What is Burning Rhy'Din?
It is a multiverse expansion of the temporary community experiment known as Burning Man on Earth.

As such, it follow the same 10 Principals:

Radical Inclusion
Anyone may be a part of Burning Rhy’Din. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.

Burning Rhy’din is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.

In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorship, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.

Radical Self-reliance
Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.

Radical Self-expression

Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.

Communal Effort
Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.

Civic Responsibility
We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.(edited)
Leaving No Trace
Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.

Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.

Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience(edited)

But really, what is it?

A way to sum up Burning Rhy'din is to say it is a living art installation where every person participates to paint an ever changing canvas.

It is people taking an hour, a day, a week out of their regular lives to simply be.

How do I participate?

You are only limited by your imagination. Create something. Build something. Perform. Throw together a Theme Camp. Volunteer.

Or just simply be present. Be here with us as we Burn
What’s this about theme camps?

Theme camps are where the magic happens. These are communal areas that make up the Village where people put up their art, perform, etc. They are spaces to crash and refresh, share food and drink, and immerse yourself into the culture.

Isn’t there a main theme as well?

Burning Rhy’din’s theme will be #hope-and-fear.

Hope and Fear.

What two concepts occupy our day to day existence more than hope and fear?

Perhaps we wake up to face a new day hopeful for the new beginning... or with a pit of swelling dread in our belly.

Throughout the day they ebb and flow like ocean tides, sometimes gentle swells, but sometimes violent eddies threatening to sweep us away.

They are powerful things that can either make or break our world depending on how we use them.

And so the theme of this years Burn is Hope and Fear.

What is in store for your future? Your present? Your challenge for this theme is to find a way to express your Hope, your Fear--or both. It's entirely up to you to choose how you want to honor (or not) the theme

So how about it? Ready to give Burning a chance? Become a Spark today!

See the OOC thread for full information

This thread is for: Playable theme camp descriptions, art installations, Monster Vehicles, etc. and reactions to attending the festival.

Reminder: Please "register" your theme camps (aka a brief description of what it will be) over in the OOC thread before posting here. Installation can begin IC as of now (because realistically they can take a long time) and people can start posting up descriptions to reflect that. Please try to have any camps up by Saturday July 21st if you can.

Thread is open for outfits, reactions, play as of Saturday July 21st and will remain open through August 11 to give people ample time.

Live event will be held on July 28th for the "final burn" on the Rings of Discord server. If there is interest, I will also host another event on RDI Friday or another night. Please contact me if you are, otherwise I won't know.

Information provided in this thread is available as IC information
