    Welcome to The Virtue Radio
    Release Party Hosting &

    Holiday Coverage Planning Page!


    RELEASE PARTY INFO


    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.

    THANK YOU past and future hosts, attendees and livestreamers!

    In the past, many Avatars that would have liked to host Release Parties were not able to because of a few key obstacles. The biggest one was that a lot of Avatars didn't know they could host a Release Party or how to sign up to be a host. A few times, last year, we lost a few hosts due to RL or they were not playing at the time. To be fair, knowing what the future holds 5-10 months ahead can be a challenge!​

    So we've decided to come up with a new way for Avatars to request hosting a Release Party that should help solve that stuff and make it super fair for everyone too.

    By the way, we provide a custom-artwork poster for the Release Party that includes photography from your venue (be ready for Alleine's camera a few weeks before the party!) and distribute it in Social Media, Discord and the official Forums. Of course, hosts may distriubute their posters wherever they wish as well.​

    Here's how Hosting works:
    1) Every month, the week immediately following the current Release Party, we will be posting a request for volunteers wishing to host the next Release Party right here in the forums.

    2) If you would like to host a Release Party, simply add a reply to this thread, AFTER the notice goes up, saying which in-game Avatar will be hosting. We will keep the post open for 7 days.

    3) After 7 days, we will take everyone's name and drop it in a hat, live on Twitch, and choose a winner. The winner will host the next Release Party!

    4) We will be drawing a 2nd name as a backup in case something happens with the winning host.

    Release Party Host 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, 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. This includes alts.

    4.) You can volunteer to host multiple times. 1 host per year is used if you actually host a release party. We hope you will volunteer multiple times!

    5.) Release Party hosting and Holiday coverage are separate and don't affect one another. If you host a Release Party you can still have as many events covered by Avatars Radio you wish!

    6.) We follow the official Release schedule here. Hosts will be given 2-3 Saturday dates within that release to choose from for the event. Sometimes this may change especially during the holiday season.​

    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. You will need to specify a DJ and/or a music preference with your request for a party.

    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)

    Release Party Host Rules:
    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.
