What's in a server name? Quite a lot if you're talking about Guild Wars 2's Sanctum of Rall shard. Roger "Oldroar" Rall passed away last fall, but his name will live on when ArenaNet launches its fantasy opus on August 28th.
Rall was a member of the Gaiscioch gaming community and was renowned for his calm battlefield leadership in Warhammer Online and RIFT. Gaiscioch's website remembers him as "a voice you could not ignore." The site says, "He led armies into battle, created hundreds of memories for any who followed, and held family values higher than any man we had ever encountered. He was a role model, a hero, an inspiration to many."
The guild will hold a memorial for Rall on the server that bears his name. The event is scheduled for August 29th at 9:00 p.m. EDT at Shaemoor Garrison, Queensdale.
