The original site was created by Baron of the Mice on the 12th of June 2005, under the guise of a message board hosted by InvisionFree. The next five members to join the Arrakeen community were Orald, Planetologist Umma Kynes, Pyr, Servant of the Sisterhood, and Crysknife, respectively. Pyr left soon afterwards, and the remaining four members were then chosen to join the Arrakeen Staff
