New Year, New Friends!

Greetings, glorious friends! With the start of a fresh new year, I'm excited to introduce a fresh new face to the team - Roshen! Roshen will be joining on as a Senior Community Manager for Ashes of Creation. Keep an eye out for an introduction post in the coming weeks, and be sure to stop by and share a hearty hello!

On that note, I also wanted to share that my last day at Intrepid Studios will be Friday, January 14. These past three whirlwind years have been an amazing adventure - from Alpha One test shenanigans to late night Extra Life parties and beyond - and I couldn't have asked for a more glorious community to share this experience with. While I'm saddened to be stepping away from my role on the team, I have no doubt that you will be in excellent hands with Roshen!

Though my next work adventure will be outside of the gaming space, my own personal MMO love will surely keep me asking for leeks alongside you all 😉 see you on the battlefield!

Much love,


  • You know I absolutely adore you @LieutenantToast ! 😍💕

    😭 So sad you're leaving, but I am excited to see what you do in your new career outside of the industry!

    And... I know we'll see you on Verra in the future! 😉

    Goodbye Toast, I enjoyed spamming the bread emoji.
    Thanks for everything!
    I wish I were deep and tragic
  • :(

    We'll think of you every time we slip that soft piece of bread between the waiting arms of the toaster.

    Erm, this is starting to sound weird......

    A toast to Toast!
  • SorfSorf Member
    Thanks for everything Toast, good luck in your future endeavours :)
  • Wow! Still recovering from the shock.
    I hope your future employers realize how exceptionally well you have performed at Intrepid Studios.
    Thank you so very very much and I wish you all the very best in future roles and life in general.
    I hope you are able to keep the LieutenantToast name so that the good karma can follow you more readily.
    High Regards, Mack

    I'd like also to extend a warm welcome to Roshen, it's tough to hit the ground running, but I'm sure Intrepid Studios and our wonderful community will be supportive.
