Roger "Oldroar" Rall was a longtime fan of Guild Wars who died before Guild Wars 2 was released. He was a member of Gaiscioch, a Celtic-themed guild founded during the Dark Age of Camelot. On learning of his death, his guild members wrote letters and emails to ArenaNet about Rall, and requested a server named after him. Arenanet named the Sanctum of Rall world in his memory and as a lasting legacy, and added an NPC Historian Goshkia who talks about a charr tribune, Rall Oldroar.
- There is a tradition of roleplaying game development companies naming elements of a new game after a recently deceased fan, including Morrowind, Might & Magic VII, and Ultima IX.
