Paper People!

shorah Mysterium fans!

Paper People is a time-honored tradition. If you can’t attend Mysterium in-person, you can come in the form of a print-out representing yourself! Many people send pictures of their meatspace selves, but it’s okay to submit an Uru avatar, or your name on a cool background. If you want to come as a paper person, please email your representative image to before midnight EST of Wed July 31. We’ll print you out and put you on our wall of paper people!

Special Event: Robyn Miller Q&A

Shorah Myst fans!

The Mysterium Committee is thrilled to announce that Robyn Miller will be Skyping in to Mysterium on August 3rd to answer some questions. We’re accepting question submissions from the community. Keep in mind that there are time constraints, so not every question will be asked, and questions that are very similar may be combined.

Please submit up to 5 questions to . We know that people like to brainstorm questions with each other on the forum threads and blog post comments, but it’s easier for us to create the final list and not overlook anything if you send them directly to the committee. Please submit your questions by midnight Eastern time Sunday, July 28th so that we can give Robyn an early look at them.
