Past Updates leading to the event:

April 27th: The final sketch of "Stan and Lou" by MadVyking is available, called "Meet Mender Silos".  Thanks again to MadVyking for the entertainment before the show!

Also, Paragon Radio announced their next episode, which will be during the 13th Anniversary from 9-11pm Eastern (6-8pm Pacific, 2-4am GMT.)  If you missed the Anniversary, or you want to revisit the event, the podcast is accessible from the above post at any time. (The full two hours will be rebroadcast on Dawn Radio on Sunday night.)

April 26th: Massively Overpowered, the MMO News Site, will be present streaming the last two hours of the 13th Anniversary!  Check out their article, and a blog on reporter Justin Olivetti's first experience with Paragon Chat.

You can watch the recorded video on their Twitch channel.

Also, read long-time CoH reporter Eliot Lefebvre's Perfect Ten article on his ranking of the Archetypes of the game just in time for the event.

April 25th: Paragon Radio's own MadVyking has released three more "Stan and Lou" sketches with the duo entering a Portal Corp. wormhole to each of the three games of Cryptic, Champions Online, Star Trek Online and Neverwinter.  Check them out!

If you haven't heard his first "Stan and Lou" ad, listen here first!
Champions Online: Meet Defender
Star Trek Online: Meet Starfleet
Neverwinter: Meet Sgt. Knox

April 23rd: Official Schedule Released!

April 22nd: Costume Contest Themes -- This gives everyone one week to prepare for the Costume Contests.  Many of the themes are able to use costumes from past Costume Contest Thursday competitions if you want to use those as a basis.
  • Best Tailor Costume (Not changed with DB Edits)
  • Best DB Edited Costume (Within reason: Costume must remain humanoid, no premade NPCs such as Statesman, Lord Recluse, Tyrant, etc.)
  • Best Biography (Costume will be 2nd consideration to the player biography.  Writers welcome!)
  • Best Homage Costume
  • Best Rogues and Vigilantes
  • Best Villains
  • Best Heroes
As last year, we will hold a final costume contest for those who place in the prior contests.  For the final contest, you must be present to win.

Good luck!

April 14th: Changes in the Cape Radio Lineup -- DJ Arcade is not able to appear, but we'll have the following DJ stepping in --
  • One Hit Wonder -- One of the original DJs of Cape Radio, Wondie has a massive music library and is ready for any situation. Host of Up All Night.
The header graphic above will be updated pending one last update needed.  Stay tuned.

April 7th: Although Paragon Radio (formerly SaveCOH Radio) committed to the event last year merely hours after the 12th Anniversary, Paragon Radio confirmed today that will be at the 13th Anniversary at the steps of Paragon City Hall from 9pm until 11pm.  Live coverage in Atlas Park!  Two hours!  Call in and say Hi to Pogoman on the air! 

April 3rd: We now have The Cape's official support!  DJs that night scheduled to appear:
  • Attercap -- Power Pop king, and CatGirl Afficionado.  Hosts Streaming With(out) Attercap, and annual specials.
  • DJ Angel -- Multi-talented artist and fan of cover songs. Host of Celestial Kisses.
  • DJ Amethyst -- Funny lady with a deceptively large music library of pop music, co-host of Mischief Management.
  • DJ Nexus -- Rock and Roll Historian, Gamer, and co-host of Mischief Management.
  • DJ Arcade -- Video Game Soundtrack enthusiast. Host of Enter Player One.
So, we're looking at a very broad and fun setlist that night!  All we need now is you! :D

April 2nd:  Our partnership with Paragon Dawn continues, as Paragon Dawn will host a show on April 28th.  But not only in their home world of Champions Online, but also in Star Trek Online and Neverwinter for COH Veterans as well.  They also do this for those who cannot run Paragon Chat (regardless of why).  Paragon Dawn is here for the City of Heroes veterans! :)  Check them out!

Depends on the time zone you're referring to.  I've got no plans the day after, so I'm up for staying later, can't speak for the rest of HERC or the audience. :)

Switchboard Operations checking in.  RL temporarily put on hold...and you should see how funny everyone looks just frozen in mid-action.  ;-)  Will be present at the party site starting 2pm Eastern, until "official" end at 11pm Eastern. 

"Switchboard" is communications hub.  I'll be keeping an eye on all activities, making sure everything is going well.  If you need something, ask me.  If someone seems to be DCing, let me know.  If there's a problem, I'll help sort it out.  If you have asked someone for something, and aren't getting the reply you need, let me know, and I'll track it until it's resolved. 

IE, anything nobody else has time for.  My job is to free you from having to handle the unexpected, so you can do your own job without worry.  (crossing fingers) 

If all else fails, just ask me, and if it isn't my job, I'll find out whose job it is, and get them on it. 

The Buck Stops Here at Switchboard Station
Liberty and a plethora of others.  Altaholic.  SG Starfire.
"...and it's never too late to stop being afraid..."

I won't be able to attend live for the bulk of the entertainment/vigil, but I'll likely be parking a character near the capitol building.

correction, to the broadcast tonight! Since we published the show as two hours. Listeners can hear the full two hours of Paragon radio LIVE tonight! Usually when we schedule a 90 minute show, the "after party can only be heard at a later date. So, since we are airing live bonus time, the listeners get live bonus time too!! :)
