This is a long term family effort creating & openly sharing tools against individual & collective suicide (i.e. extinction) & for the manifestation of the worlds we have all seen in our dreams & carry in our hearts.
Intergalactic Multiversity for Magic & Wonder is a rescue mission to Earth for averting the Sixth Mass Extinction (i.e. collective suicide). IMMW – The Game is a toy & tool which builds the IMMW campus anywhere a group of people decide to play & which also raises the resources & relations necessary to establish Dragon Egg Inn as a permanent physically rooted IMMW campus.
We are creating digital and physically rooted communities of artists of all varieties, cultivating our capacities to care for one another and create and share without lack or limit. Our long term family quest leads to a world with us as keepers & guardians of a magical & magnificent Inn, festival grounds, residential and artistic retreat campus in a self-sustaining forest community. Our current phase of preparation calls our focus to: sharing and expanding this vision through a theatrical show highlighting bits of our lives as an Indigo Starseed family; keeping the Intergalactic Multiversity for Magic & Wonder (IMMW) portal, an interdimensional intervention on earth against the multitude crises of the present era; and prototyping IMMW - The Game, a free and open source worlding game which utilizes a grand repertoire of art forms for playfully envisioning and enacting mutually supportive artistic communities. Our show premiers summer 2017, the board game prototype will be available as open public access early 2018, and the Intergalactic Multiversity for Magic & Wonder's decentralized analogue-digital hybrid campus is already open for free registration and participation. Through the successful hatching of the show, game, and multiversity around the close of 2017 we will have co-created along with you all the means to manifest our original intention of opening the doors to that most wonderful and fabled place called Dragon Egg Inn before the end of 2018.

They began and continue as eternal and intergalactic beings who presently find themselves on earth and with a growing family that offers ever more potential to their creative interventions. They are both deeply interested in and committed to holistic and sustainable lifeways lightyears beyond the present status quo and have arrived here as beings with a sacred mission strongly rooted in ancient futures, chthonic, cosmic, divine and earthly purpose. As a family they are firmly committed to healthy ways of being, caring for, and regenerating life.

Together their mission on Earth through Intergalactic Multiversity for Magic & Wonder(IMMW) is to create and maintain spaces & also a very particular place of family learning, hospitality, play, refuge & regeneration. As they venture their way to the hearth of Dragon Egg Inn they continue to meet and connect with multitude other artists, fantastic & magical beings, artifacts, & organizations that share a similar purpose and thus expand the relations & sources& the earthly portalsof IMMW. Dragon Egg Inn will be only one of many earthly portals of IMMW; one of many rooted visionary hubs that form the earthly infrastructure and structures of IMMW. The end goal of all this is to transition to Peaceful Life on Earth through creation.
Help cover the basic costs of living for our small family, including our 8 month young star baby Astraea, and we will reward you with not only our eternal gratitude but also: an internet based show of our familysharing entertainment & lessons as we learn and grow; expanded, free, & highly relevant summer activities & encounters through IMMW; AND a complete prototypeof the best free & open source board game you have ever known... Intergalactic Multiversity for Magic & Wonder - The Game.
The board game and show act as complimentary efforts. The show will act as an open and interactive cataloguing of our creative journey. The board game will draw on our full range of skills and talents as a family with in depth and costumed character art on cards, models, and game board as well as intereactive digital elements. The game is ultimately a tool and toy for sharing, teaching, and making real the wonderful worlds we all hold in our hearts. We intend to utilize it as an organizational tool as we build. Your support through the summer literally buys us the necessary time and energy to complete the prototype for this tool, a veritable Garden of Eden Creation Kitof our time, which we have been sent to create and freely share.
Fund our family, the show, IMMW campus & game this summer... & dreams come true...
Envision a grand grounds of immense learning on land containing a wide variety of amenities and services suited to locals and travelers from near and far. All who enter the space of Dragon Egg Inn contribute to and benefit from its ever evolving magics, knowledges and pluralistic vision. The grounds of the inn produce all manner of sustainable foods and medicines in using methods of permaculture, Indigenous horticulture, and Natural farming. The structures house a great diversity of peoples and simultaneously function as a pay-to-stay inn and a public/commons housing effort for displaced people from near and far. Those who come and pay for a room for whatever period of time help to provide a roof for local and refugee individuals and/or families. Yet it is so much more than a place to stay. It is a sort of non-institutional and intergenerational university which delivers enchantment to all in attendance and manifests sustainable futures. Beings from throughout the pluriverse come to give, receive & interact with the greatest works of theater & alternate reality games ever known. Exact geographic coordinates are still undetermined and this could potentially exist anywhere.
