Part of what makes me think it fits is I had a convo last year about how being at burning man felt like it was the end of the world and we were all ok with it. Like we were the last of humanity in the desert waiting for it to end. The end/doom plays a big role in the Cthulu mythos. Even if it was just a cool bar where everyone had some kind of Old Ones ranking or had sculptures/pictures of Lovecraft monsters sounds like a place I'd like to hang out.
Does this sound like something that could work on the playa? Anyone have better ideas of how to utilize Lovecraft in a burner context? Would love to hear feedback.
I've been wanting to do a Carcosa/King In Yellow themed camp (and converted school bus) for quite a while now. (The King In Yellow predates, and influenced, the Lovecraft Mythos, and was incorporated into it. Carcosa predates The King In Yellow.) Part of what appeals to me is that The King In Yellow is at least partially about decadence, which could be fun.
Maybe a literature based village? Or a genre based village? (Which would mean even more reason for me to find a way back to the playa after six years!)
