It appears there is a conspiracy taking place and that we now are entangle in its webs. For a few hours we were one of the two camps that were listed as TS-Morpheus in the Navarro Ephiphany website.
Who or what is TS-Morpheus? No one, not even those in Operation Essex is sure.
We think this is an interesting story especially since it is unfolding in real time.
Where will this story lead and what will be unveiled? Maybe this is a mystery that will be solved during Epiphany Night…

Located towards the center of Camp Storyteller is a rotunda known as the Well of Dreams. This domed structure will be constructed from bamboo poles and held together by structural rope, metal rods, and beams. The dome’s walls will be formed from translucent material and it will have a wooden floor, both of which will be covered in isolated and glyph sequences. Visually, the Well of Dreams represents a dream catcher that is bulging from the enormity of the dreams it hold within it’s webs.
The Well of Dreams acts as a theatre that agents can enter into to tell their stories or to experience the stories from other agents which are to be pushed into the portal network by the camp’s Tecthulhu, STORYTELLER. As agents enter into the Well of Dreams, they will pass beneath a dream catcher which is meant to cleanse the agent as with enter the Well’s anomalous space. Within this space, they will notice the faint glow of evanescent lights that will lead them to believe that the dome is internally lit by a combination of LEDs and by videos projected upon the structure’s internal walls and slight billows of XM fog that silently roll along the Well’s floor. At the Well’s heart, there will be a podium holding a book containing the stories that were Collected by the Dreaming Magnus as well as contributions left by agents visiting the camp.
Camp Storyteller’s Tecthulhu, code named “STORYTELLER”, consists of a series of eight luminescent pillars arranged in a spiral, giving the sculpture a visual appearance similar to a flame or crystalline stalagmites. These pillars will be composed of translucent material and will be internally lit by LEDs.
The pillars will be lit up based on the portal’s level, with the center most pillar only lighting up once the portal reaches level 8. The sculpture’s hue will be dependent on the faction that currently owns the portal and will change between GREEN (Enlightened), BLUE (Resistance), or White (Neutral). Each pillar’s base will pulsate between shades of orange and yellow as if it were a flame since the sculpture, as a whole, represents the flames of inspiration which the Dreaming Magnus hopes to ignite within agents through the stories the Tecthulhu, STORYTELLER, spreads through the portal network and into the various dimensional nodes.
The Camp Storyteller PLP is a multimedia experience based on the concept “Our stories, our dreams, uplift us.” The installation consists of an abstract sculpture (the STORYTELLER Tecthulhu), and a dome/rotunda-like structure that will act as a pavilion, which is known as The Well of Dreams. The aim of our project is to create an experience that get agents from around the world to participate with Camp Storyteller through various activities regardless of whether they are attending Camp Navarro Magnus event.
Participating agents may submit their own stories, both fictional and biographic, to Camp Storyteller via social media, messaging apps, using the #CampStoryteller and #TellYourIngressStory hashtags, or through a web form. These stories will be presented at Camp Navarro in written form and/or as part of an audio/video presentation. Additionally, Agents attending Camp Navarro will be encouraged by Camp Storyteller’s Dreaming Magnus to participate in the camp’s various storytelling related activities, including a possible rumored Remote Participation Event hosted by @Relique.
Have you ever felt that you’ve done something memorable? Have you ever dreamt of a story that uplifted your soul? Have you ever envisioned a tale that has taken your mind afloat? Have you ever felt like a wellspring of inspiration to others around you? Or do you have an anecdote so hilarious that it made all those around you to laugh hysterically?
Imagine casting all those feelings, dreams, and stories into the portal network, and having them flow through interdimensional pathways and upon exotic matter streams into infinite realities. You now have the chance to help those stories, wishes, and dreams become something greater.
The Dreaming Magnus would like you to submit your stories to Camp Storyteller so our Tecthulhu, STORYTELLER, could share them through the portal network, allowing them to be experienced by all agents from our world, and beyond. You may do this by using the above link, or via social media using the #TellYourIngressStory, #CampStoryteller, and/or #ShareYourIngressStory hashtags.
Let’s dream in a community that thrives together, acts together, and can help all become so much more than they once were.
The Dreaming Magnus is extremely grateful to announce that the Camp Storyteller Portal Luminance Project (PLP) has been chosen to represent the Dreamer Archetype at the Camp Navarro Magnus 2018 event! At Camp Navarro, we will tell Agents’ stories from around the world, creating bonds, and enriching the portal network with all our dreams, hopes, and desires.
Keep an eye on this website for more information in the coming days and weeks and we hope to see you in the Redwoods this May!
