on the World of Warcraft that I still get people saying, “THE Pod people?!” when I introduce the guild.

Thanks to the guildies who have come and gone, who made the forums such a fun place back in the day (even the ones who set it on fire from time to time). All part of the experience.

Thanks to the guildies who have stuck around through it all, who have returned and play with us now. And to the new blood recently joined, I can only apologize in advance.

Noobs, all of you. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Love and beer to you all! But mostly love.

9 Years of Pod Madness

posted by Scruffi on September 30, 2014, at 12:23 am.

First off, thanks to everyone who came out to the Poddiversary Panda Race last friday. it seemed like everyone had fun chattering in Vent and racing through some fun content (that, surprisingly, was brand new for a few folks!). Turned out to be a nice cap-off of the Pandaren expansion, I feel.

The winners, in order:

I’m exempt from prizes, as the GM and event organizer. Tuscan has exempted himself as well because he MADE the prizes for first place and so he already has them all (round of applause for his contribution, please). So that leaves 8 tiers of prizes. Which are in the form of cash (gold) and mounts/pets, as follows:

Priestess: Mount + pet + 5000g
Roxi/Violencia: 2 Pets + 4000g
Gotar: Pet + 3000g
Zabros: Pet + 2000g
Lokansenna: Pet + 1500g
Walajut: Pet + 1000g
Bessie: Pet + 500g
Cheeba: Pet + 250g

The mounts/pets:
MOUNT: Sky Golem
Personal World Destroyer x3
Moon Moon
Sapphire Cub
Chi-ji Kite
Yu’lon Kite
Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling
Feindish Imp x2
L’il Bling
Pandaren Air Spirit
Menagerie Custodian
Mountain Panda x2
Mini Mindslayer
Viscidus Globule

Now, since I have no idea what pets people have I’m going to let each winner pick their favorites, starting at the top of the list: priority goes to the higher winners, so I will be sending an in-game mail to the winners in succession asking you to pick your favorites. So keep an eye out for that.

Thanks again to everyone that came to the Poddiversary – see you all at the Halloween Event!
