Choose Your Adventure: Contributors Wanted

Hi burners, new and old!

Does developing an experience based on collective vision excite you?

We are three burners, two virgins and one veteran, with an ambitious
but rewarding theme camp for this year's burn.

Our theme camp is a hexayurt city that holds within itself a story. A
story that other burners will enter, be engaged in, and interact with,
but not a story to follow: a story to make. The branches of this story
will split and unfold through the yurts, shared through key objects,
visuals, music, poetry, and conversation.

The story of the adventure of the city is yet to be told and depends
heavily on the number of participants in the camp. The more
participants, the more yurts, the more branches in the city, the more
complex of a story we can develop, and the wider the range of
experiences we can provide to those that visit our camp.

A hexayurt shelter keeps out the sweltering heat and dust of the day and
the bone-chilling cold of the night, so that the energy otherwise needed to
sweat and de-dust and shiver can be put towards more interesting ends!

Having built such comfortable shelters, wouldn't it be best to open
them up to the rest of the participants?

Logistically:
Teams of 1-5 will build, live in, and orchestrate the story for one hexayurt.
Per-yurt material costs will be similar to

This is not a camp to buy into and have your meals cooked for you.

So what do you say? Do you have a story you want to help tell in a dynamic non-linear manner with a lot of participants?

Are you ready to CYA?

Thanks Ugly... Sadly with the theme camp deadline looming we haven't gotten enough buy in so it looks like we won't be seeing CYA 2012.

Thats really too bad. It would have been awesome to see a staple of my childhood actualized in such a cool way.

Whoa now! Just because the deadlines for official reregistration are looming overhead like bellowing darkness with a glimmer of the Eye of Sauron in the background. Doesn't mean you can't build it. Lot's of fully functioning theme camps have successfully defeated the hordes to secure land to build upon, while saying "damn" to the system.
Do it anyway.

Just make sure one of the options is for people to die of dysentery. That's all I ask.
I have a little bit of Savannah with me. Shhh...

And that you can choose to be a darkwad.... and get eaten by a grue.
If you want drama to stop following you everywhere, try letting go of the leash.

Yah, a Zork style adventure sounds like it would be fun.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.

Scale back if necessary.
You don't need a "theme camp" to have a "theme camp". You may just lack prime real estate.
