    Welcome to The Virtue Radio
    Release Party Hosting &

    Holiday Coverage Planning Page!


    RELEASE PARTIES WITH
    EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF SOTA
    DJ DARKSTARR

    [​IMG]


    The reason we have Release Parties is that they are Developer Stress Tests in disguise.

    Because every Release brings so much new stuff and changes, we gather in one zone, with Shroud of the Avatar Executiver Producer and Developer, DJ @DarkStarr on the air, and try to "break" the game.

    Your hosting and attending Release Parties is essential for the health of our game and great for the community.


    Perks of being a Release Party Host:

    • DJ Darkstarr, of course!

    • Custom artwork animated poster featuring photography from your venue that includes your town's name, business name and/or your name if you wish (be ready for Alleine's camera a few weeks before the party!)

    • Cross-platform publicity on: forums, social media, Discord and the SotA official email newsletter (dependent on keeping poster schedule on time)

    • Lots of visitors to your towns, homes or places of businesses


    How to be a Host:
    1. Every three months, we will be posting a request for volunteers wishing to host the next 3 Release Parties here in the forums.

      We'll be pulling six names, three Hosts and three Host Backups depending on how many volunteers we get. Release Hosts are drawn and then a 2nd round of Backups will be drawn.

      If both Hosts are not able to host the event, we will have the Release Party on The Queen of Chaos, @DarkStarr's airship in Rifts End.

    2. A notice will go up that Volunteering is Open. Add your name to enter including:

      In-game name of Host


      Town, Home, Business, etc name

      Preferred Release:
      you can choose 1 or more of the releases. Each release will have its own drawing, so if you choose more than 1 you will be in more than 1 drawing. If your name is called, that is the Release you will Host or Backup Host!

    3. After 14 days, we will take everyone's name and drop them in hats, live on Twitch to choose winners!

    Rules:
    1. ANYONE can host a Release Party. As long as you have a space that can fit anywhere from 30-100 rowdy Avatars and potentially the following: random monster spawns, fireworks, streakers, forest and farm animals, time warps, television coverage, pvp attendees (if enabled), erratic weather and general chaos.

    2. Join us on the Avatars Radio Discord Chat to discuss planning: https://discord.gg/G47DsdC

    3. You may only host one Release Party per year. Hosts may start volunteering again in 2021.

    4. You can volunteer to host multiple times. We hope you do!

    5. Release Party hosting and Holiday coverage are separate and don't affect one another.

    6. We follow the official Release schedule here. Hosts will be given 2 dates within that release to choose from to Host. This may change especially during the holiday season or other incidences of DJ availablilty.

    THANK YOU past and future hosts, attendees and livestreamers!

    HOLIDAY COVERAGE INFO

    Virtue Radio LOVES covering Holiday Parties for our listeners! The kinds of parties we've hosted in the past are so diverse, from Yule Guild Celebrations, Campfire Stories, POT Grand Openings, PvP Tournaments, Chill Jazz Gatherings, Halloween Grand Balls. The party theme list goes on and on and is only limited by our Listeners incredibly creative imaginations.

    Holiday Coverage dates below are 1st come 1st served!
    Post in this thread if you want to request Holiday Coverage.

    Holiday Parties are covered by our staff DJs, not including DJ Darkstarr.

    Chinese New Year
    Valentines Day
    Mardi Gras
    St. Patrick's Day
    Easter
    May Day
    Victoria Day
    4th of July
    Memorial Day
    Canada Day
    Octoberfest
    Halloween
    Thanksgiving
    Christmas
    New Years Eve
    Any other Holiday we didn't think of!

    Party Hosts (that's you!) provide their own posters/flyers for distribution. If you submit a poster/flyer we are super thrilled to distribute it for you on Social Media, Discord and the Official Forums granted they meet our criteria (spelling, accuracy etc)

    Holiday Party Planning:
    1) We will be contacting you one month before your requested Holiday Party to work out the details and to confirm your availability to host your party. If we cannot contact you or if you decline the party after 1 week, we will offer the date to the community.

    2.) Join us on the Avatars Radio Discord Chat to discuss planning: https://discord.gg/G47DsdC

    3.) There is no limit to the number of Holidays a singer person can have hosted.

    4.) Hosting a Release Party with DJ Darkstarr is separate from Holiday DJ Coverage. You can have both!

    Hope to have my town before Halloween! Spooky/Haunted themed all year long. Not sure when Episode 2 will be released but will do look forward hosting parties once I have a nice place setup! Basement/Dungeons seems like a bad choice if we wanna crash the game! ^^

    Volunteering for Release 74 is now closed.

    Congrats @Griffler!

    If you're interested in hosting the next release party stay tuned for when volunteering will be open in the next few weeks.
