Updating you on the Latest Happenings at Raid Guild!
Projects and Updates ⚔️
Welcome back - raiders, apprentices, and travelers of the metaverse! The Bear is eating Moloch and MCON is right around the corner. So sharpen your swords and straighten your robes, the Dark Forest beckons!
🚨 Rave Guild 🚨
Whispers heard in the dark corner of the tavern…
Raiders in dark cloaks huddled around a sound machine emitting a steady beat
🎶 …boots and cats and boots and cats…🎶
Such dark magic has conjured an otherworldly sound.
Intrigued, you move closer…
… and see a glowing orb of light with colors your eyes have never before seen
Oddly you feel no fear… only an overwhelming feeling of love
You decide to take a chance and approach the dark figures
They turn to you with smiling eyes and in unison reply… never stop dancing
Without a word a raider with glimmering auburn-red hair and a sparkle affixed to her cheek hands you a scroll of parchment that reads:
You’re invited to contribute your organizational and creative powers to aid in the summoning of a party for raiders and frens, to be hosted at IRL Underground in Denver the week of MCON 2022
We shall manifest a celebration of dance music, visionary art, and sick merch in the pursuit of FUN and entertainment for our fellow DAO-ists.
If you are willing to offer your creative or organizational powers to aid in this pursuit, Engage with @Jaqi in the #raveguild Channel in Guild Commons!

🗞️ HEADLINE 🗞️
The HEADLINE Raid was shipped and it kicks ass. HEADLINE is a Web3 Newsletter and blogging platform that was built in partnership with Unlock Protocol, Ceramic, Lit Protocol & IPFS. Go try it out! Even better, migrate your web2 blog over to HEADLINE.
💗 Healers Guild 💗
Healers are a collective of members, assembled around their concern with the lack of incentives, tracking and clarity about all the work that’s happening behind the scenes at Raid Guild.
We’ve allocated funds each month to start incentivising ops work. The Healer’s Guild, manages process and incentivizes progress within Raid Guild’s internal operations. We’re using Govrn and Coordinape to track and reward valuable Raid Guild Healers.
To activate our Govrn bot, named Kevin Malone, simply type /join in the discord chat and then you can log work using /report. Kevin Malone will update in DMs, allowing you to report your activities.
Clarity is our New Token Gated notes and files solutions initiative, spear headed by @scottrepreneur. We will be taking notes for Raider Roundup and RaiderRoundtable/Futures here going forward.
Raid Guild is introducing an interoperable DAO staking and soul bound token cohort dApp for asynchronous onboarding.
DAOs can deploy their own cohort clones which require users to stake certain assets. The participants receive a soul bound token after staking and this token is used to provide gated access to the cohort and resources.
The staked assets are then forfeit if the user doesn’t complete the onboarding process. We can easily add new implementations for staking NFTs, or different membership criteria over time.
Brown Bags and Learning
Every Friday, Raiders can attend a brown bag session, where a fellow Raider gives a 30 minute workshop on any expertise.
The first session was led by Dekan. He guided us through some memetic Product Design, which is kind of where we came up with the Brown Bags.
Over the following weeks, Plor led us in skrum and bip, BorrowLucid led us in some fiction writing, Bitbeckers taught us about the Summon Raid app and Dekan led another about Bootstrapping Community. That one was definitely the most popular.
Updates from the Dark Forest
🌶️ MCON 🌶️
Do you like spicy tacos? (translation: MetaCartel and DAOs) Well, MCON prep is in full swing and we can’t wait. If you haven’t sent in your application, here’s the invite.
🏰 DAO Palace Experience 🏰
As a regenerative use of a cultural heritage site, DAO Palace was an unconferencing event at Buckeburg Castle, Germany, from July 1-15. Some Raiders participated, sporting their Raid Guild hoodies and keeping the rest of us up to date on the DAO Palace Newsletter
🖤 MolochDAO Grant Funding Round 🖤
Our fellow demon slayers, over at Moloch DAO, opened up for another grant round on August 1st. See their latest blog post to learn how to ask them for some ETH.
